The Miami Marlins have been one of the most surprising ball clubs this year. In a good way. They came into the season with not many expectations to do anything this year, but they have been cruising all year.
The Marlins currently sit in second place in the National League East, just five games back from the Atlanta Braves for first place. As of right now they have a 40-31 record. If the season ended today, they would be the first wild card in the National League.
There getting production from everyone. They're 10th in the MLB for average, and they have a solid team ERA, 4.17, 14th in all of MLB. The ERA may not be the best, but it's better then they expected. Although the offense has been one of the best in all of MLB.
Obviously it's unknown how long the Miami Marlins will be able to keep this great season going. It's great for baseball to have a team who doesn't spend much, like the Marlins, who have just the 24th highest payroll in all of MLB.
