Game 26 Thread: April 27 @ Marlins, 9a

Breakfast is served!

Chad Billingsley (2-1, 4.13) vs. Anibal Sanchez (1-1, 3.55).

Anibal-Style Sanchez nearly threw a no-hitter his last time out, against the Rockies. The Dodgers have slidden (that's a word, right?) below .500 again. Do I go for the we're-so-going-to-lose-and-get-swept reverse jinx, or do I place my faith in Andre "Hit Streak" Ethier and Matt "The New Beard" Kemp? Decisions, decisions.

Spank said...

In n' Out for lunch. Food too,maybe.

Steve Sax said...

Loney shall not be named by the Spank.

Paul said...

*yawn*

If they lose before 12 pm Pacific time does it really count?

Paul said...

I'm telling you something big is gonna happen in this game.

Paul said...

From DHurrr: Casey Blake is probably DL-bound. Elbow is infected. Fever spiked last night, forced him to go to a hospital. #Dodgers



This can only mean on thing...Blake has gone zombie!!!

Paul said...

One not on....anyways.... run for your lives the zombie revolution is underway!!!

Fred's Brim said...

We gotta keep grinding, starting with the pitching and fielding

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Spank said...

Epale,Karina.

Spank said...

That was an uneventful top of the inning.

Steve Sax said...

1st inning for the dodgers

gwynn ground out
carroll line out
ethier fly out

(cries)

karina said...

@Sax save tears for later

(cries)

Spank said...

Eric Collins giving us the 411 on the weather. He's practicing for his next job as weatherman for the CW.

karina said...

you can hit, James, don't forget...

Spank said...

Loney is hitting .204! He is the King.

karina said...

@Spank even Kings have bad streaks :(

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo with one out for the Marlins :(

Steve Sax said...

four straight singles off of Chadley and we're already losing 1-0 in the second

karina said...

it's 4-0 now :(

Paul said...

I love Chadley.

Steve Sax said...

Down 4-0 already, and we're hitless through three. We're toast.

Paul said...

Dre single!!!

Spank said...

Dre Day!

Damm we suck.

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

WE GOT A HIT

and of course it's Andre Ethier, extending his streak to 24

Fred's Brim said...

we have to pitch better

Steve Sax said...

I don't know what's more exciting, Loney singling or Barajas' 3-run HR

karina said...

Barajas deals YAY!

Fred's Brim said...

Rodney swatting three run homers helps bad pitching

Paul said...

I thought Dre was suppose to be a leader this year?!? Psssh only 24? He doesn't understand baseball at all.

Steve Sax said...

@ karina 9:18a: are you saying I'll be crying later?

only if you break my heart.

karina said...

@Sax both in equal measure :)

Fred's Brim said...

we luck out and miss Josh Johnson - we have to win one of these games

Steve Sax said...

Loney has to double for me to get his badge

Steve Sax said...

dodgers down only 4-3. this will be a tease

Paul said...

Spanky's alter ego gets us back in it!!

Hope Chafley settles down.

Steve Sax said...

wow, chad's first two pitches to dobbs (leading off the fourth) weren't even close

Fred's Brim said...

Someone tell Chad it's a day game

Steve Sax said...

and of course, dobbs gets a 2-2 count...but walks

karina said...

@Sax well, game was too young to start crying, so we should keep tears for the last third.

and as you already know, my heart is yours...

Steve Sax said...

Joey Votto HR makes it 3-0 Reds, over the Brewers, with none out in the first

Steve Sax said...

@karina: oh, Eric Karros and Orel are gonna be jealous....

Steve Sax said...

well at least we got the force at second, i suppose

one out

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Chad

Steve Sax said...

nice mettle, Chadley

4-3 Fish through four

Steve Sax said...

Jonny Gomes steals a base and joins Sax's badge display case

Steve Sax said...

I'm at 37 badges

Steve Sax said...

i'm totally addicted

Steve Sax said...

50

Fred's Brim said...

I predict a badgervention for Sax sometime this season. What's rock-bottom? Watching each Yankee game hoping for a Phil Hughes strikeout?

Steve Sax said...

nice sac, Chad. DeJesus to second with one out. SCORE HIM

Steve Sax said...

Gwynn that does not get it done

DeJesus on third with Wide Eyes up

Steve Sax said...

FJL, 5 hits in his last 6 AB (all singles)

Steve Sax said...

Wide Eyes strands DeJesus. Dammit.

Fred's Brim said...

i wish I could look this up, but it seems like Carroll only gets hits with nobody else on

Steve Sax said...

@FB, I like that "Badgervention"

Steve Sax said...

@FB: Carroll could look that up for you...while he's looking at something else at the same time

Steve Sax said...

I thought karina digged herself some badges as well, no?

If karina does it, it must be cool

Fred's Brim said...

no doubt. my case is empty

Steve Sax said...

FB, I think it's just you and me in the SoSG bar at this point

Steve Sax said...

