Game 130 Thread: August 26 vs. Rockies, 7p

Smile, Esmil!

Ted Lilly (7-13, 4.58) vs. Esmil Rogers (6-2, 6.00).

Fresh off a sweep of the Cardinals, the Dodgers look to Lilly to see if they can start this series on the right foot and get our fourth win in a row. In fact, if we sweep the Rockies, we could vault into third place in the NL West, possibly even dropping into single digits in the GB for the first time since August 6.

Of course, for this to happen, Lilly is going to have to pitch better than he did on August 20, when he faced Rogers and didn't even last through the fifth inning (in a game we ultimately lost). But I've got a lucky feeling about tonight for Ted. Let's see if I'm right.

DAMMIT!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS MEAN NOTHING! NOTHING! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Sorry, I'm stuck in Assassins mode until I get Smonk.

Jason: you gotta place a bet on the Sat or Sun Dodgers game

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

But the umps aren't ready so game time has been moved to 7:20 apparently.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

The umps got caught in traffic due to a fatal accident on the Pasadena Freeway.

Kinda cute how they carpool together.

Steve Sax said...

Kinda bizarre how they are staying in Pasadena.

WTF?

What about downtown? Or the westside?

Pasadena???

Dusty Baker said...

Glad I didn't come home on the 110 tonight.

Steve Sax said...

Hmm. I already have a CarGo badge for this game. And we're down 1-0 after 0.5 innings.

Lilly! Get with it!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

If I take the San Diego Freeway, I'm not necessarily going to or from San Diego.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SC: Yeah, but if they're taking the Pasadena Freeway to Dodger Stadium, they're clearly staying northbound, in the valley.

Steve Sax said...

1-0 rockies through 2

Arizona is up 5-0 on SD. Houston @ SF is scoreless through two.

Steve Sax said...

Looks like its going to be a light night in the bar tonight.

Mr. LA SC: can you make it to SoSG Fest 2011?

Josh S. said...

Anyone seen Josh?

Oh good, here I am.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Sax, I live more than 300 miles away.

Dusty Baker said...

The umps were probably staying at the Langham (old Ritz Carlton) in Pasadena. Lots of sports teams and related stay there as it's not far from DS and a nice place, plus it's more private.

Dusty Baker said...

Can I get a Guinness milkshake, Sax? Thanks. How much do I owe you for that? Actually, can I start a tab?

Steve Sax said...

Okay, I'm going to go get in a workout here. When I come back, we'd better be winning.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SC: I dare say you won't be close to the farthest-traveling attendee, if you decide to come.

Steve Sax said...

Maybe.

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 2-0

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty just made a gin and tonic with way too much gin, but drank it anyway. She's my hero.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

It's just too difficult to accomplish. It'd only be a month after moving.

Dusty Baker said...

Pussy-ass assassin.

Dusty Baker said...

VINNY BACK NEXT YEAR!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry, we just had a weepy Vin moment. We could lose 54-0 tonight and I wouldn't care.

Thank you, Vin!

DodgersKings323 said...

Get outta town!!! Did he say that??? All of the hated ones lost today we just need the Giants to fall and this will go down as the best day of the year if McCourt isn't ousted until next :)

Orel said...

Vin's statement posted on the main page!

Spank Horst said...

Ethier sucks! There I said it.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

BALK

Steve Sax said...

Ether, you lucky fuck. You just got bailed out by the umps.

Spank Horst said...

And there you go. Bye children. You can thank me for the runs later.

Steve Sax said...

Ether, take a note from Justin Sellers. Pay attention!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Quit autocorrecting my Ethier, ipad

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Ether, take a note from vicodin! Come in pill form!!!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

SELL SELL SELL

Dusty Baker said...

Buh-bye ball!

Steve Sax said...

holy shit, that was surprising.

Dusty Baker said...

I thought you were typing "Ether" on purpose, because it fits.

Dusty Baker said...

Both those balks were well called.

Dusty Baker said...

Quick work,Orel!

@Assassin

I was making a play on your continuing "46" gambit.

Steve Sax said...

I know this is better fit for the WBT, but I just cracked open a Rogue Dead Guy Ale. Not bad, if I do say so myself. Yay Oregon.

Josh S. said...

Had to miss most of this game. Bummed at all I missed out on, but jazzed as fuck that Vin is coming back.

NOW WIN ONE FOR HIM YOU SCHMUCKS.

Steve Sax said...

Is the most recent comments widget stalled for you guys as well? I feel bad having to keep thinking about the fatal accident on the Pasadena Freeway.

Steve Sax said...

BTW, Orel and I are going Sunday if anyone wants to meet up for a SoSG Mini-Fest.

Unless they change the time of the fucking game again, that is.

Dusty Baker said...

That's a day game on Sunday, eh Saxy?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Nope, it's working for me.

Steve Sax said...

The highlight of FJL's HR was sweet. He actually stood there to admire it. Nice.

For those of you with access, there is also a highlight of Vin Scully announcing his return to the Dodgers next year. Also nice!

Steve Sax said...

@DB: as of now, yes.

Day Game = Good Time For Beer

Steve Sax said...

Stuck at 350 badges
