Game 41 Thread: May 19 vs. Mets, 7p

MANNYWATCH: 39 GAMES

Chad Billingsley (5-1, 2.30) vs. John Maine (3-2, 4.24).

COMMENTS: Well, that was unexpected. In last night's 11-inning tilt between the Albuquerque Isotopes and the Buffalo Bisons, the home team had five hits and the visitors had five errors. I mean, who makes five errors?

Anyhoo, the NL East-leading Dodgers put their ace Billingsley against the Mets' Maine man tonight. The Dodgers, amazingly still undefeated at home, continue to dominate at Dodger Stadium. Juan Pierre has stepped up in place of Manny Ramirez, who received a shocking lifetime ban from baseball by current commissioner Bart Giamatti. In other news, the world is flat.

Beautiful

Chris said...

Hi Dodger fans - thought I'd check in now that the Lakers have secured an ugly W. Looks like Bills is settling down.

Penos Cabell said...

Ryan Church: Series MVP

Orel said...

I got #100 and #200 tonight, but not really.

Orel said...

Wassup Chris?

Nice, PC.

Penos Cabell said...

I think Jerry Manuel is gonna smack Church around after the game.

Orel said...

BEARD POWER! 5-3 Dodgers!

Fred's Brim said...

BEARD!!!!

Penos Cabell said...

The bearded One!!!

karina said...

Blake 3 run HR!!!

Alex Cora said...

CASEY AT BAT!!!! HR!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Blake is back, bitches!

Chris said...

Not much, Orel. Looks like I'm good luck tonight!

Orel said...

And Bills is on the on-deck circle.

what_difference_does_it_make said...

"She is gone!"

Fred's Brim said...

Bills staying in now

Orel said...

Bills singles!

Fred's Brim said...

and another hit!

Alex Cora said...

Anyone think we should move him up in the order? Or if it aint broke...

karina said...

Bills continues the party with a single...

Orel said...

Everything's coming up Milhouse!

Orel said...

I have no idea how Blake has so many HRs hitting in front of the pitcher.

Neeebs said...

Da Beard is better than Spocks Beard.

Chris said...

It's so crazy that Blake continues to lead the team in HR from the 8th spot. It just makes no sense!

Orel said...

JP singles!

Fred's Brim said...

so
many
double
plays

Orel said...

Geez Raffy. DP ends the inning.

Fred's Brim said...

OK Bills - one more good one!

karina said...

Plain and simple: he's hitting the ball well, making proper adjustments at every at-bat. It;s not the position on the lineup, it has more to do with his inner skill, imho, of course.

Chris said...

I agree, Karina. Without any protection behind him, Blake has to do it all with skill. A great hitter.

Fred's Brim said...

somebody in the front row behind the plate stole Dan Shaughnessy's hairdo

Alex Cora said...

Well, when you use no protection, you better have a lot of skill...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm out. Too much excitement and stress for one night.

Fred's Brim said...

wow big spot for young Brent - be tough, kid!

karina said...

Kudos to Bills, he made much better than we all expected (due his performance early in the game)

Fred's Brim said...

agreed, Karina. I hope he can build on it, especially the ability to "find it" after not having it

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Careful O-Dawg!!!

Fred's Brim said...

damn. great effort, O. i hope you are ok!

Nic j said...

crap the last thing we need is an injury

Nic j said...

we already have one important player on the "DL"

Loney Fan said...

It looked like he was pulled more out of precaution.

Orel said...

I hope O-Dog's removal is purely precautionary.

Fred's Brim said...

crap. tough spot now for Belly. You be tough, too!

Nic j said...

for 40 more games.

Alex Cora said...

Damn, that fall looked bad. Hope he is ok.

Orel said...

Watch out, Sheffield might fist off another bloop single for an RBI.

Delino DeShields said...

He looked like he got off the field without too much agony.

Orel said...

Corkscrew! TV radar says "only" 91 mph.

Fred's Brim said...

yessir! thank you, Belly!

Delino DeShields said...

Wow, the Tigers released this guy?!?!

