Game 42 Thread: May 19 @ Barves, 10:30a

Matt Magill (0-0, 6.92) vs. Mike Minor (5-2, 2.75).

After yesterday's dispiriting loss, and the dispiriting loss the day before that, in what has been a most dispiriting season, we get to today's game, which will almost certainly be another dispiriting loss for the last-place Dodgers that will complete the first-place Barves' dispiriting sweep.

Each team is starting a pitcher with the initials MM, but only Atlanta's MM belongs in the majors right now. Minor is fresh off a win over the gritty Diamondbacks, while the Dodgers have yet to win a game started by Magill. (Sometimes it seems they have yet to win a game started by anyone.)

For the tattered bullpen's sake, let's hope Magill can eat a few innings today, because this road trip continues tomorrow in Milwaukee.

So: crappy team, yet we keep pulling for them. That's dispirit!

At least we can lose early and have a LOT of time to drink.

Steve Sax said...

I'm up!

Hideo Nomo said...

I don't see a corner being turned here, guys. My only solace is that the Gnats were also 7 games out of first after game 41 last year. Of course, they were in second, not last, but still.

Hideo Nomo said...

Boy, that first place team from last year must feel pretty stupid!

Paul said...

I've got a bad feeling about this.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nomo

(drinks)

Dusty Baker said...

Surely the baseball gods will let us win game #42, no?

I'm wearing my Jackie t-shirt today to prompt the aforementioned baseball gods.

Neeebs said...

my spider sense is tingling.

Dusty Baker said...

There it is....Neeebs has felt it.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is too early to start drinking some dis spirits?

Dusty Baker said...

@DBT

Official SoSG ruling: No. No it is not.

karen said...

Dispirited is a perfect theme for todays GT. I am really feeling it. I'm taking care of my mom so I can't even drink to get throgh todays effort :( I'm going to have to take this game straight. If the rain stops.

Dusty Baker said...

Hang in there, Karen! It's all part of the process.

Dusty Baker said...

We gonna get this one in, weather gods?

Spank said...

Man, I got all amped to watch the Dodgers and instead they are showing Ray Romano.Fuck this shit.Stoopid rain.



BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

Dodgers in a suck delay.

Orel said...

Los Angeles Dodgers ‏@Dodgers 1m

First pitch is expected at 12:15pm PT.

Spank said...

Watching Matlock,Vinny!

Hideo Nomo said...

So...Mark Ellis is activated, but they sent down FedEx instead of shooting Cruz into space or just letting Ramon Hernandez disintegrate. I...don't get it.

Paul said...

Damn I had to move back my schedule. Scratch disappointment and crying from 2:15 to 3:45. Thanks rain.

karen said...

Make that 7 hits, Psycho!!

Spank said...

holy shit! we have a runner on third!

Spank said...

that was pathetic,matty.

Spank said...

A Gone RBI single scores Crawdude.

karen said...

We have a run and it's only the 1st inning!!

Paul said...

Probably our last run.

Orel said...

Sound familiar?

karen said...

Strike 'em out, throw 'em out!

Spank said...

Urine strikes out. What's new?

karen said...

I don't like Psycho's nickname for Punto "The Little Pony". Just doesn't seem like something a man would like to be called.

Spank said...

Magoo strikes out to end the inning.

Rain starting.

Shit.

BJ Killeen said...

Captain's Log, star date 5.19.13. Icemaker broken. Can't make margaritas. Not gonna lie...things are bleak at the Killeen house. Hoping for a team win. Otherwise, I can't be responsible for the morale of the crew.

Spank said...

wow,we didn't give up a run in that inning. amazing.

Spank said...

KEMP DOUBLE!!!!

Spank said...

RUNNERS ON THIRD AND SECOND WITH ONE OUT!

Spank said...

OMG!

Spank said...

WE SCORED AGAIN!

Spank said...

*faints*

Dusty Baker said...

Are You Ins!!!

2-0 Blue.

Dusty Baker said...

@BJ

Make margaritas the old fashioned way since the machine is broken. Get back to the basics!

Dusty Baker said...

On two caddies and a beer, Vinny!

BJ Killeen said...

@ Dusty: Without ice?? How?

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

@BJ

Check your email for a great recipe I have for making ice. I got it from my grandmother.

BJ Killeen said...

Roger that DB

Dusty Baker said...

Urine dribbles back into the dugout. I get more disgusted by his fat fetid presence every day.

Orel said...

Just got the Killeen distress signal. Hang in there, guys!

Dusty Baker said...

Sittdown, Upton, you little bitch. Stop that staring shit.

Dusty Baker said...

BJ be on the lookout for a SoSG-logoed helicopter to drop in some ice for you, packed in dry ice.

Orel said...

KKKKKK

Wow!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm beginning to like this Magill kid - right up until the time I'm sure I'll question his very existence when he gives up a grand slam.

BJ Killeen said...

Don't wanna speak to soon or jinx it, but Magill is doing well...

BJ Killeen said...

Thanks, Orel...watching the sky...

BJ Killeen said...

My Ballpark Empire game says we win 10-6 today...

