Game No. 129: Dodgers vs. Boston


Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-4, 2.95) is tied with Clayton Kershaw, Mat Latos and Francisco Liriano for most wins (five) in the major leagues since the All-Star break, during which time he is 5-1 with a 2.54 ERA. Dodgers will be facing a tough lefty today in two-time All-Star Jon Lester (11-7, 4.09), who will be pitching against the Dodgers for the first time in his career.

It’s a typically perfect Saturday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, and making it even more beautiful is the fact that unlike last night, the Red Sox are going with traditional road grays.


  1. Ant thoughts on Kershaw extension that was to be $210 mil over 7 yrs? Seems a bit high but I sure don’t wart to lose him. If he gets that much I hope they won’t give him opt outs and no trade deals.

  2. Just saw that. Interesting that the report says it was the Dodgers who backed off. Makes me wonder if Clayton’s camp wanted ever MORE than what was offered. Or maybe the opt-out was the breaking point. Will see what I can find out.
