That I will

rbnlaw said...

Let's get after Timmah.

Benzo Jones said...

Are we playing the real lincecum or the spooky one from the video game?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Since no one else wants to do it:

Pierre - LF
Furcal - SS
Hudson - 2B
Ethier - RF
Loney - 1B
Loretta - 3B
Kemp - CF
Ausmus - C
Weaver - P

Penos Cabell said...

Thanks MLASF. Interesting lineup.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm off. Won't be back for a long while, but I will bring back pictures.

karina said...

Happy Mothers' Day! (and mamacitas too)

The Dodgers can't win every game so can't Tim Lincecum, so let's play optimistic in here.

Hudson as third bat? it sounds interesting, as Penos Campell said, maybe it could be an experiment for a couple of days, see if it works out, while Manny gets back.

Chappy said...

How do everybody?

karina said...

Hi Chappy. First zero by Weaver.

Watching the game on TV, with the Giants broadcast so i'll stick with the latin announcers.

Delino DeShields said...

"Now he just sits there, struggling to breathe"

Penos Cabell said...

Lets see if Pierre can keep up the hot bat.

Joe flooding the top of the order with lefties

Penos Cabell said...

Rabbits loose

Delino DeShields said...

Just to set the mood - I'm listening to Travis's cover of "The Weight" by The Band. Perfect sunny Sunday music.

But still wish I was at the game.

Damon said...

OH shit JP walk

Delino DeShields said...

Is this the real Linceum pitching, or the CG one?

(Now got Tracey Ullman's "They Don't Know About Us")

Damon said...

Someone tell him to cut that hair

Damon said...

As much as I dislike JP he's been good this year

Delino DeShields said...

If there's a poster boy for not even walking near steroids, I think it's Linceum. He's built like a pixie stick.

karina said...

Travis is great Sunday music.

By the way, Pierre is making himself useful. That's good because the team can show him for a trade.

karina said...

Hudson RBI sac fly. 1-0

Penos Cabell said...

1-0

Lakers down 54-36 at halftime

karina said...

I don't want the Lakers lose the series with Rockets.

Penos Cabell said...

Lakers came out looking real bad. They didn't take advantage of Yao's absence. Kobe was a real ballhog in the 1st quarter.

Damon said...

Will we get the Dream Weaver today?

karina said...

We will, Damon. Let's be optimistic and wait.

Damon said...

I know they're trying to rest Martin but he's been really good lately(Plus I have him on my fantasy team)but couldn't they at least let him play one more day

Penos Cabell said...

The bobble cost Weaver the out at 3B

Delino DeShields said...

Losing Yao might make the team better. Happened to Orlando without Howard that game.

Orel said...

I'm happy about scoring in the first. But we'll need to build on it.

Penos Cabell said...

While the Lakers are struggling with Houston, the Nuggets and Cavs are about to sweep their series'.

Orel said...

Kemp saves another run or two.

karina said...

That's why you can't give IBB sparingly.

Nic j said...

I knew weavers last apperance was a fluke.

Penos Cabell said...

Yeah, but IBB Ishikawa? They should have gone after him.

Damon said...

he's hitting .193 lets walk him

Penos Cabell said...

UH OH.

Damon said...

I can't watch this ill be back

Orel said...

Ugh, Weaver. 2-1 Giants.

karina said...

Pablo Sandoval, Rancho Ardiendo and an out of contro pitcher are bad news.

Orel said...

That could have been worse.

The Giants send eight men to the plate and only one hit the ball hard: the pitcher.

karina said...

He grounded out!. It could have been much worse. Anyway, someone should be warming up at the bullpen.

Nic j said...

I'm glad sandoval is an impatient hitter.

Nic j said...

Well it looks like tiny tim has clamped down.

Delino DeShields said...

Were they filming McCourt through vaseline?

Nic j said...

The last person I want to hear is frank mccourt.

Delino DeShields said...

I do love pink bat day. Though I think they should do bedazled bats next year.

Delino DeShields said...

"Anger gets you nowhere"
I think anger has gotten us far in the human race.

Delino DeShields said...

Weaver's lost some pounds along with that hair.

Delino DeShields said...

That last pitch to Weaver was NASTY. Lincecum really does deserve his own CG Doppelgänger.

Delino DeShields said...

That's how we do it in Raffi-Wood.
2-2.

Nic j said...

JP is making it really hard to not like him.

Delino DeShields said...

Orlando with the dramatic exit at the plate.

Delino DeShields said...

Sax might owe the Pierre family an apology.

Delino DeShields said...

Aflac answer...

Lincecum
Johnson
Peavy
Webb
Zito

Funny how the worst teams have all of them.

Delino DeShields said...

five for five!
And the Giants still wank

karina said...

What was the question?

karina said...

On the broadcast, they brought up Pierre's performance so far and how it can help him to land a trade. Then, the announcer says "the first option would be the White Sox" and i can't help to think why Pierre has to play in my teams.

