The Marlins are in the town that booed Santa Claus, lucky us, to begin a six-game road trip against the Phillies and the Mets. Contrary to what some have written, the Marlins don't have win both of series to stay in the hunt for the division title. The Fish will face the two six more times each. Of course, it would make life much easier if we go 6-0 on the trip, but it is not the end of world if we don't.

Johnson will face the Phillies for the second time this season. In his first start he limited the...you know, it's hard to keep my hatred for the Phillies out of my writing, nonetheless...those guys to 2 runs in 6.2 innings. Josh is giving up hits, but has always found a way to get out of it.

Moyer, who sold his sole to the Devil some years back, will take the mound for the Phillies. Every Marlins fan knows that Moyer has 10 career starts against the Fish and has won all of them. Moyer is a soft-tossing lefty. His win streak has to end one day and this would be a very good day for it to happen.

Ichthyomancy is ready to go. Best of Luck to You!
