Battle To Decide The Worst Team The Last Two Years

The last placed rider in a bike race is the Lantern Rouge

San Jose and Colorado are currently ties with the lowest pts/game average since the start of the 2014 season.  So the loser of this game will really be the worst team in the league the last two seasons.  So, hey, something to play for!  Game time tomorrow is 9pm MDT and the game is on UniMas!, channel 648 on Comcast HD.  Since Richard and 'Celo won't be doing the TV broadcast they'll be doing the radio call live from the Blake Street Tavern as part of the C38 watch party.

Injury Report:
OUT: D James Riley (concussion); M Lucas Pittinari (hamstring); F Luis Solignac (hamstring)
QUESTIONABLE: D Joseph Greenspan (back)

SUSPENDED: D Axel Sjoberg (red card against Columbus)
ONE YELLOW FROM SUSPENSION: D Axel Sjoberg (3 games left for good behavior reduction); D Jared Watts M Sam Cronin; M Lucas Pittinari (3 games left for good behavior reduction)
TWO YELLOWS FROM SUSPENSION: D Bobby Burling; D Drew Moor; D James Riley; F Kevin Doyle

I have not heard an update on Maynor Figueroa and if he has has paperwork yet.  San Jose iss down at least three players to injury or suspension so the teams are at roughly equal footing.  My buess at our XI: 

Obviously this assumes Figueroa is eligible to play.  If not we could see Harrington or Burch in his place.  Otherwise I expect the lineup to be pretty similar to last week, sadly.

Strategic Consideration: Get a lead and then hold onto it.

Prediction: 1-1 draw, goal by Doyle.  Neither of these teams can win anything so a draw seems the obvious choice.
