Is Donnie-boy conceding this game against Hamels? Sure, it’s an early getaway day game. But why do we have to use a Torre type of lineup? Sure Ethier needs a day off once in a while, but then why is Loney in the lineup against a strong lefty like Hamels? Has the world gone mad? Or is it just Donnie?
However, as a fan, I will not give up on this game. You never know who may step up and give us some offense. Maybe today is Castellanos’ day? Maybe Treanor (“Mr. Misty May”) will give us yet another long ball. Count on Herrera to help out. Maybe Gordon will even learn how to bunt his way on. This team has been full of surprises lately.
Finally, I think we’ll finally see what Shawn Tolleson can do against major league hitters today.
