NLCS Game 2 Thread: Giants @ Phillies, 5p

Jonathan Sanchez (0-0, 1.23) vs. Roy Oswalt (0-0, 5.40).

COMMENTS: Are you kidding me? Former Dodger Cody Ross takes Mr. No-No deep not once, but twice? Former Dodger Jayson Werth's two-run homer isn't enough to beat the (formerly) punchless Giants? Blackbeard gets a four-out save? It's only one game, but the Giants killed the Dodger-killers yesterday.

Dodger fans, already reeling from the team's first losing season in five years — as well as the McCourt divorce tango — are now dealing with the prospect of the arch-rival Giants doing what the Dodgers couldn't do the past two years: beat the Phillies in the NLCS.

BUT like I said, it's only one game. The Phillies can restore sanity tonight. The alternative is too gruesome to contemplate.

"Just For Men" keeps Brian Wilson's edge.

The beard is weird.

Josh S. said...

The beard is made of 100% genuine oyster pubes.

Kyle Baker said...

Don't miss my last comment on the Ted Thread earlier, Josh.

[Not to be confused with the TED Spread. #MonetaryComment]

Josh S. said...

I did see your comment. I opted for culottes instead.

Kyle Baker said...

Did COwboys really just run two plays up the middle on long yardage from their own 2?

Cliff Beefpile said...

we're doomed. fuckin' frillies are acting like they believe their own hype. better pull their heads out of their asses soon. hate to say they're reminding me of the '88 mets.

I want to slap that fucking shit-eating grin off McCarver's face.

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2010/10/15/TRBP1E39VS.DTL

this article wraps up very neatly why i would never life in s.f. it's this twat's attitude that makes it unbearable.

MeanieBreanie said...

And I would like to slap Joe Buck! Epale Y'all

karen said...

Hello Everyone!!

Epale MB!

I used to be a Joe Buck fan until the Dodger/Yankee game he and McCarver called this season. I not only want to slap him, I want to kick his girly ass.

Kyle Baker said...

Karen's got the Hate flowing early on.

If the Hate is against SF, do we have to spell it "Haight"?

MeanieBreanie said...

Hi Karen!
The first time I saw Joe Buck I thought he was easy on the eyes and then he opened his mouth. All illusions were instantly shattered.

MeanieBreanie said...

DB - Hate is flowing. WTF is with the commercials hyping the fact that Phiwy needs to come back with the strains of Dream On in the background?

I've been drinking Spanky's Haterade and with the Cowboys shitty play my hate and surliness is at an all time high.

*pulls out paper bag from past seasons

spank said...

HATE

karen said...

I hope we don't have to listen to Buck and McCarver slobber all over Buster Posey again. Were they ass kissing the gnats in general yesterday or was it just my Hate biased ears?

Kyle Baker said...

Cowboys game was a mother f'er. If I wanted to watch that many penalties I'd watch the Raiders.

MeanieBreanie said...

Karen
I didn't see the game but I don't have to. Joe Buck is indeed an ass kisser.

Kyle Baker said...

Beer status:

2009 Anchor Xmas that I found in the back of MDIL's fridge.

MeanieBreanie said...

^I didn't need to (grammar correction)

spank said...

The Cowboys lost? The HATE overwhelmed me yesterday and it somehow blocked those assholes out.

Kyle Baker said...

^ dat ass (slang correction)

MeanieBreanie said...

Is Hamels pitching tonight?

Kyle Baker said...

That fucking fat fucking fuck Uribe is out Out OUT with a bruised hand. He must have spent all night alone with it.

spank said...

fuckFuckfuckingFUCK

spank said...

Oswalt no?

spank said...

It's all about the hair

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Buck is a nonfactor to me since the Yankees aren't playing. It's McCarver who really ticks me off.

Cliff Beefpile said...

joe buck is a nipple. mccarver needs to be punched in the face.

Josh S. said...

Beer and Loathing in Los Angeles

(By way of Venezuela, Texas, etc.)

karen said...

MB--I think it's Oswalt

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Josh
Congrats on Luke walking. Your life will never be the same :~)

Josh S. said...

Damn, I hope Uribe heals up, since he's our 2nd baseman next year.

Kyle Baker said...

Ahhhh, the jingoism. Start the friggin game!

Josh S. said...

Epale, MB!

Thanks. I consider it an excuse to finally get in shape.

Cliff Beefpile said...

MSTI has done lost his damn mind. i'll stick with MST3K.

Kyle Baker said...

Say it all all together now: SAN-chez not San-CHEZ!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I like a lot of what MSTI said, but not the Uribe part. I don't care if he can hit for power, I want a bench SS who can field and be a competent late inning replacement.

spank said...

Bye Bye Sucker

spank said...

Rosenthal is a gremlin

NicJ said...

HATE HATE HATE

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was an acey inning from Roy Oswalt. Really top notch stuff.

spank said...

FUCK PHILI

Kyle Baker said...

Hell yeah Chase fuckin Utley! Dodger fan for life. Pasadena, represent!!!!

