Game 48 Thread: May 28 @ Rox, 6p

Carlos Monasterios (1-0, 1.90) vs. Jeff Francis (1-0, 0.68).

COMMENTS: That, my friends, is a short leash. Which Monasterios is likely to be on due to his relative inactivity of late. Which means the bullpen better be ready, which is a concern because you don't want to burn your bullpen in the first game of a series at Coors Field.

Worse, the Rockies are hot hot hot right now, winners of five straight. The Dodgers aren't exactly slacking themselves, having won 17 games in May. Losing two of three to the Cubs kinda stung, but at leash we miss ÜberUbaldo this series. Woof!

MONASTERIOS IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION

Steve Sax said...

We will see tonight if he is mono or stereo.

Neeebs said...

Life's the same, I'm Monoastereo. Life's the same, except for my shoes.

Dusty Baker said...

That is one short leash, as far as leashes go. Good find.

Off to walk my dog on a decidedly longer leash, though if he keeps lunging at the poodles next door, I'll have to put him on the Honeycutt special.

Josh S. said...

Belisario has a nice little fro going.

karen said...

I'm sure glad we have Vin back

Dusty Baker said...

Headed home now so will be away from GT until later.

I went here looking for the score first, before any site that actually gives the score. Instead I saw Josh's comment re Beli's new fro. Far more valuable info than any box score could ever convey! Excellent.

Catch y'all soon.

karen said...

There goes the no hitter

karen said...

There goes the shut out

David said...

this game is sucking big time already.

David said...

gameday's glitchy as all get out today.

Mr. Customer said...

Dusty, you may want to keep avoiding sites that give the score.

Mr. Customer said...

Monster is going to last about 2 1/2 innings at this rate.

Steve Sax said...

MonoStereos: not so good yet

Mr. Customer said...

We're lucky it was only two.

Mr. Customer said...

So they've got defense, pitching and hitting down. What do we have?

Mr. Customer said...

I don't like the smell of this game

karen said...

@MrC...We've got good intentions??

Josh S. said...

Why is the camera angle so wide?

Steve Sax said...

Did we forget to pack our offense on this roadtrip?

Josh S. said...

So...CarGo is clutch?

Eric Karros said...

Hi folks, just checking in

Josh S. said...

It depends on which meaning of offense, Sax. The games on this trip have been pretty offensive.

Mr. Customer said...

I'll take the gift.

Mr. Customer said...

@Karen

Good intentions? Enough to pave a road.

Eric Karros said...

Already down 2-0? Steriosly?

Eric Karros said...

That's my Monasterios pun for the evening.

Mr. Customer said...

@ek

Monotonously, even.

Mr. Customer said...

Crap.

Josh S. said...

Mono homer here.

David said...

gosh darn it.

Josh S. said...

Making him work.

Josh S. said...

Monny's got a fro too!

Getting ready for 70's Night?

Mr. Customer said...

Francis has faced the minimum. Wake up the bats, boys.

karen said...

1-2-3 for Mono

Josh S. said...

The 70's Night poster is badass, btw.

Eric Karros said...

@Karen: Yup - at least Rockies didn't "sock mono" in that inning.

@Karina (o alguien mas): did you get the pun I just made?

Mr. Customer said...

Frustrating.

Eric Karros said...

Come on Manny, hit one out for Gary Coleman.

Eric Karros said...

I guess Manny had already grounded out by the time I wrote that.

Damn gameday.

Josh S. said...

I'm surprised teams don't just always send lefties against us.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Just escaped a little while from my mom b-day's party to check the score.

@EK i did! hahahahahahahahaha (now I want to stay here and not come back to the party!)

@Josh I want to see a larger image of that poster. If it's that awesome, I want it framed on my wall.

Paul said...

Just arrived at the house at AG only to find out the cable is turned off.

Choppy 3g service. You guys will be my eyes but with blurry vision.

Steve Sax said...

Johnson's throw was nowhere near home, so Rox up 3-0.

We picked the wrong time to stop scoring runs.

Eric Karros said...

Epale Karina! See, I told you I'd be on a GT eventually.

