The Marlins are finishing up the road trip tonight and are looking not only to winning the final series but have a winning road trip. It hasn't felt like it could be a winning road trip has it? But it is true.

Sanchez will be making his sixth start of the season. His last start went 6.1 innings and would've been a quality start had the bullpen not allowed every inherited runner to score. As it was, he was charged with four runs. Anibal is starting to get more efficient in his starts cutting down on walks though hits are still a bit of problem but most of them are just singles to batters who get stranded.

Morton is one of those young stuff guys. You know them, we have a lot in the minors. He can throw excellent stuff but he can't he always control it. He will either go about seven innings or will be lucky to get through three. Needless to say, walks can be a problem for him.

If you noticed from last night, the Ichthyomancy table was placed below the fold, so to speak. That is where it will be in the near future so it doesn't push everything off the front page as readily. The option of putting it below the fold, so to speak, is just recently available. I guess the tech guys at SBN didn't like our table. Go figure.

Anyway, Ichthyomancy is ready to win its second series in-a-row. Best of Luck to You!
