Marlins Game Thread and Fish Picks vs. Cardinals—March 24, 2019

Game preview, lineups, news and props for Marlins vs. Cardinals at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium.

MLB: Spring Training-New York Mets at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Through the years, Fish Stripes has hosted a “game within the game” during the Marlins regular season. Gives us a distraction from low-quality baseball, presenting an opportunity to win even when the team gets blown out.

The concept will survive into 2019, but under a new name and format. Icthyomancy is out, “Fish Picks” is in.

I posted the full introduction in Friday’s game thread.

These spring game prop bets are just for fun. That changes next week—monthly points leaders for March/April, May, June, etc. win Fish Stripes merchandise prizes.

The Fish Picks leaderboard will update daily to let you know where you stand.

Notes: Congrats to Braxton Garrett on his Marlins Ping Pong Tournament championship. The young left-handed pitcher played right-handed and still took down Garrett Cooper in the title match, two games to one...Mike Kickham and Tyler Kinley are available in relief of Gallen, who’s making his first Grapefruit League appearance since March 7...Beyond that, Fresh Fish News with Christian Cevallos gets you caught up on everything happening around the team.
