Game 134 Thread: August 30 vs. Padres, 7p

It's not so bad, O-Dog. All right, it is so bad.

Hiroki Kuroda (10-14, 2.92) vs. Tim Stauffer (8-10, 3.42).

While Clayton Kershaw keeps making his case for the Cy Young, let's not overlook Hiroki Kuroda, who's quietly having his best season as a Dodger. The Dodgers have won four of his past five starts, and he's suddenly in double digits in wins. Does Ned Colletti try to sign Kuroda in 2012? Even if he's running the Cubs?

Sax's note (4:36p): Turns out Orel and I will be going to the game tonight, field level, right behind home plate. Holler if you'd like to grab a beer.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Kuroda won't follow Ned to Chicago, there's no way. Kuroda is a California guy.

Will Ned give up plucking former Giants when he's in Chicago, and start signing former Dodgers?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

DBT's right. It's LA, Japan, or retirement for Kuroda when September ends.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, Orel forgot to mention that he and I will be at the game tonight. Field level, this time...if you're there, holler.

Orlando Zepeda said...

Will you make it to AT&T in a couple weeks?

Orlando Zepeda said...

and by weeks, I mean next week

Steve Sax said...

WSJ Accuscore only has us at 51% winner odds tonight...

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Jon Heyman is really confusing me.

Josh S. said...

@MLAAC: Twitter has apparently ruined the phrase, "I don't follow" as a means of saying you don't understand what a person is saying.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Does Heyman know that's what I meant? Is he just yanking my chain? Or does he sincerely think I don't want to follow him on Twitter anymore?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Okay, now everything's clear.

Fred's Brim said...

good job, Matty

Padres finally remembering what teams did to Adrian Gonzales

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

The San Francisco Giants, pinnacle of baseball ethics

This place is quiet, especially after last night.

Fernie V said...

I got my first badge today.
I have four stinkin badges.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

That knee's getting better any day.

Josh S. said...

Runseses!

Fernie V said...

Swing at the first three Beast, go for it.

Fernie V said...

Smart matt don't listen to me.

Fernie V said...

I feel like I am watching Tin Cup.

Josh S. said...

Did he just say "What the fuck do you want me to do?"

I would think "Throw a strike" would be the answer to that question.

Josh S. said...

Bitch all you want, Knee Boy!!!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

It just gets better and better!

Steve Sax said...

Well, this was a good game to attend...

Josh S. said...

We're still in the 2nd?!!

Josh S. said...

Vin is annoyed.

Fred's Brim said...

I think all the walks broke my internet. I started working again for the top of the 3rd but I missed the entire 2nd

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Hiro
quit effing around, these are the Padres

Fred's Brim said...

Dre gliding on that knee

SD broadcast is showing Don Newcombe talking to Dave Winfield in the stands

Fred's Brim said...

the SD announcers are talking about Wham!

Fred's Brim said...

there's nothing else to talk about really

Fernie V said...

"Take me dancing tonight", how did everyone not guess he was gay with that song and those dance moves.

Fred's Brim said...

he was definitely very happy

Fred's Brim said...

Buckner is determined to make this a long game

call a strike, chump!

Fred's Brim said...

I don't think Loney even got off the ground on that one

Fred's Brim said...

haha great double play!
attaboy Matty!

Josh S. said...

I think we're all in awe of Kemp's MVPness.

Orlando Zepeda said...

Bison assist? all Yahoo says is that Guzman is out at home

Fred's Brim said...

his MVPness has got a lot of girth

Fred's Brim said...

OZ - yep, Matty nailed him with a 7-hopper that landed in Ellis' mitt right at the upper left corner of the plate. Cruz slid right into it

Fred's Brim said...

Dre is swinging angry

Fred's Brim said...

Miles shouldn't be that slow

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

46

Fred's Brim said...

wow, great play by Sellers, great dig by Loney

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Has there been any word about Jamey Carroll? Ken Rosenthal said he was placed on waivers, and that's been about it in terms of news.

Fred's Brim said...

I am sure he was - does Milwaukee still need an infielder?

Fred's Brim said...

not sure about that one...

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I suppose we'll find out in the next 24 hours.

Fred's Brim said...

oof that was a meatball

Fred's Brim said...

meat
ball

Fred's Brim said...

kyleblanksbadgeyay

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

let him finish the inning!

Fred's Brim said...

ok Hiro

Fred's Brim said...

damn - Rivera hit that well too

Fred's Brim said...

keep the ball down, Matt

and get another number. 55 doesn't belong to you

Steve Sax said...

Random inexplicable key change on GBA

Ouch

GBA score: negative 20

Fred's Brim said...

man Miles is not a fast guy

Fred's Brim said...

Buckner has been awful tonight.
The SD announcers have been groaning about it all night, for both sides.

They are actually not a bad pairing, very un-homerish

Fred's Brim said...

will they walk Matty again?

MR.F said...

Wow they're respecting The Bison!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty's 1-1, 4BB - that'll boost your OBP

MR.F said...

Wotchale, y'all.

Fred's Brim said...

Rivera's gotta do something sometime, right?

Fred's Brim said...

what's up, Maestro F?

Fred's Brim said...

single scores two, Juan

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

What's the record for most walks in a game for a single player?

Fred's Brim said...

that was hitable

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

MR.F said...

Yo FB! I am in LA for work, but can't stay for the weekend =/.

Fred's Brim said...

MR.F said...

Nice sarcasm from Vin.

Fred's Brim said...

Mr F, will you get to go to any games during the week?

Paul said...

Fernie V said...

how long do I have to wait to get my Guerra badge.

Fernie V said...

Damn you Time Warner, my internet went out and had to reload and they are not going to give me my Dodger badge.

Steve Sax said...

Nice win! PGT will be delayed but I was happy to be here tonight

MR.F said...

I don't think I'll be able to! I haven't been to a Dodger game this season yet =/.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.

Now, to play MOH.
