Who are these Marlins? Marcell Ozuna, not yet a household name, is one of them. These Marlins don't roll over and boy can they hit. With 16 hits on Sunday, 10 of those hits against phenom Matt Harvey, the Marlins are good. When they play the Mets that is. The Marlins now have 16 victories, 6 of them against the Mets.
When the most entertaining aspect of a 3-game series occurs when Keith Hernandez blurts out from his microphone, "my pencil disappeared," during Sunday's broadcast you can imagine what transpired in Miami this weekend. Maybe the Mets were trying to save their precious 1962 season of futility when they lost 120 games. With this weekend's sweep of the Mets by the Marlins, Miami's pursuit of that record has been derailed at the moment.
I've said it before with this Mets team and I'll say it again. To find any enjoyment from this season you're going to have to find small positives to get you by. Ike Davis had a solid 2-for-4 with a HR and 3 RBI.
Mets have now lost 3 after winning 5. Ouch!
