Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Braves (9/17)

New, comments

Well, Hello, Atlanta.

The Marlins are in Atlanta to finish out their six game road trip with three against the Braves.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Byung-Hyun Kim.

The Braves plan start some guy by the name of John Smoltz.

Kim will probably be his usual self, give up a couple of home runs, walk a few and strikeout a bunch.  He has probably been the Marlins most consistent starter this season.  He is always good to go at least five, not to mention he is fun to watch pitch.

Smoltz is busy solidifying his way to being a first ballot Hall of Famer.  Now for the good news, he has faced the Marlins twice this year and has yet to win.  Of course that has more to do with the our pitchers holding the Braves offense down until we could beat up their bullpen.  And not because the Marlins offense rock Smoltz like the Casbah.  If reference explaining is needed, I will do it later tonight in the Open Thread.

Ichthyomancy is very sad that none of the Braves series is being shown on TBS.  I mean really, whose cable system has Turner South anyway.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
