… and there is no question who our ace is – it’s Clayton Kershaw! His now sitting with a 2.76 ERA and should have won his 9th game. Here’s a sick stat: Clayton has allowed 5 HR all season, placing him 217th among all major league pitchers and the guys he is close to have pitched like 40 innings! This kid is the real deal. It’s too bad Broxton has a million dollar arm and a 10 cent brain. However it is just a lack of sitiational hitting that is killing the Dodgers. 13 hits banged out, 2 runs! Some of that crap is because you have a middle-of-the-order hitter hitting #8. FELONY STUPID!
- The Mariners traded for Jack Wilson and they are still in ythe race, so they aren’t about to trade Washburn now… maybe later.
- The Giants are much better offensively with Ryan Garko at 1B and Freddy Sanchez at 2B. The Giants had to give up their # pitching prospect, however.
- Scott Elbert was scratched from his start in Albuquerque last night, leading one to believe that he may be re-called with Leach going down.
- It ain’t how you play right now. It’s about how you play down the stretch. This is a blip in the road, but I question our coaching and managing and the fact that we have a female psychologist counseling the staff as to how to treat certain players (“They are too sensitive to be criticized….”) Horsebleep!
