The Marlins have broken out the parkas are in Colorado. I will never understand, what seems like every year, the Marlins play the Rockies in April in Colorado and then face them again in July in Florida. It just doesn't make any sense, I mean, it is normally great baseball weather in Florida in April and it is very nice in Colorado in July. Why the teams are scheduled to play in the cold spot in April and the hot spot in July seems beyond reason.

Ricky Nolasco is on the hill for the Marlins. Ricky looked like Ricky in his last start. Nolasco normally does well against the Rockies, but when he is on, he does well against everyone. Don't know if the cold will have a negative effect on him.

Greg Smith is the Rockies starter. This is his first start ever against the Marlins and to top that off he is left-handed. He doesn't throw hard (87 mph fast ball) and does possess a pretty good change. So this could prove interesting. He has had some trouble finding the strike zone in the past.

From my understanding it has been snowing in Denver and there is 70% percent chance of rain tonight. Whether or not we get this game in, is up in the air.

Ichthyomancy is ready for Midnight Baseball.

Best of Luck to You!
