Game 22 Thread: May 1 vs. D'backs, 7p

Carlos Frias (1-0, 0.00) vs. Rubby De La Rosa (2-1, 4.68)

Didn't we just grab De La Rosa off the waiver wire? Wait, that was another De La Rosa. But Rubby used to be a Dodger. So we dropped one DLR for another DLR, all told. In any event, Rubby will rub down a baseball and take on Carlos Frias, who will try to make his case for replacing Brandon McCarthy in the rotation, who has been moved to the 1,492-day DL.

This is only the third big league start for Frias. In his debut start last season, he threw six scoreless innings against the Nats. But his next start at Coors Field was a disaster as he couldn't make it out of the first inning against the Rockies. One might consider this the rubber match for seeing what Frias has as a starter. One might also say he has blown hot and frio, but that would be bad even for the SoSG pun-sphere.

Three-game series and our defense of the BWHT begins now!

I'm sorry but I just can't take a grown man seriously that goes by Tuffy.

I can however take very seriously a man named Justin Turner.

Grandal does catch a nice ball....

(somewhere Dusty senses a disturbance in the force)

Paul said...

Did Vinny just say "for those of you who were in Guam before the game?"

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Paul: I thought that's what he said, too. That's over my head.

Cliff Beefpile said...

SVS comes through with the two-out hit to drive in two! 8-0 Dodgers.

You had me at hot and frio.

Hideo Nomo said...

Missed this one tonight, but hot damn that Joc slam was super sexy.

spnk said...

Fuck Ethier in both ears!!

Fred's Brim said...

8 runs on 6 hits, that's efficiency. Like the hotel Jesus Colorado had to live in after his mistress caught him sleeping with his wife

Fred's Brim said...

watching the highlight of Joc's running catch in the 9th, it looked like he stung his hand/thumb crashing into the wall. I wonder if Donnie gives him the day off today

Dusty Baker said...

Missed this one last night. Too bad sounds like! Hope Joc is ok.
