Saturday LCS Super-Duper Thread

The Giants have Aubrey Huff. SoSG offers you Aubrey Plaza.

ALCS Game 2: Yankees @ Rangers, 1p
Phil Hughes (Postseason 1-0, 0.00) vs. Colby Lewis (Postseason 0-0, 0.00).

NLCS Game 1: Giants @ Phillies, 4:30p
Tim Lincecum (Postseason 1-0, 0.00) vs. Roy Halladay (Postseason 1-0, 0.00).

COMMENTS: Wow. If you thought the Dodgers' epic collapse against the Yankees in June was bad, at least they didn't save it for Game 1 of the LCS. Up 5-1 last night, the Rangers' bullpen allowed five runs in the eighth and the Yankees won 6-5. The two teams go at it again today, but if the Rangers don't tie the series up, all the Cliff Lees in the world won't help them.

As for the ballyhooed NLCS pitching matchup, I'm going to break from conventional thinking and predict that Lincecum gets lit up this afternoon. No, not like that. Phillies take this one, 5-1.

First up in dis super-duper bish!

Come on, Chelsea!

Fred's Brim said...

christonacracker. They were just fawning over Oyster Pubes during the BC-FSU football game. It's gonna be a long day

Fred's Brim said...

Nice work by ManU this morning...

Fred's Brim said...

Not knowing your target audience, ex #1:
Jewish funeral home commercial during the Boston College (Jesuits) vs Florida State (devilish heathens) football game, on a Saturday afternoon.

Dusty Baker said...

Who the fuck are Man United?!?!!

Mr. Customer said...

ManU appropriately joints the hatehateHATE megathread. Bwahahaha!

Fred's Brim said...

I think they are that declining team owned by Americans not named Liverpool

Spanky said...

Fuck Lacrosse!

Mr. Customer said...

@FB

I hope being owned by a new set of yanks marks the nadir of L'pool's decline. They've been downright embarrassing.

Dusty Baker said...

I can't really see myself moving more than 9 yards from where I am now for the rest of the day. Premiership, collitch football, baseball, cold beer, bacon...

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

It is kind of funny how LFC supporters have spent the better part of two weeks wailing and gnashing their teeth over American ownership, only to be saved by...American ownership.

Fred's Brim said...

me too, DB. Mrs FB is off at a wedding and I feel like Cliff Huxtable when Mrs H was out of town. I have drinks and hoagies and all kinds of snacks that'll get eaten today.

Fred's Brim said...

@MR C they'll be back up again, no doubt

Dusty Baker said...

How did you get out of having to go to the wedding, FB? I'm impressed.

And, didn't you just have to go to a wedding last weekend?

Fred's Brim said...

*bows* why thank you, sir!

Mrs FB knows I hate weddings, and she didn't decide that she wanted to go until the last minute, so I was spared

Fred's Brim said...

and yeah we had a wedding last weekend too. That one was in town so it didn't involve much more than putting on a suit and showing up. This one was in Florida

Fred's Brim said...

I thought for a second Villa was advertising FoxPro

Fred's Brim said...

< /old nerd>

Fred's Brim said...

damn, I heard that post here

Fred's Brim said...

yikes that was scary

Fred's Brim said...

damn - shoulda scored that

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck me, Anelka. How hard is it?

Dusty Baker said...

FoxPro - hell yeah.

Dusty Baker said...

RIP, Mandelbrot, you fractal bastard.

Dusty Baker said...

I think the FA called for this match to be a draw so Chelsea won't run away with the title so early on in the season.

Fred's Brim said...

i can believe that

Spanky said...

Hate

rbnlaw said...

Good luck to the Liverpool Red Sox tomorrow against the Toffies.

Going to watch the Arsenal game on DVR now. I'm hoping for a better result than rbnIV got in his game today. Lost by an own-goal from one of our defenders. My boy was the muddiest kid on the pitch, making daddy proud.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and this:

HATEHATEHATEHATEHATEHATE!!!

and fuck the Yankees.

and fuck the Giants.

and fuck Man U.

Dusty Baker said...

fuckFuckFUCK ManU!

Spanky said...

Fuck Phili

Fuck Arsenal


AJAX RULEZ!

Orel said...

Cheers to FB for getting out of a wedding and watching televised sporting events instead. We're so proud of you!

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...don't get a lot of Ajax support around these here parts.

