LDS Open Thread and Ichthyomancy (Day Four)

Today or probably more accurately, tonight, features the NL playoffs.  Which much to TBS's chagrin the outcome of both contests could end up with a sweep and end tonight.  The AL has a scheduled travel day.

Game One: Arizona (Hernández) at Chicago (Hill), 6:07 p.m.

Game Two: Philadelphia (Moyer) at Colorado (Jiménez), 9:37 p.m.

You read that right, Midnight baseball is in our future once again.  But unless something goes completely awry, Midnight baseball may be with us for most of the playoffs.  And that is something I can live with.

While I don't know how you feel about the TBS coverage so far, for me, it is infinitely better than having to suffer through what FOX did last season.  Your mileage may vary.

Now, on to the games where once again you will be picking a winner in both of the contests and a Player of the Game and an AAB pick for the Phillies vs. the Rockies only.

Here is today's Ichthyomancy pick table:

FishStriper ARZ@CHI PHI@COL Player AAB
C60 CHI COL Atkins Rockies: HR > 2
Colombo ARZ COL Hernandez Rockies: W by 1 R
Dan ARZ COL Helton Jimenez: 0 R
Fishcrazy CHI COL Holliday Moyer: IP < 5
Fluxuation ARZ PHI Rollins Phillies: 3+ HR
Hurricane CHI COL Matsui Games: run margin < 10
Jim B CHI COL Holliday Game: 3 HR
Mbaamin CHI PHI Howard Jiménez: IP < 5, R > 4
Stlcardinalfan ARZ COL Holliday Holliday: 2+ RBI

Best of Luck to Everyone!
