Opening Day at Blue Heaven on Earth.

[attachment=5549:open.jpg]


No better way to start the year than for Clayton Kershaw to dominate the Hated Ones featuring a Kershaw Home Run to break a scoreless tie in the bottom of the 8th and lead the Dodgers to victory.

What a sweet victory. First series In the books, and it goes to the World Champion San Francisco Giants. I don't see whats special about the Fodgers. This just proves that money cannot buy team chemistry.

GO GIANTS!!!

Fireworks tonight in San Diego.
Matt Kemp gets a purpose pitch early in the game with an 0-2 count with a pitch over his head. Kemp takes it like a man and gets back in the box.
The Dodgers do not retaliate.
Later in a tough 2-1 game on a 3-2 count Carlos Quentin takes a pitch off his forearm and promptly charges the mound and breaks Zach Grenke's collar bone.
This is the same Quentin who lead the league in getting beaned the last two years.

fuging San Diego, consisting of castoffs and Double A scum and this idiot takes our #2 pitcher out.
These douche bags come to Dodger Stadium Monday Night.
Someone is getting drilled in the ear.

Oh yeah, Dodgers win and now sit at 6-3.
Go Blue!

Yeah Quentin was way out of line. Like you said, he gets beamed all the time, like 16 times last year in 80 games? Why does he act surprised? It would make NO sense for Grenkie to put a runner on base at that time. I'm with the lot that thinks Carlos should be suspended till Grenkie gets back, it only seems fair. I mean, if not, why not just put a scrub out there to take a hit and run to the mound of take out any pitcher?

I hope Carlos Quentin gets hit by a bus. WTF! Someone teach Greinke how to do a leg sweep.

fuging Mattingly.
Kershaw is in the middle of a tough 1-0 ballgame the Dodgers trail in the 8th.
After dominating and striking out 9 Clayton gets in trouble bases loaded and one out.
What does Don do?
Pulls Clayton and brings in a scrub called up today to replace the injured Greinke.
Promptly two walks are given, score moves form 1-0 to 3-0 DBacks.
Clayton earned one more batter you @hole.

Dodgers/Padres get together tonight for the first time since the Quentin ordeal. Ol Carlos is serving an 8 game suspension, far too short of course.
Maybe they'll cool it tonight in respect for Jackie Robinson Night at the Stadium this evening.
Go Dodgers, go 42!

Dear god the start of this season has been horrible to say the least. Please trade Andre Ethier for a starting pitcher and bring up Yusiel Puig.

It's been suckin' for sure.
Billingsley is having Tommy John surgery tomorrow. Maybe Ted Lilly can step in and perform.
Hanley Ramirez still out after the injury during the retarded World baseball Classic.

Dodgers showed no sack after the Grienke ordeal. Padres came to town 3 days later and swept the Dodgers and hit another batter. No retaliation from the Dodgers.
Bullshyt, back up your team mates ffs.

They're pounding the Mets tonight but Matt Kemp still hasn't found his stroke, nor has this group of players formed as a team imho.

Kemp has multi hit games in 3 of 4 now, with two 3 hits games. Billingsley in my opinion isnt a huge loss, when have we ever relied on him? He is so inconsistent and health has always been an issue. Trading Harang for nearly nothing really hurts now. Hanley is saying he should be back quite a bit earlier than the original mid May timetable so hopefully he's back in two weeks. Greinke deal was very frustrating, still get mad thinking about it. You are right they really need Lilly to pitch well.

I love that they finally found a leadoff hitter in Crawford. And i think Ryu could have a pretty promising career once he masters his curve ball and gets used to pitching in America.
