Game 148 Thread: Sept. 14 vs. Rawitches, 7p

"You can't spell Clayton without C-Y!"

Clayton Kershaw (18-5, 2.36) vs. Daniel Hudson (16-9. 3.41).

Dodgers versus Diamondbacks. Los Angeles versus Arizona. Cy Young candidate Kershaw versus probable playoff pitcher Hudson. Who do you think Josh Rawitch is rooting for? Although we've enjoyed watching the D'backs beating the Giants to lead the NL West, that pleasure comes in a distant second to Kershaw bolstering his Cy Young chances. So...C-Ya later, Snakes.

P.S.: Clayton, please don't throw at O'Parra. Ain't worth it.

You can't spell Gerardo Parra without GAARP.

(There! Finally!)

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Rawitch and I are gonna paint the town red when he gets here.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Getting ready to embark on the Ravine. First a pit stop at the Bonaventure Brewing Co.

Let's Go Blue!

Steve Sax said...

let's go, clayton

Spank Horst said...

Rawbitches!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I imagine Mark Grace is really amped up for this game. LIKE REALLY EXCITED! THIS IS BASEBALL!

BYAAAAHHH!

Josh S. said...

Dodgers Live raised a good point about next year's interleague schedule: They'll all be Vin games!

QuadSevens said...

On the couch with a pizza in the oven Vin!

QuadSevens said...

...and an Octoberfest in my hand.

Fred's Brim said...

on the couch, watching on RE@L TV, Vinny!

Fred's Brim said...

shorten that swing, Dee!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Dee!

Fred's Brim said...

exclamation point!

Fred's Brim said...

Dee should bunt every time

Fred's Brim said...

and so should Tony Gwynn Jr!

QuadSevens said...

Since nobody else posted it, I will:

@skinnyswag9 6
Gwynn 7
@TheRealMattKemp 8
@JamesLoney_7 3
Miles 5
Sands 9
Barajas 2
Carroll 4
Kershaw 1

Twitter edition.

Fred's Brim said...

i have no idea why he didn't throw the ball

QuadSevens said...

Ducks on the pond for Kemp!

Fred's Brim said...

thanks Q7!

Spank Horst said...

#BOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Fred's Brim said...

shit - double steal didn't work so good

Fred's Brim said...

safe?
huh?

Fred's Brim said...

cram it up your ass, Parra!!

QuadSevens said...

What the!? He was hosed!

Spank Horst said...

#Suck it,Parra!

QuadSevens said...

RBI for Kemp, shit for O'Parra.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Gordon killing my fantasy team... I needed that SB

Fred's Brim said...

and attaboy Matty! too bad Dee wasn't still on base

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Aaron, just a single

QuadSevens said...

Looked like Gorden and Gwynn were arguing about that double steal.

Fred's Brim said...

let's go Jerry, keep the good feeling going

Fred's Brim said...

Gwynn teaching Dee about leads and jumps? I wonder if he missed the sign or something. I am sure Lopes will have something to say

QuadSevens said...

"The Kid" needs to get a hit.

Fred's Brim said...

this ump is calling low strikes

QuadSevens said...

I thought that too FB. Missed sign is a possibility.

Fred's Brim said...

yeah!!!

Fred's Brim said...

JERRY! JERRY!

QuadSevens said...

Run scoring single under the shortstop!

2-0

Fred's Brim said...

Steven Drew would have gotten to that

Spank Horst said...

There you go, Sands. I thought Sands was a local boy?

Fred's Brim said...

do it again, Rod!

Fred's Brim said...

Does anybody else use the blogger mobile version in non-mobile situations, ie on your laptop? I like that the comment box is at the bottom of the page and that it sends you automatically to the bottom where the latest comments are

QuadSevens said...

Rod grounds out and my pizza is ready.

QuadSevens said...

No, but that's a good idea.

Fred's Brim said...

I shudder a little when the Dodgers Live commercial shows Broxton running out of the bullpen

Fred's Brim said...

@Q7 what's on your pie?

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton was nice and relaxed on that bunt

Spank Horst said...

Thanks for that blogger tip FB.

Mr. Customer said...

Epale, y'all!

Fred's Brim said...

@Q7 Don't answer that until you are ready. I would never intentionally interrupt someone's pizza enjoyment

QuadSevens said...

Pepperoni DiGiorno.

Mr. Customer said...

@FB

You're not shuddering. The seismic waves are just reaching you now.

QuadSevens said...

No prob FB. It's cooling now.

Fred's Brim said...

sure think, Spanx!

Mr. Customer said...

Damn, Kid K is working fast!

Fred's Brim said...

Mr C!

Fred's Brim said...

right on, Jamey

Fred's Brim said...

USC night tomorrow! Fans in attendance receive a red and gold hat and a 3-year ban from bowl games!

Fred's Brim said...

nice bunt, Clayton

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

That's two years, FB.

Steve Sax said...

Sax finally checking in here

QuadSevens said...

Correction: pepperoni and tapatio on my pizza.

