World Series Game 6 Thread: Oct. 31st vs. Astros, 5p



Rich Hill (12-8, 3.32) vs. Justin Verlander (15-8, 3.36)

Not much left to say, really. Game 5 damn near killed me, so I'm going to turn things over to our pal Erin...

Verlander, Schmerlander indeed.

Happy Hilloween, everybody. Hopefully, we'll see you tomorrow.

What Erin, Q7, and Orel said.

Erin Scot said...

I'm skipping trick-or-treating with my son for this. So I know these Dodgers are going to make it worth it.

spank said...

Epale,y'all!

karen said...

SPANKY!!

spank said...

KAREN!!

Erin Scot said...

Far too many Astros "fans" at Dodger Stadium tonight.

Orel said...

One up one down

Orel said...

HI EVERYBODY

Orel said...

Two up, still one down

QuadSevens said...

Hill’s curve looks good so far.

spank said...

sit down mofo

Orel said...

Ks Altuve! Two down

QuadSevens said...

One single and no damage for Hill.

karen said...

Yeah Erin, I agree. Way to much orange at the Ravine.

Orel said...

Gets out of it!

Erin Scot said...

So, swinging at the first pitch is the name of the game tonight? I sure hope that doesn't continue.

spank said...

first pitch swinging. fuck man.

Orel said...

CT3 going for the Game 1 first-pitch surprise there

Erin Scot said...

Seven fucking pitches. Amazing, guys. Really showing us you're in this.

spank said...

Dodgers bats are going to drive me to drink...not that i need the help.

Orel said...

So much for striking in the 1st

spank said...

more like stinking in the first,Orel.

Erin Scot said...

I don't love the notion that Darvish "couldn't have handled the Gurriel incident better." He handled it with grace, sure, but he also had the right to be super angry and lose his mind on a Gatorade cooler or whatever. It feels like Joe Buck is echoing the sentiment that MLB was, which is that Darvish helped MLB by shutting the hell up about it.

I don't know. Maybe I'm just still angry that guy got to play the next game, and that some Astros fans made the gesture in the stands themselves in the next game. And that racism exists in general.

rbnlaw said...

Buck is Steiner-ing me on every pitch. That, and I'm nervous.
Very nervous. But why would you think me mad?

rbnlaw said...

We should be able to "like" comments. I could give Erin about 10 for her 5:40.

Maybe 100.

Erin Scot said...

Thanks, rbnlaw.

I just don't like when white people think they get to determine the "best" way for a victim to respond to racism. It's not my place to make that call.

Erin Scot said...

Puig's going to carry us to Game Seven on his back.

QuadSevens said...

Working Verlander Schmerlander a little more in the second inning.

Erin Scot said...

I hate seeing a battle of an at-bat end with our batter just watching the third strike go by.

rbnlaw said...

Joc got hosed

spank said...

shut the fuck up BucknSmoltz!

Orel said...

Great comment, Erin. MLB was chickenshit to hid behind Darvish's class as a reason not to suspend Gurriel.

rbnlaw said...

I feel the surly level rising.

spank said...

fucking hell

rbnlaw said...

Goddammitalltohell

rbnlaw said...

Fucking bug-eyed sprite that he is

rbnlaw said...

Current Status: Fucking hate baseball

QuadSevens said...

I really hate that guy.

Erin Scot said...

Playing from behind. Again. So good.

QuadSevens said...

I also hate these Houston homer announcers.

rbnlaw said...

When your pitcher has the best at-bat vs. Verlander Shmerlander

spank said...

the Dodgers activated Mary Hart and Larry King today for pinch hitting duties if necessary. i dont think they can do no worse than these mutts.

Erin Scot said...

That's how you respond to them scoring a run, guys.

karen said...

One of the Dodger Franchises greatest legacies is breaking the color barrier. Jackie Robinson is a hero to me and I've always been proud that it was 'Our Team' that brought him to us and MLB. Once again it was a Dodger who took the high road and with absolute class while the other guy showed himself to be exactly who he is...a racist pig.

QuadSevens said...

Joe could not stop gushing about how fast Altuve is on a play where Seager makes a tough play to get him out. Why not mention how great a play that was at all?

rbnlaw said...

At one point in the broadcast, Smoltz said "the great Andruw Jones." He lost every shred of credibility at that point.

Erin Scot said...

We're scoring this inning. It's happening.

rbnlaw said...

All hail Rich Hill. Pulling a Baez to let the crowd boo that piece of shit lustily!

rbnlaw said...

And not a one saying Boo-urns

spank said...

that was feeble,Night Moves.

Erin Scot said...

UGH.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Beer check: Dales Pale Ale

rbnlaw said...

Red Dick is not a former Dodger. He threw peanuts in Upper Reserve for like 5 games.

Erin Scot said...

Morrow is getting loose. Dave Roberts has forgotten he has any other pitcher on his roster.

Orel said...

This is going to end poorly

rbnlaw said...

