Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Dodgers at Marlins (8/5)

The Marlins, recently, haven't been real good at stopping other team's streaks and the Dodgers extended theirs by winning their seventh game in a row.  Hopefully that end tonight.

The starting pitcher for the Marlins is Josh Johnson.  The Dodgers have on tap Chad Billingsley.

Game time is 6:05 p.m.

Johnson is looking to be the first Marlins pitcher, this season, to win 10 games.

Billingsley is mainly a fast ball, curve ball pitcher but he does have a slider.  His biggest flaw is that he walks a lot of batters.  If the boys can be patient they should be successful in getting the ball in play.

Aside: The Players Wives are holding their Back to School Drive today and tomorrow. The goal is to gather school supply donations in order to help the less fortunate kids in the community. So if you are going to either of the weekend games pick up some items to help out. Calculators, paper, pens, crayons, folders, etc. Any would be a good choice and as a bonus you get a voucher for two tickets to an upcoming Marlins game. But trust me, the feeling you will get from helping someone less fortunate than you will be the best reward.

Ichthyomancy is here for all.  It is recommended that you get your picks in on time.
