Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (57-81, -38 RD) vs. Mets (70-69, -8 RD) game thread. Congrats to CEO Derek Jeter on officially being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier today.
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 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.
Mets Starting Lineup
- 3B Jonathan Villar
- SS Francisco Lindor
- 1B Pete Alonso
- RF Michael Conforto
- 2B Javier Báez
- LF Jeff McNeil
- CF Kevin Pillar
- C James McCann
- LHP Rich Hill (2021 season stats: 3.92 ERA, 4.56 FIP, 21.7 K%, 35.1 HardHit% in 133.0 IP)
Notes: Hill has been surprisingly durable for a 41-year-old, especially by his own standards. Completing three innings tonight would make this the second-highest single-season innings total of his career (trailing only 2007).
Marlins Starting Lineup
- SS Miguel Rojas
- 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr.
- LF Jorge Alfaro
- RF Jesús Sánchez
- CF Bryan De La Cruz
- 1B Lewin Díaz
- C Alex Jackson
- 3B Isan Díaz
- RHP Sandy Alcantara (2021 season stats: 3.36 ERA, 3.56 FIP, 23.3 K%, 39.4 HardHit% in 171.2 IP)
Notes: Jesús Aguilar (left knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list to make room for Lewin...This will be Alcantara’s first start since turning 26 on Tuesday...Isan Díaz is hitless over the last two-plus weeks (0-for-29)...The most well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen are Anthony Bass, Anthony Bender, Richard Bleier, Dylan Floro and Steven Okert.
