Wow.
No Ramirez.
No Puig.
We won't be seeing Kershaw or Ramirez.

If the Dodgers aren't "ripe" for taking 2 of 3, I don't know when they would be.

Ok ... just looked at Bucs' lineup and realized that both teams are going with the B squad.

OK you meant Greinke but said Ramirez twice.

We miss their two best starters, and their two best hitters are out of the lineup at least for tonight. Keep Gordon off the bases and we're on easy street, right? Plus they played a late game in St. Louis yesterday so they should be tired.

We have been catching quite a few breaks of this type, and I'm not complaining one bit.

Loading up on right handers against Ryu. Initially, the lineup had Martinez in RF, JayHay at 3B and Mercer as SS. I guess they felt uncomfortable with Martinez in the OF so they shifted things around. Can't say I have a problem sitting Polanco against a very tough lefty. He's been struggling a bit of late.

Saw Biertempfl's tweet listing Martinez as RFer and practicing taking liners off of Clemente Wall. That makes zero sense to me. Far more sense to play Mercer at 3B and Martinez at SS.

Mercer is playing 3rd instead of Alvarez.

MLB.com still has Martinez in RF. Weird.

I just don't get replay. Its crazy. Clearly in the close up shot you see the uniform pants move with the swipe of the tag. What the fuck is replay for besides slowing the fucking game down?

"Volquez struggling" and our offensive being offensive as usual...........not a good recipe.

Costly miscue by Harrison. Tough luck facing a guy like Ryu.

I don't know what Edinson thinks is so funny. He is getting plastered out there.

Defense looks like they are playing volleyball. Time to send Volquez to the showers. Lousy lineup tonight Clint. I might be going to bed early tonight.
