Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Cubs at Marlins (5/23)

Woo-Hoo!  We are coming off a win and a very solid one at that.  Tonight the Marlins will attempt to win two in a row for the third fourth time this year.

The Marlins starting pitcher is fightin' Scott Olsen.  Kerry Wood is the scheduled starter for the Cubs.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Wood will possibly be making his second start since shoulder surgery.  The reason I say possibly is that he wasn't able to go through his normal light bullpen session due to soreness yesterday.

Given how well Baker treats his young arms, I fully expect him to start.  Wood didn't have a good outing in his first appearance this season giving up 4 runs in 5 innings with 3 HR.  The one thing he did do that concerns me is he struck out 6.  Given our propensity to strikeout this may be a problem.
