Dodgers @ Reds September 7, 2013: Greinke vs Latos

greatamericanballparkAn MSTI first: a game thread posted from a boat. Seriously though, an infield including Young, Ramirez, and Schumaker might just be the worst defensive threesome in baseball, right? Unless, I suppose, Dee Gordon was at shortstop.

I blame collagen. specifically the collagen in Kemp's ligaments

i think they should've taken out Wilson with at the very least a phantom injury. He clearly didn't look right.

If anything, I'm blaming Ned for this game

If Young isn't a Dodger, Urbie starts this game, and he does something with the bases loaded, and saves a run in the first inning

Three in a row, lost a series, but hey we got that rest in Coors. So yeah

I blame Colletti for Volquez and Crapuano. We need to have a team ERA of 2 forever. The team offense is super tired.

How about we let Paco rest for a bit, Mattingly? Yes, he's been good for a while, but that doesn't mean he's solid for 4 games in a row.

The Dodgers don't look so good right now.  National games suck.

@PagansOedipalComplex I'm still wondering what the hell happened in the fourth when Greinke got thrown out around third

I don't blame him for Crapuano.

@LA_Woman Wednesday's game shouldn't count. They were actively trying to lose that game.

@Jobu Managers are supposed to believe in this "grit" stuff, I thought it was accepted fact

I wish Ned didn't but he does, maybe i expect more from a GM than just "Grit wins ballgames"

@SpaceDodger (depressed math cat) @Raul Franklin Jeez, suddenly everybody jumps on me for saying what everyone on the blog has said for months: Capuano has been the weakest starter on this team. He went less than 2 innings yesterday, leading to a lot of bullpen work. That's all I am saying.

Y'all are angry when we lose.

@PagansOedipalComplex @Raul Franklin Furthermore, I am glad for any innings eaten the remainder of the year, and I know that we have ground through more pitchers than any Dodgers team before has.

Capuano is fine. I'm just anxious. I am sure you can sense that.

@PagansOedipalComplex @Raul Franklin Ok, thank you for showing me. He's adequate. When I "blamed" him, I really was mainly referencing the fact that due to his (out of his control) injury last night, and Volquez predictably shorter than quality outing in Denver, we are looking at a tired bullpen, despite the fact that we have a lot of pitchers in it.

And yes Mattingly threw that game away
