There is really no news to mention about the Marlins today. So therefore we are going straight to the playoffs. The NL is off today but the AL will be trying to catch up in the number of games played.
Tonight's games feature:
Game One: New York (Pettitte) at Cleveland Indians (Carmona), 5:07 p.m
Game Two: LA Angels (Escobar) at Boston (Matsuzaka), 8:37 p.m.
The normal conditions apply, you will be choosing the winner of both contests and a Player of the Game and an AAB pick for the LAA vs BOS game.
Given that we are probably not going to get much in the way of Marlins news during the playoffs coupled with my inherit laziness, I might start blogging the playoffs. But then again, maybe not. I will say this though, I do love playoff baseball, so who knows. If something happens with our favorite team, it will of course be covered here.
If you are interested in the nuances of the various ballparks of the playoff teams, the USA Today put out a feature on them. Is it the best article ever written? No. Can you learn some stuff you didn't know? Maybe.
But enough of that.
Here is today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
|Brickell||BOS||Guerrero||Game: 17+ R|
|Bumppo||NYY||BOS||Ortiz||Sox OF: 2+ H, 2+ R, 2+ RBI|
