I don't care if he played 5 full sets of tennis this afternoon. Put him in.

Honestly, I'm surprised we didn't see an infielder pitching, so that the other guys could be ready for the charity game they play next week.

Ok this is just insane. “One for the Ages” doesn’t begin to describe it.

The important thing is Verlander will be well rested for Game 6.

Exactly.  because it's going to be a must win!

They act like Houston hasn't already dinged Jansen. Twice.

Damn, I was getting ready to start using my psychic powers for good.

No chance Dodgers don't score in the 10th.

Yes, I forgot Astros won Games 2 and 3. I misremembered, the travel day threw me.

I'm glad it didn't end on a home run. 

post #173 of 224
Historic.

And I love that after all the big plays, it's a solid goddamn single with a runner on 2nd that ends it.

ETA: What HB said.
post #174 of 224

Okay, I'm testing my powers now. Somebody check to see if a certain high-ranking sexual assault perpetrator's head explodes.

post #175 of 224

Oh, did the game end?  I was watching that guy throw the ball back over and over again.

Made Game 6 in '86 look like a split-squad affair in the Grapefruit League.

Or how about that WS game between the Phillies and Blue Jays in 93'. I believe the final score was similar to 13-12/

This game was so exciting I bet it had way more than half as many viewers as Steelers/Lions!

post #180 of 224

I was actually surprised to see just how good Jansen's numbers were this year. Every time I've seen him, he's always looked like one of those guys that throws really hard... and straight.

Quote:
An Astros fan who had a home run ball ripped out of her hands — and thrown back onto the field by another fan — said only one thing upset her.

 

“I would have like the opportunity to throw it back myself,” fan Sarah Head told Yahoo Sports.

 

Head, sporting an orange Astros cap, was holding Yasiel Puig’s ninth-inning home run in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night when a fan two seats to her right grabbed the ball from her hands and chucked it back onto the field. While the internet presumed he was just an angry, evil Astros fan, it turns out it was Head’s brother-in-law, Kirk, who didn’t offer much of a defense for why he stole the ball and tossed it back on the field.

 

“F—k the Dodgers,” he said.

 

Quote:
 

Head said she forgave Kirk and they hugged it out after the ball toss. But now, Kirk owes her something for stealing her ball.

 

“We talked about giving her my Nolan Ryan signed bat and ball,” Kirk said.

The day after, I'll just say:

 

Madison Bumgarner wouldn't have coughed up a three-run lead...

post #184 of 224

Kershaw certainly didn't help himself with all the talk of his shortcomings in the post-season. He couldn't hold a 4 run lead, then a 3 run lead. Granted Houston is one of the best offensive teams in the Majors, but he's talked about as one of the greatest pitchers of all time. 

 

There's rumblings here in L.A. that Kershaw's days with the Dodgers could be coming to an end. I'm not sure about his contract situation, but the speculation is that he may end up with one of the Texas teams, he's from the Dallas area, after all. 

 

As for tonight's game I want to see the Dodgers win if for nothing else, there's nothing like a Game 7 of the WS. I'm honestly torn, because I'd like to see Justin Verlander finally win a WS, on the other, Dave Roberts is an absolute class act, and the aforementioned Clayton Kershaw is also a great guy who does a ton of charitable work in the LA area, and overall a super-nice guy from all who have met him, so who the hell knows. 

post #185 of 224

Didn't help himself?

 

Clayton Kershaw's reputation is permanently fucking ruined.  PERMANENTLY.  He will never, ever, ever, ever, ever live down the utter fucking tank job he just served up in the defining game of his career.  The sun will swell into red giant immensity and swallow the Earth before this is forgotten.  I mean, maybe a few no hitters in the next World Series would do it, but that ain't likely. 

post #186 of 224

His early playoff struggles were mostly against the Cardinals. The Cardinals own the Dodgers especially in the playoffs-going back to the days of Ozzie Smith and Jack Clark- so Kershaw was almost doomed to suck against them. 

Last couple of playoff games, Kershaw wasn't that bad, I don't know his numbers off the top of my head, but this year and last year I know he was overall pretty good. 

 

I realize he may never live down his playoff struggles, he is after all referred to as: Clayton Manning/Peyton Kershaw, I get it. Still hard to root against the guy.

Nobody's rooting against him.  It's just reality that he will be "Clayton Chokeshaw" until the heat death of the universe.

Kershaw sees like a decent guy. For a Dodger.

 

But even without his previous history, blowing a game where your team gave you 7 runs while you were in would be a legacy moment. It's so "anti-clutch" that it makes me wonder if Kershaw and Jack Morris shook hands, would they both explode?

I believe that sort of interaction is the only power source speculated to be dense enough to power an Alcubierre drive.

Extra points for the Trekkie science.


I will say this game is starting better than last time. But we won last time, so I'm nervous.

Wow, this is intriguing here.

post #192 of 224
Why are you taking out Hill? You have stretched your bullpen to the limit already. Not a fan of the move.
post #193 of 224

Did Roberts not watch Morrow last night?

post #194 of 224

On the other side, a hit there could end your season. A rested bullpen for golf does you no good.

post #195 of 224
So much for that.
post #196 of 224
May tune in for game Seven.
post #197 of 224

I hope Darvish loses, but wouldn't mind if he struck out Gurriel every time he faced him.

post #198 of 224
Well this thing was certainly destined for a Game 7. Should be epic.

As an Astros fan, this series has taken years off my life. But man has it been fun.

I knew as soon as FOX showed that dopey Sports Illustrated cover from a few years ago that the Astros were toast last night.

 

I'll be pulling for them tonight but boy did my optimism evaporate after that Turner hit tied it up.
