Dodgers Game Thread 9/22/12

The Dodgers’ win last night kept the Reds from clinching the NL Central, but the successor to the Big Red Machine gets another chance today. Any combination of a Reds win or a Cardinals loss gives the Queen City its second division title in three years after fifteen years without one.

Young Mr. Fife takes his 2.49 ERA up against the likes of Votto and Phillips as well as two Old Friends today: Messrs. Paul and Navarro are in the lineup for the Reds. The game is on Big Fox TV.

Lineup:

Ellis, M, 2B
Ethier, A, RF
Kemp, M, CF
Gonzalez, A, 1B
Ramirez, H, SS
Cruz, L, 3B
Rivera, J, LF
Ellis, A, C
Fife, S, P

Gameday

If you need something to divert you before the Dodgers game, it’s OSU at UCLA at the Rose Bowl this afternoon.

    I’m here 🙂 like the picture by the way

    espn reports Kershaw may pitch Sunday

  • WinnipegDave

    Thanks Link for setting this up. I still feel the great loss of Dodger Thoughts, but am glad to be part of this community. I agree with John – the pic gives a dignified feel to the page.

  • WinnipegDave

    As much as I love Kershaw, if I’m the Dodgers I don’t think it is worth the risk in letting him into a game at this point in the season.

  • WinnipegDave

    Big run there for the Reds.

    Same font and feel to this site, but – ooh new comments above the old ones – wild stuff.

    Back in action. Now the Dodgers need to get it going!

  • LADodgersFan88

    Paco!

  • John_from_Aus

    got to go will check the result later, Link, get out the fishing line to reel everyone else back in (to join us here)

  • I’m trying, John, I’m trying!

    • John_from_Aus

      maybe another detailed post at the end of the open thread on DT may do it (I’ve already ‘Favourited’ your site)

  • LADodgersFan88

    Same old, same old.

    • John_from_Aus

      you mean our lack of run scoring

      • LADodgersFan88

        Yup. Good pitching, no support.

  • WinnipegDave

    I guess we aren’t too hopeful for a 4 or 5 run explosion over the next few innings.

  • Jibin Park

    Matt Guerrier is not very good.

  • WinnipegDave

    I know the Dodgers are running out of games, and that the Cards already won today. Despite this, I would be happy to take 2 out of 3 against the Reds and then take our chances making up games against non-90 win teams.

  • WinnipegDave

    Crazy game A’s vs Yankees. Both have scored 4 runs in the 13th inning. On to the 14th they go.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Good job, LM! Seems like old times . . . including the lack of Dodger bats, unfortunately.

  • LADodgersFan88

    The pitchers are sticking it to the hitters now. Take that!
