Game 29 Thread: May 4 @ Giants, 6p

Sue Falsone's Secret Plan

Matt Magill (0-0, 2.70 ERA) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (1-2, 6.23 ERA)

What have we done to anger the Baseball Gods? What more could happen? Actually, I hesitate even to ask that for fear of the answer. Here's the way our injuries this season break down:

Which doesn't even include Hanley Ramirez's latest injury, a left hamstring injury that appears it will send him back to the DL. Call-ups, send-downs, options, DFAs, etc. likely to ensue before today's game.

At this point, our only hope is to immerse several key, injured players into a rejuvenation chamber and let the bacta work its magic.

May the fourth be with you today, Matt!

Spank said...

I'm making party with or without a win.

FUCK THE GNATS!!

Erin said...

We're starting off so well.

Spank said...

Don't fuck up,Magoo!

Spank said...

goddamnit motherfucker

Erin said...

Don't worry. Our offense can totally overcome a two-run deficit.

Spank said...

finally an out.

Spank said...

si se puede....no

karen said...

How could that fat ass score on anything on the infield??

Spank said...

3- 0 gnats.1 out.

yeah,we got this.

karen said...

I can't believe we got out of that clusterfuck with giving up only 3 runs.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm making party with my left hand.

Spank said...

that's a wrap

karen said...

You're no Dexter Fowler, Pagan.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I'm making pity party with Stone IPA. :(

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Dodgers scored a run? Holy shit

MR.F said...

Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

BJ Killeen said...

The silver lining: the worse we play, the sooner Donnie gets the chop.

BJ Killeen said...

This game is so painful I'm putting myself on the DL.

Erin said...

We score two runs on a Matt Kemp hit. But Hairston is now limping.

Erin said...

We are suddenly making this a game. Where the hell did this come from? Come on, guys!

Even though Hairston probably broke his leg and is getting it amputated in the dugout or something.

karen said...

What the hell is going on??

Erin said...

Karen, seriously the exact words that just came out of my mouth.

Erin said...

If you gave up when it was 5-0, 5-1, or 6-1, you're missing a hell of a time here in the fifth inning.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Speechless

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Was that a rally? I haven't seen one in a while and can't remember what they look like

BJ Killeen said...

It appears I selected the wrong inning to take a shower. However, if it helps, I'll go back in.

MR.F said...

Wait.... what?

MR.F said...

Okay guys, please let's win this one!

karen said...

Matty, my boy!! I just heart you!!

Erin said...

This is not going to be easy. That drive by Sandoval just stopped my heart.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Cmon boys lets do that rally thing again!

karen said...

Ahhh...Wouldn't that be just heartbreaking if Diablo Pagan was injured??

Erin said...

Oyster just got nailed in the pubes.

Nevermind. Looked more like the knee.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Damn the real Dodgers are back... Leaving two RISP

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Hold the lead. Lets go!

BJ Killeen said...

Heading back in the shower.

Erin said...

Struck out two and then let the tying run score on a fucking wild pitch (or passed ball; I didn't hear the call). Unreal.

karen said...

FLASH!!!!!!!!!!

karen said...

Hurry BJ!! Back in the shower!

Dusty Baker said...

"Hurry BJ!! Back in the shower!" - Jerry Sandusky

Erin said...

Ethier gets on, and now THEY HAVE THE BUNT ON FOR AJ ELLIS.

And we get what we fucking deserve for that shit. DP.

Dusty Baker said...

This will not end well.

Orel said...

Did I miss anything?

Orel said...

Seriously, how did Buster Posey not hit a walk-off grand slam there?

Orel said...

Bill Shaikin ‏@BillShaikin 32m

Giants have played 30 games. Santiago Casilla has appeared in 18 of them. This is his sixth appearance in eight days.

Orel said...

Looks like I'm taking the night shift in this thread.

Orel said...

Wow, Andre works the walk. A.J. up.

Orel said...

So JHJ pulled his hammy too?

Orel said...

A.J. with the harmless fly out. Giants scheduled to walk off in the 10th.

Orel said...

League vs. Pence. Ugliest match-up ever?

Orel said...

Pence stands in the batter's box like he's on a moving subway train.

Orel said...

League Ks Pence.

Orel said...

Giants walk off. Again.

Spank said...

goddamnitmotherfuckingshit!

karen said...

I'm with Spank.

Goodnight all.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Meh. At least they showed an ounce of fortitude, for a change. I wasn't expecting much from Magill either. Walk-off shmalk-off, you still suck ass, F'risco!

Brandon league is not good
