Game 127 Thread: Aug. 22 @ Fish, 9:30a

"A few twists and this thing should pop right off."

Clayton Kershaw (12-7, 1.80) vs. Henderson Alvarez (2-2, 3.41).

"Giancarlo Stanton homered off Kershaw the last time they met on Aug. 25, 2012, and is hitting .385 with five home runs in his last six games against the Dodgers," ESPN tells us. Normally I take this to mean "Pitch around Stanton," but I imagine Kershaw will do no such thing.

The Dodgers have gone 18 straight series without losing one, and this morning's game ends the road trip and sends the Dodgers back to Chavez Ravine for the highly anticipated matchup against the Red Sox. So: happy flight. And remember: Gotta keep pitching.

Come on, you shiftless layabouts! Blow off work and get commentin'!

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, that was uneventful. Kershaw time!

BJ Killeen said...

Well, that helped!

Hideo Nomo said...

Kershaw did not pitch around Stanton.

It was a good decision.

BJ Killeen said...

Good defense. I guess a few didn't go out drinking last night..

BJ Killeen said...

I love the Dodgers staff complaining about the loud music from the club at the stadium. I guess that's one way to get to your opponent!

BJ Killeen said...

Had a phone call...is Kershaw having an off day?

i'll take a chorizo con papas burrito to go with my Starbucks,yo.

Hideo Nomo said...

Steiner really Steinered that double.

Paul said...

Mmmm...chorizo. The Steiner burrito would say it has one thing in it but last minute the contents would change.

Hideo Nomo said...

OK, Charley, if you're confused by something, don't just STOP TALKING. We know even less than you do about what's going on.

Paul said...

I don't think Steiner is actually at the game but is calling play by play with his Gameday app.

Paul said...

3 runs for Kid K. He must not know how to pitch with that big of a lead.

BJ Killeen said...

Nice job Kersh!

Hideo Nomo said...

UJTD!

Hideo Nomo said...

CRAY JAY!

BJ Killeen said...

Seriously, we can only score when we have two outs... glad to know the Dodgers are as big a procrastinator as I am!

Hideo Nomo said...

5-0!

Paul said...

I'm feeling good about this game and odds on a blue beard sighting.

Dusty Baker said...

Hell shit yeah!

MR.F said...

Like a good bra, it's nice to see Kershaw getting some support.

Paul said...

D bags tied up in the 7th.

Kershaw's ERA down to 1.74. Wow.

Hideo Nomo said...

Damn. I'm hungry. BRB.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Hey there's a ballgame on.

And a Dodger game as well.

See what I did there?

Hideo Nomo said...

That bulgogi was nowhere near as satisfying as this game.

Hideo Nomo said...

Wilson warming.

MR.F said...

Kershaw's ERA down to 1.72. So hot.

Hideo Nomo said...

"Here's the 3-1...called strike three."

Steiner is on point today.

Paul said...

Wilson clocked at 94mph.

Paul said...

Nice job boys. Make party back to the West Coast. 9 1/2 up!

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Do we call the afternoon party an afternoon delight?

Steve Sax said...

Goddammit, these early games are killing me

Steve Sax said...

But I am glad we won!

Paul said...

Skyrockets in flight!

Hideo Nomo said...

PGTUP!
