Will Ferrell hilariously reads the Dodgers’ starting lineup before Game 5 of the NLCS

Big League Stew

The Dodgers didn't bring back the "Rally Bear" for Wednesday's do-or-die Game 5 of the NLCS against the St. Louis Cardinals. But they did invite actor/comedian Will Ferrell to read the team's lineup before the game.

Those of us watching at home can enjoy's Ferrell's work in the video above, but sadly it leaves out Carl Crawford, Mark Ellis and Hanley Ramirez. We're all wiser now that we know Yasiel Puig believes in the Chupacabra and Juan Uribe loves Katy Perry.

Ferrell's introduction of Zack Greinke didn't make the above video either, so here it is:

The "today's winning pitcher" thing, we'll see. At the time of this posting, in the third inning, the Dodgers and Cardinals were tied 2-2. But one of those L.A. runs came on a Greinke RBI single.

Ferrell, meanwhile, is having himself some fun with L.A. sports teams these last couple days. On Monday, he dressed up like a Trojan and led the USC band. Then earlier Wednesday, he called the Dan Patrick Show and did an impersonation of USC interim football coach Ed Orgeron.
