Game 93 Thread: July 13 vs. Rockies, 4.15p

Zack Greinke (7-2, 3.91) vs. Tyler Chatwood (5-2, 2.74).

When these two guys squared off earlier this month, Greinke was wobbly but Chatwood was worse, and the Dodgers' offensive explosion (four HRs) gave us a 10-8 win.

This time, we aren't in Coors Field; Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, and Yasiel Puig may all be out; and the Dodgers' 3-0 loss last night dropped us to a woeful .800 clip over our last 20 games.

Wait a minute, .800 ain't all that bad! Maybe the thought that Chatwood's safe isn't accurate?

(Holy smokes, that was a horrible GT theme, particularly for a nationally-televised game and the night of the "42" double-feature promotion. It's like I've got a tiny head today, or something.)

"Nothing really significant" found in Carl Crawford's MRI exam, according to Don Mattingly.

MR.F said...

That was from DH.

Steve Sax said...

What about partially significant?

Schumaker(RF)
MEllis
Gonzales
Ramirez
Ethier
AEllis
Hairston (LF)
Uribe
Greinke

Neeebs said...

This is the type of lineup that got us in trouble.

Steve Sax said...

Last four initials in our lineup spell A HUG

Which is what I'm going to need after this beat-down

Neeebs said...

Double and a HBP. Nice start.

Hideo Nomo said...

Who's calling the game with EK?

Neeebs said...

Only one? Oh boy.

Dusty Baker said...

On the reserve level, Vinny! #42

Fred's Brim said...

I am really scared of losing three in a row before the all star break

Fred's Brim said...

I hope we can get a win today to take the pressure off (of me)

Fred's Brim said...

Steiner busy cursing us:
"meanwhile the Rockies haven't even gotten a ball out of the infield yet"

BJ Killeen said...

Forget the game, lets ask stupid questions!

BJ Killeen said...

@nomo Don Sutton's kid.

Fred's Brim said...

"and another good inning for Grienke who's been nearly perfect through three"

Fred's Brim said...

good job, Marcus

Steve Sax said...

The "Matt Harvey vs. Clayton Kershaw starting the ASG" debate. Yawn.

Clayton's already deferred, so let it go, guys

Steve Sax said...

one-out walk

Dusty Baker said...

I can see the Goodyear Blimp. And it says "Stubbs Is a Pimp".

Steve Sax said...

Hideo Nomo said...

For anyone that cares, Pacific Rim gets the Nomo seal of approval.

Did everyone that worked on the film tell their friends they got the Rim job?

Steve Sax said...

Paul said...

Dusty in section 42 on a day they play the Beasties. We can't lose this one.

Steve Sax said...

horrible K there Ethier

Orel said...

Jim Joyce has that distinctive strike call.

Fred's Brim said...

too much devil jumping so far

Orel said...

Digital abuse! Is that like smashing your hand with a hammer?

Fred's Brim said...

Scout, go to hell: "That was pitch number 45 for Zack Greinke; his effectiveness may start slipping, as he holds opposing hitters to a .265 average in the first 45 pitches but they hit .299 off him after that."

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm thinking we need to weed some of the joylessness out of our Twitter feed.

Hideo Nomo said...

Helton breaks up the perfecto, but gets stranded. Nice!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Grienke

Steve Sax said...

Greinke looked better at his AB than Uribe did leaning for that breaking ball

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke steals second!

Steve Sax said...

Greinke SB!!!!

Steve Sax said...

And, it doesn't matter, thanks to Skip.

BJ Killeen said...

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe grounds out to end the inning

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, pinch runner with a stolen base after a walk to Helton, nobody out

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

BJ Killeen said...

Ok boys, let's shut this down. Daddy's got some catfish to grill (not a euphemism. We are grilling catfish for dinner!)

Orel said...
