Game 122 Thread: August 19 vs. Rox, 7p

Ted Lilly (3-0, 1.89) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (4-3, 4.99).

COMMENTS: Well look who's back. Can't get enough of my lovin', eh? Even I'm starting to think you might be one sick puppy. But hey, I'm not here to judge. If excruciating humiliation is what floats your boat, I'm here to give you what you want. One agonizing defeat, coming right up. Open wide!

Dusty Baker said...

What's the safe word, again?

NicJ said...

so if kemp goes 0fer tonight with 2 K's i expect some apologies.

Josh S. said...

Per Dylan Hernandez:

"RT @66ersbaseball Manny Ramirez is on the lineup card, leading off in LF tonight!"

WHY STOOPID JEFF CARTER SO STOOPID MAKE LINEUP WITH MANNY LEAD OFF

WAIT IT MINOR LEAGUES SO IT GOOD

Josh S. said...

@NicJ: From Kemp?

NicJ said...

what are you talking about josh? manny is taking away AB's from all of our future HOFers down in high A!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I can see right away that we're going to pick up right where we left off in last night's GT.

NicJ said...

@ josh: kemp and kemp apologists.

Josh S. said...

Hi, I'm Chad, and I'm a Kempapologist.

Dusty Baker said...

I AM REALLY FUCKIN PISSED OFF THAT FUTURE HALL OF FAMER RELIEF PITCHER CLASS OF 2029 IS WARMING UP FOR GREAT LAKES LOONS EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE 4 RUN LEAD!!!!! I'M GOING TO KILLLLLLL!!!!11!!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm a pimpologist.

Dusty Baker said...

Early research indicates that pimpin' ain't easy.

NicJ said...

Chad needs to pay a visit to the Analrapist. Ive heard good things about Tobias Funke.

Josh S. said...

Representing a prostitute is challenging!

Dusty Baker said...

Speaking of research, how's your SoSG research project going, Josh? Any interesting data you have teased out so far?

NicJ said...

isnt it funny how the dodgers crappy season has turned the blogs into gang-like divisions.

Its like a internet baseball commentary version of The Warriors.

Josh S. said...

I'm fairly certain this season has made us all lose our damn minds.

In a good way.

Dusty Baker said...

It's like the Mad Max-ization of Dodger blogs.

Next season: Beyond Thunderdome. Fred's Brim will play the Tina Turner part.

Josh S. said...

@Dusty (4:13)

See here.

NicJ said...

cole hamels sucking it up at the moment. Giants have 3 runs in the first.

NicJ said...

over the years the SOSG posts have gone from advanced statistics to Ike Davis.

Dusty Baker said...

I love stuff like this:

"Wouldn't you expect to see Elbert before Kershaw?

1/20/2007 4:09 PM"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RT @dylanohernandez: #Dodgers: Vicente Padilla to the DL. Bulging disk in neck.

NicJ said...

Padilla to DL, whatever.

Josh S. said...

And there it is, folks.

We are running out of forks to stick in this one, folks.

Josh S. said...

Fuck, I double-folked.

Josh S. said...

I thought something might be up in his last couple of starts, but I chalked it up to having off nights.

Dusty Baker said...

We could stick a fork in his bulging disk and try to dislodge it. #DustysHealthCareReformPlan

QuadSevens said...

"Double-folked" sounds like some kind of bedroom maneuver.

Josh S. said...

Carroll and Lilly are after Johnson.

I think I ordered that on PPV once.

Dusty Baker said...

You can't say shit that funny while I'm still at work, Josh.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FOOTBALL!!! FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL!!! FOOOOOOOOOOTBAAAAAAAAAAAAL!!!!!!

It's more interesting than Padilla's bulging disk.

Neeebs said...

Don't worry. Everythings going to be OK. We just need to fill a hole in LF, 3B, 2B, and Catcher.

Calling Ned Coletti. Ned Coletti. Is this thing on? *tap,tap*

Mr. Customer said...

@mlasf

Futbol, you say?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Except the two teams will likely combine for more points than goals scored during the entire World Cup.

NicJ said...

football does not exist in los angeles.

Green Lantern JBJ of Sector 1138 said...

nice icon MR LA

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

3 points? That's more in the first five minutes than I saw in 94 minutes of US-Algeria.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DC nerds unite!

Dusty Baker said...

I see all good reason for Kemp to be there in the three hole.

Eric said...

Hmm, I wouldn't mind some manhandling by that bondage babe, but I'd probably end up getting mental cruelty like watching an endless loop of blown Dodgers saves, TOOTBLAN and outfield esKEMPades.

Eric said...

Wow- two superheroes! Gleen Lanter and Dead (Dodger Season) Man...

MR. F said...

TOOTBLAN sounds so wrong.

Eric said...

That Reed Johnson TOOTBLAN last night was even more wrong. T_T

Angry Eric said...

WTH? Battletoad down?!?

http://www.sportsfanlive.com/web/article?action=viewArticle&articleId=9032812

It's beginning to look like that last minute push by the Dodgers isn't happening...:(

Manny Ramirez
Rafael Furcal
J. Martin
Vincente Padilla

MR. F said...

Wow there's an Eric and an Angry Eric here? And they both don't have avatars? What are the odds!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty angry, too.

Angry Eric said...

Hmmm, weird- Angry Eric should have a Hulk avatar! RARRR! More Anger!

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Angry Eric said...

Dusty's avatar looks like a sinister clown that stole off with Strawberry Shortcake's hat

karen said...

Epale Ladies and Gentlemen

BattleToad on the DL...Where will it end?

MR. F said...

Apparently it was announced in the press box that Padilla to the DL isn't happening today... whatever that entails

Dusty Baker said...

My avatar looks the evil spawn of The Joker and Strawberry Shortcake.

MR. F said...

What is ICP?

MR. F said...

Acronym finder tells me that it's most likely "Insane Clown Posse."

Dusty Baker said...

I'm brimming with confidence:

Carlos Monasterios will start for #Dodgers on Friday, Padilla placed on the DL and Schlichting recalled

Dusty Baker said...

Yes, Insane Clown Posse.

Goes back to last night's GT.

Spank Raving Mad said...

BOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

YAAAAAH!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Per MLB official Twitter feed:

"No. 1/8 Eddie Gaedel walked on 4 pitches OTD in 1951."

I love that bit. The midget Gaedel!

Angry Eric said...

Kemp needs to channel the Ghost of Gaedel, maybe he could get on-base and torture us on the basepaths. =D

Mr. Customer said...

So it begins...

Spank Raving Mad said...

Chente is pulling a Manny

Spank Raving Mad said...

GAARP would have made that catch

Dusty Baker said...

Is there a Sabremetric for guys who make great catches despite the fact that most Dodger bloggers predicted the contrary to happen?

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker: pride of his sofa.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

"Is there a sabermetric..."

Erstad Grit Coefficient

Spank Raving Mad said...

Came home ,Knocked out on the couch,now I feel all unnecessary

Spank Raving Mad said...

Nice swing Podsy

Dusty Baker said...

Ahhh, that's right. Ersty's Law.

MR. F said...

The extra BP hasn't paid off yet...

NicJ said...

Mora will be in a TLC documentary series featuring his family called "Five Mora Us"

NicJ said...

lilly getting all types O' nasty.

NicJ said...

big lame james.

Josh S. said...

Is there a way for the starting pitchers to make the postseason, at least? They're at least trying to get there.

Josh S. said...

The Mora, The Merrya!

NicJ said...

Melvin and the Quints? no thats the name of the family band.

Dusty Baker said...

No Mora them puns!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I gotta have mora cowbell!

Dusty Baker said...

Johnson comes up big!

NicJ said...

johnson comes up big!

karen said...

Thata boy Reed!

Dusty Baker said...

This is a rich vein for ih8colletti.

Spank Raving Mad said...

YaY?

MR. F said...

Wait what just happened?

Josh S. said...

REED JOHNSON HITS A HOME RUN IN THE MIDDLE OF ME TYPING ABOUT HIM BEING A LIGHT-HITTING WHITE GUY

NicJ said...

why was everyone saying "that was sick" in the dugout? some inside joke im guessing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Johnson climaxes.





What?

Mr. Customer said...

You guys have been saving that all year, haven't you?

Spank Raving Mad said...

BOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Dusty Baker said...

The lowest amount of HRs that Johnson has hit is four (last year). This was his first HR this year in game number 122. I think your LHWG assessment is still accurate, Josh.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr. C

Yes. Yes we have.

NicJ said...

