Game 149 Thread: Sept 18 vs. Rox, 1p

John Ely (4-7, 4.62) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (8-9, 3.53).

[Photo by Orel; words from Sax] Yes, the Dodgers may be playing the role of doormat for our NL West "rivals" (and I use that loosely given how pathetic we've been of late, against a division we usually dominate). But today, Sax heads to the Stadium with two five-year-olds in tow, ready to show them how the Dodgers have heart. Don't let the Rockies tread on me, Blue!

[Okay, these words are from Orel] Today's game is on tape delay on TV (4p), so don't check this thread if you want to avoid spoilers. Will the Dodgers mount a late-inning comeback? O, the suspense!

So WTF are we supposed to do to follow the game live? No video but we have radio and MLB GameDay, I guess?

Pathetic, MLB and FOX. God forbid you do something for the fans over the corporate interests.

*takes up pitchfork*

Dusty Baker said...

Will Kemp mount Loney?

karina said...

I'm getting the game live from Fox Sports Latin America

Here's a recap and some pics from my game experience last night:

Josh S. said...

So, it is on radio, yes?

Greg Zakwin said...

Josh, I would guess it is.

Greg Zakwin said...

Nice pics Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Cheers, Greg.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, we traded Dotel to the Rox. We got the best of that trade, regardless of what we get in return.

Josh S. said...

And it's a win for the Rockies too if they end up making the postseason, as he's ineligible to completely sink them there.

Dusty Baker said...

And it could possibly help Rox overcome Jints. Another plus.

Clearly Rox scouts have not seem him "pitch" lately.

Mr. Customer said...

Joke's on them.

karina said...

They blackek out the game in Latin America.

I'd wish I could say the current insult on my mind.

Dusty Baker said...

How very last night of us in the first inning.

Dusty Baker said...

JUST SAY IT, Karina!

Josh S. said...

Did you end up going to the Ravine after all, Mr. C?

Dusty Baker said...

I ended up on the sofa, Vinny!

karina said...

I said it, Dusty. Coper heard, but it's not like he's going to tell someone.

I'm quiet because I'm watching the Milan game.

karina said...

Ellis just had a lead off single.

karina said...

Dusty, I love your pics from last night. Lovely, though you had a serious face.

Dusty Baker said...

How's AC doing, K?

Dusty Baker said...

It's hard to believe me with a serious face, but your'e right. Next time Sax or Mr C does a PhotoShop face thingy over me, they will have to make it a serious not a smiley.

Neeebs said...

@Karina:

My Fox Sports Espanol is showing the Cardinal/Padre game.

But I do get Canal Caracol

Josh S. said...

Charley again going on about distracting shirtsleeves. Anyone know what he means?

Dusty Baker said...

Tulo again. WALK THAT MOTHER F'ER!

Better yet, HIT HIM!

Neeebs said...

FWIW: Tulo in Chilean slang means DICK.

Josh S. said...

That guy is good at baseball.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

Definitely, which is why I try to use the term as much as I can.

Not that I wouldn't want him on my team. But as long as he's not, he's a tulo.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, we're only down 6, have a listless offense full of LHWGs, and are already into our own bullpen. WE GOT THIS!

karina said...

@Neeebs I know, they promised the game last night it was on the schedule.

Fox people are tulos :(

(pardon my french but I'm pissed off)

Dusty Baker said...

"Troncoso's work is complete." - Steiner

Oh, indeed it is.

Dusty Baker said...

Is Ellis really our best hitter of the last few games? Wow.

*kicks dog*

karina said...

@Neeebs I have Canal Caracol and a Chilean channel but I never remember its name.

It's Bicentenario day in Chile today, congrats to the family! I read on Twitter it was a great celebration

karina said...

Ellis is hitting like his life depends on it.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

It's funny how you curse in ESP then ask for pardon of your FRA.

karina said...

Dusty, why did Frankie do to deserve a kick?


I just kissed Coper.

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo, go Blue!

Dusty Baker said...

"In to score is Ellis....nope, that was the third out..." - Steiner

*Drives to Chavez, kicks Steiner in the nads*

karina said...

Dusty, isn't it what people say in the US to apologize for cursing?

Fox people are mean, evil people.They just made me to curse again.

David said...

Can we please stop batting a guy 2nd when he has a .297 OPS in September?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Just kidding. The little fellow is sleeping right here next to me on the sofa.


The little fellow is sleeping right here
next to me <==something Mrs Eckstein says a lot

Neeebs said...

@Karina:

The girls are at the Chilean fest celebrating.

I'm at home finishing my atonement for the sins I committed and the sins that I WILL commit for the next year. I get it all out of the way at once.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

You are absolutely right re "Pardon my French" colloquialism. It's just funny when you peel away the layers of what it means.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

Atonement surely can't take that long for you. You're as pure as the driven snow.

Dusty Baker said...

MONASTERIOS IS THE FUTURE OF THE 6TH INNING!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Am I the only one watching the USC game?

karina said...

@Neeebs it's Yom Kippur day too, right?. It's a shame both days collided.

Neeebs said...

@DB:

*looks around to see if he's really talking to me*

Josh S. said...

Football? What's a football?

karina said...

Neeebs: I agree with Dusty, you belong to the pure and good brigade.

Josh S. said...

