Cardinals @ Dodgers September 15, 2012: Garcia vs Blanton

I was really tempted to make a game thread with the wedding venue as the photo and the lineup being ‘bride’ & ‘groom’ sides, but upon further review, that would be incredibly lame.

Than again, so are the Dodgers right now, so maybe that’s what I should have done. Enjoy the game, I guess.

Actually, I want Kershaw shut down for the season. Let him rest. Now I will be fascinated to see if this scrub rotation of 5th starters can actually make some noise. WIll make for an interesting story if nothing else

Watching Rivera's hit last night, maybe it was for the best that Descalso knocked it down.  The cf was charging in and might have had a play at the plate, who knows.  Anyway, we deserve this kind of luck, for the rest of the year.

Wow. Just saw the replay of Kemp's throw to nail Molina out. Man that really coulda been horrible if he didnt get him. Pulled an Eric Byrnes flipping throw. I loved that Ethier was smiling and impressed but Matty was just fired up. I feel for Kemp. he knows we all look to him to carry the team and he's not answering. I am sure that just eats at him

 @EephusBlue Beckett your #1 Starter...at least i would start him on game 1 of a series.... I think that "match your ace up vs their ace." and "this pitching staff vs that pitching staff." holds too much weight... in the postseason anything can happen... big power guys and gritty role players seem to almost always be the story of the series...

".......coming out of nowhere and pitching well beyond his ability, young Stephen Fife put on the performance of a lifetime, pitching an 8 inning shut out in game 7 leading LA to its first world series victory in over 20 years..........."

 @Ken Griffey's Grotesequely Swollen Jaw this is the point of the statement. it is all meaningless and out of our control. i prefer to write it as a typo prone friend once did. since then, this has become a mantra of sorts. 

 

It is what ot os.

 @el serracho i dunno about that. The typical hand wringing that accompanies Ned and contracts argues against that
