NLDS Game 2 Thread: October 4 vs. Cardinals, 6.30p

Zack Greinke (17-8, 2.71) vs. Lance Lynn (15-10, 2.74).

It's a little bit earlier in the postseason than I thought we'd have to experience a must-win game, but here we are. Yesterday's gut-wrenching Game 1 loss means that Zack Greinke had better have broad shoulders to keep the Dodgers in the NLDS hunt. The good news is, with the exception of Dee Gordon and Juan Uribe, all of the Dodgers starters had a multi-hit game today, with many of those hits coming off the Cardinals' #1 pitcher, Adam Wainwright.

The bad news is, Lynn is 3-1 all-time with a 4.50 ERA against the Dodgers. (Greinke is 9-4 with a 3.17 ERA against the Cardinals for his career.)

Lance Lynn has a lot of Ls in his name. I'd like to give him another one today.

Orel said...

Love you, Adam LaRoche

Orel said...

Why obviously?

Tim Brown ‏@TBrownYahoo 11m11 minutes ago

Joe Torre says no warnings to start game in LA tonight. And, obviously, no suspension for Yadi.

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

Orel said...

Zimmermannnnnn going for the CGSHO. Starts the 9th with 88 pitches

Hideo Nomo said...

Maybe "obviously he wasn't suspended because he's in the lineup," not "it's obvious he shouldn't be suspended for his actions."

Orel said...

Orel said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Dodgers might have gotten their dicks kicked in the dirt last night, but at least they did it in regulation play. Fuck extra innings!

spank said...

Orel said...

Good job, Clippers

karen said...

Ump needs to be tossed.

Orel said...

Great job, Cabrera. Get yourself thrown out of the game

Orel said...

The Giants are going to win this, aren't they

Orel said...

Black Eyed Peas song or Star Wars quote

Orel said...

Winning run on second for Nats with 1 out.

I think Dee might be feeling the yips a little.

karen said...

Walk away Yasiel. Molina is a punk ass.

Orel said...

Nats have two on, two out

karen said...

Good catch Matty!!

Orel said...

Crawford thought there were two out? Nice focus, Carl

spank said...

No Joe Buck so that's a plus. Sounds like Harold Reynolds is still color commentating though. That mumbling son of a bitch.

Orel said...

Zack throwing too many pitches. Cardinals know to take a lot

karen said...

All's well going to bot of 2.

Orel said...

27 pitches through 2

Yep. He's beyond woeful.

karen said...

Carpenter looks like a meth tweeking serial killer.

spank said...

Orel said...

Orel said...

Postseason baseball is s l o w

Orel said...

Not yet, Stubbs

spank said...

karen said...

Stubbs...I don't know if it's safe but come join us on the dark side anyway.

Orel said...

No challenge?

karen said...

Zack should get second here.

spank said...

karina said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

karen said...

Yeah, fuck you Holliday.

karen said...

Cards dealt with.

spank said...

nice inning by Greinks

spank said...

damn. just fair. dude got lucky

Orel said...

Sons of Steve Garvey ‏@sosgsosg 2m2 minutes ago

Cardinals get their first sign-stealer of the game.

spank said...

didn't steal that sign

Orel said...

Who knew D.C. had a marine layer?

karen said...

That OTHER game is still going.

Steve Sax said...

I am totally freaked out here.

I've totally changed my setup at home. I'm not watching the game online. I have a new Dodgers hat on. I'm doing Gameday on my iPhone from a different room.

I'm not moving.

karen said...

I missed it. AJ took a bad foul off the mask?

Steve Sax said...

Ellis' average drops with that ground out

Drops from .833 that is

karen said...

Sax...It's working. Stay put.

Steve Sax said...

Ironically, Ellis is still hitting worse than Greinke (1.000)

karen said...

DON'T DIVE HEAD FIRST ZACK!!!

Orel said...

Fuckin' Greinke going from 1st to 3rd with a headfirst dive!

Steve Sax said...

@karen: I'm not moving!

The only problem is, when I see long pauses like the challenge on the Dee Gordon almost GIDP, I start freaking out

Steve Sax said...

Gordon finally breaks through

Orel said...

Lynn paused so long I thought my feed froze up

karen said...

Lynn at 80 pitches.

Orel said...

Game in D.C. is turning into a classic. Let's hope it has a classic ending

spank said...

Fuck,Puig! Come on man

karen said...

Lets hope the giants shoot their whole wad tonight and lose anyway.

spank said...

that sucked

Orel said...

Puig needs to step up. They're in his head

Orel said...

If it's any consolation, Bryce Harper is 0 for 7 tonight

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, that's gonna haunt us

karen said...

On the SNLA pregame show they were saying that Wainwrong threw at Yasiel to get in his head and take him out of his game.

karen said...

I'm scared.

karen said...

