Game 122 Thread: August 17 @ Brewers, 5p

Nathan Eovaldi (1-0, 1.64) vs. Zack Greinke (11-4, 4.08).

The Brewers have the Diamond Dancers, while the Dodgers are Diamond Disasters. It's good to be Greinke, who's 8-0 at Miller Park this season, but it's bad to be the Dodgers, who helped the Brewers to a season-high seven-game divisional lead yesterday. The most we can root for today is another solid outing from the rookie Eovaldi, and for Matt Kemp to inch closer to 30/30...and 40/40.

This date in lineup history comes from 2005:

Izturis 6
Robles 5
Bradley 8
Kent 4
Valentin (and his mustache) 7
"Can't spell" Jayson Werth 9
"Can spell" Jason Phillips 3
Dinner 2
"Not Oliver" Perez 1

Special appearance by Broxton pitching the 5th (3 K, 3 BB, 1 H, 1 ER). For the Braves, we got to see Furcal leading off and Andruw Jones go 1-5 with his 38th homerun.

Mr. Customer said...

I thought Valentin was hurt most of that year. Must have been between hospital visits.

Mr. Customer said...

Freaking Odalis...

Definitely up there on the most-hated ex-Dodger lists for me.

Fred's Brim said...

I would like to see Odalis and Brad Penny in a Rock'em Sock'em Robots-like battle

Steve Sax said...

"Can't spell" Jayson Werth 9
"Can't hit" Jason Phillips 3

Steve Sax said...

I can only find info on the 2010 squad, but I'd have to go with Katie, Angela, Racquel, or Melissa.

Steve Sax said...

And Gwyn.

Jason said...

Dibs on Chelsea!

Jason said...

I think Gwyn refers to Tony as "Can't spell" Gwynn, Jr.

Mr. Customer said...

Damn, they don't get a lot of sun up there, do they?

Jason said...

Sun, cheese, beer: choose two.

Jason said...

Zack Greinke has a tiny head!

(pours one out for Dusty)

rbnlaw said...

kill, Kill, KILL.

Spank Horst said...

I'll hook up wif Erica and Courtney.

Mr. Customer said...

If you'll excuse me, I need to go home for some cheese and beer, whilst enjoying the sun.

Jason said...

Loney: 1 PA, 2 outs

To be fair, one of those outs came on a Miles CS, but still...

Jason said...

It appears Navarro just got the bunt sign that was sent in to Loney when Miles was caught stealing.

Spank Horst said...

Changing shit again Sons? I see what's going on.

Steve Sax said...

what shit are we changing?

MR.F said...

Aaron Miles: legitimately our best option for #5 hitter?

Fred's Brim said...

Yo Mr F!

Fred's Brim said...

Gwynn with the bunt single

Fred's Brim said...

and Billingsley is our best #5 hitter option

MR.F said...

So true, FB!

Fred's Brim said...

nice pickup, Casey

eff you, Collins

Fred's Brim said...

where have you been hiding, MrF?

Fred's Brim said...

looks like Nate will get another crack at the meat of the Brewer lineup

Fred's Brim said...

Dre gets us started with a nice single

Cmon Matty!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty can't lay off the breaking balls

Fred's Brim said...

that slider thing is nasty

Fred's Brim said...

at least Loney can't hit into a double play this time

Fred's Brim said...

good AB for James

Fred's Brim said...

two on, two out, Dinner up

Fred's Brim said...

Dinner down
Grankey with a nice backhand of a grounder up the middle

Fred's Brim said...

was that our last good chance to score?

Fred's Brim said...

Jamey Carroll in to replace Casey for some reason

Fred's Brim said...

heh heh "Regina"

Fred's Brim said...

Young Billy Joel gets the walk,
Fielder up with one out

Fred's Brim said...

Fielder with a single, first and second, still one out

Fred's Brim said...

this ump won't give him the outside pitch

Fred's Brim said...

and another walk, bases loaded, one out

Is there another double play in our bag? Maybe get Loney to rub the ball

Fred's Brim said...

that's the same damn pitch you called a ball, (ch)ump!

Fred's Brim said...

Betancourt with a shallow fly ball to center for the second out, runners can't advance

Fred's Brim said...

One more, kid. Finish this off

Spank Horst said...

What's up, FB!

Fred's Brim said...

shite
grounder up the middle scores 2

Spank Horst said...

What happened to the fat letter script on the home page? I wasn't dreaming it right?

Fred's Brim said...

We get 2 strikes, 2 outs and we can't close the deal. It feels like it's been like that all season. I guess that's why we are 11 (soon to be 12) games under .500

Fred's Brim said...

Whattup, Spanktopus?

Fred's Brim said...

Lyons is blaming Navarro for the hit by Hairston

Fred's Brim said...

@Spank - I didn't see that

Spank Horst said...

Must have been my Apple II fucking with me.

2-0 Uecker.

Fred's Brim said...

Tony Gwynn with a... a... homer?

Josh S. said...

WHAAAAAAAA?

Fred's Brim said...

I used to like it when teams (or players) would mark the team's logo on the back of the mound, but the Brewers painting it blue and gold is straight wack. I would scuff it out or drop the rosin bag on it

Fred's Brim said...

yum, our bullpen

Josh S. said...

T'would be nice if the Dodgers could at least get Captain Eo off the hook.

Fred's Brim said...

Craig Counsell is still in the league?

MR.F said...

Busy at work. Traveling. Then working "hard". This and that. And then I get lazy and don't feel like watching the Dodgers at home because they suck.

Fred's Brim said...

we look like a bunch of monkeys fucking a doorknob sometimes

Fred's Brim said...

I hear ya, Mr F - I couldn't even participate in the AssAssIns Circle this year

Fred's Brim said...

Casey left with shoulder pain - shit ain't right with gramps

Josh S. said...

The monkeys score more consistently than we do.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like the Dodgers.

Fred's Brim said...

Navarro, the ass that he is, throws out Counsell

Josh S. said...

Casey's a year older than I am, but I have qualms about calling him Methuselah.

Fred's Brim said...

The monkeys should set their horny sights on Navarro's mask next time

Josh S. said...

Josh S. left the game due to acute malaise.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

My Halloween costume was a monkey fucking a doorknob.

Marla, do you have a pic of that?

and do you mind me stealing that idea?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

All photographic evidence was confiscated by the NSA.

Fred's Brim said...

this damn ump has a shitty strike zone

Fred's Brim said...

i'll just have to imagine it

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with the infield single

Fred's Brim said...

James can't lay off the head-high curve

Fred's Brim said...

nice work by the bullpen against the middle of the order

Fred's Brim said...

Axford in to send us back to the hotel

Fred's Brim said...

thanks, Dinner

Josh S. said...

Did we lose yet?

Fred's Brim said...

Sellers draws the one-out walk, Rivera up

Fred's Brim said...

And Rivera stands there like he never saw the pitches

Fred's Brim said...

@Josh, just about

Fred's Brim said...

this ump is no good - his strike zone is all over the place

Fred's Brim said...

and that'll do it

thank you, drive thru
gnite yall

MR.F said...

I just get home and they lose already?!

rbnlaw said...

Damn FB, that's a lot of cover shots.

Wait, wrong thread.

Josh S. said...

We won!

Josh S. said...

Sorry, I was looking at August 17, 2010.
