SoSG Sax, wherever he is on earth, is preoccupied by two turntables and a microphone. Otherwise, he'd be able to spend time in this space gloating about how the Dodgers were 10-0 in their last ten game. And how we are 25-3 since the All-Star break. And how we're 42-8 since June 22. And how this run matches the 1941 Yankees and 1942 Cardinals for the best such stretch since 1900. And how Clayton Kershaw (12-7, 1.80 ERA) is virtually unhittable and is the best pitcher in baseball.
We kept pitching (cc: Fred's Brim) and, therefore, we kept winning. Another series win and a chance for another sweep. If you readers are sitting in a certain place on the couch, don't move. Don't jinx this run. If you move, it will be your fault if we lose.
