World Series Game 5 Thread: Oct. 29th @ Astros, 5pm


HAPPY KERSHAW DAY!

Clayton Kershaw (18-4, 2.31) vs. Dallas Keuchel (14-5, 2.90)

How about that Game 4, huh? Anyone else still buzzing? At least we get a day off today to recuperate.

Wait...what's that?

We have to do it all again tonight? And it's Kershaw/Keuchel Part II, with a chance to come back to L.A. up 3-2? Well, holy shit. We're gonna need more booze.

LET'S GO DODGERS!

Orel said...

My body is not ready. Worried about JT's knee. Belly lower in order? Big faith in Kiké. Puig lower intrigues. Wow, Culby gets the start? I'M A LITTLE NERVOUS

Hideo Nomo said...

There, there, Orel. The greatest World Series hitter of all time, Logan Forsythe, is in the lineup!

Orel said...

I'm still eating those words. IN LOGIE BEAR WE TRUST

QuadSevens said...

I'm hoping we get NLCS game 5 Kiké today in the cleanup spot.

Johnny Blanchard said...

leeeeeet's do this.... well-rested Kersh is some tasty Kersh

Orel said...

More unexpected heroes!

Orel said...

Toniiiiiight

Johnny Blanchard said...

sometimes I think 538 works too fast... our bullpen was not overtaxed after game 3 IMO... https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/david-robertss-overworked-bullpen-is-a-bad-omen-for-the-dodgers/

Orel said...

Yeah, I think I'll take our bullpen over the Astros'

Johnny Blanchard said...

reminds me of Joe Torre not trusting anyone besides Rivera and one other guy every year... except Hinch doesn't seem to trust anyone in his bullpen

Johnny Blanchard said...

shut up Buck

Johnny Blanchard said...

the groper!!!!

Johnny Blanchard said...

throwin' out the first pitch... man I wish there was a lady nearby

Erin Scot said...

Oh, hey, they got a sexual predator and a war criminal to throw out a pitch for Game 5. That's cool.

Orel said...

Dubya still got juice in his arm

Johnny Blanchard said...

I mean, I certainly am glad there is not a lady nearby the groper in chief

Johnny Blanchard said...

The Bushes are baseball dudes

Orel said...

Crowd ate it up

Erin Scot said...

Bush 41, Bush 43, Halliburton sponsorship in left field, at least one racist player in the dugout. I'm all in on my hatred of the Astros.

Johnny Blanchard said...

Dave Roberts sells poisoned milk to schoolchildren

Orel said...

HERE WE GO

Orel said...

That first pitch looked awfully hittable

Orel said...

CT3 leadoff single!

Johnny Blanchard said...

no way that first pitch was gonna be high like the last one

Orel said...

Corey first-pitch swinging, as always

Johnny Blanchard said...

his HR sure was a great moment even if it was short-lived

Orel said...

Full count to Corey. Make him throw pitches!

Johnny Blanchard said...

Keuchel's nickname is Nibbler

Johnny Blanchard said...

except that one lol

Orel said...

Corey looking for anything but something middle-middle

Erin Scot said...

Or just stand there and take a called strike three over the plate.

Orel said...

Stratagery!

Orel said...

Sensing a pattern here. 3-1 to JT

Orel said...

JT walk!

Johnny Blanchard said...

I call those kinds of strike threes "JD Drews"

Orel said...

Two on, one out. Hmmm

QuadSevens said...

Dodger hitters are showing more patience today.

Johnny Blanchard said...

JT is the best hitter in baseball... discuss

Orel said...

Begone with that name, Johnny!

Orel said...

3-0 to Kiké!

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

QuadSevens said...

Rancho ardiendo!

Johnny Blanchard said...

I loved JD Drew... sorry... RiP

QuadSevens said...

Dammit!

Orel said...

And Corey can't hit into a DP!

Orel said...

Gotcha, Quad!

Orel said...

Belli doing that hook swing again

QuadSevens said...

And staring at one down the middle.

Orel said...

Cody back to being overmatched

QuadSevens said...

Let's go Logie Bear!

Johnny Blanchard said...

here's our hero... the Chuck Norris loookalike

Orel said...

LOGIE BEAR I NEVER STOPPED BELIEVING IN YOU

QuadSevens said...

IN LOGIE WE TRUST!!

Orel said...

Is that the first error the Astros have made, ever?

Hideo Nomo said...

