Battle of Lefties

Tonight, we’ve got a battle of two left handed pitchers, Alex Wood versus Sean Newcomb.  Wood is arguably the Dodgers’ second best starting pitcher with a record of 12-1 and an ERA of 2.38.  Over his most recent thirteen starts, he has won eleven, lost one, and had one no-decision.  Newcomb, age 24, is in his rookie season with the Braves, having pitched nine starts with a record of 1-5, ERA of 4.50.

 

Meanwhile, carry on with the discussion of Jamie McCourt.  Here’s her house in Napa.

DEADLINE DAY

Major League Baseballs Non Waiver Trade Deadline Ends At 4PM ET

Will Darvish, Verlander or Gray, fly to Atlanta to join the Dodgers in the coming hours?

Could a reliever weigh heavily on the minds of the front-office?

If so…what type of prospects and or other pieces will be exchanged?

Will they fore-go a bullpen arm and call up Walker Buehler to assist the club?

Will they add another bat to the mix?

Do they even need to do something big that requires top prospects?

I’ve read that…

Darvish may require top prospects

Verlander will cost money/prospects

Gray will require a battle with the Yankees

 

Hang on to your caps today folks…A storm may be brewing!!

 

Angels – Dodgers in the O.C.

angels of anaheim

Tonight, the Freeway Series moves to Anaheim.  That’s in Orange County.  It’s not in Los Angeles.  It’s not even in Los Angeles County.  It’s Anaheim.  So call yourselves the California Angels or the Anaheim Angels, already.  Or the Orange Angels, if you wish.

Tonight Hyun-Jin Ryu goes up against Alex Meyer.  Will Corey Seager or Justin Turner or Yasiel Puig be ready for this one?  We’ll just have to wait for the lineup to come out.

Joc Pederson seems to be ready.  He’s been on an offensive tear of late.  Of course, Cody Bombay Bellinger is always ready.