Marlins are yanking Sanchez after only 74 pitches? That's weird.

Fred's Brim said...

into the Florida bullpen, Sanchez is out for some reason

Steve Sax said...

As Neon Trees sang in their hit song, "Anibal": Oh oh, I want some more

Steve Sax said...

Andre pulls a Loney and Ks

Steve Sax said...

Kemp HR right here, I'm calling it

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy - I've been laying off the SOSG liquor for a while but it's nice to be back. I went on vacation and as soon as I did, we did well versus the Braves and Cubs while I was away so I didn't want to mess with any mojo by coming back here.

Steve Sax said...

come on Matt, get me a badge

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with an infield hit.
That was a frustrating out last year

Steve Sax said...

single for Kemp, I'll take it

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I want a burger.

Steve Sax said...

Fish have to pitch to Kemp with Loney protecting him

Steve Sax said...

Loney double would badge me (and floor me as well)

Fred's Brim said...

Matt survives a pickoff again

Fred's Brim said...

and Matty sneaks to second on a wild pitch!

Steve Sax said...

pretty sneaky, sis

karina said...

Sax, I'm totally obsessed like you with the badges! we could be on the pilot episode of "Badgervention"

Fred's Brim said...

Loney loneys

Steve Sax said...

3-2 count and Loney Ks. Sigh.

Two out, and here is Rodster

Steve Sax said...

Kemp sitting on second like a rabbit

Steve Sax said...

0-2 to Rod

Fred's Brim said...

Rod rods

karina said...

@Sax my heart was stolen by the three of you but you're the sweetest spot ;)

Paul said...

Barajas won't get a hit for another three games. But it will be a homerun.

Paul said...

You know who likes the sweet spot of the heart? Casey Blake. Zombies!!!!

Orel said...

SAY IT AIN'T SO KARINA

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: are you saying that because of his elbow infection?

Steve Sax said...

Oh no, here comes Orel, riding in on his white horse...

Steve Sax said...

one-out walk for stanton

Fred's Brim said...

Orel is a horse racist?

Fred's Brim said...

Does anybody have a picture of Casey's Popeye arm?

Fred's Brim said...

goddamn walks

Fred's Brim said...

I have seen wayyyy to much of Mike MacDougal the last few days

Steve Sax said...

Settle down Chadley, you got this

Fred's Brim said...

Near double-play, quick-ass Bonifacio beats the throw.
2 outs, time for a Marlins hit to infuriate me

karina said...

my sons, keeping my heart and head upside down since 2008...

karina said...

@Peter's Brim Orel is a blue prince!

Fred's Brim said...

Big K from Chawick, 3 outs

Fred's Brim said...

leadoff hit for Miles, now let's get him around!

karina said...

100!

karen said...

Erin Miles with the lead off hit!

Hello Everyone!

Fred's Brim said...

Miles to second on the bunt, Juan Uribe to pinch hit!

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Juanny, get him home!

Fred's Brim said...

ooh a balk! Miles to third!

Sac fly, please!

karen said...

Come on Uribe, you can do this

Fred's Brim said...

how boring did that just sound?
bunt, balk, sac fly? i'll take it if we get that run across

Fred's Brim said...

base hit, JUANNY!
tie game!

Fred's Brim said...

hi Positive Karen, nice timing!

Orel said...

Juan Uribe ties the game. That was...unexpected.

karina said...

URINE RBI! game's new!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yay Uribe!

karina said...

Sax, did you got the Weeks badge (MIL, 2B, double)?

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Jamey, let's get a hit with a runner on!

Fred's Brim said...

walks work, too!

Fred's Brim said...

Webb spun

karen said...

I think it's time for Andre to go yard on Choate

Fred's Brim said...

rats - could have used one there

karen said...

Well crap. Choate really has Dre figured out.

Jason said...

Morning.. er afternoon... er mornernoon everyone. Just settling into what looks to be a 30+ hour day at work. Could be worse ways to start off a day like this than streaming the game at my desk.

Collins and Lyons still suck, though.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes!

Fred's Brim said...

no walks!

rbnlaw said...

When does the game start?

Oh what! That's not right.

rbnlaw said...

Has Barajas passed Martin's HR mark from last year yet?

The last 2 years?

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Matty, get us going!

Fred's Brim said...

nice, Matty. Now go to second

rbnlaw said...

Nice AB, Matty.

Funny, Kemp and Barajas each have 5 HR's.

Kemp hitting .380; Barajas below the Loney Line.

Fred's Brim said...

why do you say that Bay Alarm promotion "when an opposing runner gets thrown our...." when we might be stealing? Who produces the radio show?

karina said...

@rbnlaw my son will be an All-Star this year, with another team

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

cmon James!

Fred's Brim said...

ball 4! 1st and second, nobody out
Lets get somebody home!

Fred's Brim said...

*does anti-double-play dance*

rbnlaw said...

Loney walked? Go figure.

