Game 131, 2016

Dodgers at Rockies, 5:40PM PT, TV: SPNLA, ROOTRM

Kenta Maeda (13-7, 3.37 ERA) goes for the Dodgers and Jon Gray (8-6, 4.61 ERA) does likewise for the Rockies. Both rookies have been solid recently: Maeda has given up three runs or fewer in each of his last six starts, and Gray has a 5-1 record at home in twelve starts at Coors.

The Rockies took two of three from the NL East-leading Nationals over the weekend while the Dodgers did the same to the NL Central-leading Cubs.

The Dodgers have reportedly placed Yasiel Puig on revocable waivers, which means he could be claimed but then pulled back by the Dodgers or he could be let go.

  1. In just one game Scoop has seen Reddick get a hit and the Dodgers not get shut out!

  2. Today should be instructive as to our chances in the playoffs (knock on wood) with Hill on the hill and Klayton simulating. (actually, no knock on Wood, other than him being injured).

  3. Toles wants to score for Scoop so he doesn’t have to witness the Dodgers being shut out.

  4. Nice to see that Rockie rookie get his first hit. Big smile and a doff of the batting helmet.

  5. Somebody needs to tell Gray if you throw so many pitches in five innings, you give up a load of runs.

  6. Sometimes when I’m watching the games on TV I enjoy watching the fans sitting behind home plate. Tonight there is an older lady with a polka dot top and purple scarf. She seems to be having a very animated discussion with the person sitting beside her. I wonder what they are talking about.

  7. Saw Arenado make two errors in a game in DC on relatively easy plays. It happens.

  8. It would be nice to capitalize on future Dodger Arenando’s mishandling of Segedin’s hit.

  9. Puig being waived is only news because it be him. Just about all players are placed on waivers at this point.

    • I could envision a Puig for Braun deal, since I believe Braun has cleared waivers. Not necessarily advocating that, though.

      • Braun signed until 2021. Hard to acquire a 32 year old with five more years on his contract and $91 million to be paid. But he is good (now).

  10. This is a good opportunity to gain a bit of ground without having to watch the scoreboard.
