Series Thread (Games 131-133): August 29-31 @ Rockies

Can we keep on rolling over the Rockies?

8/29, 5:30p: Kenta Maeda (13-7, 3.37) vs. Jon Gray (8-6, 4.61)
ROCKIES 8, DODGERS 1

8/30, 5:30p: Rich Hill (10-3, 2.09) vs. Tyler Anderson (4-5, 3.69)
RAINED OUT

8/31 GAME 1, 12n: TBD Ross Stripling (3-5, 4.13) vs. Tyler Anderson (4-5, 3.69)
ROCKIES 7, DODGERS 0

8/31 GAME 2, 5p: Rich Hill (10-3, 2.09) Bud Norris vs. Jeff Hoffman (0-2, 8.10)
DODGERS 10, ROCKIES 8. Dodgers, down 8-2 to start the 8th, score 8 runs over the last two innings — capped by Andrew Toles' two-out grand slam in the 9th. Holy shit! [Orel]

After taking two of three from the rival Giants and potential playoff opponent Cubs, the Dodgers appear to be plugging along, with today's playoff odds at 98%. But aside from the first game of the homestand, the wins didn't come from continued potency of our offense. Let's see if a three-game series at Coors Field provides that remedy to our bats.

Pride of Dong said...

rain rain go away, we need Reddick to suck so Puig will come back today!

Orel said...

Reddick has got you covered!

spank said...

Red Dick. why come i barely caught that?

Pride of Dong said...

What happens when Red dick crashes into oyster pubes at home plate?

Steve Sax said...

Reddick has been an absolute disaster on the field, but he's also a disaster in iphone autocorrect. I have to correct his name every time I type it in. All the more reason why he may be better not on the Dodgers

Orel said...

Dodgers strand two in the 1st

Steve Sax said...

well that's not good. Hundley HR makes it 2-0 Col, end 4

Steve Sax said...

where are our damn bats????

Orel said...

Casual flip by Utley on the DP opportunity costs the Dodgers a run as the next batter homers. 2-0 Rox

Orel said...

Dodgers strand two in the 5th

Orel said...

Dodgers strand one in the 6th

Orel said...

Steve Sax said...

Puig claimed off waivers by unknown team? (NBC sports)

Steve Sax said...

same story, ESPN

Steve Sax said...

GAME 2
Hernandez, LF
Kendrick, 2B
Turner, 3B
Segedin, 1B
Ruiz, C
Reddick, RF
Culberson, SS
Toles, CF
Hill, P

No A-Gon, Utley, Seager, or Joc. Hmm.

Steve Sax said...

or Grandal

Orel said...

white-flag lineup

spank said...

Interesting...on all fronts.

Orel said...

including the storm front

Steve Sax said...

Lineup that makes you pray for a rainout

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

DBT reporting from Atlanta. Sources here have no insight if Puig was claimed by the Bravos. ps, Final score from here 7-2 Braves. Bison looking a bit chunky these days. too much southern cooking I suspect.

Orel said...

Good stuff, DBT. Have some peach cobbler for us

Orel said...

rained out

Steve Sax said...

Giants were up 1-0, then snakes scored 4. Now it's 4-2 In the seventh

Steve Sax said...

Giants lose 4-3. They score one in the bottom of the ninth but Pubes makes the final out 4-3

Fred's Brim said...

yay for rainouts!
Did pitchers warm up then not pitch? Is Hill available today?

Fred's Brim said...

boo for doubleheaders!
Please don't get swept

Steve Sax said...

Middle 2, we are already losing

Fred's Brim said...

why can't we hit anymore? Did everyone get hit on the hand?

Orel said...

Easy boys, there's a lot of losing to do today

Orel said...

although AGon has been a defensive god so far this game

Steve Sax said...

Still losing but worse now

Fred's Brim said...

I would be interested to see how often a team loses when they give up walks, hits and RBIs to pitchers

Fred's Brim said...

