Icthyomancy explainer

Note: I started tallying up Icthy scores yesterday and, predictably, it took me a lot longer than I thought it would. I will have updated standings soon. In the meanwhile, keep 'em coming.

Pitching Matchup

Team Pitcher 2017 ERA 2017 FIP 2017 ZiPS Projected ERA
MIA Dan Straily 13.50 8.70 4.28
ATL Bartolo Colon 1.50 3.66 4.20

I don't care what team he's on, Bartolo Colon is a delight.

The good news for Dan Straily is that he set the bar so low in his debut that he has nowhere to go for this start but upwards.

Today's Lineups

Ender Inciarte - CF Dee Gordon - 2B
Dansby Swanson - SS J.T. Realmuto - C
Freddie Freeman - 1B Christian Yelich - CF
Nick Markakis - RF Giancarlo Stanton - RF
Adonis Garcia - 3B Justin Bour - 1B
Brandon Phillips - 2B Marcell Ozuna - LF
Tyler Flowers - C Derek Dietrich - 3B
Emilio Bonifacio - LF J.T. Riddle - SS
Bartolo Colon - RHP Dan Straily - RHP

JT Riddle makes his Major League debut, batting eighth at SS. The Marlins make MLB history tonight as the only team ever to feature two JTs in a lineup (Note: Not sure if true).

Question of the day:
