The Marlins start their exhibition season today against the University of Miami.
Starting on the hill for the Marlins will be Jason Vargas. His mound opponent will be UM junior Ricky Orta. The young Mr. Orta is 1-1 on the season with a 3.60 ERA and is holding opponents to a team-low .176 average.
If everyone remembers last year's game, this will be by no means a gimme. The Hurricanes are nationally ranked and are one of the premier college baseball programs in the country.
If you are fortunate enough to have a chance to go out to Roger Dean Stadium today, the game starts at 3:05 p.m.
Consider this a game open thread.
