Post-Game 70 Thread: Broken Eggshells

REDS 7, DODGERS 2

The yolk is indeed on us, most particularly all those fans who humped it out to the Stadium for a midday game and saw us turn back not only the clock (with our uniforms) but also our scoring (with our bats). Dee Gordon and Matt Kemp had multi-hit games, but the slumping Andre Ethier went 1-for-3 with 3 LOB, Marcus Thames went 0-for-3 with 4 LOB, and James Loney topped them all with an 0-for-4, 5 LOB performance. Yahtzee!

Meanwhile, Chad Billingsley couldn't even record his thirteenth out, lasting only four innings with 7 ER and 9 H. Scott Rolen crushed Bills' shell, going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI, and former Giant Fred Lewis added 2 RBI on a 2-for-3 day. So we start our most comfortable homestand of the year being uncomfortably numb, swept by the Reds at home for the first time since 2004.

Take a nice day off from a good union job tomorrow, Dodgers. You've earned it.

Can we just call up the rest of the Topes?

Dodgers should be yard sellers in a month.

Josh S. said...

When was the last time were sellers?

Josh S. said...

Ugh. I can't type today, but you know what I mean.

Mr. Customer said...

You were saying?

Dusty Baker said...

You union folks better not be taking a day off from my worksite!

Dusty Baker said...

When is the part where we win the game?

Paul said...

That respectable 5-5 road trip seems like a month ago. Man this team really knows how to kills a buzz even if the buzz was from a light beer.

Mr. Customer said...

@db

I'm not a union member. Can I have the day off then?

Paul said...

Mr. C better not be union. I only pay him in Gin.


Btw: Stop using the Company card Mr. C. Turns out it wasn't my company or my card.

Mr. Customer said...

Too late.

I traded it to Spanky for three tall boys and a mackerel, straight up.

Paul said...

Be careful he likes to trim the whiskers off catfish and call them desert makerel.

Mr. Customer said...

Mmmmm...

Desert mackerel...

Jason said...

I'm calling it now, Ned signs Fred Lewis to a 3-year, $9 MM deal this off season.

My surliness has become simple clinical depression at this point.

*sigh*

Neeebs said...

Call me when Ned is gone, when Frank is gone, and when Timmeh cuts his hair.

I doth protest these Dodgers.

Dusty Baker said...

Cut yer hair, Bronson!
