Real talk, I took on Icthyomancy in the beginning of the season because it was a site tradition and I wanted to promote reader activity, but unfortunately I haven't been able to keep up with it as I wished. This, combined with the Marlins relatively poor play, has led to decreased participation, so I'm going to go ahead and admit defeat here.

That being said, I did promise the eventual winner the chance to write a piece that we would put up on the front page at season's end, and I don't have to tally everything up to know who it is. Congratulations paolo2387, your persistence as a Marlins fan has finally paid off!

If any of you still have the itch to post predictions in the game threads, by all means continue to do so, just know that I'm not going to be sitting up by candlelight at 3 am trying to figure out the score at this point. It's all in good fun anyway.
