Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Astros (4/16)

The Marlins leave the frigid confines of Turner Field and will be in Houston today to open up a two game series against the Astros.

I guarantee that playing conditions will be warmer and dryer than yesterday.  The Astros have the ability to slide a roof over their stadium, and the Astros fan hate being cold.

The starting pitcher for the Marlins is Anibal Sanchez.

The Astros have Wandy Rodriguez at the ready.

Game time is 8:05 p.m.

Anibal has never pitched in Minute Maid but in his one start against the Astros last season, he pitched a gem.

Rodriguez had his troubles with the Marlins last season giving up 5 runs in 5 1/3 innings.  Hopefully nothing has changed.

Ichthyomancy is all set and ready to go.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
