Game 84 Thread: July 5 @ Snakes, 6:40p

Wade, Miley!

Nathan Eovaldi (0-5, 4.61) vs. Wade Miley (9-4, 2.87)

One day after Billy Ray Cyrus invaded Dodger Stadium and butchered the National Anthem and GBA, the Dodgers head to Arizona to take on the guy who can't escape Miley Cyrus jokes. I've had it up to here with all these Cyrii!

Yet, Miley is an All-Star (I mean, yeah, Hannah Montana was a HUGE success! Sorry.), and the Dodgers have to counter with offense-inhibiting, run-allowing, winless Schleprock, Nathan Eovaldi. Despite the struggling D-Backs getting swept by the lowly Padres, I'm not feeling too confident about maintaining that half-game hold on first place.

So, uh...Go Nats! Beat the Gnats!

Hope you deleted your search history, Nomo.

Things not starting well in DC.

Hideo Nomo said...

MR.F said...

I've "heard" that Miley Cyrus is not a fan of bras.

Orel said...

Giants lead 2-1, top 3

NicJ said...

Dee goes down for 6 weeks, ugh.

Orel said...

Dee to the Dee-L for six weeks.

NicJ said...

So when does Ned clear out the farm for Scutaro?

MR.F said...

Sigh Dee....

Orel said...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Orel said...

Hideo Nomo said...

Fack.

Orel said...

5-3 Giants, bot 7

Orel said...

5-4 Giants, still bot 7...

Orel said...

Damn you, Ryan Zimmerman. Score stays at 5-4 going into the 8th.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fuck the Giants with a rusty soup ladle.

Steve Sax said...

5-4 SF, top 8, one out

Steve Sax said...

Giants retired in top 8. 5-4 SF

Orel said...

I hope Sergio Romo pulls a Tony Romo here.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Mark Ellis, you make our infield ever-so-slighly less fulite.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hot damn!

Franklin Stubbs said...

2-0! an embarrassment of riches for Eovaldi.

MR.F said...

1st inning offense!!!!!!!!!!!

Orel said...

Romo hits ESPNosa! Two on, two out, bot 8.

Orel said...

There's 200% of your run allotment, Eo.

Orel said...

DAMMIT Romo wriggles off the hook.

Hideo Nomo said...

Scott Van Sloney.

MR.F said...

Romo gets out of jam =(

Orel said...

Runs for Eovaldi are like minor-league per diem: gotta stretch it as far as it will go.

Orel said...

"Justin Upton grounds out softly." Just like he croons.

BJ Killeen said...

Glad Ellis squared is back. And we all did ask God to stop GordOn from bunting, so I guess We need to be more specific in what we ask for. ⚾

BJ Killeen said...

Stupid gmail. Duplicated the comment.

knapS said...

I'm not a fan of bras either. Clothes tambien.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I burnt all my bras long ago. Pantyhose on the other hand...

MR.F said...

Harper at the plate, 0 outs, runners on 1st and 3rd.

Orel said...

Nats tied it up!

Steve Sax said...

Wash ties it!

Orel said...

And they're IBBing the bases loaded with no out. Always a good idea.

Cliff Beefpile said...

GO NATS!!!

MR.F said...

Nats tie it. Bases loaded, 0 outs.

Orel said...

Nats win!

MR.F said...

Boo. 1 out and bases loaded. Just hit a fly ball!

Steve Sax said...

Giants lose!

Orel said...

Uh oh, Eo in a little jam here.

MR.F said...

Yay!!!!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hooboy.

MR.F said...

Now Eo has bases loaded and 0 outs =/.

Hideo Nomo said...

The wheols are valding off.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Thank you, Warshington.

MR.F said...

Double play. No runs scored!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Minimal damage. I'll take that.

Orel said...

I would call that minimal damage. 2-1 Dodgers.

Orel said...

DAMMINIMALDAMAGEIT

Hideo Nomo said...

Anyone know what folks are talking about on Twitter re: Vin? I didn't have my sound up.

MR.F said...

1 run allowed, could have been worse.

Cliff Beefpile said...

So, Woody Allen has decided to mix things up by making the same exact movie, but setting it in Rome this time.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Vin was saying the D-Backs had scored on that double play, was giving them an additional run for a few minutes before correcting himself.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gotcha, thanks!

Dusty Baker said...

My god te Gnats just lost in dramatically shitty fashion. Shitty in a good way, for us.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I do appreciate the implosion.

Dusty Baker said...

@Cliff

Agree re the Woody Allen film premise. However i have to say I really liked this one.

Hideo Nomo said...

We aren't getting any more runs. Need to go into shutdown mode.

Hideo Nomo said...

Heh. YEP, NO MORE RUNS.

MR.F said...

SVSHR!!!!!!!!!!

Orel said...

SVSHR!

Orel said...

Solo, of course.

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

STOP KILLING THE RALLIES

MR.F said...

Gwynn walk means Eo doesn't start next inning. Good job TGJ.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Runs!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Go Blue!

karina said...

epale everyone!

Neeebs * said...

Epale, seƱorita.

Neeebs * said...

I hate to say that the Emperor is wearing no clothes, but Vinny is losing it.

karina said...

*Parra will do no harm, Parra will do no harm*

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'll take a diminished Vinny over, say, everyone else.

MR.F said...

Wotcher, Karina!

MR.F said...

Another GIDP!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, we're winning. Outstanding.

Hideo Nomo said...

Angels are back to tanking. I am...OK with that.

Orel said...

HERRERA GO BOOM

Franklin Stubbs said...

That is acceptable.

MR.F said...

Herrera!

Orel said...

Hold that Beli!

Orel said...

Nicely done. 4-1 heading into the 9th.

Paul said...

I have listened to a lot of Giants announcers in the past and if Vin is losing it then they never had it.

Vin just doesn't have the range to quickly recover if he makes a mistake these days.

But Spanky does have no clothes.

Paul said...

I am not sure what to do with all these leads and homeruns. Feels like the 27 Yankees.

karina said...

where's Spank?

karina said...

Thank you very much, DBT

Paul said...

Spank is probably running around naked holding a sparkler.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"where's Spank?"

Scientists have been baffled by this question for years, but they recently discovered the answer this week.

Hideo Nomo said...

Time for MEllis to go yard.

Hideo Nomo said...

@Marla: The Spank Particle was found on the lip of a Steel Reserve can.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I believe the technical term is "Nekked Boson".

Paul said...

This is looking good.

Paul said...

We make party!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

The term for that, which was once thought lost to history, is a "winning streak"

Hideo Nomo said...

1.5 game lead party!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woooooooooooooooooo!

MR.F said...

PARTAY!

karina said...

we make party!

How you like me nooooow * 100.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I am satisfied with that result. Welcome back to the winner's circle, Captain Eo.

Paul said...

Why do they wear those matching polo shirts? They look like they should be working at Best Buy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sucks to be Phoenix this week.

Paul said...

I'd be okay if I was a Suns fan. Except that I'd be a Suns fan. That is not okay.

Steve Sax said...

1.5 games motherfuckers

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

1.5 gamed motherfuckers at what? Sax, you have to be more specific.

NicJ said...

We make Party (in the USA)

knapS said...

*drools*

Alex said...

I hear Van-Herrera is getting back together again...

maybe the FM's can co-headline.

MAKE PARTY!!!

Neeebs * said...

Flaming Menudos dont co-headline with anyone. Our contract rider doesn't allow it.

Alex said...

I see what you did there, Neeebs!

(double checks Flaming Menudos rider)

Neeebs * said...

You can disregard the part about the Albino Quartet. Paul tried to slip that one in when I wasnt looking.
