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

New, comments

The two teams will play the rubber game of the series today.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.

The Phillies have on tap Jamie Moyer.

Game time is 1:35 p.m.

Willis pitched a beauty in his last start but unfortunately the bullpen couldn't close the deal.  As usual, if he can keep the ball in the park, he should do fine.  Willis has done some of his best work this season in Sunday day games.

Moyer is a soft-tossing lefty and as all of you know, the Marlins have problems with soft-tossing lefties.  To illustrate this point: Moyer has started 6 times against the Marlins in his career with all of the starts being in 2006 or 2007.  In those starts Moyer has a record of 6-0.

Ichthyomancy is still rubbing the eyes but is ready.

Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
