Game 131 Thread: August 27 vs. Rockies, 1p

Chad Billingsley (10-10, 4.07) vs. Kevin Millwood (1-1, 4.50).

It's a duel of evenly-balanced starting pitchers! And though it might not be Shazam Captain Marvel vs. Superman, this still could be an entertaining matchup underneath the hot, hot afternoon sun. Should the Dodgers win, they would lay claim to third place in the division, along with the Rockies, as well as their fifth victory in a row. Let's see if Bills can conquer Mills.

30/30 for Kemp and Vin is coming back! I could get hit by a bus today, and the weekend would still be excellent!

Dusty Baker said...

I forgot it was a day game. Yes!

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Eric Karros!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Great reference, Sax!

Jason said...

Made my way to a bar to watch the game and its blacked out. Eff you, MLB!

*consoles self with another beer*

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

If you black out at the bar, will you then be able to see the blacked-out telecast?

Dusty Baker said...

ps- It's on regular FOX network.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I get Detroit/Minnesota.

Jason said...

Miles 4
Loney 3
Kemp 8
Rivera 7
Ethier 9
Blake 5
Ellis 2
Carroll 6
Billingsley 1

Jason said...

*tests Dusty's blackout theory*

Dusty Baker said...

I've checked the science, Jason. It's solid.

Jason said...

Climbed out of my beer long enough to check and I'm getting Detroit/Minnesota like the Czar.

Jason said...

"In play, out(s)" is the bane of my existence today.

Steve Sax said...

Im not getting Detroit/Minny!

0-0 after one

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Hey, Moneyball's coming out in less than a month.

Steve Sax said...

Bills having a lot of control problems

Steve Sax said...

Ball ricochets off the first base bag for a double. Booooooo

Jason said...

Sometimes I miss when Jonah Hill was the Dodgers GM.

Steve Sax said...

I know it's hot and people aren't sitting in the front of the sections... But really, there's nobody there.

Steve Sax said...

Bills at 41 pitches. He's had four full counts

Steve Sax said...

Chad got very lucky on that K

To be fair, he had a called strike 3 two pitches prior

Jason said...

"In play, out(s)" works to my favor. Hooray!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I don't recall DePo being that fat. Or having the name "Peter Brand."

el montanero said...

Fack!

Steve Sax said...

Eric Karros would give the Cy Young to Kershaw and the MVP to Matt Kemp.

I love his bias!

Steve Sax said...

Pretty curve by Bills there

Steve Sax said...

Bills is letting this get away

Steve Sax said...

4-0 Rox

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Are you referring to his left thigh?

Josh S. said...

Home from my kid's party and halfway into a Ranger IPA.

Anyone know who this is calling the game with EK? Voice doesn't sound familiar.

Steve Sax said...

Rivera had a nice catch and put out there, even if Miles missed the tag

Ethier sucked there on that weak-ass K

Steve Sax said...

Oeltjen, with pitchers mound power there

Steve Sax said...

Miles is one hairy Frodo

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S: they keep showing the announcer's name but I don't know who it is. I think he has a lot of Os in his last name

Steve Sax said...

May be time for me to fire up the Modern Warfare 2 here

Steve Sax said...

Love Jim Tracy's face after that play

4-1

Wait 4-2

Wait kemp is stupidly thrown out at third by a mile

Wait kemp is safe! Wow!

Steve Sax said...

Wallach, that was a really bad call to send Ethier

Ethier out at home for the second straight game

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?

Josh S. said...

Woooooooooooooooooooo.

Steve Sax said...

If AJ can score Blake... Wait they just HBP Ellis.

If Blake can just score, Bills can get the win!

Steve Sax said...

Bills' win is in the hands of Ackbar

Steve Sax said...

ACKBAR!!!!

Josh S. said...

Who are these a-holes that keep coming up with big innings?

Steve Sax said...

Five runs in the frame

Steve Sax said...

Wow

Steve Sax said...

Tracy making the walk out

Steve Sax said...

Tracy interrupting in the middle of Oeltjen's AB and calling to the pen

Steve Sax said...

Finished my first Sapporo

Steve Sax said...

5-4 Dodgers end of six

Steve Sax said...

Wow, GameDay is about twenty minutes late. Must be Hurricane Irene

Steve Sax said...

Oh

No

It's

Kuo

Steve Sax said...

We are going to need more than five runs

Steve Sax said...

Fuck that was a bad toss to Kuo, FJL

Cargo with a leadoff bunt single

Steve Sax said...

Kuo is so fucking bad right now, it hurts

Why the fuck are we pitching Kuo this year???

Steve Sax said...

Kuo is awful

Way to quiet the crowd Hunchy

Steve Sax said...

Kuo had better get Helton out

Steve Sax said...

K on helton

Steve Sax said...

FJL needs a HR here

Steve Sax said...

6-5 Rox

Steve Sax said...

Baaaaaad K there for Loney

Steve Sax said...

Here comesHuston Street

Steve Sax said...

How about this tradition, Fox:

Buck-less Saturdays

Steve Sax said...

