Game 40 Thread: May 18 vs. Mets, 7p

MANNYWATCH: 40 GAMES

MARIO WATCH: 0 GAMES

Randy Wolf (2-1, 2.77) vs. Tim Redding, RHP (0-0, -.--).

COMMENTS: Fresh off a 4-2 NL East road trip, the Dodgers return home to greet the NL East-leading Mets. Luckily, the Dodgers won't see Johan Santana over the three-game series (we drew Redding, John Maine, and Livan Hernandez; the latter of which always seems to kill us, though it's still a darn sight better than Santana). Also lucky is that we're rolling back into town with the majors' best record and a whopping six-game lead over the Giants, who salvaged the last of four games with the Mets last night. Wolf, who got the win in Philly last week with his third straight quality start, has given up only one ER or fewer in his last four outings.

Unfortunately, however, we get Mario "Saved By The Bell" Lopez throwing out the first pitch, continuing a recent and concerning Dodgers trend to invite questionable "celebrities" to games (I suppose it's because the Dodgers rock at home, and fans need someone to boo, right?). With those biceps, Lopez should be able to throw the ball through the walls of the Dugout Club, right? Especially if the catcher gets lost in his dreamy eyes? Unless someone tests Lopez for PEDs prior to the game, that is.

Attack of the Ramons! Martinez & Castro vs. Troncoso.

Orel said...

Now that's how you grab #200!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why must this be so difficult?

Orel said...

None of this comment padding business.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Line drive right to Kemp

Orel said...

Kemp was on that like a homing missile.

Orel said...

Pierre perfectly positioned

Orel said...

C'mon Tron, take Church to school!

Dusto Magnifico said...

id put loney in before Mota.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn, it was bound to happen

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's a simple question: Would you play the Predator monster if he promised not to kill any of the other players?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAMMIT!

Orel said...

Damn. Game over.

Orel said...

OOOOOOH BOY! Church missed the bag!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WAIT WTF!? OUT AT THIRD! HOLY COW!

Dusto Magnifico said...

Nims said...

Dusto Magnifico said...

Torre strikes again!...

Dusto Magnifico said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hafta see how Gameday puts this up

Nic j said...

And that's why you always touch all the bases.

(arm falls off)

Dusto Magnifico said...

OUT AT THIRD BASE!@@#!@@#! (I think Steiner made a mess in his pants.)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What do you expect Nic? They're half-machine!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Gameday still has nothing

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loretta walks. The play is really screwing with the Mets.

Nic j said...

I'M A MONSTER!!!!!!

Orel said...

"I have only one thought tonight: The way the Mets have played for eleven innings, they should be managed by Casey Stengel." —Vin

karina said...

Loretta lead off walk!

Orel said...

We have to win this. Set the tone for the series.

Orel said...

XP is a serious young man.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

(rips apart bed and pillows)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If the Dodgers win in the 11th Djansson gets the book

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HE DROPPED THE BALL! HE DROPPED THE BALL!

Orel said...

OH MY GOD

Nic j said...

After the game I'm gonna take the seaward out.

Dusto Magnifico said...

yup!!!

HE DROPPED THE BALL!!! HE DROPPED THE BALL!!!!

Dusto Magnifico said...

oops

karina said...

That ball has eyes...We need the most beast mode here.

Nic j said...

Haha Pierre IBB. He's become the most respected man in the lineup.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bases Juiced for Furcal

Nims said...

2 IBBs in as many games to Juan Pierre. My brain is exploding

Dusto Magnifico said...

according to gameday those int balls are like 17 feet in the air

karina said...

We live in a world where Juan Pierre is IBB for the second time in 2 or 3 days. Rancho Ardiendo for the struggling Furcal.

Orel said...

I'll leave when I'm good and ready!

Nic j said...

Suicide squeeze!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time for Furcal to step up

Orel said...

All Furcal has to do is not hit into a triple play.

Steve Sax said...

I am not watching this, but after watching gameday get stuck on the mets' "in play, run(s)" for 5 mins, I'd appreciate an update from a kind soul. Gameday literally broke down...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Or some kind of double-play with a 2 in the middle

Nic j said...

Thanks for picking up the punchline Orel.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Beltran: I've made a huge mistake

Damon said...

LOL IBB

Damon said...

Sax some guy his a triple while church was on first and church didn't hit third on the way home

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Steiner nearly killed Furcal after he poped foul

Dusto Magnifico said...

Furcal POPS IT UP... and out of play...

thanks steiner.

Penos Cabell said...

wow

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit, Furcal with a shallow fly-ball

Orel said...

Furcal swung at ball four.

karina said...

Not far enough, Raffy. Go O-Dog!

Damon said...

Beltran is playing just to the right of 2nd base. Branch Rickey styles

Dusto Magnifico said...

steiner is so freaking excitable

the trite fantastic said...

5 infielders, no one in center, and Furcal hits it to left.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's like there's some kind of screen 200 feet away from leftfield

Orel said...

Kemp consoling Furcal in the dugout.

karina said...

like it was 1959!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The O-Dog keeps fouling

Orel said...

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Nims said...

If K-Rod weren't such a closing primadonna, he would have been called in to face Furcal.

Penos Cabell said...

Great ending

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ground ball to first, Reed throws it to home...AND HE THROWS IT AWAY AND THE DODGERS WIN IT!

Nic j said...

the mets deserve a banger in the mouth for that one.

Penos Cabell said...

What an ugly game

karina said...

I'll take that error. Let's go Blue!

Nims said...

Keep rubbin it in, Vin!

Dusto Magnifico said...

IF IT WAS A FISH THE DODGERS WOULD THROW IT BACK, BUT ITS A WIN AND THE DODGERS WILL TAKE IT!!!!

the trite fantastic said...

We'll take a win on 5 hits!!!

karina said...

Do you think it was ugly? from the Dodgers side, it featured its fair share of speed and good defense.

Dusto Magnifico said...

Why is Jeremy Reed playing first base? I mean, I dont mind... but dude is a legit outfielder.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Congrats to Rbnlaw who wins the book!

Neeebs said...

Winnig ugly is a sign of this team coming together. But Torre blew this game in the 8th inning.
