Game 101 Thread: July 29 @ Cardinals, 5p

Clayton Kershaw (8-5, 2.96) vs. Joel Pineiro (9-9, 2.95).

COMMENTS: In their past five starts, the Dodgers have a 1-4 record, have been outscored 33-14 — and outhit their opponents 52-50. (They also stranded a total of 44 men on base.) The main culprits for this mini losing streak have been poor situational hitting and an ineffective bullpen.

Dodger players have the additional pressure of knowing other NL teams are improving...with more deals on the way. Dodger fans have the additional pressure of knowing Vin Scully's wonderful ride has an end date. But at least Mark Loretta pitched last night. How cool was that?

P.S.: Don't forget 100SS rules still apply!

600

I Alivandi said...

HOLY SHIT. Weaver K'd Pujols with the crossfire slurve.

Nic j said...

Man Russ set up almost in the on deck circle.

Erin #2 said...

DAMNIT

J. Steve said...

oops.

rbnlaw said...

rbnlaw, out of nowhere!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KKKKKKHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNN

Josh S. said...

Weaver should get the 600 points.

Orel said...

MLASF wins it!

Orel said...

My bad! Rbnlaw wins it!

rbnlaw said...

Orel was right. One post and you're in the game.

Erin #2 said...

I am so sad......

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good inning for Weaver.

Orel said...

I could have sworn EK was going to show up.

rbnlaw said...

Shaggy with the nasty!

Josh S. said...

Weaver is magic under the arch.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm gonna burn up all the points I earned.

Orel said...

On to the 14th!

Erin #2 said...

I must be a least -100 by now!

rbnlaw said...

EK can kiss it.

Nic j said...

Maybe the dodgers plan is to extend the game until all the cards fans leave. Then make their move when the cards are weakened by less fan support.

Orel said...

Rbnlaw gettin' cocky!

Orel said...

@Nic j: Unfortunately, that would also happen to their viewing audience.

Nic j said...

Rbnlaw is strutting around the thread like Ric Flair

WOOOOO!!!

rbnlaw said...

Leading lady on.

Orel said...

Raffy leadoff!

Orel said...

C'mon O-Dog, extend the magic!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Raffy keeps hope alive.

rbnlaw said...

I am the Nature Boy. Have you heard?
Woooooooooooooooooooooooo

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

was

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

a

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

bad

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

bunt

Orel said...

700 points, people. The lead can be yours.

rbnlaw said...

MLASF shooting for 700.

EK's silence is deafening.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good O-Dog bunt.

Orel said...

You know, playing for one run really hasn't helped so far....

I Alivandi said...

I will say that other than Torre not bringing in Kuo to face Ludwick, this may be the best game he has managed for the Dodgers.

J. Steve said...

Good night, all! Go Blue!!!

Orel said...

IBB Manny. Make 'em pay, Andre!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Another competitor has been removed...

rbnlaw said...

I thought I heard a smattering of cheers for O-Dog's bunt. After all, the St. Looie fans love a good baseball play.

Josh S. said...

The booing is getting old, especially since Manny hasn't been much of a threat.

Orel said...

No, don't goooooooooo

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Maybe it's the boos that are hindering him.

Nic j said...

Rbn, I always knew you were a limousine ridin', jet flyin', kiss stealin', wheelin' dealin', son of a gun!

Orel said...

100SS favors the insomniacs.

I Alivandi said...

Time for CLUTCH MODE (again, its the 14th for crying out loud)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Whoever can get 700 is set up for life. They just have to block other.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

*others

Erin #2 said...

I've been doing a lot of booing here and its helped.....

rbnlaw said...

"Dylan Hernandez at the L.A. Times talked to GM Ned Colletti, who says that the scratch of Elbert did not have to do with a trade. He didn't elaborate further. That could mean Elbert is getting called up instead."
@mlbtraderumors.

See, I told you.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So mutch for Clutch-Mode

Orel said...

Wow, Andre looked foolish there.

rbnlaw said...

Nice at-bat, Dre.

Nic,
You should see me in the ring.

Orel said...

Dodgers are trading Elbert for Lincecum.

I Alivandi said...

Comic Book Man is dealing.

rbnlaw said...

C'mon Beard!

Orel said...

Hawksworth? Is this guy out of a Harry Potter book?

Erin #2 said...

Time to do the wave..

up down up down...

Josh S. said...

I have to give the STL fans some credit, though. They're legit into the game and cheering every strike.

rbnlaw said...

@Orel:
Wahahahahahaha!

That would mean Timmah has no arm left ala Shmitty.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Either Harry Potter or Dawson's Creek with Wizards. They're both the same.

Orel said...

666

I Alivandi said...

Orel - I also heard Josh Bell for Albert Pujols :-p

Orel said...

Toss a beach ball around, Erin!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least take the bat off your shoulders, Beard.

Josh S. said...

What's a Hawksworth?

Quite a bit, apparently.

rbnlaw said...

Orel, The Dark Prince?

Who knew?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What's a Tim Conway?

About a 180 lbs.

Orel said...

@Ali: Albert can just jump on the plane with us!

Orel said...

Weaver's probably good for three innings.

rbnlaw said...

Shaggy has to go the distance in this now.

Erin #2 said...

I needed to stretch.....it was my 14th inning stretch.

I Alivandi said...

I heard Clayton Kershaw may have started this game. Heard he might have pitched decently too.

rbnlaw said...

What's a Grecian ern?
about $7.75/hr.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kershaw so deserved a win.

rbnlaw said...

*urn.

rbnlaw said...

Almost there. . .

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Tomorrow Kuroda should drill Rasmus in the back.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Like I said, a game neither team should have won or lost.

I Alivandi said...

MLSF - Absolutely. Go Bob Gibson on him.

Erin #2 said...

Getting closer

rbnlaw said...

Proof there is no god:
@mlbtraderumors
Echoing Buster Olney's earlier reports, Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi at FOX Sports are saying that the Marlins are indeed the most aggressive of 10 to 15 teams looking to add Heath Bell. The Marlins have the prospects to get a deal done and "could easily absorb" the $400k left owed to Bell this season. However, the Padres are said to want the Marlins' top pitching prospects in Sean West and Andrew Miller if such a deal were to happen, a high price to pay.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Maybe we use Schmidt for long-relief?

Erin #2 said...

Doot doot doot dooot
Charge....

rbnlaw said...

One more beer and I'll miss 700.

Erin #2 said...

well

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, Weaver.

rbnlaw said...

If this game was at Dodger Stadium, we'd be the only ones left in the stands.

Well, I'd be at my car where the beer is still being served.

Orel said...

Nice, Weaver!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

15th inning here we come
Right back where we started from

rbnlaw said...

Good for Shaggy.

Erin #2 said...

*Pulls out Steve Garvey Magic Ball*

*Rubs the top*

Oh magic garvey will I get 700

I Alivandi said...

Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you?

Erin #2 said...

Try again 700

Erin #2 said...

700

Orel said...

700

rbnlaw said...

700

Erin #2 said...

Can't type, guess not....

Orel said...

WOO HOO

rbnlaw said...

Keerist.
Just missed.

Josh S. said...

Whoops. Got a snack and missed 700. Good thing, too. I don't want to go -140 on my first attempt.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I HIT PREVIEW INSTEAD OF PUBLISH

Erin #2 said...

So that should make me -500

Orel said...

Only one thing to do: Go for 800!

Delino DeShields said...

689 posts? did we get hit by a virus?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I would have had it if I hit publish.

Erin #2 said...

Well Orel, you are a winner!

Orel said...

That's what my mom tells me!

Orel said...

Really, we need to score some freakin' runs here.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's go to the 16th so I can get 800.

rbnlaw said...

Ouch. I lose 70 points.
Such is the life of a high stakes playa like me.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They'll need Elbert just so there's a fresh arm in the 'pen.

I Alivandi said...

Charley is loopy.

Orel said...

I don't like middle infielders with moustaches.

Erin #2 said...

Guess I'll put my magical Steve Garvey crystal ball back in the closet for another day.......

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only Clay Zavada can have a mustache.

Josh S. said...

Yeah, pitching is our biggest problem. Sheesh.

Orel said...

Pujols should have headed toward second there.

Delino DeShields said...

Pujols = COWARD! :-)

I Alivandi said...

Really? Really? Who else is calling a Juan Castro home run to win?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I guess the only way to augment this thread is to tell stories that don't go anywhere, like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. "Give me five bees for a quarter," you'd say. Now where were we? Oh yeah, the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones. You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in zeppelins, dropping coins on people, and one day I seen J.D. Rockefeller flying by. So I run out of the house with a big washtub and — hey! Where are you going? Anyway, about my washtub. I'd just used it that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as a walking-bird. We'd always have walking-bird on Thanksgiving, with all the trimmings: cranberries, Injun eyes, yams stuffed with gunpowder. Then we'd all watch football, which in those days was called baseball. Eh, why didn't you get something useful, like storm windows, or a nice pipe organ? I'm thirsty! Ew, what smells like mustard? There sure are a lot of ugly people in your neighborhood. Oooh, look at that one. Ow, my glaucoma just got worse. The President is a Democrat! Hello? I can't unbuckle my seat belt. Hello? There are too many leaves in your walkway.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

In my day, sauerkraut was called liberty cabbage, and a suitcase was called a Swedish lunchbox.

Josh S. said...

AAAAAGGGH! Nightmare fuel!

Erin #2 said...

I was doing ok up until the part about the president being a democrat and then this sick feeling came over me.......

Delino DeShields said...

that child will now hate baseball forever

I Alivandi said...

BRENDAN FUCKING RYAN.

Nic j said...

Just let him score.

Orel said...

Ryan triple. Game over.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KHAN

Josh S. said...

Yep. I hate Brendan Ryan.

I Alivandi said...

They must watch for the squeeze here.

Delino DeShields said...

Manny makes playing left field look so relaxing.

Josh S. said...

Now would be a good time for 3 straight Ks.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Swing and a miss. Good start.

Nic j said...

This is what you would call a soulcrusher.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Gets ahead 1-2

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Suddenly no one cares about getting 800

I Alivandi said...

He is the back up catcher. You struck out Albert Pujols. Please get him Weaver.

Delino DeShields said...

My dog is growling at me. Not sure if it's due to the game, or the Poquito Mas I'm eating.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One down.

Delino DeShields said...

LA Rue-ful

Erin #2 said...

I think the triple was a little 800 deflating.....

Orel said...

I think unintentional IBB here to set up the DP.

Erin #2 said...

DeLno..did you feed your dog today?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Weaver does not seem enthused by the idea of pitching to Lugo.

Delino DeShields said...

Sharkie... I mean, DeDog DeShields... got her stomach friendly food today.

rbnlaw said...

Lugo trying to pay his old team back.
Ahhhh.

I Alivandi said...

Anyone know how well DeRosa has done with Weaver?

How about a hidden ball trick?

rbnlaw said...

I

rbnlaw said...

need

rbnlaw said...

to

rbnlaw said...

get 800.

Call it a quest.

Erin #2 said...

So then it was the game that the dog was growling at.....

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rbnlaw, you'll need a lot of help.

rbnlaw said...

Can't pull shaggy, can you?

Nic j said...

This is starting to remind me of that xtras game against the white sox.

Erin #2 said...

Take me out to the ball game.....

I Alivandi said...

Random thought - The music the KABC plays to lead in and out is often really good.

Delino DeShields said...

Watch that balk mullet man.

Erin #2 said...

Take me out with the crowd...

rbnlaw said...

@MLASF:
I know you're with me.

Erin #2 said...

Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks.........

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RAFFY GOT HIM!

Orel said...

OUT AT HOME!

Delino DeShields said...

NNNNIIIIIICCCEEEE

rbnlaw said...

Erased at the plate. Epic.

I Alivandi said...

HAND RUSSELL THE GOLD GLOVE RIGHT NOW!

Erin #2 said...

woot woot

Delino DeShields said...

Re: DeDog - Or maybe chicken is just a little more tempting than pellets of mysterious origin.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now they'll have to deal with Albert.

Orel said...

Not a great throw by Furcal, either.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Weaver gets ahead 0-2

Orel said...

Yeah, I don't think he's falling for that sidearm pitch twice, Weaver.

Erin #2 said...

No, its the game and not the chicken.....

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Less than 39 hours till the trade deadline.

Orel said...

Close (re)play at the plate.

I Alivandi said...

I wonder if any of the concessions are still open at Busch?

Also, to the umpire's get OT?

rbnlaw said...

19 to go.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now it's 2-2

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Count goes full.

Erin #2 said...

I don't know if the concessions are still open but there is beer in the fridge......help yourself!

Orel said...

PHEW

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Not much of a fan for nonexistent beer.

rbnlaw said...

@Erin#2:
On the way to the fridge.

Erin #2 said...

You know, 800 points would really do a lot for me.....

Orel said...

shit
shit
shit

rbnlaw said...

So much for 800.

I Alivandi said...

Whatever the result, Kershaw and Weaver are the heroes here.

Yeah, we all knew that was going to happen.

Shit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KKKKKKKKKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Orel said...

Just like Chicago.

rbnlaw said...

Cancel that beer.

rbnlaw said...

MLASF,
Ran out of room.

Nic j said...

Exactly like the game against the sox.

rbnlaw said...

800

rbnlaw said...

shit

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

800
