NLCS Game 4 Thread: Phillies @ Giants, 4.30p

Joe Blanton vs. Madison Bumgarner.

COMMENTS: Everybody, sing along!

Hey, hey hey

It gives me pause
Your fans throw snowballs at Santa Claus
And the last two years you beat us
Kept us out of the elitist games of all

I feel no mirth
Watching home runs mashed by Jayson Werth
And not to be dogmatic
But I can't stomach that Phanatic
Standing tall

Hey there Phillies
Yeah, it's kinda silly
That I'm standing here, and say sincere
That you're the team that I've got to cheer

(But) I'd be bumming
If the next round coming
Was a World Series starring...
The Giants

I'm a scratch for this game again. Heading out for my Gramps 85th. This time I am leaving my Holy Grail of Haterade with Meanxie,karen and karina. Bring the HATE,Ladies. I'll do some shots from my gramps Brandy bottle for everyone.

hateHateHATEFUCKINGHATE

Do something Ryan Howard or I'll shove sandbags up your nostrils, you adonis you.

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Fucking Sadison Asscollection.

karen said...

Well, I used to be a Huey Lewis fan, but after his gnat ass kissing he can go to hell with the rest of the orange and black wearing, rag waving bastards.

karen said...

C'mom Phillies. Channel your 2008 and 2009 mojo

MR. F said...

When someone told me about the Ashley Madison website and I looked it up on Wikipedia, I found out that Madison is one of the most common GIRLS names given to babies.

Come on you fucking Phillies. You cannot lose to fucking Madison Bumfuck.

HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE

Steve Sax said...

I can't believe Chase Utley (and his .091 average) is still batting second.

Steve Sax said...

Bumgarner: 15 pitches, 9 balls (currently pitching to Howard)

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Blanton sucks.

karen said...

I can't stand to see gnat fans happy.

karen said...

Doesn't Freddie Sanchez know he's supposed to be in a wheelchair?

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

I hate balk rules, but I suppose I should dig them up to see if Rollins is right.

karen said...

MrLASG--When you read the balk rules, let me know whether JRoll was right or not

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

MLB Rule 8.05(a) - It is a balk when:

The pitcher, while touching his plate, makes any motion naturally associated with his pitch and fails to make such delivery

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

It's definitely gray, but I think it could be a balk since Asscollection when through his motions and then threw to first.

karen said...

Blanton is pitching like my mother

Dusty Baker said...

THROW AT CODY ROSS' FUCKIN HEAD!

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

*went

karen said...

Good call MrLASG!!

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

I've read more of the rule book than Don Mattingly!

karen said...

Good play by JRoll

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

We're just going to have to accept that it will be a Rangers/Giants World Series.

karen said...

I'm ok with the Rangers being there, I'm just concerned about them beating the gnats.

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, Karen.

And it will all be Josh's fault. *reaches for pitchfork and torch, joins angry mob*

karen said...

If the evil ones have to win, I hope it's on the road. I would rather deny the gnat fans a celebration in their own yard.

MR. F said...

I haven't given up hope. The Phillies can still pull this out.

karen said...

NNOOOOO! Dammit all to hell!

karen said...

MrLASG--I, too want to believe that the Phillies can pull this out. I think they are the better team, they just need to get their heads out of their asses.

Steve Sax said...

if utley can get a hit off you, it's time to have a coaching visit ot the mound

Dusty Baker said...

Who the hell is MLASG? What happened to the "F"?

Orel said...

When did the Phillies become the Dodgers on the basepaths? And the plate?

Epale, all!

Orel said...

Phillies lead! Never mind~

Josh S. said...

@DB: How is it my fault? All I did was refuse to root for the Phillies. Have you seen me in here cheering for the Giants?

Orel said...

Viva Plonko!

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Phillies take lead! Phillies take lead!

Orel said...

Let's feast on the soft underbelly of the Giants' bullpen.

Orel said...

RANCHO PHILLIENDO

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

You rooting for Gnats over Phiwws is what has caused the Gnats to succeed thus far; there is clear causality. Thus, any Gnats success rests undeniably on your shoulders. The science is sound.

Orel said...

Jimmy Foulins

Orel said...

WP! 4-2 PHI

Mr. Customer said...

Hey kids! Looks like we'll have at least one competitive game today.

