calvinball Posted July 9, 2004 Share Posted July 9, 2004 The Mets series is "Big" for a few reasons. 1) Every game counts, in a division race that will like go down to the wire, every game is huge. When you are playing one of the division foes, each game is twice as important. 2) The front office is looking a sign of life as they determine whether, or not, it is worth it to make a move for this team. A series win could them the confidence they need to go out and acquire an impact player (assuming there's one available) to aid in the stretch run. 3) This is the last series before the All-Star break, and how well the Marlins perform this series will go a long ways in determining the mood of the organization over the break. A series win here could be the boost the organization needs. We don't want players and coaches brooding over the break, and we certainly don't want to sink into a losing attitude. Rather, we need something positive to happen, so we can rest confident over the break and come back ready to take on the world. 4) It's fun to win! Go Marlins!
