Game 129 Thread: August 27 @ Rox, 6p

Clayton Kershaw (11-8, 3.07) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (17-4, 2.66).

[Sax here.] For all of Clayton's awesomeness, Accuscore (in todaysWSJ) predicts we will lose 4.8 runs to 3. They're so bearish on us that we don't even merit a fractional run. So will the boys in blue (with a three-game win streak) defeat the Rox and halt their four-game win streak? Manny's 2010 fate (likely) hangs in the balance!

Just got back from the store. Did Beard Mode go Boom?

Steve Sax said...

@Meanie 9:07p: nice!

Actually it's not our infrastructure that is an issue. We are paying our bills again. It's blogger that needs more hamsters on the habitrail treadmill.

Mr. Customer said...

Whew. Emergency cat rescue accomplished. Back to the game.

Steve Sax said...

Neeebs: "bearded salami" (penned by mr customer) is all you need to know.

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

Josh's got dibs. I was merely expressing incredulity.

Meaniebreanie said...

@Sax - you are the SoSG techno genious. Our fate and that of blogger is in your hands. There has got to be a better way.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr C, you have an emergency cat?

Is his name Randolph Mantooth?

Steve Sax said...

In case of mouse, summon emergency cat

Meaniebreanie said...

MB may already be dreaming **wishes Kemp would knock one out for some insurance.

MR. F said...

I'd like to see Kemp get a hit...

Paul said...

Colorado has a lot of new guys in their pen.

Steve Sax said...

Red Sox did end up beating the Rays 3-1, I'll give them that. Yankmes also lost.

Phils take a 2-1 lead with rancho ardiendo and one out, top 8

karina said...

Emergency cat?

Paul said...

Nice!

Steve Sax said...

Kemp with a two out in play, run(s)

(I don't know what it is yet)

Meaniebreanie said...

Come on Loney. Drive them in!

Paul said...

Fuckin Pads (in my bawstan accent)

Steve Sax said...

FJL 0-for-4 with a IBB and run scored.

Not a good night.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm ready make party

Drive by...

Steve Sax said...

@Meanie 9:14p: if I'm the tech guy, we are in a lot of trouble.

I don't even facebook.

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

Neither my cat nor Randolph Mantooth, but I can now verify that feline rescue is not the ideal profession for four slightly drunk humans.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty just grabbed some poor bystander's iphone to radio in

Steve Sax said...

@mr c, hopefully you didn't have to give CPR.

Hey, and what are you drunk for? We need you fresh fir P&A 27 tomorrow morning!!!

Steve Sax said...

Kuo with out #2

Josh S. said...

They make winning streaks that go to four now?

Meaniebreanie said...

@Sax - my illusions are shattered. The way you talk about technology I though you were our guru. On the opposite spectrum, I FB and know absolutely nothing about technology (nor do I really want to know). In college I passed my mandatory 3 hr Computer Science class only because my professor liked me and took mercy on me.

I'm sure the SoSG readership can devise a better way. Mmm a topic that perhaps could be discussed over scotch.

MR. F said...

Victory!

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

No first aid for anyone but me, as my thumb is now perforated.

And I did say SLIGHTLY drunk.

Paul said...

Make the party!!!

Blue Beard - Band of Horses.

Meaniebreanie said...

@Mr. C - war wounds for a noble cause. Drink some more, take some aspirin, and in the morning start with some Bloody Mary's. You will be in perfect shape for P&A.

Meaniebreanie said...

WE WIN - TIME TO MAKE SERIOUS PARTY

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

That's a training regimen I can endorse enthusiastically.

Dusty Baker said...

Got dayum der's a party up in dis bish!!!

Mr. Customer said...

While we're out from under Dusty's watchful eye, the Rox mascot is a dinosaur because the first triceratops fossil was discovered near Denver, and the great basin in general is noted for a well-preserved fossil record.

Personally, I don't know why they didn't go with Jan-Michael Vincent, though.

This concludes clandestine mascot talk for the evening.

Mr. Customer said...

Damn! Where'd he come from?

Dusty Baker said...

I saw that Mr C!!!! You're in time out. Time out from the party we makin up in dis bish.

Meaniebreanie said...

That DB is a slippery one!

Mr. Customer said...

Balls. I'll be in my room listening to party being made downstairs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So what'd I miss, something awesome?


...


Oh shit, I did.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Mr C

Glad you found your pussy cat.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up. It's a trap.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, the Pods tied up that bish in Whale's Vagina.

Steve Sax said...

@Meanie 9:33p: Scotch, on the other hand, I can speak to.

And drink.

Paul said...

Pawds tie it up. Wicked awesome!!

Meaniebreanie said...

@Sax - hoists glass your way and says "Cheers". You always savor it more after a really good win.

Dusty Baker said...

*makes party*