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Is it just me or does Bochy bear a similar resemblance to Mitch Pileggi?

Orel said...

Giants kind of lucky Phillies only got four in that inning. Still, something to build on.

Steve Sax said...

HEEEEEEY PHILLY!

4-2 Phils

Orel said...

The Smoking Head?

Steve Sax said...

I can't believe there have been no comments on the GT song. I mean, I'm no Troy from West Virginia, but come on dudes.

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

@Sax - You do fine work for a lad.

karen said...

Wow! I step out for a few minutes to pick my daughter up at work and come back to a 4-2 score! Viva los Phiwwies!

Josh S. said...

@DB I think we need Mythbusters.

I'd keep arguing, but the score makes it moot.

Dusty Baker said...

AD Skinner?

Orel said...

Leadoff walk. Way to keep 'em down, Blanton.

Steve Sax said...

shit. the giants are tying the score this inning, i got a feeling (no "whoo, hoo")

Steve Sax said...

When did Mr. LA Sports Fan become Mr. LA Sports Guy? And why?

Keeping with the alphabet theme, your next one has to be Mr. LA Sports Herr.

Orel said...

Polanco taketh, Polanco giveth.

Orel said...

Mr. F couldn't stand that MLASF had "SF" in it and thus modified it to Mr. LA Sports Guy.

Steve Sax said...

I don't practice Renteria
I ain't got no crystal ball
If I had a million dollars, well I'd...

...I'd be batting better than .091

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

What Orel said.

Orel said...

Blanton, you suck.

karen said...

I hateHateHATE the gnats and I think I HATE they're freaky, evil fans more.

karen said...

Siddown OP

Steve Sax said...

@Orel, if that's true that's pretty funny. I've always thought of his abbreviation as being interesting in that it's LA followed by SF.

But I like Mr LA SG better

Steve Sax said...

0 0 0 0 4
1 0 1 0 1

At the Giants' binary rate, the Phils will need to score at least two more runs in the next four frames to win it

Steve Sax said...

blanton and bumgarner, both 4.2 IP, both 5.79 ERA

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Maybe we need a poll to determine which name people prefer.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Y'all
Whoo hoo Phiwy lead. Let's hope they hold it.

*still in disbelief that I'm saying that

MR. F said...

You'll always be MRLASG to me.

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Merlasig?

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Would someone just bean the lil' fucker already?

Orel said...

Why do they keep throwing inside fastballs to Cody Ross

Josh S. said...

Mr. LA Sports Guy sounds like a Bill Simmons knockoff.

What about Mr. LA Sports Chap? Then you get LA and SC in there.

MR. F said...

Fucking Cody Ross. I hate him so much.

Mr. Customer said...

Shite.

Orel said...

Fuck. The Phillies suck so much.

MR. F said...

I originally thought of Mr. LA Sports Dude.

But MRLASD has similar problems to MRLASF.

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

So what is it then? Fan? Guy? Chap? Brother? Meister? King? Purveyor? Observer? Idjit? Baron? Earl? Commander? Chum? Compatriot?

karen said...

I hate that MOFO KFP

MeanieBreanie said...

KFP and Joe Buck can go to hell.

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

God I hate that fat sack of fat.

Orel said...

Still no out too.

MR. F said...

Fucking pandouche.

karen said...

Epale Meanie--I'm glad you're here. We have instructions from Spanky to carry on with the HATE. I'm HATING the best I can, but the Phiwwies aren't cooperating

Mr. Customer said...

HatehateHATE!

Orel said...

PHILLY BLOWS

MeanieBreanie said...

Hi Karen, not to worry. I'm surly today so rest assured there is more than enough hate for the both of us.

MOFOs

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

Why must the Phillies be so awful?

MeanieBreanie said...

Because we need them to be good.

MR. F said...

And that's the bottom line, isn't it, MB?

karen said...

MrLASG--I know I'm a little late here but I like "Sports Dude" but can see the whole SD problem. Therefore, I vote for "Sports Guy"

Mr. LA Sports Guy said...

So if the opposite of what I want comes true...

I DO NOT WANT THE PHILLIES TO WIN

MeanieBreanie said...

MLASG

IMHO you should be LASC
LA Sports Czar or "The Commissioner" since that's a role you play so well.

karen said...

What happened to the 08 & 09 Phillies we had to face??

