Open Thread: Game 17 - vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

Unfortunately for Dodger fans, Baseball Prospectus (a pay site, and worth it) points out that the .432 batting average on balls in play that Orlando Hernandez has given up this year is so high that not even Arizona's horrible defense can explain it. Expect his luck (and the defense, for that matter) to improve. Hopefully that won't start tonight. We need all the offensive luck we can get.
