Game 102 Thread: July 30 @ Cardinals, 5p

Hiroki Kuroda (3-5, 4.57) vs. Kyle Lohse (4-6, 4.35).

COMMENTS: Did you sit through last night's slogfest? Did you see the announcement that Jason Schmidt is scheduled to start tomorrow? Yeah, I'd be depressed too.

If it seems the Dodgers can't score to save their lives — they have 33 hits but only three runs over the last three games — then Lohse might be just what the executioner ordered. It's his fourth start since coming off the disabled list earlier this month; in his last outing, he was roughed up by the Phillies. Of course, they had the help of Cliff Lee, who, upon learning he was traded to Philadelphia, traveled back in time and actually had a pinch-hit RBI single. The Dodgers won't have that advantage because Ned Colletti refuses to trade Clayton Kershaw.

(Don't forget this is Game 3 of SoSG's 100SS series!)

Of course. That had to happen.

JL said...

lol

MR.F said...

200

karina said...

Pujols wasn't great in defense when he first came to the Majors. He worked hard to develop his potential

MR.F said...

FAIL!!!! I SUCK!

Orel said...

EK, your 200 coincided with a Ankiel HR.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'll get you, EK. Just like how Ankiel got Mota.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

and... there goes that. Nice move with Mota Torre. You SUCK!

Eric Karros said...

I concede that the fact they don't show the game where I live gives me an advantage in the 100's game.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

karina- he may have worked hard at it, but that just means Loney has to work hard at it. Loney just seems to happy go lucky and lacks "the killer instinct".

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Time to make my press for 300

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm not getting where all this "Loney is just an average defender" crap is coming from.

Eric Karros said...

I can't believe yesterday's game went to 800 comments.

NicJ said...

at least we are scoring runs now.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't believe we scored the same amount of runs as our last three games combined.

Eric Karros said...

I definitely won't be sticking around for 300. Good night folks. I'm turning in right now. Yup. In fact this will probably be my last appearance on a GT during the relevant 10-game span.

NicJ said...

philly is already up 1-0.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice pick by Beard.

EK, you are full of lies.

MR.F said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan. He makes great plays a lot, but he also messes up routine plays every now and then.

Eric Karros said...

Fanerman, are you talking about me or Beard?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It might just be me, but I think the great plays have outnumbered the mess-ups.

karina said...

You don't fool me Eric, i knew you were coming for your hundreds.

Eric Karros said...

It's all about the Benjamins, Karina.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We're still out-hitting the Cards.

karina said...

His great plays are Gold Glove worthy and he only could get better. I say that when people say he's average, he has so much room to improve...

MR.F said...

EK, I'm talking about your successor.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jeremy Giambi?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Beard is hot today

NicJ said...

alright, please attack the bullpen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That sucked.

karina said...

Hahahahahahahahaha Eric! stay a little while!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bison arise, arise Bison.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

loney sucks

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You suck

Dusto_Magnifico said...

pretty sure loney has reached his peak.

NicJ said...

The thread is starting to get ugly.

NicJ said...

Do something, Orel!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh crap.

karina said...

Everyone is entitled to have his own opinion. Let's keep up with the game

NicJ said...

I never really liked A.J. Ellis.

MR.F said...

Loney can develop more power still. He's young enough that he can fill out a little.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Looks like real Mota paid the Dodgers a visit tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kuo's actually in a high-impact situation.

Orel said...

@Nic "Do something, Orel!"

EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!

NicJ said...

so much for not overusing Kuo.

Orel said...

Who wants #300?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think Kuo should try to throw a high-sailing fastball.

PenosCabell said...

If this score holds we may see 800 again

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit, almost foul.

Orel said...

I don't expect this score to hold.

PenosCabell said...

I agree Orel.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

One more strike.

Orel said...

Then one more out.

Orel said...

I liked Kuo's extra leg kick there!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like Ludwick can't Hong like a Chih Kuo.

PenosCabell said...

Kuo showing the heat

Dusto_Magnifico said...

atta kuo!

