Marlins using newspaper headlines for motivation

15 Comments

From Joe Capozzi, the Marlins beat writer at the Palm Beach Post:

That was the headline after the Marlins’ 4-1 loss to the Phillies on Friday night. The Fish rode young starter Jose Fernandez to a 2-0 win on Saturday and will try to split this four-game set with Philadelphia on Sunday.

The sadsack Marlins — that’s admittedly kind of catchy — are currently 9-22 with a -51 run differential.
