According to the soulless automatons who run the internet site coolstandings.com, Miami has about a 0.1 percent chance of making the playoffs. So if you could travel back in time, like Huey Lewis, and play the 2013 major league championship season* a thousand times, the Marlins might get to the wild card game. Who knows, they might even win it! Not too shabby, right?
* That's what MLB wants you to call the regular season, for some reason.
I know that might sound depressing if you're the Marlins fan, but here's the thing to remember: As late as September 4th, 2011, the St. Louis Cardinals had a 1.8 percent chance of making the playoffs, and they won the World Series 54 days later. I remember the day because that's when I first realized God is dead.
Anyway, those odds are probably wrong, is what I'm saying. Stiff upper lip and all that.
