Game 100 Thread: July 24 @ Blue Jays, 4p

"I once caught a fish THISBIG!"

Ricky Nolasco (6-9, 3.75) vs. Esmil Rogers (3-4, 3.84).

What in the name of holy heck is going on here? The Dodgers are currently invincible — down 8-3 after Capuano and Marmol torched the place? No problem! — and are in position for their second straight sweep against an east coast team. They could use the momentum, too, because the Cincinnati not-nearly-as-sucky-as-Toronto Reds will be waiting at Dodger Stadium tomorrow evening.

The Blue Jays held a players-only meeting before yesterday's game, so they figure to be especially desperate today. No word if they've promised Esmil Rogers that they'll rename the Rogers Centre for him if he wins.

Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick 2m

Matt Kemp disabled, Ted Lilly activated.

BJ Killeen said...

Beat me to the punch, Nomo...

QuadSevens said...

Hmmm...I think I'd prefer cheerleader Kemp over Lilly pitching.

Steve Sax said...

Shit. Get well soon, Matty.

Steve Sax said...

Can we trade Lilly for Kemp?

Fred's Brim said...

@Q7 - well said

Fred's Brim said...

dammit all, squeezing us again?

Hideo Nomo said...

YAY PICKOFFS!

Fred's Brim said...

Got him leaning, Pretty Ricky picks off Reyes

Fred's Brim said...

oh man, it actually says "Astroturf" on the field. I didn't realize it existed anymore. I thought the only use for astroturf was to make a "yard" down at the trailer park

Fred's Brim said...

cheezus, ump, that was nowhere near the zone

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah, I'm only on Gameday, but this ump is screwy as hell.

Fred's Brim said...

Dre gets us started with single up the middle

Fred's Brim said...

Rogers tried to hit AJ and missed, then tried again and got him

Fred's Brim said...

Third HBP against us this series? When do we start throwing back?

BJ Killeen said...

That's it. I'm taking lip-reading classes.

Fred's Brim said...

Skip with a laserbeam up the middle, 5 hole on Rogers, so hard that Dre couldn't score from second, RA for Uribe

BJ Killeen said...

Good time for a gs uribe

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe with a looooong fly ball to the wall in center, Rasmus caught it running against the wall, Dre tags and scores from third

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow, Uribe crushed that.

Fred's Brim said...

so close

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, MEllis with a GIDP

we only got 1 out of that - damn

Fred's Brim said...

holy damn, great running play by Uribe at third to get Encarnacion

Steve Sax said...

We only got 1 run from bases loaded no out? Are we reverting to the May 2013 Dodgers?

Fred's Brim said...

Good inning, Ricky
38 pitches in 2 innings isn't great, but still

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy - Uribe blasted one that Rasmus made a really good play on, inning-changing play

Fred's Brim said...

Crawpappy with a hard single up the middle

Fred's Brim said...

PUIG! Yas with a laserbeam off th wall in left, CC scores from first!

Steve Sax said...

Nice RBI double by Puig there, but Psycho Lyons is (correctly) ripping him for standing there and admiring it instead of running.

Steve Sax said...

Puig's gonna be hit next inning...

Steve Sax said...

2-0 LA

Fred's Brim said...

AG gets him over with a grounder

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hanley, you're not THAT hot. That thing was two feet out of the strike zone. Especially this ump's strike zone.

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh - Hanley looked awful in that AB

Fred's Brim said...

that was poor, gotta get him home from third with less than 2 outs

Fred's Brim said...

Nice play by MEllis to get Izturis

Fred's Brim said...

hard liner to left but right at Skip

Fred's Brim said...

fly out to center, nice inning Rick

Fred's Brim said...

AJ gets on with a single up the middle. seems like there have been a ton of those this series

Fred's Brim said...

Skip draws the walk, first and second, nobody out

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe pops out to short, 1 out

MR.F said...

Bill Plunkett ‏@billplunkettocr 1m
Ex-#Giants closer Brian Wilson is scheduled to throw for scouts in LA area Thursday. #Dodgers will have scouts there. Had TJ surgery in 2012

Fred's Brim said...

MEllis Ks and lets the ump know what he thinks of his strike zone

Fred's Brim said...

oh no, please no Wilson

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh - Crawdaddy so far behind the fastball
2 on, no out wasted

Fred's Brim said...

I do like the fact we are getting on base though

Fred's Brim said...

Wow! Great catch by Puig against the bullpen wall/fence

MR.F said...

Another great catch by Puig

Steve Sax said...

Un'roided Melky pops out to short

Fred's Brim said...

hanley with a nice running catch in short left

Steve Sax said...

ump goes ouch

Fred's Brim said...

Ump gets nailed

Cliff Beefpile said...

Shit. How many times have the Giants tried to leave SF? At least twice?

Cliff Beefpile said...

The ump looks like he's 19 years old!

BJ Killeen said...

Hey ump. Try standing behind the catcher and not off to the side. It will protect you and you'll actually be able to call balls and strikes correctly. Just a suggestion

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Ricky

Fred's Brim said...

good recovery, Ricky

Fred's Brim said...

Rogers giving Puig something to swing at tonight

Fred's Brim said...

First and second, no out again, after AG's single

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley is off after fouling those balls off his leg

Fred's Brim said...

The Toronto D helps us out again, Rancho Ardiendo for AJ

Paul said...

I'd like a couple runs here please and a side of fries.

Fred's Brim said...

god DAMMIT
terrible K by AJ
terrible low strike called with the one-armed ump

Cliff Beefpile said...

Jesus. This strike zone is starting to piss me off. That must have been payback for the passed ball that hit him.

BJ Killeen said...

That was payback for missing that ball

Fred's Brim said...

take more pitches, fools!

Paul said...

Clean single here Skip.

Paul said...

Damn that was a big opportunity missed.

8 stranded.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh
this is going to come back to haunt us

Fred's Brim said...

nasty breaking ball from Ricky to get Not-Chico Lind

Fred's Brim said...

damn ump, you called that a strike before

Fred's Brim said...

Throw strikes, Ricky!

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh

Fred's Brim said...

just like that, all gone

Fred's Brim said...

fuck

Fred's Brim said...

2-2, only 1 hit for Toronto, Nolasco up to a million pitches

Cliff Beefpile said...

I don't like the commercial, but I think I have a bit of a thing for the sales girl in that Honda ad.

Fred's Brim said...

damn - Crawford just missed a Dre homer

Fred's Brim said...

this is headed down a super frustrating path

Fred's Brim said...

that was a halfhearted attempt on that grounder

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Paco, finish this inning

Cliff Beefpile said...

Somebody needs to tell these goddamn Canadians to stop interfering with the ball in play.

Fred's Brim said...

damn damn damn, AJ nearly untied it

MR.F said...

Ethier stays hot.

Fred's Brim said...

things are not breaking right tonight

Fred's Brim said...

cheezus, great pickup, awful throw by Hanley

Fred's Brim said...

another 2-out hit coming up

Fred's Brim said...

good work, Paco

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Chris

Fred's Brim said...

o
ver
throwing

take it easy, Chris

Fred's Brim said...

finish this!

BJ Killeen said...

League? We lose.

Fred's Brim said...

phew

Steve Sax said...

With all these hits and so few runs, we definitely seem like the May 2013 Dodgers

Fred's Brim said...

as soon as Matt goes on the DL, the noffense returns

Orel said...

Steve Lyons said "one of the hotter daughters" instead of "one of the hotter Dodgers."

Fred's Brim said...

MEllis returned to earth tonight

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Belli, keep it tied

Fred's Brim said...

what a wonderful way to start the inning

Fred's Brim said...

Melky, you can go to hell

Fred's Brim said...

PR Davis steals on the first pitch

Fred's Brim said...

that was brutal

Fred's Brim said...

what the hell was that?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Poop.

Fred's Brim said...

Belli, you gotta cover that

Fred's Brim said...

this'll be a fun plane ride home to then play the Reds

Fred's Brim said...

balls
Beli was due for a dud

Steve Sax said...

League coming in. White flag.

Hideo Nomo said...

Welp, back to hoping AZ loses.

Fred's Brim said...

well done, Brandon

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, that coulda been a lot worse. HanRam still to come.

Fred's Brim said...

Puig walks to leadoff the inning, AG up

MR.F said...

Lead-off base runner.

Fred's Brim said...

awful K

Fred's Brim said...

TURF!

Cliff Beefpile said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Steve Sax said...

No way. We tied it?!?!

On that?!

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax a single by Dre that did a turf hop over Rasmus' head. Puig was running and scored from first

Fred's Brim said...

oops - i thought that said "on what?!"

Orel said...

Eric Collins had a heart attack on that scoring play.

Fred's Brim said...

League is still in

Orel said...

And the Dodgers get ready to give it right back.

Fred's Brim said...

jesus guys, do you not want to win this?

Steve Sax said...

fuck, Urine.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That's on Gonzalez. Shit.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Makes up for it, somewhat, on that play. Lawrie 'roid-raging in the dugout.

Orel said...

Two scoreless from League? Even he looks shocked.

MR.F said...

Wait what?

Fred's Brim said...

Great work, Brandon!

Orel said...

MELLIS BOMB

Cliff Beefpile said...

Mellis!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Uribe and Mellis combine to give us an extra inning lead. Who would have thought?

Orel said...

PUIG BOMB

Cliff Beefpile said...

PWEEEEEG!

Cliff Beefpile said...

"Well dere's always hockey, eh?" - Jays' fan

Spank said...

fuck yeah

Orel said...

2-RBI double for Ethier. This is ridiculous.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Still don't feel comfortable bringing in Marmol.

Paul said...

Holy shit!

Dusty Baker said...

That happened!!!

Orel said...

Why Kenley?

Fred's Brim said...

this fucking team

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel 7:49
"When you have glass, why drink out of plastic?" - Mrs. FB

Paul said...

We make party!

I'm saving up for FB's ticket.

Orel said...

Mrs. FB is a wise woman.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Cubs up 6-0! Cincy up 3-0 on the gnats.

MR.F said...

Wow.

MR.F said...

D-Bags get 2 runs. Now 6-2 Cubs.

MR.F said...
