Game 128 Thread: August 23 @ Cards, 5p

Clayton Kershaw (15-5, 2.60) vs. Kyle Lohse (11-7, 3.33).

Boy, the Cardinals must be ticked. They need to gain ground on the Brewers, and who else comes rolling into down but the slow, fat Dodgers? Easy pickins. But Tony La Russa brings in about three relievers too many and the Dodgers escape with a 2-1 victory. And today they start Cy Young candidate Clayton Kershaw. Are the Dodgers in danger of winning a series in St. Louis?

What's the extra s for, MLAAC?

Paul said...

Who is going to make the last out of the game now???? Stupid Ned.

Mr. Customer said...

Can I get that to-go?

Paul said...

I wish Sellers first name was Tom.

Mr. LA Assasssins Czar said...

I am the czar of all assassins.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Wait...

DAMMIT.

Josh S. said...

The czar of typos.

Spank Horst said...

Niekro can't even spell right.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Bang.

MR.F said...

Haha.

MR.F said...

I thought the extra S was for "SSTFU or I will kill you."

Neeebs said...

I don't see anything wrong with three consecutive letters in a name.

Josh S. said...

You wooouldn't.

QuadSevens said...

I'd prefer quad S's.

Fernie V said...

I guess I should give up hope. AJ Ellis is trying out for next year.

Josh S. said...

Philosophical differences? Best DFA reasoning EVER.

"My philosophy is 'Don't be terrible' and Dioner and I just couldn't see eye to eye on that."

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Navarro: I should be starting everyday.
Mattingly: You suck. Be thankful that the other catcher on the team sucks too; otherwise you'd be on the bench everyday.
Navarro: I don't suck!
Mattingly: Why don't you get your ass out of here?
Navarro: I have a medical condition!

Ian Desmond becomes badge #200.

Neeebs said...

MR.F said...

HAWT HAWT HAWT

MR.F said...

5-0!

MR.F said...

7-0! Go team!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Oh, it looks good!

Josh S. said...

So, Dioner was an albatross?

Jason said...

Kershaw 8K badge unlocked. I actually had to double check the box score because that didn't sound totally out of the realm of possibilities despite it only being 10 outs into the game. Alas, the badge system wrong. For now.

Jason said...

It's a homer-fest.

Dusty Baker said...

What the FUCK is going on???

11-0

Steve Sax said...

11-0! Wow

Dusty Baker said...

Dinner got DFA'd?

(I've been out of baseball loop all day.)

Dusty Baker said...

KKKKKKK

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not going to get that coveted Kyle Lohse badge tonight, am I?

Steve Sax said...

You're a lohser baby

So why don't you kill me

Dusty Baker said...

Bang!

Dusty Baker said...

Check that..I actually already had a Lohse pogbadge. I'll trade it with someone...

DodgersKings323 said...

Why the hell do you guys keep moving shit on the right side!!??


>_>

Spank Horst said...

Tea and cookies anyone?

Dusty Baker said...

I'd like some tea.

Dusty Baker said...

Shards: shit-tea

Dusty Baker said...

Hawksworth is going to blow the 11-run lead, isn't he?

Dusty Baker said...

Was anyone else listening to the radio broadcast tonight? Monday and Steiner went on for about 20 minutes about Whitey Herzog. I nearly ran my car off a bridge. Oh my god, why don't they just fucking start a radio station and talk about Whitey Herzog on that station?

Dusty Baker said...

We're winning, BTW, people. Come back to the GT!

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

Skip Schumaker pitching!

DodgersKings323 said...

Assassins Czar, curious why you like the Saints.
Usually it goes Rams, Raiders, Chargers, 49ers or some type of bandwagonning like the Steelers...

Josh S. said...

I'm just mad they threw Dotel at us and we didn't score 11 more.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Hey, we're the team that's supposed to send the light-hitting infielder to pitch when the bullpen's exhausted!

Dusty Baker said...

Aaron Miles is going to take one out of here now.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK! I swear I was hitting send before he actually did that.

Josh S. said...

Hilarity.

Dusty Baker said...

Miles tied with Steve Lyons for all time HRs (19).

Dusty Baker said...

Hilarity, not at our expense!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Happy retirement, Tony.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

@DK323 - I like the Saints because I once played a round of golf with Tom Benson.

DodgersKings323 said...

Seriously, thanks for reminding me, not only is it obvious the guy doesn't know much about baseball........but he was never any good as a player so how did he get this gig? Then with those insensitive comments he's made in the past how did he stick around? There are a lot of people asleep at the wheel in this franchise. Do any of them listen to the away games and cringe at these guys? I heard Lyons is only who he is because he dropped his pants during a game back in the day....

Dusty Baker said...

ERA 11.02 for Kuo. So worthy of a bobblehead!

Steve Sax said...

post-game thread UP

DodgersKings323 said...

A few weeks ago i could have gotten $5 for my Kuo bobble......now i don't even see 1 big on ebay for them..maybe i can give it away at the protest?
