Florida Marlins

Summary 80-82 C

The Marlins were never more than 4 games above .500, and never more than 6 games below. They were never in the pennant race, really: they were 5 back by May 9, and never really got closer. End of month games back: April 3, May 5, June 8½, July 6½, August 10½, September 18. Their best month was July, but even that was luck, as they were outscored for the month. They were an average team, and basically played nice, steady .500 ball all season.

Hitters 71.25-90.75 D

Uggla (since traded) and Ramirez were their offensive standouts. Young (20 years old) Mike Stanton appeared partway through the season and showed great promise. But Cantu, Coghlan, and Cody Ross (should they avoid guys whose names start with C?) were all pretty bad, as was Paulino behind the plate. Sanchez hit OK, but not what you want from a first baseman. The offense was disappointing, to say the least.

Starters 87-75 B

Josh Johnson was terrific, and a serious Cy Young contender. Anibel Sanchez and Ricky Nolasco were both very good. Chris Volstad was mediocre and Nate Robertson was Bad. Of the fill-ins, Alex Sanabia showed real promise in 12 starts. This youthful pitching rotation is likely to only get better, though Johnson will be hard-put to duplicate this wonderful season, even if he was only 13-12 (see: Felix Hernandez).

Relievers 91/481 B-

The bullpen was the equal of the rotation, with the top five relievers by innings pitched all rated B or A. Hensley in particular was phenomenal, posting only 2 yikes and no YIKES in 68 appearances, which is very rare indeed. And, again, their pitchers are mostly very young, so this bodes well for the future. On the other hand, the Marlins used an amazing NUMBER of relievers (see Chart). Once again, a D lineup and a B pitching staff gives you a C team.
