Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Dodgers (8/14)

New, 30 comments

The Marlins, hopefully, will return the same kindest the Dodgers bestowed upon our favorite team the last time we faced them.

The Fish will see the exact same three starters from the Dodgers as earlier this month.  The Dodgers have continued to remain hot since leaving South Florida.  They are 15-1 in their last 16 games.

The starting pitcher for the Marlins is Dontrelle Willis.  The Dodgers plan to counter with Derek Lowe.

Game time is 10:10 p.m.

Lowe's sinker proved a bit of problem the last time the young Marlins faced him.  The good news is: the one lost during the hot streak was attributed to to Lowe.  But to be honest, it was the bullpen that let him down.

Willis has had some difficulties with his pitching mechanics of late which has led to some control issues.  With any luck that has been worked out in his throwing sessions.

Ichthyomancy is geared up for midnight baseball.  All that want to participate just need to remember to picks in before the first pitch.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
