|(Not Jim Tracy's ridiculous face)|
Is it a good thing when one of your divisional rivals fires a manager that annoys you? It depends on the situation. Is this Son still relieved not to be seeing Jim Tracy's ridiculous face on his tee-vee this evening? Absolutely.
Both pitchers are coming into tonight's game looking to notch their first decisions of the season, though they've gotten there through different circumstances. Chatwood had a shaky start against Atlanta, giving up four runs in six innings, but the Rox bullpen pulled out a win anyway. Lilly, on the other hand, only gave up a single run against the Mets, but the Dodgers managed to squander the advantage anyway.
The shine might be starting to come off of Colorado's hot start, and Tulo might be riding the bench with an injury, but it will still be up to the Dodgers to prove that they can hang with (or neutralize) the Rockies' firepower.
|Apropos of nothing.|
