Look right here. See the little flashy thing?
There. Now listen up. The Dodgers didn't play yesterday. They didn't field a Double A lineup filled with names you wouldn't recognize. They did not squander a decent outing by Edinson Volquez. They did not have three errors on the day. Carlos Marmol did not suck. They did not have terrible, amateur level pinch hit attempts from their so-called big guns. Today is a fresh start. The boys are recovered from their post-clinching celebrations and ready for business, ready to finish out the season with energy and be ready for the playoffs. Oh, and there was no sports talk radiogasm over the swimming pool incident.
This one has all the makings of a Burch Smith-turns-into-Cy Young type of game. Let's hope Kershaw rebounds from a poor last few outings and gets the job done. Come on boys, do it for the stadium full of Dodger fans there at Petco Park.