Delino DeShields said...

Wouldn't you miss his smiling face, and the frustration he brings to everyone on this board (besides me)

Delino DeShields said...

Pierre looking good in the field. A few less than easy catches there.

karina said...

can't believe this Pierre defense!

Delino, at one point, i'd love to miss Juan Pierre.

karina said...

Great catches but our worries focus on his throws.

Delino DeShields said...

Not so much a horrible bunt as a great play. May pink give Juan that extra power

Delino DeShields said...

SWEEEEEETTTTTT.
Pink = Power!

Delino DeShields said...

Manny who :-)

Nic j said...

Man. I hope JP keeps that pink bat.

karina said...

Pierre: Dodgers MVP this week. Unbelievable!

Delino DeShields said...

Something tells me that Manny might not have caught up to those flyballs. (Especially now that we know where his mind's been)

Eric Karros said...

Hi folks. Wow, JP continues his unstoppableness.

Nic j said...

Did JP get into manny's medicine?

karina said...

Who would have thought, Eric?

Furcal stroke out with a pitch that should be illegal.

Eric Karros said...

Wow Lakers have cut lead to 13.

Eric Karros said...

I never would have guessed, Karina. But good for him!

karina said...

Maybe it's his supposed work ethic, maybe he wants a trade, maybe he reads our comments on this blog and wants to teach us better.

Delino DeShields said...

Lincecum has got Weaver's old hair. And now pitching like he did a couple of years ago.

Delino DeShields said...

Written on Pierre's knuckles:
F.U.C.- S.O.S.G

karina said...

Hahahahahaha, Delino. Be careful because at least, i don't live in the US.

Eric Karros said...

Or maybe one of the commenters is really JP? Hmmm...any frequent Game Thread commenter who has suddenly been absent the last few games since JP has been playing is under suspicion.

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo for the hated ones. No outs.

Eric Karros said...

Delino - if so, he's disqualified from winning the orange shake.

Delino DeShields said...

Now that play Manny could have done.

karina said...

Eric, you are getting me paranoid, what if really Juan Pierre is among us?

Oh my God, Juan Pierre is watching us!

It could be a slogan for a shirt.

karina said...

Troncoso on the mound. It's a relief.

karina said...

It wasn't. Dodgers 4-Giants 3

karina said...

don't walk the pitcher... specially when he's left handed as yourself.

Damon said...

steve garvey jersey spotted

karina said...

Epale, Damon!

I got a hunch they are going to win this game.

Delino DeShields said...

Spot a Delino jersey... then I'm impressed.

Delino DeShields said...

or ashamed.

karina said...

it should have been you, Aaron Rowand.

Eric Karros said...

Karina, if JP were really among us, that'd be pretty awesome.

Eric Karros said...

Anyways I will be in and out of this gamethread. Hard to stay focused when the game's not on TV.

Plus I gotta make dinner and work on tomorrow's puzzle!

Damon said...

it would add to the scrappyness of the sosg posters

Eric Karros said...

Not to mention our average income.

Delino DeShields said...

The joke's on you, cause (removing mask) I'm Juan Pierre.

Bring me the head of Steve Sax!

Orel said...

Will the final score indeed be 4-3 Dodgers?

Orel said...

Lakers lost. Wasn't expecting that.

karina said...

Steve Sax doesn't mean any harm...

Tomorrow's puzzle day, i had forgotten! maybe this one i would resolve.

Eric Karros said...

Actually, if one of our readers were JP, he would exhibit the following commenting patters:

-Did not comment until end of last season, when JP's playing time ceded to Manny.

-Commented frequently early this season until the last few games when JP started again.

Not sure who this might be, as I'm not on the Game Threads often enough. Not Delino. Maybe Natalie?

karina said...

Natalie is the poet here. We should research on the game threads then.

It could be a theme for a puzzle.

Eric Karros said...

I will be rooting for you in tomorrow's puzzle, Karina

karina said...

#100!

Orel said...

Nice try by Renteria there, but even Casey's faster than that.

karina said...

Awwwww, thanks, Eric.

That's why you always get your camion de carino :)

Orel said...

Juan with another base knock. Boy I hope he can keep it up.

karina said...

By the way, #100 was Eric's.

3-3 for Pierre today.

karina said...

Look, Merkin at the bullpen!

Damon said...

I picked up JP today in my espn league. I need SB bad

Delino DeShields said...

(From wristwatch)
Oh, I'm back. What did I miss? Oh, that amazing Pierre batted. Man, I wish I got to see that.

Orel said...

Nice try, Karina!

Orel said...

Karina's on the Merkin bandwagon!

Orel said...

Again: Is Furcal hurt?

Orel said...

O-Dog has pink shoelaces!

Orel said...

If Broxton gets the save today, we can thank Stults for saving his arm.

karina said...

