After snatching defeat from the jaws of a victory snatched from the jaws of defeat (I think I got that right), we go back into the gurgling vortex of offensive suck which is Petco, where fly-balls go to die. We've already seen a no-hitter (Verlander) and a combined one-hitter (Gallardo and Axford). Maybe Hudson can go better, working against a bad offense in the ultimate pitcher's park, can throw baseball's first ever -1 hitter.

On the other hand, maybe Arizona will be on the receiving end. The last two games, the opposing team has taken shutouts into the ninth, and as shoe pointed out last night, the offense has been in a real slump of late. Since the opening blowout of the Cubs series, we have scored 23 runs over seven games and never mind tacos, we haven't cracked four in any contest. Our collective line over that time: .203/.304/.373.

Kelly Johnson won't be starting until Tuesday, Cap'n Kirk giving him a couple of mental health days to try and get himself straightened out. Which puts a spoke in 'Pit Your Wits for this week, doesn't it? Ironically, just yesterday, Gibson said of Johnson's struggles, "There's only one way to get out of it. You can either run from it or you can keep battling and battling." Battling. It's vastly over-rated.
