The Marlins coming off their first win in the Grapefruit League this season will once again face the Baltimore Orioles, but this time it is a real road game. That's right, the Marlins will get on a chartered jet at Jupiter's Intergalactic Airport and fly all the way to Fort Lauderdale. If the boys look a little sluggish today, they are probably jet lagged.
Dontrelle Willis will make his spring debut as a starter for the Fightin' Fish. He is scheduled to be followed by Matt Lindstrom, Henry Owens, Jose Garcia, Jesus Delgado, Scott Tyler and Aaron Thompson.
The Orioles will send Erik Bedard to the mound to start it off. Who they have slated after that, I'm not quite sure.
Game time is at the usual, everyone has a late afternoon tee time, 1:05 p.m.
The game is on local radio.
I guess the radio announcers, like the players, are gradually working themselves back into regular season form. I mean, come on, would you really expect them to go all the way to Jupiter on their first outing.
