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.

undefeated at home? Booger comfused...

QuadSevens said...

You and me both Booger. There's about 5 false statements in this game thread. Is this another theme like "that's good/that's bad?"

Steve Sax said...

come on, guys, work with us here. find the gag

Neeebs said...

Frozen in time??????

Lifetime ban = Pete Rose + Bart Giamatti.

Neeebs said...

BTW, its Jewish Heritage Day at Dodger Stadium tonight.

Nic j said...

the world is flat? I KNEW IT!!

Neeebs said...

Off topic (Is there a topic)

In light of RBNlaw's reference to Kentucky Fried Movie, I found the Youtube link to the Big Jim Slade Scene.

Classic sh*t.

Neeebs said...

Make that

rbnlaw said...

Nice catch Neebs. Now find the Catholic High School Girls in Trouble.

rbnlaw said...

I get the gag. This is the kind of copy that gets by the LA Times editors all the time.

rbnlaw said...

Just watched the Big Jim Slade video.
Forgot that Shadoe Stevens was the voiceover. Nice.

"And the capital of Nebraska is Lincoln!"

Neeebs said...

RBN: The nudity of the "catholic girls" skit precludes it from Youtube.

I did find the "dead Johnny" gag, though.

rbnlaw said...

Damn those You Tube Prudes!
Is that assonance?
It is.
Thanks Neebs.

Andrew said...

I mean I see that there is five errors in that paragraph, but even then, you guys still touched third base.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ralph Lawler, get your best "BINGO" ready. The Clippers just won the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Nic j said...

the lakers look horrible again.

Neeebs said...

Haven't heard from EK in awhile. Wonder if he is still working on his limericks?

Nic j said...

this is disgusting.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nice little end to a bad start for LA.

Penos Cabell said...

Play is a little sloppy right now.

Walton hits a big three.

Timeout Denver.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Luke Walton with a 3! Lakers only down by 3, 35-32 Denver.

Nic j said...

the bench is playing better than the starters

Penos Cabell said...

MLASF - Do you know why Adam Morrison is in street clothes?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

He is currently inactive

Penos Cabell said...

Oh thanks

Nic j said...

he and sun yue went to the mens warehouse.

Orel said...

Way to step all over Vin, Channel 9.

Nic j said...

the lakers just cant get over the hump.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fisher buries it! Lakers with a 1-point lead at halftime!

Booger said...

Jose Reyes=bad case of the clap

Booger said...

i know that Beltran is supposed to be really good, but i'm just not that impressed.

Booger said...

maybe because he's never been arrested/disciplined like all the real greats!

karina said...

Kemp made another sweet play...

Epale, everybody!

karina said...

I'm getting the Mets broadcast and they're talking wonders about Bills, Kershaw and Brox.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Murphey picked off.

Booger said...

Nice pickle!! and the rundown was great too!

Booger said...

Karina,

during road games XM only broadcasts the home teams people and lately its been a lot of good talk. the marlins guys were on their knees over broxton.

one thing is for sure though, we are spoiled with Vin on TV. some of the other announcers are crap.

Penos Cabell said...

That was awsome.

Nic j said...

whats up with murphy?

he must be really funny.

Orel said...

Lakers up by one, Murphy picked off AND makes the Mets' first error of the game.

Everything back to normal now?

Booger said...

do the mets have some kind of Voodoo curse on them or something?

This is like a scene from 'Angels in the Outfield'

Orel said...

Furcal walks! Two on, no out!

karina said...

Booger, i don't get to listen Vinny as much i'd want to, at least i can watch the game.

My brother, a passionate Mets fan, sitting next to me, has a priceless expression on his face, but i can't make fun of him, he reminded me this morning the same game Sax mentioned earlier.

Orel said...

If you start to feel bad for the Mets, just remember 2006.

Orel said...

Nice new avatar, Karina!

Orel said...

Orlando was sitting dead-red, as they like to say. 1-0 Dodgers!

Penos Cabell said...

1-0 Dodgers on Hudson basehit

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The O-Dog drives in Pierre!

Nic j said...

another run in the first, now if we can just start scoring them in the rest of the innings.

Nic j said...

another double play

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

"So for Andre Ethier, the struggle continues"

Booger said...

Andre=Automatic double play.

what is his problem?

Orel said...

i miss u manny luv andre

Ben said...

Never thought I would see AE get this bad at batting.

Booger said...

at least we know who to bench when Manny comes back.

Nic j said...

ethier has to be the worst hit from the manny suspension.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I agree with EK (the real EK) that Ethier's problems are mental.

Booger said...

Andre crumbles everytime he thinks the spotlight is on him.

He did it his rookie year when everyone started putting him into the ROY argument, and he's doing it now.

He needs to grow a pair

Penos Cabell said...

