Game 52 Thread: May 27 vs. Fish, 7p

Jon Garland (1-4, 4.75) vs. Javier Vasquez (3-4, 6.41).

Don't overlook these Fish. The Marlins, second place in the NL East by a game, came into the NL West-leading Giants' house on Tuesday and not only swept their sorry San Francisco asses (including an epic extra-inning Wednesday game that saw the Marlins give up four runs in the bottom of the ninth, but then come back to win it in the 12th), but also squarely and cleanly knocked Giant catcher Oyster Pubes onto the DL--possibly for the whole season--with an violent leg-breaking, ankle ligament-tearing collision that ended up scoring that 12th inning go-ahead run.

It's a deep and unfortunate blow for the Giants to lose Pubes this early on, and our thoughts go out to him for a complete recovery. In the meantime, though, we've got to worry about the ravenous, deadly Fish in town this weekend, starting with tonight's game. Let's hope our day off Thursday gave us time to prepare for a big haul. Or at least apply some proper sunscreen.

I know, you expected Marlins Mermaids references in this GT. Keep it in the pants. We've still got two more games to go in this series.

Hey you buncha drunks, get off Facebook and come on over to the GT.

Dusty Baker said...

O's playing the A's. Battle ofnthe teams with apostrophes that piss me off.

On another esoteric note, the logo letter between us and our opponents tonight can spell "ALF."

Mr. Customer said...

Somebody call for drunks?

Spank said...

Where's Sands?

karina said...

Epale everyone!

it's Paul's bday for those who don't know

Orel said...

Such as me. Happy birthday, Paul!

Steve Sax said...

Happy birthday Paul!

Here's to your boutique!

(hopes for another Beasties lyrics avalanche)

Spank said...

Epale,Karina!

What's with the Glenn Danzig avatar?

Dusty Baker said...

I don't mean to brag
I don't mean to boast
But I'm intercontinental when I eat French toast

Dusty Baker said...

I think my whole has been one long Beasties lyrics avalanche.

Steve Sax said...

I think your whole has been too!

Dusty Baker said...

^life

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe the next puzzle series puzzle could be to figure out the one Beasties lyric from their entire canon that I will not recite.

Spank said...

This sucks. I can't access my google account with my laptop but I can with the rec cpu. I may have to log in as a total different entity so excuse em moi.

karina said...

@Spank nope, it's the BAMF Neville Longbottom, can't wait for that movie!

Spank said...

FUCK!

Dusty Baker said...

At my local, Vinny!

Spank said...

Not you,Karina. My fucking computers.

Dusty Baker said...

Is your Apple II acting the fool again, Spank?

Spank said...

@ Dusty

It's acting the goddamn fool.

Steve Sax said...

Ethier, batting .311, is all mixed up, don't know what to do

Spank said...

Booooooo!

Spank said...

my shit is a beautiful disaster without the beautiful.

Spank said...

About fucking time,Loney!

karina said...

yay! I can see Loney is heating up!

karina said...

I'll call him King James tonight

Josh S. said...

My Twitter feed is messed up. It said Loney homered.

Spank said...

I'll still call him mutt.lol

Jason said...

At the SEA - BUY game and note the Dodgers scored. Pull out my phone to find out how and it says Loney HR. I'm being Punk'd, right?

Russell J. with a walk and a steal tonight. In retaliation, the Seattle catcher also walked and stole second. Burn!

Jason said...

^ uh, NYY

And, happy birthday, Orel?

Dusty Baker said...

Making me a little weepy for some old skool 311 there, Sax.

Jason said...

Douchee-mcyankee-fan sitting in the next suite has so far:

* Declared Robinson Cano the best player in baseball, right now (currently, 0-2, 1K)
* Threatened to fight anyone willing to argue his point that, historically, jitters have the worst average on a 2 and 2 count
* Loudly predicted that Teixeira will hit each pitch "out of the park" (he struck out swinging weakly at a ball in the dirt)
* Unironically announced his desire to have Jeter's babies.

Spank said...

@ Jason

Is he Billy Crystal?

Steve Sax said...

Guys, my GameDay is down again. It says Loney had a HR.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh 7:58p: wow, I had not ready your comment prior.

Great minds think alike

Steve Sax said...

would love a Mariners romp here

Steve Sax said...

would love a Dodgers romp even more

Jason said...

If you get a chance, check out a replay of the catch Franklin Gutierrez just made on a Swisher drive to center. Ex-Dodger farm hand done real good.

Steve Sax said...

Furcal is batting .130 and is in the leadoff spot.

Steve Sax said...

shit, just watched the video of that HR ball by Loney, and that was surprisingly deep in the Fish's pen (bowl?)

Steve Sax said...

@Jason, when Tex went yard, did the guy have a money shot?

Steve Sax said...

this is not good, mr. garland

two on, none out, top 6

Spank said...

Garland almost botched that throw to second on the double play. Focus,Fool.

Jason said...

@Sax

He was still too busy cleaning his pants from Jeter's at bat to notice.

Spank said...

Garland just erased Loney's home run. Asshole.

Steve Sax said...

shit. just when I thought we'd get out of the jam, rbi single for greg dobbs.

1-1 game.

Alex said...

Dammit.

Steve Sax said...

dammit garland, FOCUS

four-pitch walk to stanton

Orel said...

Did Vin just say "ironical"?

Steve Sax said...

"Furcla, still lost in space since his return from the disabled list,..."

--Charley Steiner

Steve Sax said...

^ Furcal

Steve Sax said...

Alex, your avatar is Oyster Pubes getting flattened? Dude, that's cold.

karina said...

I don't want to lose a game where King James homers :(

Alex said...

BOOM!

Spank said...

DRE DAY!!!!

HOMERUN1

Steve Sax said...

ANDRE!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Another one into the Fish Bowl!

Steve Sax said...

steiner got the HR call right

mark the date

Steve Sax said...

"A curveball that Vasquez would like to have back."

--Rick Monday, again stating the obvious.

Steve Sax said...

steiner got the kemp non-HR call right, too

Steve Sax said...

2-1 Dodgers through six

and it's time for Tommy's skechers shape-ups story

Alex said...

Sax, yes my avatar is cold, but give me a BREAK- see what I did there? =P

karina said...

I dig those stories! Cousins is pinch hitting now...

Alex said...

You could say that making my avatar was a snap...okay I'll stop now...

Spank said...

Cousins is alright in my book.

karina said...

there's a rumor that the Giants want Sandoval to be a catcher again.

Dusty Baker said...

I love the look on Loney's face when he homered. It was clearly an accident. He stood there like "what do I do now?" and "do I get to run around these base thingies uncontested?"

karina said...

^that was cruel, Dusty :(

Spank said...

Juan Castro Ladies and Gents.Let's give him a round of applause.

Booooooo!

Alex said...

All 'tussened up - I shant be held responsible from here on out...

Spank said...

Rub a dub dub.

Josh S. said...

Rubbymania is dead.

Spank said...

I thought everyone said this guy is good. I can pitch better left-handed with my left hand tied behind my back.

Alex said...

I hate us

Alex said...

Ha!

Spank said...

Break his leg!

karina said...

karina said...

it ain't over 'till it's over

Alex said...

Brox still on the prime ticket commercial? Maybe we fix that with Sands...

Spank said...

Maybe if Tony Gwynn,Jr. puts on about 200 pounds he'll start hitting like poppa.

Alex said...

Over/Under fookie stays healthy the rest of the year?

Spank said...

*plays Danzig first solo release on cassette*

Alex said...

Rubby Tuesday on a Friday

Alex said...

Spank said...

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

Dioner has never had a Dodger walkoff hit; he has had three in the AL

karina said...

Dioner Navarro for this?

*shakes head but still has hope*

karina said...

I'm watching that game, Sax

Alex said...

I love us! It's been fun, night y'all stay safe!

Steve Sax said...

@karina, I credit your hope

Steve Sax said...

I swear I thought Navarro was going to GITP

Steve Sax said...

@Jason, you still have two innings to go...

Spank said...

That fish in the GT pic must be from England.
