The Miami Marlins have to just keep swimming after last year’s disappointment of a season. With a record of 62-100, a payroll cut in half and new stadium that is more of a money pit then a money maker, the Marlins were in need of an overhaul. After trading the face of the franchise, Hanley Ramirez, as well as well-know faces like Jose Reyes, many Marlins’ fans were frustrated and angry.

This year, they’re hope for a turnaround might just become a reality.

How’s the outlook for the new season? So far, it’s very promising.

With young bloods like 21-year old NL Rookie of the Year Jose Fernandez on the mound, and 24-year-old Giancarlo Stanton at the plate, the Marlins have some hefty weaponry in their arsenal. Fernandez had 187 strike outs in 173 and 2/3 innings last year and a 2.19 ERA. Stanton was an All-Star in 2012 with 37 homeruns, a .290 batting average, and the longest home run in the MLB since 2009 at 494 feet. Last year, he was held back by a hamstring injury which means this year, he has to make up for lost time.

The Marlins are feeling more confident this year and are hoping for a revival after last year’s shellacking.
