The First Pitch 3:05 Podcast | Episode 5 | Andrés Bolívar

First Pitch 305

Welcome to the First Pitch 3:05 Podcast! Glad you all can join and listen to all the baseball talk with Alex Aguirre, Miami Marlins contributor for Lemon City Live.

In this week’s episode of First Pitch 3:05, Alex welcomes Andres Bolivar to the show. Andres is a sports writer for “Con Las Bases Llenas” and his beat is to cover the Tampa Bay Rays and the Miami Marlins.

This week’s show starts with the guys talking about Sandy Alcantara’s gutsy complete-game performance over the Cardinals. They break down his season so far and they make the case as to why Sandy is currently the best pitcher in baseball and why he deserves to start for the National League at the All-Star Game.
Later in the show, Andres and Alex talk about the Marlins’ news that happened off the field with Gary Denbo being dismissed by the franchise. Denbo was Miami’s VP of player development and scouting and was selected by Derek Jeter to come over from the Yankees in 2017. The guys talk about his tenure, the moves he made with the club, and the overall impact he had on Miami’s farm system.
The show is rounded off with what’s up ahead for the Miami Marlins. The injury bug is still plaguing Miami but some key players are returning soon. There’s a month left until the trade deadline and Alex and Andres talk about why this is the most important month of the 2022 season before determining if Miami is going to be buyers or sellers at the deadline.
