This will be the first time Wood has faced his old club since being acquired by the Dodgers last summer.

Tonight’s match-up will see the southern boy Wood countering the Colombian right hander Julio Teheran. In Wood’s last game he pitched very well picking up his first win of the season against Arizona. In that game he threw seven innings allowing just one earned run on five hits and struck out three. Teheran on the other hand has not pitched particularly well this season and is still looking for his first win. He’s faced the Nationals twice and got bombed last week for six earned runs over seven frames. He got bombed against the Cardinals in the start before that as well.

Teheran has not fared well at all against the Dodgers. He is 0-4 with a 6.08 ERA in four starts versus the boys in blue. However he pitches very well at Turner Field, he is 22-11 there with a 2.91 ERA. The Dodgers are hitting .346 28 for 81 against Teheran with Chase Utley and Adrian Gonzalez doing most of the heavy lifting.

The Braves got off to a dreadful start, losing nine in a row. Since then they have won three in a row. They’re still pretty awful and the Dodgers should defeat them easily. Or suffer the wrath of embarrassment.

Keep in mind this is probably the final time the Dodgers will play at Turner Field. The Braves are moving into a new ballpark located in Cobb County called Suntrust Park next season. The new stadium is planned to break ground before opening day of 2017.

Go Blue!

  1. Great news everybody, Cinco de Mayo is on Taco Tuesday this year. You’re welcome. I’m here to serve. Information that is, not tacos.

  2. The Dodgers should defeat them easily? We shall see.

    It’s hard to believe that Turner Field is already outdated! Wasn’t it built around the time of the 1996 summer Olympics?

    1. Wood is not fooling anyone! And the Dodgers look bad.

      The Giants won there game last night. And I rather have Kike in leftfield, not Howie. Howie is hitting 200, and Kike, is hitting 400.

      Howie is blocking Kike at second, and in leftfield.

      1. Maybe they are showcasing Howie. Howie is a “professional” hitter. He will start hitting soon. His biggest problem to me is that “doo”. What was he thinking? I would be worried about his .182 batting average over 22 AB’s and my 100 push-up bet with Badger, except, Gordon’s empty .282 average over 57 AB’s gives me comfort.

  3. Just turned into the game. We had visitors and could not see any before they left.

    Dodger down 6-1. So what is with that?

    2 on Howell comes in. First pitch is a wild pitch. So what is with that? Then a ball hit off the wall or to the wall, two runs score, 8-1. Get rid of this guy or send him to AAA to get his stuff back.

    Or, are the Dodgers just trying to make the braves feel good after such a bad start.

    NOTE: this is not a negative neddie here — I call ’em as I see ’em. Howell stinks.

  4. Let me say it for you:

    Wood sucks – he should be in AA.

    The team sucks.

    We are doomed to win 70 games.

    There- I hope you feel better!

    1. Wood has largely been unsuccessful as a Dodger. He doesn’t pass my eyeball test. I expect that if any of the walking wounded on the DL come off that the will either be moved to the ‘pen or optioned.

      1. Zach Lee, 3 – 0, 1.56 era but 1.33 WHIP, only 17.1 innings. Good enough to keep Wood looking over his shoulder.

        1. Bum it won’t be Lee. It will be Bolsinger if he is ok, because Bolsinger, isn’t going to knock Stripling out, unless something goes bad.

      2. While that’s true regarding Wood, we gave up 4 unearned and scored 1 run. Kershaw loses that game 1.64 to 1.

        That was an appalling team suck.

        1. And they won’t have the top line up in, for that early game, that Kershaw pitches.

          How can anyone, feel good about this game? And feel good about Wood?

          Like Orel said, Wood is only dreaming about being a major league pitcher.

        2. Earned runs – don’t matter here. Wood gave up 12 baserunners (not including errors) in 4 innings and struck out only 1. Can’t put lipstick on this pig.

    2. It is what it is. Bad pitching . . . and then when the rest of the team locks down, they really look bad. It is what it is.

  5. They were due for a win; happens.

    Now we just need to win tomorrow and Thurs with Strip and Kersh. I say we do it. We take the series 2 of 3 games; I’ll take that on the road

      1. I know Badger, but it is hard to take a day off, and have them play like this, after playing well against the Giants.

  6. It was simply great revenge on his former team who happen to be a hard club to beat. I’m pretty certain Wood will continue whats the only service I’ve witnessed from the guy. He said it himself, he’s here to stay.

  7. Which team looked like it was rebuilding? At least the Dodgers didn’t waste one of their better pitchers on such a weak effort both offensively and defensively.
