Game 115 Thread: August 12 @ Giants, 12:45p

Jeff Weaver (5-4, 3.90) vs. Tim Lincecum (12-3, 2.20).

Remember how you felt Sunday night? Compare that to how you feel now. Big difference, no? Certainly the Dodgers can relate, and hopefully that attitude shift will pay off against Lincecum. The Dodgers are throwing their entire bullpen against Mr. Cy Young today, including 25-year-old knuckleballer Charlie Haeger, who took Eric Stults' place on the roster.

Joe Torre, on catching the knuckleball:

My catching a knuckleball was so good the Braves went out and got Bob Uecker, which hastened the end of his playing career and he became a broadcaster. I feel responsible for making him a broadcaster.

Good luck today, Russell!

And a note from Ken Rosenthal at

One scout views the Giants' red-hot Eugenio Velez the same way he viewed the Marlins' Emilio Bonifacio early in the season. Velez, the scout says, is feasting on fastballs. Once opponents start throwing him breaking balls, his party will end.

Mota, you fucking fuckstick. What was that mechanical thing you fixed? Re-fix it? God DAMMIT.

We didn't really want the suicide rate in SF to go up, did we?

Besides that, Timmah didn't beat us.
Mota did.

this cycle of violence with mota has to end. that sucks, we were playing with house money though.

0-2, high fastball over the middle of the plate, I hate you Mota :(.

rbnlaw said...

I'm going in the pool.

Dusty Baker said...

There went my day.

Now I have to go home and watch with Mrs. Dusty and pretend I don't know the outcome because she wanted me to Tivo it and watch with her. Awesome wife, bad husband, and I have to put on a nice face...

Orel said...

Family first, DB! PGT up.

Its hard to be upset about a 2-1 series win. Lincecum didn't get a win and we pushed the giants back 1 full game.

Dusty Baker said...

Lincecum didn't get the win, and as childish as it is, I will relish that fact the rest of the evening and likely into some of tomorrow.
