Game 41 Thread: May 15 vs. D'backs, 1p

Ted Lilly (3-3, 4.67) vs. Ian Kennedy (3-1, 3.23).

Friday's opener was a 7p start, and we scored four runs (and won). Saturday's game was an odd 4p start, and we scored zero runs (and lost). So with today's 1p start, will we continue the trend and score -4 runs (and probably lose twice)? Those pesky Diamondbacks, keeping us tantalizingly close to .500, but not quite there.

Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

With this lineup, there's no way we can lose.

Oh, I'm sorry, that's supposed to be "can't."

Josh S. said...

What's the opposite of a fantasy team?

Dusty Baker said...

45!

Dusty Baker said...

Lots of LHWG yummy goodness - and some LHBGs, too!

Was going to walk up to this game but seeing the lineup, I'm not inclined.

Why is the Civil Rights Game not held on or around Jackie Robinson Day?

Dusty Baker said...

Selig is on PHI and ATL broadcast now. Asked re LA situation. Can't give time frame. Being thorough. Report back when investigation comes to conclusion. Hopes it's sooner rather than later.

No meat there. Was hoping he'd throw us a bone.

Let's hope the investigation goes longer than the next pay period so MLB can pay it then take over the team.

Dusty Baker said...

Kids get a free Loney BP jersey today. Wait, Loney practices batting?

karina said...

I'm always up for an Indy reference.

Epale everyone! can you be optimistic? who know, today a winning streak might start, why not?

Neeebs said...

I think we will win today. Not because we are good, but because we are playing the dbacks.

Paul said...

I used that same logic with the Padres and Cubs.

Dusty Baker said...

I will try, Karina. You know I have pledged to say one positive thing per game thread. I have to work one up for today.

Steve Sax said...

The return of Castro.

Viva Cuba, I suppose.

karen said...

Following on Dusty's pledge, my one optimistic remark is that it's not raining.

Thats positive, right??

Steve Sax said...

This morning, I was sure this game would be rained out.

It is, however, a picture-perfect beautiful day here in the city.

God loves the Dodgers!

MR.F said...

Wotcher, everybody!

karen said...

What's up Mr.F!

karen said...

Teddy gets through the first with a little defense behind him.

Steve Sax said...

First and second, none out for Ethier

Steve Sax said...

....aaaaand, Andre Ks.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa now, Vinny!

Steve Sax said...

runners advance though, so i suppose it's as good as a sac

NicJ said...

Loney up.

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Kemp works an 0-2 count into a walk. Bases juiced for Loney.

Shit or get off the pot, FJL.

Steve Sax said...

One pitch fly out for Loney, who can't even score the run.

Shit.

Steve Sax said...

Here comes Dioner Navarro to let Kennedy off the hook completely

Steve Sax said...

This team is so frustratingly suckable, it is painful.

Steve Sax said...

Dioner strikes out

I FUCKING HATE THIS LINEUP AND HATE THIS TEAM AND HATE HOW IMPOTENT THEY ARE

Dusty Baker said...

Loney's Achilles uses to be the GIDP. Now it's GIDP and weak pop fly.

NicJ said...

This team is a lot easier to watch if you just assume they will lose.

Steve Sax said...

Lilly with a leadoff walk to start the second inning. Why the hell not, after watching his teammates let his ass down like that?

NicJ said...

See just like that.

karen said...

Well SHIT Teddy!!

NicJ said...

Haha oh shit.

Fred's Brim said...

what the fuck is wrong with you, Lilly? Absolutely nothing, this what you've always done, you shitbag

Fred's Brim said...

3 years

Dusty Baker said...

Navarro has just been fucking putrid. Questionable defense and nothing offensively. I would look up his offensive stats but I know it's something in the range of the reverse of Avagadro's number.

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe would have had that

karen said...

Finally 1 out.

Fred's Brim said...

and hi everybody, you are not shitbags

Dusty Baker said...

FB, your last two posts taken together made me laugh so hard I spit out a little bit of Dos Equis. That is both rich and cathartic.

Dusty Baker said...

Still trying to think of something positive to say.

Fred's Brim said...

Loney and Navarro - see what he did there? They let you score runs on that

Neeebs said...

3 years of Lily. Lovely. Ned you are a genius.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Fred's Brim said...

@DB glad this team could create some enjoyment. They aren't do much for me, though.

I was ok after yesterday for some reason, but this shit really bother me

Dusty Baker said...

This team has stolen FB's grammar!

Fred's Brim said...

grammee escap me tooday

Dusty Baker said...

Yesterday's game really bothered me. Today's game is really bothering me.

Not happy.

Dusty Baker said...

STOOPID COLLETTI STEALED FRED'S BRIM GRAMMER!

Fred's Brim said...

I am glad Vin has no trouble talking about haw bad they stink at hitting

Fred's Brim said...

Can Chad Billingsley play left field today? We need his bat in the lineup

Dusty Baker said...

These cuts LIlly is taking ate much better than many of our regular hitters.

Fred's Brim said...

at least we cleared the pitcher

Steve Sax said...

I cannot watch this game. I don't want to start punching holes in walls on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

F'ing A, Dodgers, your suckitude knows no bounds.

Fred's Brim said...

that Jack in the Box steak sandwich makes me feel uneasy. Something tells me I want it, something else tells me no

Dusty Baker said...

I agree with your pain, Sax. On the other hand, I'm strangely drawn to this game, the same way one slows down to look at a bad accident on the side of the road.

Fred's Brim said...

don't bother, Saxy. You'd be better off hammering tacks into your toenails

Dusty Baker said...

Hey FB, when are you getting your tix for your August sojourn to the Ravine?

