2020 NLDS Game 1 Thread: Oct 6 vs. Padres, 6.30p

Buehler vs. Clevinger

Though MLB's four Division Series all feature divisional rivalries (all the Central teams were knocked out in the Wild Card round), the Los Angeles-San Diego one seems the spiciest. In yesterday's LAT, Dylan Hernandez characterized this rivalry as revered class vs. brash upstart.. All I see is a smokin' hot offensive team (Manny Machado, Feernando Tatis Jr., and Wil Myers, to start) vs. an offense that, besides Mookie Betts and Corey Seager, has been inconsistent or injured or flailing for most of this shortened season.

While one could see the Milwaukee Brewers lose life and energy with every inning, the Padres won't have any of that in this series. And we already know that the baseball gods continue to be cruel. So yeah, I'm worried about this one. Game 1 is critical.

Barves come back against the Fish to take a 1-0 series lead. Fuck the Astros leading the A's in Game 2

QuadSevens said...

The Baseball Gods adding on more cruelty. Astros take a 2-0 series lead.

Orel said...

If we win this year, we go through the best

Orel said...

Also, go Lakers! Don't shit the bed again!

Steve Sax said...

LAT reports that Edwin Rios was left off the NLDS roster because he suffered an injury in Sunday's workout. What the heck was that workout?!

Orel said...

Carry the entire team?

Orel said...

Yankees falling apart

spank said...

Epale,y'all! Fuck the Padres!! Love to Eddie VH! RIP.

Orel said...

Damn Stanton just smoked a 3-run HR

Orel said...

Opening of "Women in Love" = genius

Orel said...

HERE WE GO

Orel said...

Two pitches, one out

spank said...

@ Orel tru dat. women in lobe

Orel said...

Tatís singles

Orel said...

Buehler touches 98 vs Machado

Orel said...

Tatís SB but Buehler Ks Manny

Orel said...

Buehler escapes but throws 20 pitches in the 1st

spank said...

nice

QuadSevens said...

Let’s get the bats started early!

Steve Sax said...

Clevinger’s worst inning is his first. We gotta get to him early or it’s bad

Orel said...

Lakers still look like shit

Orel said...

Clevinger is Urias?

QuadSevens said...

We need the good Turner this series now.

Orel said...

Corey walks!

Orel said...

Just gonna watch these fastballs right down the middle

QuadSevens said...

That was not the good Turner.

Orel said...

And swing at the slider away

karen said...

I've never seen Clevinger pitch. Now this guy is someone that Vin would say makes coffee nervous.

Orel said...

Corey takes second on a WP. Let's cash him in

Orel said...

Muncy walks!

Orel said...

Goddamit

Orel said...

At least Clevinger threw 22 pitches

spank said...

damn

Orel said...

Buehler having control issues. Walks Pham to lead off the 2nd. Certainly that will not come back and bite us in the ass

spank said...

jesus christ. calm the fuck down Buehler

karen said...

Buehler not feeling it yet

Orel said...

Walker doesn't have it today. Hope he keeps it close before we have to bring in Urias

spank said...

are we wasting reviews already
?

Orel said...

Yep!

Orel said...

Padres are being very selective at the plate

Orel said...

Buehler walks the bases loaded

Orel said...

Urias better be warming up

Orel said...

Buehler is a mess

QuadSevens said...

Big strikeout! Two down!

spank said...

glad i decided not to quit drinking today.

Orel said...

Ks Profar!

Orel said...

Always a wise decision, spank

Steve Sax said...

Buehler is a mess right now

Orel said...

Rays take a 6-4 lead in the 5th

Orel said...

Treinen warming?

QuadSevens said...

99, 99, 99! Strikeout!

Steve Sax said...

HUGE K

QuadSevens said...

We need to score some runs to help out Buehler.

Steve Sax said...

Buehler has 152 pitches through 2 frames

Steve Sax said...

Clevinger just missed bad with those two pitches. Mound visit

Orel said...

Clevinger OUT!

QuadSevens said...

Mid at bat pitching change. Going to be interesting.

Orel said...

Lakers take a 5-point lead in the 3rd

Orel said...

Cody draws the leadoff walk

Steve Sax said...

Joc Ks badly. sigh

Steve Sax said...

CT3 flies out, 0-0 through 2.

