Then where is Lincecum in the equation? Hmm... OK let's find the ERA ranking for MLB starters. Oh, here it is.

105. Jake Arrieta 5.55 > 106. Tommy Hunter 5.67 > 107. Timmy 6.07.

Unfortunately, with the Dodgers' pathetic hitting right now, Timmy will probably lower his ERA to slightly under 6 after Wednesday's game. Should be a fun rest of the year. Go Dodgers!

Stop this NL west pillow fight. Both teams got owned by the Angels last week. If MLB had relegation, the NL west is where the sorry teams would go. ;-P go Bears! Go Halos!

Tomorrow's start for Timmy is going to be interesting. He had a bad first inning in his last start but after that, he really dialed in. Let's see if he carries that over.

Injuries happen. Weak excuse. Matt Kemp didn't cause Kershaw to give up the big HR to The Melk Man.

I say this with the utmost respect for one of the greatest rivalries in all sports. The Dodgers blow! Today we'll know better if Lincecum has gotten over the hump or not. Go Giants!!! Beat LA.

You're thinking of the AL Central.

I agree with this.

And so if the Dodgers blow and the Yankees swallow...the Giants rim and felch, you know it being SF and all!

(sorry...just stirring the rivalry a bit)

Forgot to mention - he beat Kershaw earlier in the season too. 2-0

But yeah let;s see...

I witnessed some of it in the 70s and the Dodgers and Giants still hated each other very much. That part of old time baseball I miss. Now players provide each other professional courtesy because who knows, they could end up on the same time via free agency. It still is (to an extent) one of the greatest sports rivalries ever. Hell it's pretty certain Walter O'Malley and Horace Stoneham moved West around the same time to maintain the rivalry, knowing that was a big part of the game. At least if there's a race for the division, the rivalry gets revived.

My worry is that he has the perfect team to pitch against to get this act together (like Zito the other day). No need for rehab assignments to the minors. Just schedule a start against the Doyers. Doyers gotta take one from the Gigantes, though. Glad it's the Dodgers and Giants contending rather that the D-Backs (boring).

one start doesn't define a trend. Kershaw has owned the Giants in the past. Whether or not yesterday was a precursor of things to come or just a bump in the road remains to be seen.

Reminds me of:

"And let that be a lesson to you all. Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row."
after beating Jimmy Connors at the January 1979 Masters. Gerulaitis had lost their previous 16 matches.

Clayton has not been himself this year because he has plantar fasciitis on his plant foot, which we know can be painfully dreadful when MSF had to play on it. He'll likely have to power through the rest of the season with it. Plus 2 runs allowed is more than a quality start anyway. Vogelsong has been great this year.

Kershaw in 0-2 against the Giants so far. Im excited for the next Kershaw start against the GMen. This is perhaps the best Giants offense of recent.
