Scott Olsen under the weather

What else can go wrong?  In case you were wondering why the team looks so lethargic, there is bug going around.

A bug is working its way through the Marlins' clubhouse. Of the six or so players battling cold symptoms, pitcher Scott Olsen appears to have been hit hardest. Olsen is scheduled to start Tuesday night, when the Marlins open a three-game series at home against the Cleveland Indians.

Olsen not only looked feverish Saturday, but said he has been unable to eat anything but lettuce the past two days.

Lettuce?  Personally I tend to go with chicken noodle soup when I feel like he does.  But to each his own.

If Scott doesn't have a miraculous recovery and if he does pitch tomorrow, there is next to no way he will go more than five innings.

It just keeps getting better and better.  This team really needs to catch a break.
