- It appears San Diego will be starting Josh Geer (NR) during this afternoon’s game. Walter Silva had originally been scheduled to start, but he is likely headed to the DL.
- Charlie Manuel’s lineup has four consecutive lefties in it: Matt Stairs is starting for Jayson Werth in right, batting in the six spot
- Jimmy Rollins has the day off. Eric Bruntlett will take his place.
- I won’t be able to watch this game today. Maybe it’s for the best. But I’ll be following it, and regardless of where I am I will dig a hole for my head if Park allows another first inning homer. Or any homer in general.
