Joe Blanton (1-4, 5.57) vs. Tyler Chatwood (5-5, 5.49).
Blanton got his first Dodger win in his last outing, seven days ago. We're down by three games with five for both us and the Cardinals to play. That gives us a tragic number of 3 out of the ten possible relevant outcomes that could happen. So it's not like the season rests on the shoulders of Joe Blanton, right? Right?!
(The print edition of the LA Times already laid claim to the pun Dodgers behind the eight ball, referring to the Dodgers scoring eight runs the last three games. But tonight, will eight be enough?)
