Post-Game 89 Thread: And That's Why You Don't Turn Your Back to Home Plate

PADRES 7, DODGERS 6

The offense showed up tonight, highlighted by Andre Ethier's two-run home run in the sixth, but it all fell apart in the ninth. With the Dodgers leading 6-5, Kenley Jansen allowed the first two runners on, then battled back to get two outs. With Everth Cabrera on third and Will Venable on second, Jansen turned his back to home plate and Cabrera stole home. When Jansen's throw went to the backstop, Venable followed with the winning run. So, yeah.

This went from dry humping to thumb sucking.

This went from drinking to drinking.

As we speak Colletti is driving down to the old folks home to look for a reliever.

Orel said...

How did he let Fuentes get away?

Hello, second place!

Dusty Baker said...

Hello, sucking our own shit!

Paul said...

Drunk post noted Dusty.

NicJ said...

I think the more disturbing thing is that we allowed 5 runs to the lowly Pads not counting those two fluky ones.

Orel said...

@jphoonstra: "Kenley Jansen was among the first guys at his locker stall after the game, answered every question."

Good on you, Kenley.

Shit on Harang for giving up 5 runs to the madres. This game sucked ass.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd rather Jansen be a spoil sport but be a mentally prepared, confident pitcher. That was one of the dumbest plays I've ever seen outside of pee wee league.

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah, Kenley fucked up, but they just kept letting the Padres back in. 3-1 became 3-2, 4-2 became 4-4, 6-4 became 6-5, etc.

Paul said...

Jansen will be okay. I'd rather have him learn from that mistake in July than October. Great read by the madres. That is what happens when you have a rep for not keeping the runners in tow.


Learn from Ken and move on.

Paul said...

It. Oh and sign more Cubans.

Orel said...

Seriously. In years past this would have happened in the playoffs.

Dusty Baker said...

This one seemed tougher to bear if one was in the Yard. Crowd didn't even understand what was happening. Much like Jansen.

I feel like poking my own eyes out, with knitting needles.

Dusty Baker said...

This should have ben the best night ever, what with me finally meeting Neeebs and RBN. But like my prom night, it turned out to be more hype than anything else, the excitement short-lived, and me sitting around with Kleenex.

Dusty Baker said...

Sons attendance record has already been updated, sadly. It huuuuuuurts!

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty: What do you guys want to drink?
MDIL: I'll split a Diet Coke with you.
Dusty: I'll split a beer with myself.

Ñeeebs said...

And I add yhat RBN, myself, and Dodgers are celebrating 50 this year.

*cries*

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

You guys don't look a day older than 45.

45!

Dusty Baker said...

I love the genius who took the quart and added 8 ounces to it, just to be safe.

Paul said...

50?!?? This is not good for the band's néw pop album.

@PJ: Dont worry. Half the band has latin american birth certificates. Official records say we havent hit 35 yet.
