Game 155 Thread: Sept. 20 vs. Cubs, 10a

Roberto Hernandez (8-11, 4.06) vs. Felix Doubront (2-1, 1.50).

Is it me, or are these games getting earlier and earlier? As the Dodgers go to the third game of this series, let's hope that the Wrigley Field's confines can continue to be just as friendly for the visiting team as they were in the first two games. Not hoping for much given the Dodgers throw Roberto Hernandez, 0-2 in his last three starts, supported by a bullpen which had to put in an uncharacteristic amount of work yesterday in early relief for Clayton Kershaw. Doubront has apparently impressed in his three starts since joining the rotation August 30. But look, if this one goes bad, you can just hit snooze, turn off Fox (that's right, you will actually be able to see today's game!), and go back to bed.

Dodgers' magic number:

Wakey, wakey, hands of snakey, people!

Steve Sax said...

Woke up to Dad's kind re-tweet. Thanks, Pops!

karen said...

I don't do the Twitter thing. Can someone tell me what our old man said about us??

karen said...

Wind blowing out for Hernandez.

Uh-oh.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Click on the link that Saxy posted in his comment above.

Dusty Baker said...

Lots of Dodger fans at the Yard today from an early scan of the stands.

karen said...

Thanks DB!

Dusty Baker said...

A-Went!

2-0

karen said...

AGONEEE!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Adrian yanked the shit out of that ball.

Dusty Baker said...

Matty DON'T slide into first. Can't risk injury. We're 2-0 up in the first.

Dusty Baker said...

Fauxto gives up HR to first batter. This will not go well.

QuadSevens said...

Our fears were realized on the first batter. Cubs dinger makes it 2-1 Dodgers.

karen said...

Here we go. Fauxto gives up the solo to Coghlan.

QuadSevens said...

Dammit! Got me Dusty.

karen said...

I'm getting that icky feeling in my tummy.

Dusty Baker said...

25 pitches so far for Fauxto and only one out in the first. So much for him giving the pen some time off.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Carmona, get out of this shit.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, we have two outs now!

Dusty Baker said...

Seriously, is Zach Lee shittier than Fauxto?

karen said...

It's usually not a good omen when Honey has to go out in the first inning.

Dusty Baker said...

FB I need you to jump and and say something rude about Fauxto - I just can't do this shithead any justice.

And he's fat as fuck, too. Can't even tuck in his shirt.

karen said...

And we all heave a collective sigh of relief.

Dusty Baker said...

Three outs! We make meek party. Start the god damned bubble machine.

35 pitches. Jesus colorado.

karen said...

well that was fast.

Dusty Baker said...

I feel sorry for the poor SOBs who forked out money to go see this game.

karen said...

DB...Their Cub fans. Their used to getting shit on.

karen said...

Wow. Fauxto sets them down in order.

karen said...

YO ADRIAN!! 3 run mash. 5-1 Boys.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn, Adrian. You tha MAN.

karen said...

We're going to need a lot more runs with Fauxto going.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's lay this on thick now, Justin.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Right - it's almost like even though we're ahead, we're behind, right?

Dusty Baker said...

We don't have a grand slam this season? What a stat. Rancho suckiendo.

karen said...

Dusty...It sure feels that way.

Dusty Baker said...

SlickVS brings another one in. 6-1 Blue team.

karen said...

SVS working on getting us those runs. 6-1 for the good.

Dusty Baker said...

Buh bye, Dubront. Been nice knocking you around this morning.

karen said...

C'mon Droop. Bring 'em home.

karen said...

That Derek Jeter commercial made me teary.

I know. I'm a big old weenie.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

I haven't seen the Jeter commercial yet. I'm afraid I'd like it, and all I really want to do is hateHateHATE!

spank said...

turn down the volume in here. i've gots a headache.

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry, Spanky.

(hatehatehate) *whispers*

karen said...

Wow. Circus catch by Yasiel in center.

QuadSevens said...

