We sweep those sorry sons of bitches.
Sweep. Lilly and Beckett get their first Win and Beckett doesn't give up a HR!!
And Hanley might be in the lineup this series. I think I'm at half chub right now :banjo:
^lol at the banjo sig
Some brutal pitching matchups for both sides lol. Tulo/CarGo will take Lilly so deep. 1/3 IMO.
Vin must be shitting his pants with excitement that his old buddy CarGo is gonna be here.
Let's fuck shit up!
Gotta cut the lead of the first place team.
I pick 2/3 'cause we need to win the series, but sweeping them puts us .5 games up, and we need some morale around this place.
Is anyone confident as fuck we win this series?
I'm confident as mother fuck! Fuck those cock loving rockies!! :moshpit:
I like this guy.
Tulo hurt his shoulder in a slide. I don't like seeing any player that I have an ounce of respect for injured like Tulo, but that could be huge for us if he misses this series.
We be sweeping.
Not only did Doyer and I patch things up, but when I woke up from an afternoon nap and walked out to the yard, I was amazed...
Careful Nirv, he might be having some other ideas...
Oh yeah, and we'll sweep this one...
Yeah. I kinda had a deja vu with this turd at SS in the last series for the Brewers. Vinny sure makes a point to let you know when he loves a player.
At least it wasn't a Pablo Sandoval, one of Vin's all-time uber adorationfest forays, but Cargo is close. Cargo is Vizquel-like in Vin's world.
I've concluded that Crawford's attitude doesn't matter, as long as he hits two HRs per game.
Dodgers look to Lilly to carry team over .500 vs. Rockies
Colorado aims to move on from rough Arizona series behind Chatwood

Both Ted Lilly and Tyler Chatwood were California-born and California-raised. Both were drafted by -- and have pitched for -- California teams.
Both will make their 2013 home-state debut when they oppose each other at Dodger Stadium on Monday.
Chatwood, born in Fontana, Calif., attended high school in nearby Redlands before the Angels selected him in the second round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft. He debuted with the Angels in 2011, when he posted a 6-11 record and 4.75 ERA in 27 games (25 starts). That November, his hometown team traded him to Colorado for catcher Chris Iannetta.
Chatwood pitched in 19 contests for the Rockies last season, and allowed four runs in six innings in his first start of the 2013 campaign.
"His stuff is really good," said Rockies manager Walt Weiss. "He's got plus-stuff. I love the way he competes. I expect he'll get out there [Monday] and give us a chance to win a game."
Lilly, born just outside of Los Angeles in Lomita, Calif., attended high school in Oakhurst before attending Fresno City College. The Dodgers chose him in the 23rd round of the 1996 Draft. He didn't pitch for the franchise until 2010, however, as the Dodgers traded him to Montreal in 1998.
Lilly returned from the disabled list to make a start last Wednesday, his first outing since May because of shoulder surgery. The southpaw limited the Mets to one run in five innings. The Dodgers could benefit from Lilly staying healthy and performing well, as the club has already used nine different starting pitchers.
"I was definitely under the impression I had to prove myself at this level, and understandably, coming off shoulder surgery, prove to myself, too," Lilly said. "I didn't give up on myself, but I needed to prove to myself I can continue to be here."
Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who has been on a rehab assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga, could return from thumb surgery as soon as this week, possibly even during the series with Colorado.
The Dodgers claimed the season series with the Rockies last year, 10-8, though they outscored Colorado by only one run, 84-83.
Lilly has owned the Rockies throughout his career, compiling a 10-2 record and 3.92 ERA across 14 starts against Colorado. He has won six straight decisions against them and is 4-0 with a 2.15 ERA in four career starts against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium.
