Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Braves at Marlins (8/29)

New, comments

Woo Hoo!  The Marlins have a shot of getting a series win at home.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.

The Braves have Buddy Carlyle on their mind.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Willis didn't pitch badly in his last start but the long ball continued to be a problem.  In fact, he has given up two home runs in each of his last three starts. If Dontrelle can keep the ball in the park, he should be fine.

Carlyle hasn't made it past the fifth inning in his last five starts.  Lefties are hitting him to the tune of a .343 BA.  Carlyle will be going on an extra day's rest.  The way the Marlins luck has been going lately, Carlyle will probably go eight and strikeout every lefty.

Ichthyomancy is ready for a series win.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
