Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Mets at Marlins (9/20)

New, comments

The Marlins start their final home stand of the year and first up will be the Mets.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.

The Mets have in their plans Tom Glavine.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Willis is going for his second win in a row.  Normally when Willis pitches against the Mets I just sit down with my popcorn and watch the Mets fans cry.  But this year has been different thanks to the "new improved delivery".  However, Dontrelle is quite capable to bring on the magic once again.

Glavine, in case you didn't know it, is a lefty.  Strangely, Glavine has had his troubles in JRS where he has logged a 4.33 ERA and has a .295 BAA.  I wouldn't count on those holding up.  Normally the best strategy against him is to get him out of the game as early as possible and then beat up the bullpen.

Ichthyomancy is ready to spoil something.

If you would like to checkout the pulse of the Mets fans, head on over to Amazin' Avenue.

[Update]: You really should read GameFish's post at Hook, Line Drive, & Sinker. It's a classic.
