Dontrelle Willis will take the hill for the Fish for the first time this season against Toma Ohka and the former Montrel Expos, now Washington Nationals.
This will be the first of many meetings between the two clubs, and for the Marlins to have the year that most folks expect, soundly winning the season series against the Nats will be critical.
Also, I'm ending my self-imposed banishment from Marlins games as I'm attending tonight's contest. Yeah, yeah - I know. Just couldn't resist watching the D-Train in person tonight. And yes, this probably means that I'll be back many more times this year.
Please leave your thoughts and observations about tonight's game in the comments below. And if you're going to be at the game, look for me - I'll be the dorky looking guy in section 248.
