|2008 - Scott Olsen||8-11||32||32||0||0||0||0||195.2||192||104||92||29||68||109||4.23||1.33|
|2008 - Oliver Perez||10-7||33||33||0||0||0||0||188.2||163||98||89||24||102||174||4.25||1.40|
This is the final game of the Marlins 2008 season. It is also the final regular season game in the history of Shea Stadium.
Olsen will be making his 33rd start of the season, which ain't too bad. As with any Olsen start, if guys will play defense and Scottie O. keeps the ball in the park and holds down the walks, he should be fine. That keeping the ball in the park thing has been a problem against the Mets this season. But maybe he has figured how to avoid that problem. Olsen hates day games but does some of his best work in them.
Perez is going on three-days rest since the Mets are tied with Brewers in the wild card race. Perez had a rough outing in his last start only going 4.1 innings, allowing 5 runs on 6 hits and 5 walks. Perez throws reasonably hard and tends to use his slider as an out pitch. He also has control issues and walks a fair number of batters. Perez, also, does some of his best work in day games. He is lefty and lefties sometimes give the Marlins problems.
A win for the Fish will give them the third highest number of wins during the regular season in franchise history.
Ichthyomancy is ready to crown a champion. Should you find yourself behind in the standings, you're not out of it yet. Say, your 127 points behind, all you have to do is pick 127 events in your AAB selections and get them all right. No problem.
Best of Luck to You!
