- In real life, the Marlins (inexplicably) won the 2019 season series over the Phils, 10-9. However, they were outscored in those games, 105-95.
- Hoskins annihilated Marlins pitching as a rookie, coming back down to Earth in recent years. His career slash line against the team is .272/.420/.604 with 14 home runs in 48 games. Rojas, meanwhile, is more or less the same offensive player against the Phillies as he is under normal circumstances.
- I have zero insight into either guy’s MLB The Show abilities, but expect plenty of trash talk.
