Dodgers @ Padres June 21, 2013: Go Clayton Go

petco_park_opener2013Ladies and gentlemen, the starting outfield for your 2013 Los Angeles Dodgers! In left field, no that’s not Carl Crawford, it’s, uh… Elian Herrera. In center, no, not Matt Kemp, it’s… oh, Skip Schumaker. And in right field, well, Yasiel Puig appears to be everything we’d hoped he be and more, but still, no Andre Ethier to be found anywhere in the lineup.

With Ethier sitting against lefty Clayton Richard and Scott Van Slyke — who is starting his rehab assignment for Albuquerque tonight, reports Ken Gurnick at dodgers.com — joining Crawford & Kemp on the disabled list, that’s where we find ourselves these days. Isn’t baseball fun?

Richard & Clayton Kershaw, opposing one another, are two of the five players in baseball history to go by the name “Clayton,” joining Clayton Andrews, Clayton Lambert, & Clayton Mortensen. Many others have had that as a birth name but gone by “Clay”, and there’s your useless fact of the day.

@Moon Warrior (VND) Oh yeah, you missed that madness. It was nice to see nobody took the troll seriously and mods edited a ton of their comments just to troll them back

And on Kyle Blanks' single: Schumaker has no jump and no speed to make up for the lack of a jump. This is why fielding percentage is worthless. That's a ball that any competent major league center fielder should be able to get to.

@DeucesWild @Moon Warrior (VND) Why do they feel the need to press religion upon us? i have zero - ZERO - problems with religious people. but when they begin telling me that i am not believing some crap they believe in...

@DeucesWild @Moon Warrior (VND) too drunk. maybe tomorrow. i am cautious since Eephus told me i was close to being "Banned".

and multiple twitter DMs about being cautious on MSTI, because yeah im the first person to post something questionable (stares at Kyle) 

in actuality im the first person to stand up to someone being a jerk.

@Moon Warrior (VND) At least you had the courtesy to tell us why you'll be away. I think that douche uses religion because he knows it's frowned upon and it gets people arguing. I could be wrong, but that seems like the simplest conclusion. 


Good luck with the stroke!

@Moon Warrior (VND) They're both replacement level, I just like SVS better because we desperately need the random home run he hits. Our power game is shit aside from SSS Puig

@Cochito Commish I did some looking around and a place in Brea called Total Wine has it in stock, but it's like half an hour from the stadium
