Time to play ball, time for a group lo viste

PHILADELPHIA — It was a dramatic off day for the Marlins on Tuesday, as manager Ozzie Guillen was handed a five-game suspension.

On Wednesday, it’s back on the field for the Marlins, who can claim a series win if they can beat the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

The pitching matchup is a marquee one, as Josh Johnson seeks to rebound from an Opening Night loss to the Cardinals. Philadelphia is going with their ace, Roy Halladay.

It’s been an emotionally draining few days for the Marlins, as the Guillen story gained steam since last Friday.

One of the Marlins’ rallying signals this year is giving the “lo viste” sign, which is two fingers spread sideways over one eye. Lo viste is Spanish for, “See that?”

Emilio Bonifacio and Jose Reyes have given fans plenty to see in the first five games.

Bonifacio, with four stolen bases, is tied for the Major League lead. And Reyes has hit safely in all five games.

Lo viste is gaining momentum, and catching on with fans of all ages.
