Game 100 Thread: July 23 vs. Nats, 7p

Ted Lilly (6-10, 4.83) vs. Tom Gorzelanny (2-6, 4.07).

Happy 100th game! The 43-56 Dodgers are losing at a consistent clip, but they have to really bear down if they want to match the worst of the worst: the Royals (41-58), the Orioles (39-57) and — the big boys of losing — the Astros (33-66). A loss today is no sure thing, as the Nats are going from Lannan to 'Lanny, whose numbers are almost as unimpressive as Lilly's. Expect the opposite of a pitchers' duel.

I'm 4-8 this year in games attended. Opposing team has scored twice as many runs (62) as the Dodgers have put up in my presence.

Is this all my fault?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Do you have a Dee Gordon badge?

Jason said...

After attending many a Pirates game with Gorzo pitching, let's just say I feel fairly confident about this one.

Well, slightly confident.

Okay, not confident at all.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not even confident Lilly can find the Yard, much less the plate.

NicJ said...

headed down to see the RC Quakes games tonight. Might actually get to see a team in a dodger uni win tonight.

Well a dodgeresque uni at least.

Dusty Baker said...

Give us a report later, Nic.

Skipping this one in favor of Chaplain America: The First Evangelist.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Josh - I liked it better than Captain France.

Seriously, two hours of endless retreat, what's that about?

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASC

That sounds like the last six innings of last night's game.

Spank said...

Barf bags anyone?

Dusty Baker said...

Nice pre-game chatter on how to have a classy beard, using Casey Blake as model. You're still our La Barba, Casey! Werth, however, looks like a hobo's crotch.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Josh S. said...

Watching a movie in Dusty's 'hood, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

RIP Don Drysdale #53

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Turn your cell phone off in the theater.

ps- I didn't know we had any porno theaters around here.

Paul said...

Should I watch the game or enjoy my evening?

Dusty Baker said...

Watch the game, Paul. And eat your peas.

Paul said...

They must not show clown porn or Mr. C would have told you about it by now.

Paul said...

I am queing up a whole chicken tonight to give the team some mojo.

Dusty Baker said...

Are you cooking it, or sacrificing it, Paul?

I guess it's a fine line between the two...

Dusty Baker said...

Ted I am going to plunger rape you if you fuck up this game and thus my evening.

Dusty Baker said...

Where was that pitch, ump?

Dusty Baker said...

If this keeps up, so help me god, I'm pulling on a Nats hat.

(cries)

(stabs part of self that actually likes the Nats)

Dusty Baker said...

@Saxy

Just what I thought, a Kemp sac fly!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Colletti still isn't sure if we're buyers or sellers.

Dusty Baker said...

We are cellars.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RUNZ

Dusty Baker said...

Loney is one of the world's slowest men who should have been out, but catcher Ramos juggles it and the run counts. 3-2 Nats.

Dusty Baker said...

Then Miles went down like a Tijuana whore. Rally successfully killed. We go to the 3rd.

Dusty Baker said...

Third beer I meant.

Dusty Baker said...

Third beer since the game started, I mean.

Dusty Baker said...

You traded UP to a Ford Edge? What the hell were you driving before?

Dusty Baker said...

Two Nats on, only one out. It's on young catcher Wilson Ramos to make something happen.

Paul said...

We scored?? Twice?!?

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, but the Nats scored twice two and a half times.

5-2 Nats after a double by pitcher Rick Ankiel.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, how we need Our Lady of Perpetual Optimism to help us through these dark days.

Dusty Baker said...

6-2 now. Runs are coming as fast as I can type.

Dusty Baker said...

We go to the bottom of the 3rd.


(cries like a schoolgirl)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

46

Dusty Baker said...

Are you taunting me, Tsar? Please let me just have one of my few remaining pleasures in life in peace. I'm fragile.


(cries like Mr. F)

Dusty Baker said...

I want a two-piece leg and thigh combo.


From El Pollo Loco, I mean.

Spank said...

@ Dusty

Ankiels come free with that combo.

Mr. Customer said...

Christ on a multigrain cracker, how can we be so terrible?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Whoa.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Way whoa.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Triple whoa.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

54

Dusty Baker said...

6-5 now. We are slightly more terrible that are the Nats.

Keep Gorze-whatever in, please!

Dusty Baker said...

Lilly is a much better hitter than he is a pitcher.

Dusty Baker said...

Nats retired in order. 6-5 bad guys. We still got this.

Dusty Baker said...

Dammit, Nats put in a newer (e.g., better) pitcher. We may not have this.

Dusty Baker said...

Where's my fuckin Ted Lilly badge, bish?

karina said...

Epale everyone!

just got home from work, are we winning yet?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

See my comment at 8:15pm

karina said...

@Dusty I think Lady of the Perpetual Optimism will be off for the rest of the season, I'm working like crazy, eg got home at 11:30 pm and have to work TOMORROW at 7 am 'till God knows when :( and my immediate boss is like Miranda Priestly or whatever that character's name is spelled

karina said...

