Aaron Harang (7-5, 3.39) vs. Trevor Cahill (8-9, 3.86).
First place feels pretty good, no? Sweeping the Giants in their own stadium, outscoring them 19-3 over the three games, and watching Hanley Ramirez spark the lineup, all made for a wonderful weekend for Dodger fans. The first place blue ribbons match our outfits!
But lurking just round the bend (obscured by the Giants' Pablo Sandoval) are the Diamondbacks, last year's NL West winner and only 4.5 games behind us and the Giants. Tonight starts a three game series before an off-day, while the Giants host the LOLMets for four (in which they'll miss R.A. Dickey, unfortunately). So we're going to have to take this series if for nothing else than to defend multiple flanks.
No, not "flank steaks", Juan Uribe. Calm down.
UPDATE 4:54p: SoSG Stubbs will be there in the Loge section tonight! Post a comment if you're there and need accomplices for your heroic ventures at the Stadium.
