Miami Marlins News:

ESPN's latest "Ultimate Standings" have the Marlins organization trending upward in many different aspects. A list that analyzes everything from coaching to ballpark experience, the article praises the influence of Don Mattingly on the Marlins team.

Several Marlins Players are nominated for the "2016 MLB Awards." You can vote for them here, Giancarlo Stanton, Ichiro Suzuki and Jose Fernandez are among those nominated.

The Marlins have been said to be willing to part with a core player in order to acquire starting pitching. Marlins infielder Adeiny Hechevarria's name has been thrown out there as possible bait.

Around the League:

The 2017 MLB free agent class may be one of the worst we have ever seen. As a result, many expect the trade market to be as busy as ever this winter.

The Cubs and the Indians will face off in a battle of two World Series deprived teams. As many would expect, the Cubs are the favorite going in but by a much narrower margin than some would expect.

As the World Series begins this week, 28 teams are forced to look forward to 2017. The hot stove already appears to be heating up as rumors begin to swirl.
