Game 140 Thread: Sept. 6 @ Reds, 4p

bowchickabowwow

Chris Capuano (4-7, 4.41) vs. Mike Leake (11-6, 3.51).

Uh oh, it's Cap, who steps in for Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is out with back stiffness...although nobody's complaining about the extra rest he's getting. Fortunately for the Blue, Leake is 1-2 with a 5.64 ERA lifetime against the Dodgers, who have won four of their last five in Cincinnati.

Momentum is on our side! The thin air of Denver is behind us! The magic number is 12!

Where the party at?

On my way to (undisclosed city) for a bachelor party of a friend. Will try to check in as much as I can. Thankfully, many of the cats also going are big Dodgers fans, so we'll likely be around a TV as much as possible.

Gotta keep pitching.

Dusty Baker said...

Gotta keep hitching.

Kemp news post up top.

Hideo Nomo said...

A Dodgers win and a DBacks loss will reduce the magic number to 10, but a Dodgers win and a DBacks win will officially eliminate the Giants from the division, so...WIN-WIN!

Dusty Baker said...

And, Win for Vin!

Good math, Gnomes. Can't wait for this one tonight.

Hideo Nomo said...

Also, last Collins and Lyons game for 2013, and hopefully forever.

Fred's Brim said...

holy damn

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley bazonked that one

Fred's Brim said...

2-0 good guys

Fred's Brim said...

I love a quick start but I have a feeling Cap will need a few more runs tonight

BJ Killeen said...

wow...these MLB announcers on video SUCK worse than Lyons, and I didn't even think that was possible!

BJ Killeen said...

This don't look good

Steve Sax said...

Wow, just saw the highlight and Hanley crushed the crap out of that ball

Steve Sax said...

Who is hurt?

BJ Killeen said...

Don't know if you've ever eaten Skyline Chili, but it's nasty.

BJ Killeen said...

Cappy is out Sax

Steve Sax said...

Just turned on the tv. I'm assuming it is Cap who is hurt.

Steve Sax said...

I have indeed eaten skyline chili, and it was pretty good

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Capuano has a lot more tattoos.

Oh, that's Peter Moylan.

Steve Sax said...

Also on the Hanley HR highlight: Lyons actually called the HR before it happened, and then again as soon as it left the bat.

Steve Sax said...

Moylan gets Cozart to K.

2-0 through two innings

BJ Killeen said...

Compared to Carney's it stinks...

Steve Sax said...

Great, now Dee got hurt on a bunt single

SO STOP BUNTING DEE

Steve Sax said...

Ball hits Dee in the back of the neck

Steve Sax said...

@BJ: agreed. And Carneys blows doors on Pinks, imho

Steve Sax said...

You gonna steal, Dee?

Steve Sax said...

On-screen graphic notes that the Dodgers' 36-9 record post ASG is better than all these other great teams. Except the other teams in comparison have the full season record, not the 45-game record.

Bad sampling, Fox Prime Ticket

BJ Killeen said...

dang..almost Puig

Steve Sax said...

Phillips bobbles the Puig ball but gets Puig at first. Dee advances to second

Fred's Brim said...

gotta get AG out of his slump

Fred's Brim said...

Fife Dawg in for a few innings hopefully

BJ Killeen said...

Why won't the MLB TV synch with MLB audio? I want to listen to Rick and Charlie, not these Reds clown. if I want to hear primetime, I'd have to pay for Premium TV...MLB gets you coming and going...amazing

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, blue! where was that?!

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Fifer

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Hanley

Hideo Nomo said...

Belated high five to BJ for the hate on Skyline. Shit is naaaaasty.

BJ Killeen said...

Boy, these Reds announcers are so jealous of the Dodgers and the money they can spend. It's really sad to listen to them. Veiled nasty comments.

Steve Sax said...

Horrible CS call on Hanley there. You suck, ump

Not that Uribe would have made that matter anyway

Fred's Brim said...

stinky call there on Hanley

BJ Killeen said...

