This is Edinson's penultimate start before the All-Star Game, although his start pattern doesn't align perfectly with that game. Given tomorrow's day off, Volquez's next scheduled start should be Saturday -- although Dusty could move him up a day should he be named the starter.

None of that matters if Edinson doesn't have a great start today. He is slipping of late, falling behind Lincecum in strikeouts, and he needs to give Clint Hurdle a reason to pick him over the Giants' ace.
