Post-Game 162 Thread: Now, It's Really A Wrap

DODGERS 3, DIAMONDBACKS 1

That's right, we can take two out of three against the Diamondbacks at home. Take that!

Matt Kemp hits his 28th HR, his fifth in five games (and another two-run shot); Andre Ethier goes 2-for-2 to end his season batting .291; and Brad Ausmus, who announced his retirement before the game, goes 2-for-4 with a double in his finale. Ted Lilly goes seven full innings with nine strikeouts, and Kenley Jansen and Hong-Chih Kuo shut the door on the Snakes. Here's hoping SoSG regular Dusty Baker, who was at the game, won the Hyundai Sonata.

Poor Luis Durango.

Fred's Brim said...

I hope he wins the Sonata, drives over to Frank's house and does 180s all over his front yard

NicJ said...

alright so who am i rooting for to knock the gints out of the first round?

Fred's Brim said...

err donuts, not 180s

where the hell did that come from?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They're Jamie's houses now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

THE SEASON RESTS ON CHRIS DENORFIA

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I MEAN WILL VENABLE

Fred's Brim said...

guh

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Giants are in the playoffs.

(cries)


(vomits)


(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

go Rangers

MeanieBreanie said...

Anyone but the Gnats and Yankees

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

where's dusty with that ascii art of a bird-flipping fist?

possibly in the next thread.

Josh S. said...

THE PADRES ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!

NicJ said...

so who do the gints play? the reds?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I GUESS THE PADRES AND DODGERS AREN'T SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL, HUH STRAWMAN SAN DIEGO WRITER?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They play either Philly or Atlanta.

MeanieBreanie said...

Is anyone watching the Skins/Eagles? Why is Santana Moss not playing? He was projected to score high and he's not even in it. I couldn't find anything about his status on google.

*more tears

karina said...

Padres, at least we sucked most of the season, you had the first place almost locked

Spanktopus said...

I'm rooting for the Twins.

karina said...

I'm rooting for the Twins in the Al (I swear it doesn't have to do with Joe Mauer) and the Reds in the NL

Josh S. said...

YAAAAYYY!! Heath Bell will be watching the playoffs from home!! Hopefully Busty Poser will join him soon.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What did Andy Reid ever see in Kolb? Did he just like him because his name reminded him of corn?

MeanieBreanie said...

Pulling for the Rangers

NicJ said...

im rooting for the lakers.

Spanktopus said...

Santana Moss pulled a no show. Thanks Guy.

Spanktopus said...

Walton got hurt again that brittle bastahd

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
It's a happy day for you that he didn't.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That fancy lateral actually pushed my over the edge to two points. Now I just need Steve Smith and Stephen Gostkowski to combine for 11 more points than Wes Welker.

(cries)

NicJ said...

walton can sit all year for all i care. More minutes for barnes and ebanks.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WAAH THEY TOOK AWAY MAH POINTS FUCK

MeanieBreanie said...

Cries cuz it's down to BenJarvus for me. What kind of name is that anyway?

Spanktopus said...

@ MB

I'm up 7 and we both have a player left. This is going to get ugly if Cutler blows.

Spanktopus said...

BenJarvus is my middle name.

karina said...

@Nic J 4:19 PM hahahahaha, I root for the Twins because any team better than my White Sox is a good team. If my White Sox actually suck big time, I'll just let it be.

It's different with my Dodgers,I feel like they should in the playoffs, no matter what and I just deny my Dodgers actually suck, even if they've had more horrible seasons than 2010

MeanieBreanie said...

This is going to be a very long winter:

Longhorns are subpar
Spurs are aging and need rebuilding
Cowboys need major improvement

MeanieBreanie said...

Fred, I'm feeling depressed. Will you share your slivovitz?

NicJ said...

opening day next year is a must attend.

Kershaw v. Lincecum

Mr. Customer said...

Echoing the everyone's sentiments from the GT. Those of you that will be here wasting time with me during the off-season, I salute you.

Big thanks to the Sons for being tolerant, even gracious hosts.

NicJ said...

or maybe padilla

Spanktopus said...

A Cowboy AND a Spur fan. Why do I even try?




Fuck Walton!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking Spurs can kiss my ass.

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
It's a total package; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

MR. F said...

I'm clinging to a 3 point lead. Johnny Knox and Lawrence Tynes (my kicker) need to somehow out-do Jay Cutler and Hakeem Nicks...

Spanktopus said...

HaHa! The Spurs. Oh NO!!



*slits wrists

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

今シーズンは多くの悲しみをもたらした。しかし、あなたのすべてが良いシーズンを作りました。そして、そのために、私はあなたに感謝します。私もとても親切で寛大さのスティーブガーベイの息子に感謝します。

MeanieBreanie said...

Ooh, touched a nerve with Mr. LASF. The Spurs are the only thing this city has. Give us a break. I'm not a fan of the Lakers but I respect the talent on the team and don't bash them.

Spanktopus said...

To Bad Mr.F. Cutler is going to be the man today.

Spanktopus said...

I feel like I'm looking at a game of Mahjong

Mr. Customer said...

There are far more hate able teams than the Spurs for me, but then again, I'm as hard-core about the Lakers as some.

MR. F said...

I certainly don't expect to win.

(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Once I'm certain the Spurs are crappy again, I'll hate them. But for now, I still carry scars of some painful losses.

NicJ said...

the spurs are just old and sad now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

*I'll hate them less.

Spanktopus said...

I hate Phoenix more than the Spurs

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hate Boston the most. Then Miami. Then the Spurs. Then Phoenix. I have to see the dropoff the Suns experience without Amar'e.

Mr. Customer said...

The Sac Kings have been terrible for years, and I still loathe them.

Dusty Baker said...

alas I didn't win the sonata. Honestly I liked the other prizes better - signed Joe torre jersey or season loge tix.

I made some game notes and took some pics. Once I get that put together I'll share it. Pretty classy day at the Yard (by the team not me).

NicJ said...

meh, i have a feeling the lakers are going to run away with the west this year.

OKC is very good but they can no longer catch teams by surprise.

MeanieBreanie said...

Trust me, they will be crappy again. It's gonna take time to rebuild. Tim and Manu are aging and this is most likely Tony's last year with this franchise. The new guy Tiago Splitter is unproven.

Mr. Customer said...

Love the disclaimer, dusty.

Spanktopus said...

Those were some great times against the Sac.Queens.

NicJ said...

dodgertalk proclaims the dodgers can turn it around next year.

whatever.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So do I give my Sizzler voucher to Levine now, or what?

NicJ said...

this guy Ken from Newport is a dick.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If someone calls up DodgerTalk, I'll pay him/her $5 to use my joke.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DSBG IS CALLING UP DODGERTALK

karina said...

@Mr LASF if my dad wasn't calling my aunt.I'd call DodgerTalk for you.

Do you think if I mention I'm calling from Venezuela, they would give me airtime?

karina said...

GINTS FAN ON THE LINE!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Does Levine know that Ausmus has never won a championship?

Dusty Baker said...

DSBG was a really cool caller, BTW. Didn't want to talk about himself, just showed Dodger love. Positive outlook on next season. Let's give it up for DSBG!

Neeebs said...

To echo MC's sentiments...THANK YOU SOSG.

Now bring on Hockey Season.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The offer stands for just 10 minutes.

Dusty Baker said...

Jill calling from LA is not me, BTW.

NicJ said...

kings currently losing to the ducks.

boo

karina said...

I know I already did it, but thanks To josh too point me out the way to listen to DodgerTalk

Dusty Baker said...

Right field scoreboard after the day read:

"Kids Run the Bases"

I thought, yeah, story of our base running this season.

karina said...

^to Josh to ...

NicJ said...

I wonder where JMart will play next year?

karina said...

@Dusty Baker very accurate from both the scoreboard and you!

happy anniversary!

Dusty Baker said...

Dodger Talk over. Right wing hate radio up next on 790AM.

karina said...

@NicJ with the Dodgers! ;)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DodgerTalk's over anyway. I'm disappointed nobody took my offer. Shame. SHAME I SAY.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

As opposed to left wing hate radio?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

thanks! third year in a row we were there for our anniversary. alas, dodgers are out of town for that date next season. mrs dusty, mdil and i had a great time at the Yard today, though. got a little weepy at times, but it was all good. nothing but love for the Blue today.*

*this could change tomorrow

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

But that's not what comes on the radio next.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One thing I want out of the Kings is better PP efficiency. These missed opportunities drive me nuts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Actually there's a food show on right now.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

Good. That will mean 1 hour of the other 23 hours of the day that 790 doesn't broadcast right wing hate radio.

