(get it, "wood and peavy")
Alex Wood (0-0, -.--) vs. Jake Peavy (0-0, -.--).
The Dodgers have not allowed a run all year. This streak will undoubtedly change in today's game, the Giants' home opener and a house of horrors for the Dodgers last year (where we went 2-8). Oh yeah, and we're pitching Alex Wood, who posted a 7.13 ERA in spring training.
Oh yeah, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will likely rest Carl Crawford and Justin Turner for this game. Turner is coming off of microfracture surgery, and Crawford is as fragile as a champagne flute. Did I mention leadoff batter Chase Utley is pushing 40?
All eyes will be on Yasiel Puig, who has been torrid this season and is tied for the team lead in HR...oh wait, he's 0-for-7 lifetime against Peavy. Hmm, maybe Kenta Maeda can pinch hit?
