Game 46 Thread: May 23 vs. Reds, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (6-1, 1.67) vs. Brandon Finnegan (1-2, 4.44).

riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs. Today's game should have had a rested Kershaw, except Kershaw was pressed into service as a pinch hitter in yesterday's marathon against the Padres (Kershaw grounded into a forceout, advanced to second on defensive indifference but was stranded there). Kid K has won his last four stsrts, and has struck out 10+ in his last six starts, so let's hope that quick effort Sunday didn't throw off his gameday preparation any. A way a lone a last a loved along the

hate the constant reshuffling of the line up. prolly why the offense cant get into a groove like Madonna

Steve Sax said...

I hope this feeling never ends tonight.

Stripling sent down to the farm. Tsao to the DL. Bolsinger and Avilan called up. Urias still shutting down Triple A. 4-1, 1.10 ERA,44Ks, 8 walks,5 earned runs,44 innings pitched

karen said...

Glad to see Tsao go even if it's just to the DL.

spank said...

i would have rather seen Baez leave. straight the fuck up

Steve Sax said...

Tsao many questions...

Vin really stressing the point Kershaw hasnt struck out all batters in this game. dude needs to relax.

karen said...

You leave Vin alone Spank!!!

spank said...

ah yes. Mary Hart. all is right with the world.

Steve Sax said...

Finnegan has a NO HITTER through two innings (0-0)

spank said...

there he goes again. sorry Karen but Vin's pissing me off. i dont care about individual numbers. only wins baby!

karen said...

Clayton breaks up the no no!!

spank said...

JT hits into double play.

spank said...

dang...Toronto is gonna beat the Lebrons again. series tied.

karen said...

I'm beginning to think we just might have a really bad team.

spank said...

nah karen,we're good. we just suck. two totally different things

karen said...

Spank...I guess it's all in how you look at the suck part!!

spank said...

what i mean is we have good players but they stink right now. they just have to play baseball hard like they play hard with their contracts. just saying.

karen said...

Okay, now I get it and I agree. Except for the bullpen but that goes without saying of course.

spank said...

weak sauce

spank said...

yes the bulklpen is suspect but they cant get all the blame when we lose games with scores like 3-2 and 2-1. thats a struggling offense. we should be scoring at least 4-5 runs a game with these players.

karen said...

That picture of Yeager trying to score with Bench blocking the plate is how they should still be playing the game. #fuckthebusterposeyrule

spank said...

what? Ellis was safe!!

spank said...

damn. Ellis is slow.

karen said...

You're scaring me Clayton!!!

spank said...

didn't even see how Kershaw made it to third and i'm sitting in front of the telly. doesnt matter. KeyKay is lame

karen said...

KeyKay needs to quit first pitch swinging.

spank said...

can we score one run this inning?

spank said...

dammit. too short of a basehit for JT to score from second

spank said...

we trade a double play for one run. and thats why we suck. no hits with risp.

karen said...

We finally get a run (on a DP)

karen said...

You're reading my mind again.

MR.F said...

Classic RISP hitting

spank said...

all that action for one run. haha. thats rich.

spank said...

feeble

MR.F said...

JAGIDP

karen said...

Mr F!!! I've missed you!

karen said...

What is that...the 4th DP we've hit into tonight?

MR.F said...

I've missed you too, Karen!

karen said...

Complete game shutout.

Just Clayton being Clayton.

Steve Sax said...

CG SHO

spank said...

holy shit! game over?! wtf? i thought it was the 7th inning

MR.F said...

Another ho-hum CGSO from Kershaw. That guy is so amazing!

karen said...
