Spongeworthy.

Zack vs. Max! It's an old-fashioned Ace-off! (Do they still do those?)

No score going to 2...

Dusty Baker said...

Man it's hot here in LA.....wait, we can't complain. Sorry DC.

karen said...

Hey Mr. Baker!! I agree, we can't be complaining about the heat here. Did you hear them talking about some of the guys taking IV's before the game?

Dusty Baker said...

Dre double!

Dusty Baker said...

I think Grandal at least will need IVs during the game.

Dusty Baker said...

Grandal bunts Dre over to third with one out here in the fourth.

karen said...

Yaz was the one that they mentioned was having one before the game and I'm thinking he and Zack will need more fluids.

1-0 on the WP!!

Dusty Baker said...

WP brings in Dre! 1-0 Blue.

Dusty Baker said...

I think I need more fluids.

karen said...

Maybe of the adult beverage kind??

karen said...

It just looks absolutely miserable there. I'll take the Cali 'dry' heat every time.

karen said...

lol...they are comparing Kid K and how drenched in sweat he was yesterday and then SpongeWorthy who today is just sailing right along with his hair flying in the breeze...

Dusty Baker said...

Seriously, it looks like Zack hasn't even broken a sweat. This is an incredible pitching performance.

Dusty Baker said...

Yasmani takes a nasty shot to the jaw and has to leave the game. AJEllis in to replace him here in the 6th. Zack is on 66 pitches.

karen said...

Bases juiced for Dre...

spank said...

fuck you Dre. you piece of crap.

karen said...

I'm not liking Zack having to stand out in the heat this inning

Dusty Baker said...

With only a 1-0 lead, and Zack having stood in the heat a long time, and Grandal knocked the fuck out, this game is tight. Squeaky bum time!

Orel said...

Pitchers' duel?

Orel said...

What happened to Grandal?

spank said...

nice fail with the bases loaded

karen said...

Orel...He took a nasty foul off the bat and into his chin

Orel said...

Thanks, Karen. Hope he's OK...he's already had a concussion, I think

karen said...

Yeah, he was out on the 7 day concussion DL...I don't think they've reported on his condition today yet...

Steve Sax said...

Hey guys. Zack looked great in that B7. Why can't we notch more than one run off of ten hits, though?!

Orel said...

Max Scherzer?

Steve Sax said...

Puig looks lost
Collaspo still does not deserve to be in a Dodgers uniform (not sure why he is playing, donnie!)
Rollins sucks

spank said...

nothing porous about Spongeworthy. dude's on fire.

Dusty Baker said...

Concur with all three statements from Saxy.

Dusty Baker said...

Orel H was making a great point re Puig not making any adjustments to the way they were pitching him, so they just kept attacking the same way.

Dusty Baker said...

Two men on with no outs to start top of the ninth.

karen said...

I would feel a whole lot better if we could tack on a few runs here...

Dusty Baker said...

I need more fluids.

karen said...

Dre coming up with RA again...

Dusty Baker said...

43.2 straight scoreless innings for Zack. Just glad to have been a witness to such brilliance.

Dusty Baker said...

DRE DAY MOFOS!

karen said...

YES!!! 2-0 Blue...

karen said...

Dre just saved Spanky a road trip to Atlanta

3-0!!

Dusty Baker said...

Now-a-days everybody wanna talk like they got somethin' to say
But nothin' comes out when they move their lips
Just a bunch of gibberish
And motherfuckers act like they forgot about Dre

Dusty Baker said...

5-0 up on dis bish! And still batting.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

Per Bill Plunkett:

Kershaw and Greinke this weekend -- 16 IP, 0 runs, 6 hits, 1 walk, 25 Ks

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho we're about to break this shit wide open-iendo!

karen said...

^^^and against a good team...

Steve Sax said...

Great top of the ninth there, scoring four and batting around!

Steve Sax said...

5-0 going to B9

karen said...

...just your average, routine double play...

karen said...

c'mon JP, slam the door shut...

karen said...
