Game 97 Thread: July 23 @ Mets, 4p


Clayton Kershaw (7-6, 2.68) vs. Bartolo Colon (9-8, 4.68)

After a mostly disastrous visit to the ATL, the Dodgers roll into Queens for four with the Mets. It almost seems unfair to throw Kershaw (today) and Greinke (tomorrow) against what can best be described as a hapless Mets offense. I say ALMOST, because this is usually the situation where we get all overconfident and the scrubs drop 15 on us. So, no guarantees here.

Hopefully, Colon will blow enough to give Kershaw the run support he needs to work his magic. Meanwhile, we'll be clenching.

Uh, I mean some reader who used to post here did! Hell of a guy!

Hideo Nomo said...

Joke I didn't feel like tweeting because I couldn't quite get the wording right:

Zack Greinke will take a break from his scoreless streak to provide proof that he scored.

Greinke could pitch in NY this weekend, Mattingly said.

Heard the Mets' ballpark has small dimensions. They're on the Itty Bitty Citi Committee.

Orel...Do you know why flags are at half mast today? I was thinking maybe for the Marines and Sailor that were killed last week but didn't know for sure.

Orel said...

Yes, Karen. For the Chattanooga victims.

Orel said...

2 perfect innings

karen said...

I don't know if this makes me a sucky fan but I seem to get excited about our team on the days Kid K and Sponge Worthy pitch...having trouble getting jazzed about the others these days...

Steve Sax said...

Collaspo with a four-pitch walk! 2-0 LA

Collaspo is best when he doesn't swing

karen said...

4 pitch walk to forces in a run...2-0

Steve Sax said...

five straight balls. 1-0 to Grandal

Steve Sax said...

sixth ball was WAAAAAAAY outside (WP), but Dodgers unable to advance wen the ball caroms back to the infield

Steve Sax said...

karen said...

Yaz Ks on a bad pitch...

Steve Sax said...

grandal turns a 2-0 count into a strikeout. Not so good.

Steve Sax said...

Jeez, now we're swinging wildly on Torres, with Puig continuing

Steve Sax said...

Puig with a deep sac fly to right, so it's 3-0
