I'm not sure who's favored by the 14-hour inter-game rest period, but my gut says the guys sleeping in their own beds at night have a slight edge.
As happy as I am with Sele this year, it's not fun having to rely on him to change Dodger fortunes while staring down the barrel of the A's nine-game winning streak. Wrong place, wrong time. I get the feeling that we'll need some serious hitting to win this one.
That might be possible with Blanton. We'll see.
The Pitching Match-up:
Aaron Sele (RHP, Dodgers) vs. Joe Blanton (RHP, Athletics)
