Game 3 Thread: April 2 vs. Giants, 7.10p

An earlier comment from SoSG Sax:

maybe we can post by typing our pieces up in microsoft word, photographing it, and then just posting the picture.

UPDATE: Kuo gets the start due to rain. Merkin Valdez starting for the Giants.

Nice job Orel.

DaveG said...

What were the spelling suggestions for Linecum?

Orel said...

Lyceum
Lineup
Lyceums

Steve Sax said...

Sounds like a future post idea...thanks DaveG!

Orel said...

Lyceum
Lineup
Lyceums
Go Blue

I was really surprised by that last one.

Orel said...

Now that's a lincecum! I mean lineup!

Eric Karros said...

Yes, nice job Orel. That's sort of like translating something from English into a foreign language via an automatic translator, then back to English.

Eric Karros said...

And in case you were wondering, this is what happens when you actually do that (courtesy of babelfish and the Greek language):

"Could this be a forecast of cast matchup for a long time? Dodgers, that has been gained already this line, hope of making better adversely in Lincecum from they made yesterday adversely in subdue Cain. Up to now the this year's team has made a good work be occupied in the numeration of bitumens of opposition and reaching in soft underbelly the giants."

Orel said...

I have to admit, that's better than my original version. Can't beat "bitumens."

Orel said...

Threat of rain has changed Lincecum vs. Bills to Valdez vs. Kuo.

Steve Sax said...

I actually had a puzzle like that once in a Stanford Game, translating song lyrics until they were almost indescribable. Good times.

Steve Sax said...

I tried to change the GT via blackberry, sorry it is ugly

Orel said...

Kuo escapes a tough first inning. He still needs to work more efficiently.

Orel said...

GT looks good to me.

Orel said...

Merkin Valdez is Cy Young, apparently.

Orel said...

K's the side!

Orel said...

Wow, E-Furcal on a possible DP ball!

Steve Sax said...

I don't have tv tonight--is it raining there yet?

Orel said...

What is wrong with DT tonight?

Orel said...

Rain just started.

Orel said...

Kuo flashes some heat!

Orel said...

0-0 after 2.

Orel said...

We're already into the Giants' bullpen. Their pitching dominance cannot continue, whether by us hitting or the rain coming.

Orel said...

Giants threatening with men on 1st & 3rd with no out. C'mon, rain!

Orel said...

Troncoso bringing it! K's two with men on 2nd & 3rd.

Orel said...

Lincecum sighting!

Delino DeShields said...

the deshields are at the game....bestposting on scoreboard - 'the giants 7th best prospect' WOW. giants put that dh to good use

Orel said...

Ethier can't keep up with Lincecum. A curveball down the middle should finish him off.

Orel said...

Over-under for the DeShields tonight: 6 innings.

Orel said...

DeShieldses?

Orel said...

Andruw legs it out! Dodgers have men on 1st & 3rd, 2 out.

Orel said...

LONEY with the RBI!

Alex Cora said...

Think we can get the win before the rain cancels the game?

Orel said...

I wonder if the rain helped knock that down.

Delino DeShields said...

great chant of giants suck. inflated condom on the field. mrs deshields needs food, but not allowed to eat hot dogs.. trying to sneak down to lower seats

Orel said...

It's raining but not pouring. I think they'll try to play more or maybe try to wait it out.

Orel said...

Not allowed to eat hot dogs? That's inhuman!

Orel said...

Uh-oh, Giants rallying. 1st & 3rd, 1 out.

Delino DeShields said...

mission accomplished. mrs deshields got her pregnancy-safe pizza. somehow we snuck down two levels to behind home plate seats. only casualty... I missed loney rbi

Delino DeShields said...

Alex Cora said...

Man, with the rain, I be Mrs. Deshields is out by the 7th inning stretch.

Alex Cora said...

NOW, it is pouring (at least it looks that way on TV).

Orel said...

And Ethier botches the fly ball. 1-1 tie.

Orel said...

Here we go....

Orel said...

Rain delay is official.

