Steel yourselves.

Okay. We know what today is. It’s a Vince Velasquez start. Steel yourselves. Hope for the best, but expect less than that.

But there is a silver lining to every VV start. This could be the start where he figures it all out. I’m looking forward to the day that happens, because I’ll get to photoshop a cartoon lightbulb above his head.

Today's Lineups

Charlie Blackmon - CF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Ian Desmond - LF Aaron Altherr - LF
Nolan Arenado - 3B Odubel Herrera - CF
Carlos Gonzalez - RF Maikel Franco - 3B
Mark Reynolds - 1B Michael Saunders - RF
Trevor Story - SS Tommy Joseph - 1B
Alexi Amarista - 2B Cameron Rupp - C
Ryan Hanigan - C Freddy Galvis - SS
Tyler Anderson - LHP Vince Velasquez - RHP

Maikel Franco is back! So either he and Pete Mackanin talked, or Mackanin gave up and just put him back into the lineup. I honestly have no idea which one is more likely.
