What are three presents the Miami Marlins should receive for the holidays and for the 2020 baseball season?
The Miami Marlins offseason has gained some steam since the end of the Baseball Winter Meetings earlier this month. With the front office working to bring in more talent through free agency, the next phase of Derek Jeter’s blueprint is in place for the future.
The Marlins as an organization has done its part to remain on the course Jeter talked about prior to the purchase of the franchise from Jeffrey Loria in at the end of 2017. While the record for the team the past two seasons does not show progress and attendance at home games hover around 10,000 fans per contest, there is change in the air in South Florida.
And as we all know from listening to Cheryl Crow, change will do you good.

How far the Marlins exceed expectations in 2020 really depends on how the team on the parent-level works in concert with the coaching staff. New faces mean new adjustments. New opportunity means new goals for individuals and the roster. Everyone is still working to maintain their spot in the organization. There is no huge blockbuster deal on the horizon.
It does not appear the team will shock the baseball community with a huge deal for a top-shelf free agent. The minor league system is one of the best in the league and will continue to grow as prospects develop. The one thing Jeter and his staff have been adamant about has been the pace of moving plyers along to Miami.
Pitching, which is one of the best in the minors, will be at a premium again this year and has become one of the focal points of other teams this offseason.
Don’t expect any arm to move without there being a slew of presents in return.
As Christmas is here and the Marlins are beginning to enjoy their riches, I take a look at three presents the team is hopeful for in the coming year.