Sports psychiatrist ?

Nic j said...

its all the bad photo juju

Booger said...

just like on Major League 2: he has no marbles!

Booger said...

he is probably afraid of all the cameras in the stands.

Penos Cabell said...

I don't know if anyone reads Tony Jackson, but on his blog he said he will be covering the Dodgers regularly starting June 26.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ethier should take a few photos to fall back into good graces the fans. His hitting sure won't do that.

karina said...

Thanks, Orel. I fell in love with that image.

Andre Ethier needs some rest...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a strike.

karina said...

Maybe Ethier's refusal to take photos with fans is a sort of goat.

Bills lost Wright.

Penos Cabell said...

definitely a strike

Penos Cabell said...

Good penetration by Kobe.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm very conflicted with what to watch. There's Dodgers, Lakers, and Reaper.

Penos Cabell said...

A lot of channel flipping tonight

Booger said...

He kinda looked out.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Poor tag from Raffy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Probably won't look into the Lakers until fourth quarter. I've got Yahoo Gamechannel propped up though.

Orel said...

Chad is not sharp tonight.

Penos Cabell said...

Bills lookin' a little sloppy

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a gift from Ramon.

Penos Cabell said...

Big strikeout

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This Laker game is getting ugly again

Penos Cabell said...

Russell is workin hard

Penos Cabell said...

At this rate, Chad won't be pitching too long

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Whew Lakers came back, tie game at 65 each.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Argh, Bills is way off tonight.

Penos Cabell said...

This is painful to watch. Honeycutt needs to calm Chad down.

Orel said...

RA for the Mets. I don't think the final score will be 1-0.

Penos Cabell said...

This looks like the old Chad Billingsley.

Nic j said...

our ace is pitching like a joker.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HOW DOES THE PITCHER GET A BASE-HIT!?

Penos Cabell said...

Wow, is Bills off tonight.

Orel said...

The pitcher gets two RBIs. It's going to be that kind of night.

Orel said...

Fisher 3 makes it LAL 70, DEN 66!

karina said...

Go Lakers!

have some faith, boys, even when the pitcher gets a 2 RBI hit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Who'da thunk Ariza was the cause of concern?

Penos Cabell said...

Nene on the bench. The Lakers need to penetrate.

Penos Cabell said...

Kobe is asking for a suspension.

karina said...

Impressive for a pitcher not called Micah Owings or Carlos Zambrano.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

so that's 5 techs for Kobe

Penos Cabell said...

Lakers/Nuggets getting physical

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

99

Orel said...

Another Loney pop-up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And Denver retakes the lead

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time for the Beard to shine, if beards can shine

Penos Cabell said...

Tomorrow's Casey Blake Bobblehead night!

Penos Cabell said...

That was some impressive stuff from the Dodgers.

Orel said...

How many T's for a suspension?

Nic j said...

6 in the playoffs i believe.

Penos Cabell said...

I believe 7 gets you an automatic one game suspension

Nic j said...

nm i think PC is right.

Penos Cabell said...

The NBA would never let Kobe get that 7th. He's too important to their ratings. Thats why the last one he got against Ron Artest was taken away. Plus, he didn't really deserve that one.

karina said...

4 BB in 2 IP is too much. Get your groove on, Bills!

Orel said...

Furcal works for the USPS: Air Mail!

Penos Cabell said...

Hard pick by the Birdman.

karina said...

Raffy is the shortstop with most errors in the NL.

Orel said...

I'm telling you, Furcal must be injured.

Fred's Brim said...

this is frustrating, especially having to watch the Mets broadcast. Gary and Ron are really good, but it's hard when they are talking bad about your team

Orel said...

I'm beginning to wonder if Chad is injured too.

Orel said...

Wright RBI but Loney makes the good cutoff to get him in a rundown. 3-1 Mets.

karina said...

Share your sentiment, Fred's Brim

Fred's Brim said...

at the very least he's a little rubberarmed after his pile of pitches against Philly. he was due for a dud, but I hope it doesn't wreck him for a few weeks

Fred's Brim said...

i have no idea what this ump is looking at. I think he has the Laker game on the radio

Orel said...

Two walks. We gotta score at least one this inning.

Fred's Brim said...

wow Juanny was out

Orel said...

Rancho Ardiendo! More importantly, a hit for Furcal!

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo, no outs!

though Pierre was thiiiis close to be an out.

Nic j said...

the laker game is looking alot like game 1 from the last series.

Orel said...

"This is not exactly a textbook game on how to pitch in the big leagues. For either side." —Vin

Delino DeShields said...

I just got a walk too. Maine's giving them away.

Fred's Brim said...

stay after him, O!

karina said...

Ethier, this is your moment.

Nic j said...

damn, ethier is up.

never thought id say that.

Delino DeShields said...

