Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Nationals (9/4)

New, comments

The Marlins are going to give that victory thing another shot tonight.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis

The Nationals are going to trot out Shawn Hill.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Willis continues to be haunted by the long ball, in his last start he gave up three.  If he can find a way to keep the ball in the park, he will be fine.  If not, it's breakout the lumber boys 'cause we got some scoring to do. Oh, I'm not sure that Treanor will be catching. It sounds like it may be another day or two before he is ready for action. But you never know.

Hill is a sinker ball pitcher and all that entails.  If he can get it sink, lots of ground balls.  If not, it could be batting practice.  But for the most part this season, he has had good command of the sinker.  Lefties are generally more productive against him.

Ichthyomancy is relearning the old lesson: Holidays are more fun than work days.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
