Series Thread (Games 5-7): April 5-7 @ Athletics

Monday 4/5 6.30p: Dustin May vs. Frankie Montas
Tuesday 4/6 6.30p: Clayton Kershaw vs. Chris Bassitt
Wednesday 4/7 12.30p: Trevor Bauer vs. Jesรบs Luzardo

Four games into the season, and we're already neck and neck with the Padres, a theme we'll probably hear all season long. And while San Diego gets to feast on a 1-2 Giants team for their next series, we get our 1988 World Series opponent A's (who are 0-4 this season, having been swept by the Astros). Boy, the Bay Area is off to a poor start this year.

Dustin May gets his first start of the year, having earned the spot over Tony Gonsolin and David Price (the latter of whom looked awful in a relief appearance against Colorado). I'm sure Kershaw will be itching to get back in the win column after his frustrating Opening Day loss.

Ready for this!

Nats still haven't had a game (COVID protocols). We play them next, right, in our home opener?

QuadSevens said...

Nats have been cleared to start playing tomorrow. Three games with the Barves, including a double-header on Wednesday. Dodgers home opener is Friday against the Nats if everyone avoids Covid.

Gonsolin to the 10-day IL

QuadSevens said...

Dodgers win! CT3 and Bellinger injured in today’s game though.

Steve Sax said...

Wow just saw the link for the gold-outlined cap and new “VII” patch on the jersey. GO DODGERS

Dusty Baker said...

Bellie got cleated. Painful and shitty, and easy for me to say, but that's far better than an ankle ligament or similar that could have happened on that play.

He's day to day, but aren't we all.
