Open Thread: Cubs vs. Dodgers, Wednesday 6/1

Our turn:

Today's Starting Pitchers
John Koronka
J. Koronka
vs. Derek Lowe
D. Lowe
--- W-L 4-4
--- ERA 3.11
- SO 51
- BB 15
- HR 6

On paper, this is a mismatch -- and Lowe's been very good this year.

But, as the saying goes, they don't play the games on paper. After a 12-2 start, the Dodgers have gone 14-22.

As I noted in last night's game post, I saw Koronka pitch in spring training and was, frankly, quite unimpressed. But this isn't Arizona, and the Dodgers have never seen him before, and isn't it time for OUR stick figure to do something good?

Also... this is very disappointing. The first All-Star voting results have been released and not only is Neifi! not in the top five, NOMAR is leading.

What are people thinking? How can you vote for someone who cannot possibly play in the game?

I'm also disappointed in the vote totals for Derrek Lee, who ought to be the starter. He'll make the team, but let's get him voted into the starting lineup.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
