Game 49 Thread: May 28 @ Cubs, 5p

Good Wrigley Field Memory: James Loney hits a grand slam in NLDS Game 1, putting the Dodgers up 4-2 and shifting the game and series momentum to the Dodgers, who would eventually sweep the Cubs.

Bad Wrigley Field Memory: Chad Kreuter gets into it with a Cubs fan in 2000, starting a melee and causing suspensions and civil lawsuits.

MANNYWATCH: 31 GAMES

Randy Wolf (2-1, 3.02) vs. Randy Wells (0-1, 1.50).

COMMENTS: Let's go for more of those good memories, shall we? The Dodgers open up four games at the Friendly Confines but will miss Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano, who went apeshit yesterday after a call at the plate went the Pirates' way. Instead, Round 1 of Dodgers / Cubs features Wells, whose debut this year already includes three strong starts and a miniscule ERA, versus our king of no decisions Wolf (whose seven no-decisions is tied for the major-league lead).

Will Wells go-Far? I still wouldn't bank on it against a Dodgers offense that had 31 runs over three games at Coors Field; despite the fact that LA didn't deposit any HRs in the three games, they still were able to cash in a lot of runs playing small ball. Let's hope for more returns today.

Nic J, love the fox and the mound comment. Mind if I use that?

It reminds me of Corey Feldman, pre-drugs.

Nic j said...

come on no love for the fox and the mound? i thought it was clever.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And just like that the Dodgers are guaranteed a winning road-trip.

Nic j said...

oh ok, go for it sax it would be an honor.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry, that should be A genius (you can tell i was gearing up for "idiot")

Whoo hoo! Way to go, Tron! Nice moves, Joe!

Steve Sax said...

Nic J, if it's good enough for tobias, it's good enough for me.

I always thought Portia de Rossi was hot.

Steve Sax said...

wow, what a game!

Nic j said...

Alireza said...

Troncoso is becoming one hell of a clutch guy.

Alex Cora said...

Wow that was one heck of a game. T was nails!!! Will see everyone tomorrow - early game!
GO blue!

StolenMonkey86 said...

Dodgers Win! Troncoso did a great impression of rookie Billingsley (except for the 2 RBI single in his first AB). Lou Pinella will send Zambrano to go apeshit on Fox and Scales.

New Post-Game Thread Up Top.

I just saw this video of Josh Beckett clearly saying "God Dammit" after he threw a ball.
