Games 38-40 Thread: May 20-22 @ Phillies

Fri 5.20 4p: Urias vs. R Suarez
Sat 5.21 3p: TBD vs. Nola
Sun 5.22 10.30a: Gonsolin vs. Eflin

Remember last week, when the Phillies came into town and spanked us in three out of four games (the Dodgers avoiding a sweep only when Gavin Lux came through for an unlikely walkoff win)? Well now we are back in their house, except this time we only have two starters named for a three-game series. So I'm not expecting much brotherly love this weekend.

The Dodgers start the weekend only 1.5 games ahead of San Diego (who took two of three from the Phillies this week).

Dodgers bus had a tire blow out on the freeway on their way to the park. Bill Plunkett who is playing the part of Kirsten Watson for the weekend was on the bus and said it was scary but nobody was hurt and the team was only 20 minutes late to the park.

spank said...

Dodgers signed Pedro Baez to a minor league contract. I was thinking about.him when Hudson and Kimbrel were serving it up a few games ago. Scary move.

spank said...

I saw on the twitters that Spiderman wanted to fix the flat tire on the bus.

karen said...

Way back when we first had Baez I saw a feature on him and his family on Backstage Dodgers. He had the most lovely family and I wanted to root for him so bad. We all know how that turned out though.'Nough said.

1-0 LA on an RBI groundout by JT

karen said...

After 1 Good Guys up 1-0.

karen said...

I've heard about the auto caller for balls and strikes and while I hate all the change, the balls and strikes calls have been so bad the last few years something needs to be done.

Steve Sax said...

Hanser with a one-out single in the top of the second

spank said...

Nice Freddie.

QuadSevens said...

2 RBI single for Freddie!

spank said...

3-0 LA,yo

karen said...

Julio looking better so far tonight.

spank said...

Damn. Bases loaded fail by Dodgers.

spank said...

That's a wrap,sleepy heads. 4-1 LA

karen said...

@Sax...I was having problems again with comments disappearing last night. Sorry, I don't mean to be a pain but wanted you to know. Spanky has also been having problems and said that this happened before a long time ago. I don't remember that happening but Spank said that somehow it got fixed and there have not been problems again until now.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit I am sorry to read that Karen. What happens? Comment suddenly disappears how much later?

Steve Sax said...

GAME 2

Betts RF
Freeman 1B
Trea Turner SS
Smith C
Muncy 3B
Justin Turner DH
Bellinger CF

Mitch White P

karen said...

@Sax....It seems like my first comments are fine but as the game goes on I post something and then post a second time before someone else does the first post will disappear. So what I tried to do was to refresh to make sure there were posts after mine but then the refresh started bouncing my comments. I have rebooted like we talked about and sometimes it works and sometime it doesn't. I don't know what you can do. Maybe Spank has some ideas. Like I said he remembers this happening before and he knows A LOT more about computers than I do.

Steve Sax said...

Maybe we have to start paying out IT department a bit better.

karen said...

@Sax...Hey, your the boss dude!! Keep our IT guys happy!

Seriously though I know you're pretty much doing all the work keeping us afloat here and I really hate to point out a problem.

karen said...

Bryce Harper back in the Phillies lineup today.

Uh-oh.

karen said...

1-0 Phils after 2.

CT3 leads off third with a K.

karen said...

MOOKIE GOES DEEP TO TIE THIS MAMA UP!!! 1-1 T3

karen said...

Mitch not fooling anyone in B3. Bohm just hit a 2 run homer to put Phils ahead 3-1. David Price coming in.

Steve Sax said...

Mitch only lasts 2.1 IP and gives up 3 ER. May as well pitch Hanser Alberto if we are gonna throw that crap out there

Steve Sax said...

Padres nipping at our heels. Their second win over the Giants puts them only a game back of us. And Machado is still on fire

Steve Sax said...

Price yields a one-out single to Harper, but then gets Castellanos to GIDP. 3-1 Phils through 3

karen said...

Nola has 8 Ks after 4.1 innings. 4-1 Phillies T5.

karen said...

@Sax....Isn't Tatis Jr due back in June. I think I heard or read that somewhere.

karen said...

4-3 Phils after Mookie drives in 2. Scared the crap out of me when he got hurt but he stayed in the game.

Steve Sax said...

Was listening on the radio for that Mookie play. Rick Monday made it sound pretty bad. Hope Mookie is ok.

Steve Sax said...

Slappy ties it up!!!

Steve Sax said...

Muncy is batting .164. Unbelievable

spank said...

Yeah,peeps... I remember the disappearing comments happening years ago. Not sure why it happened. I'd restart the computer and it'd work sometimes but was never a sure bet it would work. It kinda sorted itself out I was think. I was gone for a while but it started happening again a few weeks ago.

spank said...

