Game 126 Thread: August 24 @ Brewers, 5p

Ted Lilly (7-8, 3.23) vs. Dave Bush (6-10, 4.63).

COMMENTS: Losing two of three to the Reds made me a little salty, so forgive my bad mood whine again. It's just that, particularly since the All-Star Break, we've been swallowed up by the little things, while we've waited for some of the people that we love to come back from the DL. At least we're starting Ted Lilly, 4-0 with a 1.29 ERA since joining the Dodgers, who has been everything zen--and more. Now if we could only talk to Manny about those chemicals. (Between us.)

36 games left in the season? Don't let the, days go by.

I'm worried that Manny, Lilly, Kuroda, etc will never get placed on waivers. We basically have to win 30 more games to have a shot at the playoffs.

Dusty Baker said...

We have bush!

Cc: Booger

Josh S. said...

It's an Abes vs. Babes matchup!

(Yes, I'm still reading old SoSG. I'm up to June 2007.)

Spanky said...

Aw Yes! Bush.The poor man's Nirvana

GLYCERINE GLYCERINE

Forgot how much I never liked them

Dusty Baker said...

RT @DodgertownUSA: #Dodgers lineup: Theriot 4 Ethier 9 Ramirez 7 Loney 3 Kemp 8 Belliard 5 Carroll 6 Barajas 2 Lilly 1

Loney Fan said...

@Josh S. - pretty soon you'll be coming up on the original off-day puzzles. Bonus!

Dusty Baker said...

^ Sorry for lineup formatting but I'm in a pub.

Small Sample Size said...

@ Dusty

Which pub are you at?

Josh S. said...

It would be noteworthy if you WEREN'T in a pub, DB.

Greg Zakwin said...

Did you all hear that two guys ripped of the LFP's Win For Vin shirt and are threatening to sue him?

MR. F said...

Nice use of the term salty there.

Jason said...

Unrelated to the game tonight, but I thought Sons might be interested (and I imagine Dusty would be very interested): Redhook brewery is holding a Sausage-fest (not to be confused with a SoSG Fest of course).

It's a dead heat on who has the better logo.

Josh S. said...

Today's retro SoSG gem:

"Orel said...

I think we have to accept Kuo is not a very good pitcher.

6/29/2007 9:03 PM"

(To be fair, at the time, he wasn't.)

Steve Sax said...

I've been up to the Red Hook Brewery. But after inbev bought them, I've been less psyched about them.

Better logo, though.

Steve Sax said...

@LoneyFan 3:04p: are you saying our puzzles aren't original anymore? Man, that hurts.

Orel said...

You're reading the comments too, Josh???

Josh S. said...

@Orel: Yup. In 2007, though, that's pretty easy to do.

rbnlaw said...

Bye bye, Hiroki. He'll be claimed off waivers in 3,2,1. .

Josh S. said...

The Bud Selig statue is not shrugging, but it is jangling keys/asking for a handout/performing a testicular exam.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

karen said...

Epale everyone

Epale Karina

Here we go again.....

karina said...

I'm annoyed for the fact Bud Selig has a statue.

MR. F said...

TOOTBLAN?

karina said...

Road King James!

Josh S. said...

LOL Steiner on Kemp:

"The slider away has been his Krypton this season."

Josh S. said...

BISONIC BOOM!!!

karen said...

WooHoo Matty!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

CRUSHED

Spanky said...

No Fucking Way?!

Steve Sax said...

Boom Kemp!!!

karina said...

Who's your bison? :)

(disclaimer: I can retire that moniker anytime)

MR. F said...

Kemp!

MR. F said...

Explanation: Matt Kemp is from the planet Slider.

karina said...

Good barajas!

(barajas=playing cards)

Spanky said...

Ladies and Gentlemen: That concludes our offensive output for today. Thanks for watching.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KEMP'D

Paul said...

98 degrees in San Fran is not right. The people's collective hair is out of sorts and they don't know what to do with their scarfs.

Spanky said...

Stupid gameday. What did Kemp do drop the ball or something

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The ball bounced off the wall, away from Kemp. He left no room for error, and the ball ended up rolling about 20 yards before Kemp could pick it up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Woops. I criticized Kemp. I better go kill myself now.

Spanky said...

Classic Kemp, Reads like he couldn't decide to go for the catch or play off the bounce.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

He knew he couldn't catch it, but he left around 8 feet between himself and the wall and he left no room for an awkward bounce.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOO!

MR. F said...

