Post-Game 49 Thread: NL's Worst Drops Bomb on Gassed Jansen

ASTROS 4, DODGERS 3

Clayton Kershaw was in line for the win, having allowed one run over six innings. The Dodgers were up 3-1 in the ninth and the Astros were down to their last out. But Kenley Jansen was strugging. (Take him out, Donnie!) Then a double steal put runners and second and third. (Take him out, Donnie!) Then the Astros tied the score on a Michael Bourn double. (Take him out, Donnie!) Too late. A HBP and a single later, and the Dodgers have lost to the NL's worst team.

when you're at the bottom, the only way out is upside, right? RIGHT?

We suck giant donkey balls.

I hate this team. Almost as much as Thomas Pynchon hates cameras.

Spank said...

Ummm..Who's the N.L. worst?

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

I hope Kershaw just beats the fuck out of Janson with a wet towel loaded with soap.

Then dry humps him.

karina said...

@Dusty I'm afraid it is Mattingly's fault as much as Jansen's

Fucking Broxton.

karina said...

guess we really need Belisario :(

^ Not a status update, Dusty.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

When you have a team full of shit, it's tough to blame the manager for choosing a particular kind of shit.

Dusty Baker said...

I ain't mad at Mattingly. He can only deal with what he has, which is a weak bullpen to begin with that's now depleted by injury and overcome with ineffectiveness. It's not like he left Janson in too long even though he had Mariano fucking Rivera warmed up in the pen. Ultimately it's the blame of the players who aren't doing their damn job.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

Nice one, Josh.

Thunder pulling a Dodgers.

Jason said...

That ruined a perfectly nice stroll around neighborhood in the last of the sunshine. Blerg, indeed.

Changing subjects, I expect to be at the Nats' park on Labor Day to watch the Isoto- err, Dodgers play. Dusty, Sax (et al.), hit me up in the off chance you'll be in or around the District then.

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

Will def keep that in mind. I'm scheded for a trip there over the 4th of July weekend, taking in two games.

Dusty Baker said...

Dirk was getting raped. Bout time they called the foul.

Josh S. said...

Barring a spectacular 10-game winning streak, we are dunzo.

Dusty Baker said...

At least we have the Suck Dividend. Tickets are easy to come by and the price point is plummeting. On the flip side, you actually have to watch this rabble of shite.

Free basketball!

If I cancel my direct tv extra innings now can I salvage some money?

Love Hurts - Nazareth

Pinche Dodgers - Flaming Menudos.

Dusty Baker said...

15 point lead with 4 and a half to play for Thunder, and they blow it? Wow. I thought I was having a bad sports night.

Steve Sax said...

Durant and Westbrook must feel like Kershaw and Bills

Dusty Baker said...

More like Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens.

Paul said...

Ritchieeeeeeee!

Josh S. said...

I'm going to absolve Kenley (especially after going 3-0 to two batters and battling back to strike them out), and instead focus my wrath on Dioner for sitting on his ass during the double steal.

Paul said...

Yeah I never thought he would be caught asleep behind a plate.

Paul said...

It ain't over till' it's over- Lenny Kravitz.

Oh it is over.

Why did I go to bed early last night. Did I see this coming?
