Game 7 Thread: April 8 @ Padres, 7p

Ted Lilly (0-1, 7.71) vs. Clayton Richard (1-0, 4.50).

The Padres have a Clayton of their own, and he spells trouble for the Dodgers. In 2010, the left-hander had three starts against Los Angeles — and merely went 3-0, striking out 18 and allowing only five runs over 20 1/3 innings.

San Diego is off to a solid start, taking two of three from the Cardinals and splitting two with the Giants. Adrian Gonzalez has taken his bat to the 0-6 Red Sox, but the Padres always seem to find pieces, which this year include former Dodger Orlando Hudson.

Ted looks to rebound from his disappointing first start, that 10-0 shellacking the Giants put on the Dodgers last week. A strong showing would help restore confidence in the starting rotation, after what happened to (our) Clayton and Chad in Colorado.

I hope my avatar still has enough Oates power to will the Dodgers to victory.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: Sowing your wild Oates?

Steve Sax said...

Brian Wilson and his 40.50 ERA trying to hold the one-run lead for the Giants' Opening Day

Paul said...

I hope the Dodgers have their honey bunches of Oates before the game.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

I'm disappointed Fox Sports Latin America won't broadcast the game, they usually do when the Padres and the Dodgers play on Friday night but tonight, they'll have some Hooters girls special :(

Orel said...

Epale, Karina!

Orel said...

Will you be watching the Hooters girls special?

Paul said...

Neeebs is MCing that no?

Orel said...

Giants win. DAMMIT

Paul said...

Well at least they exhausted their bullpen

karen said...

I HATE the Padres!! Not like I HATE the mofo gnats but close.


hateHateHATE

karen said...

Oh and Epale everyone!!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm sad about Manny. What great talent but poor character he had in his career. I mostly took up for him as a Dodger, but overall have to put a jackass label on him.

Paul said...

I use to kinda hate the Padres but after their choke job last year I really hate them.

Paul said...

Oates doesn't care much for them as well.

karina said...

@Orel not exactly my scene ;)

Orel said...

Paul & Oates agree.

Paul said...

Zach Lee is the future of this organization!!!!

Paul said...

Paul and Oates are headed to Aptos. Check in with you all later.

Remember Oates will be with you...always.

Josh S. said...

Wait...the game is delayed because it's not raining?

karen said...

Epale Spanky!!

Game start postponed because of rain?? I thought it never rained in San Diego.

Spank said...

Awww shit. I forgot it is raining over here.

Spank said...

Epale,Karen!

Spank said...

*walks out the door*
*wonders where the rain at*

Steve Sax said...

Here's to Vma!

Josh S. said...

So, who do I have to give a reacharound to to get True Blue Stories released on DVD?

Steve Sax said...

Uh...not me.

Josh S. said...

WE GOT GAME

karen said...

Finally

Spank said...

O-Dog?!

Spank said...

3 up and 3 down

Steve Sax said...

This impatient-at-the-plate thing does not seem to be that effective.

Spank said...

That Padre line-up is an awesome spectacle. No way should we lose a game against them.

Spank said...

Give me a break.Come on Lilly.Don't fuck around.

karen said...

Either fan representing in the crowd.

karen said...

Lilly not showing me too much so far this year.

karina said...

it's his second start...I'm sure he'll improve, RIGHT?

Spank said...

We got out of that one,barely.

karen said...

Karina...We can only hope.

Spank said...

Awwww fucking rain

Orel said...

Wet Bison double!

karen said...

Bison loose in the rain!!

Spank said...

Rain delay SOON.

Orel said...

Dodgers were up when they called the rain delay, so they win. That's how it works, right?

karen said...

Freaking rain.

Spank said...

Shit. And I won't be able to watch another game until next week. FUCK

Steve Sax said...

Kemp leadoff double!

Spank said...

FUCK YOU CHARLIE STEINER!

Josh S. said...

The team with the most extra base hits when it starts raining wins.

karina said...

and now we wait...

cc: Josh

Josh S. said...

@karina Maybe we should try Finite Incantem.

Josh S. said...

Had to flip to the Angel game to feed the baseball craving. They're wearing their "Must kill the queen" uniforms.

Spank said...

nothing but clear skies over here.we'll see what happens

Steve Sax said...

This is the slowest game of all time

Steve Sax said...

Just saw the Office where Michael proposes to Holly. Well done, guys.

Dusty Baker said...

Why the fuck is it raining in San Diego?

Dusty Baker said...

You ruined it for me, Sax!

Just kidding. I gave up on The Office last season.

Dusty Baker said...

Gubment shutdown averted. I can get back to baseball now.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: Oh yeah, and Bruce Willis is a ghost, and Kevin Costner is actually a Russian agent. And the Crying Game chick with small breasts has a penis.

Spank said...

@ Saxy

Forrest Whitaker?

Steve Sax said...

@PS Dusty: you know what ruined the Office proposal info for me, was the Arnold Schwarzenegger issue of EW recently, which quoted Holly accepting his proposal in their TV section. So it was spoiled for me too.

Dusty Baker said...

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

@Spanky 9:02p: er, no.

Dusty Baker said...

game supposed to resume at 9:20.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

The Titanic sinks at the end!

Also, they make it back to Earth in Apollo 13.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 9:04p: yeah, tv proposals always make me Geary-eyed, too.

Dusty Baker said...

I think I ate a pound and a half of nan bread at dinner. I might have to get some surgically removed.

#vindaloo

Steve Sax said...

^teary-eyed

That joke would have been a lot better...Frickin' autocorrect

Steve Sax said...

Onion naan I hope

Dusty Baker said...

^naan

Dusty Baker said...

Regrettably, it was plain naan. Onion was available, but Mrs. Dusty balked.

Steve Sax said...

Dbacks spanking the Reds 13-1

Dusty Baker said...

^I got to take a base.

Spank said...

Reggie Smith was the shit.Switch hitting for power.No one cares.Pity.

Dusty Baker said...

Here's to ya, O-Dog. Much love.

Josh S. said...

I was just about to give up and watch Love & Other Drugs.

Snap Poll:
Dodgers or Catwoman boobies?

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Dodgers

Spank said...

OH SHIT WE GOT GAME AGAIN

Dusty Baker said...

STUPID can of paint. What a crap idea.

I did always like the "Hit It Here" sign at Camden Yards.

Spank said...

hedley

Spank said...

Come on. Kemp is on third. bring hin in

Josh S. said...

1 vote from Dusty for Dodgers, a vote each from Uribe and Loney for Catwoman boobies.

karen said...

SHIT


(cries)

Josh S. said...

And Thames makes it official! Boobies win!

Spank said...

Fuck wiping your eyes. Best get some contacts,Bitch!

Spank said...

hedley

Dusty Baker said...

Cracking me up, Spank.

Spank said...

I got April out of the way about 5 years ago.(bitch)

Fred's Brim said...

this is late, but that was unac-fucking-ceptable! The guy on third with nobody out has to score. Good teams get that guy home. Bad teams don't.

Fred's Brim said...

wow that was lucky as hell

Spank said...

I <3 Loney!

Fred's Brim said...

and hi everybody. Gonna be a late night here at the FB homestead. I hope I have enough vodka to keep me going

Dusty Baker said...

What FB said.

I mean, god damn...how hard is it? Embarrassing.

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, FB!

Spank said...

Yo,FB.

Orel said...

Hi, FB!

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Weekend booze thread on Facebook calling out for your vodka status.

Fred's Brim said...

do I need a lube-key to administer a reacharound?

awesome game thread by the way

Fred's Brim said...

@DB done and done

Spank said...

Luebke.That is a fucked up name.

Fred's Brim said...

was that Mike Cameron Maybin out there?

Steve Sax said...

Geez, I can't listen to this game. Man on third with none out and Uribe, FJL and Thames all whiff. Fucking A, dudes, at least put the ball in play and pretend you are trying.

(I know this comment is late but I'm working out to find an outlet for my aggression.)

Mr. Customer said...

Epale, y'all! Are we gonna play this one out, finally?

Dusty Baker said...

Rox lost. (Bitches)

Spank said...

@ Saxy

Are you watching tomorrows replay?

#waybehindfool

Spank said...

Excuse me .i'm drunk.

Spank said...

LONEY!!

Fred's Brim said...

holy moly nice catch! and way to blow up the mic! Mike D would be proud

karen said...

Hi FB!!

I Don't like this guy with the screwy last name. Bring back Richard.

Does anyone know if Davey is back yet, I haven't been able to see the 1st base coaching box

Fred's Brim said...

it looks frosty there in SD. What is it? 64 degrees?

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

New Beasties album dropping on May 3.

karen said...

Epale Mr. C!

Dusty Baker said...

It's 45 here in LA. I mean degrees, not malt liquor.

