Mike Bolsinger (3-1, 1.98) vs. Rubby De La Rosa (4-2, 5.09).
Remember this guy? Rubby De La Rosa was an up and coming prospect for the Dodgers, but we traded him to Boston in 2013 as part of that Adrian Gonzalez / Carl Crawford megatrade (De La Rosa was a PTBNL, who was defined in October 2012). Since then he has had a couple of major league seasons, never with a winning record until this year with Arizona, which follows a career low 4.43 ERA (and 4-8 W-L record) in Boston last year.
"De La Rosa" is really not that close to "De La Rocha". But I have always liked this track, arguably not their best, but still a good one. And after watching the Dodgers sulk through a weak showing against St. Louis, it's hard not to listen to the opening words, "no matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now" and sort of laugh at how that isn't the Dodgers' persona at this stage. We're more in a Funk than we are Renegades. Can we beat a SoSG dead horse, and Rubby one out tonight?
UPDATE 6:30p: Forgot to mention, SoSG AC and Stubbs are at the Stadium tonight, suiting it up for Blogger Night! AC already sent me a photo about him running into Lisa Leslie. I think he was called for a blocking foul.
