I did some research to find the following information below , listing some team records set (individual and team) and MLB records set and about to be set by season's end and milestones and other various achievements.

Please make any corrections and I would love for anyone else to add to the list below.I know there are more. Like most so and so in a month by a rookie,etc..or whatever.

 

Thanks!

 

 

1) -Florida's first season series sweep of seven games or longer over any opponent in franchise history (2006 Brewers)..so this is the first time the Fish went 7-0 against an opponent in the same season

 

2) -Uggla & Willingham, first time TWO rookies had 20 or more Homers in a season in MLB history

 

3) -First time since 1899 that a team fell 20 games below .500 and came back to reach .500.

 

4) -Cabrera breaks Marlins team records for doubles in a season (46)

 

5) -Most wins by a rookie pitching staff (team record) apparently close to breaking MLB record held in 1938 by the Senators.

 

6) -Cabrera's three RBIs gave him 101 for the season. At 23, he became the third youngest player in history to have three consecutive 100-RBI seasons. The only players who did it at a younger age were Mel Ott (22) and Ted Williams (23).

 

7) -Cabrera becomes the sixth-youngest man in major league history to reach the century mark in CAREER HOME RUNS. The four active players who have reached 100 before their 24th birthdays are Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Andruw Jones and Albert Pujols.

 

8) -Uggla (with one more RBI) will set club rookie record (Conine had 79)

 

9) -Uggla blasted a 449-foot homer into the second deck "Big Mac land" in Busch Stadium section of left field. The shot is the longest thus far in the new Busch Stadium

 

10) -Marlins two 9-game winning streaks mark the first time in team history to have two winning streaks that long in the same season (9 game winning streak/s ties club history for longest)

 

11) -Mike Jacobs set Marlins club record for doubles by a "rookie" in a season (34)

 

12) -Hanley Ramirez set Marlins ROOKIE record of most triples in a season (9)

 

13) -Hanley Ramirez set a Marlins club record for most runs scored in a season by a rookie..passing Quilvio Veras's 1995 mark of 85.Hanley has over 100 scored..he will of obliterated the mark by a mile.Dan Uggla also surpassed the 85 runs set by Veras..but is trailing Hanley and will end second to Ramirez.

 

14) -If Uggla hits 5 more hrs..he will tie Preston Wilson's Marlins rookie mark for a season (26).

 

15) -Uggla is close to the MLB 1938 record of Joe Gordon for home runs by a rookie second baseman (25).

 

16) -H.Ramirez on a pace to break the Marlins rookie hits record in a season (174 by Conine)

 

17) -H. Ramirez on pace to easily break Conine's rookie record for most "at bats" in a season.

 

18) -If Uggla hits above .293 by season's end, he will also break Conine's club rookie batting avg in a season (Uggla at .290 right now)

 

19) -Scott Olsen has 140 K's after today's game...only 2 short of Willis's Club record of 142 in a season...Olsen will break the record obviously!

 

20)-Josh Johnson's 2.99 era is the lowest single season era by a starting pitcher for the Marlins since the 3.23 ERA of Chuck Smith in 2000. Will set the record if he keeps his era under that of course..by season's end.

 

21) -Olson and Johnson both have 12 wins..on pace to break Willis's rookie club mark of 14 wins.

 

22) -Marlins are the first team to have three rookie pitchers with 10 wins or more since the 1952 Brooklyn Dodgers.

 

23) -The Marlins are the only current MLB team to have 16 players born in the 1980s.

 

24) -Most wins ever by a MLB rookie starting pitching staff in a single season.

 

25) -Marlins' win-loss record since May 22 (57-37) trails only the Mets (58-34)

 

26) -Josh Willingham reached the 100-hit mark on Friday night, joining his rookie teammates Hanley Ramirez, Dan Uggla, and Mike Jacobs, who had already done so. With 35 games still to play, the Marlins became only the fourth team in the live-ball era with four rookies with 100 or more hits.

