“On pace.” Is there any more beguiling, teasing, misleading two-word construction than you? You engage and mock us all at once.
But with the Dodgers clubbing four home runs in their final game of April, a 7-3 victory Wednesday over San Francisco, let’s start today with some off-day amusement.
Yes, that projection has Adrian Gonzalez and Alex Guerrero combining for 101 home runs. On the other hand, two of the biggest power players in the Dodger lineup, Yasiel Puig and Yasmani Grandal, have barely gotten going.
Who knows what the future holds, but the power display has been fun to watch for fans of the Dodgers, who played .619 ball in April, putting them on pace for … 100 wins.
