Who Miami Marlins Fans Should Root For In LCS, World Series
Morning Marlin Maniacs, and welcome to another Marlins free postseason. How’s October treating you?

Another part is probably SoFla sports fan first and foremost though, and no amount of candy or seasonal cinematic classics can distract you from the fact the Marlins aren’t playing, the Dolphins are terrible, the Hurricanes just lost seven straight to FSU, the Heat broke your heart all offseason to the point you don’t care when they start, and that neither hockey nor college basketball season has started yet.
It’s possible I’m projecting.
It’s also possible that if you don’t enjoy costumes, candy, and candy corn concerned cinematic classics- not to mention overused alliteration- that you should feel free to go elsewhere. Don’t want to know you.
But for those continuing on, those looking to the 2016 MLB playoffs for the excitement that only baseball can bring, it’s time to figure out who to root for. Assuming you don’t have a Second City reason- pun not necessarily intended- to support a particular remaining squad, what added reasons can we dig up?
Awesome, stand alone storylines? Ties to the Marlins? Teams we hate because of what they do to the Marlins? We’ll find a reason that suits you.
Blue Jays, Cubs, Dodgers, Indians, Nationals. Team by team, let’s dive in.
