Alex Contreras and Ely Sussman are joined by Marlins in-game host Mike Biana (who also served as interim public address announcer at Marlins Park in 2020). Mike shares stories from his shortened season in Little Havana, how his job responsibilities changed without fans and why he likes the Fish’s chances of upsetting the Cubs in the Wild Card Series this week.

This was the first thing I thought about as I woke up this morning...— Mike B! (@mikebiana) September 26, 2020
Nobody pinch me. I KNOW this is real! We’re going to the PLAYOFFS! #JuntosMiami https://t.co/oXL1acFRdi
The Marlins were limited to 26 home games in 2020 due to COVID-19 related postponements, and they won’t get any postseason action in their own ballpark. The best-of-three Wild Card Series against the Cubs—which begins Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET—will be played entirely at Wrigley Field. If the Fish advance past them, they would relocate to a “bubble” environment in Texas for the NLDS and beyond.
Mike B. hosted the Marlins’ new BP Live show powered by PrizePicks, which was streamed on the official team website and Facebook page. You can rewatch all five episodes (Aug. 14, Aug. 18, Aug. 28, Sept. 1 and Sept. 15) here.
