Rockies: For the first time in franchise history, the Rockies made the postseason in back-to-back seasons in 2017 and 2018. They’re looking to make it three straight postseason trips in 2019 after locking up franchise player Nolan Arenado to a mammoth eight-year, $260 million contract extension. Stalwarts Carlos Gonzalez, DJ LeMahieu, and Adam Ottavino were allowed to leave as free agents while Daniel Murphy was brought in to add some left-handed punch to the lineup. The Rockies have the most talented rotation in franchise history right now, led by Opening Day starter Kyle Freeland and strikeout machine German Marquez.
Marlins: Year two of the Derek Jeter/Bruce Sherman era begins a few weeks after J.T. Realmuto was traded to the NL East rival Phillies for a three-player package. The new ownership group has stripped down payroll — Wei-Yin Chen, Martin Prado, and Starlin Castro are the only players on the roster making more than $3.2 million in 2019 — but at least they’re going all-in on young starting pitching, so that’s fun. Still, expect another long, losing season in Miami. It’ll be a few years until this ship gets turned around. The good news? Their new caps are .
I’m a big Freeland fan and, let’s face it, the Marlins are really lacking offensive thump. Freeland dominates, Arenado and Murphy go deep, game over.
Pick: Rockies -150
