Game 12 Thread: April 19 vs. Rockies, 1p

Mr. & Mrs. McCarthy at the Dodgers' gala event the other night.

Brandon McCarthy (1-0, 6.75) vs. Eddie Butler (1-0, 1.64)

Curious fellow, this Brandon McCarthy: 6'7", funny guy, hot wife who's also pretty funny...and he's given up roughly one home run for every three strikeouts he records. McCarthy is second on the Dodgers' staff in strikeouts (19 to Kershaw's 26, and Clayton has pitched one more game), but leads in home runs allowed (6; Kershaw has given up 3).

The longballs have to come down, of course, but of further curiosity is our front office's predilection for pitching reclamation projects. McCarthy, Brett Anderson and Brandon Beachy are guys with injury histories that the Dodgers scooped up, hoping for bargains, although McCarthy would have to pitch really well for $48 million over four years to be considered outright theft. He went seven innings in his last start, so let's hope that endurance continues.

The first-place Dodgers have won six straight, and why? The Lucky Boobs Streak, and it started here. Let's continue it!

Only two teams have more wins than we do. Don't look now, we might be fairly decent if not good!

We can't lose to an Eddie.

Can't believe Rack is on the bench.

I was going to mention something the other day about us quite possibly being good but was afraid of the jinx factor. But now that Dusty has voiced it, if things go south it's all on him. Love ya Dust but I gotta cover my ass.

Huge turn of events there in T6: Rox with first and third, and Cargo pops to short, and Tulo GIDPs.

2-0, B6

Steve Sax said...

And, a Kendrick HR makes it 3-0!

Mets are also 10-3 this season, so let's not get too excited here

Did Vinny just say Blue has 35 doubles and 17 homers in 12 games or are the voices in my head talking again??