Spank said...

can't we go to the store and buy a bag of ice? or take a huge as cup and fill it with ice at 7-11,yo.

BJ Killeen said...

Careful..that bat has rabies.

BJ Killeen said...

I think Kemp really has a problem with depth perception.

Orel said...

So he's like Charley Steiner?

QuadSevens said...

Cracking a beer and joining the fun! Kemp with a fly out.

Dusty Baker said...

WiFI back in working order.

Let's see, what did I mi--

GODDAMMIT!

QuadSevens said...

Upton gets on to lead off. Heading to the pen now. Start praying.

Dusty Baker said...

(calls Ktulu)

Orel said...

Mercy rule?

QuadSevens said...

JP Howell in and the tarp is out.

Erin said...

Lyons says Magill hasn't been "effective" this year.

Gee, it's almost as though the kid wasn't ready to pitch in the majors in the first place, huh, Lyons?

BJ Killeen said...

Please let it pour!

QuadSevens said...

Mother Nature is having mercy on us right now.

Paul said...

Go rain!

Orel said...

Yay, alternate program!

BJ Killeen said...

Stop showing Dodgers retrospectives. It's despiriting.

Hideo Nomo said...

Rain, rain, don't go away,
Give us win the easy way!

Dusty Baker said...

(despirits)

Hideo Nomo said...

^ a win

Paul said...

Dodgers can legally win the pennant?

Paul said...

Hope the Dodgers take this down time to scribble on Donny's nuts.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm taking advantage of this time to scribble on my own nuts.

Dusty Baker said...

Tarp coming off the field, according to the Twitters.

QuadSevens said...

@Paul and @DB

LOL!

Dusty Baker said...

(scribbles)

Paul said...

Darn we have to keep playing?

Dusty Baker said...

Per Lyons:

"Taking the tarp off now but they say there is about a 10 minute window before more rain..."

Dusty Baker said...

We're back...at least momentarily.

Dusty Baker said...

*WHEW*

If not foul, that would have gone deep to North Carolina.

Dusty Baker said...

Seriously. Ellis? Jesus shit.

Paul said...

Fuck !

Dusty Baker said...

If Howell keeps taking this long, the next weather pattern will move in and we'll have a chance.

QuadSevens said...

Rain falling again. All the fans have taken cover.

QuadSevens said...

Two straing foul balls off SVS's foot. He's down.

Dusty Baker said...

Why do the baseball gods hate us so???

QuadSevens said...

Pop out. Doesn't look like he's limping much. Might be ok.

Dusty Baker said...

Grizzlies got spanked today by Spurs.

QuadSevens said...

Those old guys sure can play.

Paul said...

A one run lead feels like we are losing.

Spank said...

*spanks*

karen said...

Here we go...

Paul said...

Does our starting lineup as a whole have 14 homeruns?

Dusty Baker said...

Got out of a jam. Still a lot of time to fuck this up, though.

Dusty Baker said...

Gurrier, Guerra, and League left in the pen.

To my last comment's point.

karen said...

This is the scary time.

Dusty Baker said...

Last time we had a base hit was just after the war. World War I that was. It was a hot summer that season, and the cicadas was out mighty bad. You sees...

Spank said...

it's in the bag

Steve Sax said...

Dee Gordon now batting .191. Weak sauce.

karen said...

My well honed psychic abilities are telling me this isn't good.

Paul said...

League coming in to close the game for the Braves.

Spank said...

fucking awesome defense right there

Spank said...

thank you,League. Can they have another?

Dusty Baker said...

Somewhere out there, Garvey, Cey, Lopes, and Russell are embarrassed at what has become of the Dodgers infield.

Dusty Baker said...

Did any League pitch miss a bat?

Spank said...

Game called due to suckiness by Dodgers.

karen said...

Brandon League will be Atlanta's MVP this season.

Paul said...

It's going to be a cruel summer.

Spank said...

Little League.

Dusty Baker said...

Pee Wee League, indeed.

Dusty Baker said...

"The offense has slowed for the Dodgers." - Collins

How on fucking earth could it have gotten any slower than it already was?

karen said...

How in the world can League face his teammates?

Paul said...

We have 3 hits and 3 errors thru eight. That's was 200 million plus gets us.

Paul said...

^ what


E-PJ

Paul said...

I have more faith in my sobriety than in the Dodgers scoring even two runs in this inning.

BJ Killeen said...

Frickin. I stopped watching. Thought we won. THIS SUCKS DONKEY DICK.

Paul said...

Awful Kemp.

Dusty Baker said...

That was the suckingest ass suckwaddish at bat I've seen in a long time, Kemp, and I've been watching all yours.

BJ Killeen said...

our new name: The Los Angeles Limbergers...what's your new name?

Spank said...

Jesus Christ! How can Matty face his teammates? Dude is hitting for shit. Fuck this. Magic needs to go at these mutts like gangbusters and tell them the honeymoon is over. Get to work,play hard and win assholes.

BJ Killeen said...

a walk; BFD

Paul said...

Dre and Kemp, use to be our Batman and Superman now our Punch and Judy.

BJ Killeen said...

It's raining because God is crying

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Paul said...

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain.
I like watching the puddles gather rain.
