CHICAGO -- Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla took Saturday off to rest a sore left hamstring, one that stiffened after he stretched out to make an out Friday. Uggla is back on the lineup card Sunday. But there's a chance he could get scratched again.
According to manager Fredi Gonzalez, Uggla will test it out before today's game and if he still feels it, he'll likely take the day off. If he doesn't, this is what the Marlins will go with against Carlos Zambrano: 1. Bonifacio, 3B; 2. Baker, C; 3. Ramirez, SS; 4. Cantu, 1B; 5. Uggla, 2B; 6. Hermida, LF; 7. Ross, CF; 8. Gload, RF; 9. Nolasco, P.
METS' MANUEL FINED: By the way, just wondering how you guys feel about Jerry Manuel getting fined by MLB for his stalling tactics against the Marlins on Wednesday? Sweet justice? Manuel pretty much laughed the whole thing off. Check out what former Herald Sports Writer Brian Costa wrote about Manuel's reaction to the fine in The Star-Ledger.
