Just for fun, let's consider last night's atrocious loss a fluke, but let's not consider any of our woodshed-style beatings of Justin Verlander a fluke. Then again, it's possible this offense only fires on all cylinders when facing Cy Young contenders, former Cy Young winners, and the Texas Rangers bullpen. Will we ever really know for sure? Not likely. But one thing we know for sure is there is a game today, and these are the starting lineups:
