Tonight's Game Is Old News

Jamie Moyer, with his start tonight, will become the oldest pitcher ever to start against the Los Angeles Dodgers, at 46 years, 199 days old. He is breaking the record of...Jamie Moyer. Moyer made his debut in 1986 (against the Phillies), which is fitting because tonight is 1980s Night at Dodger Stadium.

Eric Milton, with wins in his last two starts, will try to extend the Era of Good Feeling with his first home start as a Dodger.

Xavier Paul, who actually feared he could potentially lose his leg due to his staph infection, has resumed baseball activities and will report to Camelback Ranch next week, says Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

Here are tonight's potential winners in the Russell Martin HR contest:

cmramirez 2nd inning, 379 feet
djansson 2nd inning, 382 feet
Preston 4th inning, 351 feet
Eric Stephen
5th inning, 378 feet

Preston is going for the double, as he also won the James Loney HR contest earlier this season. That home run? Yeah, it was off Jamie Moyer.
