Dodgers' Mike Bolsinger keeps the dream going in 2-0 win over Padres

Game 43 Thread: May 24 vs. Padres, 1p

Actually, based on recent performance, all Curly Fries wouldn't be so bad. Carlos Frias (3-1, 2.55) vs. James Shields (5-0, 3.74) Another helping of Curly Fries! Don't fill up and ruin your dinner! James Shields doesn't have a loss this season. Seems a fine time to rectify that. Also of note today, Austin Barnes will be making his MLB debut at catcher for the Dodgers, taking the place of the concussed Yasmani Grandal. Watch your head, kid!

The Importance of Stakeholder Buy-In

As I write this, the Padres have just been dominated by a no-name pitcher and seen their record slip to a barely believable 20-24. Fans were promised a better team, and yet there’s this: Year W L RS RA 2013 21 23 180 190 2014 21 23 133 154 2015 20 24 182 203 On the other hand, because of that promise, there’s also this: G 2014 Att/G 2015 Att/G Diff 23 26,674 31,758 +5,084 (Data courtesy of Baseball-Reference.) Only the Royals and Mariners have seen a greater increase in attendance. The Royals are coming off their first World Series appearance in three...
