(Note: posting is light today and probably will be again tomorrow due to my day job. Sorry, but it can't be helped.)
The Marlins are off on a short four game road trip which takes them to Chicago to face the Cubs. Tonight's game will be the only night game of the series and strangely, 'cause it doesn't feel that way, the Marlins have a better record in day games than in night. Go figure.
Olsen who is roughly going home should have a number of well wishers in the crowd. If Scott can keep the long ball in check he should be okay. This will be his first start in Wrigley Field.
Zambrano is the ace of the Cubs staff. He is a sinker ball pitcher who throws hard, most of time. Thank God. If he can control his sinker, he is very tough. But if he leaves it up, he is very hittable. The problem is he normally doesn't have too many off days.
Ichthyomancy hasn't tasted an Old Style in quite some time. It is possible that a few Cubs fans will drop by, be nice to them if at all possible. I mean really, they still think that Bartman lost the league championship for their team in 2003.
Best of Luck to You!
