Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Phillies (5/1)

TIME: 1:35 @ Citizen's Bank Park

Thankfully there's no rain in the forecast for today. I think we're all sick of the rain delays.

One month is in the books and the Fish are in first. They can start out the month of May by sweeping the Phillies with a win today.

For picks today, I'm taking Mike Lowell.  He has to break out at some point.  Carolina pre-picked not only Miguel Cabrera, but that he would hit a home run that she will catch. If that comes true... well, I don't know what I'll think, other than that our game won't be any fun because she clearly can see the future better than the rest of us. Craig has Conine or Encarnacion (or whoever is in rightfield).

Today's game should prove to be an interesting one. Last night's game was called only 13 hours before today's starts. While they didn't play a full game yesterday, the guys were at the ballpark for a long time.
