First pitch just a little over 2 hours away. Marlins opening day lineup and miscellaneous.
As we inch close to the first pitch at Citi, a couple of questions to ponder.
Who pitches the 8th inning today? Hope for Johan Santana to have a low pitch count otherwise its time to play press your luck with who will be the 8th inning guy.
Why is Gary Matthews Jr Getting the nod for opening day?
Does it matter its one game. Pagan is 1-6 against Josh Johnson and Gary has not faced him. Manager Jerry prefers to have Cora batting first instead of batting 8th .
Darryl Strawberry throws out the first pitch.
The Marlins opening day lineup. Johnson has not lost to the Mets in the regular season.
