Post-Game 43 Thread: Dodgers Good or D'backs Bad? Who Cares

Who's a good boy?

DODGERS 7, DIAMONDBACKS 0

Seriously, though, who doesn't love the Snakes? Everything seems to go right against them, or they go wrong against themselves, or whatever. Greinke was magnificent tonight, going eight scoreless innings, punching out six and, for good measure, going 2 for 4 at the plate with an RBI.

Puig, who now owns an OPS of 1.012, got the party started with a booming home run in the third inning. Ellis and Greinke added an RBI each in the fourth, SVS destroyed a HR of his own in the sixth, Hanley and Kemp each had an RBI in the seventh, and Puig decided to remind everybody he rules with an RBI double in the eighth.

More Snake goodness tomorrow. Thank Quetzalcoatl!

Can we play them every week?

Late night conversations with Mrs Dusty in Law. Just hit us that Angels have had Salmon and Trout. Too bad Sid Bream was a Pirate, right? Or Catfish Hunter. And that they all didn't play for the Marlins.

Dodgers win, and Giants bullpen blows it so they lose. Yay!

I think right now the Dodgers ballplayers have more hate for the D-bags than they do for the Gnats, unlike us fans.

and Kevin Bass? Why are so many people named after fish?

Steve Sax said...

I guess once you start naming these fish people, they get hooked.

If you are looking for a baseball blog to analyze fish names, this is the plaice

This is stupid. Who gives a carp?

Steve Dilbeck had this factoid in the LAT (which I am sure was from the Dodgers' PR but still):

Puig now has seven consecutive games with an extra-base hit and at least one RBI, tying him with Pedro Guerrero for the Los Angeles Dodgers record.

Although not a fish pun, given how horrible this thread is, it's probably just as whale.
