Gameday Thread, #91: 7/17 vs. Padres


Rodrigo Lopez
RHP, 5-7, 4.40


Clayton Richard
LHP, 6-4, 3.33

Do we think the Diamondbacks will finally show up after the All-Star break today? Because they sure as hell didn't make an appearance yesterday, in the abomination which was the 12-1 loss. With that, we'll move rapidly on - at least tonight's game has a semi-civilized starting hour, so even if the agony is as prolonged as it was last night, I should still have some time to enjoy the evening.

Line-up and stuff after the jump.

  1. Chris Young CF
  2. Kelly Johnson 2B
  3. Justin Upton RF
  4. Mark Reynolds 3B
  5. Adam LaRoche !B
  6. Rusty Ryal LF
  7. Stephen Drew SS
  8. Chris Snyder C
  9. Rodrigo Lopez P

We've never actually faced Richard before, but he is a left-hander, so Gerardo Parra gets to sit on the bench, with Ryal an interesting choice to replace him in left-field. Montero similarly sits this one out, which makes sense given his .222/.273/.333 line against lefties this year. Mrs. SnakePit is going to be late picking me up from work, so I'll be there for the first couple of innings, before we head off, perhaps to forage for dinner. Hopefully, it'll be a game worthy of less gloomy comments than last night.