MY MAN!

QuadSevens said...

That called second strike was way inside!

Erin Scot said...

Strike two to Puig there was way the hell inside. Not cool.

Orel said...

WHERE WAS THAT

Orel said...

We have intrigue

Johnny Blanchard said...

very racist throw to second

Erin Scot said...

They can't overturn this. He looks safe. Nowhere near enough evidence to say otherwise.

Johnny Blanchard said...

some would say merely insensitive throw

Johnny Blanchard said...

Logie shoulda stayed in the rundown--guarantee he's ticked he didn't

Orel said...

SAFE!

Orel said...

Full count to Puig. The discipline continues

Erin Scot said...

That was a good inning. Time for Kershaw to come out and shut them down immediately.

Orel said...

Trying to figure out a Laz-Iossogna pun. Can't quite put it together

Johnny Blanchard said...

no longer applies to Puig... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdbORXEmbnk

Orel said...

@KevinKennedyMLB 2m

That was a designed play...announcers said he left early...that's what you're supposed to do to steal a run 1st and 3rd 2 out.

Orel said...

Two pitches, one out

Orel said...

8 pitches, 2 out

Orel said...

OH THAT CURVE

Johnny Blanchard said...

my mom's brother, Charlie

Orel said...

Ks Altuve for the third out!

Johnny Blanchard said...

24 outs to near bliss

QuadSevens said...

Kersh is all business.

Erin Scot said...

Before the bottom half, I said, "Kershaw needs to shut them down on 12 pitches."

Orel said...

Keuchel starts Barnes off 2-0

Orel said...

Keep up the prognostications, Erin!

Orel said...

Barnes flies out to right

Orel said...

Culby bounces out on the second pitch. Get with the program Charlie

Orel said...

Thank you Quad for the Taylor "who farted" meme

Orel said...

OK we cleared the bottom of the order and made him throw 13 pitches

Erin Scot said...

I'll give Kershaw 14 pitches this inning.

Orel said...

Two more pitches, one more out

Johnny Blanchard said...

too complicated... just don't walk people

Orel said...

Eight pitches, two out

Johnny Blanchard said...

remember when Hanley Ramirez was our effing shortstop? what a joke

Orel said...

11 pitches!

Erin Scot said...

Nevermind. I meant 12 again, obviously.

Orel said...

Whoops I guess 12

Orel said...

(mentally calculates 9x12)

QuadSevens said...

@Orel 5:56. I said that? I like it, but not sure I can take credit.

Erin Scot said...

Fox's pitch count on the screen doesn't change until the out happens. Which is dumb, since the pitch is thrown regardless of whether it's a hit or out.

Orel said...

Corey first-pitch swinging OMG!

Orel said...

I thought you came up with it, Quad!

Orel said...

Keuchel at 50 pitches with no out in the 3rd

Johnny Blanchard said...

man that was a sweet pitch to hit

Erin Scot said...

It seems we're giving up on the patience this inning.

Orel said...

Whatever happened to our patient approach? JT pops out on his first pitch?

Orel said...

Now he's at 52 pitches with 2 out

Johnny Blanchard said...

guys... for the last time... you gotta be aggressive also... and what about game theory

Orel said...

Kiké bringing patience back. 3-1 count

Orel said...

Ugh nubs it back to the pitcher

Johnny Blanchard said...

now that sucked, don't swing 3-1 unless you get the pitch you want

Orel said...

Kersh 3-1 to Gattis

Orel said...

No-hitter over

Orel said...

MGon GIDP!

QuadSevens said...

5-4-3! Love it!

Orel said...

Still at minimum battage for Kersh! 38 pitches

Erin Scot said...

Are you fucking kidding me with that strike three pitch?

QuadSevens said...

I hope the home plate ump can hear me yelling at him!

Orel said...

LOGAN BEAR DOUBLE

Orel said...

This zone is bullshit

Erin Scot said...

Puig strikes out because he had to swing at it. Such bullshit.

Orel said...

GREAT AB AB! 4-0 Dodgers!

QuadSevens said...

4-0 lead for Kershaw! I love it!

Steve Sax said...

way to go Barnes

Steve Sax said...

Culbie chases Keuchel!!!

QuadSevens said...

Culberson beats the throw by Altuve. Joe Buck is sad.

Orel said...

This ump's zone if fucking with our RH swings. Hope Kershaw gets that call too

Orel said...

