Game 8 Thread: April 14 vs. Mariners, 7p

So good, he needs no stat line.

David Huff (0-0, 0.00) vs. Hisashi Iwakuma (0-1, 6.00).

Don't hassle the Huff, okay? He went 2-0 this spring, with either a 1.50 or a 1.32 ERA this spring, which either way sounds pretty good ($48M man Brandon McCarthy, might I remind you, has a 6.75 ERA). So what do we expect from Huff, 25-28 career, including a 1-0 record for the hated Giants (last year; after he was dealt by, and then returned to, the Yankees)?

Besides, you wouldn't hit a man with glasses, right? Even one whose career ERA+ is 80, and whose career is most similar to players like Scott Schoeneweis? (Oh, and did I mention he's a lefty?)

Huff was a non-roster invitee in camp and pitched rather well (2-0, 1.32 earned-run average in six games), though after the Dodgers started Scott Baker on Thursday for triple-A Albuquerque it appeared he was lined up to make Tuesday’s start.

But the left-handed Huff threw three innings of relief in that game, and because Seattle’s lineup features star left-handed hitters Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said it was decided to go with Huff over the right-handed Baker. [...]

Huff, 30, is a seven-year veteran who last started a major league game in 2013. For his career, he is 25-28 with a 5.02 ERA, although he went 3-1 with a 1.85 ERA in 30 games with the New York Yankees last year.

Oh, and lest I forget: Huff boobs (get it?)

Does Mary Hart have season tickets right behind home plate?? I always thought it was Jeanne Zelasko. Either way I'd still be down...
