The homestand continues tonight and the Padres join the party. Jason Vargas takes the hill for the Fish against the Pads' Brian Lawrence.
If you haven't checked it out already, make sure to go and vote in the Favorite Marlin contest. We're in the Final Four now, so there's just one Marlin left in each of the four eras. Tomorrow we'll move on to the Finals.
We'd also like to welcome folks from Gaslamp Ball over here to play Ichthyomancy with us. If you're new to the site, just pick a player that you think will star in tonight's game, estimate the attendance, and (if you want) make an "above and beyond pick" (something like "Sweeney hits two home runs"). We'll award points after the game and we'll even add up all of the FishStripes and Gaslamp points at the end of the series to see who won the web contest (assuming, of course, that enough Gaslamp Ballers play along).
Technically you're supposed to use the entrails of a fish to help you make these picks, but if you don't want to go there, I suppose you could just pick off the top of your head (I guarantee your results won't be as good though).
Here's today's ichthyomancy pick table:
|Colombo259||Vargas||20,000||Cabrera-Delgado: B2B HR|
