Olsen was true to form

If Manny is just being Manny, then Scott can just be Scott.

"If that's what it takes, I'll start screaming in the top of the first.'' - Marlins hurler Scott Olsen, on getting angry with Philadelphia's Chase Utley for calling timeout just as he was about to deliver a pitch in Tuesday's game. Utley walked on the next pitch and Olsen angrily shouted at him as he trotted to first base. In the bottom of the inning, the Marlins totaled four extra-base hits to rally for a 5-3 win.

Olsen never has cared for the Phillies too much and I'm guessing, they don't think much of him.  The thing about Olsen, when he pitches, he is almost unbelievably competitive, which isn't a bad thing.  In his future starts against the Phillies, it could be turn back the clock to 2003 and 2004 when both teams spent more time throwing at each other than anything else.  Not to mention the bench clearing brawls.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
