Rubber Game Has Me Bouncing Off the Walls! 

The Padres are venturing into the unfamiliar territory here today. They have the chance to potentially win a series tonight, and against the defending NL West champs, nonetheless.

Anthony Bass will take the hill for Tim Stauffer Dustin Moseley for his first start of the season. Bass (0-1, 2.25 ERA) took the loss last Saturday in extra innings against the Dodgers.

The Diamondbacks will roll out ace Ian Kennedy (1-0, 4.05 ERA) to prevent a losing streak after Arizona lost their first game of 2012 last night.

Here are a few things I want to see tonight that I believe will help the Friars right their ship this early in the season.

Defense, Defense, Defense.

Please baby Swinging Friar in your tiny little robe, will you allow our guys to throw and catch the ball to where they intend it to be. Nick Hundley side-armed the ball into centerfield before I could even crack my beverage in the top of the first. Which leads me to my next point.
