Game 147 Thread: Sept 13 vs. Snakes, 7p

Chad Billingsley (10-10, 4.30) vs. Ian Kennedy (19-4, 2.90).

Kennedy has been on the periphery of the NL Cy Young debate, but his W-L record and the fact that he's lost only once since July 3 make for a pretty nice resume. If Billingsley wanted to help out his teammate Clayton Kershaw and help pave Minotaur's way to a NL Cy Young award, beating Kennedy tonight would be a nice contribution. That's probably going to require Bills to go deep--at least into the fifth inning, for example--something he hasn't done in either of his last two starts. Get those Thunder Thighs working, Chad!

I didn't know what AJ stood for. Thanks Jason

MR.F said...

Really? Andrew James?

Jason said...

Question: Is it kosher to deduct the price of the beers you buy for "free" wifi at a bar when on the road for work? Seems like a work related expense to me...

At the New York Penn League championship series game 2 tonight, Auburn vs Staten Island. SI won the first of the best of 3. Go Doubledays!

More Js than in Timmah's equipment bag.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Does Old Hoss Radbourn know about the Auburn Doubledays?

Steve Sax said...

@Jason 4:26p: We used to call that "find the hat" at a firm at which I once worked

Safe travels!

Josh S. said...

Picking up badging again. Yadier Molina becomes # 231.

Jason said...

Thanks, Sax. Have a safe trip home, yourself.

Alex Cora said...

I hope the dodgers can get a win for Kershaw. Man wouldnt be great if he won the cy young? Ho hum...

Steve Sax said...

I'm having trouble loading my badge collection

The badge gods work against me

Fernie V said...

Chad will pitch a gem tonight, there is no pressure.

Fred's Brim said...

Ugh, they love GBA here. 1-0 Yankmes, bottom of the seventh. Auburn has hit into some hardluck outs. Hopefully that will turn.

Fred's Brim said...

2-1 Stankees. Fuck them in their homer bush

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Spank Horst said...

Ham on!

Dusty Baker said...

(already crying, Vinny!)

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Clayton's not getting the triple crown.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Dee!

Dusty Baker said...

Right back in dis shizz!

MR.F said...

Loney double?!?!?!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I take it back!

MR.F said...

Hot diggity!

Josh S. said...

I'd be more excited about four runs in the first if this wasn't a Bills start.

Steve Sax said...

True that.

Josh S. said...

Jerry's throw was so wide, he must have thought Dioner was still catching.

Dusty Baker said...

Up jumps the Dusty to make a cocktail. #Manhattan

Slow night here. 4-3 will not be the final score.

NicJ said...

here comes the part where bills gives up the lead and gives kennedy the cheap win.

Fred's Brim said...

Agreed, Nic

Fred's Brim said...

Young homer coming up

Fred's Brim said...

oh god, not GuhRear again

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

No way, man, our bullpen has got thi....

Oh, yeah. About last night.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, stupid

Fred's Brim said...

and give that goatee back to Randy Wolf

Fred's Brim said...

nice play, AJ
nice pitch, Chad

Dusty Baker said...

That IS Randy Wolf's goatee! Was it reported stolen?

Dusty Baker said...

You may be wrong, Nic. A dodgers reliever may give up the lead, not Bills.

Fred's Brim said...

the Az announcers were describing Ryan Roberts being that guy who you don't figure for much but gets big hits and is a general pain in the butt. I kept waiting for them to call him an MSB

NicJ said...

That J-Lo commercial wants to make me buy a Fiat and crash it into another Fiat.

Well played.

Fred's Brim said...

Two Fiats together? That's almost one full car!

Dusty Baker said...

Is that a Fiat commercial or an advert for a JLo song? I just don't know what to consume any more.

Fred's Brim said...

Mark Grace is a ninny

Fred's Brim said...

Is Aaron Miles is playing his way out of a 2012 contract with the Dodgers?

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Jerry. It's good to see him heating up

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, hold them for Clayton!

Fred's Brim said...

Kennedy looks like he's at the end of a hard-partying night

Fred's Brim said...

Good job Bills
Bad job, Donnie

Fred's Brim said...

Please be nasty, HCK

Dusty Baker said...

