Last weekend, the Marlins started the mega 7 game series against the phillies to essentially decide a playoff spot, and it was a beatdown of 5 games to 2.
Hahahaha, what a fucking joke the phillies are. So nice to be cheering for another team with a philly division rival. What a trash organization and trash city.
Bryce Harper’s annual salary – $26M. Marlins total payroll – $31M. God what a sick rebuild year this has become. It’s not just a rebuild year; it’s a PLAYOFF rebuild year.
Let’s see how these wins came down…
Thu 9/10: 7-6
Marlins looked tired until the phillies trash bullpen got in the game and we got to work. Starling Marte, the best trade deadline get in all of MLB, hit a three run double to tie the game.
In the bottom of the 9th, we stole third against the shitty catcher that we traded to philly last year (JT Realmuto). That runner was batted in by Jorge Alfaro, the supposedly failed catcher prospect that we got back from philly to replace Realmuto.
Oh the sweet irony. It was the third straight game that Alfaro batted in 2 RBIs.
Fri 9/11: 5-3
This was the second game of a doubleheader and it was a bullpen game, which made things easy because philly’s bullpen sucks so much.
Lewis Brinson, the much hyped prospect from the Yelich trade and presumed bust, got a homer to start things off. He’s actually been having a huge month and looks like he doesn’t suck anymore. Fast as fuck centerfielder stud, here we come…
And again, the game winning RBI went to Alfaro on this infield hit.
It was the fourth straight game that Alfaro batted in 2 RBIs.
Sun 9/13: 2-1
Sixto clock Sunday. Easy money! Man that Realmuto trade was so awesome for us.
What a fucking start for this kid. Can’t wait for everyone to see him in the playoffs.
Sun 9/13: 8-1
The second half of the Sunday doubleheader was a thrashing. Braxton Garrett, a former #7 overall pick who had Tommy John, had an awesome debut. 5 innings, 6 strikeouts, 1 run.
The play of the game came on defense though…
Mon 9/14: 6-2
The Monday matinee capper was another thrashing. Pablo Lopez, another sick young arm in the rotation, went 7 innings for 1 run.
Again, defense was on display. Which of these Willie Mays catches by Matt Joyce is better?
I vote #2
Defense wins championships! If you can’t hit a home run, you’re not scoring on the Marlins. Sucks to be philly.
