The Miami Marlins are not known for their high-octane play, but they have won four straight World Series and have been a favorite in the East for some time.
While the team was recently criticized for trading for the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, the Marlins have had some big years this season, especially in the postseason, when they are one of the most consistent teams in the league.
The Marlins also have the third-highest payroll in the majors behind the Cleveland Indians and the Toronto Blue Jays, and their success in the playoffs is due in part to their defense, which ranks third in the MLB in home runs allowed (27) and third in slugging percentage (.543).
This year, Miami’s defense has improved and they have the league’s third-best defense in the Majors.
However, while Miami’s offense is in great shape, it’s not without its flaws.
Miami has one of baseball’s lowest home runs per game (0.077), which could lead to some defensive issues if it is forced to defend in the wild-card round.
The team’s defense is also tied for last in runs allowed per game (.216) and slugging (1.04).
Miami has won six straight playoff series against the Yankees, the longest active streak in the American League.
The Yankees won the American Series in 2006.
The Red Sox and Blue Jays have both been dominant in the AL East and are tied for the division title with 10-5 records.
The Indians are tied with the Rays for the second-most wins in the major leagues, but the Indians are not a threat to win the division.
They have a good defense, but their offense is not particularly effective.
The Nationals, Red Sox, Orioles and Yankees have the highest payrolls in the National League, which should allow the Marlins to compete for a playoff spot.
The biggest question mark on the Marlins is their pitching staff.
This year’s starting pitching staff is led by right-hander Zach Britton, who has been one of Major League Baseball’s best starting pitchers for the past three seasons.
Britton has pitched in every game this season and is 4-1 with a 1.98 ERA, but he has allowed 17 runs and five home runs in 17.2 innings.
If the Marlins can manage to get better at the plate, the offense could get back to its previous form.
However the Marlins do not have many veteran players on the roster.
This could mean that the Marlins are looking at free agency.
With the Marlins currently tied for second in the NL East and looking to finish the season in first place, it is difficult to predict what will happen with the team in the coming months.
Miami currently has the fifth-highest projected payroll in baseball.
