Wow--I knew it was bad from all the screaming about it, but I had no idea Yost was *this* bad:

I suspect CK will be a tad more cautious pitching to Bourjos this time around.  Fool me once. . .

@BluESQ  For the Giants to lose, that is.

@BluESQ  Root for the Giants because losing to Volquez is inherently humiliating, even with the Pirates behind him.

If Volquez manages to beat the Giants tonight, you may never hear from me again--it may constitute a fatal schadenfreude moment for me.  It would be a good death.  :-)

@Tymathee @MScottEiland  True--though the most egregious one all year was against the Nationals just recently.  In extra innings.  It would be utterly humiliating if he blew a game that way in front of a playoff audience.

@Mike Petriello  No more Big Donkey?  The MLB world is a sadder and smaller place today--but it will be warmer due to the lack of Dunn striking out constantly and providing a cooling breeze.  :-(

So--is anyone else terrified that the Royals bunted in stupid situations last night and ended up winning anyway?  They might as well have put up a glowing sign in front of Mattingly saying "Your way of life has been vindicated--MOAR BUNTS!!!"

@Disgruntled Goat  I'm ambivalent--I want the Giants to suffer, of course, but the Pirates are dangerous and the Dodgers have proven they can spank the Giants as they're currently constituted.

@Tymathee  Next year he'll start throwing 11 K Madduxs every third start.  Cueto and Wainwright will start breaking into sobs every time his name is mentioned.

@P_F_P  Played starting at a quarter to four.  Unless Jeter joins the Dodgers, I'd set the overs and unders line for total runs at 2--and betting unders on that line wouldn't be a sucker bet.

Maybe the Dodgers should all go up to the plate wearing "2."  Experience suggests that they'll get batting practice fastballs from Wainwright if they do.  :-P

Videos we need to see:  Yasiel Puig practicing dropping perfect bunts halfway down the first base line.  Just in time for the Cardinals to come to town.

When the Dodgers actually hire someone who is remotely as good as Vin "heading boldly into his sixty-sixth year in the booth" Scully, then we can start talking about the post-Vin Scully era.  I fully expect to be driving my flying car and watching Kate Upton's grandchildren on reality TV when that era begins.  :-P

@Turner_for_Treasury Well, yeah--how could CK possibly be in the CY conversation when he couldn't even lead the NL in Ks spotting Cueto and Strasburg seven starts?*

Well, someone is going to have to take the strikeout leg of the pitching triple crown from CK.  Won't be too challenging in a decent start, but Cueto or Strasburg *will* have to get it done.

@ak825 @P_F_P  Tommy being Tommy is the one thing that makes having lost Pedro Martinez for Delino F***ing DeShields somewhat tolerable--because if he had stayed on the Dodgers Tommy probably would have blown Pedro's arm out the way he did Ramon's.  Not to mention Fernando's.

OK, no one's going to goad CK into doing something stupid today that will get him thrown out early and screw up finishing off the Giants and capping off his MVP argument, right?

@Lobo Bochy's just mad that the only reason the idiots scored any runs at all is that Bumgarner couldn't lay down a bunt.  Moron.

Having Darwin Barney hit for Greinke is the very definition of a mortal insult.  Even granting that there was no way he was going out for the ninth.

@Turner_for_Treasury The Dodgers still have a theoretical shot at best record in the league--which would mean playing a wild card team that had to burn their ace rather than the now white hot Cardinals--meaning that losing games because f***ing Correia f***ing sucks sour yak milk is worth complaining loudly about.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Matt Kemp's Bath Towel @MScottEiland True--Bob Brenly should have been fired mid-World Series in 2001 IMO for his epic incompetence in using Byung-hyun Kim, but his team saved his job with their heroics.  He was still an incompetent idiot.

Haren looking strong again is far more important than the result of this one game, as infuriating as KC's epic, continued suckitude is.

Stop me if you've heard this before, but if Kevin Correia makes it onto the Dodger postseason roster, people need to be fired.  People named Ned and Don.
