Welp, only three games deep into the season (Dodgers sit at 2-1), we start a pitcher whose game day scouting report notes "All eyes will be on the radar gun as Anderson barely reached 90 mph in his final tuneup against the Angels, although he insisted his surgically repaired back is fine." Your re-vamped lineup, ladies and gentlemen! It may well take Adrian Gonzalez hitting 17 home runs tonight to overcome the dread D'bags in what has recently been a tense rivalry, including most recently a dust-up in a Spring Training game.
We here at Sons have always relished noting interesting names in the players we watch, and tonight is no different. Anderson vs. Anderson. B vs. C. We like that symmetry. Which reminds me of the fascinating player name collision I came across during Wednesday night's game as I "watched" it the only way I could: MLB GameDay on my phone while sitting at a bar watching the Angels game.
Enjoy the game, and, if not that, the nomenclature.
