Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Phillies (9/8)

New, comments

The Marlins and the Phillies will face off once again today, and by today, I mean during the day.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Rick VandenHurk.

The Phillies plan to send John Ennis to the hill.

Game time is 3:55 p.m.

VandenHurk is his last outing pitched pretty well through five but things fell apart in the sixth.  Rick is still on the 100 pitch count and will remain so for the rest of the season, therefore don't expect him to go much more than five innings.

Ennis will be making his second appearance for the Phillies since being called up from Triple-A and his second start ever in the Majors.  His first was in 2002.  I don't know much about him other than he made seven starts in Triple-A this year and posted a 3.38 ERA along the way.

Since the game was picked up by FOX as one of its regional broadcast, you may be blackout from television coverage if the game isn't in your region.  I know I am.  If this is the case for you, it's Dave and Roxy time.

Ichthyomancy is ready for action. Be sure to get those picks in on time since we are facing a day game.
