Admist a swirling controversy between manager Joe Girardi and owner Jeffery Loria, the Marlins will continue their three-game series with Washington on Wednesday in a 7:05 p.m. ET contest.

 

Girardi tried to downplay the Sunday meeting between himself and the Florida owner after the Marlins' 7-3 loss to the Dodgers, when he met with reporters prior to Tuesday's game with Washington. Reports from the South Florida media have claimed that the Marlins skipper's job was in peril after the meeting with Loria.

 

Girardi will try to get the focus back on the field as he sends Dontrelle Willis to the mound. Willis is 9-3 against the Nationals in his career, with a 3.35 ERA, one complete game and one shutout.

 

Ramon Ortiz will get the start for Washington. Ortiz is 1-2 against Florida in his career in four starts, with a 3.24 ERA.

Do you guies think Soriano will ever go back to the number 3 or 4 spot? Atleast number 2? He is way to productive to be a leadoff hitter

 

What? :plain

It seems so weird to have a leadoff hiter that has the HR's and RBI's that he has. With their line up he should be batting 3 or so.
