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.

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.
