Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Cubs (5/28)

The Marlins are off on a 11 game, 10 day road trip and it all starts today in Chicago.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Byung-Hyun Kim.

The Cubs will send Sean Marshall to the hill.

Game time is 2:20 p.m.

Kim needs to avoid the long ball in order to have decent outing.  He has historically not pitched very in day games.  In his one day game start this season, he only pitch three innings while giving up 5 ER.  Kim has yet to have a start go for more than 5.1 IP since joining the Marlins.

Marshall will be making his second start of the season.  In his first start, he was outstanding but the Cubs didn't provide run support.  Marshall in his career is a pretty bad day game pitcher.  He has made 8 day game starts and hasn't won any of them while posting a 6.80 ERA in the process.  Marshall is a lefty.

Ichthyomancy, the holiday edition, is somewhat ready for its second day game in a row.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
