Game 70 Thread: June 17 @ Reds, 4p

Chad Billingsley (4-7, 3.71) vs. Johnny Cueto (5-6, 5.42).

COMMENTS: Good: The Dodgers have won five of six from the Reds this season. Bad: The Dodgers have lost five straight coming in to today's game. Good: Billingsley is the closest thing we have to an ace; look beyond his W-L record because he's second in the majors with an amazing 9.50 K/9 rate. Bad: The Dodgers have scored one run or less in seven of their 14 games this month.

Although the Dodgers need a series win against the last-place Reds, they have to take the Lakers' approach and play it "one game at a time" (quotes because it's a cliché, but also true). Prediction: If the Dodgers score at least four runs today, they'll win.

Night, Sax.

Yep, it's my love for sports and i'm not precisely the kind of girl who reads cosmopolitan and watch soap operas. Most men are afraid of women who can get a run for their money in sports, books and films.

Orel said...

Sax gets the coveted 200th post!

Eric Karros said...

I had comment #200. Good for me.

Epale = Aloha?

Orel said...

Karina, you're breaking my heart! Wake up, men of Venezuela!

Eric Karros said...

Dude I thought it was me who had #200 - was it me?

karina said...

Epale is like hello. We could say to Sax: que descanses, hasta manana, chao, hasta luego...

Eric Karros said...

Karina do you watch Sex and the City?

Orel said...

Your looks can't get you everything, EK.

karina said...

I'm very fine with being single!

Orel said...

Que descanses, Sax!

Saito off to a not-so-great start. Man on first.

Eric Karros said...

Yeah I guess it was Sax who got it. Damn.

Orel said...

Oh no! Junior's pinch-hitting!

karina said...

nope, i haven't ever watched that show, maybe i'll rent the movie just to watch the clothes.

karina said...

I like Desperate Housewives.

Orel said...

Nice breaking ball by Saito.

Eric Karros said...

I've never watched Desperate Housewives but I'm not opposed to doing so. The occasion to watch it just never seems to present itself.

karina said...

Griffey Jr rocks my world...though he really GIDP.

Orel said...

Junior goes fishing!

Eric Karros said...

Celts up by 14!

Orel said...

Saito K's Griffey on a slider! Nasty!

karina said...

It's funny and twisted, mindless entertainment. Do you watch Sex and the City?

karina said...

That's the Saito we all came to know and love.

Orel said...

I don't see the Lakers winning tonight, although I'd love to see a Game 7. Maybe the refs can help out.

Orel said...

A's 3, D'backs 0.

Orel said...

Careful how you answer Karina's question, EK.

karina said...

I'd love the Lakers to win the finals.

Orel said...

Ain't gonna happen.

Eric Karros said...

I have watched it yes, Karina.

karina said...

I think he might not answer that question (or shouldn't). But his wife could have forced him to watch it.

Eric Karros said...

Enough to know the 4 characters but not enough to remember their names except the main one. It's entertaining.

Orel said...

BZZZ! Wrong answer!

Eric Karros said...

I would comment about their looks but now I feel I have to be careful with what I say

Orel said...

Oh, I'm just being a macho jerk.

Eric Karros said...

what is the right answer, Orel?

karina said...

My girlfriends talk about that show a lot. They have sort of sex and the city applications on their facebook profiles, i don't get it.

Orel said...

They could use tans and boob jobs.

Eric Karros said...

But women who are really into the show and worship Sara Jessica Parker really annoy me. And there are many such women here in the NY area.

Orel said...

EK: "Well, I've never seen a full episode. But for some reason I know all their names."

karina said...

There's nothing wrong you mention pretty girls. I don't have anything against very beautiful women ( as long as they don't take way jobs from me for being beautiful)

Orel said...

Do they really say that? That they worship SJP?

Orel said...

Loney with the snag! Dodgers win!

Let's talk about pretty girls now!

karina said...

why do they worship the sarah jessica parker? (i do have seen some pictures and the shoes are to die for)

Orel said...

Bills gets the win!

Eric Karros said...

Tying into your earlier comment Karina - I think everyone, in certain contexts and to some degree, judges others on their looks, which is OK. The problem is if someone is judged on their looks too much or in the wrong context.

Sarah Jessica Parker is not very pretty. See, that is an appropriate context and degree of judgment.

Eric Karros said...

I don't know why they worship her, but they do.

karina said...

Dodgers won! and Italy too! if the Lakers could pull off a win, it'd be a perfect sports day.

Orel said...

I find SJP very unattractive.

Eric Karros said...

Ok folks it has been a very engaging discussion, and as a bonus the Dodgers win!

Eric Karros said...

Are you rooting for Italy?

karina said...

That's a valid opinion. It bothers me only if you wouldn't give a job to her because of her looks.

Orel said...

Lakers down by 15.

karina said...

I'm an AC Milan fan, so i follow italian soccer, as a result i like italian national soccer team.

Eric Karros said...

SJP can't type either.

karina said...

I wouldn't wear a replica of the italian jersey, but i follow the team, too.

Eric Karros said...

Well you must have been happy in '06!

Anyways folks I gotta get my beauty rest...until next time!

karina said...

so, you wouldn't give a job to her!

karina said...

I certainly did.

Que descanses, Eric. I hope we can see each other in a Game Thread soon.

Eric Karros said...

Not as a secretary, no. But because of her lack of typing skills, not her lack of looks.

karina said...

that's what i meant!

karina said...

i think sjp is pretty.

karina said...

Orel, que descanses, see you tomorrow (and as always it's been a pleasure)

Eric Karros said...

In my opinion SJP is not ugly but not pretty either.

Anyhow this SJP debate could take hours so I'm going to bed too...hasta la proxima Karina & Orel -

Orel said...

Hasta luego, all! This was fun!

Steve Sax said...

The Lakers suck. What a disaster. I hope they can come out better in the second half.

They have 0 offensive rebes!

Steve Sax said...

Great. I get back late, and miss the SJP debate.

Orel said...

0 off-rebes = loss

Orel said...

Well, the Lakers are only down 25.

Steve Sax said...

On the other hand, the CW has 1 offensive Reba.
