Game 143 Thread Take 2: Sept 9 @ Giants, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (17-5, 2.45) vs. Timmah Lincecum (12-12, 2.75).

The Minotaur suits up against the long-haired pothead for the third time this year, having bested Lincecum on the two prior occasions (Opening Day and July 20). However, both games were complete pitchers' duels decided by a single run (1-0 and 2-1). Will good things come in threes for Kershaw? If he wants to end the year with an even 20 wins, Kershaw will need to win in three of (what will likely be only) four more starts. We're pulling for you, Kershaw!

Dusty Baker said...

Please yell at Timmeh for me, Fanerman!

Dusty Baker said...

ps- Wash yer hair, Timmeh!

Jason said...

Be sure to buy Tony Gwynn, Jr. plenty of drinks, Mr. F.

Steve Sax said...

I suppose to be fully accurate, for the top picture, good things come in sixes.

Dusty Baker said...

Make this game start already. I'm getting antsy.

Spank Horst said...

killKillKILL!!

Josh S. said...

Where did you get that middle pic of Miles, Carroll, and Sellers?

Dusty Baker said...

We have Gwynn and Gordon as MSBs, too.

Orlando Zepeda said...

I will also be at this game

Dusty Baker said...

@OZ

Tell Fanerman to wash his hair, too!

Orlando Zepeda said...

i sit behind the home dugout, I can yell many things.

Dusty Baker said...

I sit on my sofa; I can yell many things.

Steve Sax said...

Oz and fanerman: take a picture of you both at the game and send it to us, and we will post it!

Go Dodgers!

Spank Horst said...

I like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.

Dusty Baker said...

I like being spanked.

Josh S. said...

Having a Guys Night In with my kid, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Paul said...

I just drove thru the entire county of Los Angeles and now find out you'all will partying to tomorrow!!

On the crack pipe,Vinny!

Spank Horst said...

Fuck Timmeh with a broomstick!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck him with a broomstick SIDEWAYS.

Josh S. said...

BOOOOOOO!!!!!!

GET ON WITH IT!

Dusty Baker said...

Get a fuckin stopwatch, Jints. Let's play this god damned game.

Mr. Customer said...

Let's do this thing.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's work some counts.

Jason said...

@Dusty 5:04

Gwynn is actually taller than he looks. And has a hollow leg, apparently.

Josh S. said...

Way to make him work, idjits.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Jason

Maybe I'm deceived by his being called Jr.

Mr. Customer said...

Who is this new two-first-name fool?

Josh S. said...

I have a bad feeling about this.

Jason said...

I have a drunk feeling about this

(warms up liver for tomorrow)

Dusty Baker said...

Good to see Sands out there again.

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty best get her ass home with beer ASAP or I'mma get really grumpy.

Mr. Customer said...

@DB

That, and the fact that he ways as much as one of his pop's love handles.

Mr. Customer said...

I have a good feeling about getting drunk.

Josh S. said...

Ways?

Josh S. said...

Shitty shit shit.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm gonna put myself in the corner for that one.

I feel so ashamed...

NicJ said...

I'm so tired of Miles.

Why the fuck did he cut that off?

Mr. Customer said...

My brain is still buffering for the weekend.

NicJ said...

Went to highschool with Pill.

Weird seeing him on tv.

Mr. Customer said...

OK, time to pull this shit together.

Mr. Customer said...

I don't care much for Cody Ross.

Dusty Baker said...

Kershaw is on 78 pitches already.

Josh S. said...

DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!'nnnm

Dusty Baker said...

I would be getting a lot more excited about that acrobatic catch Gordon had for the third out if he hadn't committed an error earlier to screw up the whole inning.

Spank Horst said...

That is why you gotta love Dee Gordon. He may fuck up but he picks himself up like a man.

Great play,mutt.

Mr. Customer said...

Staunched the bleeding.

Dusty Baker said...

That's what we like about you, too, Spank.

Josh S. said...

There's the plate discipline we should have seen in the 1st.

Mr. Customer said...

Shit, that could be the parenthetical title of this blog.

Spank Horst said...

Booooooooo!

Mr. Customer said...

That'll do.

Spank Horst said...

I'm calling a homerun here.

Mr. Customer said...

Damn...

Dusty Baker said...

Sellers may be young and naive enough just to make something happen here.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, almost got all of that one.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, that's disappointing.

Dusty Baker said...

Here's a way not to get me to want to go to a horse racing track: play country music during the commercial.

Mr. Customer said...

I don't think we're the target demographic.

Mr. Customer said...

