Post-Game 158 Thread: Now Let's Watch The Other Guys

DODGERS 9, COLORADO 7 AND OUT

The Dodgers made sure Colorado skipper Jim Tracy got a full and complete winter vacation, eliminating the Rockies this evening with a late-game surge of four runs in the final three frames. This doesn't help Hiroki Kuroda's win-loss record; Kuroda goes 6.1 IP with 5 ER 1 BB and 6 Ks; but the late innings allowed James Loney to get his 10th HR of the season (a solo shot in the seventh), and then an opportunistic eighth inning plus Casey Blake's second HR of the evening sealed the victory for the good guys.

With the Rockies out, we can now focus on the NL West-leading Giants, who are beating up on a hapless Diamondbacks squad, 3-2 in the seventh; and the Padres, who are trying to rally from a 4-2 deficit against the pathetic Cubs at Petco Park.

Fresh thread!

Steve Sax said...

Padres had two on and none out in the bottom of the seventh. Nick Headley Ks and Chris Denorfia Ks, so they bring in Yorvit Torrealba to PH, and Torrealba Ks.

Nah, the Padres don't want this pennant at all. What a crushing blow if they cough this one up.

Devirginized!


OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Spanky said...

I gotta go be devious but I'll be back

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I miss those old Rangers uniforms with the pure red.

MeanieBreanie said...

Anyone but the Giants. I share your hate.

It's going to be a sleepless night. Whose going to have a drink with me or entertain me?

Mr. Customer said...

That would be me, MB.

Well, the drink part anyway. Whether I'm entertaining or not is subject to booth review.

Mr. Customer said...

Padres really don't want this thing.

Spanky said...

That Ramona Shelburne truly is one handsome lady

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C, I find you quite entertaining. I'll pour a fresh one for you.

MR. F said...

Also Karina re: British vs. American English.

British = pyjama
American = pajama

I learned that from reading the British edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Mr. Customer said...

That's good enough for me. The ruling on the field stands!

Orel said...

Hey, I like Ramona Shelburne!

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C - Just be gentle when we compete in fantasy football. Otherwise I will pull the challenge flag and that ruling will be subject to review ;-)

Steve Sax said...

Cubs just took a 5-2 lead in the eighth.

Giants just added a run to make it 4-2, but the Snakes have a man on second with 1 out in the eighth.

MeanieBreanie said...

Orel makes an appearance. Welcome!

Mr. Customer said...

I shall be on my best(-ish) behaviour, MB.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm torn between my raging hatred of Matt Stairs and my raging hatred of the Giants on the last play.

Orel said...

Hi MB, I apologize for being so out of it lately. Been watching too much WNBA, I guess.

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C, always the gentleman. Love it.

MeanieBreanie said...

Sax, thx for the update. Go Snakes!

rbnlaw said...

Go Braves!!

MeanieBreanie said...

Orel, there could be worse fates. Glad to have you back with us.

Spanky said...

HaHa! Petco"s crowd all yawning and pissed, Love that shit

Spanky said...

Why a Dodger fan and not an Astro or Ranger fan MB.

Mr. Customer said...

…Other than plain good sense?

el montanero said...

@spanky

calling it a "crowd" is generous. it's more of a quorum. and i'm sure more than half are cubs fans.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Kings game looks like a baseball score.

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C to the rescue.

Spank
Dodgers used to have a farm team in SA which is where I grew up. For whatever reason I have always been a Dodger fan. I lived in Dallas for many years and call myself a quasi Rangers fan although they were so bad for many years. Liking The Astro's is unthinkable unless you are from Houston. I've never known them as anything but the Lastro's.

Spanky said...

@ em

I didn't want to go there because our crowd does the same shit. HaHa

Spanky said...

FUCK THE PADRES!

KILL KILL KILL

DIE DIE DIE

Mr. Customer said...

Well, the misery of Pads fans is worth something.

el montanero said...

top of the 9th...come on d-bags! make it a perfect night.

Spanky said...

Hedley

Steve Sax said...

frickin padres

Mr. Customer said...

You suck, Wilson!

MR. F said...

Stupid giants.

Mr. Customer said...

Goddamn D-Backs.

el montanero said...

a-hole brian wilson and his stupid beard. it doesn't even look intimidating you ass! it just looks weird...like you're gonna rob a bank. leave it to bloody frisco to end my good night on a sour note.

Spanky said...

I'm going to walk to the store with the neighborhood dogs and get me another beer.

Ciao Fools

Bye Mi Amor

Mr. Customer said...

*sips Laphroiag to even things out*

rbnlaw said...

I hate the top of the NL West so much.
The Pods are clueless and burning out their young arms. The Gnats are just insufferable with their cold weather, Chardonnay, and foix gras.

Let them all fail.

NicJ said...

Brian Wilson has beard fit for Castro (district)

Orel said...

Glenfiddich 15 w/ice here

Orel said...

...or should I say, on the Rox

MeanieBreanie said...

16 year old Glenlivet Nadurra here.

Josh S. said...

Mathematically, the Giants and Padres could end the season tied. I hope that happens, and I hope the one game playoff goes 30 innings.

Mr. Customer said...

Rooting for the Reds, Rangers, and Rays in the postseason feels unnatural.

Josh S. said...

I'll root for the Twins because I enjoy shopping at Target.

MeanieBreanie said...

I'll go for the Rangers since they are from the Great Lone Star state. I would love to see them crush the Yankees.

Mr. Customer said...

The Twins are also acceptable. I'll take the Braves, too, but only in a pinch. To many years of getting beaten up one side and down the other by those cats.

Mr. Customer said...

^too

MeanieBreanie said...

Oh, and in the NL anyone but the Giants.

el montanero said...

i second that on the twinkies. i used to enjoy watching kirby puckett play and they've only ever lost to the dodgers in the world series. i say go twin cities!

el montanero said...

screw 10th inning...there's a documentary on the 1955 world series on kcet!

MeanieBreanie said...

It's a bit later here than in Cali. I think I will retire to the comfort of my bed to toss and turn. May everyone have sweet dreams and a pleasant tomorrow. G'nite all.

Orel said...

Sleep tight!

MR. F said...

Don't let the bed bugs bite.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn bed bugs, making a comeback. How I loathe them.

By bed bugs, I mean the Giants of course.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey that's a good nickname for the Giants. Nobody gets it but me!

Spanky said...

I saw the big ass Laker banner in the front of the store I frequent and a rush of blood came over me.



FUCK THE HEAT!!

Orel said...

Poor choice of parasite, sorry.

Steve Sax said...

Another poor choice of parasite.

Steve Sax said...

Can't believe no one mentioned the PGT picture. I drove all the way to Ohio for that shot.

MR. F said...

That's a great picture there, Sax.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, the Red Sox municipality was eliminated tonight!

Steve Sax said...

Only Mr F noticed my picture.

(cries)

Josh S. said...

A naked guy just ran by my window, carrying a sharktopus.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S: that's weird. My sharktopus was carrying a naked guy by my window. What are the chances?

Neeebs said...

Reading the PGT the next morning is a most humerous way to start the day.

Favorite line: "Caio Fools, Bye Mi Amor."
