This is quite interesting in that the Marlins are predicted to have the fourth best chance to win it all. Which to be real honest is a little higher than I would have thought. Maybe there is some insider information about the free agency market which the odds makers are privilege to but I know nothing about. Maybe it is pure speculation on their part.  Who knows.

One thing is for certain, at this point in the 2006 season, the Marlins are looking pretty good.
