This feels like the 17th time we've faced Richard this season.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*cries*

Hideo Nomo said...

Victorino scratched. Kemp gets to continue fraying his labrum.

New lineup:

Herrera LF
Punto 2B
Kemp CF
Gonzalez 1B
Ramirez SS
Cruz 3B
Rivera RF
Treanor C
Harang P

SECOND BASEMEN BAT SECOND

Hideo Nomo said...

No vowels? How am I supposed to anagram this shit?

Franklin Stubbs said...

That is a spectacular lineup, with an added bonus that the guys who really should be resting aren't

Steve Sax said...

That's not an iceberg on the horizon, that's Juan Uribe in an inner tube

Franklin Stubbs said...

No vowels for Yom Kippur seems appropriate, anyway.

Hideo Nomo said...

Like an inner tube would keep Uribe afloat...

Dusty Baker said...

What happened to Vic?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Presented without comment.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Bruised ovary, perhaps?

Hideo Nomo said...

Why the weird start time again?

Steve Sax said...

The lead from the ESPN game preview:

Time is running out on the Los Angeles Dodgers' playoff push, and giving the ball to Aaron Harang doesn't seem the best way for the team to pick up a needed win.

I don't know, I kinda like the sinking ship better.

Franklin Stubbs said...

If we lose and the Cards win again today, can we just rip the metaphorical band-aid and tank it tomorrow to get it over with?

Steve Sax said...

I don't know why I just saw this, but I just snarfed out my gatorade realizing that QuadSevens' fantasy football team name is "Secret Urinals".

Q7, that is frickin' awesome. I owe you a beer.

QuadSevens said...

Thanks Sax. I was trying to find a Dodgers inspired team name that didn't use a player. Then I remembered the topic of the new bathrooms and thought it sounded funny.

QuadSevens said...

If only I'd been clever enough to start Matt Schaub instead of Alex Smith last week.

Spank (Yhency) Horst said...

Is this game a must win?

Bruised ovary. heh

Franklin Stubbs said...

Employment is tiresome.

Hideo Nomo said...

Hits?

Hideo Nomo said...

RUNS?

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, run.

Hideo Nomo said...

WHAT IS GOING ON?

Hideo Nomo said...

This is a good start.

Hideo Nomo said...

2-0 Dodgers after 4 straight singles by Punto, Kemp, AGon and Hanley. Cruz and Rivera line out to end the inning.

Hideo Nomo said...

Harang walks Headley with two out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Harang not being stingy with pitches.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gadalf lines out. Harang at 23 pitches.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Stars yesterday- 9 innings, 1 run
Scrubs today- 1 inning, 2 runs

This is a completely fucked-up sport.

Hideo Nomo said...

Shockingly, the murderers' row of Treanor, Harang, and Herrera go down 1-2-3.

Hideo Nomo said...

Other than Punto, though, stars got the hits.

Franklin Stubbs said...

DAMMIT.

Hideo Nomo said...

Another two-out walk.

Hideo Nomo said...

No harm done. On to the third. And with that, I head home.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I wish...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jesus Guzman makes me think about Joel Guzman. Remember those heady days?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Again with Punto.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Again with the scoring!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Good God, I am accomplishing exactly nothing. Why am I even still here?

Spank (Yhency) Horst said...

Ya mo b there.

Steve Sax said...

Where have these dodgers been all year?!?!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Waiting until times are truly desperate to turn it around, only to come up just short?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Not that I'm bitter.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'll just leave this here.

I still don't understand, but I've come to accept it.

Paul said...

Feel that Cards? That's Juan Uribe breathing down your neck!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Is that what that is? I was wondering why I was craving french fries all of a sudden...

Paul said...

So excited if we win and cards lose we are back to pathetic place we were at yesterday minus two games.

Alex said...

BISON is back

Paul said...

We are going to have a meaningless win streak aren't we? That would sum up everything.

Alex said...

As long as we win the last 3 games...

Paul said...

I wish I could care about beating Fresno Grizzles.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I always care about that, I'd just prefer that it mean something.

There goes the shutout.

Paul said...

That's because you hate bears Stubbs.

Fred's Brim said...

this is what happens when I don't pay attention. I thought this was at 9:30 for some reason and was kind of excited to watch. I was reading the game thread and realized we were scoring a lot. then of course we start giving up runs.

Fred's Brim said...

I think i saw the 6:30 (est) start and added 3 hours

Hideo Nomo said...

T-Fed sighting? This game is nuts.

Hideo Nomo said...

HOU up 2-0.

Steve Sax said...

8-2 baby!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

Come on, finish it!

Steve Sax said...

Brewers winning

Cards LOOOOOOSING

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!
