Game 45 Thread: May 26 vs. Braves, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (2-3, 4.32) vs. Julio Teheran (4-1, 3.91).

Little known fact here, that Julio Teheran's real last name is Pinto. And we know what happens when Pintos experience a little bit of pressure (see above), right? Not that we're putting even more pressure on our ace, Clayton Kershaw: his 87 ERA+ this year is on track to be a career low, even worse than his highly aberrant 5-5 rookie season of 2008.

From a BHWT belt perspective, in case you're keeping score: if the Brewers can win the last two against the Giants, and then beat the Diamondbacks but lose to the Cardinals June 1-3, we can come back and regain the belt June 4-7. Winning today...would have no impact on the belt per se, but would still be good to secure the series.

And if you're going to the game tonight, we recommend that you be there at least 45 minutes before first pitch, especially at this time of year.

Giants up 1-0 on the Brewers in the third

Jason said...

Bees up 2-0 on OK through 2.

Greg said...

I'm here one hour before 1st pitch. Where do I pick my swag?

Jason said...

OKC now up 5-2 and chased the Bee's starter after their 9th hit in just 3.2 innings.

Jason said...

Make that 7-2 and the carrot won the produce race - which an actual thing - in the middle of the 4th.

Orel said...

Uribe trade is back on

karen said...

I heard earlier trade was off. Now on again....are we going to get anyone for him???

Oh yeah. I hate this new comment shit thing.

Steve Sax said...

Bad guys up 5-1 on MIL in the 6th

Jason said...

Uribe deal is done per Ken Rosenthal on the twitters

spnk said...

tonights game is on ESPN and Charter Cable.

omgee omgee

Greg said...

Pending MLB approval.

Jason said...

Yeah, must be more than $1M in salary offsets going in one direction.

karen said...

Yeah, The Dodgers must be offering up Uribe, 1 mil and all the Dodger Dogs Atlanta can eat.

spnk said...

nice fucking slide and base running Guerrero. fucking hell.

karen said...

Juan who??? JT looking like quite the stud over there at the hot corner.

Dusty Baker said...

Terrible sequence with the Guerrero "slide," terrible bunt attempt by Kershaw, throw out at 2nd...That is pure Mattingly. Why are you even thinking of running Guerrero (who had a lead like he was going to try to steal) when just a second before it was unclear if he had torn off his own ankle?

karen said...

I love you, Vinny. Now please stop talking about that which should not be mentioned.

Dusty Baker said...

Stop trying to get all base-stealie tonight. We don ’t have the speed or base-running IQ.

Greg said...

An example of the infield fly rule as Simmons intentionally drops the ball.

karen said...

Rollings just keeps rolling along!!! 1-0 Good

Dusty Baker said...

@GregNewPhoto

Yes, and alas another ensuing hourlong conversation with my wife and sister in law to "refresh their memory" on the infield fly rule.

karen said...

@Greg....I was wondering what was up with that, too.

karen said...

Dusty...I have tried to explain the infield fly rule to my best friend for years. She actually is a very bright lady but can't for the life of her comprehend it.

Dusty Baker said...

See what happens when we just hit and stop jacking around trying to steal bases?

spnk said...

FUCK DRE!!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

I believe there is an infield fly rule gene. You either have it or you don't.

karen said...

Where are you Spank?? Andre still lookin' for the love.

spnk said...

HOLYFUCKINGSHIT!! ELLIS!!

spnk said...

why are they sending Guerrero home from first base when his ankle is shredded beef

karen said...

AG 2 picked off at 2nd...whose bright idea was it to send him home just to be cut down again??

Jason said...

Li'l Dodgers win again, 11-5

karen said...

Oh, I guess Spanky beat me to that brilliant observation.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers score six in the fourth, and Clayton works out of a jam in the fifth. 6-0 LA. Love it

spnk said...

spnk said...

i'm about to streak up in this bitch

karen said...

AGON GETS HIS 1001 RBI on a 2 run homer. Take a bow Adrian....We love you amigo!!!

karen said...

Can anybody in God's green earth break off an Uncle Charlie like this Kid?? Just when I think I've seen his best he drops in an even better one.

spnk said...

i'm having some improper thoughts about Mary Hart and that broad sitting next to her.

karen said...

You're a red blooded American boy, Spanky. Knock yourself out!!!

MR.F said...

Yay Kershaw

karen said...

Goodbye Juan....Thanks for keeping things loose in the clubhouse. Good luck.....except when playing the Dodgers.

Dusty Baker said...

I sat behind Mary Hart a couple of weeks ago. I can report she was incredibly nice and treated everyone who walked by and said hi very nicely. She stayed almost the entire game and didn't spend her time back in the dugout club.

Dusty Baker said...

Urine Gone, indeed:

jesus colorado, lotsa shit going down today

Fred's Brim said...

I can't really figure out what it will all mean

Fred's Brim said...

But I will miss Uribe. I liked that dude, especially watching him play third. And his homer against the Braves, holy fuck

Fred's Brim said...

I guess it all went down last night. Santos got cut back today
