Series Thread (Games 15-17): April 12-14 vs. Brewers

Oh, that series sweep by St Louis makes me mad.

Fri 7p: Julio Urias vs. Corbin Burnes
Sat 6p: TBD vs. Zach Davies
Sun 1p: TBD vs. Jhoulys Chacin

What a shitshow. Meeting our first non-NL West opponent of the year, the Dodgers got absolutely spanked in St. Louis, both on the field (outscored 26-12 across four straight losses) as well as off the field (Russell Martin, Hyun-Jin Ryu, and Corey Seager all felled by injuries). Our starting rotation is now up in question for this series--as I post the starting matchups, two of the three are filled by the infamous "TBD" (whom I don't think can start on consecutive days!)--and we look discombobulated coming back to Los Angeles against the division-leading Brewers, our formidable 2018 NLCS opponent.

Speaking of which, remember that Game 7 of the 2018 NLCS in Milwaukee? Cody Bellinger's two-run HR; Chris Taylor's amazing catch in centerfield; Yasiel Puig's mammoth three-run shot to break the game open; and Clayton Kershaw's relief appearance in the ninth?

As inspiration for this series, let me remind you:

Have minimal fear. Delino is here. In one of the farthest seats known to man. I’m closer to my house than to the batter. And got here too late for bobbles. But a dog and beer �� keeps me happy

Worst traffic I’ve ever seen at a dodgers game . And that’s saying something

QuadSevens said...

The dodgers loaded the bases and got a hit? Wtf? 2-0 is after one.

CT3 follows that with a ground rule double. His second hit of the day. Hopefully his bat stays hot.
