Stephen Fife (3-3, 2.76) vs. Carlos Villanueva (2-7, 4.33).
Did you hear Charley Steiner on the radio the other day when Kevin Kennedy told him Fife might be starting today? Charley just about lost his shit imagining the fun he would have announcing a (Darwin) Barney-Fife matchup. Rick Monday even got a zinger in, saying, "You can spend the next two days rehearsing your ad-libs."
Announcer heaven aside, the Dodgers can execute a four-game sweep of the Cubs by battering Villanueva. "The right-hander has a 6.04 ERA in five starts since rejoining the rotation July 7 and an 8.22 ERA in his last three," ESPN tells us. The only question is whether Yasiel Puig gets the day off to rest his tender wrist.
