Here’s hoping Zack Greinke doesn’t Labor today.

I’m sorry.

Greinke is taking the hill against his former team (which feels weird to type) in Anaheim. These are two teams going in opposite directions. The Dodgers are, at present, eight games up in the NL West and the Angels are 2 1/2 games out of the second wild card spot after being near the top of the AL West for most of the season.

Yasmani Grandal is in a major slump. It’d probably be best if he were to sit for a couple weeks to get him ready for the postseason. Him trying to play through it probably won’t help matters. A.J. Ellis and Austin Barnes are plenty capable of handling the position.

Hence the Corey Seager start today.

Pencil him in for four innings.

A lot of things could happen.

And, in case you missed it.
