The Marlins -- not the Dolphins -- will be the first South Florida team to see the new Jets quarterback. B.F. is throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the matinee tilt at Shea. Scott Olsen is a big Favre fan, so we should expect to see him standing on the top dugout steps for the ceremony.
Luis Gonzalez bought Olsen a Favre jersey, which the pitcher has hanging up in his locker and plans to wear all week leading up to the first Dolphins-Jets showdown just to irritate Fins fans. Olsen says he's not a Jets fan. Just likes Favre. On a more serious note, Olsen is limping around the clubhouse with a sore right ankle, which he injured Saturday night while covering first base.
Swears he'll be fine for his next scheduled start on Thursday which Fredi Gonzalez also confirmed.
We're still waiting for the Mets to get their act together and put out the lineup sheet. But here's how the Marlins are shaping up today:
Marlins: SS Hanley Ramirez, LF Luis Gonzalez, 3B Jorge Cantu, 1B Mike Jacobs, 2B Dan Uggla, CF Cody Ross, RF Jeremy Hermida, C Misty-Matt Treanor, P Josh Johnson.
Mets: SS Jose Reyes, 2B Argenis Reyes, 3B David Wright, 1B Carlos Delgado, CF Carlos Beltran, LF Daniel Murphy, C Brian Schneider, RF Endy Chavez, P Mike Pelfrey.
