Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Nationals at Marlins (4/14)

The home stand continues as the Nats come to town.

The Marlins will send Dontrelle Willis to the mound looking for his first win of the season. Come on run support!  Washington has Ryan Drese as their scheduled starter.

Game time is at......hold it, something must be wrong.  I just checked several sources and they all agree that the game starts at 7:35 p.m.

We have a night game people!  

I hope that they didn't confuse a.m. with p.m.

Assuming they didn't, FishStripes may finally find its voice in the open thread.  Friday night isn't always the best - but I will take it.  I finally get to trot out MLB.TV and she what see can do for this season.  If it is anything like the previous seasons, cussing will be involved.  But maybe this is the year they get it right.

Throwing out the first pitch tonight:

Hall-of-Fame boxer and five-time world champion Roberto Duran will throw out the game's ceremonial first pitch tonight when the Florida Marlins host the Washington Nationals at historic Dolphin Stadium. ?This is unreal. I hope to throw a strike,? said Duran.

Roberto, I hope you do too but since your nickname is "Hands of Stone" I wouldn't get your hopes too high.

Ichthyomancy is on.  If you haven't joined us already, today would be a fine day to start.
