Welcome to Saturday’s Marlins (65-95, -81 RD) vs. Phillies (82-78, -8 RD) game thread.

During every Marlins game, join in on the Fish Picks prop bets fun. They give you something to focus on even with the team out of World Series contention. Please use this link!

Picks are only valid if submitted to us prior to first pitch.

The Fish Picks leaderboard is updated daily. Nobody picked a Perfect Game on Friday.

At the end of each month, the Fish Picks winner—whoever has the percentage of correct picks (among qualifiers)—will receive a hand-painted Trevor Rogers baseball card.

Jesús Luzardo - 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: Jackson, for the first time in his MLB career, has reached base safely four times in a span of five plate appearances. Baby steps!...The most well-rested pitchers available in the Marlins bullpen are Anthony Bass, Anthony Bender, Richard Bleier, Paul Campbell, Dylan Floro and Steven Okert.
