World Series Game 4 Thread: Oct 28th @ Astros, 5p


You said it, Krusty.

Alex Wood (16-3, 2.72) vs. Charlie Morton (14-7, 3.62)

WELP.

What was expected to be an exciting, competitive World Series between two 100+ win teams has taken an ugly turn. Ugly starting pitching, ugly swings, ugly defense, and, oh yeah, ugly fucking racism.

Adversity sucks. The Dodgers really haven't had to face it all postseason. Yet, through all this ugliness, a ray of positivity suddenly shines from the unlikeliest of sources...our own SoSG Sax:
Hey, turn that frown upside down. All three games have been decided by two or fewer runs. It's anyone's game. And though we are down 2-1, that's with one starter flaming out, Bellinger not hitting squat, our own bullpen melting down once (they were fine last night), and the rest of our offense suddenly not clutch. We will be fine. Let's just win Game 4.

I'll have what he's smoking.

But seriously, he's not wrong. The Dodgers are still very much in this, despite how bleak things looked last night. A little good Wood will go a long way. (That goes for the bats too.) Play smart. Play loose. Leave the panicking and butt clenching to us.

LET'S GO, DODGERS!

Erin Scot said...

This game feels a whole lot like last night, in terms of our hitting.

Kinda frustrating game so far. Feels like last night

Orel said...

Beer check: Stella

QuadSevens said...

Fat Tire here. Bats need to wake up!

Orel said...

No more walks, Wood!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Nice audibles from McCann there!

Erin Scot said...

Gotta keep the pitch count down. We need length from Wood. Har har.

QuadSevens said...

Wood has been good through three.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Seager looks like a junkie in that pic they just flashed going into commercial break

Orel said...

Yeah, he's jonesing for a hit

QuadSevens said...

Wood still good through four now.

Erin Scot said...

We could use a few more 10-pitch innings from Wood.

Also, RUNS.

Erin Scot said...

At this point, I could strike out Berlinger. Down and in. That's all it takes.

Erin Scot said...

Berlinger is apparently how "Bellinger" autocorrects on my phone.

Orel said...

Hey so I won't jinx anything BUT

QuadSevens said...

Barnes HBP to start the rally?

QuadSevens said...

Guess not.

Franklin Stubbs said...

We’re above the usually allowed number of Sons in one place.

Dusty, if we get droned, make sure to remind everyone that Gurriel is a racist asshole. For all of us.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Woods is en fuego!

QuadSevens said...

That's a shitty way to lose a no hitter.

Orel said...

Well that's fucked up.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Quick hook on Wood

Steve Sax said...

Ok don’t worry. We are good.

Keep showing the George Springer highlight, Fox. We got this.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

GET SUM RUNS!!!!

Erin Scot said...

Morton is going to throw a complete game shutout. UNLESS WE FUCKING SCORE SOME RUNS.

Erin Scot said...

Okay. Now let's hold them and get some more in the eighth.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Nice hitting by Bellinger and Forsythe! Hope the rest of the team was taking notes

Orel said...

NOOOOOO JOC

Orel said...

Erin Scot said...

Come on, guys. Please.

Steve Sax said...

JT with a walk

QuadSevens said...

Cody coming through!

Erin Scot said...

Thank you, Cody.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

FUCK YES!!!

Orel said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

JOC POP!!!!

QuadSevens said...

Hell yeah! It's Kenley time.

QuadSevens said...

Erin Scot said...

My wife was trying to take a panoramic picture of my son on my lap, right at the moment that Joc hit the bomb.
