^ Imagine if we had the DH how much even funner we'd be?

 

Would you guys consider pitching Kershaw tomorrow and closing this out?

ehh thats risky. Would like to only use him if there was a game 5.

Howell should be the lefty specialist going forward. He was awesome tonight.

 

Also, Capuano was great tonight. Stabilized this game

Kershaw could start tomorrow:

 

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers are still considering starting ace Clayton Kershaw on short rest in Monday's Game 4 of the National League Divisional Series, three team sources told ESPNLosAngeles.com late Sunday night. 
 
No decision has been made yet, the sources stressed. But manager Don Mattingly's postgame comments on the issue were noticeably vague. 
 
Asked whether winning Game 3 had put to rest the debate on whether to start Kershaw on short rest in Game 4, Mattingly cryptically said, "I'd like to be able to close us out tomorrow. I didn't know there was any debate, really. Lot of questions, right? You never know what happens. Twists and turns of this game." 
 
Ricky Nolasco is officially scheduled to start Game 4. It was assumed Kershaw would only come back on short rest for Game 4 if the Dodgers were facing elimination. But the Dodgers were still assessing the situation as of late Sunday night, sources said. 
 
If Kershaw were to go on short rest, the Dodgers would still have Zack Greinke available on regular rest for a Game 5 Wednesday in Atlanta. 
 
The National League Championship Series isn't scheduled to begin until Friday, Oct. 11.

 

I think with Freddy Garcia going for the Braves, we are in a good spot to use Nolasco.  If he falters, then at least we have Kershaw for game 5.   
 
I think we close it out tomorrow.  The NLCS would start Friday so the wise choice is to go with Nolasco so we don't burn Kershaw.  If we finish it in game 4, we would have Kershaw and Grienke for game 1 and 2 at home versus the Pirates (if they finish it tomorrow as well).

And man was Chavez Ravine poppin' tonight! Loudest I've ever heard Dodger Stadium.

 

LOVED doing the Tomahawk Chop tonight.  For the first two innings, Braves fans there were constantly doing this and being dicks about it, so when things went south for the Braves, we turned the tables.  Braves fans were gone before the 7th inning.

Just got back from the game had a [expletive]ing sick time! Loved the chop too hahaha! Was a little nervous the first inning was dead silent but once Crawford hit the 3 run homer the crowd went and stayed crazy! Where were you sitting west coast? I was in the left field reserve near the foul ball pole.

I think they should start Ricky. I think the Dodgers don't need Kershaw to beat Freddy Garcia unless Ricky implodes.

Yeah it will be interesting to see. Another reason we are debating to start Kershaw is because the Braves could always turn away from Garcia and give the ball to Kris Medlen.

Huge blowout win last night. Awesome

 

Not sure about Kershaw starting on 3 days rest when he just came off pitching 125 pitches last Thursday. But then again Kershaw at 80% is still better than 99% of the pitchers in the League Lol

I was in right field haha. My buddy and his girl were in left field.

Bart Scott to see Kershaw tonight! :rock:

Which sadly is very possible as he's tailed off dramatically in several of his starts going down the end of the season.

I'm confident with Kershaw. Him on three days rest is still probably better than Ricky on full

This is either going to work out well for us or blow up in our face. I don't see us winning in ATL if they were to beat Kershaw tonight.

I wanted Ricky to go tonight, I don't like the idea of starting Kershaw off 3 days. When's the last time Nolasco pitched anyway?
