Game 151 Thread: Sept 21 @ Reds, 4p

Joe Blanton (9-13, 4.97) vs. Bronson Arroyo (12-8, 3.74).

The last two months, the Dodgers have been one big kick to the nuts. Just when you think we're going to break out of our offensive miasma, due to one breakout game or a ninth-inning, doubleheader-saving homerun, we slip back into our noffense ways. Even Jon Weisman can't take this shit any longer.

So here we go, a three-game series with the NL Central-leading Reds, kicking off with Samson Arroyo in the opener. Twelve games to go, so all we need is the Giants to go 1-11 on their last twelve games, while we go 12-0 and take the NL West crown. Or something like that. PLAYOFFS!

PLAYOFFS!

Hideo Nomo said...

It's at my apartment!

Hideo Nomo said...

But I'm not!

Ñeeebs said...

Lukey is busy programming all of the requisite apps.

Hideo Nomo said...

He gets my 3GS. Spoiled. Rotten.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Ladies and gentlemen,

I can't afford moving from NY back to CA to get the Dodgers back to their winning ways.

I accept full responsibility for this pathetic collapse.

But at least McCourt's gone!

Orel said...

playoffs....?

Orel said...

Go home, Nomo. Now.

Steve Sax said...

Nomo's iPhone 5 review can't go to press until after his blogger night recap!

Ñeeebs said...

Nomo drew the Friday Night short straw.


P.S.: I blame PPR

Dusty Baker said...

Did we just use the word "miasma" in a GT?

I never thought I'd see the day.

Hideo Nomo said...

Yet we've used "My ass, Ma!" a bunch of times.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dang. I gotta find a way to sneak out of work.

Hideo Nomo said...

Cubbies win!

PLAYOFFS!

I was suppose to call the season last night and I forgot. What a slacker. It can wait till this weekend.

Hideo Nomo said...

It's cool, Paul. Take your time.

Orel said...

The Reds love their insurance. State Farm and Geico ads behind home plate.

Orel said...

Kemp dunker!

Orel said...

A-Gon misses another RBI opportunity.

Orel said...

Blanton retires Mozart!

Alex said...

How are you guys not freaking out about Han Solo playing Branch Rickey in that link I posted earlier?

Orel said...

Hanley reaches on an error, steals second, Cruz singles. WILL WE SCORE?

Orel said...

1-0 Dodgers!

Orel said...

I'm weird, Alex. I only like watching previews in a theater.

Orel said...

Blanton scoreless through two. Odd.

Dusty Baker said...

We have more runs than do our opponents as we enter the third inning of play.

Alex said...

Let's savor this shit...wait shit isnt savory at all

Steve Sax said...

Still up 1-0. That's weird.

Dusty Baker said...

MMmmmm....shit.

Dusty Baker said...

"This is some good shit..." (coughs)

Alex said...

^
Earlier shit comment retracted back into black hole...

Orel said...

A-Gon with a jack to the warning track.

Alex said...

Chances bronson arroyo's CD sucks?

Orel said...

Guys on both teams must have dinner plans after the game.

Dusty Baker said...

I have dinner plans during the game.

Paul said...

k I am watching the game....but on mute.

Orel said...

Joe-Joe with four scoreless!

Orel said...

One things about noffense: It doesn't take a lot of time.

Paul said...

I like breaking bones quickly.

Orel said...

Siddown, Stubbs!

Dusty Baker said...

I had to go sit on the throne in my house, but I could hear Lyons and Collins. They made it more difficult to "produce" while I was in the can.

Orel said...

Collins & Lyons: nature's cork.

Paul said...

Broxton is stuck in the bullpen.

Dusty Baker said...

Nature's cork. Exactly. Their broadcast is like the opposite of White Castle burgers.

Orel said...

Nice double-clutch, Rivera. 1-1 tie.

Paul said...

Figures. Nice triple clutch Rivera

Alex said...

Arroyo RBI - this feels about right

Hideo Nomo said...

SoSG looks good and loads snappy on the iPhone 5.

And really, that's all that matters.

Paul said...

Double Dammit!!

Hideo Nomo said...

Aw shit, we're not winning anymore?

Dusty Baker said...

@Nomo

So iPhone 5 enhances the actual look and feel of the SoSG site?

Dusty Baker said...

We are not winning. On the other hand, we are not losing.

Steve Sax said...

Juan Rivera was never known for his glove.

UNTIL HE COULDN'T TAKE THE BALL OUT OF HIS GODDAMN GLOVE

Orel said...

A
W
O

Orel said...

See ya, Joe.

Paul said...

The Dodgers do not enhance the look and feel of the SOSG website.

Orel said...

Oh good. Another IBB.

Orel said...

Good job, Choate. Good effort.

Orel said...

Tolleson shuts down XP to escape!

Orel said...

Joe West calls a foul a ball because he says Kenley Jansen "quick-pitched" it.

Orel said...

Eric Stephen ‏@truebluela

re: Kenley Jansen v. Joe West RT @ToddCoffey60: If nobodies on base you don't have to come set

Orel said...

1-2-3 for Kenley. Still tied going into the 8th.

Alex Cora said...

Doesnt arroyo look like a long haired Jamie Moyer?

Orel said...

I can see the resemblance.

Orel said...

Will the Dodgers include Abreu on their postseason roster?

Orel said...

Because...PLAYOFFS!

Orel said...

Andre bloop single. Whatever it takes.

Orel said...

Kemp flies out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Knofe Ents!

Orel said...

Brox!

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, our first baseman Loney is so fucking bad at the plate, ....

Oh wait a second, that's AGon.

Hideo Nomo said...

Because of course.

Spank Horst said...

2 bunts in a row and Mellis shows bunt. Fuck man. Get a single at least.Fuck this small ball crap.

Orel said...

E Herrera hit by pitch.
A Ellis sacrificed into fielder's choice to first, E Herrera to second.
N Punto hit for R Belisario.
N Punto sacrificed to pitcher, E Herrera to third, A Ellis to second.
M Ellis walked.

How is there only one out?

Orel said...

J.P. Hoornstra ‏@jphoornstra

As Russell Martin his a 10th-inning home run for the Yankees, the Dodgers wouldn't mind one of those right about now.

Spank Horst said...

Rancho Drediendo

Orel said...

Andre goes down on three pitches.

Spank Horst said...

You are useless,Dre.

Paul said...

A homerun yes. A Russell Martin no.

Spank Horst said...

Come on Matty.

Spank Horst said...

Matty drives in two with a single.

Paul said...

Attta boy Matt!

Orel said...

Matty looked pretty tied up on that AB. Pretty impressive recovery there.

Alex said...

Alex said...

THROW STRIKES!

Orel said...

Thanks, Dioner!

Spank Horst said...
