Willis to face Red Sox for first time

Boston (47-28) at Florida (34-41), 7:35 p.m. ET Friday

 

Having just taken two out of three against the Devil Rays and won 13 out of their past 17 games, the $64,000 question becomes how will the Marlins do against a team playing as well as they are?

 

They'll find out on Friday when the American League East-leading Red Sox, who've won 11 straight, come to town on Friday to begin a three-game series against Florida.

 

Facing the Sox will be one of the toughest tests they've faced this season, one manager Joe Girardi expects his team to be pumped up for.

 

"We've got a recent World Series winner coming to town, they've got to be excited," Girardi said. "There will definitely be some emotions there in facing them."

 

The Marlins last faced the Red Sox in 2003, dropping two out three games to Boston. Since Interleague Play started in 1997, the Marlins have only taken one series against the Red Sox, winning two out of three in that first year.

 

Taking the mound in hopes of turning the Marlins' luck against Boston around will be Dontrelle Willis, who had won his past three decisions before his last start, a complete-game loss against the Yankees.

 

He'll face Jason Johnson, who hasn't won an outing since making his first start for the Red Sox after being acquired from the Indians following four straight losses.

 

As important as the series may be as a barometer for where the Marlins are right now, Girardi and the team aren't looking towards any future implications that may result from a successful series.

 

"We're just taking one series at a time and see where we are," Girardi said.

Nice game thread.

 

 

 

If Alex Gonzales swung at ball 1 in the middle of the woods would anyone feel the breeze?

 

 

If the Marlins win and then I go walk around the parking lot after the game saying, "how bout those Red Sox?", how many fights will I get into?

What's the TV sked? Fox Sports carries statewide so I'll be set..but SUN Sports here doesn't carry the Marlins. I'll have to follow on Gameday...because I sure as hell do NOT want to watch fly fishermen playing poker or some crap like that...
