NLCS Game 2 Thread: Oct 16 @ Cubs, 5p

Down-to-the-wire post may help the Dodger juju. Watching these last games, it only reminds me that I can never be a manager. I questioned every move that Roberts initiated. Put Ruiz in after burning Barnes? Kenley in the 7th for three innings? Kershaw to close? And with every move, Roberts proved me wrong. So I will continue to question Roberts, as long as we keep winning. So let's get through these Cubs. Kershaw to pitch on short rest? Roberts has got to be kidding. Right? Right???

Go Blue

QuadSevens said...

Way to come through in the clutch AC!

QuadSevens said...

Kid K with the K of Bryant.

QuadSevens said...

Rizzo pops up. Nice quiet first for Kershaw.

Orel said...

1-2-3 1st for Kershaw. Really needed that

QuadSevens said...

Time for the Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest to work its magic.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Kershaw is dealing!

Orel said...

AGon HR!

QuadSevens said...

AGon!!

karen said...

AGONE!!!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

AGONE Bomb!!!

Orel said...

Ump calling the lowwwwww strike

Orel said...

Just like in Game 1 we're making contact

Orel said...

Grandal draws a walk. He needs to heat up

Orel said...

1-2-3 2nd for Kershaw

QuadSevens said...

Another 1-2-3 inning for Kersh.

karen said...

Smooth 2nd for Kid K

QuadSevens said...

Orel, you're quick on the draw tonight.

Orel said...

(blows smoke from gun)

Orel said...

Even Kershaw made contact at the plate

Orel said...

Utley making Kendricks work

Orel said...

Another lowwwwww strike. Hope Kershaw gets that call

karen said...

Bad call on Chase.

karen said...

Dammit Orel! Q7 is right, you are quick tonight.

Orel said...

Back-to-back walks to Seager & Turner

QuadSevens said...

AGon with a chance to drive in a run for us.

Orel said...

(what does one do after blowing smoke from one's gun?)

QuadSevens said...

Holster it and swagger off?

Orel said...

AGon K

Orel said...

(swaggers awkwardly)

Orel said...

Kendricks at 56 pitches thru 3

QuadSevens said...

Definitely making him work. We need to take advantage of his mistakes.

Orel said...

I know I'm biased but Joe Buck seems bored by the Dodgers

Orel said...

Although he showed some life on that last Kershaw K

Orel said...

Haven't seen Kershaw this sharp for a while. It's nice

QuadSevens said...

31 pitches for Kershaw through three.

QuadSevens said...

Seems like everyone is up on the Cubs jock lately.

karen said...

I never got over Joe Buck wearing an orange tie for a late season Game of the Week between Dodgers and frisco.

Orel said...

Even Reddick made contact!

Orel said...

I get the rest of the country wants to see the Cubs win, but we're like Rodney Dangerfield here

QuadSevens said...

Yaz seems like he's swinging too hard. Can't keep his head still to see the pitch.

Orel said...

OH SHIT THAT WAS CLOSE

Orel said...

Kershaw with 40 or 41 pitches thru 4

Orel said...

Lady Gaga looks like Amy Winehouse in that commercial

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Time for some runs

karen said...

That Rizzo shot scared the crap out of me.

Orel said...

Tolesy fooled by the off-speed stuff

Orel said...

Kershaw single!

karen said...

I really like that Toles kid.

Orel said...

I bet you didn't know...he used to work in a grocery store!!!

karen said...

I think I may have heard that story once or a hundred times!

Orel said...

Dammit. Cubs' first hit of the night

karen said...

Our Baez doesn't seem to have the same DNA as theirs.

karen said...

uh oh

Orel said...

Escapes!

karen said...

Phew!

Orel said...

AGon draws a walk to start the 6th

Orel said...

Reddick follows with a single!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Rally thongs!!!

karen said...

Rally Thong Strong!!!

Orel said...

What the fuck just happened

karen said...

ugh

Orel said...

Now the media is all up in Baez's jock.

OK, it was a great play

QuadSevens said...

They talked about that play waaaaaay too long.

Orel said...

We're thru 6, Dodgers still lead 1-0

Orel said...

People used to talk about Puig the way they do about Baez...

QuadSevens said...

When Puig pinch hits, they'll talk about his problems and not about how he got his head straight.

QuadSevens said...

Come on Chutley!

QuadSevens said...

Chutley walks on four pitches. Corey up with two on now.

QuadSevens said...

Corey lines out to left. And we're still 0 for a bagillion with RISP.

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw walks the first batter but gets the next two.

QuadSevens said...

I think Kershaw just talked Doc into leaving him in the game.

QuadSevens said...

Kenley is warming in the pen.

QuadSevens said...

Long out to center. Dodgers still up 1-0 after seven.

karen said...

Pull yer Rally Thongs high and tight believers!!

Orel said...

I wanted to kill Grandal when he dropped that foul in the 7th

Orel said...

Kenley gets thru the 8th with 10 pitches

Orel said...

Joc wocs to start the 9th

Orel said...

Steals 2nd and Grandal bunts him to 3rd

Orel said...

He's partially forgiven for dropping that ball in the 7th

Orel said...

What the fuck did Puig just do there

Orel said...

ONE DOWN

Orel said...

TWO DOWN

karen said...

WIN

Orel said...

WIN

Orel said...

DAMMIT

karen said...

You Cub fans and your silly rally caps, so 1980's. Don't you know you gots to go Thong????

Orel said...

QuadSevens said...

Great game guys! Coming home with the split. I love it!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Cubs got rally thonged tonight! We're comin' home 1-1, bishes!

spank said...

spank said...

Orel said...

Patience, we gotta replicate what we did for Game 2

spank said...
