Ricky Nolasco (6-9, 3.75) vs. Esmil Rogers (3-4, 3.84).
What in the name of holy heck is going on here? The Dodgers are currently invincible — down 8-3 after Capuano and Marmol torched the place? No problem! — and are in position for their second straight sweep against an east coast team. They could use the momentum, too, because the Cincinnati not-nearly-as-sucky-as-Toronto Reds will be waiting at Dodger Stadium tomorrow evening.
The Blue Jays held a players-only meeting before yesterday's game, so they figure to be especially desperate today. No word if they've promised Esmil Rogers that they'll rename the Rogers Centre for him if he wins.
