Game Today

The Marlins travel to Viera to play the Nationals.

The Marlins will start Josh Johnson at pitcher while the Nationals will place Ramon Ortiz on the hill.

Note of interest:  The Marlins will continue to use the DH until March 16.  The idea is to let the pitcher focus on pitching.

In the words of Lenny Harris:

"That's the first time I've ever seen that,'' Harris said before Monday's game, the third in a row in which the Marlins used a designated hitter while playing a National League team.

Breaking new ground left and right.

The game starts at 1:05 p.m.

Consider this an open thread - but you already know that.
