The Miami Marlins have gone up in smoke

The Miami Marlins have gone up in smoke

Well, folks, it appears I'm made of ice, because I can't get enough of this Marlins fire sale.

Once the announcement was made that Christian Yelich was headed to Milwaukee, it signaled that it was time to officially declare the Miami Marlins a joke.

I'm so happy for so many reasons that I don't even know where to begin. I suppose the most obvious would be that there's one less team in the NL East. Advantage: Mets. Can't finish behind a team that practically doesn't exist. That's science.

We also should have some guaranteed wins under our belt. The Mets are starting the season with -- let's be conservative, here -- at least 10 wins. That could certainly help in the Wild Card chase, since the unbalanced schedule forces the Mets to play their division rivals about 100 times a season.

Plus, I'm enjoying Derek Jeter going into full heel mode and just blowing this team, which probably was a pitching piece of two away from contention, up. They're smoked, and I (along with many others) am choosing to blame him. If the people of Miami choose to blame El Capitan, too, well that's just extra icing on the cake.

And don't think I've forgotten about those final games in 2007 and 2008 either. 

Miami road trips are officially off days for the players. Sit everyone. Play the bench. Let our guys rest in Miami. Not the worst place to have some down time.

So farewell for now, Marlins. It's been a not-so-fun ride. Good luck and good riddance.

PS - If these guys trade JT Realmuto to the Nationals, there is no justice in this world.
