Game 133 Thread: August 31 vs. D-bags, 7p

Aaron Harang (9-8, 3.70) vs. Trevor Cahill (9-11, 3.99) (Neither pitcher pictured)

Hey, wow, our starting pitcher is slightly better than the opposing team's starting pitcher based on mostly-outdated pitching metrics! 

As we look to shake off the hangover left after the Dodgers' noffense was unable to produce a single run on the night Vin Scully was honored with both a bobblehead and a celestial sign in the form of a rainbow from the baseball gods, we find ourselves 4.5 games behind the first-place Voldemorts. (editor's note: Deatheaters lost to Cubs earlier today so the lead at game time is down to 4.) In fact, many of us who were in attendance last night feel like we had our very souls sucked out of us, Dementor style, by the embarrassing lack of offensive firepower despite the potential that this lineup holds.

Someone -- anyone -- cast a spell or make our team ingest a potion that helps us break this slump and contend going down the pennant stretch. Let's avoid a Harangover tomorrow, shall we? We're really due, at least once a blue moon.

Maybe it wasn't Loney. Maybe first base is cursed.

Tying run is aboard.

C'mon, Andre. Unbreak my heart.

Watch for the off-speed pitch, Dre.

Orel said...

Fuck.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shit.

Dusty Baker said...

Shit. Fire. We need to fire Mickey Hatcher.

Orel said...

Hmmm, should Donnie have sent Hanley earlier?

Paul said...

Wow. Till the bitter end.

Dusty Baker said...

Why wasn't HanRam sitting on 2nd before that Cruz hit (defensive indifference, anybody)/

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

DAMMIT!

Orel said...

Is that Uribe on deck?

You can't psyche out A.J. Ellis. Just pitch.
