No, game previews aren't back, at least not that I promise to always have them up. But they'll make appearances here and there. Lou changes up the lineup a bit tonight giving Colvin, Baker and Hill the starts and sitting Soriano, Fontenot and Soto. It looks like Xavier Nady will get a start in the outfield tomorrow as well against Homer Bailey. I assume Fukudome would sit, but Lou also said Nady will play left field at first, so I guess we'll find out tomorrow. Carlos Zambrano and Tom Gorzelanny have been flipped for the weekend series with Z going Saturday and Gorz being pushed to Sunday. Ted Lilly has also been pushed back in his rehab start in Iowa with a stiff back...he'll go on Sunday now.
A win sure would be nice tonight.
