Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Brewers (8/25)

Between the day game and the bad weather in South Florida, I'm putting the open thread up early. Today's game starts at 2:05. I apologize for not pointing this out earlier.

Apparently, Brian Moehler has been bumped to the bullpen. Ismael Valdez gets the start today. He'll be opposed by Doug Davis.

There are no updates on Milkgate, although I did hear cries on the radio this morning (from Joe Rose) for David Samson to step in and "do the right thing" (i.e. reinstate the young batboy). Apparently there is no truth to the rumor that the boy failed a steroid test (allegedly from the cow, who's milk the boy drank, being on a combination of BGH [bovine growth hormone] and something a little stronger than that).

Here's today's ichthyomancy pick table:

Person Player Attendance AAB
Carolina Valdez 26,000 Cabrera: Cycle
Colombo259 Cabrera 25,443 Cabrera: 4+ RBI
Dex Lowell 28,281 See comments, it's creative
