Game 122 Thread: August 19 @ Braves, 10:30a

Fear the Beard!

Chad Billingsley (9-9, 3.62) vs. Mike Minor (6-9, 4.93).

Chad Billingsley tries for a career-high six straight wins today as the Dodgers go for their fourth series win in their past five chances. The Braves may be tied for the NL Wild Card lead, but if the Dodgers can build off yesterday's unlikely four-HR performance, maybe we can go into tomorrow's series against the Giants with more than a glimmer of confidence.

Anyone know the Melky website? I am guessing it is noPEDstoseehere.com

Dusty Baker said...

All the stories I saw on the Melky website issue didn't have a link.

Scott Elbert activated; Herrera sent back down. Urine feasts on his own feces.

Breakfast baseball. Scrambled eggs and hotcakes with a side of long ball. Let's go blue!

Hideo Nomo said...

It's didmelkycabreratakePEDs.com and when you go there it just says "No."

epale everyone!

Orel said...

Hanley with the barehanded catch & throw of the Baltimore Chop to nail Freddie Freeloader!

Orel said...

Epale, Karina! How are you following the game today?

Orel said...

Cruz leadoff single!

Orel said...

Ajellis single! To compensate for yesterday, the Dodgers will hit nothing but singles today.

Orel said...

McCann tries to get the out at third on Chad's bunt.

McCann chose poorly.

RANCHO VICTORIDENDO

Hideo Nomo said...

DAMMIT

(Also put my D in the wrong spot.)

Orel said...

Just don't hit into a DP, Mellis.

Orel said...

Ellis is really hacking away. Good AB so far.

Orel said...

FUCK

Dusty Baker said...

GOD DAMMIT

Orel said...

Mellis must have been sitting next to Loney in the dugout.

Orel said...

Why did Ross get more starts than McCann in this series?

Orel said...

Bills rollin'!

Orel said...

Kersh vs. Bumg
Blant vs. Lince
Cap vs. Cain

Hideo Nomo said...

Matt 0-for-ATL.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

McCann has been battling an injury (neck I think).

Spank Horst said...

These TBS announcers are going to put me back to sleep.

Orel said...

Thanks, Dusty. Figures an ex-Dodger would help beat us.

Eugenio's Streak said...

Should have just said his "Melkmen" delivery service web site accidentally switched the packages...

Orel said...

Chadley escapes!

Spank Horst said...

COCHITO!

Orel said...

WOW LUIS CRUZ

AGAIN!

Orel said...

Ajellis single! What is up with the bottom of the order?

Orel said...

Chad challenging Clayton for SP hitting superiority!

Spank Horst said...

Victorino ,You suck!

Dusty Baker said...

What are these strange, so-called "home runs" I keep hearing about lately?

Orel said...

Victorino has stranded five so far.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Fucking Cruz is bad ass. Just saying

Orel said...

Chad one pitch away from escaping from another jam.

Orel said...

Damn, Bills just smoked Heyward!

Orel said...

I like this new badass Bills.

Orel said...

ARI 5, HOU 1, bot 4

Orel said...

Chad has a little tummy going.

Orel said...

Uribe walks!

Orel said...

Hillman puts on the hit & run! Victorino singles! 1st & 3rd, no out!

Orel said...

Need some Geico in a major way here.

Orel said...

Wow! Heyward loses it in the sun! 2-0 Dodgers!

Orel said...

Kemp swings at the first pitch, pops out.

Spank Horst said...

Rancho Ramiredendo

Spank Horst said...

^i

Spank Horst said...

Oh shit where's my brain? It's fucking Loney who's batting with the bases juiced.





(cries)

Orel said...

Bases loaded, full count to James Loney!

Orel said...

Eric Collins nearly had an aneurysm on that foul ball.

Orel said...

Loney tags it — right at the first baseman.

Orel said...

Let's not make things interesting, Beli.

Orel said...

One out.

Orel said...

Two out. Both Ks.

Orel said...

1-2-3!

Spank Horst said...

3 up 3 down in the 8th for ol' plug nose.

Spank Horst said...

Heyward lost it in the sun again. Ajellis to second on a pop fly.

Orel said...

Oh man Heyward with another gift.

Spank Horst said...

Barves showing off their non-gold gloves.

Orel said...

Bizarre. AK's popup finds a place in the Bermuda triangle. Ellis doesn't advance.

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDOhaven't we been here before?

Spank Horst said...

Dang. Bases loaded again. I want more runs Dammit!

Dusty Baker said...

MEllis!!!!! Three runs in!

Spank Horst said...

Fuck yeah! Mellis!!

Orel said...

Mellifluous! Bases-clearing double! 5-0 Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

We have the runs.

Spank Horst said...

Goddamn. John Smoltz sounds like somebody died. Lighten up buddy. You don't play for the Braves no mo.

Steve Sax said...

Hey baby! Just got back and picked up the game: up 5-0!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp 0-for his last 14. He needs to put the ball in play and not focus as much on trying to hit it out every swing.

Spank Horst said...

How much you want to bet that Barve coach raping his ear with his finger sniffs the mofo after he's done.

Orel said...

Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick

Hot-hitting Luis Cruz appeared to suffer a leg injury grounding out in the ninth inning. He homered earlier.

Steve Sax said...

Goddamit, Cruz had better be okay.

Spank Horst said...

There it is.

Fred's Brim said...

GOTDAMN RIGHT!

Great road trip!

Orel said...

HYPGTUP!
