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.

Kemp is in my doghouse and will not receive a nickname for tonight's game.

Mr. Customer said...

We may not win the division.

We may not even win the wild card.

All I ask is that the universe maintain some semblance of balance by allowing us to crush the hopes and dreams of every Giants fan, be they man, woman, or child.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

And that Blake and DeWitt bat next to each other.

Mr. Customer said...

Yes, that too.

Steve Sax said...

I don't get the Wanted reference...

Dusty Baker said...

Testing...1..2..Wash your hair, Timmeh!!!...testing...

MR. F said...

@Steve Sax
There are so many references I don't seem to get anymore.

Mr. Customer said...

@Sax

Yeah, me neither.

I want that light table, though.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr F, you really need to get out more!

rbnlaw said...

All I wanted was 2 out of 3 in Sam Diego. But no, couldn't have that, could I?

You go fuck yourselves San Diego.

No, on to the municipality by the body of water and across from Oakland.

Choke on your faux gras. Fake grass? Who eats that shit?

Surly. Feeling mighty surly.

Steve Sax said...

Just talked with Orel: the Wanted reference is the "Game Thread".

Damn, he's good.

Mr. Customer said...

@rbnlaw

Everyone's a bit krusty tonight. This thread is the left field pavilion of the soul.

Steve Sax said...

Rbnlaw, ladies and gentlemen!

Dusty Baker said...

The LFP of the soul...I love it! I resemble that!

WASH YOUR HAIR, TIMMEH!!!

karen said...

I'm with Mr.C. If we can't have a winning team then by god neither can the gnats. The Dodgers purpose in life tonite is to cause maximum pain and suffering to all asshole gnat fans

Dusty Baker said...

Then I sure hope that reports - RUMORS - re Gnats going for Bautista from Blue Jays are patently false.

Dusty Baker said...

John Soo Hoo pics being highlighted on pre-game right now.

Dusty Baker said...

EK essentially just called modern Gnats fans pussies. Still tha man, EK!

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

"These two organizations are back to hating each other." -Lyons after a Dodgers and Gnats hitting each others' batters montage in the pre-game.

Spank Raving Mad said...

AAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
FUCKING
YYYYEEAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!


Lets get rowdy up in here

Fred's Brim said...

Epale, everyone!

and Happy Halloween!

Josh S. said...

I'm at the Camarillo Outlets, Vinny!

Spank Raving Mad said...

That is why these teams blow. With there alternate jerseys or changing them every other year.

NO TRADITION

Fred's Brim said...

keep working him, Raffy!

Fred's Brim said...

great AB, kid

will that be the last good one we have tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

why are they booing Dre?
Because Manny is out and they have to boo somebody?

Fred's Brim said...

Raffy steals it

OP must have been interfered with or something

Dusty Baker said...

Cut your hair, Timmeh!!!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fuck you Posey! Toma

Dusty Baker said...

It's like a stadiumful of traffic cones. I have to adjust my TV screen.

Dusty Baker said...

Alright, JFL, remember you're away from home. #HRHint

Fred's Brim said...

Dre grounds out on ball 4

FJL with Raffy at 3rd, 2 outs

Dusty Baker said...

Dre just looks utterly out of sorts.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Swing You Bastard!

Fred's Brim said...

James is clean shaven tonight

ugh

shoulda kept the stubble

Dusty Baker said...

If I'm manager of a struggling team, I issue guidelines that go as such: HIT THE FUCKIN BALL. DON'T STATE AT GOD DAMNED STRIKE THREE!

Seriously, with a man on 3B and inability to generate runs lately, how do you just stare at strike 3?

Fred's Brim said...

@DB TVs should come with those Photoshop filters where you can change every instance of a color to another color

Fred's Brim said...

where do you think MonstaCheerios starts next year once we own him unconditionally? Will he be in ABQ to work on being a full-time starter?

Fred's Brim said...

so what are people drinking tonight? I am getting rid of some crappy Trader Joes beers

Dusty Baker said...

Dos XX amber for me>petite sirah with my pasta dinner once i get off my ass to cook it.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Yu mean TJ's brand beer? I kinda dig their Dos XX ripoff beers cause they're almost the same and cheaper.

Fred's Brim said...

damn - that came back across the plate

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

And was low.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Spanky Combo

IceHouse, Steel Reserve

Got the light popcorn tambien

Fred's Brim said...

somebody better issue a warning! nobody, but NOBODY, hits the Beard

Dusty Baker said...

Does the Spanky special go Ice House>Steel Reserve or the other way around?

Josh S. said...

I have some Firestone Pale waiting for me whenever the hell I get home.

Fred's Brim said...

run Casey run!

Dusty Baker said...

I purchased some Sam Adams pale ale to have sometime over the weekend. Anyone had it yet?

Dusty Baker said...

Oh shit. TBLA just reported that Theriot was pulled from the Cubs game early. Please no!

Mr. Customer said...

@FB

Arrogant Bastard Ale in hand.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Always Icehouse first.

Steel Reserve to knock me the fuck out.

BTW...Head and Shoulders TIMMEH

Fred's Brim said...

that was a tie

Fred's Brim said...

do something, Scotty P

Spank Raving Mad said...

Swing You Fuck!

MR. F said...

Karina's son!

Dusty Baker said...

mama said knock you out...steel reserve gonna knock you out!

Fred's Brim said...

@DB it says "Simpler Times" on the can. I have 2 lagers and 3 pilsners to work though. They taste like a $2.99-a-sixpack beer

MR. F said...

@DB (re Theriot),
That doesn't sound good.

Spank Raving Mad said...

@ Mr.C

You Arrogant Bastard You

Spank Raving Mad said...

Here comes the Posey love fest

Spank Raving Mad said...

Damn

Fred's Brim said...

damnation

NicJ said...

well, all downhill for here.

NicJ said...

see what happens when you actually swing the bat.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Sounds like something you want to - and can afford to - work through about 14-15 during a game.

Fred's Brim said...

Pat Burrell can go straight to hell

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange "swing the bat" concept you speak of?

Mr. Customer said...

@SRM

There is a certain symmetry to the beer selection.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB they are actually pretty high in the alcohol department (6.2% for the lager!)

Dusty Baker said...

Burrell can come over here and suck my ass and THEN go straight to hell.

Fred's Brim said...

I hear he's good at that

Dusty Baker said...

Now Rosenthal says "Theriot still a #Cub. Just a double switch."

Fred's Brim said...

*wipes brow*
phew!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fuck You Rosenthal.....GREMLIN

Dusty Baker said...

RAFFY GOD DAMNED FURCAL!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Homerun Fools!

Fred's Brim said...

Raffy!!!!
that was a bomb!

Fred's Brim said...

get that feeling again, Dre!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Get a perm TIMMEH!

Fred's Brim said...

that'll work!

Dusty Baker said...

Wash your skanky hair, Timmeh!!!!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Chente looked like he wanted to bean someone

Fred's Brim said...

haha Burrell looked like a beer-league softball player running after that one

Dusty Baker said...

Burrell looked like a beer leaguer with feces all over his face.

Mr. Customer said...

Who knew all we had to do to get our offense going was to face Timmeh.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fucking Idiot!

Dusty Baker said...

That was one of the lamest attempts at a slide I've seen. Ethier, man up!

Fred's Brim said...

crap

Fred's Brim said...

that's twice now.

Timmy might want to bat right-handed next time up

Spank Raving Mad said...

Rancho Notgoingtogetmyhopesupiendo!

Fred's Brim said...

just a fly ball, Joyce

Fred's Brim said...

Theriot could have done that

MR. F said...

Come on BDW! Hit a Grand Slam right before you get traded.

Fred's Brim said...

can Russ do it again?

Spank Raving Mad said...

Typical

Fred's Brim said...

of course not

NicJ said...

Outside of raffys solo shot that inning was a gigantic fail.

Fred's Brim said...

what's the score? feels like we are down 4-2

Spank Raving Mad said...

Toma! Sit down

Fred's Brim said...

ha! I love the mail-order-bride story

Fred's Brim said...

how the hell do you let that get into your bio?

Spank Raving Mad said...

Smoke another one Timmeh

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MLASF is the house-ish. Had a little dental work done, and feeling light headed. Though I'm just happy that the boys are winning, and yet saddened we've reached the quota for two runs so fast.

Also, per Jon Heyman, Cubs pulled Theriot. I'm not happy about what's coming.

Fred's Brim said...

howdy, MLASF! what did you have done?

Fred's Brim said...

damn - so close by Raffy

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Just had to have a problem tooth removed. Might have been wisdom.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I do not kid when I say this, but the first thing I said when I woke up was, "Did the Dodgers get Ted Lilly?"

Fred's Brim said...

did they gas you or did you go for the slug-of-whiskey-and-bite-on-a-stick method?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sedation. Very quick, and very potent.

Fred's Brim said...

what the eff

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit, Monny.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Bush League. Come on Mang!

Fred's Brim said...

haha
Dr. Tooth: "He's still delirious from the gas, better call his wife to come pick him up"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And Kemp. Dammit Kemp and Monny.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon fucker, end the inning so I can get another beer

Spank Raving Mad said...

Huff you IDIOT

Fred's Brim said...

this ump is no good

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm confused. Pitch 3 was the same as Pitch 5.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

Mr. Customer said...

Pissah.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Argh. Damn you, reanimated corps of Aubrey Huff.

Fred's Brim said...

meat
ball

Spank Raving Mad said...

BOOOOOOO!

Dusty Baker said...

If we lose at least I hope some of these asshole Gnats fans I see in the crowd get their heads kicked in by visiting Dodger ruffians.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is why I want Ted freakin' Lilly.

karen said...

With those ridiculously bright orange jerseys on the hated ones look like Cal trans workers on crack

NicJ said...

Can't score. Can't pitch. Can't field. Can't win.

Mr. Customer said...

If we lose by one, Matty gets to wear this one.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One of the most bizarre things this year is that, despite all of the Year of the Pitcher stuff, many aces of before are struggling like crazy. Lincecum, Greinke (tiny head), Oswalt, Sabathia, Beckett.

NicJ said...

And now lincecum will dominate the rest of the game.

Dusty Baker said...

Pods wears his socks properly. I respect that.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Yay Podsednik

Fred's Brim said...

balls

didn't need that with 2 outs

Spank Raving Mad said...

Good Hustle Raffy. I like that shit

Dusty Baker said...

So glad KFP didn't land on Raffy.

Good hustle. Cant complain re that.

NicJ said...

We would have stranded him at third anyways.

Dusty Baker said...

Right on Spanky.

Fred's Brim said...

currently enjoying: Utz Crab Chips
currently despising: the Giants

Spank Raving Mad said...

He tried to spark the team Dusty.

Monsters offspeed shit moves like a Mofo!
Check it out

Fred's Brim said...

so is that it for Monster? he's gotten through 4 innings and is over 60 pitches. he's gotta be tired. Lets bring in Jeff Weaver for 3 ineffective innings

Fred's Brim said...

is Roberto Kelly their 1st base coach?

Fred's Brim said...

and there's Jeffy warming up

Fred's Brim said...

Timmy's gotten into a groove

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fuck Robby Thompson

Fuck the Gnats

I'm in my own groove

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Buster Olney says Cubs/Dodgers are close to deal.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hate the reanimated corps of Huff.

Fred's Brim said...

gah giants fans make me sick

Spank Raving Mad said...

That was a major league play by Loney holding the runner

Fred's Brim said...

please no deal with the Cubs. those guys really arent going to help anything

Mr. Customer said...

God. The Rockies' hitting woke up all at once. 17-2 with more baseball to play.

