Game 27 Thread: April 30 @ Twins, 5p

That's a cold set of twins.

Zack Greinke (4-0, 2.45) vs. Kyle Gibson (3-1, 3.63)

It's cold in Minnesota. How cold is it? It's so cold, ...yesterday's game was obviously postponed, but...heck, I might as well just show you.

That's pretty bad. But no worries, it's not like we need to heat up either the Dodger bats (Dodgers rank 17th in the majors in runs scored, well behind #4 Minnesota), or the Dodger gloves (Dodgers rank dead last in errors committed, below #6 Minnesota). The Dodgers have lost five of our last seven games, so today's game at frigid Target Field should be icing on the cake. If there's any hope, it's that Gibson is coming off a poor start (seven runs, 10 hits, two walks over 4+ innings), whereas Greinke delivered one of the last two wins we've notched.

Whoopee, interleague play! In the freezing cold, no less!

Drizzle here at Target Field. The tarp is on the field.

Hideo Nomo said...

RT @keithlaw The @Dodgers are expected to recall RHP Red Patterson to pitch in their doubleheader vs the Twins tomorrow

Hideo Nomo said...

...assuming those games even happen.

Orel said...

Do you think Alanna Rizzo got your Cobra reference?

Hideo Nomo said...

I think she has ignored every single one of my tweets to or about her except the one where I joked about not saying anything to her in person.

Orel said...

Then she probably IS Cobra!

Steve Sax said...

Can't believe that snow delay had to keep those boobs all covered up.

sack up,Greinks

Fred's Brim said...

Carl has never not scared me out in left. For a guy who was known as a great outfielder, he sure looks shaky out there

Matty gets AG over to 3rd with a chopper to second

Fred's Brim said...

Charley and Orel congratulating Matty for his "professional hitting" even though there is little chance he was actually trying to do that

spank said...

Dre sucks balls.

Fred's Brim said...