Hey karina, if ends up at Pittsburgh, he won't be their worst batter. They have Brandon Wood for that title.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Rodney, get it done

rbnlaw said...

Gameday labled ball 1 a "sinker." Looked like it was above his head.

Fred's Brim said...

rats - that was useless

Aaron Miles basehit?

karina said...

@rbnlaw what did I do to you so you started bullying me?

Fred's Brim said...

take three pitches, Aaron

Fred's Brim said...

Rancho Dejesus!

Jason said...

Someone seems to have a bad case of the yips.

Fred's Brim said...

get him home, kid!

karen said...

Bases walked RA for the good guys

rbnlaw said...

Rancho Aladobo!

rbnlaw said...

karina,
Me? Bullying?
I was trying to put a brightside on FJL's lack of offense.

Hey, at least he's still battling!

Fred's Brim said...

WTF

take
a
goddamn
pitch

Jason said...

DeLoney

karina said...

De Jesus, was it too hard to wait for a second pitch?

rbnlaw said...

The shittiest of RBI's. The GIDPRBI.

Opportunity; wasted (almost).

rbnlaw said...

Oh, My mistake.

Opportunity completely wasted. I was looking at the 7th.

Nice going, DeJesus!

Steve Sax said...

Sweet deJesus, that sucked

karina said...

@rbnlaw I totally pictured him wearing yellow and black :(

karen said...

Karina--I love your avatar.When I had my daughter, it was nothing like this. Do you know how far along your sis/sis-in-law was when this sonogram was taken?

Fred's Brim said...

on to the 9th.
Let's get some runs, starting with a Thames HR

karina said...

@karen :_(

well,she had 20 weeks...but now my sister in law is at the hospital,she had contractions yesterday :( it seems Miranda is in a hurry to come out :(

Fred's Brim said...

just get on, Tony!

karen said...

Oh sista I'm so sorry. I'll keep Miranda in my prayers. My daughter was a preemie so I know how scared your sis must be. :(

Fred's Brim said...

crapcrapcrap - gotta go do an interview. please get us a win while I am away!

rbnlaw said...

karina,
They are very flattering colors.

*cries*

karen said...

Bottom of the ninth everyone. Fasten thine seatbelts!

karen said...

Freaking Dobbs

Paul said...

@Sax 10:49 see @Paul 8:22.

Basically yes Casey is a Zombie or in A Pre zombie stage.

karina said...

@karen thank you very much,sista.That's what we've been doing.

gotta go for a sec, hold on the fort.

Paul said...

Much like Mr. C's Lakehouse sequel screenplay this won't end well.

Steve Sax said...

Miles ensuring we will lose this game with an error. How Carrollesque.

rbnlaw said...

We're screwed.

Alex Cora said...

How bout them lakers?

Steve Sax said...

Charley passed a kidney stone for that Guerrier K (still one out to go, Steiner)

karen said...

That was a bit of a nerve wracking ninth

Alex Cora said...

Holycrap. We didn't lose In the ninth!?!

rbnlaw said...

Well, that was a pleasant surprise.

Paul said...

Time to score a run only to give up two in the 10th.

karen said...

DRE!

Alex Cora said...

MR. Walk off (kinda)!!!

rbnlaw said...

Whoop, there it is!

rbnlaw said...

Take note, IDJ!

Steve Sax said...

Ethier!!!!

Alex Cora said...

Yeah, paul, we need kemp to hit one out for the dodgers to possibly win.

Steve Sax said...

Charley called it as a fly ball until the very end, btw

rbnlaw said...

Really, if the rest of the team could just hit half as well as KempEthier, we'd be right up Colorado's tailpipe right now.


And in some cases, I mean "half" literally.

Paul said...

That Andre is a good hitter.

Steve Sax said...

Innnnnnteresting: Padilla warming up, not Brox

Steve Sax said...

@rbnlaw: I don't think I want to be up anyone's tailpipe

Jason said...

Well, this should be interesting.

Paul said...

I gotta bad feeling about this.

Alex Cora said...

ONE MORE TO GO!

Paul said...

So will Padilla's closer song be anything from Toad the Wet Sproket?

Alex Cora said...

I think brox pitched 3 games in a row, and that is why he isn't in. According to Donnie, he is still the closer...

Alex Cora said...

..until Kuo comes back..hehehe

Alex Cora said...

Finally a fricking win.

Jason said...

Making workplace party!

Alex Cora said...

Nice play by The Jesus.

Steve Sax said...

Niiiiiiice

Paul said...

We make party!!!!

Alex Cora said...

We're .500, We're .500!!!

karina said...

we make party!

rbnlaw said...

The funniest thing happened on Gameday.

It says the Dodgers won. Oh, what?

Paul said...

Watch out for zombies everyone.

Alex Cora said...

Either says that 3-3 on the road trip, is kinda of a success. Aim High, Andre!

Alex Cora said...

I hope we can sign Andre again.

karina said...

@rbnlaw yellow and black can be very stylish...and for bees, too :(

karina said...

200!
