Get-away game, and boy do we need it. After running the Great Boob Streak of '15, the Dodgers ran into the slumping pile of scruffy greasers who were clearly highly motivated to turn things around and to beat their chief rivals. Aaaand have they.
Today Mike Bolsinger makes his Dodger debut, generating exactly no excitement or optimism (except probably from Karina). Game 15 and we're already scrambling for starting pitching - what could go wrong? Here's hoping the not-really-necessary-14-games-in decision to rest key players last night pays off and the Dodger bats re-awaken, as does the infield defense.
I heard on the radio this morning that last night's matchup was the first time in baseball history that a reigning World Series MVP and a reigning Cy Young award winner had ever faced off against one another. Makes me wonder if two pitchers whose last names involve singing have ever faced off?
Too bad this isn't a weekend day, or it would be straight to the Assassins' Circle Bar for some spicy Bloody Marys with a shot of hate on the side.
