I actually think they'll play well for the 1st 2 months and everyone will say marlins marlins marlins!! Then i think they crap the bed and finish 4th in the east with 77 wins. I'm not sold on ozzie with miami. Hanley didn't get along with people at SS now he's moving to a position he doesn't want to be Lo-Mo tweets too much. Zambrano is a nutcase. I don't like the way reyes plays the game. Asking to be pulled out on the last day so he could win a batting title, WHAT A box!!! Reyes is a selfish player. If his legs go that contract will be a turd in the punchbowl
I looked at the numbers of the Starters behind Kershaw and they weren't too bad. Their staff to me id good, not great (behind Kershaw.)However they have a young closer which could end up costing them some very valuable games this year. Their lineup is also pretty solid but very top heavy. So much of baseball depends on injuries, if they are healthy I'm sure they compete and win around 85 games. However any injury will hurt because they really aren't deep.
As for the Marlins go.,Sure you can go and list every flaw a player has and come up with a reason to not like him or a reason why he won't succeed. I think you are looking past the probability of what will happen, to what you think will happen. They have a lot of young talent Sanchez/Morrison/Stanton who combined 70+ home runs. Add Jose Reyes, and Hanley and that lineup is sick with Coghlans speed leading off. This team would have won 80 games this year simply had Josh Johnson stayed healthy all year. Add the additions of Bell and Jose Reyes and this team has potential not many realize. I somewhat just talked myself into thinking they might win the Nl east. Again its all about health but I feel this team is more sustained to handle an injury unless its a big chunk of time for Josh Johnson
