Interesting theory about how changing catchers has made such a difference.

Pitch framing is huge - big reason the Dodgers went after Grandal.

I was sweating last night - Arrieta has had his way with the Dodgers. But he didn't have a chance, especially the way Wood is pitching. Arrieta definitely has issues. He's giving up a ton of runs. I don't think the Cubs are going to make much of a run if he can't figure things out.

so Keuchel goes 6 innings with only 1 run. 8 k's to 2 bb.

So since we started tracking- both got wins-
Keuchel now 8-0 with a 1.81 ERA
Sale now 5-2 with a 2.34 ERA

Both have 10 starts- and should make 8 more before the break. Sale definitely not in the lead right now by any stretch of the imagination.

nice rivalry with Strickland and Harper. Going to be really interesting to see the suspensions from the brawl today.

Yup. UCL surgery on Wednesday. 6-8 weeks.

Such an amazing player, and on such a bad team. And yet they're 25-24, which says all you need to know about his MVP case. He's already been robbed twice

swoosh jinxed him

If they can play anywhere near .500 I'll be satisfied. Rockies have a much easier couple of weeks so my expectation is that the Dodgers will fall a couple more games behind. The Rockies opponent I'm rooting for hardest right now? Math. Regression to the mean is coming, right? RIGHT?!

So far, so good. Dodgers have won 6 of the first 7 and miraculously, the Rockies have lost 3 of 5 and the Diamondbacks have lost 3 in a row. In the loss column Dodgers have gone from 2 back to tied. Today was huge - the most ERs Leake has given up this year.