Alex Cora said...

Rain delay + work at 5 am = Good Night!

Orel said...

Lakers 71, Trailblazers 63

Steve Sax said...

Someone explain to me why Torre benches Billz due to rain, and Bochy counters by benching Lincecum due to rain, and then Bochy ends up going to Lincecum in relief, and then Torre goes to Billz in relief? And then there's a rain delay anyway. So if each manager was saving his starter, why pitch him in relief anyway?

Delino DeShields said...

it was too good to lastt. covered loge seats behind home plate. pizza. then five mintes later it rains. not wanting to put mrs delino through that, I pulled the plug. we are now at mystery beer night at good on sunset

Orel said...

I'm not sure, but with less than an inning pitched for Bills and an off-day tomorrow, I guess Torre figured he might as well get some work in.

Orel said...

Wow, the wife agreed to go to a bar?

Orel said...

And we're back!

Orel said...

Andruw saves another run (or two) with his glove.

Orel said...

Lincecum back in. Nothing like an hour and 13 minutes between innings.

Orel said...

DeWitt legs out a single!

Orel said...

Lincecum K's Martin, DeWitt stranded at 3rd.

Sons of said...

Wow, we were lucky to get out of that inning giving up only one run. 2-1 Giants.

Steve Sax said...

Martin has been awful so far this year, 0-for-4 both of the first two games. Did he strain a bicep carrying all that hardware?

Steve Sax said...

Did Loaiza enter with men on, or create that jam himself?

Sons of said...

Andruw hits into a DP. Still 2-1 Giants.

Sons of said...

Loaiza created the jam himself.

Loney doubles to lead off the 7th!

Steve Sax said...

Stretch time everyone, bottom seven with the Dodgers down 2-1.

Orel said...

Lincecum K's Andruw. Men on 2nd & 3rd, 2 out.

Orel said...

I mean Sweeney. Makes more sense.

Orel said...

Bases juiced!

Orel said...

Backwards K on Martin. Wow.

Steve Sax said...

Now is the time for Martin to prove me wrong.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Russell, bad time for a K.

Steve Sax said...

Can someone please score a run for the Dodgers?

Orel said...

Andruw doubles! Loney up!

Orel said...

Loney IBB, Kemp up.

Orel said...

Nope. 5 LOB in the past 2 innings.

Delino DeShields said...

Where can I watch the end of this game? Ktla 5 is showing Friends, which is like the exact opposite of baseball in every way possible.

Delino DeShields said...

and my mlb.tv subscription is telling me it's a blackout. A-holes!

Steve Sax said...

The Dodgers have no clutch hitting tonight. Killer.

Orel said...

Channel 9, Delino!

Orel said...

Bottom of the 9th. I'm not hopeful. Especially since Juan Pierre is batting 2nd this inning.

Delino DeShields said...

but I really want to see south park as advertised. I'm calling them to complain.

Joyce DeWitt's up

Orel said...

That's hustle, DeWitt!

Orel said...

NICE BUNT PIERRE

Orel said...

NOT

Orel said...

Pierre has to steal a base here to atone for his crappy bunt.

Orel said...

Strike-em-out throw-em-out game-ending DP. How appropriate.

Orel said...

Good night, Sons!

Steve Sax said...

Okay, so if Juan Pierre can't advance a runner from first with no outs, and Pierre ends up at first, the least he could do is steal second sometime during Furcal's at bat. And he can't even do that.

Juan Pierre is an unmitigated disaster. It's not fair to blame him for tonight's loss, but that was a pathetic showing off the bench. Good night, Sons.

Delino DeShields said...

In one short inning, Juan Pierre did EVERYTHING he could to F this team.

Delino DeShields said...

Mrs. DeShields and I are safely out of the rain and traffic, relaxing in bed, with Dog DeShields asleep under the bed. Though I am bummed to have given up my stolen seats in the fifth, I don't envy those fans who stayed 90 minutes extra only to watch juan pierre screw it up. Good night you Princes of Garvey.
