Game 125 Thread: August 20 @ Marlins, 4p


Chris Capuano (4-6, 4.66) vs. Jacob Turner (3-4, 2.89)

Chris Capuano, stopper? (Chris Stopuano?) How did we get HERE? Two days ago, we were flying high, riding a ten-game winning streak. Now, we've dropped two straight to pretty awful teams, looking lethargic in the process.

You have to give the Marlins a little credit. Their core group of young players, led by Jose Fernandez (who may have been helped out a touch by John Hirschbeck's erratic strike zone), played like they had nothing to lose. They went right after the Dodgers, treating them like the big dogs of MLB they've suddenly become.

So, what's the deal? Are the Dodgers tired? Burnt-out? Full of themselves? Do we really need to prove Steve Lyons right by losing a few to "stay hungry?" No, no one should prove Steve Lyons right...EVER.

So, snap out of it, Blue. The media's ready to jump all over you the second you falter. Don't take the bait.

UPDATE:

Swell...

Puig is still working out that hangover? Can't blame the guy. He has made many party in the past couple of months. I'm feeling a little beat down myself.

Already in a wee bit of trouble.

Scott said we could have flown there and bought the best tickets and still have spent less than for two decent seats at Dodger Stadium.

I blame FB.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gotta keep pitching.

Neeebolito said...

He just had to go teach geometric theory to those orphans in Tajikistan. Thanks FB

Neeebolito said...

So the Marlins survey is who would you rather have on your team Puig or Fernandez. The Marlins announcers : "Without a doubt Fernandez". They don't pay those guys the big bucks for nothing!

Dusty Baker said...

So Cap has gone back to crap.

Hideo Nomo said...

Back?

Dusty Baker said...

Further back. Like, waaaay back.

BJ Killeen said...

Dusty Baker said...

I may be late the this party but I saw where Puig was fined for being late to the park today.

BJ Killeen said...

Man. Donnie has a crush on League. Why else would he have put him in there?

MR.F said...

News flash: League still sucks.

Dusty Baker said...

League has pictures of Donnie with goats and midgets, obviously.
