The Phillies make their first trip to South Florida in 2011 for a three-gamer with the Florida Marlins. Much will be made about Tuesday's marquee pitching matchup of Josh Johnson and Roy Halladay, but the real fireworks are bound to happen tonight, in my opinion.
Joe Blanton, fresh off the disabled list, will toe the (bacon) slab for the Phillies, and will be opposed by Javier Vazquez, who has lost several miles per hour off his fastball and is getting pounded accordingly. Getcha popcorn.
Discuss the game below.
