Scoreboard Watching: NL West Games of Note (July 1)

Another Dodgers off-day, what is there to occupy us?

The Giants kickoff against the Rockies at 5.40p, with "Ashley" Madison Bumgarner (0-1, 5.14) up against Aaron Cook (2-5, 4.69). The Rockies are two games behind us in third place; the Giants are 2.5 GB us in fourth place.

The real game of interest, however, kicks off at 7p, when the Astros play the Padres at the big pooch bowl. Brian Moehler (1-4, 5.63) duels Clayton Richard (5-4, 2.75). With the Padres three games ahead of us in first place, sporting the NL's best record, and the 'Stros 17 games below .500 with the league's second-to-worst record, I'm not hopeful about this one. But I'll probably watch anyway.

Stupid Giants.

Paul said...

Best finishing move? I like the tombstone or the flying elbow.

Dusty Baker said...

No DL for Manny!

Dusty Baker said...

Rox up 4-3 in the 7th.

Gerald hit a HR.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Gameday has become really commercialized.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And the D-Backs have fired Hinch.

Paul said...

I am glad Manny isn't too banged up. I hope this doesn't mess with his recent hot streak. He really doesn't have much left it those legs but he is going the other way like crazy. I think they should consider him at the 2 spot.

Dusty Baker said...

Former Colt 45s up over Pod Rays early 3-0

Dusty Baker said...

5-3 Rox

Paul said...

It works everytime.

Josh S. said...

@Paul: Skullfucka Buster?

Dusty Baker said...

I remember when Colt 45 briefly went from "Works Every Time" to "Every Time. No Doubt."

They had me at malt liquor. And the $1.99 price tag.

Steve Sax said...

Rox over Giants 7-3 in the ninth, but that game is a push from the standings...

'stros up 3-nil on the Pods in the fourth? That lead won't last.

Steve Sax said...

Great news on Manny, thanks for relaying the good word

Paul said...

Gibby? Nooooooo! Eh still the Dbags.

@Josh

When I clicked on the link I was half expecting to see Barry Bonds.

Peeps!
I'm in El Paso, TX at a wonderful Comfort Suites with free wi fi.

On the TV, I get the Stros and Pod Rays because, get this, I'm in Texas. Is that some crazy shit, or what? Who actually wants to watch the Stros?

I was also watching the Rangers and Angels (see exclamation above), and they sound genuinely excited to get Ben Mo! Go figure.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and here's a tip: When ordering wings from Pizza Hut, don't believe them when they say "medium."
Those fuckers are HOTT!

rbnlaw said...

5 beers have helped make this game almost interesting.
Just can't get used to scorebored watching with the Pods.

rbnlaw said...

Fucking Pods. Making a game of it.
Still, I'm tired and we're an hour ahead deep in the heart of Texas. . .kind of.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm watching both these games, too, RB. Greetings from SoCal!

Dusty Baker said...

Some girl was holding a sign that said "Goo Halos". Goo?

Oh, go.

Steve Sax said...

Houston is crumbling 3-2 , 2 out, Pod on second

Dusty Baker said...

To all the Manny haters:

"Ramirez has donated a 1994 911 Porsche Turbo 3.6 to the Dodgers' ThinkCure charity, which will auction the car on EBay." -- LA Times

Dusty Baker said...

Tied up in SD 3-3.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, Pods tied it up

Dusty Baker said...

Did yall see this about the Kemp/Schaefer spat?

Josh S. said...

I figured Kemp fought with Bowa for sending him to get thrown out at the plate.

Dusty Baker said...

That's what I had figured, too.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Definitely something happened on Saturday to warrant benching him for nearly three straight games. It wasn't that he was sucking; he was doing that for some time.

Paul said...

So Kemp was thrown out at the plate on Saturday? The only game the Dodgers won against the yanks. The only game I couldn't see because of stupid regional broadcasting.

Thanks Fox for ruining the Dodgers for me after all these years.

Josh S. said...

Yay Colt 45s! Keep it up!

Josh S. said...

Hey, a closer making Matt Stairs look stupid. How novel.

Josh S. said...

2.5 back, homies.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, astros with 3 in the top of the tenth to win!
