Game 143 Thread: Sept 11 @ Astros, 4p

John Ely (4-7, 4.63) vs. Wandy Rodriguez (11-12, 3.77).

COMMENTS: OMG OMG, Elymania is back! In this pleasureless shitheap of a season, there are few things to be excited about. John Ely is one of them. Is he the future of this organization, or just a future trade chip? Will he find a place alongside Bills and Kershaw, or will he just be one of the guys we got for Juan Pierre? Give us a sign, Elymania!

Steve Sax said...

Posey K and they get the pinch-runner at second on the same play. Padres re-take sole possession of first place.

Steve Sax said...

@Spanky: I'd say something back, but my throat's a little WHORES.

Steve Sax said...

Posey K and they get the pinch-runner at second on the same play. Padres re-take sole possession of first place.

Spanky said...

Half the line up are Isotopes.

What a sad,sad state of affairs.

@ Saxy

If you keep it up by the end of the day expect a brothel full of WHORES.

Paul said...

Quit this whoresin around.

karina said...

Is it me or is there a chance King James isn't feeling well and/or tired?

Spanky said...

karen said...

Epale Everyone!

karina said...

This is a PERFECT Saturday so far.I drew a LOT (and liked what I did), read and ate cachapa, one of my favorite meals in the whole wide world.

The Revenge of the Sith is at the TV. Later,I'm going to a party.

I don't care if the Dodgers lose, this day is too good.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

I would say it's because of a lack of something........hitting maybe the reason Loney is not playing.

karen said...

@karina...I was wondering if something might be up with King James, too.

karina said...

There's any info around King James, I'm sure if it is not for his lack of hitting, that's not how Torre rolls.

karen said...

@karina...My daughter is an artist as well and loves to spend hours drawing, too. What do yo draw?

Oops, Casey thrown out of game.

NicJ said...

JOE GOT THROWN OUT?!?

HE QUIT ON THE TEAM!!!

BLAH BLAH BLAH

karen said...

^Joe

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DON MATTINGLY IS THE MANAGER GAME OVER MAN GAME OVER

NicJ said...

i hope the photographer moves away from the field mic. That shutter sound is annoying.

karina said...

what happened?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ElyMania is dead. Just accept it.

karina said...

@karen I'm a graphic designer but mostly, I draw children's stuff. I wanna be a children's book writer and illustrator. I have a thing with patterns too.

I go to drawing class on Saturdays (not today, I didn't want to get out) and I go to posemaniacs.com everyday and do its 30-second drawing 4 times a day. I also, depending on my spare time, 3 or 4 of its figures a week.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Outfield assist for Gibbons!

NicJ said...

The Say Jay Gib!!

meh, that nickname kinda sucks.

Spanky said...

Torre finally showed some sign of life eh. Ya pa que!

Steve Sax said...

I know it's 9/11, but these white caps are ridiculously lame.

Fred's Brim said...

agreed, Saxy

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I really wish they'd go back to using the dark blue caps from 2008.

NicJ said...

college football has been a little boring today.

well besides Mich beating ND.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ohio State/Miami and Oklahoma/Florida State did not shape up the way I had wanted them to. But I like the outcomes.

Fred's Brim said...

looks a lot like Pedro Cerrano at bat

Fred's Brim said...

@Nic - I guess somebody had to win that one

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lindsey hasn't worked out so well.

NicJ said...

Ore @ Tenn is in a lightning delay.

WHORES!

Steve Sax said...

Elymania

not Ely, but an incredible simulation.

Fred's Brim said...

GAARP is sitting in his living room, fuming

Steve Sax said...

Is it a little Wandy in here?

Fred's Brim said...

sorry, Sax. I had a big barrito for lunch today

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stoopid lightning.

NicJ said...

errybody in da club gettin Wandy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Everyone knows it's Wandy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Remember everyone praising Washington and Jake Locker? Yeah, that's not working out so well.

karina said...

Ely is sharp tonight.

NicJ said...

NOOO. Dont let Syracuse win. We will have to hear about it forever from siciliano.

NicJ said...

cal just destroyed colo.

welcome to the Pac-10, punks.


(in 2012)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Anyone who votes for VT tomorrow will be stoned to death.

NicJ said...

Ely is looking pretty damn good tonight.

Oh, and he is pitching well too.

NicJ said...

LA BAMBA!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

karina said...

para bailar la bamba, para bailar la bamba se necesita una poca de gracia, una poca de gracia, pa'ti pa'mi y allá arriba arriba...

NicJ I'm gonna to have this song stuck in my head for the rest of the night.

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry I'm late but:

La la la la la la la la la la Barba!

NicJ said...

Errybody on our club hitting wandy.

Josh S. said...

AY JAY!

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Houston sucks. AJ Ellis just got a RBI single.

3-0 LA

karina said...

Dusty, are you sound and safe in Orlando?