Orel, that is your and the crew's influence!

Orel said...

Belisario is rockin' the pink Phiten!

Orel said...

We will corrupt you once and for all, Karina.

Orel said...

Uh-oh. Giants have men on 1st & 2nd, no out.

Orel said...

Wade double-clutches on the bunt. Rancho Ardiendo for the Giants.

karina said...

That wasn't save

Nic j said...

What's up with wade.

karina said...

It's lovely you corrupt me. At least i won't put any resistance.

Orel said...

Wade K's Aurilia! Let's get a DP now!

Orel said...

Wade seems to be making good pitches. They're just making better contact.

Orel said...

Sac fly ties it up. If we keep it that way, we'd be lucky.

karina said...

Tied game.

Nic j said...

Lincecum gets off again.

Delino DeShields said...

If we can get out of this inning with only giving up a run, it's a miracle.

Delino DeShields said...

Game of the day might be nationals - diamondbacks. It's a shoot out. Who knew they had it in them?

Orel said...

"If the bullpen isn't involved, it doesn't seem like a Dodger game." —Vin

Orel said...

MIRACLE

Nic j said...

Don't worry guys. JP is up 4th.

Eric Karros said...

what just happened?

Damon said...

WTF wade

Damon said...

Thats just what we needed!

Orel said...

Rich Aurilia just killed us.

Orel said...

XP up

Damon said...

Free Lambo

Damon said...

Was #3 Delwyn Youngs number?

Orel said...

XP base knock!

Orel said...

MERKIN ALERT

Nic j said...

man loney has been horrible this home stand.

karina said...

Congrats, Xavier Paul. Now, it's Bison time with two outs.

Orel said...

Nice call, Damon.

Orel said...

WHY

Nic j said...

Wow. Molina levels down XP.

Orel said...

Wow, someone made contact against Broxton.

karina said...

Gotta go :(

MattyA said...

Charlie Steiner: "Some of the players are using the pink-painted bats today on breast awareness day."

Orel said...

Broxton 1-2-3!

Orel said...

Every day is Breast Awareness Day.

Orel said...

Bye, Karina!

MattyA said...

Amen to that

Orel said...

Odds of Ausmus walk-off homer?

MattyA said...

Can Juan prove us all wrong one more time?

Nic j said...

I hate rowand

Orel said...

Damn you, Aaron Rowand.

MattyA said...

So close...

Chappy said...

crap.

Damon said...

0

Damon said...

o dawg was not happy there

Orel said...

Good thing we have the day off tomorrow.

Nic j said...

this game has loss written all over it.

Damon said...

Broxton can't pitch 3 innings?

Orel said...

That would be pushing it.

Orel said...

Phew, not a great route by Ethier but he catches up to it.

Orel said...

Wow, since last year, the Giants are 18-89 when allowing four runs.

Orel said...

McD 2-out struggling.

Orel said...

phew

Orel said...

The rest of the league isn't going to treat us this kindly.

Delino DeShields said...

This mini sirloin burger ad is a little grisly. I don't want to think about cute little mini cows getting slaughtered.

Got to cut my posts short today. There's veal for dinner.

Orel said...

This is not exactly riveting baseball.

Orel said...

Here comes J-Mart to save the day!

Damon said...

lets go russ

Orel said...

"Ballgame is almost four hours old now, so there's a distinct thought that it might go on until Father's Day. We'll see." —Vin

Orel said...

Matt Kemp + pink bat = let's get a walk-off here

Orel said...

Thank you, G. Mota.

Delino DeShields said...

BLAKE with the defense!

Orel said...

Blake saves Mota's bacon for the first out.

Penos Cabell said...

I'm leaving in 20 minutes to see Star Trek , they better get this over with before then.

Orel said...

Mota is killing us. Bases loaded for the Giants, one out.

Orel said...

DP DP DP

Orel said...

We look so incompetent right now.

MattyA said...

Why is Mota even on the roster?

Delino DeShields said...

Mota pitching. Pretty much what I expected. (if they knock in another run or two, that is)

MattyA said...

Come on Ausmus - at least take a cut.

Nic j said...

What a horrible way to lose.

Orel said...

CASEY
CASEY
CASEY

MattyA said...

The bearded wonder!

Nic j said...

Nevermind

Delino DeShields said...

AND BLAKE DOING IT FROM THE PLATE TOO. HERO OF THE MOMENT

Orel said...

Casey visits Mannywood!

MattyA said...

They better get another one, 'cause there's nobody left in the pen

Orel said...

C'mon JP, work some magic.

Nic j said...

Damn aumus. Why wasn't he on base.

Orel said...

Leach?

MattyA said...

Like I said, nobody in the pen

Nic j said...

And were back where we started.

Orel said...

Motagain.

Orel said...

One pitch, one out. Keep it up.

MattyA said...
