If Marlon Anderson starts once, it's a fluke. If he starts twice, it's a trend. I don't like this trend. Has Ethier fallen that far in Grady's eyes? Olmedo pinch hit for him yesterday, and this is the second time he's sat in the last three days.

Eric Stults gets his first career start primarily due to process of elimination. Please, get well soon Chad.

Since Philadelphia and San Diego lost yesterday, the magic numbers is down to 18 over Philly.
