Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Rockies at Marlins (8/2)

New, comments

The Marlins are going for the series win tonight.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Rick VandenHurk.

The Rockies plan to counter with Jason Hirsh.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

The young Mr. VandenHurk is a little hard to predict, as you know.  If he can keep the gopher ball in the bag and control the walks, he should be fine.  As you would expect, the Rockies have never faced him.

Hirsh is being activated from the DL and hasn't pitched in the Majors in about a month.  In case you are wondering what injury placed him on the DL, it was an ankle sprain.  Hirsh is a fastball-slider type of pitcher and he has been pretty tough on righties this season.  Like the many Rockies pitchers who have come before him, he has a better ERA on the road than at home.

Tonight we say goodbye to our Purple Row friends until September 14th, which at that time we will be crashing on their couch.  For that is the date that the Fish will be Colorado and with any luck, it won't be snowing.

Ichthyomancy is somewhat ready and could even be able.
