Series Thread (Games 8-10): 4/6-8 @ Giants

Fri, 7:15p postponed until 4/28: Kenta Maeda vs Derek Holland
Sat, 1p: Rich Hill vs Chris Stratton SF 7, LAD 5 (14)
Sun 1p: Clayton Kershaw vs Ty Blach LAD 2, SF 1 (10)

Fear not, Dodger faithful! Our front office's extremely proactive off-season is about to pay off!

I know, it's hard to believe Stan Kasten loosened the purse strings so the Dodgers could trade a few scrub prospects for mega-slugger Giancarlo "Don't Call Me Mike" Stanton, but he did! Now Stanton is playing for the team he grew up rooting for!

And what luck we had when double threat Shohei Ohtani decided to pick the Dodgers to play for, joining his countryman Yu Darvish, who was signed when Friedman & Farhan dug in the couch cushions to find some spare change to shore up the rotation.

And thank god the Dodgers finally cut bait on deadweight Pedro Baez and re-invested in a real middle reliever, Brandon Morrow.

We're locked and loaded! It's going to be a great year, Dodger fans! Let's play — WAKES UP

DAMMIT

Hey Buddy!!! All the Stanton and stuff depressed me! I had to embrace the positive!!!

karen said...

TIED BABY!!!

Orel said...

It depressed me too! New 2018 team slogan?

Orel said...

Whaaaaaat???

karen said...

Na. our slogan for 2018 will be more like "It's been 30 fucking years. Our WS trophy is coming home".

QuadSevens said...

That's a better motto than Zaidi's "No sad hugs."

Orel said...

Did he really say that?

QuadSevens said...

Yeah. Saw it on one of the Backstage Dodgers episodes that was on earlier today.

QuadSevens said...

Hill leaves a fastball up and Oyster Pubes takes him deep. 3-1 Gnats.

karen said...

Orel's favorite RP Pedro Baez up in cooler.

Steve Sax said...

Matt Kemp is the reason why this team sucks. First and second, one out: Kemp pops out to second. Thanks, Matt!

Steve Sax said...

Matt Kemp sucks

karen said...

Watch it Saxy.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry.

But he is bad!

Steve Sax said...

TIED!

Steve Sax said...

Oh wait, Baez is in. Oh well

karen said...

THE CHUTSTER TIES IT UP.

karen said...

I love seeing Pantone 294 representing.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

karen said...

Franchise play by Pubes.

karen said...

Hi Senior!!! I hope you brought some juju with you. We really need it.

QuadSevens said...

A very pleasant good evening to you Delino.

Orel said...

Helluva pick by Logie Bear!

Orel said...

Loving the two Dodger fans behind home plate!

QuadSevens said...

Chagois looked good too.

Orel said...

TO THE 12th

Orel said...

Char-GWAH

QuadSevens said...

Puig didn't look good on that K.

QuadSevens said...

Damn! Bellinger down swinging.

Orel said...

Why do all our rallies start with two out

QuadSevens said...

Two on for Kiké. With Kershaw on deck.

Orel said...

Kershaw on deck!

Orel said...

to be replaced by Ryu!

Orel said...

oh and RANCHO ARDIENDO

QuadSevens said...

That was rough.

Orel said...

Uh oh...Kenley

QuadSevens said...

Let's see if his off day homework paid off.

Orel said...

Panik bloop single off Kenley

Orel said...

Kenley looks terrible. This will not end well

QuadSevens said...

We need a strikeout from Kenley.

Orel said...

Ks Longoria!

Orel said...

Wow, Kenley walked the tightrope!

Orel said...

TO THE 14th

QuadSevens said...

Puig needs to lick his bat.

QuadSevens said...

Leadoff single for Puig!

Orel said...

Dodger fans still repping!

Orel said...

Bellinger single moves Puig to third!

QuadSevens said...

First and third nobody out! Lets do this Dodgers!

Orel said...

CERTAINLY NOTHING WILL GO WRONG HERE

QuadSevens said...

