WASHINGTON -- Quick reminder that the 30-minute special preview of Showtime's "The Franchise -- A Season with the Miami Marlins," airs tonight at 9 p.m.
In the meantime, the Marlins are preparing for a rise-and-shine 1:05 p.m. start against Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals following last night's 2-0 loss. Manager Ozzie Guillen has done some tweaking to the lineup, going heavy on the lefty hitters against the hard-throwing Strasburg. Switch-hitter Emilio Bonifacio is making his first start of the season at second base, lefty Chris Coghlan goes to center, lefty Greg Dobbs is in right. Lefty Logan Morrison is in the cleanup spot.
Here's what Strasburg will be seeing today: 1. Reyes, ss; 2. Bonifacio, 2b; 3. Ramirez, 3b; 4. Morrison, lf; 5. Sanchez, 1b; 6. Dobbs, rf; 7. Buck, c; 8. Coghlan, cf; 9. Sanchez, p.
