This is the best team we've ever had.

Let the chips fall where they may.

Meanwhile I'm hosting a cub scout meeting.  I'll play catch up on the dvr as soon as it's done.

Wevtook too many fastballs from Kershaw. Kuechel made two bad pitches, and they hit both out.

Win tomorrow, and we are fine.

Chris Taylor was the difference.  He had three good at bats off Keuchel.  Homer, lineout, walk(that preceded Turner’s two run bomb)

The Dodgers bullpen outside of Jansen is hittable, too.  They are in a good groove right now, but the crap Smoltz was spewing about the game being over if the Dodgers are ahead after six innings is hogwash.

Hopefully after seeing Kershaw they'll have success against a lesser lefty.  I wonder if Hill will be tempted to use his fastball more after Kershaw's success with it, rather than relying as heavily on his curve as he usually does.

I swear HPU called it a strike because Altuve took off towards 1st.

I've never understood why hitters do this.  It's probably not affecting anything, but you're sure as hell not going to influence the call in your favor and there are some enormous egos in the umpiring fraternity.
