Game 132 Thread: Aug. 24 vs. Mets, 1p

Please let this happen today.

Kevin Correia (2-0, 4.09) vs. Bartolo Colon (11-10, 3.85).

It's a beautiful day to sweep the Mets. The Dodgers have their work cut out for them, although indications are that Hanley Ramirez will be activated from the disabled list just in time to provide some run support for Correia. Although he's 2-0 as a Dodger, Correia didn't exactly fool anyone his last time out (against the Padres), when he gave up four earned runs in five innings.

And if you're going to Dodger Stadium today expecting a Matt Kemp figurine, better show up early. They're running a little short, about 15,000 figurines' worth, and vouchers will be distributed to those among the first 40,000 attendees who don't get one at the stadium.

Voucher?
I don't even know her

Dusty Baker said...

It's manly to collect figurines, isn't it? Isn't it?

Dusty Baker said...

Surely we can beat this fat sack of shite Colon today, can't we?

And should I frame every GT post as a question?

Fred's Brim said...

it's funny because colons are often fat sacks of shite

Fred's Brim said...

Great start, Matty knocks in Adrian with a 2-out single, 1-0 good guys

Fred's Brim said...

Would have been more if Tejada hadn't made some good plays for the first 2 outs

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley grounded out in his first AB back

Orel said...

A first-inning lead? I'll take it

Fred's Brim said...

Correia Ks Duda on a nasty curve

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, d'Arnaud hits a homer to center to tie it up. Puig gave it a chase

Fred's Brim said...

and Lagares hits one hard up the middle

Fred's Brim said...

Tejada foul pops to Adrian for the second out

Fred's Brim said...

that was horrendous, so unbelieveably pathetic. Young hits a hard smash that eats up Dee, he had a chance, maybe Barney makes the play, but a hit all the way. But for some reason, Kemp can't get over to cut it off and falls on his ass. By the time Puig gets to it, Lagares is scoring. How the HELL! does a hard grounder make it all the way to the wall when you aren't playing on astroturf?

Fred's Brim said...

Dre lines to Tejada

Fred's Brim said...

fucking hell, Matt. That was embarrassing.

Fred's Brim said...

Turner Ks

Fred's Brim said...

Ellis grounds to second

Fred's Brim said...

Singles from Turner and Wright, runners at 1st and 3rd

Orel said...

I think we still have a chance here

Fred's Brim said...

jesus christ, Duda hits one to the back of the pavillion, 5-1 Delino's favorite team

Orel said...

Whoops

Fred's Brim said...

I think we are seeing why Kevin Correia was leading the league in losses

Orel said...

WSH 9, SF 6, top 8

Orel said...

"Correia is a leader"

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley's D already hurting us

Fred's Brim said...

and now Tejada with a 2R home
this is absolutely horrendous

Fred's Brim said...

may as well leave Correia in and eat the innings. that's why you picked him up

Fred's Brim said...

Wright's grounder would have been fielded by a decent SS

Fred's Brim said...

well you can't win them all, especially when 3 of your 5 starters are 5th starters for terrible teams

Steve Sax said...

At least SF is losing. 9-6 Washington in the eighth

Fred's Brim said...

Barney up for Correia. Why not leave him in for a few more innings? that's why you picked him up, to replace Maholm as the shiteater out of the pen

Fred's Brim said...

Wright is out for some reason. I am out because we are playing like assholes today

Steve Sax said...

According to Steiner, David Wright left with neck spasms. Charley then went on for two minutes remarking about how poor Wright's 11th year has gone. Brutal.

Orel said...

COMEBACK

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit. How bad do the gnats have to suck to fall out of the wild card race!? Come on, asshole Braves and Pirates!

Steve Sax said...

post-game thread up

Steve Sax said...

How come no one picked up Orel's pun, "they're running a little short"?! You guys are getting old

Steve Sax said...

Get it?! Because the figurines are small?!

Ha ha ha ha
