Josh Towers (0-7, 10.09 ERA) vs. Casey Fossum (1-1, 5.36 ERA). 1:15 PM EST start.
Towers, much to the chagrin of many, will make his eighth start of the season today. With Chacin and Burnett on the DL and few suitable replacements on the roster, I'm not as opposed to this as I was only a week ago. In fact, I expect Towers to pitch relatively well today, because the fact that he'll pitch on the road in front of relatively few people should bode very well for him. Bold prediction: Towers will break out of his losing funk this afternoon against Tampa Bay.
