Here’s the slump-busting lineup for today. Trying a little something new again.
Martin, C (first time above the eighth spot)
Hopefully Sele will help get us out of this funk. He seems to have found a home at Dodger Stadium, as his 2.30 career ERA here (16 ER/62.2 IP) is the sixth-lowest in the Majors since he broke into the bigs in 1993 behind Adam Eaton (1.43), Scott Radinsky (1.79), Paul Quantrill (1.92), Curt Schilling (1.94) and Randy Johnson (2.21) among pitchers with at least 60 innings.
His success at home should not come as a surprise, as his lifetime home record is 82-51 with a 4.20 ERA compared to 61-56 with a 4.98 ERA on the road.
