Game 129 Thread: August 23 @ Phillies, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (2-3, 3.59) vs. Cole Hamels (10-8, 3.22).

COMMENTS: Don't go grocery shopping when you're hungry, don't go calling exes when you've been drinking, and don't go writing a Game Thread after the Dodgers have gotten their butts kicked. Yet here I am, ready to bury this team, which is streakier than Morganna the Kissing Bandit. They lose when they should win, win when they should lose, and generally seem to be all about toying with their fans. Don't go breaking our hearts.

Anyway, didn't these young phenoms just face each other? Let's see if Uncle Maddux can teach young Clayton to become a stopper. After all, the Dodgers will have to stay within shouting distance of the Diamondbacks if they want to make those six remaining head-to-head games against them mean anything.

I have a giants fan staying with me this weekend, so we'd better win today.

Wow ,Dodgers get their butts kicked. Glad no one was around to watch this one...oh wait it was a nationally televised game on Fox. Opps.

Glad I missed this one. We ate at Apple Pan today, so the day wasn't a total loss.
