Game 82 Thread: July 4 vs. Mets, 4.15p

Zack Greinke (6-2, 1.58) vs. Matt Harvey (7-5, 2.99)

Welp, throw out everything we said in the GT yesterday. Dodgers were back home after a grueling road trip, playing on a day's rest. Kershaw was taking the mound with a strong lineup behind him, up against a team that can't generate any offense. And lost.

Soooooo...I'm calling a do-over like we used to when we were playing in the streets as kids and a car or tree or something interfered with the run of play. We'll start Zack today and send Clayton to his room to think about why he's so mediocre this season.

This one's nationally televised (FOX) and on at an odd time for those of us on the Best Coast. Get those grills fired up early so the BBQ will be ready in time for the game. Oh, in case you thought I forgot:

Grienke still playing Careless Whisper as his walkup song

karen said...

Bases loaded with no outs and we manage one run. Sheesh

Fred's Brim said...

we get a run but can't do anything for real. some bad luck, some bottom-of-the-lineup hitting

Fred's Brim said...

Orel said...

Fred's Brim said...

karen said...

Welp, we made it to 4th inning before the shadow whining began

karen said...

Fuck you and your 'ticky tack' bullshit Reynolds bitching about Agon questioning that tag

Orel said...

Harvey is throwing too many pitches, his nose is bleeding, and the Dodger bats are helping him out by swinging early in the count

Orel said...

Zanky single!

karen said...

Oh my fucking gawd! SOMEBODY pull the fucking plug on Harold Reynolds and shut him the fuck up!!!!!!

Orel said...

Greinke's got a whole run of support. He'll be fine.

Orel said...

Siddown, Lagares!

karen said...

karen said...

I just love the Agon / JT selfies after the homers

Orel said...

Greinke's got two whole runs of support. He'll be fine.

karen said...

Wow, Sponge Worthy has 3 runs to work with!!

karen said...

Orel said...

Zack up with the bases loaded. He's swinging for bear.

spnk said...

karen said...

Spanky...Careless Whisper?

karen said...

Alex Torres and his funky lid

spnk said...

karen said...

Spank...I didn't know that. That song seems a little before his time but it's a great song.

spnk said...
