Game 113 Thread: August 10 @ Phillies, 4p

Vicente Padilla (5-3, 3.09) vs. Kyle Kendrick (7-4, 4.37).

COMMENTS: The Dodgers take their 10-13 record against the NL East to Philadelphia, where Padilla pays a visit to his old team. The Dodgers are "hot," riding a "two-game win streak" and having "handily" won four of their last six. A win today would give them the "momentum" to "make a run" at a playoff spot. And you can quote me on that.

Blake Gibbons (born June 21, 1961; California) is an American actor with a recurring role as Coleman on the long running Daytime television serial General Hospital.

He also played "The Dude" (Lyle) in The Summer of George episode of Seinfeld.

I'm worried about the soap bubble in a band box.

Steve Sax said...

But this bubble has no trouble being in a box!

Josh S. said...

But, I thought they weren't bubbles 'til they get out of the box!

Dusto_Magnifico said...

I'm hoping for another stellar performance from Padzilla, since I just picked him up on my fantasy team.

Paul said...

Holy shit Jay is hitting sixth!

That is it I am leaving work early.


I forgot how much I hate the Phillies until I saw their lineup. I feel bitch slapped all over again.

Headless Horseman said...

Where the fuck is Kemp? Clearly Torre has a headless bias.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp lost his best friend on Sunday. GIVE HIM TIME TO GRIEVE!!!!

Steve Sax said...

@MR LA SF: something happened to Rihanna?

Josh S. said...

Ladies and gentlemen, as we embark on this critical three-game series, I would like to take a moment to express what I'm sure we're all feeling at this moment...




Phuck the Phillies.




Thank you. Now let's play ball.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's too damn bad that Victorino's not playing today. Who's head will we throw at now?

Josh S. said...

Good start, Podsy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Podsednik says "Fuck Weisman."

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Even Lyons thinks Theriot sucks.

Josh S. said...

Steiner already failing to properly describe the action. "Great play" doesn't cut it.

Josh S. said...

Dre!

1-0 us!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nice piece of hitting from Andre, and some smart running from Pods.

Josh S. said...

I'll take it...for now.

Paul said...

Up 1-0. Call the game!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't think DeWitt could have done that.

Josh S. said...

"Banana boat curve" dosen't make any sense, Charley.

Josh S. said...

Gibbons batting 1.000!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Gibbons has a nice swing.

Paul said...

Jay Fuckin Gibbons.

Spank Raving Mad said...

It's on

Josh S. said...

I haven't used the At Bat desktop version in a while. Wow are those graphics fugly!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fucking Ausmoss

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was the second-worst outcome possible.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least that clears the pitchers' spot for the third.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Got all excited and stuff then nothing

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking Werth.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a beauty of a DP.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

CARLOS RUIZ GOT OUT!!!

Josh S. said...

Bunting with nobody on drives me nuts. Glad it worked.

Josh S. said...

The Andre Ethier Show, everybody!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ANDRE!!!

Spank Raving Mad said...

YaY Dre !

Josh S. said...

Damn.

Gotta drive home now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JAY GIBBONS KICKS ASS!!!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Fuck yeah! The new guy

Paul said...

Nice Jay!!

Steve Sax said...

3-0 Dodgers, mid-3

This lead won't hold up, so I'm glad we're scoring runs

Jay Gibbons is 3-for-3 as a Dodger. Chimps alive!

Steve Sax said...

Gibbons' batting average of 1.000 is about 818 points ahead of GAARP.

Spank Raving Mad said...

AusMoss on base

Paul said...

Jay now only needs 25 more hits to match GA's total.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

HAHA STUPID ROLLINS!

Paul said...

Down goes Rollins!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only Steve Lyons would be pissed by Rollins getting an error on that play.

Paul said...

You can't stop our muderers row!!

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

this is the most productive Dodgers' line up I can remember in months. WooHoo Gobbons and Theriot!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Theriot hits a granny I will not mock him for the rest of the season.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Rancho just get a damn hit...iendo

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'll give Theriot a pass for that one. No more mocking for the rest of the day.

Steve Sax said...

theriot with the sac fly gives us run #4!

Kendrick is chased! 4-0 Dodgers

Steve Sax said...

I didn't watch the play; was anyone surprised that Ausmus was held at third on sPod's single?

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

Oh Philly, I don't just hate your baseball team and wish that very bad things happen to it and its fans, I generally dislike and wish ill will upon your entire community.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Boy, Andre's almost as hot as Gibbons.

Spank Raving Mad said...

It's a Dre Day

Josh S. said...

KILL THEM WITH SINGLES!