Which Kuo is here tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

nasty breaking ball to get Cowgill

Dusty Baker said...

That's what you get for squaring around to bunt. There's more where that came from!

Fred's Brim said...

relax, Gerrardo
I know you are karina's boy and all, but get back in the box

Fred's Brim said...

it's low-90s Kuo
fuck

NicJ said...

No loss for Kennedy and can possibly win it

Fred's Brim said...

fuck you Parra
tell him, Clayton!

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet shit-sucking jesus! Mother of butt slime. FUCK.

NicJ said...

Why is Parra such a little bitch?

Dusty Baker said...

THROW AT THE NEXT MOTHER FUCKER'S HEAD

Fred's Brim said...

Matt Williams can get a big dick sandwich

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to go fuck Matt Williams' wife.

Fred's Brim said...

the sandwich is large, the dicks are not

Fred's Brim said...

fuck her with the dick sandwich

Fred's Brim said...

there has to be a signal from the bullpen coaches that says "Kuo doesn't have it tonight"

NicJ said...

And now he brings in Jansen.

Fred's Brim said...

Kenley fastballs can cut through bone

Fred's Brim said...

no win, penis lips!

NicJ said...

well at least there goes any chance on Ian getting a win.

NicJ said...

of

NicJ said...

There is nothing i enjoy more than reading fresh new fantasy projections hot of the webpage.

Fred's Brim said...

I was preparing my brain to cheer for the DBags in the playoffs, but now I get to laugh when they get their punkasses swept by a real baseball in October

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Anything I need to be aware of, fantasy wise?

A brother got lucky this past week. I fear for next week.

Dusty Baker said...

That was a filthy pitch to get Montero out.

Fred's Brim said...

^team

Fred's Brim said...

that was a filthy pitch that ended up as a pop double

NicJ said...

@DB, i scored the third least amount of points. You probably should just keep doing what your doing.

Fred's Brim said...

I am already sick of fantasy football

Fred's Brim said...

shut yer trap, Young. You were lucky your ass wasn't on the bench after the pitch before that one

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

@Dusty - You should add Adrian Peterson. I hear he's a free agent.

NicJ said...

The main thing that sucks about our league is its too big. Not enough running backs to go around. I wish there was some way to set it to where we were allowed 1RB, 2FLX, and 2WR.

NicJ said...

either that or PPR to at least boost scoring.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

PPR? Qui moi?

btw, old news, but, Parra's a little bitch.

Fred's Brim said...

get this done without me, fellas.
If you end up scrapping, save Mark Grace for me
gnite yall

el montanero said...

I'm really starting to love the hell out of Guerra.

*Uses Astronomy book to hide boner*

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Straighten that shit out, Sands.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I tried to straighten my shit out once. It...was messy.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

euuuwwwwwww

I'm still holding out hope White Bread pans out.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Alrighty, 1st and 2nd. Hero Time, Dee.

Dusty Baker said...

Why are we not throwing at some assholez? I need some closure.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Yeah, I was kinda expecting a brush-back at least from Guerra. But, since he just scorches Upton, I'm glad he didn't.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

God damn it.

el montanero said...

Goddammit!

Fernie V said...

what the hell was that

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

I'm guessing his fingernail was bugging him again. Kinda pissed Donnie didn't crank up the pen sooner.

Fernie V said...

That sucked I should of just gone to bed.

Fernie V said...

Catcher til Jr High?

Fernie V said...

0-3, he is due.

el montanero said...

Fuck you, MLB Gameday and your stupid strikeout graphics! *grumbles*

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Well, at least Kennedy didn't get the win.

el montanero said...

Good eye, boracho.

Fernie V said...

Velez magic time?

el montanero said...

Yeah, I can't root for AZ in the playoffs. Don't care if Gibby is the manager or not.

Fernie V said...

That sucked, I should of just gone to bed earlier.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

There's gonna be a fight tomorrow night if Kersh throws at Parra in the 6th or so, once his count is up.

Night all.

Orel said...

PGTUP

el montanero said...

At least Kennedy didn't win and the Giants are one step closer to being eliminated from the playoff race. C'mon, Madres!
