Another Dodgers off-day, what is there to occupy us?
The Giants kickoff against the Rockies at 5.40p, with "Ashley" Madison Bumgarner (0-1, 5.14) up against Aaron Cook (2-5, 4.69). The Rockies are two games behind us in third place; the Giants are 2.5 GB us in fourth place.
The real game of interest, however, kicks off at 7p, when the Astros play the Padres at the big pooch bowl. Brian Moehler (1-4, 5.63) duels Clayton Richard (5-4, 2.75). With the Padres three games ahead of us in first place, sporting the NL's best record, and the 'Stros 17 games below .500 with the league's second-to-worst record, I'm not hopeful about this one. But I'll probably watch anyway.
