Watch tonight as Dickey becomes "Freddy" I mean R.A. Kruger" The Dodger's dream killer.
I am excited for my bank account as the time has arrived, Much easier than catching Grunion on a full moon lit beach, is getting some fresh cheddar in my account from the Dodgers futile attempts to hit the baseball with any consistency. I do say consistency. Its a losing streak!, So, whether the Dodgers had six hits last night or six hundred, I contend that is as proverbial as the long strike, as useless a long foul ball. Oh, you gotta be kidding me. Now the God of creation has the sense of humor to put a dancing baseball in front of a team that has the timing reminiscent of the Steve Martin "look mom I'm dancing" scene in "The Jerk"? Yikes!.
Weather (lil pun) or not you believe me. Don't mess with the Dodgers tonight. The weather is perfect for the knuckle ball. R.A. Dickey, the 37 year old pitcher for the Mets is looking for redemption from a shaky but not embarrassing start against the Yanks, He will be very comfortable with a impetuous Dodger line up. Wait a minute, doesn't the knuckle ball by design make batters look foolish?, Well then, that would be a contradiction of terms. If the Dodgers showed any signs of getting back in the saddle last night, I'm afraid that will be mooted by their attempts to hit a butterfly in a hurricane. This ought to be prosperous for anyone who considers it.,
Remember we are throwing the stats out the window. But one we may want to consider is that Harang is another Dodger pitcher who has pitched way above expectations or stats. I believe the Mets will put the ball in play on him but they will not score more than five times against a formidable Dodger defense and a ball park that is legendary for its stinginess. Something like a 5-0, or 4-0 score seems realistic. I AM NOT GOING TO WOW ANY ONE WITH STATISTICS,
The Dodgers are in a blue funk (which is seasonal). The knuckle ball is their worst nightmare. Dickey is looking for win number 12, To me, based on my experience, the Dodgers will be standing there tonight like Spinks did verse Tyson. Harang is a veteran, He will be conscious of saving face, and careful enough to keep this game from getting out of hand. Fortunately for us, There is no saving face for the Dodgers
The Mets are a good club firing on all pistons. They are more than plenty to knock out a Dodgers team that will most certainly wearing two left shoes tonight. Despite the 6.5 total at +125 I believe this is a decoy, I am standing firm that the under will be consistent in this series.
