Game 131 Thread: August 29 @ Rockies, 12n

Joe Blanton (8-12, 5.02) vs. Drew Pomeranz (1-7, 4.78).

Stan Kasten: I'd like to return this monkey paw.

Wizened Old Man: Why?

SK: It's done the opposite of everything I've wished!

WOM: Well...didn't you heed my warning about the curse?

SK: Hold on, I'm getting a call. [answers phone, finishes call] Okay, you were saying?

WOM: I'll take the monkey paw back, but you must pay one final terrible price. Your worst pitcher, at Coors Field—

SK: Hold on, I'm getting another call. [answers phone]

WOM: Heh heh heh.

Cruz in front of Ethier? Innnteresting.

Ñeeebs said...

Wizened old man: OK, now I'll let the Dodgers win three in a row just to fuck with him, and to give him a little hope. He'll be back.

Hideo Nomo said...

HE HAS A BOARD...WITH A NAIL IN IT!

Steve Sax said...

That could be a coffin, Gnomes

Hideo Nomo said...

Ah, remember when Treehouse of Horror was quality television?

QuadSevens said...

Is today the day that we make a 1-7 pitcher look like a Cy Young winner?

Steve Sax said...

Magic 8 Ball: Signs point to NO

Spank Horst said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Spank Horst said...

Sorry ass first inning.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

QuadSevens said...

Dodgers score 4 in the 3rd. We're winning!

QuadSevens said...

Hanley up with a runner on.

QuadSevens said...

Hanley goes deep! 6-0 boys in blue!

Spank Horst said...

4-0 Dodgers

Hanley!

6-0 Dodgers.

QuadSevens said...

Now that's the kind of inning I like to see.

Dusty Baker said...

I figured out the key here, guys:

I haven't watched any of this, and we are winning.

Therefore, I'm not watching any of this.

cc: Fred's Brim

Orel said...

That's my line, Dusty!

Steve Sax said...

We are winning! Holy shit

Steve Sax said...

AGon's flip throw highest to Blanton n the second was sweet.

Hideo Nomo said...

I am also not watching.

(continues to not watch)

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

We are still up 6-0 through five

Steve Sax said...

Ok, I'm going to watch for you guys...

Dusty Baker said...

(doesn't watch)

karina said...

epale everyone!

no power over here and internet took a while to work, when I can listen to the game, Cargo hits his first single in 6 at-bats.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Are you in New Orleans?

karina said...

@Dusty, nope, still in Venezuela, where without hurricanes we still explosions, fallen bridges and floods.

However, none of that has happened here and still we didn't have power :(

karina said...

*we still have

Spank Horst said...

Rancho

karina said...

GRAND SLAM!!!!!!!!! AJ ELLIS!!!!!!!!!!

Spank Horst said...

GRAND SLAM AJELLIS!!!!

Spank Horst said...

Blanton will give up 10 runs in the bottom of the eighth.

Steve Sax said...

Boom shakalaka AJ. Saw that one!

Steve Sax said...

Mehliss with the dodgers' 11th hit

Steve Sax said...

Vain Shictorino with a weak pop to short. Two out, mehliss on first

Steve Sax said...

So when did AGon shave the upper lip hair?

Steve Sax said...

Lyons is obsessed with AJ Ellis' GS

Steve Sax said...

AGon badly fooled for the K. Blanton coming back out.

karina said...

*looks both ways*

is it safe to root for Cargo?

karina said...

forget it...

Ñeeebs said...

I'm expecting a very minimalistic PGT today.

Steve Sax said...

Blanton leaves with one out and men at the corners in the eighth. Dodgers lead 10-1.

Steve Sax said...

Tolleson in, immediately gives up a hit

Steve Sax said...

10-2 LA

Steve Sax said...

Tolleson gives up ANOTHER hit. 10-3. Hanley very late on his dive attempt.

Show up, Tolleson

Steve Sax said...

Tolleson is not good.

Spank Horst said...

GET AN OUT GODDAMMIT!!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Tolleson walks Brown. Bases full of Rocks.

Steve Sax said...

Tolleson is all over the board to Fowler, 2-1 count

Steve Sax said...

Fowler singles. Tolleson, you suck!

Mattingly, pull his ass!

Steve Sax said...

10-4, bases still full. Tolleson finally yanked, thank god

Steve Sax said...

Tolleson saw four batters and didn't record one out. Criminy.

Dusty Baker said...

Scout says: TOLLESON YOU FUCKING SUCK WHALE DONG!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Chayote hits Colvin for run number five.

Fucking A, Dodgers, sack the fuck up. This is pathetic.

Paul said...

We got an out. I still feel sick.

Spank Horst said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Dusty Baker said...

I want to drown a sackful of kittens I'm so pissed off.

Steve Sax said...

10-6, belli pitching. Dodgers look determined to make sure Blanton does not record a win.

Paul said...

I am going to say if we lose this it will be all over.

Steve Sax said...

10-8. Victorino can't pick up the fucking ball.

Paul said...

My fuckin god!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Finally the third out. 7-run inning for the Rox.

Paul said...

we need to score just get a handle back on this thing.

Steve Sax said...

Belli on for the ninth. Gets a grounder to third for out one.

Steve Sax said...

Base hit to left. One out. HR can tie it now.

Our bullpen absolutely blows.

Eugenio's Streak said...

I literally left for 10 mins, WTF happened?

Steve Sax said...

Belli can't find the zone. It's like he's drunk out there.

Oops.

Steve Sax said...

Ellis thought that ball was a strike

Steve Sax said...

GIDP to end it. Thank god. Ellis still yammering at the ump.

Eugenio's Streak said...

Ho ho ho! What's wrong little girl? Why are you crying?

Oh you wanted to have your team build up a comfortable lead then not piss it away?

Well Christmas isn't till after the World Series, so ask for something else.....

karina said...

we make almost party!

MR.F said...

Oh my...

Dusty Baker said...

I can't even make party after this one.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up. With a song, too!
