Game 150 Thread: Sept 19 vs. Rox, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (12-10, 2.85) vs. Jason Hammel (10-8, 4.45 ERA).

COMMENTS: Bit of a paradox today: Expectations couldn't be lower for the Dodgers, yet hopes couldn't be higher for Kershaw — especially after his last start, a CG shutout of the Giants. Tell you what, Clayton: Toss a perfect game today and we'll forgive the rest of the Dodgers' season. Deal?

Sax here. As a glutton for punishment, I'm heading back to the Stadium again today.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp batting second...interesting. KempKershaw is having a Kempgasm as we speak!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SADGASM RUUUUUULES

Greg Zakwin said...

I'll have you know Dusty that I have a Kempgasm EVERY DAY of EVERY WEEK.

Neeebs said...

I think that Kemp should have batted eighth more often this season.

Just a thought.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I wish I could have a Kempgasm more often.

karina said...

I'm going to think that Smack Talk in Game Threads is an expression of affection.

Mr. Customer said...

I would say so.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We mock because we care.

karina said...

RT @SI_JonHeyman sometimes, i think america's 2nd favorite sport, after football, is fantasy football

I dare to say some weirdos love more fantasy football than "real football".

Not that I know someone like that ;)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DON'T MOCK ME, KARINA

karina said...

@Mr LASF baby, you know I love you truly, madly, deeply, 'till the end of time!

karina said...

I was actually mocking myself but if you want to join me, you're more than welcome.

Spanky said...

Is there a baseball game today?


BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

David said...

FINALLY...Theriot is out of the #2 spot.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Eh, who cares.

rbnlaw said...

WHORES!!

Cowboys suck. Barely any of my picks are covering right now. Why do I join pools?

Spanky said...

I'm in a pool of my own blood right now.

karina said...

My quarterback is underperforming, I'm so benching him next week.Peterson is my new BFF, matando la liga!

karina said...

Spanky, at least your team is doing better than mine :(

Spanky said...

@ Karina

I'm regretting not being devious enough to make that trade for Peterson with you.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

Look at the score of my game. I'm getting bitch slapped back to Mexico and I'm American born and bred.

karina said...

One question, the Steelers D is so good that they have annulled my QB?

karina said...

Spanky, at least you have 5 players to play.You have hope. My QB is on NEGATIVE points and he's the only one I've got so I'm currently shopping the available quarterbacks.

Spanky said...

It's a combination of good Steeler D and a not so good Vince Young. I'm not sold on him.

karina said...

Thanks Spanky, now I'm freaking about my next week's QB and I have an excess of WR and RB. I can work a trade...it wouldn't hurt if I can get an extra kicker.

Mr. Customer said...

Watching the Bears at Cowboys, and getting a very "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" vibe from the giant alien spaceship scoreboard.

karina said...

The Professor is not winning, he's kicking Spanky all the way to the Malvines.

karina said...

Disclaimer: it's gonna take a while for me to trade, remember I'm new on this.

Spanky said...

*gives Karina the middle finger*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'll trade you Brett Favre, Karina.

Mr. Customer said...

I'd be willing to offer Carson Palmer for the right deal.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

I have a good back-up QB and my WR's suck. Let me think about it. I won't burn you. I'll do you right.

karina said...

Spanky, I didn't mean to insult you :(

karina said...

Favre bothers me, but we can work something Mr LASF.

I'll also contemplate Spanky's and Mr C's offers.

Spanky said...

I'm just being silly, K.

Mr. Customer said...

The Cowboys might be looking for another kicker soon, too.

Mr. Customer said...

Bears score!

Spanky said...

How bout dem Cowboys

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

MeanieBreanie said...

It might not hurt the Cowboy's to get a new coach. Unfortunately there are not many who are willing to be a puppet for Jones. Jimmy Johnson was the last one we had who had the balls to do his own thing.

Dusty Baker said...

"TJ Simers is a fat sack of shit!"

First words out of my mouth when I walked into my father in law's house here in OC. Didn't even say hi. Our conversation went downhill from there.

He'd been saving up a lot of vitriol for Broxton.

Spanky said...

@ MB

How bout dem Cowboys

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
Trash talk all you want but I'm still not giving up on them. Every dog has their day :D

Steve Sax said...

At the Stadium!

Spanky said...

@ Karina

My back up QB's stock is rising. You might pay dearly for a trade.

Spanky said...

@ MB

Unfortunately my dogs never left their house

Dusty Baker said...

Break it down live for us, Saxy!

MeanieBreanie said...

It's not over till it's over. Remember that anything can happen on any given day.

I have to leave folks. Dusty, stay exactly where you are. You are not allowed to move.

karen said...

Hi Everyone!!

I don't understand how the fantasy football works, but it looks like you are all having fun!

Spanky said...

@ Karen

It's a wild scene

@ Saxy

I give you props for being at the game. Got alot grit

karina said...

how good are the 49's? is it normal to feel hate agaisnt any SF team?

karen said...

C'mon Kid, settle down

Mr. Customer said...

Niner's are middle-of-the-road. I'm ambivalent about them.

karen said...

@Karina

For me, yes. I hate all teams in Frisco by virtue of my hate for the jints

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't really care about the 9ers.

Spanky said...

I hate the niners the same way I hate the giants

karina said...

I'm debating between wanting Kershaw doing his best and CarGo fighting for a hitting championship

Steve Sax said...

Padres losing 4-1, giants-brewers just started

Spanky said...

Anyone trust the veetle download from atdhe.net

karina said...

@Spanky I don't know what you're talking about but I watched the AC Milan game there yesterday.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

It wants me to download a veetle video player to watch the Ram game but I don't trust downloads.

karina said...

@Spanky I didn't need to download anything

Spanky said...

I should have used the Bronco D.

FUUUUUCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!

karina said...

Guest fashion Police commentary: I dig baby blue uniforms. Currently watching Angels-Rays

Steve Sax said...

I am done with Jay Gibbons

Spanky said...

@ Karina

Usually you don't but for some reason it does for this game. It did that to me the other day for the Dodger game too

karina said...

It's just the first inning, Rockies enjoy those runs, you won't score anymore.

NicJ said...

just checking in, did tulo hit another HR.

NicJ said...

@ spanky, veetle should be safe. its just a video streamer

karen said...

Atta way Dre!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ah who cares.

Spanky said...

Should I say it?


WANING GIBBONS

David said...

Mother of crap. I wanted Kershaw to finish the season with a ERA lower than 3.

NicJ said...

fuck you giants!!

NicJ said...

Kershaws ERA was the only thing i had left to root for.

David said...

Kershaw's ERA is going to get shot...great.

NicJ said...

well at least i can devote all of my time to football now.

Mr. Customer said...

Today's looking like elimination day.

Spanky said...

Ryan Matthews is done

karina said...

@Mr LASF 1:36 PM I care 'till the last out of the season

David said...

It's amazing that Kershaw has an ERA as low as he does with 3 outing allowing 6+ runs this year.

karina said...

He's that good, David

Steve Sax said...

Gibbons is soooooooo bad in left. Where is Manny?

Steve Sax said...

Gibbons is soooooooo bad in left. Where is Manny?

Spanky said...

The bloodbath continues

Spanky said...

I scored a point. Shonn Greene your my hero

Spanky said...

P.Ditty-100

Moi-22

Got a fat target on my back so bring the best you got and kick a man while he's down. I would.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm saving smack talk until after I've got at least as many wins as losses.

karina said...

6-2 now, Theriot RBI!

let's be patient and wait 'till they turn the table

karina said...

what are you talking about, Mr C? I think you're going to be the best team this week.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, you losers, lose so you can jump Houston.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Mr C is 35 points back of the Professor for most points.

karina said...

Admiral Ackbar collects a RBI and 75,000 dollars!

Spanky said...

Oh shit! we scored four runs. Did Dotel pitch?

David said...

Holy crap, are we actually staging a rally?

David said...

Don't strike out, Kemp.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp'd

David said...

Well, he didn't strike out.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I'm scoring plenty of points, but I still haven't won.

karina said...

suddenly Mr C, you just have give me a glimmer of hope. My score depends on the Saints D.

Paul is whooping my butt :(

Steve Sax said...

Wow, three runs that inning... Still 6-4 though

Spanky said...

Who has the chargers D? They are killing the Jags.

Spanky said...

KILL KILL KILL

karina said...

Bison is game!

karina said...

When was the last time Ethier and Kemp homered in the same game?

karina said...

Dotel in the mound, time to score some runs!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

In Dote's gameday pic he still has a Dodger cap.

Steve Sax said...

Things are so bad at Dodger Stadium, they've brought back the insipid hat shuffle.

Steve Sax said...

9-2 Giants, so they will re-take first

Spanky said...

Bean CarGo!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hah. The Dodger game is still going and nobody cares.

NicJ said...

this will cut our elimination number to 1?

karina said...

I care...but I can't say a thing

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We've already been eliminated from the Wild Card. A loss will cut the division number to one.

Mr. Customer said...

@nicj

No, I think this would be elimination.

karina said...

I'm in desperate need of a wake from the 2010 season :(

karina said...

Furcal doubles, there's hope!

NicJ said...

hey! a tie!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit, now how are we supposed to jump Houston? HOW?

NicJ said...

gibbons can redeem himself

Josh S. said...

