Game 87 Thread: July 5 vs. Mets, 7p

This is Dodger baseball!

Ted Lilly (5-8, 4.97) vs. Mike Pelfrey (4-7, 4.92).

Did you watch yesterday's game? It went from Rubby De La Rosa's throwing a perfect game! to Rubby De La Rosa's throwing a no-hitter! to Rubby De La Rosa's gonna win this game! to Rubby De La Rosa's got a chance to win this game if the Dodgers can come back! to Oh, that's right, we suck.

This is Dodger baseball!

Two pitchers with remarkably similar records go against each other tonight. The difference is the Mets are paying Pelfrey less than $4 million this year and he's a free agent at season's end, while the Dodgers are paying Lilly $33 million through 2013.

Have we lost yet?

Josh S. said...

Hey Sax, if Ron Cey is still in the suite, ask him if he remembers that I went to his baseball camp.

(Like, 25 years ago.)

Sparsely populated game threads these days.

But then, I'm no help.

Mr. Customer said...

Holy crap, this is a ghost town.

Is it worth the electricity/heat to turn the TV on? Cause ya know....it's still 80 degrees out *fans self*
Last night this guy had the right idea, he had a book with him on the Reserve level.
I was like "that's what i should have done, DOH!"

Mr. Customer said...

Oh fer crissake.

rbnpeace said...

Extra out in the inning = 2 run HR.

Finding new ways to suck.

rbnpeace said...

So, I just noticed, no one posted the line up?

We need an All-Star break more than the team.

rbnpeace said...

10

*sighs*

Paul said...

Worst L.A. dodger team ever? Workin on it.

Josh S. said...

We haven't even gotten our pre-loss false hope runs yet.

rbnpeace said...

Worst thing is (OK, maybe not the worst), MSTI and Moriyama both look like geniuses.

Disclaimer: I actually like MSTI.

rbnpeace said...

Even Vin sounds like he's giving up.

Paul said...

I am trying smile and think of how many of these guys won't be here next year. Of course it won't mean crap if Fuck McCourt is here.

rbnpeace said...

Dodgers now 1 for the last 337 at bats with RISP.

The More You Know.

Josh S. said...

Gotta love it when Lilly and Uribe suck it up in the same game. It's like Frank coming to your house and personally farting in your cereal

rbnpeace said...

@Josh
Funny you should say that. . .

rbnpeace said...

. . .actually, he pissed in my Post Toasties.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S: Cey was here and he says you need to choke up on the bat.

Steve Sax said...

(just kidding)

Steve Sax said...

Man this is paaaaaaaainful

Paul said...

That sent Mary Hart on her way.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, this blows.

Josh S. said...

So, what DID he say about me?

Paul said...

It is now officially cheaper for me to attend a Dodger game than the Giants Triple A team.

Horst said...

*pours some out for the Dodgers*

rbnpeace said...

Suckitude is now at a new low!

Are they really discounting tickets for Thursday's bobblehead game?

Horst said...

Surprisingly,We lost.

Horst said...

Only discounted booze will get me to the yard this year. Okay, not even that.

World B. Dusty said...

@Horst

SoSG Sax killed the discounted booze possibilities off for us long ago.

cc: Sax

World B. Dusty said...

Sweet shit-sucking mother of christ, we blow. I can't handle it.

That said, I'm heading to the Yard tomorrow night.

Horst said...

You can call me Spank,Dusty.

rbnpeace said...

You can call me, "Indifferent."

Steve Sax said...

You can call me Al