Paul said...

@Sax

No it was hit pretty hard.


How are we doing this without GA's leadership?!?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SAFE!!!

Josh S. said...

We've been saving ourselves for Philly.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MORE RUNS!!! SUCK IT, PHIWWY!!!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Did not realize how quick iPod was till now

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

SUCK ON IT PHILLY!!!

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

Come on Gibby!!!

Spank Raving Mad said...

That is what happens when you put in a bastard to pitch for you,Philly

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And just like that, GibbonsMania is over.

Paul said...

Damn it he was pressing a bit. Gotta lay off the slider away.

Steve Sax said...

Jay Gibbons strikes out during our rally.

Cut him! He's worthless!

Spank Raving Mad said...

Gibbons strike out was GAARPesque

Steve Sax said...

7-0 Dodgers, mid 4

Steve Sax said...

All nine starters have a run or a RBI except for Ackbar. It's a trap!

Paul said...

Don't worry the Admiral is directing the attack. He has his eyes out for the enemy.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Now it's a freakin' trap. Come on Chente

Paul said...

Fuck good AB by Werth. Padilla laboring a bit.

Steve Sax said...

keep it together, vPad

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Steve Lyons is really passive aggressive towards Dominic Brown.

Steve Sax said...

six straight balls for vPad

Steve Sax said...

that philly crowd is getting back into this...come on vicente

Steve Sax said...

there's a strike... 3-1 count

Steve Sax said...

3-2 count

Steve Sax said...

ah, shit.

in play, run(s)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Meh. I'll take it.

Paul said...

That was smoked. I'll take it.

Steve Sax said...

only a sac fly, though...that's pretty reasonable considering.

7-1

Paul said...

Pssssh Ruiz. What damage can he do.....

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This really is the Dodgers exercising all of their frustrations towards the Phillies.

Steve Sax said...

called strike 3, padilla's out of the jam!

7-1 LA through 4

Spank Raving Mad said...

Minimal Damage

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

god damn i want a western bacon cheeseburger now

MR. F said...

I didn't realize it was possible to score this many runs in a baseball game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

VPad's starting to fall apart.

Josh S. said...

Hmm...he's pitching more like Zsa Zsa Padilla now.

Anyone? No?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAMMIT

Spank Raving Mad said...

shit

Josh S. said...

Shiiiiiit.

Steve Sax said...

ah, it might be time to pull the vPad. Gload HR makes it 7-4 LA.

Steve Sax said...

100

MR. F said...

Oh no.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WE NEED MORE POWER

Josh S. said...

That blast came from the Death Star!

MR. F said...

That thing's operational!

Josh S. said...

Where the hell is Dusty?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MOAR RUNZ

Steve Sax said...

FJL 2B!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GIBBONSMANIA IS ALIVE

MR. F said...

JAY GIBBONS IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION

MR. F said...

So we scored over 10 runs. Does that mean our score resets to 1 again?

Josh S. said...

I'M GIBBON HER ALL SHE'S GOT!!!

karen said...

I love it when the other team makes errors

Steve Sax said...

Gibbons rocks!

11-4 LA

Josh S. said...

Gay for Jay.

Paul said...

The Gibbons family is going to have to get a restraining order because my family has been texting
so much!

I almost fell off the tredmill.

Jay Fuckin Gibbons!!

karina said...

what? I miss most of the game because of salsa dancing class and the Dodgers are on an offense outburst?

do I ahve to look for another place to dance salsa tomorrow?

karina said...

welcome back Belisario!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Go back to rehab, Belly.

Neeebs said...

Belated, but...

MONKEY TIME

MR. F said...

Heh...

Paul said...

Andre in a zone again.

Josh S. said...

Gibbons looks like a funhouse mirror version of DeWitt.

Josh S. said...

Those hot dogs behind home plate look really unappetizing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Prepare for massive Kempage.

Paul said...

What the fuck!?!?!!!

I am going to throw something.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KEMPAGE!

Josh S. said...

Yay for no pressure!

Paul said...

Okay maybe I won't throw something but I still wanted Jay up.

Neeebs said...

That'll get him back on track.

Steve Sax said...

13-5!!!!!!

karina said...

Monasterios time!I can't believe this score

Josh S. said...

21 runs scored since GA released. Just sayin'.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Skeed?

Mr. Customer said...

Holy hell, ladies and gentlemen! There is a distinct possibility that I may be Schleprock to this Dodger team. They seem to suck a lot less when I'm not watching.

Josh S. said...

I've had an assgload of that guy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least the pitching is flailing when the offense scores 13 runs.

karina said...