Steve Sax said...

great inning for Buehler! 1-2-3

Orel said...

Rays lead 7-4 in the 7th

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers are being NO-HIT through three.

0-0

Orel said...

Buehler got a little too cocky throwing those 97 mph fastballs down the pipe

Steve Sax said...

1-0 SD and they're looking for more. Their bullpen looks loose and happy. Buehler is already at 93 pitches and looks shaky again.

Steve Sax said...

1-0 SD through 3.5 on the Austin Nola RBI single.

Orel said...

Lakers up 9 with 39.5 seconds left!

Orel said...

Two on, two out for CT3

Orel said...

Wow AD coming up big in the closing moments

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Orel said...

Mookie did not deliver

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers get two walks and a HBP but can't score in the fourth.

We still are BEING NO-HIT through 4

Steve Sax said...

Lakers win

Steve Sax said...

I'm moving from my Elysian beer to something else. Need to shake this up

spank said...

good lord Lakers. i need a shot and a smoke and i'll come back to this one. Lasorda! Kobe! Eddie!

spank said...

space dust up in dis bish,Saxy

Steve Sax said...

Buehler gone. May in

Orel said...

Yanks have two on, no out down three in the 9th

Orel said...

May pitches a 1-2-3 inning!

Orel said...

Yankees strike out twice after getting two walks

Orel said...

7-5 Rays, two out in the 9th

Orel said...

Oh and Aaron Judge is up

Orel said...

Rays win

Orel said...

Full count on Corey

Orel said...

Pops out

QuadSevens said...

I want to see Turner smash a bomb right here. Need some energy.

QuadSevens said...

It’s a start maybe?

Orel said...

JT draws a walk COME ON MOTHERFUCKERS GET A HIT

Orel said...

It's a start, Quad

Orel said...

Full count on Muncy now

QuadSevens said...

That pitcher did not look like fun to face for any lefty.

Orel said...

Goddammit

Orel said...

WP advances JT to 2nd

Orel said...

Fresh Prince has such good plate discipline. Two on, two out for Cody

QuadSevens said...

A gift run!

Orel said...

Orel said...

GODDAMN GLOBE LIFE SHIT PARK

Steve Sax said...

We'll take it.

Dodgers still being NO-HIT

spank said...

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

@spank 9.15p, we're going to need more than one more run

Orel said...

We're going to need a whole Globeful of runs

spank said...

i got greedy

Orel said...

At least May is dealing

Orel said...

May is pissed he didn't get the start!

spank said...

that was a damn nice strikeout

QuadSevens said...

A one out walk for CT3. Let’s get it going again!

QuadSevens said...

Mookie with our first hit!

QuadSevens said...

Padres manager has been tossed for arguing with the home plate ump! I love it!

QuadSevens said...

He was letting the F-bombs fly!

Orel said...

Tingler was hot under the collar

QuadSevens said...

We have a lead! Sac fly for Seager!

Orel said...

C'mon Corey

Orel said...

Yeah you're not going to throw CT3 out from deep left

Orel said...

Yeah you're not going to throw Mookie out from shallow right

QuadSevens said...

Turner with an RBI followed by a Muncy double! 3-1 Dodgers now.

spank said...

get the fuck off the field

spank said...

i'm on delay. pay no mind. im out

Orel said...

They IBB Smith to load the bases and get to Cody MAKE THEM PAY

Orel said...

Man Cody cannot catch up to those pitches

QuadSevens said...

Keep watching Spanky. You’re gonna like what happens!

Orel said...

Fuck and yes. 4-1 Dodgers

Orel said...

And...RANCHO ARDIENDO

Steve Sax said...

Wow, both for Muncy and for Belli this inning could be huge. If we can open those two bats up for this postseason...

Orel said...

WP makes it 5-1!

spank said...

i went on a drunk tangent and missed evertything. i';m a team player so fuck yeah!

QuadSevens said...

@Spanky Drunk tangent sounds perfect for this crew.

Orel said...

Hell yeah spank. There is no I in DRUNK

Orel said...

Even Mookie can't crack this park

Steve Sax said...

5-1 LA through 7.

Steve Sax said...

Grisham, Tatis, and Machado due up in the 8th

Steve Sax said...

Longboard down. I'm on hite extra cold now. Which is basically water.