 

27) -The Marlins batted around in both the first and second innings in their game against the Nationals on 8/22/06. The Marlins are the only National League team to do that this season, and they've done it twice!!!! (also on May 14 against the Pirates).

 

28) -The 2006 Marlins joined an elite group when Hanley Ramirez hit his 12th home run, thereby giving Florida four rookies with at least 12 home runs (Dan Uggla, Josh Willingham and Mike Jacobs are the others). According to Elias, only TWO other teams in big-league history had at least four rookies with a dozen dingers: the 1958 Giants (Orlando Cepeda 25, Willie Kirkland 14, Bob Schmidt 14, Leon Wagner 13 and Jimmy Davenport 12) and the 1999 Marlins (Preston Wilson 26, Alex Gonzalez 14, Bruce Aven 12 and Mike Lowell 12).

 

29) -Wes Helms of the Marlins is the first player with three pinch-hit triples in one season since Casey Candaele had three for the Astros in 1990.

 

30) -Dan Uggla is just the fourth player in the last 50 years to record 20 home runs and 75 RBI in his DEBUT season in the majors.

 

***Albert Pujols, Orlando Cepeda and Frank Robinson are the only others.

 

What makes this amazing is that this is NOT just a rookie record but a debut record (some players will have 30 or 40 at bats and not qualify as a rookie but are still noted in playing in their debut year). Uggla never played in the majors before...so this qualifies as a DEBUT year...making the record even more significant..and doing it as a 2nd baseman is even more significant.Of course, getting FULL playing time in your debut year is rare in the annals of MLB.Most rookies still qualify as rookies in their 2nd or 3rd MLB seasons due to lack of at bats or games played.

 

31) -Miguel Cabrera set a Marlins record for RBI in a month by driving in his 31st run of August with a solo homer off Brewers starter Chris Capuano on Sunday.Breaking Sheffield's and Alou's 30 RIBI record.

 

32) Marlins starting pitching staff have driven in more runs (RBI) than any other Marlins pitching staff in Marlins franchise history

 

33)Anibal Sanchez broke the Marlins record for consecutive scoreless innings of 24 1/3.

Wouldn't D-Trains ERA from last year take this record?

Yeah, if we're going by lower than 3.23 from 2000 on (don't know why, but whatever).

 

If anyone's interested, the top-10 for single season ERA by a starting pitcher is:

 

Kevin Brown - 1.89 '96

Dontrelle Willis 2.63 2005

Kevin Brown 2.69 1997

Al Leiter 2.93 1996

Carl Pavano 3.00 2004

A.J. Burnett 3.30 2002

Josh Beckett 3.38 2005

Pat Rapp 3.44 1995

A.J. Burnett 3.44 2005

Mark Redman 3.59 2003

He must have meant the Marlins team record for the lowest ERA posted by a rookie starting pitcher, which JJ is on pace to setting. A couple more records you could add for Josh Johnson setting (or possibly to set) would be:

 

- The first rookie starting pitcher to lead a league in ERA since Mark Fidrych accomplished that feat in 1976 with the Detroit Tigers.

- Johnson, along with Francisco Liriano, became the first pair of rookies to simultaneously lead each league in ERA in August.

 

Also, I believe Dontrelle has the rookie strikeout record with 142 in 2003. Both Scott Olsen (133) and Johnson (123) have a very good chance of surpassing that record.

Yes,I did mean rookie starter.Thanks for the correction and also for adding the Fidrych info. That would be amazing if Josh led the NL in era by season's end!

 

 

11) -Mike Jacobs set Marlins club record for doubles by a "rookie" in a season (34)

 

 

 

I think Hanley just broke his record today with 3 doubles! haha

 

 

 

Damn,rookies are topping eachother as each game goes by! :notworthy

I think Hanley has 35 doubles now!thanks.

With the Fidrych reference, we need to call JJ "big bird."
