Miami Marlins Meshing Early

The new-look Miami Marlins seem to be adapting to the new stadium quite well. Though the sample size is too small to reveal any sort of statistical anomaly, it appears there is an intangible amongst the players we need to be aware of this season.

What was essentially a meaningless exhibition game against the Yankees on Sunday turned into a "meshing moment" for the top of the Marlins batting order? Some of us have seen the Texas Rangers pull out the old reindeer antlers after scoring a run or hitting a double. They look like a bunch of goof balls waving around their hands by their head like they're trying to crash a family photo. It seems as though Jose Reyes, Emilio Bonifacio, and Hanley Ramirez apparently have their own inside gesture to let each other know they are on the same page. After all three reached base and forced an early run against Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda, they held up a sideways peace sign to their eye in acknowledging each other’s efforts.

This kind of camaraderie affirms that the attitude is positive in the Miami clubhouse and the guys are having fun. Questions about an unbalanced chemistry amongst the star players are about to be hushed completely.