Depends on the book, Vin. Idiots' Guide to Pitching?

Delino DeShields said...

AND I MISSED JEWISH COMMUNITY NIGHT?!?!?!?!?! OYE VEY. Kiss my tuchas!

karina said...

That pitch was Madduxian.

Fred's Brim said...

dammit Dre - time to figure it out. enough of this pouting

Orel said...

Damn you Jose Reyes

Fred's Brim said...

the last 14 innings are starting to feel like classic Dodgers hitting. Doldrums. somebody please tell me I am wrong and we are better than that

Nic j said...

i dont know who is worse right now, lakers or dodgers

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo, no outs, zero scored runs.

You just improve from here.

Orel said...

Jackie Johnson!

Orel said...

Lakers down by 4, time's running out.

Delino DeShields said...

Vin really knows how to sell the term "O Dog"

Fred's Brim said...

Laker fans, have confidence that George Karl will eff this series up somehow

Nic j said...

what happened to the lakers, to just deflate in the playoffs after such a great regular season.

Delino DeShields said...

BABY DELINO HIT THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON. SO MY POSTS WILL BE ANGRY UNTIL HE TAKES IT OFF.

Delino DeShields said...

and now it's back to normal.

Orel said...

Lakers need a stop.

Orel said...

Lakers by 1!

karina said...

awwwwwwww, baby Delino.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

With the Laker game, no posts from me until it's over

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Casey - clear the pitcher!

Orel said...

Blake with the two-out single. At least that gets Chad out of the way.

Fred's Brim said...

go Casey!!!

Orel said...

Gasol just missed two FTs.

karina said...

RBI double by Bills! just down by one!

Orel said...

Billups rains a 3! Nugs by 2.

Fred's Brim said...

i didnt think he was gonna make it around! nice work Chadwick!

Orel said...

Tie game, 35.5 left.

Orel said...

Wow, Chad helped himself! 3-2 Mets.

Orel said...

LAL 101, DEN 99, 30.5 left

Fred's Brim said...

nice inning, Bills. You will be rewarded with one more. and hopefully some more runs!

Orel said...

9-pitch inning by Bills. Nice.

Nic j said...

the lakers game is giving me an anxiety attack, i need a paper bag.

Orel said...

Ariza with a HUGE steal!

karina said...

Go Lakers! they also can do it!

Fred's Brim said...

wow big steal by Ariza

Nic j said...

a steal on the in bounds!!!!!

Orel said...

Lakers 103, Nugs 99, 10.0 left

Nic j said...

wow, just gotta guard the three now.

Orel said...

I hate Jose Reyes and his zest for life.

Careful there, Vin (describing Reyes and Hudson as having "shiny bright teeth").

Nic j said...

and they dont, of course

Orel said...

Wow Billups huge 3 cuts it to one.

Nic j said...

how'd he do that while stepping out of bounds

Orel said...

Lakers 105, Nugs 102, 3.2 left. Nugs at the line for two.

Orel said...

LAKERS WIN

Nic j said...

what a win

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Why can't Andre Ethier be consistent?

Orel said...

What I miss? An Ethier K, shocking.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

LAKERS WIN! THEEEEE LAKERS WIN!

Nic j said...

JR smith might be hurt.

Orel said...

"Why can't Andre Ethier be consistent?"

He is but a man, a solitary human being.

karina said...

The Lakers are in the finals of the conference, right?

Fred's Brim said...

man Dre, you are not feeling good are you? Do you think it might help him to hit third for a day or two, maybe give Raffy a day off?

Nic j said...

i miss chick

Penos Cabell said...

Ugly win for the Lakers. But a win is a win.

Orel said...

One pitch, one out.

Delino DeShields said...

Reyes is a Dandy?
What's Vin implyiong

karina said...

One pitch, one out for Bills.

Who else stopped breathing for a second?

Orel said...

Maybe, FB. Maybe.

Alex Cora said...

Vin is talking about me...

Alex Cora said...

Single greatest at bat in Los Angeles Dodger's history per Vin.

Fred's Brim said...

Reyes prefers the company of men...

Homer: "Who doesn't?!"

Orel said...

He says you had "probably the single greatest at-bat in Los Angeles Dodger history."

Alex Cora said...

Thank you Vin. No autographs please.

Orel said...

Nasty. Chad's settling down—ten-pitch inning there. Now let's get him the lead.

Fred's Brim said...

Stults scratched for tomorrow's game? Weaver vs Hernandez in the scrap heap matchup! Where's Fred, Lamont and Rollo?

what_difference_does_it_make said...

at least Chad is coming around....

Alex Cora said...

Come on Matt - we need a run!

Penos Cabell said...

There's Alex Cora!

Orel said...

Bills at 105 pitches.

Orel said...

We love ya, Ryan Church!
