Post-Game 5 Thread: The Real Dodgers of Los Angeles

ROCKIES 3, DODGERS 0

The real Dodgers showed up today, and they weren't lucky enough to play a team with crappy defense this time. The real Dodgers were led by Clayton Kershaw, who did his best, going six innings and allowing three runs, all earned. But the Dodgers lineup, featuring Tony Gwynn Jr. batting second, swung toothpicks all night.

The Rockies showed why they're favored to finish ahead of the Dodgers; Yo-lease Cha-seen outdueled Kershaw, allowing only five hits over seven innings. Troy Tulowitzki killed us (again), hitting a solo homer and playing his usual excellent defense. Chris Iannetta "Fish, then I-a-eat-a It" hit a solo homer of his own, and the Rockies added a completely superfluous run on a Jose Lopez RBI.

The real Dodgers are considerably less fun to watch than the team that just took three of four from the Giants. Which team will show up tomorrow?

Oh say it ain't so, Orel! We're not really THIS bad are we?

NicJ said...

I Hope ESPN doesnt dump Mychal Thompson, again.

Orel said...

Well, Karen, we can beat the bad teams but not the good ones. So I guess that makes us mediocre.

NicJ said...

At least they are losing quickly.

Joel Myers is the new SoSG LASORDA.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aha! It was you all along, Paul! Now you must attend every game and never post the lineup.

I am expecting Frank to file a lawsuit against me.

Speaking of ESPN dumping Mychal Thompson, "Max & Marcellus" is some TERRIBLE radio. Why did they get rid of Andrew and Mychal again?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Because 710's a bunch of idjits. It took them years to give the K Bros. their own show, and it's on Saturday afternoons.

NicJ said...

I'll tune in to max and Marcellus every morning to see if Mychal is filling in and then when hear he isn't I usually go back to my podcasts.

The new PD destroyed the station. The last thing LA wants to hear on a local sports talk radio station are douchebags from New York.

Steve Sax said...

Totally agree. Max and Marcellus is must-avoid radio. My ears start bleeding when I hear Max spouting off on some stupid insignificant topic, repeating his point endlessly.
