NL Pennant Chase Begins

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 12, 2018

Very interesting game tonight in Milwaukee. One outcome sees Kershaw and his experience shutting down a Brewer team that’s been off for a while and don’t have any players with experience in games of this magnitude. And I’m sorry but Gio starting Game 1?

Another outcome sees Kershaw tossing another one of his patented post season clunkers and the Milwaukee bullpen shutting down the Dodger hitters.

So I could see either team winning 8-1.

You?

    I know he doesn’t hit LHP all that well and I’m not sure how he’s hit Kershaw in the past, but I have a feeling Mike Moustakas is going to go off tonight. Brewcrew 5-3.

    • Flavor said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:46 am

      interesting. Yelich hits him very well 9 for 17. Mousey has never faced him but I’m starting to smell what you’re steppin’ in. I might do one team at draftkings with Mousey

    The Brew Crew plays fast and loose. Gio Gonzalez notwithstanding. 6-2 Milwaukee.

    Brew crew is rolling winning 10 of their last 11 no reason not to knock off Opie&his dogpile!
    6-2 Brew Crew..

    Fuck, it’s Buck.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 5:10 pm

      Blade like a bad rash that never goes away we’re always stuck with Buck& Pee Wee Herman!!

  5. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    My hatred for the Dodgers go way back as I have mentioned many times, I don’t even want a gleam of satisfaction for Tom Lasorda are even Vin Scully winning a final W/S championship before they both keel over!!
    Fuck LA!!!!

  6. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    That’s a real crowd of diehard Brewer fans, not the plastic surgery crowd LA offers.
    Like the strategy of starting Gonzalez, only cause he’s lefty and if they steal this one , Chacin can get them up 2 zip going to the latrine..Fuck LA!!

  7. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    Just getting 23 pitches out of Opie in the 1st is a win for Brewers..

  8. Macdog said, on October 12, 2018 at 5:37 pm

    Uh-oh, if Machado gets hot, this could be trouble.

  9. Macdog said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    Woody!

  10. Flavor said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    hilarious.

    • blade3colorado said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:10 pm

      Option year for Kershaw too. I guess we know he’s staying in LA. lulz

  11. xoot said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:10 pm

    Kershaw looks exhausted

  12. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:20 pm

    And everyone moves up. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  13. blade3colorado said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    Loving this. Passed balls, elevated pitch count, catcher fuckups, and . . . the only thing missing is Rooster. Oh wait, he’s still at dinner.

    • Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:28 pm

      I guess those lines can be really long at that joint he hangs at.

      • blade3colorado said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:33 pm

        It’s amazing how those lines magically disappear when the Bums win.

  14. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:39 pm

    Yeah, E7.

  15. Macdog said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    Did Grandal move to LF?

    • Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:43 pm

      In my opinion Mac, that is POTD.

  16. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:41 pm

    Typical Dodger baseball,bumbling plays looking like shit I love it!!
    Keep it coming Brewers!!
    Fuck LA!!

  17. blade3colorado said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:42 pm

    Kershaw face planting in this game almost makes up for the misery of the Giants September.

  18. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:42 pm

    Fuck yeah!!
    Opie ‘s done!!

  19. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:42 pm

    Oh yeah, Brewing now.

  20. Lurker John said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    GO CREW!

  21. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:50 pm

    Didn’t take long for those pussies in the booth to defend Kershaw on his teammates miscues.
    What about his own miscues of getting lit 🔥 up!!

  22. Macdog said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:53 pm

    Brauny!

  23. Flavor said, on October 12, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    boy v man

  24. blade3colorado said, on October 12, 2018 at 7:10 pm

    Prior to the game, Fox is trying to “sell” Kershaw being a playoff stud and any issues he had previously were in the past. Total bullshit. Same thing AK just pointed out with regard to this outing – making excuses for him (again). The graphic BF posted from Tiger Rant says it all as well . . . Fox’s worst nightmare is having the Brewers and Astros in the World Series.

  25. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 7:12 pm

    For me, Kershaw is one of those players that as much as I hate his team, I don’t *hate* him. He’s always seemed like a nice guy, good teammate, admirable talent. Soooo many Dodgers I can think of that I did *hate* but not him. Yeah, Steve, option year for him, and rumor seems to be that he’s considering opting out to check out free agency to try to get something a bit more than the 2 remaining years he has with LA. Translation: he’s possibly thinking that 2 years from now, he won’t be worth much: that bad back of his is only going to get worse. Window, closing. As long as LA keeps losing in the post-season, I don’t mind Kershaw achieving what he can. And we all know he will never come close to approaching MadBum’s post-season success.

