Game 44 Thread: May 17 @ D'backs, 5p

Can We Play You Every Day, D'bags?

Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 1.74) vs. Chase Anderson (1-0, 1.69)

Dodgers look to extend their dominance over the Snakes behind Clayton Kershaw tonight. Odds are that they will. Currently the Dodgers are 23-20. Eight of those victories have come against Arizona dating back to the Australia junket in March (with only one defeat). Trivia fans will also note that Dodgers are 4-0 at Chase Field since the Pool Party.

We can't sleep on Puig. The guy has eight home runs this season, a career-high 15-game hitting streak, and a pair of 7-game RBI and extra-base hit streaks. And he's leading the team in walks, suggesting that his patience and discipline at the plate is growing. Not gonna lie, I'll be wearing my Puig t-shirt all day today and I haven't washed it since I last wore it.

Here's hoping Chase Anderson gets chased early at Chase Field!

Diamondbacks fortify...front office?!

PHOENIX -- Tony La Russa is back in the big leagues, though he won't be filling out lineup cards anytime soon.

The Arizona Diamondbacks hired La Russa as their chief baseball officer Saturday, hoping the Hall of Fame manager can help turn around the team after one of the worst starts in franchise history.

Kevin Towers should probably start working on his resume about now.

karen said...

I don't know anything about Gibby's contract status but I've talked to people who think his days are very numbered.

Steve Sax said...

We will take Gibby!

karen said...

Our very on Beach Boy Brian Wilson on pregame talking about liking to maybe hit clean up someday.

I am so over that dude was a gnat. Despite myself I really like him.

karen said...

@Sax...Wouldn't that be great having him in Dodger Blue again???

Steve Sax said...

Boston fan gets shafted. It could be worse, Dodger fans!

karina said...

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Wasn't that BWilson interview great? It was like he was nodding off after shooting heroin. Love this guy.

karen said...

@DB...I'm so glad you got to see that. I was thinking he looked like a modern day Unibomber.

barf

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

When is last time Clay gave up two triples in the same inning? Same game?

karen said...

Deep breath time Kid.

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

Three triples.

And Vin confirms it's never happened.

Fred's Brim said...

Tony LaRussa can go to hell

karina said...

do not panic, we are supposed to win

Paul said...

We are up 5 already?!? Oh wait what.

Fred's Brim said...

his first start back was good but last time out was subpar and today is like a bag of donkey dicks

Paul said...

Any hockey on? Baskeball? Golden Girls reruns?

Fred's Brim said...

Stupid walk to start the inning, then that stupid lucky single for Prado and the shitstream was turned on full blast

Fred's Brim said...

Does Clayton know he's not in Colorado?

Paul said...

Meltdown.

We can still come back if they hold them here. It is the D bags.

Paul said...

Well maybe not.

Fred's Brim said...

So much for giving the bullpen a rest this weekend.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Baseball is indeed an asshole

Fred's Brim said...

Steve Sax said...

That was not a fun workout (while listening to that second inning).

Nice bike ride, however.

Fred's Brim said...

nice double play to get out of the inning

Fred's Brim said...

Let's get 2 more this inning

Fred's Brim said...

0 is not 2

Franklin Stubbs said...

Sweet baby Jesus what do I get out of being a fan of this sport?

Fred's Brim said...

why am I still watching this?

Fred's Brim said...

Maholm's not feeling so bad anymore

Fred's Brim said...

i give up
see you tomorrow

Franklin Stubbs said...

Because we're out of all our good drugs?

Franklin Stubbs said...

And we're not allowed to have any sharp objects any more...

karina said...

I do have some insider information: the lady that catered for the Dodgers was replaced by some nutritionist and players have been complained ever since.

We need to bring Norah back to the Dodgers

Cuba has requested you wash that Puig shirt. The smell has reached their shores.

Dusty Baker said...

Even Vinny screwed up his end-of-fifth inning this day in dodgers history monologue.

Steve Sax said...

Hey now, 10-7 is still a ballgame

#ineedmydelino said...

Just caught score. Um. Is this an elaborate joke on me for attending angels game?

Orel said...

Classic Dodgers, giving us just enough hope so the inevitable disappointment is all the more crushing.

Paul said...

Game set match. These guys suck.

karen said...

That was probably the game.

Fucking Goldshit.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

It's going to take a lot of ketamine to help me forget about this.

Steve Sax said...

I will start by drinking heavily.

Dusty Baker said...

MFPGT Up!

And note that a round is on us tonight, Sax.
