You may recall that a few das ago I posted a story on this site tagged ‘The Next 3 Days Are The Most Important Days For 2009 Florida Marlins!!!’
And now here we sit three days later.
The Marlins did their part…
The Giants did their part…
And The Rockies did their part too…
You see the Marlins went to St. Louis to face the mighty Cardinals. It was a test of the Marlins to see if they could compete with the league’s best teams and they won the series 2-1. The Marlins have won 6 of their last 10 games, but the Phillies have been doing even better going 7-3. With a full 7 game lead over the Marlins, the Phillies have been clicking on all cylinders and look to have the NL East locked up. Still, the Phils and Marlins will battle 6 more times in the next 3 weeks so anything can happen, but it is very unlikely that the Phillies will fall apart at this point.
In the series between the Rockies and Giants, both teams did exactly what was needed. The Rockies lost and the Giants won. And even though the Rockies still hold a 3 1/2 game lead of San Fran and a 4 1/2 game lead over ‘The Fish’ both teams have been playing better than the leader and the gap has started to close. It looks like the race for the NL Wild Card will carry on for a few more weeks, and the Marlins are right in the thick of it!!!
So where do the three teams go from here?? The Marlins are set for a 4-game series against the lowly Reds. The Giants prepare to travel to LA to take on the first place Dodgers. And the Rockies have a few days of ‘easy’ games against the last place Diamondbacks.
It’s still anyone’s game. And ’30-Year Old Cardboard’ will be there to cover all of it!!!
Stay tuned. And GO FISH!!!
