Game 102 Thread: July 28 @ Giants, 1p

Let me guess...you started following the Giants in 2010, right?

Chad Billingsley (5-9, 4.15) vs. Barry Zito (8-6, 3.75).

What, we have to play again? Normally, we would expect a ThunderThighs vs. Dreamboat Barry match-up to bode well for us, but we need only look to yesterday's game for a reminder about expectations.

Don Mattingly is switching things up today against the lefty Zito, leading off with Mark Ellis and batting Andre Ethier second in front of Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez.

Oh, and Hanley trade bait Nathan Eovaldi is starting later today for the Marlins against the Padres. Knock 'em dead, Nate!

So far, all of my friends are either too busy to go to the game tomorrow or are priced out (wine and cheese hippy prices). Do I dare go to the game tomorrow alone to meet up with Sax and possibly Eugenio's Streak?

Dusty Baker said...

Get there, Fanerman!

Steve Sax said...

@Eugenio's Streak, you gotta email us if you're in

@mr F, email as well, but you have to come. How much are tickets?

MR.F said...

Straight from the Giants is like $60 for non-standing room seats (except for bleacher where I refuse to sit)

I've been monitoring stubhub and it looks like prices drop down to $35-40 by the day of the game. I may be able to convince someone to go with me at that price.

Most likely I'll be at the game, either alone or with a friend.

MR.F said...

Should I just email the main SoSG account? Why don't you just email me?

Steve Sax said...

I don't know if I've got your email

Steve Sax said...

Well I just met you
And this sounds crazy
But if you're wearing Dodgers gear at the game tomorrow
Then email me maybe

Dusty Baker said...

Interesting tidbit from Dodgers:

Last night, Fife became the 1st hurler in big league history to oppose pitchers who have thrown perfect games in his first two MLB starts.

MR.F said...

Email sent!

Dusty Baker said...

At Bat Gameday is about two pitches ahead of the radio broadcast.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Spank's boyfriend needs to practice hitting the cut-off man.

Spank Horst said...

he hit the cutoff man on that one

Spank Horst said...

Matty on first base for Ethier to strike out.

Spank Horst said...

My bad. Hanley is up.

Dusty Baker said...

Suck it, Zito. Hope you get T-boned in WeHo tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

Commentators saying HanRam ran thru the sign at 3b. Wha? If so, then the sign was wrong. It was heads up base running and he scored easily. He would have scored safely even if the throw would have been on target. Don't know why commentators are griping.

karina said...

karina said...

Steve Sax said...

Save some of these runs for tomorrow, Boys!

Spank Horst said...

Ruh oh. Javy coming in.

Dusty Baker said...

This FOX broadcast team is really, really down on Dodgers and their chances based on the September sched. On the other hand they seem to think Gnats are home free.

(Mutes)

Steve Sax said...

Bases loaded for the Giants, bottom 8 2 out, Guerra shaky

Spank Horst said...

Shutout still intact

Steve Sax said...

Hey hey! We escape the eighth

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: tell Tim mccarver and the fox team to stick it

Dusty Baker said...

46-1

Dusty Baker said...

AJellis has us with a chance to add to our lead. One man on, one out. TGJ up.

karina said...

Dusty Baker said...

They just showed Matt Treanor in the dugout and he looked very happy.
