The Giants are in town, sporting their winning record and tied for last in their division. Oh, how the West has changed.
The starting pitcher for the Marlins is Scott Olsen. The Giants will trot out Matt Morris to the hill.
Game time is 6:05 p.m.
I really don't care that the game is at twilight which makes it difficult for the players in the early innings - I get to see it.
Morris hasn't been the Morris of old. If the team can get runners on, the hard part, and if they can keep themselves from getting picked-off, the harder part, we should be able to score some runs.
If you get a chance during the game you ought to check out the open thread at McCovey Chronicles. I haven't read one of their game threads this year but last year, they were cleverly funny.
