Marlins Barbecue Episode 29: Fish Addiction

Alex attended five straight Marlins games and lives to tell us all about it.


Alex Contreras takes a break from his busy schedule to join Ely Sussman for an hour-plus discussion about what we’ve seen from the Marlins through the first 20% of the regular season. Alex tells fans what to expect when they attend games at LoanDepot Park, then dives into Lewis Brinson’s hot streak, key players nearing returns from the injured list, Jordan Holloway’s upcoming first career start, the brilliance of the Sandy/Pablo/Trevor triumvirate and much more.

Enjoy Episode 29!
