Miami is going to be an interesting team to watch to start the season. Last year they snuck into the playoffs but nobody thinks they can do it again. How they start wll be critical.
St Louis Cardinals
There is pressure on the Cardinals right now. The NL Central already looked their for the taking and then they acquired Nolan Arenado which ratcheted up the pressure even more. One positive from the first series is that he looked good, including his first homer as a Cardinal. He and Paul Goldschmidt both hit .385 in that one.
John Gant is making his first start since 2018. Over the past two seasons he has been very good in the bullpen but they traded some of their starting depth to get Arenado.
It is just a few games into the season but the Cardinals have not been sharp in the pen this season. No need to panic but something to watch.
The Marlins are always going to playing with very thin margins. They do have pitching but I worry about their ability to score runs consistently. Starling Marte is off to a good start hitting .500 heading into Monday night action.
Sandy Alcantara was really good in the opener but they did not score a run. That is the worry that there are going to be a lot of games like that one.
Thus far the starters have been better than the relievers. That might hold for the season but the Marlins need the relief corp to be better.

Free St Louis Cardinals vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
Gant might wind up being a good starter for the Cardinals this season but I am not looking to back him until we have seen it. On the flip side we know what Alcantara can do and he is showing no rust to start the season. Miami is the value side to me.
