Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Padres at Marlins (5/4)

The Marlins open a three game set tonight against the Padres and their starting pitching is stacked for the series.  But the Fish have the arms to counter.  Tonight's game features an excellent match up.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.

The Padres will send some guy by the name of Greg Maddux to the hill.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Dontrelle will be looking for his sixth win of the season.  His last outing against San Diego was a complete game shutout, but that was in 2005.  Strangely, Willis has been better on the road than at home, but things change.

Maddux had an excellent last start going seven and only allowing five hits.  The good news, he is only 1-3 in last four starts in JRS, something that hopefully will remain the same.

Ichthyomancy is a little bit different tonight, for you see, it's Bark at the Park Night.  Besides your normal picks you need to include your best guess for the number of dogs in attendance.  The doggie pick won't show up in the table but it will count.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
