Aaron Harang (0-1, 6.23 ERA) vs. Clayton Richard (1-0, 0.00 ERA)
The season is barely a week old and we're already getting a rerun? What's happening?! I thought it was sweeps!
Clayton Richard's dominant start last Sunday has been the only hiccup in the Dodgers' red hot 2012 start, so maybe they can get a little revenge tonight. It would be nice if Harang could go the distance, keeping the game out of the hands of the...ahem...less reliable relievers, and giving Javy Guerra a much needed day off. Javy's 5 saves in 5 tries is great and all, but we'd like to keep his arm from falling off before May.
As of this writing, it's been dumping down rain in L.A. all day (It does happen!), threatening to wash out the first Friday Night Fireworks of the year. (Look for more hilarious attendance jokes on Twitter...if the game itself isn't postponed.) I guess it's up to the Dodger bats to light up the night. With only one home run from someone not named Kemp or Ethier so far, we're due for some big blasts. Maybe from James Loney, who finally broke through with a hi... HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! Sorry, I couldn't finish that thought with a straight face.
