Post-Game 125 Thread: Dempster Dumps Dodgers

You may be sad,
but Vince Vaughn is happy.
And isn't that
all that matters?

CUBS 3, DODGERS 1

3 hits off a guy who has a 4 ERA this year.

Think about that dodgers.

Dusty Baker said...

We needed Wolf in the three hole today.

Nic j said...

hopefully loney will go nuts in Colorado like he usually does.

Paul said...

F$@) Vince Vaughn and F@:$ Jim Tracy and while I am at it F&$) the Giants for going into the 6th with a no hitter and losing.

Dusty Baker said...

Vince Vaughn is a bloated piece of unfunny shit.

chexxum said...

What's up with Vince Vaughn's thumb?

Nic j said...

hey Vince has a club thumb like Megan Fox!!

Dusty Baker said...

ESPN having technical problems with Joe Morgan's mic during the Sunday Night Baseball broadcast.

No truth to the rumor that I have hacked ESPN and am controlling the sound feeds.

Wolf is our best hitter right now. Be afraid.

I'm not entirely sure Coors is even the answer for this lifeless bunch, but we'll see.

Man, one loss and everybody's back to being depressed again. (Admittedly, it was an ugly loss.)

They've taken 10 of 12 against the Rockies this year! 2 of those were against the "new" Rockies! Plus Randy Wolf is going to get a chance to hit at Coors!

This is the week they put it in the bank. Book it!

Optimism! Catch the wave!

Orel said...

Did Karina hack Josh's account?

Bayareadfan said...

Could care less about the loss, I don't think anyone is upset about a 3-1 series, which is actually a great outcome, but it's the terrible effort the team put out on the field today that is disappointing.

This was Dempster's best pitched game so far this season, that is if you don't count the other time he 3 hit us, and we didn't score. Everyone else seems to hit him fine.

Dusty Baker said...

Rox just picked up Ortiz .

Bayareadfan said...

Well, that's some good news. Even better news if he's going in the 2nd game in the series against us.

Nic j said...

I'd be lying if i said i wasn't a little happy to see Colorado's rotation take a bit of an injury hit. Call me a bad sport but i'm desperate.

Is it a good thing or a bad thing that we are running through Col's weak part of the rotation?

Dusty Baker said...

@ NicJ-

I think that makes you Sportsman of the Year!

To your point about who we're facing in the Col pitching rotation, why do middling to poor pitchers tend to turn into Cy friggin' Young when they face us?

Nic j said...

Beats me DB.

So we will get Hammel who has a 7.02 Era at Coors, Fogg who is a their Weaver, and De La Rosa who gave up 6 ER IN 6 INN. So in theory we should be pretty good, right?

Does this mean i have to root for Zito tomorrow? Ugh.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Didn't know Vaughn was there. I did see Billy Crystal, if that means anything. Ugly game, and an even uglier sunburn. Remind me never to get seats on the first-base side, no matter what. Cubs fans made the experience even more miserable.

Dusty Baker said...

I have to say that the Cubs fans in yesterday's game were some of the most despicable supporters I've come across in a long time. Generally I'm not bothered by them, but they were in particularly foul form during this home stand.

1908!

KempKershaw said...

I can't believe it took this long for someone to criticize Manny's atrocious defense today. I realize that's not his forte, but shit, it was worse than ever* today.

*Ever being since he came to LA. On the bright side, at least he didn't play cut-off man today.

Bayareadfan said...

Re Dempster again. It's more correct to say he's a 4.50 ERA pitcher than a 4 ERA pitcher. Considering we're the only ones who can't hit him for shit this year, we're the only reason he is at 4 and not 4.5.

Ugly stat department: aside from Kemp and Blake, our offense from the other guys (not counting Wolf) this series was 12/75, .160. Way to knock the crap out of it boys.

Fred's Brim said...

No doubt that the Dingers will win today, just to set up the "3 game series, 3 games back" scenario

karina said...

@Orel I didn't hack anything, Josh is just very happy.

Team starts a crucial series this week against the Rocosos (this superstition is working) on a bad offensive moment but maybe Coors Field is a good location to end slumps. Give these guys some credit, please.

Paul said...

I am trying to cheer myself up by figuring that the Dodgers are 6 and 1/2 games up in the Wild Card standings.
