Dugout Digest – welcome to Marlins Day

The TOC season preview series has arrived. Like last year, each day will be dedicated to one team, and each week over the next six weeks will be dedicated to one division. We've changed our topics up a bit this year, and will have four posts dedicated to each team on their day: a comprehensive season preview, a look at the two biggest weaknesses for each club, three key questions for the respective teams, and the "four horsemen", which will be a breakdown of four players that the team's success or failure will hinge on in 2014.

Today, we're starting with the Miami Marlins, who predictably had a disastrous year in 2013 after trading Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Heath Bell, and Josh Johnson in a much-reviled offseason purge. But maybe, just maybe, things will be different in 2014.

Welcome to Marlins Day, everyone, and enjoy the rest of your brief offseason.
