I'm sick of this whole losing thing. It's about time for a win. Tonight's pitching matchup favors the Rockies...I think.

James McDonald failed to qualify for the win against us Sunday despite allowing no runs. He has been a victim of wildness so far, and he was being tailored as a relief pitcher until the last couple weeks of spring. Patience will help out tonight - luckily that's one strangth of the offense. He'll be facing a lineup that is missing Ian Stewart, Ryan Spilborghs and Chris Iannetta.

Ubaldo Jimenez has suffered from control problems in his last two starts, first due to cold, and second due to mechanical problems. It should be warm enough tonight, and the mechanical glitch is suppsedly fixed, so hopefully we'll see a better Hair-B-There tonight. He is 4-1 in his career vs LA, but that is with a 6.57 ERA. Orlando Hudson, Casey Blake, Matt Kemp, Russell Martin and Rafael Furcal all have at least a .333 career average against Jimenez.
