Game 129 Thread: Aug. 21 vs. Padres. 7p

Tyson Ross (11-11, 2.70) vs. Clayton Kershaw (14-3, 1.86 ERA)

Last night's game got us all feeling a little salty, and cussin' like ship captains. I'm too at sea (and lazy) to run down the litany of woes we face, but it does feel like there's a storm brewing off the port side.

However, our man Kid K takes the mound tonight. He finds himself starting a day early because Zanky's scheduled start has been pushed back until Saturday due to elbow soreness. If there is ever a time to turn this ship around, it's now. And Kershaw is the man to do just that.

No truth to the rumor that Anchor Steam will be my first beer of choice tomorrow night at the Yard, to put another nail in the coffin of this crappy pun meme.

The real meme? Period instead of comma in the headline

Steve Sax said...

If we win, we'll continue that syntax

Fred's Brim said...

WOOP let's win tonight!

Steve Sax said...

SF loses the resumed game. Order restored

Fred's Brim said...

Which will me more: the number of games Texas will win this year or the number of Simpsons episodes I'll be recording during their current marathon on Fxx?

Fred's Brim said...

Homer at the Bat is at 11:30 tomorrow morning, Season 4 begins at 3:30pm tomorrow

Fred's Brim said...

god I miss Phil Hartman

Dusty Baker said...

That first Yard beer is still 20 mins away, alas.

Fred's Brim said...

That's a long beer line!

Dusty Baker said...

Nice one, FB.

Sitting here at right field bar. (Shocker!) Young guy comes up and orders a martini. Weird, but I respect that. Alicia asked him what kind of vermouth he wanted. He paused and said whatever is sweet. Then went on to say it wasn't for him, that it was for his grandmother. Wow. I want to meet and hang out with her. Neeebs' mom, watch out.

Beer check: good ole fashioned Sam Lager

Fred's Brim said...

Nice olé, Gyorko

Fred's Brim said...

Beer check: saving the Leffes in the fridge for Mrs. FB

Fred's Brim said...

CC runs down the Medica fly out

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton still battling his command

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Clayton, figure it out

Fred's Brim said...

After a walk, Clayton induces a broken-bat double play

Dusty Baker said...

Hat shuffle in the second inning? WTF?

Fred's Brim said...

Matty draws a 4-pitch walk

Fred's Brim said...

Gyorko with a soft throw after a soft grounder from CC, Matty out at second, CC safe at first

Dusty Baker said...

Matty clearly favors that ankle. He was nearly limping when he "jogged" back to dugout.

Don't know if he was to the point of crying though.

Fred's Brim said...

CC nailed at second after Vin had talked about how Ross was a pitcher you could steal on. And of course Turner singles after that

Fred's Brim said...

Ross Ks after fouling off a few pitches, good inning for Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

Dee with a 2-out single
Let's see if Puig gives him a chance to steal

Fred's Brim said...

wow, Dee thrown out by a mile

Fred's Brim said...

another good inning for Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian is the first to hit it in the air but flies to left

Fred's Brim said...

Kemp pops to right on the very next pitch, Ross only throws 5 pitches in the 4th

Dusty Baker said...

QUIT SWINGIG AT THE FIRST FUCKING PITCH! How hard is it to teach these guys that concept?

Dusty Baker said...

On Kiss Cam tonight, dude acted like he didn't want a kiss from his girlfriend. Then they ha a quick peck. THEN he grabbed her head and slammed it into his crotch. Crowd was stunned. People still murmuring.

Fred's Brim said...

another good inning for Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

Kiss Cam or Rape Cam?

Fred's Brim said...

Carl starts off with 2 straight balls but swings through 3 more

Fred's Brim said...

another first pitch out

Fred's Brim said...

not much happening with our bats or legs tonight

Fred's Brim said...

and Ross gets the first Padres hit

Fred's Brim said...

we can't seem to get pitchers out these days

Fred's Brim said...

Ross lucky to not get picked off

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton K's Solarte to end the inning

Fred's Brim said...

jeez, Clayton, I would think at least you would take a few pitches

Fred's Brim said...

this feels like bad news

Fred's Brim said...

Almonte with a leadoff single
Is where they get the run for the third 1-0 loss of the night?

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, Clayton follows with a walk

Fred's Brim said...

Medica flies to deep center, Almonte tags up and goes to third

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton bounces a curve, Gyorko makes it over to second

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, Rivera with a single to score Almonte, game called due to lack of Dodger ability to score

Fred's Brim said...

how are we so bad at home? that has to even out, right? It will probably even out with us losing all of the rest of our road games

Fred's Brim said...

Liriano strikes out for the second out
Finish this off, Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

bouncer to third to end the inning. Maybe we can take a lesson on how to grind out a run

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

This is a new low

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 5-3

We are down 1-0

COME ON PEOPLE

Fred's Brim said...

Liriano looks ugly making a catch catching a decently-hit ball by Adrian

Fred's Brim said...

this a 6-run 1-run lead

Fred's Brim said...

we are 0-46 this season when trailing after 7

Fred's Brim said...

good inning for Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

Crawford with a chopper off Ross' glove, called safe

Fred's Brim said...

How about let's not get thrown out on the basepaths, mmkay?

Fred's Brim said...

WOOOOOHOOOO!!!!!!!
Justin Turner with a 2R homer!

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Dre up to pinch hit for Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton finishes with 103 pitches after coming back on 4 days rest

Fred's Brim said...

Dre can't lay off the low stuff

Fred's Brim said...

Dee Ks, on to the 9th

Fred's Brim said...

I really hope Kenley is back on track after a few days off

Fred's Brim said...

Kenley Ks Almonte for out #1

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, Kenley walks Gyorko after getting squeezed on a pitch, old friend/pain in the ass Seth Smith up

Fred's Brim said...

Will Venable in to run for Gyorko

Fred's Brim said...

Smith flies out to CC, 2 down

Fred's Brim said...

Grandal up to pinch hit for Rivera. Vin says that Grandal has had some relative success against Kenley in the past

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is it over?

Fred's Brim said...

Venable steals second

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

We make party? Yes?

Fred's Brim said...