Josh S. said...

@karina: I copied and pasted that link on my iPhone, so I'm sure a larger image is available.

Mr. Customer said...

So, this isn't going to happen, is it?

Eric Karros said...

BTW I was asking about the 'sock mono' pun, not the 'steriosly' one.

*shamelessly seeking recognition for my references to the Kia Crew*

Eric Karros said...

dude this blows

Josh S. said...

Vinny calling that guy a clown made my night.

NicJ said...

They'll review it. But I'm sure we are getting shut out anyways.

Haha Vin called the guy a clown.

Eric Karros said...

@Mr C, if by 'this' you mean me hooking up with Jessica Alba, well, never say never.

But if by 'this' you mean Monasterios shutting down the Rockies, the answer is, sadly, no.

Josh S. said...

Clown is the Vin equivalent of asshole.

NicJ said...

Who the fuck wears wristbands to a game? Did the dude run out of eyeblack?

Mr. Customer said...

Yup. Well, when you're hot, you're hot.

Eric Karros said...

Mr C, so what's on tap for your next puzzle?

karen said...

BISON GOES YARD!!!

Josh S. said...

That's what you get when you don't believe Matt when he says it's not a home run.

Mr. Customer said...

@EK

Well, we're not getting shut out. You'd better keep your cellphone on hand in case she calls.

Re: next puzzle. Well, there is at least one Simpsons reference and one rhyming couplet, so you should be set. Alas, that is all I can reveal.

Eric Karros said...

nice

Mr. Customer said...

They should just walk the ball out to Stewart to save time.

Eric Karros said...

Ah, gotcha, Mr C. Just send me the solution by email and I'll send you the solution to my next one. Just like we did last time.

Just kidding everyone.

Josh S. said...

Lefty starter or no lefty starter, Loney should never sit on the bench at Coors.

Mr. Customer said...

Yes. Kidding, of course.

No conspiracy to see here, keep walking.

Josh S. said...

I've heard of trying to wear down the pitcher, but not the third baseman.

Eric Karros said...

Actually, I didn't even solve your previous puzzle, so that wouldn't make sense. Or maybe we're just that good at covering our tracks.

Mr. Customer said...

I fear MLASFs walls will wear down faster than Stewart.

Josh S. said...

Helton's sleeve thingy is really feminine-looking.

Mr. Customer said...

@EK

No, the last one was the one we were rigging so Josh would win, remember? Made a grip o' cash in Vegas, at that.

Josh S. said...

I'm flattered.

Mr. Customer said...

Still hate the vest uniforms.

Betsy said...

Suck it all to hell. First I get sidelined by the dang fire on the 91 and now GAARP is @ bat. SIGH, what a freakin day.

Steve Sax said...

Why the GAARP???

Mr. Customer said...

Wha!?

Josh S. said...

I am oh so proud of GAARP.

(The nickname, not the player.)

karen said...

GA....Who knew?

Josh S. said...

That just got him a second year.

Steve Sax said...

GAARP shows me up!

I like it!

Betsy said...

Oh he made me eat my words and now I will wash them down w/my martini.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, unless something drastic happens, looks like no epic collapse for the Celtics.

Eric Karros said...

@Mr C

Oh that's right, I forgot.

By the way, UBragg's check just cleared. Tomorrow I'll let you all know how a brand new Lamborghini handles.

Steve Sax said...

Josh S, you get the GAARP entry for the SoSG Glossary, whenever you want to submit it.

Oh boy, sending GAARP from second on a sac fly is risky...I could hear his bones creaking from here.

Steve Sax said...

Vin is mixing up Martin and LoDuca. Hoo, boy.

Mr. Customer said...

Ha! It worked!

Steve Sax said...

Nice job J Martin!!!

4-3

karen said...

@Betsey

91 was a disaster today

Steve Sax said...

MANNY!!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Whee!!!!!!

karen said...

MANNY'S BACK!!!!

Eric Karros said...

wow!

Mr. Customer said...

Hope that means he's back in form.

Steve Sax said...

Was I sure Jim Tracy was going to leave his starter in too long? I think you'd have to say yes.

