Following a winter that saw them jettison a whole bunch of talent, the Miami Marlins lost 100 games in 2013.
So far in 2014, however, things are a lot better. The Marlins are 5-2 out of the gate and have indeed looked the part of a quality ballclub.
Regarding what it will take for this to continue, MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer is here to share his thoughts.
There’s potentially a major part waiting to be added to a Miami starting rotation that’s already young and talented, and there’s a youngster in Miami’s lineup who must rebound from a slow start. But more than anything, the big key involves the Marlins keeping Giancarlo Stanton on the field so he can give them more of the explosive production he’s provided in the early going.
