Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Phillies (7/29)

Sporting the best record in the NL since May 22 (37-22), the Marlins are looking to win two-in-a-row from the Phillies.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.  The Phillies are planning to trot out Cole Hamels.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Dontrelle has been no-decision in his last three starts.  With any luck at all, the hitters will see fit to throw some run support his way.

Hamels is a lefty.  He is a strikeout pitcher but is prone to the long ball.  In his last start: the Braves lit him up like a Christmas tree, but that really doesn't mean much.  It was during the time the Braves lit everyone up like a Christmas tree.

Ichthyomancy is ready as always.  It is mercifully an evening game but don't forget to get your picks in on time.