Coming up: Rodriguez facing Gonzalez, Gonzalez owns K-Rod.

In winter baseball, those are great news.Not on the MLB.

karina said...

@Josh so,you're saying GAAARP was THE problem in the ofeense.Now I know what Torre meant with intangibles.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, El Tito de Bronze!

Spank Raving Mad said...

We've doubled our run count since I split. But instead of being happy I am going to pull a MOKM and be mad at our runs allowed.

karina said...

@Spank pitching have been performing beyond expextactions,let's say this is a night off.

Neeebs said...

This is the night that you want to have mediocre pitching.

Paul said...

5 more outs. Where do I get my tickers for Gibbonswood?complete with a red wig.

Paul said...

Wait Bastardo is pitching for the Topes?

Spank Raving Mad said...

I was just playin' . I love when the floodgates retract.

Spank Raving Mad said...

OH NO!! FLAT BREEZY

Paul said...

I have lost track of this bullpen. Where is Biemel?

rbnlaw said...

I'd really like to see one more out in this inning.

Paul said...

Breezy back where his suckyness started.

rbnlaw said...

Breezy didn't completely suck.

He's on a roll.

Steve Sax said...

Why Sherrill? Whyyyyyyyyyy

rbnlaw said...

Man, I need food.

Possibly beer as well.

Paul said...

You can't stop Breezy you can only hope to designate him for assignment.

Josh S. said...

Boooooooo!

rbnlaw said...

RT @chadmoriyama: Looks like Belisario is gonna be hitting the bottle again real soon.

Brutal.

Is Dre ready to carry this team to the playoffs?

karina said...

@Rbnlaw barley is a cereal after all

rbnlaw said...

@Paul: if Manny gets reactivated (which I doubt will happen), Breezy might just go DFA.

rbnlaw said...

karina, your optimism and positive outlook on beer is admirable.

Paul said...

I barley noticed I haven't had a beer yet.

rbnlaw said...

Breezy on deck? You're shitting me.

rbnlaw said...

2 RUN DING-DONG FOR LA BARBA!!!

rbnlaw said...

15 runs means we'll be shut out by Oswalt tomorrow.

/pessimism

karina said...

Hail Barba power!

karina said...

Hail Barba power!

Mr. Customer said...

The Beard adds insult to injury.

Paul said...

Away from
my tv. I had to listen to Chuck mess up that homerun call.

rbnlaw said...

Way to work the count, Breezy.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw Oswalt has lost before and can lose again.

rbnlaw said...

Going to dinner. Beer included.

rb out.

Mr. Customer said...

Phiwwy's 'pen makes ours look spectacular.

rbnlaw said...

@karina:

You are correct, miss.

Paul said...

So what was more unlikely:

a) Gibbons 3 for 4

b) Dodgers score in the 15.

c) Breezy gets a walk

d) Breezy pitches two solid innings.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw one block away from one of the colleges attended, there is a place that sells beer (without the permit). They open from 9 am to 8 pm.

The excuse was getting barley as cereal for breakfast.

Place is called "La Embajada" so people say, depending on their intentions, they'll ask for tourist visa, resident visa or become a political refugee.

Paul said...

Oops Dodgers score 15.

Mr. Customer said...

Wait, someone walked a relief pitcher? That's atrocious.

karina said...

Mr C are you showing pity for the Phillies?why?

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

No mercy, just in awe of the incompetence.

NicJ said...

let the 8 run rally begin.

Paul said...

One more out and we make party!!!!

karina said...

@Nic J are you shocked for thr 15 runs?

@Mr C thanks, if you feel some mercy for the Phillies, our friendship is endangered

Spank Raving Mad said...

We Got This

Josh S. said...

Dotel will face Edge.

Paul said...

Fuckin breezy.

NicJ said...

Joe makes a boo boo.

Josh S. said...

Ya know...if confidence is the issue, this won't help.

NicJ said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Octavio in now for Costanza.

Josh S. said...

JOE USE BULLPEN TOO MUCH HE DUMB HAR HAR HAR XFIP!

NicJ said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Josh - I'm going to use that when one of the statheads gets too chippy on twitter.

Paul said...

Up by 8 and they still freakin scare me like a little girl.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Quit fucking around Octavio

Paul said...

One more Dotelly.

NicJ said...

Come on Oct!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCKING OCTAVIO YOU FUCKER

NicJ said...

Spank Raving Mad said...

Don't even mess with me fuckers and end this shit now

Josh S. said...

Not to be a stat nerd, but our run differential is still going to suck balls after this.

Paul said...

Fuckin throw strikes!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

I'd like to buy an out, please.
