Game 137 Thread: September 2 vs. Rockies, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (13-8, 1.72 ERA) vs. Chad Bettis (0-3, 4.80 ERA)

Food for thought: If Chad Billingsley and Jerome Bettis ever had a love child, the kid would have the biggest thighs of all time.

This game time snuck up on us here at SoSG World Headquarters. Sax and I saw each other at Dodger Stadium like ten minutes ago or so, right? Weird.

Today the Dodgers take on the Rockies for a three-game set, fresh off their sweep of the Pod Rays yesterday. The elimination number for the Dbags is now 16, and the Dodgers have a healthy 11.5 game lead on them. I'm guessing that with that lead and with the expanded roster, we'll start to see some crazy lineups made to get the regulars some rest. Which also may lead to bad baseball. And likely to some poorly-constructed Game Threads here. In fact, we're resting Stubbs for the stretch run, too; we need him for the playoffs.

I think we'll need about 47 geicos to get out of this game alive

nice urine

Dusty Baker said...

When does Helton come in to pinch hit for a 16-run HR?

spank said...

@ DB

re: Beach Boy reference.

Damn skippy

Fred's Brim said...

that was weird

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Thought so. Nicely played.

Fred's Brim said...

@Dusty, I don't think he'll hit a 16R home run today. More likely they'll bat around and he'll hit two 8-run homers

either that or draw a bases-loaded 3-run walk

Fred's Brim said...

nice play again by Arenado

Dusty Baker said...

Fernando Valenzuela gets to keep Juan Uribe's errant bat.

Fred's Brim said...

strain or sprain?

Dusty Baker said...

Uribe and Ethier have just been eating the ball for lunch today.

Literally, in Uribe's case.

Fred's Brim said...

or stain?

Fred's Brim said...

and attaboy, Juan, you know I like my insurance runs

Dusty Baker said...

He didn't go around on that.

Fred's Brim said...

oh that was horseshit, blue

Fred's Brim said...

I am sure Cole is getting a tweet directed his way after that

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, CC!

Fred's Brim said...

it's nice to see CC hitting the ball hard. Seems like most of his hits lately are slaps and flares

Dusty Baker said...

Cradaddy étouffée!

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Don't sleep on my retort to your comment on minors in the September call ups post.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Winley!

karen said...

The sky just opened up here and I've been outside bringing mom's 3 cats in. I totally missed all the scoring.

Maybe I should leave again for 9th.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh there he is

i thought maybe we wouldnt have to see him

Fred's Brim said...

*goes back to check*

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Where are you? We could use some rain here in Pasadena, so send some our way.

Fred's Brim said...

stupid coors

karen said...

Oh man Kenley.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Even Jansen gets tagged in Coors Field.

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs. Dusty in law just noted that Dinger and BWilson wear the same number.

Fred's Brim said...

get the ball down, Kenley!

Dusty Baker said...

This is all because Sax was drinking Coors yesterday.

karen said...

@DB...I'm still at mom's in Hemet. She gets those crazy low desert thunderstorms here sometimes.

spank said...

That KFC was a bad idea. Hold my calls.

Fred's Brim said...

phew

Fred's Brim said...

spank needs a toilet phone

Dusty Baker said...

Puig: Mild right knee STRAIN, per Dodgers tweet.

Dusty Baker said...

Uno mas, Kenley!

Fred's Brim said...

Finish this, Kenley!

Neeebs (The Original) said...

I smell party.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Or maybe that was just Spanky.

Dusty Baker said...

Bullshit, ump! That was strike three!

Fred's Brim said...

goddamn squeezed strikezone

karen said...

That was mighty close ump.

Fred's Brim said...

ball 1 was a better pitch than that last one, shoulda been a strike too

Dusty Baker said...

Kenley looks pissed off.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, KJ, you got this

karen said...

Don't want to see Tulo. Time for out 3 Kenley.

Dusty Baker said...

OUT! Fuck all y'all Rockies. Done and done. Whew.

Still feels like a loss. 82-55 now.

Fred's Brim said...

WOOOOOP!

BJ Killeen said...

Get me off this fucking roller coaster!

karen said...

MEllis made that closer than it had to be.

*playing with my poor heart*

Dusty Baker said...

Magic Number 14

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Gamey game win.
Wait...what?

karen said...

Time to make (tentative) party!!

karen said...

Hot damn, Dre's a looker.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

PGT up.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Psyche

karen said...

No pregame or post game. I hate that.

Fred's Brim said...

man I hope Puig is ok

Steve Sax said...

er, neeebs?

That's not a PGT

Fred's Brim said...

he'll probably go on the DL the day Kemp comes back

Steve Sax said...

I can't get to a PGT until much later tonight. I'm covered in barbecue sauce.

Oh, and I'm at a picnic, too.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, ok. I was going to do one then I saw you had one started, Sax. I'll go ahead and do it.

spank said...

i make potty party

spank said...

82 wins? i feel pretty.

Dusty Baker said...

PGT up!

Neeebs (The Original) said...

er Sax?

Psyche?

Steve Sax said...

@Neeebs: You are (now) correct, sir!

Neeebs (The Original) said...

@Sax: You spilled some BBQ sauce on your shorts.

Steve Sax said...

@Neeebs: that's not BBQ sauce
