Game 116 Thread: August 10 vs. Rays, 1p

Zack Greinke (9-3, 3.40) vs. Fausto Carmona Roberto Hernandez (6-11, 4.75)

It's Hideo Nomo Bobblehead Day! The Tornado himself will be on hand to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. That makes three Nomos that will be in the Yard: Real Nomo, BobbleNomo, and yours truly. (Find me on the Field Level and say hi!)

And after last night's astonishing comeback walk-off victory, it's pretty clear the Dodgers don't wanna lose no' mo' either.

Dodgers run this ravine , run this town, run the west. Keep grinding.

Dusty Baker said...

Gotta keep pitching.

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like we're putting our A team out there today.

Still no HanRam, but I'm liking the signs that he's going to be ok.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB me too, RE HanRamirez

And the pitching, but that's a given

Neeebs said...

No PGT 114 and 115.

I need my fix.

Hideo Nomo said...

BEEYOOTEEFUL day at the Ravine!

Dusty Baker said...

RT @DodgerMeltdown: The only negative to being a @Dodgers fan is that there are only 16 #SFGiants "fans" left to rub it in their faces. #originalbandwagon

BJ Killeen said...

Let's send these Rays back to Florida with their stingers between their legs

Spank said...

@ James Loney

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Spank said...

One team left in the 2013 SoSG Fantasy Football League. Hit me up if you want in, ya heard.

Spank said...

Punto with the unnecessary head first slide at first.

Hideo Nomo said...

NOOOOOOOOOOMOOOOOOOOOO!

Spank said...

A-GONE!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Eh? Gone!

Hideo Nomo said...

AAAAAAAAAGOOOOOOOOOOONNNN!!

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus, just watched the Nomo tribute that was shown at the stadium...crying me eyes out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Loney gets zero reaction. (But massive cheers on the flyout.)

Hideo Nomo said...

@Dusty: I TOLD YOU. Then they threw in Hiro and I lost it.

Hideo Nomo said...

My view has me lined up right behind Uribe when he made that throw. So pretty.

Dusty Baker said...

I know this is gonna bring up some disagreement, but I'm really feelin Skip Schumaker and would like to see him worked into the lineup as much as possible. He's the new Jamie Carroll.

Hideo Nomo said...

And just like that, Skip singles.

Hideo Nomo said...

And then he's caught stealing.

Dusty Baker said...

It was a missed sign.

Hideo Nomo said...

Yes, the sign was, "Don't steal, Skip!"

Spank said...

Rays pitching to Greinke as if he's Ty Cobb.

Spank said...

Walked him.

Spank said...

Crawdude with a double. We gots something brewing.

Spank said...

Pinche Punto!! Rbi single.

4-0 LA

Dusty Baker said...

@Nomo

No, was missed sign. Was supposed to be hit and run play.

Spank said...

@ James Loney

Get the fuck out of LA,you bum!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Hideo Nomo said...

That single by Uribe was smoked, like the sausage he ate before the at-bat.

Hideo Nomo said...

@Dusty: I know, I know. I was just funnin'.

Spank said...

rancho time

Spank said...

fuck that chin music. crowd the plate mofo

Dusty Baker said...

Hidden ball trick works on Uribe. SMH

Steve Sax said...

Just got back to LA! Up 5-0, keep it rolling Zack and crew

Dusty Baker said...

I was about to bitch about the game being slowed by a meeting on the mound, then realized it was our guys doing the meeting.

Steve Sax said...

No highlights available on MLB at bat app

Boooooooooooo

Dusty Baker said...

Headline:

"Royals place Cain on DL and designate Bueno"

I'd love to be a Royals blogger so I could write the obvious headline, "No Bueno".

Dusty Baker said...

Fausto Carmona was a much cooler name. And he was a better pitcher then.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: why don't you go start a royals blog and then go post that news on that blog

Steve Sax said...

(Make sure your royals blog also includes pictures of William and Kate's kid!)

Dusty Baker said...

I would call it Royal With Cheese.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

Escobar tossed? No? Wow. I remember when Manny would sort of take his glove off a little surly and he'd get run. Escobar just threw half his uniform right in from of ump and he stays in the game.

Dusty Baker said...

Dodgers on 1st and 2nd with no outs.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, it was a pretty shitty strike call. Likely a make-up call.

Dusty Baker said...

Well that sucked ass. DP leaves Uribe at 3rd. Let's hope he knows where the ball is.

Dusty Baker said...

It was a terrible strike call, to be sure.

Dusty Baker said...

Wr go to the 7th. Nothing out of that.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I wanna see a Molina v. Gonzales foot race

Dusty Baker said...

110 pitches for Zack.

Dusty Baker said...

Frisco up 3-1 over Balt in the 7th. Come on, you Os!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

110 pitches is good days work. Call it a day Zack

Spank said...

good job,Greinkster.

Dusty Baker said...

I went about 110 minutes without a beer just now.

Let's remedy that.

Dusty Baker said...

Hit me with a win on the sidebar from last night, Sax.

Spank said...

i've been 13+ hours without a beer.

#BongDay

Dusty Baker said...

Chris Withrow about to be up in dis bish. Man that guy is scary looking.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow. Davis crushed that homerun up in SF. Here's hoping the O's win the Black and Orange Bowl.

Dusty Baker said...

That was a monster HR. Os get one back still down 3-2.

Dusty Baker said...

Time for Puig to exhibit some power.

Steve Sax said...

In a taxi right now (customs was a bitch). Can someone describe to me the Uribe hidden ball thing? Since Fox is giving me zero fucking highlights?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Gonzalez steals a base. The end is nigh!

Steve Sax said...

Gameday must be broken, it says A-Gon stole a base

Steve Sax said...

Ramos is scared of the Puig. IBB

Steve Sax said...

Monday and Steiner are laughing that a XBH would see if ping can outrun Gonzalez for home

Oh well, Ethier blows it

Steve Sax said...

One pitch one out for withrow

Steve Sax said...

Orioles with a lead off man on first, T9

Steve Sax said...

Romo pitching for the giants

Steve Sax said...

Nice job withrow!

Steve Sax said...

Giants win.

Steve Sax said...

Re: giants win:

Boooooooooooooooo

Spank said...

Dusty's new BFF is 4-4 today.

Steve Sax said...

Skip makes Dusty blush. 4-for-4

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Loney was around pitcher's mound (wher he usually grounded balls to end innings when he was a Dodger), holding the ball. Uribe was at third with his head down. Loney threw to Longoria while Uribe's head was down, so Uribe didn't know Eva had the ball. Then Uribe stupidly stepped off the bag and Eva tagged him out.

Later in the game, when Uribe was at 3B again, he made a joke to Longoria and the two of them plus the 3B ump all had a good laugh.

Steve Sax said...

Vamos, Ramos!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: thanks.

Are they all going out for double doubles after the game?

Dusty Baker said...

I wouldn't hate a little geico here.

Dusty Baker said...

PGT UP Whaaaat?

Spank said...

win
