Game 141 Thread: Sept 9 @ Astros, 5p

Ted Lilly (8-9, 3.55) vs. Bud Norris (6-8, 5.34).

The two-games-under-.500 Dodgers face the seven-games-under-.500 Astros in a game that will be filled with about as much tension as a Kimbo Slice MMA match. Charley Steiner and Rick Monday are sure to fixate on the Dodgers' early morning arrival into Houston, and how the Dodgers will be overtired (as if, when you were 25 years old, a late night really affected your performance the following day). Don't let that fact fool you; truth is, the Dodgers haven't had more than four runs in a game since August 29 (10 games ago). You think that nubby hill in right-center field has something to do with it? Nah, Charley and Rick will assure you any on-field quirks are due to the infamous shadows. You think the date of today's game is the reason why the Dodgers are off to their most embarrassing year in the Joe Torre era? "Nein, nein!"

Is the last chance for the Collins Curse?

Paul said...

Torre: How you feel to today John?

Lindsay: Good skip!

Torre: great you are in......sane for staying in the minor leagues for that long!!

Lindsay: happy to be here just let me know what I can do and i will do it.

Torre: good cause I am gonna give you a chance tonight to...brush Bowa's hair.

Fred's Brim said...

After a horrendous start (17-34 after April and May), the Stros are actually playing pretty well. They are 49-39 since then and are 22-14 since August 1. I predict they pass us by early next week, maybe even Sunday

Paul said...

Oops Lindsey.

Mr. Customer said...

Josh S. said...

@FB: I hope it's the last chance for Collins himself.

I wanted to declare the Collins Curse over after the Milwaukee sweep. The problem is, the Dodgers are 3-9 since then. It seems breaking the curse created a whole new curse.

So, now I will curse. FUCK!

Josh S. said...

Beware the Therioeltjen!

Mr. Customer said...

I think Ownie Carroll could still break into the starting rotation.

Josh S. said...

@FB: Whoa. We are 15-21 since 8/1. We are fans of a terrible, terrible baseball team.

Mr. Customer said...

*sad trombone*

Paul said...

Strike up the band!!

rbnlaw said...

SWEINHUNDS!!!

Josh S. said...

HOARSE! ALL OF US!

WIR SIND HUREN HIER! SCHMUTZIG, SCHLAMPIG HUREN, IHR ALLE!

Mr. Customer said...

Dear San Diego,

Tritten sie auf dem Schwanz.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul 2:17p: dude, that is hilarious. mind if we riff off of this?

Steve Sax said...

"There is sauerkraut in my lederhosen."

Mr. Customer said...

Diesen Lederhosen sind in meinem Sauerkraut.

Mr. Customer said...

OK, I'll stop that now.

Josh S. said...

Gunter glieben glauchen globen!

Josh S. said...

^says the guy with a German last name

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DEF LEPPARD FTW

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh, and WHORES!

MR. F said...

I, for one, welcome our new German overlords.

Dusty Baker said...

Alright, I've got something to say
It's better to burn out than fade away!

Gonna start a fire, come on

Rise up, gather round, rock this place to the ground
Burn it up, let's go for broke, watch the night go up in smoke

====

Wait, what the hel is it with you and fire lately, Josh?

Spanky said...

Holy Shit! Now I'm getting language lessons. This is the Wal-Mart of Blogs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rock on (rock on)
Drive me crazier!
No serenade, no fire brigade
just pyromania!

Josh S. said...

That song was on my mind because I just got around to watching the Supernatural season finale a couple days ago.

Also, I'm Beavis.

FIRE!FIRE!FIRE!

Spanky said...

I just only want to burn in desire
Let me stand next to your Fire

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nothing fires up a Saints fan like Taylor Swift! NOW IT'S FOOTBALL SEASON!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So is Chuck God?

Josh S. said...

@MLASF: Chuck is Eric Kripke, for sure. He may or may not be God.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So that's why he disappeared. Because Kripke's not on board anymore.

MR. F said...

I feel so elusive in Houston
You feel so exclusive in Houston

MR. F said...

When you diss Dre you diss yourself!!!!!

Spanky said...

2-0 Bums in the lead already!? wow

Spanky said...

WTF does Dave Matthews have to do with football? LaCrosse maybe.

He's playin g Burning down the house. Aint that a bitch

Josh S. said...

For the record, Steiner said Dre's hit was "off the base of the wall," so needless to say I was confused when it was ruled a home run.

I...will take it.

Josh S. said...

What time does the Saints game actually start? I'm still on my way home.

Josh S. said...

Nevermind. I just found it on AM570.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's starting right now!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is what Steve Sax looks like now:

http://twitpic.com/2musoq

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Brett Favre is wearing ear plugs. CUT OUT THAT RACKET, YOU STUPID PUNKS.

Spanky said...

I've got this on mute. Fuck that

MR. F said...

Good work Spanky!

Spanky said...

AHHHHHHHHHHH YEAH!!!!!!1

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

THE ONE FUCKING TIME I HAVE TO ROOT AGAINST DREW BREES

MR. F said...

I tried finding that video of John Madden on the Simpsons talking about the great game of football, but youtube failed me.

