Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Giants at Marlins (5/31)

Normally, I would write something along the lines of: Breakout the Brooms South Florida the Marlins are going for the Sweep.

But tonight is going to be a challenge for the young Marlins.

The starting pitcher for the Fish is Josh Johnson.  The Giants have on tap Jason Schmidt.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

If both pitchers bring their A-game this could be quite a duel.

To get to Schmidt it is best to make him work.  He begins to tire around 75 pitches.  Getting runners on is also a plus.

The Giants, likewise, should have trouble with the hard throwing Johnson if he is on.  Hopefully he will be.

Neither pitcher has a career loss at JRS.  It should be interesting and could turn into a battle of the bullpens. As soon as I say all of this, it will become a run scoring feast.

Ichthyomancy is up for action.  Be sure to get your picks in early.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
