I’ll be honest: the game was so bad today that I actually forgot to write something right after it ended.
So what went wrong? Hard to tell, as it may have been a perfect storm of bad. Capuano was charged with 4 runs, but three runs were the results of errors. Despite his size, Scott Van Slyke was not fielding first base very well. In a slightly bizarre change, Ivan De Jesus was playing 3rd base, while Jerry Hairston was pushed over to 2nd. And then, Hairston was pushed over to SS to replace Dee Gordon. But no one was really able to hit anything except for Alex Castellanos, who had a triple for his first MLB hit.
The Dodgers lost 13-3. It was rough. Tomorrow is a new day, but it’s Harang in Coors, so I’m not…excited.
