Game 118 Thread: August 13 vs. Astros, 7p

Twenty thousand of these posters will be given away at Dodger Stadium tonight.

Clayton Kershaw (13-5, 2.79) vs. Wandy Rodriguez (8-8, 3.52).

Cody Freakin' Ransom? After Clayton Kershaw's last ignominious start, he'll be looking to throw darts against the 'Stros tonight. Is it time to get off the schneid? You bet.

Boiling some Ballparks,Vinny!

Josh S. said...

Hey Josh!

Paul said...

Meanwhile back on the farm: our new defensive prospect catcher just let a ball get away for a run and let a man steal a base uncontested.

Josh S. said...

BUT HE'S A LEADER.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

He's certainly fit to lead the Dodgers.

Fernie V said...

Hey spank never seen that, kinda gay though.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This place is really jumping.

Fernie V said...

Looks like a good crowd

Fernie V said...

Sounds like a small crowd in tv

Fernie V said...

I hate these next two innings so I am walking the dog.

Steve Sax said...

That Kershaw squeeze highlight was pretty cool.

4-0 Dodgers, top 6

Paul said...

Okay our catching prospect is saving Ely's ass right now.

Fernie V said...

Holy shit these guys look like us making mistakes after mistake. I always thought the ball just wasn't bouncing our way.

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry for posting using the mobile version Sax but I can't get Safari to work at all at this point.

Just bought 2 Sam Adams froom room service bc there's no mini bar and I still have several innings left to watch.

Fernie V said...

What kind of Sam Adams?

rbnlaw said...

18 comments and we are in the 7th??

What the hell?

Steve Sax said...

Rivera gets his 16th RBI in his 24th game.

Wow.

Rivera may go down in Colletti's Dodger history as his third-best move (behind the Ethier steal and the Ramirez pickup).

Steve Sax said...

6-0 Dodgers

Fernie V said...

I Iike Rivera and thank him for doing well since we acquired him. But I hope Ned doesn't sign him for next year as our permanent left fielder.

Steve Sax said...

still stuck at 329 badges btw, and I've already earned all three potential Dodgers badges from tonight's game

Steve Sax said...

Rancho Ardiendo for the Dodgers! Two out, bottom seven, up 6-0, and Tony Gwynn at the plate.

Steve Sax said...

@rbnlaw: I don't know about you, but i was at the beach all day.

And I'm burnt to a crisp, my friend.

And dehydrated.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Tony. Now you're only 3-for-4 tonight.

On to the eighth, Dodgers up 6-0

Dusty Baker said...

Jason Borgeois needs to hang out with the proletariat more. He's lost touch with his roots.

rbnlaw said...

With Rivera getting another rbi that Loney would nothave received, I offer the following;

the 2012 Dodger opening day line up
(after many beers and a decent cigar)
Gordon SS
Sellers 2B
Ethier RF
Kemp CF
Rivera 1B
Sands LF
Blake 3B (is he signed through 2012?)
Barajas/Ellis C
Kershaw P

Not so bad, but I'd spend my off-season looking for a bat at 1B.

Dusty Baker said...

@FV

Straight up Sammy. I had a couple of Sam October drafts in Dallas, then a lingering Sam Summer in The hot bar. Now a regular one. I can't keep the seasons straight!

Dusty Baker said...

Can't hate that RBN.

rbnlaw said...

Sax:
I live close enough to the beach to stay away.

I'm not dehydrated either. . .yet.

Dusty Baker said...

I might drink a little more than I should toniiiiiiight.

Fernie V said...

Had some Sam Adams light earlier today and I am got a summer ale in Yhe fridge waiting for me.

rbnlaw said...

DB,
If we go with the youth movement, I can't entirely hate it.


Unlike the Arsenal youth movement that never seems to move.


*cries*

Fernie V said...

Still looks crappy to me Rbn.

Fernie V said...

Game blouses

rbnlaw said...

We make party. . .sort of!

Spank Horst said...

My pants look crappy too.

rbnlaw said...

Fernie,

Can't hate it totally. This line up needs power to protect Ethier and Kemp.
The rotation in the next 3 years might me one of the best in baseball.


Could also be one of the most disappointing.

Fernie V said...

I cant but It looks like a third place team

rbnlaw said...

40 and out, bishes!

Fernie V said...

Fox southwest guys say kershaw Has such a crappy group behind him that he should win the cy young.

Steve Sax said...

post-game thread up.

get some sleep boys and girls, and i'll see you here tomorrow morning

Paul said...

That 2012 lineup will make a great third place team.

Dusty Baker said...

45 and how sweet it is

Dusty Baker said...

Correction: meant "the hotel bar"

I was not in fact at a place called "The hot bar"
