Game 112 Thread: August 6 @ D'backs, 5p

Nathan Eovaldi (0-0, -.--) vs. Joe Saunders (8-8, 3.56).

Welcome to the bigs, Antonio Vivaldi!

"Not me, I'm dead!"


Whoops! I've conflated my Valdis! Welcome to the bigs, Nathan Eovaldi!

Tony Jackson called it on Tuesday: today Dodger fans will get a look at the 21-year-old Eovaldi, who is 6-5 with a 2.62 ERA at Double-A Chattanooga. One of the few perks of a losing season, I guess — come see the kids!

Eovaldi: Fernando Gutierrez; Vivaldi: Fran├žois Morellon La Cave

Ten badges? Someone has no life.

So, MLASC, who do you think Buster's talking about?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm trying to think of a player who freakishly grew in mass.

David Ortiz? Ryan Howard? Dwight Howard?

Steve Sax said...

Orel: I don't think that Le Cave picture is really a photo. Are you sure you didn't mix up the credit?

Josh S. said...

There goes the no-hitter.

Eo is no captain.

Eovaldi has more hits than Velez.

Tony Jackson is becoming Dylan Hernandez-esque in his crusade against bunting.

Apparently no separation or dislocation to Dee's shoulder.

Great at bat for Miles.

Orel said...

Wow — non-tall Chris Young almost tied it up against Guerrier. A few feet away from a two-run HR.

Orel said...

Um, Trayvon Robinson just homered.

Steve Sax said...

Thanks for the PGT Orel!
