World Series Game 7 Thread: Nov. 1st vs. Astros, 5p


Yu Darvish (2-1, 4.15) vs. Lance McCullers, Jr. (1-0, 2.95)*

GAME.

FUCKING.

SEVEN.


(cries)

There are almost no words this humble Son can conjure to capture the magnitude of this moment. (Though this Son did a pretty damn good job.) A remarkable run for the Dodgers that began with absolute madness can end with absolute jubilation tonight. The opposite is possible, sure, but now isn't the time to think about that. Now is the time to sit back, grab a drink or seven, take a deep breath, and let this beautiful, hilarious, confounding, awe-inspiring, once-in-a-lifetime team take us on one more ride.

Now and always...LET'S GO DODGERS!

*Weirdly, the Dodgers website waited until the final game of the postseason to publish postseason stats instead of regular season stats. But that's where I've gotten the numbers from for every GT, so I'm not changing anything now.

I.

AM.

FREAKING.

OUT.

(But in a good way.)

Franklin Stubbs said...

Alea iacta est, you bastards! Bring it on home!

Orel said...

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

Steve Sax said...

Late breaking news: AC has stepped up huge. He will be at Game 7 along with Mrs. AC.

Steve Sax said...

Let's go, Dodgers!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Guess that first check from the Red Sox cleared!

Orel said...

Way to go, AC!

QuadSevens said...

I think my head is going to explode from all the articles I've read today about the Dodgers. I love it.

Orel said...

Stress-eating.

Steve Sax said...

I think my stomach lining is about to explode from all the anxiety about the Dodgers. I am dying.

Franklin Stubbs said...

We’ll see how my G7 zen holds up after first pitch.

Erin Scot said...

I can't read anything about this game. Other than on this blog. I feel like everything else is a jinx.

Orel said...

I don't want to spoil anything, Erin, but apparently there's some sort of baseball game being played today.

Orel said...

Deserve doesn't matter.

Paul said...

*cries* *screams* *faints*

Steve Sax said...

Just got it the car. KROQ just played Thunder by Imagine Dragons (Joc’s walkup song), and now Beastie Boys.

This is an omen

Paul said...

It’s November, the last game of the year for baseball and the Dodgers are playing...surreal.

Paul said...

I’m just debating if I should watch the game with sound. I want to hear that crowd but don’t want to hear J. Buckeroo

Orel said...

Doesn't MLB.tv offer a crowd-only feed?

Paul said...

Do they?! I’ll look.

Orel said...

WHO'S HYPED

Paul said...

I feel sick

spank said...

i'm going to make sweet sweet love to Gnomes after the Dodgers win tonight.

spank said...

@ primo

Fox Deportes broadcast. call your cable provider.

Erin Scot said...

So annoying that I have to squint to tell that it's Newcombe and Koufax over the announcers' shoulders while they blather. Show us what matters!

karen said...

I'm feeling very nervous. I wish Buck would quit saying how much fun we've had. No fun going on here.

spank said...

Newcombe and Koufax throwing out the first pitch.





(cries)

spank said...

shit

Orel said...

Always with the rough start

spank said...

fuck

Erin Scot said...

Un-fucking-real.

karen said...

shitshitshit

spank said...

that was on Bellinger. horrible play

Orel said...

Two batters, down by a run

spank said...

fuck

Erin Scot said...

So much for Darvish coming out strong and shutting them down.

Orel said...

Darvish is a notoriously slow starter

QuadSevens said...

We knew we would have to score. Let’s settle in for a wild ride boys and girls.

Erin Scot said...

We need our offense to be raring to go out of the gate. We're not losing because of a barely-fair double and a couple of grounders.

spank said...

put some pine tar on the motherfucking ball. fuck it

Orel said...

Gurriel is singlehandedly going to knock out Darvish

Erin Scot said...

Let's go, let's go, let's go.

spank said...

score some runs goddamnit

Orel said...

RUNS PLEASE

Orel said...

CT3 leadoff double!

spank said...

rally thong rally thong

Franklin Stubbs said...

Get one back here and I’m ok

QuadSevens said...

CT3 leadoff double and some Beastie Boys in the stadium!

Orel said...

Seager didn't swing at the first pitch!

Erin Scot said...

Corey cannot lay off that pitch down and in. I don't understand.

Orel said...

Full count to Seager. Make him throw pitches

Erin Scot said...

Twice in that at-bat. Why has there been no adjustment for that?

spank said...

same fucking pitch like last night. fucking Night Moves.

QuadSevens said...

We’ll see if Bellinger has made an adjustment on that pitch.

Orel said...

Guess his curve is working. Fooled Seager & JT so far

Orel said...

JT HBP WTF OMG

Orel said...

