Gameday Thread, #116: 8/9 vs. Astros


Jordan Lyles
RHP, 1-6, 4.36


Jason Marquis
RHP, 8-6, 4.33

Right. Let's try this again, shall we?

The time is now. The Diamondbacks will not have as good a chance to pad their win total as they do for the next four three games. They are going up at home against a team currently on pace to go 54-108, who have lost 23 of their last 31 32 contests, including 14 of 16 17 on the road. Really: failure is not an option. We need to play the role of Amazonian piranhas, with the Astros playing a horse with a nosebleed, that rolled in a pool of BBQ sauce, immediately before toppling into the river. Feasting time!

I trust I make myself clear.

Good to see the A-lineup out there this evening, since Mrs. SnakePit and I will be at the park for the official unveiling of the SnakePit T-shirts. We'll be just behind the visitors' dug-out so keep an eye for us, putting the boot in on anyone trying to do the wave.
