Game 109 Thread: Aug 5 vs. Padres, 7p

Chad Billingsley (9-5, 3.78) vs. Kevin Correia (7-7, 5.06).

COMMENTS: What have we here? The Dodgers in position for a series win against the (barely) first-place Padres? Bills has a tough act to follow — Vicente's Padilla's two-hit CG shutout of the Padres. But heck, if the Dodgers score another nine runs, Bills may not even have to no-hit the Padres for 6 2/3 innings. Let's find out if the bats are back.

@karina yes! I had seen them a few times before at festivals and the shows were always awesome, confetti, balloons, people in inflated costumes, but I was always at the back. This time I vowed to get up front and into the mix and I was really glad I did. Wayne Coyne got in his clear inflated ball and rolled into the crowd and right over me!

NicJ said...

siéntate Gonzales!

Dusty Baker said...

You got hamsterball-rolled, FB?

Were you wearing capris? Please tell me you were.

karina said...

@Paul which one would givr you ringworm?

I can't believe no one said Andruw Jones

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Eating/drinking/whining

Is that all that different that what we usually do here?

Fred's Brim said...

Will Jansen be in AAA or the big club to start next season?

Paul said...

@Karina

the used Padilla one.

karina said...

@Fred's Brim !!!!!!!!!!!!!

watching the Flaming Lips is on my bucket list!

Mr. Customer said...

@Karina

Re: Douche Mode

That wound is far too new.

Fred's Brim said...

I did, DB.
And I was wearing some cutoff sweatpants. Capri-length, but not tight. I was feeling a little bloated

Fred's Brim said...

Little River Band's Reminiscing: how many times has that been downloaded since they've been pushing that Other Guys commercial the last 2 weeks?

karina said...

So, LA Dodgers, go and score several runs, because Bills doesn't deserve this.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Yeah, but not over chardonnay and not about the finality of motherhood.

Fred's Brim said...

@karina you gotta go! you will not be disappointed!

Mr. Customer said...

I'll fucking take it. Let's tack on a few more of those in a row.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp, if you do not steal second, I will murder you with my bare hands.

Fred's Brim said...

there we go! nice work, Matty!

now if you get thrown out stealing or doing something Theriotic, I am going to bed

Spank Raving Mad said...

Rally!!!!!!

Don't Kemp this shit,Kemp.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

True. Fewer canapés, as well. Not all that different thematically, however.

Paul said...

If Kemp screws up on the basebath I will poke Billy D's eyes out.

Dusty Baker said...

That dude who collapsed on the field before the game (some Mormon leader) was transported to a nearby hospital where he died.

That's the way I wanna go out - on the field at DS.

Fred's Brim said...

Liver spots, did I?

Mr. Customer said...

Let's have a little MSB magic!

Fred's Brim said...

Casey!

Dusty Baker said...

Jamie Carroll 3-run HR right here!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Here we go BABY!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, you little fucker, get some magic going.

Dusty Baker said...

We don't have any adult supervision tonight...no sign of the Sons.

Fred's Brim said...

No Sons? oh really?
*unzips culottes*

NicJ said...

here comes the DP.

Paul said...

I spell Jamie's name right right here I call it.

Mr. Customer said...

Yip. A.J. Ellis, Dodger Hero?

Dusty Baker said...

I want to bitch about that AB, but the last pitch to Wide Eyes was wicked.

Paul said...

Damn it!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh great, it's the buff catcher with no power.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fucking Torre throwing in the towel with GAARP

Dusty Baker said...

Saxy! FB is playing dress-up again!

Fred's Brim said...

ugh we're gonna need a miracle with this part of the lineup up

Mr. Customer said...

Ouch.

Paul said...

AJ then GA.... On to the 8th!

NicJ said...

called it.

this feels like a shut out.

Spank Raving Mad said...

TOO EASY

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is just unbelievable.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB dress down more like it...

Paul said...

GA didn't get to hit. Brilliant!!

Spank Raving Mad said...

GAME OVER

Fred's Brim said...

George

Dusty Baker said...

Beer status: empty

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Torre's given up.

Paul said...

Ming the magician will make the ball disappear!!!

Mr. Customer said...

If Breezy gets his shit figured out just as we're falling out of contention...

Paul said...

Nice pic of Johnson spitting in the dugout.

NicJ said...

what the hell happened to sherrill?

Fred's Brim said...

why would you have Sherrill pitch against 2 righties and then the lefty?

I think MLASF answered that

NicJ said...

spring training is finally over!!!!

Josh S. said...

We haven't had a walkoff since, what, June 2? Let's do this shit!

Josh S. said...

So what makes the Kemp poster '80s? Is he dressed as Mike Davis or something?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GAARP, Pods, Theriot.

Let's just go to the top of the ninth already.

Fred's Brim said...

godammit I will be so glad when he's off the team

Spank Raving Mad said...

YaY GAARP

Josh S. said...

GAARP>Pods>TOOTBLAN

Murdered Row.

Paul said...

The cool vocals of Bryan Star and his stupid generic vocie and his stupid generic song didn't make me feel
better. I didn't even know who he was till a minute ago.

John Lennon pitches for the nationals?!?

Fred's Brim said...

turdburglars row

Spank Raving Mad said...

YaY IPODS

NicJ said...

i am going to thoroughly enjoy watching the padres bullpen implode this year in the playoffs.

Steve Sax said...

this is not looking good, chaps

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul I think he said Vlad Lenin

Spank Raving Mad said...

He'll be playing mind games with the dodgers tomorrow

Fred's Brim said...

oh shit it's Sax!
*pulls up pants*

Paul said...

I thought the Kemp
poster was him as MJ?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Crap. Way to go Theriot. Now you're getting Ethier out of the ninth.

Dusty Baker said...

Everyone ssssshhhhhh.....Sax just walked downstairs into the basement.

*hides weed*

Fred's Brim said...

of course this means Dre will walk and FJL will fly out, leaving Matty and the bottom of the lineup to win it in the 9th

Dusty Baker said...

I predict E will get a long single to move TheLARiot over to 3B.

Fred's Brim said...

COME ONNNNNNNNNNNNN!

NicJ said...

shut out i say.

Paul said...

Got it covered. I had Weaver hide the stash.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is just going to take the good batters out of the ninth.

Fred's Brim said...

Taco Smell time?

NicJ said...

gee, i really hope heath bell can convert this save.

Mr. Customer said...

Loney can't blow an opportunity 3 times in a row, can he?

Can he?

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Freedom James Aloysius Loney!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Lets go Loney or else

Fred's Brim said...

take at least a pitch
don't ruin this on the first pitch

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

Heath: look, a gordita over there!

Fred's Brim said...

Bell looks like a fat RA Dickey with that beard

Fred's Brim said...

that was a strike

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I FUCKING HATE YOU LONEY

Spank Raving Mad said...

Shit.Fuck.

Fred's Brim said...

soooo
what's everybody else gonna do with the rest of their summer?

Steve Sax said...

Fuck, we needed a hit there FJL

Fred's Brim said...

how many runs will we give up in the 9th to put this game away?

Dusty Baker said...

E on 1st!

NicJ said...

oh god, torre's lost it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ANDRE'S PLAYING FIRST?!?!?!?!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm sure there's some weird double-switch kinda reason that I can't explain.

NicJ said...

i can only imagine what moriyama is tweeting.

Fred's Brim said...

Joe isnt even trying anymore. This is the crap you do in September when you are eliminated with 2 weeks left. Like playing a guy at every position during a game

I really hope he decides not to come back

Mr. Customer said...

Torre's lost his mind.

Paul said...

Dotel Hotel Holiday Inn.

Fred's Brim said...

yeah a its double switch, but really unnecessary

Fred's Brim said...

haha nice, Paul!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Torre's just sticking it to the Dodger brass at this point, continually shoving Sherrill and GAARP out there, and now this. He's just sick of the front office.

Dusty Baker said...

At least Don't Ask wears his uniform the proper way.

Josh S. said...

OK, I unfollowed him, but now I'm morbidly curious what Chad has to say about this move.

Fred's Brim said...

those are mighty nice capris he's wearing!

Paul said...

Dotel's necklace has more sparkle than Neeebs shirts.

Spank Raving Mad said...

A great owner would have none of this.

It'd be come to my office first thing in the morning time.

Dusty Baker said...

Donthrowstrikes seems a more descriptive name.

Josh S. said...

That's your season, folks.

NicJ said...

oh god.

season.

Dusty Baker said...

BAD NEWS BEARS.

I'm out, folks.

Fuck off, Frank McCourt. You ruined our season. And probably the next one, too.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

PERFECT! WHAT A PERFECT WAY TO SUM UP THIS SHIT! HOW FUCKING FITTING! I GIVE! THAT'S IT! THAT'S THE LAST FUCKING STRAW! I'M FUCKING SICK OF THIS SHIT!