Keep me in your plans; definitely up for catching some games with you.

karen said...

I usually save my hate for the gnats, but I have to say I really hate Stephen Drew.

Dusty Baker said...

Too bad that errant bat didn't knock Dinner Navarro out of the game.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

There's plenty of hate to go around. Let it flow.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to start throwing at people.

Cc: Spanky

karen said...

Vin has come as close as he can to just saying Ted Lilly really sucks.

karen said...

I'll bet we're going to see the new kid out of the bullpen today.

Dusty Baker said...

We're on the scoreboard.

(Karina, this is my positive statement for the day. It's the best I could do)

Fred's Brim said...

how can we win when Dre and Matty aren't getting hits. Jamey Carrol is our best player right now

Fred's Brim said...

Where is John Lindsey?

Fred's Brim said...

@DB - haven't gotten any tickets yet but I am thinking the Phillies games on August 9th and 10th. I am also thinking one of the Astro games later that week because I will need another game after getting shutout in the Phillie games

What's the most appropriate way to get tickets? Part of me wants to buy them directly from the team to support them directly. I also want to say eff you and buy them from Stubhub or a broker

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy - will the SOSGfest be anywhere near the second week of August? A 20-games Under party?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Wait, this isn't the OKC/Memphis thread?

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC, because those blue shirts make OKC look like a Kansas game at Phog Allen.

Orel said...

"He's been one ball and no strikes on everybody except Nancy Bea Hefley."

— Vin, on Ted Lilly. NICE!

Fred's Brim said...

hate, karen, hate!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

SoSGFest might as well be renamed Masochists Anonymous.

MR.F said...

Why do we suck so much?

MR.F said...

(cries)

karina said...

*sighs*

I can't say anything positive :(

karina said...

wait, I can say something positive:

I enjoy watching Aguilas star Gerardo Parra play.

*cries*

Josh S. said...

We suck-diddly-uck.

In other news, I'm posting this from a Nook Color my office lent me. Not sure I like it. Kinda clunky.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Gerard O'Parra? He sounds like a nice Irish boy.

karina said...

@Czar hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha believe me there's nothing further from a Santa Barbara del Zulia native than being Irish...maybe, when it comes about drinking, they could give a run to the Irishmen's money.

*ps: don't know anything about Parra's drinking habits*

NicJ said...

Did vin just say "beer and skittles?


ONE OF US!!
ONE OF US!!

Fred's Brim said...

did the win knock that down?

Fred's Brim said...

wind

karina said...

do you remember when it was exciting to see Kemp, Ethier and Loney opening an inning?

we were happy and we didn't know we were :(

Josh S. said...

I think her wig is on sideways.

karina said...

this makes me laugh:

whitesoxski Rob Warmowski
There's just Too Much Paranoias. RT @CSNChi_Beatnik: Pierre treats another flyball like Space Junk, but holds on. 8th is over.

Fred's Brim said...

Urine walks? Who dosed me?

Fred's Brim said...

don't swing, Jay!

Fred's Brim said...

nobody listens to me

Steve Sax said...

Navarr-O: 0-for-3 with 2 Ks. You can't spell Navarr-0 without a big fat 0.

karen said...

FB--I think this game dosed you.

karina said...

I'm listening, Fred

Steve Sax said...

no Posada in the Yank-Mes' lineup

Steve Sax said...

Russell Martin is batting .245, still almost sixty points higher than Dioner

Steve Sax said...

(and ten points better than Rod Barajas)

Steve Sax said...

SoSG Fest 2011 may be a snorkel party, we'll be so far underwater

karina said...

@Sax and how many extra base hits does my son have comparing with Barajas and Navarro?

*cries*

karina said...

100!

Steve Sax said...

Hey party people, just checking: how many of y'all are around these parts for the Fourth of July?

Steve Sax said...

and there goes Ethier's on -base streak, right?

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 2:54p: a Nook? I thought you alrady had a kindle? Are you platform agnostic, or just ridiculously rich? Or both?

Josh S. said...

@Sax: It's a loaner from work. I'm seeing how well. It plays with ebooks checked out from libraries.

Josh S. said...

That should have been one sentence, not two.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet shit-sucking jesus we lick rim.

Steve Sax said...

Got. It.

Steve Sax said...

we can't even say "sweet licking deJesus" anymore

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, Josh, Mr LA SC: are you here over the fourth holiday?

Steve Sax said...

(anyone else as well)

David said...

Now would be a good time for one of those Barajas homers

Steve Sax said...

who the hell is Javy Guerra, PH with the game on the line as the tying run?

Steve Sax said...

(oh, it's Rod Barajas...

...find and replace "Rod Barajas" in prior comment)

Josh S. said...

I think so. Nothing booked at the moment.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

I'll be at Nationals Park on July 4th.

David said...

Now would be a good time for Sands' first major league home run

NicJ said...

Why didn't the runners at least tag up!?!

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Ticket master can suck balls. Recommend Stub Hub bc one can pick specifically where one wants to sit (obviously based on availability).

Steve Sax said...

all we need is one pin, jerry (if a pin = a home run)

Josh S. said...

Massive pop for a foul ball. Crazy.

David said...

CRAP

Josh S. said...

BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: Hmm...we may have to have multiple dates here. Kinda like Prince at the Forum.

Steve Sax said...

it's all over but the heartache

MR.F said...

Humbug.

Dusty Baker said...

Planning something around a major holiday can often be problematic for a lot of folks...

Dusty Baker said...

Steve Lyons is PISSED at our lack of offense and isn't afraid to say so in the after game show.

Steve Sax said...

post-game thread up. sigh.
