3 Bold Predictions for the Miami Marlins in the Second Half of the Season

It's very bold of Miami Marlins manager Mike Redmond to argue with an umpire, which eventually led to his first managerial ejection.

One of baseball's cardinal rules is to never make the first or third out at third base. 

This type of thinking has the word "safe" written all over it. 

Does this mean no one should ever go from first to third on a single to right field? Does this mean the Milwaukee Brewers' Carlos Gomez, MLB's leader in triples, should never stretch a double into a triple when he has the speed to make it work? And why is making the first or third out at third base so egregious when the name of the game is to not make outs at all?

In this cyberspace, you go from first to third on a single to right field, unless you're Bengie Molina. In this cyberspace, you stretch a double into a triple if you've got Usain Bolt's speed. Heck, you are encouraged to stretch a double into an inside-the-park home run if you've got Usain Bolt's speed. In this cyberspace, all outs are egregious.

In other words, this cyberspace sees bold as an opportunity to do what many thought couldn't be done, and playing safe as taking the easy way out.

With that said, here are three bold Miami Marlins  predictions for the second half of the season.
