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

Josh Beckett (who may be injured) faces John Patterson tonight as the Fish try to avoid splitting the series. Patterson is a really tough draw for the Fish. His 8-4 record isn't overwhelming, but his 2.44 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 3 K: 1 BB ratio is all pretty intimidating. Working in the Fish's favor is that they've seen Patterson three times so far this season. However, Patterson has pitched well each time (though the last his last appearance against the Fish was back in late July).

Cool Standings has the Marlins with a 22% chance to make the playoffs. They're second in likelihood to win the Wild Card. That's not a bad position to be in when you have four games next week with the "favored" team (the Astros).

It's once again time for ichthyomancy. If you've been playing all season, please make your picks today. If you've never played before - start today. It doesn't cost anything, it's fun, and it's free.
