Game 142 Thread Take 2: Sept 8 vs. Nats, 10a

Chad Billingsley (10-10, 4.15) vs. Chien-Ming Wang (2-3, 4.19).

Wednesday's game was re-scheduled into the first half of today's doubleheader, since yesterday's game was Wash-ed away. And if you thought that Stephen Strasburg 2011 debut was sparsely attended, just wait until you see the crowds for this game, with Billingsley (Dana Eveland got pushed to the second game) vs. a Wash-ed up Wang. Get psyched to play two, people!

Just updated the post since Eveland is pitching in the second game.

Ethier sits. Sands gets his first start in a while. Interesting.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers badges today:
Bills 5 Ks
Ethier 2B (kinda hard if he's not starting)
Guerra S

Hey Sax, my iPhone hasn't quit after fully loading.

Fernie V said...

Never mind, it is such a habit I guess I didn't notice I had stopped the loading myself. Still shit downs once fully downloaded.

Jason said...

Crowd at the stadium will be one short today since I'm no longer in D.C.

I expect SoSG Fest on Saturday to complete the process of killing me via alcohol consumption.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Just read Ethier is likely out for the year with that bum knee.

I guess that means more playing time for Sands

Josh S. said...

Digging that Gordon, Sellers, and Sands are all in the lineup today. Wish I could actually SEE the game.

Josh S. said...

Steve Lombardozzi, aka The Brooklyn Brawler!

The Gameday ads are ludicrous. Play the ads if you must, but don't prevent me from checking the game summary or the boxscore.

Fred's Brim said...

The first line of the AP story on Dre getting shut down:

"Andre Ethier’s terrific 2011 season is over."

I think they typed that the day his 30-game hit streak ended

Josh S. said...

@FB: They misspelled terrible.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Rivera is an RBI machine.

Fred's Brim said...

@Josh, we should probably submit it to Damn You Auto Correct

Fred's Brim said...

I thought Dee was fast

Fred's Brim said...

we've had a lot of dudes thrown out at home the last two weeks

Fred's Brim said...

Rivera cleans up the mess once again

Fred's Brim said...

he's gonna get himself re-signed, isn't he?

Fred's Brim said...

As Rod showed last year, there is no such thing as a contract year, just a contract month

Fred's Brim said...

I hope Jerry can start feeling normal at the plate before the season ends, even if it's just a good week or 10 days.

Fred's Brim said...

And Chadley promptly gives the runs back. Wonderful

Fred's Brim said...

Chad is terrific today

Mr. Customer said...

This is going well.

Josh S. said...

Chad is also an RBI machine.

Josh S. said...

Two and a third? Christ.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

On the plus side, Mattingly said Ethier will be good and ready by Spring Training, which means he'll still be on the team!

DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, my iPhone game day won't load the game, just the radio broadcast

Steve Sax said...

Why the hell did they fuck with a perfectly good GameDay now, and make it buggy so it doesn't load?

Boooooo

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Chad should go with Ethier and take the rest of the year off...

Steve Sax said...

Fuck it, I will use the iPad instead

Steve Sax said...

4-4 through six

Fred's Brim said...

4-4 through seven

Josh S. said...

You ALWAYS want the first game of a doubleheader to go to extras.

Josh S. said...

I'm calling it now. Both games go at least 18.

Josh S. said...

Or not.

I'm happy to be wrong.

Mr. Customer said...

New rule. The Dodgers will go out drinking with Jason at every available opportunity.

Neeebs said...

Can we hold the 9th?

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C:

Does that mean WE'LL start excelling at our jobs after this Saturday night?

Mr. Customer said...

It's not outside the realm of possibility.

Mr. Customer said...

AC is still playing?

Orlando Zepeda said...

who pitches tomorrow?

Josh S. said...

Did we win?

Fred's Brim said...

Great win! I don't like having to bail out our starters every time, but I'll take it!

Josh S. said...

I'm just happy they figured out that they CAN bail out the starters.

Fred's Brim said...

I like that Javy responded to Tuesday's near meltdown with a clean 9th

Steve Sax said...

Next GT up!
