Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Cubs at Marlins (5/21)

The road trip is over!  Time to head down I-75 for home.

"Door's open. Bed's made.  Welcome home."

Tonight we play again and the Cubs are our guest.

The Marlins will send Ricky Nolasco to hill for his second start.  The Cubs have Sean Marshall in the chute.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

The team has faced Marshall before and frankly, didn't have any luck with him.  He pitched 7 innings and gave up 2 hits with no runs.  But that was then.  Marshall is very vulnerable in the early innings.  So hopefully the necessary adjustments will be made.

If you want to check the pulse of the Cub fans, there is no better place to that than Bleed Cubbie Blue.  And trust me, they ain't livin' la vida loco.  Then again, maybe they are.

Ichthyomancy is in full swing.  Remember to get your picks in early and if you haven't joined in - you really should.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
