Game 126 Thread: August 21 @ Rockies, 12n

Chad Billingsley (10-9, 4.04) vs. Kevin Millwood (0-1, 4.85).

Really? Kevin Millwood is on the Rockies? Apparently he started spring training in the Yankees' minor-league system, then in May opted out of his contract to sign a minor-league contract with the Red Sox. Then he opted out of that contract and joined the Rockies earlier this month. Let's see if we can damage him further before Ned Colletti offers him a three-year contract.

Loney and Velez are both being considered as emergency pitchers. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see both.

Jason said...

I'm working on drinking game rules in case Loney or Velez pitches. Inducing double (or triple) plays and weak ground outs, drink!

Fernie V said...

Loney should pitch. When they drafted him they had to decide if he was going to pitch or hit.

Josh S. said...

Ah, the Dodgers are starting to realize they're facing Kevin Millwood.

Josh S. said...

Or not.

Jason said...

Is this game being played in 2002? Millwood and Giambi?

Josh S. said...

Nice swing, James.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Loney pitches well, do we keep him as a reliever for next season?

Jason said...

Let Loney throw in the bullpen before every game.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hold on a sec, Jason Giambi is still playing?

Jason said...

To be fair, this game is being played in 2002.

BOOOOOOOOOOOO

(cries)

Josh S. said...

Poopie.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Todd Helton replaces Jason Giambi? Is this some sort of defensive switch from hell?

Jason said...

We've flash forwarded to 2007.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm ready for football season.

Jason said...

Is it too early to start hoping that the player to be named later in the Rivera trade is Uribe?

Josh S. said...

Walking CarGo to get to Tulo.

CANNOT POSSIBLY FAIL

Steve Sax said...

Fuck

Jason said...

Loney did everything but throw a shutout.



^ things I never thought I'd say

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I would be shocked if the Rockies don't pursue Loney when he hits the free agency market.

Fernie V said...

Today must of been bazaro day.

Motherfucker, what the fuck?

You talking to me?

Fernie V said...

4 for 4, you can just see Loney tearing it up with another team. By the way Martin is batting something like .156 the last 54 games.