Fred's Brim said...

@MB sorry for the delay - I hope you are feeling better now. At least the Cowboys didn't play today :)
And you are welcome to my slivovitz any time. It's in the freezer next to the finlandia

Josh S. said...

I'll call in to Dodger Talk tomorrow.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

But there is no DodgerTalk tomor-

wait, I see what you did there...

Dusty Baker said...

Is there going to be a playoff bitterness thread?

Otherwise I have no outlet for my pent-up sports anger.

Mr. Customer said...

Everyone playing right now is bad at football.

Mr. Customer said...

Except the defense, that is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jay Cutler is costing Spanky points.

karina said...

@Mr LASF so you know, I was just waiting you to give me the green light

karina said...

99

karina said...

100!

Spanktopus said...

This weekend is getting even more bizarre.It's quite unbelievable really.

Spanktopus said...

If I don't get 10 more points from Cutler tomorrow will really be jacked

Spanktopus said...

OH Snap! Cutler is gone. WTF. I was gone I didn't see it





NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
!

karina said...

@Spanky though I have one Bradshaw playing and two more playing tomorrow. I feel like Jason is going to win.

I'm even currently watching the game so I can him play

Spanktopus said...

Keep your spirits high,K. You are going to need something from Williams if Marshall doesn't have a huge game tomorrow.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Fred
Thanks for your offer and your hospitality. I hope I won't need it anytime soon.

@Spank
Cutler blew.
As usual it's a slugfest between the two of us although you have a slight lead. Tomorrow will tell the tale.

karina said...

^watch him

karina said...

@Spanky @Meaniebreanie is Bradshaw that good? because if it wasn't for him,the Giants wouldn't have had that touchdown

MeanieBreanie said...

Karina
I hate the footbal Giants as well and don't follow them. I'm not qualified to answer about Bradshaw as I know nothing about him.

Spanktopus said...

@ karina

Bradshaw was a bust and second string.Brandon Jacobs was the star RB up until I drafted him for fantasy football. Now they switched.

Spanktopus said...

@ MB

To have it any other way would not be us.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm so happy I get Santonio Holmes next week.

NicJ said...

just woke up and can't stop laughing about Cutler and his -3 points.

sorry spank.

NicJ said...

that FG probably just pushed me out of range of a win.

Spanktopus said...

The MOFO got sacked like 10 times

rbnlaw said...

Homer: Why do we have to go to church, we just visited Grandpa?

Bart: Yeah, we heard stories of what happened 1000's of years ago that didn't really happen.

Still genius.

NicJ said...

oh god this is a terrible game.

rbnlaw said...

Game?

Oh yeah, the NF fucking L.
5 picks win;1000 lose.

Fuck the NFL.

Go Braves!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bitter much?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The #3 QB just had the best pass the Bears have seen all night.

MR. F said...

I'm in such a nail biter. No passes to Nicks and I'll win. 1 pass to Nicks and I probably lose.

MR. F said...

Okay after I posted it no longer became a nail biter.

MR. F said...

LOL. Al Michaels calls them the Jints.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Did Bob Costas leave his contacts at home?

Spanktopus said...

ESG-11 cheap points

Brandon Jacobs- 12 cheap points

Their replacement- 0

Cutler- -3

Brees-15


HATE YOU FANTASY FOOTBALL!

karina said...

@Spank I found fantasy football so interesting, unlike baseball, you need so much from your teammates!

karina said...

^is so

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ファンタジーフットボールの今日は哀れだった。ジャクソンは私に何を与えた。スティーブスミスと同じです。私はサントニオホームズの到着を待っています。


地獄、スパンキーに移動します!

NicJ said...

every time i look at cutler's stupid smiling picture with the little -3 next to it i laugh for like 5 minutes.

fantasy football is a bitch.

karina said...

so far,fantasy football is a blessing. If you don't agree just talk to Mr LASF

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh wow that is Flo.
