Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Dodgers (8/15)

The Marlins are off to a bit of a rocky start in hopes of winning their third series in a row.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Anibal Sánchez.  The Dodgers have in mind Chad Billingsley.

Game time is 10:10 p.m.

Sánchez pitched well the last time he faced the Dodgers.  He gave up two earned runs and didn't walk a player wearing powder blue in six innings.  He has given up a long ball in each of his last three starts.  Hopefully that trend will end tonight.

Billingsley developed a blister on his hand in last start.  Being Marlins fans we know how that can affect a pitcher's performance.  In fact, Billingsley walked six batters in five innings in his last outing.  Assuming the Dodgers haven't continuously soaked the young pitcher's hand in pickle brine, it may still be problem tonight.  With any luck, the young Marlins hitters will find a way to be patient at the plate.

Ichthyomancy is up and ready for another installment of midnight baseball.  Don't forget to your picks in before the first pitch.
