Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Dodgers at Marlins (5/10)

The Marlins look to even the series today but unfortunately it is a day game.  Day games aren't what the team does best.  The Marlins are 16th in ERA and are 13th in BA in the NL so far this season during the day.  In case you didn't know, there are only 16 teams in the NL.

Naturally, baseball stats regresses to the mean, so this shouldn't continue since the Marlins were 5th in both categories last season.

The starting pitcher for the Marlins is Sergio Mitre.

The Dodgers will send out Derek Lowe to do their bidding.

Game time is 12:05 p.m.

Mitre looked good in his return from the DL last outing.  The defense didn't help out much, but surely they will put up a better effort today.

Lowe was excellent in his last start.  The good news is his ERA is more than doubles in day games, at least it has this season.  The bad news is he was 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA against the Marlins last season.

Ichthyomancy is somewhat ready to go.  It is a day game and an early one at that, so be sure to make your picks as early as possible.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
