The Miami Marlins have been one of the most impressive teams in baseball this year.
Coming into the season not many people expected them to be a playoff team.
But, due to a few intelligent offseason moves the Marlins find themselves right in the thick of things.
As noted by Jon Morosi, the Marlins enter the All-Star break with the second-best record in the National League.

Unfortunately for the Marlins, the only team they trail are their division rivals, the Atlanta Braves.
That is why they are leading the Wild Card instead of their division.
But even being in the playoff picture is a success for this organization.
The addition of manager Skip Schumaker has seemingly made a significant impact on their team.
He has gotten the best out of his players and they have shown no signs of slowing down.
Also, trading for Luis Arraez before the season has paid dividends for the Fish.
He is the best hitter in baseball, and chasing the first .400 batting season since Ted Williams.
Arraez has a batting average of .383 on the year and he leads baseball in hits with 126.
Also, he leads baseball in on-base percentage with a .434 mark.
The Marlins can no longer be seen as a fluke.
They have a pitching staff that can play late into the season and shut down elite offenses.
It will be interesting to see if they make any moves at the trade deadline.
Adding another premier bat could go a long way in making this a memorable season in Miami.NEXT: Marlins Insider Explains Surprising Eury Perez Decision
