Game 28 Thread: May 7 @ Brewers, 10.30a

Carlos Frias (2-0. 0.00) vs. Mike Fiers (1.3, 4.74).

Frias has only pitched 7.2 IP across three games this year, but already has twice as many wins as last year (when he sported a 6.12 ERA). We're looking for him to earn us the split in Milwaukee, else we risk losing the belt.

However, it's really the other starter about whom I'm worried: Mike Fiers throws inside, hard, and at the head. Fiers allowed one run in eight innings against us last year, but I suppose we were lucky no one had to leave the game in an ambulance. Blame the Brewers (as Orel pointed out before, we didn't start Mike Fiers); I think of it more like, Fiers beware. (Of course, if the Brewers starter ends up skipping the start because he's sick, it could be a Fiers ails at Miller Park: everything must go!)

Oh, what the heck, I can't resist riffing on Orel's pun from last year: Uribe! Starts today! What else do I have to say?

spnk said...

steiner and co. talking about how the Dodgers have one of the best bullpens in the league. could have fooled me or maybe i haven't been paying attention.

karen said...

I think it's just that we are still traumatized from last years pen.

Hideo Nomo said...

I do think the bullpen meltdowns are fewer and farther between, but when they're bad, they're AWFUL.

spnk said...

true that,K and gnomes plus Brandon League was still in the bullpen when the season started so the pen still felt like it stunk big time.

karen said...

3 run blast for Yaz! 10-3 Good guys.

I really wanted to be bitter and hateful towards Gandalf because of how we got him. Not feeling so resentful after today.

spnk said...

the Dodgers winning games softened me up about the trade.

In other news: Fuck Dre!
