The home stand continues and the Marlins welcome the AL Central leading Indians to town. If for some reason you haven't seen the Indians play in the last few years, they are very good.
The Marlins starting pitcher is still scheduled to be lettuce eating Scott Olsen.
The Indians will send out Fausto Carmona to the mound.
Game time is 7:05 p.m. (Woo Hoo! A night game.)
Olsen, as you all know, has been sick with flu like symptoms recently. Assuming Scott is feeling well enough to pitch, his problems so far this season have come from him giving up walks. He has shown short burst of brilliance in between throwing too many pitches early in the game and handing out free passes.
Carmona has won his last seven decisions. He has a nasty sinker and has given up three runs or fewer in nine of his eleven starts. He can be hit but most of the hits will be of the ground ball variety. Carmona does tend to wear down after 90 pitches.
