Game 71 Thread: June 17 vs. Astros, 7p

Ted Lilly (5-5, 3.98) vs. Brett Myers (2-6, 5.03).

I don't care if the Astros are the worst team in the major leagues. This does not look like the kind of guy to be trifled with (especially in Texas, where they can carry concealed weapons). Good luck out there, boys; try to bring us back the first win of this homestand!

I woke up this morning feeling pretty good about the world. I assumed it was because it was Friday. Seeing this game thread makes me realize it is because the Dodgers didn't lose yesterday.

I'm going to skip this one and take in the sun before it starts raining here tomorrow (ironically, on the annual Solstice parade).

My parting gift:

Gordon - SS
Miles - 2B
Ethier - RF
Kemp - CF
Loney - 1B
Uribe - 3B
Navarro - C
Oeltjen - LF
Lilly - P

This McCourt stuff nauseates me. I'm not happy.

Steve Sax said...

I'm out of pocket for a while, gents. Keep up the fight for me.

Hello Everybody!!

We are 8 games under .500. Boy, what a sorry bunch.:(

Steve Sax said...

@Karen: us, or the dodgers?

Or both?

karen said...

Sadly, the Dodgers. We're a group of winners!! :) :) :)

Vin pronouncing Juan Uribe as "Yuron Ebay" is one of his better slip ups in some time.

karen said...

Where's the third stooge??

Josh S. said...

Did we lose yet?

karen said...

@Josh--Almost.

karen said...

If the Astros are the worst team in baseball, where does that leave the Dodgers??

Greg said...

Oh, the suckage. We actually paid to be at this game.

karen said...

Watching this game has made me numb.

Josh S. said...

Myers is beating the Dodgers like...

...nah, too easy.

Paul said...

Dee gets to second base because of defensive indifference...

Ahh reminds me of my Friday nights in College.

Paul said...

2-10!

Josh S. said...

Dre remembered how to hit home runs?

Paul said...

That was an accident Josh. He was swinging for a single.

@Paul-9.45:
I actually spit out water reading that. Good pull.

@Paul-9.50:
I was thinking the same thing earlier this evening.

Neeebs said...

I think this ranks as the sorriest game thread of the season. No coincidence that it is also the sorriest game of the season.

Dusty Baker said...

I just want to fucking punch a nun.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not sure what's worse - today's game or the segment of Revenge of the Sith I just watched whilst flipping around channels. Jesus fucking shitstain, folks. The whole Samuel Jackson vs old white guy piece..did anyone seriously ever buy into this fucking tripe? I'm the only one up watching, and I still feel embarrassed for humanity. YOY was this made?

Steve Sax said...

I can't bear to watch.

The Dodgers, or ROTSith for that matter

Dusty Baker said...

Why am I just sitting around drinking Peruvian beer and listening to a a Sugar Hill Gang anthology?

Steve Sax said...

I'm coming over, Dusty!

Dusty Baker said...

Patio door is open, Saxy!

Shit's getting deeper. Listening to some Katy Perry now.

Fred's Brim said...

I can't take much more of this, but I will probably be proven wrong about that.

Interesting/sad fact: we have scored first and in the first of each off these losses