Steve Sax said...

I really wanted to Celtics to lose this series. Darn it.

Mr. Customer said...

I like seeing that sad-sack walk to the mind happen to someone else.

David said...

oh hell yes.

Steve Sax said...

Unfortunately, no lead is safe at Coors, not even a one-run lead.

Josh S. said...

Gary Whoshisface on the pregame show called Manny's homer.

Mr. Customer said...

Let's beat the snot out of their, 'pen, just for good measure.

Eric Karros said...

Sax, are you bringing back nostalgic memories of Jim Tracy? The answer would seem to be yes.

Mr. Customer said...

^Where did that rougue comma come from?

karen said...

At least we know Joe's not going to trot RaOrtiz out there

Eric Karros said...

Looks like another conspiracy, Mr C

Steve Sax said...

Monosterios can't lose.

And Parkerlewis can't win.

Eric Karros said...

Ok folks I gotta run. Hope to see a W when I check back...

Steve Sax said...

Wow, that ball 4 to Belliard looked really close.

Reed Johnson? How are ya'?

SD losing 3-0 to the Nats in the fourth inning

Steve Sax said...

Johnson should have swung at strike 1

Steve Sax said...

Johnson now down 0-2. Guessing Blake is stranded.

Steve Sax said...

Reed Johnson HBP. It's all up to our own MSB, Wide Eyes!

Mr. Customer said...

Rancho Ackbariendo

Steve Sax said...

Ubragg's bribing to win the PCS?

Next we'll have Floyd Landis entering the competition.

Josh S. said...

I'm not 100% convinced Ubragg isn't EK.

Mr. Customer said...

Crooked numbers for us.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm not 100% convinced UBragg is entirely human.

Josh S. said...

Oh. Tron. So...we're still going to lose.

Mr. Customer said...

Let's see if Tron remembers how not to suck.

Steve Sax said...

Life moves fast.

So fast that palm is an outdated company, and that product is useless.

Josh S. said...

Palm trying to win me over with the songs in their commercials.

Sent from my iPhone.

Mr. Customer said...

Tron looks like he's bouncing back. Joe will now use him in every game next week.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

If advertising were everything, we'd all have our garages full of Kias.

Mr. Customer said...

Nats lead SD 3-1 in the 5tg

Steve Sax said...

Padres down 3-1, top 5

giants up 2-0 on the snakes, end 4

Steve Sax said...

Tron fooled the heck out of Barmes there

Steve Sax said...

Reed Johnson snags that Mora ball and holds him to a single.

You watching, Xavier Paul?!?!

Mr. Customer said...

Heads-up play there for...Reed.

Steve Sax said...

Celtics advance...

Steve Sax said...

@Josh s. 8.01-8.04p: pretty funny that we both commented on the palm commercial. Which looked like it was taken in Macarthur Park, northeast corner, if I'm not mistaken.

Steve Sax said...

Come on Kuo!

Steve Sax said...

2-2 count to Spilborghs. Deuces wild--shit, ball trois

Betsy said...

@Karen - still sucking cheeks! Now on the nonmoving imperial highway. Wonder if I will make it home in time to see the 9th. Getting funny looks from Angel fans as i shake my fists!

Steve Sax said...

KCAL goes to the crazy split screen! Holy smokes!

Mr. Customer said...

Come on, Kuo!

Steve Sax said...

@Mr C 8:54p: nice job with "rancho ackbardiendo"

that's right, iPhone! What are you gonna suggest for that word?

I thought so. Now stay down!

Mr. Customer said...

Ugh. Need strikes.

Steve Sax said...

Kuo is playing with fire here

3-2 to Helton, two on two out

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

I'm on iPad, and it gave up after 10 letters or so.

karen said...

Thank you Todd Helton

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Kuo makes Helton chase a really bad one upstairs!

And Kuo does a bat-flip equivalent jump off the mound!

Steve Sax said...

I like Hong-Chih Kuo!

Mr. Customer said...

@betsy

Still on the road? Holy Holiday weekend, Batman!

Steve Sax said...

Ethier went 1-for-2 in a rehab start...

