Game 100 Thread: July 26 @ Mets, 10a

Google "Dodgers century" and you get images like this. (Get it?)

Zack Greinke (9-2, 1.30) vs. Jacob deGrom (10-6, 2.18).

Today we test the theory of whether the baseball gods care about fatherhood milestones. In Jon Niese's case, in which he watched the birth of his son on facetime from the stadium, a thousand miles away, the baseball gods clearly frowned. Tonight, the Dodgers' Zack Greinke takes the mound, having left the team earlier this season to be present for the birth of his son, Bode. Will the baseball gods smile upon Greinke? Or will they at least cut him a break given he won't have a peaceful night's sleep for years to come?

Greinke's consecutive streak of 43 2/3 scoreless ball is on the line tonight, against a Mets team that might have just awakened its bats yesterday. Hoo, boy.

We need to win 3 of 4 since surely the Giants will sweep

Greinke has the best swing of any Dodger batter so far.
