Game 150 Thread: Sept. 20 @ Nationals, 4p

Chris Capuano (11-10, 3.60) vs. Ross Detwiler (9-6, 3.16).

Back to the good ol' singleheader today as the Dodgers are actually in position to take this series from the playoff-bound Nats. Matt Kemp hit a game-winning home run yesterday (above) and Clayton Kershaw is throwing again, but don't be fooled into thinking playoffs. (Except you, rbnlaw.) Still, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the Dodgers trying to finish this season on a winning streak.

So we only have to win our last two games of the season?

Dusty Baker said...

^ Sorry for the extraneous "."

Orel said...

Make sure it doesn't happen again, Dusty.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, are you on your period again?

Hideo Nomo said...

Gotta win to stay two back.

Baseball is fun.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Yes. Nothing for you tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

Let's win tonight!

Steve Sax said...

there may be nothing for the dodgers tonight, either...

Dusty Baker said...

Drinks Kool Aid cracks me up just looking at the avatar.

Spank Horst said...

Hey! It's Kool Aid!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty looked pained after that K, the way he stepped across the plate like that

Fred's Brim said...

I already don't like Fuckface Ripken in the booth

Hideo Nomo said...

The Giants won AGAIN? I know the division is hopeless, but FFFFUUUUUUCCCCCKKKK.

Orel said...

Going from Melky Cabrera to Marco Scutaro turned into an upgrade for them.

Dusty Baker said...

Is Punto the poor man's Scutaro?

Orel said...

We'll be losing soon.

Dusty Baker said...

Here comes the shit sandwich.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Orel said...

Cap gets out of it after allowing two singles to start the inning!

Fred's Brim said...

are going to be no-hit tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

Ripken is such an idiot

Orel said...

Detwiler pitching a PERFECT GAME through three.

Fred's Brim said...

MLB Network broadcast just showed the "optimized" Dodger lineup:
AJellis
Kemp
Cruz
Ethier
Gonzalez
Victorino
MEHllis
Hanley
Pitcher

Fred's Brim said...

Cap getting squeezed

Fred's Brim said...

and not preventing leadoff hits

Orel said...

Any chance the Giants' soft schedule will make them unprepared for the playoffs?

Fred's Brim said...

their soft lineup will come back to earth/be exposed in the playoffs

I am sure I said that before the 2010 playoffs too

Fred's Brim said...

Harper looks like a roided-up Screech

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck you and your cheering, Ripken

Orel said...

Cap wasn't going to keep getting lucky every inning. 1-0 Nats.

Fred's Brim said...

muting time

Fred's Brim said...

unacceptable

Fred's Brim said...

that was pathetic

Orel said...

WP flushes in another run. 2-0 Nats.

Orel said...

At this rate Cap won't make it past five.

Fred's Brim said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

-URNS

Orel said...

MELLIS HOMER!

Orel said...

Victorino has been a huge disappointment.

Orel said...

Kemp pops out instead of strikes out. I guess that's progress.

Fred's Brim said...

he's a little huge disappointment

Fred's Brim said...

^Victorino i mean

Fred's Brim said...

better things happen when I am not watching

Orel said...

Wow, our defense on that play was embarrassing. 3-1 Nats.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Ckecking in a GT for the very first time since i got here!

Emails will follow in later hours :)

Orel said...

Epale, Karina! Hope you're getting ready for...PLAYOFFS!

Orel said...

I can't believe we're losing to the best team in the majors.

Orel said...

Cap fast as cat

Orel said...

Well, Cap's made it through five. So there's that.

Orel said...

If this team could string together a few hits in a row...LOOK OUT

Orel said...

A-Gon with two on! And he grounds weakly to first. I mean, so weakly the peanut vendor could have fielded it.

Orel said...

whoa whoa, losing in September

Dusty Baker said...

Karina in tha heezy!

karina said...

@Orel of course i am!!!!!!

karina said...

in the bright side, it's not a shutout :)

Dusty Baker said...

On the bright side, we're not losing 132-2!

Hideo Nomo said...

Epale, peeps. Are we still unwinning?

Dusty Baker said...

We are still not not sucking.

karina said...

Victorino ruined my first game at Dodger Stadium (Sunday) and almost made me to break my self imposed rule of not booing the players of my team at the stadium

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey, why didn't we make a bigger deal out of Karina's first game?

Orel said...

Because she didn't tell us!

karina said...

@Nomo because the place I could find for my very first few days was in Lincoln Heights.

karina said...

It was Sunday and i assumed it was family time, it was also very unplanned.

karina said...

*hides*

Dusty Baker said...

KARINA! You didn't tell us or wait for us? Booooo!

Dusty Baker said...

This will end well!

Dusty Baker said...

This did not end well.

Hideo Nomo said...

JAGOFFS!

Alex said...

^

PLAYOFFS?!

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey, we're a half game behind a team that SOLD AT THE DEADLINE.

WTF IS HAPPENING?!!!

Paul said...

Think we can trade Victorino back?

Fred's Brim said...

:(

Fred's Brim said...

I am sure somebody has done it but I haven't seen it. Do late-season trades improve a team's chances of making the postseason? How about a team's chances once in the postseason? The answer feels like no to the first and maybe but probably not to the second

The Loney Curse has struck us

Fred's Brim said...

:(

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hey guys! How did the game go?





Oh.




*backs away slowly*

Paul said...

It helped the giants in 2010.

Franklin Stubbs said...

FUCK the Giants with a rusty soup ladle.

Hideo Nomo said...

I can't be sad. It's iPhone Eve!

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah but look how Loney's team turned out.
