The Offishial Show Episode 182: Marlins Offseason Shopping, Aisle 3

Ely, Louis and Kevin spotlight their favorite free agent and trade targets from Aisle 3.

Similar to last year, the Marlins enter the offseason facing a harsh reality: the talent within their organization is not nearly good enough to get them back to the postseason. They will be shopping for upgrades via trades and free agency in an attempt to fix that.

In this mini series, Ely Sussman, Louis Addeo-Weiss and Kevin Barral go in depth on players who the Fish should be targeting for their 2023 roster. The Aisle 3 episode features Ian Happ, Michael A. Taylor, José Abreu, Jeffrey Springs, Cedric Mullins, Alexis Díaz, Gio Urshela, Andrew Benintendi, Trea Turner, Willson Contreras and Yandy Díaz.

All players in Aisle 3 posted between 3.0 and 5.0 wins above replacement during the 2022 MLB season, according to Baseball-Reference.
