Game 5 Thread: April 11 @ D'backs, 5p

"I'm Dr. Ellis. Dr. Grandal has the day off."

Clayton Kershaw (0-0, 4.50) vs. Archie Bradley (0-0, -.--).

If you're worried about Kershaw's less-than-stellar start on opening day, keep this in mind: He's getting a root canal on Monday, the result of getting hit on the jaw by a line drive during spring training. So cut the guy some slack. He could have easily begged off this start, but THAT'S NOT OUR CLAYTON.

Meanwhile, a grown man named Archie is making his major-league debut tonight. I beat the dead horse about the Dodgers failing against first-time pitchers, but I'm not so sure that's true any more and I'm sure as hell not going to take the effort to figure it out. (Also, I have no idea how to figure it out.) Let's see where that narrative takes us today!

Time to wash yesterday's bitter loss from our mouths. Open wide!
