Game 114 Thread: August 8 @ Cardinals, 5p

"I'm watching you sleep."

Hyun-Jin Ryu (10-3, 3.15) vs. Carlos Martinez (0-0, 5.56)

The Cardinals have called up Carlos Martinez to start tonight's game, after the Dodgers managed to rustle Westbrook* last night. The Dodgers should have an easy time against Martinez, since he'll be trapped in an invisible box all night.

Actually, the Dodgers have seen Martinez already once this year. He pitched in relief in a game that, oddly enough, Jake Westbrook was supposed to start but couldn't due to injury. Dodgers won that game. Sounds like a decent omen to me!

*Joke recycled from original GT idea.

I hope the Dodgers don't feel like they're walking into the wind tonight.