      Cue the knowing dude head nod…..

      • Flavor said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:10 pm

        i agree with you, btw, Kershaw seems like a stand up guy, someone easy to like. Too bad he plays for the shitheads

  27. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 7:28 pm

    Hader, K em.

  28. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 7:31 pm

    On the other hand, MLB has a story about Verlander poised to join the most elite of post-season pitchers (Pettite, Smoltz, Glavine, Stewart), with no mention of MadBum, as the story focused only on the total number of post-season wins. The story mentions Verlander’s stellar post-season stats starting in 2013. I guess something less than stellar must’ve happened in 2012 …..

    • Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 7:45 pm

      Well in 2012 he came down with the Panda flu. Or, as Verlander nicked named it, Wow.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 7:56 pm

        Yeah, will always remember that “wow” after Pablo’s 2nd blast…. sweet.

  29. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:00 pm

    Bye bye….

  30. xoot said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:02 pm

    If yelich snaps out of his mini slump those bums should go down in five

  31. blade3colorado said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:20 pm

    Fox broadcast team is pathetic . . . “Dodgers can come back soooooo fast, blah, blah, blah.”

  32. Macdog said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:28 pm

    STFU Turner.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:31 pm

      Now that’s one Dodger I do *hate*.

  33. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:33 pm

    Come on.

  34. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:34 pm

    Gettin’ dicey….

  35. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:36 pm

    Funny, they are down 6-1 but they show Dodger highlights coming off the break.

  36. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:37 pm

    Wow. That was a fatty pitch. Same thing only lower.

  37. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:38 pm

    Drill Machado in the ribs, give up the run but take him out of the series.

  38. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:39 pm

    Wow. Way to lollygag that, Ryan. He hung 3 pitches that AB.

  39. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:39 pm

    Should have hit him.

  40. xoot said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:40 pm

    Strange game. Yelich better roar back

  41. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:40 pm

    Shit, pull Jeffers. WTF.

  42. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    Jesus. jeffers is way too fat with these pitches.

  43. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:43 pm

    Got him.

  44. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:43 pm

    There you go.

  45. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:46 pm

    Puig Will always suck as a clutch” big stage” player!

    Jesus. That was 10″ low.

  48. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:52 pm

    Eat that one, Turner. Fucking inbred hillbilly dipshit.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:53 pm

    • Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 8:54 pm

  51. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:01 pm

    He’s out. Least they were quick about it.

  52. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:03 pm

    Wow. That was some cheese.

  53. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:06 pm

    Buck just wants me to puke.

  54. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:09 pm

    Jeeeeeesus.

  55. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    In and out dammit.

  56. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    Turner again. This is either going to be so sweet or so terrible….

  57. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    Outside.

  58. Bozo said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    Fuck yeah! And yeah I blew it, Grandal was the one that went off for the Brewers tonight.

  59. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    Yeah, baby!!!

  60. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:14 pm

    I’ll take “sweet”.

  61. blade3colorado said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:14 pm

    Close, but no cigar Bums . . . Just like your quest for a Trophy.

  62. unca_chuck said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:14 pm

    Flav’s 7:22 should be the POTD. That is nuts.

  63. alleykat69 said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:15 pm

    4 K’s for banjo boy. . . HAH!!!

  67. mrsprtdude said, on October 12, 2018 at 9:58 pm

    Nice win for the Brew Crew. They did blow through the bullpen. It worked (especially the homer) but taking Gio out after only 2 innings not smart. If it goes 7 are we going to see those guys in every game? Why not at least let starter get in a bit of trouble before you pull him???

  68. gianthead said, on October 12, 2018 at 10:01 pm

    Wow…was out with the boss who is a huge Fodger fan and we turned the game off 5-1…I did not expect that comeback…..makes me related nervous but got the first game. Game 2 is huge…why did they start Gio Gonzalez??? Never saw an explanation…

  69. unca_chuck said, on October 13, 2018 at 7:53 am

    He’s a lefty.
