Game 32 Thread: May 9 vs. Mets, 7p

Scott Kazmir (2-2, 5.68) vs. Steven Matz (4-1, 2.83).

Ugh, these fuckers again. Although the Dodgers have righted the ship against the NL East by taking two of three from the Blue Jays, you can bet these next four against the Mets are going to be tough, what with the Mets joining the short list of teams that have tortured the Dodgers in the post-season (a list that includes the Cards and Phils and may as well include the Giants).

HOME SWEET HOME

Steve Sax said...

Utley rests so he won't take out any Mets legs. Puig back; Kendrick lifted in the lineup; and Culberson gets a go.

Hernandez, LF
Kendrick, 2B
Gonzalez, 1B
Turner, 3B
Puig, RF
Thompson, CF
Ellis, C
Culberson, SS
Kazmir, P

Steve Sax said...

Of course, all of this is irrelevant if Kazmir plays like Kazmir.

Orel said...

Are we losing yet?

Steve Sax said...

in fact we are not!

0-0, warmups

Steve Sax said...

Hernandez leading off, with a .226 BA, followed by Kendrick .197

And Ellis is batting seventh .191, followed by Culberson .200

PLAYOFFS

karen said...

C'mere ready to start. Start counting your rosary beads...

karen said...

...too late...

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff homer by Granderson! Kazmir is already in the hole after ONE BATTER

karen said...

My daughter just asked me if Clayton was catching tonight.


Who the heck raised this kid???

Steve Sax said...

Well done, Scott. Well done

Orel said...

It's now officially a Kazmir start!

Steve Sax said...

Kazmir gets a flyout and Ks Wright, but walks Cabrera.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry, walks Cespedes

karen said...

Wow. Some of the stories of the Cuban immigrants really puts things into perspective.

karen said...

Looks like he's out.

karen said...

Good hustle though.

spank said...

Cashmere sucks

karen said...

@ Spanky

I know it's only May but we may need to get the rally thong outta the vault...

spank said...

dang Karen. it's barely the second inning and you wants the rally thong out already....i've been wearing it all day.

karen said...

Kike Puigs Granderson at second.

karen said...

@Spank...I'm thinking it oughta be good and crunchy then...I think that might be a win win situation.

spank said...

Cashmere sucks

spank said...

it's always a win when the rally thong makes a special guest appearance.

spank said...

shit man. Cashmere sucks

karen said...

Geez. My cat can do at least as good a C'mere.

karen said...

^as

spank said...

fuck. bases juiced for Mets. they gonna blow this game open here. 3-0 Mets

spank said...

haha. fucking idiot. Cespedes thrown out at second on a pop fly out. Dodgers out of this mess.

karen said...

C'mere is going to owe his defense hookers and the good gonjah tonight.

spank said...

how the fuuck is Turner not sliding into second base on that pop fly single. no hustle

spank said...

TRAYCE!!

2-run homerun

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hola ya'll. Sat down just in time to see Thompson go yard! Now if we could just get Kazmir a one-way Greyhound ticket to nowhere in particular...

spank said...

Kaz can redeem himself right here with a base hit.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

spank said...

weak sauce Kendrick.

spank said...

and of course right after the nKendrick error a double is hit to score a run.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kendrick with the error and Kazmir is still butt. Oy.

Orel said...

still butt

spank said...

Dodgers have butterfingers tonight.

karen said...

^Oy.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Culberson makes a nice play to keep it 4-2...for now.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Remember when we could score runs? Those were good times; we should try doing that again.

Steve Sax said...

Look, we're not going to win the game if Kazmir is on the mound. May as well play Culberson and Thompson and whomever else we want to package up for the next deal

Steve Sax said...

Howell pirouettes off the mound after his first pitch. what the hell is that move, jp?

spank said...

i remember last week seeing Agone smack that mascot with boxing gloves and me thinking "now only if you can smack a ball with your bat fool!"

Steve Sax said...

SF losing as well, 3-1 B8

spank said...

i just lost my stream. GODDAMMIT

Cliff Beefpile said...

AGon gets a "hit" courtesy of the LOLMets. He's startin' to piss me off though...Butter-and-Egg man, indeed. He hasn't brought so much as some Country Crock and egg whites in weeks.

Cliff Beefpile said...

When did the Mets sign Abe Lincoln to pitch for them?

spank said...

dammit Puig

spank said...

weak sauce

Cliff Beefpile said...

I fuckin' hate the Mets. Always have.

spank said...

that's a wrap


BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Steve Sax said...

We lose.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck off

Fred's Brim said...

If we aren't going to hit at home, you have to at least pitch at home
