Snakes: Game 2

The Bucs send out Paul Maholm to face one of baseball's best pitchers no one knows about, Brandon Webb. Webb just seems like the kind of guy that would kill us, with a really good sinker that induces a ton of ground balls kind of like Derek Lowe, who has very good career numbers against us (as does Webb, now that I look at it). Anyways, our best hope is that Maholm proves a good foil for the lefty-heavy lineup, though having Paul on the mound means Bob Melvin will probably counter by sitting automatic out Tony Clark for Conor Jackson, who is not an automatic out. I dunno, just looking at this one from a distance, I don't see good things in store for us.
