Series Thread (Games 126-128): August 20-22 vs. Cards

Monday 8/20 7p: Wood vs. Gomber
Tuesday 8/21 7p: Ryu vs. Poncedeleon
Wednesday 8/22 7p: Buehler vs. Flaherty

We just took the series in Seattle, winning two games with huge offensive outputs, and losing the middle game despite a valiant comeback due to another shaky bullpen effort and a questionable balk call. But with only 37 games to go, we sit two games out of the divisional lead, in third place (behind Arizona and Colorado, a half-game back of the Snakes), and host a red-hot Cardinals team (8-2 in their last 10 games) who is also vying for a playoff spot (and is closer than we are in the wild card race by a game).

A series victory would be great against the Redbirds, but will it be in the cards?

Dodgers load bases with no out, fail to score. Lather rinse repeat

Muncy with a pinch hit RBI single on a 103 mph pitch! 3-3 going to the 8th.

Johnny Blanchard said...

Cardinals’ RF is a gigantic spaz

Johnny Blanchard said...

I cannot believe what a hack Muncy is with the glove!!!!

Johnny Blanchard said...

Thank you very much ozuna. He was gonna get himself a home run!

Johnny Blanchard said...

Can we hit this PONCE Deleon fastball????? Let’s go dozier

Steve Sax said...

Loss for Game 2. Our playoff odds are plummeting; we are currently below Arizona's playoff odds to win the west.

I can't believe we can't beat the Cardinals' braintrust of Skip Young and Frank Zappa. COME ON!!!

spank said...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Goddammit.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, I was hoping for a series victory, and we can’t even get a single victory.

Pathetic.

Johnny Blanchard said...

well, far be it for me to get my correlation out of line with causation, but I don't like the cut of Manny's jib. Maybe it's all bad luck and pressing, but he just does not do IT. He should have spit on that slider last night with the bases loaded, fouling it away but certainly not trying to pull it.

I pray he figures it out, with the rest of these jabrones.

QuadSevens said...

Maybe playing some ping pong tonight can be the slump buster our offense needs.

Johnny Blanchard said...

I think if manny Machado can get his head out of his ass we might get something done still this season.

spank said...

i think that ping pong helped,mr.quad

Johnny Blanchard said...

Pads are pusses. Dodgers need to play hard and play tough. I say clubhouse brawl would wake up Manny. Or maybe sleep with his wife. Someone please watch Major League and figure this it bc We are winning by 10 and Manny has done jack shit.

Cliff Beefpile said...

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dang, more technical difficulties at the Stadium. What a season.

Cliff Beefpile said...