Fred's Brim said...

he karen! I was Davey back too. We stunk when he was gone!

Fred's Brim said...

@DB it's 45 here too!

Spank said...

45 here too but I had 100 degree days

Spank said...

I fucking Hate the Padres.

Fred's Brim said...

Throw strikes, stupid

karen said...

C'mon Teddy. Cantu cannot.

Fred's Brim said...

me too, Spank
they are a pain in the fuckin ass.

Fred's Brim said...

good job, Casey. You gonna homer next inning?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"Throw strikes, stupid"

That sounds a lot like my little league days.

Spank said...

That would have been a home run in boston.

Dusty Baker said...

"Throw strikes, stupid"

Also like my Little League days, and my dad was yelling it at me.

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

I've been getting my Dodger-Mets tickets for when the boys are in town in a few weeks. It has to be better than last year when it was 38 and windy for three straight days. Plus my pops is coming to town!

Spank said...

I bet in a million years,Beard would have never thought he'd be hitting 2nd for the Dodgers at 40 years old.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Casey - that's a 2-hitter for you!

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Dre, Saxy wants a badge!

Fred's Brim said...

take a goddamn pitch!

Dusty Baker said...

My god we cannot hit for shit.

Dusty Baker said...

Wash yer hair, Andre!!!

Spank said...

that's a #3 hitter for you.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We're not very good.

Fred's Brim said...

those foul-backs sound like an 808 boooom!

Fred's Brim said...

uhoh karen - no Davey still

Fred's Brim said...

keep taking, Matty

Spank said...

No excuses,Vin.

karen said...

FB...Those are the good days...taking in a game at the Yard with dad.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Juanny!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kemp draws a walk.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Uribe homer. Calling it.

Spank said...

Hit a homerun,you fucking GNAT!

Fred's Brim said...

quit stalling, wuss

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

The 808 kit drum makes the girlies get dumb.

Dusty Baker said...

I'll take it!

Fred's Brim said...

that'll do!

karen said...

@Dusty...I hate to say it but I thought the same thing about Dre's hair when the game started the first time.

We scored! We scored!!

Fred's Brim said...

@DB the girlies and FB

Spank said...

We scored. Dodger styles!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sure, why not.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hurry up and get the fifth in so we can win!

Fred's Brim said...

good bunt, Juanny!

Spank said...

Urine to Lugie.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Yeah I don't know what Dre is doing with that hair. Either not washing it or some major product.

Spank said...

can we just skip loney's at bat and go on to the next inning

Fred's Brim said...

@DB Mrs FB has a Beastie Boys tape she found at a thrift store. It's a short one from the Licensed to Ill era and has a combination of videos and concert footage. That's good stuff and all but at the end is a backstage segment where things get ill - lots of blunts, 40s and hands going down the pants of groupies. Good stuff

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fucking Loney.

Dusty Baker said...

Loney is the new Kemp

ps- Josh, how are those boobies?

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

I think I have that tape. (Tape!) Does one of the BBs sign some groupie's stomach with a marker and then run his hand...down there? Something like that?

Fred's Brim said...

@karen - you said it, re dad

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Loney has always been the new Kemp.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB that's the one! pure filth! How are they the same dudes that are trying to save the planet and Tibetans now?

not that different from us, I suspect

Fred's Brim said...

I bet it would be funny to see Loney play CF

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Pure filth, indeed! Vile!

(Makes note to convert from VHS to digital and watch soon)

Mr. Customer said...

I aspire to be like Yauch when I grow up.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon you stupid ump!
cmon you stupid pitcher!

Mr. Customer said...

I no longer have beard like a billy goat, however.

Spank said...

hedley

Fred's Brim said...

@Mr C - was that to break the losing streak? Because it just got Cameron Maybin a hit

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We are not in an ideal situation.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. C gettin rope ya'll.

Fred's Brim said...

San Diego, you can have the Clippers back, you punk bitches

Steve Sax said...

What is up with the Indians' red-stenciled "C" in MLB AtBat's scoreboard? It looks lame.

What happened to the script "I"?

Fred's Brim said...

the UCLA secondary? That's like the French army

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

Long gone, but there beard status is mostly a game time decision in the House of Customer. I can't take any credit or assume blame for the Maybin debacle.

Dusty Baker said...

Uncle Charlie makin' 'em look silly.

Spank said...

I fucking HATE the Padres!

FUCKING HATE

karen said...

A couple of gooood curve balls to strike out Hundly
