The episode starts off with the guys sharing their thoughts on the Marlins’ lone trade at the deadline with the Toronto Blue Jays. This leads to talking about the prospect they got in return, Jordan Groshans, and how he would fit into Miami’s 2023 plans.
Miami is clearly out of the playoff race and their focus turns to their prospects that have been called up recently. The guys talk about the new kids on the block like Charles Leblanc, Peyton Burdick, and JJ Bleday. Were they called up too late? Could they have helped Miami make a playoff push when they were in striking distance?
The episode is closed out with the guys talking about the upcoming Marlins series against the new-look San Diego Padres. The Padres highlighted the trade deadline when they acquired Juan Soto in a blockbuster deal. How did that trade affect the playoff landscape? Does the trade make San Diego World Series favorites? One thing is for sure, the Marlins are going to have their hands full when Machado, Soto and Tatis Jr. roll into town.
