Game 160 Thread: Sept 27 @ D'backs, 6:30p

Hiroki Kuroda (13-16, 3.17) vs. Jarrod Parker, (0-0, -.--)

In this, the Dodgers' penultimate game, they have an outside chance at ending the season five games over .500 AND screwing the Diamondbacks out of a second seed in the playoffs (which would matter for home-field advantage in the NLDS, and potentially for opponent if Atlanta hangs on to the Wild Card).

For most Dodger fans, however, tonight's game is all about watching Matt Kemp chase the magic 40/40 threshold (possible, with Kemp at 38/40 today) and potentially the triple crown (unlikely, despite leading HR by 1 and RBI by 8, Kemp trails both Ryan Braun and Jose Reyes by ten thousandths in batting average). I agree with ESPN.com's Jon Weisman; Kemp is probably chasing the "double crown". But only two more blasts would keep Kemp from being a 40-HR virgin. Go Bison!

Apathy is the best medicine.

This really puts a dent in our playoff hopes.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'd say this improves our draft standing, but everyone ahead of us lost today as well.
