Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Mets at Marlins (4/1)

The Marlins will try this once again. The good news is the pressure is off since the Marlins hopes for a perfect season (162-0) are off the table, the team can now just sit back and relax and play ball.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Rick VandenHurk.

The Mets are going with Pedro Martinez.

Game time is 7:10 p.m.

VandenHurk faced the Mets twice last year and the two outings, to put it mildly, didn't go that well. But that was last year and Rick is better at his craft now.

Martinez has been injured most of the last two seasons, but claims to be healthy now. Even assuming he is healthy, his dominance begins to quickly erode once he hits 100 pitches. So foul off some balls, boys.

Oh, if you click through the Game Thread, there is a game preview, which is probably a lot better than what I'm writing.

I'm still learning this new fandangled Game Thread thingy, but the Ichthyomancy table should be going right under this sentence, eventually. But in case I forget to tell you later: Good Luck!
