I'm not sure how you can do so well and then do so horrible at the flip of a switch. Maybe the hype reached the players' heads. Everyone, including myself, was talking about the Marlins being "the hottest team in baseball." Now they are "the coldest team in baseball" and colder than dry ice.
There's a long season ahead and I hope that we don't have a year of drastic streaks ahead of us. I'd rather we win a few, lose a few, and so forth, than win seven, lose eight, etc. That's just mental terrorism for any fan. It gives us a confused identity.
I still have faith in the Fish and expect them to at least compete for a playoff spot this season. The Phillies have proven to be the more prepared team and the Braves and Mets are not out of the conversation. The Nationals are unfortunately a punching bag for the NL East and an easy 2-3 game win generator. I guess we can always be happy that we aren't in Washington's position right now.
May the real Florida Marlins please stand up?
