Game 147 Thread: Sept 16 @ Giants, 7p

Ted Lilly (8-10, 3.58) vs. Jonathan Sanchez (10-8, 3.29).

COMMENTS: Claude Monet had a beard that even Casey Blake would envy. But that isn't the reason why we've led this GameThread with one of his key impressionistic works. No, with only 16 games left for the season, this is one of few chances left for impending free agent and late 2010 gun-for-hire Ted Lilly to show his stuff.

In eight starts with the Dodgers, Lilly is 5-2 with an ERA+ of 115 (just north of his career average, and basically on pace with his first half of the season with the Cubs). So I'm guessing Lilly pads his resume with a nice outing tonight, winning the series for the Dodgers, whose bats will finally wake up in the rubber match to leave San Francisco reeling.

why am I getting mad about this team anymore?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why is Dotel more preferable than Link?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jon Link is the only reason why I care anymore. I don't even know why, it's such a trivial matter. I don't even like Link all that much.

NicJ said...

i pretty much stopped caring like two weeks ago. Stupid giants series pulled me back in though.

Fred's Brim said...

Friends was a terrible show

NicJ said...

stupid classy bochy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only one of the castmembers of Friends is attractive.


That David Schwimmer. Hoo boy.

Fred's Brim said...

I thought I stopped caring too, but seeing wackasses like Dotel and Theriot and Johnson out there makes me want to choke people

NicJ said...

theriot doesnt bother me. Blake dewitt clearly wasnt meant for 2B. It would have been nice to have him now that the beard has fallen off the face of the earth.

Oh well.

NicJ said...

Maybe DeJesus win the 2B job next year.

(cries)

NicJ said...

link is warming.

NicJ said...

at least the score being so lopsided has taken some of the enthusiasm out of the crowd.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck you MLB.tv, I know my subscription is running out! The season is almost over for chrissakes. You should offer me a deal to come back and watch this terrible team instead of threatening me that the price may go up for next season.
FUCK
YOU

Denied the right to talk smack at P.Ditty. STOOPID CHATROOM

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I guess it's just us three, huh. Everybody else wised up and left.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oops. Make that four.

Fred's Brim said...

they all left when I showed up. They could sense my orneryness

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We're all ornery whores today, FB.

Fred's Brim said...

who has a bigger future at this point: Turtle from Entourage or Russel Martin?

Fred's Brim said...

WHORNERY!!!@

Fred's Brim said...

I shouldn't be mad tonight. I am heading down for the Duke - Alabama game. I am hoping they keep them under 60

Spanky said...

Where's the game at? Duke

Fred's Brim said...

yeah. Biggest game Duke has had since Charlie Ward was at Florida State

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Are you an alumnus, FB?

Mr. Customer said...

There's plenty of ornery to go around. I passed on watching the rest of the beating.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, Link is pitching.

Fred's Brim said...

I am. We don't have much to get excited about football-wise so you have to take advantage of games like this

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Leonard Nimoy is such a badass.

Fred's Brim said...

and now it's time for me to bail. It is way too late for me to be up watching a 10-2 loss.
gnite everybody

NicJ said...

was that kemp on the field mic talking about his shoes?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And that's game. One of the more disappointing losses of the season just because it came at the hands of the Giants.

Mr. Customer said...

That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore -- The Smiths

Mr. Customer said...

Can we have the offseason yet?

NicJ said...

i think for fan appreciation night the dodgers should just cancel the game.

rbnlaw said...

I died a little tonight.

So did karina's optimism.

Josh S. said...

I had Dodger Talk on while I was driving around trying to get Luke to sleep. Ken Levine spewed one of the biggest pieces of misinformation I've ever heard:

"This is the first year since Ned Colletti took over that the Dodgers won't win at least 90 games."

Nope. Last year was the ONLY year they won at least 90.
2006: 88
2007: 82
2008: 84
2009: 95

I'd call him out on Twitter, but I'm just too damn tired.

Josh S. said...

If he meant 80, he may be right.
