NLDS Game 2 Thread: Bravos @ Gigantes, 6:30p

Tommy Hanson (10-11, 3.33) vs. Matt Cain (13-11, 3.14).

COMMENTS: The only thing making the Braves' two hits off Tim Lincecum look reasonable? The Reds' zero hits off Roy Halladay. The Braves should be Abel to muster a few more knocks against Cain, but Jason Heyward needs to make some noise in order to bolster his ROY credentials in the court of public opinion. Maybe he can fool an umpire into making the wrong call or something.

God forbid baseball institutes replay. Then chaos would just break out. Imagine, five-minute delays to look over a call! MADNESS!

karina said...

I agree, Mr LASF. If that rule is instituted, I can imagine 5-hour 9-inning games. I love extra-innings but games that long might reduce my baseball consumption to one a day ;)

karina said...

Dusty Baker said...

Son of Scooby! Didn't know about this thread.

MR. F said...

Scrappy Doo is in fact Scooby's nephew. Damn.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, I don't think Scoob ever procreated, did he?

MR. F said...

According to his wikipedia page, no. But he has had his love interests.

Orel said...

speaking of which

MR. F said...

Nice one, Orel. But no pics of Scooby's myriad of love interests?

Amber, Dusk, Chiquita, Googy, Sandy Duncan, Jeannie, Sled dog, and Miyumi!

Who knew Scooby had a case of canine yellow fever!!

Spanky said...

This blog is starting to turn into a freaking pet store.

MR. F said...

The best damned pet store in town!

Neeebs said...

Magilla Gorilla at Mr. Peebles pet store.

Now that was a pet store.

But then again, only RBN is old enough to remember that one. I think.

karen said...

Greetings Boys and Girls

I'm feeling too much love in here what with talk of The Scoob and pet shops and all.

Embrace your HATE people. Tonite the Bravos need all of our hate juju focused on the evil Gnats!!!

karen said...

Those orange jerseys look ridiculous

karen said...

Hooray!! Gnats down at 3rd and home plate!

Spanky said...

You got knocked the fuck out Oyster Pubes



What's up Karen

MR. F said...

Yo Karen!

I feel like saying "Greetings" or "hello" isn't hate-y enough.

karen said...

Hey Spank & MrF!!

I'm feelin' your hate!!!

Spanky said...

What is this? Alternate jersey night.

Spanky said...

HATEHATEHATE

karen said...

Tommy Hanson from my hometown of Redlands. That's good enough for me to ratchet up the HATE another degree.

Spanky said...

Fucking Sandoval.What a a fucking drama queen all thrown on the ground

Spanky said...

FUCK NO

karen said...

I hate Pat Burrell

MR. F said...

FUCK YOU PAT BURRELL!

YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO ANYBODY NAMED PATRICK!

Orel said...

great

Spanky said...

And then the next batter is an easy out after the fucking homer. What a bunch of fucking shmucks

Steve Sax said...

Dear Braves

What the fuck, are you going to put up a fight or not?

Sincerely
SoSG Sax

karen said...

Ok everyone, since Karina isn't here, I'll step outside of my hate for a moment to remind us all to take a deep breath and remember it's only the 2nd inning.

Spanky said...

Kick some dirt on the umps shoe Cox

Spanky said...

I need one of my playoff picks to win one game. I haven't ran naked with a fish in a long time and I'm yearning for it.

karen said...

@Spank--When the Braves comeback and win this, what kind of fish are you going to run with tonite?

Spanky said...

Sit down and eat another bucket of chicken BASTARD

MR. F said...

What frightens me most about Big Fat Panda?

(size)

Spanky said...

@ karen

That gets decided at the very last second in order to draw inspiration from the comments (like sharktopus)
Except for the trout. That one was already in the bag.

karen said...

Well crap.

Spanky said...

Goddamn it Braves.You guys suck

MR. F said...

Dear Braves,

Fuck.

MR. F

Spanky said...

Flyout double play.


We Make Party!

MR. F said...

We have to have higher standards than that, Spanky. This isn't the Dodgers we're talking about.

karen said...

How can the baseball gods do this to us after what we've been through already this season??

Spanky said...

Might as well Mr.F. There has been nothing to celebrate the last couple days

Spanky said...

*Channeling Karina*

One run at a time Bravos. One run at a time.

Josh S. said...

FUCK SHIT ASS BITCH FUCK!!!

Some team I fucking hate is going to win the World Series. (Or maybe the Rangers, who I'm indifferent about.) Why even bother watching?

karen said...

