Post-Game 37 Thread: Glendariffic!

Marlins Mermaid Glenda would never root against her team, but she does not begrudge you cheering for the Dodgers.

DODGERS 6, MARLINS 4

It wouldn't be a Broxton save without us Dodger fans on the edge of our seats praying to the baseball gods.

Andrew said...

We need some sort of thank you card for Ed Rapuano. Torre must be taking him out on the town after the game.

Steve Sax said...

Suddenly, I find rooting for the Marlins more...attractive...

I gotta hit the books hard before the game tomorrow. I hear we need to cram for the GameThread alone.

And, I need a cold shower.

SF 5, NYM 3, top 6

Ramon said...

Broxton losing his mojo... Wade losing his mojo... but Blue still gets the win

Steve Sax said...

Mets tie it up in the 7th. 6-6. Lincecum out...

Orel said...

I guess we just have to...pray for Mojo!

Orel said...

Randy Winn triples in the 8th...Giants strand him there.

Andrew said...

I really hate Brian Wilson. There, I said it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Tie game in the Bay. Jints and Muts both at 6.

no good vibrations for the beach boy, gives up two runs in the ninth.

Just got back from dinner at Supermex in Fullerton where we got the bartender to put the game on one of the TV's. As I said, it's Angel territory. At least we won!

Andrew,
We all hate Brian Wilson. . .the giant, not the Beach Boy.

This win was important. We're .500 without Manny. He now needs us more than we need him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If David Wright ever feels like crossing his arms tonight, I would advise against that.

brian wilson vs. Frankie Rodriguez: the battle of the lame closer celebrations.

Andrew said...

Well I am pretty sure both Brian Wilsons are bat sh#t crazy.

Do you suppose Brian Wilson gets more offended by what Casey Blake did or by his home fans booing him?

rbnlaw said...

Andrew: Wah! Good.

K-Rod by far the lamest, but ask Angel fans if they'd like to have him back.

rbnlaw said...

Mets win!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's go, Mets!

Orel said...

Dodgers' lead is back to six games!

Nic j said...

ugh, i am not looking forward to David "Dodger Killer" Wright coming to town next week.

Or Tatis.

Stupid, Chan Ho Park.

Nic j said...

hey! they just showed the marlin girls on kcal news.

Steve Sax said...

Our divisional lead dwarfs any other front runner's lead. Way to go, Blue--just when everybody was kicking us while we were down, we showed some backbone. Well done.

Nic j said...

has anybody noticed that with the addition of Milton we have 4 lefties in the rotation. weird.

chad's the sole righty

Alireza said...

It isn't a gift when the ump gets it right, and Rapuano was right on the Uggla call. A batter who is hit on the hand while bunting is not making an effort to avoid and it should be called a foul ball.

Nic - One huge difference between K-Rod and Wilson. K-Rod is an elite closer and World Series hero. Brian Wilson is some crazy guy with a soul patch who crosses his arms after he lucks into a save.

Is this a caption contest?

Glenda: "YOU! The one with the iron-on Boba Fett T-Shirt, brown corduroy pants, rugged good looks, and Simpsons mesh cap. I choose YOU to accompany me to the ball tonight!"

EK: "Me? Really!?"

Glenda (rolls eyes): "No, not you. I said 'rugged good looks'."

EK: "oh."