Orel said...

rowr

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Can someone please tell me why we started to have someone sing "God bless America" at every game before "Take me out to the ballgame?"

Fred's Brim said...

i say leave O out of the lineup tomorrow, give him a day or two to feel right again and move Dre up to third, maybe move Matt or J Russ up to 4th

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No! Why must everything I love run away?

Nic j said...

hey castro is batting .409

what a clean up hitter.

Orel said...

Dodgers taking after the Yankees with GBA.

Fred's Brim said...

Will Belly pitch the 8th?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yay! My affectionate use of "Belly" is catching on!

what_difference_does_it_make said...

"Orel said...

Dodgers taking after the Yankees with GBA."

Yeah, but why?

Fred's Brim said...

If we can get through the 8th cleanly, the Mets have the bottom of the lineup up in the 9th

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now we play the Wade-ing game

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Cory!

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Whew, only a bruise...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Vinny: O-Dog bruised his left-shoulder. He is day-to-day.

rbnlaw said...

OK, I'm lame (for many reasons).
GBA?

Wife has commandeered the TV for the AI final on DVR and I'm too lazy to go to the other room.

Delino DeShields said...

rbnlaw - i'm in a similar boat. Switching from Idol to the Baseballs.

Adam Lambert went a big step down tonight in my humble book.

rbnlaw said...

DDS,
The wife loves her some Kris Allen and he seems to be owning the final.

Neeebs said...

Corey prove me wrong.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ARGH, damn David Wright

Alex Cora said...

It was Dancing with the stars, Lakers and dodgers for me...ugh

rbnlaw said...

2 on no outs. Thanks Wade.

Neeebs said...

He doesn't have IT this year.

Delino DeShields said...

Sounds like Church had his whole family there to witness last night. Oye.

Delino DeShields said...

Martinez up - Sombrero Watch.

Orel said...

C'mon, DP here.

QuadSevens said...

I may be waaaaaaay late with this, but I finally get the gag with the game thread. 5 errors in the second paragraph. Just like the Mets from last night. Took me forever, but I got it! Go Dodgers!

Delino DeShields said...

The sombrero is being tailored....

rbnlaw said...

Golden Sombrero?

Alex Cora said...

Woohoo! DP!!!

Orel said...

Inning-ending DP!

Delino DeShields said...

I think he'll be roaming in Buffalo soon

rbnlaw said...

I'll take the DP

Orel said...

"Yeah, but why?"

Basically the same reason Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" has become the eighth inning song. They're trying to create these musical traditions.

Orel said...

"I may be waaaaaaay late with this, but I finally get the gag with the game thread. 5 errors in the second paragraph. Just like the Mets from last night. Took me forever, but I got it! Go Dodgers!"

HALLELUJAH

Alex Cora said...

Hey an K Rod sighting!

QuadSevens said...

Didn't want you to think your well thought out game thread was a waste Orel. =)

Fred's Brim said...

take some pitches, guys. get a taste of what this guys throws for later in the season

Alex Cora said...

I though Kemp got a hold of that, but just a lazy fly ball.

Orel said...

Thanks, Q7!

Orel said...

Damn you, Captain America!

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, JB, finish this off!

Alex Cora said...

Close...

rbnlaw said...

OK, GBA= God Bless America.

Yeah, save it for Memorial Day, 07/04, Labor Day, and 09/11.
Every game makes it lose its luster.

Alex Cora said...

this...

Orel said...

Finally, FURCAL!

Orel said...

A lot of people share your opinion, Rbnlaw.

rbnlaw said...

2 outs on 7 pitches. Could it be?

what_difference_does_it_make said...

I just saw Snorlax in the crowd!!!

Neeebs said...

Broxxxy

Alex Cora said...

OUT!!!

Fred's Brim said...

yes Yes YES!!

rbnlaw said...

A 10 pitch save. Very nice.

Alex Cora said...

Great game! Go Blue!

Fred's Brim said...

agreed, Alex! this one was very satisfying

rbnlaw said...

7.5 up on the Hated Ones.
Beast Mode out of his head.
The Beard in control.
Brox with a quality save.
Life is good
