A lot can change between now and the July 30th MLB Trade Deadline for the Miami Marlins. 

Will the Miami Marlins be buyers or sellers? Which positions of need are they looking to acquire? Which players might they possibly look to trade?

These are only a few questions that will be asked between now and then, with the answers only becoming clearer over time.

The Marlins currently stand at 18-22 overall, and 4th in the NL East through the first 40 games of the season. While Miami has gotten phenomenal performances so far this season from a few notable players both at the plate, and on the mound, there are a few “bold predictions” as you’d say that if they came true would be massive for the Fish.

The Miami Marlins have an important two months ahead of them.

As a team that made the MLB Postseason during the shortened 2020 season, there will be increased pressure to make the playoffs once again in 2021. While they wouldn’t be in the postseason if the season ended today, there is plenty of more baseball to be played.

We are currently about 25% done with 2021 season. One thing that will start to loom closer and closer is the trade deadline. As the deadline draws nearer, noise surrounding trades league-wide will only continue to get louder.

The Marlins are no different from any other team. Noise will continue to get louder and louder surrounding all players on the team, both hitters and pitchers.

Before we ramp-up the trade season with constant trade talk, it’s best to offer some thoughts, or predictions as you’d say, for the time from now until the trade deadline. While normal predictions would be enough, bold predictions could be more impactful, because if they do come true, it could affect the Marlins plans for the deadline.

Got it? Now let’s get bold.

Here are three bold predictions for the Miami Marlins between now and the 2021 MLB Trade Deadline.
