Carlos Frias (5-5, 4.31) vs. Rubby De La Rosa (6-3, 4.69) Don't let what happened to Mike Bolsinger happen again! Always wash your hands before preparing Curly Fries.

Game 78 Thread: June 29 @ D'backs, 6.30p

Mike Bolsigner (4-2, 2.95) vs. Allen Webster (1-1, 6.46). Admittedly, when thinking about today's opposing starter and subsequent GT theme, I didn't look this one up. And since I'm a little fuzzy on all these 80's sitcoms, I did check the lyrics, though. And when I saw "You made me leap without taking a look" was rhymed with "You reeled me right in line, sinker, and hook", I have to admit I got a little depressed at how awkward that lyric reads. How about we repurpose this to, "We just can't wait to face this new stinker* / Fastball and change; not much of a sinker"? Then came...

Post-Game 77 Thread: Greinke Finally Prevails

"My God, they're not going to give me run support, yet again. And why the hell is that Callaspo guy batting seventh again, Donnie? I can't take this crap." DODGERS 2, MARLINS 0 Once again burdened with the albatross of anemic Dodgers offense, Zack Greinke pitched into the eighth inning and won the rubber match for us against Miami, 2-0. His outstanding performance was again necessary, as the Dodgers' only real run came off a seventh-inning Adrian Gonzalez double (his 23rd, and 48th RBI), scoring Howie Kendrick from first. Kendrick got an RBI of his own in the fifth, but it was kind of a...

The Road to 30***: D'Lyin's Long Strange Trip to Every Baseball Park

And all roads must come to an end. Except for the James Bond series. And the never hotter career of Andy Dick.I couldn’t tell you the first day I went to a baseball park. Sometime in 1980/81 when the Phillies were rocking a lineup including Pete Rose, Mike Schmidt, Quick Draw Tug McGraw and “Mister .160” John Vukovich.On July 7, 2015, I will have officially been to every major league ballpark*** And unlike the finale of The Sopranos, I know how this ends. In Arlington, Texas next to a friend who refuses to be named.For the next chunk of days, I’ll be doing a retrospective of my...

Focus, Zack, focus.Zack Greinke (5-2, 1.70) vs. Jose Urena (1-3, 4.34). Zack is Mr. Consistency, having gone at least six innings in all 15 of his starts this season. The Dodger bats, let's just say they could use some more consistency. Let's also forget yesterday's defense and win this freakin' series.

Clayton Kershaw (5-5, 3.33) vs. Tom Koehler (5-4, 3.76). Funny thing about the win stat: It's practically useless, but we still want our guys to rack 'em up. With Giancarlo Stanton headed to the DL and the Dodger bats loving the Miami heat, now's the time. Go Blue!

Addressing Dodger Holes

Jason Martinez of ESPN.com indicated the Jimmy Rollins hole can be filled, but our starting pitcher rotation is the bigger vulnerability (link insider only): Los Angeles Dodgers 39-33 record (NL West leader) Trade target: Cole Hamels, LHP The Dodgers have fared quite well in the pitching department despite losing starters Brandon McCarthy (Tommy John surgery) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder surgery) for the season. Of course, that's helped by Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke making two out of every five starts. But don't let the success of the rotation mislead you into believing that struggling...

I think it's fair to call Frias "seasoned" at this point. Carlos Frias (4-5, 4.68) vs. Jon Lester (4-5, 3.80) Remember all the Lester hubbub in the offseason? Could we have imagined that he'd have the exact same record as Carlos Frias on June 25? OK, so Lester has more than a slight edge in ERA, strikeouts, and probably every other stat you can think of, but WINS AND LOSSES, AM I RIGHT? It's lunch baseball, kids, and you get a heaping helping of Curly Fries, whether you like it or not.

"Do YOU think I say 'we' and 'us' too much, Mike? Mike? Hello?" Mike Bolsinger (4-2, 2.87) vs. Kyle Hendricks (2-3, 4.28) Does anyone know if that team that scored 10 runs on Sunday ever got on the plane to Chicago?

"Miss u, bae." Clayton Kershaw (5-4, 3.29) vs. Tsuyoshi Wada (1-1, 3.68) Both of these teams were the talk of the offseason, and both now have very similar records. The difference between the two appears to be competition, as the Dodgers are in first, but the Cubs' 37-30 record is only good enough for third. This is the first of a four-game series, but weather MIGHT be a factor tonight. Will be be doing this game thread over tomorrow?

Happy Father's Day! Brett Anderson (2-4, 3.43) vs. Timmeh Lincecum (7-3, 3.31) Dodgers try to salvage one game out of the series and keep a tedious Division lead before heading out for a key series with the Cubs in Chicago. Let's send them off in a winning way and get a win for all the dads out there! Image swiped from here. Awesome products so jump over and give them some business!

Whoa! Easy, Chuck! They can't all be winners! Mike Bolsinger (4-1, 2.25) vs. Chris Heston (6-5, 3.76) Which Chris Heston will we get tonight: The one who no-hit the Mets (with THREE hit-by-pitch, mind you), or the one who only lasted five innings against the Diamondbacks? Which Dodgers offense will we get tonight: The hot-hitting sluggers from April/early-May or the anemic lineup that, by some miracle, managed to eke out a win without registering an RBI last night? Which Sons of Steve Garvey will we get tonight: The drunk ones, or the really, REALLY drunk ones?

Post-Game 67 Thread: Walkoff Balk

Your browser does not support iframes.Not your average walkoff.DODGERS 1, RANGERS 0 Whole lotta goose eggs in that box score. If the Dodgers and their ice-cold bats were going to win tonight, something different had to happen. After all, they left men stranded everywhere all night. But Greinke pitched flawlessly and the Dodgers found themselves in a scoreless tie with two out and Kiké Hernandez on third in the ninth. Hernandez juked, Rangers pitcher Keone Kela flinched, and the balkoff win was in the books. The Dodgers' three-game losing streak ends in the most ignominious of ways, but...

Zack Greinke (5-2, 1.95) vs. Anthony Ranaudo (0-1, 32.40) Look, if the slumping Dodgers' offense can't break out against a guy with a THIRTY-TWO POINT FOUR-OH ERA, then they've officially Ranaudo excuses. How about not getting swept, Dodgers? Deal?

Which NL West Team Do You Root For?

Here's what I got. Make sure you fill out the mlb.com quiz, "can we guess which NL West team you root for", and see if you generate the same answer! (I'm also a Brewers and Braves fan, apparently.)

Clayton Kershaw (5-3, 3.21) vs. Wandy Rodriguez (3-2, 3.03). How to hype an upcoming game, exhibit 426. MLB.com game preview: • Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins has a .444 career average (8-for-18) with one home run against Rodriguez. Rollins is batting .198 (46-for-232) all year. I'll take the under.

One More Thing On That Amazing Pederson Catch

Look, I agree, Joc's game-saving catch in the ninth inning last weekend was indeed incredible. But I have to laugh when reading shoddy journalism like this mlb.com recap from Lyle Spencer: Like the incomparable Willie Mays, the eternal gold standard for center fielders, Pederson has the knack of anticipating where a ball is going to land and turning and sprinting to that location. It is something his father taught him when he was a kid, Joc said. If Willie Mays is incomparable, then why the heck are you comparing him to Joc Pederson?! Spencer goes on to make sure we are not, in fact,...
