Game 153 Thread: Sept. 20 vs. Giants, 7p

3
0

Clayton Kershaw (19-5, 2.30) vs. Tim Lincecum (13-12, 2.59).

Per Sax, Clayton Kershaw and Tim Lincecum have met head-to-head three times this season. Kershaw has won all three meetings (by a combined score of 5-2). Tonight, Kershaw has a chance to accomplish three things:

  • win his 20th game, bolstering his chances to win the Cy Young Award
  • sweep Lincecum in head-to-head meetings
  • put the Dodgers above .500, which they haven't been since April.

In a season full of meaningless games, tonight's might be the meaningfullest. We just want to tell you good luck, Clayton. We're all counting on you.

I'll be there tonight. Reserve 7, Row D, on the aisle, if you want to stop by and say hi. I won't be leaving my seat much, because I want to savor this game.

Jason said...

Timmeh's last name would not make it through the ESPN FF profanity filter.

Jason said...

Tonight's Dodger badges:

Kershaw - Win
Kemp - SB
Guerra - Save

Yes, please.

Mr. Customer said...

Making a giant pastrami sandwich, Vinny!

Josh S. said...

The Dee Gordon Speed Racer video they play here is the hotness.

Also the hotness? A Dodger Dog with Cholula and deli mustard.

WASH YER FOOKIN HAIR, TIMMEH!

Spank Horst said...

GODDAMN IT SON OF A FUCKING BITCH

Mr. Customer said...

Josh S. said...

By this season's standards, the joint looks sold out.

Mr. Customer said...

Even by this season's standards, this place is fucking dead.

Mr. Customer said...

el montanero said...

Atta boy, Timmah!

Josh S. said...

Paul said...

Torres you just got molested by Uncle Charlie.

Josh S. said...

KK

el montanero said...

Fuck you, Kershaw, for being so talented!

el montanero said...

Man, they're really pushing those ugly-ass Fiats.

Paul said...

Love the fact that the crowd was getting into It with two strikes.

Paul said...

Get him Bison.

Paul said...

Nice hit James. Going the other way with it.

Spank Horst said...

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax, I don't think Spank gets KCAL down in the south valley

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Aaron Miles is trying his hardest to not get resigned for next year

Fred's Brim said...

Sands nonchalants one to end the inning

Fred's Brim said...

WASH YER PUBES, TIMMEH!

Josh S. said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

aww run it out, Clayton!

Fred's Brim said...

good 2-strike bunt though

el montanero said...

I'm a UCLA fan and all, but those hats are pretty ugly.

Spank Horst said...

@ Saxy

What FB said. No dice to KCAL on the Dish.

Fernie V said...

I think timmah is going to cry.

Mr. Customer said...

What's crackin', FB?

el montanero said...

Come on, Sellers, get on and let Matty have another crack at it.

Fernie V said...

I won't use Sellers and crack in the same sentence.

el montanero said...

Timmah looks like he's upset that he's missing the Scorpions/Ratt/Cinderella concert.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Matty

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Juany

Fred's Brim said...

Steve Sax said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

el montanero said...

Dusty Baker said...

el montanero said...

That's just unfair.

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

"A big Uncle Charlie"- Vinny

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Little D on base! Caution, speed demon x-ing

Mr. Customer said...

Damn

Fred's Brim said...

Mr. Customer said...

Time for a dagger, Matty

Fred's Brim said...

Let's go, Matt!

Josh S. said...

Sellers is KILLING me.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, that's something at least.

Fred's Brim said...

crap, at least Dee got to second

get him home, Juan!

Fred's Brim said...

Lou Piniella is a consultant for the Gnats? And I didn't think there were any more ways to hate them

Fred's Brim said...

Jamey Carrol is looking aged these days

Fred's Brim said...

this has all the makings of a disappointing loss

Clayton's at 99 pitches so maybe he can get to the 9th if this is a quick inning

el montanero said...

Amazing how Vin can be gracious with anyone, even a raging asshat like Lou Piniella.

Paul said...

Fuck.

el montanero said...

Fuck.

Fred's Brim said...

huh? I didn't think that had a chance at all

Mr. Customer said...

FUCKING TWO FIRST NAME S.O.B.

Josh S. said...

Sheeeeit.

Paul said...

Christ fuckin Stewart. Only the Giants.

Fred's Brim said...

speaking of raging asshats...

Paul said...

Shit. Full count.

Paul said...

Come on Kid.

Fred's Brim said...

why did I open my big mouth?

Paul said...

Donald Duck hat night at the Ravine.

Mr. Customer said...

At least we don't have to see either his ass or his hat for the remainder of the game.

Fred's Brim said...

fudge
Navarro would have let that get to the backstop

Mr. Customer said...

Sweating this.

Josh S. said...

WTF? Torres can just stroll in front of Barajas and no interference call?

Paul said...

Ummmm I hate this shit.

Mr. Customer said...

Looking raggedy, kid.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

What the hell, I go put the kid to sleep, come back and the shutout is gone! How did the Giants score that crap run?

Mr. Customer said...

@dbt

Chris Fucking Stewart squeaked one over the wall.

Paul said...

Lost it.

Josh S. said...

NOW it can be devil jumping time please?

Fred's Brim said...

Paul said...

Panda, fuck you.

Josh S. said...

FUCKING FAT SANDWICH GO AWAY.

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Beltran up, this is why they got him

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

SIDDOWN, TUBBO

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Actually, I think they got Beltran because they wanted to win games.

Paul said...

Finish him!

Fred's Brim said...

Mr. Customer said...

THANK THE GODS!!!!

el montanero said...

Fred's Brim said...

"I'm so excited I think I dropped a testicle."

Someone's been reading the Chaz Bono Diaries.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Fat Bitches and Beltrans no match for Jansen!

el montanero said...

It'll be interesting to see how Guerra pitches in a game where there's actually a bit of pressure.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

I realized as soon as I clicked "Publish" that I should have qualified whose testicle.

el montanero said...

You mean you don't have a collection of mummified testicles, too?

Mr. Customer said...

@PPR

Why go in for half-measures? Drop ALL of them.

Fred's Brim said...

Shut these mothafuckas down, Javy!

Pistol Pete Reiser said...
