MLB’s NIT: A look ahead


Highway 161 game chat


  1. KT

    Go New BLUE Dodgers!!!! Road warriors….Playoff bound

  2. btimmer

    Tomorrow’s Cardinals-Cubs game has been moved up 3 hours to avoid rain. It would have started at 4:15 PT, but will now start at 1:15 PT.
    It’s clear that MLB does not want any rainouts or doubleheaders this weekend unless it’s absolutely necessary.

  3. btimmer

    Braves win 1-0. Cardinals up 6-0. So the Braves will be home for at least the NLDS. And if the Cardinals win, they will clinch the Central and an NLDS home field too.

    • KT

      Barves already had home field for the NLDS before the game it is just a matter of HF for the whole playoffs for them. They clinched HF with our loss last night

      • btimmer

        And so they did. Bucs won 4-1, so they need one more win to get homefield on Tuesday.

  4. KT

    Beautiful pitch Clayton

  5. KT

    Gonzo missed his 100 rbi

  6. AGon scored from first? Yep that’s an error.

  7. John_from_Aus

    Nice start!

  8. KT

    Los Angeles Dodgers ✔ @Dodgers
    Juan Uribe flashes jazz hands driving in two with a double. #Dodgers lead 2-0.

  9. Youngsters at home, do not pay attention to these outfielders.

  10. KT

    Should have batted him ninth

  11. KT

    Picked off!!

  12. KT

    Los Angeles Dodgers ‏@Dodgers3m
    The #Dodgers plated 4 runs in the 1st and this Juan Uribe double started it all. Take a look:

  13. KT

    Gonzo 100 rbi’s

  14. KT

    Juanito speed

  15. KT

    Well it’s official now games one and two of the NLDS are on the road

  16. KT

    another beautiful strike out

  17. KT

    Braves go 1-1, Cards go either 0-2 or 1-1, Dodgers go to St. Louis

  18. ASW1

    Regardless of what Mattingly says, I’m sure glad Dodgers scoring runs tonight – sure, in essence, what Donny said is true, but I still would rather the Dodgers go into the postseason on a winning streak.

  19. KT

    Los Angeles Dodgers ‏@Dodgers3m
    Watch @AdrianTItan23 send RBI No. 100 into the stands:

  20. Good to see Carl doing that again!

  21. ASW1

    Carl looking great at the plate lately, a very good thing considering Puig’s drop off.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Nice to see CC upping his game, and like you say, Puig has dropped off. Of course this was bound to happen, but one has to like the underlying numbers. Despite having a babip of .218 over the past month, he has managed to produce an OPS+ of 126 based on getting on base and hitting with power.

  22. ASW1

    I love watching Kershaw pitch

  23. KT

    Sick Pitch

  24. KT

    Juanito 3-3

  25. This is the kind of game you need going into the playoffs!

  26. RBI

    Kershaw was magnificent.

  27. KT

    Los Angeles Dodgers ‏@Dodgers1m
    Clayton Kershaw joins Sandy Koufax as the only Los Angeles #Dodgers pitchers to post a sub-2.00 ERA.

  28. KT

    MLB ‏@MLB
    .@ClaytonKersh22’s regular season has come to an end. The insane numbers: 236 IP, 164 H, 232 Ks, 1.83 ERA, 0.92 WHIP. #AceStatus

  29. RBI

    Butera sighting…as a catcher.

  30. RBI

    Butera, with a hit!

  31. RBI

    Completely and unabashedly off topic, I saw Carmen last night, with a fiery
    Irish redhead playing the temptress. It was really great!

    • Jack Dawkins

      I was there opening night. good show. Thought the Mezzo as Carmen was luke warm, but got stronger as night went on. Same with the tenor. The flower song he spun a beautiful falsetto, but his best singing was in act iv, as was carmens. The young soprano doing Micaela was a discovery, she has a birght future. The baritone sounded like he was in a distant room. He wont make you forget Lawrence tibbett, the best singer ever born in california.
      My apologies…..I have a lifetime of opera addiction.

      • WBBsAs

        The only thing you would need to apologize for is soccer…or being a Gnatfan.

      • RBI

        Wow, that was fantastic! Thank you. (Next up for me, “Falstaff.”)

  32. RBI

    Matty is running well, thank goodness.

  33. scooplew

    Just got home after watching “The Butler,” which my wife and I really liked, followed by dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and I see we are ahead 11-0. Delighted.

  34. KT

    Brian Kenny @MrBrianKenny

    Koufax had 5 great years. Kershaw has had 3 already on that level. ERA+ 167 to 165 (Kershaw). Rare air.

    • scooplew

      Koufax also had a fine 1961 season. 18-13. ERA 3.52, ERA +122, and league leader in strikeouts (269 in 255.2 IP), H/9 ratio, SO/9 ratio and SO/BB ratio.

  35. KT

    Ball Game!!!!

    We will be starting on the road people with game 3 at DS with Ryu starting October 6th

  36. ASW1

    Well, I went and saw “Prisoners” with the wife the other day, and then had a great lunch afterwards….

    • scooplew

      Yes, but you didn’t come home to find the Dodgers ahead 11-0.

      • ASW1

        Haha! – yes, you got me there – it was Wed. – Dodgers lost to Gnats later that night.

  37. RBI

    Ball game!

  38. KT

    From MSTI: NeDieterich 3 minutes ago

  39. ASW1

    Love this game – time to stomp the foot back on the pedal.

  40. ASW1

    Watson had to remind me – Pedro Martinez – 1.74 ERA in 2000 – Delino Deshields!!!!

  41. scooplew

    This is our largest margin of victory this season. It’s the seventh time we’ve scored in double figures. The first time was on July 3. It is also our 22nd shutout.

  44. KT

    Night All…great tuneup game by Kershaw…going to see Uribe and CC doing well in the playoffs

  45. foul tip

    Marmol actually threw an inning without walking anybody. How can it be?

    And Cappy seems to have done well in his IP, not that he’s likely to see postseason.

  46. ASW1

    Cincy’s Arroyo gives up 5 dingers, can’t get out of the 5th – Bucs up 6-3.

  47. ASW1

    Gnats give Pence $90 mil / 5-yr deal.

  48. ASW1

    Rays looking to get bumped out of the WC : down 3-1 to Blue Jays in the 5th while Rangers beating Angels again 7-4 in the 8th. Coming down to the wire in the Junior Circuit.
