Scoreboard Watching: May 3

Two NL West games of interest on the plate today, while the Dodgers prepare for a three-game series against the Brewers:

First up we've got D'backs at Astros at 5p. Cesar "Exxon" Valdez (0-0, no ERA) faces Filepe Paulino (0-3, 5.40 ERA) at Minute Maid Park. The Diamondbacks are currently tied for fourth / last place along with our Dodgers, so we might as well root for the 'Stros, the worst team in the National League (at 8-16, they are already 8.5 games back and it's May 3).

The more interesting game, however, is Rockies at Padres, with 2010 no-hitter pitcher Ubaldo Jimemez (5-0, 0.79 ERA) going against Kevin Correia (4-1, 3.86). The Padres still lead the NL West with a 16-9 record, four ahead of the third-place Rox and five ahead of us. Let's hope Ubaldo pitches to form.

Technically, and according to tradition, we SHOULD be hanging out in this thread. Maybe I'll go check another one.

I had no idea Torrealba was a Padre now. The scoring summary for the COL/SD game was confusing the hell out of me for a little bit there.