Gnat fans are so stupid, they have to be told when to shake their rags.

karen said...

YAY! A Gnat strikeout!

*Baby steps*

Spanky said...

The ball got kept in the infield.

We Make Mega-Party!!

Spanky said...

Mute Time

Mr. Customer said...

Oh for fucks sake this isn't watchable.

MR. F said...

Indeed.

karen said...

C'mon Bravos, time to nut up

Spanky said...

Do something Ankiel you crazy armed bastard

karen said...

A single! A single!! :)

Spanky said...

Come on Fuckers.We need some runs

Fred's Brim said...

What the hell am I doing home on a Friday night watching the goddam Giants go up 2-0?
Getting drunk, that's what!

MR. F said...

Come on Heyward! Work your magic!

Fred's Brim said...

double play coming up

Fred's Brim said...

fuck me in the goat ass

Spanky said...

Freddie Brim ruining the inning

Thanks dude!

Fred's Brim said...

"Beat ATL" signs? Really? Is that the best the SF Comical could do?

karen said...

Greetings FB!!

Fred's Brim said...

sorry everybody.

If that makes you leave the house early to get your drank on, you can thank me later

Fred's Brim said...

hi karen!

the only thing enjoyable about this game is the ads for the Crystal Caves. I want to go there

MR. F said...

Sigh. This is terrible.

Fred's Brim said...

siddown, Michael Cera haircut

Spanky said...

Actually I'm going to go get my grub on. Be back to see the rest of this injustice

Fred's Brim said...

these spring training uniforms are pathetic

Fred's Brim said...

spanky, get mini sirloin burgers!

karina said...

I fell asleep...


Epale everyone! have faith after all, they're wearing orange jerseys like their Aguilas counterparts.

Results? no championships

Fred's Brim said...

is the Braves hat even blue? it looks black

Fred's Brim said...

hi karina!
what is Coper doing in that picture?

karen said...

Yay!! Karina's here!

Epale Karina. We've been being very brave and trying to be positive. Let's hope you brought lotsa luck!!

MR. F said...

Epale Karina!

Well, mostly Karen's been trying to be brave and positive. The rest of us have been our usually doomy and gloomy selves.

Fred's Brim said...

ahhh it's the pumpkins vs the garbage bags!

Fred's Brim said...

Pat the skillet!

karina said...

It was taken last Sunday, after he went to a March for human rights. He was very hot, so my mom took away his shirt and shoes. My sister-in-law and I were in the back of my dad's truck, so he hit the window so they opened it from him.

It's important to notice how Coper and Jaco (my sister-in-law Yorkie) were in the cabin and we were outside and do not minding at all :)

Go Braves! you can do this!

MR. F said...

Braves scored?!

SUPER MEGA PARTY!!!!

karina said...

I'm so proud of you, Karen. Way to go, my SoSG sister!

Fred's Brim said...

we want Mota!

karina said...

^took off is the right phrasal verb

Fred's Brim said...

hehe Coper's naked!!!

Steve Sax said...

One fucking run, come on Braves you wimps

Steve Sax said...

SF fans are conferring over Chardonnay, trying to figure out how to pronounce "beat ATL"

karen said...

@Saxy--The only chant they know is Beat LA

Fred's Brim said...

these stinking Braves are going to turn me into Phillies fans, aren't they?

god why am I watching baseball anymore?

Fred's Brim said...

"Beat Attle!"

Al Attles, watch out!

karen said...

@FB--Please don't become a Pillies fan :(

If I have to, I'll root for the Yankees in the WS

karen said...

^Phillies

Fred's Brim said...

I know, karen, I know. I just don't know what to do :(

karen said...

@FB--It really makes for an anti-climactic season. First your team sucks, then your two most hated rivals are probably going to duel it out for the NLCS. The only thing we can do if that happens is become American league fans.

karina said...

@Fred's Brim hahahaha, that's right, he always wear a shirt and shoes when he's out ;)

@karen I thought the exact same thing, I'd rather root for the Yankees, at the end, it's in my blood too ;)

Fred's Brim said...

go Rangers?

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKING GIANTS PIECES OFF SHIT GET A BROOMSTICK AND SHOVE IT ALL THE WAY UP THERE

karen said...

@FB--I'll go for that

Fred's Brim said...

up where?

karina said...

go CJ Wilson? just kidding!

karen said...

Spanky's home!!

Spanky said...

I feel much much better now thank you very much.

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, it's either that or the asteroid

Spanky said...

I misspelled of

TOO MUCH HATE

karen said...

C'mon Jason. At least make an arguement for ROTY

Fred's Brim said...

@spanky, the extra F was for FUCK YOU GIANTS!

Fred's Brim said...

ack
he was more rotty than ROTY

Spanky said...

Heyward sucks. Rookie of the year.

RRRRRRIIIIIIIIGGGGGHHHHHHHTTTTTTT

Spanky said...

Right on FB

Fred's Brim said...

hmm, they are still showing the "Your culture is so primitive, yet so funky" ad

MR. F said...

Heyward is not having a good first playoff series.

Spanky said...

When did Kung Fu Puto become a switch hitter?

MR. F said...

Nice one, Spanky.

Dusty Baker said...

I hate every fuckin thing there is to hate!!!
*(&(*#^YIU(FY)(YE&)(*%RY&)(*WUYD

Spanky said...

Chino looks latin.

karen said...

@DB--Well said

Mr. Customer said...

Why do I do this to myself. It's clear this post-season is cursed, yet I continue to watch.

Spanky said...

HATEHATEHATE

Fred's Brim said...

same here, Mr C

I just can't look away

Dusty Baker said...

I was commenting on the culture/primitive yet funky commercial on the other thread, in fact.

#ScoobyDoo

Spanky said...

What happened to Karina? I think i scared her with my tirade.

karen said...

@MrC--You continue to watch for the same reason we all watched the Dodgers all season, we're not the sharpest kni...Oh crap! We need to get lives!

Fred's Brim said...

why is Zach Galifianakis pitching?

he's slimmed down some. good for him.

Dusty Baker said...

Get your chardonnay orders in, lads!

WTF is with that beard on Romo? Why does he jet dye it brown like that? Ah, he's number 54, that explains it. My least favorite number on earth because it's the evil twin of 45.

karina said...

I'm here, watching the train wreck silently.

I'm so angry I can't even curse or hate

karina said...

Lee's lead off single!

karina said...

@Mr C @Fred's Brim you're still watching because you're baseball junkies and need your fix, even if it is a lousy one.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm hoping for divine intervention on behalf of the rangers at this point.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

I'll hate for you

Jump off your bridge you orange pansies

Fred's Brim said...

"Bitin' your style, man? And they come out here and make money, like, tryin' to hustle me man? Scooby Doo!"

Spanky said...

No one likes you Romo. You can't even make your own local newspaper and your team is in the playoffs.PLAYOFFS.

It's kinda sad actually.


*laughs*

karen said...

Keep drinking the orange kool aid you dumb bastards

Mr. Customer said...

6 Out blown save opportunity for Wilson.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey Karina, I forgot to ask why your dog's name is Coper. What is the story behind that? It always reminds be of a Beastie Boys lyric.

Mr C
Paul

MR. F said...

Rally you stupid Braves! Rally!!!

karen said...

Maybe Brian Wilson pitches 2 inning saves as good as Jonathon Broxton

We can hope

Dusty Baker said...

Worst. Dressed. Fans. Ever.

karina said...

I just saw a billboard: "fear the beard"

Geeeeez, they can be cool even if they try their best. "In the Beard I trust" is 10000000000 times better

Spanky said...

Was that Larry Bud Mellman in the pinstripes?

Fred's Brim said...

@karina, this is like Brad Pitt in Interview with a Vampire when he is subjected to sucking the blood out of rats

this game is rat blood!

Spanky said...

HaHaHaHa

karina said...

everyone's safe!

*tomahawk chomping*

Dusty Baker said...

This exchange just happened on the Twitters:

Andrew Siciliano: Who was that pimp in the yellow pin-stripes? #giants

Dusty Baker: RT @AndrewSiciliano: Who was that pimp in the yellow pin-stripes? #giants \\Jon Miller?

Fred's Brim said...

YES!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH ASSHOLEZ!!!

karina said...

new game! way to go Alex Gonzalez!

karen said...

YEEESSS!!!

Spanky said...

Fuck Yeah Motherfuckers

Rally up!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Go, you Atlanta Braves of Boston by way of Milwaukee!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm wearing my thong backward for this rally.

Fred's Brim said...

haha those assholes in the Giants bullpen let the ball get on the field during the play

Spanky said...

Ankiel'D

Dusty Baker said...

Beat these shiteaters!

Fred's Brim said...

@DB it's a nice change of pace, isn't it?

karina said...

By the way, Brian Wilson, fashion police just failed you.

Spanky said...

DIE-ASS You Suck

And pronounce your name right,IDIOT

MR. F said...

WOW! LOOK AT THE SCORE!

(ties)

Josh S. said...

Yay, I guess.

@karina I actually do fear Wilson's beard. It looks like a highly contageous skin disease.

Spanky said...

Don't start that bullshit again Mr.F



Anger(arise)

Fred's Brim said...

it looks like that pube beard they put on that dude in that Jackass movie

Dusty Baker said...

Actually it just hit me that Karina's dog and a SoSG reader are both mentioned within the same stanza of a fine Beasties song:

I'm so rope they call me Mr. Roper
When the troubles arise I'm the cool coper
On the mic I score just like the Yankees
Get over on Ms. Crabtree like my main man Spanky

Fred's Brim said...

aww gross, that old cursive Giants logo was sooo bad

karina said...

@Fred's Brim 9:06 PM exactly, however if the Braves win, it might turn into something way more pleasant

@Dusty Baker Coper is short for Copernico (like the scientist's last name). I wanted to call him a) Koufax b) Lasorda but I wasn't allowed since everyone in this family has different MLB loyalties. I also tried to call him Brando, Dean or Boggart :(

My younger brother, who was the one who brought Coper, wanted a scientist name, came up with it and Coper just learned that name for himself at the very first moment (my parents' convo of genes gave us a penchant for geekiness or what?)

karina said...

@Josh that's a fair point. It might even host unknown diseases for humanity. Ewwwwwww

Spanky said...

That sounded made up Holmes.But thanks for the name drop

Dusty Baker said...

Spank, did you just dis the Beastie Boys? Say it ain't so.

"3-Minute Rule" from Paul's Boutique.

#FightinWords

Mr. Customer said...

Siddown, Oyster Pubes.

Dusty Baker said...

Got it, Karina. Dat's coo. Always had wondered.

I got my way and was allowed to name our dog Frankie after Chelsea's Frank Lamaprd.

Spanky said...

They get all of Oyster's Pubes and glue them onto their faces

Spanky said...

How could I have missed that lyric? I must have been pretty high at the time.

Spanky said...

^^glued

Dusty Baker said...

I was decidedly stoned out of my gourd when that first dropped, to be sure.

Spanky said...

ahh fuck grammar

Dusty Baker said...

Does glued refer to your 9:24 or 9:26 comment, Spank? Or both?

Mr. Customer said...

Alright, Bravos. I need runs this inning. I can't handle the thought of a Jint walk off.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, all tied up through 8. Interesting.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB - you ever seen Gummo?

Dusty Baker said...

Not perfect grammar, always perfect timin'
The Mike stands for money and the D is for Diamond


Sorry, Spanky, I'll stop now.

Spanky said...

9:24

too much coke zero.I need a beer to straighten out

Fred's Brim said...

time for Heyward to show everybody what time it is

Fred's Brim said...

it's 12:30

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

No, I didn't. However, at first IMDB glance I note there is midget presence. I'm intrigued.

Fred's Brim said...

Braves need to get to Mota

karina said...

@Steve Sax the Bravos heard your complains :)

Spanky said...

I think I saw an endangered specie crawl in that motherfucking beard

Fred's Brim said...

midgets and glue huffing and some interesting Burt Reynolds references.

it's actually terrible, but worth seeing once, if you like/are interested in Harmony Korine movies

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Or if I'm into midgets and glue huffing and Burt Reynolds references.

karina said...

@Spanky 9:27 PM "ahh fuck grammar"

I've said varieties of that concept for a couple of weeks now. I need 7 out of 9

(sighs)

Dusty Baker said...

^Which I am

karina said...

@Fred's Brim your mota's observations are cracking me up

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

that beard is a veritable Papua New Guinea as far as obscure species identification goes.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I thought you named Frankie after Frank McCourt ;)

sorry but it was too easy to say that, as we say here "me la dejaste de bombita" (baseball slang actually)

Fred's Brim said...

Pablo Sandoval looks like Uncle Majic The Hip Hop Magician

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

It can be an incubator for all the small species of the rain forest

Fred's Brim said...

cripes - this dude brings it

Dusty Baker said...

Uribe Kemp'd.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB, we all are, at least a little

Dusty Baker said...

That fat pumpkin head fuck Sandoval barely fits into his batting helmet.

Fred's Brim said...

not Cody
please, not Cody

Spanky said...

HATEHATEHATE This fucka

Fred's Brim said...

55 "splash hits" at PacBell this season
2 splash hits in my toilet tonight


sorry

Spanky said...

good

karen said...

Thank you Cody Ross!

karina said...
