The Miami Marlins have a chance to do something historic
The Miami Marlins have a chance to do something historic… what you ask? Well, how about having the most marketable player in the Major Leagues and using him correctly?! I wrote a little bit about it before, but this time let’s really dive into this subject!
The Miami Marlins can make history.
The Miami Marlins can become one of the most popular teams in the country. Even more than that, The Fish can become a bigger deal in Miami than the NBA’s Miami Heat. Do you remember the notorious “decision” by LeBron James? James made the Miami Heat far more popular than they ever were, helped them win multiple championships and was an even more marketable superstar.
On the flip side we have Los Angeles Angels CF Mike Trout. Trout is considered to be the best player in the Major Leagues, the equivalent to LeBron in basketball during his “decision”, but is nowhere near as popular.
Why is that so? The answer is that he just doesn’t want the attention, which is costing him and MLB millions of dollars. He has a right to want his privacy, but considering his unique talent, he could’ve been such a massive superstar if he just allowed himself to be marketed.
Trour cost himself even more money and fame by extending his contract with the unpopular Los Angeles Angels not once but twice! He would’ve easily made more money in free agency and ended up on a team that actually makes the playoffs. Trout is yet to win a playoff game in his DECADE with the team.
The Miami Marlins can take Jazz Chisholm Jr. and not only extend him, but promote him as much as possible around Miami. Chisholm is very marketable and is someone that can make the game even more popular as well.
Another option for the Miami Marlins is to make a big splash and sign Juan Soto to a record-setting deal and then market him as much as possible as the face of MLB. Soto like Trout can lay claim to the title of being the best hitter in the game. If you don’t believe that it’s possible read this right now.
The Miami Marlins have a chance to make history. The question is whether The Fish are ready to take full advantage of the tech capital of the country that is Miami.
