What is with the Florida Marlins!

I mean it's only the beginning of the season but they have made "Marlin" history by making their best record for a start of a season.

11-1.  Their previous best was 8-1 before losing their next game.

Everythings going right for the fish. They've gone 11-1 and are getting a new ball park.  It's kind of a waste not to get a dome instead of a roof that closes whenever they need it, which we hope might not take to long to close up when they do it!

What's strange is we have gone two times going 8-1 before losing their next game and the first time it was in 1997 the year the Marlins won their first world series!

I hope they can continue their streak and do good later on in the season to go to the playoffs. I think they can do it, if they play like they've played the first 12 games. I'm not that it excited because we have a long season ahead of us.

I'm goiing to try is get info on the trade rumor of Boston wanting Hanley back. I don't think Freddy Gonzalez will do that but if I get more information on it i'll write it to you guys.

If you have any comments about this article or if you disagree or agree with me about the marlins and have a different team to talk to me about, tell me.
