2010 Florida Marlins Team Preview

The Marlins challenged for a playoff spot last year, and should again this season.

The pitching staff is solid, led by ace Josh Johnson, with Anibal Sanchez, Nate Robertson, Chris Volstad and Ricky Nolasco filling out the rotation.

Brian Sanches was placed on the 15 day DL to start the season, and his return should help bolster a pretty decent bullpen.

2009 NL Rookie of the year Chris Coghlan returns to leadoff this season. 2B Dan Uggla had 6 errors in the spring and hopefully for Marlins fans it is not a sign of things to come. The rest of the lineup is solid, with Hanley Ramirez and Cody Ross leading the way.

The Marlins should be in the wild card hunt this year.
