Game 160 Thread: Oct. 2 vs. Brockies, 7p

Randy Wolf (11-6, 3.22) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (14-12, 3.52).

Hello, this is Kent Brockman. In sports news, the Dodgers are ending their season with a meaningless series against Colorado, since the Dodgers long ago clinched the division —

one moment, I'm getting a note from our producers —

What? You've got to be kidding. They lost three of four to the Pirates? And got swept by the Padres? What the hell is wrong with these ****ers? No, I won't watch my language. I don't care if we're still on the air —

sheesh

time to cut down the swing

Mr. Customer said...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. That boy ain't right.

Nic j said...

Looked like o dog was giving manny a pep talk after that last k.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Mr. C - Yep

Nic j said...

Rockies not warming anyone in the pen.

Fred's Brim said...

Tronny, where's the beard?

Delino DeShields said...

Boos for manny. Damnnnnnnn

Steve Dittmore said...

RISP tonight 0-5
RISP since win @ PIT 2-26 (including tonight)

karina said...

How many pitchers can say they struck out Manny Ramirez three times in a game?

Most wouldn't include Ubaldo Jimenez in that list.

Mr. Customer said...

@sd

Yipes!

Fred's Brim said...

wow on the crappy mlb.tv reception, i thought that was a double

Nic j said...

Manny doesn't hit
ubaldo well ever he is like 1-12

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Tron, you dumbass.

Dusty Baker said...

Tweet from JoshS:

"Dodger Stadium PA played Yackity Sax after Manny struck out. Fitting."

Fred's Brim said...

Tronny, cut the shit!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And that is why you don't walk the opposing pitcher.

(arm falls off)

Fred's Brim said...

we've only hit one home run in the last week, and that was the semi-meaningless homer from Belli2 against the clincher vs the Pirates on Saturday

Fred's Brim said...

that was strike three! dammit

Fred's Brim said...

phew!

Mr. Customer said...

*whew*

Dusty Baker said...

We're playing with brann here.

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

The collective exhale, apparently.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Too much brann and you'll get the home run trots.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's get some runs now. Maybe a couple of hits too while were at it.

Dusty Baker said...

Well, is it "phew" or "whew" guys?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Matt's on the .300 fence. He needs to get a hit.

Steve Dittmore said...

Got a feeling about this inning. Baseball cliches follow...

Jimenez is getting up there in pitches (97)
Third time through the order
Jimenez is tired from running the bases

Mr. Customer said...

@db

regional dialect.

Delino DeShields said...

They just played a back in black / we will rock you mash up. Our own sax introduced me to mashups. It all comes full circle.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Matty!

Fred's Brim said...

a little of both? do we have to choose?

Fred's Brim said...

take the walk!

Fred's Brim said...

robbed!!

Steve Dittmore said...

MLB Network replayed Finley's walk-off Grand Slam... 5 years ago today

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh jeez.

Mr. Customer said...

Ball 4, Matty.

karina said...

I saw SAFE, what did you see?

easy, Bison.We need you

Fred's Brim said...

Joe, tell him he's got some crud on his lip

Delino DeShields said...

I missed post 227 by 2.
And kemp is equally as pissed.

Dusty Baker said...

SAFE! According to the replay.

Fred's Brim said...

this is where James doubles with the ghost runner on 1st

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This inning went nowhere fast.

karina said...

From Uncle Owen's "twitter"

"I understand retired Stormtroopers become sport referees #JobsWithBadEyeSight"

Mr. Customer said...

Open the blast doors! Open the blast doors!

Fred's Brim said...

sheeeeit

PenosCabell said...

OY VEY.

I don't know how much more of this I can take.

Mr. Customer said...

lotta whiffs out there.

Fred's Brim said...

stay with us Penos! it'll be worth it!

Nic j said...

10 K's in 6 innings. Unreal.

Dusty Baker said...

When was the last fun game we had? Fun to watch, fun to win, great plays, confident pitching, offense always in charge, etc.? I don't count the random blowout win vs. a bad team. I guess back on that road trip where we beat AZ and COL 2-3 each, maybe?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ARGH

karina said...

Good pitching and great defense are useless if they don't score runs. Guys, can you give us 2 or 3 runs?

Fred's Brim said...

here's Joe's new favorite...

karina said...

@Mr Customer that was very funny!

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I do what I can.

Lead-off doubles, however, are not.

Fred's Brim said...

what happened? why is Belli in?

Fred's Brim said...

oh - i missed the double

karina said...

I hope Elbert is not on the postseason roster.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's game.

Dusty Baker said...

BREAKING NEWS FROM JOSH S:

"Ate 5 dogs, a nachos, 3 sodas, and I have an unopened peanuts."

He's in the AYCE section and not paying retail.

Fred's Brim said...

dammitalltohell

chexxum said...

I hate Tulowitzki :(

Mr. Customer said...

I think I've seen this episode.

drewdez said...

aaaarrrrrgggghhh

Steve Sax said...

I can't believe we are about to lose our fifth in a row. Talk about no momentum, going into the playoffs.

As the wild card.

Fred's Brim said...

agreed, karina - he's good but he isn't ready

Dusty Baker said...

@ Karina

"I hope Elbert is not on the postseason roster."

Me, too. But at this rate, I actually hope no one is on the postseason roster, except maybe FBR. Or hell, even FB.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't remember what winning feels like. Hell, I can't remember what scoring more than one run feels like.

Dusty Baker said...

I seriously can't imagine that tomorrow night's game will actually mean something to me. It was always going to be a victory lap kind of thing, not me on the edge of my seat kind of thing.

Plus it's team calendar night.

Dusty Baker said...

MLASF-

Is this what it feels like when doves cry?

Fred's Brim said...

i remember when we used to get big hits like that. I hope we see that again this season

Nic j said...

And that's the ballgame.

Steve Sax said...

@dustyBaker 9:33p: hey Josh S,is that unopened bag of nuts = a scrotum?

I'm sorry, but this loss, the first I've actually watched in a week, has me very shriveled.

Like a scrotum.

Paul said...

I really am out of curse words guys. I don't know what to say but Guinness milkshake where have you gone?

Fred's Brim said...

DB, my personal policy of not walking pitchers or swinging at ball 4 in the dirt would help us tremendously

Dusty Baker said...

Josh notes that he actually ate TWO nachos, not just the one. Point well taken.

Mr. Customer said...

@paul

It's time to get into the multi-lingual cursing.

Try Dutch and German. They've got lots.

Dusty Baker said...

We are dishonoring Tommy tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

i dont know where karina went, but i'll say it on her behalf: this game aint over!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Dusty - I could just imagine Tommy's post-game rant.

"YOU GUYS MAKE ME SICK."

Steve Sax said...

If we lose,I blame that horrible God Bless America twin set. They would have been awful as a solo artist; as a twin set, it was like double-stereo HELL.

Mr. Customer said...

In honor of Lasorda, can we dub this night bevaquesque?

Fred's Brim said...

i bet Josh's pockets are stuffed with jalepenos

karina said...

@Fred's Brim here i am! biting my tongue game is not over, but i'm afraid someone calls me delusional

Delino DeShields said...

Lap still wet. Fans still angry. Hits still absent.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Delino - You just described Kevin Federline's rap career in nine words.

Paul said...

Every word in German kind of sounds like a curse word. Like Troncoso sounds like a bad word in Spanish. The dodgers are a bunch of troncosos. I know that probably makes sense only in my depressed mind.

Fred's Brim said...

haha MLASF, post of the year!

Fred's Brim said...

Russ!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You know things are bad when Russell Martin's getting the big hits.

PenosCabell said...

Russell....Hell yeah!

Let's get something going!

Dusty Baker said...

