Game preview, lineups, news and props for Marlins vs. Reds in Cincinnati.

MLB: Miami Marlins at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Thanks for joining us for Thursday’s Marlins (3-9) vs. Reds (3-8) game thread.

Throughout the 2019 season, Fish Stripes is your home for daily Fish Picks prop bets. I posted the full introduction toward the end of Spring Training. The monthly points leader for March/April, May, June, etc. wins Fish Stripes merchandise prizes. (Do you know of any South Florida businesses who might want to sponsor additional Fish Picks prizes? Details here.)

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


Marlins Lineup

  1. LF Curtis Granderson
  2. 3B Brian Anderson
  3. 1B Neil Walker
  4. 2B Starlin Castro
  5. SS Miguel Rojas
  6. CF Lewis Brinson
  7. RF Peter O’Brien
  8. C Chad Wallach

Notes: López didn’t receive much support in the “pick your ace” FanPulse question earlier this week, but perception can change pretty rapidly.
