dodger_stadium_2013_150x150If you scroll down to the bottom of this post, or click on the tab at the top of the page, you’ll see the daily bullpen pitch tracker. What you’ll see is one of the added benefits of the outstanding starts that Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw, & Ricky Nolasco have tossed out over the last three days: a nearly entirely fully-rested bullpen.

Ronald Belisario, J.P. Howell, Brandon League, Paco Rodriguez, & Chris Withrow have all had three full days off; Carlos Marmol has had four. The only concern, as usual, is that Kenley Jansen has gone three times in four days and could be needed again, though at least he had three full days off prior to that. Still, the point is that the bullpen is in fantastic shape right now, and they have the rotation to thank for that.

Hyun-jin Ryu just might be able to keep that run of great starting pitching going, since he’s gone at least seven innings in each of his last three starts.

Sadly, we’ve seen the last of Vin Scully on television this weekend, as this game is the national FOX broadcast. However, this matchup has such national interest that unless you live in small pockets around Baltimore, Oakland, Detroit, Kansas City, & New York (and even barely then for the Mets) you’ll be getting the game — just look at the broadcast map.
