The Miami Marlins will get a shot at the Arizona Diamondbacks in an odd four-game series (apparently due to a scheduling oversight that had the D'Backs playing in too many days in a certain period of time) that may bring some interesting things to the Marlins' forefront. But for tonight, the series opener, we're going to have a good old fashioned soft-tossing lefty matchup on our hands, as Mark Buehrle battles Joe Saunders.
