Officially halfway through the season.


Recommended Posts

.500 record.

15-15.

Do you think that the Marlins would need to go something around 20-10 over the next 30 games to realistically make the Post season. Or with the way every thing is going they might have a chance hovering around the .500 mark the rest of the way?

 

(Of course, being the Marlins fan that I am, I'm secretly wishing around a 25-5 rest of the season. 😅)

I think it will take just a few games better than .500 to cement a spot unless one of the Phils Mets or Nats get super hot out of nowhere. 

With this shortened schedule I've been thinking since July about how much of a difference a good run can make in the standings and I think the Marlins have already had several strong runs. Might just take .500 with one or two really good weeks to lock it in.

15-15 at the turn after the corona is a dream.

Yep. I feel like this is kinda under-discussed. They got wrecked by Covid, lost half the team and 60% of the starting rotation. To be 15-15 after that, and all these double-headers, is fantastic.

And with what was considered a difficult schedule.

Also something that I would do strategy wise is to use the off day on Thursday to switch Sixto and Elieser in the rotation. That way Elieser and Trevor Rogers, who are clearly the bottom 2 starters in the rotation, are lined up to  start on the two doubleheaders against Philly. It would maximize Sixto so he can go more than 7 innings and Elieser who would have less pressure to face the 3rd time in the order.

If the Marlins can somehow go into the 1st game against the Phillies 19-19 then I firmly believe that we will go to the playoffs.

Are we talking about that 7 game series? That seems to be the most important series of the season.

You won!

Marlins went into that first game vs the Phillies on September 10th at exactly 19-19.
