Letters to the NL East, Part 1 of 5.

Dear Florida Marlins,

Congratulations! You’ve been caught stealing from the league! No one was surprised after you were told by the league to stop pocketing the revenue sharing money that you handed your star pitcher a big check.  Why look at free agents or try to actually improve the team in any way?  That’d cost money!  Maybe when you get that new stadium right?

This isn’t to say you don’t have any good players. The aforementioned Josh Johnson and the whiny guy at shortstop are stars.  Some good prospects and young talent floating around down there, but who knows how reliable or talented they will end up being.  Chances are you’ll be the team that’s semi-talented, capable of winning any ballgame but just not that often.  Yes, you’ll probably beat the Washington Nationals, but that’s not exactly high praise.

You’ll be in to Citi Field to open the season this year, and I suspect that’s the closest you’ll be to the Mets in the standings all year.  You’ll play the Mets a series in Puerto Rico this year as well, and despite having last licks, I suspect there will still be more people in the stands rooting for the Mets.

Your disgusted rival from up north,

Optimistic Mets Fan