Road Loney!

karina said...

See? game is not over!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Whaa!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@FB - I do what I can.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

"every word in German sounds like a curse word."

Ain't it great?

Fred's Brim said...

take the walk!

chexxum said...

Russ's homer made up for that shitty GBA rendition.


seriously, they could have done a harmony or something, no need for both people to sing the exact same thing.

Mr. Customer said...

eyechart! eyechart!

Fred's Brim said...

Mr C, you are such a glockenspiel

Dusty Baker said...

Pls let us clinch this with a HR off Joe Beimel.

Paul said...

If this game isn't over I will drink a king cobra milkshake.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, Dougie. Work the walk.

Dusty Baker said...

In German, a lullaby sounds like "Let's invade Poland!"

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

Du hast nicht einen sehr unangenehmen Geruch!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Eye-chart works the walk. Perhaps that will be his greatest moment as a Dodger?

Fred's Brim said...

haha the Eyechart Post-Walk batflip*



*patent pending

Dusty Baker said...

Paul said:

"If this game isn't over I will drink a king cobra milkshake."

Nice! *makes cobra sign*

I've had a Colt 45 float before, for the record.

Fred's Brim said...

Mr C, I have no idea what you said, but you, sir, have crossed the line!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This feels like one of those grind-'em-out innings.

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

Maginot?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There goes who? Hu?

Fred's Brim said...

that was ball four

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Raffy keeps things alive!

Dusty Baker said...

Am I going to make a pitching change? you bet.

chexxum said...

FICKEN SIE JA, GEHEN SIE FURCAL!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The robed(?),hand-cutting, lefty-handling, head-bobbling, sideburn-wearing reliever is in now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, you shmucks!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only Adam Morrison can make the fu-man-chu work.

Steve Sax said...

Joe Beimel.

Great.

GIDP right here.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Take that, ugly!

Mr. Customer said...

woot!

Paul said...

King Cobra!!!

Mr. Customer said...

@chexxum

"Fick du auch, Steiniger!" also accepted.

Fred's Brim said...

keep it going, you schmucks!

chexxum said...

oh man, Tracy's trying for the "most relievers used in an inning" record...again.

Delino DeShields said...

Game is riveting. Dodgers fans hate all former dodgers. Beer is settling into pants. And everyone in here wishes manny wakes up.

Steve Sax said...

@mr la sf, your k-fed comment literally rocked me with laughter. Ms. Sax liked it too. Well played.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time for Manny to earn his paycheck.

Fred's Brim said...

Mr C, I had to look that up, and that's way too French for my liking

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Outfield's deep. A shot to the power-alleys should score Furcal.

Dusty Baker said...

Delino-

If this goes into extra innings, and beer sales are stopped, you can always squeeze out your pants for that last half cup of warm Bud Light.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Sax - Thanks for the compliment.

Steve Sax said...

@delino, I missed a post, why are your pants wet with beer?

Dodgers, gehen Sie!

Orel said...

Glad to see the stadium on its feet.

Big hack by Manny.

Fred's Brim said...

just a single Manny!

Steve Sax said...

Mr la sf, I'm still laughing. Despite the fact they're still losing and Manny looks lost.

Dusty Baker said...

If Manny would have made contact, the ball would be in my cactus garden.

Fred's Brim said...

wow

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Manny's getting no lee-way with the fans, and rightfully so.

Orel said...

whiff

Dusty Baker said...

Wow, even the rich seats are booing Manny, not just the cholo seats around the edges.

Delino DeShields said...

Attention
Golden sombrero fitting in men's wear

Orel said...

DO IT FOR MARY HART

Steve Sax said...

What the fuck Manny, you gonna hit one sometime soon?

And don't you start, Jon Weisman. This is a bad showing for our favorite dreadlocked one. Don't try and talk me out of it.

Orel said...

c'mon Bison

Mr. Customer said...

