I predict for this series that we will have at least one, "Houston, We Have A Problem" recap headline over the three days... It's nicely all-purpose, and can be used for just about any kind of situation. Hopefully, it will be Houston who will be having a problem with Daniel Hudson tonight, as he steps up to the mound for the opening game, as we try to push ever closer to the division-leading Giants.

All told, I would have to say this is probably the Diamondbacks' best line-up. I can't find anything wrong with it at all. There's a nice mix of speed and power, and defensively it's about as good as we can get. I'd like to see more of this, but it seems unlikely. In the 50 games we've played to date, we have used 49 different line-ups, including the pitcher - 41 excluding him. This will be the fourth occasion this particular line-up, 1-8, has taken the field, which is tied for the most of any card.

Crap, just realized it's a 5pm start, not 5:40. Postwards!
