The Marlins are finishing up their fourth season under the ownership group led by Owner Bruce Sherman and CEO Derek Jeter, who initially had the "goal of rebuilding the organization from the bottom up," but so far, the Marlins "still are not winning," according to Jordan McPherson of the MIAMI HERALD. The majority of Jeter's front office and key baseball decision makers "have ties to the Yankees organization he grew up in as a player," including first-year Marlins GM Kim Ng. The conversations nowadays are "shifting from putting together the organization Jeter envisioned to winning with that group in place." The Marlins went a combined 120-203 in Jeter's first two seasons, a pair of expected losing seasons after "just about every big-name player was traded away in return for prospects to build the foundation of the team's minor league system." After making the playoffs with a 31-29 record in the pandemic-shortened '20 season, the club has "one again regressed to the bottom of the National League East" in '21. Jeter said, "This year is disappointment up to this point. I think everyone in the clubhouse should be saying the same thing. If they're not, then something's wrong with them." Still, McPherson notes there have been "glimpses of what the club could have at its disposal next year." The Marlins "boasts a young-yet talented rotation" led by P Sandy Alcantara, NL Rookie of the Year contender Trevor Rogers and "top-100 prospects Edward Cabrera and Sixto Sanchez" (MIAMI HERALD, 9/8).
