COMMENTS: It's the last series of this regrettable 2010 season, and I, am, in misery. But sort of like Adam Levine getting abused by Anne Vyalitsyna, here I am, enjoying the fact that I'm back for at least one more GameThread. Ely, whose 2010 career trajectory matches the arc of the Dodgers' season, takes the mound to try and win the first of three games that we'd need to claw our way back to .500. Can you even believe that, after two straight postseason appearances, we're talking about holding out a glimmer of hope that we'll make it back to absolute mediocrity? Forgive me if I'm a little Kroenke. I'm going to go sit by the pool. Right, Anne?
