Assuming the chance of winning each game as 50/50, the odds of the Diamondbacks going 162-0 before the season started was approximately one in 5.846,006,549,323,611,672,814,739,330,865,100,000,000,000,000,000. That was then, but this is now, the odds have now shrunk all the way down to an easily-attainable one in 2,923,003,274,661,805,836,407,369,665,432,600,000,000,000,000,000. Sounds like a sure thing, and absolutely no pressure on Huddy to ensure our seventh consecutive victory over San Francisco.

Line-up and stuff after the jump, hotclaws will be bringing us our first guest recap of the season, so there'll be tea and crumpets involved [hey, I'm a Brit, I can say these edgy things...]

  1. Ryan Roberts, 3B
  2. Aaron Hill, 2B
  3. Justin Upton, RF
  4. Miguel Montero, C
  5. Chris Young, CF
  6. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
  7. Jason Kubel, LF
  8. John McDonald, SS
  9. Daniel Hudson, P

In true Gibby style, things get shaken up dramatically. #7 and #8 hitters in yesterday's line-up? They can be found occupying the top two spots of the order this afternoon. I think Upton and Montero are the only two occupying the same spots on the order. I think that's likely to be the credo this year, as we saw yesterday, CY hitting second when he hadn't appeared there all spring. Don't get comfortable at any spot in the line-up, because you probably won't be there tomorrow. Of course, we are facing a southpaw this afternoon, which does make a difference.

Trvia for the day: after yesterday's bomb, Chris Young needs two home-runs to tie Mark Reynolds for third on the team's all-time list. No prizes for guessing who the leader is - but who's #2?
