Our dude Cashy is back and ready to whack some snakes tonight with his four-seamer. So excited to have him back in the mix. Between Cash, TyTy, Odes, IPK, and Stultsy lately; all our opponents should be shaking in their cleats.

Now if our offense could get back on track that'd be just rad. Randy Jones was absolutely steamed on the postgame show last night, so I'd love for the team to rack up some hits and get their baserunning back on point and turn all of that into some runs so RJ will have something good to talk about.

Now while you're waiting for the game to start, or during the commercial breaks tonight, make sure to check out all the fantastic fanposts that have been written and entered into our fanpost contest! The link on the right of this page will lead you to all the fanposts that are up for the prizes, so make sure to check them out and give them the recs they deserve! And you still have a little time to enter if you haven't already. I'm cutting you guys off at midnight (Pacific time) tonight, so get them up before then if you want a chance at the Cashner giveaway jersey or some baseball cards and your very own GLB sticker! If you don't care about the prizes and just want to write about baseball (which would be awesome), then continue to give the fanpost section your love after midnight tonight.

Alright, back to tonight's game. Here's how our boys will line up against the lefty Nuno tonight.
