Preseason Game 3 Thread: March 7 @ A's, 12n

Aaron Harang takes the hill for the first time in a Dodgers uniform, but we shouldn't be expecting much; he's only had a spring training ERA south of 3.00 once in the last five seasons (four with the Reds, then last year with the Padres). But according to John Soohoo (whose image we've swiped here), he may have lost that goofy rodent on his chin that MLB.com's Gameday says he's got! So there's that.

The A's are 4-2 already this spring, playing as many split-squad games as mitosis would physically allow. Today, they start a guy from Berkeley who has a 9.00 ERA this spring. Can the Dodgers corner Tyson?

But...but...no Manny, apparently.

WHAT YOU 'FRAID OF MANNY?!

Hideo Nomo said...

Just noticed how scrubby the lineup is. Maybe we'll win!

Spank said...

Meh. I forgot we have a Hairston on the team.

Franklin Stubbs said...

The B team leaves something to be desired offensively.

Hideo Nomo said...

"Cleanup hitter James Loney" kinda says it all.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, there we got some back!

Do they go extras?

Nope!

Franklin Stubbs said...

It appears not.

There's no tying in baseball!