Cody vs the curve...yikes

Paul said...

Lay off the bullshit Cody.

spank said...

come on Belli

spank said...

organist playing some Marilyn Manson.

spank said...

goddamnit

QuadSevens said...

That’s a no.

Paul said...

No surprise there.

Orel said...

Wow. Cody was pathetic there

Erin Scot said...

Truly embarrassing that all they have to do is throw that pitch to Seager and Berlinger all night. Surely some professional baseball player could help them recognize it?

Erin Scot said...

BELLINGER. NOT BERLINGER.

Paul said...

He’s a little wild. Wild pitch anyone?

Orel said...

2x HBP this inning. MAKE EM PAY

Orel said...

It's all up to Joc

Orel said...

I think our lefty weakness has been exposed

Orel said...

It's Time for Dodger Baseball Which Means Leaving the Bases Loaded!

Erin Scot said...

That will not be our last chance. It will not. We can do this.

Paul said...

Could be worse but that was pretty bad.

Paul said...

1-2-3 inning from Darvish please.

Paul said...

My God this isn’t good.

Orel said...

Darvish walks the leadoff batter in the 2nd. He's not here for long

spank said...

fuck

Erin Scot said...

Pull him. Now.

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw moving around in the bullpen.

Orel said...

Dodgers can't seem to put together two straight good games

QuadSevens said...

Reddick still sucks.

spank said...

bring in Wood

Orel said...

Morrow warming up

spank said...

what

Orel said...

McCullers looks like he can hack. Wouldn't be surprised if he had an RBI here

Erin Scot said...

I'm going to cry.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oof. If this is only 1 run I almost feel relieved, but he’s not cutting it.

spank said...

bean this fucker then take Darvish out.

Steve Sax said...

Gotta pull Yu. Would have been a great storyline, but it’s not happening.

Steve Sax said...

Don’t understand why Logan didn’t come home with that throw

QuadSevens said...

I hate that guy.

spank said...

FUCK

Franklin Stubbs said...

There’s your MVP I’m afraid.

Orel said...

Great season, guys

Erin Scot said...

Fuck this. How do the fans have more heart than our players?

Erin Scot said...

Fucking red state racist assholes are going to win a World Series on our field? Fucking JOSH REDDICK? This cannot happen.

Paul said...

KO’d

Orel said...

Remember how excited we were when we acquired Darvish? That he would push us over the hump?

spank said...

Bean everybody!

Erin Scot said...

So excited to get him. And now he's cost us the World Series.

Paul said...

Wish he would have imploded in game 3 of the NLDS like I thought.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It’s on Yu, but it’s not like he’s a bum. It’s just not there for him.

Erin Scot said...

I want to see some fucking fight. I'm trying so hard to have it in me, but I can't pick up a bat. No more fucking stranded runners. Make it a game.

Franklin Stubbs said...

What we need is to answer back post-haste. Not everything, but enough to feel like we’re in it.

spank said...

a run or two will do for now. still just the second inning

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fuck that noise right there.

spank said...

can't catch a fucking break

Erin Scot said...

Yep. That's how it's going to go.

Franklin Stubbs said...

The DP, I mean.

Paul said...

Not our night.

Orel said...

I have a very, very bad feeling about this

spank said...

i'm doing everything i can over here to right this ship aside from sacrificing a virgin which i would do if there were any left in this cruel world.

QuadSevens said...

Third inning in a row with our leadoff guy on. Let’s get a run dammit!

spank said...

Kershaw needs to plunk the first batter next inning

QuadSevens said...

Turner hit in the back on th first pitch. Two on for Bellinger now.

Paul said...

Bellinger stay disciplined.

spank said...

Dave Kingman up to bat.

spank said...

dude cannot lay off that fucking curve

Orel said...

We have so many goats

Erin Scot said...

That fucking pitch. I'm just never going to understand this.

Hideo Nomo said...

I want to be positive. I really do. I reeeeeaaaaallllly do.

Erin Scot said...

I'm with you, Nomo.

Orel said...

We are getting demolished.

Hideo Nomo said...

I think I’d be less upset if Reddick (wrestling heel), Hinch (bar brawler), Gurriel (dumbass racist), and Springer (dong machine) hadn’t found ways to make me hate a team I otherwise kinda admired.

Orel said...

WAS THAT A NEW LAST JEDI TRAILER

Paul said...

Concieding the inning? Kersh can hit.

karen said...

Is it the bitter bitch in me or does Joe Buck sound a little to elated when something bad happens to our boys?

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

MIGHTY KERSHAW AT THE BAT

Orel said...

And here we are back at square one, shredding Kershaw's arm to bits

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw down swinging and now gets to face Springer.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

So I just got home from work, and found out that my DVR didn't tape the first four innings. I'd be mad. but am feeling that DirecTV tried to protect me from pain and sadness.

