Game 87 Thread: July 7 @ Giants, 1p

All-Star, franchise savior.

Clayton Kershaw (7-5, 1.93) vs. Chad Gaudin (2-1, 2.60).

What, no Timmy? We were hoping for another classic Kershaw-Lincecum matchup, especially since their last meeting went so well. Instead we get spot-starter Gaudin against a Dodgers team that better damn well be ready to make up for yesterday's sloppy play with sparkling defense and laser-like hitting.

Oh, and while we're at it: VOTE PUIG!

BJ Killeen said...

Let's do it!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

We can have lights out pitching and everyone hitting, but if they can't catch the fucking ball, what's the use? Really, 65 NL-leading errors for this team. Pathetic.

I'm just bitter cuz I picked up Fife in one of my fantasy teams. He (I) should've gotten a "W" last night. And, we lost to the Gnats.

Dusty Baker said...

Focus that bitterness, DBT! Feel the hate.

Paul said...

Come on Dodgers, beat the smugness out of these jerks.

Paul said...

Molluscs pubes always looks constipated.

Dusty Baker said...

Fife keeps his spot, Crap to bullpen.

No Kemp today, but Mattingly says he'll be ready tomorrow.

(multiple sources)

Steve Sax said...

We've gone from an Ellis-less lineup to a Ellis & Ellis real estate lineup. Funny.

Dusty Baker said...

"EEK" spelled by the last three players.

Paul said...

I've have a good feeling about today. I don't like it.

Dusty Baker said...

Nats over Pod Rays 7-1 early.

Dusty Baker said...

So Crapuano to the pen. Does it have to be OUR bullpen?

Paul said...

Yankees are on a roll. That's annoying. I feel better

Paul said...

Cap joins Brandon in the never a good time to pitch spot. One more and we have the reverse nasty boys.

Dusty Baker said...

At my cantina, Vinny!

Fred's Brim said...

on the couch, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Whose couch, FB?

Fred's Brim said...

the one soaked with my ass sweat

Orel said...

Scutaro deserves to make the All-Star Game for fielding that grounder.

Fred's Brim said...

Puig's shoulder is still hurt, isn't it?

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel - you could just feel the grit

Orel said...

Five straight Ks for Puig.

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh, everyone except Puig saw that coming

Fred's Brim said...

gift strike 1

Fred's Brim said...

call those both way, blue

Fred's Brim said...

ways

Orel said...

Everything's turning up Giants!

Fred's Brim said...

damn
i hope our luck isn't drying up

Dusty Baker said...

All pitchers know the book on Puig: low and away and he'll swing at it. Why hasn't Big Mac talked to him and said DON'T FUCKING SWING AT THAT SHIT OR I'LL HAVE YOU BY THE NECK LIKE I DID MATT WILLIAMS!

Orel said...

K

Dusty Baker said...

Just saw that comment above...I thought same thing - one of those strikes wasn't a strike vs Puig.

Orel said...

With that single, Scutaro just became an All-Star starter.

Dusty Baker said...

Kershaw should have hit Scutaro in the face. That way he wouldn't have gotten that hit.

Dusty Baker said...

^ You just don't get this kind of expert commentary on other blogs.

Paul said...

Great story Vin!

Steve Sax said...

To the second, no score

Fred's Brim said...

good job, Clayton
defense, tighten it up

Orel said...

Hanley trippple!

Orel said...

How did Pence not magically catch that with a tractor beam in his glove?

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley!

Orel said...

There's your run, Clayton.

Paul said...

Nice! Lets go Uribe!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Dre!

Dusty Baker said...

Lets get something big going, Uribe!

Orel said...

Great play by Scutaro. He's now set to manage the NL All-Star team.

Fred's Brim said...

yikes
i hate when we give away baserunners like that

Dusty Baker said...

You can't have a hit and run play without, well, the hit part of it.

Fred's Brim said...

heh heh "gobbling it up is Uribe"

Fred's Brim said...

great inning, Clayton

Dusty Baker said...

This will end up what, 2-1 Dodgers or 3-2 Dodgers?

Cliff Beefpile said...

"Lets get something big going, Uribe!" - Dusty

It's like some kind of bizarro world! :)

Fred's Brim said...

i will definitely take either of those results

Fred's Brim said...

it's OK to take a walk, Crawdaddy

Cliff Beefpile said...

Gaudin's a reliever, they'll figure him out. I predict 5-2, because the bullpen will give up a run.

