Game 136 Thread: September 4 vs. Giants, 7p

Ted Lilly (5-1, 3.29) vs. Matt Cain (10-10, 3.11).

[Sax here again.] Watching those highlights of Chad Billingsley singlehandedly beat the Giants yesterday really has to chap a Giants' fan's hide. I mean, here's a guy that is harangued his whole career about not being an ace, and he not only strikes out seven over eight innings and holds the Giants to two runs, but he also drives in the winning runs with a 2-RBI single to right fielder Jose Guillen, who botches what could have been a fly out.

So here they go again in the second game of the three-game weekend series, with Cubs pariah Lilly going against beloved #2 starter Matt Cain. This one's gotta be in the bag, right Giants fans?

Pack of cards!

Monkeys!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Flower power!

Dusty Baker said...

Big dogs, landing on my face!

Josh S. said...

BevMo time. In pursuit of some Firestone Union Jack IPA.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

I just got back from there. Though I wasn't specifically looking for the Union jack, I don't recall seeing any at the Arroyo Pky BevMo. Have some Firestone DBA in my fridge, though.

Neeebs said...

Pack of cards???

Looks like all Jokers.

NicJ said...

damn DB, ARK is killing it right now.

karina said...

They are also used to read Tarot. The men of my family play a game called "Pampleta" with those.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jimminy Christmas, Oregon scored 72 points.

NicJ said...

with a new QB

NicJ said...

Barner just went nuts in the first half.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No kidding, 8.6 yards per carry, that's insane.

Josh S. said...

@DB burbank had it. A little pricier than I like to pay for a sixer, but IPAs are always overpriced. Chilling some in the freezer now.

Josh S. said...

Dammit. There are no mountains on my beer to tell me when it's cold. I might be screwed here.

Spanky said...

About to start up the grill and cook some steaks. During this procedure I will pour me a beer and give a toast to my pops who's recovering from bypass surgery in POD RAYS land.

Here's to you, You Silly Bastard.

Josh S. said...

*raises glass*

To Papa Spank!

karina said...

Pops Spank, get well very soon!

Epale everyone!

Mr. Customer said...

Fucking Padres lost AGAIN? Well, I guess we'll have to do our part tonight.

karina said...

Tonight I won't be around,there's a housewarming party to attend

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

To Spank's Papi!

karen said...

Hello Everyone!

Get well wishes to Papa Spanky

Now let's go out and beat these bastards!

Mr. Customer said...

Beer status: Spaten Märzen.

Spanky said...

Thanx Peeps!

Should have heard what he was telling the nurses after he awoken.

Nasty Fucker. HaHa

Mr. Customer said...

Surly Status: 5

Why couldn't San Diego melt down when we were playing them?

Spanky said...

Strike him out Lilly

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C: I like Spaten Oktoberfest. I've never had the Märzen.

Mr. Customer said...

Nice! Threat ended.

Josh S. said...

The better question is why couldn't we sweep the Phils and Rox when the Pods were melting down.

Mr. Customer said...

I am torn on the subject of players I dislike playing for teams I dislike. If they have success, it doubles my annoyance, but it does keep all my hate in one tidy location.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

Wait! I know this one!

Spanky said...

We play the Pods next,no.

Spanky said...

Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

karen said...

Come on Teddy boy, settle down

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

I believe you would like the Märzen, then! (hint: they're the same beer)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

In other news, Dylan Hernandez has combined two of his greatest loves: Hank Schulman and Dodger Stadium attendance. Now if there were some way to add Neal ElAttrache and V-Energy...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I still dislike Cody Ross.

karen said...

Joe West is an asshole

Spanky said...

Have I mentioned that I want to punch Torre's face everytime it pops up on T.V.

Spanky said...

I Really, Really Do!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Has anyone mentioned that Matt Cain only has one win against the Dodgers? One win!

Spanky said...

That's right Ethier. No fear of the wall you delicate mutt.

Spanky said...

Holy Shit!

ETHIER!?!?

karen said...

Good catch, Andre

Spanky said...

I thought Dre was toast on the second fly out.

Spanky said...

I believe this is my time I will see Barajas,Tajertas,playing cards,Whatever hit for the Dodgers.

Spanky said...

^first

Spanky said...

MANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNY

Josh S. said...

Are we going to have Gibbons next year, or will Madame Toussaud's want their Owen Wilson wax figure back?

MR. F said...

At least Lilly isn't leading off the net inning.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

A lot of fucks ran concurrently on MCC.

Neeebs said...

OO OO Ahh Ahh

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

"OMG FUCK YOU VIN SCULLY

YOU ARE SUCH A FUCKIG ASSHOLE.

