Game 132 Thread: August 30 vs. Phillies, 7p

Hiroki Kuroda (9-11, 3.56) vs. Roy Halladay (16-9, 2.22).

COMMENTS: Halladay! Celebrate! We-are-going-to-get-our-ass-kicked. The Dodgers came through on the Weisman-mandated four-game win streak, and now they're clean out of winnin' for the season. Just in time for the McCourts' divorce trial! Does this team have its timing down or what?

UPDATE from Sax 4:58p: Looks like Ken Levine of Dodger Talk has taken over dodgers.com! How else to explain comedic headlines like this:

Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha!

NicJ said...

Jason said...

I blame the dolt with the beach ball.

Steve Sax said...

I fucking hate Shane Victorino!!!

karina said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

that SOB

NicJ said...

now hiro can lose the lead.

Dusty Baker said...

No, Werth did exactly what anyone would do on that play. Can't blame him for anything.

karen said...

I hate Shane Victorino

David said...

Eff you, Victorino.

NicJ said...

just hit ruiz in the head and we will call it even.

Steve Sax said...

But Vin's right, it was a clean hit.

Well, so it goes.

Keep up the good work, Hiro!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now we bring in the bullpen to blow the game.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to chop Victorino's tiny penis off and choke him with it.

karina said...

@NicJ On the slide? or just in general?

we can go "just in general"

NicJ said...

are there beat LA chants?

Fred's Brim said...

if "the fightins" shows up again, so help me...

karina said...

Hmmm, why don't we make an offer to Victorino that he can't refuse?

Dusty Baker said...

Werth was also a good sportsman after and went over to pat Theriot on the arse and say good play man (or whatever he said to him).

Now, back to hating Jaysen Werth.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm facing the Professor on Week 8, so that likely would have been a loss anyway.

Fred's Brim said...

damn ump. If the no-hitter was still going, he would have called that

Dusty Baker said...

There were some Beat LA chants. Our boys will take care of them in the parking lot later.

NicJ said...

im gonna make a trip on down to DS and start knifing anyone in red.

NicJ said...

CHOOOOOOCHHHH

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HAHAHA TAKE THAT RUIZ YOU FAT BASTARD HAHAHAHAA

Steve Dittmore said...

Really Torre?

NicJ said...

great now the na'vi is up to bat.

Meaniebreanie said...

Come on Hiro, just one more out!

David said...

Strikeout! Suck it, Phils.

NicJ said...

wow, what an ovation.

Jason said...

STOOPID TORRE TAKE HIROKI OUT OF GAME WITH ONE HITTER! NOW WE LOSE!

Fred's Brim said...

why the HELL are they playing Don't Stop Believing now?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So who's pitching now? Kuoseph?

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Pick me up on the way to DS. *pulls down ski mask*

Steve Sax said...

Hiroki rocks.

He is singlehandedly helping me feel proud about the Dodgers again.

Jason said...

In honor of HiKu:

Out pitch Halladay
Make LA forget Manny
Fuck Victorino

MR. F said...

AWWWWWW

NicJ said...

ill pick you up on my motorcycle with the sidecar and we can just go mad max on everyones ass.

Fred's Brim said...

i like him too, Saxy. I hope we can sign him next year

NicJ said...

SUCK IT PHILZ!!

Fred's Brim said...

Hiroki could have done that

Steve Dittmore said...

@MRLASF - Why you think I'm going to beat you in Week 8? My team is meh. I'm losing to Karina in Wk 1.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm never not proud to be a Dodger, for the record.

NicJ said...

if kuroda wants to stay in the US, im sure he will be in dodger blue.

karina said...

I'm against the Professor on week one, so I predict a "so long and thanks for the fish"

cc Dusty and Mr C

Dusty Baker said...

That reminds me of a haiku I wrote way back when:

There once was a team from L.A.,
Who into October will play;
We'll whip the Yank-mes fo shizzle
Or cause the BoSox to fizzle
Fuck you Shane Victorino!

NicJ said...

thanks for the fish?

tee hee

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You've got some great players like Rodgers, Wells, Johnson and Crabtree.

Fred's Brim said...

i can picture Dusty in the sidecar wildly swinging a tubesock filled with doorknobs at anybody who looks like a Phillie fan

Dusty Baker said...

