Sometimes, I'm glad to be otherwise engaged:
Oh, hang on: let me place an emergency phone-call to Mrs. SnakePit, and get her to record this televisual treat. Who's with me?
[Tumbleweeds roll across the SnakePit]
Thought not. Line-up and, perhaps, fractionally less sarcasm, after the jump.
- Willie Bloomquist SS
- Aaron Hill 2B
- Justin Upton RF
- Jason Kubel LF
- Paul Goldschmidt 1B
- Miguel Montero C
- Ryan Roberts 3B
- A.J. Pollock CF
- Ian Kennedy RHP
For some reason, I thought we were going to face Strasburg this trip, but I guess we are denied that particular treat. Not that Detwiler has exactly sucked, but rather him than the NL Pitcher of the Month for April. With a left-hander on the mound, Pollock gets to start in CF instead of Parra, but otherwise, it's a fairly standard line-up, with Bloomquist sitting on top of the line-up. Kennedy's last couple of starts have been kinda meh, him fighting through the bad stuff rather than using the good, but if he gets back on track, I'm optimistic the D-backs can take the game, and win back-to-back series on the road.
