The Marlins are a team that’s free falling, and we’re going to see guys check out and other players get traded. The Marlins are finished. The Nationals on the other hand are starting to heat up, Soto has found himself since the home run derby and Washington now has reason to make a last second push for a possible playoff spot. Two teams heading in the wrong direction fast. Nats and the cheap price is a steal.
