It is officially official:
The odds are slim, but at the very least, McKeon keeps things interesting for the rest of us. Plus, maybe LoMo teaches the old man how to use Twitter.McKeon made no promises in this afternoon's press conference, but acknowledged that the Marlins have enough talent to compete for a playoff spot. "There is enough talent in that room to maybe play in October," he said.
He did warn, "I'm not a miracle worker," though. With the Marlins sitting 12.5 games behind the first-place Philadelphia Phillies (and 7.5 games back in the NL Wild Card Standings), the team would have to finish the season 58-22 to win 90 games and reasonably expect to be in the playoff hunt.
