The Dodgers Turn To Julio Urias To Bring Them One Step Closer To World Series

I saw another title for another story concerning Julio Urias’ start tonight in game 4 in the Dodgers against the Cubs.  The headline alluded to Urias age of twenty when it said He is underage to drink alcohol but he can start in the MLB playoffs.

I happen to like this kid very much and am happy to see him start tonight against the Cubs.  He will be the youngest player to start in the playoffs.

He has a record of 5-2 and ERA. of 3.39.  He has struck out 84 players.

The Kings Lose Again, This Time To The Wild, Now 0-3

The Kings must really missing their starting goaltender Jonathan Quick after their 6-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild.  They have fallen to 0-3.

After this latest loss, KIngs’ captain Anze Kopitar had this to say:

“There’s a lot of factors to the 0-3 start,” Kings captain Anze Kopitar said. “We just have to be better. That’s the bottom line. … We’re just not playing good enough hockey now. We’re going to have to come back to work and clean it up. Giving up four and six goals, that’s just not going to cut it. You don’t have to be a scientist to figure it out. Cut that down and go from there.”

I just feel like coming back with a snarky remark especially at the scientist remark.

Here what the Kings coach had to say about the loss:

 “I said it when (goalie) Jonathan [Quick] got hurt. There’s not one thing I can do about it or anyone can do about it. I expect the guys who are in there to play as well as they can, and if they play as well as they can, that’s good. That’s all you can do. That’s what you do, right?” — Kings coach Darryl Sutter

The Dodgers Prevented The Cubs From Ever Seeing Home Plate In Game 3

The Dodgers moved two games closer to their quest, the World Series appearance after shut outing the Cubs. Their pitching played a big part in their victory.  Starting pitcher Rich Hill and his relievers kept the Cub batters from ever crossing home plate.

Hill  pitched for six innings and gave up only two hits.  He walked two batters while striking out six. This win gives him his first postseason win.

The combined pitching staff gave up only four hits the entire game. They walk two and struck out ten. Their combined effort gave the Dodgers a 6-0 victory over the Cubs.

I hope for a repeat performance in game four from starting pitcher Julio Urias and his relief.

The 0-2 KIngs Look For Their First Season Win Against The Wild

After dropping the season opener to cross town rival the San Jose Sharks and a loss the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, they look for their first win in Minnesota against the Wild who are 1-1 so far this season. They will miss their starting goalie Jonathan Quick from a back injury he suffered in the opener. Jeff Zatkoff will be starting in the net in his place.

Zatkoff has 3.09 GAA and a .891 SV% since replacing Quick.

Forward Tanner Pearson will be returning from his four-game suspension.  He received the suspension for an illegal head  check in the preseason.

Rich Hill Will Take the Mound Against The Cubs In Game Three of NLCS

The Dodgers will try to break the 1-1 tie in their best of seven series against the Chicago Cubs and couple that with a win tomorrow night they could possibly make this year’s World Series.

The left-handed Hill is 12-5 with a 2.12 ERA.  He has compiled 129 strikeouts.  Hill has been a nice compliment to all-star Clayton Kershaw since the loss of Zack Greinke to the Arizona Diamondbacks this spring.

Jeff Fisher Apologizes to Lion’s Head Coach Jim Caldwell After His Team Goes Rogue

The Rams would have you believe that the players went rogue at the end of the Rams-Lions’ game when they rushed the Lions’ kneel down.  That’s what Jeff Fisher wants you to believe after apologizing the Lions’ coach Jim Caldwell.  His excuse, the frustration of his defensive line with the Lions’ offensive line.  I would like to give him the benefit of doubt, but I can’t because of their over-aggressive behavior’s history under their defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

I will admit to you that Williams’ lack of regard for the health of opposing teams’ player does not deserve my respect.  As much as I disdain him, I promise I will re-litigate past in this post.  I will leave with this truth to ponder upon.  There are three teams that have label this team dirty because of Williams’ over-aggressiveness, so don’t get upset when they get their revenge on us.  So, coach Fisher, you can deny the sideline was directly involved but it was most certainly indirectly involved of Gregg Williams just being in the building and presence on the team.

LA Rams Coach, Jeff Fisher Not Overly Concern About His Team’s Penalties

An article came to in my email this morning with the headline saying that the Fisher is not concern about the rising penalties.  Really, I thought to myself and how can he not be concern about his team’s penalties especially when they been hurting his team.

According to Alex Gonzalez of ESPN, they have committed 50 penalties for 435 yards for their first six games.  This is the third worse in the league, but what’s Fisher’s response to his team’s penalty problem:.

“The team is aware,” Fisher said. “The team is aware. The team is addressing penalties like they’re addressing their practice tempo and their effort and their commitment to meetings and things like that. I’m not overly concerned right now. Penalties aren’t the problem.”

That’s right penalties are not the problem.  Then please tell what is the real problem causing your team’s self-destructive behavior.
