Welcome to Tuesday’s Marlins (55-76, -36 RD) vs. Mets (63-67, -28 RD) game thread. Let’s play two...sort of—these teams will be resuming their suspended game from April 11 in the afternoon, then playing as originally scheduled in the evening.
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 Sunday.
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.
Everybody’s point totals will soon be reset for the start of September.

Notes: During August home games, the Mets have a 5-1 record against the depleted Nationals and an 0-7 record against all other opponents...Both of these teams have had issues with offensive consistency, scoring two runs or fewer in 47 games, tied for the third-highest total in the majors...Watch out for old friend Villar. He’s slashing .311/.403/.503 at Citi Field this year, and overall, he’s 11-for-his-last-22 at the plate (.500 BA).
