Game 55 Thread: June 4 vs. Braves, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (5-3, 2.95) vs. Kenshin Kawakami (0-7, 4.66).

COMMENTS: Is it premature to call Clayton Kershaw a stopper? Because of the seven games this season the Dodgers have won when he's started, six have come after a loss. Of course, yesterday's defeat to the streaking Braves wasn't too much of a surprise, given that the Dodgers had swept the last-place D'backs by a series score of 7-4.

Don't let Kawakami's 0-7 record fool you. "In his past three starts, the right-hander has completed 18 2/3 innings with a 2.41 ERA," MLB.com tells us, and with Manny off-kilter, Ethier still trying to find his rhythm and everybody but Jamey Carroll swinging toothpicks, Kawakami might feel right as rain against this poorly made-up offense.

Get ready bishes, RB to make his stadium debut for 2010 tomorrow.
Bringing RB, jr. (actually daughter #2, but she's the one who takes after me the most. . .for now; two younger ones vying for the title as well).
I'll probably send her to Los Compadres for lunch while I warm up at the Shortstop. Thank god she's 16 and can drive us into the stadium.

I'll check my ticket location and post it later. I do know I'll be in Loge 143.

Dusty Baker said...

Trying to get the fam to go tomorrow but they said they'd be too sad when they see Lima Jr throwing out the first pitch.