Dusty Baker said...

I've got something big going.

cc: Neeebs' mom

Orel said...

Damn, Vin is on fire today.

karen said...

Another great story Vinny. I missed you yesterday.

Fred's Brim said...

yuck - cut the sloppy shit

Fred's Brim said...

stupid wild pitch

Fred's Brim said...

Scutaro's gonna hit a homer today, just to make me mad

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Clayton

Dusty Baker said...

I'm telling you, this all goes back to not drilling Scutaro in the fucking face.

Fred's Brim said...

the butterfly effect, but with Scutaro's face

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

And there's the PGT theme.

Fred's Brim said...

Vin a such a pro
I would have goofed up "Displicablimp" 10 times before I figured it out

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy, Yas

Dusty Baker said...

WNt to the pisser. How did Puig get on first?

Fred's Brim said...

woah that was close

Fred's Brim said...

@DB Puig hit the first pitch on a line to center

Fred's Brim said...

GOD DAMN he hammered that! just foul

Orel said...

"Shirt-sleeved"!

Fred's Brim said...

hehe i liked that too

karen said...

Just a long strike. Shit. I hate everything gnat related.

Steve Sax said...

Gaudin keeps coming inside on hanley

Orel said...

Vin has said "rhubarb" multiple times today.

Fred's Brim said...

cant throw to a fielder not on a base?

Orel said...

That fell apart quickly.

Fred's Brim said...

dumb

Steve Sax said...

Not sure why Puig would be running there

Hanley looks like he wanted to give up that AB on purpose, to tell Puig to stop stealing his rbi

Dusty Baker said...

What a fucking terrible inning. What are we doing out there? That was a manager issue. Fucking fuckig fuck.

Fred's Brim said...

here comes a shitty 3-run inning for the Giants

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

I thought same thing. We must be, like, brothers or something.

Orel said...

Davey giving it (via translator) to Yasiel re: the stupid SB attempt. Love it.

Orel said...

Bill Plunkett ‏@billplunkettocr 5m

Rough inning for umps at AT&T Park. They just missed a balk - Gaudin threw pickoff to Scutaro who was nowhere near 2B, never moved toward it

Orel said...

Getting reamed out.

David Vassegh ‏@THEREAL_DV 1m

Not sure what Puig was doing in dugout, but he wasn't in RF when Pablo Sandoval was announced. He was jogging out at that point

Fred's Brim said...

Rockies are playing dead now but will probably revive themselves next weekend

Fred's Brim said...

good job, fellas

Cliff Beefpile said...

Ethier is back to pissing me off.

Orel said...

Cy Gaudin

Fred's Brim said...

not a strike, blue

Paul said...

I lost that loving feeling.

Orel said...

I know that losing feeling.

Cliff Beefpile said...

What a play by Uribe!

Fred's Brim said...

wow - nice work, Uribe!

Orel said...

"So we have five innings in the books and it's a best seller." —Vin

Paul said...

Score some runs for the Kid!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

nice inning, Clayton

MR.F said...

Can you vote as many times as you want for Puig?

MR.F said...

I ask because I haven't hit a limit just yet.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck you, Gauguin! Post-impressionism sucks!

Cliff Beefpile said...

So, ankle-height qualifies as a strike now, ump?

Fred's Brim said...

that's low, blue

Paul said...

Walk a pitcher with a .000 average to lead off the inning. Nothing to see here.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Clayton!

MR.F said...

Still haven't hit the limit.

Fred's Brim said...

no fucking excuse for that

Orel said...

UJTD!

Steve Sax said...

This Running with friends thing is strangely compelling.

BJ Killeen said...

You're lucky Kershaw. Let's heat up these bats...

Orel said...

This smells suspiciously like a Giants walk-off.

Fred's Brim said...

meek

Orel said...

Hanley with the meaningless double.

Dusty Baker said...

What the hell is running with friends?

What the hell is running?

MR.F said...

What the hell are friends?

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Uribe! You're our only hope.

Dusty Baker said...

Well played as always, mr. f.

BJ Killeen said...

Get a HR Uribe and shove it up their ass...

Orel said...

We are offically back to sucking.

MR.F said...

Damn. I guess I'll just keep voting for Puig.

Dusty Baker said...

Truly suckilicious.

BJ Killeen said...

I guess we're back to calling him Urine...

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Clayton, another good inning please

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to keep voting for Kang.

karen said...

