Game 40 Thread: May 19 vs. Cardinals

Won't someone stop the Westbrook Menace?
Clayton Kershaw (3-1, 2.22 ERA) vs. Jake Westbrook (4-2, 2.35 ERA)

Los Angeles is on Westbrook watch. Yesterday, there was one. Today, they've doubled up. At this rate, we'll be ass-deep in Westbrooks by mid-July. Truly, the Dodgers and the Lakers are all that stand between us and complete assimilation into the Westbrook collective.

(This is also your Lakers/Thunder Game Thread, as you might have guessed.)

epale everyone!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think I pulled a hamstring while posting the lineup.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh Bobby.

Hideo Nomo said...

Manny just lined out to Aaron Miles. My head, it spins.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm guessing there will be fewer runs tonight than there were last night.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Just a hunch.

Orel said...

Greetings from enemy territory. I'll be following along with Gameday. The things we do for family.

Steve Sax said...

Diamondbacks lost, but Giants won

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Where have you gone, Adam Kennedy? A nation turns it's lonely eyes to you.

Woo-woo-woo.

Steve Sax said...

Orel! Holy shit, I assumed you had been swallowed up by the Westbrook collective!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let's go, BB Gun!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Pop pop!

Orel said...

So. A.J. Ellis for President?

Orel said...

You didn't get my email, Sax?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Berking Lance Fuckman?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sucks for Fuckman.

Franklin Stubbs said...

How many consecutive question/comments can we ask?

Franklin Stubbs said...

That many, apparently.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Beltran has no business being this good anymore.

Orel said...

How do you think Mets fans feel?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

How do you think the Giants fans feel?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Giants fans' tears taste like chocolate.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mmmmmmmm, chocolate tears.

Franklin Stubbs said...

36-26 Lakers in the 2nd!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fortunately, they don't have a history of coughing up a lead...

Franklin Stubbs said...

'Dre!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Adam Kennedy has had a marvelous career? Well, Vin says it, so it must be true.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hooray for errors!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hey, there's still some leftover Kennedy magic from last night!

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Marla

Emphasis on "had".

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess that error took all of Kennedy's magic.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

BB GUN

Franklin Stubbs said...

Used it right the fuck up.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jaysus Heinrich Christ, he's unstoppable!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If that were me, the bat would hit me in the face, spin in the air and then hit the balls for good measure.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sellers should get a tattoo removed for every batter he leaves in scoring position.

Franklin Stubbs said...

56-46 Lakers at the half.

Orel said...

Thunder PR says Russell Westbrook is fine. Thank goodness.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Tattoos for everyone!

Franklin Stubbs said...

SELLERS!

Dare I say he tattooed it?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice going, Nut Shot.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hahahahahahahaha, fuck you, mothballs!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

#BamSucka

Franklin Stubbs said...

Excellent!

Steve Sax said...

Clayton gets his first XBH by doubling off of Holliday's glove.

Gwynn then cashes him in with a single.

Steve Sax said...

4-0, men at the corners with Ethier at the plate and two out, B7

Steve Sax said...

Wild pitch advances the runners. 5-0 LA, Ethier still up

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Vn just summarized the game and I didn't know Berkman got hurt. Yikes.

Steve Sax said...

Gwynn is sweating like a pig

Steve Sax said...

Single up the middle! Ethier RBI as Abreu scores. Nice!

6-0 Dodgers

Steve Sax said...

Ethier batting .368 with RISP.

I think Vin said Gwynn is battin north of .530 with RISP.

Hideo Nomo said...

Suck it, Franklin Stubbs of 7:38pm!

Steve Sax said...

Kennedy Ks to end the inning.

Steve Sax said...

Sellers HR earlier this inning. Sorry I missed it!

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

Lakers 78-71 at the start of the fourth

Steve Sax said...

Mike Brown just got a tan from the suit of Craig Sager

Franklin Stubbs said...

We have yet to see, but I'll be happy to be wrong, Nomo of 9:24pm!

Franklin Stubbs said...

My DirecTV is a shitload slower now on switching between channels. I blame this newer interface.

Steve Sax said...

@Orel: Komrade, I salute you.

Hideo Nomo said...

I recant my request for an it-sucking. Stubbs' statement definitely applied to all runs.

Steve Sax said...

Holliday reached, Kershaw at 116 pitches. Let him rest!

Steve Sax said...

Nicely done, Eugenio's Streak!

Steve Sax said...

Westbrook is on fire. Back to four

Steve Sax said...

Where is Bynum btw?

Steve Sax said...

Great rebound by Blake there

Steve Sax said...

Is Bynum even playing this quarter? Or is he too busy moping?

Steve Sax said...

Nice exterior shot of the Staples Center, with Dodger Stadium's lights in the background

Steve Sax said...

Lakers lead down to two, 2:56

Steve Sax said...

Bynum gets the ball on that possession and throws up a fucking brick

Franklin Stubbs said...

PGT up!

Steve Sax said...

World Peace air all

Steve Sax said...

Horrible shot selection by Kobe there
