|Even with Han-Ram on the bench, the streak ended.|
So who in hell are these guys? The bumbling, Tom Emanksi-Instructional-Video-needing, half-drunken hobos stumbling through Pittsburgh? Or the world-beating, underdog made-for-TV-Lifetime-movie heroes of underpaid schmucks everywhere who started 11-1?
Considering they beat the corpse of Livan Hernandez last night and their supposed ace Ricky Nolasco barely struggled through the fifth, they're unfortunately still looking closer to the former.
But at least one highly trusted news source says this is the year the Marlins will go all the way.
MIAMI--After enduring five years of mediocrity since a 2003 World Series title that was itself preceded by five years of mediocrity, the Florida Marlins will evidently go ahead and win the World Series again if their 11-2 start to the season is any indication. "I guess they're doing that thing where no one will really completely believe in them all year, but they'll be unstoppable in the playoffs, beat some interesting team like the Cubs along the way, and win it all," broadcaster Tim Kurkjian said. "Then I guess they'll sell off all their good players, play a bunch of 17-year-olds, lose 100 games, nuke their own fan base, and somehow blame it on not having their new stadium yet. I see." Kurkjian then made a note to himself to pick the Marlins to win the World Series in 2015.
