Game 144 Thread: Sept. 13 vs. Cards, 7p

Josh Beckett (6-13, 5.05) vs. Lance Lynn (14-7, 4.04).

The Dodgers are slumping! The Cardinals are slumping! Yet, due to Rule 1.03 of the Official Rules of Major League baseball:

The winner of the game shall be that team which shall have scored, in accordance with these rules, the greater number of runs at the conclusion of a regulation game.

Yes, someone has to win! And don't forget about the resurgent Brewers and Phillies, who with the Dodgers and Cards are within three games of that sad, sad final wild card spot. Let's call it the mini card.

Old bald guys in salmon-colored polos, what's not to love?

Orel said...

Paco's got that weird hitch in his delivery.

Fred's Brim said...

@Gnomes on TV it reminds me of Scott Radinsky's delivery

Paul said...

Paco's funky delivery. Sounds like a good band name.

Orel said...

Paco to Beli.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Paco done. In comes El Guapo

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh hey, I can see who you guys are talking about now.

Orel said...

Correction: the dancing baby Just for Men commercial is the worst commercial ever.

Orel said...

Make your move, Gnomes!

Fred's Brim said...

Belli in for the 2R HR, then strike out the next two on 6 pitches

Paul said...

That is a baby?

Orel said...

One pitch, one out.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Ha! El Guapo.

Orel said...

The boys are back.

Orel said...

Mark Saxon ‏@markasaxon

This game is like a pillow fight underwater

Orel said...

Seeing-eye single gives the Cards the 2-1 lead. Game over.

Hollandsworth said...

i just facepalmed so hard, my ring cracked against the back of my skull.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fucking Robinson. Stupid MSB.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

You gotta be fucking kidding me!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

unbelievable

Paul said...

Sigh. Just like Batman we are not allowed to die yet.

Fred's Brim said...

actually very believable

Orel said...

You were just about right, FB.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dodger Baseball: At least you can get some studying done.

Fred's Brim said...

stupid walks
why cant we have some?

Fred's Brim said...

it's quiet, you get a nice blanket and some snacks - it's like a picnic in the park

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Dodger Baseball: drink more beer

Hideo Nomo said...

7th inning stretch: They won't win. It's a shame.

Fred's Brim said...

fuckass Cardinals and their goody-two-shoes alcoholic beechwood-aged hillbilly fans can all die in a fiery tractor accident

Hideo Nomo said...

Blerg.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I guess that's it, I'm not nearly drunk enough. Perhaps this team will look better if I have the beer goggles on.

Orel said...

Cy Mujica

Fred's Brim said...

uhoh she's gone
if she comes back with a tray of seventh-inning beers, Gnomes has to go down there and propose to her

Orel said...

Cardinal defense giving us a chance!

Paul said...

We got a break! Time to waste it.

Orel said...

Dee!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Matt Goorear warming up? That's it, I'm out... G' nite

Orel said...

Well no one told me about her

Fred's Brim said...

Who is this Dee kid? he looks too skinny to be a baseball player

Fred's Brim said...

too

Cliff Beefpile said...

Oh good, Dee "Caught Stealing" Gordon is loose on the base paths!

Paul said...

Bye Dee.

Orel said...

Opportunity: wasted.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Jesus, I'm psychic now.

Hollandsworth said...

boy, you sure called it, Cliff. fuck.

Orel said...

Shoulda slid headfirst, Dee!

Hideo Nomo said...

Wow Dee got a nice ovation.

Hollandsworth said...

what a hemorrhage-inducing inning.

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

Fred's Brim said...

we need a fucking catcher! A good catcher would have swung at that pitch to protect the runner! get rid of AJ and bring back Navarro!

Hollandsworth said...

"FSN Prime Ticket: Where we try and distract you with old, great Dodger moments to blind you from the disaster right in front of you."

Fred's Brim said...

Vin trying realllly hard to sell the rest of the games in this series

Orel said...

Another leadoff double.

