Game 92 Thread: July 18 @ Cards, 11a

Vicente Padilla (4-2, 4.04) vs. Jeff Suppan (0-3, 4.88 ERA).

COMMENTS: INCEPTION is a film about a man hired to infiltrate people's dreams. It blew my mind. You know what else would blow my mind? If the Dodgers actually won a damn game after the All-Star break. After enduring the Carpenter-Garcia-Wainwright gauntlet, their best chance to win is today, against Suppan. Can the Boys in Blue break through? You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.

I'm going to see this movie in just a bit. Going to Tivo the game so I'l be a bit behind.

Steve Sax said...

@DB: The Dodgers are a bit behind, too.

Dusty Baker said...

Pooholes sitting today. Suppan pitching. We got this.

I'm not so sure we got this.

karina said...

Don't lose hope...anyway home games against the Giants and Mets coming up this week.

Epale everyone!

Neeebs said...

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGG.

I had to get that out of my system.

Neeebs said...

Y Epale tambien!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'll be seeing Inception today as well.

rbnlaw said...

This is no way to carry on;
Ain't no way to live.
But they can put up with it for a little while,
They were working on something big.

Sherrill on his waiver status (from today's Register):

"I guess the bloggers know more about it than I do."

Josh S. said...

Someone get these guys the message that Suppan sucks.

NicJ said...

Does it worry anyone else that they keep saying Suppan hasn't won a game in a year? Like we are being set up.

Orel said...

The Dodgers actually hit into three outs on only two pitches in the first inning. Really!

rbnlaw said...

Believe me, Suppan worries me right now. We're losing regulars faster than the last season of Laugh-In, and he's primed for a breakthrough.

Hold on tight lady and gentlemen.

karina said...

Guys, I know they haven't played to their potential, but it's the first inning.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Is it just me, or has Belliard been pretty useless so far this season?

karina said...

Is it me or DeWitt hits when he can't drive some runs or he always seem to be left on base?

NicJ said...

That was a pretty horrible jump by kemp. Worked for us though.

MR. F said...

I saw Inception yesterday. I really enjoyed it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Padilla looked better in that AB than Ellis in his. That cannot be a good sign.

MR. F said...

Seemed like a bad pitch to swing at, but it's a single for Bison.

NicJ said...

Lyons is annoying as hell to listen to when he talks about the "right" way to play.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least we've made Nutsacks look like an idiot today.

rbnlaw said...

Belli busts out.

karina said...

@Mr LASF Belliard heard you and got a lead off single.

Hey Dodgers, this is Suppan, it's allright if you hit him.

MR. F said...

We're in business!

karina said...

we were, Mr F...

MR. F said...

Awesome!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yay!

karina said...

I really hope this is a deserted GT because everybody is busy having fun and not because everybody is disappointed of these post ASG Dodgers.

NicJ said...

Padilla finally had enough of this BS.

karina said...

Padilla RBI double! wow!

karina said...

Padilla told himself "if you want everything done, do it yourself"

MR. F said...

All we get is 1 run. Oh well. I have to run off myself. Hopefully the Dodgers could add more runs. Later guys!

rbnlaw said...

BATTLETOAD!

karina said...

C-mon Battletoad, if you are going to give free passes, bean them, not walk them!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't like this.

Josh S. said...

SUCK IT, NUTSACK!

Josh S. said...

BelliToo doesn't like our criticism.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I am the Reverse MSTI.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WAAAAAAAAA?!?!?!?!?!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We might actually win a game against St. Louis!

karina said...

what? GAARP double...I hope to see our MSB teaching a lesson to those Cards!

Josh S. said...

Wow. GAARP crossed the plate!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Everything's coming up Milhouse!

karina said...

@Josh S someone should give GAARP the ball he hit for double and the home plate, after the game is finished :)

Josh S. said...

Ihop Reyes!

Dusty Baker said...

Just saw Inception. Making sure I'm not dreaming. Are we really ahead 4-0? *spins little top*

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

We got this.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

T-Slick!

karina said...

So, @Mr LASF, are T-Slick and Monasterios the future of this organization?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Schumaker vs Schlichting

Only one Sch can win.

karina said...

Shumacher won, just for this time.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Karina - Monasterios moreso than T-Slick.

Dusty Baker said...

Schit yea!

Bryan said...

The story behind Skip's nickname sounds sounds like his dad is trying to torment and bully him as a kid by ignoring his athelticism and only pointing out his inabilities.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Schlichting beats Schumaker in the battle of the Schs.

karina said...

GameDay is playing tricks with me.

@Mr LASF I feel like designing a shirt: Monasterios is the future of the Dodgers organization

rbnlaw said...

What the heck does that 4 mean next to the Dodgers at the top of my TV screen?

T. Slick is the long lost Weaver brother.

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
We'll have Erin make that statement into a button.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw believe or not, the Dodgers are winning, it's not a dream.

I think we should campaign because I suspect the Dodgers are going to let Monasterios go.

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
I'm having a hell of a time following your tweets. Something about a big brother adopting a sister?

rbnlaw said...

Don't worry about the Monster Cheerio. He's a Rule V FA, and we hate giving anything back to the Yank-mes.

Besides, he's been way more effective than Flat Breezy.

Steve Sax said...

Garret Anderson gets a run-scoring double.

As Inception's tag says, "The Dream Is Real."

Steve Sax said...

shit, DB already used that line at 1:25p.

Well, in GAARP's case, even a stopped clock is right two times a day.

rbnlaw said...

@Sax:
Or the nightmare continues.

Actually, GAARP has sucked less these days, but I bet his WAR is lousy.

Steve Sax said...

AJ Ellis is hitting like GAARP levels

karina said...

@Rbnlaw I'm kinda embarrased for pestering your TL with twits in Spanish but I love the hashtag: #WhenIWasaChild.

That tweet is: my older brother always told me I was adopted because according to him I was too weird to be his sister, I always cried and my mom had to show me pictures: when she was pregnant of me, when I was a newborn, etc etc.She even said: you were the only one who was planned, your brothers just happened (take that, karina's brothers), though I didn't understand what she meant at the time.

Funny thing is, my older brother still sustains I'm too weird to be his biological sister.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I thought Monney was Philly property.

I don't see the club getting rid of him. He's been pretty good this year, and there's no real reason to send him away (we have Schlichting who would likely be demoted if anything happened with Tron or Belly).

rbnlaw said...

Yup. -1.3 WAR for GAARPY.

Vlad Guerrero has a WAR of 2.4, but he's a DH.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Also, there's three empty spots on the 40-man roster, so if anybody is acquired via trade, there's more room for adjustment than usual.

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
I think I told my brother the same thing. . .just last week.

MLASF,
We're both wrong: He was Mets property.

rbnlaw said...

T. Slick has looked OK, just some shaky control today.

rbnlaw said...

Manny who?

karina said...

@Rbnlaw older siblings are cruel by nature

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Mets took him in the Rule V draft from Philly, and then gave him to the Dodgers, so techinically, if the Dodgers release him, he goes back to the Phillies.

rbnlaw said...

Tattooed love boy coming on.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Miller the Tattooed Lady time.

rbnlaw said...

MLASF,
That clears that up. He ain't a leavin'.

@karina:
Yes we are.

karina said...

Tattooed Lady always get me nervous

Dusty Baker said...

I think we still got this.

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
Just found the translation button on twitter.

All is well now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Aw crap.

Josh S. said...

Miller is about as refreshing as the beer that bears his name.

That is to say, not very much.

rbnlaw said...

Tell me that wasn't the guy hitting less than a buck.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm wondering why Torre pulled Padilla when he was only at 80 pitches.

rbnlaw said...

Brox threw 98 in Anaheim. Wonder if he can do it in Saint Looie.

rbnlaw said...

That's some heat.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hate St. Louis.

Josh S. said...

Shizzzzzz.

Gonna need some runs in the 9th.

rbnlaw said...

This is far more interesting than I'd like it to be.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't take this. I'm out.

karina said...

This ain't easy

rbnlaw said...

Uncle Charlie.

Anyone else having fun?

rbnlaw said...

99 on the gun. Smoke!

Steve Sax said...

i can't take this

NicJ said...

Yay!

One more inning though.

Shit!

Steve Sax said...

holy smokes, I can't believe it

pujols grounds out

karina said...

Pujols grounded out, the Dodgers are still winning!

I couldn't breathe while looking at GameDay.

rbnlaw said...

Well, that was close.

rbnlaw said...

C'mon people. It's only July.
We can weather this.

I sound a little like karina, don't I?

karina said...

@Rbnlaw never give up!

karina said...

@Rbnlaw I was about to say this is a "post ASG adjustment"

rbnlaw said...

Franklin is not that impressive.

Josh S. said...

Fooky! Bad camerawork.

karina said...

If we call insurance, insurance will come...

rbnlaw said...

This is taking forever.

rbnlaw said...

Sac bunt, and the St. Louie fans lose their heads!

rbnlaw said...

Manny who?

rbnlaw said...

XPaul looking to solidify the job next season.

Outstanding catch.

rbnlaw said...

John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and Cardinal rookie.

rbnlaw said...

Last 3 pitches have been 96, 98, and 99.

rbnlaw said...

How was that pitch outside? Freaking hometown call.

rbnlaw said...

I want this to end, NOW!

rbnlaw said...

Throw the fucking HEAT!

rbnlaw said...

Fuck me in the armpit.

My battery is dying, as is my will to cheer on the Dodgers.

Spanky said...

That Sucked

NicJ said...

I believe I called for a blown save loss yesterday.

karina said...

Brox, just one out, please?

Spanky said...

Unfuckingbelievable

Josh S. said...

Yeah, so...

Hmmm.

Uh...

Welp.

karina said...

I hate Matt Holliday, I hate St. Louis.

Josh S. said...

A 5-out save in that heat is very, VERY tough. It shouldn't have gotten to that point.

I put this one on Miller. (Just so the blame game is fresh. Blaming Torre and Brox is so played out.)

karina said...

I'm with you, Josh. This is Miller's fault.

I can't believe this. I only hope they are so pissed off at these results that they'll revenge on Giants.

Josh S. said...

We swept the Giants after our last humiliating series loss. I think we're in good shape.

NicJ said...

Haha, if you really look at the fact the the all time series was us being up four games on the Cards it was totally set up for us to get swept here.

Its a little sad that i expect this when we make our way to STL. We just cant beat them here.

NicJ said...

Quite the abusive relationship that we are all in with the dodgers.

Josh S. said...

Rox won, Giants down 1-0, Padres/Dbags tied at 3.

NicJ said...

SD actually up 4-3 on AZ.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up. I'm outta here.

Josh S. said...

Maybe it's the Padres' year. It kills me to say it, but it's not a fluke anymore. They're doing something unheard of; winning baseball games. Dodgers ought to try that sometime.

(Note: The preceding may have been typed to jinx the Pods. I will neither confirm nor deny.)

karina said...

@NicJ what do you mean with abusive? that we still love them even if they don't love us back? or that they are playing with our minds?

Neeebs said...

Wow!

(I have nothing else to say.)

NicJ said...

Abusive, Treat us badly with crushing defeats like today and sometimes just plain poor effort. Then they will go and play well against the giants and have us feeling all good again.

Like when someone cheats on their partner and buys them a gift to smooth it over.

Its a vicious cycle.

Table said...

Inception blew your mind? It was basically a Matrix remake with imagery taken from Kubric, and the same Leonardo from Shutter Island. Meh.
