Game 104 Thread: August 1 @ Braves, 1p

Randy Wolf (5-5, 3.43) vs. Derek Lowe (10-7, 4.20).

COMMENTS: After a 15-10 July, the Dodgers look to head into the final third of the season with a fresh chaw of whoopass tucked firmly between cheek and gum. Standing in their way today is old friend Lowe, renowned for his ability to induce ground balls. Wolf has been good for at least six innings in 18 of his 22 starts this season. So don't expect many overpowering fastballs; do expect wormkillers and craftiness.

(100SS. Game 5. You gotta be in it to win it!)

FOX games have been good to Manny. Look for him to break out of his slump today.

Paul said...

One thing is for sure is D. lowe will look like he has ran a marathon after the first inning.

Dusty Baker said...

Man-ny! Man-ny! Man-ny!

Just trying to drown out the boos.

Dusty Baker said...

Umps totally f'd up that call. Dude was 10 ft from where the ball hit inside the line and he missed it.

Booger said...

I agree, that was a BS call. he was right there too.

Erin #2 said...

Two down, one to go......

Erin #2 said...

Day ohhhhhhh

Dusty Baker said...

Live radio and the "live" TV broadcast are about 12 seconds apart. Can't listen to radio with TV on mute without being really confused.

Dusty Baker said...

You in HD today, Josh?

Erin #2 said...

What a lame version of "Charge"......

See, if I was at the game, someone from the other side would have just poured something on me...

Erin #2 said...

I can't get Vinnie on the radio during the day in Sacramento. I can only get him at night. So those who get to listen to him now, I'm very jealous!

Erin #2 said...

I like the fact that they referred to Dodgers as "dangerous".

Dusty Baker said...

Vin's not doing the game today since it's east of rockies. it's the regular innings 4-9 guys.

Erin #2 said...

Woot woot

Erin #2 said...

Oh that's right......

Well, it still better than listening to the TV.

Dusty Baker said...

Listening to my mother in law is better than listening to this TV broadcast crew.

Erin #2 said...

Try living in Sac and watching LA play SF on TV. I would rather listen to someone drag their fingers down a chalkboard.

Orel said...

Matt Kemp picked off first. TRADE HIM

Erin #2 said...

Well that was a quick at bat.....

Erin #2 said...

Boy Orel, you sure jumped quickly on Kemp there today! :)

Erin #2 said...

Do not walk him.......

Dusty Baker said...

Can we check the pine tar on LaRoche's bat?

Erin #2 said...

Good idea, lets do that....

Alex Cora said...

Are Lowe and Hughes still an item?

Alex Cora said...

Wow - I love this umps strikeout call - looks like Leslie Neilson in the Naked Gun. K K K K K K K ...

Alex Cora said...

That was strike 3 against chipper....booo ump!

Dusty Baker said...

Yanks getting crushed early on - CWS up 6-0.

Alex Cora said...

and it costs us a run - Hit the ump...

Paul said...

the umps hate us today

Dusty Baker said...

Two horrible calls so far. Thanks umps! Now you have Wolf all worked up and red and puffy, like D Lowe gets during warmups.

Dusty Baker said...

Throw at the ump's head.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stupid ump

Dusty Baker said...

Leadoff walk. Let's start something.

karina said...

Go Dodgers!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bases juiced for the Beard

Dusty Baker said...

Bases loaded, no outs.

Big bucks, no whammies!

Josh S. said...

Is this interview ever going to end?

Dusty Baker said...

*Tapping my Casey bobblehead*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good fundamentals from Blake. Sac fly, tie score.

Alex Cora said...

nice tied up

Dusty Baker said...

That JJJJJjjjjjjJJJJ-named pitcher dude was more interesting than the broadcast crew, sadly.

I Alivandi said...

Casey was choked up on his bat. Nice to see that he is trying to break out the old fashioned way.

Alex Cora said...

yeah!!! FJL

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney-power!

Dusty Baker said...

Nice heads up to avoid getting hit with the ball, Manny!

Dusty Baker said...

"Belisario close to returning to Dodgers"

-Ken Gurnick

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And to think people wanted to resign Lowe

I Alivandi said...

Eat that Dusto.

BTW, nice to see Mark Grace notice that Manny can still run.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dusty, it could be worse. It could be McCarver in the booth.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Solid contact from Martin, he just hit it right at Prado.

Dusty Baker said...

You should get minus pts just for mentioning McCarver. ;-)

Sew what just happened as soon as you brought his name up?

karina said...

