- Clayton Kershaw has an ERA over 5.00 at Coors, so yesterday’s game was hardly a surprise, however the mental aspect of the game could be weighing on him as much as the fact he has pitched 209 innings already. 7 games he should have won that the Dodgers lost. That’s a toll. Compare that to Zach Greinke who has 148.2 innings and looks fresher… because he is, due to his DL stint. Ryu has a 3.02 ERA, Greinke is at 2.78 while Nalsco is at 2.20 as a Dodger, but then there is the “otherworldly one” at 1.89. There’s no argument that Clayton is the best in baseball and when he has a blip, we flip. He will get six days rest before his next start. That’s a good thing. With any luck I’ll be at that game in Cincy!
- Wednesday’s game should be interesting if the Dodgers can score about 20 runs because Edison Volquez has a 14.92 ERA at Coors this year. Yikes!
- Andre Either is suddenly becoming relevant again. No rush for Kemp to be back, but I think we will see him this Weekend in Cincy.
- AJ Ellis looks lost… but Carl Crawford is smoking hot.
- Busy day. Go Dodgers
