    Can't PH Corky because Hanigan and then Meso might get hurt and then we wouldn't have a catcher.

    Interesting Mattingly didn't call for a lefty to face JV. Hope Joey pops one here.

    Or, gets on with a walk....

    Re: Dodgers vs. Reds 9/8/13

    Hey guys, I wonder if Kershaw has battled tonight...ya know, if he's a real battler...'cause no one on the broadcast team has mentioned whether he's battled or not. Just wondering!

    BTW: Soto against lefties this year in AAA: .324/.375/.525 for an OPS of .900...

    "Those numbers don't tell the whole story for Kershaw tonight..."

    Since when is 7 IP of 2 ER ball a letdown? Yea, he's ridiculously good but even the best give up a few earned runs now and then. These guys are acting like he's never given up a run in his career until tonight.

    Would make a tiny bit of sense if there still was not something at stake.
    To be fair, Soto hit .324/.375/.525 with 7 HR against LHPs at AAA this year. Of course, Kershaw is not quite a AAA pitcher. Not saying I agree with it, just trying to come with a possible explanation.

    Neftali Soto (last 2 seasons in AAA):

    1025 PA
    .725 OPS

    If you are that desperate for a RH bat from AAA, give Crash Hessman a shot.

    I think it was an in-game tryout for Soto.

    Pay attention to the open sky
