Brandon McCarthy has certainly earned the #2 spot in the rotation with another stellar start at Chase Field yesterday. Los Dogs avoided a series sweep on a fine seven-inning effort from the Grim Mortician. McCarthy surrendered two runs on five hits in the 6-2 victory over the Diamondbacks. The victorious pitcher immediately boarded a private jet afterward to attend an embalming lecture at Cornell University.
Los Dogs’ bats went berserk as they put up a half-dozen runs in the fifth inning yesterday. Grandal grooved a two-run blast…Seager and Grandal knocked in some rabbits as well.
If You’re Going To San Francisco, You’re Going To Meet Some Hostile People There…
Los Dogs would look like toast (the road trip hasn’t been great) going into the Frisco series had Mad Bum not pulled a Jeff Kent and flipped over the handlebars of his BMX outside a Denver 7-11…you can be assured there was a nearby boom box blasting Dio nearby…and Trans Ams…and girls in tube tops…
Adam Raised A Cain
Hyun-Jin Ryu and his 0-3 (5.87 ERA) record will take the hill in Fran Fran tonight. Matt Cain (1-0, 3.31 ERA) gets the start for the hated ones.
It’s a shame Ryu wasn’t available more often in Spring Training so that he didn’t have to treat April as such. The guy hasn’t pitched in a couple of years and they just toss him into the season…the result is too predictable…were there no other alternatives? Should Los Dogs have just thrown Petros Papadakis into the rotation? Inquiring minds want to know!
The Frisco Freeze begins tonight at 7:10.
Will Hyun-Jin halt the hammers of Hernandez, Hill, and Hundley? Will Cain confound the cool charisma of Corey and company? Okay, forget about alliteration for this last question…it’s been on our minds since the accident occurred…
Did Mad Bum crash his BMX into a chicken stand Arthur Fonzarelli-style? The people demand answers!!!
Until next time, mirth-seekers!
