Game 155 Thread: Sept. 22 vs. Giants, 7p

Hiroki Kuroda (12-16, 3.19) vs. Madison Bumgarner (12-12, 3.21).

Dodgers' last home game of the year. Giants on the brink of elimination. Hiroki Kuroda's $175,000 bonus for pitching one inning will be worth it tonight if he can go on and get the win. Gambatte!

Sax is at 380 badges. One more row to complete the 24th case.

Steve Sax said...

Mets score four in the top of the ninth to tie the game against WC-hunting St Louis...

6-6 and the Mets are still batting with the bases juiced and two out

Steve Sax said...

Mets take an 8-6 lead. Ouch.

Josh S. said...

Austin Jackson becomes my 251st badge. I had that great initial surge, but kind of lost interest in badging when MLB kept putting up the same three guys every night.

Steve Sax said...

TB score 3 in the first inning to take a 3-0 lead on the Yank-Mes.

Rays are 2.5 games behind idle Boston. Angels are scoreless with Toronto in the first.

Josh S. said...

If the current standings hold, the following former Dodgers will be playing in the postseason (pending rosters, of course):

Andruw Jones
Russell Martin
Scott Proctor
Corey Wade
Wilson Betemit
Brad Penny
Adrian Beltre
Derek Lowe
David Ross
George Sherrill
Craig Counsell
Takashi Saito
Randy Wolf

Fuck Victorino. He doesn't count.

Cardinals would bring Rafael Furcal, Octavio Dotel, Edwin Jackson, and Ryan Theriot if they made it.

I may have missed one or two others.

Jason said...

Bobby Parnel becomes badge 255.

Still can't sort the case, though.

Josh S. said...

Sax, Bobby Parnell is my Black costume Spider-Man.

MR.F said...

Mets win, D-Bags and Braves idle?

Alex Cora said...

@ Josh S. Nice list. Andruw fing Jones. Sigh.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Talk about carrying dead weight, re: fat turd bastard.

Neeebs said...

At the stadium Vinny.

Mr. Customer said...

Limping down the home stretch, Vinny!

Mr. Customer said...

Poop

Josh S. said...

Trying to figure out why Marla compulsively live tweets sitcoms, Vinny!

Mr. Customer said...

Well, that's better!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

You love it, Josh, and you know it.

Josh S. said...

This Juan is single-handedly outperforming the three Juans that preceded him.

Mr. Customer said...

Dodgers gonna go all "War of 1812" on Madison here?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

@Mr. C - They're gonna destroy his house?

Fred's Brim said...

howdy, yall!

I always seem to miss the Dodgers scoring their runs. I hope Hiro can hold this lead. Or should I go to bet early?

Fred's Brim said...

Tommy has crazy fingers

Josh S. said...

Howdy, FB!

Fred's Brim said...

good inning, Hiro!

Mr. Customer said...

@mlasc

Possiblly...

I've seen quite a few futile bombardments this year, so that may also be likely.

That, and the Giants will have to wait until the tenth inning of a nine-inning game to do anything really effective.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

To New Orleans!

Fred's Brim said...

what's poppin, Josh?

I am sad this is the last home game.
This season has mostly been steamy ball sweat but this last month or so has been a lot of fun.

Mr. Customer said...

...and don't fuck with Canada.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

"Steamy Ball Sweat" was my nickname in high school.

Jason said...

One more year, Hiro!
Last haiku game forever?
Fuck Victorino!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Great Community,
but if I say any more,
Josh will murder me.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Cheeseburgers for Josh,
celebrating his last day.
Hernandez says "Yay!"

Jason said...

Watching Giants' feed
All Raiders between innings
Feel need to riot

Neeebs said...

I don't get haiku.

Josh S. said...

NBC Thursday
Marla goes Twitter-happy
Just watch the damn show

Fred's Brim said...

damnation, I thought that was going to slice away from Beltran

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Juan!

Jason said...

Dee Gordon is fast
Jerry is kinda dreamy
Juan gets paid next year

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Tormenting Josh S
is the source of all my joy.
Shove it up your butt!

Spank Horst said...

I was busy reading sitcom updates on twitter that i missed how the Doyers scored.

Mr. Customer said...

Klassy

Jason said...

Haiku not Neeebs' thing
Everyone is Neeebs' mom's thing

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

I know who the new
boss is. It will blow your mind.
Fuck Victorino!

Jason said...

Fat Panda is slow
Huff is what he does to food
Not who protects him

Josh S. said...

[insert fat/skinny joke I'm too lazy to think up here]

Jason said...

Where is DelinO?
SC ad behind home plate
Too much Mets action?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Aw fuck it, I'm too lazy to do another haiku with you guys.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck Victorino!
Really, Fuck Victorino!
Fuck Victorino!

Jason said...

MLAAC
It's just me with the haiku
I'm an idiot

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Dammit, my last post was also a haiku. I'm an idiot.

