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.

Clean-up? Better bring my big-boy pants.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You're our Mike Piazza, Mr C. Only without the heart-wrenching trade.

Mr. Customer said...

Wish I had the 'stache for it.

rbnlaw said...

Fuck! Benched? WTF????
I'm telling Dave Stewart about this. He's gonna be pissed.

Be ready for a strongly worded memo, MLASF.

Josh S. said...

Is Dusty going to be a late scratch again?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

But Dusty has so much more grit, Rbn!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Mitchell in left, huh? That should be...uh, interesting.

Spanky said...

SPANKYWOOD!

rbnlaw said...

@MLASF:
Bite my WAR!!!

Mr. Customer said...

OK, ladies and gents. I'm pulling the rip cord. I'll see you on the fun side of the commute.

Dusty Baker said...

Uh-oh. Lotta pressure here. *practices slap bunts*

Neeebs said...

@RBN:

That's alright. I'm right here next to you.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

I think I'm reading that the wrong way.

Dusty Baker said...

Shards with the early 1-0 lead over Pod Rays.

Dusty Baker said...

Classy crowd for Ryan Ludwick's return. Standing O, even from the Shards dugout.

Dusty Baker said...

I hope Spanky starts a fight with Uribe tonight.

MR. F said...

Yay hitting #3! And playing 3rd base.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

karina said...

I love that I'm hitting 5th.Thanks Mr LASF!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We need someone to protect Mr C. He keeps swinging at those sliders down and away.

MR. F said...

Epale, Karina.

Dusty Baker said...

I recommend a shock collar for Mr C. Swing at a bad pitch, get some volts.

Mr. Customer said...

You're not the first to suggest such measures, Dusty.

Welcome back to the Best Coast.

Dusty Baker said...

Per D Hernandez:

Peter O'Malley says Frank McCourt needs to sell the #Dodgers: http://tinyurl.com/259k38f

Spanky said...

Just got a call from Selig saying I tested positive for M.E.D.'s (male enhancement drugs). Got the O.K. to play a doubleheader tonight.

Let's Play Two!


I see Waldo is back.

karina said...

Don't worry, Mr LASF.I'm gonna do my best!

Dusty, Mr C doesn't need a shook collar, I'll keep him in line :)

Spanky said...

Trying to figure out who the
LHWG's are in the line-up.

(looks at the top of the order)

MR. F said...

Not me! I'm not white.

Spanky said...

Your teddy is.

karina said...

@Steve Sax ah! those are lilypads! in Spanish it is nenúfares. My new word today.

when you choose art for GTs, you always choose stuff I love :)

Spanky said...

I'm not sold on NicJ as pitcher. He's inconsistent in the early innings then tends to get rattled and give up the long ball. Plus he has no k in his name.

Dusty Baker said...

Back on the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Pod Rays down 4-0 in the 6th.

Spanky said...

Strong words from O'Malley

Mr. Customer said...

Go fuck yourself, San Diego!

Dusty Baker said...

You, too, Padres!

Spanky said...

Yah! What they said

Spanky said...

Wassup Dusty! Fight any Crocs in FLORIDA

Paul said...

Since that is the Dodgers lineup I am considering it a compliment that I am not starting. I think I am hitting 2 for the Phillies.

But probably in the pen with the other degenerates.

Mr. Customer said...

Raffy lives!

Mr. Customer said...

That's good!

Spanky said...

GIANTS SUCK! GIANTS SUCK!

Spanky said...

Typical KKEMP

karen said...

Epale Ladies and Gents!!

Looks like I'm benched tonite. I'm here if you need me, MLASF.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

No croc wrasslin'. Got the hell out of there as soon as I could. Hot and humid, lots of tourists, inflated prices, fake entertainment.

Spanky said...

Man I wish Chente was pitching. Last game against these fucks. I want to see Giant massacre.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You're in the 'pen, Karen.

Dusty Baker said...

Karen can pinch hit, too. Dan Haren-like.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fuck, how does a corpse get a three-bagger?

Dusty Baker said...

Red undies triple.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn Voodoo witchdoctors.

Spanky said...

@ Karen

You can be my defensive replacement. I tend to not hustle let alone stand erect by the late innings.

NicJ said...

all my "k's" are saved for the game, spanky.

Mr. Customer said...

Fukkity.

NicJ said...

what the fuck was that reed?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn you, Oyster Pubes.

Spanky said...

Fuck

NicJ said...

i hate this team.

im talking about the dodgers of course.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That certainly was a bizarre rout taken by Reed.

Mr. Customer said...

I thought you perscription took care of that, Spanks.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking Burrell.

Oh, he got out. But still.

Fucking Burrell.

NicJ said...

Teddy already blew the only run of support he is getting tonight.

karen said...

Mr. C -- I thought Spanky's pescription caused that

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

He looked safe.

Spanky said...

Fuck that shit I'm dying over here with gameday. Anyone with a link for the game online

Mr. Customer said...

@Karen

I meant the one from 7:30, not 7:33.

NicJ said...

maybe they should change their chant to "beat the AL pennant winner"

its a little wordy but "beat la" is getting too easy.

Josh S. said...

1 flukey run, eh? HOT STUFF!

Spanky said...

At least Lilly hit the ball unlike some people on the team

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny is just going on and on about the way we scored the run. Let it go, Vinny, let it go. We got it. Error caused it.

NicJ said...

how many other people in san francisco are sucking on a jolly rancher right now.


hayyyyooooooo!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No, Vin. Billingsley is not a good pitcher. He has no heart and does not know how to win meaningful games. Could you be anymore wrong?

NicJ said...

johnson is fucking us over.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If I were Torre I'd pull Johnson immediately. He can't field right.

Spanky said...

Aw Shit

Mr. Customer said...

Shee-it.

NicJ said...

can we at least start trying to injury people?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And that's your ballgame, folks.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why the fuck was Karina not in right like I intended? Stoopid Torre.

Mr. Customer said...

Egad, we suck.

karen said...

I want to get into bed and pull the covers over my head

Spanky said...

Looks like Johnson can't hold his own

NicJ said...

i love how Ken Levine at the start of this series kept saying the giants and dodgers always broke one anothers hearts.

No, ken this team just sucks.

Spanky said...

FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NicJ said...

what else is on?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm watching last season's Fringe finale now.

NicJ said...

boy, i sure wish we can bring this dude back next year.

Spanky said...

Jesus H. WTF is going on man

Mr. Customer said...

Gameday will have to suffice from here on out. The clinical descriptions of our suckitude is comforting.

Spanky said...

Should have never put NicJ out there. Where are the K's Fool.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Where's the phone for the bullpen? Karen, you're in!

Paul said...

I love how I shell out big money for extra innings and I am in the Giants market but I somehow don't get to see this game.


Not that I want to see this mess.

Fuckery I tell ya!!! Fuckery!!

Dusty Baker said...

Good thing we have the heart of our lineup coming up to get us back in the game.

Dusty Baker said...

I go to make an egg scramble breakfast and come back to this shitgasm?

(The game, not the GT)

rbnlaw said...

Most depressed man in baseball right now?

Ted Lilly's agent.

rbnlaw said...

And I am available to PH, although leaving Neeebs' side will be a little difficult.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@rbn - what's this about Dave Stewart telling Plaschke that you want a trade? I'm so pissed I could go on a radio show and point out your declining defense and baserunning ability!

Mr. Customer said...

Erm, subject-verb agreement is my friend.

Josh S. said...

WHA HOPPEN?!

NicJ said...

instead of watching this i think i am going to write a thank you letter to Dr. Jerry Buss.

Spanky said...

I can't wait to see Loney in a Blue Jay uniform.

Dusty Baker said...

This is just hard to watch. The guys don't even seem to be trying. Just swinging for fences in case they make contact. Crowd taunting them...

It huuuuuuuuuurts.

Spanky said...

Change The Channel!

Change The Channel!

Paul said...

Maybe I am the bench coach.....

In that case this team is not going to be good for a long while....

See ya!!!

Spanky said...

Fuck It. Start beaning batters,No?

NicJ said...

i would say this team is a joke but this clearly isnt even funny anymore.

karen said...

This team has so much heart we'll be back in it in a jiff!!

*secretly cries*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Nic - So it's like a Jay Leno joke then?

Dusty Baker said...

Did he Jeter that?

NicJ said...

YEAH BREAK HIS FUCKING HAND!!!!

Josh S. said...

Gonna catch up on Burn Notice instead.

Or just burn things.

NicJ said...

this team is becoming unlikeable.
They arent even trying against the giants.

karen said...

At least he hit Sanchez before Torre pulled him

Paul said...

Makes the 07 team look like world beaters.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Has John Ely even pitched this month? He could use some innings. Link too.

NicJ said...

Lilly was giving up too many HR's so naturally they pull him and put in Tron.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, Troncoso. Right. That will make everything better.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT

Spanky said...

My Fish and Chips are looking better than the Dodgers and putting out an effort to impress me.

Dusty Baker said...

Are you still on the pyro tip these days, Josh?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Seriously, I'm worried about Ely and Link. GET THEM IN THE FUCKING GAME.

Spanky said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I wouldn't care so much if it weren't the fucking Giants.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Too bad the Angels lost. If they had won, our loss would let us leapfrog them in the reverse standings.

NicJ said...

this is the last game i will care about this year.

karen said...

I think it's gotten to where watching Dodger baseball isn't very healthy for me

Paul said...

I am worried about Rbn. He needs some at bats!!

Spanky said...

I am ready to go all Ron Artest at the crowd in left field with a Chardonnay bottle as a weapon

NicJ said...

OH YEAH WE ARE COMING BACK MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!

NicJ said...

Burrell doesnt even know the rules.

STOOPID!!

Josh S. said...

Ely started on Saturday, no?

Dusty Baker said...

My god Reed Johnson looked like a fucking moron in that AB. It looked like he closed his eyes and swung as hard as possible.

NicJ said...

@DB, he has been taking some pointers from kemp.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh yeah, he did. But it's been four days. GET HIM IN THE GAME.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least Russ Mitchell doesn't have to be compared to Chin Feng-Chen by Jon Weisman anymore.

Dusty Baker said...

Can Ely plunk a batter on 4 days' rest?

NicJ said...

ely doesnt throw hard enough.

get jansen out there.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Holy shit, Hu got a hit.

Dusty Baker said...

Hu did what?

NicJ said...

Hu Hit?

Spanky said...

CHIN-LUNG HU IS THE FUTURE OF THE ORGANIZATION

NicJ said...

i really hate burrell.

Dusty Baker said...

JEFF WEAVER IS THE....aw, forget it.

NicJ said...

future of a beer league softball game?

Paul said...

I am never getting my nacho bell grande.

Fred's Brim said...

Starting at first? Excellent!
I've always thought I could have been a good first baseman, except I bat and throw right handed.

NicJ said...

start throwing at people. Who the fuck cares if we look like poor sports.

Spanky said...

(jumps in the crowd, punches fan, drinks his beer then macks on his chic)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@FB - So does Pujols!

NicJ said...

i really hate the first place giants.

Spanky said...

LAKERS! LAKERS! LAKERS!

Dusty Baker said...

*follows Spanky into the crowd*

*slaps a granny's ass*

Paul said...

I want a twins-reds fall classic.

Cowherd would have a field day with those ratings.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I've already said I want Rangers/Padres.

NicJ said...

i would like a labor strike.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So any good football games this Sunday? I know the Chargers game is blacked out. Saints play on MNF.

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASF I'm gonna have to work on my thighs then. Get Billingsly's trainer on the phone!

Fred's Brim said...

@DB did that granny have 47 pins on her hat?

Paul said...

Padres? I wasn't thinking of non-playoff teams. Then Royals-Pirates!!!

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASF Bills - Packers. The Bills will take their next step towards 0-16

Spanky said...

Goddamn,KKemp thinks he's fucking Rob Deer

NicJ said...

The NFL continuing its blackout policy in this economy is laughable.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Blackouts only serve to alienate people from the NFL further. When a game is blacked out, I'm more liable to get really pissed than I am to actually buy a ticket.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

According to Dylan Hernandez, Kemp's latest K has him tied with his previous season high.

NicJ said...

he is still a great player though.

(cries)

Paul said...

Yeah I have neve heard of someone change their plans to attend a game cause a black out. It is a punitive business practice.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JOHN NOBLE IS THE FUTURE OF MY NIGHT

Fred's Brim said...

According to Dylan Hernandez, shaving is stoopid, even if your beard grows in funny

NicJ said...

the raiders had 7 blackouts last year?

i thought they had great fans?

Spanky said...

Seeing Flat Breezys' pic pop up on gameday put me in hysterics. It's like a punchline. Bam there it is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I have confirmed that Jon Link has yet to pitch since being called up this month.

Tragic.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wasn't almost every Jags game blacked out?

They definitely belong in LA.

Fred's Brim said...

what is Breezy's status after this season? Is he free to get kicked the eff out the door?

Josh S. said...

I'm glad Joe is making these bullpen moves. I don't want the game to get out of hand.

NicJ said...

well they better get here before MJD starts going downhill.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sherrill will likely be non-tendered.

NicJ said...

@FB, one more year of arb. probably a non tender this year.

Fred's Brim said...

Jags or Bills. I hope it's not the Bills but their ownership situation will get bad very soon and may need to go somewhere else. And Toronto is not the answer either

NicJ said...

and then he will be signed by the red sox and become an all start closer once again.

Fred's Brim said...

Pubes plays the nice guy with the mercy K

NicJ said...

@FB, i think the bills are pretty committed to staying there.

Fred's Brim said...

Sox or Braves

NicJ said...

even though they are horrible the bills still have a pretty strong fanbase over there.

Jville is a ghost town.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bills aren't leaving. The fans are too committed to that team. Not so much with Jacksonville.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Great minds and all that.

Fred's Brim said...

the whole Toronto thing has me scared. Luckily the games there have been disasters

Spanky said...

Didn't the Jags tarp half their seats to avoid blackouts?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think the Toronto games are more of the NFL toying with the idea of pursuing more international markets.

I'll say this, if London gets an NFL team before LA, I'm gonna be pissed.

Josh S. said...

Marching and Chowder Society!

NicJ said...

@spanky, yeah they have been doing that for a few years. thats one way around the rule.

NicJ said...

i guess i have to start rooting for a team to sweep the giants out of the playoffs.

Or start rooting for the rockies, i really dont like them though.

Fred's Brim said...

The Bills' problem is Ralph Wilson. I don't know if the NFL can find a buyer that would keep them in town. Galisano won't do it and neither will Danny Wegman. Maybe Crazy Carl Paladino can find some cash after his campaign is over

Paul said...

Can we tarp this game?

NicJ said...

for what its worth FB, i just heard Jim Kelly saying he has a team complied that would be willing to step in to keep the Bills where they are.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I wonder if the Russert family would at least become a minority part of any new ownership bid.

Fred's Brim said...

Jim Kelly also said the Bills would win 27-17 last week :)

Actually that would be very cool

Fred's Brim said...

goddammit why do we have Octavio Fucking Dotel on this team?

Fred's Brim said...

we should have traded his ass before the August 31 deadline
