Major League Baseball (MLB) is looking forward to a fast-paced game with more action on the base, more balls in play, and more athleticism from the players. These improvements are set to make the matches more exciting for Betway punters and MLB fans in general, but things might be different for various franchises. Fortunately for the Miami Marlins, Jazz Chisholm Jr. has a feeling about how everything will play out.
Pitch clocks, more action on the bases, infield shift elimination, restrictions on pickoff throws? Finally, a triumph for these little guys.
Recently, the Marlins’ lively center fielder, Jazz Chisholm revealed that many pitchers are highly likely to make many mistakes this year since they are falling behind in counts. Chisholm also believes that a lack of focus will get into many players’ heads. The lively center fielder also went ahead to describe his vision, which includes slap-and-dash hits from Jean Segura and Luiz Arraez, stolen bases from Jon Berti and himself, and home runs from Jorge Soler.
Chisolm further added that he feels like the Marlins will wreak havoc in every way they can. But can baseball’s new set of rules prop up its perennial run? This year will be the 20th anniversary of the last time the Marlins won the championship. Since then, the Marlins only managed to reach the postseason during the 2020s shortened season. Two of the Marlins' National League rivals (The Mets and Atlanta) managed to win 101 games in the previous season and Philadelphia went to the World Series.
Despite failing in the previous seasons, the Marlins GM Kim Ng did a very unusual thing when making a veteran trade this winter. The franchise that did away with Mike Piazza, Gary Sheffield, Miguel Cabrera, Giancarlo Stanton, and Josh Beckett made a deal hoping to get a win-now payoff, similar to what fans expect when they make a sports bet at the Betway casino.
After finishing last season at 69-93 with the least batting average in the team’s history, the Marlins acquired Arraez, an American League batting champion from the Minnesota Twins. The Marlins traded their dependable right-hand starter, Pablo Lopez, for Arraez and signed 15-year-old veteran Johnny Cueto.
With the changes they’ve already made, the Marlins feel they’re ready to win. According to their infield-outfielder Jon Berti, the Marlins are ready to make their next step moving forward. The team will miss Pablo as a teammate, but they’ve recently managed to add some depth to their lineup with the batting champion.
Last season, Arraez hit .316 to hold off Aaron Judge from getting the A.L triple crown and will be playing second base to bump Chisholm in the center field. On the other hand, Chisholm was voted to begin the All-Star Game last summer, although a back injury ended his season early. Nonetheless, Chisholm has welcomed the change with open arms, working together with former center fields Jon Jay and Juan Pierre. He will also be talking with luminaries like Sheffield and Ken Griffey.
The Marlins general manager Kim Ng believes the franchise owes it to their fans to give them a game they’ll enjoy and tangible results. The general manager believes his men won’t have the excellent building blocks that they currently have and throw in the white flag before the first day. It simply doesn’t make any sense, so the club must work hard to yield results no matter how difficult their division gets.
