Game 82 Thread: July 5 vs. Fish, 6p

John Ely (4-5, 3.62) vs. Nate Robertson (5-6, 4.97).

COMMENTS: Fare thee well, NL West opponents, who the Dodgers won't see again until after the All-Star break. After escaping from the icy clutches of interleague play (4-11 record) to the warm embrace of intradivision play (23-6), the Dodgers must now venture into the no-man's land of interdivision play (too lazy to look up record). Former Tiger Robertson has faced the Dodgers only twice in his career, going 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA over 11 innings. Meanwhile, Elymania has a chance to even up his record against the fourth-place Marlins, and to get the Dodgers within three games of the idle Padres.

SoSG Delino and Sax will be representing at tonight's game, so holler if you're there!

Represent well at Blogger Night!

Paul said...

Lookin back on sunsets on the east side. We lost track of the time. Some dreams aren't what they use to be. Somethings slide by so carelessly.

Smile like you mean it.

karina said...

@Paul nothing like a The Killers song to get me pumped up for a Dodgers game and a GT.


p.d that's the best The Killers album, on heavy rotation in my life since its release.

Paul said...

This line up is giving me good vibes for some reason.

Paul said...

@Karina.

I can't argue that point. Some songs on sawdust are awesome but from start to finish Hot Fuss is incredible.

Paul said...

Ely your a star!! In nobody's eyes but ours!!

karina said...

@Paul 100% agree.

I'm wasting time thinking on a #ElyMania tweet. I do that only for superstitious purposes.

Neeebs said...

You guys can take The Killers. I'll take The Flaming Menudos.

Betsy said...

I will see ya'l there, wearing my vintage 80's steve sax national league all start shirt. where are you guys sitting?

Steve Sax said...

We are talking with Colletti right now. Any questions you want me to ask?

Steve Sax said...

Betsy, we are in a suite tonight...

Paul said...

Does he know of any low price deals?

Steve Sax said...

He said no

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oooooh! Oooooh! Oooooh!

Ask him to DFA Anderson!

Paul said...

The flaming menudos just haven't caught fire here in the states Neeebs. But you guys are hugeee in Nauru!!

Steve Sax said...

Oh wait, he was talking about BMWs

Paul said...

Does he have to pay for his own bottled water now?

Any chance of adding bench depth and dropping some players not soo deep.

Steve Sax said...

Asked, but you won't like the answer. "he's sill a threat sometimes". I hope he meant for the Dodgers and not to the Dodgers.

Paul said...

Ask him if he will scream "wow that's a low price!" just once!!

Steve Sax said...

My last comment was re: GAARP

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Does he think that, with high foreign market volatility, now is a good time to invest in bonds?

Also, could you petition for "Miller the Tattooed Lady" merchandise?

And something for Monasterios too.

Josh S. said...

Ask him if he's proud of Kemp's slump.

Just kidding.

Josh S. said...

I guess he is a threat...1.8 times out of 10.

Paul said...

Just like that my vibes aren't so good.

karen said...

Is it going to be the good twin Ely or the evil twin Ely?

Josh S. said...

18-19 is the record you guys are missing from the GT post, btw.

Fred's Brim said...

damn - that would have been a DP

epale, everyone

Josh S. said...

@karina: Ely. Daylight. Do I have to spell it out further?

Paul said...

Ask Dusty he should know which one is on the mound tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

When do we play the NL West again?

Josh S. said...

Sneaky, guys.

karen said...

Epale FB

Josh S. said...

Ignore that sneaky comment. Blogger is being stupid.

Fred's Brim said...

there we go.
seemed more like an unlucky inning than a bad inning

Fred's Brim said...

newly-retired crypt-keeper Larry King sitting 3 rows back

Fred's Brim said...

Nate Robertson, born in Wichita, KS, the Fresno of the midwest

Fred's Brim said...

Dre licking his chops at the sight of a righty

karina said...

@Steve Sax 5:05 "still a threat" is not good enough

Fred's Brim said...

oops no - he's a lefty
nevermind!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty fooled by the down-and-in curve. Let's see if he picks that up better later in the game

Fred's Brim said...

hi karen - how was your weekend?

Paul said...

Native Fresnan FB. Sadly I take that as a compliment.

Fred's Brim said...

the ump is not giving Ely that highish strike

karina said...

I forgot (I also do it for superstitious purposes)

Epale everyone!

karina said...

@Betsy love your style, girl :)

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, kid, find the zone

Fish with a double to start the inning

Fred's Brim said...

aww crap - throw gets away from Casey and Stanton scored

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't like this. I'm going to do something else right now.

karina said...

