World Series Open Thread and Ichthyomancy (Game One)

Normally I would place the World Series banner at the top of this post, but I have been instructed we aren't allowed to do that.  So you will need to use your imagination if you want to see it.

It's the first game of what should be a pretty interesting World Series.

Colorado (Francis) at Boston (Beckett), 8:23 p.m. on FOX.

This should be a really good match up.  Both pitchers are undefeated in the post season and they were actually pitted against each other earlier in the season on June 14th with Francis getting the win.  In that game he went 5 innings and gave up 0 runs in Fenway.

However, as we all know, Beckett is a monster in the post season.

Besides your normal picks you will also be choosing the winner of the series complete with the number of games it will take them to achieve that feat.  This won't show up in the table but will be securely kept at FishStripes World Headquarters.

Here is today's Ichthyomancy pick table:

FishStriper COL@BOS Player AAB
Bumppo COL Francis Spilborghs: H, R, RBI > Ortiz
Colombo COL Tulowitzki Game: TR < 5
Dan BOS Ellsbury Lowell R > Beckett R
Fishcrazy BOS Beckett Youkilis: 2+ H
Hurricane BOS Ramirez Bullpens: 0 R
Jim B COL Holliday Rockies: 2 XBH
Stlcardinalfan BOS Beckett Beckett: 6+ IP, R < 3

Best of Luck to Everyone!