Finished servicing my cpu. Gonna take my pops to get his lotto.Stock up on some Haterade, Spank styles.Hit the grill with some ribs.Piss off the neighbors with extremely loud levels of music and surliness.Be back in time for first pitch.

HATERPALOOZA IN FOOL EFFECT

FUCK THE GNATS
FUCK THE PHILS

Dusty Baker said...

"Stock up on some Haterade"

NICE!

Dusty Baker said...

You mean "Hit the grill with some robs."

Orel said...

Craig Sager talking about shadows. Try not to destroy your TVs!

Orel said...

I've been to Phoenix, Arizona...

Orel said...

Jeter goes down like a prom date!

Orel said...

Smooth sailing for Colby in the first.

Spanky said...

Festivity delay.

And I don't use a knofe on these robs.

hateHateHATE

Orel said...

Elvis steals second and third in the inning. Kinsler taking notes.

Josh S. said...

Craig Sager destroys TV all on his own.

Dusty Baker said...

HAHAHAHAHA!

Orel said...

Yanks fall for the steal second/steal home gambit! Turns out Posada is human.

Dusty Baker said...

Do you think that double steal was planned? Or was it just heads up base-running by Andrus when he saw what was happening at second? I only glanced up so didn't see full context.

Orel said...

Robinson Cano is hitting everything right now. Wasn't there a Kemp-Cano trade rumor at one point?

Orel said...

It looked planned, DB, but supposedly Washington gives his runners a lot of leeway.

Dusty Baker said...

Gotcha. Either way it was really heads up. Refreshing to us Dodgers fans.

Orel said...

"The Natural" music after a HR? Do they always do that?

Orel said...

Chances Rangers will be 5-0 in the seventh?

Orel said...

Two-out hit parade! 3-0 TEX

Spanky said...

They need to get way more runs to get me excited.

Josh S. said...

Orel, yes, they always do that.

This team has the offense to beat the Yanks. They just need to hold them off.

Spanky said...

Rancho Vladiendo

Orel said...

I wonder if Angels fans are pissed that Vlad Guerrero got in shape for the Rangers.

Spanky said...

I should have done the Claw

Josh S. said...

They also used to play the MLB on FOX theme at certain times. It always made me think the game was going to commercial when it wasn't.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Texas is winning against New York! There's no way this could possibly backfire!

Spanky said...

STFU Ron Darling!

Orel said...

Jeter really Jetered down the line there.

Spanky said...

BULLSHIT!

Dusty Baker said...

Yankmes sure are a buncha pussies when it comes to barely being graved by a pitched ball. Real men would want to stay in and swing away not take their wussy base.

Orel said...

Remember when Cat Stevens was a pariah? Now they're using his music for JP Morgan commercials.

Fred's Brim said...

I miss Gatorgum. Whatever happened to that?

Fred's Brim said...

Cat must be running out of money

Dusty Baker said...

I chewed the HAY-UL out of some Gatorgum.

Orel said...

Missed it by that much! Cruz leadoff double.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, Peace Train gotta have a 401(k), too.

Orel said...

Weird seeing AL teams bunt.

Fred's Brim said...

anybody else lose the game?

Fred's Brim said...

hmm there it is

Fred's Brim said...

David MURPHY!!
(said in a Dave Chappelle as Rick James voice)

Fred's Brim said...

yikes, Rangers taking no prisoners

Dusty Baker said...

Orel said "Weird...AL"

Fred's Brim said...

I think Darling is combining all of the Molinas with that playoffs comment

Dusty Baker said...

5-0 lead - what can go wrong?

Fred's Brim said...

I switch trains every day in the station where "Fat" was shot

Ham-on

Dusty Baker said...

Same faces every day but you don't know their names Party people going places on the D-train

Steve Sax said...

I hate the Giants!

Dusty Baker said...

How're those robs turning out, Spanky?

Fred's Brim said...

Berkman you slug

Josh S. said...

5-1 Rangers. Yankees win!

Dusty Baker said...

Commercials driving me to pick up my beer pace. Can they just run the "Your culture is primitive yet so funky" ad over and over, because it's the only one I like.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Josh Hamilton has walked three times already? Yeesh.

Fred's Brim said...

damn - Swisher totally misplayed that but got lucky

Fred's Brim said...

Jeter caught Jetering on that one

Fred's Brim said...

score til they bleed!

Fred's Brim said...

nice job, Phil, thanks for playing

Fred's Brim said...

