Game 158 Thread: Sept. 25 @ Pads, 1p

"You're awesome!" "No, you're awesome!"

Clayton Kershaw (20-5, 2.27) vs. Cory Luebke (6-9, 3.23).

This is it, Dodger fans: your last chance this year to watch the two reasons life is worth living together on the field. Kershaw has already made a convincing case for the NL Cy Young Award, and a 21st win (why are we so obsessed with wins?) would be his closing argument. Kemp continues to revel in his general awesomeness, but he'll have to catch fire to make the Triple Crown and/or 40/40 a reality. Better put SDFD on high alert!

Just got back from seeing Moneyball. Highly recommend it to all.

Sunday morning at the movies. Very strong move, Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Hit and an RBI for Matty already!

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

And I timed it so I could make it in tome to hear Vinny call the game in.

Dusty Baker said...

Before the chairs are warm, the Dodgers are leading two to nothing.

Thus spake Vinny.

Josh S. said...

MILEZ!!!

Dusty Baker said...

KILOMETERZ!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Error? DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

Well crap...an earned run.

Dusty Baker said...

Safe!!!

Wait, we wanted him to be out. So, yea! Right, out.

Orlando Zepeda said...

On a happier note, Arizona 5, Gnats 0.

Dusty Baker said...

On a sadder note, Arizona 5, Gnats 1.

Steve Sax said...

Your in-game update:

Kemp: 1-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI

Kershaw: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 6 Ks

Steve Sax said...

Kemp Ks to go 1-for-4

Josh S. said...

I think the error will get changed to a hit, but what we really need are slumps from Reyes and Braun.

epale everyone!

let's cross fingers they have a slump

Dusty Baker said...

The only thing about Vin that I want to retire is his requisite "G'day, mate!" whenever an Australian player is introduced.

Spanktopus Horst said...

Do i have the only defense that gets points subtracted for every 10 yards the opponents QB passes for?

Spanktopus Horst said...

Wrong thread. Sorry fools.

Josh S. said...

Kemp will get one more AB.

Josh S. said...

Jordan Walden is Broxtoning shit up down in Anaheim.

Josh S. said...

Oops. Maybe when Clay wins the Cy, he can have a mini version made up to give Kenley.

Orlando Zepeda said...

and Timmeh finishes 13-14! His neck must hurt looking up at Clay

Dusty Baker said...

"Clayton Kershaw's season is over, but his numbers linger on." - Vinny

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to strangle that little bitch if she doesn't stop chanting for the Pod Rays.

Josh S. said...

PITCHER'S TRIPLE CROWN!

Dusty Baker said...

(dry humps Kid K)

Josh S. said...

Has anyone commented on how much Wallach looks like an older Jeff Kent?

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for taking us through it, Vinny! You are going with the team to Arizona, aren't you?

cc: Lyons, Collins

Dusty Baker said...

No, because Kent is not supposed to be named on this site.

So Kershaw ties for the lead in wins, and gets the lead in ERA and Ks.

Not too shabby.

Orel said...

CYPGTUP!
