Help us Clayton Kershaw, you’re our only hope.

The Dodgers have scored two runs in the first three games in this series with the Brewers. My optimistic prediction of them winning two games in the poll question from the other day was blown away by the winds of…you know. So, like Princess Leia’s plea to Obi-Wan Kenobi, we can only ask the same of Kershaw.

This Day in Dodgers History

August 18, 1982 – In the second longest game in franchise history, the Cubs lose to the Dodgers, 2-1. The Wrigley Field contest, which is played over two days, takes a Dusty Baker sacrifice fly and 21 innings to complete.

    Since I picked one win this series…..this has to be it! Come on Kersh, do your thing and, please guys, HIT THE FUC*ING BALL!!!!!

    • JhallWally says:

      Good morning Trumom. I also picked one win in this series. And, it was this one with Kersh going. Its a total farce that our starters basicallly have to pitch a shutout to get a win because of the piss poor roster of shit that Ned has put together. Hell, even if the starter throws 6 or 7 innings of shutout ball, there’s a better than 50% chance that the bullpen will blow it in the 7th or 8th inning. Guerra has been OK if we can get to the 9th with a lead.
      Time to bench Loweeney and put Blake out to pasture. Also, they need to permanently bench or DFA that lazy ass Navarro. That fat ass son of a bitch didn’t even try to get in front of those balls in the dirt from Lindblom. He may not have been able to block them but you at least have to try. Worthless piece of shit.

      Well, you would think we could score more than a run against Estrada today. He is there weakest link and we have our strongest going. Go Clayton!!!!

      • trublu4ever says:

        I agree. We are going nowhere so, I’d bring back Jerry & AJ. Hell, they can’t do worse than what we’ve been putting out there. What is scary to me, is the fact, that Uribe is working to come back…yuck! I like the way Sellers plays his position and Gordon is a speedster. Perhaps, if Donnie must play Juan, bench Carroll or Miles and keep the kids!

        • JhallWally says:

          Have to agree with you Tru. Play the kids. At this point, there is nothing to lose and it is more exciting to see what the kids can do. Will also help having some insight as to what we have going forward. I think it is a given that it is going to take awhile to finally oust Frank from the owners box and that we will not be major players in the off season FA market. Really not much out there worth a shit beyond Fielder and Pufols anyway.

          Unfortunately, Ned has put too many of the Dodger eggs in Uribes’ basket and we are stuck with his sorry ass for at least another year and a half. I look for Ned to bring Miles and Rivera next year. It is definately time to move on and let Loweeney and Broxton move on. We’ll probably see Sands and/or Rivera at 1st next year. They can’t be any worse than VeLoney and might actually hit for some power.

          I can see them bringing Gwynn back as well to be the forth outfielder. I’m OK with that for the right price. Could be a good battle for SS between Sellers and Gordon.

          And for the love of God and the game of baseball, please don’t bring back Barfajas and Nobatro. Geez!! Bring up AJ and Federwhatever in Sept and cut those two turds loose. Hopefully Ned can trade one of them before Aug 31 as I’m sure they will clear waivers.

          Anyway, might as well get the hot stove warmed up early. Hope Kersh pitches a gem today.

            While we’re at it: when Dee Gordon comes back from the DL, Ned needs to DFA Eugenio4ever and let Sellers be the super-utility guy.

          • JhallWally says:

            Totally agree with you on that STT!!

          • Don’t know if you read the Ned Q&A interview I posted last night, but in it he says that they only expected about 15 HR and 65 or so RBI from Uribe in the first place. That in itself is pretty friggin pathetic. If that’s what you expected, why sign him in the first place?, and sure as hell why sign him for $7M a year?

          • JhallWally says:

            I read that Beav. If I were Ned I wouldn’t admit that I signed a guy for 7M and that is all I expected. Of course, old Neddy ain’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.

            And we’re paying Ethier 9.5M or so and we’ll be lucky if we get 15 homers and 65 rbi from him. And he’ll probably want a freaking raise in arbitration. Geez!!! Give me a break.

          • All I got out of that interview was “poor me.” Not once have I ever seen Ned take responsibility for any of the messes he’s created.

