Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Astros at Marlins (8/3)

New, comments

Astros are in town and hopefully all bleary eyed after playing some Midnight baseball last night against the Braves.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.

The Astros are going to send Roy Oswalt to the hill.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Willis pitched well in his last couple of outings but doesn't have much to show for it.  He is starting to look like the Dontrelle of old, and hopefully he will continue to build on that.  Treanor should be catching tonight.

The Astros have only one really good starter and the Marlins get to see him tonight, lucky us.  Oswalt has allowed only 1 ER in his last 13 innings.  However, when he is pitching on the road he changes from being next to unhittable to human.  His home ERA is 2.30 as compared to his road ERA of 5.36.

Ichthyomancy is ready to play ball.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