Dusty Baker said...

Our Lady of Perpetual Slave Labor it sounds like!

karina said...

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

What's the opposite of Free James Loney?

Spank said...

Dusty Baker said...

Imprison James Loney!

karina said...

Dusty Baker said...

Paul said...

Steve Sax said...

Hey guys! What's going on?

Paul said...

Ahhhhhh

Paul said...

Boooooo!

Spank said...

We went from a wide ass(Dinner)to a wide eyes(Ackbar).

Dusty Baker said...

Eyes Wide Shit

Steve Sax said...

Hey guys! What's going on?

Spank said...

Not to get everyone upset but it is almost August and how many homeruns does Dre have? Just asking.

Paul said...

Can you die from eating too much garlic?

Paul said...

.169. Even suck says you suck Fookie.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, Sax, I was missing a brother.

We just tied it at 6, but very undeservedly.

Orel said...

"They're not throwing candy bars to this Oh Henry." —Vin

Dodgers 6, Nats 6

Paul said...

He has 5 more that Urine.

Spank said...

Kemp is in the hole. God bless him.

Paul said...

I am going to make popcorn...garlic popcorn. No!

Steve Sax said...

Miles is now 0-for-5

Paul said...

I thought all our crappy power hitters would at least still hit like crappy power hitters.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty (and everyone else): I will be there tomorrow, but may be late. My kid is sick but I hope to be accompanied tomorrow for the game.

If you're there, lets grab a beer.

karina said...

ladies and gents, it's time to go to bed, night

Dusty Baker said...

I'll drop you a line then, Sax.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty, just emailed you back

Wow MacD just got a K

Spank said...

Goodnight Karina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Rick Monday must have shorted the maple bat market as he brings it up EVERY fucking time that they shatter.

WE GET IT RICK

Steve Sax said...

Nice play Rafster. Too bad you can't hit anymore

Dusty Baker said...

(gets it)

Dusty Baker said...

Spank said...

Poor Rick Monday. God bless him.

Steve Sax said...

Paul said...

Steve Sax said...

Rick Monday: do you know what else shatters?

Our ears every fucking time you bring this up

Maple bats shatter. Get the fuck over it, it's not a goddamned x-files conspiracy

Steve Sax said...

@Spank: Loney IS a hole

Josh S. said...

Cap was good. Real good.

Josh S. said...

Heh. Thanks, Werthless.

Steve Sax said...

Miles is not only 0-for-5, he also has four LoB

Josh S. said...

Have we discussed how stupid his negative-handlebar is yet?

Steve Sax said...

Sam the Eagle!

Steve Sax said...

Loney at is second is 1-for-2 with 3 LOb

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, look, a weak chopper from Loney to end the inning!

Steve Sax said...

Now Loney is 1-for-3 with 4 LOB

Josh S. said...

Was there any other possible outcome?

Steve Sax said...

We go to the ninth, tied at 6

Spank said...

I'm naming my next turd Loney.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, Spank. That said it all.

Dusty Baker said...

"I've gotta go take a Loney."

Steve Sax said...

I gotta go drop off the Loneys

Paul said...

Thank God we never traded the great prospect Loney for anyone.

Steve Sax said...

And then I have some Urine after my Loney

Dusty Baker said...

I ate some lettuce in Mexico and now I've got a bad case of the Loneys.

Paul said...

Nationals that is about the ugliest W I have seen and I have seen a lot of ugly Ws.

Paul said...

I miss hating Broxton.

Spank said...

@ Dusty

Loney's revenge

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

I'm sorry the Drysdale family has to see this Loneyfest.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Rod Barajas is like a massive Loney.

Paul said...

Nexttime Loney hits a homerun I will Loney my pants.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, that's a great start

Too bad we can't PR for Barajas since there is no one left to catch. Nice thinking Donnie

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, who knew the guy batting .210 would get a hit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate bunting.

Steve Sax said...

First and second with one out for Furcal

Prove us wrong Raffy

Dusty Baker said...

Let the dry humping begin!!!

Steve Sax said...

2-0 to Raffy, a .169 hitter

Steve Sax said...

Boom!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey a win!

Spank said...

Holy Loney!!!

Josh S. said...

The race for third place is on!

Paul said...

Fookie will be on the 60 day DL tomorrow. Thanks Kemp.

Josh S. said...

Yay! Raffy English!

Paul said...

Raffy sounds like My Uncle when he is plowed.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Raffy sounded perfectly clear to me.

#AlsoPlowed

Spank said...

Now I can focus on the booze thread.

Paul said...

Lyons is dressed like he wants to sell me a used Caddy.

Dusty Baker said...

"Lilly didn't have his best stuff." I don't even know how to respond to that statement from post-game.

Steve Sax said...
