Game 134 Thread: August 28 @ Nationals, 4p

Clayton Kershaw (2-4, 4.11) vs. John Lannan (7-12, 3.95).

COMMENTS: Sometimes ya just gotta laugh. What, did we say that already? Well, you know who else is laughing? Diamondbacks fans. Sure, the Dodgers are in position to get swept by the league-worst Nationals, but the Diamondbacks just got swept by the third-worst Padres. Suckitude for all!

Delivered in a non-descript, manilla enveloped, SOSG Sax delivered the mint condition, Shawn Green batting gloves (yes, plural.)

Inside was a note on W Hotels letterhead, with the appropriate salutations.

Careful not to leave any real clues, the mystery behind the psuedonyms remain. But what has changed is that now the curse of the Puzzle Lottery is broken.

By my calculations, the Dodgers have not won since the prize giveaway winner was announced.

Now that the prize was duly delivered to its new, rightful/fateful owner-NEEEBS-the cursed losing streak will end today.

Lets see if we can break out of this funk.

Booger said...

If they would have played .500 baseball over the last week, we would be at least tied for 1st. Truly Pathetic!!

Steve Sax said...

erin, you're kinda spacey today.

(seriously, thanks for posting the lineup)

Steve Sax said...

glad you got the package neeebs. We need a picture of your hand in said glove!

Loney Fan said...

Come on Shawn Green gloves!!!

Booger said...

Fucken Kershaw, way to hold a lead

Booger said...

It looks like it will be 7 in a row.

Neeebs said...

Photo of the glove has been sent via email

Booger said...

37 pitches in the first inning. he will be done by the 4th

Loney Fan said...

Oh well, there's always next year.

Booger said...

Why are they like this? I thought they fired Jim Tracy?

Steve Sax said...

Glove picture is posted, neeebs. Thank you very much!

Let's see if the glove gets love...

Steve Sax said...

Kemp, now 0-for-3 even with the finger pointed at himself

Steve Sax said...

Boy this is awful to watch, even on Gameday.

Steve Sax said...

Troncoso was smooth in the fourth but it struggling in the fifth

Loney Fan said...

We couldn't wait for September this year. We had to start blowing it in the end of August and WITHOUT the Padres help.

Eric Karros said...

Hey Sax, pretty crappy game, eh?

Eric Karros said...

Some teams peak too early. We nadir right on time!

Steve Sax said...

7-2. Unbelievable, everyone is just phoning it in. No amount of green tea can save this.

Steve Sax said...

seriously, the tops of the innings are going by so quickly, I can barely keep up

Steve Sax said...

three big hits so far.

hooooooo boy.

Loney Fan said...

That last out says it all... pathetic

Orel said...

Hello all. Glad to see we are about to be swept. Again.

Orel said...

8-2 Nats. At this rate I'm going to run out of Eddie Izzard routines.

Steve Sax said...

8-2, I can't take this any more. I'm out.

Erin said...

Hey guys. Now I feel like the Nationals are just mocking us.

Eric Karros said...

Hi Erin. Get out while you can.

Loney Fan said...

That's it, that's all I can take. Goodbye Dodgers, I'm leaving you all I don't know when we will see each other again.

Tu as brisé mon coeur

Booger said...

FUCK THIS PIECE OF SHIT TEAM.

THEY ARE A BUNCH OF DICKHEADS. I HATE THE DODGERS.

Booger said...

THEY ARE A COMPLETE EMBARASSMENT

Orel said...

bad dodgers make booger cry

Booger said...

Crying was on sunday. its way beyond that now.

Orel said...

Step away from the medicine cabinet.

Rob said...

Hide the razor blades: Jayson Stark reports the Dodgers want to bring back Casey Blake next year.

Rob said...

bad dodgers make booger cry

Not to mention misspell words.

Orel said...

You guys are going to miss the most incredible comeback D.C. has ever seen!

Rob said...

Hey guys. Now I feel like the Nationals are just mocking us.

Garrett?

Orel said...

Rob, are you worried the Angels may have peaked too soon?

Erin said...

The mocking line was meant to be a pun, because of the pitcher's name. But there is no room for joking when the Dodgers suck so bad, I guess.

Rob said...

Scott Elbert getting his contract purchased from AA Jacksonville. White flag time.

Rob said...

WRT the Angels peaking, they've always been like this. The offense has a habit of coming and going; it was just that earlier in the season when this happened (April/May) the pitching was unstoppable. Now the pitching's also having a rough stretch, so you notice it more. See also the 2005 ALCS.

Guzman hits for the cycle.

karina said...

Just came back home. I'd wish i could quit this team, am i a fool?

Orel said...

11-2 Nats. When we lose, we really lose.

Orel said...

Yes, Karina, you are a fool. A fool in love with the Dodgers!

Rob said...

Karina, you need help.

karina said...

Rob, that link is brilliant in different levels. Thank you very much!

karina said...

Orel, a fool in love that is.I know i'll care for this team 'till september comes to an end.

Orel said...

The Angels were on fire a couple of weeks ago. Still time for them to cycle to "hot" in time for the playoffs.

Orel said...

If anyone would say that, it would be you, Karina.

Orel said...

Okay, I have to take my leave of this support group. Commiserate amongst yourselves.

Eric Karros said...

Neeebs, should we email you the address to send the gloves back to, or do you already have it?