Brandon FUCKING Belt.

spank said...

sit the fuck down Holliday

Franklin Stubbs said...

I absolutely hate that head-game bullshit. Win the game between the lines and shut up.

Orel said...

Shit in D.C. Hell yeah in L.A.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Every damn break goes those guy's way.

Orel said...

#devilmagic

spank said...

don't get cute,Greinke. just pitch,mofo

Orel said...

Kevin Baxter ‏@kbaxter11 27s28 seconds ago

Kershaw was at 80 pitches when he blew up Friday. Greinke is at 83 now after walking Adams. #Dodgers #NLDS

karen said...

Great change by Zack.

Orel said...

nassssssty

karen said...

BIG K FOR ZACK!!!

spank said...

Beast

Franklin Stubbs said...

Thank the gods!

Orel said...

Thank the Jeter!

Orel said...

Booing CP3 could become a tradition at Dodger Stadium

karen said...

YEAH MATTY BABY!!

spank said...

if the Nats tie it up in the top of the bottom of the 18th,do they go into penalty kicks?

spank said...

nice typing there,spank

Franklin Stubbs said...

We've got to win this, if only because the Cards will just roll over for the fucking Giants like last time.

If we want it done right, we're gonna have to do it ourselves.

spank said...

I'M DOWN FOR THAT TRADITION,OREL!

karen said...

Strut your free agent stuff HanRam

spank said...

gotta score some runs here. Just got to.

spank said...

Damnit,Crawdude

karen said...

Lynn getting ripe for the pickin'

spank said...

come on,Urine!!! hit the shit outta the ball

karen said...

Table set for Zack.

spank said...

Do it,Greinke!! Just do it!!!

spank said...

Dammit. made them sweat but dammit

karen said...

Leaving the bases juiced. That might not be good.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, that's gonna haunt us

Franklin Stubbs said...

Nats do nothing. It's all on us.

Orel said...

Fucking Nats

karen said...

Fucking Gnats.

karen said...

Damn you Orel. Well, kind of.

Orel said...

Ha!

spank said...

winning it all while going through the Cards,Gnats and Angels would be the sweetest Championship ever.

Orel said...

GOOD JOB ZACK

spank said...

now get some runs ya Bums

Orel said...

Amen, Spank. But the most ulcer-inducing championship ever as well

spank said...

true dat,Orel. Milk purchases would spike up 1000 percent in So Cal.

Steve Sax said...

They keep pitching Gordon down and away

karen said...

Orel & Spank...And Pepto

spank said...

Mart Hart just sent me a text. She said John Tesh is a douchebag.

Orel said...

Man, Puig has just been terrible

spank said...

Puig is not good tonight

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm resigned to having to deal with SF, but if The OC team gets through, I'm going to be slightly miffed.

Greg said...

Puig's first golden sombrero?

spank said...

Puig is not good tonight

Orel said...

Shit. Two runs might not cut it

spank said...

Apple II action at it's finest right now.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Would've though 9 runs would cut it, but hey, this is our life now...

Orel said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez now6 seconds ago

Greinke returns to mound for the eighth inning.

Greg said...

Nope. Not the first by any means.

karen said...

Stubbs...You mean the LOS ANGELES Angels of Anaheim??

Yeah, fuck you too Arty Morales.

Franklin Stubbs said...

What could possibly go wrong?

karen said...

Atta boy Zack. Great job tonight.

Orel said...

Zack out

Franklin Stubbs said...

The Tustin Angels of Irvine-adjacent? Yeah, that's them.

spank said...

i would have left Greinke in. I also would have left Kershaw in last night so what the fuck do I know.

Orel said...

And it begins

Franklin Stubbs said...

Leaving pitchers in too long is a time-honored tradition

karen said...

Nobody Taveras gets the hit off JP.

karen said...

Fucking Tweeker.

Here we go.

Orel said...

FUCK

spank said...

yep

Franklin Stubbs said...

You were saying?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Life is suffering.

karen said...

Zack's brilliant night undone.

Steve Sax said...

Whatever pitching choice Mattingly makes, it is always wrong.

Orel said...

Wow. Two runs on what, four pitches?

karen said...

Bronx cheers for Donnie??

Steve Sax said...

Fucking pull Howell you fucking idiot Donnie

Greg said...

He going to have a lot of 'splaining to do.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's League? Swell.

spank said...

$200 million roster. Five and Dime manager.

Steve Sax said...

I am so done with mattingly. When met jeny brought in that pitcher to relieve wainwright yesterday, and he have up two straight walks, he immediately yanked him. Donnie can't make a good pitching decision

Steve Sax said...

^metheny

spank said...

Watchale! The gas tanks are full and the fire trucks are in the shop for repairs.

Hollandsworth said...

Stepping in just to express my outright disgust over these last two games.

If we lose this series, Mattingly's gone. No doubt.

Orel said...

Mattingly has nothing to work with