Orel said...

"Let's walk Pujols here."

PenosCabell said...

Torre abuse!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is gonna be bumpy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess Torre'd rather deal with Holliday.

PenosCabell said...

How long before Kuo's elbow goes out again?

PenosCabell said...

What?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They're loading the bases.

PenosCabell said...

Oh lord. Torre's got balls.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

"Loney can develop more power still. He's young enough that he can fill out a little."

He fills out any more and his defense will decline because he is already pretty heavy footed.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess Torre found a way around Holliday.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This talks ballsy to a whole other level.

PenosCabell said...

There's the sailing fastball.

NicJ said...

two intentional walks!
haha.

Orel said...

TWO IBBs?

Dusto_Magnifico said...

good moves to walk both Holliday and Pooholes.

PenosCabell said...

wow.

Orel said...

WOW

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUCK YEAH!

MR.F said...

Craziness.

Orel said...

That ringing coming from St. Louis is the sound of Joe Torre's brass balls.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess we can stop relying on Mota now.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

killer-kuo!

MR.F said...

Good work!

NicJ said...

Man Torre does suck.

PenosCabell said...

Torre is gonna abuse Kuo until the elbow gives.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Kuo is as good as he looked there, and Mota can figure himself out, and now with Sherrill, this is a killer bullpen.

karina said...

Wow, back to back IBB, it worked!

Dusto_Magnifico said...

Steiner just about fell off his chair calling that Kuo K on Ankle.

rbnlaw said...

Nothing to see here.

Orel said...

This will make a much better story if the Dodgers win.

Orel said...

How's it going, EK?

NicJ said...

Kuo needs a weeks rest.

PenosCabell said...

Broxton warming up?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

He's waiting. I can sense his presence...

NicJ said...

i havent been playing this 100's game. maybe ill just try to be an EK spoiler.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Loretta-fail.

Orel said...

Kuo really only faced three batters.

NicJ said...

1

Orel said...

singular sensation

NicJ said...

rbnlaw said...

@MLASF

??

Erin #2 said...

Waving through.......
300

NicJ said...

MR.F said...

300

NicJ said...

11

PenosCabell said...

300

rbnlaw said...

300

MR.F said...

AHHHH. I'm trying to shoot the moon.

Erin #2 said...

I did it again.......damn

Dusto_Magnifico said...

I still think Kuo is the one with the Brass Balls.

Orel said...

Everybody loses!

karina said...

Fanerman nailed it!

rbnlaw said...

Damn you fannerman!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That just screwed Blogger up.

Orel said...

Ha ha ha. It's like a feeding frenzy!

Keven C said...

I hope I can bowl a 300

NicJ said...

im just going to try to get the lowest score.

MR.F said...

I thought Nic J got comment 300.

MR.F said...

Oh now I'm just confused.

rbnlaw said...

FAIL. Nic had it in his grasp.

Orel said...

I have Fanerman as #301.

rbnlaw said...

OK, back to the bar for me.

NicJ said...

Call me the spoiler.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

clutch...

Erin #2 said...

I was 299

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We squeezed out more than 20 posts just for this.

NicJ said...

i need a cape and a mustache.

Orel said...

Like I said, feeding frenzy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let's go, J-Mac

Orel said...

Okay, back to the game. Good test for McDonald here.

Orel said...

Hmmm, showcasing McDonald?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good start. It looks like we're gonna have extras.

karina said...

Whoever who came up with this hundreds game is a genius, otherwise lots of people could be complaining. Now we complain, but laugh a little.

PenosCabell said...

maybe

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Did anyone listen to Dodger Talk last night? I can't stop listening with all the crazy trade suggestions.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

atta james. keep it up.

Orel said...

SF 2, PHI 1, top 3
COL split two with the Mets

PenosCabell said...

If it is a showcase, so far so good.

NicJ said...

we should trade a pallet of dodger dogs for The Doc.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

we face lowe on Saturday.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is a big out here. If J-Mac can't get him, it assures Pujols of getting a shot in the 10th.

