Game 55 Thread: June 2 @ Rockies, 1p

Ryu, getting hurt in his last outing (artist's rendition).

Hyun-Jin Ryu, possibly? (6-2, 2.89) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (6-3, 3.16).

Ryu might be the latest Dodger to be felled by the Conte Cholera, the term commonly used to describe the maddening parade of injured Dodgers which has coincided with the Stan Conte era (three simultaneous hamstring injuries to a nine-man starting lineup? Who the hell is leading pre-agme stretching, for pete's sake?!). Ryu's injury wasn't the result of chicken and beer, unlike some Dodgers; no, this came after a comebacker naield Ryu in the foot in his last start (a CGSHO, mind you). So Ryu may be a late scratch.

If there's any upside in projecting today's rubber match, it's that De La Rosa (winner of his last four decisions) is 0-8 against the Dodgers lifetime, with a 6.75 ERA. Ah, who am I kidding. 5p, puck drops in Game 2.

A.J. to the DL, Magill up to replace him and start.

Orel said...

Oh, and Crawford's out too!

Don Mattingly said Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw are possible pinch-hitters today.

BJ Killeen said...

Rather see Kershaw at the plate than Cruz

Steve Sax said...

Rather see Kershaw at the post-game spread than Uribe

BJ Killeen said...

Ryu scratched.

1 regular starter in the lineup. Amazing.

BJ Killeen said...

Sorry 2 with Agon.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

No you're right... Ethier is irregular

Orel said...

Wow, we're already down.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Down and out

Orel said...

Now tied! This team has GRIT

Let's just put it this way: It would be a upset if Puig isn't playing for #Dodgers tomorrow. #awholenewblue

No mercy for us. Even on a Sunday.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not watching this any more. It doesn't deserve my time.

karen said...

It's Sunday so I can't say Fuck.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig will be called up, and pull a hammy getting off the plane.

Dusty Baker said...

^ MVP comment, Karen.

Dusty Baker said...

FYI: Still watching this.

ps- Happy birthday, Spanky!

Dusty Baker said...

OK now I'm definitely out of here. 4 homers (two to Fowler) allowed by Magill.

BJ Killeen said...

Watched the end of two races, and now I'm leaving to go visit my cousin's horse farm...anything is better than watching this plane go down in flames.

Orel said...

This has to be the worst Dodgers season since we started the blog.

I can't imagine what it must be like to have to sign paychecks for these guys.

Dusty Baker said...

Aaaaaand the Astros sweep OC Angels.

At least we didn't just get swept by the Angels.

Hideo Nomo said...

Not quite a sweep. They play again tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

Ah, I see. Interesting scheduling.

Dusty Baker said...

Hah! I was just about to do the PGT with exactly what you rolled with, Nomo.

Wake up the Puig.
