Despite fearing the worst last week, Red Garcia and Alex Contreras are happy to share that Marlins baseball returns Tuesday night in Baltimore! This episode includes conversation about Major League Baseball’s handling of the Marlins’ COVID-19 outbreak (1:00), the drama surrounding the opt out of Mets outfielder Yoenis Céspedes (7:00), the many new faces on the Marlins roster (10:30) and comparing lineups of the all-time best fictional movie baseball players (41:10).

Check out Episode 8!

Weather permitting, the Marlins and Orioles will play four games against one another beginning Tuesday night. The Fish will be considered the home team for the final two games of the series.

Major League Baseball has concluded its investigation into the outbreak and the Marlins have done their own investigation, too. More details to come in a separate Fish Stripes article after Derek Jeter, Michael Hill and Don Mattingly address the media.