Orel said...

Miller Hite?

Steve Sax said...

Grisham leadoff double, a rocket shot down the right field line.

Orel said...

Grisham leads off the 8th with a double off VGo

Steve Sax said...

V-Gon, gone.

Treinen in.

Tatis looking plugged in there in the on-deck circle. I'm nervous.

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

Here's the game: Tatís & Machado up with a man in scoring position

Steve Sax said...

Treinen Ks Tatis away. 1 out

Orel said...

Treinen Ks Tatís. Huge

Steve Sax said...

@Orel 10.07, what's your "DAMMIT" for? The leadoff double?

Steve Sax said...

(i hope)

spank said...

i'm alternating space dust ,sierra nevada,shots of whiskey. LA.

spank said...

im in the 8th. Dodgers win already. Dammit

Orel said...

Treinen gets Manny to ground out. Another huge out

Steve Sax said...

Machado rockets one to Seager, who holds Grisham on second and then throws out Manny at first. Hosmer up.

Orel said...

@Sax, 10:12: It's for being beaten to the punch by you

QuadSevens said...

Treinen putting in work!

Steve Sax said...

Treinen Ks Hosmer. On to B8, 5-1 LA.

Orel said...

For all the shit that Doc gets managing the bullpen, he managed that inning perfectly

Steve Sax said...

@Orel oh i get it

one thing that is definitely crazy nowadays is how all of us are watching this using different feeds. I have Gameday on my phone plus AT&TNow on my computer (streaming). I feel like I'm 15 seconds behind

Orel said...

I'm on the Spectrum app, which is at least 30 seconds behind the main feed

Orel said...

Fucking shift

Steve Sax said...

Seager ropes it but right into the shifted Machado in short right.

Steve Sax said...

@Orel, I thought you had a cable landline as well?

Steve Sax said...

Fox broadcasters advocating to ban the shift.

I don't know if I'm there.

Orel said...

How about some Geico boys

Steve Sax said...

Let's go, Max

Orel said...

@Sax: I do but I'm watching on my TV that has a Roku attached

Steve Sax said...

Max almost gets all of it, but flies out to the warning track.

5-1 LA through 8, and here's KJ.

QuadSevens said...

Kenley coming in. Time to clench.

Orel said...

JESUS HOW WAS THAT NOT A HOMER

Orel said...

Alanna Rizzo @alannarizzo 57s

Treinen back out for the 9th inning.

QuadSevens said...

No Kenley after all. Not yet at least.

Steve Sax said...

Oh wow, they are letting it roll with Treinen.

Fly out on the first pitch.

QuadSevens said...

One out and now Kenley’s coming in.

Orel said...

Treinen gets Pham. In comes Kenley

Steve Sax said...

Treinen out, now KJ comes on with one out in the ninth.

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

anddddddddd, here's that Casper the Friendly Ghost (TM) Geico commercial again.

Steve Sax said...

oh, i owe a DAMMIT as well

QuadSevens said...

I’m watching on Spectrum, not an app. Slight advantage for me.

Orel said...

Kenley doesn't generally like coming in in the middle of an inning

Orel said...

Kenley's first pitch: 88 mph but good placement

Orel said...

91 mph, swing and a miss

Steve Sax said...

Kenley up 0-2, now 1-2

Steve Sax said...

Myers K on four pitches. Last one was high heat.

Orel said...

90 mph strikeout!

Steve Sax said...

Do the Padres get to replace Clevinger on the post-season roster?

Orel said...

I think if they do then they can't bring him back for the next round

Steve Sax said...

Oh, i get it. from ESPN:

Should San Diego replace Clevinger on its division series roster, he would be ineligible to pitch in the NL Championship Series, as well.

Steve Sax said...

DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

WIN

Steve Sax said...

5-1 win! May gets the win.

QuadSevens said...

Woohoo!

Orel said...

WIN

Orel said...

DAMMIT and not even close!

Steve Sax said...

this is not a good postgame show (a-rod, ortiz, and big hurt)

Steve Sax said...

Ken Rosenthal does not look as diminutive when he is interviewing JT from social distance

spank said...

orale

Steve Sax said...

JT: .391 in division series (minimum 75 PA). Best in division series history

Orel said...

But they have Dontrelle!