Great diving catch by Puig! He throws in to double up the runner on 2nd, then holds his shoulder. Uh-oh.

Dusty Baker said...

Please be ok, Puig.
Please be ok, Puig.
Please be ok, Puig.

spank said...

Puig!! what a fucking catch!

QuadSevens said...

Exactly DB. Puig's just starting to get hot again with the bat. We need him!

QuadSevens said...

Puig up to bat. First swing should be interesting.

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like he's ok!

QuadSevens said...

Puig's shoulder is good. Hits it off the top of the left center wall for a double.

QuadSevens said...

Whew!

QuadSevens said...

Juuuuust a bit outside.

QuadSevens said...

Bullpen is holding it together so far. Top of the 7th and we're still up 6-2.

karen said...

I'm starting to feel a little edgy now.

karen said...

Oh shit. Oh damn. OH FUCK.

7-6 B

QuadSevens said...

Shit! JP allows a 3 run dinger and it's now 7-6 Dodgers in the bottom of the 7th.

karen said...

^Blue.

QuadSevens said...

You were right on with your feeling Karen.

karen said...

QS...I hate it when that happens.

Dusty Baker said...

7777: "Bullpen is holding it together so far. Top of the 7th and we're still up 6-2."

JINX!

Dusty Baker said...

Brandon League is the answer.

karen said...

League in. Baseball gods don't fail us now!

League out of it.

Anyone else up for something to drink?

karen said...

Dre sighting.

Dusty Baker said...

I seriously forgot about Dre.

QuadSevens said...

Yup...I spoke too soon.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Waaaaay ahead of you. #Margaritas

karen said...

We should have rooted for the rain.

karen said...

FUCK

Dusty Baker said...

Disastrous. We give Fauxto a 7 million run lead and he fucks it up, and then every pitcher after that - save, shockingly - League - fucks it up even worse.

spank said...

unfuckingbelievable

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Dusty Baker said...

Gnomes was rooting against the rain.

karen said...

I guess it could be worse. It could be Niedenfuer and Clark all over again.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK the Cardinals!

karen said...

It seems that BWil is not the answer either.

karen said...

Why do we put ourselves through this again? Oh yeah. The glory.



*cries*

Dusty Baker said...

Son of a bad word. I am so angry. Angry Dusty. *(&@&^BOHDP(*#$Y&)*HIUDJN

karen said...

Out of it. 8-7 going to ninth. Puig, Agon and Matty coming up.

spank said...

i'm about to go all Rambo up in this bitch!

karen said...

A heart wrenching loss. I hate this.

Dusty Baker said...

Son of a mother. Sweet shit-sucking jesus, Dodgers. Sack the fuck up. Embarrassed again on national telly.

Dusty Baker said...

Cut yer hair, EK!

Dusty Baker said...

Too pissed to think about the PGT. Also, I'm too mad.

Fred's Brim said...

Goddamn you, bullpen. I hope you are fully embarrassed. Only Kenley is excused. We gotta pitch better, goddammit!

Fred's Brim said...

FB FUCKING STEAMED!

Fred's Brim said...

Wright's starting tomorrow? Bullpen games are sometimes necessary but you'd rather not have them after 3 bullpen games before it. And if you have a terrible bullpen. I guess that also means that Donnie is "saving" Haren for the Giants

Fred's Brim said...

Jamey started 1 game for Tampa last year but before that he hadn't started a game since 2007 with Texas

Orel said...

Glad I missed this one

Orel said...

SF-SD scoreless, bot 3

Steve Sax said...

Scoreboard watching this SF @ SD game. 3-0 SD with a chance for more.

Steve Sax said...

Nope, no more. 3-0 Padres through six.

Orel said...

Ah, got Scooby Doo'd

Orel said...

Giants threatening in the 9th. 3-1 Pads

Orel said...

3-2 Pads, 2 out

Steve Sax said...

Damn, Giants rallied and almost won. But they lost!
