Hoping for a bounce back with DLR

The Rox need to be treated to an appearance by the "good" Jorge De La Rosa tonight, not a repeat of his last start against the Fish...that was a disaster.
I must admit I'm a little concerned that we may have caught the Nats at the wrong time. They seem to be (gasp!) a tad bit hot.

Glad to see Willy T back in CF tonight, not sure what that move was about last night giving Cory a start. Pretty much all dogs (I-Dog, G-Dog, and Bake-Dog, perhaps revisit "Dongs for Dogs"?) need to break out of some serious slumps too, they're hurting us this past week. For real, man.

Whew - DLR escapes some trouble in the 3rd. Wake up, bats!!

I agree that the Nats seem to be playing with confidence and with nothing to lose. Danger, but we need to squash that confidence tonight!

where are the freaking bats????
this is a joke.

TroutDog said...

Ummm, someone hit please.

Quite a turnaround in this game. Some bloop hits surrounding a couple of walks in the 8th have the Rocks in pretty good shape. Didn't see this coming a couple of innings ago.

Sonic Tooth said...

Didn't see it coming but sure as hell glad it did. wow.

Francis pitching? I-Dog tshirt jerseys? Swankys? Count me in!

Sonic Tooth said...

half tempted to wear my Francis Jersey T to work and onward to the game tomorrow.

TroutDog said...

The Francis t-jersey would be a good choice. If I only had one!

Who else is going to the game Fri?

TroutDog said...

Kind of liking the move to claim Livan Hernandez off of waivers. I hope we can secure him over the next 24 hours without giving up too much. He seems to pitch well at Coors and would be a pretty decent starter option, especially within the NL West.

Sonic Tooth said...

I certainly don't have any issues with L. Hernandez being a Rockie. Curious to see how it works out if the Twins do let him go. He has been a big game pitcher in the past.

I am sporting the Francis, dontcha know...

Missed the big 8th, but saw the crap 1-6 innings. More than happy to go to Catacombs and see a 2-2 tie with Manny in a bit of trouble in 8th. Check back a minute later: and I-Dog gets hit with 1 out and 1st and 2nd occupied. 5-minutes later, bases still loaded and the rox have a 2-run lead.

nice.like.nice.like.

war i-dog 'live the dream' shirts

war going to a game for the first time in like a gazillion years.

TroutDog said...

Yes, it has been a while since I've been at work hungover. Must be related to the extended roadie.

What is this Live the Dream stuff? I hope there's nothing "extra" about these jerseys.

DT - I hope you saw the Stew-Bag HR. It was a bomb and hopefully will trigger some sort of amazing turnaround, ala last year's Helton dong.

With the big crowds this week, we might want to be there pretty early for the I-Dog t's.

Respeck jersey tshirts in the workplace!

Sonic Tooth said...

Hopefully the West Highlands Kid isn't a shaky mess tonight. Looking forward to the game.

TroutDog said...

Yes, I'm hoping Jeff is sharp. We need to make sure not to dilly daddle at Swanky's, as the game may be out of reach after the top of the 1st if Francis does his usual.
