East-coast day game = breakfast baseball here in Arizona. I'm hoping it goes better than the last time I watched the D-backs over my coffee and cereal, as I got to "enjoy" the site of Daniel Hudson's first inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. Quite put me off my Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs, I must say. Between that and the buillpen meltdown which unfolded over dinner this evening, I'd like to thank the Diamondbacks for helping my weight-loss program on this road-trip, by making me lose my appetite. However, there seems a very good chance of this one being lost. Here's the weather forecast for NY at time of writing (midnight). It's not pretty:

No line-up at time of writing [which would be late on Friday night], but sure it'll appear in due course, if the game is on. Enright gets another stab at his first win of 2011, while Gee is even more of a rookie, having just six career starts under his belt - not much of a track record there for our hitters. Enright has done well in his career facing the Mets - unbeaten in two starts, having posted a 1.93 ERA over 14 innings. With Joe Saunders having shut-down New York's hitters for six frames yesterday, it seems the kind of line-up against whom Top Ginger could do well too.

Of course, as we saw yesterday, a good starting performance means little, when your bullpen stinks the place up, and your offense can't do anything either. I had a feeling it wasn't going to be our game, from the moment Chris Young tripled to lead off the game, and was left stranded at third. If we don't do a good deal better in both those aspects, it could be a very long day for us Diamondbacks fans - and not just because it's starting at 10 am.

[Morning update] Weather looking a bit better. Between 1-4pm NY time, the chance of rain is now showing as from 15-40%, so it's possible we can get the game in. Still no D-backs line-up I can find, through my bleary, sleep-glued eyes...]
