Game 155 Thread: Sept 25 @ D'backs, 5p

John Ely (4-8, 5.00) vs. Daniel Hudson (6-1, 1.65).

COMMENTS: In the past two days, the Dodgers have posted dominating wins over fifty percent of their division rivals. In the past two days, Kuroda & Kuo & Kershaw & Kenley have been at the top of their game. In the past two days, we got a taste of the 2008 & 2009 Dodgers.

In the past two days, Frank & Jamie McCourt continued to beat each other senseless in court. In the past two days, the first-place Giants outscored their opponents 15-1. In the past two days, not much has changed. Including my inability to think of new Game Thread topics.

Are we dead yet? Time for a drink!

Two alcohol-free days per week? What kind of blasphemy is this?

Mr. Customer said...

What's the sign for "hit him in the neck", skip?

Josh S. said...

I'll let someone else post the lineup, but it's essentially Andre and the Topes. (Featuring Ryan Theriot and Reed Johnson.)

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

Anytime after sunset is OK, though, right?

Greg Zakwin said...

Oeltjen-CF
Theriot-2B
Ethier-RF
Lindsey-1B
Mitchell-3B
Johnson-LF
Ellis-C
Hu-SS
Ely-P

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm in left? Prepare to see exploits that make Jay Gibbons look like Carl Crawford.

Orel said...

I get to collect shinguards!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

But what's your caption?

rbnlaw said...

Mr. C:
nose-ear-chin-nose-middlefinger.

If I go ear-nose-chin-nose-mf, the pitch goes in his ribs.

Spanky said...

Where's the fucking Tylenol?

*goes back into coma*

rbnlaw said...

DAMMIT!
I'm gonna need a catcher. Spanky is too hungover to go.

Someone go get Booger.

karen said...

Greetings Boys and Girls!!

@rbn--I'm ready to go Skip, call my number anytime!

karen said...

Let's hope for a little Elymania magic tonite

rbnlaw said...

@karen,
If I had a nickel for every time I heard that form girls when I was younger.

Ely starts solid, ends up shaky in the first.

A lot like jello.

rbnlaw said...

BTW, I put the two Razorbacks at the top of the order hoping for upset magic. Unfortunately, the Tide overtook that idea.

#gobruins.

rbnlaw said...

^from.

karen said...

Yay Rox! Beat up on those orange and black bastards!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What were the Dodgers thinking, giving up Tony Abreu for Jon Garland?

rbnlaw said...

@MLASF
From your lips to God's ears.

OSU and Boise State all tied up at 7.

Did I mention THE BRUINS WENT TO AUSTIN AND STOMPED THE HORNS today?

I love my Horns, but the Bruins are my first team.

Spanky said...

A quick beer I.V. and I'm back behind the plate.

@ Mr.C

When I grab my crotch*,nail them in the cabeza

*Michael Jackson styles

rbnlaw said...

I may regret saying this later, but I think BSU is overrated.

rbnlaw said...

Thank gawd, I got my own battletoad back.

La Roche gets one in the ribs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Thunder down under!

Spanky said...

That blue field is going to make me puke

Spanky said...

We scored!

Let's make party

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That smurf turf is really distracting.

rbnlaw said...

I may be taking the overrated comment back sooner than I thought.

BSU is dominating.

Josh S. said...

Epale y'all!

karen said...

Epale Josh!

rbnlaw said...

"Another myth is that, mistaking the blue field for a large body of water, birds have flown into the blue turf and to their deaths. Although Broncos coach Chris Petersen claimed to have found a dead duck on the field in 2007,[13] the origin of the duck on the field has never been confirmed."

I thought it was true. Huh.

karen said...

I really hate Stephen Drew

Spanky said...

Hu?

Spanky said...

I called for a beanball DAMMIT

MR. F said...

D'oh.

karen said...

So much for the Elymania magic I was hoping for.

Josh S. said...

Who the hell is Cole Gillespie and why isn't he solving mysteries in the Bayou?

MR. F said...

I should come up with my own salutation when I show up to game threads.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sweet, we're losing. Suck it, Mets!

Josh S. said...

Three more losses will clinch a losing season.

karen said...

Can we make party if the Rox beat the jints??

Josh S. said...

Heck, I'm not picky. We can make party if the Twins beat the Tigers. Or vice versa even!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wisconsin beats Austin Peay! Make party!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We just have to face the fact that we root for a terrible baseball team.

Spanky said...

Beanball mang, throw a Beanball

Spanky said...

RANCHO WHOGIVESAFUCKIENDO

Mr. Customer said...

Wow, we kinda suck.

karen said...

@MLASF--Fact faced. We love a terrible team with somewhat questionable heart at times.

Spanky said...

Did Vin say Mike Hampton? He still has an arm?

karen said...

@Spanky--Apparently he doesn't.

Spanky said...

If Mitchell comes through right now, I'll still hate the fuck

Spanky said...

HATE YOU

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SUCK IT, METS

Dusty Baker said...

WTF is this alcohol free theory that you speak of? I for one am appalled.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN 4.34pm

I think you mean the "robs" not the "ribs."

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

BTW, thanks for the Razorback love. Alas, it wasn't to be. I missed most of it as I was on a plane. We were way up when I landed, then as I started watching we let it slip away. Moral of the story: Flying west to east on American dictates positive Razorback mojo. Kimpton Hotel happy hour has the opposite effect.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And John Lindsey has a broken hand from a HBP.

Not our year, baby, not our year.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lindsey a broken hand? There clearly is no god.

el montanero said...

timmy and the jintz were apparently bitching about the humidor-treated baseballs during yesterday's game according to mlb.com. leading to a heated exchange between rox and jint fans. my favorite barb thrown has to be from jint fan Hardball510.

"@rcringer, how do you know it's impossible? Is the camera on the balls the whole time? ARe you the bat boy? YOU DON"T KNOW unless you personally handle the balls!"

indeed. suck on that, mr. rcringer!

Paul said...

Giants fans know a lot about balls.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Especially Timmeh.

Steve Sax said...

Giants fans are obsessed with handling balls.