I had somewhat high hopes after Johnson hit one out in a preseason game. Im such a sucker.

MR. F said...

@NicJ,
You are a sucker... for Johnson?

Dusty Baker said...

And there it is, per Mr F.

NicJ said...

Oh, i see what you did there.

NicJ said...

Laz Diaz gets his karma plunk for miscalling that check swing that eventually led to the rox winning run.

Mr. Customer said...

I am both ashamed and impressed.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr. C

But certainly not surprised, I'm sure.

Dusty Baker said...

Per Jimmy Bramlett:

"Johnson has homered off of Sabathia, Garza, Johan Santana, Halladay, Josh Johnson, Pedro Martinez (2004), Kerry Wood (2003)."

NicJ said...

de le rosa has almost thrown the ball away twice on the pick off throw.

MR. F said...

From Eric Stephen at TBLA: the reason for the mullet: charity (yes, two colons).

https://secure.mlb.com/col/community/winsforkids.jsp

Mr. Customer said...

Apodaca.

NicJ said...

the double colon charity is always ignored.


THERE ARE DOZENS OF US!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That puts a new spin on "hair care."

Dusty Baker said...

No problem on the double colon from me. All clear.

NicJ said...

kemp finding new ways to hit into DP's

Spank Raving Mad said...

Ain't that a bitch

Dusty Baker said...

Did I detect a smattering of boos on that play (presumably for Kemp, if my ears were correct)?

NicJ said...

they were booing torre for not putting kemp in the lineup yesterday.

Josh S. said...

Kemp just did that to remind everyone that Pods sucks. He wouldn't have gotten doubled up if he were any good.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp teaching a lesson on getting doubled up. Uh-huh.

MR. F said...

...I was saying Boo-ison.

Angry Eric said...

...especially after that awkward Loney walkoff...

MR. F said...

Did everybody simultaneously go to the bathroom or something?

Dusty Baker said...

No, I needed a beer. I'm back.

Dusty Baker said...

I might need another beer by the time someone else comments!

Angry Eric said...

I need a beer after that DP...

MR. F said...

Lilly has been most excellent.

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny laughing at the midget Gaedel.

Neeebs said...

Has Hockey season started yet? I'm bored with this nonsense.

Dusty Baker said...

Are you not entertained, Neeebs?

karina said...

Epale everyone! sorry for the tardiness!

I was at,hmmm,socializing with colleagues.I had THREE beers and some Burger King fries.I'm a party animal!

I also couldn't sleep last night,fell asleep at 7 am,woke up at 9:30 am, so I'm not sure I can't stay up long.

p.s headache building on

Dusty Baker said...

What kind of beer did you have, K?

MR. F said...

Epale karina! Are you an insomniac?

Neeebs said...

I'm contemplated Guitar Hero. N'uff said?

Mr. Customer said...

Insomniac Dodger fans unite!

rbnlaw said...

What up peeps?

Dusty Baker said...

Dyslexic Dodger fans untie!

MR. F said...

Oy.

Dusty Baker said...

Is it really last call from you at the AC tavern, RBN?

rbnlaw said...

STOOPID REED JOHN'S SON. HE NO HIT.
IF THEY LOSE, ALL HIS FAULT.

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Hell, I felt so good after winning, I left the tab open.

No beer served after the 7th, so get ye to the bar.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ted Lilly is fifth in the NL in WHIP. I imagine this game will help him in that category.

Dusty Baker said...

Carlos Santana could never have made that catch that Casey just made.

Dusty Baker said...

Cause Santana's leg is all jacked up, and cause he is a catcher.

karina said...

@Dusty Regional Draft, some say that's drinking water but I don't know much about beer.

@Mr F sort of, it comes and goes, however, I had work done last night.

@Mr C exactly

Dusty Baker said...

WHIP it good!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

NO DUSTY YOU STOOPID TRADE FOR BLAKE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH SIGNING HIM LONGTERM YOU IGNORANT FUCKTARD JUST END YOURSELF HAR HAR HAR XFIP

karina said...

I think we could safely call the Dodgers "Becerros"

Dusty Baker said...

Does that mean calf?

Dusty Baker said...

ih8colletti brilliance:

"LOVE YOU SANTANA <3"

Paul said...

Epale blue brothas and sistas!

Are we still in a blog war? I have my Billy Ashley signed Bat. It needs to be used for something.

