San Francisco Giants (6-9) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (10-4) - 3:45PM Est.
Seeing as how the theme of the day here at FanHouse is new rivalries to replace the Yankees/Red Sox one we’ve all been force fed for years (Hey, did you know that the Yankees and Red Sox are playing again today? And that’s it’s on ESPN? It’s only like the 18th time already this season! Don’t miss it!) I’d like to dedicate today’s On Deck to our friends on the left coast.

I’ll start if off with the only day game on the slate today, as the unstoppable force that is the Arizona Diamondbacks look to bury the San Francisco Giants a little deeper in the NL West. It’s also the only game on today’s docket that features two Cy Young Award winners, though both pitchers are headed in completely opposite directions. Brandon Webb starts for Arizona tonight, and he’s looking to get off to the first 4-0 start of his career. Webb is coming off another stellar performance against the Rockies and is 3-0 with a 2.14 ERA this season. He’s also 4-0 with a 2.96 ERA against the Giants since 2006. The Giants will counter with Barry Zito’s ghost, and though Barry pitched well against the Cardinals in his last start, he’s still 0-3 and trying to avoid the first 0-4 start in his career. Zito has a record of 2-3 in his career against the Diamondbacks, but his ERA of 2.73 indicates he hasn’t gotten much support from his teammates in those starts. If he doesn’t show up tonight, don’t be surprised if he’s drowned in McCovey Cove after the game.Continue Reading
