As we get closer to the end of the 2009 baseball season, we should begin to find out who the contenders and pretenders are.
Currently, the Florida Marlins are 6.5 games behind the division leading Phillies. With 41 games left to play they still have a chance to threaten the Phillies for the top spot in the division but they have to maintain their winning ways and hope the Phillies falter.
In the race for the National League Wild Card, ‘The Fish’ are 4 games out of the top spot and are looking up at the Rockies and Giants. This is another race that will go down to the wire and my fingers are crossed that the Marlins remain competitive enough over the last six weeks of the season to challenge for that spot too.
If the last few weeks are any indication as to what the Marlins can do, they should be right in the middle of both races.
Here is a quick summary of they have fared over the last few weeks:
Astros – lost series 2-1
Rockies – won series 2-1
Astros – won series 3-1
Phillies – won series 3-0