YAY!! The Kid nails posey!!

Fred's Brim said...

god DAMMIT that shit is unacceptable!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck you, Pubes! I hope that bruise turns into an open wound and then gets gangrene. And then you have to have your shoulder removed, asshole.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Oh for crap's sake, Colorado.

Orel said...

How does Posey not score on that double? Lucky break.

Paul said...

Okay Dodgers offense active now!

Steve Sax said...

AJ really made him work for that first out, however

Cliff Beefpile said...

That was a good 2 inches off the ground, surprised the ump didn't call it a strike.

Orel said...

Crawford has been useless in his return.

Steve Sax said...

I've got a bad feeling about this

Steve Sax said...

Puig with a sweeeeeeeet catch in right

karen said...

Great catch by Puig!

Orel said...

Puig is...Superman!

Steve Sax said...

Quick work for Clayton in the eighth!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Uribe gobbles it up like so much meatloaf! Quick inning for The Kid.

Steve Sax said...

Wait, I need to go buy some apple items. Gotta go.

BJ Killeen said...

Puig's lost his mojo...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Goddammit, BEAT ROMO!

Steve Sax said...

Puig with a lead off single. This gives us a couple of pitches before he is thrown out CS at third base.

Orel said...

That's our Puig!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck yeah! SCORE THEM!

BJ Killeen said...

No, he found it! LOL

Cliff Beefpile said...

Beat Frisco! Beat Frisco! Beat Frisco!

BJ Killeen said...

HanRAM!!!! WE need YOU now!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Oh gawd, it's up to Uribe.

Paul said...

Fly Ball Uribe.

Paul said...

Fuckin Urine.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck you, Uribe.

Paul said...

Come on AJ. You can do this.

Orel said...

AJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJ

Cliff Beefpile said...

AJELLIS! YESSSSSSS!

karen said...

ICU ROMO!! FUCKWAD.

Steve Sax said...

ELLLLIIIIIISssssss!!!!

Paul said...

Lo siento fucker.

BJ Killeen said...

THANK YOU AJ!!

Orel said...

A.J.'s all calm on second, like "ain't no thing."

MR.F said...

AJELLIS!

karen said...

AJ knocks the fuckwad outta the game. How very sweet!

Wicks said...

I'm making a rare appearance to say...OH HELL YEAH!

Wicks said...

Wait we lifted Clayton? WHY?

Orel said...

A.J. knocks Wicks into the GT!

BJ Killeen said...

Hold them, Hold them, Hold them

Paul said...

Yeah. I'd let him try to close it out.

Orel said...

100 pitches, struggled a bit in the 8th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Siddown, "All-Star"!

MR.F said...

Why Jansen and not League?

(ducks)

Paul said...

Always nervous when the ball is hit to Hanley.

Neeebs said...

I leave to get more beer and they finally score. I call that a win-win.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Now the ump tightens up his strikezone?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hit Posey again.

BJ Killeen said...

Well, ya can't hit today, Urine but at least you can still field

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuckin' Ethier.

Steve Sax said...

Hold the ball, Andre

Wicks said...

Come on Dre!

Orel said...

That better not cost us, Andre.

BJ Killeen said...

Please help us, Lord

BJ Killeen said...

Lord Vader, that is...

BJ Killeen said...

Use the force, KJ

Orel said...

Great job, Kenley!

Hideo Nomo said...

WOOOOOHOOOOOHOOOOO

Cliff Beefpile said...

Win. loveLoveLOVE!

Hideo Nomo said...

Second place party!!

MR.F said...

WHOOOO! Victory!

BJ Killeen said...

That's what I like to see!!!

Neeebs said...

Down goes SF.

BJ Killeen said...

2nd place....looking good!

karen said...

Knocking Romo out of the game and sending the gnats to 6.5 back make this win really sweet.

MR.F said...

TBLA offers this:

Paul said...

Party makin.

Alex Cora said...

So glad we did it against romo.

MR.F said...

Henry Schulman ‏@hankschulman 4m

Clubhouse mostly empty, save for Romo with head buried in his locker. #sfgiants

LOLOLOLOLOL

karen said...

@AC...Great catch last night on romo tossing the ICU at HanRam.

Paul said...

They showed it on the stupid channel and then had the balls to say Puig was talking too much.

Alex Cora said...

Thanks Karen. I almost wish HanRam delivered the knock out blow though.

Alex Cora said...

Oh and 200!
