Series Thread (Games 21-23), April 23-25 vs Marlins




Monday 4/23: Garcia (1-0, 0.86) vs Buehler (0-0, 0.00) LAD 2, FLA 1

Tuesday 4/24: Peters (2-2, 6.98) vs Maeda (2-1, 3.77) FLA 3, LAD 2

Wednesday 4/25: Richards (0-2, 6.16)) vs Kershaw (1-3, 2.45) FLA 8, LAD 6 Boooooo-urns!


Welcome back to the show Walker Buehler!  His major league STARTING debut is tonight and the hype train is real.  Remember when Cody come up in April?  That turned out pretty good.  However the word on the street is that Buehler pitches two games then goes back down.  Nonetheless, here a glimpse of the future.

Its also welcome back Don Mattingly and company (including Miguel "let me save Kershaw's no hitter" Rojas).  He's dealt a raw deck by Jeter and the management - remember the lame duck manager status in LA?  De ja vu.  Welp, here's to getting well against a struggling team.  GO BLUE!

Let’s start ALL THE CATCHERS!!!!

karen said...

Here we go!

Orel said...

Bring back Russell Martin!

Orel said...

How's BuehlerWalkerBuehler doing

Orel said...

Bases loaded, two out, 21 pitches in the 1st. So, not great.

Orel said...

Wiggles off the hook!

karen said...

I hope Matty hasn't screwed with his mojo by messing with his dome.

No superstition here.

Orel said...

KKKK

karen said...

I'm digging Austin's socks.

karen said...

Wow! Kike!!

karen said...

Wow! Kike!! Again...1-0 Blue B4.

Orel said...

Kiké is all fired up against the team that traded him

karen said...

Ferris goes out winning 1-0.

Cliff Beefpile said...

So, if The Dodgers are still leading by fewer than 4 in the 9th, and someone comes in to pitch the top of the 9th...are they trying to save Ferris?

karen said...

Cliffy...I think so. He pitched out his 5 innings going out 1-0. So, yeah if the closer comes in and the lead is less than 4, it's for a save.

Or are you messing with me making me think so hard?

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Karen, both works for me! :D ;)

Johnny Blanchard said...

I suppose I'd rather do a threesome with the "young" Morongo couple but get a few stiffies in me and the "old" Morongo couple is a slam dunk

Johnny Blanchard said...

so no one got the "Save Ferris" reference out of all 4 of us. For shame.

karen said...

Crap!!! Fish come back to tie it in the 8th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, shit.

Johnny Blanchard said...

CTE baby!

Cliff Beefpile said...

CT3 getting off the schneid

Johnny Blanchard said...

ooh such a nice bunt

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Bunty goodness!

karen said...

Blue at the corners, no outs in 8.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

My sons falling asleep next to me. Would like to present him in the morning with good news.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fack. I still have nightmares of Corey swinging and missing on that same breaking ball.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Buzzkill

Cliff Beefpile said...

in the World Series i meant to say...but my brain quit half way through the sentence. I blame my old age.

Johnny Blanchard said...

sometimes... they just make a good pitch

Cliff Beefpile said...

Mattingly is really gonna be pissed if he loses because of a well-placed bunt by the Dodgers

Johnny Blanchard said...

not to minimize your obvious PTSD CB

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Yay sacrificial out!

Johnny Blanchard said...

we demanded sacrifice

Cliff Beefpile said...

Oh no doubt it was always a well-executed pitch, it looks damn near impossible to hit...but that doesn't make the hurting stop. Just one...one miracle blasted into the seats a la Fat Matt Adams and that goddamn Kershaw curveball, is that so much to ask!??!?!

*walks back into the padded room*

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Orel H should never have to pay for a meal in LA and nor do water heater ads

Cliff Beefpile said...

Seager with the leather! The elbow looks solid again.

Johnny Blanchard said...

maybe if you didn't have a gigantic Mr. T gold chain on, you woulda beat that out, Dietrich

Cliff Beefpile said...

WIN!

karen said...

Win!!!!

Johnny Blanchard said...

that is a weiner

Orel said...

WIN

QuadSevens said...

Maeda P

karen said...

Matty My Man!!! Lead off double to start 2nd.

Orel said...

Kemp double! Barnes double! 1-0 Dodgers!

Orel said...

Realmuto ties it up

karen said...

Is the Alumni game PC for Old Timers Game?

Orel said...

Old Farts Game

karen said...

Fish tie it up in 8th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Baez, I'm legitimately rooting for you but....COME ON!

karen said...

We're going to lose this aren't we? Fish are a really bad team and they're going to freakin' beat us.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Shuck Off
All right boys. A loss to the marlins would be the emotional equivalent of Losing ten in a row

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

7.00 ERA closer?!?

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

EIGHT PITCHES TO CLOSE IT OUT?!?!?!
Dodgers go gently into thy good night

Orel said...

Wow we suck again

Johnny Blanchard said...

The Fish have a bunch of damned Cy Youngers. How did our scouts miss this?

Steve Sax said...

Pedro Baez must be stopped

karen said...

Happy Kershaw Day!

Orel said...

GAME 3
Taylor CF
Seager SS
Grandal C
Bellinger 1B
Kemp RF
Pederson LF
Utley 2B
Hernández 3B
Kershaw P

Orel said...

Kershaw strugging in the 2nd. Against the Marlins

karen said...

Kershaw gets out of 2nd. 0-0.

Orel said...

38 pitches through 2!

karen said...

Matty makes a nice catch to end T3. Clayton is not looking his Super Hero self. Still 0-0 but he's made close to 60 pitches in 3 inning.

Orel said...

We are weak as kittens.

Orel said...

Clayton's paying the price for pitching in October

karen said...

Kid K is at 72 pitches with bases juiced and still no one out in 4. Seems like he's walked a tightrope every inning except 1st when he struck out the side.

karen said...

@Orel...I've thought that at just about the whole team with the start we had.

karen said...

MKW is Very happy to see that Matty fixed his hair. All is well in Whoreland tonite.

Orel said...

Kershaw at 100 pitches in the 4th inning

karen said...

On 106th pitch from Clayton Fish hit a 3 run home run in 5th. Dodgers have had 1 hit. 3-0.

Orel said...

Wow.

karen said...

Realmuto hits a solo for fish. 4-0 with 2 out T6.

Orel said...

He's just keepin' it Realmuto.

Orel said...

A RUN WE GOT A RUN

karen said...

Matty hits a 2 run homer that brings the score to 6-3 in the 8th.

Orel said...

Matty homer!

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

NOW we see Kenley

karen said...

What is up with our infielders?? Kike, Cory and now an error by Chase, all throwing errors. 8-3 T9.

QuadSevens said...

Kenley pitched pretty well. The defense dropped a turd though in the ninth.

Orel said...

We're going to lose by one aren't we

QuadSevens said...

Yaz! 2 run bomb! That error by Chase sucks now.

Steve Sax said...

If we hadn't have given up 2 in the ninth, we'd be tied now

Steve Sax said...

If Woody had gone to the police, this would never have happened

Steve Sax said...

And, we lose. The series as well. To a crap team.

Orel said...

Back...to sucking!

karen said...

Final score 8-6 fish.

Goodnight all.

QuadSevens said...

I was waiting to see who would pop in with the "If Woody had gone to the police" line.

spank said...

yeah..Kershaw's great.
