Olsen still in pain

Olsen isn't a 100 percent.

Scott Olsen is determined to make his scheduled start tonight despite a bruised left heel on the foot he uses to push off from the rubber.

''I'm not going to miss a start,'' vowed Olsen, who was hit in the foot by a line drive in his start Friday against the Washington Nationals. ``But it's sore. It doesn't feel good.''

Olsen's left leg, from the knee down, was wrapped in ice Tuesday.

That's because Olsen said the pain extends from his calf to his heel, the result of walking on his toes the past few days to remove weight from his foot.

Olsen is planning to get through tonight by running on adrenaline.  It could work, but if he doesn't last long in the game, you will know why.