MR. F said...

I could get behind MRLASC.

MR. F said...

Utley continues to suck.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I am the Czar!

MR. F said...

Fuck this team.

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. LA Sports Czar
AWESOME CHOICE ;~)

karen said...

That GBA sounded like a cat fight

MeanieBreanie said...

Karen, I have cats too. I assure you that when they screech they sound better than that.

MR. F said...

Because Zooey didn't sing it.

Orel said...

Dear Phillies,

Please stop sucking.

Thanks.

karen said...

Meanie--I guess I was maybe insulting my cats. How many do you have?

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. F has totally got it for Zooey.

Orel said...

Mr. F has good taste.

karen said...

Buster Posey can kiss my skinny white ass.

MeanieBreanie said...

Karen, let's not go there and say we did. I have a couple of my own but I also have some ferals I feed that I trapped, spayed/neutered. They must confer among each other and say "If you're down on your luck show up at her house. She'll take care of you". I'm a sucker for animals.

Steve Sax said...

dammit, SF is going to win this game

MeanieBreanie said...

Ok, educate me. How did Posey get the name Oyster Pubes? I missed that somewhere along the way.

Steve Sax said...

criminy, Phillies, YOU SUCK

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

It's an anagram of his name.

Steve Sax said...

Meanie Breanie: Buster Posey anagrams to Oyster Pubes

Steve Sax said...

DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

Dear Ryan Madson: The plate is over there

karen said...

Meanie--OMG!! We truly are 2 of a kind. I've done the same exact thing with the ferals and strays around my house. I rescued a mama and her litter of 3 kittens last summer and they live in the house. The others are all fixed and hang around to eat. I'm so grateful I was able to get them fixed so they didn't keep multiplying.

MeanieBreanie said...

Saxy - it makes perfect sense. Thx!

MR. F said...

I'm partly joking about all the Zooey talk, but she definitely has a good vibe to her.

Orel said...

FUCK! How many freakin' breaks are the Phillies going to give the Giants?

MeanieBreanie said...

Oh gawd, this is fugly, Rancho Ardiendo of the very worst kind.

MR. F said...

Unlike this stupid game and these stupid teams. UGH.

Mr. Customer said...

Fun fact, Pablo Sandoval anagrams to:

So oval (bad plan)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kings score!

Mr. Customer said...

God, I can't watch.

Orel said...

FINALLY SOMETHING GOOD

karen said...

DP for KFP =)

MR. F said...

That's right you fucking pandouche!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

UJTD!

Steve Sax said...

how ironic, KFP bails out "J-Roll"

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karen - hats off sistah! We are obviously both passionate about animals.

Steve Dittmore said...

Joining the party late.

Just voted for 3s for our Yahtzee roll and the results indicate chance is winning.

We got three 3s... gotta put it there.

*confesses to care more about Yahtzee than NLCS*

Orel said...

The way this game is going, I'm ready to switch to watching Yahtzee instead, Steve.

Orel said...

RyHo double!

MR. F said...

Good start!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Who the hell is RyHo?

Oh, Howard.

Orel said...

WERTHFULLY!

MeanieBreanie said...

Whoo hoo, Phiwy showing signs of life.

karen said...

Cody freaking Ross isn't the only ex-Dodger who can deliver!!

Score tied

Orel said...

Nice catch, cake gif!

MR. F said...

Tie game bitches!

MR. F said...

Come on Ruiz! Torment somebody else!

Orel said...

I guess Chooch is saving his hits for when he plays the Dodgers.

MR. F said...

Ugh. Well, it's tied.

Orel said...

Have the Phillies gotten a 1-2-3 inning tonight?

Orel said...

GOT HIM!

Orel said...

Must be nice to have a catcher who can throw.

Mr. Customer said...

Ouch.

MR. F said...

CS!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Martin did well when it came to gunning down runners. It was the non-Canadian catchers who fell short in that area.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jon Heyman gets off on pissing me off.

Orel said...

Brian Wilson Meltdown Experience?

Orel said...

JPo says Oswalt warming up.

rbnlaw said...

Just came from our favorite Mexican restaurant where there were at least 3 people cheering on the Gnats.

My world has gone upside down.

Bad day for Schadenfreude.

Orel said...

Have to say, great play by Uribe there.

Orel said...

There's still hope for Schadenfreude.

