Game 100 Thread: July 28 @ Cardinals, 5.15p

Chad Billingsley (10-5, 3.72) vs. Adam "Loudon" Wainwright (11-6, 2.95).

COMMENTS: Once again, the Dodgers sit on the precipice of a three-game losing streak, something they've avoided all year long. So it's fitting that, two days after a hack LATimes writer called him out, Billingsley gets the chance to show if he can be that ace under pressure that the Dodgers apparently "don't have." True, Bills has struggled a bit of late, needing the Manny pinch hit grand slam to earn his 10th victory. But I'm guessing Chad has enough gumption tonight to win it for himself--and not for the fear of a three-game losing streak or the hack journalists without a clue. Just win it for you, Your Royal Thighness!

As a reminder, this game also debuts the new SoSG insipid time-wasting game, "One Hundred Splendid Sons", or 100SS. Complete rules are posted here, but the point is for us to have fun in the Game Thread competing for the 100-multipled comments. That way, even if the Dodgers fall to the Cardinals, we SoSGers can still have fun while it's grey in LA. I mean, when it's grey in LA, I sure like it that way, 'cause there's way too much sunshine 'round here. I don't know about you; I get so sick of blue skies whenever they always appear.

Damn-It

Nic j said...

come on mattie!

Dusto Magnifico said...

lemme guess? double play?

Nic j said...

cant even get a damn sacrifice, great.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now it rests on Thunder-Thighs

Nic j said...

on the bright side it wasnt a DP.

Nic j said...

this is pathetic.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There's no excuse for this. This team scores without hits.

fanerman said...

D'oh.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rockies fell to the Mets.

Nic j said...

it seems like bills pitching and our offense are rarely on the same page lately.

Nic j said...

ugh

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That looked awfully close to strike.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It begins...

Nic j said...

son of a bitch.

Nic j said...

im sure if that was anyone but Pujols it would of been a strike.

Dusto Magnifico said...

We just need one more bat. A real first baseman would be nice.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney is two-for-three today.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That does it.

Nic j said...

poor chad.

Dusto Magnifico said...

dodgers wasting another good start.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lyons likes to point out the obvious.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

fuck it.

Dusto Magnifico said...

welp, im calling it a night.

'night...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Three-game losing streak, here we come.

Nic j said...

Is it still a quality start if the pitcher implodes?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm a home run away from destroying my laptop.

Nic j said...

dont break a hand in the tunnel chad.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nic, don't even compare Bills to Kevin Brown. Thems fighting words.

Nic j said...

wasnt intentional. Bills actually seems to have a non-existent temper. Most other guys would be tearing apart the bat rack right now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I know I would

Nic j said...

maybe we need a good ass kicking. We have been getting a little complacent lately

Nic j said...

keep in mind this roadie gets no easier with the braves coming up next. They have been on a roll lately.

Nic j said...

Maybe the weather will have mercy on us and we will have a rain shortened game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Don't count on it. I hear rain is very rare in this area of the country.

Nic j said...

rumor: Elbert and Dewitt for Sherrill. Well, more of a suggestion by yahoo sports.

Nic j said...

this wouldn't be so painful if it weren't a potential playoff preview.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bill Plaschke is sitting on his golden throne, sipping Dom Perignon while laughing at us pitiful fans for thinking Bills is a worthy ace.

Nic j said...

Well, not even Halladay can win a game with NO run support.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Do you really think Plaschke listens to reason?

Nic j said...

Maybe for a little while, but then he stops when he figures out its actual reason and not the chocolate candy Reisen.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

LMAO

Nic j said...

man, leach has been terrible lately. Im assuming Sherrill will probably get his spot.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Or maybe Kuo. I could see them using Kuo as the SL to limit his pitches, especially if they acquire Sherrill.

Nic j said...

Vin is retiring next year?!? this day just gets worse and worse.

Steve Sax said...

My god, this is miserable. Will we ever score again?

Nic j said...

definately leach is the one going.

Steve Sax said...

Since we haven't scored many runs on this roadtrip, through two games, I expect the "we need a bat, too" article from Plaschke.

And Elliott. And Shaikin.

All on the same day.

rbnlaw said...

Thought I'd just drop in to say, I HATE THE FUCKING CARDINALS AND THEIR "HOLIER THAN THOU" FANS.

"Now this is getting re-god-damn-diculous."

Steve Sax said...

10-0

Isn't the mercy rule in effect?

This really screws our run differential, too.

rbnlaw said...

Where did you hear Vin was retiring? I thought he'd wait until 2012, the 50th anniversary of the stadium.

Steve Sax said...

STL has 10 runs on 8 hits

You do the math

Steve Sax said...

Pujols walks and goes 0-for-3 with two walks.

YEAH, PUJOLS

We shut down your ass!!! No hits today, baybee!

rbnlaw said...

Sax, I've crunched the numbers and here's what I get:

We suck right now. Your results may vary.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wait, what's this about Vin retiring?

Nic j said...

haha, Plaschke interview on the times website. I usually dont read his articles but i saw Vin's name.

Nic j said...

LORRETTA PITCHING!!!

Nic j said...

let loney pitch!!!!

rbnlaw said...

Let's get this shit our of our system now and clear our road in October.

Nic j said...

Look at Loney laughing.

Nic j said...

haha well he hit a batter.

QuadSevens said...

Was that a screwball???

Nic j said...

73 mph, Schmidt is jealous.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

NO! I MISSED LORETTA PITCHING! WHY?!?!

Nic j said...

he had some filthy stuff.

rbnlaw said...

This is a good move. Lighten the mood while you get spanked and hopefully come back strong tomorrow.

Nic j said...

that was a "lets go" at bat.

QuadSevens said...

Were there more comments before the game than during the game today?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's finally over.

Nic j said...

fitting it ends with a double play.

Nic j said...

The Cards are up 2-0 in the NLDS.

Josh S. said...

So...what did I miss?

Steve Sax said...