Though I'll still call DirecTV and unleash hell

Paul said...

I’m not nervous anymore. Dead inside.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

That video footage of George Springer's freaking me out.
It's like he's looking into my soul

spank said...

i'd rather be nervous but the multiple beers i'm consuming would have alleviated that feeling anyways.

spank said...

they should have poisoned Springers food like the Queens did to Kobe years ago.

Paul said...

Big lead and Kershaw is dealing....*cries*

spank said...

Ringo's singing in my headphones. we can't lose now.





(cries)

Erin Scot said...

I'm trying not to be that guy, but, man, why didn't Kershaw just start?

Steve Sax said...

I’m with you Erin

But we are going to win this.

Franklin Stubbs said...

We can TOTALLY win this, but we have to buckle down.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Any room for another sad sack?

Orel said...

What is it about these #3-4 starters that we just can't handle?

spank said...

Kershaw is only pitching good because this ain't his fail.

spank said...

i would have gone with Wood.

Cliff Beefpile said...

You know, I gotta say, the way this Series has gone, I would rather be down than in the lead at this point...not by FIVE...but, crazy enough, I still have faith. It's a totally foreign feeling, but this team has been nuts all season.

Orel said...

(makes room for Cliffy)

Orel said...

Know what you mean Cliffy but we are not seeing ANYTHING at the plate

Paul said...

A break!

Cliff Beefpile said...

BABIP luck courtesy of Bregman's weird t-rex arms.

spank said...

sort of a break there. take advantage motherfuckers. dont strikeout fool!

Paul said...

Wonder where Lirano is going to try and throw to Belli.

Paul said...

Oh man throw him another fastball please

Orel said...

1st & 3rd, two out

Paul said...

Come on! One fucking run please!

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

KAren - if you hate Joe Buck and aren't too easily offended, you might enjoy Artie Lange destroying him on Buck's very short lived HBO show.

spank said...

fuck man

Orel said...

We are hitting them where they're at

Hideo Nomo said...

I’m sad.

spank said...

almost time to change the channel

Neeebs said...

Is the season over, or do we have a chance?

Orel said...

CAN WE GET SOMETHING STARTED FOR CHRIST'S STAKE

spank said...

goddamnit Kershaw. why come you couldn't pitch like this the other night fucking idiot.

Steve Sax said...

Here we go. Sixth inning. This is it.

spank said...

ya pa que Guey

Orel said...

Joc flare single to start the 6th

Orel said...

Logie Bear walks

spank said...

seen this situation before several times today. woopeedeedo

spank said...

just hit a single. that's all i ask

spank said...

weak sauce

QuadSevens said...

0 for 10 RISP. AWESOME!

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

I've changed Dodger shirts and bought several Dodgers donuts for the family. If that doesn't change our fortunes nothing will

Orel said...

Nope. No single for you.

spank said...

hit a hpmerun here and i'll love you forever Dre

Cliff Beefpile said...

I haven't seen anything as constipated as the Dodgers offense since I ate that whole bag of King's Hawaiiian rolls.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Don't Call It A Comeback
We've Been Here For Years

Cliff Beefpile said...

There's one.

Orel said...

Whaddaya say Spank

spank said...

i still hate you Dre but good job mutt

Orel said...

We're on our way to losing by one!

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

By Beefpile's Hawaiian Rolls!

Steve Sax said...

Seal broken...

spank said...

Taylor tried to tie it up with that swing and there's only two men on base.

spank said...

damn yo

Orel said...

Corey just got sawed off there

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Six Year Old on Seagar: "He's Skinny"

Paul said...

Bad time for what I believe was the first broken bat of the series.

QuadSevens said...

Kenley in for the 7th. Four scoreless for Kersh.

Orel said...

Darvish was an anchor in the World Series. Who woulda guessed

Paul said...

5 runs in the bottom of the 7th! Whose coming with me?

QuadSevens said...

I’m in Paul. Let’s do this!

spank said...

i'm down Paul. fuck all. it ain't over yet! i'll streak all up in this motherfucker if we do

spank said...

feeble

Paul said...

Turner has not shown up since game 1. Not even hitting the ball hard now.

spank said...

Dodgers making all the Astros pitchers look like Cy Young winners.

Orel said...

Ouch Bellinger. He's Billy Ashley now

QuadSevens said...

The Dodger bats weren’t with us Paul.

Paul said...

Well the 7inning comeback has been delayed....

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

OYe... our plank's getting short.
We need some Luke / Sarlacc Pit action

spank said...

couldnt even get the ball out of the infield. hello motherfuckers that could be your last at bat of the season nimrods. spineless
