Hefner and the rest of the Mets' starting rotation. Is there a pair of aces in there? (Sorry for a lack of saggy boobs. [But not that sorry.])
Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-1, 4.01) vs. Jeremy Hefner (0-2, 7.07).
After a series-starting pounding, followed by a totally deflating collapse, the Dodgers try to sneak out of Citi Field with a series win and a road series stalemate (3-3). Ryu got shelled by the Orioles for five runs over six innings, in his last start. Hefner got shelled by the Nationals for three runs and 2 HR over four innings, in his last start.
The Dodgers have the fourth-best OBP in the majors (.344) but rank 29th in runs scored (only ahead of Miami). So my guess is, we will only beat Hefner if we can keep hitting balls in play, boy. And if we can make sure our all-star, Matt Kemp, who has just started hitting again, starts the game in centerfold.
(Man, these early morning breakfast games. Honestly, I don't see how those guys on the east coast handle this.)