Says the guy with a Packers avatar.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, I see what you did there, Karina. That was RICH!

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

I'm with you on the USC game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Something tells me Neeebs doesn't pay much attention during the Kol Nidre.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SUCK IT, MYCHAL THOMPSON

Dusty Baker said...

As Bill Maher would say, enough with the Book of Old Jewish Fairy Tales.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hear we traded Go-t'hell. Wonderful. Neeebs and I aren't the only ones absolving sins today.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Dusty - Nobody mentioned the Producers or Spaceballs.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I didn't do anything :(

if it was funny to you, it was unintentional

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...Spaceballs.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

I thought you were doing something with your 2:56 comment. Maybe I read more into it than was intended.

Josh S. said...

Gonna take a nap. I have some house cleaning that needs putting off.

Neeebs said...

At MLASF:

I'm dyslexic. I thought I was suppose to see Nicole Kidre

karina said...

@Neeebs when and/or if you read this, I'm glad your girls could celebrate Bicentenario. We couldn't do that in Venezuela, our Bicentanario was in April.

karina said...

This game is beyond sad.

karina said...

^Bicentenario

karina said...

It's sad to see Gameday and the Crying Hawaiian face...I can't quit on the Dodgers

rbnlaw said...

Odelay all!

Kids won both of their soccer games by a 2-0 score, and rbnlaw III (daughter) scored both goals in her game; rbnlawIV (the boy), had another shutout for AC Brea. I'm having a beer and wishing I did not have to go to Irvine just to watch rbnlaw II (older daughter) play volleyball.
(note to karina, that's the one who used to attend St. Anthony HS, but now plays for Cypress HS).

And this, GAWD THE DODGERS SUCK SO BAD.

Neeebs said...

@Karina:

I'll pass on the good wishes.

karina said...

That's my boy CarGO!

karina said...

Rbnlaw, your kids rock!

David said...

This game has gone to crap fast.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Go Houston!

karina said...

My countryman Melvin Mora, the father of quintuplets, has just hit a grand slam.

I don't know if I have to cry or laugh

karina said...

You know what? I think we all are paying bad karma with this Dodgers season.

Neeebs said...

Pads up 3-2 top of 7th

karina said...

Go Brewers, go Pads!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Four years ago today, Jeff Kent hit a home run. Then J.D. Drew hit one. Then Russell Martin. Then Marlon Anderson. Nomar Garciaparra hit one an inning later.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

The crazy thing about 4+1 is thinking about Karina's son actually being able to hit a HR these days (even if healthy). My how times change.

karina said...

Mr LASF, I forgot about it.

those were the hood times, when we were happy and didn't know about we were

Dusty Baker said...

^ I started to be a real asshole and type #PEDs at the end of my above comment.

That would have just been assholish.

Dusty Baker said...

Ah, the hood times.

karina said...

^good

Dusty, great minds and all that

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

For a second, I thought Karina had gone gangsta.

karina said...

Morales, please don't ruin the great Venezuelan night at Chavez ravine

:_(

karina said...

me, gangsta? hahahahaha

I wish my boys in blue be dangerous again :(

Eric the Human said...

OMG- is that a football or baseball score?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

As if the Dodgers could get a safety.

karina said...

sadly, it's a baseball score.

for those who care, Mitchell just hit a 2 run homer.

Right now, Morales faces our best hitter *drum rolls*

AJ ELLIS

Eric the Human said...

I don't think AJ can decaslam and get us 10 runs though, we'd need to add more bases and runners.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The game rests on the stout shoulders of Chin-Lung Hu.

karina said...

he got a walk, David

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now it rests on the stout shoulders of Ryan Theriot.

Eric the Human said...

Anyone going to watch the game now? Just askin'... :D

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well, I would like to see the Russ Mitchell homer.

Dusty Baker said...

@Eric

I am known for sports masochism, but even I won't attempt to watch the tape delay of this shitgasm.

I'll ride the high of the Razorbacks win and pretend today never happened at Chavez Ravine.

karina said...

@Eric if I could, I would.

I hate Fox Sports Latino

Eric the Ice King said...

Yeah, I cleared out my 4pm-7pm time slot once I saw teh score...

karina said...

100!

karina said...

Orel and Sax were clairvoyant today: they predicted the Dodgers were going to be a doormat.

Eric the Ice King said...

So much for the spoiler role- we should field an all-AAA roster against the Pod Rays to insure the Gints have to look in their rearview mirror once in a while.

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly. We should have John Lindsey pitch.

Mr. Customer said...

Just got to a place of acceptable reception. My at-game report?

We blow.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

Reading through comments.

Yes, we were there. This game brought my home record to one game under 500. 3 games under overall.

Steve Sax said...

The Dodgers had about as much heart today as a chihuahua. Way to go, blue.

Only upside of the day was meeting my new favorite reserve level beer vendor, Margie. I'm sold.

MeanieBreanie said...

I'm late to the party but I see everyone is crying in their beer.

Dodger doormats? More like tied to the whipping post. That's my song for today. Allman Brothers - Whipping Post. "Good lord I feel like I'm dyin".

Dusty, great pics!

Steve Sax said...

New Scoreboard Watching post thread up!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty, let me add to everyone else by saying: great shots! Looked like a really fun time! You looked great!