Bases juiced for Belli

spank said...

Damn. Couldn't score with bases loaded again. Been seeing too much of that shit.

Steve Sax said...

Max Muncy is killing us

karen said...

What a play by Mookie!!! Throws the go ahead run out at the plate.

spank said...

Pinchi Mookie! Fuck yeah!!

Steve Sax said...

Two on, none out for the Dodgers here in T8

Steve Sax said...

Betts is amazing.

Steve Sax said...

Come on, CT3.

Steve Sax said...

WP makes two RISP for Lux

karen said...

With the Armed Force cap on Dominguez is looking a little like Fidel Castro.

Steve Sax said...

LUX!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Lux knocks PR Barnes from second. Great AB for Lux, an eight-pitch AB

Steve Sax said...

Bella scores on a WP while Betts is AB! 6-4 LA

spank said...

Phillies falling apart here

Steve Sax said...

Hudson gets Harper to line to left. And then Castellanos flies to center.

Steve Sax said...

Barnesy!

Steve Sax said...

Barnes solo HR makes it 7-4 LA, T9

spank said...

Barnsy!!

karen said...

Spiderman coming in for the save....

Steve Sax said...

WIN

karen said...

7 IN A ROW BABY!!!!

spank said...

Spiderman wraps it up.

Steve Sax said...

Why does David Vassegh keep calling it “PhilaDOLPHia”? Is he a dolph lungren fan?!

Steve Sax said...

That was a big win

Steve Sax said...

Love the fact that we were down 4-1 and battled back to a 7-4 victory.

Early game tomorrow! Let’s goooooo

Steve Sax said...

GAME 3

Betts RF
Freeman 1B
Trea Turner SS
Rios DH
Muncy 2B
Justin Turner 3B
Bellinger CF
Lux LF
Barnes C

Gonsolin P

Steve Sax said...

CT3 sits. Lux shoehorned in at left. Rios with the DH sighting.

karen said...

HAPPY CATERDAY ALL!!!

spank said...

Lux in left field is scary

karen said...

Lux makes a good catch in left for the first out of B1.

karen said...

@Spank....I'm laughing cause you commented about Lux being scary in left and I'm going 'Oh great catch'!!

spank said...

@ Karen - haha. Yeah he burned me with that catch. Dude doesn't look comfortable out there from what I've seen.

karen said...

Mookie hits another HR!!!! 1-0 Boys T3.

spank said...

Mookie!!

Steve Sax said...

Let’s go

karen said...

Gold Glove Cody tracks down another one in center. 1-0 LA after 3.

karen said...

Rios goes deep to the opposite field!! 2-0 Boys!

It seems like our Boys are either striking out or hitting it out.

spank said...

Rios!

Steve Sax said...

Rios with a solo shot! Sorry this is late, I was driving and didn’t want to text and drive 😜

karen said...

6-4-3 GIDP. It's so pretty when the Dodgers turn the DP. Not so much when the enemy does it.

Steve Sax said...

Muncy is killing us. Again

karen said...

Those 2 strike calls may be the worst I've ever seen. Of course they went in our favor so the ump is forgiven.

This time.

spank said...

Bit of a pitching duel despite the solo homeruns

spank said...

I wonder if Phillies fans get free jumbo jacks if Van Heflin strikes out 10

spank said...

Ill never understand why athletes sign with shitty teams just for few extra million. I'd be signing with the Dodgers or Lakers first chance I get for whatever moneys. I'll mow lawns in the off-season if I have to just to play for my team.

karen said...

Harper up in ninth.

Let's all fasten our seatbelts.

karen said...

Going to extras.

I am not fond of the whole ghost runner crap.

Steve Sax said...

Darn it. Extra baseball.

Steve Sax said...

@karen: I’m good with the ghost runner in extras, even though the Dodgers don’t seem to do well with it

spank said...

2 on no out for Freddy

spank said...

That sucked

spank said...

Good stuff Trea

Steve Sax said...

Max Muncy is killing us.

spank said...

Dammit Muncy

spank said...

Dodgers gotta be the worse team with the bases juiced to score runs.

karen said...

JT is a god!!!

spank said...

Now that was a veteran play by JT. Damn.

karen said...

Is there anyone who thinks taking in a Dodgers game on a Sunday afternoon is relaxing???

Just wondering.

spank said...

FUCK

karen said...

@Sax....Your opinion on Muncy killing us??

Agreed.

Steve Sax said...

Muncy is KILLING US

karen said...

Short memory time for the Dodgers. Tomorrows another day.