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit! I didn't have the benefit of reading previous comments befor I went with the La Barba/La Bamba reference. It hasn't been done before to my recollection, so I thought I was hot snot on a silver platter, but turns out I'm cold boogers on a paper plate. Boooooo Dusty.

Ps- @ Sax - avatar is Bushwick Bill from Geto Boys (Houston rap outfit from back in tha day).

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Wait a minute

Yahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Ps - Nic you are My personal Jesus and hero for the J-Kwon tipsy references. MVP! MVP!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't care for Eric Collins.

NicJ said...

how does he trip and still get a triple.

that kemp sure is good at baseball.

NicJ said...

cant stop, wont stop with the J-Kwon references.

Steve Sax said...

Gibbons did his best Manny impression with that misadventure in left field.

3-1 LA, Ely shaky.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So let's see how the Dodgers lose this one.

NicJ said...

it doesnt seem like kemp sees the ball well in this place.

NicJ said...

i dont really care much about the rest of the season.

Just beat the giants.

Steve Sax said...

Ely is struggling again, three straight hits

3-2 LA

Steve Sax said...

All tied at 3 in the fifth.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If we lose, we could take the Mets' spot in the draft order.

Just saying.

karina said...

there's no way the Dodgers are doing worse than the Mets.

Poor Delino

NicJ said...

haha, i was just looking at the reverse standings earlier today.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Eric Collins is unnaturally excited by balls hit off Wandy Rodriguez.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If we lose, we jump from 16th to 14th as a result of Milwaukee's compensatory pick.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I guess this is why Lindsey has never made the big leagues.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm really whoring the thread, aren't I?

Steve Sax said...

I feel so alone.

NicJ said...

oregon's run defense looks terrible tonight.

Spanky said...

STOOPID ELY

I leave to get beer with a 3 run lead and now were tied. Party Pooper

Spanky said...

Whose watching North Dakota vs.Northern Illinois? Raise your hands Fools!

Mr. Customer said...

*Okie content of thread increases by 1*

Epale, y'all.

I see we're not losing.

I approve!

Spanky said...

RUSS MITCHELL IS THE FUTURE OF ANOTHER ORGANIZATIONS MINOR LEAGUE SYSTEM

Spanky said...

Flat Breezy! Ladies and Gents

Spanky said...

Tennessee

Tennessee

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Apparently, A.J. Ellis and George Sherrill both went to Austin Peavy State University.

We must destroy this school before they produce more terrible Dodgers.

Spanky said...

I wonder if Torre's passing notes over to his pet.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They text.

Spanky said...

Torre's so old, He uses the Pony Express.

Dusty Baker said...

Blogger burped for awhile. I astutely canceled the impromptu hallway meeting I was in and ran back up to my room. Does this post take? Please?

karina said...

It's a tied game!

they'll win this game, don't lose hope

NicJ said...

the vol's PA guy sounds a little bit like larry the cable guy.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, it's ol' Gordon Sumner!

Spanky said...

Can't Stand Losing................You

Spanky said...

Gibbons is doing alright

Lindsey I'll give a couple more chances

Mitchell-No Comment

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hope they lose this game. I want to jump up two draft spots.

Josh S. said...

Ha! KCAL knows it's over. That ad just said "Dodgers head to Bay Area to play spoiler to the Giants postseason hopes. Dodgers can't win win the West, watch them keep the Giants out of the playoffs!"

Josh S. said...

^the Bay Area & Giants'

Dusty Baker said...

FOr the record: I just paid 54 US for 3 Sam Adams and 3 Bud Light LImes brought up to my room. No, there's no bevvy joint nearby. Sometimes a brother's gotta do what a brother's gotta do.

Dusty Baker said...

Why the living F is this game blacked out on MLB.TV? I am in the middle of friggin nowhere and not remotely near either LA or Astros TV territory.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID DODGERS LOSE THIS GAME DAMMIT

Fred's Brim said...

woohoo!
something good happened to the Dodgers!

Josh S. said...

WOW! That was Dodger-like.

Dusty Baker said...

Johnson scored!

He says with a wry grin.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB I am getting it on the dotTeeVee

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Doesn't MLB.tv black out based on your account location, not your physical location?

Dusty Baker said...

Woo hoo! Free runs!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only the Dodgers could suck at sucking.

Mr. Customer said...

Whoo-hoo

Not only not losing, but actually winning!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't know why Astro fans are giving a Bronx cheer, they should be used to Houston's poor play.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Yes and no. If it determines that one's physical location is in viewing area, it defaults to asking one for his/her info and the proceeds to check physical location based on IP address. So, when I'm in DC (often), I can watch flawlessly. Don't know why tonight I cant do the same.

Spanky said...

I'm gonna go and grill some abused chickens.

I bet Dem Bums blow this while I'm away

karina said...

My new avatar was inspired by the new trendy word here. The Police rules! (I also listened to Outlandos d' Amour a couple of days ago)

We are winning! Go Blue!

I'm off, my friend will be here in any minute.

Good Night guys!

rbnlaw said...

ROCKY PATEL IS THE FUTURE OF MY SMOKING!!

Dusty Baker said...

VPad has a bulging di...sc and is done for the year. Hit the showers, Battle Toad! Wait, how will we know if he's showered given his perspiration?

rbnlaw said...

By the way,
Odelay, whores!


I was watching a yawner, and a Dodger game broke out.

Mr. Customer said...

Cheers Karina!

rbnlaw said...

Don't none of youse tell me about the Arsenal game, either. I have it DVR'd.

Screw Chelsea (at this point).

Dusty Baker said...

RBN, don't be dissin' me lads!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Geoff Blum is still in baseball?

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...Ackbar...

http://twitpic.com/2nkzlj

rbnlaw said...

1/2 hour to UCLA football!1

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Chelsea is an embarrassment of riches.

I hate them.

Almost as much as Spurs.

Fred's Brim said...

@RB - I work with a guy named Rocky Patel. His real name is Rakesh

Dusty Baker said...

No, RBN, Man CIty is an embarrassment of riches.

Fred's Brim said...

"you're too stupid to have fun"

Road House starting now on VH1

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, HLACK

rbnlaw said...

FB,
Get me some of his seegars.

DB,
Man City is just an embarrassment.

WTF??? DODGERS WIN 2 IN A ROW???

STOOPID TORRE. WITHOUT HIM, DODGERS WIN 10 IN A ROW!!!!11!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

ROAD GOD DAMNED HOUSE!

I thought you'd be bigger, Spanky.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JANSEN GETS HIS FIRST WIN HOORAY FOR MEANINGLESS STATS

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now I get to watch USC.

Fred's Brim said...

RIP Jeff Healey

Dusty Baker said...

I will go temporarily blind tonight in honour of my boy Jeff Healey. *throws empty at a caged stage*

NicJ said...

Wow, LaMichael James with a 72 yard rush.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB blind drunk I presume?
Everclear, a la Bushwick Bill, might help with that

Fred's Brim said...

@DB blind drunk I presume?
Everclear, a la Bushwick Bill, might help with that

Fred's Brim said...

what the fuck is Doritos Late Night Cheeseburger?

NicJ said...

a flavor of chip.

it tastes a little like a mcdonalds cheeseburger.

NicJ said...

anyone remember taco supreme doritos? I miss those.

Fred's Brim said...

crazy. I am glad american chip companies are starting to work on new chip flavors instead of just repackaging the same 5 flavors in different shapes and textures

Josh S. said...

@MLASF 6:05

Sherrill is also the commissioner of the Dodgers' fantasy football league, so you guys have something in common.

Fred's Brim said...

Jackie Treehorn!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Don't make me like him.

NicJ said...

oh fuck do i have to listen to petros?

nooooooooooooo

Dusty Baker said...

How does a brotha pull in some USC action off the internets right now?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Justin.tv usually has college games.

NicJ said...

haha, USC band added "all i do is win" to their playlist.

nice

Fred's Brim said...

@DB you're in ACC country, right? No local TV for that?

NicJ said...

atdhe.net has listings of the justin.tv feeds.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This isn't a good start.

NicJ said...

meh, its virginia.

NicJ said...

Fox PT has a rather bold yellow first down line.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They'll need a turnover to prevent Virginia from scoring.

NicJ said...

or a crappy kicker.

Fred's Brim said...

ray ray, UVa

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You could just tell he wouldn't hit the FG.

NicJ said...

the new pac10 logo looks weird.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good field position for SC. No excuses for not scoring on this drive.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Don't worry Nic, it'll be gone in two years.

NicJ said...

@MLASF, im sure steve mason will have PLENTY of excuses.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Tyler got a generous push.

NicJ said...

welp, there you go.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Aw dammit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't know why they keep running fake handoffs on the first down.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

These kids still haven't gotten the hang of the Tampa 2 yet.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCK YEAH INTERCEPTION

NicJ said...

BRETT FAVRE!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Last I checked Tyler was a pretty good runner. They might want to go with him to start the first down.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit, the one time they give Tyler the ball and he does nothing.

NicJ said...

two times and he did even less.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lot of luck in this first quarter.

Fred's Brim said...

pain don't hurt

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

UV has a terrible O-line.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

I have Stan v UCLA on the telly and pirate USC feed (thx to MLASF and Nic) on the 'puter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

More good field position.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB If you are in DC, I figured they'd have UVa showing there. Maybe they are too depressed after the VaTech poopfest

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sucks for Baxter.

Fred's Brim said...

and I think we need to stay as Bushwick Bill, at least through tomorrow.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nice penalty.

NicJ said...

pass interference?

uhhhh, ill take it.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

No, in ORL, Florida.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They're going for it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stoopid penalties.