Giants already leading

Fred's Brim said...

Stripling begging for a bullpen game

Fred's Brim said...

Fucking lefties

Orel said...

The team is playing poorly in anticipation of Kershaw's return

Fred's Brim said...

jesus, double-play hittin into mofos

Fred's Brim said...

"gotta get back to that .500 ball we were playing"

Fred's Brim said...

we definitely aren't winning both of these games. I hope we can at least get one

Fred's Brim said...

I don't hate that Wes Anderson-lite Alec Baldwin/Jason Schwartzman pingpong Amazon Echo ad but I don't need to see it anymore

Fred's Brim said...

Clean innings be DAMNED!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Wolters bunting ahead of the pitcher hmm

Fred's Brim said...

what the hell is wrong with Kiké? Is he fake healthy? Or just never got back into a groove after sitting so much this year?

Orel said...

His father is undergoing cancer treatment. Maybe he's distracted?

Orel said...

If we win one of two today they should just award us both wins

Steve Sax said...

meanwhile SF is up 2-0

Orel said...

SF 2, ARI 0, bot 2

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

Kike's bat has been horrible. He's even worse than Ellis, and we all know what happened to him.

Steve Sax said...

Oh, btw:

GAME 2 (for real)
Kendrick LF
Seager SS
Turner 3B
A-Gon 1B
Segedin RF
Hernandez CF
Ruiz C
Culberson 2B
Stripling P

looks a lot better than what we had said yesterday

Orel said...

Stripling settling down?

Steve Sax said...

@FB: i still can't see Baldwin's paddle move, even on the hundredth time. that's amazing

Orel said...

DannyKnobler 1m

Only Marlins (8) have more blown saves this month than Red Sox (7). Rockies, DBacks also have 7.

Orel said...

Kendrick leads off the 6th with a single up the middle! Will he get doubled up?

Fred's Brim said...

HOLY sheeeit, a 1-2-3 inning

Fred's Brim said...

heh heh Knobler

Fred's Brim said...

Corey says fuck a double-up! By striking out

Orel said...

Turner singles! 1st & 3rd, one out

Fred's Brim said...

Turner singles, stupidly leaving open the chance for a double play

Orel said...

Are we just bad or are the Rockies good? And if the Rockies are good, then why are they so bad?

Fred's Brim said...

Segedin will save us!
:(

Orel said...

No GIDP. Another moral victory!

Orel said...

YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO GUESS WHAT HAPPENED

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel, they always feel to me like that team that won like 15 straight games at the end of the season. Like if they just pick up a little momentum, they can always go on a big run. I don't feel that way about other bad teams

Fred's Brim said...

The rare double play that leaves us with only 2 outs for the 7th?

Orel said...

Segedin's not going to win the Gold Glove this year. 3-0 Rox

Fred's Brim said...

hey let's give them some more runs to work with

Orel said...

@FB: Or maybe we're just bad.

Steve Sax said...

now it's 3-0 COL. We have no bats

Orel said...

Well it's not like Coors Field is easy to hit in

Fred's Brim said...

3 innings to score 3 runs in Colorado - seems possible right?

Sadly, possible and likely are 2 different things

Orel said...

Culberson will save us!

Steve Sax said...

top 7, two on, one out: this is our only chance

Steve Sax said...

Yaz Ks, of course

Orel said...

ugh

Orel said...

We are bad.

Orel said...

TONIIIIIIGHT

Steve Sax said...

And just after Yaz and Kendrick both K with RISP, Rox come out and lead off with a homer

4-0 COL

Fred's Brim said...

Orel said...

Standing in right field, Josh Reddick cocks his head. "Someone just booed me on the internet. I must try harder!"

Orel said...

So many mental mistakes. Seager lets on get by, Toles boots it. 6-2 Rox

Orel said...

Next time we should just forfeit and give the players a three-day rest

Steve Sax said...

Criminal, we are going to be tied by the weekend

Steve Sax said...
