Seriously folks, you're going to have to use that industrial-strength velcro to keep you on the edge of your seat for this particular matchup.

Seriously though, when did Kyle Lohse become a legitimate pitcher? He's had 1 season in his entire career with a sub-4 ERA, and prior to this season he has a career 4.79 ERA. But now, Lohse has impeccable control (1.9 BB9) and while his strikeout numbers aren't great, there's still a well-above 2.0 ratio there.

Cook, on the other hand, has been going kind of in the opposite direction. His strikeout numbers have never been good, but his control has dropped off mightily, basically transforming Cook to a respectable #3 to.... well, Kyle Lohse - or how Lohse used to be, anyhow.
