Braden Looper will start today against All-Star Chad Billingsley and the Dodgers who had interest in him during the offseason. Hopefully he can show LA why they wanted him in the first place.

Follow the jump for bullpen conditions and more!

The lineup features grit on top, a lack of Hart, and Hardy gritting his teeth:

Kendall C
Counsell 2B
Braun LF
Fielder 1B
Gamel 3B
Cameron CF
Catalanotto RF
Hardy SS
Looper P

The bullpen is relatively usable tonight, if lacking its usual caffeine content:

Todd Coffey pitched one inning (15 pitches) yesterday and two (38 pitches) on Wednesday.
Trevor Hoffman pitched 1 inning (26 pitches) Wednesday night.
Mitch Stetter threw five pitches yesterday.
Seth McClung hasn't pitched since Tuesday.
Carlos Villanueva threw seven pitches last night.
Chris Smith pitched one inning (25 pitches) yesterday.
Mark DiFelice hasn't pitched since Sunday.

Friday's game thread is now open.
