Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Cardinals (8/29)

The Marlins will be going for nine in a row tonight.  The team record is nine in succession and it was last achieved by this year's team on June 10-20.  Photi is doing his part to keep the streak alive.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Scott Olsen.  The Red Birds will send Mark Mulder to the hill.

Game time is 8:10 p.m.

Olsen finally got his 10th win in his last outing.  Hopefully the pressure is off and he will just be the outstanding pitcher we know him to be.

Mulder is a lefty.  He will be making his second start since coming off the DL for a left shoulder injury.  His first start upon returning didn't go that well.  The Mets lit him up like a christmas tree.  Really, we don't know what to expect from him.

Ichthyomancy has traveled nicely and is ready for the fifth game of the 20 games in 20 days.  Don't forget to get your picks in on time.
