Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Diamondbacks at Marlins (8/9)

I'm back - well, sort of. In case you hadn't noticed (maybe you didn't, as I'd pre-written some stuff), I was away for the past few days. Over the weekend I was in Cooperstown and yesterday I ran around New York City. Today I'm in Baltimore and I'll have more regular Internet access again. So far it's been a great trip and it's not even half over. Maybe Carolina's already filled everyone in on the details. Or maybe she hasn't. I'm still way behind on my reading. I'll update everyone on my travels late tonight or sometime tomorrow. In a few minutes I'm headed out to Camden Yards to see the Orioles and Rays (by the end of this week I may have witnessed more Rays games than Marlins games this year).

Burnett vs. Vazquez tonight. Should be a good matchup. Hopefully the Fish can turn it around after a disaster of a day in Colorado yesterday.

The Fish are back home (for a fairly lengthy homestand). Hopefully they've got something left after the twin bill yesterday. Granted, the Marlins fly on a private plane and I'm sure that helps make it a little easier, but that West - East flight is always rough on the body.

UPDATE: I apologize for falling behind on the Favorite Marlin contest. We'll be back up and running with round three starting tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.