Kemp?

karina said...

NEW GAME IN THE 9TH!

NicJ said...

remember last year when kemp scored from second on a sac bunt?

those were the days.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If you told me John Ireland was from Minnesota, I'd believe you.

Spanky said...

Oh Snap! Tied score

Spanky said...

eh.

Josh S. said...

YAY FREE LOUSY BASEBALL

Mr. Customer said...

Yech.

NicJ said...

free baseball with no more relievers left in the bullpen!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time for Ely to shine!

karina said...

Take one game at the time: isn't it great this game was 6-1?

karina said...

GIDP

*sigh*

NicJ said...

broxton is in.

Game over.

karina said...

I know you can do this, Brox

Spanky said...

Hell no Broxton again

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Here comes the go-ahead run.

Spanky said...

I'd like to order the Broxton with a Flat Breezy on the side.

karina said...

Brox allows Rancho Ardiendo

NicJ said...

god broxton sucks

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think most fans would choose Broxton out of all the core players to be traded.

karina said...

Brox just allowed three walks in 0.2 IP, if it wasn't for that magical GID, we might be losing the game

Spanky said...

He needs a shrink. It's all in his head.

karina said...

what if Brox pulls a Bills-alike comeback in 2011?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There's something wrong with his arm. He only hit 97 once during the entire inning.

Spanky said...

Bean CarGo for the loss

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Joe's just begging for a grand slam.

NicJ said...

they would probably be better just shutting him down for the year

Josh S. said...

WHERE IS YOUR MVP NOW?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Silly CarGo. Tips are for kids.

NicJ said...

¡SiĆ©ntate CarGo!

Spanky said...

Of Course Breezy comes in for the strikeout

Josh S. said...

He hit 97? It's a miracle!

NicJ said...

well he did hit 97 once, but it was a fastball for ball 4 so that hardly counts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You should call up DodgerTalk and say that, Nic. It would be a welcome breath of sanity on that otherwise drivel-infested show.

Ken included.

NicJ said...

ken is too busy calling Manny a poopie head.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That and making cracks about Sarah Palin.

Josh S. said...

Gameday totally skipped over Reed Johnson's single.

NicJ said...

remember when andre was the walk off king?

NicJ said...

cowards

Josh S. said...

Let's play "How will they blow this one?"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bases juiced for the guy batting .636 on the month. Yeah, that can't come back to bite you.

NicJ said...

just hit a HR Ellis!!

which for him is just a long fly ball.

Spanky said...

MANNYMANNYMANNYMANNY Oh wait.....

AJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJ

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm calling an Ellis walkoff, even though I want the Dodgers to lose.

NicJ said...

should have been ball four right there.

stupid ump

NicJ said...

that asshole tulo almost caught that.

NicJ said...

its nice to see the guys happy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I called it.

David said...

Could Ellis be better than Martin?

Spanky said...

Why are they celebrating like they won the world series *nods head*

Mr. Customer said...

A.J. Ellis, ladies and gentlemen!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ellis has as many walkoffs as Andre.

NicJ said...

elimination number still at 2!!

Mr. Customer said...

Survival counts for something.

karina said...

it's a walkoff! go Blue!

Dusty Baker said...

MLASF: "I'm calling an Ellis walkoff"

Well done, sir.

What is this strange, how you call it..."win" that you celebrate? Now you make party, right, according to custom?

karina said...

According to @bvenezolano in 1962, the Dodgers had the NL MVP (Maury Willis) and the NL CY (Don Drysdale) and they didn't make the playoffs

Dusty Baker said...

Singha beer for 5.99/six pack up in dis bish! - Dusty Baker

^ that's my song for the night ^

karina said...

we make party!

Beastie Boys- You Gotta Fight Your Right To Party

Paul said...

Dusting off the dust from harvest.

Apathetic about the Dodgers and pissed about the Rams. Wait that should be the other way around.

Josh S. said...

The LA County Fair is kind of of a crock.

Paul said...

Wow this really was AJ's weekend. Rushing for plus 150 and a walk off hit today.

NicJ said...

the petting zoo and dinosaur exhibit is cool

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Giants' offense looks awful.

Josh S. said...

All the animals in the petting zoo looked like they were ready to die from the heat.

NicJ said...

then they are just recycled to the food booths.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

You mean you hadn't played that Neil Young CD in awhile?

Dusty Baker said...

Nothing in the whole wide world could force me to go to a county fair.

NicJ said...

the giants run defense is terrible

NicJ said...

^ football

Mr. Customer said...

Son of a bitch, this game is going exactly the wrong way for me.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's Eli's only completion today.

Spanky said...

Eli's a freaking mess

Dusty Baker said...

You can say that again, Spank.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT
