Game 47 Thread: May 26 @ Rockies, 5.40p

MANNYWATCH: 33 GAMES

Eric Milton (0-0, 4.50) vs. Aaron Cook (3-1, 4.68).

COMMENTS:

SoSG Sax: Hi, Eric. What's happening? We need to talk about your ERA reports.

Eric Milton: Yeah. My last start. I know, I know. Uh, Joe talked to me about it.

SoSG Sax: Yeah. Did you get that memo?

Eric Milton: Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy, I need to last more than four innings and not give up the lead twice when I start a game. And the problem is just that I forgot the one time (which was my first start in two years following Tommy John surgery). And sure, you're starting me at Coors Field against a guy who pitched a four-hit shutout in his last start, but it's okay. I've already taken care of it, working out the kinks in my delivery and all, so it's not even really a problem anymore.

SoSG Sax: Uh,......yeah. It's just we're expecting better results on all of our ERA reports from our starting pitchers. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to last longer than four innings from now on, that'd be great. Or it's back to a windowless room in the basement for you, Milton--without your red stapler this time. All right!

200!

Fred's Brim - Wade has gotten murdered by outlying BABIP and %LOB. His FIP is actually almost 1/2 a run less this year than last.

karina said...

almost...

Penos Cabell said...

Wade gets out of the jam

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wade escapes the inning.

karina said...

If you look closely, he inherited a runner, he walked one batter but it looks like he dominated them.

Just sayin'

karina said...

Orel, that ad is also hilarious!

Orel said...

Insane. BEAST MODE is playing out of his mind.

Andrew said...

Beast Mode!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Beast Mode is every mode.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The O-Dog with an RBI-single. Beast Mode scores. 5-1 Dodgers.

Fred's Brim said...

dinker from O sends Beast home!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Cook is toast.

Fred's Brim said...

was that a smile from Juanny?

Penos Cabell said...

Anyone notice Eric Gagne signed with an independent league team?

Alireza said...

BEAST MODE. Seriously, when did Juan Pierre remember how to hit?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, I read that on MLB Trade Rumors.

Alireza said...

I would love to see Juan hit an IOP Cycle at Coors.

Alireza said...

I wonder what Pierre's trade value is now?

Orel said...

Helton dings Dinger

Penos Cabell said...

"Game Over" seems like a distant memory.

How the mighty have fallen.

karina said...

5-1. Sweet, thanks Beast!

Penos Cabell said...

Interference?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Steal is taken back.

Orel said...

Ethier with the K and interference. Can it get any worse?

Orel said...

SD & ARI scoreless in the fifth

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fielder's choice. Beard Mode replaces O-Dog at first, 2 away.

Penos Cabell said...

Orlando 91 - Cleveland 88

5:45 left in the 4th

Penos Cabell said...

karina said...

The Rockies have a couple of commercials that scream "let's abuse the mascot". Loved it!

karina said...

Tron started with a walk...

Orel said...

On the verge of another.

Orel said...

Borderline!

Fred's Brim said...

jeez Tron. throw strikes

Orel said...

You know Rasheed's whole "ball don't lie" thing? It's like that with strikeouts on borderline pitches. Two on, one out for the Rockies.

Orel said...

Just one more, Tron.

Orel said...

Wow, Tron just made Helton look foolish. Nice job.

Penos Cabell said...

Tron gets out of the jam.

Fred's Brim said...

Tron, you are one nasty sunuva-b!

Orel said...

Orel said...

Tron just sac bunted. Good job.

Orel said...

Yeah, I messed up the score. Fortunately, I can erase my mistakes!

Orel said...

LeBron at the line with 0.5 left.

Penos Cabell said...

LeBron at the line with 0.5 left. He can tie it up here.

Nic j said...

lebron gets a weak foul call with .5 seconds

Orel said...

Orel said...

PHEW! for the Cavs!

Orel said...

The entire city of Cleveland just had a heart attack.

karina said...

Pierre; the RBI Beast!

Orel said...

Meanwhile, Beast Mode bloops in two! 7-1 Dodgers!

Penos Cabell said...

I wanna see Kobe vs LeBron, so I've gotta cheer for Cleveland.

Penos Cabell said...

Orlando fans want a foul.

Penos Cabell said...

Overtime.

Nic j said...

thats a kind of BS no call, lebron would have got that call.

Orel said...

Even the refs want to see Kobe vs. LeBron.

Nic j said...

sometimes i wonder if the refs can see anything at all.

Orel said...

Dinger's Other Job

Fred's Brim said...

Great inning Tron. Do you have another in you, Another multi-inning save in Colorado?

karina said...

King James witha leadoff single.


Orel, that ad is so funny, too! and it involves abusing the mascot.

Fred's Brim said...

wow nice grab

Orel said...

ORL by 4, 21.0 seconds left

karina said...

On TV, they just said the Cards are the team with most wins within their division. Does someone remembers how many wins have the Dodgers in the division?

Orel said...

Nothing funnier than mascot abuse!

Nic j said...

the dodgers have more, maybe they meant most in the central division

karina said...

I wonder if there is any Phillie Phanatic abusing ad.

karina said...

Nic j, i was pretty sure the Dodgers got more wins, but he said "in the MLB" or maybe he should double check his facts.

Orel said...

Wouldn't it be something if it were the Nuggets and Magic in the Finals?

Nic j said...

they lie all the time, i was watching highlights from last week when the redsox were playing the jays. and they kept gushing over how the red sox were killing the best team in baseball, all the while we had the best record.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If it were Denver/Orlando, it would create a record for largest ratings drop between two NBA Finals.

Nic j said...

the nuggets and magic in the finals, thats crazy. Thats like the phillies and rays in the world series.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes Brent. That's why Joe likes you

Nic j said...

king james down 3-1 whouldathunkit

karina said...

Orel, the Twins also have hilarious ads:

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

dammit it's Dinger

Fred's Brim said...

Nice win there, plus Uncle Milty gets the win! whoda thunk it?!

karina said...

Good one, Fred's Brim!

karina said...

This is a Dodger win. Go Blue!

Orel said...

Post-Game Thread is up!

Steve Sax said...

Nice win for the Dodgers tonight, way to go Milton. No basement for you!

JP is still an otherworldly Manny-esque, with a late two-run double in the clutch.

Steve Sax said...

SD down 6-4 at AZ, bottom 8

SF up on ATL at home, top 8
