Game 145 Thread: Sept. 9 vs. Padres, 7p

Roberto Hernandez (8-10, 4.00) vs. Andrew Cashner (2-7, 2.39).

Did you know Babe Ruth was a first-base coach for the Dodgers in 1938? The thinking was that 76 years later, the Dodger franchise could take advantage of this fact and make a fortune with Ruth bobbleheads. That plan comes to fruition at Dodger Stadium tonight. Congrats on playing the long game, guys.

Also coming to Dodger Stadium is Cashner, who has never given up a home run to the Dodgers. Ever. In 46 innings the Dodgers are dingerless against Cashner. Who will step up to the plate tonight and invoke the spirit of the Babe, calling his shot? My money's on Puig.

Cory Spangenberg? Really?

Fred's Brim said...

Phew, Gyorko hits a laser right at CC after Grandal hits a 2-out double

Fred's Brim said...

Corey?

karina said...

Épale everyone!

have a question: does Vinny need to talk about Posey eeeevery game?

Orel said...

Épale, all. Hanley SB!

Fred's Brim said...

@karina, yes, until Paul Goldschmidt gets healthy and starts playing well again

"Is that an oyster in your pubes or are you just happy to see me?"

Greg said...

Lucked out with Field, Section 7, Row B. Apparently Ericc Karros' seats.

Orel said...

You have to be ready to pinch hit if you use those seats, Greg.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh for fuck's sake.

Fred's Brim said...

wow, our fielding has been terrible

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton had flashbacks after seeing that shitshow

Franklin Stubbs said...

Indeed.

Fred's Brim said...

and giving up doubles to pitchers is unacceptable

Fred's Brim said...

how is that Puig's error? I guess you gotta give it to somebody

Fred's Brim said...

The way Cashner is pitching, game over.
Gnite all

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hernandez does not appear to be the answer either. Not that the infield circus is in any way excusable.

Steve Sax said...

Criminy guys, get it together

And wake the hell up Hernandez

Orel said...

There's no Rymer reason to this team

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, I see how it is…

Games like this I'm glad I don't have TWC Sports Net...

karina said...

hey, hope on the Dodgers because the D-Backs aren't helping

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

But even on games like this Vin is still story weaving.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

5-zip Madres?!?? Good grief

karina said...

I thought Derek Jeter was the greatest baseball player ever, Vinny broke my heart :(

karina said...

Alexi Amarista, Aguilas and Dodgers killer :(

Steve Sax said...

Fuck, Hernandez is giving us a loss. And giants are winning 3-0

Hideo Nomo said...

Hideo Nomo said...

Gordon 2B
Ramirez SS
Gonzalez 1B
Kemp RF
Crawford LF
Uribe 3B
Puig CF
Ellis C
Hernandez P

Hideo Nomo said...

Hopefully it's not too late.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Lattes?

spank said...

Great Gonzo! 2 run homer

spank said...

MKW's man with a follow up double.

Steve Sax said...

Come on Jamey, keep us close

rbnlaw said...

How about that Gonzalez homer?

Too late?

Seriously, less than 40 comments on a GT? I blame myself.

In honor of Jedd Gyorko's night against the Dodgers:

Let me tell the story 'bout a Pad named Jedd
Poor small market player
Barely kept his Lexus fed
Then one day, he up and said "screw you!"
And he signed with the Dodgers
And moved to Malibu
Free agency that is
Lotta bucks
Moola, moola

Even if I could see this game with Uverse, I'd still be watching America's Got Talent.

(not really) (and apparently America has very little talent)

rbnlaw said...

And thanks to my new Surface Pro3, I can actually add to a GT. Much easier than using the "mobile device."

Now back to this one. . .

Rancho Two-ondo for Dee

rbnlaw said...

Thanks a pantload, Dee.
2 down.

rbnlaw said...

How did Ethier get on you ask?

HBP, naturally.

rbnlaw said...

Hanley did the "in-play; outs" thing.

Lead back to 2 games.

Le sigh.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Donnie Baseball has a band? Puig Destroyer

Steve Sax said...

Lead is 2.5 games because we picked up a half game yesterday (SF idle)

Steve Sax said...

post-game thread up

spank said...

Holy shit! An rbnlaw sighting.