Orel said...

Two pallets should do it.

Orel said...

Who's going against Lowe?

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Just catching up with the game. TWO INTENTIONAL WALKS TO GET TO ANKIEL. He must feel oh so good about himself right now. Especially when he proved Torre right.

Orel said...

Lugo is a pest.

Orel said...

Ankiel might even shave his pornstache in shame.

NicJ said...

should be wolf.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

wonder how many innings JMac will go.

Orel said...

The Bison roams!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hope dies hard in St. Louis.

Orel said...

Free baseball!

Orel said...

Could the guy in the Lexus commercial be any more smug? The answer is no.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is the last thing the Dodgers need after yesterday. At least there's a fresh arm in Elbert.

Orel said...

Sherrill joins the team tomorrow.

Orel said...

Then again, he won't be needed for mop-up duty. (Schmidt start.)

karina said...

What do you mean with "atta"?

Dusto_Magnifico said...

Steiner: "Lugo, a cardinal no go, in the Cardinal logo... oh its getting late."

What the hell is Steiner talking about?

Orel said...

@Karina " What do you mean with 'atta'?"

He means "atta boy, James." As in "way to go."

Orel said...

@Dusto "What the hell is Steiner talking about?"

Drugs?

Orel said...

Manny really needs to get back on that fertility drug.

Orel said...

LaRussa should intentionally walk the bases loaded here to one-up Torre.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Pitching change. More time for posts!

Dusto_Magnifico said...

"atta": its just what I say in my head, "atta-boy". I replace boy with the players name. In this case it was James, as in James McDonald (not Loney).

I'll quit expressing my every whimsical thought here. I know it gets annoying.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Didn't the Dodgers pursue this guy in the offseason?

Orel said...

Can't believe Russ Ortiz's release didn't make big headlines.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Orel, sometimes...dead is better

Orel said...

Reyes? Really?

karina said...

Dusto, i'm pretty sure when you say atta James, you don't mean King James ;)

Dusto_Magnifico said...

holy shiz, Reyes has been around.

NicJ said...

Dennys looks like he spends a lot of time in Dennys.

Orel said...

Take one for the team, Andre!

Orel said...

Good AB by Andre.

NicJ said...

maybe he meant Etta James

Dusto_Magnifico said...

BB- atta-Andre... ok it sounds kinda weird. I just dont know what else to say.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

6 straight balls.

Orel said...

Atta batta!

Dusto_Magnifico said...

"At Last"

Orel said...

Molina: "Throw strikes."

Orel said...

Ethier's not going anywhere.

NicJ said...

Haha, dusto.

Orel said...

Beard bop!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Beard's on fire!

Orel said...

Two on, one out!

Orel said...

I sense EK circling the thread.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let's go, Loney.

(clap, clap, clap-clap-clap)

Orel said...

NO DP JAMES

karina said...

At last
my love has come along
my lonely days over
and life is like a song
Ooh, yeah, yeah
At last
the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
the night I looked at you
I found a dream
that I could speak to
A dream that I
can call my own
I found a thrill
to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Ohh, yeah, yeah
You smile
you smile
Ooh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
for you are mine at last

You all have a knack to stick songs in my head!

Orel said...

That's a tough pitch.

Orel said...

Knack? "My Sharona"?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

No DP here!

Dusto_Magnifico said...

cough... double.. cough.. play... cough...

Orel said...

Nice baserunning!

NicJ said...

If dusto was singing that song it would be.

"My Loney days are over"

Orel said...

Only Molina makes that play even close.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

His Loney days never began at all.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

phew... maybe we'll get lucky and he will hit his typical slow roler to second.

Orel said...

Blogger is sluggish.

Orel said...

Just a blooper, James.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is tense.

Orel said...

Game or 100SS?

Orel said...

shit

karina said...

My Sharona reminds me of "Reality Bites" and people dancing in a mini market randomly.

Orel said...

400