Fred's Brim said...

holy crow, he's fast
can he hit with a softer bat so his grounders get to the infielders more slowly?

Fred's Brim said...

sorry, MLASC

Fred's Brim said...

Saxamaphone!

QuadSevens said...

O'Parra due up this inning.

Fred's Brim said...

DiGiorno doesn't qualify but the crappier at-home pizzas (Red Baron, Totinos, etc) should come with a packet of hot sauce

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton bringing the heat!
Don't overdo it, kid

Fred's Brim said...

Drop the curve on him!

Fred's Brim said...

ass face
Should have thrown him something other than that same fastball

Dusty Baker said...

On my boss' sofa, Vinny! *

* Still working

QuadSevens said...

Has O'Parra replaced Victorino as the most hated player for Dodger fans now?

Fred's Brim said...

O'Parra knows it is coming sometime, especially if we get way up or way down

Fred's Brim said...

*calls in bomb threat to Dusty's office*

Mr. Customer said...

There be only one Victorino

QuadSevens said...

I'm looking forward to that!

QuadSevens said...

O'Parra getting beaned that is.

Josh S. said...

@MLASC: FB was counting 2004.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Aaron

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Nice pick by Miles.

Fred's Brim said...

Time for a coke and some Utz Crabby Chips!

Fred's Brim said...

yes, take more walks!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Think Beer

QuadSevens said...

3-2 count for me. 3 slices and 2 beers.

Fred's Brim said...

i do have a Genny Cream Ale tallboy in the fridge...

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Is Larry King wearing the purple-and-gold LA cap?

Steve Sax said...

not a very fulfilling third inning there.

2-0 dodgers through three

Fred's Brim said...

don't be afraid to take the walk, Q7

QuadSevens said...

4th slice is being worked on now. Going for a run in the morning.

Fred's Brim said...

pizza is good for you

QuadSevens said...

I'm just loading up on some carbs for my run.

Fred's Brim said...

Vin is setting up Upton's game-ruining hit that'll come later tonight

Fred's Brim said...

These chips must be working. I read that as "loading up on some crabs"

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy, did you like that half-inning better?

QuadSevens said...

HAHA! That would be an interesting pre run dinner.

Fred's Brim said...

I like the LA Galaxy commercial and how they emphasize the soccer terms like "boots" and "pitch"

Fred's Brim said...

it would probably result in a different kind of run...

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

100

QuadSevens said...

Yes it would FB.

Fred's Brim said...

good Jose Rijo story!
Fuck the Reds

Fred's Brim said...

anybody going to the LA County Fair?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

FSArizona just put the numbers for Kemp and Upton side-by-side, under the title "MVP Contenders."

Kemp beats Upton in every stat they list by a mile.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Another great grab by Miles.

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC for the same reasons, it's amazing to me that everybody tries to list Victorino as an MVP candidate as well

But if you are predicting what dumb sportswriters will vote for, anything, except the logical answer, is possible

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Nasty off-speed pitch from Kershaw to get Roberts. Clayton's filthy tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC, how bad has Grace been tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

heh heh Vin sort of calling for justice, RE O'Parra

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Mark Grace is ready for some shenanigans.

Fred's Brim said...

it'll be good for Dee to spend more quality time with Lopes next year

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I've had the game on mute for a better part of the broadcast, but from what I've heard, Grace is everything he usually is and just slightly more.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Dee's gonna be with the big league club next year.

Fred's Brim said...

and that idiot play-by-play announcer saying "great tilt" after every pitch

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I relish the games when he's off doing FOX broadcasts.

QuadSevens said...

Time for O'Parra to get beaned?

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC, you gonna go to any Cards or Sun Devils games this fall?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

FUCK.

QuadSevens said...

THAT'S BULLSHIT!

Fred's Brim said...

WHAT?!?!?!?
fuck youuuuuuuuuuuu!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Both Grace and PxP Man whose name I don't recall think ejecting Kershaw is wrong.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

There goes Donnie.

MR.F said...

WTF????!!?!

Fred's Brim said...

that is horseshit

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

That fucker poked Parra in the fucking elbow! That's bullshit.

DodgersKings323 said...

Let them police themselves, weak ass mlb and umps

Loney Fan said...

What happened?! I am in a damn board meeting!

Fred's Brim said...

with no warnings of any kind, that is complete donkeydick

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Fuck, now you warn the benches?

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw nicked Parra with an inside pitch on the elbow and was immediately thrown out of the game. Mattingly came out and argued with the home plate ump, and he was tossed too.

Fred's Brim said...

only if they warned both sides before the game is that not a complete pile of steaming doodoo

Loney Fan said...

Kershaw hit him intentionally to make up for yesterday and was ejected without warning?

MR.F said...

FUCKING UMPIRES!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

That's weak fucking sauce.

Fred's Brim said...

@LF - exactly

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Kershaw did not want to hit him, Grace. If he did, he wouldn't aim for the fucking elbow. Dumbass.

MR.F said...

Debatable that it was intentional, Loney Fan.

Paul said...

Hit em all!!! Let Vinny sort them out.

