Vazquez (1-1, 3.86)         Pineiro (2-1, 3.96)

On the one hand, Joel might have some difficulty keeping the ball on the ground against a team with the fourth-lowest GB/FB ratio in baseball. On the other, he's already done it against three other incredibly FB-prone lineups, so why shouldn't it continue?

Friendly notice: Adrian Beltre is 10-20 against Vazquez for his career with three doubles and a homer. Richie Sexson is 7-17. Everyone else either hasn't faced him or sucked when they did. So that's something.