Kyle Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Does Tim McCarver know what a "pretty good throw" is? Because that throw sailed a few feet away from its intended target.

spank said...

Give McCarver a break. He has alzheimers and shit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't know about the Alzheimer's, but he certainly has shit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Where's your voodoo magic now, Huff? Where is it now!?!?!

spank said...

He looked like an Aubrey trying to field that throw.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Hello girls!

MeanieBreanie said...

Hey Karina, whassup?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey they can't wave those towels. That's cheating.

MeanieBreanie said...

Rancho Ardiendo of the good kind.

spank said...

Rancho Hateradeindo

karen said...

Epale Karina!!

Come over to the dark side with us and Hate up on these dumb ass gnats!!

karina said...

carrera de caballito!

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


I mean yay!

NicJ said...

HAHAHAHA

MeanieBreanie said...

I never thought I would say it but here goes "Whoo hoo Philly score".

Cliff Beefpile said...

the frillies score with werth and victorino striking out! the best of both worlds!!!

spank said...

FUCK YOU DUSTY

spank said...

Games over. You don't squander an opportunity like that in the playoffs and expect to win

NicJ said...

¡IbooooooooooƱez!

Cliff Beefpile said...

@spanky

unless you're playing an offensive juggernaut like the jints.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sanchez still hasn't allowed a hit.

spank said...

Tell that to Hallamutt EM

MeanieBreanie said...

What a catch!

Kyle Baker said...

This hurts, but: HELL YEAH, VICTORINO!

NicJ said...

burn in hell victorino!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This wind is a pox on the game, just like shadows.

spank said...

Too bad he did not break his collarbone

karina said...

what a shame, Ross almost got hit by pitch.

karen said...

I liked that high and tight pitch on freaking Cody Ross!

MeanieBreanie said...

Gints have some friggin ugly MOFO's on their team.

Kyle Baker said...

That ball was low, but I'll take it being called a strike.

karen said...

I'm loving you so far tonite Fontenot!!

Kyle Baker said...

NO APOSTROPHE! Are you trying to kill me?? ;-)

spank said...

Fonte-not

MeanieBreanie said...

Yes Dusty, it's a personal mission. Death by apostrophe's...hehe!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Giants pitchers' are really having a tough time dealing with the ump's strike zones the last two nights.

Nostradamus said...

Nice to know I'm not the only one who incurs Dusty's apostrophe wrath.

Evenin', all!

MeanieBreanie said...

Howdy Mr. C

NicJ said...

fuck the colts and their shitty run defense.

Kyle Baker said...

*hangs self*

Nostradamus said...

One-nil "good" guys. I'd like a few more for safety's sake

spank said...

Too easy for Torain

karen said...

Evenin' Mr.C

NicJ said...

alright well i just lost.

I think im just going to abandon my fantasy team

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Did you say "hang's self"?

MeanieBreanie said...

Nic
I'm creeping up on you!

Orel said...

Epale, y'all! Decent start so far, although leaving the sacks juiced has gotta sting.

MeanieBreanie said...

Nic, you haven't lost yet but it's close.

Josh S. said...

LOL at FOX showing Timmeh striking out GAARP to demonstrate how impressive the Jints pitching has been.

Kyle Baker said...

If I wanted to see this many commercials between plays, I'd watch NFL.

karen said...

Epale Orel!!

Kyle Baker said...

It's 69-69 between Spanky and me. In fantasy football.

MeanieBreanie said...

Cheers Orel! What's the beverage of choice tonight?

spank said...

Shaft Liquor

Orel said...

Fat Tire with leftover Chinese for dinner. Life is good.

NicJ said...

Oklahoma got the number 1 ranking in the BCS?!? Lame, who have they beaten?

spank said...

I am going to lose. Manning is throwing to everyone else but my guyz

spank said...

UJTD Fantasy Football styles

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ground rule double.

Apostrophe s.

Kyle Baker said...

Manning just threw a TD to one of your guys.

Cliff Beefpile said...

what the hell is wrong with you assholes! fuckin' hit!

MeanieBreanie said...

Lick it Sanchez.

spank said...

@ DB

I know. I had just posted that comment when it happened

Cliff Beefpile said...

howard! lame delay on gameday. i hate delay's.

spank said...

PHILI SUCKS

Orel said...

Yesterday's pitching duel is materializing tonight.

MeanieBreanie said...

Nic and I are tied.

Cliff Beefpile said...

fuckin' werth. lick my balls you hairy piece of shit.

Nostradamus said...

God damn, score some runs!

spank said...

That is like a half inning delay

Cliff Beefpile said...

gameday is really slow for some reason, but i can't stand to watch these titty beasts on tv.

spank said...

I took the fucking lead

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FAIL

NicJ said...

karen said...

Yes siree, I'm loving Fontenot tonite

spank said...

Giant Idiots

NicJ said...

Kyle Baker said...

Kung Fat Panda could have done that!

spank said...

The ladies are kicking the guys bootays in fantasy football

Nostradamus said...

Ain't that the way…

spank said...

I need some crackers for my beer. Shit is hot like caldo (soup).

Orel said...

CODY ROSS STRIKES AGAIN

karen said...

Shit

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GODDAMN YOU CODY ROSS YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT

NicJ said...

you have to be fucking kidding me

Josh S. said...

Is Ross a free agent? Ned is licking his chops.

MeanieBreanie said...

Time to crack open a Spanish Albarino.

NicJ said...

i think he has one more Arb year.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Baseball Reference says he's a free agent after the 2011 season.

Kyle Baker said...

I hate everything.

Kyle Baker said...

^Except beer

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate both of these fucking teams. I hate them so much. I hate every single player on on both benches, in both lineups, in both rotations, in both bullpens, I hate them all.

spank said...

My sentiments exactly MLASF

karen said...

I'm beginning to wonder if we brought left over bad luck from the Dodgers season with us into the post season.

MeanieBreanie said...

Fontenot is having a banner evening.

MeanieBreanie said...

spank said...

Now i can focus on the baseball game . for now

spank said...

FUCK YOU GNATS

NicJ said...

almost time for the laker game.

Orel said...

Phillies with some Ecksteinesque gritty play. 2-1 PHI

NicJ said...

Ross is totally Ruizing the Phils right now.

MeanieBreanie said...

Phiwy getting some mojo.

spank said...

Stat Lickers vs. Shaft Liquors is the fucking game of the century.

spank said...

But he did not get Ross out. ASSHOLE

Josh S. said...

An extreme closeup of Timmeh's nails. EPIC TELEVISION.

karina said...

@Josh 5:05 PM loved that comment!

@el montanero read the article, I got so angry and in spite I haven't seen the Walt Disney Concert Hall, you don't mess with Frank Gehry*, specially if you have trouble building sand castles (as I suspect it's the case of this person). Also, I didn't get the mockery with the library, libraries also own newspapers,magazines, records, catalogues...etc.

I want to dress up so much and going for afternoon tea at Biltmore Hotel.

*cc Mr C

karina said...

This is my third baseball game of the day, do I have a problem?

Kyle Baker said...

@Karina

Yes, you do have a problem. The problem is there is no fourth game to watch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Frank Gehry? Like curvy linear forms much?

spank said...

I like when Karina types in abstract
;)

Josh S. said...

If you have Renteria, try Immodium!

spank said...

Swing the fucking bats you bunch of fucking dickwads

karina said...

@Dusty Baker haha, that's right

@Mr LASF I'm a sucker for those "curvy linear forms", ie Calatrava

@Spanky abstract like a Kandisky's painting? ;)

spank said...

Manning fumble

Orel said...

Pat Burrell = Gaston from "Beauty & the Beast"?

MeanieBreanie said...

Cody Ross can bite me!

spank said...

Fonte-not looks like a crack head

Get some sun MOTHERFUCKER

MeanieBreanie said...

My dog Nikita howls better than that!

karina said...

@Orel Beast=Sandoval?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

SHIT ASS FUCK

MeanieBreanie said...

What's sad is that my record is better than that of the Cowboys :(

NicJ said...

at least most everyone in the west lost.

im still alive!!

NicJ said...

go spank go!!

spank said...

I have the same record as your Cowboys MB.

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
There is the possibility that it can change for you tonight ;~)

spank said...

Meanie

Dusty and I still have one more player left each to play tomorrow. That is why it's the game of the century.

karina said...

SAFE!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oswalt scores while wearing a jacket.

NicJ said...

how does it feel!?!?!

Orel said...

@Karina "Beast=Sandoval?"

Very nice!

3-1 PHI!

MeanieBreanie said...

Oswalt score - suck it Gints!

*Can't believe I'm saying this. Will catch holy hell from a guy I know in Philly.

Orel said...

I agreed with McCarver about Victorino not bunting, but it's hard to disagree with the result.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thank goodness for that fumble. I did not want to see Addai again.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

C'mon, 'Skins, use up that clock. Make Manning throw the ball.

Orel said...

"@Alyssa_Milano I <3 Oswalt. #Phillies #BitterDodgerFanTweet"

spank said...

How come none of the ladies say great things about Ryan Howards looks?

karina said...

@Orel loved your comment, from now on I'm going to see Burrel and think "Gaston" and Sandoval looks more than the Beast than Kung Fu Panda :)

karina said...

My mom says Ryan Howard is handsome.

Orel said...

Has Ryan Howard done anything in the playoffs yet?

Orel said...

Besides look handsome.

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
Nothing against Ryan Howard. He's just not my type.

Orel said...

IBB gives PHI RA!

spank said...

mmmmhhhh

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Orel - He's batted.

Orel said...

Panda sighting!

Orel said...

Exactly, MLASF.

Hot smash to third. Hot smash to third.

spank said...

Addai just scored another TD

NicJ said...

they only love him for his money

Cliff Beefpile said...

panda in for defense...the jints are giving up?
