Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Astros (9/12)

Game One on Planet Houston today (do you get that reference Wiggins? It's less obscure than Spinal Tap). Planet Houston is in a different time zone (naturally), so the game won't start until 8:05.

Dontrelle Willis versus Brandon Backe tonight. This is no gimmie. Look at the stats all you want and feel comfortable. But we're effectively in the playoffs now (each game counts) and Backe was pretty freaking great in the playoffs last year (3 games, 18.2 innings, 0.91 WHIP, and 2.89 ERA).

Later tonight the Giants and Padres square off and B.L. Bonds is allegedly going to be in the lineup. That's probably worth tuning in to watch.

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.

Here's today's ichthyomancy pick table:
