Game 107 Thread: Aug 3 vs. Padres, 7p

Ted Lilly (3-8, 3.69) vs. Mat Latos (11-4, 2.45).

COMMENTS: Have you ever seen a melting glacier? I'm told it's breathtaking. The beginning isn't easy to discern; maybe a few shards of ice breaking off here and there. But then larger chunks begin to plummet to the ocean, and then you become aware of a low thrum — the sound of a large implosion. Then slowly but surely the entire facade begins to crumble, and the structure of the thing becomes unstable. By now huge pieces are falling off in a deafening roar. And before you know it, you're looking at a once-majestic figure that's a mere shadow of its former self.

Really we award Lilly with a GAARP ab? I hate this team.

Betsy said...

I couldn't posts my comment cause blogger said we were all posting at the same time - looks like we were all referencing GAARP

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Sax - So would you consider Lilly's start "legendary?"

Josh S. said...

Maybe GAARP will help Lilly out since Garret was friends with Theodore Roosevelt in high school.

rbnlaw said...

I swear, if GAARP goes yard, I will lose my mind.

NicJ said...

Too be fair guys, Martin did fuck up his leg a little earlier in the game.

Naw, fuck fair. That motherfucker needs to hustle his ass down the line.

Steve Sax said...

GA was a DECOY!

Brilliant!!!

rbnlaw said...

Ha! Joke's on us.

Still Belli's not much better.

Josh S. said...

Wouldn't ANYONE want to pitch to GAARP?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh, it was a bait and switch for Belly2.

I'd still prefer Lilly.

Mr. Customer said...

At least GAARP is still good for that purpose.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker awwwwww,thanks.Changed it because you agreed, however I'll be changing avatars 'till the Dodgers starts winning again, I have a list of previous successful ones.

rbnlaw said...

SHOULDER GNOME!!!

Paul said...

I wish Belly would get on a roll. That would be nice.

Josh S. said...

We want GAARP!

Steve Sax said...

Wait, the decoy was about as effective as the real thing!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was totally worth pulling Lilly for.

rbnlaw said...

At least GAARP would've flied out to right.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SF, don't mind if I use that for the PGT. Thank you!

Legen....

wait for it...

especially if you're Latos-intolerant...

DAIRY

Paul said...

Yeah that was worth taking Lilly out.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul 9:08: Oh, Belly is indeed on a roll. Or two. Or three.

NicJ said...

if the bullpen goes on to blow this game just because Joe Torre wanted to use one of his crappy benchmen with a man on first im going to...

Never mind, i dont even really care anymore.

Josh S. said...

Let's go sudden rainstorm!

Steve Sax said...

Wait a minute.

If we beat the Padres, we HELP the Giants.

That changes everything.

Dusty Baker said...

Ethier just came up the dugout steps while Lilly was walking down. Dre shot a look like "Who the fuck are you?"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

AHAHAHAHA THE GIANTS ARE ROOTING FOR US AHAHAHAHA WHO'S THE REAL WINNER NOW HUH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

(returns to fetal position)

Spank Raving Mad said...

I still can't believe they switched pitchers just for GAARP

rbnlaw said...

Kuo looks sharp.

Paul said...

Lilly maybe soy sorry the Dodgers are latos-intollerant

Dusty Baker said...

*Blogger burp*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm guessing Martin really did hurt his leg since Ausmus is in now. No matter, at least we have some depth at catcher in the min-

oh wait.

NicJ said...

Jansen can be back up catcher, he sure aint pitching very often.

Paul said...

Torre seems to managing in panic mode ever since the break. Well he needs to be now.

Josh S. said...

Stubborn dumbass probably hurt himself worse staying in the game. Earlier, his knee clearly buckled when he caught a third strike and he got up to throw it back.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Headley

Steve Sax said...

38K in attendance. Right.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If the offense was impotent before, wait until Ellis becomes the everyday starter. At least it will give the team a glimpse at what the team would be like without Martin.

NicJ said...

if you are hitting that poorly on the right hand side are you really even a switch hitter?

rbnlaw said...

It's Head-ly, not Head-dy.

Paul said...

Martin needs to find his penguin and slide.