Yo Spank! what's the status of those robs? They ready yet? I'll knofe a fool for a half rack

Fred's Brim said...

200/2

Spanky said...

Got caught up in some bullshit. Just going to start the coals. But the Haterade is about to start flowing.The robs look AWESOME in their marinade. I'm about to orgasm just watching.

Dusty Baker said...

Haterade status: increasing with each successive Auburn score.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Y'all
Just passing through. As they say in this part of the world "fuck a bunch of yankees" especially Robinson Cano.

Fred's Brim said...

howdy MB - can I have your ribs?

Fred's Brim said...

@DB that'll help

This game is turning into a Pac-10 game

MeanieBreanie said...

Howdy FB - This girl loves ribs but I'm willing to share. Are you starving with Mrs. FB being away or are you one of those men who can find their way in a kitchen?

Fred's Brim said...

hehe I am decent with a skillet. I made a pretty good hot turkey sammich earlier today! But I will be stepping out later for a heaping plate of pulled pork and maybe some brisket

MeanieBreanie said...

DB what is the hogs score? I saw the quarterback got knocked out.

Spanky said...

T-minus 10 minutes for take off

Fred's Brim said...

you punkass Rangers, cut the shit!

Spanky said...

Hey Hey Meanie in the house!

MeanieBreanie said...

Good for you FB. It's been my experience that men are either whizzes in the kitchen or hopelessly horrible.

MeanieBreanie said...

Yes the bitch is back for at least a little while.

Spanky said...

I'm a whiz in the kitchen but hopelessly horrible in fantasy football

Fred's Brim said...

Ted Roof was our terrible head coach for almost 5 years. He was a combined 6-45, with consecutive 1-11, 0-12 and 1-11 seasons

MeanieBreanie said...

Ditto Spank!

Spanky said...

I'm still not comfortable with this lead.

Dusty Baker said...

37-35 Auburn. No one is playing defense. Mallett knocked out of the game but his backup has 3 TD passes now. *gets another Sam Adams*

Fred's Brim said...

That stupid Juke commercial again?
Did DB chug his beer?

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

This game (Hogs) is turning into an NBA game.

Dusty Baker said...

I should have just gotten two beers from the fridge to begin with.

WTF is a Juke? What a lame god damn name.

MeanieBreanie said...

As we all know it ain't over till it's over. I'm staying sober for this one. I can't risk choking on Scotch again. However, if the Rangers choke again I may be chugging it.

Fred's Brim said...

I am generally pretty lazy in the kitchen, but can step up when needed. I am planning a sour cherry crisp this week

Crosby, Stills and Nash - Helplessly Hoping

Spanky said...

Now I got that fucking Elton John song in my head. Thanx Meanie

Fred's Brim said...

I think these Hogs can score more than the Joe Klein Hogs

MeanieBreanie said...

FB - Hats off to good taste in music and desserts. I much prefer reservations.

Dusty Baker said...

TOUCHFUCKINDOWN ARKANSAS!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

holy shit what a play!!!
OINK OINK OINK

Spanky said...

Gotta go slap some pork. I'll be bahck.

Dusty Baker said...

Now I got that fucking JOE KLEIN guy in my head. Thanx FB.

Fred's Brim said...

then he'll make some ribs

*badumtish*

MeanieBreanie said...

Whoo...Pig...Sooie!

DB - I learned that from one of my best friends from Little Rock. She was Miss Sadie Hawkins back in the day. (To this day she will not admit she is from there nor will she ever go back).

Fred's Brim said...

2 more! Hogs gonna win this one going away

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Tend those robs, too!

Fred's Brim said...

The Chick-fil-a cows partying to Dazz by Brick. nice

Dusty Baker said...

That's right, MB!

Heh...Sadie Hawkins dances. I used to not go to those all the time.

MeanieBreanie said...

I'm hoping this will be the weekend for Texas teams. The Longhorns rolled over Nebraska, TCU is rolling over BYU, Rangers are leading, and the Cowboys play tomorrow. It's about time we get back on track.

Fred's Brim said...

At least Nebraska is losing

*sigh*

to Texas

MeanieBreanie said...

DB - I was probably behind the gym smoking it with you. Since I went to a different college I know nothing about Sadie Hawkins. My friend has always been and still is very purty. I'm sure that's what got her elected. She is also going on the infamous Napa trip.

Fred's Brim said...

the D lines for both of these teams are getting blown up

Fred's Brim said...

Napa trip?
Dare I ask?

Dusty Baker said...

Little Rock up in Napa! Better keep a close eye on that one.

Fred's Brim said...

yes, Rangers fans, the Yankees do suck

Fred's Brim said...

better cordon off the area so no innocent bystanders are hurt!

Dusty Baker said...

Wilson --> Childs

What a friggin' past. My god.

MeanieBreanie said...

FB - Napa won't be for a while. Starting this month into next year a number of my friends including myself are having milestone birthdays. Each one of us is doing something special to commemorate. The first one falls Halloween weekend in New Orleans. It will be a long weekend of revelry and debauchery. My friend is having a big celebration Halloween night at Galatoire's.
(Cries because I was offered premium tickets to Saints/Steelers game which is also at the same time).

Mine is going to be in Napa with MB and 5 of her closest gal pals. We are going to rent a limo and hit a number of wineries one day, spa day another, and my birthday dinner will be at The French Laundry. The rest is tbd :~)

Fred's Brim said...

oh no
fuck Auburn, you fakeass alabama

Dusty Baker said...

That's awesome that you have the French Laundry lined up, MB! Have been there twice.

Dusty Baker said...

PLEASE BE DOWN

Dusty Baker said...

Auburn = Alabama Lite

Dusty Baker said...

DOWN MOTHERFERS!

MeanieBreanie said...

DB - Aside from pricey, what did you think? One of my friends attended Le Cordon Bleu so she is dying to go there.

Fred's Brim said...

@MB I take it tbd stands for "to be debaucherous"?

that all sounds awesome. I hope when I turn 25, my friends and I do something like that too :)

Dusty Baker said...

Come on refs, you owe us one!

Fred's Brim said...

get out of this, you stinkin Rangers

MeanieBreanie said...

Oh FB - You are so charming and forever my friend. I see why Mrs. FB fell for you. She is a very lucky girl!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

USC beat the team who beat the team who beat the team who beat Nebraska!

Spanky said...

2 to 1 odds MB ends up thrown in a french quarter gutter puking her fucking brains out.

Fred's Brim said...

WOW big K of Canooo!

MeanieBreanie said...

Rangers dodged a bullet.

Fred's Brim said...

4 to 1 odds MB ends up singing on the piano at Pat O'Briens.

Fred's Brim said...

@MB Mrs FB got it goin' on :)

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

FL is amazing. If you are an adventurous eater, get whatever is the chef special. The other resto I like up there is Greystone (the CIA's w

Actually for the quality of restaurant, it's not that pricey. Resto prices in the area are better than you would think because there is so much bounty nearby and in central valley.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh
there's time for 2 more TDs each

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Mrs FB got it goin' on IN FLORIDA!

#partytime

MeanieBreanie said...

Most likely MB will crawl across the street from Galatoire's with her friends to The Old Absinthe House. From there who knows. If necessary, I will have a designated body guard to protect me from the advances of old, creepy, and ugly men.

I've done the Quarter many times and it has done me. Somehow I have always managed to survive ;~)

Dusty Baker said...

I have lots of fond non-memories of The Old Absinthe House.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB #partytime for me or her?

#both

MeanieBreanie said...

DB - It's one of those places you love or hate. For my friends and I, it is a bit of a tradition.

Fred's Brim said...

Frenchy gives it a ride but it came up a beard short

MeanieBreanie said...

Gotta leave for a while. Come on Texas do me proud!

Ciao for now.

Fred's Brim said...

seeya MB

Fred's Brim said...

65? good lord

Fred's Brim said...

just run the ball, Hogs

Fred's Brim said...

why oh why did I say Arkansas would win going away?
I am sorry DB. I never should have said that

Fred's Brim said...

i've never played real football, but getting your helmet ripped off must hurt like hell

Dusty Baker said...

This loss is not on you, FB.

Looking at you, "defense."

Fred's Brim said...

the Yankees are going to come back and win this going away

Dusty Baker said...

I am going to run out of beer going away.

Fred's Brim said...

I am gonna force my kids to throw left handed

Fred's Brim said...

great stop by Kinsler

Spanky said...

You don't even want to know whats going on in my grill. Shit is already falling off the bone and it has only been like 40 minutes.

Marinate that motherfucker overnite peeps!

Fred's Brim said...

that would be an 8 on The Kinsler Scale
