That's double-digit runs in 3 of the last 4 games.

 

 

As the Astros radio team put it after the 6th homer, "it's starting to look like the Marlins are playing in a slow-pitch softball game."

 

 

At this moment, the Marlins are #1 in the majors in runs scored, and #2 (trailing the Pirates by 1 run) in runs allowed. :lol

 

 

 

Too many positives to list. Basically the entire lineup.

 

Hermida had a huge night at the plate.

 

Not a good start for Nolasco but at least was able to go 5, and the pen was masterful as usual.

 

This bullpen is really really good.

Yikes. Let's just ride this hot streak while we can.

Thats the way I like it to be honest... (not the runs allowed being high, just the runs scored being higher than the runs allowed) If we can stay constant at that, I am all for crappy pitching if offense will keep winning games for us!

I t would be nice if we could score more runs via base hits. We cannot always rely on the big HR.

We didn't have anyone on base because they were too busy rounding them!

 

I'm talking in general. Not just this game. We lead the league in the percentage of HR/runs. I thinks like 56% of runs are by HR.

 

I love the HR but I don't want to have to rely on them.

Jacobs is currently tied for the NL lead with home runs (5).

 

The Marlins are currently tied for the NL lead with home runs as a team (20).

 

The Marlins are only behind Arizona in team OPS.

 

So basically our offense so far has been rivaling Arizona's.

 

Pitching we are last in QS, ERA, and third last in BAA.

Hermida with a nice game, played long ball tonight along with the team. It was good to rock Oswalt and take him outta the game.

 

Good defense especially up the middle and Rabelo welcomed himself to the Marlins with a HR and some hard hit balls. Really liked that after Nolasco gave up the runs the bullpen just shut down the Astors offense.

Sure, we can tell our guys to pull up and try for bunt singles. Face it, we have 6 power hitters in our normal lineup.

You can't hit HR all the every game. We have to be able to manufacture runs.

Positives

1. The offense. Everyone is hitting, and it is beautiful. Btw, that was Roy Oswalt pitching for the other team. He's pretty darn good. :thumbup

2. The bullpen. Stopped the bleeding, led by Justin Miller (2 scoreless innings). Pinto threw a scoreless 8th, and Lindstrom brought the gas in the 9th, ending it beautifully (making Lance Berkman look silly). There are just so many options in that bullpen.

3. I don't think Nolasco pitched as bad as the #'s indicate. 1 of the runs was unearned. The Berkman HR doesn't leave in too many stadiums, either. He wasn't great, but pitching in a normal park, the #'s would've looked better.

4. That double play that Hanley and Andino turned in the 9th was sweet. It wasn't the best play we've made all year, but they just looked so calm and easy doing it. More signs of improved defense.

 

Negatives

1. Jacobs looked shaky at 1B tonight (seriously, there's nothing much to comment on in this section). :mis2

I've long been a fan of Nolasco as a SP and always been somewhat resistant to the sentiment of many that he belongs in the pen, but I get it a bit more now. Assuming the rest of the rotation can materialize well without him, I'd like to see him get back to doing the long relief work. His scoreless innings to start the season stand in stark contrast to his start tonight. Although I am willing to conceivably attribute a little of that to familiarity with Rabelo, Mike did work just fine with the RPs.

 

The hitting - what can we say that hasn't been said? Hermida looks great, both he and Jake making up for lost time, not wanting to be left behind as the guys from 06 who haven't blossomed yet. If this really is their year, and I've said this before, our offense can probably be even better than last year, even without Cabrera.

 

Nice to see Rabelo make some noise with his first hit as a Marlin. Andino...he wants to stay. There's gonna a tough decision to make when De Aza is healthy. Plus it adds some flexibility with Uggla, but I hope they still let Uggla work things out, rather then creating somekind of platoon situation.

 

Still a flawed player, but I hope Cantu continues to earn his spot, and quiet down his naysayers. His bomb made #2 on Sportscenter top plays.

 

All in all, we continue to hit great. Presley deserves credit. Hopefully the team trainers as well. I just hope we can keep those key Lefty bats that were the heart of our order today healthy.

 

Oh yeah, and the pen continues to deliver. Helps that they got some rest the last two games + the day off on Tuesday I'm sure, so give Hendrickson & Oly an assist here.
