Scoreboard Watching: Barves @ Gnats, 1p


Our game doesn't get off until 6p, but there is of course another important game in the NL West race being played between a recently-reeling Atlanta Braves (71-55) team and an unfortunately-surging SF Gnats (71-55) team. The equation we're looking for:  (Dodgers win + Giants loss) x infinity.

Timmeh isn't pitching today (Madison Bumgarner is), but I'm still going to give him a hard time:


Feel the hate, brothers and sisters, and Go Braves!

Why is the German Wine Institute so interested in Timmeh?

Buster Olney ‏@Buster_ESPN

Nice catch by Francisco Peguero, as he retreats on a deep fly by David Ross, and this saves a couple of runs to end the first here in SF.

Orel said...

The Giants are winning with guys named Francisco Peguero.

@ Orel

That was the credit for the image used, not for the GIF.

Dusty Baker said...

3-0 Bravos!

Dusty Baker said...

"The next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wank."

Oh wait, I read that wrong.

Dusty Baker said...

Cheeky hit by Reed Johnson.

ps-Johnson!

Steve Sax said...

I don't really get The relevance of the picture it I love the SWGT. Thanks Dusty.

Unless those are grapes of wrath? hateHateHATE

Franklin Stubbs said...

I gave him a wank on the upcoming game thread, so done and done,

Steve Sax said...

3-0 ATL through four

Franklin Stubbs said...

@sax

Extend your pinky, have a sip, and search for the relevance of the image (or check the image title to determine the variety)

Dusty Baker said...

Per MLB Network Radio:

"We will carry the @Dodgers press conference live at 5:30pm ET/2:30pm PT. Listen in on XM 89, Sirius 209 or online: siriusxm.com/mlbnetworkradio"

Dusty Baker said...

Steve Sax said...

Minor falling apart here in B5; Pence HBP followed by a Arias 2B and a Belt FC. 3-1 ATl, one out.

Dusty Baker said...

Minor out of the 5th with only one run allowed. 3-1 Bravos.

Steve Sax said...

Answer sent!

Steve Sax said...

Only Minor damage, apparently. 3-1 through five

Dusty Baker said...

Bill Shaikin ‏@BillShaikin

Colletti expects Crawford to return in April or May.

Steve Sax said...

Minor with a one-out double in the seventh! Still 3-1 ATL.

Steve Sax said...

Sax is already drunk on red wine

Steve Sax said...

(sorry, Deutsches Weininstitut)

Steve Sax said...

^ entschildigung

Steve Sax said...

Minor scores on a Bourn RBI single! Ashley Madison is done. 4-1 ATL, T7

Franklin Stubbs said...

4-1 Braves

Steve Sax said...

Colletti expects Crawfish étouffée

Steve Sax said...

Gotcha, sir stubbs

Steve Sax said...

Kontos blows the comebacker play, Prado reaches, Bourn to second. Kontos is getting yanked after one batter.

Dusty Baker said...

Minor is out. Gnats threatening a two-out rally.

Dusty Baker said...

Chad Durbin in. Vagiants on 2B and 3B.

Dusty Baker said...

Double down the right side for White, two runs in. 4-3.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck Durbin, you suck

Dusty Baker said...

Out of the inning. Jints down 4-3 as we go to the 8th.

Steve Sax said...

Listening to Durbin choke here to Theriot makes me feel better about our bullpen

Steve Sax said...

On to the eighth! 4-3 ATL

I'm gonna scooby doo like crazy

Orel said...

Don't blame me, I voted for Kontos.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice reference, Orel.

Steve Sax said...

Ross with a leadoff double in the eighth!

Steve Sax said...

Reed Johnson and hs rodent of a goatee K for out #1

Dusty Baker said...

Braves are rancho with one out.

Steve Sax said...

Base hit, but Ross held at third. Braves rancho ardiendoing.

Steve Sax said...

Pastornicky PH

Dusty Baker said...

Paster grounds up the middle for force out at home. Is he Loney in disguise?

Dusty Baker said...

45

Steve Sax said...

Pastornicky: icky. Ross nailed at home for out 2

Steve Sax said...

@DB: Pastornicky can't be Loney as he didn't GIDP

Dusty Baker said...

Well, he brought a good rancho opportuity to its knees with a lame dribbler into the infield. So the Loney comparison fits.

Dusty Baker said...

5-3 on a bases loaded walk.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Uggla's conical neck scores on the bases loaded walk.

Franklin Stubbs said...

DAMMIT

Dusty Baker said...

Another bases-loaded walk. 6-3 better guys.

MR.F said...

6-3!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Walks for everybody!

Steve Sax said...

Two straight bases-loaded Affeldt walks make it 6-3 Braves!

Steve Sax said...

Braves radio broadcasters are talking about the AT&T scoreboard in between innings. Apparently they showed highlights of the little league world series where Petaluma (in the bay area) came back to tie it against Goodwinsvile TN in the sixth, at 15-all. SF Chardonnay-loving crowd goes nuts. Then the graphic switches to show Goodwinsville up 24-15 in the seventh.

Crowd is stunned.

Dusty Baker said...

Johnson goes up to get the fly ball. Two out in the bottom of the 8th.

Dusty Baker said...

And we go to the 9th with Bravos up by 3.

Steve Sax said...

Two out

Steve Sax said...

I am clearly delayed

And, my feed is late

Dusty Baker said...

There's some really shitty pitching going on the in LLWS.

Steve Sax said...

Freeman lead off single, then steals second

Dusty Baker said...

Freeman scores on a base hit by old friend Reed Johnson. 7-3 Barves.

Steve Sax said...

Johnson knocks in Freeman with a broken-bat double

7-3 Atlanta

Steve Sax said...

Fuck I am so late here! I may as well be in fucking Old World

MR.F said...

7-3!

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Who are you, Dylan Hernandez? I think he just tweeted about the Piazza blockbuster trade.

Dusty Baker said...

Oyster Pubes having a tough time at the plate. I like it. Pence flies out. Two down.

Steve Sax said...

Posey Ks, Pence flies out

SF fans still cheering like Charley Steiner's who can't tell a fly ball from a HR

Dusty Baker said...

Braves take the game 7-3. On to the GT now.

Steve Sax said...

Scooby Dolby doo! Lead down to 2.5

MR.F said...

2.5!

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Is that like a Scooby Doo episode in 5.1 surround sound?