Loney RBI, that's why he's King James

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good inning.

Orel said...

Hey, we're winning! I'm off to the gym, so I won't be around for some of the hundreds.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The answer to the trivia question is Campy

Orel said...

Or will I...?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At the rate this thread is going, it'll be miracle if it even reaches 100.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wolf's in trouble.

karina said...

Prado is very fast, he could tie the game with almost anything.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Crap.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ANDRE!

Steve Sax said...

Andre dinger! 3-2 la

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp is due.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp just can't hold up on those sliders.

Dusty Baker said...

Manny, of all people, is reeeeallly due.

Steve Sax said...

Well it looks a little warm out there in Atlanta

Steve Sax said...

David Ross with his third K of the game

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wolf really wants a no-decision.

Alex Cora said...

Dammit Martin!!!

Steve Sax said...

Martin singlehandedly throws laRoche into scoring position, so why make that throw?

And he fricking drops the ball on an easy tag!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nevermind. He wants a loss.

Alex Cora said...

Crap o la.

Steve Sax said...

If we lose, this is all Martin's fault

Dusty Baker said...

I told everyone we should have thrown Martin in for that Pods trade.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Martin screwed us over.

Fred's Brim said...

unacceptable, Russ

Fred's Brim said...

here's your chance to make up for it, kid

Fred's Brim said...

that's not what I meant

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, it's the guy who spouts crap.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

O-Dog double!

Steve Sax said...

If woody had gone to the police , this would never have happened

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fuck

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, Russ, this is on your ass. I'm turning your bobblehead around backward - you're in trouble.

Come on, Doyers...don't ruin te rest of my evening. I mean, um, not that I would let a mere game dictate my mood. *Looks down at shoes*

Erin #2 said...

This is the slowest moving game...

Erin #2 said...

Thank god we are out of that inning....

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good inning for Kuo

Erin #2 said...

I say that we get at least three runs next inning....

Erin #2 said...

Doot doot doot doot

CHARGE!

*Does Wave*
Up down Up down Up down.

Erin #2 said...

I just need to get twelve posts......muhahahhhahaha!!

Oh...yeah.....GO Dodgers!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

No! No wave! If you launch a beachball I'm texting security.

Erin #2 said...

Drats.......one down.......

Erin #2 said...

If I buy you a beer then can I launch a beach ball???

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Two out

Erin #2 said...

*pulls out beachball*

Hmmm, its deflated....

*Looks at Dusty and grins*

Should I?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That inning was craptacular.

Fred's Brim said...

damn - gonna need some late inning magic today. gotta keep it 4-3 though

karina said...

Manny has to be injured.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Mota-Time

Dusty Baker said...

I am always bribe-able with beer.

Currently having Pyramid Curve Ball Summer Ale.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

100

Erin #2 said...

100

Erin #2 said...

DAMN

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sweet

Erin #2 said...

I have Coors Light or Moosehead...

Dusty Baker said...

When is this 100s stuff over? Can't wait. It's like an online version of the beach ball.

Erin #2 said...

I'm so far behind that I'll never catch up......

Dusty Baker said...

Please don't subject anyone to Coors Light!

karina said...

@Dusty Baker: 5 more games to go

karina said...

i just decided i love Alyssa Millano.

Dusty Baker said...

Only half way through? Arrrrrggghhhh...

Erin #2 said...

We had a BBQ last weekend and I had a large variety but that's what is left. The guiness and the St. Pauli was killed watching last nights game.....

Erin #2 said...

Thank god he caught that.....

Dusty Baker said...

@ E2

That's more like it!

Dusty Baker said...

I decided I love Alyssa Millano a LONG time ago.

Erin #2 said...

Down to the last out......

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking Martin

Erin #2 said...

Damn.......that sucked!!!

See ya tomorrow......

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus christ Kemp, swing at the f'in ball! It was right down the middle with two out, two strikes, top of 9th. What are you waiting for, a tee?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Until a PGT is put up, this thread is open. I bet I could make it to 200.

Chad'sKindaRad said...

pierre > manny

karina said...

That statement is kinda outrageous

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Dodgers must do well on ESPN tomorrow, or they will be laughing stocks on the entire East Coast.

karina said...

They will...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Still nothing

Orel said...

Last call!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nothing doing.

Orel said...

You're right. PGT up.

Ken said...

I feel if they intentionally walk Chipper 4 times tomorrow, we will be set.
