Marlins (Live) Blog Vs. Mets and Cardinals


For those of you Marlins fans that visited us yesterday, you know that we provided you with a live blog that you could use to keep up to date as the Marlins took on the Cardinals in Miami’s opening Grapefruit League game. Well today we are going to take on a task even more daunting. We will be live blogging both Marlins’ split squad games at the same time.

At 1:05pm EST, the Marlins will take on the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium in a rematch of yesterday’s 5-4 Miami victory. The Marlins will send number 2 starter Nathan Eovaldi to the hill, and he will take on Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn. Meanwhile, at 1:10pm EST, Miami will also start their game against the New York Mets, as Kevin Slowey takes on John Lannan. Slowey is battling for the 5th spot on in the Marlins rotation, or possibly the long-reliever role out of the bullpen.

Be sure to take part in our live blog below and scroll down to the comments section. We will be doing our best to bring you all the Marlins action in a fun-filled day. Feel free to ask questions about the team or what is going on, and we will love to answer them for you. Want to know how a particular player is performing? We will be glad to tell you.
