Ah, no matter how bad things get - and last night was so very, very bad - seeing that picture just makes everything all right with the world again. I might just spend the entire game gazing lovingly at it. Could well be the best option, though it's hard to imagine how things could be as bad as last night - Clefo, to whom I just gave tickets, will certainly be hoping so.

  1. Willie Bloomquist SS
  2. Ryan Roberts 3B
  3. Justin Upton RF
  4. Jason Kubel LF
  5. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  6. Aaron Hill 2B
  7. Gerardo Parra CF
  8. Henry Blanco C
  9. Joe Saunders.P
