The Miami Marlins split a four-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and now they are continuing their west coast swing with a trip to Los Angeles to once again face the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-game set. Yes, that means more Hanley Ramirez, this time while he's doing better. I can't contain my joy.

Tonight, Nathan Eovaldi gets a chance to start against his former team and continue his bounce back from a poor few starts.

Yeah, I don't like our chances. Eovaldi has been improving, but he needs to pound the strike zone and get the Dodgers swinging and missing.
