Let’s Get Back to This One

letsgetback2this1

All that playoff roster talk is great, but we still have to clinch the National League West division during the regular season.  The Dodgers are six games up with ten games left to play, so the Magic Number = 10 – 6 + 1 = 5.  Who said there would be no math?  There’s always math in baseball.

The Colorado Rockies are in town for a four game series.  This will be Vin Scully’s last home series, so let’s make it a good one.  The starting pitchers tonight are lefty Brett Anderson (0-2, 24.75 ERA) versus righty Tyler Chatwood (11-9, 4.13 ERA).

How’s that for a controversial picture on the lead-in post, as opposed to in the comments?

You better beware of Ole Pork Chop Brett

He’s the craftiest man in the whole damn land

He wears a Dodger cap, keeps the ball on the ground, and he’s sound.

Bad, bad, Ole Pork Chop Brett. Greatest 4th man around?

    Sung to the Tune “Bad Bad Leroy Brown” by Jim Croce

    Woah!

    Well the south side Midland Texas
    Is the baddest part of town

    You better just beware
    Of a man name Ole Pork Chop Brett

    Now Pork Chop throw a sinker
    And he grows a long red beard
    And he like to wave to fans in de stands
    Cuz he likes to hear them cheer

    He got a custom knuckle curve boy
    He got a four seam fastball too
    That sinker he throws they hit it and it goes on the ground
    He rarely throws the change

    And he’s bad, bad Pork Chop Brett
    He’s the craftiest man in the whole damn land
    He wears a Dodger cap, keeps the ball on the ground,
    Greatest 4th man around.

    Well Sunday ‘bout five weeks ago
    Pork Chop on da mound
    Pittsburgh Pirates came to town
    They lined up for Pork Chop
    And he thought he was back

    Well he threw a dozen pitches
    And the trouble soon began
    And Pork Chop Brett had learned a lesson
    ‘Bout throwing the gopher ball to a major league man

    And he’s bad, bad Pork Chop Brett
    He’s the craftiest man in the whole damn land
    He wears a Dodger cap, keeps the ball on the ground,
    Greatest 4th man around.

    Well Doc Roberts left him in there
    And when Doc finally pulled him live
    Pork Chop looked like he wazza bout done
    With an ERA of forty-five

    And he’s bad, bad Pork Chop Brett
    He’s the craftiest man in the whole damn land
    He wears a Dodger cap, keeps the ball on the ground,
    Greatest 4th man around.

    And he’s bad, bad Pork Chop Brett
    He’s the craftiest man in the whole damn land
    He wears a Dodger cap, keeps the ball on the ground,
    Greatest 4th man around.

    And next game he was bad too.

  3. Impressive win considering Anderson’s tryout did not go well but this is not the same Dodger team we came to know and critique before mid July. That team would have gone quietly into the night as
    Vin might have said.

  4. Brett Anderson finished the evening (and hopefully the year) with a nice shiny 15.00 ERA, to go along with his WHIP of 2.667 and four home runs for every nine innings pitched.

    • But if you handicapp it as they do in golf and throw out the bad outing, then the not so bad outing. It’s as if he never existed. Except we know better…’cause his picture is posted up above.
