Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Astros (4/11)

The National League East leading Marlins are in Houston to take on the Astros.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Ricky Nolasco.

The Astros are going with Roy Oswalt.

Game time is 8:05 p.m.

Nolasco will be making his first start of season, taking over the spot left by VandenHurk. Ricky has looked good in long relief and the curve ball seems to be working. He got the memo and actually read it and has developed a change up which we should see tonight.

Oswalt is an All-World pitcher but is going through hard times in the early part of the season. He is having trouble locating his breaking pitches. With any luck, he won't discover the answer to his problems tonight.

Note to Mbaamin: I give up, there is no way I'm ever going to get enough free time to let you know your viewing problem. So I will do it here. The problem is with IE 6.0 and the way the new SB Nation sites are coded. The SB Nation sites are designed to look good in IE 7.0, Firefox, Safari and some others, but they never found a way to incorporate IE 6.0 without messing up all the others. The usual suggestion by the tech folks is to upgrade to IE 7.0, but you can't do that since you're running on Windows 2000. IE 7.0 won't work on your platform. (which by the way is one of my favorite Windows platforms, not that it matters) So that leaves you two options: either live with what you've got or download Firefox 2.0 and use it to view FishStripes. I wish I had better news, but I don't.

Ichthyomancy is good to go and ready for some action. So make your picks and Good Luck!
