Game 1

Philadelphia at LA Dodgers

The Phillies and the Dodgers meet in a rematch of the 2008 NLCS. Last year's NLCS MVP takes the hill against Clayton Kershaw. This will be 5th time these teams have met in the postseason (2-2) and the Phillies have won 7 of the last nine playoff games between the 2. Cole Hamels is 4-0, 1.64 ERA career against the Dodgers. Kershaw is the third youngest pitcher to ever start in a postseason game but is 0-2 this year against the Phils with an ERA over 5. Starting lineups after the jump.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Victorino and Martin are going to throw punches this series.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'd love to see Victo's "not at my head" dance

    ReplyDelete
  12. He's been nasty except for the two warning track shots.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Offense needs to wake up this inning.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gotta score Raul from 2nd with no outs

    ReplyDelete
  19. we need a few more before the dodgers relief corps come out

    ReplyDelete
  20. Rollins has to do a better job there

    ReplyDelete
  21. At the commercial - check out the video that was just posted. Pretty bad

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    Need to shut them down Hamels

    ReplyDelete
  26. That hurts with Manny coming up. 2 on, 2out, up 3

    ReplyDelete
  27. Why did i know that was coming?

    ReplyDelete
  28. 5-4 - i meant there was only 1 on - above

    ReplyDelete
  29. That little bullshit expression that Hamels made to Utley and Rollins after the error was bullshit!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yeah I noticed that too.

    Second straight game that the best double play combo in baseball made a costly error.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Was that play ruled a FC and an error? I'm trying to figure out why Cole has 4 ER. Im guessing thats the case

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fantasy baseball is over. Hamels ERA doesn't matter to you anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh yeah i won the championship, thats right

    ReplyDelete
  34. 5.1 is not good enough Hamels

    ReplyDelete
  35. Chalie loves starters out of the pen

    ReplyDelete
  36. Happ is pitching game 4 right? Gotta get Thome out here

    ReplyDelete
  37. They would not have let us wait for a pinch runner to get his shoes on.

    That's bullshit!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think Rollins only hits have been in the ninth inning - this postseason

    ReplyDelete
  39. Eithier, Manny, Kemp - need to survive this inning.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Didn't realize that Manny stared in the Phillies dugout after the homer.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Good to have Ho back. Big time Pitching right there

    ReplyDelete
  42. love that they went right at Manny - all fastballs

    ReplyDelete
  43. Here we go - need to manufacture some here

    ReplyDelete
  44. Will they keep Ho in?

    Are they really doing the wave? I hate LA!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Listening to these announcers, you would think the Dodgers were the '27 Yankees and they were winning by 10 runs.

    ReplyDelete
  46. What is going on with Madson?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I thought they would bring in Eyre against Either but i guess because he is 1-11

    ReplyDelete
  48. ok and they just said he is 3-6 with a homer against Eyre

    ReplyDelete
  49. Can they bring Ho back in? Oh thats not allowed...

    ReplyDelete
  50. Look at the empty seats behind home plate. That is embarassing

    ReplyDelete
  51. yeah - don't know which is worse - the empty seats or the people with their feet up.

    ReplyDelete
  52. RT @ Jasonst "OK, I know ur wondering. Last time Brad Lidge saved 3 straight games: 4 months ago. He saved 4 in a row May 28-June 1 vs the Nats and Padres "

    ReplyDelete
  53. RT@ ToddZolecki Here comes Brad Lidge. His numbers against: Kemp (1-3, triple), Blake (2-3, RBI, K) and Loney (2-3, walk).

    ReplyDelete
  54. Casey Blake! Didn't he ground into 20 DPs last year too??

    ReplyDelete
  55. They are pumping in crowd noise like they do at sixers games

    ReplyDelete
  56. Pedro v Padilla tomorrow. If im not at a bar - we'll do this again.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Darren Daulton is on Phillies Postgame Live. This is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yeah he was on pre-game too. Bark and Bo had to save him a couple of time because Dutch lost his train of thought. He is on a different planet
