Joe Rose has some thoughts on Don Mattingly's mentality entering the 2020 MLB season.

The Marlins are set to open up the season on the road in Philly on July 24. With so many young pieces, can this team put together a special run in a 60-game season? 

Mattingly talks about a hot team having a shot, saying usually the best team is 162 games, but the hot team is going to have a chance with 60 games.

Joe thinks that's great and should be the attitude, but the Marlins are getting ready to play in the NL East. Outside of the Marlins, it was the best division in baseball last year.

On top of that, Tampa Bay, Boston, and New York from the AL East. Ouch.

The guys discuss and give their predictions for the Marlins in the upcoming 2020 season.

Today on the show we were joined by Kyle Crabbs and Brian Geltzeiler.  You can listen to the entire show podcast here
