Big story today is obviously the team coming to terms with shortstop Hanley Ramirez. Although nothing has been signed, guys on the team think it's a great step forward for the franchise and shows, perhaps, they are committed to doing something in South Florida in the future.
More on that later. Here are the lineups for tonight, same as Friday (with the exception of the pitcher). Matt Treanor goes for the third straight night, Wes Helms in for Mike Jacobs again.
Fredi Gonzalez said the team wants Josh Willingham to get in some live at bats before he returns off the DL, and he could go on a rehab assignment in the minors as early as tomorrow.
Marlins: CF Ross; LF Hermida; SS Ramirez; 3B Cantu; 2B Uggla; LF Gonzalez; 1B Helms; C Treanor; P Miller.
Nats: 2B Lopez; SS Guzman; 3B Zimmerman; 1B Johnson; CF Milledge; RF Kearns; LF Dukes; C Flores; P O'Connor.
