Marlins Game Coverage

Fish Stripes Podcast Episode

My deepest condolences to the community of Uvalde, Texas, after Tuesday’s mass shooting which killed 19 children and two adults.

  • FanGraphs gives the Marlins a 39.7% chance to win their series finale against the Rays. That’s the third-lowest probability they’ve had for any game this season.
  • According to Advocates for Minor Leaguers, the Marlins are not paying their players for extended spring training work. Players are also being deprived of individual bedrooms in some cases. They are one of the few MLB organizations that’s failing in both of these areas.

  • We’ll be spending Thursday’s off day playing Marlins Jeopardy! Every episode features a full category of fan-submitted trivia. Here is the submission form.
  • Hector Rodriguez did his first 2022 mock draft of Marlins selections. This one covered the first three rounds.
  • Alex Aguirre of Lemon City Live spoke to Fish Stripes’ own Isaac Azout on the First Pitch 3:05 Podcast.
  • Man On Second Baseball’s Joe Frisaro visited Peter Pratt on Locked On Marlins (which is now available on YouTube).
  • Dan Szymborski of FanGraphs takes an updated look at the next half-decade of Pablo López’s projected performance.
  • Jazz Chisholm Jr. toured the MLB The Show studios.
  • A nationwide survey conducted by VegasInsider finds that LoanDepot Park has the best exterior appearance among MLB stadiums and ranks as the fourth “prettiest” overall.
