Marlins offer “explanations” for a forgettable start

The current Major League season is still very young, but that does not prevent it from being classified as a true nightmare for the players. Miami Marlins; However, everything seems to indicate that the mistakes made last winter break require a separate chapter in the discussion.

The combine's new president of baseball operations, Peter Bendix, and owner Bruce Sherman are currently in the eye of the storm, after the former was hired a few months ago to improve a farm that was in decline. considerably in recent years.

In a recent conversation with reporter Craig Mish, Bendix admitted to being disappointed with the poor start that the fish have had, which entered this past Wednesday's day with a balance of 6-19, in the basement of the East division of the National League.

However, the executive added that he is confident that the club will improve, despite the fact that its offices made few movements during the most recent break between campaigns, something surprising for fans, taking into account that Miami lost to important pieces in that period, such as the Cuban Jorge Soler, who signed with the Giants, and the Dominican Sandy Alcántara, who needed Tommy John surgery.

After the culmination of the last tournament, the Marlins' top brass only made one acquisition considered impactful, acquiring the services of shortstop Tim Anderson. According to Bendix, he was looking for changes with other organizations to improve his depth and his chances of returning to the playoffs in 2024, but he did not find movements that caught his attention and that none of the offers he received were good enough for him. for the team to accept them.

The big question for many fans given the manager's lack of movements was whether Sherman had placed him under a strict financial limit; However, Bendix indicated that the owner has provided him with all the sources of support that he has requested and that both have made investments that will pay dividends in the future.

Disappointment in Miami:

In any case, the resounding failure that the team has had in these first weeks of the current championship has been a bucket of cold water for a South Florida fan who expected, at the very least, to be excited until the end with the possibility of surprising new to the baseball world with an appearance in October.

An illusion that now seems to be erased in the midst of so much frustration.
