Game 151 Thread: Sept. 17 vs. Pirates, 7p

"Welcome to L.A., kid. But I wouldn't buy a house here just yet."

T-Lilz (9-14, 4.39) vs. J-Mac (9-8, 4.09).

Can this be? According to Baseball Reference, old friend James McDonald has never faced his former team. That changes tonight, when the Dodgers can hopefully stick around until the fifth frame. "McDonald has allowed more runs in the fifth than in any other inning this year," MLB.com tells us. Lock those Bucs down, T-Lilz!

Just finished watching the Original Trilogy deleted scenes. I think Grandma Rebel Pilot is my new favorite character.

Getting ready to go to the game (e.g., drinking hard liquor so as to build a buzz foundation and therefore not have to spend as much cash on full-priced booze).

I think the beer is reasonably priced. Also, attendance is only down due to a rough economy and this team is only one impact player from a world title dynasty.

@Josh

Parking is also quick and efficient.

Problem is, that's not an overstatement at the moment.

Jason said...

I have to admit, the field level renovations are pretty impressive.

WOW.

That was a MONSTER blast by Loney standards.

Josh S. said...

A jingoistic USAA spot with Bruce Bochy? Good thing Dusty's at a game or he'd have a broken TV right now.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Where is everyone?

Josh S. said...

Uh, Vin? It's not Sept. 19.

Josh S. said...

Oh what the hell...

JUAN GONE!!!

Josh S. said...

Maybe J-Mac just sucks when he's in the same building as Honeycutt.

Josh S. said...

Does he still cry when he gets pulled, or was that just with us?

Fred's Brim said...

get him home, Jerry!

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

Fred's Brim said...

yuck

Fred's Brim said...

I dig Sellers. I sure hope he can hit a little bit

Steve Sax said...

Gordon, let's not get picked off or CS this time.

Steve Sax said...

We should have had more than 2 in the third inning, with a man on second and none out and J-Mac reeling (2 runs already in that inning)

Fred's Brim said...

nice grab, Miles

Fred's Brim said...

Jerry with another single, 1st and 2nd, one out, Federowiczicowicz about to ground into his first DP

Fred's Brim said...

Tim with the grounder through the left side to score Miles, 6-1 good guys!

Josh S. said...

LEADEROVICH.

Fred's Brim said...

Lilly gets the bunt down, runners at 2nd and 3rd, 2 outs, Dee Gordon about to pop up

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Hooray or Fedosotenyearitch!

Steve Sax said...

Wow we are rolling

Steve Sax said...

Rick Monday's math skills have grown to learn greater than / less than concepts

Fred's Brim said...

oops - Loney looked like Ryan Howard on that one

Steve Sax said...

Charley and Rick have spent two innings now giving oral sex to Mariano Rivera

Call the damn game you Yankees wannabes

Wipe up your drool, Charley

Fred's Brim said...

Matty keeps his good night going

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with the steal and advance to third on the bad throw.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I think we're the only section of the universe not watching boxing right now.

Fred's Brim said...

we are still terrible about getting guys home in these situations. We have to take these freebies when we are given them

Fred's Brim said...

I am glad we are up by 5 runs.
And the season was over 3 months ago.
Because that shit would infuriate me if this game actually meant something

Fred's Brim said...

holy moly, Jansen squashes the potential rally with two swinging Ks

Fred's Brim said...

why is this game taking so long?

Fred's Brim said...

this ump wonders the same thing. he wants to go home too

Fred's Brim said...

2 outs, then a walk and a single are keeping me from bed

Orel said...

PGT up!

Fred's Brim said...

grounder to short ends the game.
Nice game, fellas
time to make party and sleep
