Game 108 Thread: Aug. 2 @ Cubs, 1pm


Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-3, 3.14) vs. Travis Wood (7-7, 2.79)

Late lunch baseball! Heck, just blow off the rest of the day and take in the game. (Or stay at your desk and look busy while listening to the game, like I plan to do.)

Did you know Travis Wood was an All-Star this year? I sure didn't. You know who should have been an All-Star (besides Puig)? Hyun-Jin Ryu. He's given the Dodgers a quality start in 15 out of 20 outings. And his ERA is Pi. That's just awesome.

I think I'll have pie with my late lunch.

What's this?


Punto instead of Hanley?* I may have just lost my appetite.

Yes, I know it's just a scheduled day off.

This could be a rough one. Night game- red ey travel-night game- day game. That is why last night's was a big win. Still it is the Cubs.

Hideo Nomo said...

But it's also Punto.

Paul said...

The resistible force vs the movable object.

rbnlaw said...

MLB hates the Dodgers. That is obviously.

Also, last night Charley and Rick were talking about the Ramirez/Mellis combo and their 80% win record when they start together. No sooner had the words left Charley's mouth when Mellis can't catch the toss for out #3, extending the inning.

Luckily, as it has been said, it is the Cubs. No harm done.

Orel said...

Did Hanley just call Uribe a monkey on Twitter?

Paul said...

Well...yeah. Whatever brings the team together.

Hideo Nomo said...

It's a semi-running joke.

Orel said...

Hanley and Uribe are bro-ing out so hard.

BJ Killeen said...

Uribe/Ramirez bout TK. I have so much work to do today. Am I going to do it? No, I'm going to watch (well, maybe I'll do some afterward).

BJ Killeen said...

Man is Lyons a gomer

Jason said...

Is it beer'o'clock yet?

Hideo Nomo said...

So long, productivity!

Hideo Nomo said...

Puig single scores SlowGon!

BJ Killeen said...

SlowGon. He hehe

Jason said...

Steiner sounds like he might be drinking.

Hideo Nomo said...

Yes..."might be."

Hideo Nomo said...

Dangit, Dre.

Jason said...

There are at least 3 names in the Cubs in the starting lineups that I'm pretty sure were just picked at random from The Great Gatsby.

Hideo Nomo said...

Ruh-roh.

QuadSevens said...

"Watching" from my desk.

Orel said...

Man on Wire

rbnlaw said...

Watching through Gameday is an exercise in patience. . .or Zen.

Both?

SlowGon? A SlowGon fizz?

Hideo Nomo said...

SlowGon poetry.

Jason said...

Lyons talking quite a bit about the awesomeness that is booze in the clubhouse for road games. He ends his soliloquy by calling Harry Carry an alcoholic.

I have no point here other than Lyons is making me want a beer even more than I did 45 minutes ago.

Hideo Nomo said...

Crapadoo.

BJ Killeen said...

Double double. Makes me want in n out

rbnlaw said...

What the fuck just happened?

Spank said...

Davey Lopes is an idiot.

Jason said...

Hideo Nomo said...

BJ Killeen said...

Damn. But he has 79 pitches, bitches!

Hideo Nomo said...

BJ Killeen said...

Overcast in the valley today. Not baseball related but nice and cool

rbnlaw said...

Me and Spank in on a GT?

7th seal broken. Frogs to rain from above.

Hideo Nomo said...

Whoa. Mellis tossed?

Hideo Nomo said...

Donnie too.

BJ Killeen said...

The umpires are dicks

rbnlaw said...

Donnie out? Again, what the fuck is going on?

BJ Killeen said...

Skippy or Hanley?

Hideo Nomo said...

Not digging Ryu being out on the basepaths this long.

BJ Killeen said...

At least Donnie is fighting instead of eating it

BJ Killeen said...

So not pretty. But me likely the results

Hideo Nomo said...

Yay! Ryu's not on the basepaths anymore. In a good way!

Spank said...

Wood leaves the game limp.



QuadSevens said...

Ha!

Steve Sax said...

Hey guys! 5-1 B4

rbnlaw said...

Kershaw wondering what he has to do to get this kind of run support.

rbnlaw said...

Again, Sax speaks to soon.

Types?

Hideo Nomo said...

Two hours later, Top 5.

Hideo Nomo said...

Charley and Rick didn't speak for over 20 seconds. Thought the feed died.

BJ Killeen said...

Hanley and Uribe are too funny

BJ Killeen said...

Looonnnnng game

Hideo Nomo said...

The gorilla jokes continue.

Steve Sax said...
