Game 90 Thread: July 10 @ D'backs, 6:30p




Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3, 2.82 ERA) vs. Tyler Skaggs (2-1, 3.65 ERA)

I'm sure Tyler Skaggs is a nice man, but his name is just too, well, Skaggy not to mock in this space. Especially as giddy as we are, on the precipice of getting back to .500 for the first time since the end of April. Having already locked down another series win, the Dodgers behind Ryu will try for the series sweep and a chance to move within 1.5 games of the NL West lead. This would be great momentum coming into the final home stand against the Rockies before the All-Star Game break.

One thing I'll be looking for is to see Crawford get back to his pre-DL form, given that the Kemp news seems to be getting worse (irritated AC joint). For the record, Kemp has thus far expressed no irritation toward SoSG AC.

In other news, Ted Lilly has asked Donnie to consider using him out of the pen, and not as a starter. Waaaaaay ahead of you on that one, Theodore.

Happy thought for the day: the Gnats have a worse record than the Cubs!

Above all else:  VOTE PUIG!

UPDATE: Looks like we'll have to wait longer to see about Crawford. He is not in the lineup tonight. Ethier, Puig, and Van Slyke will round out the outfield.

There's no place like home
With your family around you you're never alone
When ya know that your loved
You don't need to roam
Cause there's no place like home

Time's are changing everyday
We won't get by with the same old ways
No-oooo pulling together will make it right
With help from are friends I know we can right

Cause there's no place like home
With your family around you you're never alone
When you know that your loved
You don't need to roam
Cause there ain't no place like
Better believe it
I said their no place like home
"I mean no place child" .
