Another day, another serious bout of packing, another near first pitch Gameday Thread. Feeling a good deal more optimistic today than I was at this time yesterday, when it looked like we'd probably be turning to Dan Haren to avoid the sweep. However, we got to Greinke, seriously got to the Royals bullpen, and could even cope with a Vasquez meltdown in the ninth, without too much trouble. So, instead, we turn to Dan Haren to give us a series win, and the way he has pitched of late, we should certainly be in with a chance.

Before I get to the lineup, if you're in the area of Tempe Marketplace tomorrow, and have a couple of hours to kill, you might want to head over for the Fox Sports Arizona Shake, Rattle and Vote event, designed to stuff the All-Star ballot-boxes with votes for Upton, Reynolds, etc. Cast 100 or more ballots and you get entered into raffle prize drawings throughout the evening, where you can win a lot of autographed D-backs merchandise:

Stephen Drew autographed jersey
Mark Reynolds autographed bat
Justin Upton autographed bat
Justin Upton game used bat
Dan Haren autographed ball
Chris Snyder autographed ball
Doug Davis autographed ball
Jon Rauch autographed ball
or tickets to each game in the next home stand – Rangers & Angels

They'll be showing the game on the big screen, and there will be the usual Miller drink specials at Cadillac Ranch, San Felipe’s and Dave & Busters, coupons for a free quesadilla at Maria Maria, a post-game concert by the intriguingly-named Tractor Pull Divas and the post-game show will be broadcast from there as well.
