Carlos Monasterios (1-0, 1.90) vs. Jeff Francis (1-0, 0.68).
COMMENTS: That, my friends, is a short leash. Which Monasterios is likely to be on due to his relative inactivity of late. Which means the bullpen better be ready, which is a concern because you don't want to burn your bullpen in the first game of a series at Coors Field.
Worse, the Rockies are hot hot hot right now, winners of five straight. The Dodgers aren't exactly slacking themselves, having won 17 games in May. Losing two of three to the Cubs kinda stung, but at leash we miss ÜberUbaldo this series. Woof!
