Game 133 Thread: Sept. 3 @ Padres, 7p

Mat Latos (4-9, 4.76) vs. Colin Rea (2-2, 5.95).

O happy day! Jose Peraza has a sore hamstring (that's the sad part, and what's up with this team and hamstrings?), and super-prospect Corey Seager is getting his long-awaited callup to the majors. What's the big deal? Take it away, Ken Gurnick:

Seager, 21, was taken with the No. 18 selection in the 2012 Draft, and he's rapidly progressed through the Dodgers' farm system. He turned heads last season by batting .352 in 80 games at Class A Rancho Cucamonga, and he followed up by hitting .345 in 38 games for Double-A Chattanooga.

Seager, a shortstop, is the younger brother of Seattle third baseman Kyle Seager, and he's batted .307 with a .368 on-base percentage and a .523 slugging mark during his Minor League career.

So let's get all Lisa Simpson and go Corey crazy!

Dusty Baker said...

Joc doesn't strike out and Chase draws a walk. A-Gon steps in against his old team.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

Er, 7-2 now.

Seager's first big-league hit is a double. Sweet swing!

Corey gets his first big league hit!

karen said...

QuadSevens said...

Four pitch walk for Grandal. Rancho time for SVS!

Orel said...

Orel said...

QuadSevens said...

11 letters and only two vowels. I don't like him.

Orel said...

4-3!

Steve Sax said...

weak sauce there SVS, but at least we get a run. 4-3 on the FC, one out

QuadSevens said...

Let's see if Seager can get his first RBI now.

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

@Quad 8:56p: aren't there three vowels there?

Steve Sax said...

Petco cheers "Let's go Dodgers!"

Steve Sax said...

3-0 to Seager

QuadSevens said...

Green light on 3-0 for the kid! Nice!

Orel said...

Corey is so dreamy!

spank said...

NEW JOK!

QuadSevens said...

Seager scores from 2nd after freezing on Ruggiano's hit. Up 6-4 now.


(Swoons)

karen said...

Purdy good debut for Corey!!

Steve Sax said...

Roenicke was hoping Corey Seager was thrown out at home...but Seager SCORES!!!

6-4 LA

QuadSevens said...

Joc was a little upset about that pop up.

QuadSevens said...

7-4 now on the throwing error by eye chart. Utley ends up on third.

Steve Sax said...

my god I can hear Utley's bones creaking as he runs to third on the error. Wow

karen said...

They need to get an oxygen mask out to Chutley!

Orel said...

Chutley!

spank said...

thank you Padres pitcher whatever your name is....eye chart

Steve Sax said...

Orel Hershiser, on the broadcast, re: Utley's baserunning: "...[Utley] cuts second base in a way that says he knows he wants to go to third, look immediately...now he's coaching himself, he's not thinking about trying to pick up Ron Roenicke, he goes, 'i know where the ball is, I see the fielder, i'll get over there.'"

More fodder for the Roenicke conspiracy theory!!!

karen said...

You guys see the way Upton looked at Chutley on that???

QuadSevens said...

Upton knows he should be out! This is ridiculous.

karen said...

Q7...Did you see his eye roll on that safe call? Very funny.

spank said...

chutley's foot wasn't on the bag

QuadSevens said...

I don't think we can get screwed any other way over replays. I've seen it all.

Orel said...

Well that was bullshit

QuadSevens said...

Everyone is arguing this one. Someone is getting tossed after this half of the inning.

spank said...

do your job right and you don't have to worry about replays. just saying.

QuadSevens said...

I did see that Karen. That was hilarious!

Orel said...

Nomar's saying that the umps are acknowledging they messed up by not ejecting anyone

QuadSevens said...

Upton's reaction is the only replay New York needed to see.

QuadSevens said...

I wanna see the replay of the bench's reaction to the safe call after the review.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck you, ump.

QuadSevens said...

Mattingly is still pissed and yelling. These umps deserve all the hate they get tonight.

spank said...

that run's on Cutley. put your foot on the bag next time,dumbass.

spank said...

chutley

Cliff Beefpile said...

Shit, that was a moon shot.

karen said...

7-6...Blue

karen said...

the madres are going to come back and win this and I'm gonna be pissed.

spank said...

Johnson vs. Kemp. this will not go well

Orel said...

Shit it's John Jimson

spank said...

alrighty then

Steve Sax said...

7-6 now. Ah yes, this is the bullpen I remember us having

Orel said...

Slick fielding by Corey!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I can't wait for that "Sports Shrines of L.A." series.

karen said...

CliffyB...Me either, I love it that they're starting with Dodger Stadium.

karen said...

yep

spank said...

oh dear





*hangs self*

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuckin' Johnson. Fuckin' Latos. Ugh.

Orel said...

Well fuck

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Karen, Yeah, I'm looking forward to all of them, but Dodger Stadium and the Coliseum are gonna be awesome. EVERYONE played at the Coliseum.

spank said...

the Johnson trade has to be the worst transaction since signing Schmidt. prolly worse.

Steve Sax said...

Jim Johnson, back to his Jim Johnsonian self

Orel said...

Well, the Dodgers did pay Schmidt $47 million.

Paul said...

I think our bullpen is not that good and that might fuck us over in October. Not sure. Still running the numbers on it.

karen said...

Salt. Wounds.

spank said...

didn't see that coming

Orel said...

Good night guys

karen said...

Night all

Steve Sax said...

We give up four runs in the bottom of the eighth. Great.

Paul said...

We suck again

Steve Sax said...

Brutal

QuadSevens said...

Beat down by the umps first, then our bullpen. Rough game.
