LDS Game Thread: Pair Of (Game) Twos

With both Bay Area teams on the ropes and down 2-0, today's playoff matches shift to the other two LDS, both of which have the visiting team up 1-0:

WAS Jordan Zimmerman (12-8, 2.94) vs. STL Jaime Garcia (7-7, 3.92); 1.30p.

NYY Andy Pettitte (5-4, 2.87) vs. BAL Wei-Yin Chen (12-11, 4.02); 5p.

Here's hoping the nation's capital comes out on top (despite the Sports Illustrated jinx working against it):

Deuces wild, Vinny!

Go Ex-Expos!

Dusty Baker said...

Hell yeah, post-Senators!

Dusty Baker said...

Did Robert Smith do Bryce Harper's eye black?

Spank said...

Woopsy daisy.

Too much red for me in this game. Time to disintegrate.

Dusty Baker said...

Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me, Spanky.

Dusty Baker said...

WAS takes the early 1-0 lead on a gutsy play where Ian Desmond ran through the hold sign at third.

Men on second and third with two outs now for Nats.

Harper up. Show me show me show me a HR, Bryce!

Dusty Baker said...

And Harper strikes out.

We're in between innings.

Spank said...

Dusty won't be singing a love song to Bryce this time.

Spank said...

Bryce. lol

Hideo Nomo said...

Things could be going better for the Nats.

Dusty Baker said...

If only tonight we could get some guys out.

Dusty Baker said...

3-1 Shards.

Steve Sax said...

4-1 Cards in the third.

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

5 to one

Steve Sax said...

5-1. Zimmerman is a mess.

Dusty Baker said...

Well this blows little boys. Nats down 5-1 now.

Makes me want to kill an Arab.*


* It's a song reference, people. Don't unleash the PC police on me,

Dusty Baker said...

I just thought of a good reason for each of these series carried by TBS to go the maximum length: it puts off that godawful Big Bang Theory from being shown (on TBS). Come on, five and seven-game series!

Hideo Nomo said...

Nats are pitching like cock(atoos).

Dusty Baker said...

Nats should put their pitching coach's head on the door.

Hideo Nomo said...

I have faith the Nats can score 6 or 7 more, but the Cards will probably have scored another 10 by then.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dad busting out the "Said nobody, ever" joke on Twitter to bash the WNBA.

LOL (Tolhurst)

Dusty Baker said...

@nomo

Will that happen in this season, though?

Dusty Baker said...

Nats go back to back to make it 7-3.

Dusty Baker said...

For about seventeen seconds I thought a comeback might be brewing,

Hideo Nomo said...

You sound sad, Dust. Thinking about leaving the Nats and jumping someone else's train?

Dusty Baker said...

Heh.

Hell no. Wearing my Nats cap right now, in fact.

Oh, by the way: on the barstool at my local, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Prayers for no rain in Baltimore.

Hideo Nomo said...

Sure, your guys get you two back, then you issue The Walk, twice!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck you John Jay! I disagreed with many of your decisions when you were on the Supreme Court.

Steve Sax said...

7-3 Cards, mid 6

Dusty Baker said...

Does anyone that any of us know sit around and all drink Miller 64 together whilst doing hipster type things like playing ping pong in a dive bar?

Maybe Diamond does, but other than that, I don't know anybody. Plus, I give her more credit than that for preferring good beer.

Hideo Nomo said...

What is that, eleventy homers in this game now?

Dusty Baker said...

Nice Hobbit-speak! We might have to shift pun themes.

Dusty Baker said...

I don't think Mark McGwire has missed many second breakfasts lately.

Dusty Baker said...

Impeach Jon Jay!

Steve Sax said...

11-4 and it still isn't over yet? This game is interminable

Dusty Baker said...

Can't this be like cricket and the Cards can just declare?

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Dusty Baker said...

Even booooooooooo-ier: Yankmes v. O's is in rain delay.

Steve Sax said...

12-4. Wow, that was a drubbing.

If the Nats only had a solid starting pitcher they could use...

Dusty Baker said...

Victorino needs to let the other studio analysts get a word in edgewise. It's like they have Orlando Hudson on set.

Dusty Baker said...

Steve Sax said...

Yank Mes up 1-0. Booooo

Steve Sax said...

2-1 O's!

Spank said...

Crabulous!

Spank said...

Shit. that looked like a 3 on my tv screen. i need to get rid of my Zenith.

Franklin Stubbs said...

3-2 now. Get your shit together, Balteemore.

Spank said...

Why did I hear Steiner get all hyped up on that fly ball?

Spank said...

Whoa! Template action signing back on to SoSG.

Spank said...

I would feel better if the Crabs score at least 2 more runs before the ninth.

Spank said...

9th inning,bishes. 3-2 Crabeaterd

Spank said...

Crab eat turd

Spank said...

Ichiro slapping at the ball. Slap this!

Spank said...

2 outs. Fuck The Yank-mees

Spank said...

Why do i get the feeling the O's are going to celebrate this win like they won the World Series.

Spank said...

Is this thing on??

Spank said...

Crab eaters win!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Sit your ass back down, A-Rod.

Franklin Stubbs said...

If the Yanks and Giants can both manage to lose, I will be much happier with this post-season.

Steve Sax said...

Very excited for the O's. Let's do this!
