NLDS Game 3 Thread: 10/9 @ D'backs, 7p

Dave Roberts says the Dodgers won't jump in the Chase Field pool if they win, but there's always this....

Yu Darvish vs Zack Greinke.

Yeah, we may be getting ahead of ourselves in dreaming of pool antics, but what a huge freakin relief it is to be in this position, up 2-0 in the NLDS, after getting shellacked in our last six regular-season games against the Snakes.

How did we do it? Above-average starting pitching — your turn, Yu Darvish. Offensive production from the top of the lineup in Game 1 and the bottom half in Game 2 — how about some Wonder Twin power uniting tonight, guys? Oh, and more defense like in Game 2 (zero errors) rather than Game 1 (2 errors).

Listen: Old friend Zack isn't going to roll over for his old team, so let's hope we take a page from the Rockies' playbook and chase him early. Nine more victories!

Emotion out of Maeda on that K.

Steve Sax said...

Maeda gets a K on Pollock. One out.

Orel said...

Oh man Turner was awfully fast and loose there

Steve Sax said...

Turner up close and got the 5-3 groundout.

Orel said...

Wow we hit a second page of comments!

Johnny Blanchard said...

remember when JT was playing SS his first year... just our little utility guy who barely hung on the roster

Steve Sax said...

Holy smokes, what is going on here with the second page of comments?!!!

QuadSevens said...

Emo Juan Uribe remembers.

Orel said...

Iannetta it? Really netta it!

Johnny Blanchard said...

JBlanch be drinking so we be commentating commensurately

Orel said...

WOW Maeda!

QuadSevens said...

Maeda was strong! 2 strikeouts!

Steve Sax said...

Maeda with a K for the third out of the eighth! NICE

karen said...

Steve @ 10:13...I bow to your better judgement. He did great.

Orel said...

Kenta vs righties...great for us

Orel said...

CT3 first-pitch swinging...

Johnny Blanchard said...

these announcers are such dorks... anything is better than Buck

Johnny Blanchard said...

let's ring the bell right here JT

Steve Sax said...

Bradley doing pretty well for the Snakes in the ninth, two quick outs.

Orel said...

Turner flare!

Steve Sax said...

@karen 10:21p: Hey, it's never too late to be surprised. I was surprised at Game 2 when creaking-bones Granderson got a big double.

I mean, he's sucked since then, but that was a pleasant surprise.

QuadSevens said...

Belli was looking at video of this guy earlier.

Steve Sax said...

Turner with a blooper, so Belli is up and AZ bringing in... not Rodney?

Johnny Blanchard said...

this is hilarious.. I love the old shitty guy closing games for the Dbacks, it's like we've got Mitch Williams back again

Steve Sax said...

AZ goes to Chafin.

Speaking of which, these leather pants are really making my thighs abraded.

karen said...

@Steve...and sucked before then.

Orel said...

Damn Belli took a hack there

Orel said...

Dayum

Steve Sax said...

Oh no. Please tell me JT is not hurt.

Orel said...

QuadSevens said...

Wild play. Bloop into left almost caught. JT gunned out at the plate to end the inning.

Steve Sax said...

Turner thrown out at home. 3-1 LA, mid-9, but it seems like they've got the mo' now

Orel said...

I mean you gotta love the aggressiveness

Johnny Blanchard said...

what a damn throw!!! Well-played you studs!!!

Steve Sax said...

Lots of towel waving behind home plate.

karen said...

Please no Goldshit this inning...

Orel said...

Sad Diamondback fans feed my soul

Orel said...

ONE DOWN

QuadSevens said...

One down!

Steve Sax said...

TBS extolling Blanco's World Series experience with the Giants.

And he Ks.

Steve Sax said...

Kenley gets the first one.

Orel said...

Dammit it won't be a 1-2-3

Steve Sax said...

Peralta base hit, of course.

Johnny Blanchard said...

beat your meat! beat your meat!

Steve Sax said...

And here comes the "Beat LA" chant

Orel said...

Don't nibble Kenley

Orel said...

Don't touch Willie

Orel said...

TWO DOWN

QuadSevens said...

Two down now. Yikes.

Orel said...

Of course look who's up

Johnny Blanchard said...

Steve Sax said...

Oh man. I am freaking out here

Orel said...

Yeah maybe walk him

QuadSevens said...

Nervous time.

Orel said...

Barnes dialing long distance

Orel said...

U-IBB?

Orel said...

Foul gave me a fright

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Goldschmidt even roped that foul ball. 2-2 count

Orel said...

Another foul...another little death

Orel said...

Full count...

Johnny Blanchard said...

oh boy if that blue called that one!

Steve Sax said...

I thought Goldschmidt went on that one, but they called it ball 3

Orel said...

Johnny Blanchard said...

QuadSevens said...

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!!

Johnny Blanchard said...

we're not going to Phoenix

Steve Sax said...

Wow my feed was slow, so it was great to see orel's WIN comment!

Orel said...

Sweeeeet K. Really made Goldschmidt go fish

Steve Sax said...

DODGERS SWEEP!

Steve Sax said...

Again, Doc with all the right calls from the pen. Wow.

Orel said...

SORRY JOHNNY

Johnny Blanchard said...

that's a motherfucking win, dudes. Now go buy a stupid shirt you morons

Johnny Blanchard said...

Johnny Blanchard loves Miss Lauren, she's my baseball wife

karen said...

ARCHIE BRADLEY...WHOSE house did you say Chase was????

Orel said...

Everybody gets rest and we line up Kershaw for NLCS Game 1 after the Cubs and Nats go to an 18-inning Game 5.

Johnny Blanchard said...

go play quarterback Archie, I think you've got eligibility still

Steve Sax said...

Archie can go to Riverdale.

Steve Sax said...

BTW, can anyone confirm if Turner was hurt at that throwout at the plate? He went in to home with his arm funny.

Johnny Blanchard said...

haven't heard a thing about JT

karen said...

Me either. I'm watching our telecast on SNLA and nothings been said about JT.

Orel said...

He looks OK here, Sax:

karen said...

JT just interviewed by Alanna in the clubhouse and he seemed fine. No talk at all of any injury.

QuadSevens said...

Apparently there were mounted police on the field guarding the pool until about 12:11am after the game.
