Marlins Finally Win Again! Now a Reputable News Source Says They Will Win It All

Time to shave that Rasputin-length win-beard. The Marlins are at last back in the win column after a season start that can only be described as more confusing than Charlie Crist's sexuality.

Somehow the Fish won 11 freaking games before they lost two and then decided to go on a seven-game sucking binge (including a three-game sweep by the Pittsburgh "Maybe Even Worse at Baseball than the Kansas City Royals" Pirates) before finally beating the Mets last night behind two Jorge Cantu bombs.

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
