Post-Game 62 Thread: Rubby Dee Kemp

Rubby hurls.

DODGERS 6, PHILLIES 2

Rubby De La Rosa started wilder than Snooki on an absinthe bender, walking five of the first eleven batters he faced. But the Phillies only squeezed out one run in the early going, and De La Rosa settled down. The sticklike Dee Gordon delivered, going 3 for 5 with a run and a stolen base. And — who else? — Matt Kemp provided the insurance with a two-run bomb in the eighth. Kemp is currently tied with Jay Bruce for the NL lead with 17 home runs, and he leads the NL with 50 RBI.

Matt Kemp is a golden god.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Robby beats Oswalt. Nice.

Neeebs said...

Kemp is better than Hemp.

Steve Sax said...

I wouldn't go that far.

But Kemp is better than Shemp.

And, according to Steve Lyons, Andre Ether is a Gold Glover.

That leaves:

* Golden Footed Dee Gordon
* Gold Armed Rubby De La Rosa
* Gold Plated Dinner
* Golden Sombrero Loney
* Golden Beard Blake

There is a golden reference for Urine as well but I'm too afraid of having to explain it to karina to use it here.

Orel needs to be a big ol' crankypants in every GT post from now on. It was good luck.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh: so what you're saying is, angry Orel is good Orel. Right?

Steve Sax said...

Maybe we should have make-up Orel do the next GT.

Didn't see the game guys. Did we lose by a lot?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good showing by the Heat, considering LeBron couldn't play tonight.

Oh wait, he played? What the hell?

Dusty Baker said...

I think you meant "!TIMMAD" Paul.

Stupid alphabet puts Bruce and Fielder before Kemp. Stupid letters.
