Hyun-Jin Ryu (0-0, -.--) vs. Trevor Cahill (0-0, -.--)
Best record in baseball, baby! And, no matter the outcome tonight, Dodgers are guaranteed to have (or be tied for) the best record in baseball until March 30th! Aren't small sample sizes and weird regular season games during Spring Training just THE BEST?
Speaking of small sample sizes, Puig's ugly-ish offensive output from Spring carried into last night when he went 0-5 with 3 Ks. Vin mentioned how much of the game is "played between the ears," so let's hope he can shake it off starting tonight. As cool as Van Slyke's night was, he shouldn't be asked to carry the load every night. He already has to carry that increasingly epic beard.
This is the final game in Sydney before the team heads home tomorrow to play a few more meaningless games. No all-nighters required for this one, thankfully. Sax and AC will be back in the Cricket Ground and Team Killeen will be back at Sportsnet LA. Me? If I'm still awake by game time, I'll be checking out Gameday Audio.