@FB

If there's a line being crossed in German, the Maginot is the first that comes to mind.

just sayin'.

Orel said...

shit

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

Steve Sax said...

Dammit

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There went that. Dammit, Manny.

Dusty Baker said...

JoshS sayeth (re: Manny):

"You can't spell FUCKKKK without 4 Ks."

Mr. Customer said...

shit

Paul said...

So you are telling me there is a chance.

Steve Sax said...

And don't try and placate me with this El Pollo Loco commercial. I'm fucking pissed off goddammit.

Delino DeShields said...

What's so toubling... Manny got the golden sombrero in like 15 pitches

Mr. Customer said...

@dd

Dude looks fucking awful.

Dusty Baker said...

Manny has 8 Ks in a row now.

K K K K K K K K

Fred's Brim said...

switching to the Johnny Walker

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You can't spell Manny Ramirez without K.


Wait, yes you can! Then there really is no excuse for this!

Mr. Customer said...

@db

Jesus H. Christ! Is there even a name for that?!

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, FBR. Shut 'em down.

Dusty Baker said...

4Ks - golden sombrero
8Ks - golden shower

Mr. Customer said...

I hereby dub 8 straight Ks the adamantium sombrero.

Delino DeShields said...

Dusty... I'm way ahead of you
This is an awesome game. And agonziing

Fred's Brim said...

Flat Breezy's name is really George Sherrill?

Fred's Brim said...

(i kid)

Dusty Baker said...

FB-

I accidentally called Sherrill by his given name the other day, and Mrs. Dusty asked who he was and when we picked him up. She just went straight to FB/R after we traded for him, I guess, based on my references.

Orel said...

I think Broxton will pitch the 9th no matter what.

Mr. Customer said...

fbr dealing.

Fred's Brim said...

hehe Mr C I like that

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The only way Andre's getting another crack at it is if the Dodgers can get a runner without erasing him.

Don't stop believing.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

Of course! There has to be a man on for a true walk-off.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Manny and Boras opt out during the off-season, my jaw will drop to the floor.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB: it still sound funny to me to say his real name. You may as well be talking about a senator from Indiana in the 60s or the custodian at your elementary school

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@FB - He certainly looks like a janitor with his Youkilis beard.

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

Kinda sounds like a shop teacher name to me.

Paul said...

I am taking a shot of something for good luck. Ummmmm I drink my catholic Irish whiskey but take shots of my Protestant Irish whiskey. Bushmills it is.

Orel said...

That pitch was higher than Snoop Dogg.

Mr. Customer said...

patience.

Orel said...

Crowd watching with their hearts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The crowd is trying to will fly-balls into being homers.

Mr. Customer said...

SO CLOSE

Dusty Baker said...

Saying Sherrill's real name makes it sound like he's in trouble. Like how my mother would call me by first, middle, and last name, ultra formally, when I was in trouble.

Orel said...

Everybody is swinging through 86-89-mph fastballs. Doesn't seem right.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Beard gets himself a golden sombrero.

Mr. Customer said...

blake looks a little rusty.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It rests on Martin to do something this inning.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's a dead-end with Huston Street.

Paul said...

I got a feeling that the 9th is going to be a good 9th.

Trying to stay positive even if it physically hurts me.

fanerman said...

At the very least, don't admit defeat! We have 3 outs.

Mr. Customer said...

yuck

chexxum said...

I also have a good feeling about this 9th, and I'm the least optimistic person ever!

Dusty Baker said...

Smear some soft-serv on the plate so Broxton can find it, JMart.

Steve Sax said...

This is painful.

Nic j said...

Plenty of tulo is a puto chants in the stadium.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Broxton K's the side. Three outs left to score a run.

Paul said...

Get up you son of a bitch! Cause Mickey loves ya.

Mr. Customer said...

Ok, kids. Time to get busy.

Paul said...

Hey yo Rockies. I didn't hear no bell. One more at bat.
