I just woke up, rubbed my eyes, and started freaking out because I was supposed to have a game preview up for you wonderful folks like two hours ago. Sorry, lovers; I'll try to get a little previewy here to make up for it a smidge.

So, these Friars of ours sure are liking to lose lately, huh? I was out being irresponsible last night, but D'lighter's recap tells me all I missed out on was some heartache. "P typ." You know, if they lose today, the Diamondbacks will skip them in the standings and relegate them to the cellar, a place where half of the fanbase already thinks they are anyway.

It's up to Odi to right the ship. That's what some people are calling Odrisamer Despaigne, if you aren't hip to the new jazz. Dude has yet to give up a run in the majors. Like, ever. Okay, that only accounts for one start, but still. He'll be countered by Mike Bolsinger, who has given up runs. Pffft, way to let people touch the plate, guy. Also, his name sounds like the description of someone who belts out ditties exclusively for testicles.
