In what hasn't exactly been the most enjoyable season for Miami Marlins fans, every fifth day has been a reward for the four prior. Jose Fernandez's story has been well documented, and beyond his dominance on the mound, his genuine upbeat personality and demeanor on the baseball field have been a breath of fresh air for Marlins fans grasping for anything positive to take away from what has otherwise been a miserable season.

For a guy who was originally slated to start the year in the minors, Fernandez has certainly proven himself as major-league caliber in his first year. In fact, the rookie has dominated to a point that he might just be the Baseball Jesus. We are not entirely sure he's human. You'll have your own doubts after reliving the most dominant, most memorable, and downright filthiest moments of his 2013 rookie season.
