Marlins’ scoring problems becoming comical

We knew it would be bad.

But this bad?

We didn’t.

The Marlins didn’t either.

Our Craig Mish of Swings and Mishes summed it up perfectly Tuesday night, after the Marlins were shut out for the eighth time in 40 games — while recording just 10 wins.

So, as I sit here watching the Marlins extend their latest scoreless streak to 19, and 20, and on and on, it provokes a few questions.

Well, not that question. If you’re wondering who that is, that’s Mish in his natural state.

These questions:

Is this the worst team in South Florida sports history?

You seem to think so.

(It was polling at about 52 percent Marlins at last check.)

Now here’s the next question:

Will they lose more games than any team in Major League history?

Entering Wednesday, they were on a pace for 40.5-121.5.

The all-time worst team was the expansion 1962 New York Mets, who went 40-120.

It’s a dead heat! Literally!

And now the all-time worst offense mark:

The Marlins entered Wednesday’s game with 103 runs, which is 2.58 runs per game.

The lowest average in history?

That’s 2.46 by the 1908 St. Louis Cardinals.

That’s 111 years.

Or longer than this rebuild may take.