Nothing went wrong there!!

karen said...

All right Logie Bear!!!!

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw pinch hitting!

Orel said...

Kershaw dinger here would be sweeeeeet

Orel said...

D'oh

karen said...

Helmets and seat belts on everyone...

Orel said...

Let's go Font

Orel said...

ugh

karen said...

I hate this.

Orel said...

Yuuuuuup.

Steve Sax said...

It’s not solely his fault for the loss, but this Font is so bad it’s Comic Sans

QuadSevens said...

That really sucked. Not your joke Sax, the game.

QuadSevens said...

The double switch killed us in extra twice. Ryu up with bases loaded and Kershaw up with two on and nobody out.

Fred's Brim said...

That was horrendous. We're in magic debt from last season and the collectors are calling

Orel said...

GAME 2
Taylor CF
Seager SS
Puig RF
Hernández 1B
Grandal C
Kemp LF
Forsythe 3B
Barnes 2B
Kershaw P

karen said...

HAPPY KERSHAW DAY!


@Offense...maybe some runs today?

Orel said...

Dear Karen,

We're still enjoying our nap.

Sincerely,
Offense

karen said...

@Offense...1-2-3 in the 1st. I am beginning to believe the whole nap excuse.

karen said...

You've been Kershed McCuttchen.

Orel said...

Scoreless after one. MORAL VICTORY

QuadSevens said...

I don’t think I like that Vin recorded something for the Gnats Twitter.

QuadSevens said...

Kiké was robbed on that liner.

karen said...

Matty my boy!!!

QuadSevens said...

Rancho Ardiendo for Barneso!

karen said...

@Q7...We all know that Vin is a class act but I don't like it either not one freaking bit.

QuadSevens said...

Crappy!

Orel said...

Apparently they played Vin's message on the scoreboard before the game.

Orel said...

Scoreless after two. PLAYOFFS

karen said...

Panda couldn't make it in big city Boston so with tail between legs he cried his way back to small market frisco where he can fail in relative anonymity.

Orel said...

He failed my two least favorite teams.

karen said...

Well the defense isn't napping. Looking good CT3.

Orel said...

We're a defensive juggernaut!

Orel said...

"POUNDS ONE DOWN THE LINE IT ISSSSSS foul." —Joe Davis

Orel said...

Two on, no out for us in the 4th

Orel said...

KempBI!

karen said...

....and we go ahead on a hit by WHO???

karen said...

Whom???

Orel said...

Aaaaaand Forsythe GIDPs to end the inning. Go Blue!

Orel said...

Mattycakes!

Orel said...

Seager walks to open the 6th

Orel said...

and is promptly stranded.

Orel said...

Wow the D is really saving our bacon. Puig starts the 9-6 DP to end the 6th!

karen said...

Gnats just got themselves Puig'd.

QuadSevens said...

The little girl in that Lexus commercial cracks me up! Her face when asked if she's excited for her little sister coming is great!

Orel said...

No way Kenley saves a 1-0 game, if we get that far

Orel said...

CT3 CS. I guess you can't fault them for being aggressive

Orel said...

This has loss written all over it

Orel said...

Tie game.

karen said...

I hate you Oyster Pubes.

QuadSevens said...

In Kershaw's three starts this year, he's received 2 runs in support.

Fred's Brim said...

The look on Clayton's face on the bench that inning: "I'm done with this shit"

He opted out of the rest of his contract by the end of the inning

Orel said...

Rangers clearing a spot for him as we speak.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Ugh, why is Utley still on the team again?

Orel said...

Veterangrithustle.

Orel said...

Farmer!

QuadSevens said...

Farmer coming through!

QuadSevens said...

One run lead with Kenley coming in. It's butt clenching time!

Orel said...

—The Thing

Orel said...

Ks Fatty!

Orel said...

Ks Greasy!

QuadSevens said...

Belt upset by the backwards K.

QuadSevens said...

Win!

Orel said...

WIN
