Just tossing this up quickly before I leave. David Wells hasn't actually lost since the Padres dumped him - he's gone 3-0 for the Dodgers, albeit with a not-exactly amazing 4.82 ERA in those five outings. I think the wheels are finally about to come off Mr. Wells' buffet-cart, as he faces Brandon Webb and the unstoppable behemoth which has been the Arizona Diamondbacks of late.

Okay, Webb has perhaps not quite been unstoppable recently - a 5.46 ERA in his last five games - but you get the idea. Win tonight, take the series, and go for the sweep tomorrow, in front of a packed crowd including multiple SnakePitters. Sounds like a plan to me. Comments to follow, in my case, from the Paper Heart.