Fred's Brim said...

yeah, sorry, LF - not 100% that it was intentional

Fernie V said...

That is bullshit the guy is pitching a one hitter.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

There's only one jackass in the D-Backs' bullpen who was visibly excited by the ejection. Jackass.

DodgersKings323 said...

Doubt it, he wants to win 20 games, if he would do it you would think it would be in the 8th or 9th with this bullpen..........

Loney Fan said...

I knew this shit would go down and I would be stuck in this bullshit! Either way, Kershaw should not be ejected without warning. But overall, Parra can suck it hard.

Paul said...

I think K was going inside but didn't intend to hit em. But yeah you need to warn the teams before the game if you are going to watch for intent.

QuadSevens said...

They just showed a replay of Kershaw yelling from the dugout after being ejected saying "That's not right! You gotta let me pitch!"

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I wonder if MLB sends Welke a letter tomorrow that says he can't do that ever again.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Dodger fans are not Welke fans.

Loney Fan said...

Thanks for the info everyone, especially Quad.

Donnie needs to come up with a plan for September 26th on our next meeting. Or we could just throw it right at his face the next at bat.

QuadSevens said...

I say we have a reliever throw at Parra's ribs and really show Welke what intent looks like.

Loney Fan said...

So are we still rooting for the Snakes to go to the postseason over the Giants? Or can we now hate them on a more equal level?

QuadSevens said...

No problem LF. Our minds seem to be on the same track on this topic too.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Nobody is equal to the Giants.

Fred's Brim said...

Does Rod olé a pitch?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

All 300 fans at the stadiun are in an uproar... Wow this is wild

Fred's Brim said...

haha the cheer for the foul tip that hit the ump

Spank Horst said...

*charges the D-bags dugout*

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Stupid PxP Man whose name I don't recall says that Dodger fans have gained "a reputation."

Steve Sax said...

Sorry, I'm just catching up here.

I second the weak sauce motion of Mr. Customer.

Josh S. said...

If the pen doesn't hold the lead and/or the offense doesn't add to it, I'm marching straight down there to punch them all in the dicks.

Then I'm going after you, Welke.

Loney Fan said...

Not equal, closer to equal.

Loney Fan said...

Did Hudson give us the freebie out due to his sympathy allegiance to the Dodgers?

Loney Fan said...

What reputation? That we don't put up with bullshit?! I like that reputation.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Somebody's probably going to plunk a Dodger. I hope they hit Velez.

Fred's Brim said...

imagine if there was a real pennant race going on. tossing Clayton could have had a real impact

Fred's Brim said...

plunk Velez sitting in the dugout

Fred's Brim said...

I blame Dusty's boss for all of this

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

@FB - I forgot about your question. I have tickets to ASU/USC next Saturday, but no tix for the Cards. I'm looking into tix for when the Dodgers come to town in two weeks, but that'll be a game-time decision.

Jason said...

I imagine the same guy that I heard on Monday also let Welke know that he would see him in the parking lot.

Fred's Brim said...

Rod looks pissed! He's talking a mile-a-minute. In his next at-bat, he'll either strike out on three pitches or hit the ball over the pavillion

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC that sounds good. Is ASU in the new stadium or still in Sun Devil Stadium?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

They still play in Tempe.

Paul said...

@FB

So pretty much a normal Barajas AB.

Jason said...

Should have hit Bloomquist.

Fred's Brim said...

If Contagion was real, they could just bring the contaminated people to Dodger Stadium. Every seat is like a quarantine area with nobody around for miles

Fred's Brim said...

Texas State? Wasnt that the school in Necessary Roughness?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

So far, I haven't known a Boilermaker I didn't like.

QuadSevens said...

@FB Yup. Home of the fightin' armadillos.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Someone who couldn't stand Mark Grace: his ex-wife.

Fred's Brim said...

great job, Josh!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Lindblom throwing smoke.

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC, did shenanigans get Grace in trouble?

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, fellas, let's stretch this lead out

Fred's Brim said...

send it to Short Stop, Rod!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I don't know about shenanigans, but she apparently booed him an awful lot.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Ugh. I hate it when broadcasters actually root for the players.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Back to mute.

MR.F said...

Sucks that you have to deal with those crap announcers.

Paul said...

D'bags announcers make the White Sox guys look objective.

QuadSevens said...

Damn! So close Sands.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

C'mon, Paul, nothing tops Hawk Harrelson.

QuadSevens said...

Sands with the catch at the wall! Nice play!

Steve Sax said...

Sands keeps Kershaw's hope alive.

Dammit, Eovaldi, settle down

Paul said...

The Hawk had a great meltdown today.

Steve Sax said...

We got a lot of comments tonight, boys and girls

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Natch.

Steve Sax said...

2-1 LA now, with two out

Josh S. said...

Ugh. I'm getting too old for this shit.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Add Dodger baseball to Josh's Murtaugh list.

Steve Sax said...

On to the bottom of the eighth, Dodgers up 2-1

QuadSevens said...

Need more runs...and beer.
