OK I'm kind of mailing in this one. Not because I'm down on the Nationals but because I did a preview of this exact pitching match-up just last week, so really I'm kind of out of things to say about Tim Redding and Josh Johnson. Click here to check it out if you didn't read it the first time. It's a pretty good one. And for more on the Marlins' offense, check out my preview of game one from yesterday.
My prediction: Hmmm... let me think. I'm going to say that Tim Redding goes 6 innings and gives up 3 runs. Final score: 5-1 Marlins.
