MLB has announced the return of their ’30 Clubs in 30 Days’ program to begin on Friday, February 28th. For those of you not familiar with the show, the MLB network travels around to all 30 MLB teams and provide viewers with a hour-long special focused entirely on their team. The Miami Marlins episode will air March 22nd at 7:00pm EST.
This series is a fantastic way for fans to get caught up on all the offseason news with their favorite teams. They provide analysis, stories, and even predictions on where the Marlins will stack up this year in the National League East. For Marlins’ fans, it is a welcome change to actually have the focus be squarely on their team. So often we are an afterthought to the media, only receiving coverage when our owner does something slimy or ridiculous, or if we (heaven forbid) trade away some established players for prospects.
I have always found the 30 clubs in 30 days program to be fair and intriguing, even if I don’t always agree with where they place the Marlins in their predictions. They will most certainly focus on Jose Fernandez and Giancarlo Stanton in this episode, and that will be entertaining to watch in its own right.
Let us know in the comments below if you will be watching the program. We can’t wait!
