Randy Wolf (1-1, 3.65) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (0-1, 9.64).
COMMENTS: Coming off a series sweep of the Giants and a five-game winning streak, and facing a .500 team in the mediocre NL West, I can safely predict that there will be lots of Dodgers fireworks tonight. In fact, it should be an extremely explosive night at the Ravine, what with De La Rosa (who went 4 2/3 against the Phillies last week, giving up five runs and six hits) on the mound for Colorado, and the Dodgers left standing as the last team to have not lost a home game this year.
For the Dodgers, we'll have to see which Randy Wolf takes the mound tonight. Will it be the Wolf from his first start of the year, lasting just over five innings and giving up 4ER and 6H to the Padres in the loss? Or the Wolf who lasted seven innings against the Snakes, giving up only 1 ER and 2H in the win? Will Wolf straddle the line, in discord and rhyme? And catch my breathing, even closer behind? Do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do do do do?
SoSG Steve Sax will be at the game tonight, so please please tell me now if you'll be there too by commenting in this thread. I'll be down on the field level, third base side, so tell me if there's something I should say that would make you come my way. It may be tough to break away as nightfall covers me, but you know the plans I'm making.
(Yes, I know we've used this riff before. We're no, no, notorious, notorious for stuff like this, being wild boys and all. Would someone please explain, the reason for this strange behaviour?)
