  1. Charles says:

    Huff’s pitching, but he won’t have to face Jason Bartlett OR Andy Sonnanstine today. I’m going to get crazy and go with Jeff Niemann. His last few starts have been fairly solid, so maybe he’s getting into the groove.

  2. Andy Kline says:

    Evan Longoria

  3. smelpy says:

    SCHLONGORIA! he’s getting it back woooooo.

  4. JHS says:

    Jeff Niemann, for sure.

  5. MikeD says:

    Gonna go with Niemann. Kinda starting to like the big guy

  6. Justin H says:

    The Giraffe, maybe he can get the rays into the 6th inning

    I hate life!!! Give me Longo.

  12. Joe D. says:

  13. Brixology says:

    I belatedly choose Kapler. Just in case.

  14. Dirtbag Fan says:
