NLDS Game 1 Thread: Reds @ Phillies, 2p

Red Fill! Get it?

Edinson Volquez (4-3, 4.31) vs. Roy Halladay (21-10, 2.44).

COMMENTS: When going up against the defending NL champions and a team which could do no wrong down the stretch, why not send a 4-3 pitcher who came back to the team mid-July and has only started 12 games this season? It's not like Halladay is much of a threat, anyway. Expect a lot of camera shots of Dusty Baker, whittling that toothpick to a sliver.

Right.

I hope the Reds give you fucks a bow-tie you will never forget.

rbnlaw said...

Luckily, this team of Reds does not resemble the "Big Red Machine" in any way.

I hated those Reds with a passion so 10000-sun-white-hot, that I still think the Hall of Fame is fine without Pete Rose.

For now, Go Reds! Phuck the Phils.

*stocks up on toothpicks*

MR. F said...

AHHH. There are two game threads? I cannot process this information.

Josh S. said...

There will be three GTs, I imagine.

Steve Sax said...

Oh Josh, you are so right.

Dusty Baker said...

Three GTs sounds like the beginning of a good night of gin consumption.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: I meant the other Dusty Baker! The former Dodger, not the current Dodger fan!

Hope you saved the receipt for the toothpicks purchase.

Josh S. said...

I'm picking the team that wears red, has a former Dodger on the coaching staff, and plays in a band box.

Dusty Baker said...

Not sure what to do with all these surplus toothpicks now. Maybe I can use them for kindling to light a fire and burn some fuckin' mattresses.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hope Jay Bruce knocks Chooch unconscious in a collision at the plate. Fucking Ruiz, I hope he gets anally probed by a Volquez fastball.

Josh S. said...

Nothing's catching fire in Westlake today, man.

ROKAY, REVERYBODY! ROVER RERE!

Dusty Baker said...

*checks in at the scorer's table*

*chalks hands*

Mr. Customer said...

Let's go, less irritating team than Philadelphia!

Dusty Baker said...

Wash yer hair, Edinson Volquez!

NicJ said...

i think i have to root for philly here.

They are the only team that can beat the giants in the NL.

Mr. Customer said...

But I only loathe the Phils slightly less than the Giants. It's a conundrum. Should I hope for the best, or plan to avoid the worst?

What a fucked-up postseason this is.

Spanky said...

What in the Wide,Wide World of Sports is going on in this Bish?

el montanero said...

@ nicj and mr. c

my thoughts exactly. i can't even watch victorino. every time i see his face i wanna take a shit on my tv.

Josh S. said...

I can't wait to see what visual pun Sax has lined up for Yanks/Twins.

Josh S. said...

DAMN YOU VICTORINOPUS!

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 2:20p: next GT is up

Dusty Baker said...

We're all going to be schizophrenic after these multiple threads. If we all aren't already.

Mr. Customer said...

I definitely will be.

Dusty Baker said...

"every time i see his face i wanna take a shit on my tv."

THIS is why I love SoSG!

Mr. Customer said...

Me too!

Mr. Customer said...

The fucking pitcher? C'mon...

Mr. Customer said...

Huh. Dusty's comment interrupted my joke, and yet it still resulted in a true statement!

Dusty Baker said...

It actually made the schizophrenia joke better by spacing out both your comments. Well played!

NicJ said...

it seems like this inning has lasted an hour

Spanky said...

Bean the Motherfucker

Josh S. said...

Someone get Edinson back on the juice, quick!

Spanky said...

Fucking idiot.It was a ball.HaHA

Mr. Customer said...

FUCK YOU VICTORINO!

Dusty Baker said...

This was over before it began.

But enough about my prom night.

Steve Sax said...

4-0 and Volquez is pimpsocked early.

Didn't I call that one? Whoomp.

Dusty Baker said...

You went out on a limb with that prediction, Sax.

Spanky said...

Dusty is on the tube. Damn dude,been getting some sun lately,huh.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty Baker + postseason starting pitching decisions = not a good combo

See: Ortiz, Russ; Volquez, Edinson

Mr. Customer said...

@Sax

Even pitchers who were previously good are not immune to Dusty's post-season death touch. (Reference Prior, Mark and Wood, Kerry)

Josh S. said...

Fuck it:

NO-HITTER
NO-HITTER
NO-HITTER
JINX
JINX
JINX

NicJ said...

A NO HITTER!?!?

god this team is so hateable.

MR. F said...

I hate the Phillies.

Steve Sax said...

A NO-HITTER?!?!

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, are you saying that no one from the Reds has actually been credited with a hit ?

MR. F said...

8 innings and 94 pitches. Come on you communists!

NicJ said...

phillies = new yankees

NicJ said...

scratch that

Red Sox = New Yankees

Phillies = New New Yankees

NicJ said...

HATE!! HATE!! HATE!!

Josh S. said...

I hate the Phils, but goddamn Halladay's good.

MR. F said...

He fucking did it.

MR. F said...

Thank Jay Bruce for at least ruining the perfect game.

Mr. Customer said...

Jesus H, we're never going to hear the end of this. Ah, balls.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

I don't even care that its the Phillies. That was so awesome! That was the most well pitched game I've ever seen in my life.

NicJ said...

Doctober?

more like Dicktober.

Josh S. said...

Lost in the shuffle is the fact that the Reds' bullpen 1-hit the Phillies after Edinson was pulled.

Steve Sax said...

Geez. At this stage, let's have them roll the Reds in three so we can have Halladay rested for the next round...

Dusty Baker said...

This Halladay kid is good. Someone might want to sign him long term.

NicJ said...

if Halladay would have agreed to a trade to the Dodgers he could have been throwing a no hitter in Arizona Fall League right now.

Dusty Baker said...

*signing off this thread*

Spanky said...

To hell with this bullshit

rbnlaw said...

Roy Halladay is good at baseball.

rbnlaw said...

and I hate the Phills.
