Going all the way?

The Marlins pulled off yet another win against the Yankees last night, thanks to Brad Penny's great pitching (and timely hitting). Maybe the result would have been different had Yankee starter David Wells not been forced to leave the game after just one inning - the Marlins then scored four runs off reliever Jose Contreras, and survived a ninth-inning rally by New York to win the game 6-4.

Then again, maybe it's got nothing to do with Wells or Contreras or Penny or anybody - maybe Florida's success is simply down to the Marlins' mojo...
