Maeda vs. Wacha

In the second game of the Dodgers at Cardinals series, Kenta Maeda (4-2, 5.08 ERA) will pitch against Michael Wacha (2-2, 3.66 ERA).

The Dodgers have been all kind of hot lately.  They’ve hit eleven home runs in the past five games.  They’ve won their past five games in a row.  The bullpen has pitched shutout baseball for the last 21 2/3 innings.  The Dodgers have won ten games out of their last twelve.  The Dodgers are just a half game out of first place.

  2. Did my eyes deceive me or did Brandon Morrow hit 99 yesterday on one pitch?

    So when Wood gets done with his in-season vacation, who goes? I’d vote Romo.

  4. Maeda not making things any easier for him with two defensive misplays. The offense will have to bail him out again.

    • I was waiting for the cry for “Ice cream” as soon as the Dodgers moved into a tie with the Dbacks for first place and were leading the cards in the game.

  5. Playing good baseball right now. Gotta keep it up. I don’t think the Rocks or Snakes are going away. And, the Gnat’s will start to play better. Long way to go my friends… But, we are in the drivers seat for now..

    Woo-Hoo!!!!

  6. CBell had a rough night in the 2 hole. 4 strike outs and 9 LOB… His strike outs are starting to become alarming. The pitchers are catching up.. I hope he can make the adjustments…

    • Wacha, threw him a slow breaking ball up and in that handcuffed him…That was the first time I’ve seen him, or anyone really, get fooled like that. What is Bellingers career average? .270 maybe? I think, if they thought he was gonna hit .400…He wouldn’t be swinging out of his shoes, so to speak. During my time, which hasn’t ended yet by the way… Gywnn, Carew and Boggs were the pinnacle when it came to hitting. Bonds was as well, and with unsurpassed power, Even he took years to get to the pinnacle of hitting. Bonds didn’t just start out getting free bases. Bellinger has a limber swing…and because of that, he’s able to attack the entire strike zone with precision. Just look at his agility when he squares around on a bunt. The kid could bunt a pitch that was bowled to him. He’ll make adjustments. But he may want to get with his shoe company and design some weighted lunar cleats.

      I emulated Rod Carew after little league…It’s a good thing too. I may have never got that one hit, in the last game of the season.

  7. Photoshop is fun! I’m sure I’ve missed a pitcher or two…Fields was in on the sweep of Chicago. I’ll get him in the scene at some point.

    Maeda cracks me up…I put an outline of the Hulk up after the the boys went down 3-zip!

  8. Did anyone else see Turner Ward yell at Puig as he was ready to step in the batters box? I missed his first instruction. The second was WATCH OUT FOR THE SLIDER!! Puig reminded me of my grandson Bubba when I get him out of the grocery basket and let him run free…Bubba always looks at me, like…are you sure you want to do this? Then bolts!

    Puig took a slider off of the plate for ball 4. GOOD JOB YASIEL!

    • After they cut that hole in my stomach last year…I put the 60/70 lbs I had lost back on. I finally decided it was time to turn this around. Keeping busy has really helped.

      I try to only consume 1500 calories a day…Mostly healthy. I adjust this a bit though.

      Grilling Burgers tonight…
