|Pictured: The 2012 Dodgers' quest for the post-season.|
Josh Becket (1-2, 3.45 ERA) vs. Edinson Volquez (10-11, 4.30 ERA)
The good news is that the Dodgers are still alive in the wild card race. The bad news is that time and tides are conspiring against us. If we're going to get this done, it's going to take some divine intervention.
Our patented noffense has shown sputtering signs of life, but it will be heading down to Petco Park tonight, a veritable temple to run suppression. It might take a miracle, but this is baseball! Weird shit happens every day, right?
One has only to look as far as the Padres recent late season collapses (Thanks for nothing in 2010 AGAIN, you assholes) to see exactly how strange the last few games of the season can get. So, let's do the only thing we can do: Win our remaining games, and hope the Cardinals clubhouse is blessed by a particularly infectious strain of the French pox.
