Roberto Hernandez (8-9, 3.81) vs. Gio Gonzalez (6-9, 3.86).
It's the battle of two guys whose last names end in -ez! Or, the battle of National League division leaders, if you will. And though others are talking about how the Nationals (with a recent 10-game win streak and a six-game lead in the East) are heading in a different direction than the Dodgers, I think we might surprise Labor Day crowds today at the Stadium. Gonzalez, after all, is 0-5 with a 4.38 ERA in his last nine outings; the Nationals are 4-19 over their last 23 at Dodger Stadium.
But let's just have a nice fun day out there today, and let's make sure no one gets hurt this time (in all seriousness, that was scary; even a year later, I feel really bad for Harper). I know it sounds funny, but I just can't stand the pain. Take it...EZ.
