Pistol Pete Reiser said...

And Tammy Faye Bakker!

Steve Sax said...

let's get this party started

Steve Sax said...

argh! No radio or television broadcast option on AtBat11

Gameday it is

Steve Sax said...

Lilly has 1 K and 0 H after two innings

Steve Sax said...

Casey Blake with the game's first hit

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Ubaldo/Lilly living up to all the hype folks.

Steve Sax said...

How is this for an imposing front end to our lineup

Furcal, .167
Blake, .125
Ethier, .071

Steve Sax said...

Lilly having more trouble in the third. One run already in (leadoff double followed by a single), still men at the corners with two out

Steve Sax said...

whoops make that three out, Barajas to Furcal CS

Steve Sax said...

Colorado with three hits in the third.

1-0 Rox after three

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Strike em out throw em out

1-0 Rox end of 3rd

The lineup has to improve, I'm being patient...

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Sax wins race to scoreboard. Getting a sandwich...

Mr. Doctor said...

@PPR

Probable line-up for the sandwich?

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Your basic turkey + cheddar + tomato + lettuce + mayo on wheat roll with Cool Ranch Doritos.

The missionary position of sandwiches.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

I need to go for sandwiches more often... we scored... coincidence?????

Steve Sax said...

Gimenez singles, takes second on a WP, and scores on a Juan Uribe double in the fourth inning (all with two out).

That's one-run Dodger baseball for you!

1-1 in the fifth

Steve Sax said...

@Pistol Pete Reiser 1:08p: I'm more of a provolone guy myself. Maybe havarti, too.

Not so much with the cheddah.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Sharp cheddar, not that mild crap.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Hot-sister-guy gets us out of the inning.

Steve Sax said...

Hawksworth allows a two-out triple to Gomez in the bottom of the fifth.

Steve Sax said...

Greg Reynolds grounds to short to end the threat

1-1 through five

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff single by Andre Ethier; here comes Tony Gwynn Jr to PH. One out, thanks to Blake's leadoff K (Casey Blake is now batting .111).

Steve Sax said...

@Pistol Pete et al: We Sons are big cheese fans.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp pops to short on the first pitch, two out

Steve Sax said...

Gwynn steals second! Way to go, Lopes!

Steve Sax said...

suddenly

my

gameday

is

moving



really






slowly

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

@ Sax 1:40
Does that really qualify as cheese?

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

RIP Gameday.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

5-1 good guys?

Jerry Sands is playing his way onto first base, folks...

Steve Sax said...

holy shit we scored four runs in an inning? let me read the recap

Steve Sax said...

Trayvon with a leadoff double to right field
XP sac bunt and reaches on an error, Robinson to third
Jerry Sands busts out a three-run HR
Eugenio Velez walks and steals second
DeJesus sacs Velez to third, one out
Ellis forgets he's Ellis and singles Velez home
Gwynn Jr. singles Ellis to third and takes second, still only one out
Sellers and Redding pop out in foul territory, each on the first pitch, for the final two outs (with two RISP).

Four runs in one inning? UNBELIEVABLE

Steve Sax said...

tim redding's gameday picture has a rodent hanging from his chin

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

@ Sax 2:32.
Saw that. Squiggied my monitor, it was still there.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

A HR and a three-bagger.

Jerry Sands... hope of the future.

Steve Sax said...

XP HR! 6-1 Dodgers

(Jerry Sands also triples with one out, but we can't score him.)

Steve Sax said...

Pistol Pete, it looks like it's just you and me here. How was that sandwich, by the way?

Steve Sax said...

@Pistol Pete, wanted to make sure you saw this post, an oldie-but-goodie from 2008.

One might think of this as an aged cheese post.

Steve Sax said...

@Pistol Pete: just wondering, is your favorite Dodger this year going to be Ivan DeCheeses?

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Kinda unsatisfying. Ya gotta get the tomato and the mayo together, the nice old lady that made my sandwich sometimes doesn't get that. It's important, though.

This offensive explosion is truly unexpected.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

@ Sax 2:43.

I can't believe no one commented on that posting. Slackers. Could have at least thrown out the "like I could buy all this cheese" line from the lottery commercial. No one posted "OK, who cut the cheese?"

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

@ Sax 2:45
No sir, Jerry Sandswich.

MR. F. said...

OK, who cut the cheese?

Steve Sax said...

we go to the ninth

the dodgers actually have a 6-1 lead

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers eke out another run (Ellis single, reaches second on a throwing error, then gets two sacs to come around to score).

7-1 going to the bottom of the ninth baby

Steve Sax said...

kenley is making quick work of the rox in the ninth

two out, the second of which was a three-pitch K

Steve Sax said...

two-out double, but now it's allllll over

DODGERS WIN 7-1

Steve Sax said...

Cheese for everybody!

Stupid work.
