DUAL Game 139 Thread: Sept. 9 @ Angels, 7p

In a SoSG first, here's our first DUAL-GT. Dusty and I both worked on GTs independently, and queued them up at the same time. YOU make the call on which one you like more (and on which one you are commenting)!

First, Dusty's GT:

Mat Latos (4-9, 4.92) Joe Wieland (0-1, 11.57) vs. Garrett Richards (13-10, 3.77)

One of tonight's pitchers doesn't have enough T's in his name and the other has too many. Anything can happen! Dodgers are 5-0 so far in this series against Anaheim, dating back to the first three games played in Los Angeles. One could say a season sweep is in the making, but then again, Latos.

Either way, we'll still have LA.

Continuing to Sax's GT:

When last we saw Mat Latos, he of the 6.56 ERA since being picked up by the Dodgers, he was complaining about being pulled too early after giving up four runs in his first two innings, and lasting only four innings total. Latos has since apologized to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, but the better outcome might be lasting more than five innings, which Latos hasn't done in any of his last four starts (he went six innings against the Angels on August 2).

How about this, Latos: you start pitching effectively against a team arguably better than the Padres (your last regrettable outing, resulting in a 10-7 loss), and maybe you'll actually get into a rhythm. You haven't earned a win yet as a Dodger. Now would be a good time to shut up and pitch.

EDIT FROM NOMO, 4:24pm

Might as well cram a third Son into this GT. I just dropped in to let everyone know that Mat Latos has been scratched due to poor attitude neck stiffness (Joe Wieland gets the start), invalidating all of the above post. Mat Latos ruins everything.

Update (Sax), 5:27p

Wieland's record added to the top. Yep, let's go for the sweep using the 11-ERA guy (to be fair, Wieland's lifetime ERA is a much-improved 5.98).

Update (Orel), 6:11p

I love lamp.

i'd like to think Latos got scratched from the start due to extreme suckiness.

Steve Sax said...

Latos is probably complaining about being scratched too early

Steve Sax said...

Edited the GT, again. Man, if we keep adding content there, there will be nothing left on which to comment.

Very touching interview with Albert Puljos (sic), Joc and Chance Pederson. Albert's daughter has Down Syndrome and his foundation is to benefit Down's children. Joc's older brother, Chance also has Down's and the two families have become close. One of those 'baseball' interviews that puts life into perspective.

Hey Orel...I've been over on HBO watching the end of Titanic...has Vin updated the gnats score?

karen said...

Nevermind, he just did. Snakes 2-1 in 8th...

Orel said...

Giants and Titanic in the same sentence. Like it.

karen said...

Very good!! That one got by me!

karen said...

I hate games like this...only 1 run down and our offense can't muster up enough to spit...

Greg said...

I'm at the game. It's like a sauna here.

karen said...

Jimson pitches a clean 7th...

Greg said...

All we need is a little schebler into right field.