@Karina
three beers and burge king fries! Mmmmm breakfast.

Josh S. said...

Anyone else catch that quick shot of Russell during GBA? He looked like a wax figure of himself.

It wasn't though, because a wax figure would have a higher OBP.

(HAR HAR HAR XFIP)

Paul said...

Ted is the man.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

A CATCHER DOES NOT PRODUCE AN OUT HALLELUJAH

Paul said...

Ryan Ryan Ryan.

Well your facial hair looks cool.

Paul said...

That was the best swing ever Ted! You looked very special.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. C has a cricket bat at the ready.

Dusty Baker said...

Johnson is done for the night.

Dusty Baker said...

Sit the fuck down!

NicJ said...

whats that fool arguing about, it was a total strike.

Paul said...

Where is everyone? This stuff is um
mmm great tv.

Kemp looks like the crappy kid who played the outfield and was distracted by anything.

NicJ said...

did he not get thrown out?

MR. F said...

Around. Busy though....

karina said...

Yes,Dusty.

Hello son! mama is missing you!

@Paul hahahaha

Dusty Baker said...

If Manny throws a bat like that he's instantly thrown out.

Josh S. said...

SHUT IT, KAREN OLIVO!

NicJ said...

manny flips an elbow pad and gets thrown out.

Paul said...

He was tossed right?

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

"the crappy kid who played the outfield and was distracted by anything."

e.g., me.

NicJ said...

theriot pulls a dewitt.

NicJ said...

giambis old man muscle arms freak me out.

Josh S. said...

Casey Blake's grin is worth 100 one-legged Carlos Santanas.

Dusty Baker said...

Hard to blame Theriot too much. Ball was hit fairly sharply, he kept ball in front of him, and got the lead runner. I'll take it.

NicJ said...

i dont get why dylan hernandez makes such a big deal about DS announcing paid attendance rather than gate attendance.

Every team does this.

Josh S. said...

Dylan picks some weird battles.

NicJ said...

yeah i wasnt blaming him. I didnt like the trade originally when it went down but i must admit that it is nice to have a second basemen that isnt actually a third basemen.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm just glad his kicking the Shpunt and Neal ElAttrache habits.

NicJ said...

Oh god, he still goes back to the VEnergy thing every once and a while.

Josh S. said...

That doesn't count, Matt.

NicJ said...

is the the first infield single of the year by kemp?

Paul said...

Kemp looked like he was running!

Paul said...

Well the last few steps at least.

Dusty Baker said...

That was a fielder's choice. The fielder chose to screw up the throw and allow Kemp to successfully reach.

karina said...

@Josh why doesn't it count? i'll take it!

Go Becerro!

NicJ said...

NVM, ruled an error.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, I like D. Hernandez, but good lord can he beat a dead horse.

We would never do that.

Paul said...

Where are all the Jim Tracy lovers?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

http://bit.ly/di3KBW

Mr. Customer said...

You never know when you might need a cricket bat.

NicJ said...

Well SOSG has been known to belt a Barbaro or two.

Dusty Baker said...

I totally pulled a Steiner on that one. I thought Loney's fly was going to be long enough. It's been a long day.

Dusty Baker said...

Lilly coming back in.

Will Stat-lickers love or hate? Sometimes I can't predict them.

karina said...

My eyes are closing but I can't fall asleep if the Dodgers are winning by two.

I have a sad life.

Paul said...

Ted. We are not worthy!

Josh S. said...

Stat-lickers are high on Lilly, but feel his solid performances don't matter at this point.

Dusty Baker said...

hang with us, karina! 3 more outs.

Dusty Baker said...

I think I got high on lilly a few times in college.

Paul said...

@Karina

No life is sad if you are healthy and enjoying it.

Josh S. said...

Oh, hey, did I mention that I checked earlier today and, as of this morning, Juan Pierre is outslugging Matt Kemp (by a few points) since the All-Star break?

NicJ said...

lead off walk.

Dusty Baker said...

PLEASE NOT BELLISARIO

Dusty Baker said...

DP!

Josh S. said...

That was rad.

Paul said...

Fuckin A.

High on Lilly!

Dusty Baker said...

Ready for 200, MLASF?

Mr. Customer said...

@paul

Deep, brother.

NicJ said...

two strike clap!

Josh S. said...

I LOVE YOU LILLYPAD.
