Game 7 Thread: April 10 @ Giants, 1p

Scott Kazmir (1-0, 0.00) vs. Johnny Cueto (1-0, 1.29).

The two NL West heavyweights go at it for a fourth and final time this series, with new #2s on the mound for each team. Kazmir signed with the Dodgers this offseason for $48M / 3 years. Cueto signed with the Giants this offseason for $130M / 6 years. Is Cueto worth twice the number of years, and roughly 3x the number of dollars? Let's see if today's start gives any indication on the relative worth of these disparate investments.

We know one guy who will come ready to play: Charlie Culberson. I'm still enjoying watching his highlights from Saturday's game, and he understood the importance of the rivalry in his post-game thoughts, especially given he started his major league career with San Francisco. Let's do it for Charlie and get a series split today, boys!

Steve Sax said...

Oh yeah, and Culberson, yesterday's hero, is not in the lineup

Now how will Kazmir give it back? As I typed that, Pagan hit a homerun.

karen said...

...and it's tied again. Diablo fucking Pagan goes deep.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I enjoyed Gamera vs. Barugon when I was a kid, and the MST3K episode as an adult.

Cliff Beefpile said...

The umps strike zone has been fuckin' weird all series long, for both teams.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I don't even care that Duffy went to CSULB. Fuck 'im. Hit him again!

karen said...

I HATE Pagan.

Just fucking hate that mofo.

karen said...

8-6 evildoers

Steve Sax said...

Kazmir sucks, and this bullpen is worse

karen said...

9-6 Evil going to 7th.

Fred's Brim said...

The chickens have come home to roost for JP haven't they?

Steve Sax said...

Down by three, two on, two out, top 7, laboring opposing starter...

...yeah, this seems like a good time to PH Micah Johnson.

Steve Sax said...

CULBERSON WAS AVAILABLE, ROBERTS

karen said...

Far be it for me to be an armchair quarterback....but Micah Johnson as the tying run at the plate??

Cliff Beefpile said...

Joe Blanton: because apparently a 3-run deficit with only 6 outs left isn't enough of a challenge.

Fred's Brim said...

How can you let Joe fucking Blanton wear 55? I guess its already been sullied by Skip Schumaker and Matt Guerrier

karen said...

Blanton gets off cheaply enough...seeings how he's Joe Blanton.

Orel said...

Depressing.

karen said...

Kike draws the walk.

aka a Dodger rally.

Cliff Beefpile said...

*Muttley flies out weakly*

Yeah, I don't see Howie Kendrick replacing Utley as a huge problem, Nomar.

karen said...

Painful.

Fred's Brim said...

yuck

spank said...
