Game 42 Thread: May 20 vs. Mets, 7p

MANNYWATCH: 38 GAMES

Jeff Weaver (2-1, 3.38) vs. Livan Hernandez (3-1, 5.59).

COMMENTS: We can beat the Mets when they make five errors, not including forgetting to touch third base on the game-winning run. We can beat the Mets when they make one error. So the question tonight is, can we beat the Mets if they don't make any errors? Not that I'm predicting an error-less game for the Mets, but it would be nice to win a game that they didn't giftwrap for us with a bow, right? So far, the Dodgers are 7-3 against NL East teams, which we all said was going to be the Dodgers' true test of mettle after fattening up on the easy pickings of our own division. A sweep against the Mets would indeed be sweet.

Joe Torre had to rustle Weaver up from a deep sleep yesterday, in order to inform him he'll be starting tonight in place of Eric Stults, who has a spwained left thumby (awwwwwww!). Can Shaggy shake off the effects of scooby snacks and lead a group of meddling kids to victory?

"Dodgers must feel like they just got out of a cage."--Vin

Orel said...

Nice work by Leach and Rbnlaw.

Orel said...

What do you guys think?

(a) Dodgers take the lead here in the 8th

(b) Dodgers walk off in the ninth

(c) Extra innings

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No props for getting 199?

Steve Sax said...

Orel, someone is commenting under your name, as you report from the press box.

Steve Sax said...

Was that the coca cola question?

B

Orel said...

Full count to O-Dog.

Steve Sax said...

50,761. That means they ran out of bobbleheads! Gotta go check ebay

Steve Sax said...

there's one that ends in 12 minutes, going for $31

Orel said...

That was a solid single.

Steve Sax said...

O-Dog with a basehit, but I'm keeping my answer as B

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So the O-Dog made sure Ethier had the chance to get the GIDP

rbnlaw said...

(a) Score now. I'm getting sleepy.

rbnlaw said...

MLASF,
Always the optimist.

Steve Sax said...

Just cracked open my first beer...and it's after the 7th inning! Advantage: Home.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's how I roll.

Steve Sax said...

steal, o-dog, steal

Orel said...

Andre showing some discipline.

Steve Sax said...

Big Papi apparently got a HR tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ethier walks.

Steve Sax said...

Men at first and second...

Orel said...

RUSSELL

rbnlaw said...

Breakthrough!

Orel said...

And the answer is...(a)!

Steve Sax said...

Wow, that is a huge RBI for Martin. Great job, J Mart

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Russ!
cmon M-Lo!

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers didn't want rbnlaw too sleepy. Nice of them to comply!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAMN GAMEDAY

Orel said...

IBB Loney to get to Leach's spot. Loretta PHing.

Steve Sax said...

Padres up 2-1 in the top of the ninth, with the Giants at the plate

Marlins and Snakes tied at 7 in the 11th

Steve Sax said...

Loretta, 8 for 16 PH this year

Mets have Castro, Pagan, and pitcher's spot coming up in the ninth

rbnlaw said...

Right you are Saxy.
Thanks Russ.

rbnlaw said...

If the Gnats lose tonight, they drop below .500.

Steve Sax said...

1-2 to Loretta, who has a business degree from Northwestern. Does he mean an MBA from Kellogg, or an undergrad degree?

Steve Sax said...

Here comes

BIG

JON

Steve Sax said...

two outs, rich aurilia up for the giants

Steve Sax said...

I think the Giants just lost

Orel said...

Brox Mode

Steve Sax said...

Okay Brox, let's have a nice and smooth night tonight. Orel's had a long day, and rbnlaw is sleepy.

Steve Sax said...

Giants did indeed lose, falling to a 19-20 record

Fred's Brim said...

3rd day in a row for JB

Steve Sax said...

Dbacks score in the top of the 12th to go up 8-7

Steve Sax said...

Fly ball to Kemp for out #1.

Orel said...

People chanting "Sweep!"

Steve Sax said...

This Mets batter seems to have the same routine every time he enters the batter's box.

Might that be a PAGAN RITUAL?

Steve Sax said...

Are those people chanting sweep from within the VSPress Box, Orel?

Orel said...

The oxymoronically-named Angel Pagan gets a single.

Steve Sax said...

There is no God. Pagan gets a single.

And here comes Jeremy Reed.

Steve Sax said...

Reed, 4-for-10 as a pinch hitter this year

Darn, if Loney had been on the bag correctly, they could have picked off Pagan

Steve Sax said...

Brox gets Reed to foul out to Loney.

Steve Sax said...

Two down!

Steve Sax said...

Ramon Martinez, 0-for-11 this series

Steve Sax said...

Vin Scully sounds disappointed that we're not seeing Sheff PH for Martinez.

rbnlaw said...

It's up to Ram0-11n Martinez.
Buffalo is nice this time of year.

Steve Sax said...

Vin is really beating up on Ramon here. Maybe Ramon parked too close to Vin's car back when he was a Dodger.

rbnlaw said...

Uno Mas, Brox

Steve Sax said...

Pagan waltzes into second. In a one-run game. Hmm.

Fred's Brim said...

finish him, JB. remember Ruiz

Steve Sax said...

Okay Brox, come on dude

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DODGERS SWEEP!

rbnlaw said...

SWEEP!

Steve Sax said...

There we go!

SWEEEEEEEEEEP

Fred's Brim said...

Steve Sax said...

NY 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position this series.

DODGERS WIN!

Steve Sax said...

Bobbleheads for everybody!

Orel said...

Leach's first ML victory. Down to the clubhouse!

Fred's Brim said...

congrats on your first win Brent! you earned it!

Steve Sax said...

June 2007, the last time the Dodgers swept the Mets at the Stadium

Dodgers now 17-3 at home tying a record held by the YankMes in 1998 (also Torre)

rbnlaw said...

8.5 UP ON THE GNATS!!

Fred's Brim said...
