Four-game series with the Diamondbacks kicks off tonight in true form, with Friday Night Fireworks Sponsored by Denny's, set to the music of Billy Joel! Oh, and there are these two familiar guys who used to play on the same team, now squaring off against each other. I suppose that's interesting as well.
Saturday involves the unveiling of our Jackie Robinson statue (complete with replicas given away at the Stadium); Sunday gives away a Kenta Maeda fathead, and Monday doesn't offer anything except the best starting pitcher on the Dodgers so far (statistically speaking, of course). Somewhere in there, it would be nice to end the series back above .500. But that goal seems awful slippery when playing with these 7-3 snakes.
