The Dodgers enter a pivotal six game stretch against the Padres and Diamonbacks tonight. If the Dodgers manage to sweep the both series, it's time to start counting our chickens, if they get swept, the race becomes a lot more interested. Any other result, I maintain my quiet confidence.

Stauffer hasn't pitched this year (which breaks my game thread generator), but in his 14 starts last year, he was pretty bad, compiling a 5.33 ERA at Petco and making acquiring Chan Ho Park seem like a reasonable idea. Sounds like a good way to keep the good vibes flowing.
