Clayton Kershaw (0-0, 0.00) vs. Kevin Correia (0-0, -.--).
Finally, the home opener that Dodger fans have been waiting for! With festivities including the Beach Boys, appearances from the 1962 team, and a naval flyover, this 50th anniversary celebration is going to start out with a bang. Festivities begin at 12.15p.
Meanwhile, about that game... Kershaw is feeling better than his road opener last week, which should spell bad news for the Pirates; as Jon Weisman punned earlier, the only hurling Kershaw should be doing today hopes to be from the mound. Correia is 5-4 with a 4.41 ERA lifetime, but was 0-1 with a 5.68 ERA last year (one start, we got 10 hits off him).
SoSG Orel, Dusty, and myself will be at the game this year, reporting as much as the spotty cellphone coverage (and beer-fueled, sun-baked field-level dehydration) will permit.
