Series Thread (Games 100-102): July 24-26 vs Twins

Monday 7 pm: Colon vs Ryu
Tuesday 7 pm: Berrios vs Maeda
Wednesday 7pm: Santana vs Wood

The Twins are coming into town for a three game series.  This might be the last time to see Bartolo Colon pitch (and hit) for good, as he is mulling retirement.  With the news of Kershaw out for 4-6 weeks, this next half of games should prove interesting.  Will we rally like we did last year and keep the line moving or crawl up into a ball in the corner of the dugout?  Plus that trade deadline is looming.  Did we go all in and give up some prospects?  Lets see what Doc Roberts, Friedman and Company have in store!  Go Blue!

Tues, 5p: Clayton Kershaw vs Miguel Gonzalez
Wed, 5p: Kenta Maeda vs Carlos Rodon

Now look at those standings! That's the way you do it. You play the guitar on the MTV (record scratch sound effect) — whoops, I mean, should we be worried about the Diamondbacks acquiring J.D. Martinez? Let's hope 10.5 games hollllllds!

Series Thread (Games 91-93): July 14-16 @ Marlins

Well, well, well, the scheduling gods gave the Dodgers a little gift. Their first series after the All-Star Game in Miami is...also in Miami. Does this mean Kershaw, Turner, Bellinger, Seager, Wood, and Jansen just chilled on the beach all week? Must be nice! (We do know Kershaw is getting this series off, for extra rest.) Let's hope they didn't get too complacent, and they can keep their foot on the gas as the second "half" begins. They're currently 7.5 games ahead of the DBacks, 9.5 games ahead of the Rockies (both teams still hold the two Wild Card spots, despite recent skids), and just because it's fun to mention, TWENTY-SEVEN GAMES in front of the Giants.

Fri, 4p: Brandon McCarthy vs. Dan Straily

Home Run Derby, 5p

It's all about that sweet, sweet lefty home-run swing of Cody Bellinger. He goes up against the Rockies' Charlie Blackmon in the first round and is chasing Joc Pederson's second-place finish in 2015, the best a Dodger has fared in the Home Run Derby. Go Cody!
