How about them apples: The Florida Marlins are 7 and 1. The team holds the best record in baseball and have equaled the best start in franchise history. Only two other clubs, the 1997 and 2004 clubs also opened the season by going with the same winning record. The beat the Atlanta Braves 10-4. You might remember how the Braves would toy with the fish. Now, it is the opposite. The Marlins are brining the heat to each and every team they have played so far. They only have one loss and that is to the lousy Mets, which we have embarrased several times in their own home. So, can ESPN start giving us some credit? Sure, we don’t have an expensive team, but they are winning and that is what counts. Go Marlins!
