Game 158 Thread: Sept 26 vs. Rockies, 7.10p

Dodgers start Derek Lowe, RHP (12-13, 3.93) vs. Josh Fogg, RHP (9-9, 4.99).

Dodgers: 80-77 (4th place NL West, 8.0 GB, L1)
Rockies: 85-72 (3rd place NL West, 3.0 GB; T-2nd place WC, 1.0 GB; W9)

From Dodgers.com, the scouting report on the starters:

Dodgers: Lowe had a day-game nightmare at Coors Field that included a six-run second inning and he was removed after walking the first two batters of the fourth inning, giving him more walks (five) than innings pitched. Whether it's the groin/hip injury or bruised hand or lack of run support, this just hasn't been his year. He'll probably make this start for a chance to finish the season at .500, regardless of its significance in the race.

Rockies: Fogg gave up mostly soft hits while going five innings in the Rockies' 6-5 victory over the Dodgers at Coors Field on Wednesday night. Fogg, however, is winless in his last seven starts against the Dodgers.

COMMENTS: Plaschke publishes a stupid rant, and Grady reads it. Result: tonight's lineup--no Kemp in sight. Perhaps Kemp is too busy massaging Jeff Kent's sore leg as Kent opines about proper baserunning techniques?

Slappy, CF
Hu, SS
Young, LF
Loney, 1B
LaRoche, 3B
Ethier, RF
Moeller, C
Valdez, 2B
Lowe, P

F' you, Plaschke, you hack.

UPDATE: If the Dodgers win all the rest of their games and the Rockies lose all the rest of theirs, we could end the season tied for third place. Uh, yeah.

You think Plaschke is bad, try listening to TJ Simers on KLAC in the morning just shredding the Dodgers while praising the F'n Angels.

Steve,
You'll be happier if you leave that pathetic sinking ship and come back to the Yankees.

What, and leave this fun? No, I'm sticking with the Dodgers, thanks. Too much drama to leave now.
