Game 103 Thread: July 30 @ Giants, 7p

Carlos Monasterios (3-2, 3.30) vs. Tim Lincecum (10-4, 3.12).

COMMENTS: How did it come to this? The Dodgers, clinging to their NL West lives, starting a crucial series in San Francisco with a fifth starter who's recovering from a foul ball to the head. The bullpen, already stretched thin from last night's disheartening loss in San Diego. The offense, not having scored more than three runs in a win in the last 14 games. Oh, and Lincecum starting for the Giants. Can we rough up Timmeh two games in a row? Will Dusty tell him to wash his hair? The Game Thread will reveal all.

At what age did huff draw this picture of Bonds at ATT park?

Dude had to have been like 17.

Mr. Customer said...

Epale karina.

There's no way I'm holding you responsible for this garbage.

Fred's Brim said...

what the hell? how is Huff any good at all? He isnt, so what's going on? Somebody needs to explain this to me

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We desperately need some Karina to keep us sane. I know I do. I'm quickly losing hope with every hit Huff gets.

NicJ said...

Huff's back on the juice he was using in the tampa years.

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

Yeah, he's not.

So...

Fred's Brim said...

is he one of those guys with a medical exemption for HGH? Or is Balco back in business?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Maybe Huff is one of these guys with ADHD.

karina said...

@Mr LASF this is just the bumpy side of the road. Let's not freak out, the Pods maybe will get Mets' September luck.

As long they keep their mathematical chances,there's no reason they miss the postseason.

Fred's Brim said...

i would like a review of Leonhardt Vineyards from Paul

karina said...

@Mr C I interrupted routine this week, it's my fault :(

though it's not my fault Internet sucks at home and keeps falling, also it's not exactly I've had a busy week with circumstances out of my control.

NicJ said...

It sure is fitting that we are closing in on a deal for Lilly, cause this is starting to look like a funeral.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

No doubt.

I'm still not letting the boys off the hook for mailing it in this week, though.

NicJ said...

Ely gave up 4 runs and while only retiring one batter tonight for the topes before the game was called due to rain.

Fred's Brim said...

please please please no trades :(

Fred's Brim said...

Ely don't like low-pressure systems

NicJ said...

I would like the novelty of the possibility of a dodgers rotation featuring Ely / Lilly though.

Fred's Brim said...

just throw strikes, T-Slick

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fuck You Will Clark with your mouthful of crap!

karina said...

By the way, earlier this week I tried to tweet something like "I love how @MrLASportsFan owns Moriyama and ArgyledPlaschke.It just brightens my TL,never get enough!".

Never worked out.I think it was on Monday night.

karina said...

Checking out GameDay and I found out we had a third out at third base, which horrifies me.

We also had an out at home.

What's up with Bowa tonight?

NicJ said...

Karina, the team is pressing, big time.

Mr. Customer said...

@Karina

Yeah, plenty of fail to go around tonight.

karina said...

Now we'll have a comeback.

Fred's Brim said...

Russ knows that karina is watching now

NicJ said...

hustle.

NicJ said...

damn

Dusty Baker said...

It hurts. It huuuuuuuuurts.

Fred's Brim said...

Jamey Carroll knows that I am watching

NicJ said...

@DB, its ok man. The dodgers season is going to live on a big farm where it can run and play all it wants.

Mr. Customer said...

I feel terrible for Raffy right now. He's playing like he's on fire, an no one else seems to care.

Fred's Brim said...

Pods getting the feel

we catch a meaningless break

NicJ said...

Pffff, Rowand would have caught that.

Mr. Customer said...

That was good. I'll have more of those please.

karina said...

baby steps, right?

Fred's Brim said...

Raffy needs a triple

karina said...

Breakthrough comment:

I hate Brian Wilson.

Fred's Brim said...

i'll take a double

karina said...

Why on my mind Podsenik is a MSB?

NicJ said...

damn, nearly killed raffys elbow right there.

Fred's Brim said...

woah did karina really type that? I printscreened that just in case she deleted her message

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Please Raffy, just get on base.

Fred's Brim said...

Dre DP?

Dusty Baker said...

Nic, that's exactly what I needed to hear.

Plus. the Dodgers season will be able to see my first dog, from 1976, who I know is still alive and got sent to that EXACT place! How cool.

Do they have beer at this place?

Mr. Customer said...

Wilson does embody everything I dislike about this incarnation of the Jints.

karina said...

@FB most of the time, I'm a lover not ahter, but it wouldn't be normal to love everyone, right?

Spank Raving Mad said...

Yanks get Berkman

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jonathan Sanchez out of the pen? I thought he was a starter.

Fred's Brim said...

@karina they are very natural and rational feelings

Fred's Brim said...

Ethier bad K, Loney weak groundout

Dusty Baker said...

Pods paying off. He manufactured that run.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HELL YEAH WILD PITCH

karina said...

@Mr C great minds...

NicJ said...

@DB, this farm has a microbrew festival every weekend.

Mr. Customer said...

nice!

Fred's Brim said...

that's 4 runs. does that mean we get shut out tomorrow?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm getting tired of Ethier right now.

Mr. Customer said...

Ugh.

All you JFL.

karina said...

@FB positive side: an Ethier K it's better than a DP :)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney homer. Calling it.

NicJ said...

I knew having lefties bunched up in the lineup would bite us in the ass tonight.

NicJ said...

loney broken wrist, out for season.

Mr. Customer said...

Oh god...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well that does it. We're in the swirling vortex of outs, where only Martin can survive.

NicJ said...

at the very least we are taking some joy out of this giants victory.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Matty, make us forget

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Is there any way to hop, skip, and jump the next three spots in the lineup to get to Martin?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is officially the AB of Kemp's season.

karina said...

Hey stop calling any injuries!

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp loves watching that little ball fly by as he stands there. Sometimes, he takes wild, speculative swings at it just to see what happens.

NicJ said...

FINISH HIM!!!

Fred's Brim said...

throw that again and you will get Matty to swing

NicJ said...

interesting.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

YES! YES! FUCKING YES!!!

Josh S. said...

Jigga whaaaaaa?

karina said...

Vin says "the Dodgers are not done yet"

FAITH!

NicJ said...

casey has had some pretty clutch HR's against the giants.

Fred's Brim said...

Matty keeps us going!
It's up to the Allmighty Mostpowerful BEARD now

Mr. Customer said...

Don't you dare fucking tease.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If we lose I'll only be more pissed.

NicJ said...

wild pitch please.

karina said...

Barba, you can do it!

NicJ said...

well, that still sucked.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is officially the AB of Blake's season.

Fred's Brim said...

needs more beard

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

OH YOU FUCKING SUCK BEARD

Josh S. said...

Ugh.

Hey, more than two runs. That's a victory in itself.

NicJ said...

maybe that woke up the bats at the very least.

Mr. Customer said...

Why?

Whywhywhy?

Fred's Brim said...

why not take a pitch or two there?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why Blake? Why the first fucking pitch? WHY DO YOU SWING ON THE FIRST PITCH WHEN THE GUY WENT FULL COUNT TO MATT KEMP? WHY DO YOU TORTURE ME SO YOU HAIRY BASTARD?

NicJ said...

if only we would have done something with the bases loaded and one out early in the game.

NicJ said...

Ted Lilly would have taken a few pitches.

Fred's Brim said...

Ryan Theriot would have grounded out on the THIRD pitch

MR. F said...

Damnit. Wrong thread. =(

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's always those damn insurance runs. It always seems like the opponents get a few insurance runs, and sure enough, that's enough to stifle a comeback. I'm so pissed at Weaver and Blake and Ethier and DeWitt and almost everyone but Raffy.

Mr. Customer said...

While we're on the subject of why, why do I jeep putting myself through this?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Mr C - because it's a fine American vehicle.

Fred's Brim said...

time for some bed. gnite all

Mr. Customer said...

Well, it's right next to "k". You get the picture.

Dusty Baker said...

post-game: pigeons circling the field - WTF? It must be the rotting carcas of the Dodgers season that they are swooping in on. And on the poor grammar that I have been stricken with, what with ending a sentence with not one but two prepositions.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I kid because it hurts to cry.

Josh S. said...

[SoSG Fest location redacted] better stock a LOT of alcohol.

NicJ said...

@MR C - i just figured you had to use "J" because the dodgers used all the "K's" tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm with FB. I need some sleep. Still feeling woozy. Besides, you guys need someone to man the watchtower tomorrow for the Trade Deadline while your wining and dining with the Sons.

Dusty Baker said...

Wha happened to Weaver? Used to be lockdown in a jam. Now he's a lock to get into a jam. Done and done.

NicJ said...

DB, weaver home/away splits are insane this year.

NicJ said...

Weaver has an ERA of under 2.00 at home and an ERA nearing 7.00 on the road.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YOU STEVE LYONS. Stop being such an anti-homer. That pitch to Huff was clearly below the knees, and he should have been called bacl to the batter's box. If we're going to lose, at least give us something, you lanky shithell C level former player.

Mr. Customer said...

@mlasf

I dunno, nothing goes quite so well with tequila as vicodin.

(kidding, don't do that)

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic re Weaver

He must not be able to score any weed on the road. Only thing I can think of for that split.

MR. F said...

Red wine and sleeping pills for me tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit. I was all jazzed up before that disclaimer.

Mr. Customer said...

I still have a bone to pick with Kemp over that brain dead play early on.

Dusty Baker said...

I am getting fucking hammered tomorrow.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

You'll likely have company.

karina said...

Guys, breathe.

They'll improve, have faith!.Besides, Wild Card is going to stay on the NL West. This team is capable of that, no matter how lousy is their playing right now.

karina said...

why are we suggesting to mix pills and alcohol?

See what you've done Dodgers? (besides getting a third out at third base and an out at home, sorry to bring that back but I can;t deal with this)

karina said...

Good night, everyone. I need some rest. Have fun.

Dusty Baker said...

"Listened to Vin when I was taking a shower and thought about drowning."

So we can't mix booze and pills, but we can consider suicide by drowning, Karina? ;-)

Spank Raving Mad said...

Hope everyone has a good time at SOSG Fest. I'll be there next year when I earn my stripes..Hopefully

until then.

Here Me FUCKING ROAR!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Glad to see Karina is back

STAY TRUE TO BLUE....FOOLS

Paul said...

Another weekend working. Dodgers made it worse by stupid errors and making the third out at third base.

I wish I could be with the crew tomorrow but won't have my bender next weekend.

Until someone in the west starts raising the bar we will try to win this half ass way.

rbnlaw said...

Goddamn.
My armpits feel like shit.

Paul said...

I am out of musical metaphors for this team. Oh no i have gone instrumental. Kenny G?????

Paul said...

Dig me out from this thorn tree
Help me bury my shame
Keep my eyes from the fire
They can’t handle the flame
Grace cut out from my brothers
When most of them fell
I carry it well.

Let's hope some SOSG magic helps tomorrow.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Breaking out the old school vinyl

Paul McCartney And Wings Live!

Wings Across America

My Tio's old Albums

AAWWW YEAHHHHH!

Spank Raving Mad said...

I Haven't Evem hit 80's shit Fools

Sabes Que? I don't think I'm going too

FUCK YOU Kevin McReynolds

Fred's Brim said...

have fun at the SOSG Fest today. I really wish I could be there

Dusty Baker said...

I love the middle if the night Kevin McReynolds rage!

Fred's Brim said...

I am having middle-of-the-morning KMac rage. He can go to hell

Fred's Brim said...

Rosenturd reporting the White Sox made a play for Manny.

I like Manny, but if we could get some decent players for him (and his salary) at this point, I would jump on that in a second

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, I'm one of staunchest Manny defenders, but at this point, if we could get something decent in return for a clearly-declining, oft-injured player who can't really play day-to-day NL ball, and who obviously won't be back next season, then I'd pull the trigger in a heartbeat.

Dusty Baker said...

Rosenturd or Turdenthal?

Fred's Brim said...

I would almost do it if we could relieve all of the deferred money we owe him. Maybe we could send him to the White Sox and get them to pay his and Balloon Curacao's owed money

Dusty Baker said...

More news on ^ that ^ front:

Apparently WSox wanted Dodgers to pay for all but a million owed Manny and were not offering any players in the deal.

Did that break your concentration?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If I were Colletti, I'd slam the phone on the table, then hang up, just to let Kenny Williams know how absurd and ridiculous that idea is. I know Manny's old and washed up, but $1 mill? That's it? Not even some A-level backup catcher? Ridiculous.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Also, talks with Cubs for both Lilly and Theriot are still alive.

I soon won't be.

Fred's Brim said...

hmm that's interesting

wait, WHAT?

I guess that's about all we gave up (Andy LaRoche) to get him, but he's worth more than a mil. Send him to NY for whatever Berkman's worth

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The only reason I can think of for pursuing Theriot is that the team has admitted Blake is going nowhere, so they move DeWitt to third and put Theriot at second and stick Blake on the bench while DFAing GAARP. I guess I could live with that, though I doubt Colletti is smart enough to be thinking of that.

Fred's Brim said...

what's Lilly's deal? Is he under contract for a year or two more?

Dusty Baker said...

Pod Rays likely to get Ludlick from Shards.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lilly's got an expiring contract, which is why he's trade bait.

New wrinkle in Manny situation: Rays inquired on him, but "went nowhere with #Dodgers," so sayeth Joel Sherman of the NY Post.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

STOP IT WITH THAT LOGIC! We'll have none of that clear-headed thinking around these parts.

Dusty Baker said...

Rays get Qualls. HAHAHAHAHA! That guy is shite and he knows he is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Either teams are submitting really terrible offers for Manny, or Colletti is demanding the world in return for him. Either way, I'm feeling like he will eventually be moved, even if it goes into August.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jon Heyman says Manny would've taken a deal to the South Side, but that the Dodgers "want big prospects back."

Dusty Baker said...

Still seems to be some Manny/WhiSox chatter. We just can't part with him for nothin'.

Sacking of Mannywood soon to follow.

Fred's Brim said...

So the Padres would keep their shitty hitting shitty. I guess they needed somebody fill the gap left by Kevin Kouzmanoff

What do the shards get out of it?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rosenthal says ChiSox will still make a push for Manny. While I know $1 million straight up for him is highway robbery, I want Colletti to make the deal.

Dusty Baker said...

Turdenthal:

"It's a halfcourt shot, but it's still in the air: Source says #WhiteSox intend to make one more run at Manny today. "

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

*sorry, ^a^ deal. One with much better return.

Dusty Baker said...

I need coffee, lads...check in again in a few...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm not sure how trading DL guys works, but I think the Dodgers and whichever team they deal with need clearance from the Commissioner's office to complete the deal. So I don't know if it could go down to the wire.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MSTI clears things up. You don't need the commish's clearance.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One more post before I have a nosh: Steve Henson of Y!Sports says the Dodgers are looking at other OFs, even after getting Pods, hoping to trade Manny before the deadline.

Steve Sax said...

Get yer livers ready, gentlemen.

Trade deadline coincides with SoSG Fest 2010...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jayson Stark says Lilly and Theriot are both coming. No word on who the Dodgers would send back, except it wouldn't be Manny.

Dusty Baker said...

Liver: check

I mean I checked and it's still there, amazingly.
