Game 14 Thread: April 21 @ Reds, 4p

Hiroki Kuroda (1-0, 1.20) vs. Aaron Harang (0-2, 7.88).

COMMENTS: Yesterday's game was so emotionally draining, I can't tell WTF is going on in Cincinnati. We take a three-run lead. We go down 9-3. We awaken from somnambulating and tie it at 9. Then in the same frickin' frame, we take our eyes off the ball again and lose 11-9. WTF, 3.0 IP / 7 R Chad Billingsley? WTF, 0-for-4 / 5 LOB James Loney? WTF, Dodgers?

I'm counting on Kuroda to even this series up. I'm confident the bats will be there today. I hope the arms can hold up, as well.

Okay, guys...hold down the fort

NicJ said...

FUCK were gonna get boned by the umps right now.

MR. F said...

AHHHH. Need updates!

Casey said...

Unfortunately, that inning pretty much killed any chance of Hiroki going 7 or more deep.

Buck Nekkid said...

>Kuroda.

Fred's Brim said...

what do we call the non-hustle stats? Offermans? Offermen?

giving up a hit to the pitcher with 2 strikes counts

NicJ said...

complete BS, how can you overturn a call like that?

Buck Nekkid said...

HOW THE FUCK DO YOU OVERTURN A JUDGEMENT CALL????????

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They fucking overturned it?

Buck Nekkid said...

*it was a trap.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Play under protest. Play under fucking protest.

Fred's Brim said...

Mr F they counted it as a catch but it looked like it bounced

NicJ said...

Hiro's gonna get lit up here.

this is bullshit.

PULL THE GUYS OFF THE FIELD

Mr. Customer said...

Are you goddamn kidding me?

Fred's Brim said...

wait they overturned it? MLB.TV cut away

Josh S. said...

Horseshit, but at least it's only one run.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You could make the call either way, I think.

Steve Sax said...

Wait, WTF?

Fred's Brim said...

fuck everything

NicJ said...

well its potentially only one run.

Fred's Brim said...

that was so close to bouncing past Ethier. Harang would have had a bases clearing triple

NicJ said...

well now the innings over.

bullshit though.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RULE 9.02: Any umpire’s decision which involves judgment, such as, but not limited to, whether a batted ball is fair or foul, whether a pitch is a strike or a ball, or whether a runner is safe or out, is final. No player, manager, coach or substitute shall object to any such judgment decisions.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

That shit qualifies for a protest? Right?

Casey said...

Error, walk and a reversed call. That inning hit the trifecta for shitiness. A miracle only one run went across.

Mr. Customer said...

<-I'm playing the rest of this thread under protest.

NicJ said...

somebody get selig on the GT

Fred's Brim said...

oh no - Joe Morgan is on the Reds broadcast!!

Fred's Brim said...

Raffy with a good walk

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

joe morgan is evil

Steve Sax said...

Walk to Raffy

Buck Nekkid said...

I am commenting on this game under protest.

Buck Nekkid said...

Dammit, Mr. C

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

IF Torre called protest, and IF the league rules in his favor, then we redo the entire game from the fifth onward.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That being said, I don't think Torre called protest.

Fred's Brim said...

how hard is it to tag from 1st to 2nd? you would think it wouldnt be too hard on a deep fly ball like that, no more than stealing second anyway. I guess it isnt as you rarely see it

Steve Sax said...

Corners with one out

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Dre, great AB

Steve Sax said...

Come on Manny

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least we take the lead again.

Fred's Brim said...

Manny comes through with his third hit of the game

Fred's Brim said...

GIDP for Loney?

NicJ said...

Bloney up.

NicJ said...

Bloney down.

Fred's Brim said...

popup - only one out, that's an improvement

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney sucks.

Buck Nekkid said...

Dre and manny strike back.

NicJ said...

i dont think a 1 run lead is gonna cut it tonight.

NicJ said...

Alright no more baseball for me tonight. Im off to the Angels game.

Steve Sax said...

Yay manny! 1800 RBI

too bad loney and Blake buzzkilled

Steve Sax said...

5-4 dodgers. We need 5 more

Steve Sax said...

Wow, a 1B who hits, how novel

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Sax - You'd think they'd be more popular in baseball.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

YEEERRR OUT!

Steve Sax said...

Way to nail votto, dre

Buck Nekkid said...

OVERTURN THAT MOTHEREFFERS!

