The Season Finale.
I would love to beat the Phillies in our last game of the year.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis. The Phillies have on tap Brett Myers.
At least, they are the scheduled pitchers for today's game at the time I am writing this.
Game time is 1:05 p.m.
Willis is the team's best day time pitcher this season. His ERA in the day is 2.42. In contrast to his night time ERA of 4.59.
Myers has been pitching well down the stretch, posting a 2.68 ERA in September.
Oh, there is something else to pay attention to during today's game:
The race is so close that if Cabrera goes 2 for 4 today and Sanchez goes 0 for 3, Cabrera would win by percentage points.
The Pirates game starts at 1:35 p.m.
Ichthyomancy is ready to declare a winner. Remember anyone can still win: if you are down by, say 50, there is a way to win it. All you have to do is pick over 50 events that will happen during the game and if they all come true - You win. No Problem.
Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
|Bobbob||15,473||Cabrera||SP: no runs in first 3 innings|
|Colombo||14,553||Willis||Marlins: W by 3+ R, 4+ more H|
|Dan||13,246||Ramirez||Marlins: 10+ R|
|Double B||17,869||Willis||Marlins blow lead in 9th|
|Dr F||14,041||Willis||Willis: IP ≥ 7, H < 6|
|Fishfan||11,100||Uggla||Willis IP ≥ 8 innings|
|Jscape||15,423||Ramirez||Marlins: IBB except Cabrera|
Best of Luck to Everyone!
