Tonight it’s David vs. Goliath…or should I say, Brandon Webb vs. The Florida Marlins?
Last night, thanks in part to yet another Dan Uggla home run the Florida Marlins squeaked past the hot Arizona Diamondbacks. Tonight it’s not going to be that easy, though. On the mound for Arizona is Brandon Webb, a guy who is 9-0 and gives up well under 3 runs per outing. The Fish have all-around “nice guy” Ricky Nolasco on the mound. Ricky’s numbers aren’t as impressive (2-3, 5.18 ERA) but he has pitched well in his last couple of outings.
Everyone is going to be tuned in tonight to see if Webb can start the season at 10-0 so expect lots of exposure on ESPN & Baseball Tonight but it will be no easy task considering he has to face one of the hottest players in all of baseball right now in Dan Uggla, a hot since returning Mike Jacobs, and a man who is struggling but is looking to earn his just recently signed contract for $70 million, Hanley Ramirez.
Okay guys, make your predictions. The person that picks the correct winning team and is closest to the final score wins a random autograph, game-used, or low-numbered card from my vast collection of baseball cards!
P.S – It won’t be the card below because I don’t own it.