Mr. Customer said...

@buck

Hope you're not too red-assed abot me stealing you thunder.

Fred's Brim said...

how many did the Reds score that inning? it still says 4 - did they flip the scoreboard?

Steve Sax said...

With Rolen's flyball, it wouldve scored votto

dre saved a run

Fred's Brim said...

shitty penalty help the Bruins sneak a goal

Fred's Brim said...

another weak Buffalo penalty within 20 seconds. somebody wants the Bruins to win

Fred's Brim said...

nice, Russ

Fred's Brim said...

great bunt

Fred's Brim said...

can Raffy come through again?

Fred's Brim said...

he does! and makes it second on the throw!

Steve Sax said...

Raffy! 6-4

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RAFFY!!

Orel said...

Gomes airmailed that.

Fred's Brim said...

goddam Bruins

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty with the hook, Reds bullpen is on the menu now

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, the guy who can hit but not pitch is pitching!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty's due

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think they were talking about jazz hands.

Fred's Brim said...

haha they wanted that one

Orel said...

Has Furcal been drinking from the fountain of youth?

Orel said...

Patient AB by Kemp there.

Steve Sax said...

Well done kemp

score him dre!

Fred's Brim said...

Dre with a good opportunity here

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ah, the old fake to third fake to first move.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hooray for defensive errors!

Orel said...

Phillips tries to get cute. 7-4 Dodgers

karen said...

Yay Phillips!

Fred's Brim said...

yes!

Fred's Brim said...

did they have a chance at Dre at 1st?

Fred's Brim said...

Manny with another shot. 4-4 anyone?

Fred's Brim said...

too many singles for Manny, time for a double

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Runners on the move.

Orel said...

"did they have a chance at Dre at 1st?"

no

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Manny is 4-for-4 with 4 walks in this series now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rancho GIDPiendo.

Orel said...

The good news is that Loney can't hit into a double play here.

MR. F said...

Bison Patience today.

Fred's Brim said...

James really wants to walk here

Fred's Brim said...

but that will do nicely!!

Orel said...

LONEYBIs!

Josh S. said...

Loney doesn't suck!

Mr. Customer said...

Loney fails to suck in the clutch!

karen said...

great time for James to get a hit

Fred's Brim said...

fuckin A, we've scored 9 runs again

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hooray for Loney!

Fred's Brim said...

one more, Casey

Fred's Brim said...

this ump's strikezone changed this inning

Buck Nekkid said...

@FB:
Did we win?

MR. F said...

9-4. Not bad. A few more runs and our lead might be safe.

Fred's Brim said...

@RB - how do you mean? we haven't lost yet, if that counts

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Hiro, two more outs

Fred's Brim said...

Breezy up in the pen

Fred's Brim said...

haha he's mad

Fred's Brim said...

that's 100 pitches for Hiro

MR. F said...

Back when Rollercoaster Tycoon came out, I made a rollercoaster that hit 90 mph, was completely out of control, and caused people to throw up like a mofo. I called it "Gentle Breeze Ride."

This year, George Sherrill's nickname is appropriate for the same reasons.

Fred's Brim said...

good
lord
Raffy
Eff You

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Padres sweep, officially have best record in NL West.

Orel said...

Furcal gives one back, right through the wickets. Maybe his back is still bothering him?

Fred's Brim said...

and that's it for Hiro
sonofacrap

Orel said...

FB coming in.

And I don't mean Fred's Brim.

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel, i'm ready to go, skip! you need me to throw at anybody? Raffy maybe?

Fred's Brim said...

Stubbs! My life's in these bottles!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Maybe we should crown Sherrill the new Beard Mode. It is a pretty righteous beard.

Fred's Brim said...

Breezy wants to load the bases

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh

Orel said...

firestarter

Fred's Brim said...

home run time?

Steve Sax said...

Wow, that Raffy error might be realy, really bad here

Orel said...

"Stubbs! My life's in these bottles!"

Very nice. Had to google it.

Fred's Brim said...

that's more of a van dyke. i want fuzzy cheeks!

MR. F said...

Pitching and defense go hand-in-hand. We suck horridly at both right now.

Fred's Brim said...

oh damn that would have been bad

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

My heart leaped out of my mouth for a second.

Fred's Brim said...

shit balls

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking shit shit shit.

Orel said...

Yeah, that was not unexpected. 9-6 Dodgers

Steve Sax said...