Clayton seems to have found his groove now.

Dusty Baker said...

Clayton got his groove back.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Yeah, but why do they target white trash demographic instead of a different one with more disposable income?

Mr. Customer said...

@DB

Economy of scale.

Mr. Customer said...

Works for Trucknutz, anyway.

Spank Horst said...

Here we go. Bring that shit!

Dusty Baker said...

Do your job, MSB!

Mr. Customer said...

Look here!

Mr. Customer said...

Nope.

Mr. Customer said...

Don't blow it.

Dusty Baker said...

You all know I'm a NL man. But god dammit, a huge difference i see b/t NL and AL is a consistent ability by AL teams to advance runners/convert runs with men in scoring position and no or only one outs. So fucking frustrating.

Mr. Customer said...

That's depressing.

Josh S. said...

I will now get as wasted as the Dodgers' opportunities.

Josh S. said...

Two of the Giants' rookie callups this year share names with objects you should keep away from a suicidal person.

Dusty Baker said...

I am going to get hammered. Fuck this shit. I'm going to drink expensive wine I was supposed to hold back, too. Just to prove...something.

Dusty Baker said...

I just want to make fun of people's names.

Spank Horst said...

The 9/11 bullshit is starting.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not going to punctuate correctly tonight, too just because I can.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn the 9/11 bullshit. Why didn't I book a trip to a far-flung country that doesn't give a shit?

Spank Horst said...

No one remembers the day Timmeh McVeigh bombed that shit.

Josh S. said...

I'm waiting until next week, so I can commemorate the 5 year anniversary of 9/18/06.

Dusty Baker said...

Charge the mound and cut Timmeh's hair, Sellers!

Spank Horst said...

Are the dodgers going to get a warning so they won't hurt the precious Gnats with a retaliation?

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, Spank.

#RedneckPieceofShit

Spank Horst said...

Goddamn HD looks fucking great!

Dusty Baker said...

Son of shit sucking saint. How god damned hard is it to move a runner over or in?

Spank Horst said...

Looks like the Dodgers fielded the seven dwarfs.

Dusty Baker said...

Those aren't dwarfs, they're Hobbits.

Spank Horst said...

You're out, bitch. Don't cry.

Spank Horst said...

Bochy just picked his ears and ate the wax.

Dusty Baker said...

Are those Gnats shirts polyester or what?

ps- Throw at Timmeh's face!

Dusty Baker said...

Or just make him look like a little bitch striking out.

Josh S. said...

TIMMEH INTERRUPTED VIN!

EXECUTE HIM!

Dusty Baker said...

^I just Tweeted something like that, Josh

Josh S. said...

Why the hell are they pressing?

Spank Horst said...

100!

Cc:Karina

Dusty Baker said...

Run up and hit Timmeh in the face with your bat, Jerry!

Spank Horst said...

I thought Sands was supposed to be great?

BOOOOOOOOOOO!

Spank Horst said...

Can we get some runs up in dis bish or what?!

Dusty Baker said...

If we don't get some runs, I'm going to have the runs.

Spank Horst said...

Fanerman's a pimp.

Dusty Baker said...

Vin just called Timmy, Timmy.

Dusty Baker said...

They ought to put "Fanerman's a pimp" on the Goodyear Blimp.

#IceCube

Spank Horst said...

Those orange Gnat uni's are almost as horrid as the Dodgers green baseball caps.

Dusty Baker said...

GOD DAMMIT

(drinks)

Paul said...

He is throwing a Shutout!! That jinx should work for any occasion right?

Spank Horst said...

6 more outs left to score no runs except for Dusty's toilet.

Paul said...

Panda can eat too much with either hand!

Paul said...

I can drink too much with either hand.

Mr. Customer said...

Why do we suck again?

Paul said...

This is when we unsuck and take the lead.

Mr. Customer said...

Show a little fucking patience, damn it!

Paul said...

Or maybe not...

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Blue! Unsuck!

Mr. Customer said...

(The team. I know better than to expect that of us.)

Paul said...

We have a hit!

Spank Horst said...

I love it when Vin say's little dribbler. Squibber, tambien.

Mr. Customer said...

Matt Kemp does not suck.

Paul said...

Cut his hair off with your speed Matty!!

Josh S. said...

Velez would kill for a hit like that.

Paul said...

Fuck yeah bitch!!!

Spank Horst said...

Suck it,Timmeh!

Mr. Customer said...

Hells yes!

Josh S. said...

NEW GAME, BITCHES.

Mr. Customer said...

I will have another of those, please.

