Game 76 Thread: June 27 @ Giants, 12:45p

Chad Billingsley (4-6, 4.15) vs. Tim Lincecum (2-8, 6.07).

Is this the end of the Dodgers' first-half glory? His Thighness, the consistently inconsistent Bills, will fight to keep the Dodgers in sole possession of first place, while the consistently bad Timmeh will do his best to hold the Dodger bats to their fastidious vow of silence in the Bay Area. We miss ya, Matty!

Make the bad men stop.

It hit me hard this morning when I saw we had lost 2-0 and all I could do was a chuckle and mutter "Of course we did."

Hideo Nomo said...

I slept through last night's game, but then, so did the team.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I am glad that work relieves me of the responsibility of deciding whether to watch this or not.

Hideo Nomo said...

I am similarly occupied, thankfully.

MR.F said...

I think we got this one, guys!!!!!!!!!

Jerry Hairston Jr. 2B

meh

Paul said...

Sign all the Cubans!!!

Paul said...

I am getting so much shit from the orange and black fans....I usually only feel this down during Sept when the Dodgers and Rams are both losing.

Hideo Nomo said...

Smoke all the Cubans!

Hideo Nomo said...

That lineup is bottom-heavy, to say the least.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

IDJ PH HR. Calling it.

Paul said...

Of the 8, I see 2 legit starters, 5 bench players and a lard bucket that needs to be dumped. Then we have Chadley who always looks like he just saw Uribe naked.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@Paul Uribe should play naked. Maybe that will wake up the offense.

Orel said...

I have very little faith. But I will be following along on Gameday.

Neeebs * said...

I say we win in a laugher!


But I'm a founding member of the Flaming Menudos, what do I know?

Paul said...

@Neeebs

You know finding a sober trumpet player in El Centro Ca is not as easy as it sounds.

Orel said...

Andy Pettitte fractured his ankle.

MR.F said...

Man that sucks for Petite. I have him on my fantasy team, too... =/

Paul said...

Are you saying bad things happen to teams other than the Dodgers?

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

Well, the Yankees have the best record in baseball. Will be interesting to see if they engage in a Kempless-type death spiral.

Orel said...

BUNT DEE BUNT

Orel said...

"Let me make you feel at home, Mr. Lincecum, by striking out on four pitches. Have a nice day! T.J. Simers likes me!"

MR.F said...

Timmah looks like more of an emo stoner than usual in his Yahoo gameday picture.

Orel said...

JHJ singles! Ethier walks! Let's see how we W this O.

Orel said...

If you had Rivera DP, collect your prize! Which is a punch in the face!

Paul said...

This feels familiar ...

Orel said...

@dylanohernandez: "Don Mattingly and Sue Falsone out to see Andre Ethier in the middle of the first inning."

They're probably not trading fashion tips.

MR.F said...

GIDP ends a good opportunity...

Paul said...

I am going on a hunger strike till the Dodgers score a run.

NicJ said...

With Ethier out I think that means AJEllis is the team leader in HR.

(cries)

Orel said...

The surprise isn't that the Giants' leadoff hitter singled, but that it took him four pitches to get around to it.

Orel said...

MSTI: "Not sure I've ever seen a team go from 'best record in baseball' to 'hey, maybe they should be sellers' as quickly as the 2012 Dodgers."

MR.F said...

Herrera in for Ethier. Auspicious start...

Paul said...

Down to 1 legit starter....kindof.

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOO

Paul said...

Dodgers don't have anything worth selling.

Orel said...

We could sell a one-on-one game with Magic. That should be worth something.

Orel said...

Ned Colletti should win GM-of-the-First-Two-and-a-Half-Months-of-the-Season Award. Highly coveted honor.

Paul said...

Give him the award and then fire him.

MR.F said...

The gnats are so ugly. Timmah, Oyster. EW.

Orel said...

Is Chad at 120 pitches yet?

MR.F said...

Our lineup sucks, but I'm not down on Chad at least.

Orel said...

Chad has 3 Ks in 2 innings.

Orel said...

You're one of the few, Mr. F.

MR.F said...

Billz double!!!!

Orel said...

Chad's like, Do I gotta do everything around here myself?

Orel said...

Steal third, Chad!

Orel said...

Bills out at home on a WP? WTF?

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

NicJ said...

Robot umpires!!

MR.F said...

Was he really safe?!

Orel said...

I like how Gameday uses the most infuriating adjectives. "Ryan Theriot singles on a soft line drive."

Orel said...

1-0 Giants. Game over.

MR.F said...

Nooooooooo

NicJ said...

Well...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like this losing stuff.

MR.F said...

FUCKKKKKKKKK

Orel said...

Chad walks in a run. 2-0 Giants.

Paul said...

I am starving.

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

Good job, Chad. Ks Sandoval.

MR.F said...

Pandfuck strikes out to end the inning.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Two runs might as well be 54.

MR.F said...

I can't help but think that this is the game where Lincefuck gets his season together.

Orel said...

Hairston singles. He should bring camping supplies to first base.

Orel said...

Herrera first-pitch swinging for an out! Way to work the count!

Orel said...

OH AND IT'S A BUNT POP OUT

MR.F said...

How did Hairston make it to 2nd?

Paul said...

Gameday says Dre left the game due to an injury side? Not an injury side!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WHY?!?!?!

Orel said...

Ethier has a strained left oblique.

Paul said...

This is becoming far worse than I could possibly imagine.

Orel said...

This is all @Dodgers fault for tweeting all the time how we had the best record in the majors.

Orel said...

So much for Andre in the HR Derby!

MR.F said...

Smooth inning for Chad aside from the error.

Orel said...

Don't worry, guys. Uribe is on base.

Orel said...

Hope Chad smacks a homer here.

Orel said...

Giants batters know how to go deep into counts. Bills at 83 pitches in the 5th.

Orel said...

Posey works the 10-pitch walk. Next Dodger batter will swing at the first pitch.

MR.F said...

WHOOO. HR Cespedes! I can cheer for my fantasy team here, right?

Paul said...

I see Irvin isn't tweeting about the Dodgers much these days.

Orel said...

3-0 Giants

Neeebs * said...

Have we scored yet? You know, Paul missed lunch and he's getting hungry. And when Paul gets hungry he starts singing Barry Manilow tunes.

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOO

NicJ said...

Where is the PGT?

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Neeebs

Vegas now have the odds at 5:1 he leads with "When October Goes". You know, to stay topical.

Orel said...

Rivera single to lead off the seventh! Who's betting DP in this inning? Step right up!

Neeebs * said...

PJ does a mean Copa Cabana.

Paul said...

Oh Matty well you came and you gave with out taking...

Paul said...

Way to work the count on a guy with a 100 plus pitches.

Alex said...

PISS

Orel said...

I will give Juan this: at least he went down swinging.

Paul said...

Does Ensure count as food? I think I can take some from the Senior Center down the street.

NicJ said...

Look at it this way, if the Dodgers were golfing they would be kicking ass.

Orel said...

Shoulda bunted, Dee!

NicJ said...

This tweet from this twitter handle made me LOL:

@YoPussyStinkHoe: James Harden & Pau Gasol being disrespected

#OhTheIrony

Orel said...

Keep swinging at the first pitch! Sooner or later they'll serve up a meatball!

Orel said...

Why Beli?

Spank said...

FUCK YOU ROMO!

Orel said...

PGTUP

Alex said...

Fucking embarrassing

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Alex said...

When will we be cutting bait at the corners?
