Game 120 Thread: August 14 vs. Mets, 7p

l to r: Cap, Gee

Chris Capuano (4-6, 4.50) vs. Dillon Gee (8-8, 3.82)

Another wacky stat from this wacky season: Since returning from the DL on June 19th, Capuano has given up either 5 or 0 earned runs in nine starts. Here's the pattern: 0,0,5,5,0,5,0,0,5. I'm hoping tonight is a 0 ER start, but if you look at it in sets of three, that means another 5 ER start tonight.

Thankfully, the offense is getting a boost that could overcome a 5 ER start from Cap, in the form of Hanley Ramirez. HanRam will make his first start since jamming his shoulder in Chicago on August 4th. Hanley is .500 with a home run against Gee in the past.*

A win tonight means a sweep, a 6-0 homestand, an 8-game winning streak, and a ton of momentum heading into yet another East Coast swing.

Dodgers tickets

*Uh, small sample size alert: That's in 2 AB.

For a second there I thought that 0055055 sequence was another SOSG puzzle I wasn't going to be able to figure out!

BJ Killeen said...

BTW, did SOSG win that best of LA blog thing??

Top of 13, AZ and B still tied at 4. Now the sun is fucking up the field.

BJ Killeen said...

Im just going to keep leaving posts till someone shows up. This is the problem with a Dodgers fan who is on East Coast time! LOL

Hideo Nomo said...

BJ, we find out August 28. I believe DelinO is repping us at the award ceremony.

BJ Killeen said...

Thanks nomo. Dirtbags just won..booo

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Going with Fed-Equis tonight.

Is he Capo's personal receiver now? Has that been established somewhere?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

You could've used this image for the GT.

Boyz II Men! Love it!

Fred's Brim said...

Baltimore was walked off in all three of those games. They blew 9th inning leads today and yesterday and eventually lost both in extras. On Monday, they gave up 5 runs in the last three innings to lose 7-6

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Orioles suck ass!

BJ Killeen said...

Not gonna lie, pretty sure I'll be in dreamland before the 2nd inning.

Hideo Nomo said...

The sleepies are another reason for the lack of PGTs. At least from me.

Fred's Brim said...

what's the official word on Dre's calf?

Fred's Brim said...

Carl nearly beat that out

Fred's Brim said...

quick inning for the good guys

Fred's Brim said...

wow what a throw

Fred's Brim said...

fuck

Fred's Brim said...

So Cap won't be throwing a 0 today

Fred's Brim said...

finish this off, Cap

Fred's Brim said...

Cap pitches around Buck to face Gee, Mets on first and second

Fred's Brim said...

cripes, figure it out, Cap!

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh, Cap is 1 away from 5 after a 3-R homer by Byrd

Hideo Nomo said...

hateHateHATE

Fred's Brim said...

blah

Fred's Brim said...

I don't think I can stay up for this one. Gnomes, you gotta get us back in this

Hideo Nomo said...

This was the last word we got on Ethier's calf.

Hideo Nomo said...

In all seriousness, he could pinch hit tonight and be back in the lineup Friday.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn didn't we just go on a Least Coast swing?

Dusty Baker said...

Son of a bunch of dirty words. Why did it have to be Capuano?

Dusty Baker said...

This may be on FB for not admonishing us "Gotta keep pitching."

Hideo Nomo said...

To be fair to Fred Breezy, he didn't last night either. Only Spank's "Gotta keep itching."

Hideo Nomo said...

Four hits, zero runs. Tough to do.

Dusty Baker said...

So we can say with full scientific evidence that if anyone types the letters "Gotta keep itching" then we win.

Hideo Nomo said...

We're kind of alive!

Dusty Baker said...

We're not dead yet.

Paul said...

Old man alert.

Paul said...

Nice start.

Paul said...

Groin shot.

Dusty Baker said...

Nutshot Part II

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT

Paul said...

Let us see some old school Dre.

Paul said...

Fuck yeah!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I hadn't forgotten about you, Dre!

Dusty Baker said...

Let us Dre.

QuadSevens said...

These guys put on a good show huh?

Paul said...

Finish them!!

Paul said...

Damn.

QuadSevens said...

Extra innings here we come!

Dusty Baker said...

Puig has had a shit-ass series.

Dusty Baker said...

Extra beer, here I come!

Hideo Nomo said...

I had fallen asleep on the couch. My eyes opened and Dre hit it. Amazing.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck. Still Marmol. Don't want to feel nervous.

Paul said...

Throw strikes.

Paul said...

Walk it off boys.

Paul said...

Easy guys.

Paul said...

If Marmol hits a homerun I'm giving Nomo 100 bucks.

Dusty Baker said...

What the FUCK are AGon and Hanley doing first-ball swinging in that inning? Jesus christ, what a stupidly played (or coached?) inning. Charlie Marble gave one a ride and looked better than those other boys.

Paul said...

Wow that freaked me out a bit.

Paul said...

Can we really ask any more of Marmol?

Dusty Baker said...

You were a few feet from owing Nomo a hunny, Paul.

Paul said...

Good job Carlos

Paul said...

Paco killed me.

Paul said...

Hope Murphy doesn't straighten those out.

Hideo Nomo said...

I really needed that hundred bucks.

Paul said...

Nice at bat Ellis.

Paul said...

Here comes the bunt.

Paul said...

AJ is clutch. Lets win this thing and go home.

Hideo Nomo said...

AJ wants that pitch back.

Hideo Nomo said...

Argh.

Paul said...

Uribe is not so clutch. But get a hit Juan.

Paul said...

Damn!

Dusty Baker said...

Great swat from Uribe. Should have been the game winner.

Hideo Nomo said...

An inch or two in any direction and that was the game winner.

Dusty Baker said...

Can...barely...keep my....eyes open.

Hideo Nomo said...

I'd say DAMMIT, except I read Dusty's comment and STILL posted pretty much the same thing. I is tired.

Paul said...

Where did my beer go?

Dusty Baker said...

Do your job, Shredder!

Paul said...

We make party!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Unbelievable. Just god damned unbelievable.

Dusty, out.

Hopefully a PGT will magically write itself.

Steve Sax said...

Are

You

Fucking

Kidding

Me

Re-donk-u-less

Hideo Nomo said...

HYMFPGTUP!

Spank said...
