MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Sunday’s Marlins (2-6, -8 RD) vs. Mets (2-3, 0 RD) game thread. Keep in mind Citi Field is forecasted to receive rain throughout most of the afternoon and evening.

Fish Picks has indeed returned for a third season! Whether you enter picks here on or at the @fishstripes Twitter account, it’s always free to participate and the prizes are real.

Fans can find the props within game threads like this one or as the pinned tweet on our Twitter account. They will be posted at least four hours prior to the game’s scheduled first pitch (assuming both the Marlins and their opponent declare a probable starting pitcher by then). Generally, there will be five props per game, four about individual/team stats and the final one always being the moneyline pick (which team will win). Picks are only valid if commented or tweeted to us prior to first pitch.

Your goal every day is to “pick a perfect game” and choose the correct outcome for each prop. Whoever has the most perfect games each month receives a t-shirt of their choice from our partners at Legends of Dade!

The Fish Picks leaderboard will be updated daily.
