Scott Kazmir (1-0, 0.00) vs. Johnny Cueto (1-0, 1.29).
The two NL West heavyweights go at it for a fourth and final time this series, with new #2s on the mound for each team. Kazmir signed with the Dodgers this offseason for $48M / 3 years. Cueto signed with the Giants this offseason for $130M / 6 years. Is Cueto worth twice the number of years, and roughly 3x the number of dollars? Let's see if today's start gives any indication on the relative worth of these disparate investments.
We know one guy who will come ready to play: Charlie Culberson. I'm still enjoying watching his highlights from Saturday's game, and he understood the importance of the rivalry in his post-game thoughts, especially given he started his major league career with San Francisco. Let's do it for Charlie and get a series split today, boys!
