Game 109 Thread: Aug. 3 @ Cubs, 1pm

Samardzija in high school and later as a Cub

Chris Capuano (3-6, 4.54 ERA) vs Jeff Samardzija (6-9, 3.75 ERA)

Dodgers go for a franchise record 13 straight road wins and a shot at taking the four-game series in this, their third game of the stand at the Friendly Confines. The last team in the franchise to have won 12 road games in a row was called the Brooklyn Robins in 1924.
Here's hoping the team doesn't lay an egg today. Signs look good, as Cap has feathered his nest with a 7-0 and 1.55 ERA in his last nine starts against the Cubs. And, really, who hasn't?

"Samarsda" - Kevin Kennedy on DodgerTalk yesterday.

Dusty Baker said...

Interesting facts re: the last game in the Brooklyn Robins 12-game road win streak:

Time of game: One hour, 20 minutes.

Attendance: 3,500

Both pitchers (Doak and Cooney) went nine innings.

There was only a home plate and 1B umpire.

Robins had two guys named Zack in the starting lineup.

Gotta keep pitching. Keep it going, Cap!

Steve Sax said...

Gotta keep FB saying "gotta keep pitching"!

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, I thought he said "Gotta keep bitching." I was like, that won't be a problem.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gotta keep pissing. Drank too much.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nomo

I have that covered, too.

Dusty Baker said...

I am so absolutely stoked for this game. Can't start soon enough.

Dusty Baker said...

Wind blowing in today, per David V.

Make this shit start already!

Hideo Nomo said...

Fun stat from Jon W.: If the Dodgers win today, they'll have gone 30-42, then 30-7.

Dusty Baker said...

Per Dad, "Legend: if your a baseball player you NEVER look at the horses B___s on the way to Wrigley or u lose!"

Hideo Nomo said...

I would like to take this time to thank FOX for sparing us from Collins and Lyons today.

Hideo Nomo said...

Shitty steal attempt.

Dre with warning track power

Just saw Dustys comment re winds blowing in. Guess the winds knocked down Dres would-be blast, and halted Crawfords would-be SB

Hideo Nomo said...

Whole lotta nothing in the first, but they're making contact. (Hanley aside.)

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Where are we in Cap's pattern? Is today his 5ER day?

Hideo Nomo said...

Tomorrow is the long-awaited Barney-Fife matchup.

BJ Killeen said...

Hey Fox fuckheads, there's a game going on in case you didn't notice. It's not INTEVIEW TIME!

Steve Sax said...

0-0 through 1.5.

I'm stuck at swim class so you guys need to update me!

Steve Sax said...

(Yes, my backstroke needs work)

Steve Sax said...

@BJ: someone stole your capital R

Hideo Nomo said...

If they're going to interview David DeJesus this long, they could at least put up a photo of his wife.

Steve Sax said...

4Ks for Samardzjia through two innings

Steve Sax said...

@Gnomes: holy smokes on that picture.

At least I feel better that she is looking at her boobs, too.

Dusty Baker said...

Why is Puig bunting? At Wrigley?

BJ Killeen said...

@Sax: I make typos when I'm mad.

Dusty Baker said...

I make martinis when I'm mad.

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

did anybody else notice Puig's Al Sharpton medallion yesterday? Eric B would be jealous

Steve Sax said...

1-0 through 4.5. Cap's pitch count so far is good

Steve Sax said...

@BJ: 388 on Candy Crush

Steve Sax said...

Anyone going to the soccer games today?

Hideo Nomo said...

Are they on TV at all?

BJ Killeen said...

@Sax: 383. Was stuck on 382 until an hour ago!

FedEx with a double, Skip makes it to third, held by Eli

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Monday still saying "Samarzda"

BJ Killeen said...

@Sax: just hit 384...it's ugly

BJ Killeen said...

Judging by the frequency of the commercials, men who watch baseball have E.D.

BJ Killeen said...

Didn't mean to write that twice. Phone choked. Lol

Steve Sax said...

@BJ: 382 killed me as well. I lost a week on that one

BJ Killeen said...

I love Puig. He just doesn't give up

BJ Killeen said...

Didn't need to hear that Sax

Spank said...

League. shit.

Spank said...

League didn't give it up. Impressive.

BJ Killeen said...

Hey, does anyone know if Fox Sports is starting a new network?!

Hideo Nomo said...

HOW DARE GUERRIER BE EFFECTIVE!

Hideo Nomo said...

Hadn't heard, BJ.

Spank said...

Me no sabe,BJ.

Steve Sax said...

Paco baby!

Steve Sax said...

@BJ re FS1: I think I read directv, dish, and time Warner cable aren't carrying fox sports 1, with two weeks to go until launch. Good luck, guys

BJ Killeen said...

TWC doesn't carry anyone, and now no CBS or kcal. Glad we have Uverse

BJ Killeen said...

EK giving Donnie the MVP? What a blow job. Makes me miss Lyons.

Steve Sax said...

Lyons wants to take Donnie's pants off

BJ Killeen said...

Thank ewe!

Fred's Brim said...

WOOOP!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Cap! Attaboy, Kenley!

Spank said...

Dusty Baker said...

I am too drunk to do a PGT. And I don't have a computer with me here at the cantina.

Steve Sax said...

Shit, this does not speak well for this PGT.

Dbacks, rays, giants, and Red Sox all tied at 1.

MR.F said...

Rockies lose, D-Bags lose, Vagiants lose. San Diego down 2-0.

MR.F said...

We now lead the NL West in +/-. We're at +13 while the D-Bags are at +12!

Steve Sax said...

All other teams in the NL West lost!

Paul said...

Why don't you slackers not have a blog and don't blog about that blog!

Dusty Baker said...

I was able to pull it together somewhat and do a PGT!
