Game 89 Thread: July 7 vs. Mets, 7p

Want tonight's Andre Ethier throwback bobblehead for $5? Click here and buy a ticket before 6PM!

Clayton K. (8-4, 3.23) vs. Dillon G. (8-2, 3.47).

The intrepid Dodgers go for a season-high six-game losing streak tonight while also looking to hand the Mets a four-game sweep. But that will only happen if the bats can continue to not show up, as Kershaw figures to keep the Mets in check in his last start before the All-Star Game. The Mets are weakened without Jose Reyes, David Wright and Ike Davis, but despite that handicap, the Dodgers will push hard to come through with another loss.

Sax's note: SoSG Alex Cora and I will be at tonight's game, field level, third base side. As usual, leave a comment in the thread and ping us with an email if you want to grab a beer or four!

Marla World Peace said...

Whoa.

Jason said...

Obviously, the numbers in Marla's lineup do not correspond to the expected number of adult beverages to be consumed by the respective commenter during this game.

Jason said...

Well, maybe for Dusty.

Marla World Peace said...

They are the respective rankings indicating who is the most likely to streak during a game, with one being the lowest and nine being the highest.

I'm as surprised with Spank's standing as the rest of you.

MR.F said...

Are you saying that I'm the Urine of the lineup?

(cries)

World B. Dusty said...

Four beers? (cries)*

*for fiscal reasons

Mr. Customer said...

*streaks*

World B. Dusty said...

I think that's a fairly accurate prediction for both beverages consumed and likelihood to streak.

Mr. Customer said...

So long as there is no limitation on adult beverage volume, I will concur.

World B. Dusty said...

One is only limited by one's 401(k) early withdrawal penalties, Mr. C.

Jason said...

That is why I am building my retirement fund in a 401(cocktail) account.

Mr. Customer said...

The ever-prudent gin-heavy investment strategy.

NicJ said...

3rd base line, field level.

You'll never find me.

NicJ said...

I can see Roberto from my seat.

Steve Sax said...

We can see you, NicJ.

Keep your hands off that woman's breasts.

Steve Sax said...

NicJ, I'm wearing a Dodgertown shirt.

Josh S. said...

That's right! I'm cleanup, bitches!

*strikes out looking*

*cries*

Marla World Peace said...

I'd take it, but I know we'd just give it right back.

Marla World Peace said...

There's a game in this commenter-lineup stuff, I just know it.

karen said...

The Kid is pitching, so maybe we'll take the road less traveled and keep this one in the bank.

karina said...

epale everyone!

karina said...

three innings and Gee already has 6 Ks, stinkin' badge :(

karina said...

Jason, I LOVE you avatar

in another news,we're winning! sucky run but I'll take it

karen said...

Epale Sistah!!

karina said...

epale sistah! :)

karina said...

*streaks out with RISP BUT makes a great defensive play*

Steve Sax said...

Clayton is dealing tonight

NicJ, where are you?

Steve Sax said...

Queueing for a beer. The lines are interminable.

Time for Angry Birds.

Fernie V said...

I hate victorputo

Fernie V said...

How is the crowd Saxy?

Steve Sax said...

New logistics idea for Dodger Stadium

Guy #1: pours beers non-stop

Guy #2: works register

Throughput increases 3x

Incremental revenues pay for incremental labor in first half-hour

Sax takes 2% royalty for idea

Steve Sax said...

Hey Fernie. Crowd is ornery. It's a humid nIght, the game is still tense, and they must have run out of bobbleheads (at those discount prices) because there are empty-handed people walking on the concourse offering $25 for a bobblehead.

I'm still stuck in a beer line.

Fernie V said...

just lost my live look-in how is kemp doing.

karina said...

Bison, Urine!

Fernie V said...

Yeah! Go Baby Go

karina said...

it's awesome when your first bat hets on base with no outs...

Fernie V said...

Come on Loney wake UP!

Josh S. said...

*rubs eyes*

WHAAAAAAAAA???

Josh S. said...

Shitty call, but Loney wouldn't have done anything anyway.

Josh S. said...

Hah!

Fernie V said...

We've got life folks, we should ask the boys is there really is a heaven.

Orel said...

Looks like the Mets are running into some...

double trouble.

YEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

Fernie V said...

Double D's are my favorite

karina said...

@Fernie of course it is! it's Dodger blue for sure! (though this season feels like purgatory or hell, depending how much of an optimist you are)

Fernie V said...

We've got wood, repeat
We've got wood.

Fernie V said...

It's turning Karina, I can feel it.

I got chills and they're multiplying

Josh S. said...

Huh? Gameday says "Dioner Navarro triple" but it's not followed by "cheeseburger."

karina said...

was it true? a Navarro triple? did he need some oxygen when he got to third?

Fernie V said...

the outfielders must of crashed into each other.

karina said...

I love the way you think, Fernie

Josh S. said...

Hey, when did they stop showing GBA on TV?

Not that I'm complaining.

Steve Sax said...

Josh S, you have just won Comment of the Night.

Please report to the Top Deck for your prize.

Paul said...

6 runs tonight 5 runs total this weekend.

Josh S. said...

Woooooooo!!!

Josh S. said...

Our starting rotation after the break should be:

Clayton Kershaw
Kerton Clayshaw
Layton Cershawk
K. Aylton Wachers
Hawclay Tonkers

There can be hilarious fake mustaches involved.

Josh S. said...

Holy shit, this crowd!

KID K!!!!!

Josh S. said...

*cries*

*in a good way*

Josh S. said...

That right there? Favorite moment of the season, hands down.

DelinO said...

I was cursing the names of all the gods for making me have to work tonight. Mets. Ethier Brooklyn Bobble.

Now I realize it was merely a test.

Nice to see one of my teams do well. Why couldn't it have been against the F'ing Giants?

Orel said...

Josh R. RTs Josh S!

Josh S. said...

KJ's killing my buzz, man.

Josh S. said...

Unleash the Hunchy Crow!

Fernie V said...

two more comments and we get a 68, which is better then 69. Ok one now

Paul said...

Go ahead and make party!

Spank said...

69!

World B. Dusty said...

Just got back from the Yard. It was December 63 one might say. Amazing. Sold out night, electric crowd. Beautiful night at Chavez Ravine. Fuck the haters for boycotting. Support the players and workers.

That is all.

Fernie V said...

it looked packed,

World B. Dusty said...

No PGT tonight? (cries)

Sorry I missed you guys tonight, Sons. I was a man of the people and didn't have access to you bourgeois types.

Steve Sax said...

Post-Game Thread finally up. This was a game for the ages. Wow.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry I missed you too Dusty!