Geez George, can't you get anyone out?

Fred's Brim said...

get a goddamn out

Fred's Brim said...

here's the homerun

Fred's Brim said...

WAAACK!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There's still three innings left? I feel like Joe West.

Mr. Customer said...

Monasterios woulda got him.

Steve Sax said...

9-6. We will need 10+ to win...

Steve Sax said...

Actually, we will probably need 12 if last night was any indication

Orel said...

Belly sighting!

Fred's Brim said...

Raffy would have kicked that one into the stands

Steve Sax said...

Heeeeeere's Wide Eyes

Steve Sax said...

You can't sneak those outside balls past Wide Eyes

Fred's Brim said...

hey a playoff overtime penalty got called! in favor of Buffalo!

Steve Sax said...

Raffy HR right here

Fred's Brim said...

alert, ballsy baserunnig there

can Raffy come through again?

Steve Sax said...

Carroll with a heads up, eyes open slide

Orel said...

RAFFY ATONES

Fred's Brim said...

wow - that's amazing

Steve Sax said...

Boooooooooom Raffy! Triple!

10-6 Blue

Orel said...

Wow, Raffy was motoring there. Is this a contract year for him?

Jason said...

There's your 12

Orel said...

BISON

karen said...

MATTY!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty! Again!

Steve Sax said...

Kempy!!!!!!!!!

7th HR!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Raffy's just a homer short of the cycle!

Mr. Customer said...

KEMP!!!!

Buck Nekkid said...

KEMP

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KEMP!!!

Fred's Brim said...

unreal!

Orel said...

That was Piazza-esque.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp should have met Rihanna last September. Wow.

Josh S. said...

Your NL home run and RBI leader!

MR. F said...

Wow.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Belly's on his way in.

MR. F said...

MUST... GET... BISON MAN... ACTION FIGURE

Steve Sax said...

You know, I really don't like it when I'm watching the game at home with my young kids, and a MMA PPV ad comes on. Shouldn't there be a way I can block those ads?

Or at least replace them with a Jack In The Box, two girls kissing commercial?

Steve Sax said...

Belisario!

Steve Sax said...

Let's keep them on the ground, Belly

Fred's Brim said...

has anybody noticed that the dugout isnt the jovial place it was last year? Everybody seems ho-hum, even after another Kempian blast. Maybe that's the product of playing .500 ball, but there doesn't seem to be that camaraderie we saw last year

Fred's Brim said...

wow what just happened there? is the inning over?

Fred's Brim said...

sorry Kings fans. I am hoping the Sabres can win and get you out to your game as soon as possible

MR. F said...

FB: Yeah. People will have more fun when we start winning. And they'd enjoy scoring more if we didn't give runs away like Real McCoy.

Josh S. said...

Matt Kemp has more home runs than Albert Pujols. My brain is broken.

Fred's Brim said...

@Mr F - Nice! or like Slade

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Josh - So is the brain of everyone at Baseball Tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

James rips one!

Fred's Brim said...

Casey needs one

MR. F said...

Bison Man inspires Loney to not GIDP?

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

Almost every commercial could be replaced in like manner.

Also, Loney!

karen said...

Lucky 13

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MOAR RUNZ

Fred's Brim said...

Man of man, Miller and Rask have been awesome in this overtime

Fred's Brim said...

nice, Casey!

Fred's Brim said...

GA needs to go back on the juice

Fred's Brim said...

only 7 or 8 more outs to get

Fred's Brim said...

Weaves in to mop up

Fred's Brim said...

uhoh the trainer's out to check on Jeff for some reason

MR. F said...

It'd be nice if Weaver could pitch 2 innings and finish the game up.

Fred's Brim said...

looks like a back strain, and he's coming out :/

that was a crazy, self-felation stretch he did there

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MAYBE'S IT'S BECAUSE HE'S BEEN USED EVERY FUCKING DAY

NicJ said...

Weaver injured? He's on borrowed time anyways. Can link come back now?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MONASTERIOS TIME!!!

Jason said...

Loney on the other side of a GIDP for once.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

YEAH!!! MONASTERIOS!!! WOO-HOOO!!! SUCK THAT, REDS!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

400

NicJ said...

At angels game. Fireworks go boom, fans cheer.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Reds' are at .1% on Fangraphs.

David said...

Just got back...OH...this is sweet justice for what happened yesterday.
