Game 12 Thread: April 13 @ Giants, 7p

Ted Lilly (0-1, 6.00) vs. Jonathan Sanchez (0-1, 2.53).

We've read about Lilly's competitive streak, so this wubba-wubba* game would be a fine opportunity to discover if Better Off Ted can translate his intensity into Giants-beating results.

*Why yes, that is Portia de Rossi.

The Dodgers already beat Sanchez at Dodger Stadium — and really, any team that can hand Tim Lincecum a loss followed by a no-decision should be capable of taking this series.

Andre Ethier is beginning to heat up, and we know Matt Kemp will continue playing like he's in his walk year (which he isn't; he becomes a free agent in 2013). The pitch Kemp formerly couldn't resist, the slider down and away, is currently bedeviling James Loney, who figures to see (and swing at) plenty of them from the lefty Sanchez.

Also, Casey Blake is scheduled to start tonight, which should get Aaron Miles out of the lineup. Already the Beard's contributing!

It's been hard to figure out this 2011 Dodgers squad. For every two games they grind out, they go belly-up for one. There has been some true meeting of potential, and then some truly uninspired play from some uninspiring signings. A victory tonight would help tilt the balance toward the hope that this team can compete.

Orel said...

Guess I was wrong about Miles. D'oh!

Paul said...

Miles away from a hit.

Fred's Brim said...

fuckFuck fuckFuckFUCK!

How the hell did I miss this today?!?

He was right around the corner from my work!
SON
OF
A
BITCH!
I feel like I've failed you all

MR.F said...

D'oh!

You should check out Lez Zeppelin!

Fred's Brim said...

I actually know the little blonde Lez on the right. She's not that lez

Fred's Brim said...

Son of a double bitch - they updated the page. John Oates was there at 12:30 today!

MR.F said...

I'm not surprised FB. I figured they just couldn't resist using a terrible pun. Something I'm sure we'd all approve.

Josh S. said...

Blake at first just isn't the same without Martin at third.







(That's a good thing, btw.)

Orel said...

Russell Martin just doubled.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RT @jillpainter: The #Dodgers axed their half-price alcohol promotion for six games. They will still honor half-price food and sodas those games. Good start.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Wandy Rodriguez is not a very good pitcher.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I am officially on the badge wagon.

Soriano homer gives me my sixth.

Fred's Brim said...

Troy Tulowitzki is murdering the Mets tonight. He's a triple away from a cycle through 5. Dingers are leading 4-3

karina said...

Epale everyone!

@Fred's Brim: are you saying girls can't rock?

Josh S. said...

You haven't lived until you've heard Jose Mota try to pronounce Shin-Soo Choo.

Dusty Baker said...

Hope you're happy now, Sax. Full price beer.

Culero! Culero!

Paul said...

Little known fact, James Loney has not hit a homerun since Hall & Oates had a hit song.

Orel said...

I can't go for that.

Paul said...

How do you do the badges thang?

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Do I get a badge if Matt Holliday takes one in the nutsack?

No Hope For Loney said...

Epale,Mang!

Booze:check
Pizza in the oven:check
Vin on the tube:You bet your ass

killKillKILL

Paul said...

Great game on local digital channel that directtv doesn't get so I am blacked out.

Fred's Brim said...

@karina I would never say that! I was just saying that the girl on the right (Meg) was not really a lesbian :)

karen said...

Hello, Everybody!

HATEHATEHATE

Dusty Baker said...

Why did you go postal on that pizza dough, NHFL?

karina said...

@Paul on gameday, there''s a row of icons at the bottom of the interface. Just hit on the second icon right to left and you'll discover a world of goodness.

MLB offers fans a badge when a hitter accomplishes something previously established.

Be careful, rumor has it it's like hard drugs.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Heart is a great band.

karina said...

@Fred's Brim *shakes head*it's not funny!

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, don't knock hard drugs.

Dusty Baker said...

Uh-oh, FB getting the PC stinkeye.

Dusty Baker said...

That was some weak-ass shit to start the game. Meek.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

No, Meek plays for the Pirates.

Fred's Brim said...

I am not sure what I said

No Hope For Loney said...

@ Dusty

It disassembled when it popped out of the tube. I tried to re-knead it but to no avail.I blew up with a nice set of curse words and threw that shit like Bo Jackson did a baseball.

No Hope For Loney said...

Stupid Loney

karina said...

For the record, whoever thinks girls can't rock, should remember about the one and only Patti Smith.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck I thought that was fair.

No Hope For Loney said...

Heart rocks harder than Patti Smith.

karina said...

On the chair, Vinny!

my first game with Vinny of the season! <3

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Heart kicks Patti Smith's ass.

karen said...

I know it is only the first inning but already I am nervous.

karina said...

Spank, are you trying to pick up a fight? bad night, because Vinny is on and nothing can bother me...excepting Rowand scoring a run.

Dusty Baker said...

Can we just have Heart and Patti Smith do a naked jello wrestle to see who is better?

No Hope For Loney said...

I almost $!@# my pants

Dusty Baker said...

Let's everyone try to ruin Karina's perfect night with off color and/or sexist statements.

