Game 142 Thread: Sept 7 @ Nats, 4p POSTPONED

Dana Eveland (1-0, 1.13) vs. Chien-Ming Wang (2-3, 4.19).

The Dodgers have split the first two games with the Nationals, and today they throw Eveland, who went eight innings against the Pirates in his last start (his first of the year). He's up against a pitcher who is known for his fall from Yankees' grace, as well as horrible wordplay deriving from his last name. I, however, will forsake such low-hanging fruit.

But I will say that I hope the Dodgers make the Nats take one on the Chien.

UPDATED 3:24p PT: Game has been postponed due to wet grounds; they'll play two games starting at 10a tomorrow. Great, now I have to think up another lame pun.

Dee Gordon (@skinnyswag9) on Twitter at 1:30 after apparently just hearing the news that the team was heading to the stadium:

Really?...

Neeebs said...

They called this game a rainout hours ago. Apparently they did a re-do and decided to play.

So now everybody can Wang Chien tonight.

Josh S. said...

Now it's OFF again.

I repeat, NO GAME.

Unless there is a game, in which case, there may be a game, unless it is canceled, meaning no game.

Tomorrow there will be two games, unless those are canceled. In that case there will be four games, or maybe one.

When they said "these games won't be played, probably end up with 159 game seasons for these clubs" i thought "watch them play all 3" lol

{insert Neeebs Mom joke here}

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 1.27p: Yes, I was hip.

But no, there's no game.

Josh S. said...

Hip replacement more like it.

Steve Sax said...

Ouch!

Well, we can scoreboard watch SF@SD (SF failed to score in the top of the first)

Steve Sax said...

Will Venable homers off of Matt Cain's second pitch of the game.

1-0 SD after 1.

Josh S. said...

I have all six badges in the SF/SD game. No need to set a trap.

Josh S. said...

I also have all six in Cubs/Reds.

MR.F said...

gnats-Mads are tied.

MR.F said...

San Diego retakes the lead!!!

Steve Sax said...

dammit, first and third with one out, and the padres can't score. sounds like the dodgers, pre-august.

2-1 SD after 7.

Steve Sax said...

3-1 SD on a Cameron Maybin one-out triple, scoring Venable

SF calls for Mota from the pen

Steve Sax said...

Padres up 3-1 through 8

Steve Sax said...

leadoff single for the giants, negated by a 5-4-3 DP

Steve Sax said...

FINAL, Padres win 3-1

SF falls to 6.5 back pending the outcome of the Arizona @ Colorado game

Mr. Customer said...

But can we still catch them? I'd settle for that.

Fred's Brim said...

We get to watch Trayvon Robinson on ESPN instead
*cries*

Fred's Brim said...

and Trayvon hits a homerun in the sixth to break up the no-hitter and scoreless tie

Mr. Customer said...

At least he's screwing the angels over.

Dusty Baker said...

Can't you just re-pun?

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck the Angels. I hate their overly-family friendly broadcasts. But it's all I have to watch tonight.

Spank Horst said...

They are showing Primal Fear. Whatever happened to Erin/Katie?

Dusty Baker said...

162 badges...didn't have time to set any traps today.

Josh S. said...

227 badges.

No place, child!

I hope somebody GIFed Nyjer Morgan's "Fuck YOU!" to Pujols.
