The Chicago Cubs are in town for a two-game set.

Ricky Nolasco is on the hill for the Marlins. Ricky is on a roll and there is no reason it shouldn't continue tonight. He is normally very tough on the Cubs and he does his best work when at home. If he has command of his breaking pitches he can shut anybody down.

Ryan Dempster toes the rubber for the Cubs. You remember him, you should. He was once a Marlin. The Marlins have never hit Dempster well and by that I mean, like almost not at all. He throws primarily just three pitches: a fastball (90 mph), slider and splitter. The fastball is used to setup the breaking pitches up.

The Marlins lineup is as follows:

Coghlan, CF
Ramirez, SS
LoMo, LF
Gaby, 1B
Dobbs, 3B
Stanton, RF
Buck, 2
Infante, 2B
Nolasco, P

Guess we are going to try this one again. It worked last time.

Ichthyomancy is making the white rabbit look early.

Best of Luck to You!
