Cliff Lee (12-9, 3.18) vs. David Price (19-6, 2.72).
COMMENTS: The bad news is, of course, the Dodgers aren't in the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The good news, however, is we've got baseball playoffs, and even if the Dodgers aren't in it, we can certainly root...for mid-day distractions. Exhibit 1 is this morning's Rangers-Rays game, to kick the whole 2010 MLB Playoffs off (get ready for some GT Scooby Doo-ing today).
Lee, almost a Dodger addition mid-season (scratch that--we really, really wanted Octavio Dotel instead), will pitch against an empty Tropicana field backdrop--a fact I'm sure Price will vociferously lament to both fans in attendance.
