If this isn't a two game sweep, then I demand a refund.

Justin Ruggiano (93 wRC+) and Ricky Nolasco (85 FIP-) lead the Marlins with 1.1 fWAR. Evan Longoria (162 wRC+, 2.8 WAR), James Loney (148 wRC+, 1.4 WAR), Desmond Jennings (88 wRC+, 1.1 WAR), and Kelly Johnson (134 wRC+, 1.1 WAR) have all matched or superseded that win total.

Say what you will about the Houston Astros and their utterly hopeless pitching, but the Miami Marlins have something historically special about their offense.
