    In 2015, MLB changed the rules that a drafted player could be traded after the World Series instead of waiting a full year after the draft. This cut down on a lot of PTBNL trades.

    Besides for Pena, it is more guys just playing like one of their best years instead of an increase and being a starter for the full season as most of those guys have played well enough to be either an All-Star or MVP already.

    The Marlins are next on the list of the Astros tour thru unlikely NL East opponents in the World Series.

    Marlins trying to get creative in the East. Don’t hate it but their defense could be a big risk with the shift changes
