Games 109-110 Thread: Aug 9-10 vs. Twins

Tue 9 7p: Urias vs. Ryan
Wed 10 7p: TBD vs. Gray

The new-look Padres came into town this past weekend, and the Dodgers smoked them in a series sweep.. This, of course, after taking all four games in San Francisco before the Padres series. And the Dodgers have won 28 of their last 33.

Even more interesting, the bats of Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger look to be heating up a bit; Muncy with a key three-run HR on Saturday, and Bellinger with two HR on Sunday. Paired with the potent Mookie-Trea-Freddie trio at the top of the lineup, and the offensive firepower allows even the dismal trade deadline pickup of Joey Gallo flounder through a couple of weekend starts (Gallo went 0-for-5 with four Ks on Saturdaya and Sunday).

So a couple of days off, bookending a mini-series with the Twins, and the only thing which worries me is if the Dodgers are peaking too soon. Twins? Peaking? Hmm, sounds like a Series Thread theme (no, not that one).

Seeing the Dodger Stadium beautiful pastel sunset with the flags at half mast and the grand dame rocking out to Mony, Mony breaks my heart that Vin isn't here to appreciate the glory. Miss you, Vin.

This lineup might be finally heating up, too to bottom. If this holds up, it’s going to be a real credit to Doc’s patience

Picking up Joey Gallo must of lit a fire under Cody Bellinger's ass.
Cody had the game winning rbi on both Sunday and Tuesday.
Remember in 2017 when the Dodgers added Curtis Anderson?
Joc Pederson then picked up his pace. It is deja vu all over again!

Back proofreading on my part.
My previous post should have been
"added Curtis Granderson."
