The Dodgers are riding Chris Capuano as far as he’ll take them. I can’t believe I just typed those words.
The left-hander continued his shocking success story Saturday, beating the Angels 3-1. Capuano is 9-2 with a 2.60 ERA, with 84 strikeouts in 93 innings.
Baseball analysts keep saying the typically mediocre Capuano is certain to “regress to the mean,” and I’m sure that’s true. I just hope it doesn’t happen till next season. 🙂
After getting swept at Oakland, the Dodgers were in real danger of going 0-6 this week. So Saturday’s victory came as a huge relief to fans of Dem Bums.
If they win today, all the better — but I’m not holding my breath.
