Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Rockies at Marlins (4/30)

Today we bid adieu to the Rockies for about a month.  Unfortunately the team finds itself in the all to familiar position of trying to avoid a sweep.

The Marlins have on tap pinch-hitting sensation Sergio Mitre.  The Rockies will be sending Byung-Hyun Kim to the mound.

Kim is fresh off the DL so who knows what to expect.

Game time is 1:05 p.m.

The giveaway today is:

Miguel Cabrera Youth Silver Slugger Bat presented by Commercebank for the first 5,000 kids age 12 and under (out-bound giveaway).

If on the off chance you can't Rent-A-Kid, you will need to make friends with one in the stadium.  Buy them one of those $47 hot dogs to convince them to give you the bat.  Just a suggestion, you may have a better idea.

Rox Girl kicked me to the curb. So whoever had the second game in the pool, you are the winner.

We still up against the Rockies - so if want to know what is on the minds of their fans - the only place to go is Purple Row.

Speaking of playing the Rockies, isn't it better playing the team from Colorado in Miami during April instead of Denver. The games don't get snowed out like last year and thus avoiding those nasty double headers on off days during the middle of the season.

Ichthyomancy is good to go.  Get your picks in early because it is most definitely a day game.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:

FishStriper Attendance Player AAB
Bobbob 11,500 Cabrera Marlins: Bat K< Pitch K
Colombo 12,105 Willingham Willingham: half-plus Fish RBI
Double B 17,689 Mitre Marlins P walk 10
Dr F 10,499 Cabrera Mitre BB>Marlins BB
Fishfan Cabrera Bench clearing brawl
Jscape 23,765 Ramirez Marlins: IBB except Cabrera

Best of Luck to Everyone!
