Danny Salazar has some big shoes to fill coming into tonight's game. Between Kluber's 14Ks and Cookie's 12K Maddux, I'm not sure Danny can best them. Guess he'll just have to throw a perfect game. Game on, Salad Czar!

Oh, by the way, Oakland already lost! But do not look at the starting lineup for the Angels tonight. Just don't.
