Game 146 Thread: Sept. 15 vs. Cards, 6p

"Score more runs!"

Joe Blanton (9-13, 4.98) vs. Jaime Garcia (4-7, 4.41).

The Dodgers and Cards combined for 13 runs last night, and given the numbers of tonight's starters, don't expect a pitchers' duel. New daddy Joe Blanton will certainly be rested — parents of newborns get a lot of sleep, right? I'm not sure if Jaime Garcia is a father or not, but he's had problems pitching away from Busch Stadium. Diaper rash versus road woes, who ya got?

Pitching away from Busch.

It kinda caught my eye.

Road rash vs, diaper woes!

Kemp CF
Gonzalez 1B
Ramirez SS
Ethier RF
Cruz 3B
Ellis C
Blanton P

I guess 8 runs was enough. Back to what wasn't working.

Dusty Baker said...

Are yall ready for this?

Hideo Nomo said...

Almost forgetting the game was on, Vinny!

Hideo Nomo said...

Will E500K go to a Dodger?

Orel said...

E500K is so totally ours.

Hideo Nomo said...

10 pitch at-bat. 7 pitches outside the zone. Ethier swung at FOUR of them, then grounds out on a pitch down the middle.

At least they got a run and made Garcia work.

Orel said...

Jose Reyes steals E500K from us. Bastard!

Hideo Nomo said...

Whoa. 1-2-3 second for Joe and the Blantones.

Orel said...

Joe Blantonloc?

Orel said...

WILD THANG

Orel said...

Nice to see A-Gon getting his RBIs.

Orel said...

Correction: Joe Blantonlōc.

Orel said...

Swing and a miss.

Orel said...

Wow, he was safe?

Orel said...

Think we got lucky there.

Orel said...

Swing and a miss.

Orel said...

Now we're losing.

Orel said...

Wear him down, Luis!

Orel said...

Stanford beats USC. Where's DelinO?

Eric Karros said...

Hi Orel

Orel said...

DAMMIT

I mean, hey EK!

Eric Karros said...

wassup?

Orel said...

Have you seen Stubbs' take on the Trondheim bears, EK?

Eric Karros said...

I just finished watching the end of the USC Stanford game

Eric Karros said...

I did some back-surfing and yes saw a puzzle with them. Totally awesome.

Eric Karros said...

He's taken them (both the bears and the puzzles) to another level

Orel said...

So much for that #2 ranking, huh?

Orel said...

Empty GT tonight. We can talk behind everybody's back.

Eric Karros said...

That was a great game. I sorta like Stanford and I HATE USC so worked out well...as it has many years in a row now

Eric Karros said...

Did your fantasy FF team win last week?

Orel said...

Argh, Orioles losing to the A's.

Eric Karros said...

Oops redundant F. Like saying ATM Machine.

Orel said...

Got whomped by P. Ditty, 97-73.

Orel said...

If this game ends at 3-2, then...nothing.

Eric Karros said...

Wes Welker sucked.

I don't get the Dodger game but see it is not going well.

Orel said...

Four-pitch walk to Mothballs.

Hideo Nomo said...

Ugh, I thought it was Bottom 8 already.

Orel said...

Dodger recipe: decent pitching, no offense. It's a tradition.

Eric Karros said...

Yo Nomo!

Eric Karros said...

It's quiet today, reminds me of the circa-2007 days of SoSG...

Eric Karros said...

...which was roughly the last time I was on a GT, I know...

Orel said...

Oh hey, the Giants won. AGAIN

Hideo Nomo said...

EK! Good to see you! Did you bring any Dodger runs with you?

Orel said...

The Dodgers' losing ways haven't helped blog traffic.

Hideo Nomo said...

Two-run lead off home run here.

Hideo Nomo said...

No one wants to read about Cool-A-Coos too, I've learned.

Orel said...

Ghost of James Loney on first base?

Orel said...

Yes, backwards Ks will fire us up.

Orel said...

Your Cool-A-Coo piece got plenty of reads, Nomo. Just not a lot of comments.

Eric Karros said...

Alas I am in possession of no Dodger runs

Orel said...

Matty! Under/over on pitches before he strikes out swinging? 4?

Hideo Nomo said...

Matt can K on one pitch.

Orel said...

Kemp's poor judgment at the plate doesn't seem related to his injured left shoulder.

Eric Karros said...

I like Cool-a-Coos

Orel said...

They're like the Dodgers now!

InsideUSC ‏@InsideUSC

Lane Kiffin said "the guys are really down" in locker room

Eric Karros said...

Everybody's eating Cool a Coos outside Bill's office?

Don't you think that's information I'd like to know?

Hideo Nomo said...

"We've secretly replaced their 2012 Matt Kemp with 2010 Matt Kemp. Let's see if they notice."

Hideo Nomo said...

(EK's phone goes off)

Orel said...

Hey EK, what does this mean?

karina ‏@tinatinita

ver el letrero de Hollywood por primera vez...wow

Eric Karros said...

to see the hollywood sign for the first time wow

Orel said...

It's okay, guys. Fife is going tomorrow.

Orel said...

I guess Karina is in L.A.!

Orel said...

Kemp loves the DS walls so much more!

Eric Karros said...

Kemp 0-4 with 3K's. I think the switch was noticed.

Paul said...

Do not give up!

Eric Karros said...

You invited Eric? I thought Eric gave you the creeps?

(uh, wait a minute...I'm Eric)

Eric Karros said...

LA's Rancho is Ardiendo with Karina!

Orel said...

Kemp misses Molina's fly ball, crashes into the wall and ends up throwing out Molina trying to stretch it to third. Just like they drew it up.

Paul said...

Walk off time.

Orel said...

A-Gon, Hanley & Ethier up in the bottom of the ninth. We got...this?

Orel said...

SHIT

Hideo Nomo said...

SHIT AGAIN

Paul said...

Tie it up Dre.

Orel said...

Look at a knee-high fastball for a strike, Dre.

Orel said...

SINGLE!

Paul said...

Remember The Cruz!

Orel said...

Look at a knee-high fastball for a strike, Luis.

Paul said...

Don't try to steal Dee

Orel said...

Dee steals second!

Paul said...

I meant do it.

Orel said...

Don't try to steal third Dee

Orel said...

Rivera's on deck? Dee might as well try to steal third and home.

Orel said...

CRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZ

Paul said...

Cruuuuuz!!!

Fuck yeah!

Hideo Nomo said...

(BUYS A JERSEY)

Orel said...

"For the umpteenth time, Luis Cruz answers the challenge." —Vin

Orel said...

That'll be $110, Nomo.

Hideo Nomo said...

(DISCRETELY PUTS THE JERSEY BACK)

Orel said...

HOLY SHIT

Paul said...

Walk off time baby!!!

Paul said...

Paul said...

It looks like a water version of a Tarintino movie.

Paul said...

Two down. 8 to go.

Hollandsworth said...

Orel said...

Sit tight, Hollandsworth. Typing up the PGT now.

Paul said...