Losing power on laptop. Send help

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Big K there for Hill. Two more outs buddy, you can do it

Erin Scot said...

Don't worry. Two outs, and now we just have Springer coming up with two on.

Erin Scot said...

Oh, nevermind. IBB.

QuadSevens said...

Rancho ardiendo and Morrow coming in. It’s butt clenching time.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I got a bad feeling about this

rbnlaw said...

OK, back up.

We're screwed.

Erin Scot said...

I don't understand this move. Morrow? With the bases loaded? I know he was good until he wasn't, but god damn.

karen said...

Not feeling the trust in Doc on this.

spank said...

oh fuck no

QuadSevens said...

Holy shit we survived!

Erin Scot said...

NOW WE HAVE TO SCORE SOME RUNS.

Because Roberts is asking a lot out of a taxed bullpen.

rbnlaw said...

Butt status: unclenched

Orel said...

Wow, that didn't entirely blow up in our faces. Progress!

spank said...

i left for a minute and it was bases loaded when i got back with Morrow pitching. what the fuck.

spank said...

Roberts thinks the bullpen has robo-arms.

Erin Scot said...

It really must be nice to have an ace like Verlander.

QuadSevens said...

Or a manager that trusts his starters for longer than 58 pitches.

spank said...

should have just started Morrow all games

spank said...

bean the motherfucker!

Erin Scot said...

But, hey, we got Utley's bat back, guys. What a move.

Erin Scot said...

Wrong motherfucker to bean.

spank said...

y'all hitting the wrong player,dummies.

rbnlaw said...

Hitting McCann was not a good thing.

spank said...

unclench mode

rbnlaw said...

Watch what Chutley does this inning.

spank said...

i know we love Nancy Bea on the keys but this new kid kicks out the jams.

rbnlaw said...

I'll take it

spank said...

we gotta score here.

Erin Scot said...

Chase Utley is a robot.

Erin Scot said...

Um, and no, Smoltz, Chris Taylor should not be fucking bunting.

Orel said...

Utley HBP; angel gets wings

spank said...

fuck dude. what cu swinging at?

Erin Scot said...

THAT IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

spank said...

*faints*

rbnlaw said...

FUCK YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

karen said...

TIED BABY!!!

Orel said...

Hey there

spank said...

rally thong. rally thong

Erin Scot said...

So Chris Taylor ties the game. This has happened before. But this time we need to take the damn LEAD.

spank said...

steinered a run!

Erin Scot said...

I thought it was gone.

Orel said...

COREYYYYYY so close

rbnlaw said...

nSDFJHWEURIWTHASEFJANkjhaerf8jsadnlksdnmck;sadlkml;

Indeed

rbnlaw said...

And this I'm not a robot shit is annoying

Erin Scot said...

I was just about to say that, rbnlaw.

spank said...

the brilliance of my foot up Joe Buck's ass

Erin Scot said...

Bellinger looked like early World Series Bellinger in that at-bat.

Oh, my god, bullpen. I know your arms are falling off. But we need you so much right now.

Orel said...

I'm sure that man stranded on 3rd won't come back to haunt us later

rbnlaw said...

And we're getting to their pen. This could be a longer night than expected

rbnlaw said...

And here we go

Erin Scot said...

Well, ball four was a fucking strike. So that's cool.

spank said...

Enter The Dragon.My homie. Do it,Maeda.

karen said...

Looks like a Chase Utley law violation to me.

spank said...

i fucking hate this guy

spank said...

i wouldnt mind a beaning here

Erin Scot said...

We're going down because of almost double plays and bleeders through the infield. Yay.

spank said...

Derek Fisher. ain't that a bitch.

spank said...

fucking hell. whew

QuadSevens said...

Great play by Turner and Belli to preserve our lead!

Erin Scot said...

We need more runs. Please, please, please.

rbnlaw said...

This fucking game

Erin Scot said...

Maybe I jumped the gun by saying Puig would carry us.

spank said...

JOC!

QuadSevens said...

Joc motherfucking Pederson!!

Erin Scot said...

ADGJAIO;GHAEWIEBEWUAEAW

Orel said...

Orel said...

Joc is hype.

karen said...

I love watching Joc celebrate his homers.

Erin Scot said...

I see Ethier doing some great here.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

RUNS!!!

Erin Scot said...

I meant something. But he didn't do it. So it doesn't matter.

spank said...

Ethier being Ethier

spank said...

ump being ump. weak sauce,homie.

Orel said...

oh shit Kenley for two

spank said...

Orel said...

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS WE ARE THREE OUTS AWAY FROM GAME 7

QuadSevens said...

Still nervous. But I like what I saw from Kenley last inning.

spank said...

rbnlaw said...

Still not feeling well. Better. Not fully well

QuadSevens said...

Cody fighting up there.

QuadSevens said...

Another sombrero for Cody. Damn!

rbnlaw said...

Fucking golden sombrero

QuadSevens said...
