Delwyn Young, one of the most talkative and funniest guys on the team, will be chatting with all of you today at 2 p.m. PT. As some of you know, during the last web chat with Matt Kemp, DY was in the room and cracking jokes the whole time, so someone asked if he would chat the next time around…voila. Check in with him later today here.
We could really use a win in the finale tonight, which will be on ESPN. I read somewhere today that we only play one team that’s above .500 before June 24 and that’s a rematch with the Cubs at home. This would certainly be a good time to go on a little run.
We’ll get in about 4 a.m., I’d imagine, but get right back after it tomorrow night when the homestand starts, so hopefully some of you will make it out for a game. Or, at the very least, you’ll be online Tuesday to chat with Joe Beimel at 2 p.m.
Here’s the lineup for tonight…DY gets a rare start against Johan Santana, the fifth time we’ve faced a former Cy Young Award winner this year.