Calling Matt a “huge disappointment” for the Giants because he isn’t the ace and isn’t a winning pitcher.

I’ve lost a whole lot of respect for him right now"

I WANT FUCKING BLOOD

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty finally up in dis bish.

*wipes brow*

Needed to go to a work function tonight and couldn't follow the game. MDIL broke it down for me on what happened.

I'll take it 4-0.

I hate the Jints.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Ryan Mallett up in dish bish!!!

MR. F said...

LOL @ MCC.

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry, but catching up...

Hope Papa Spank has a speedy recovery, Spanky. Here's to him.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

FUCK NOTRE DAME

I want them all to tear an ACL simultaneously.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I do dislike Notre Dame. Damn them and their Brad Lidge.

Spanky said...

BRADY QUINN IS THE FUTURE OF NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL


Was?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The corpse of Aubrey Huff is slowly returning to it's corpse-like state.

karen said...

Oh no, FJL!

Dusty Baker said...

That's alright, JLo. Happens to the best of us.

Spanky said...

Should have worn Cheetahs Loney.

Dusty Baker said...

Loney scores on Casey Blakes' doub.....oh.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

TOOTBLAN?

MR. F said...

FUCKING JAMES LONEY

Dusty Baker said...

AIn't mad atcha, JLo.

Dusty Baker said...

I wonder if Jints fans will make a GIF of JLo rounding second chasing cake?

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Is your beer cold yet? How will you know?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Dusty - That reminds me, I have yet to mock Pablo's weight.

He's a fatty, that fatty.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, we're winning!

Spanky said...

Fuck That

karen said...

I really hate Buster Posey

Dusty Baker said...

As soon as VIn said that re how many Lilly had retired in a row, you KNEW Parker Posey was going to knock the next pitch into next week.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I HATE YOU OYSTER PUBES

Dusty Baker said...

The thing that scared me re Lilly is that he has a bot of that Kevin Costner in Tin Cup bit going on, where if he gives one up he keeps offering the same pitch, or metaphorically asking for another golf ball only to send it into the lake.

MR. F said...

FUCKING OYSTER PUBES

Spanky said...

Am I unpatriotic to rather see Take Me Out To The Ball Game and not G.B.A. Or am I an asshole?

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

Nightly, or daily during day games, I mute GBA. hate that shit. Not sure if I hate jingoism or religion more. It's a close call. This song has both.

Mr. Customer said...

I dislike GBA now that it is every game, everywhere. Enough to make tou love the Jays.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I really want to see Boise State wipe the floor with Virginia Tech tomorrow just to hear Colin Cowherd spin it so that non-BCS teams still suck ass.

Mr. Customer said...

^you

Spanky said...

Lilly served that shit up

Dusty Baker said...

Lilly pitching in Wrigley was never going to be a good idea. Man can he give up some homers.

MR. F said...

I like my religion but hate GBA.

Mr. Customer said...

Death by 1000 cuts? Well, hopefully less than 4 anyway.

Spanky said...

Time to crack open a beer (Torre Sighting)

Dusty Baker said...

NO-tel!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Has the team called up any pitchers yet? Or have they only brought Ellis and Raffy back?

Dusty Baker said...

"fewer" Mr. C!

#DustyBakerIsMyCopyEditor

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Icon! He's an icon! He's an icon! She's an icon! Icon!

(points to Dotel)

No-con!

Dusty Baker said...

@ MLASF

No and then yes.

Jason said...

@Spanky, Mr. C & DB - I'm on your side. Why with the GBA every day? Are we the Yankees or something? Let Nancy Bea play some America the Beautiful on the organ.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit, just bring up Link and Ely already, Ned.

Spanky said...

I'm unreligion but I respect everyone's faith. But the way G.B.A. is rammed down our throats because of 9/11 like if we are idiots to forget is maddening.

MR. F said...

PLEASE WIN THIS GAME

Steve Sax said...

Yikes, it's 4-2 now!

Come on Dodgers!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wait, when did T-Slick go on the DL?

Spanky said...

Lilly, What Gives!

MR. F said...

FURK FUCRK FUCK FUCK

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

YOU SUCK DOTEL WE WANT JMAC

NicJ said...

I'm blaming Loney if we lose this game. That trip on the basepaths cost us an extra run.

Spanky said...

We Want Betty White!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What's a furk?

Dusty Baker said...

Dotel literally hasn't thrown a good pitch since we obtained him. It's either a ball->walk or a HR.

My STOOPID TORRE finger is itching.

NicJ said...

Dotel hasn't had one swing and miss yet.

karen said...

Torre to the mound again.

Another beer for you, Spanky

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Neal ElAttrache is back.

Spanky said...

Why fucking now Torre? Ya pa Que?

Dusty Baker said...

I was at a party and the score was 4-0. I came home to watch the last 5 innings, and as soon as I started watching we started licking rim. Should I go back to the party?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You must make party for us to make party.

Spanky said...

@ Karen

This is the best late game beer drinking game ever created

Did that maqke sense?

Josh S. said...

Dotel needs to be left off the playoff roster when we win the division.

(I've decided to go full-on delusional for September.)

Jason said...

Dotel is the Pirates revenge for the Manny trade. Neil Huntington is a fickle SOB.

Dusty Baker said...

HELLUVA PLAY, Wide Eyes.

Josh S. said...

We also will need some sort of RMart/Barajas hybrid.

Jason said...

@Dusty - Go back! For the love of God Bless America, go back!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SUCK IT OYSTER PUBES

Dusty Baker said...

How are those Firestones treating you, Josh?

I had several Dos XX at a housewarming party (not the one Karina is at now) and got home to a nice 24oz Red Stripe. I have to say I'm really into these strange-bottled treats that Red Stripe puts out.

#beerstatus

karen said...

Hurry Dusty, go back to your party!

Spanky said...

How did Piazza have such a big bat and such a small arm all at the same time?

Josh S. said...

@DB: The Union Jacks have treated me well, thank you for asking. They've got a decent kick (7.5%), so two have me just right.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, this game is tantalizingly close for the Giants. They can probably already taste the victory...

Jason said...

@Josh - Light weight! (though seriously, don't drink and drive kids)

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

That's not victory the Jints are tasting; it's my ass.

#tellmehowmyasstasteoysterpubes

Dusty Baker said...

So hows that third one, Josh?

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Brox. I believe.

karen said...

9th inning

Hang on everyone

NicJ said...

I have a feeling this will be embarrassing.

Spanky said...

That Farmer John Banner is giving me a calm effect.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Broxton walks Guillen, then I concede defeat.

Josh S. said...

I can be a lightweight at times, which is surprising considering my 6'5", 270 lb. frame. Other times, I can drink and drink and feel nothing. It's weird.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Ross gets on base, then I concede defeat.

Josh S. said...

Brox had become a disciple of The Beard.

Jason said...

@Josh - Sounds like a roofie problem.

Also, Brox, mix in a slider or two.

karen said...

Shit!!

rbnlaw said...

GOLDEN SOMBRERO BITCH.

then a bad call at first.

I'm catching up.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !

Josh S. said...

Dint concede defeat, MLASF. That was as close as can be.

NicJ said...

Beginning of the end.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I CONCEDE DEFEAT

rbnlaw said...

I know I'm late, but Josh is 6'5"?

He's really Broxton?



Why are the Dodgers so fucked?

Josh S. said...

I CONCEDE DEFEAT

karen said...

Broxton.

Enough said.

el montanero said...

goddammit.

Dusty Baker said...

DEFEAT IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION!

Spanky said...

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I knew it. Dammit to hell but I knew it.

NicJ said...

Knew it.

rbnlaw said...

FUCK THE FUCKING GIANTS THOSE FUCKS.

Josh S. said...

We haven't had a walk-off since June 2. We're overdue.

(Back to delusional mode.)

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Jason said...

That is on me. I requested the slider. I will now kill myself via alcohol poisoning.

*hangs head in shame*

karen said...

This team is such a heartbreaker

NicJ said...

Well we are guaranteed to win tomorrow because it's an espn game. You know those always go well for us.

el montanero said...

to paraphrase a fine movie, broxton would have a better chance playing pick up sticks with his buttcheeks than of picking up a save.

Spanky said...

@ Jason

Kick some dirt too

rbnlaw said...

I'm posting on MOKM only from now on.


No, I'm not.

But goddammit. This is a bunch of shit.

Mr. Customer said...

Le sigh

NicJ said...

Loney screwed us out of that extra run.

rbnlaw said...

*taps foot waiting for beer to get cold*

Dusty Baker said...

Can I go ahead and post my game song?

rbnlaw said...

Hi, I'm Jon Broxton.

I used to be effective.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

Hope you will be able to tell when it gets cold!

rbnlaw said...

FUCK YOU FAT PANDA!!!

Dusty Baker said...

WASH YOUR HAIR, TIMMEH!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Not only should your beer have mountains to turn blue, the box that carries the beer should have a hole in it so you could see said mountains.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FATSO'S STILL FAT
