Ted Lilly (0-0, -.--) vs. Joe Wieland (0-0, -.--).
First, the bad news: Vin Scully's unlikely to return for this game. He'd hate us making a fuss about him, so we'll just leave it at that.
Apparently, all Saturday home games this season start at 6:10 p.m., presumably to accommodate folks who have to wake up early on Sundays, like church janitors and brunch chefs.
Ted Lilly comes off the DL to start tonight's game, which means someone got optioned or put on the DL. My guess is Todd Coffey to the DL.
In a shocking development, former Stone Temple Pilots lead singer Wieland has forsaken the rock 'n' roll world to become a pitcher for the Padres. No word on whether his bandmates will replace him, or become relief pitchers.
UPDATE: Great news! Vin's back tomorrow!
