Clayton Kershaw (13-8, 1.72 ERA) vs. Chad Bettis (0-3, 4.80 ERA)
Food for thought: If Chad Billingsley and Jerome Bettis ever had a love child, the kid would have the biggest thighs of all time.
This game time snuck up on us here at SoSG World Headquarters. Sax and I saw each other at Dodger Stadium like ten minutes ago or so, right? Weird.
Today the Dodgers take on the Rockies for a three-game set, fresh off their sweep of the Pod Rays yesterday. The elimination number for the Dbags is now 16, and the Dodgers have a healthy 11.5 game lead on them. I'm guessing that with that lead and with the expanded roster, we'll start to see some crazy lineups made to get the regulars some rest. Which also may lead to bad baseball. And likely to some poorly-constructed Game Threads here. In fact, we're resting Stubbs for the stretch run, too; we need him for the playoffs.