          • JhallWally says:

            I haven’t seen one thing where he takes responsibility for his poor trades and signings. I think the stupid bastard actually believes he is doing a good job. He is that freaking clueless.

  2. selltheteam says:

    The only way the Dodgers win today is if Clayton provides the offense himself.

    • JhallWally says:

      Hi’Ya Crash. Good to see you. Good point. With this dung heap, Kersh is pretty much on his own. Good to see they benched Nobatro and Loweeney today. If I never see either of them play again, it would be too soon.

  3. 32and53fan says:

    Dodgers lineup vs. Brewers:
    Gwynn 7
    Sellers 6
    Ethier 9
    Kemp 8
    Rivera 3
    Miles 5
    Barajas 2
    Carroll 4
    Kershaw 1

  4. selltheteam says:

    zzzzzzzzzzzz – wake me up when somebody scores a run.

  5. JhallWally says:

    Wah-Hoo!! There’s your run Kersh, make it stand up.

  6. trublu4ever says:

    F*CK! Another freaking DP!!!!

  7. Dre’s value continues to plummet. I doubt he could get a hit off of Eric Estrada.

    We also have to lead the majors in guys getting thrown out at the plate.

  8. It amazes me sometimes how this team doesn’t own the worst record in baseball.

  9. Looks like Barajass is playing for his next years Ned stupid contract.

  10. lbirken says:

    Go figure that Barajas and Carroll would be the run producers after all the negative comments made about these players.

  11. That was a good AB for Juan.

  12. trublu4ever says:

    My packing “heat” worked! I was almost ready to go for some “ass” 😉

  13. Think our bully can hold a 5 run lead in the 9th?

  14. selltheteam says:

    Uh-oh! Bullpen’s coming in! It better be Javy!

  15. JhallWally says:

    WTG Kersh. I’m surprised that Dildon is not going to let him finish up this game. He’s only at 104 pitches.

  16. trublu4ever says:

    Javy….this is for you!——->

  17. JhallWally says:

    Wah-Hoo, win streak!!! WTG Kersh!!!!

  18. trublu4ever says:

    I’m glad for Kersh! Nice support for him guys.

  19. lbirken says:

    Folks, I am not too surprised Donnie did not let Kershaw finish this game. Let’s face it, this game doesn’t mean anything to the Dodgers with regard to how the team will finish in the standings and most likely it should not matter for the Brewers. Other than padding Kersh’s stats, what other purpose is there to add more pitches to his arm? Why not see what Javy can do? Is he ready to be the closer we all know the Dodgers need? I am not convinced quite yet, are you? The experience will help. Anyway, other than not getting the shut out, things worked out o.k. for today.

  20. selltheteam says:

    Javy’s the best we’ve got for now. Kenley Jansen, once he’s back, is the other current candidate for closer.

    Oh well, it was just a matter of time until the shit pile started steaming.

    Colletti on Uribe 11/30/10:

    “He brings great enthusiasm for the game,” Colletti said. “He’s got thunder in the bat, too. As we witnessed late in the season, he can change the game. His enthusiasm, his passion for the game is what made him a Dodger today.”

    Colletti on Uribe 8/14/11:

    “Going into the offseason, we needed someone to play in the middle of the diamond and could be a run producer. We didn’t expect him to duplicate what he did last year, but certainly didn’t expect this type of season. We thought 15, 16 homers and 65, 70 RBIs which, when you look at his track record, isn’t that far off line with what he’s been able to accomplish.”

    Wait a sec, let’s run that through the bullshit filter…….

    11/30/10: “I just signed Joe Friggin’ DiMaggio!”

    8/14/11: “Hey, the asshole went 24/85 just last year! It’s not my fault! Wait, I have it! I’ll just lie right out of my butt! I’ll tell them that all we really expected was 15/65 since that’s not that far off line with his career numbers! What? He averages 19/76? He’s stuck on 4/28!!!! Well, nobody will actually look it up anyway. No one blames me for anything, they all hate Frank!”

    Screw you Ned. Screw you Frank.

    To celebrate his 600th home run, Jim Thome is donating $20K to the Twins charities and $10K to each affiliated charities for the Indians, Phillies, White Sox, and the Dodgers. What a class act!!
    ……..and here the Dodgers sit with the most selfish, despicable owner in all of sports.
