Zack Greinke (2-1, 4.80) vs. Tim Hudson (4-4, 4.80)*
Tim Hudson once filled Adam LaRoche's glove with human shit. (Deadspin)
I repeat: Tim Hudson once filled Adam LaRoche's glove with human shit. Does that sound like someone who should get to win a ballgame? No, I think not. (The baseball gods may agree with me, since he hasn't won a game since May 5th.)
On the other hand, the Dodgers' season to this point has been the equivalent of a glove full of human shit. Just when they thought they were out of the basement, the Padres shoved them back down the stairs. I want to say that this series against the Braves can't be worse than the last one, where the Dodgers were swept in three games (after holding leads in each), but now it's a four-game series. OF COURSE IT CAN BE WORSE.
I'll be at tonight's game, but up in the fancypants suites, as DelinO was recently. I promise to give the proletariat a wave or two.
*Hooray for identically mediocre ERAs!
