Game 137 Thread: Sept 2 @ Braves, 4:30p

Chad Billingsley (10-10, 4.08) vs. Brandon Beachy (7-2, 3.31).

The Dodgers have won nine of ten and are smoking hot, but enter the tomahawk-chopping, pre-alignment house of horrors in Atlanta. The Braves lead the Wild Card by 8.5 games (over St Louis; the sorry Giants are 9.5 GB). And I would write more but I've got a barbecue grill to tend. Gotta run, people!

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, check us out stillplayng like a halfway decent baseball team!

Josh S. said...

The Baseball Gods balanced out that bad call from the Braves' 19-inning win.

(The Baseball Gods often mistake us for the Pirates.)

Dusty Baker said...

Can we sacrifice Mr. F to the baseball gods so maybe we'll finish .500?

Dusty Baker said...

A little Haiku from Mrs. Dusty (not necessarily re a play in this game):

There's a hit for Matt
Crack of the bat - RBI
MVP season

I disliked McCann more when he had those stupid math teachers glasses.

Dusty Baker said...

Well, that just happened.

Dusty Baker said...

"They did a double play together and it was so cute."

Drop a brother an email if you need some bar or bartender recommendations.

Back on the badge horse and up to 226.

Josh S. said...

Delino can be my next badge.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah but 67 of those were useless insight from me, Sax.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

What the hell happened!?!? I checked out at 5-2 Bravos, damn I suck

Fernie V said...

Guys I think the badge thing is broken. I already got the matt cain 6 strikeout badge.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up! Includes extra vitamins, plus a shout-out to you guys who commented in this GT tonight!

Steve Sax said...

@Fernie V: yeah, the badge thing gives phantom badges or triggers early every once in a while. Think of it like getting an extra ball from the pinball machine.
