Post-Game 63 Thread: League Snatches Defeat from Jaws of Victory

DIAMONDBACKS 5, DODGERS 4

Did you know Ned Colletti guaranteed Brandon League at least $22.5 million for three years? And this is the first year of that contract, which could be worth up to $33.5 million?

Clayton Kershaw didn't have his best stuff but turned in seven innings of one-run ball. Yasiel Puig went 3 for 4. Mellis went 3 for 4. None of it mattered.

League came in with his usual gas can, giving up four earned runs over 2/3 of an inning. When will Donnie and Ned learn?

Apparently never.

This guy's a mop up man. Why does Donnie continue to use him as a closer?

Of all the people to NOT get a hamstring injury, there's Brandon League.

This makes me really sad

Can someone please spike League's protein shake with some HGH so he can be suspended? It might be our only hope of keeping him off the mound.

This terrible guy is fucking terrible and needs to go.

And I mean both League and Mattingly.

Neeebs said...

^You said terrible twice.

I know; I was trying to work it in a third time but couldn't.

I feel like a nice shit sandwich for lunch.

I'm shocked to see quotes by League and Mattingly saying league isn't that bad in the LA Times today. These two can't be serious right?

@ Wicks

No shit? Wow these fools (and i mean that literally) have officially checked out of reality.
