Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (61-84, -43 RD) vs. Nationals (60-85, -77 RD) game thread. Happy Roberto Clemente Day.

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. Congrats to @vjmwilliams, who picked a Perfect Game on Tuesday.

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 have been reset for the start of September.