Spanky said...

We've got Bush.

Spanky said...

What? Did something happen.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well, at least the Saints are winning.

Spanky said...

I don't trust Saints D. Sorry Karina

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time for Brett Favre to shine! (vomits)

Spanky said...

Mitchell up with 2 on

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ESPN has slowed to a crawl.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BRETT FAVRE DIDN'T EVEN THROW THE FUCKING BALL

Spanky said...

Because of A.P.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'M ALREADY DOWN 6-0? DAMMIT

Spanky said...

These fantasy games are going to be high scoring affairs

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Alright. Vikings have good field position. C'mon, Favre, do something dammit!

Spanky said...

Ripe time for an INT

Dusty Baker said...

Mr F said "When you diss Dre you diss yourself!!!!!"

Oh yeah. I've been meaning to use that line for a while. Dre just hasn't done anything to merit it in a long time.

MR. F said...

@DB. Yeah, I thought that line might get overused, but this may be the last chance to use it for awhile =/.

Dusty Baker said...

You can never overuse classic rap lines like that.

But I try.

karina said...

@Spanky smack talk whatever you want, but I'm not giving you the Saints D (not this week, at least)

Epale everyone!

karina said...

Steve Sax looks sleek!

Spanky said...

@ Karina

I actually need them to hold Farve down

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, K.

You're really taking it to El Profesor so far.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SACK SACK SACK

Spanky said...

Oh Snap! Karina with the big lead

Spanky said...

3 more points MLASF

MR. F said...

Football talk?

Spanky said...

Lilly's about to give it up

karina said...

No harm done, go Lilly!

Spanky said...

Lilly got out of it

MR. F said...

Yaay.

Spanky said...

Excuse me. Epale Karina!

karina said...

@Spanky @Mr C I'm on the fantasy site. I watch number and try to understand,

The Professor has any active players. My D is actually doing very well, I think.

karina said...

^numbers

Josh S. said...

I have no vested fantasy interest, so FAIL FAVRE FAIL!!!

karina said...

Guys, I need a favor: I'm taking the IELTS on Nov. 20th, so if you feel like correcting my grammar, please feel free to so. The lowest score I can get in every part of the exam is 7 out of 9.

I feel the countdown just started: I'm gonna freak out 'till May/June of next year.

a question, if I apply for Grad School in January, how long will it take 'till I know I got accepted or not?

Spanky said...

@ Karina

If your offensive players get yards and/or touchdowns you get points. If your D does not you get points.

But you can't quote me on that

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

It would be entirely unlike me ever to correct anyone's grammar.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I done ain't know no grammar, and I's sure as heck ain't one to be correcting grammar of someone else. Darn tootin'.

Spanky said...

Did the Dodgers just bring up white guys or what?

karina said...

@Dusty Baker @Mr LASF hahahahaha :_(

Dusty Baker said...

How did we turn into the whitest team since pre-Jackie? All these white people make me nerovus.

karina said...

Quintero, one of my favorite players!

Spanky said...

It's like the 1930's with these fools

Dusty Baker said...

But since you asked, Karina.

One thing I not is your use of the English preposition "on" a lot when you really mean "in." That's something to watch if you're saying it or writing it to matter. Because around here it doesn't matter. ;-)

Dusty Baker said...

^nervous

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

In fact, it's like September 9, 1933, per the lineup I posted above.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Because Kemp, Loney, Jansen, and Lindsey scream white?

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

I figure Jake Flowers as a Cuban. Hence the surname.

karina said...

Thanks, Dusty.

Any help is greatly welcomed.

Spanky said...

INT. Baby

karina said...

100!

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF:

Pretty white:

Scott Podsednik, LF
Jamey Carroll, SS
Andre Ethier, RF
James Loney, 1B
Russ Mitchell, 3B
Ryan Theriot, 2B
Trent Oeltjen, CF
A.J. Ellis, C
Ted Lilly, P

Almost Lilly white, one might say. Haw! *cracking self up with lame pun*

karina said...

Flowery language you use, Mr. Baker

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Three of those guys are not regular starters.

Belisario, Troncoso, Barajas, Monasterios, Dotel, Kuroda, Hu, Kuo, Ethier, Kemp, Loney, Lindsey, Padilla, Jansen, Furcal

We also had Anderson. Is ethnic diversity worth a crappier team?

Meaniebreanie said...

Epale Y'all
I feel so conflicted. The Dodgers on one channel and Saints/Vikings on another. The remote is getting a workout.

GO SAINTS!

Spanky said...

I'm getting off this subject before I offend someone (Even though I'm a beaner)

Whatever that means Even though.

karina said...

Oetljen, there's something I like you: you smile a lot.

Can you strike out less? please?

Spanky said...

He missed it

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Whoever has Hartley cannot be happy about that.

Spanky said...

Break his collarbone

Dusty Baker said...

Don't interrupt me when I'm making fun of Light Hitting White Guys!

Spanky said...

Fuck You Farve!

Meaniebreanie said...

Wouldn't you know Hartley is my kicker @#$%^!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I should have started Shiancoe. Fuck.

karina said...

Minnesota touchdown!

