Miami Marlins vs. Seattle Mariners: Game 17 Thread and Ichthyomancy

Brian Garfinkel

The Miami Marlins host the Seattle Mariners for a three-game set at Marlns Park. They'll look to support Nathan Eovaldi, who has been stellar throughtout the season thus far.

The Miami Marlins will look to bounce back from a tough series against the Washington Nationals as they face off against the Seattle Mariners in a three-game series at Marlins Park. The Fish will send out Nathan Eovaldi in the hopes of supporting him defensively versus veteran journeyman Chris Young.

Marlins fan, hop aboard the Nathan Eovaldi bandwagon before it fills up. Fish Stripers know my interest in Eovaldi began last season, and so far in three starts this year, he has looked dominant yet somehow still given up plenty of runs. A few well-timed hits or defensive miscues have ratcheted Eovaldi's ERA, but his FIP and peripherals look astonishing.

CHris Young is making his second start for the Mariners after their rotation was devastated by early-season injuries. Last time out, he gave them eight innings and no runs in a classic "fly balls to outfielders" special. Marlins Park suits that style just right.

Lineups

Today's Lineups

No Logan Morrison for this series, as he is out with an injury and will not be able to comically attempt to patrol left field. Corey Hart gets the start at first base over Justin Smoak.

Meanwhile, the Marlins have seemingly found their right-handed pitching lineup, as they have settled with this same setup again. Given the idea behind traditional lineup writing, this is probably the best Miami can offer. The team could optimize it a bit by batting Saltalamacchia second, though that is picking nits.

Notes

- I've been a bit under the weather the last two days, but I'll be here for tonight's game!

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Mariners 3-2
