Tonights Dodger game from San Fran: skip it.
Turned the game off in the first with the Dodgers down 4 to 0 and a completely unhittable Tim Lincecum on the mound. See you tomorrow night.
Best pitcher in baseball.
A number of things had to happen sequentially tonight I believe for the Dodgers to have a chance to beat Tim Lincecum. First off, they needed to have a productive top of the first. All three balls were hit on the nail but somehow found their way into the gloves of the Giants. As soon as I saw that, and Lincecum got out of that top of the first having made all of five pitches, or something like that, I knew that we were in massive trouble.
Secondly, it was imperative that Stults have a solid game. Remember, this is one of the worst offenses in baseball in the Giants. They are at the bottom of the league in almost every offensive category. As soon as Stults began to make his pitches I could see there was going to be no chance for us to win tonight. I even wonder if Torre, knowing that, rested Kemp. After Lewis made out, it was a merry go round of Giant hitters. This is what Eric Stults is. The matchup was a mismatch tonight and the Dodgers, under any ordinary circumstance would have enormous difficulty beating this man. After going down by 4 it was mail it in time, see you tomorrow San Diego.
First round knockout, as I suspected.
