Well, at least we don't get to face Roy Oswalt - he'll be starting for the Phillies tomorrow night, having been traded from the Astros. Though that being a bad thing may depend on your views of Tankapalooza 2010. The Pirates have already returned to their normal ways today - losing on the road to Colorado - so we won't be heading for New York in the #2 slot. But, having lost six games in a row, and having been outscored 39-16 over that time, I'm confident Arizona will be able to keep pace. The Phillies haven't lost at home in over three weeks, and the Diamondbacks haven't won on the road a) this month, and b) under Kirk Gibson.

It's the debut of Joe Saunders, so be interesting to see how he does. And, oh look - Justin Upton is back in the line-up, having apparently suffered a bout of Halladayitis yesterday. What are the odds? Limited aboutness early, due to the usual work-related things, we'll see if we can avoid the sweep. Or, from the Tankapalooza POV, complete it.
