Miami Marlins Fish Flash 6/28
Morning Marlin Maniacs. Trusting you’re flying as high as Miguel Rojas this fine Tuesday. The Miami Marlins enjoyed a well-deserved off day following taking three out of four from the best team in MLB, the Chicago Cubs. They wake up in the playoffs, technically first place in the National League Wild Card standings, and are six games over .500 for the first time in forever; well, June 2012 to be exact. They haven’t had a losing month yet this season, and have played nearly half the season at this point. Four games against the Braves could flip the script in a hurry, but right now, it’s a good time to be a Marlins fan.
