Game 86 Thread: July 7 @ Snakes, 6p 7p

Chad Billingsley (4-8, 4.20) vs. Trevor Cahill (6-7, 3.63).

Tonight is part 1 in the Diamondbacks' Attack of the Trevors, with Cahill having hitched his waggons to the Snakes after three years of service with the A's (40-35, 1 All-Star appearance). Cahill has one career appearance against the Dodgers, going six innings without a decision.

As for Chad Billingsley? We need a win tonight, Bills, to ensure we'll remain in first place (irrespective of the Giants' fate). Can you Stave (off) Trevor? All the world is waiting for you, and the powers you possess.

Hideo Nomo said...

Alright, Dodgers, a win tonight clinches first place at the break.

Not that that means shit.

MR.F said...

I'm so annoyed at Ubaldo Jimenez. How did he turn his season around?

Steve Sax said...

Andrew McCutcheon, MVP

Steve Sax said...

I'm totally confused about the start time. When I saw the Dodgers' site last might, it said 7p MT.

Steve Sax said...

Shit, you're right Gnomes. post title updated.

Post text updated too just to drive home the pun.

Steve Sax said...

Orel and I will be watching e game together tonight. Potentially.

Steve Sax said...

JMac: 9-3 with a 2.37 ERA. And I never thought he looked comfortable as a Dodger.

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

Accuscore gives AZ a 61% chance of winning tonight.

Steve Sax said...

Andruw Zjones, 2 HR for the YankMes today

Hideo Nomo said...

Bryce Harper named to All-Star team, in place of Giancarlo Stanton. Aaron Hill is the only member of the NL Final Vote not to make the team.

Luann has a sad.

Dusty Baker said...

Error on Jeter! hahahahahaha!

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr F

Have some fiber!

Dusty Baker said...

Cruz hits his 4th double in 6 games.

I like this lad thus far.

ps- Fuck you, Urine

Hideo Nomo said...

Call up a minor leaguer, ride his hot start, call up another when the first one cools off, and ride HIS hot start.

Rinse, repeat.

MR.F said...

@Dusty,
I'm glad someone made that joke.

Hideo Nomo said...

I forget, did Urine go to the DL, or is he still day-to-day?

Hideo Nomo said...

Never mind. I guess he's playing, for lack of a better word.

Dusty Baker said...

Urine is now under the Loney Line.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr F

How could I not?

#PermanentlyEleven

Hideo Nomo said...

Chad's batting .250? Can he play third between starts?

knapS said...

The world needs more Yanks/Sox.

knapS said...

Two outs already. goddamn!

knapS said...

Make that inning over already. goddamn.

knapS said...

Did I fart?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Is that a rhetorical question?

MR.F said...

Nice to see AJ getting hits.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Nice to see signs of life in the lineup for when we're back at fighting strength.

Hideo Nomo said...

@Spank

Dusty does plenty of sock yanking.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Chadleigh wiggles off the hook nicely.

Hideo Nomo said...

Chad's faux-badass goatee seems to improve his pitching.

Hideo Nomo said...

I spoke too soon. Settle down, MegaButt!

Dusty Baker said...

We should have thrown at Parra in the digout before the game started.

Hideo Nomo said...

I so don't want to hate on Chad, but...

Hideo Nomo said...

Hut 'em un the digout!

Hideo Nomo said...

They're all hitting to the same spot.

MR.F said...

AJ!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck!

Hideo Nomo said...

Wow. This thread died.

Gotta win when the Gnats lose. It's not rocket surgery.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let's trade for Mike Trout.

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

James Loney for David Wright!

Paul said...

Sign more Cubans!

Dusty Baker said...

Sad thing is I queued that throwing at Parra comment before he actually hit the ball that broke the game open. Just knew it.