Spank Horst said...

SPEEDEE!

MR.F said...

Wotchale!

Jason said...

One more syllable
makes the Czar an idiot
yet again like me

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If the standard sitcom wasn't dead already, Whitney killed it.

Mr. Customer said...

MVP, baby!

Spank Horst said...

Lasorda doesn't bleed blue, he bleeds marinara sauce.

Jason said...

Giants' giveaway:
Tony Bennett bobblehead
Dodgers: Sinatra?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

KLAC lives again: Dodgers move to 570AM next season.

Jason said...

No more days off left
Go deep into their bullpen
Leave the G'nats stranded

Spank Horst said...

One run in
Rancho Ackbariendo
FUCK THE GNATS!

Jason said...

Dodger offense pleads:
One more season Hiroki,
we can do better!

Josh S. said...

Neeebs and Mary Hart
Macking hard behind home plate
Cannot be unseen

Jason said...

Kemp* damn you, Josh S
Image is stuck in my head.
(* 'cause Kemp is a god)

Dusty Baker said...

Who is this Ethier guy, again?

Fred's Brim said...

I love Fernando

Josh S. said...

Treading on Kobe territory with MVP chants and triple-doubles.

Fred's Brim said...

Gordon with a walk

wait, what?

Jason said...

Six total bases
Kemp more than an MVP
New award needed

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Matt Kemp is good at baseball.

Fred's Brim said...

heh you can see through Gordon's uniform. I am glad he's wearing a Dodgers shirt underneath it

Jason said...

Panda a fat fuck
Still nothing changing that fact
Good guys up by four

Josh S. said...

Douchebag from Tuesday
You got your damn Panda Bomb
Now, go fuck yourself

Jason said...

Pablo's shiny spot
Glitter on his cheek tells us
Wilson's a strippers.

Fred's Brim said...

so help me, Loney better take this hitting into next season

Fred's Brim said...

Mattingly's gonna wear out Jansen.
I hope he limits him after tonight

Fred's Brim said...

Movies FB will not be seeing: Killer Elite

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

We have our boots on the Gnats' throats. I don't care if we go through the whole pen and use Loney for the save. We need to put these bastards down now so they don't have a chance to advance (cc: Josh). Tragic # if we win is down to 1, right?

Jason said...

Thought Ackbar got one
Turned into a can of corn
Carroll will be missed

Fred's Brim said...

*ire rising*

Fred's Brim said...

*ire bubbling*

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Hiro

Jason said...

Ahahahaha
Zito up in Giants' pen
Mop up for millions

Fred's Brim said...

Burrell's from Arkansas? I bet Dusty boned his sister, and Ditty nailed his mom

Josh S. said...

@DB

1 for the West, but 3 for the WC. Atlanta's fading down the stretch.

Josh S. said...

^ Shards between them, though.

Jason said...

All those years in the
NL west, Atlanta owes
the Dodgers this year

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Kenley. way to work out of that

el montanero said...

Wow.

Fred's Brim said...

wha? 2 walks?

Fred's Brim said...

holy shit

Mr. Customer said...

HELL FUCKING YES!!!!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

what else does he have to do?

Paul said...

MVP!!!!!!!!!!

Jason said...

I got nothing. Matt Kemp is a golden god!

Orel said...

KEMvP!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hot damn.

el montanero said...

M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!

Orel said...

"That's not a bat he uses, that's a magic wand." —Vin, on Kemp

Steve Sax said...

Kemp goes out in STYLE.

36!

MR.F said...

WHOO BISON!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp

el montanero said...

I've decided that I'm going to have Kemp's babies.

Fred's Brim said...

I like the big hug he got from Barajas

Fred's Brim said...

man, Jerry looks uncomfortable out there sometimes

el montanero said...

*Does a Snoopy dance*

el montanero said...

What the hell do the Giants see in this Belt kid? His bat speed is for shit.

el montanero said...

*Wipes egg from face*

Fred's Brim said...

I think Matty's greatest stat this year is his runs scored. He is leading the league by a few with absolutely nobody behind him to drive him in

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Scotty, lock it down

Fred's Brim said...

Now we make MVParty!

Jason said...

I'm making party
'Cause the Giants blow again
And more Vin next year.

Fred's Brim said...

Cram it with walnuts, VaGiants!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Wooooooo!

Mr. Customer said...

I appreciate ending on a positive note.

Fred's Brim said...

Goodnight, Vin!

and goodnight SOSGers

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

All is right in the universe.

Dusty Baker said...

Lock down with your cock down, Scotty! Hells yeah.

Mr. Customer said...

Bonsoir, all!

Mr. Customer said...

Goddamn, I was dragging ass, but that Kemp HR got me all hot and bothered again.

*gets another beer*

Dusty Baker said...

Sounds like you're cold and bothered then, Mr. C.

Mr. Customer said...

In progress

Orel said...

PGTUP!
