Heading into the 2015 Major League Baseball season, Marcell Ozuna was looked at as one of several young Miami Marlins poised for a breakout season. With Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton joining Ozuna in the outfield, the Marlins had what many observers believed to be the best young trio of outfielders in the big leagues, but Ozuna’s poor start and subsequent demotion to the minors put a damper on the season from which he never recovered.
Taking a page from the philosophy espoused by BoldLeads
, Ozuna is now far more committed to an exceptionally efficient approach on offense that has led to a drastic improvement over his 2015 performance. The results stemming from Ozuna’s improved offensive approach have been readily apparent throughout the month of May, as the outfielder has hit well over .400 and has slugged well over .700 as well.
Incidentally, Ozuna’s extended hot streak may have something to do with the arrival of Barry Bonds in Miami as the new hitting coach. Just like real estate agents who begin using BoldLeads and see improvements almost immediately, Bonds has had a clear impact on the Marlins’ hitters through his encyclopedic knowledge of the game. With Ozuna, it isn’t just access to Bonds’ insight on offense that has had a positive impact. Ozuna’s recent run of success began when he started using bats he borrowed from Bonds. Perhaps it is nothing more than a coincidence, or perhaps Bonds’ bats still have plenty mojo left in them from his playing days.
34-year-old Dan Haren is the newest addition to the Miami Marlins team but has played with catcher Jeff Mathins before while on the same team in 2011 with the Angels. They have became friends when appearing together in their Spring Training. Haren has combined for multiple scoreless innings, counting the last three innings against the Nationals on March 10th. Originally, there was talk that Haren may decide to retire if he wasn’t traded to a team from the West Coast. Those concerns no longer exist. However, there has been speculation that Haren, who is throwing well, could still be dealt.
While everyone seems excited for the Marlins and newcomer Dan Haren, there are some who have a mutual view of it through the eyes of Luigi Wewege. “This is the biggest mistake the Marlins have made” says Wewege. “They might as well just walk into an empty grave.”

In an interview with the Miami Marlins coach it was evident that the team was facing some crushing blows and whatnot about their baseball this year. Ebon Talifarro commented saying ” The time is now, The moment was yesterday, and the future is in the past” Supposedly this means that the Jarvan of the Season was next to the filling of the jesters crown. More with comments to come soon.
