What the Florida Marlins need to do

New, comment

As most of you know the Florida Marlins are still in the playoff hunt with only ten games left in the season.  Unfortunately for our favorite Fish, if they are going to make it, they have to rally from behind.

So this begs the question, what do they need to do in the last ten games in order to be playoff bound.  Well, Sports Clubs Stats lays out the percentages, as they see it.

From what I can tell their calculations don't take into account the team you lose to, assuming you lose.  In other words, in real life, losing to the Mets is more devastating than losing to the Reds.  But nonetheless, I think the chart is pretty accurate, given how all the teams ahead of the Marlins are playing at the moment.

So the bottom line is what we all knew before: Keep Winning!  And good things may happen.