Fred's Brim said...

I was about to thank Joe for leaving Monster in for this inning, but maybe that wasn't a good idea

Josh S. said...

I'm home.

Duff Gardens! Hurrah!

*head hits the horn*

Spank Raving Mad said...

Are the Cubs the only team we can trade with? Seems like it. Chicago anyways.

NicJ said...

This looks like a team that has given up. Body language sucks out there.

Fred's Brim said...

how is it only 3-2?

Josh S. said...

I hope they're getting Zambrano. Maybe he'll scare the shit out of everyone so they start winning.

Fred's Brim said...

i wish we would just hold steady with what we got, and sell by the end of August if things are still bad. Ted Lilly isnt going to change anything. If it means we have him for the next year or so, then maybe, but I hope we don't give up much for him

NicJ said...

I see the Rockies score but this game I'm watching right now feels like a bigger beatdown.

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

Fred's Brim said...

there's a 22 year old girl from Philly with a 5-year old son cheering for daddy right now

Neeebs said...

We already scored our quota. Done!

BTW, watching the game on Fox-Mexico.

Fred's Brim said...

@Josh - that would be interesting. He's owed a lot of money, though, right?

NicJ said...

FB, could not agree with you more. Lilly ain't fixing this team. We have underachieved all year.

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck you, sandwich boy.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Great

Fred's Brim said...

@Neeebs I think that's called Foxico

Josh S. said...

Excuse me a moment...

WAKE UP, ASSHOLES! YOUR SEASON IS SLIPPING AWAY AND YOU'RE STANDING THERE WITH YOUR THUMBS IN YOUR TAINTS!!!.

karen said...

I hate this

Fred's Brim said...

a taint-thumbing would be more pleasurable than this

Fred's Brim said...

me too, karen

Mr. Customer said...

Spank Raving Mad said...

No. Fuck No!

I Ain't giving up.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm gettin' kinda ornery.

Fred's Brim said...

and to think, I recommended Weaver for the 7th inning/second setup man role when we were running Sherril/Trashner/TrashMiller/etc out there to lose games

Fred's Brim said...

@MR C - me too. More beer will help that, right?

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

He's still the best of the four you just mentioned.

Which is fucking pathetic.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fuck That. I lived through 1988. I was fucking there. This ain't shit man. Fuck You Giants. Here me FUCKING ROAR!!!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

ach why couldn't that have been Burrell out there

NicJ said...

if its any consolation, the giants aint winning shit either.

NicJ said...

Pods finally gets a hit, with no men on.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Pinch Hit for this Fuck

Fred's Brim said...

you got any magic in that bat, Dre?

Mr. Customer said...

Spanky's unbounded rage is, by far, the most entertaining thing about this game.

You gotta redeem your week of futility here Dre.

Spank Raving Mad said...

No Fucking Guts

NicJ said...

what is that like 18 K's looking?

Fred's Brim said...

christ

Mr. Customer said...

That was awful, Andre.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon James, just a hit, get us closer

NicJ said...

fuck this team.

Mr. Customer said...

We blow.

Spank Raving Mad said...

No Fucking Heart

NicJ said...

My hopes for this team went from win the division, to win the WC, and is now closing in on "well maybe we can just knock the giants out of the playoffs later"

Spank Raving Mad said...

Remember Brett Butler full of cancer trying his hardest to even run to first base. Look at these fools barely able to get the bat off their shoulders

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Of our seven hits, six have come from the front four, with Raffy providing half of that. That's pathetic. You get your leadoff men on, and that's all you can muster? That really is just sad. One hit from the back four.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

turned on the tv when my son struck out on the 6th,after a looooooooooong day.

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

Was very hungry, since my last meal was at 6:30 am but I'm not anymore.

This is my fault.I'm sure.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'M GOING TO MURDER AUBREY HUFF

Mr. Customer said...

Go to hell, Audrey.

NicJ said...

Just kicking around the lifeless corpse of the dodgers.