*ducks*

Orel said...

Glad to see Lilly bringing his "A" game tonight.

karen said...

Huff makes the catch. Drat.

karina said...

a) Patti Smith wouldn't do a jello fight, that's below her.

b) Let's say you guys are right and she doesn't rock BUT she still rocks way much more than you both.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Uribe homer. Calling it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I never said Patti Smith doesn't rock. I just said Heart was better.

Fred's Brim said...

heh. I started this somehow but honestly I didn't mean to and am not sure what I did

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Eh. Close enough. Baby steps, Uribe, baby steps.

No Hope For Loney said...

@ karina 7:31PM

No,you didn't!

No Hope For Loney said...

Go deep,Rod!

Fred's Brim said...

why would you go to second on that throw?

Fred's Brim said...

fat and lazy

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's no good.

Fred's Brim said...

Three years of Lilly and Uribe?

(cries)

Josh S. said...

@Orel: A for aerial.

Fred's Brim said...

Dre, what were you doing?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What the fuck?

karen said...

I don't like this

karina said...

*sighs*

Josh S. said...

I just got a "Fuck this shit!" badge!

Fred's Brim said...

And Teddy, ol'boy, that was Mike Fontenot who just hit a double off you

karina said...

let's take a deep breath and remember the game is on the second inning.

Dusty Baker said...

Lilly did bring his "A" game: A as in Always give up early runs.

No Hope For Loney said...

Belated:

FUCK

Josh S. said...

What happened to trying to throw a guy out at the plate?

Dusty Baker said...

Let's take a deep breath and....good god, Frankie, did you just poot?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Teddy just needs to retire Aaron "Andy Gump" Rowand.

Dusty Baker said...

Rowand may be successful but at least I can make fun of the lamest batting stance ever.

Dusty Baker said...

Miles will draw a walk. Lilly Hr to tie it up. Book it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Take that, Gump!

No Hope For Loney said...

The sight of that cup was making me want to puke.Just like the sight of Dre playing defense.

Orel said...

This doesn't feel like one of those games where our starting pitcher recovers after a shaky start.

Josh S. said...

I'm gonna show Rowand's batting stance to Lucas when it comes time for toilet training.

Paul said...

@Karina

Thanks! You rock!

Fred's Brim said...

@Josh I am not sure what Dre was looking at there. It was almost as if he assumed Belt would stay at third

Paul said...

@Dodgers

Score some runs!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Blind squirrel finds a nut.

Fred's Brim said...

terrible
execute, dammit!

Fred's Brim said...

pathetic
what was up with that angle?

No Hope For Loney said...

10 million a year and the mofo can't bunt.

karen said...

Rally!

Fred's Brim said...

i was so hoping Huff was going to dive for that

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WITCHCRAFT.

No Hope For Loney said...

Come on Blake.Do something

Mr. Customer said...

Seems like we're starting out every AB 0-2

Mr. Customer said...

Shite.

Fred's Brim said...

yuck

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ach.

No Hope For Loney said...

I'll buy you a wig if you hit it out, Dre!

Fred's Brim said...

Dre was so far behind that one

Mr. Customer said...

Useless

Fred's Brim said...

blech

Orel said...

What are chances Miles & Carroll will be on base again in this game?

Dusty Baker said...

Wash yer hair, Dre!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't quite know how that happened.

No Hope For Loney said...

U.G.L.Y.

Josh S. said...

Unacceptable.

karen said...

Let's see if Lilly can get out of the 3rd without giving up a run.

No Hope For Loney said...

Toma!

karen said...

Pubes hit by the pitch! WooHoo!!

Dusty Baker said...

Keep throwing at that asshole!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

I like the way you think.

No Hope For Loney said...

I say bean Burrell

Dusty Baker said...

Throw at Posey while he's at first!

No Hope For Loney said...

Throw at Bochy tambien.Fuck it.

No Hope For Loney said...

That was beautiful,man.

Paul said...

Throw at Cody Ross!!!

rbnlaw said...

Just got back from Super Mex for dinner. I had the bean Burrell

Josh S. said...

They don't get to retaliate. Har har!

rbnlaw said...

And what the fuck with youse guys?

Heart over Patti Smith? Patti, I married Fred "Sonic" Smith of the MC5, Smith?

Oh sure, Nancy Wilson is a great guitarist for a girl, but Patti has punk cred over the Wilson sisters.

*prepares for karina's onslaught due to "girl"comment*

Fred's Brim said...

Urine wanted to swing at that one

Fred's Brim said...

Vin calling him out now

karen said...

Really weak, Uribe

Paul said...

Throw at Uribe!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Dare we hope for two out madness?

Dusty Baker said...

If you kinda squint your eyes a little bit, not even much, Juan Urine looks a lot like David Ortiz circa April of 2010.

rbnlaw said...

Via Dylan Hernandez on Twitter:

"Without question, the #SFGiants press box leads the league in foofs per capita. Do they sell credentials at the concession stands?"

Didn't they fine Kobe for calling someone a "foof?"

Mr. Customer said...

Always with the 0-2

Fred's Brim said...

Lefties are gonna kill us all year, aren't they?

Mr. Customer said...

Hells yes!

Fred's Brim said...

HOTROD!!

Orel said...

B-ROD!

karen said...

RODNEY!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

In Rod we trust!!!!!!!

Paul said...

Yeah!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh shit, Rod swinging the lumber.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

Good point. But you're Dylan Hernandez isn't Kobe Bryant.

Orel said...

Rod Barajas now has as many homers as Russell Martin.

Paul said...

I'm watching on the MLB gamemix on the minibox so everyone looks like Miles.

Mr. Customer said...

*cries*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The hits just keep on coming for Aaron Miles.

No Hope For Loney said...

Oh Snap! Barajas hit a homerun!

rbnlaw said...

I like that Barajas guy.

Fred's Brim said...

It's time for me to go

@karina if I said something to offend you, I am sorry. I wasn't trying to. Please accept my apologies.
Have a good night

Steve Sax said...

Portia de Rossi is absolutely perplexing, bring an Arrested Development fan.

Some days, I think she's hot. Other days, not so much. What's the deal?

Paul said...

Funny thing was my dad called the Posey bean this morning. Didnt call the second one.

Paul said...

I agree with you Sax and I don't have an answer except lighting.

No Hope For Loney said...

Nice try,holmes.

No Hope For Loney said...

Where DID karina go? She insults me and splits.lol

rbnlaw said...

FYI: Moriama is lighting up the twitter

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@rbn - Are you trying to make me strike again?

No Hope For Loney said...

Along with the Laker caps they are giving away free matching knee braces at tomorrows game. Courtesy of Bynum.

Orel said...

NOW Blake singles.

Orel said...

@Sax: hair down = hot

No Hope For Loney said...

Welcome back,KKemp.

Paul said...

MLASF you can't strike twice in a week. We might question how sincere you are about strikes.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nobody questions my sincerity!

STRIKE! STRIKE! FUCK YOU, SCOTT WALKER!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to the game tomorrow night so can report back on the Lakers cap giveaway.

karen said...

I remember hearing Vin call Candlestick "the house of horrors" one night. Wasn't that just perfect!?

Dusty Baker said...

BEAN HIM!

No Hope For Loney said...

@ Karina

PATTI SMITH ROCKS!!!

Come back,fool.

No Hope For Loney said...

A fastball to the temple.Is that too much to ask for?

No Hope For Loney said...

FUCK YES!

No Hope For Loney said...

Shut up,Urine.

Josh S. said...

I'm no fan of Uribe's recent performance, but he held up there.

Paul said...

Wait was MLASF calling a strike on the pitch or is he striking again?

No Hope For Loney said...

mute

Mr. Customer said...

What'd they feed him today?

No Hope For Loney said...

FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Josh S. said...

Yes! I forgot Thames was on base!

karen said...

You're the man, Aaron!

Did I really say that??

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can go for Miles and Miles...

Paul said...

Maybe Miles is my 2011 Furcal. Furcal always had good games if I made a pregame insult.

No Hope For Loney said...

It's time for Nancy Bea!!!

Hold on. Let me eat some mushrooms first.

Mr. Customer said...

Hate that guy.

Josh S. said...

WE CAN'T HOLD LEADS FOR SHIT.

No Hope For Loney said...

SHIT SHIT SHIT!

karen said...

HORSE PISS

Josh S. said...

That was Ted's first homer of the season? That seems unpossible.

And there's the second. See my point?

karen said...

It's time for Ted to call it a night.

Mr. Customer said...

Son if a hurr. Can't we keep it inside the damn ballpark?

No Hope For Loney said...

fuck you lilly

Orel said...

This is what happens when Lilly gets past the fifth.

Josh S. said...

It's shitty hitter night!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck, has does Fontenot hit a homer?

Dusty Baker said...

Speaking of passing the fifth, beer status: Maker's Mark

Josh S. said...

Those aren't curveballs. Those are his fastballs.

No Hope For Loney said...

I'll be in need of Sweet Freedom if MacDonald comes in.

Dusty Baker said...

I was thinking same thing re Lilly; it seems like he'd already given up 16 HRs this season.

He may give up 14 more before the night is over.

Paul said...

Leave the shroom eating to Nancy B. She doesn't hang out with us bubblegumers

Paul said...

Sadly I think we are tapped out at 3 maybe 4 runs tops.

Dusty Baker said...

Nancy Bea the organist, or Nancy Bea the SoSG reader?

Paul said...

Infield pop up and a slow roller to the pitcher.

We are powerful.

No Hope For Loney said...

Dodgers are swinging the bat like if they are "I don't care if we lose"mode.

No Hope For Loney said...

^in

Paul said...

I am searching for a picture of Oates with a shaved head in anticipation of another loss.

karen said...

Now Matty. Now.

No Hope For Loney said...

Dre should shave his head. Or delouse.

Paul said...

The only other game is the Cards D bags game. It seems like it has been going on since this morning.

Paul said...

Come on Romo give Matty the Manny treatment.

No Hope For Loney said...

@ Romo

Just shave it all off.idiot.

No Hope For Loney said...

Damn

Paul said...

This fuckin sucks.
