Game 138 Thread: Sept 5 vs. Padres, 7p

Aaron Harang (9-8, 3.76) vs. Clayton Richard (12-12, 3.74).

The Dodgers are all tied up in this three-game series with the Padres, going into tonight's rubber match; and, we face a pitcher with an equal W-L record, while throwing up (literally?) an (almost) equal W-L record pitcher of our own. Yep, it's all Even Stevens around these parts.

Except, just like Shia LaBeouf's career, a closer look shows that we're careening into our death spiral pretty quickly here. First, a walk off win (our second in a row) made us a serial killer. This gave way to a a series of maddeningly bad plays (in last night's game) which prolonged the agony. Wedged in between those bad plays was some pretty piss-poor veteran performances, I might add.

So will tonight be a final flop, still 4.5 GB the Giants with only 25 to go (Cardinals lost today, putting us 1.0 GB the WC going into tonight's game)? Well, I suppose it could be worse. But let's finish this homestand with a win, okay guys?

(And enjoy your Hello Kitty tote bag, peeps!)

No need for us to worry about winning, when the Giants keep losing.

Right?

When does this end?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Didn't see that one coming.

Why Kennedy?

Can't expect Vic to get a fourth hit right?

I can't take this shit anymore. I'm watching 'Airplane' instead. Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit taking amphetamines.

SoSG Fest III is totally going to be funereal. Sorry, Nomo.
