Game 1 Thread: March 20 @ Padres, 3a

Tyler Glasnow vs. Yu Darvish.

Hey, Seoul Series! Ain't that frickin' early on the radio, stereo; I can't afford Spectrum, you know?

The starting lineups haven't posted yet, but MLB.com has been kind enough to post matchups. For the Dodgers, players who have fared well against Darvish include Freddie Freeman (.286 BA and .926 OPS with 2 HR in 28 AB), as well as James Outman (.333 BA and 1.166 OPS with 1 HR in 6 AB); not to mention new Dodgers addition Teoscar Hernandez (BA .333), who batted .414 in spring training this year.

For the Padres, the only regular to face Glasnow is Xander Bogaerts, who has a .167 BA and .583 OPS against Glasnow in 12 AB. Glasnow is new material for the rest of that lineup, which is still formidable with Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., and Ha-Seong Kim.

I'm going to try and make it up early for this one...but we'll see.

We get Mookie on to start the game, and then can’t move the runner into scoring position.

0-0, mid-1
