Yesterday's game, um, sucked. So today we turn to the littlest cowboy, Josh Tomlin, to right the ship against the (at least previously) dreadful defending NL champs. Tomlin comes into today's game with an absurd 0.00 ERA - since his first scheduled start was washed away in the inclement weather of the first week. He'll face Mets RHP Matt Harvey, who has struggled a bit to start the season. Without Bartolo Colon on the mound and Asdrubal Cabrera the only LGFT on the field today, it's safe to wipe away any feelings of nostalgia that may have clouded your rooting interests yesterday. Let's Go Tribe!
