Game 139 Thread: Sept. 4 @ Braves, 10:30a

Clayton Kershaw (17-5, 2.45) vs. Randall Delgado (0-1, 3.60).

Question: Who the hell is Randall Delgado? Answer: A spot-starter for Jair Jurrjens. Question: Who is Clayton Kershaw? Answer: Only this year's probable NL Cy Young winner. Believe it or not, the Dodgers have won five straight series (even if one of them was a single makeup game against the Pirates) and are going for their fourth (technical) sweep out of five chances. The Dodgers are on fire! Now, who's ready for the season to begin?

The Pirates game was definitely a series win. It was the 4th game of a series in which the Dodgers had already won 2 of 3.

Just noted this headline in the LA Times:

Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly wants more offense for 2012

Williams wrote that Kershaw shouldn't win cy young cause he pitches in a pitchers park. If we use his logic Kemp should be MVP, cause he should have 100 home runs if Dodger Stadium weren't such a pitchers park.

Josh S. said...

The same pitcher's park that Sandy, Don, Mike Marshall, Fernando, Orel, and Gagne pitched in?

OK, then.

Dusty Baker said...

May be a rain delay, according to the Twitters.

Dusty Baker said...

Heading out for golf so I won't be involved in the inevitable victory today.

Dusty Baker said...

BTW: Heading our for a round, Vi---FUCK YOU ERIC COLLINS!

Josh S. said...

Kemmmmmmmmmmp.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

That must have been some kind of mirage. Everyone knows Kemp can't hit a homer outside of Dodger Stadium's pitchers' park.

Wait a minute...

This just goes to show you how important April, May and June are to a baseball team. Stupid 1/2 of a season.

Come on, rain!!!

Josh S. said...

Shit.

Josh S. said...

Even Cy Young winners are backed by shitty defense sometimes.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Dammit.

Paul said...

Damn I am bad luck. I am off the board again.

Kimbrel is a beast.

Josh S. said...

Hawksworthless.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Fuuuuuck.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Kimbrel is the anti-Hawksworh. Hawk is garbage, he's the new Troncoso

Josh S. said...

You can't really pick apart strategy in an all but lost season, but MAYBE you yank Hawk after Ethier had to bail him out.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Should Kershaw have been pulled after the top 7th? He wasn't the same after running the bases. I'm sure that wore him down.

All the rage on Dodger Talk is Mattingly's annoying use of the bunt to move runners over with Kemp on deck. The funniest part was most of the callers were protesting Loney as the one bunting. Seems the honks on DT feel Loney has earned his way back into Sluggerville.

They did have a point about Kemp attracting more and more IBB's because of the infernal bunting.

Still, it was entertaining.

Fernie V said...

picked it up today 52 total badges. Wondered if I would of had a few more if my wife hadn't shut out computer down.

Dusty Baker said...

Isn't Troncoso the new Troncoso?

Josh S. said...

Slow day at the SoSG bar.

Trayvon's home run robbing catch in his debut was MLB Network's Number 5 play of the month.

(cries)

Snakes com back to beat Giants, are now seven games up. Good times.

Sorry for the low content today, was hiking in a national park that gets the same amount of cell signal as Dodger Stadium on Opening Day.

Steve Sax said...

Early baseball tomorrow in the District, so rest up boys and girls

Dusty Baker said...

I'm ready.
