Scoreboard Watching: NL West Games of Note (Sept 29)

The Padres are two back of the Giants in the NL West, with five games left to play, and they send recently-returned-from-the-DL Chris Young (1-0, 1.20) vs. Randy Wells (8-13, 4.28). Good luck with that.

The Giants on the other hand send Timmah Lincecum (15-10, 3.51) against Ian Kennedy (9-9, 3.76). San Francisco plays all of the rest of its games at home, including the season-ending series against the Padres.

(cries)

UPDATE 7:24p: Mr F graded me poorly on this Scoreboard Watching post because I didn't mention the Padres play the Cubs and the Giants play the Snakes. I suppose he has a point.

Mr. Customer said...

How we doin', boys and girls?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Mr C - Well, as you can see from the above post, Sax is crying a lot.

Mr. Customer said...

It happens

MR. F said...

It's okay Sax. Like Dodgers games these days, grades don't matter!

Fred's Brim said...

Saxy's been watching the end of Field of Dreams on a loop

Fred's Brim said...

Bruce Bochy, wash your nose hair!

Fred's Brim said...

I can see Brandon Allen hitting big homers against us next year

Fred's Brim said...

Matt Williams can go to hell

Timmeh getting his salami squeezed by Mike Reilly

Fred's Brim said...

Snizakes have something cooking, first and third, 1 out

karina said...

OT @Fred's Brim today I realized your Manny loves Jay!

I know you understand.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Aw. I was enjoying the FB show.

Fred's Brim said...

@Karina - and Jay loves Manny, but he has a funny way of showing it sometimes :)

Dusty Baker said...

Has Timmeh washed his hair yet?

Fred's Brim said...

was Ian Kennedy one of the stiffs that came over in the EJax trade?

Fred's Brim said...

Timmeh will single-handedly cure cancer before he washes that mono-dred he calls his hair

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@FB - Yes

Fred's Brim said...

Edgar Renteria backing away from the pressure yet again

Fred's Brim said...

imagine how terrible Uribe would be if he was a Dodger. Ach i would hate him so much

Mr. Customer said...

Pads on the board.

Fred's Brim said...

pants on the ground

Dusty Baker said...

Lookin like a fool with your pants on tha ground!

Fred's Brim said...

that was not a Steve Lyons reference

Mr. Customer said...

…or was it?

Dusty Baker said...

Don't look now but there's a hideous picture of Timmeh on the MLB.com site's top story.

Fred's Brim said...

I heard that Timmy is enrolled at Chico State for the spring semester

Dusty Baker said...

Looking at fantasy football for upcoming weekend. MLASF has Peyton Hillis against my D-Mac. I'm totally split on this one...I rock a D-Mac Razorback jersey on Saturdays when my beloved Hawgs play, but on the other hand Hillis is a fellow alum from my Conway High School Wampus Cats. What's a girl to do??? *clutches pearls*

Dusty Baker said...

"enrolled at Chico State" = 4:20, no?

Fred's Brim said...

*Googles Wampus Cats*

holy jebus that's terrifying

Fred's Brim said...

DB, do you know this guy?

Fred's Brim said...

yeah, just playing on the reputation of the school

Fred's Brim said...

and the Timmeh

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Wait, which guy? Link was just for an entire assortment of Conway stuff. For the record, I went to Hendrix College there, not that baptist shite.

Dusty Baker said...

That six-legged swamp cat thing is some chilling shit.

*take that, Little Rock Catholic High*

Dusty Baker said...

Pod Rays 2-nil - bottom 4th

Fred's Brim said...

hmm i thought I saw the blog owner on there - nevermind.

Fred's Brim said...

we were the spartans and our colors were yellow and purple - that was chilling shit too, in a completely different way

i want to see a real wampus cat. I suppose it's extinct like the pileated woodpecker

Fred's Brim said...

sheeit i gotta git to gittin to bed
gnite yall

MR. F said...

Pat Burrell is a disgrace to the Patricks of the world.

karina said...

One of the reasons Burrell exists, is to torture Dodgers fans.

Mr. Customer said...

Racking Burrell.

Hate you!

Mr. Customer said...

Facking, that is. Misspelling intentional misspellings is quite a talent.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Racking tipos.

Josh S. said...

Tipos arr a reel motherracker.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jon Miller just called OPS "awps."

I hate Jon Miller.

rbnlaw said...

knofed in the robs.

Go Argonauts of GGHS.

MR. F said...

I don't have high school pride =(.

MR. F said...

I'm watching the Dodger game. Matt Kemp just missed a play in the outfield in the bottom of the 2nd inning.

Mr. Customer said...

At least it gets better Mr. F!

Josh S. said...

Yay Pods, I guess.

MR. F said...

I'm looking forward to it!

MR. F said...

Stupid D-bags can't beat the stupider giants.

Mr. Customer said...

Balls.

Steve Sax said...

The Padres won, 3-0. That's good.

The Giants are winning, 3-1. That's bad.

MR. F said...

Oh well. Kemp is about to hit his grand slam!

Mr. Customer said...

The tiebreaker is off the table, then.

Steve Sax said...

scratch that, the giants won.

two game lead with four to play, each

Steve Sax said...

tiebreaker could still be on the table, right?

giants win and padres lose tomorrow
then padres sweep

we're all even, right?

Josh S. said...

Tiebreaker is still on the table. It requires a Giants win and a Padres loss tomorrow, followed by a Padres sweep in SF.

Josh S. said...

I type slower than Sax.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Dodgers get their little bit of light in the 10th inning: Manny, in a long list of players tainted by PED use.

What saddens me more than anything else that the Dodgers have been so unimportant in the last 16 years.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

*else is that

Mr. Customer said...

You're right, I forgot they were both playing tomorrow. No travel day.

Josh S. said...

Just caught a little bit of the Tenth Inning.

Man, looking back, the Bartman thing was seriously overblown. He didn't give up 8 runs.

MR. F said...

Nice avatar, MR.LASF.

Josh S. said...

In fact, I'd go so far as to say that our own King James Loney did greater damage to the Cubs' World Series hopes than Bartman ever did.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The real crusher was Alou's reaction which drew attention to Bartman in the first place. I think none of the this stuff happens if Moises doesn't get so damn pissed.

Steve Sax said...

Josh S: Agreed. KJL stepped on their throat in 2008 Game 1.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAMN YOU TO HELL, EXTRANEOUS "THE"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BOBBY'S ON LOLA!!!!!

@MLASF: It took me a little bit, but I finally deciphered that comment.

Fred's Brim said...

Pat
Fucking
Burrell

I said this earlier about Juan Uribe but it goes double for Pat Fucking Burrell: imagine how terrible he would be if he was a Dodger. He would suck something fierce. Like Juan Encarnacion-as-a-Dodger terrible