Fred's Brim said...

Is Guh-Rear already in?

Fred's Brim said...

These assholes owe me wins or sleep.
FUCK!

Orel said...

Belisario has very smooth neck skin.

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel I read in the latest Cosmo that he uses a new lotion from Kiehl's

Orel said...

No kidding? I thought he was a Body Shop guy.

Orel said...

iPhone 5 already sold out.

Orel said...

Beli gets out of it. Hard to believe we're only down one.

Fred's Brim said...

the Body Shop products have stuff in it that's on the MLB banned substances list, aloe I think

Orel said...

That would explain Melky's suspiciously supple skin.

Orel said...

Bobby vs. Boggs

Hollandsworth said...

gonna go out on a limb and say Boggs won.

Orel said...

Three outs left.

Fred's Brim said...

one run has never seemed like so many

Fred's Brim said...

except for last night

Fred's Brim said...

and the night before

Fred's Brim said...

And August, and those three weeks in June

Fred's Brim said...

how does a 2-1 game go more than three hours?

Orel said...

Beckett is a notoriously slow operator.

Orel said...

No need to ask.

Orel said...

Looks like our lady is gone for good.

Fred's Brim said...

If we get two guys on in the ninth, we can get Punto an at-bat!

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel - I assume she and Gnomes have retired to The Shortstop by now

Orel said...

Let's see if Gnomes can outscore the Dodgers.

Hollandsworth said...

that am/pm commercial has Beethoven spinning in his grave.

well... at least it would... y'know, if he could hear it.

Orel said...

League induces GIDP!

Orel said...

Kemp-Gonzalez-Ramirez! Heart of the order! Oh yeah! Here we go!

Fred's Brim said...

Let's get a couple and go home!

Orel said...

Isn't that what Gnomes said to that girl?

Orel said...

Motte's apple juice in for the save.

Orel said...

300+ comments in tonight's GT! Thanks, Josh Beckett!

Orel said...

I mean, there will be.

Orel said...

Two outs left.

Orel said...

Time for a meaningless single.

Steve Sax said...

My PGT is already queued up.

Fred's Brim said...

that's all Matty seems to do anymore, ground out to the left side

Orel said...

Will Hanley take another called strike three?

Steve Sax said...

@Hollandsworth 10.02p: nice comment.

Roll over, Beethoven!

Orel said...

Meaningless pop-up.

Orel said...

Despite recent trends, this is the guy we want at the plate.

Steve Sax said...

yep, that's why we wanted you on our team, AGon! For fouling out, two inches from home plate!

Orel said...

Meaningless double!

Orel said...

Two hard-hit balls off Hanley's bat tonight. Both kind of died at the warning track.

Hollandsworth said...

i remain pessimistic on all fronts despite the double.

Orel said...

Betcha Victorino bunts here.

Orel said...

2-1 count

Fred's Brim said...

Has Matty checked out? Does he hang out on the rail anymore?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Come on, assholes! Get up off the floor for once!

Ñeeebs said...

K here

Steve Sax said...

Shane.

Hollandsworth said...

backwards K, perhaps?

Orel said...

Thanks, Neeebstradamus.

Cliff Beefpile said...

FUCK!!!

Orel said...

Holliday catches it this time.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That's what I get for getting suckered into thinking this team had any heart.

Orel said...

Mattingly pays for putting Victorino in the six spot.

Hollandsworth said...

oh no. we lost. didn't see it coming.

*covertly puts on White Sox cap*

Ñeeebs said...

Yearning for the good old MCCourt days. At least we made the playoffs

Steve Sax said...

PGT up. Thanks Shane, for doing exactly as we expected you to do: SUCK.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Good lord, the thing I'm most looking forward to this weekend is UCLA football. How quickly my sports fandom has gone to pot.

Fred's Brim said...

What was Hillman talking to Hanley about? That looked like a serious conversation

Steve Sax said...

Hillman was telling Hanley to hit it harder if Shane is batting next with two out
