Game 111 Thread: August 5 @ D'backs, 6.40p

Chad Billingsley (9-9, 4.15) vs. Josh Collmenter (6-6, 3.10)

He's a Collmenter Snake! Look into his eyes! Uh oh; he's been giving up fly (balls) [Collmenter's GB/FB ratio is 0.54, relative to the league average 0.82].

He's a loverboy at play! He don't play by rules. Uh oh; girl, to cheer is cruel [With Arizona only a half-game back of San Francisco, to root for a Dodgers victory means we're helping the Giants toward their pennant chase. Oh, cruel fate].

Alas, the days where Paula Abdul was skinny and American Idol was not poisoning television.

Ah man, I should be there in Hell-Phoenix

Ah, back in the days when I was crushing on Paula, and having breakfast with her at Jerry's Deli in Studio City. Well, she was sitting at the table next to me. Does that count? I'm pretty sure she wanted me.

This video was even edits she started elongating her videos to make herself look skinnier

When I think of Phoenix I think of Jean Grey hawt-ness.

Spank said...

Running nekked,Vinny!

Josh S. said...

Blinded by Spank, Vinny!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If we win, we help the Giants.

LOSE, YOU JERKS, LOSE.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Suck, Dodgers, suck!

(cries)

MR.F said...

I am equally torn.

(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit, Mr. F, I'm talking about the greater good here! What would you rather have, a win today or an October that's Giant-free?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What, we're winning? Dammit!

Steve Sax said...

Phils are up 4-1 too, so you can't feel like a win tonight would be that bad.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Not if the Giants win the division by one game.

Josh S. said...

Marla just wants to root for his new home team.

Spank said...

^Snap!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Josh - You're just upset because I'm rooting against both of your favorite teams.

MR.F said...

We're winning. (cries)

Spank said...

"Giants Rock!" as told by Josh.

Josh S. said...

Fuck you guys, I like the Yankees now! Russell Martin Fo' Life!

Josh S. said...

Looks like Bills is doing the right thing anyway.

Spank said...

There you go,Marl's. RA D-Bags. No outs tambien.

Spank said...

Ackbar was trapped on that ground ball.

Josh S. said...

Handedness matchups have no place in a lost season.

Josh S. said...

OK, that was sweet, Dee.

Spank said...

DEE FUCKING GORDON!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Steve Sax said...

Oh man I can't wait to see that Gordon play on highlights

Spank said...

Fucking Vin..."Loney is 1-3 and has moved his average up a bit. He is now 1 point higher"

Josh S. said...

STOOPID BARAJAS

Spank said...

Rod put some wood on that pitch.

Steve Sax said...

Rod Barajas, ladies and gentlemen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I believe 72.45% of Rod's hits have been homers.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, M.I.A. as the fade-in song for the radio show. Progressive call for Steiner.

Steve Sax said...

@MLaSC: you forgot to carry the 1

Steve Sax said...

Phils up 8-2 on the Giants

Charley says there was a benches-clearing brawl

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They were arguing over who's the bigger jackass, Shane or Krampus.

Steve Sax said...

7-3 Dodgers in the bottom of the eighth

Steve Sax said...

MacDougal, you SUCK

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They put Barajas' homer in the Gameday highlight stable, but not Dee's stop? Bullshit, I say.

Josh S. said...

I did run the numbers. Shockingly, it's only 21.73%.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

A fifth of his hits go yard? That'd be fantastic, if only he could actually hit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like Victorino won this round of jackassery, but the night is young.

Josh S. said...

Javy bribes the other guys in the pen to go out and get him save situations.

Steve Sax said...

Huge K there for MacD

Interesting, Donnie Baseball going to get Javy Guerra with two out in the eighth.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Do you believe in Javy Guerra?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Damn, that was intense.

Steve Sax said...

9-2 phils in the bottom of the eighth

Steve Sax said...

7-4 dodgers in the top of the ninth with two out

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yay, we win.

Le sigh.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up

Sax 4:24p: replace "edits" with "before"
