Welcome to Saturday’s Marlins (14-18, +8 RD) vs. Brewers (21-12, +30 RD) game thread. The 25th anniversary celebration of the 1997 World Series title-winning team continues.

Our free Marlins prop bets contest has returned…with a few tweaks.

Use this Fish Picks link prior to every Marlins series to submit your predictions. I have divided the Marlins schedule into nine separate “innings” and will be awarding a BreakingT t-shirt to each inning’s points leader. The second inning runs from April 29 through May 18.


Brewers Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Luis Urías (165 wRC+ this season, career 99 wRC+)
  2. SS Willy Adames (122, 112)
  3. DH Christian Yelich (136, 132)
  4. RF Hunter Renfroe (110, 106)
  5. LF Tyrone Taylor (83, 105)
  6. 1B Rowdy Tellez (132, 104)
  7. CF Lorenzo Cain (43, 105)
  8. 3B Mike Brosseau (157, 110)
  9. C Victor Caratini (112, 83)

LHP Eric Lauer

Notes: Lauer has pitched just as well as Corbin Burnes so far this season. His strikeout rate has exploded with the aid of extra fastball velocity…Adames owns a meager .164/.220/.273 slash line in 17 career games against the Marlins. Weird…Josh Hader is in the midst of an immense scoreless streak that dates back to July 2021.

Marlins Game Notes

Marlins Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (154 wRC+ this season, career 104 wRC+)
  2. DH Jesús Aguilar (117, 113)
  3. LF Jorge Soler (81, 110)
  4. 1B Garrett Cooper (124, 119)
  5. RF Avisaíl García (55, 102)
  6. CF Jesús Sánchez (85, 98)
  7. 3B Brian Anderson (133, 112)
  8. SS Miguel Rojas (46, 86)
  9. C Jacob Stallings (59, 87)

LHP Trevor Rogers

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Sánchez moves up from 7 to 6, Anderson moves down from 6 to 7; Aguilar and Cooper swap 1B/DH

Pregame Transactions: RHP Josh Roberson traded to Rays

Additional Notes: It’s only the second time this season that Chisholm has occupied the leadoff spot against an opposing lefty. He also did it last Saturday when facing Sean Manaea in San Diego (the Marlins won, 8-0)…Aguilar has been dramatically more productive with the bat at home this season (188 wRC+) compared to on the road (61 wRC+)…If you are attending the game and find yourself with an extra replica World Series ring, consider negotiating a deal with Sean Millerick.

The first three 2022 Miami football games have been announced. Miami will open the season by hosting Bethune-Cookman at 3:30 p.m on the ACC Network. In week two Miami will host Southern Mississippi at noon on the ACC Network. Miami will play its first road game at Texas A&M in week three at 9 PM on ESPN.

The Hurricanes game at the Aggies kickoff time could be pushed back that night. Mississippi State plays at LSU at a 6 PM on ESPN prior to Miami and Texas A&M. Miami returns home to conclude non-conference play against Middle Tennessee State on September 24. The MTSU kickoff will be announced later.

Miami leads the all-time series with Texas A&M 2-1. The Hurricanes won the most recent games in 2007 and 2008. Miami will be playing Middle Tennessee State and Southern Mississippi for the first time. The last time Bethune-Cookman and Miami played was in 2019 in a game that was the first win for Manny Diaz.

The entire 2022 Miami football schedule will be played on Saturdays. Miami is at Clemson on November 19. That is the game most likely on the remainder of the Miami football schedule to be played in primetime. Miami opens ACC play against North Carolina on October 8 following a bye week.

The remainder of the 2022 Miami football schedule is October 15 at Virginia Tech, October 22 versus Duke, October 29 at Virginia, November 5 against Florida State November 12 at Georgia Tech and November 26 against Pittsburgh. Miami has an entirely new non-conference schedule in 2022 from their 2021 opponents.

This could be the last season the ACC plays with divisions. The NCAA ruled earlier this month that divisions are not required to play conference championship games. Miami was second in the ACC Coastal Division in 2021 with a 7-5 record overall and 5-3 in the ACC. Miami gave ACC Champion Pittsburgh its only 2021 loss.

The Hurricanes will be seeking to avenge losses to Florida State, North Carolina and Virginia. With all three games at Hard Rock Stadium, Miami should be favored versus FSU, UNC and UVA in 2022. In the inaugural season with Mario Cristobal as the head coach, Miami should receive a lot of attention nationally.

WWE’s Gable Steveson reportedly wants to return to Minnesota Gophers amateur wrestling

wwe’s-gable-steveson-reportedly-wants-to-return-to-minnesota-gophers-amateur-wrestling

Gable Steveson might not be done with amateur wrestling.

According to TwinCities Pioneer Press, although Steveson said that last season would be the end of his amateur wrestling days, he has one year of NCAA eligibility remaining and he is looking into possibly coming back for the Gophers’ 2022-23 season.

Gophers wrestling coach Brandon Eggum said, “I know he would like to wrestle, and he loves competing.” He added, “It would have to be something he works out with the WWE and Vince McMahon.”

Eggum said that the details have to be ironed out. No word yet on how this will play out with WWE. Steveson is under a multi-year WWE contract and the company has high hopes for him to become a star somewhere on the level of Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar.

He got a big introduction last year at SummerSlam and was introduced by Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania in Dallas. There was talk that he would start on the Raw roster after Mania but he has yet to get into the mix.

CM Punk mocks WWE’s decision to move Money In The Bank PPV to a smaller building

cm-punk-mocks-wwe’s-decision-to-move-money-in-the-bank-ppv-to-a-smaller-building

As was noted earlier, WWE has moved the Money In The Bank show from Allegiant Stadium to the much smaller MGM Grand Arena, thus canceling out hopes to turn Money In The Bank into one of the “big 5” shows as far as ticket sales.

CM Punk took to Twitter to mock WWE’s decision by including a photo of Sgt. Slaughter and Hulk Hogan from WrestleMania VII advertising. Punk is referring to WWE moving Mania VII from the LA Coliseum to the smaller Los Angeles Sports Arena. Ticket sales were nowhere near close to selling out and it was reported at the time in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE was claiming that they moved to a different building because of bomb threats due to the heated angle between Slaughter and Hogan. The Observer noted that the ticket sales were actually to blame. Low ticket sales are likely to blame in this case as well.

The latest update on Money In The Bank ticket sales (via WrestleTix’s Patreon) is that WWE had Allegiant Stadium set up for 27,114 tickets. As of May 20, they had sold just 19,594 tickets. Allegiant Stadium can hold around 65,000 fans for NFL games and likely more than that for a wrestling event.
