Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Braves (9/16)

New, 4 comments

The Marlins have the chance to clinch the series tonight.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Anibal Sanchez.  The Braves will counter with John Smoltz.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Sanchez has won his last 5 decisions.  The young man is on a roll.  His away ERA is 3.51, which about a run higher than his home ERA.

Smoltz has lost three in a row.  In two of the three it resembled batting practice, giving up 13 runs in 7 innings.

I generally don't like it when streaks collide, they have a tendency to flip.  Hopefully that won't happen tonight.

Ichthyomancy be liking the weekend night game.  There is no big hurry but don't forget to make your picks. Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
