Nats in 5.
Doyers in 4.
Dodgers in 1
#Nats announce Livan Hernandez will throw out the first pitch before Game 1, with Adam and Drake LaRoche for Game 2.
That's the correct choice. I'll take the Sandy Koufax team over any un-Palehosed squadron that had LaDouche and Adam Dunce in its uniform any day. On that note Happy New Year and may you be inscribed in the Book of Life.
Fuck the Laroche's.
Rooting for the dodgers now
Dodgers in 4
Nats down to their last 2 bullets.
Dodgers-Giants would be an awesome NLCS, in case the Giants are interested.
Rainout today. Game 2 tomorrow.
Dodgers threatening to blow it open in the 2nd and here comes the pitcher who is 0-12 on the season.
Lobaton hits in a DP with the bases loaded and then drops the ball applying a tag to get a runner at home.
Perhaps this level of strategy and gamesmanship is lost on you. Have you considered NFL football instead?
I think you're right. I mistook what is actually the elite batting prowess of Rich Hill for a retarded person playing whack-a-mole.
NL baseball is better!!!
Nats put up 4 in the 3rd and Maeda was pulled.
Carlos Ruiz emerges from under his rock to hit a 2 run homer and it's 4-3. Last Dodger postseason pinch hit homer was by Orlando Hudson in 2009, who would be acquired by KW in 2012 and pass away later that summer.
Kershaw leaves with the bases loaded up 5-2 and Baez immediately plunks the next batter.
5-3 Dodgers with 2 outs in the 7th.
and bases loaded
And Murphy ties it up.
dat murphy doe...
Someday the Dodgers can win a game 3 so Kershaw doesn't have to pitch game 4 on 3 days rest. Third straight year he's had to do it.
Also, that was a terrible call on Puig.
The last I had heard of Joe Blanton, it was from this after the Phillies ended up with Halladay, Lee, Oswalt, and Hamels 1-4 in their rotation for 2011:
Dusty leaves the righty in to face Ethier and Utley and now they're down 6-5.
Game 5 haps.
Sherzer on full rest vs. god knows who for LAD. Rich Hill looks like every CPA in the greater Atlanta area, so I don't buy him on 3 days rest.
So apparently, per Harold Reynolds, the NL game is superior because the pitcher struck out to end the 2nd and is now too tired to not walk the leadoff hitter. Strategy?
Werth thrown out by 20 feet rounding third.
...and then Pederson immediately ties it.
if you're a D-Backs fan.
Just awful baserunning. Was he sent or did he make the executive decision to test it like a twerp.
Edit: He was sent. Stupid
Joey Cora would've done the same.
"That's a big hit"
Reynolds is horrific. No fuck chance in hell that would've been a DP.
Dodgers with their first big hits in years in the playoffs.
Not sure they're the tougher team for the Cubs though.
Cubs on a collision course with the Dodgers..
Maybe SoCal will be less into sucking all the dicks than their NoCal brethren?
Well, they at least have a real closer.
Still 9 outs for the Nats though.
