The battle of the NL East division leaders begins today.

The Marlins are on their longest road trip of the season and then some.

That would be starting Tuesday night, when the Marlins begin their first - and longest - trip of the season. Florida has three-game series in Atlanta, Washington and Pittsburgh before returning home for a three-game series against Philadelphia.

But that's just the start. The Marlins then will play three games in New York and four in Chicago before a four-game homestand against Cincinnati and Atlanta. Then they're on the road again against Colorado and Milwaukee.

In all, the Marlins will play 16 of their next 19 on the road, and 22 of their next 29.

The Marlins were a decent road team last year (39-41) and should be again this year. The problem is the Marlins were pretty awful when it came to winning in 2008 in Turner Field going 3-6. But this is a new year.

I'm so out of time.

Ichthyomancy is kinda sorta ready.

Best of Luck to You!
