Game 115 Thread: August 12 @ Fish, 10a

"Wader, there's a dog in my soup!"

Chris Capuano (10-8, 3.29) vs. Wade LeBlanc (1-1, 1.50).

Hello, second place. Did you miss us? Because we weren't gone long.

I don't like pitchers named Wade. Last time we saw one, he knocked us into second place. Will today's Wade bog us down further?

And speaking of LeBlancs, have you seen "Episodes" on Showtime? Matt LeBlanc is doing a great job on that show.

Dusty Baker said...

I like seeing Cruz back in the lineup. And I like not seeing Loney in it.

Dusty Baker said...

Wake your lazy asses up, people. There's baseball to be watched!

Dusty Baker said...

LA Times website current headline:

"Chihuahua fire in northeast San Diego County near containment"

How hard is it to put out a chihuahua fire?

Hideo Nomo said...

Ahora quiero Taco Bell.

Dusty Baker said...

Me, too, Nomo. You making a run?

Dusty Baker said...

Double for HanRam. MEllis at third. 2 outs but we have somethin cookin.

Dusty Baker said...

Or not. Ethier with a room service fly ball to CF. At least we got to Matt LeBlanc.

Dusty Baker said...

Gorkys: Park your ass back on the bench. Struck out on three pitches.

Dusty Baker said...

Dylan Hernandez just tweeted some breaking news:

"Joe Blanton unravels and Jerry Hairston Jr. is injured in #Dodgers' loss to the #Marlins on Saturday night: lat.ms/QqniqG"

Dusty Baker said...

Ball just isn't carrying out of the Yard this weekend.

Dusty Baker said...

MMT was in the Yard last night according to Steve Lyons.

Dusty Baker said...

5-4-3 DP - side retired.

Dusty Baker said...

RANCHO Alert!

Dusty Baker said...

Bases juiced for Matty.

Dusty Baker said...

Aaaaaaand Matty strikes out.

Dusty Baker said...

Now HanRam with a chance to do something here. He's been killing Marlins all weekend.

Dusty Baker said...

Full count for Hanley. Whatcha gonna do?

Dusty Baker said...

TheWhite already on 50 pitches.

Dusty Baker said...

Sac fly to LF for Hanley. Cap tags up to score. 1-0 Blue men.

Dusty Baker said...

Dre with a chance to make this right.

Dusty Baker said...

Noffense strikes again. Lots of chances and we couldn't taken advantage.

*Cracks open first beer*

Steve Sax said...

It would be nice if Kemp could heat up again.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dusty: Dylan always links to the Times stories on the day they run.

Dusty Baker said...

At Nomo:

Yeah, I picked up on that. But as I've noted before it's extremely lame to tweet a link to a story that describes what happened in the game the day before. Bad use of social/new media!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

C'mon, Cap, we're due for something special.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Should've started Loney.

Dusty Baker said...

MMT in tha heezy!

Dusty Baker said...

Capuano is having a decent day on the mound when one considers the box score.

Dusty Baker said...

Dammit, there went the no-hitter.

Hideo Nomo said...

Damn.

Dusty Baker said...

Do I get a dammit for the dammit comment? Whoa....meta

Steve Sax said...

Quite a game that Capuano is pitching here.

Hideo Nomo said...

Heath Bell is way fatter now. But then, Cuban food is REALLY good.

Steve Sax said...

Even as a non-no-hitter

Steve Sax said...

Second and third with one out. Let's go, Blue!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The orange adds 10-20 pounds.

Steve Sax said...

Top 8, 1-0 dodgers.

Here comes Hanley.

Hideo Nomo said...

I don't think that qualifies for a DAMMIT. It's like when we all say FUCK when the bullpen coughs up the lead.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, Rockies at Giants is the free game of the day on MLB.com!

Steve Sax said...

My flight is delayed. Boooooooo

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Still think your cows are better, Carlos?

Steve Sax said...

Boom Hanley!

3-0 LA

Steve Sax said...

Charley just had a heart attack with that Ethier foul ball

Steve Sax said...

Apparently Kemp had to hurdle Reyes as he left second toward home?

Jose Reyes is weak sauce.

Steve Sax said...

Ethier singles in Hanley!

Hanley goes through the stop sign yet again!

Steve Sax said...

Heath Bell is awesome

Steve Sax said...

(for us that is)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It took us this long to figure out Heath Bell?

Steve Sax said...

Radio segues out to 25-to-6-to-4

And here comes the scary as shit ankylosing spondylitis commercial

Steve Sax said...

"Insist on hand-grown California avocados."

As opposed to the machine-grown avocados of Nevada? I don't get it.

Steve Sax said...

Luis Cruz doubles where Juan Rivera could only K

5-0 Dodgers

Keep them coming, Dodgers

Steve Sax said...

Or to

Still, four runs in the eighth inning ain't bad.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Chris Phi Beta Kapauano is dealing today!!!

Spank Horst said...

Fucking excellent.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

2-hitter now, that's it, pull him

Steve Sax said...

Pretty sweet highlight for Ramirez, knocking in two runs. You can even see the Kemp hurdle.

Hideo Nomo said...

Twitter afire with jinx talk. The jinx only applies to speaking directly to the pitcher. Everyone else can say what they want. (Unless you're being a cock about it, like Dylan was.)

Think of it this way: During every successful no-hitter in history, someone somewhere said out loud that a no-no was going on.

Hideo Nomo said...

^ Except maybe the first ever no-hitter. No one knew what it was yet.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Wow he's making look easy today.

Steve Sax said...

Alex White vs Barry Zito today

Steve Sax said...

Not happy about this delayed flight

Steve Sax said...

Hanley Ks to end the top of the ninth.

Steve Sax said...

That K was for you happy Miami fans.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Gorkys should change his name to Giancarlo.

Steve Sax said...

Capuano out for the ninth. 8.0 IP, 10 Ks. Well done, Cap!

Steve Sax said...

One out

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

So the Dodgers wind up 3-3 over the last six anyways.

Hideo Nomo said...

MAKE SUNDAE PARTY!

Steve Sax said...

PGT UP!
