Clayton Kershaw (2-3, 4.60) vs. Jered Weaver (3-2, 2.59).
Despite his Shaggy surfer dude appearance, Jeff Weaver is an articulate guy, and his support for his brother is admirable. But while Jeff might be busy balancing loyalties, Dodger fans will have no trouble rooting against Jered, he of the 1.54 career ERA against the Dodgers. Jered also pitched six innings in the Angels' crazy no-hit loss to the Dodgers in June of last year.
The Dodgers' own phenom Kershaw flirted with a no-no of his own in his last start and looks to even his record with a win today. And while the Dodgers are top dog right now, they still have the majors' worst interleague record (20-43) since 2005. So something's gotta give.
In roster news, the Dodgers plan to put Xavier Paul on the disabled list while promoting Jamie Hoffmann.
