Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Phillies at Marlins (8/31)

New, comments

The Marlins welcome the red hot Phillies to JRS.  Philadelphia, presently, has a five game winning streak.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Sergio Mitre.

The Phillies plan to counter with Kyle Kendrick.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

It's anyone's guess what to expect from Mitre tonight.  Personally I feel he has a "tired" arm.  If he can get his arm going so that he can rotate his shoulder to get his sinker to sink, he will do fine.  If not, it's bullpen time.

Kendrick is a soft tossing righty rookie pitcher.  Like most soft tossing pitchers he counts on movement to get the job done.  The good news is he has more trouble on the road than at home.  His home ERA is 3.26 as opposed to his road ERA of 5.10.

Ichthyomancy is ready to play spoiler to the Phillies.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
