Game 18 Thread: April 26 @ Padres, 1p

We borrowed this guy from Texas for the day

Scott Baker (0-0, -.--) vs. Brandon Morrow (0-0, 3.15)

Today's game notes are not exactly a ringing endorsement:
Baker gets the nod for the series finale, the third different fifth starter the Dodgers have used in as many chances. He was signed after being released by the Yankees at the end of Spring Training.
Welp, we'll see. At least it's good to see a guy named Baker in a Dodger uniform. Puig is out of the lineup again with a troublesome hammy but on the positive side Guerrero gets the start at third. A sweep would be nice here to help wipe away the lingering stench that was the series in San Francisco. Let's get a win and get home, boys!

This one's for you, Guerrero truthers!

Hideo Nomo said...

Sure would be nice to get another infielder, so they don't run Turner into the ground.

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe if we asked nicely Rangers would loan us another player.

Josh Hamilton?

Solarte out at the plate on Matty's double.

Is Baker's locker near McCarthy's? Gives up a solo dinger

MR.F said...

Is it okay to still like Matt Kemp? I rationalize the trade as "we have a crowded outfield and he's the most tradeable guy".

karen said...

2-0 LoCals. Remember back in the day when the Dodgers were 'pitching rich'?

karen said...

Guerrero with his 5th homer!! 2-1.

MR.F said...

Wow AG

Dusty Baker said...

Now we're "pitching bitch." Like, a new one every five days.

Dusty Baker said...

Sure liking this AG II.

karen said...

@Mr. F...I say yes to the Kemp question. Except for when he's playing us.

Orel said...

I agree with The Artist Formerly Known as MKW

karen said...

@Orel...It's a little easier losing my MKW status when I see his new homeless look. Not loving the bushy beard and long hair. From behind, however, I have no complaints.

Last ups boys.

3-1 SD through eight

karen said...

We still leave town with the big belt though, right?!

Steve Sax said...

Only Alex Guerrero does, I'm afraid
