Post-Game 2 Thread: Chad in Charge

DODGERS 6, PADRES 0

Yeah, so about those spring training stats.... Chad Billingsley was magnificent, even if he was facing the lowly Padres (if a team can be called lowly after two games, it's the Padres). TT went 8 1/3, allowing only three hits and striking out 11 (!). Andre Ethier started his campaign for a long-term contract, lighting up the lefty Cory Luebke for a double, a triple and four (!) RBIs. Matt Kemp chipped in with two hits, a ribbie and stolen base #1, and Juan Rivera had the other RBI.

The only downsides? Dee Gordon struck out two more times and Juan Uribe was Juan Uribe. (In other words, he went 0 for 4.)

5:35 p.m. start tomorrow — join us as the Dodgers look to guarantee a series win!

Who needs to pay a #2 starter $20 million a year when you get production like this?

Dusty Baker said...

Does the start time mean that it's a nationally televised game? Or is San Diego just fucked up?

Dusty Baker said...

Another round of applause for Bills, ladies and gentlemen! Well done, lad.

Orel said...

And well done, LAD!

Fernie V said...

Holy shit, I got a text before game, Bills breakout season.

Orel said...

Both teams' sites indicate local broadcasts. Therefore, San Diego is just fucked up.

Steve Sax said...

Stay classy, Orel.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Is there a special event following the game? If not, then it's really fucked up.

Think Loney could play third base?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't think lefties can play third.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...
