Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Cubs (4/25)

Yesterday's game was a bit unfortunate but a lot of good things happened.  Tonight, the Marlins send our best pitcher to the mound.

Dontrelle Willis is starting for the Fish.  The Cubs will send Sean Marshall to their bidding.

Game time is 8:05 p.m.

The Bad new is that the game time temperature is expected to be in the 40's and windy.

Dontrelle, being from the Bay area, may be more accustom to those conditions than his supporting teammates.

Sean Marshall is up from Double-A this year.  His ERA in the Bigs isn't that great at 6.28 but his WHIP is a very respectful 1.12.  He should be around the plate thus giving the Ump, who will be freezing to death, the excuse to call anything close a strike. Naturally that goes both ways.

If you like to read what the Cub faithful have on their minds, may I recommend the always excellent Bleed Cubbie Blue and The Cub Reporter.

Ichthyomancy is available for all who would like to play.  If you haven't joined in before, we would love to have you join the game.
