LDS Game Thread: Baseball All Around

STL Chris Carpenter vs. WAS Edwin Jackson, 10a

SF Barry Zito vs. CIN TBD, 1p

BAL Miguel Gonzalez vs. NYY Hiroki Kuroda, 4.30p

DET Max Scherzer vs. OAK A.J. Griffin, 6.30p

Wow, it's a full day of baseball, which means that I'll not be working today! And tension abounds as the Reds and Tigers look to try and close out their respective series, while everybody else is even and looks to tip the balance. It's also neat, or sad, to see two former Dodgers among the eight starters. Anyway, I'm still puzzling, so this is all I can muster today.

Here's who I'd like to see win: WAS, CIN, BAL, OAK. Place your wagers.

I'm puzzled.

Hideo Nomo said...

Already 1-0 Shards.

Paul said...

Stupid Cardinals.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is going swimmingly.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck a duck. Kozma (of Koz) 3-run homer.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, shit.

Hideo Nomo said...

4-0 Cards, Bot 2.

Might be time to pull Edwin already.

Hideo Nomo said...

STRASBURG WOULD NOT HAVE STARTED THIS GAME. SHUT UP, TWITTER.

Spank said...

Nats be choking

Spank said...

Jim Joyce needs to go

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh, so Davey lets Edwin hit with a guy in scoring position. OK, then.

Hideo Nomo said...

That move will only make sense if he suddenly goes into shutdown mode for the next three.

Hideo Nomo said...

Wow. Jon Heyman and I are on the same page about the Strasbitching.

Hideo Nomo said...

Now Heyman is back to his stupid self. He referred to Anaheim as "the beach."

Hideo Nomo said...

Hmmm...EJax is suddenly effective. Maybe Davey knew what he was doing.

Hideo Nomo said...

Nats' last two innings:

Fly out.
Fly out.
Single.
Fly out.
Pop out.
Double.
Fly out.
Fly out.

Ugh.

Hideo Nomo said...

Carpenter 2 for 2 and halfway to the cycle.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fly out.

rbnlaw said...

I get the Strasbitching only in that the rotation with him would probably favor the Nats. Otherwise, they seem exposed to the grind.

rbnlaw said...

And Fuck the Gnats, not the Nats.

Hideo Nomo said...

Annnd...Michael Morse leaves 'em loaded with...wait for it...a fly out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Two on, two out for Edge.

Hideo Nomo said...

Pop out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Rosenthal followed a 100 mph fastball with an 82 mph curveball. Zoinks.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dusty should hang out with this guy.

Hideo Nomo said...

What a dumpster fire.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I feel the Giant-hating stirring within me.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, fuck that noise.

Hideo Nomo said...

A pinch runner when you're up 8-0? Fuck off, Matheny.

Hideo Nomo said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Thank God it's Zito, because that is not an auspicious start.

Franklin Stubbs said...

If the Reds manage to fuck this series up, I will never forgive them.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Walkies!

Hideo Nomo said...

STOOPID DINNER

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'll still take it.

Hideo Nomo said...

Me too, but Zito's walking everyone in sight and Dinner goes up there and hacks. Dolt.

Hideo Nomo said...

MOTHERFUCKER.

Hideo Nomo said...

Nats lose, Giants up 3-1, and I'm too "at work" to get drunk.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fuck!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Time to stop paying attention for a while.

Franklin Stubbs said...

A scoreless inning? Halle-fucking-lujah*

*So I lied. Sue me.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I don't care for the cut of Gregor Blanco's jib.

Franklin Stubbs said...

3-2 now. You got this chump.

Do it for Schottzie!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Holy shit, Z is already out?

Franklin Stubbs said...

What the hell kind of lineup are the Reds using, anyway?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Comment streak...

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, Dusty and the Reds really, really want to show how impotent they are. You're facing Zito, and you can't score. You keep getting two guys on, and you can't score. You've got the home field advantage with one measley game to win, and you suck.

Reds, you suck.

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCKINGSHITFUCKASSBALLS

Franklin Stubbs said...

*cries*

Franklin Stubbs said...

I can totally see these fuckers tip-toeing through again, al a 2010, and winning it all.

Hideo Nomo said...

I was pulling for the Nats/A's "Hey, good for you!" World Series and I'm going to get the Giants/Yankees "Hey, fuck me, you, and everything!" World Series.

Franklin Stubbs said...

In such a scenario, I would fully be on the Yankee bandwagon.

I will use my outdoor voice at all times, wear team gear to sporting events in which said team is not competing, and refer to all other clubs in a condescending your-guys-are-just-ok manner.

I fucking hate the Yankees, but once was enough. Fuck. Those. Guys.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Lead-off double. How will it be squandered?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Got one back. More please.

Spank said...

FUCK.THE.GNATS.

FUCK.THE.REDS.

Spank said...

Fucking 'ell

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCK EVERYTHING!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Wow, this is an epic fail in play here in Cincinnati

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ah, fuck it all. I'm out.

Paul said...

I hate the Giants so much. It is unhealthy.

Franklin Stubbs said...

^unpossible.

Paul said...

It feels unhealthy right now.

Paul said...

Images of D. Baker not happy and the Giants winning fucks with my head sometimes.

Paul said...

Le sigh. Go Baltimore!

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm on pace to hate all four outcomes.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT! I was just about to post the same thing Gnomes said.

Spank said...

I'm on pace to be belligerent.

Dusty Baker said...

Well fuck me running.

Hideo Nomo said...

Come on, Oaktown. You're my last hope.

Dusty Baker said...

A's have come from behind 44 times.

Dusty Baker said...

Wooooah woooah is the disco call

Spank said...

Nice fucking play by the A's 3b.

Spank said...

Fiel-duh!

Dusty Baker said...

Am I seriously going to go 4-0 in not having any of the teams I wanted to win, win?

Spank said...

Ruh oh. Apostrophes make a comeback

Steve Sax said...

Holy shit, one of my picks is STILL ALIVE!!!!

Spank said...

3-3 man on second one out bottom of 9th

Spank said...

Oooooooooooooo that was close to a hit.

Spank said...

Is that the Domino's guy all sad in the stand?

Steve Sax said...

(that is, they haven't lost yet; A's tie it with two runs in the bottom of the ninth, still one out with a RISP)

Spank said...

^seats,i mean

Spank said...

Swing,bitch!

Spank said...

GAME OVER

Dusty Baker said...

And the shaggy white guy A's fans go crazy!!!!

Spank said...

Coco Loco comes through

Dusty Baker said...

Of course I go 1-3. I can't even be perfect in my ineptitude.

Spank said...

*raps like a white guy*

Spank said...

Steve Sax said...

Spank said...