Mr. Customer said...

Fork -> Season

NicJ said...

thats a lot of maneuvering by torre for the offense to lay down 123 in the bottom half of the inning.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fucking Lame

Fred's Brim said...

that is the dumbest thing i've ever seen

can we trade Dotel to somebody before Aug 31st? Who else can we get rid of?

Josh S. said...

At least my tickets, parking, and food will be free when I suffer through Sunday's game.

Fred's Brim said...

HR? how the hell? are we in Petco?

NicJ said...

completely wipes out two whole games of good feelings.

SELL SELL SELL

Paul said...

Sad.

Can I to spring training next year or do I still have to boycott the state. Fuck that I boycotting the McCourts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let the fire sale begin! Everything must go! Buy one get one free! Get rid of the 10s for the incoming 11s!

Josh S. said...

Weisman should write another book about this season and call it "100 Distinct Embarrassing Ways for the Dodgers to Lose."

Fred's Brim said...

I really want to listen to Vin, but cant stand watching this team. Can we get Vin to broadcast another team for the next 2 months? Is there an AAU team out there who's looking for the greatest announcer of all time?

Mr. Customer said...

Well, lose by 1, lose by 5, lose by 19, we're just as dead.

Fred's Brim said...

"100 Distinct Embarrassing Ways for the Dodgers to Lose: 2010 Season Recap"

NicJ said...

so it turns out that last nights offensive outburst was less of a primal scream and more of a death rattle.

Paul said...

The owners don't get complete sentences from
me anymore.

This stupid division kept us somewhat in this thing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SO FRANK DO YOU STILL THINK YOU CAN WIN THE WEST WITH AN $80 MILLION PAYROLL NOW? HUH? DO YA? HUH? PUTIN?

NicJ said...

the padres are winning the west with a smaller payroll.

Fred's Brim said...

Bell got those sweatpants at the Compton Swap Meet

Josh S. said...

Here's what I'm worried about:

-Ned sells everybody but Kershaw for prospects.
-New prospect-filled team goes on 40-game winning streak.
-Ned praised as genius.

NicJ said...

maybe we should fill the roster with baseball players rather than potential.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, because cutting the payroll over the last few years has worked out swimmingly.

Fred's Brim said...

you know you are low budget when you put the player's name on the jersey as a whole patch instead of individual letters

Josh S. said...

I am going to eat my weight in that suite on Sunday. Gotta pick Frank's pocket.

Paul said...

Kemp what's he good for? Absolutely nothing.

NicJ said...

i hate nameplates on baseball jersey's

Josh S. said...

Oh fuck you, Taco. You're up by 5. Don't throw a tantrum over a walk.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Quit teasing me, you fuckers.

Paul said...

Come on Seth Rogan throw strikes we can't hit.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck you for not ending this

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WAY TO GO BELLIARD YOU USELESS SACK OF FAT

NicJ said...

Fitting the season ends with GA

Mr. Customer said...

Preparing to resume my "Anybody but the Jints" campaign.

Spank Raving Mad said...

BOOOOOOOOO!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So let it be written, so it shall be done.

Fred's Brim said...

should I get a new hat after this season? Mine is 4-5 years old and filthy but in decent shape otherwise. Would that be bad (worse) luck to give up on it?

Paul said...

That GA is a leader. Fuck get rid of him!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Josh S. said...

We should just keep losing to give the DBacks an ego boost.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That veteran leadership really came in handy tonight, boy howdy.

Orel said...

Is it over yet?

Josh S. said...

Hey. Denorfia didn't touch home.

Mr. Customer said...

Last one to leave, unplug GAs iron lung.

Mr. Customer said...

@Orel

It's been over, but I think that pretty much seals it.

Josh S. said...

Moments like this make the '08 and '09 playoffs even more painful. Now the Dodgers aren't going to sniff the postseason for years.

Fred's Brim said...

gnite everybody
i'm gonna take the next few days off. I hope you all have a good weekend

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

I don't think that is unavoidably so, I just don't have much faith in the front office to make the right moves to avert it.

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C: At least two years. Not this year, and the cupboard is bare for '11.

Josh S. said...

I'm not going to watch today or Saturday. I'll be at the game Sunday.

Pending the results of those games, I think I'll be finding something else to do with my time for the next month and a half.

And it's not a fairewather thing. It's just hard to support an organization that's making so many bad decisions.
