Come 8 p.m., Poco (the cat) and I will be celebrating the hourlong show in fine viewer fashion: We'll unplug the phone, call a truce on the remote control, set two pillows and two bowls of popcorn on the floor--and none of that low-fat business, either.

Heading into the Dodgers' series opener against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park on Tuesday, Jansen has pitched three times.