Let's see how Kemp does here

Steve Sax said...

0-2 count on Kemp

Steve Sax said...

Kemp strokes a single to center

Steve Sax said...

Kemp stranded by Rivera. Boo

You know, these Ford commercials where they show the owners being interviewed by press corps is really unnerving. Makes me want to not buy a ford.

Dusty Baker said...

*pees*

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

I hope that's not the nay thing holding you back from buying a Ford.

Dusty Baker said...

What is your favorite Japanese beer, Sax?

cc: Jason

Josh S. said...

On to the Dogfish Head 60 Minute to get through the 8th and 9th. Kid still asleep.

This game is slooooow.

Dusty Baker said...

Why don't' we just start a Weekend Booze Thread on Facebook and report that booze news on that thread?

Josh S. said...

Cuz these are beers consumed during a game thread, natch.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOO

Jason said...

@Dusty

All of them at some point or another. But, for me, when it's relaxing time, it's Suntory time.

Dusty Baker said...

Suntory on you, then!

Jason said...

DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

Light-hitting, light-running James Fucking Loney up in dis bish!!! Tie game.

cc: Jim Peltz

Josh S. said...

Wuzzat?

Josh S. said...

Long ass game threatening to get longer.

Jason said...

Free baseball!

Josh S. said...

Nice one, Juanito.

Jason said...

Giambino sighting!

Fred's Brim said...

Sax was very prophetic at 4:11!

Fred's Brim said...

Had to check on my badge total: I have two badges, bitches!

One of them is for Javy's strikeout in the 10th. The other is for Opening Day

Fred's Brim said...

Time for Dre to make up for his two recent outs at home

Dusty Baker said...

I have that Opening Day badge, too, FB.

Have no idea how, given that I was at the game and had no computer access.

Fred's Brim said...

wwop we got something cookin!

Fred's Brim said...

woop, not an antiquated racist comment

Fred's Brim said...

@DB they could sense you were there

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

I could sense very little that day.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, kid! Let's go home!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Loney will make one great Rocky.

Dusty Baker said...

I sure wish Karina weren't out making a porno so she could chime in with a rancho ardiendo comment.

Fred's Brim said...

that was very boring, Aaron

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Well, that happened.

Jason said...

BOOOOOOOO!

Fred's Brim said...

She's been gone a while. They've probably finished 2500-3000 movies in that time

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Stoopid Loney, make long baseball game longer.

Dusty Baker said...

Look forward to seeing that whole series of Venezuelan jungle porn.

Fred's Brim said...

100

Fred's Brim said...

The ump left "dehydrated" in the third? Dusty did you take him out drinking last night?

Dusty Baker said...

If I would have taken him out drinking last night, he would have just now showed up in the 11th wet, broke, and confused.

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy, Mac

Fred's Brim said...

and I bet he would be calling a few more strikes in our favor too

Fred's Brim said...

MATTTTTYYY!!
i love you!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Get your dry hump on!

Dusty Baker said...

MATT GOD DAMNED KEMP UP IN DIS BISH!!!

Fred's Brim said...

We're not worthy!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Hey, we win!

ubragg said...

Yeah!!!

Josh S. said...

KemVP!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

ubragg! He's alive!

Jason said...

A win so unexpected, ubragg makes an appearance!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Did Will Shortz finally put down his whip, ubragg?

ubragg said...

I just had a feeling today... saw we were down one in the 9th and joined in time to see Loney tie it.

Also got my first badge today! FB, you have me by 1.

MR.F said...

Holy shit! Matt Kemp!!!! <3 <3 <3

Fred's Brim said...

gross gross gross!! just watched the replay of the dry hump and it was Eugenio Velez who was delivering the humpin! That asshole better not have rubbed his terrible mojo on Matty. And by mojo, I mean his 0-for-27 wiener

Dusty Baker said...

Did Velez miss Kemp's asshole 27 times?

Spank Horst said...

^Snap!

Fernie V said...

Bang bang

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Wait a minute, Sax's post refers to Captain Marvel as Shazam! I take back my post about the great reference!

SHAME. SHAME, I SAY.

Steve Sax said...

Oh, fuck. You DC guys are pains in the ass.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

That's like calling John McClain "Die Hard."

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

*McClane

Fernie V said...

I thought Shaq was Shazam.

Fernie V said...

And I thought McCourt was Die Hard

Steve Sax said...

If you didn't have so many fucking parallel earths, this wouldn't be a problem

If Woody had gone to the police, this would never have happened

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Oh yeah, because Marvel has no alternate universes.

*cough, Ultimate Marvel, cough*

Steve Sax said...

Are the Fawcett characters from earth-736, or earth-283? I always get mixed up.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Earth-616, what the hell is that?

Steve Sax said...

Hmm, good point.

Fred's Brim said...

616? I think that's the UP of Michigan. Another world indeed.

Steve Sax said...

Whoops, sorry for the delay. PGT up.

Steve Sax said...

mr la sc: edited the post based on your catch. thanks
