Game 152 Thread: Sept. 17 @ Rockies, 12n

Not Taye Diggs; Carlos Frias

Carlos Frias (0-0, 3.91) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (13-11, 4.28).

In tonight's performance, the role of Hyun-Jin Ryu will be played by Carlos Frias. Who is not rotund, nor is he Korean.

But it should make for a a pretty good show--Frias held the Nationals scoreless over six innings, a highlight in that otherwise regrettable game--so long as Frias doesn't let the perils of run-happy Coors Field crush the life in his soul. To paraphrase the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "Frias, last; Frias, last; (we will) thank God almighty (if) we (can make) Frias last." Didn't know MLK was a Dodger fan, but I'll go with it.

The Giants and Diamondbacks play their game early as well (12:30p, first pitch), but with Madison Bumgarner on the mound for San Francisco, I'm guessing we'll have to win to keep the NL West lead at 3.

Sheezus, this feels like a loss already

I know its a day game after a night game and all that happy horse crap but aren't we in the heat of a pennant race? Why doesn't Mattingly throw the towel all the way in and start Chris Perez?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

The Dodgers forgot to put their balls in the humidor

Hideo Nomo said...

The DBacks totally Dodgered a leadoff double in the4th, and they're still tied.

Alex Cora said...

Frias and the rest of the dodgers are only 2000 points from the colossus yellow cover, so they are all in the dugout playing MPQ

Orel said...

Makes sense. All is forgiven

Hideo Nomo said...

Chris Perez in. Headed for 17-0.