Did you just drop a Douglas Adams reference, Karina?

Jason said...

Rhyming shizzle with fizzle. I like it!

karina said...

@Steve Sax @Dusty always proud of being a Dodger fan. I don't only bleed Dodger blue, my DNA is Dodger blue (and orange and black for Aguilas and rossonera for the AC Milan)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID JOE HE'S GOING TO LET KUO PITCH THE NINTH THEN HIS ARM WILL FALL OFF

Dusty Baker said...

I will make myself puke on Phiwwy fans once Nic drives me in the sidecar. Then I will tase some bitches, too.

Fred's Brim said...

so who drafted Rudy Ruettiger?

Steve Dittmore said...

@MRLASF - I had a good draft position. Andre Johnson is the man.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker yes, i did

Fred's Brim said...

@DB what have you been eating, ie what will be your ammo?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I had Andre on my team two years ago and he was incredible. Really the most overlooked WR in the league. I hope for the day the Texans become relevant just so people can see him play.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker @NicJ I could be the bait, put together an act of a damsel in distress and then we get them, one by one :)

Paul said...

I hate when arms fall off.

I hate Victorino.

At least Ruiz didn't kill us.

karina said...

Who was the one who wanted Edwards?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So how many of us regain our hope if the Dodgers sweep the Phillies? Y'know, just on the off-chance it happens?

karina said...

I never lose hope.

Josh S. said...

Checking back in.

DAMN YOU CRYIN' HAWAIIAN!

Jason said...

What is this hope thing of which you speak?

Fred's Brim said...

not enough (or too much) time has passed to say you are a fan of The Rock

Jason said...

What's with the tape stuck to the 'L' on the front of Romero's jersey?

karina said...

hope springs eternal, I like that

Dusty Baker said...

Howard just looks out of sorts. I know he's hurt, but wow.

Steve Dittmore said...

Only way I get hope back is if Dodgers run the table this week. Sweeping Phillies nice. Sweeping Phillies & Giants is necessary.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Romero's pitching to Kemp? You're funeral, Uncle Chollie.

Spanky said...

Fuck That! I demand a recount on the draft.

Jason said...

Note to Prime Ticket production staff: Do not show a panning shot of a sparse crowd while Vin announces an obviously inflated attendance number.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

I like your plan. Sneaky

@FB

Steamed chicken dumplings, chicken chow mein, hot and sour soup, Pacifico.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Okay, maybe our funeral. Damn, Kemp, that was pathetic.

Fred's Brim said...

Chad Moriyama has me watching Matty stepping back on his stride

Dusty Baker said...

That Kemp AB should be friggin illegal it was so bad.

We should hire some hitting coach who used to be really good himself.

Steve Dittmore said...

Oh, Dusty... the Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Ale is smooth. I recommend it.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB ooh baby that's a ripe combo for your barf barrage!

karina said...

Hiro pitched that way to give a gift to the Sons :)

Josh S. said...

@FB from earlier:

It seemed as if they started Don't Stop Believin' accidentally and then had to just go with it.

Oddly enough, it ended up being a pretty fitting place to play it, despite being up by 3.

Fred's Brim said...

don't do this to me, HCK, please

Meaniebreanie said...

FB - Hang in there. All is well. (MB has bottle of Slivovitz on standby for you in the event of an emergency).

Paul said...

This team from Philly bores me. Who is next?

Fred's Brim said...

way to finish that off!

NicJ said...

SUCK IT PHILZ!!!!

Jason said...

Well, that was a pleasant surprise.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

It will be a complete and total barf-o-rama.

Josh S. said...

OMG WE BEAT ROY HALLADAY

WE'RE COMING FOR YOU NEXT ROY KENDRICK AND ROY OSWALT

Paul said...

Suck it Victorino.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Make party!

karina said...

we make party!

Dusty Baker said...

Who is this piece of shit Roy Halladay? Can we play you every night?

karen said...

Party time!!!

karina said...

Dancing Queen-ABBA

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!!!

Hiroki Kuroda Rocks!

Mr. Customer said...

We make party?

Meaniebreanie said...

Time to party. What's the special tonight at the SoSG bar? I'm getting bored with Sauvignon Blanc.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Paul said...

Kuroda will struggle in Boston.


Bring me a Taiwanese mimosa!!
