Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Phillies at Marlins (4/6)

Tonight is the home opener for the Marlins!  The Phillies are in town for a three-game set and they have yet to hit on all eight cylinders (or should that be nine).  Yes, I know, that a nine engine cylinder doesn't make any sense in the real world.  But we are talking baseball here.  Making sense is not a prerequisite.

The starting pitcher for the Marlins is Sergio Mitre.

The Phillies will send Jamie Moyer to the hill.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Mitre is coming off a strong spring and it will be interesting to see how he handles to potent Phillies lineup.

Moyer is a soft thrower at this point in his career.  So the Fish should see junk and more junk.  If the young Marlins can resist the urge to get overly aggressive at the soft tossing Moyer, and go with the pitch, they should be fine.

Ichthyomancy is more than ready after the day off.  It is a night game so everyone should be able to make their picks on time.  I will get the Ichthyomancy standings table up some time this weekend.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
