The Marlins finish up their road trip in Atlanta by playing 4 games in three days. Why is it that every time the team travels to Atlanta, Little Feat's song, Oh Atlanta, runs through my head? Not that it's a bad thing.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Wes Obermueller.
The Braves plain to go with Marlins killer, Tim Hudson.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Obermueller is being rushed up in order to give Mitre an extra day to try to get healthy. What this means is Wes will be pitching on three days rest, something he has never done in back to back starts. Obermueller pitch pretty will in last start going 7 IP while allowing 3 ER and most of them coming off Fielders 2 run home run. He hasn't faced the Braves since 2003 and has never pitched in Turner Field.
Hudson has never lost to the Marlins in his career, posting a 5-0 record with an ERA of 2.10 in 9 starts. I was trying to find a stat that looked promising for the Marlins and crap, I can't find one. The best I have to offer is this: get the bases loaded, he is real vulnerable when that happens. Also, strangely, he gets easier to hit when men are in scoring position with two outs as opposed to fewer than two. Don't ask me why.
Ichthyomancy is still traveling well and back to its usual routine. Since I have no idea what the Braves do that would be similar to the Sausages Race, if anything. But if they do, something they don't have is some
irresponsible drunk life loving connoisseur of barley beverages updating the official site with the results. So we are back to normal.
Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
|Bobbob||30,000||Cabrera||Marlins leadoff: OB 2+, 2+ R|
|Brooklyn||19,200||Uggla||Game: R < 5|
|C60||23,500||Ramirez||Marlins: back-to-back HR|
|Colombo||24,000||Cabrera||Marlins: W by 3|
|HadMatter||30,111||Uggla||One R game|
|Jim B||21,706||Amezaga||Game: HBP=1|
|Jrsyeagle||26,500||Ramirez||Hudson IP < 6.1, Marlins R > 2|
Best of Luck to Everyone!