Orel said...

Utley K's here. Guaranteed.

Orel said...

See?

Same result, anyway.

rbnlaw said...

Well then;
LET'S GO SCHADENFREUDE!!!

Steve Dittmore said...

I still can't understand why the Barenaked Ladies wrote a song about this Giants pitcher.


Oh, wait. Never mind.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I THOUGHT UTLEY WAS THE NEW MR. OCTOBER?!?! WHAT HAPPENED, EAST COAST MEDIA?!?!

Mr. Customer said...

You suck, Utley!

karina said...

Epale everyone!

I must say I can't carry the torch of hate. From yesterday on, I'm all about the blue :(

@Meaniebreanie @karen we're definitely sisters from a lost mother. I once rescued FIVE stray puppies from campus. I had classes all day long so I came home around 4 with a box with the puppies.I carried the puppies to all my classes, I even got them into the computer lab, I had classes, how could I leave them outside?. My mom wouldn't let to keep ANY of them but I got them five nice homes.

Another time, I was jogging at the park and there was a little kitty, so I went to the bakery to buy him milk and bread. Next day I looked for him to feed him. On the third day, I fed him and then started to jog. Kitty was walking right after me, so I took him home and hid him in the garage for 3 days, with my dad's approval, thinking maybe my mom wouldn't realize. We got so much trouble!

I rescued a couple of cats after that, but these stories are too long and uninteresting.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Isn't Oswalt supposed to start Game 6?

Oh.

Orel said...

Time to find how just how charmed the Giants are.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Karina, welcome to the fray.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm taking a 30 minute break. I need to find some walls to punch.

karina said...

The world is conspiring to break my heart :(

Orel said...

Posey a few feet away from making the Giants a team of destiny.

karina said...

Raise your hand if you stopped breathing

Orel said...

Shit.

Orel said...

Why not pinch run for Huff?

MR. F said...

Epale Karina!

karina said...

IT AIN'T OVER 'TILL IT'S OVER

HOPE FAITH HOPE FAITH

Mr. Customer said...

Aw, crap.

Mr. Customer said...

*both hands raised*

MR. F said...

Thanks for the pre-emptive optimism, Karina.

Orel said...

Fuck. See you tomorrow.

MeanieBreanie said...

fuck, Fuck, FUCK!

karina said...

In Doc I trust

MR. F said...

Well that didn't work...

karina said...

boys and girls, miracles happen, baseball taught me that.

MeanieBreanie said...

Today was a bad day for baseball :(
Tomorrow has got to be better.

Mr. Customer said...

Fuuuuuck…

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Go Rangers! Beat the Giants!

(cries)

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C - I just noticed you responded to my question about Posey. I missed your answer and don't want you to think I was ignoring you.

Dusty Baker said...

HATE HATE HATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Almost forgot:



(cries)

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

I'm ok with that. Someone's got to concentrate on keeping HATE alive.

Mr. Customer said...

Actually, I'm just pleased to have swooped sax on the correct answer.

Dusty Baker said...

I asked that question and was ignored. That right saucy minx MB asks it and gets two answers. I see where I stand around here.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That is why you fail.

karina said...

Dusty, you just can't beat unique charm. You have your own going on, but if there's a definition of my sistah Meanie's charm as a work of art, hers is the Mademoiselles 'd Avignon.

Dusty Baker said...

Which painting would Spanky be?

ps- There are a lot of boobs in that painting.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina,LASC, DB
Blushes and says "Thank you very much".

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@DB - Start showing those fabulous gams and maybe people will start paying attention.

MR. F said...

gams?

karina said...

@Dusty

"ps- There are a lot of boobs in that painting."

that's not easy, boobs have been drawn, painted and sculpted since the caverns.

Mr. Customer said...

Why was I not invited to when there was art geek talk in progress? There should be a Mr. C version of the bat signal for such things.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Gams is a slang word for upper thigh.

Steve Sax said...

OYSTER GAMS

Steve Sax said...

I just noticed that this GT comes up as "test gt goobly" in the sidebar, which is what I had temporarily named it in order to make that mp3 upload work (blogger is not very helpful with that; I needed to do a workaround).

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

Let's face it, the Giants are going to the World Series.

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

Mr. LA SG: I leave 200 to you

Steve Sax said...

Nope. 200
