Series Thread (Games 8-10): Apr 10,12-13 @ Cubs


We have to watch those Cub bastards hoist their World Series banner on their opening night tonight? And we have to watch them get their rings the following ni--....wait there is no game the next night of this away series. WTF? So we have to watch the banner hoisted, get angry about it on the off day, then try to keep our cool as we watch them get their rings the next night? And neither of those games will be played during the damn daytime, when Cubs games are supposed to freaking be played. Oh, also Rich Hill has a strained blister on his throwing blister that has blistered up, so he's scratched for the opener against Jon Lester. What can go wrong in this series? Dusty mad already.

4/10, 5:05p: Alex Wood vs Jon Lester
CUBS 3, DODGERS 2

4/12, 5:05p: Brandon McCarthy vs John Lackey
DODGERS 2, CUBS 0

4/13, 11:20a: Hyun-Jin Ryu vs Brett Anderson
CUBS 4, DODGERS 0. Hello, old friend.

Banner anger? Nicely played.

Dusty Baker said...

And we're in a rain delay. Surely god hates the Cubs. Rain delay in WS G7, rain delay for tonight's ceremony. Not exactly a banner day!

Dusty Baker said...

Oyster Pubes got straight tagged upside the head today.

MR.F said...

Yo Dusty. I heard about Oyster. Dunno how bad it was. Heard he was down for a bit?

Dusty Baker said...

He walked off on his own pube-y volition but he took one pretty hard to the helmet. I guess it was best case scenario if you're going to get hit. Wasn't intentional.

MR.F said...

Seems like he's doing okay so far. Never want to see anyone get hit in the head like that, no matter how pubey.

Steve Sax said...

Is this game on yet?

Orel said...

Twitter says yes, Gameday says no

Orel said...

My mind says stop, but my heart, and my hips, cry proceed

QuadSevens said...

RBI double for Seager. 2-1 top of the 6th.

QuadSevens said...

2-1 Cubs I should say.

Steve Sax said...

Regarding the earlier posts: yeah I felt bad for Oyster Pubes getting hit like that today. Ouch. Hope he's ok.

Steve Sax said...

Joe Gunkel, ladies and gentlemen!!!

Steve Sax said...

Bases loaded, none out in the top of the seventh.

Joc flies out and Toles GIDP. Unbelievable. I don't know whom I hate more right now.

Steve Sax said...

And, Puig strikes out on six pitches, all six of which were high in the zone

But it's 2-2 mid 8

Steve Sax said...

Joc Pederson, 5 LOB so far

QuadSevens said...

So Monday night was sucky. Let's turn it around tonight.

Just went with my gut.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I appreciate when the other team is generating the GIDPs as opposed the usual

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's some motherfucking HUSTLE, TOLES!

Orel said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Old man Utley wasn't half bad either!

Franklin Stubbs said...

@orel

Rhetorical?

MR.F said...

Wow nice

Franklin Stubbs said...

The coveted RBI strikeout.

Orel said...

Good job, Kenley

Orel said...

@Stubbs, 8:21: Mostly.

MR.F said...

We won, look at that.