Guess not

Orel said...

Kersh nibbling all of a sudden

Orel said...

'Stros with two on, one out in the 4th

Erin Scot said...

This is nerve-racking.

Orel said...

4-1

Erin Scot said...

Unreal.

Orel said...

The worst possible thing just happened

Orel said...

Leaving bases loaded last inning = not good

Erin Scot said...

I honestly cannot believe that racist fuck just did that.

Orel said...

LET'S FUCKING DO THIS, PLEASE

Orel said...

Evil never dies, Erin.

Orel said...

Who is Collin McHugh?

Orel said...

3-1 to Seager...

Orel said...

Works the walk

Orel said...

2-0 to JT. Like this McQ guy

Orel said...

3-1 count...

Johnny Blanchard said...

it's a McDonalds BBQ sandwich

Orel said...

Two walks. Two on

Orel said...

Joe McEwing?

Johnny Blanchard said...

no that's a McDonald's BBQ wing special with coffee

Orel said...

Ball one to Kiké

Hideo Nomo said...

I’m mad, yo.

Orel said...

Kiké Ks

Erin Scot said...

THIS UMP.

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCK THIS UMP.

Orel said...

Ball one to Belli...

Orel said...

2-1 count...

Johnny Blanchard said...

YES!

Orel said...

CODY FUCKING BELLINGER MAKING THINGS RIGHT

Steve Sax said...

Wow Cody. Wow

QuadSevens said...

Bellibomb for the lead!! Woohoo!!

Erin Scot said...

I swear to you, this postseason is shaving YEARS off my life.

QuadSevens said...

The death stare from Puig took some years off the ump's life.

Johnny Blanchard said...

well shit

Orel said...

GET IT TOGETHER CLAYTON

Orel said...

That's a loud out but an out nonetheless

Orel said...

McCann kills one foul. We're not getting out of this inning unscathed

Johnny Blanchard said...

battle battle battle

Steve Sax said...

McCann Ks. Two out

Orel said...

Kershaw spikes a 2-1 pitch to Springer. Ugly

Steve Sax said...

Geez, it’s 7:36p and we aren’t even through five innings

Steve Sax said...

Maeda warming in the pen.

Orel said...

Walks Springer. Kershaw is gassed

Steve Sax said...

Oh no. Walk.

Steve Sax said...

Acc to Charley, every player who has walked this game has scored

Orel said...

Acc to Charley, THAT FLY BALL WAS WELL-HIT

Orel said...

Uncle Charlie for strike 2

Orel said...

Only four swings and misses for Kershaw???

Orel said...

Just walk him and get Kershaw out. Never thought I'd say that

Johnny Blanchard said...

Fernando's fifth time through the lineup: Yankees 0-4 https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/LAN/LAN198110230.shtml

Orel said...

Kenta please

Johnny Blanchard said...

are we ready for some big outs from BMac????

Orel said...

This sure doesn't feel like a three-run lead

Johnny Blanchard said...

this feels like Yankees-Red Sox

QuadSevens said...

Fuck.

Orel said...

Just fuck.

Steve Sax said...

I can’t take this.

7-all

QuadSevens said...

Maeda's slider isn't there today.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, Kenta.

Orel said...

Great time for an error, guys

Steve Sax said...

Correa reaches on an error, and advances to second. Now it’s Gurriel.

Orel said...

Finally this fucking inning from hell is over

Erin Scot said...

My wife is blaming me because I said, "I really don't want to trade three-run home runs every night," before that half-inning.

Erin Scot said...

*every inning

Orel said...

Every night works too!

Orel said...

Barnes Ks on 4 pitches

Orel said...

All of a sudden McQ is unhittable

QuadSevens said...

Joc walks. Let's cash this in!

Orel said...

CT3 pops out

Orel said...

How about some two-out magic, Corey

QuadSevens said...

Full count to Seager. Just hit it to the gap Corey!

QuadSevens said...

Is it wrong to hope someone foul tips a ball off the ump's mask?

Orel said...

And then the ball ricochets off Gurriel's nutsack

Orel said...

Kenta Ks Reddick to start the 6th

Orel said...

Unlike yesterday, our players are angry and off their game. Makes the game much less enjoyable to watch

Orel said...

Watson. Buck just Steinered that foul ball

Orel said...

Watson gets us out. Nice work

QuadSevens said...

Turner fouling off a bunch.