Paul said...

I think Velez can only attempt to kill.

Spank Horst said...

Get a hit,Frodo!

Paul said...

That hit was kind of a droopler.

Spank Horst said...

I'm thinking Tony Gwynn should be standing on third base right now.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YOU, TIMMEH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Josh S. said...

Yes! Leave him in until his arm falls off!

Spank Horst said...

Make me a believer,Mutt!

#sands

Paul said...

Come on Jerry. Get a hit for Spanky!!

Mr. Customer said...

Be a man, Jerry!

Paul said...

They don't throw like that in the PCL.

Spank Horst said...

fuck

Mr. Customer said...

Well, at least we got the one.

Jason said...

I'm triple fisting booze until the Dodgers win.

cc: my liver

Josh S. said...

Eugenio Sands.

Josh S. said...

It can be devil jumping time now?

Dusty Baker said...

Up jumps Dusty!*

*To get another beer

Mr. Customer said...

God damn, I haven't been nervous about a baseball game in months.

I miss it.

Josh S. said...

FUCK YOUR ANKLE!

Jason said...

Injured with one step? Must be wearing Halloween Orange.

Spank Horst said...

I bet Loney bats at the top of the inning. Fucker.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Omg the gnats fans here are positively beside themselves after we tied it. Much polite trash-talking, though they've been mysteriously quiet the past 10 minutes now.
Go blue!!!!! (from down 1st base line halfway up on field level)

Spank Horst said...

PPR!

Dusty Baker said...

Represent, PPR!

Mr. Customer said...

Strong reader presence in enemy territory tonight.

Josh S. said...

THREE Sons readers in the house? We HAVE to win now!

Mr. Customer said...

Put this li'l bitch out of his misery.

Mr. Customer said...

Satisfactory.

Spank Horst said...

Kershaw just gave me a woody.

Dusty Baker said...

As long as Timmeh doesn't get the win, I'm vaguely happy.

Dusty Baker said...

Kershaw just gave me a buzz lightyear, Spank.

Josh S. said...

If Spank's woody had gone to the police, this never would have happened.

Dusty Baker said...

Single Rod!

Mr. Customer said...

Rod!

Josh S. said...

Sorry to correct you, oh mighty Vin, but Kershaw can still get a win.

Mr. Customer said...

*snicker*

Dusty Baker said...

Beautiful bunt, Sellers.

Spank Horst said...

Small ball. Literally.

Jason said...

There is an anatomically correct Ken doll joke in there somewhere.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Velez got on base (kinda)

Dusty Baker said...

I thought the same thing, Josh, then I just figured I was an idiot and that Vin was right.

Spank Horst said...

I've got an urge for halloween peanut butter candy.

Dusty Baker said...

SAFE!!!!!!

Spank Horst said...

FUCK YOU GNATS!!

hahahahahahahahahaha

Mr. Customer said...

W00t!!!

Josh S. said...

YESSSSSSSS.

Velez now only 99.9999999% worthless.

Dusty Baker said...

Props to Velez. You made that run happen. Credit where it's due.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Thanks for playing, gnats! You've caved yet another season to us. Smiling ear to ear!

Mr. Customer said...

That's why they call him a 1-tool player

Spank Horst said...

I'm getting a fresh brew for thew bottom of the ninth. Let's finish this.

Mr. Customer said...

Time to end this.

Josh S. said...

Table setters aren't setting the table tonight.

COME ON, JAVY!

Josh S. said...

Can't I just call him a tool?

Mr. Customer said...

I'll allow it.

Dusty Baker said...

What were the umps sweat in' Javy about?

I will cut them.

Mr. Customer said...

Quickly 1 down.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

1

Mr. Customer said...

Uno mas.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Spank Horst said...

Why am I all pumped up? Oh that's right. FUCK THE GNATS!

Mr. Customer said...

They're not giving him the corners, it seems.

Josh S. said...

Vin said the Giants "didn't repeat." I love this man.

WE WIN!

Spank Horst said...

I'm a happy man.

Mr. Customer said...

Now, we make PARTY!

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Good night!

I love this game.

Mr. Customer said...

For fear of jinx, I won't declare the Giant's season over, but it's basically over.

Jason said...

Making one game under .500 party.

Three times.

Jason said...

See you fellows tomorrow!

Josh S. said...

Whatever the result of tomorrow's game, we're toasting the shit out of this one at the fest tomorrow.

Mr. Customer said...

I'll drink to that.

Dusty Baker said...

You said a mouthful there, Josh. This one needs to linger.
