Font goes up in flames

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Wilmer Font was smacked around last night after all the times I’ve commented on how hot he has been. Font walked six batters in just four innings. He had walked only six in his previous six games combined.

He had a good run.

Brandon Morrow isn’t doing himself any favors in trying to get back to the Dodgers. You could understand if he is down after doing very well for the Dodgers but still got sent back to AAA. Has to be a different mindset when you have tasted major league success like Morrow and can’t get back to the show compared to those young arms who are just trying to get there. In the end, both types want to make it and stay. Since Morrow came back to AAA after throwing six scoreless innings for the Dodgers he has given up five runs in just 2 2/3 AAA innings.

Ross Stripling threw a nice scoreless inning as he waits for his AAA time to end so he can replace Brock Stewart.

    Give Font some more time
    Everyone has a throw away day once in a while.

    He could be useful out of the pen in the dog days
