Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Braves (5/17)

New, 25 comments

Tonight is a new night.  It brings a new beginning.

Ricky Nolasco will make his first start for the Marlins. "Give 'em the heater Ricky".  (I couldn't resist)  His mound opponent will be John Smoltz.

Game time is 7:35 p.m.

Matt Herges will not be with the club as he has received permission to return to South Florida to be with his wife and their new born.  His baby has been in an induced coma since his birth.

Herges said doctors are slowly bringing the baby out of the coma and are hopeful the pitcher and his wife, Jane, can hold the baby for the first time since the delivery.

''I don't want to miss that,'' Herges said.

Nor should he.  I hope everything goes as planned and I'm definitely wishing them the best.

Ichthyomancy is ready for action.  Be sure to get your picks in on time.
