Gameday Thread, #153: 9/18 vs. Padres


Joe Saunders
LHP, 11-12, 3.83


Aaron Harang
RHP, 13-6, 3.85

OMG. The Diamondbacks teeter on the edge of elimination from the post-season this afternoon, with one more defeat surely likely to end their year in an meltdown of epic propor... Or not. I really shouldn't have to say this, but we are still five games up with just ten to play, folks, and utterly in the driving seat. A win this afternoon would be helpful, but even if it proves otherwise, it's our final road-game of the season, and it's back to Chase the rest of the way, where our offense's OPS is almost a hundred points better. So, don't sweat it folks.

Should be dbacks4life on the guest recap, but haven't heard a confirmation. If you're about, pop in to the comments and let us know!

Brewers cruising, Giants up in their game as well. But remember, as someone older and wiser said, "We have to resist it. Do whatever you have to. Cross your fingers. Say a prayer. Think of a basket of kittens. But do not give in to the fear..." That's my sig until we clinch.