Thanks, Nomo. I went one time and got the hot dog in the chili...The hot dog was raw, cold, and the chili was one step below dog food. Never again!

Steve Sax said...

That extra gum commercial with the origami swans te dad made for his daughter was really cute.

Awwwwwww

Fred's Brim said...

damn, so close
fuck

Steve Sax said...

Great DP there even though we cede the run

Fred's Brim said...

that would have been a double play too

Fred's Brim said...

great DP

Steve Sax said...

And Hanley makes an error on the next play

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe messed that one up for him

Steve Sax said...

Fife is sucking some serious wind here. We are almost at Edinson Volquez levels of BP.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Fife, finish this off

Hideo Nomo said...

Frustrating inning.

Steve Sax said...

Gonna get some dinner guys. Back soon

Fred's Brim said...

good recovery, Fifer

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Fife!

Fred's Brim said...

unacceptable

Fred's Brim said...

dammit, Fife
stupid walk

BJ Killeen said...

Mild groin strain...sounds painful

Fred's Brim said...

gift strike only delaying the inevitable

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, stupids!

BJ Killeen said...

Can this guy get any lower?

Ryan Braun's Apology Calls to Milwaukee season ticket holders...

Fred's Brim said...

this is giving me agita

Fred's Brim said...

wow, nice DP!

Fred's Brim said...

FUCK

BJ Killeen said...

fuck it. Our bullpen really sucks. Ned is a terrible GM

Fred's Brim said...

wow, nice inning, C-Dub

Fred's Brim said...

wow, nice 2 innings, C-Dub!

Fred's Brim said...

Young swings like he's got a short bat

Fred's Brim said...

Young with the dunker to keep us alive, Leake out after 7 2/3 innings

Fred's Brim said...

first pitch swinging, gotta love it

Fred's Brim said...

this is where we give up 3 runs to put this to bed

Fred's Brim said...

Hamilton steals the base on a low throw that AJ can't handle

Fred's Brim said...

Hamilton seems like what we thought Dee would be

BJ Killeen said...

Sad. Wasting an opp to go 1 up on Atl

Fred's Brim said...

goddamnit blue! how was that not a swing? Votto walks after being down 0-2

2 men on, nobody out

Fred's Brim said...

jesus this is May-like

Fred's Brim said...

Bruce almost made me look like a sad genius

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Paco

Fred's Brim said...

god DAMMIT

Fred's Brim said...

Paco loads the bases without recording an out, Wilson in to piss gas on it

BJ Killeen said...

Officiating is bad tonight. Hope the Dbags lose. We need help tonight. It looks like May.

Fred's Brim said...

Infield in for Ludiwck

Fred's Brim said...

wow
holy
shit
what a double play

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Brian, finish this off

Fred's Brim said...

holy moly, Wilson shakes out of that somehow

Fred's Brim said...

unreal

Fred's Brim said...

now let's go get this! Be patient with Chapman. Let's take a few pitches

Fred's Brim said...

Cesar Izturis is in the game
I always liked him and AC in the middle infield

Fred's Brim said...

FB sad

BJ Killeen said...

BJ sad. Dodgers offense sadder.

Fred's Brim said...

we're gonna need some good pitching tomorrow and sunday. Latos and the Bailey going for the reds the next 2 nights. They have been a pain in our collective ass over the years. I really hope Zach and Clayton bring their Pitcher of the Month stuff

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, that sucked.

Fred's Brim said...

this makes our half-assed game against Colorado on Wednesday that much more annoying. Why don't we load up against a bad team like Colorado?

Fred's Brim said...

laters, yall
Let's get one tomorrow

Steve Sax said...

That was sad.

Steve Sax said...

Well, at least we weren't the Yankees tonight: up 8-3, then lose 12-8.

Giants leading AZ 2-0 in the fifth
