Game Thread: 04/7 Padres vs. Dodgers

New, 623 comments

Another day, another game. We lost a tough one last night in our second try against the Dodgers, putting us at 0-2 to start the season. The good thing is our boys still have two games left in the series to redeem themselves and get the split.

Tonight we'll see lefty Chris Capuano make his Dodgers debut on the mound. He had a good spring, but as we all know, Spring stats don't really mean much once the season starts. With Ted Lilly landing himself on the DL, Capuano moved from the fifth spot in the Dodgers' rotation to the third, and tonight he will try to show that he earned it.

Dustin Moseley also pitched strongly this Spring. And judging from the offensive showing these last two nights, we're really gonna need him to carry that over. He worked a lot on his pitching, and particularly his changeup, in the offseason. Tonight we'll have our first chance to see that hard work pay off. Moseley is no stranger to a quiet offense, having had the worst run support average in the league last season, but hopefully he can pitch strongly enough and our hitters can string something together tonight.

I'll be making my 2012 Petco Park debut tonight. I know, I'm two days late. But that just makes me even more excited to get back there and watch my boys get that W. I will do everything I possibly can to help them, which means cheering my ass off and trying to quiet the Dodger fans. Hopefully that works.

GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!! BEAT LA!!
