Post-Game 76 Thread: Let Us Count the Ways

GIANTS 3, DODGERS 0

...in which the Dodgers lost today:

1. The Dodgers lost Andre Ethier to a strained left oblique. If Ethier goes on the DL and Matt Kemp doesn't return soon — like, right after the All-Star break — then it's sellin' time.

2. The Dodgers lost in their attempt to avoid being Tim Lincecum's rebound team. This was only Lincecum's third win, and his first in which the Giants didn't give up a run.

3. The Dodgers lost the game. Which seems like more of an afterthought right now.

4. The Dodgers lost the series by getting swept. The Giants outscored them 13-0. That's right, it was a scoreless sweep.

5. The Dodgers lost sole possession of first place and it looks like they'll lose it altogether...soon.

6. The Dodgers have lost 8 of their last 9. Up next are the Mets, who beat the Cubs 17-1 today. Who's up for more futility?

Looking forward to the @Dodgers tweet reminding us that we're still in first place!

Orel said...

@Dodgers: "The Dodgers, who have a Major League-best 24-12 (.667) record at home, head back to Los Angeles to open a 7-game homestand tomorrow vs. NYM."

Ice chips are great!

NO GUTS.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

@truebluela: "Dodgers in the Bay Area: 9 days, 6 games, 24 hits, 2 runs, 0 wins"

Hideo Nomo said...

I'd kill for those 2 runs right now.

Orel said...

Lakers get Dwight Howard!

Hideo Nomo said...

Can he hit for power?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Orel - The Woj account is fake.

Orel said...

Whoops! Fake tweet!

Orel said...

The three minutes of elation was worth it, though.

Hideo Nomo said...

Blame Marla.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Blame Laker Nation!

MR.F said...

Damn.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why do my comments keep disappearing?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Blame Laker Nation!

Paul said...

Sign all the Cubans!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Well, if all this hadn't been enough, RA Dickey will be pitching in my first Dodger game of the year.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gleam all the Cubes!!!

Paul said...

Even that Elian Gonzalez kid. He has got to be about 20.

Franklin Stubbs said...

If we're going to suck this bad, let's at least suck hard enough so we finally come to our senses and unload the dead weight from the lineup. Worst case here is another middling July with pointless acquisitions of gritty, useless veterans.

Paul said...

I'd like to see Van Slyke get more ABs

Paul said...

Maybe we can con someone to take Rivera.

NicJ said...

I swear this old lady that always calls into dodgertalk about Loney is his grandmother.

Neeebs * said...

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl.

Orel said...

That's the great thing about day games: they give you an extra six hours to absorb the pain of a loss.

Orel said...

@CSNBaggs: "AP telling us the Dodgers' equipment truck just broke down on the 101 freeway. ... Seriously."

NicJ said...

Just push it into the pacific.

Hideo Nomo said...

Coulda sworn it broke down before the series, since the bats never showed up.

knapS said...

Push me into the pacific!

Steve Sax said...

If the truck needs a spare tire we can just call Juan Uribe

knapS said...

Fuck it. I'll just jump into the motherfucker.

bye

Hideo Nomo said...

Don't worry about Spank. He jumps into the ocean about once a year to grab the fish for his naked sprints.

Alex said...

Balls.

knapS said...

Caught me a marlin byrd. I've been suspended from commenting on SoSG because of PED's until August or when the Dodgers score a run. Whichever comes first.

Hideo Nomo said...

See ya in August, Spanktopus.

Alex said...

^ That is why I read SoSG...

Sorry, Delio or whichever of you 'bastards' follows those blue & orange biters...

When will we be cutting bait at the corners?

The Mets are terrible against lefties and we'll have our stopper Cap and and Clayton going this weekend

Sadly we are terrible against pitchers and they'll have pitchers going this weekend

Fred's Brim said...

This all reminds me of 1991, but fastforwarded. I still want to strangle Juan Samuel

Hideo Nomo said...

"...we are terrible against pitchers..."

I just snorted.

Jason said...

Not just pitchers. How else to explain the Zito disaster?

Hell, Fernando could step out of the booth and 2-hit this offense today.

Paul said...

We signed a Cuban!!!!! Reportedly for 40 mil? That is a lot of cigars.
