The Marlins still have a pulse in the National League Wild Card race. They enter play on Monday only three games back in the loss column of the Cardinals and Giants and two behind the Phillies. Naturally, there are fans clamoring for them to add talent from outside the organization that addresses the team’s deficiencies. However, it’s difficult to get sellers to budge this far in advance of the trade deadline. That does not mean the Fish should sit on their hands and hope their flawed roster overachieves enough in the coming weeks to stay afloat.
It’s time to promote Max Meyer.