I'm sure there's a happy medium between saying Kemp isn't trying hard enough and Kemp has had some bad luck at the plate (ie, both are probably true). In this case it's Kemp's fault, but I'm pretty tired of all the Kemp polarization.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least run, Kemp. Jeez.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID UMP

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Okay, that's a pretty damn funny commercial.

Spanky said...

Gotta Love Dem Bums

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ROD BARAJAS IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION

MR. F said...

Nice Olney.

MR. F said...

Oh wait. I meant to type TOOTBLAN.

Mr. Customer said...

D'oh, stupid central time. I thought that was a lot of comments for pre-game.

karina said...

If there's something I hate, it's when baseball players don't run to first.

delayed comment, I know

MR. F said...

Now would be a nice time for Manny to do something.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fuck.

Dusty Baker said...

@ SSS

Creegen's or something like that.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fuck fuck.

MR. F said...

Gods damnit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fuck fuck fuck.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !

Mr. Customer said...

I see I'm in full-fledged schleprock effect tonight. At this point I don't think I care enough about the record to leave.

karina said...

@Mr C it's not you,obviously

karina said...

So, we all agree it's a close and winnable game, right?

Spanky said...

@ Karina

no

karina said...

@Spanky I just wanted to lift the spirits.

So, we all agree I'm delusional because I can't/won't quit before math tells me so?

:(

MR. F said...

Don't worry, it's not wrong to be delusional.

karina said...

Back to back singles and Barajas has a good hand tonight.

Mr. Customer said...

If nothing else, it's nice to see that The Admiral still cares.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ROD BARAJAS KICKS ASS, TAKES NAMES

Neeebs said...

Catcher spot...Check

Mr. Customer said...

Holy balls!

karina said...

Barajas dealing, ladies and gents!

MR. F said...

Woo!

Spanky said...

Our catcher hit a homer? Unfuckingbelievabe!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Barajas is doing more tonight that Ellis and Ausmus have all season long.

Mr. Customer said...

Nicely played, Karina!

karina said...

@Mr C I'm glad someone caught up with my puns!

p.s I finally made a pun :)

MR. F said...

OHH I just got that!

Paul said...

Casey Fresno State boy but man stop it already!!

karina said...

Mr Twitterati "consiguete una novia" is putting his touch of gloom.If they lose this game,I'll blame him.

how negative can a person be?

Steve Sax said...

Holy cow we are in the lead!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Theriot is certainly better than DeWitt in terms of defense.

Wait, I forgot DeWitt is an elite 3B. Better go kill myself now.

MR. F said...

Yay he got out of it.

karina said...

@Mr LASF don't, who's gonna delight us with @ih8colletti

;)

MR. F said...

MRLASF, you should get help. It seems you've been really suicidal lately.

karina said...

@Mr F you were sad a few days ago, are you better?:)

MR. F said...

Slightly. I am managing, but thanks for asking.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We need to ship Manny off ASAP.

Mr. Customer said...

@Karina

You're flush with card puns today.

Josh S. said...

WHY STOOPID JOE PULL TEDDY

karina said...

Is Torre removing Lilly?

MR. F said...

Craig Counsell is still alive?

Josh S. said...

I'm pissed that our cable box reset, making me miss the BaraHOSS homer.

Spanky said...

Thanks Manny for '08, but don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I bet El Viejito Torre bats Barajas clean up tomorrow.

Josh S. said...

This really makes NO sense.

karina said...

It only makes sense if Lilly was hurting in the dugout.

I hope he is not and it is just a "controversial" decision

karina said...

@Mr C were they annoying?

@Mr F I really wish you are fine ASAP

karina said...

Speaking of people I'm rooting for...

Josh S. said...

Yay Pumpkinhead!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

2U. Don't see that everyday.

NicJ said...

Loney is the slowest man on earth.

Spanky said...

Maybe we should rest Loney for a week

MR. F said...

Thanks karina. I hope so, too.

NicJ said...

I can distinctly hear a brewers fan taunting Beli2 about being fat.

Would be funnier if Beli wasn't one of the skinnier guys in the building.

#FATCITY

NicJ said...

charge the mound bison!!!!!


well, maybe wait till Hoffman gets on the mound.

NicJ said...

now we have some short jokes for carroll.

yeah, because most middle infielders are 6 foot 6

Mr. Customer said...

@Karina

They suIt me fine. Puns are supposedly the lowest form of humor, and thus they entertain me endlessly.

MR. F said...

NicJ,
Are you listening to the Brewers commentators?

MR. F said...

Hey, there was a successful Matt Kemp stolen base.

Spanky said...

Please bring in Flat Breezy

Spanky said...

YaY! Pumpkinhead haha

MR. F said...

Nice.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kameron Loe! Local kid!

karina said...

@Mr C they might be the lowest form of humor,but I'm not witty to make the good ones you make.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's kuose this one out.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

COLLINS YOU STOOPID JINX

Mr. Customer said...

@Karina

Practice makes perfect. They say it's all in the whist.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kase Kuosed.

MR. F said...

Yay!

karina said...

We make party!

Abarajame-Illya Kuriaky and the Valderramas

Mr. Customer said...

Not a bad effort, boys.

ROD BARAJAS IS THE JOURNEYMAN CATCHOR OF THIS ORGANIZATION!

Spanky said...

Win!!!

Dusty Baker said...

We make party in the USA!

karina said...

@Mr C not only you make me feel better, but you have a better hand than mine

bonus: there's a new trick for me in whist

Mr. Customer said...

^Catcher, if euchre about that sort of thing.

Dusty Baker said...

ROD BARAJAS IS THE PRESENT OF THIS ORGAZIZATION!

Josh S. said...

I can't wait for Barajasterios on Thursday.

karina said...

@Mr C is giving classes in how to became a croupier

MR. F said...

DENNIS MANNION IS THE PRESIDENT OF THIS ORGANIZATION!

Paul said...

We make party!!!

Here comes the sun - Beatles.

Paul said...

As I said last night we will rally around Rod Barajas and we will play good baseball!!

MR. F said...

Just because it's new...

Sufjan Stevens - All Delighted People

Mr. Customer said...

If anyone comes up with a really good (read: bad) pun for pinochle, I will worship them as a nerdy god.

Orel said...

I think we have to accept Kuo is not a very good pitcher.

karina said...

@Mr C that sounds more like a bet than anything else

Mr. Customer said...

@Karina

No, seriously. That would be the crowning achievement of card puns. Extra credit if it doesn't use "knuckle". I've been trying to think of one since this started.

Josh S. said...

@Orel: Ha!

Hell of a year for debuts in Blue, huh?

Barajas
Gibbons
Lilly
Jansen
Ely
I think even Link threw a scoreless inning in his first appearance.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Astros/Phillies continue to kill each other. Roy Oswalt is playing left. Phils have used eight pitchers already.

NicJ said...

Howard tossed from the phils game for arguing balls and strikes, kruk says its an over reaction and the ump is an embarrassment to baseball.

Last year manny gets tossed for flipping his elbow pad at the ump after a bad call and he says manny is an embarrassment to baseball.

Fat fucker.

NicJ said...

Kruk: wah wah wah wah wah wah wah phillies. Wah wah wah wah wah wah Chase Utley. Wah wah wah wah wah wah Sandwich.

Steve Sax said...

Wah wah wah wah wah pinochle

Paul said...

Enjoying a breakfast beer because it has to be breakfast somewhere!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kruck: Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah I love Philly.

Dave Winfield: Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah paycheck.

Joe Morgan: Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah numbers are voodoo.

Paul said...

Hey it might be breakfast in Philly.

NicJ said...

In my example Kruk was actually playing guitar, not crying.

Josh S. said...

Eric Collins: Wah wah wah wah WAAAH! WAAAHHH! WAAAAAAAAHHHHH! What did you do, Steve?

NicJ said...

Beer for breakfast?

Paul as in Paul Westerberg of the replacements?

Ive figured your identity out paul!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Who says mine isn't?

karina said...

@Mr C I just can't gamble on Pinochle.I'm a queen with one King James, a couple of Bills and Minotaur aces and no jacks.

It's terribly awful,I know, I apologize

NicJ said...

Wah is usually me when i find out its Eric Collins turn to do the PxP

rbnlaw said...

CHRISTMAS WILL BRING NO PRESENTS TO THIS ORGANIZATION.

NicJ said...

@Mlasf, the rhythm of the wah's in yours was obviously crying.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Um, uh, uh...

...

MUST CRUSH CAPITALISM. ER. AR.

Steve Sax said...

To the beat of the rhythm of the wahs
Dance until the morning light

NicJ said...

HA!

Steve Sax said...

Oh yeah, PGT up!

NicJ said...

George Harrision - Wah Wah

karina said...

@Mr LASF didn't Santa's Little Helper teach you something about Christmas?

Paul said...

Don't tell a soul Nic!

Neeebs said...

@MC:

I really had to chuckle when you mentioned pinochle.


Such a funny word.
