The Dodgers and Padres are playing a day game, a 12:35pm start, at Petco Park this afternoon, commonly referred to as a "Businessman's Special." Seems to me it's awfully difficult to work while sitting at a baseball game though.
Clayton Kershaw, who used a tip from Derek Lowe to prepare for his starts, makes his 2009 debut. Also making his debut of sorts is Blake DeWitt, who will play SS for the first time in his career.
Former Giant Kevin Correia will pitch for the Padres.
Don't forget to get your guesses in for today's game score and winning pitcher. Entries must be received by 12:35pm.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the Angels and the family of Nick Adenhart, who was killed in a hit and run accident overnight in Fullerton. More coverage is over at Halos Heaven. It's a sad day for baseball.
