Game 133 Thread: Sept 1 vs. Asps. Very Dangerous. You Go First, 7p

Vicente Padilla (9-6, 4.86) vs. Yusmeiro Petit (3-8, 5.59).

COMMENTS: Pretty Boy Padilla takes on Little Prince Petit in another game the Dodgers should win. Will they win? That's another matter altogether. New acquisition Jon Garland will be in uniform for the Dodgers since all he has to do is switch uniforms and dugouts. Do you think he's still staying at the hotel with the rest of his Arizona teammates? That could be a little awkward. Jim Thome figured to be with the White Sox in Minnesota yesterday when he was traded, but he might make tonight's game if he doesn't have any layovers en route to L.A. His mere presence would certainly be a boost for the Dodgers, who are desperately in need of some offensive consistency. After all, Ronnie Belliard can't do it all by himself.

Dusty Baker said...

Hoffmann DFA'd.

Nic j said...

When are the dodgers just going to give up on repko?

Dusty Baker said...

Repko boot is probably imminent.

Dusty Baker said...

No wait, it was Hoffmann instead of Repko, surprising many.

Josh S. said...

Hoffmann before Repko? Boo-urns.

JuanLove said...

Hello again Scott Elbert, Jason Repko, and AJ Ellis

JuanLove said...

Indians called up Carlos Santana.

o.O

rbnlaw said...

Should the Dodgers send Repko to the Snakes for Garland. Do we need a light hitting, injury prone outfielder named Jason? I mean other than Werth and his annoying "Y" in his name.

Why DFA Hoffman? He seemed tradable.

rbnlaw said...

I always thought Santana was overrated as a guitarist. A little self-indulgent.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

In honor of Padilla, I will be drinking Tecate tonight (they didn't have any Nicaraguan beer at the market)

Dusty Baker said...

I was in tha heezy when Hoffmann hit his first, and now seemingly only, HR for us.

JuanLove said...

actually, i dont think he did.

i just read someone's comment somewhere else lol

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe they'll have some Nicaraguan brew in my bourgeois seats tonight.

KempKershaw said...

JuanLove- According to this he wasn't called up. I want to see him when he is called up, hopefully I won't have to wait until next year. Ned, Ned, Ned.

Dusty Baker said...

JL-

Who is he? What did he did - or not?

Mr. Customer said...

Going to the game tonight on Neeebs' dime (Thanks for that!)

JuanLove said...

ok. Santana did NOT get called up.


as for the game, Loney 8th, nice.
i expect some awesomeness, and then tomorrow he's back to 5th and sucking again

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

The porn 'stach'ed one got called up for the Rox today

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

Ronnie Belliard can, nay, will do it all by himself!

Neeebs said...

Mr. C: Don't forget to deliver me a victory in abstentia!

Neeebs said...

I would put ODog back at the two spot and move everyone else down one notch.

Mr. Customer said...

Neeebs,

I'll do what needs to be done. I want retribution for last nights debacle

Steve Sax said...

I hope the Snakes' starter has a Petit outing.

karina said...

I dig every Indiana Jones pic i can see. Thanks.

karina said...

The pitching match up could be Cornholio vs. Maracucho (Petit is from the same place i am)

koufax said...

giants lose complete game 2 hitter for hamels

Nic j said...

Uh oh, looks like hamels is coming into form.

karina said...

From DiamondLeung, who reblogged from a Giants blog:

“He is scheduled to pitch at China Basin against his former team, the Dodgers, on Sept. 13. Told that there’ll be 42,000 people there who hate the Dodgers, Penny smiled and said, “42,001.”

That's very classy, sir.

koufax said...

i was thinking the same thing nic, he threw 8 innings in his last start. but lets remember he was playing a terrible giants offense without molina and sandoval.

Steve Sax said...

Giants lost to the Phils

Nic j said...

Penny only counted himself as one person? He has lost all credibility.

Steve Sax said...