Is still any sunlight in Miami?

karen said...

@FB Thanks for asking!

My bestfriend came in from Huntington Beach and we watched Dodger baseball and made party all weekend

Fred's Brim said...

Ely finishes the inning with 2 Ks

karen said...

Looks like it's Ely's evil twin so far tonight

Fred's Brim said...

Casey with the big double!

Fred's Brim said...

@karen
we had a similar weekend. Friends came up from Virginia Beach, I was forced to watch Yankee baseball and made party all weekend! I wish we could have exchanged the stankee yankees for the Dodgers

Fred's Brim said...

FJL isn't seeing the pitches very well

Paul said...

RBI man up.

Fred's Brim said...

Loney's chopper gets Casey to 3rd.

Cmon Russ, get that run in!

Paul said...

Oops not this time. Come on Russ get that run back.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Russ! we're on the board!

karen said...

WooHoo Karina's son!

Fred's Brim said...

RJ with a grounder past SS, Russ to 2nd

Meaniebreanie said...

Epale y'all. I hope everyone had a great weekend!

karina said...

Why is the game delayed?

Karen, that sounds like a perfect weekend.

Josh S. said...

All of my comments have been wiped from the thread. WTF, Blogger?

NicJ said...

i dont think Ely is fooling anyone tonight.

NicJ said...

I just got here and the game is already over.

Fred's Brim said...

shite - I go away for 2 seconds and we gag a scoring opportunity and let them score 2 more runs. What happened?

and where did some of the comments go?

NicJ said...

Pitcher RBI.

I think that'll do it.

Fred's Brim said...

what the christ, the pitcher with a hit off Evil Ely

unacceptable

Fred's Brim said...

and he's done

I may be too

karina said...

It's my fault, I didn't tweet anything about #ElyMania

Spanky said...

Alrighty Then! Ely's gone already

karina said...

I also think Blogger is eating my comments.

Just in case:

Epale, everyone! (this is my superstition)

@Karen that sounds like a perfect weekend

@Betsy love your style, girl :)

NicJ said...

Two starting pitcher implosions in the past run through the rotation.

Fred's Brim said...

blogger broken again?
Dodgers playing the NL East again?

Orel said...

I hope my colleagues are enjoying their suite tonight because this game blows so far.

Meaniebreanie said...

This is one of those games where you drink to try to forget what you are seeing.

Spanky said...

Lookit Larry King all sad by himself.

Fred's Brim said...

gonna need some big hits to get back into this one, something like a 3-R homer *ahem FJL*

NicJ said...

Hanley being Hanley.

karen said...

We'll take it!!

Spanky said...

Belly2 with the headsup baserunning.

Where's everyone at?

Fred's Brim said...

Wow Belli2 with a heads up play! With Ramirez on the ground and not paying attention after Kemp (yes Kemp!) stole second, Ronny sneaks home

Fred's Brim said...

and Ramirez prevents another run with a stab of a Loney liner

karina said...

The Marlins are giving away runs! go Dodgers!

Jason said...

Awfully quite in here today.

Jason said...

^ err... quiet

Mr. Customer said...

Blogger dead?

Jason said...

Raffy power!

Strange, I haven't felt the Dodgers were out of this game despite the rough start.

karina said...

Raffy power! this is a ballgame, Marlins 6-Dodgers 4

Meaniebreanie said...

It's getting closer :D

Orel said...

Dead thread?

Dusty Baker said...

The Fresno of the Midwest...don't know if that says more about Fresno or the Midwest. Either way, I'm glad I live in neither though I respect any who do.

I've written a little ode to gin and this is how it goes:

We love you gin, Oh we love you gin
You mingle so well with your cousin tonic!
Tonic tonic tonic tonic Tonic tonic tonic tonic
You mingle so well with your sister lime!

rbnlaw said...

What happened? I turned away for a few hours while the kids float down a river on some tubes, and the Dodgers lose to a bunch of fish?

Give me the NL west, now!

I'm all giddy about going to the Shiner, TX tomorrow (actually today according to my current time zone).

Steve Sax said...

What the heck happened to the comments here?

Josh S. said...

Testing...

Steve Sax said...

testing as well

Spanky said...

What was that all about? Thought I was having flashbacks.

Steve Sax said...

now all the comments are disappearing. this is ridiculous.

Dusty Baker said...

I like how every time I refresh it displays a different number of comments. And the comments seem to be dwindling in number. We're going to lose this masterful insight to history! Do something now!

Steve Sax said...

It's weird, if you go into the actual post itself, you can see 107 comments, but I'm looking at 9 comments once I get to the "leave your comment" page.

Blogger is making me consider wordpress.
