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.

Notes: The run-suppressing conditions of Marlins Park didn’t do much to slow down this stacked Phillies offense in the series opener. Understandably, manager Gabe Kapler is sticking with the same exact batting order on Saturday.
- LF Curtis Granderson
- 3B Brian Anderson
- 1B Neil Walker
- 2B Starlin Castro

- RF Austin Dean

Notes: Frankly, there aren’t many positives about the major league club at the moment. Down on the farm, however, left-hander Will Stewart carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Friday night for High-A Jupiter. Stewart came to the organization along with Jorge Alfaro and Sixto Sánchez in the Realmuto trade. We are arranging an interview with him on the next episode of Earning Their Stripes!