@karina: regarding diamond's post, I'd be shocked if the Giants will be able to field 42,000 fans on Sept. 13. They will be six games off the wild card by then.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

It's time for Dodger baseball

karina said...

@Sax well, maybe Giants fans will "hope" they can beat the Dodgers for a game or two. Maybe they are going to realize they won't have baseball for a very long time. Maybe with their "Beat LA" stupid chant they'll find some comfort they are wasting great pitchers. Who knows?

Nic j said...

the offensive slump ends tonight, and not for just this night, for good.

Ive been saying that every night but hey, its gotta work some time.`

koufax said...

padilla might want to consider throwing a few more strikes

Nic j said...

throw strikes, please.

Erin said...

Penny is a douche. He's one of those I tolerated when he was a Dodger, and then decided to just hate while he was in Boston. Now I can really, really hate him. I can't wait until we face him.

Keep it together, Padilla.

In other news, I'll be at the stadium for Garland's first start as a Dodger. My brother just got back from Afghanistan on Sunday, and since Thursday is Marine Appreciation Night, I figured that would be a good time to take him to a game.

koufax said...

great start

Nic j said...

looks like we are in for a long night.

koufax said...

nic,

u better be right about the offense by the looks of things

Nic j said...

i hope the strike zone is this tight for both teams.

koufax said...

gun said 99 on that pitch

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

So what do all those bloggers who were saying getting Garland for 5 starts have to say now?

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

*for 5 starts was a bad idea

karina said...

@Erin thanks for saying what i really wanted to say.I also want the Dodgers treat him like they were on batting practice.

You sure are thrilled your brother is home :)

Nic j said...

we're gonna run out of baseballs soon.

Nic j said...

alright dont let this douche burn us.

Nic j said...

asshole

koufax said...

vicente might reach his pitch limit this inning

koufax said...

jeff weaver get excited

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Is it too late to bring back Schmidt?

Erin said...

Padilla looks like Jemaine from "Flight of the Conchords." Has someone already noted that?

Nic j said...

37 pitches.

I guessing Petit gets out of the inning in 13 pitches

Erin said...

Here's a pic:

http://tinyurl.com/rxy9de

Nic j said...

Erin-Many, Many people have.

But there is always room for one more!

Erin said...

All right, so I'm behind. I bet Jemaine is much funnier.

Neeebs said...

Venezuela representing for AZ tonight. Somewhere Karina is smiling.

Mr. Customer said...

Ocean breeze finally kicked in, much better

Neeebs said...

El fuego

Nic j said...

im speechless.

Nic j said...

what the hell andre, petit's not a lefty

karina said...

Bison is on fire!

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Look how annoyed Tommy looks lol

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

There we go

Nic j said...

12 pitches, i overestimated the dodgers.

karina said...

Petit is the perfect pitcher to end a slump with.

Nic j said...

at least that gets the pitcher out of the way.

Nic j said...

padilla with the big stick!

Nic j said...

Russell with the Hustle.

Nic j said...

string some hits together and get a run? wow you can do that? i thought you had to hit it over the fence to score runs.

Dusty Baker said...

U aren't kidding Mr C. It was hot up in this bish to start the game. I didn't get to sit down before the bases were alreadyloaded. Hell I wasn't even loaded yet.

karina said...

Wait a minute, Kemp bunt?

Nic j said...

Kemp is just hotdogging it now.

Nic j said...

Kemp looks determined to make it to 30-30 this year.

karina said...

@Nic don't you love determination on baseball players?

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

@Dusty - where are these special VIP seats?

karina said...

I don't like Parra owning Padilla. It's not a good thing.

Nic j said...

Loney wastes a 3-0 count.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Gagne. They actually aren't anything special. Just pretty close to field between beard and manram.

I'm special though, for the record

Fred's Brim said...

nice catch by Roberts

Paul said...

No one has threatened cornholio since the first

Paul said...

Dusty.

I thought you would be next to Larry King.

Fred's Brim said...

AIR RAID!!!!

Paul said...

The Plane!!! The Plane!!!

Fred's Brim said...

haha the plane got stepped on by a snake

Fred's Brim said...

i like Vicente's blue glove - dont think i've seen one since Ramon Martinez

Fred's Brim said...

thank you V!
cmon Scotty - keep 'em at 1

Fred's Brim said...

damn cmon Scott, dont be afraid of these guys

Nic j said...

so is elbert going to give up a three run homer like the last time he pitched?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Strike the bum out!

karina said...

@Nic j don't call disgrace! just in case, you know...

Fred's Brim said...

he better not

karina said...

Strike him out or plunk him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Elbert, you suck.

Nic j said...

nice elbert, nice.

Fred's Brim said...

ok Scott, you were getting ground balls so that's ok, just bad luck. but remember the walk the next time Joe gives you a meaningful inning

ok Belli, finish this off

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking hell

Fred's Brim said...

christ how the hell did that drop in like that?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I knew leaving O-Dog at second would haunt us.

Nic j said...

What the fuck is wrong with our bullpen.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hasn't everyone who's reached base done so with two strikes? WTF?

Fred's Brim said...

too many two strike, two out hits

Fred's Brim said...

ARRRRRGH this shit drives me up the fucking wall

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GET A FRICKIN' OUT

Nic j said...

i guess among all the excitement of the trades didnt change the fact that we still suck with RISP.

Nic j said...

kemp and ethier have been carrying the team for a few weeks. Others need to start helping out.

Fred's Brim said...

please take more pitches

Fred's Brim said...

damn that wasnt a strike, but he's been calling those all night

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

2OM?

Paul said...

My god i can't stand listening to these diamondback idiots.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That ump certainly doesn't want you to wait to find out what the call is.

Nic j said...

if we score anymore runs tonight, ill be surprised.

Fred's Brim said...

keep it tied, Belli

Fred's Brim said...

ok lets get some frikkin runs. James just get on base, wouldya?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What was Loney swinging at?

Fred's Brim said...

wow that popout almost made it as high as the 2nd deck

Dusto_Magnifico said...

FREE JIM THOME!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yes...Yes! Cower before the might of Slappy McPopup!

Paul said...

We know furcal won't bunt because he only bunts for hits per torre.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DOUBLE!

Nic j said...

if we waste 2nd and 3rd with one out Im gonna go ape shit.

Paul said...

Well good thing he didn't bunt but the pitcher had to throw a fastball

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They IBB Kemp

Steve Sax said...

Pierre PH walk, Plaschke sheds tear of joy

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Sax - Are you implying that Plaschke has feelings?

Fred's Brim said...

wow another walk to get to Manny. he's gotta be fuming

Fred's Brim said...

or Ethier, sorry

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@FB - Ethier's up now, not Manny.

Nic j said...

im praying for a WP right now.

Nic j said...

i can go for a walk too.

Nic j said...

YAY!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WALK!

Fred's Brim said...

i'll take it!

Nic j said...

just a long fly ball now manny, youve been doing that all night.

Steve Sax said...

Can someone pls describe Raffy's double; why couldn't slappy score from first?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Sax - It was a dunker double.

Nic j said...

the left fielder cut it off

Steve Sax said...

@mr la sf: you're right, that was my error on plaschke. He just had something in his eye.

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo, one out. Have faith.

Paul said...

Think manny swings on the first pitch?

Nic j said...

Manny's slump started with a grand slam.

Maybe it can end with one.

Nic j said...

god damn it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Manny, you suck

Fred's Brim said...

wow manny just isnt seeing the ball well

Nic j said...

two thirds of our lineup sucks.

Steve Sax said...

My god could that closeup of Boyer had gotten any closer?

Why is Manny getting caught looking like every f'ing game???!!!

Fred's Brim said...

work the walk, Casey!

Fred's Brim said...

wow that was close

Nic j said...

people are chanting Casey now?

wow.

Fred's Brim said...

Casey swung at ball 4 there

Nic j said...

just when you think we have bottomed out...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I blame Manny.

Fred's Brim said...

i am sure I am seeing things negatively, but I can't remember the last time we had a hit in a situation like that

Steve Sax said...

Wow, that was a waste. Thome can't get here soon enough.

Fred's Brim said...

ok bullpen, do you have 2 clean innings in you?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

How have the majority of voters selected Belly 2.0?

karina said...

I'm not really that excited about Thome, to tell the truth.

Nic j said...

Young looks like he could be on the dodgers.

Fred's Brim said...

finish this, Tron

karina said...

Why the somber tone? the Dodgers are still winning.

It's official, i don't like that Ryal person.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Karina - But seriously, do you think that out of Belly 2.0, FJT, and Graceland, the first will make the biggest impact?

Fred's Brim said...

me neither, Karina. i dont expect him to be a savior, just a threat off the bench. he's always reminded me of JD Drew - he seems to prefer taking a walk in a rbi situation

this ump is no good

Fred's Brim said...

HOLY COW! what a catch!

Josh S. said...

ANDRE!

That usually happens TO us!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GOLD-FUCKING GLOVE

Nic j said...

: O

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Andre was playing for the Sox, that would be a #1 web gem. But he'll just have to settle for honorable mention.

Fred's Brim said...

if Andre was playing for the Sox he would have tumbled face first into the bullpen on that catch

Steve Sax said...

Wonderful lead-saving catch by Ethier. Well done.

Let's get us some insurance runs and take this goatee off the mound.

Steve Sax said...

HR for Loney, right here. Any takers?

(kidding)

Steve Sax said...

even Vin is mocking the Dodgers' lack of power

Fred's Brim said...

Sax, what is this "insurance run" of which you speak?

Steve Sax said...

almost a comebacker, but in fact a single. Way to go, James

Steve Sax said...

@fred's brim, I hear you. It's like we're afraid of using up runs that we want to use in the post-season.

Rockies won btw.

Fred's Brim said...

Belliard seems to hit the ball hard when he makes contact

karina said...

3 outs to go.

Fred's Brim said...

uhoh Broxton hit the ump - he's not gonna another close strike tonight

Nic j said...

Haha. Man that looked like it hurt. You can tell the ump didn't want to rub it. Be a man!

Nic j said...

Maybe blue will open up the zone because he wants to end the game and put some ice on that.

Fred's Brim said...

haha yeah - i know I would!

Fred's Brim said...

please no walks, JB :(

Fred's Brim said...

wow that was nasteee

ball 4, but nasteeeee

rbnlaw said...

Scrolling through the comments and saw Penny's idiotic comment about 42,001 Dodger haters in attendance.

He obviously forgot the number of Dodger fans who go up to SF for games. There should be at least 15,000 Penny haters available for comments.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey Erin,

The same "Don't stop believing" dancer guy that was at the cubs game back the last two nights.

rbnlaw said...

Really need to get Upton.

Fred's Brim said...

rats, that was bad luck

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a weird roll

rbnlaw said...

Of all the crappy hits. . .

Fred's Brim said...

aww crap no home runs, please

Nic j said...

I think were gonna need a bigger boat.

Wait that's not the right movie.

Fred's Brim said...

JUpton steals 2nd, Reaynold can tie it with a single

damn it's never easy

Fred's Brim said...

and he pops out to end it

WHEW!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We Win!

rbnlaw said...

Maintain on the Rox.
Up to 6.5 on the Gnats.
Brad Penny; still a douche.

Steve Sax said...

Post-Game Thread is up. Paychecks came through, so we can afford to keep the SoSG air conditioning on after hours in the office. So we're on it tonight!

Good night everybody!

Fred's Brim said...

gonna get an easy win tomorrow, I can feel it

gnite all

Steve Sax said...

I know, everyone wants to get the two comments left for 200.

Steve Sax said...

So here it is.

200.
