The Florida Marlins are rebuilding with a rookie skipper at the helm. Yet they had one nine straight games before losing 4-0 to Baltimore. Dontrelle Willis & Brian Moehler are the only Marlins who’ve answered affirmatively to the question, “Who wants to be a millionaire?”, $4,350,000 for DW and $1,500,000 for BM. Florida’s payroll is 30th among MLB teams at $14.3 million. The NY Yankees rank #1 at $198.6 million. Joe Girardi is the rookie manager for these overachievers. Girardi learned his smarts at Northwestern University and learned his winning ways from Joe Torre & the Yankees. It won’t be long before the Marlins are back in the playoff picture for years to come, built on a solid foundation. But they may have to change locations, as there seem to be a lot of distractions in South Florida, and fans have too many other things to do, go figure.
