Game 150 Thread: Sept. 15 @ Rox, 5:30p

Closest thing to a pun I could find for the opposing pitcher

Roberto Hernandez (2-3, 4.75) vs Christian Bergman (2-3, 4.889 ERA)

Roberto Hernandez at Coors Field: What could possibly go wrong? As prescient as Dodgers' coaching staff was to set up the rotation of Ryu, Greinke, and Kershaw against the Gnats over the weekend, the down side of that means we get Fauxto and a pitcher to be named later (likely Frias) to start this series against the Rockies. As bad as the Rox are, we'll still of course need to keep pace with the Giants, who take on the nearly equally as shitty D'bags. Three games ahead going into tonight is better than two, or one, or being behind (that comment inspired by Magic Johnson's twitter account), but that lead doesn't seem like a very good cushion to me yet.

It seems more like:
Than:
Let's hope the team doesn't have a post-SoSG Fest 2014 hangover and gets the job done in Denver. If not, I know a lot of places there to have some craft beer and drive away that hangover the old fashioned way.

I'll be checking in on our boys in blue from behind the orange curtain tonight. Let's get this winning streak going!

Orel said...

OC in general or Angel Stadium?

QuadSevens said...

Angel Stadium. Dodgers hat will be on since it's a Los Angeles stadium right? =)

karen said...

TWC announced today that it will broadcast the last 6 games of the season on KDOC to make Dodgers available to everyone.

That's certainly kind of them but why just the last 6? If they can do that, surely they can televise the last 13. Ya think??

Dusty Baker said...

No shit, Karen? That's some breaking news!

Dusty Baker said...

ps- Do I get KDOC?

Dusty Baker said...

Matty hits his 21st HR to make it 2-0 ten Fauxto starts throwing to make it 2-1 after one.

Dusty Baker said...

^then

karen said...

@DB...You do get KDOC. Look at Dodgers Insider site. I think that's where I saw a list for other providers and what channel KDOC was on each one.

Matty hit a homer?? I missed it!!

karen said...

Shit. Rox tie it up.

Dusty Baker said...

He did, and Bergman was like "Back, back, back, back, back, back, back....gone!"

Just like the HR that Fauxto just have up to Rosario Dawson to make it 2-2.

karen said...

My spidey sense is telling me that Hernandez may not be the answer.

Dusty Baker said...

He's not even the question, much less the answer.

karen said...

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. My spidey sense never fails me.

Dusty Baker said...

That's why I led with that thought for the GT. Writes itself.

Fred's Brim said...

I think Hernandez has taken a time machine to pre-humidor Coors

karen said...

Hopefully Hernandez will at least be able to eat up some innings and not wipe out our bullpen.

Fred's Brim said...

CC with a Coors triple

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe grounder to third can't score the run

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

No, sadly, there really are the current humidor days.

Fred's Brim said...

AJ receives the 1-pitch intentional walk

spank said...

or you can stream the Dodgers games illegally like i've been the last few games

Dusty Baker said...

Every time we play at Rox I always think abt and chuckle when FB years ago was telling a story and described a person as "The kind of guy who really liked Dante Bichette."

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not above illegality but I haven't been able to get anything to work.

But enough about my staff. Hiyo!

Fred's Brim said...

Gonna need to score 15 more runs I think

Fred's Brim said...

never trust a guy who really likes Dante Bichette

Fred's Brim said...

I think Matt Guerrier's stink is still on that 55 jersey

spank said...

i can't get psyched up for a series against the Rockies.

karen said...

Hernandez pitching at Coors has all the makings of a nightmare. We're on very dicey ground here.

Fred's Brim said...

Is Bergman Jacob deGrom's evil twin?

Fred's Brim said...

@spank I can only get nervous playing the Rockies

Fred's Brim said...

The Return of Paco

Fred's Brim said...

Paco Pt 2: The Paconing

Fred's Brim said...

phew!

Fred's Brim said...

Dee with the perfectly placed pop double

Fred's Brim said...

Dee with a toothpick?

Fred's Brim said...

Is that new or have I not been paying attention?

Fred's Brim said...

Dee is a toothpick, I know. Maybe he is doing it for contrast, to make himself look bigger

Fred's Brim said...

Puig with a warning-track fly to right, Dee tags to third

Fred's Brim said...

Puig is pissed that didn't go out

Fred's Brim said...

Can Adrian not K against this soft-tossing righty?

Fred's Brim said...

please

Fred's Brim said...

he doesn't! he hits a double into the right-field corner, Dee scores. 3-2 good guys

Fred's Brim said...

Any player with normal legs would have stretched that to a triple but that's OK

Fred's Brim said...

Matty grounds to short for the second out

karen said...

FB...I missed seeing Dee and his DBT imitation but I haven't seen the toothpick look before either.

Fred's Brim said...

man, I don't think Bergman has topped 90 all night. How do we have 7 Ks already?

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, maybe I was just seeing things

Fred's Brim said...

OK I need bed before I konk out.
Get this win, boys and girls!

karen said...

Dee showing no fear with Yasiel pounding the grass behind him.

karen said...

Nite, FB!!

karen said...

Rox tie it up. Again.

karen said...

karina said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO! , still no outs!

spank said...

spank said...

spank said...

karina said...

spank said...

the rout is on again.

karen said...

WTF?? I run my daughter to work and come back to a 11-3 game!
