Submit your 2020 Marlins predictions

Nobody knows what will happen during this unprecedented season...except for you? Doesn’t hurt to guess!

The buzz was promising on Monday and now it’s official: Major League Baseball will attempt to complete a 60-game regular season in 2020. It will be unlike anything the Marlins have ever experienced. Are you up for the challenge of predicting it?

  • Players report by Jul. 1 for Spring Training/Summer Training; Jul. 23 or Jul. 24 Opening Day; Sept. 27 regular season finale
  • Ten games apiece—40 total—against the Braves, Mets, Nationals and Phillies; 20 games combined against the Blue Jays, Orioles, Red Sox, Rays and Yankees (arguably the most difficult schedule in the majors)
  • Universal designated hitter
  • All extra innings begin with a runner on second base
  • Up to 60 players at spring training camps; 30-man Opening Day active roster, which reduces to 28 spots after two weeks and 26 spots after four weeks (no September roster expansion)
  • Aug. 31 trade deadline
  • Sixteen-team postseason field (eight each from AL/NL—three division winners, three second-place finishers and the two next-best teams)
  • No fans in attendance for the foreseeable future

I came across this outrageous tweet from @facksy11. Never mind his content: I just liked the format.

So let’s adopt it for ourselves.

Comment below or tweet to @fishstripes with your 2020 predictions for the Marlins’ win-loss record, breakout player, most valuable player and biggest disappointment.

Valid responses will be added directly into this article. Bookmark the page and we’ll revisit it after the season (hopefully, with 60 games completed safely). Whoever is most accurate wins bragging rights and a special Fish Stripes prize.
