A late afternoon finale

In what's probably the weirdest starting time of the year, the Pirates and D'Backs are going at it at 3:40 today. Jeff Karstens gets his second start in black and gold and he's facing off against Randy Johnson, who was involved in a rather well publicized tiff with Obi-Wan Mientkiewicz a few weeks back. The Karstens start and the Johnson subplot with the possibility of a brawl is enough to make me want to try and leave work early to catch the end of this game.