Dusty Baker said...

If there are 38,886 in attendance, Sasquatch exists.

Spank Raving Mad said...

lamar

Steve Sax said...

Josh S, the Ted Lily gag was yours, right, just want to attribute correctly...

Josh S. said...

Time to eat some Taco Bell, fellas. You need the runs.

Paul said...

Well looks like we need to rebuild this team
around Kuo and Lilly.

Josh S. said...

Yah, that was mine.

Josh S. said...

rbn: Don't remind me. Steiner makes that joke every. single. time. they play the Pads.

Paul said...

In the words of FB "Dont stop relievin"

NicJ said...

martin has 24 RBI in 328 AB.

Ellis has 8 RBI in 49.

and the margin was actually a lot closer at the time ellis left.

Martin does score a lot more runs, but he also hit leadoff for a bit.

Josh S. said...

How pissed is Lilly that he still has to rely on Theriot for run support?

NicJ said...

what is the crowd chanting?

rbnlaw said...

Alright. Let's get this over with.

Josh S. said...

Vin: "And now it's that time..."

The time when we cry, cuss, and drink a lot?

rbnlaw said...

Josh,
I suppose I could go to the Slim Whitman quotes.
"Somebody go back and get me a shitload of dimes."

Might be appropriate right now.

Paul said...

Bubba don't blow it.

Paul said...

This umpire's zone is like a sosg off day puzzle.

Mr. Customer said...

*covers eyes*

karina said...

Fasten your seat belts, boys and girls.

NicJ said...

it starts.

I think everyone knows broxton is going to throw a fastball.

rbnlaw said...

Here we go (said in a depressed way).

Paul said...

Broxton's fastball is flatter than a coors light.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Le sigh.

Here we go.

rbnlaw said...

Just throw, Fatman.

Dusty Baker said...

Mommy, can we leave the light on? I'm scared.

Dusty Baker said...

Get this goddamned win so I can take off my tie and shoes.

NicJ said...

DB, if we blow it you can just hang yourself with the tie.

rbnlaw said...

arrrrrgh.

Josh S. said...

Let's knock off the Iron Man riff until the dominance comes back.

rbnlaw said...

Let's get this win so I can take of my pants and jacket.

Sorry, just had to.

NicJ said...

no iron man guitar riff on productive outs please!

Paul said...

Another mistake.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Would it kill Torre to use a standard infield just once against AGon? Just once?

Dusty Baker said...

It even sounds like they're playing Iron Man half-assed.

Dusty Baker said...

First pitch miss every time.

NicJ said...

are we seriously pitching to get to Ludwick??!!??

Torre you fool.

rbnlaw said...

This does not bode well.

Josh S. said...

Ludwick? Oh balls.

Paul said...

I really wanted a 123 inning.

karen said...

I can't watch

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

You will get a 123 inning. The Pod Rays started with 1, then they'll get another, then another.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Doesn't Torre know that Ludwick cannot die? He's like Doomsday, always coming back stronger.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

UP JUMPS THE FUCKING DEVIL!!!

Josh S. said...

OH THANK CHRIST!

NicJ said...

Paul, the 123 will come in the bottom half of the inning.

Or not.

Dusty Baker said...

Up jumps the devil!

Mr. Customer said...

Ho-lee crap. We won?

karen said...

OH YEAH!!!!!

rbnlaw said...

GEDP?????

What do we do now??

WE MAKE PARTY!

Spank Raving Mad said...

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG

Eric said...

Thank goodness the devil jumped up for us this time...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't know how to feel just now.

NicJ said...

RANDY NEWMAN FINALLY GETS A MOTHERFUCKING LICENSING CHECK!!!!!!

Betsy said...

awesome

Paul said...

We make party??!? Well we don't make tears!!!

rbnlaw said...

PANTS OFF!!

NicJ said...

still only scored two runs.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up! WE WIN!!!!

Eric said...

Randy was probably thinking his beer money dried up until Laker season the way things have been going...

Dusty Baker said...

I can't remember how to...how you say...make party.

Eric said...

Thank goodness the devil jumped up for us this time...

Paul said...

Karina might want to put Ted Lilly on her shoulder.
