Game 145 Thread: Sept 14 vs. Cards, 7p

Chris Capuano (11-10, 3.59) vs. Joe Kelly (5-6, 3.51).

No offense, but we're pretty damn good at this no offense thing. And if the Dodgers don't care about advancing runners around that second-base bend thingy back toward home plate, it's hard for fans to rally around this team, too. We haven't scored more than five runs in over two weeks (and we won that game, btw).

The Dodgers have lost seven of our last eight, and we're running out of time to make up that 7.5-game gap with the Giants (I can't even type that without laughing hysterically. And sobbing.). The Cardinals are vying for a playoff spot, while we're looking for someplace safe to hide. So let's throw Capuano out there to the wolves tonight, as he's gone 2-8 since his 9-2 start, and hasn't had a win since August 12. No offense, but I'm expecting...no offense.

Shout out to all the (single) nerds in the house: a Cap / (Joe Kelly's) Deadpool mashup.

Paul said...

Every run the Dodgers score I will do a shot.

I better think of something strong.

Paul said...

Dear Uncle Frank,

lead me out of the darkness and into the booze.

Steve Sax said...

Paul, you're going to be like a eunuch in a brothel

Paul said...

Well I'll still be drinking beer inbetween. A man has to survive.

Ñeeebs said...

OK, I know the problem...

I SUCK!!!!

I have no business watching/rooting/following this team as it is currently configured.

Hideo Nomo said...

Kershaw questionable for Sunday because of the hip, per Vin.

Hideo Nomo said...

Hideo Nomo said...

QuadSevens said...

Hideo Nomo said...

AGon finally coming alive?

Hideo Nomo said...

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm growing to loathe Punto.

Paul said...

Steve Sax said...

Fuuuuuuuuuuck

Steve Sax said...

@gnomes 7:55p: yeah, I was concerned people wouldn't get the "cable" reference

It refers to the thing that's tightening around our neck, i suppose

Paul said...

Hit him!

Paul said...

Good at bat.

Paul said...

Atta boy Dre! On the 3-0 pitch.

Hideo Nomo said...

Wha?

QuadSevens said...

Ethier!! The bats have a little life!

Hideo Nomo said...

I took a nap.

Steve Sax said...

Nick Punto is one lucky bastard

Hideo Nomo said...

Punto is Esperanto for douchey slide.

Steve Sax said...

Nice call for the bunt there, Donnie!

AJellis fouls his bunt up for an easy out.

Hideo Nomo said...

HATE YOU SO HARD PUNTO

Steve Sax said...

Punto is one unlucky bastard

Steve Sax said...

Shane batting .256... In fantasy land

Hideo Nomo said...

Fly balls right at outfielders. All we ever get.

Steve Sax said...

Shane Victorino sucks the big one. He has been absolutely worthless for us. Worthless.

Hideo Nomo said...

Punto is worse, but no one expected him to do anything.

Paul said...

If you combine Gonzo and Loney's numbers since the trade they have 2 homeuns and 19rbi.

John G said...

to quote Diamond, "You can call him 'MothBalls' all day long but he still just hit a 2-run home run".

Paul said...

Cruuuuuz!

Headache time.

Paul said...

One shot down.

Paul said...

Two down.


Kills those ants!!!

Paul said...

No more. Just saw the ghost of Lenny Harris.

Paul said...

We are going to win 10 in a row.


Jesus told me.

Hideo Nomo said...

Jesus Colorado?

Paul said...

Yup.

He also told me he was a big winner on Star Search back in the day sooo..

Hollandsworth said...

back from work. didn't expect this score at all.

let's see how we take a first-and-third opportunity and squander it this time.

Paul said...

Nice hit by Jesus Victorino.


I missed Ellian. Good things happen when he is around. He was gone right?

Paul said...

Marte is from the Domincan Republic and is six months pregnant.

Paul said...

Soooo Matt is hurt right? Really hurt? Sit him!!!

Hollandsworth said...

one more out, and we can score another point for hopeless pessimists like me everywhere.

Hollandsworth said...

*choked sob*

Paul said...

I think that hit his balls again.

Orel said...

Mothballs and Dodger Stadium are a match made in heaven.

Paul said...

There are over 3 million fans at the game tonight!

Wait...

Paul said...

9th inning. Let's get close this thing out.

Paul said...

94mph how many leagues is that?

Paul said...

Gangnam style wins on the jukebox and Dodgers win. Winning streak is inevitable.

Orel said...

AT LAST

Hideo Nomo said...

We make...par...ty?

Hideo Nomo said...

The only bummer is that Lyons calls an offensive outburst in the pregame and now he's gonna gloat.

QuadSevens said...

I think I heard cheering coming from the tv in the other room. Did I miss something?

Alex said...

PARTY MAKING IN PROGRESS

Paul said...

Postgame guys are going to fight.

Paul said...

Are these guys as drunk as me?

Hollandsworth said...

RIP Dynomutt

Alex said...
