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.

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

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

Spanky 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!

Spanky said...

mmmmhhhh

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Orel - He's batted.

Orel said...

Panda sighting!

Orel said...

Exactly, MLASF.

Hot smash to third. Hot smash to third.

Spanky said...

Addai just scored another TD

NicJ said...

they only love him for his money

el montanero said...

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

karen said...

Spank--Ryan Howard does nothing for me. :(

Spanky said...

HaHa

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's the nose. Women dig the pig snouts.

Spanky said...

Ron Washingtons cocaine hates his nostrils

NicJ said...

the new jazz uniforms look sharp.

Orel said...

OH SO CLOSE

MeanieBreanie said...

Rollins is hotter than Howard. Ladies, do you agree?

Orel said...

Rollinsed. Welcome to the club, Giants fans.

karina said...

I hadn't said this in ten years: I love you, Jimmy Rollins

Spanky said...

^ Howards nostrils

j-ro!!!

karen said...

I hope hearts are breaking all across Frisco

Orel said...

AND I get my hot smash to third! Unfortunately, Sandoval caught it.

Mr. Customer said...

Ah, that's the good stuff!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm digging this score.

Spanky said...

Keep running the ball Colts

karina said...

Meaniebreanie I concur, though he's not also my type.

NicJ said...

Kirilenko's hair looks ridiculous.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck the Giants!!!

karen said...

MB--Yes, I agree. Jimmy Rollins over Ryan Howard.

Spanky said...

The Jazz uniforms look like the Spurs

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MY WINNING HELPS YOU, YOU SON OF A BITCH

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karen, Karina
Though neither is our type.

karina said...

@Nic J I have a chance at winning in fantasy!

karen said...

Gawd, KFP is a fat ass!!

Spanky said...

There you go MLASF. Addai is down Desean styles

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And he fumbled. That's a loss of two.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking Lard Lad, gets a walk.

Spanky said...

EAT MY CACA KUNG FU PUTO

karina said...

@karen @Meaniebreanie we seem to have the same taste. Just to be sure, are you into sideburns, Meanie?

Spanky said...

I've got like 5 tabs and 6 windows open at this moment

MeanieBreanie said...

If you are talking about CJ, yes! Sideburns meh; I can take them or leave them. It depends on the rest of the package ;~)

Spanky said...

What about one sideburn?

rbnlaw said...

So sorry to see the Giants struggling.

(giggles)

#SCHADENFREUDE

rbnlaw said...

Kung Fu Puto.

Classic.

Spanky said...

Showing some Moxie leaving Oswalt in

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie how about Joe Mauer sideburns? those are epic facial hair

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
He's a hottie regardless of what he wears or doesn't wear. That is what I mean by the "total package".
You have to talk all factors into consideration.

Steve Sax said...

Hate hate hate

MeanieBreanie said...

Hello Saxy. Come join us and spread the hate.

karen said...

Meanie--"If you're talking about CJ Wilson..." You hit that nail right on the head, girlfriend!

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karen
Great minds think alike ;~)

karina said...

RT @OldHossRadbourn R. Oswalt has thrown 88 pitches. This is too economical. I liked to waste my first 60 or so throwing at batters and recalcitrant umpires.

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU ROMO.


SERGIO ROMO TOO

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie "He's a hottie regardless of what he wears or doesn't wear"

I blushed and laughed.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
For once I agree with you. I've had enough of the Romo's. To hell with them all!

Spanky said...

Meanie


s'

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
Are you sure you still want to meet me? Any innocence you have left will surely be shredded.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus christ, I get one burrito and a txt msg conversation between 12 year old girls breaks out.

So I'm off like a prom dress.

rbnlaw said...

Davey Lopes is hot.

Spanky said...

I don't know. Lopes is not really my type.

Orel said...

Heroic catch by Ibanez!

Spanky said...

RAUL!

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie it'd be an honor. Besides someone has to shred my innocence



well done Ibanez!

karina said...

Spanky RAUL? that doesn't sound right, I think about our RAUUUUUUUUUUL

karina said...

@Dusty don't complain, you all talk about women all the time

NicJ said...

does the phanatic have sideburns?

NicJ said...

PELON!

Spanky said...

It had nothing to do with Ibanez, Karina. It was an inside but outside joke.

Spanky said...

EAT CACA GNATS

Orel said...

Lesser Evils WIN!

NicJ said...

SUCK IT GINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

karen said...

I'm going to say it again, simply because it brings me such joy. I HOPE HEARTS ARE BREAKING ALL ACROSS FRISCO!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WOOHOO PHILLY WINS!!!

(cries)

(vomits)

(passes out)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I wish MJD was a one-man wrecking crew.

(cries)

Spanky said...

I hope your guy does good MLASF that way Mercedes does not get any looks

Steve Sax said...

That's right! Fuck the Giants!!!

MeanieBreanie said...

FUCK THE GNATS! Hope Philly sticks it to them the rest of the series.

Just heard Roy Oswalt speak. That boy has one helluva southern twang.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I need 50 yards from MJD to win.

rbnlaw said...

The language from these ladies.

Suck a left one, Gnats!

cc: MCC

Spanky said...

84-80 bishes. It is on tomorrow.

Mr. Customer said...

Thank got for small miracles. Best of five, now.

Josh S. said...

I can't do it. I've anguished over this for a few days now, but I cannot bring myself to root for the Phillies. Even against the Giants. Those fuckfaces have squashed our nuts and our dreams in a vice for two years straight (three, if you count the regular season squashing this year)! I hate them. I want to punch their hillbilly valley girl manager in the throat.

The Giants, on the other hand, haven't done remotely anything to us (other than be the Giants, which, admittedly, is a heinous offense) in yeeeeeaaars. They're a terrible team who are only there because the Padres choked away the West.

I'm not saying I don't hate the Giants. Far from it. I want to set Wilson's beard on fire. It's just that I cannot abide the PHUCKING PHILLIES going to another World Series. Let the Giants have this one. Then, I will dance on their broken souls as they are once again stomped by the American League champ.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

 

Fred's Brim said...

Josh, I am with you on this one. I wasn't sure how I'd feel when these two matched up, but I figured I could muster enough hateHateHATE! for the Giants to pull for the Phillies. But I get absolutely no joy seeing the Phillies win, even if it's at the Giants' expense. I just can't do it. I only get more mad at the Phillies when they lose to the Giants. That's the only direction this relationship can go at this point

Josh S. said...

Wooo! Thanks, FB! Who else is with us?

Remember, if the Phillies win, Charlie Manuel will be managing the NL All-Stars AGAIN. (I know, Bochy's not much better.)

Spanky said...

Are you rooting for the Gnats then, Josh and FB. Is that what you are saying. Give it to us straight but I cannot be responsible for the consequences.

I have not said a kind word about neither fucking team and I will not in the future.They can all burn in hell.

Don't turn on Dodger blue.