Steve Sax said...

Manny Ramirez, Schmidt passer

Steve Sax said...

@Betsy, I can't believe your work kept you until 7p on a holiday weekend. Boooooooo

Steve Sax said...

All you Rox fans cheering the Manny K:

Booooooo to you

Mr. Customer said...

Not gonna touch that one.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp takes two bad swings and then flies out.

Steve Sax said...

I think the Cubs should come to the Dodgers "Under The Lights" night

Steve Sax said...

Wow that was a bad inning.

Paul said...

What is going on guys?

My iPhone must have the 2004 virus because gameday says Manny hit a homerun and GA has a hit.

Josh S. said...

Coors plays DSB too? Is it just a baseball thing now?

Paul said...

The entire central coast must have one cell tower.

Josh S. said...

Tulo uses Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA" as his walk-up music.

I don't think I can laugh hard enough.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

Just purchased dodgers/sox tix today.

Steve Sax said...

The last five Rox outs have been Ks

beli gets tulo on the k. One out

Paul said...

I think the red sox use to but then went to Neil and next Band on the Run starting with the Dodgers Sox series

Mr. Customer said...

That's sorta funny and sorta scary, Paul.

Steve Sax said...

Paul, your iPhone is correct.

Fly out to Manny for out #2, olivo Ks for out #3

Steve Sax said...

Honda is shooting its ads in Chi-Town!

Steve Sax said...

Kcal please stand by? Huh?

You ate his face?

Josh S. said...

More technical difficulties!

And they're gone by the time I type that.

Steve Sax said...

XP with a quick AB

Paul said...

Mr. C

For the sunday game? Get your plane tix yet?

Josh S. said...

That might have worked if he didn't bunt-pop it.

Steve Sax said...

Why would you put Paul in right for defensive purposes?

Oh, in left. Got it.

Steve Sax said...

Someone hand Beimel a broken pint glass, please

karen said...

I used to like Beimel when he was with us

Now, not so much

Josh S. said...

I miss Beimel. Especially when he pitches like that.

Mr. Customer said...

Yup Sunday game and flight locked in.

Josh S. said...

Did Broxton even have time to warm up?

Steve Sax said...

Just beat my neighbor's kid in HORSE this evening. He's in sixth grade and us a good kid.

But I had to beat him.

Paul said...

Now all I need to see is blogger go down and I will know project Mayhem has started.

Josh S. said...

Shit. XP's in right. I hope the Rockies didn't watch yesterday's game.

Steve Sax said...

Bottom of the ninth, 5-4 dodgers

shit. Reed moved to left, Paul goes to right. Jason Giambi up.

Mr. Customer said...

Aw, no pornstache?

Josh S. said...

Mekka lekka hi! It's Giambi!

Steve Sax said...

Giambi up, so the shift is on

Paul said...

Defensive Johnson!

Steve Sax said...

Brox frickin HAD Giambi and he hits him. Great.

Mr. Customer said...

Damn, not now, Brox!

Mr. Customer said...

Ugh. Nervous now.

Steve Sax said...

I have a bad feeling about this

Mr. Customer said...

Strikeout wanted!

Steve Sax said...

1-2 count with man on first / none out

Mr. Customer said...

And delivered!

Steve Sax said...

Barmes K. One out.

Mr. Customer said...

GIDP wanted

Paul said...

What is happening (runs into the wall)

Josh S. said...

That scared the crap out of me.

Mr. Customer said...

Ok, uno mas!

Josh S. said...

COors Field bites all our music.

Steve Sax said...

Paul, if you hadn't had been so cavalier on that Mora fly ball to right, Fowler might not have advanced to scoring position.

How can you be cavalier after yesterday's debacle?

Paul said...

One more out and we Make party?

Paul said...

What did I do now? Bench me.

Steve Sax said...

Well, they're putting the winning run aboard to get to Spilborghs...

Steve Sax said...

Hoo boy

Mr. Customer said...

This is making my brain itchy.

Mr. Customer said...

1 strike!

Steve Sax said...

Nervous time!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

200

karen said...

I can't take this kind of stress so soon after the Lakers game