I'm not really a football fan but this Favre dude is really annoying. ESPN gives more coverage to him than if Derek Jeter got traded to the Red Sox

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

P. Ditty's got Longwell. He can't be happy about that.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This isn't the offensive game people thought it would be.

Spanky said...

They gave longwell a point on the miss

Dusty Baker said...

Even Steiner knew that one was gone.

Mr. Customer said...

Shite.

Meaniebreanie said...

Hells Bells - 3 run homer and the Lastro's take the lead.

karina said...

new game :(

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh well.

Dusty Baker said...

Even non-football fans know Favre is a dutch bag.

karina said...

I forgot about Carlos Lee :(

Spanky said...

Farve being Farve

Dodgers being Dodgers

Josh S. said...

I knew when that strike was called a ball that the AB was going to end badly for Lilly.

Mr. Customer said...

Nice snag.

Josh S. said...

Pretty slick catch by the Aussie, but Collins barely reacted. How unlike him.

karina said...

I need to see that catch. It is supposed he can't hit but he can't play defense well.

Dusty Baker said...

Well, look who is up to bat.

Josh S. said...

WORTH THE WAIT

karina said...

Go Lindsey, it's time for a first hit.

On the mound, another guy from Maracaibo.

Mr. Customer said...

God damn it, Giants already up by 1. Get your shit together San Diego.

Spanky said...

Rancho Droopiendo

Josh S. said...

OK, Karina, it's King James time.

Josh S. said...

Dethroned.

Dusty Baker said...

I hate this King James version.

karina said...

No Big Game King James tonight :(

Spanky said...

At least it was not a double play?

Mr. Customer said...

@db

Verily, dost thou?

Meaniebreanie said...

Come on Gibbons, drive in some runs!

Meaniebreanie said...

DAMMIT!

Spanky said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meaniebreanie said...

Whoo hoo, Saints score!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Woohoo! Saints take the lead, and it's a rushing TD!

Spanky said...

PASS THE BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Spanky said...

I got another point though

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Favre gets a TD, we're tied.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Pierre Thomas is really helping out Nic.

Paul said...

What did I miss?

Mr. F is an OG.


I just started fall league. 2 for 4 and bb. A slappy single and a pulled double down the line. (Ned would trade for me) Now I have to flake on the next few games. No time for the game anymore (unless it is on my couch or computer).

Spanky said...

Astros made out like Janes Addiction

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

karina said...

hahaha, congrats Paul!

karina said...

Paul, we needed you in the 6th.

NicJ said...

PIERRE!!!!

the good one, not juan.

Meaniebreanie said...

We're up to bat again. Let's hope we can do something!

Spanky said...

BROXTON? BROXTON!?

Josh S. said...

A NON-CANADIAN DODGER CATCHER THREW OUT A RUNNER!!!

NicJ said...

harvin isnt giving me shit though.

Come on Favre, go all gunslinger.

Spanky said...

Break his leg

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit. This is all Harvin's fault.

Spanky said...

AHH Man

Mr. Customer said...

Oh, crap. That was awful.

NicJ said...

saints D is good, but favre looks terrible.

NicJ said...

looked like a catch to me.

Spanky said...

I agree with Michaels

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Looked good.

Paul said...

I can't figure out if you'all are watching the baseball game or football. I need to get to a television.

Spanky said...

Ah Yeah. Too bad Farve

Meaniebreanie said...

Paul
More football at this point. Dodgers are about to drop another.

NicJ said...

the dodgers are far too depressing to watch.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Who wants to watch baseball?

Meaniebreanie said...

Even sPods looks like he's about to cry.

Spanky said...

I'm doing both. Nothing hapenning in Dodgerland

Spanky said...

1 more out till another loss

NicJ said...

ive got the picture in picture going.

but the dodgers have been banished to the little box.

Meaniebreanie said...

Dodgers shot down in flames. Now back to football.

Spanky said...

PASS THE BALL!!

! more point MLasf

Mr. Customer said...

Balls.

NicJ said...

no RUN THE BALL!!!

karina said...

how can you mend a broken heart-Al Green

Meaniebreanie said...

DAMMIT, I should have started Shockey this week. Witten better not let me down!

Mr. Customer said...

Way to be, Paul. Don't give in an bring the unblinking eye into your home.

Spanky said...

Somebody get me a doctor-Van Halen

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

NicJ said...

DAMN YOU BREES!!

Josh S. said...

Scheisse.

Mr. Customer said...

Meacham had that, the bahstad.

MR. F said...

Dodgers lose and no "screwing the Giants" silver lining =(

Spanky said...

Idiot! put him on waivers

Dusty Baker said...

Really glad Meachum didn't catch that; would have helped MR C against me.

NicJ said...

missed FG.

Meaniebreanie said...

For the record AC/DC Shot Down in Flames.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hartley fails again.

Josh S. said...

^That applies to the Saints drive too.

NicJ said...

Hartley is break even in fantasy points.

Spanky said...

Who has the Saints Kicker? MB? P.Ditty?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

P. Ditty has Longwell. MB has Hartley.

Meaniebreanie said...

Hartley is killing me!!
