Complete Miami Marlins 2014 Season Preview

It's a brand new season for Jose Fernandez, left, and Giancarlo Stanton. Will 2014 be better than 2013?

Goodbye, spring training. Hello, Opening Day.

OK, we're five days away from that being official, but many players and fans look forward to Opening Day the same way people look at New Year's Day as a clean slate. The Miami Marlins are no exception. After all, this is a franchise that has plenty to play for, believe it or not.

The Marlins are in year two of their latest rebuilding project and are coming off of a 100-loss season. Moreover, they have every intention to end a streak of four consecutive seasons where they have lost more games than the previous year.

About the only way for the Marlins and their fans to dread the 2014 season is if Miss Cleo predicted pitching phenom Jose Fernandez would suffer a career-threatening injury on Opening Day, All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton declared he wouldn't sign a long-term extension to stay with the organization and the Marlins lose at least 120 games this year. The odds of all three happening at once are about as good as someone winning Warren Buffett's $1 Billion Bracket Challenge.
