Oh, look: we're playing a team who actually have a worse record than the Diamondbacks! They've lost eight straight at home! And they just fired their manager, hours before today's game! Having gift-wrapped the series to the Giants, now it's time for some payback perhaps; who said it was more blessed to give than to receive?

On the other hand, for the second game in a row, we're facing a rookie phenom with one major-league start under his belt. In this case, Paul Maholm, who pitched eight shutout innings in his debut [okay, against the Brewers, but still...] At least we're putting out a relatively young team, with Cintron, Terrero and Jackson all getting to start. Troy Glaus is back in the lineup; Clark, Counsell and Green sit against the leftie starter.

Will be flitting around, multi-tasking and multi-mediaing: GameCast in here, radio in the garage, and TV in the living-room and bedroom, so whichever happens to be closest.
