ESPN Puts Dagger in heart

What happened to the Marlins in 2003 made for one sensational Fish story. But this year, their story is a different kind of tale -- a tale about the one that got away.

We were leading the race most of September. Being 4.5 gms out behind like 4 teams with what 12 days left is impossible.

Don't get your hopes up guys.

The article is fair. I agree that MLB screwed us over with scheduling. There is no reason why we couldnt have had at least 1 off day somewhere in here. And that one 'home game' in Wrigley. The Marlins didnt make excuses but just believed they would somehow overcome it all. They still believe. And they will continue to fight - got to love that. It is sad because I really dont think the other teams in the WC race are better than the Marlins. Especially the Giants who made some kind of deal with the devil.

Although I dont agree that our playoff hopes were 'all but dashed' after splitting the DH with the Cubs. I dont see how losing one game to them makes that big of a difference at this point. Sure, winning both would be nice, but they arent even the WC leader at this point. But the Cubs did luck out by having the series get washed out.

I don't think the article is negative all to tell you the truth. It shows the Marlins' players in a positive light for not blaming the hurricane, but honestly if it never comes life is alot different. We'll never know how far this team would have gotten, but oh well.

 

Then again, once this year we did make up 5 games in 6 days. I'm down to do that again.

a sad but true article. the hurricanes and all that hurt us, but more importantly, we killed ourselves by playing average baseball throughout the mid-season.

 

but there is always next year, and there will be a next year.

 

until then, enjoy the last few games of the year. our players need our support even when they are not winning.
