Jason Schmidt (2-1, 4.50) vs. Braden Looper (9-5, 5.03).
1. Will the Brewers retaliate? Your move, Brewers pitching staff. Will it be war or peace?
2. Can we predict that Jason Schmidt will continue to be unpredictable? Everyone thought he was going to bomb in his last start. Instead, he twirled six scoreless innings against the Braves. Who knew? Not us.
3. Is Manny back after last night's home run? He doesn't have to bop another homer to convince us, but another 0-for or 1-for performance won't be very reassuring.
4. Will I eat a chili-cheese Dodger Dog in the press box tonight? Normally I wouldn't think twice about it, but I had pizza last night. A Dodger blogger doesn't keep his girlish figure just by sitting around watching Dodger games, you know!

UPDATE 4.35p, from SoSG Sax: Okay, explain this, you AccuScore idiots:
How can we be the favorite to win the game (top bars), yet projected to score 0.1 fewer runs (lower left corner)? Doesn't the team with the most runs win the game?
