Game 29 Thread: May 8 @ Rockies, 5:30p

You know what happens when you mix baseball and rain? De Niro and Snipes show up.

Brett Anderson (1-1, 4.21) vs. Eddie Butler (2-2, 3.81).

Our boys are 5-2 on this current road trip in their last seven games, which brings them to Colorado today — except the weather may not be cooperating. The current forecast calls for rain and thunder in Denver, creating a prime opportunity for a doubleheader in L.A. when the Rockies visit Dodger Stadium next weekend.

If we do get a game today, who will power the offense? Will it be yesterday's hero, Yasmani Grandal, whom I recently likened to a handful of magic beans? NL Rookie of the Month, Alex Guerrero? NL Rookie of Next Month, Joc Pederson? With Kemp traded and Puig on the DL, color me as surprised as anyone about the Dodgers' offensive prowess. But hey, as our mantra goes: We'll take it.

Orel said...

Thanks, fixed

Fred's Brim said...

looking at weather maps, starting right now, it looks like there'll be a decent window to get in a few innings

Fred's Brim said...

So it looks like we're gonna give it a try

JP steals second

Orel said...

Joc is like a young Kemp

Fred's Brim said...

JT walks, 1st and 2nd, 1 out

Orel said...

I don't think the Red Sox still have any players from the AGon trade

Fred's Brim said...

AG with a ground rule double, 1-0 good guys, would have been two if not for the GR

Fred's Brim said...

great sliding catch by Dickerson but JT tags up to score

Fred's Brim said...

wild pitch doesnt get far enough away, AG caught at home, although it didnt look like there was a tag

Fred's Brim said...

Turner at second tonight, barely gets Blackmon at first

Fred's Brim said...

ground single

Fred's Brim said...

another rolling single

Fred's Brim said...

slow-moving double play but it works

Fred's Brim said...

Dre walks

Fred's Brim said...

wow, nice double play

Fred's Brim said...

Anderson gives it a ride but to the biggest part of the park

Fred's Brim said...

at least Jimmy can still run

Fred's Brim said...

another devil jump-up!

Hideo Nomo said...

G'nite, Brimmy! Say hey to the other Brimmies!

Hideo Nomo said...

Crazy play, but the Dodgers get out of the fifth. 2-1 in the 6th, but no real threatening rain at the moment.

Steve Sax said...

Getting that play at the plate for the final out of he fifth was huge. Back in rain delay, top 6 with the bases full of Dodgers and one out. If the delay continues and they call the game, it's official as a 2-1 win for LA

Steve Sax said...

Still in rain delay

Steve Sax said...

Pretty shitty that they've cut the radio feed in At Bat during the rain delay. How am I supposed to hear when the game comes out of delay?

Hideo Nomo said...

Dodgers win!

Steve Sax said...

And it's a final! Dodgers win

Fred's Brim said...

woop!

Fred's Brim said...

tonight's been called already, saving a Son from creating a game thread?

Fred's Brim said...

so unless there's a double header tomorrow (and there shouldn't be), we keep the belt! Who gets to raise it though? Brett Anderson and his 0 ER? Mother Nature?

Steve Sax said...

I'm sleepy.

Hideo Nomo said...

GT up!
