Game 141 Thread: Sept. 7 @ Reds, 10a

This is Cat Latos. Do not be lulled by his cuteness. His owner must be stopped.


Zack Greinke (14-3, 2.78) vs. Mat Latos (14-5, 2.98)

Whoa. Early game threw us for a loop. We haven't even had time to put up a PGT for last night's game, and we're usually so punctual with those.

It would be nice to get back to reducing the magic number on our own today, after dropping the last two games. The Giants did give us a small hand last night, reducing the magic number to 11 by nearly perfecto-ing the DBacks. We appreciate the charity, but let's do this ourselves.

What we really need is for the offense to get purring again. Latos is no pussy, so it's going to be tough.

I am really hung over this morning

Hideo Nomo said...

I only have binge-watching of Breaking Bad to blame for my lack of attention to the blog. Just finished the 10th ep of season 4.

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah that Michael Young sure is clutch.

Hideo Nomo said...

PUUUUUUIIIIIIIIIG.

We're winning!

We're losing!

We're winning again! 3-2

I assume I am highlight-less (on mobile) because of Fox

Steve Sax said...

I would love to see that Puig HR highlight...

alas

Skip Schumaker ends the top of the third with a feline drive out

Steve Sax said...

Is Young really batting .417 with the dodgers?!

BJ Killeen said...

I can't wait to read the PGT for this game next Wednesday! :-)

Traveling today by car. Glad I can listen as I drive through the heartland of America - Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, anyway.

Steve Sax said...

Votto is a tough AB

Steve Sax said...

@BJ: don't text and drive, but where are you traveling to/from? I've done that drive many a time

Steve Sax said...

Greinke snag strands the runner at second. Nice.

3-2 through 3

Steve Sax said...

3-2 LA through 4.5

Steve Sax said...

Skipster needs a bit more power on his stroke

Steve Sax said...

Those Quicken Loans people look much, much too happy. Maybe they are prisoners.

Steve Sax said...

Beautiful day there in Cincy

Hideo Nomo said...

This game is tighter than Uribe's sweatpants.

Steve Sax said...

Greinke gets Latos for his sixth K

Steve Sax said...

@Nomo: those aren't sweatpants. It's a pair of sleeping bags.

Steve Sax said...

One-out hit for Choo. No, Fox, that is not the leadoff hitter

Steve Sax said...

I remember Cesar Izturis!

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, Izturis sneaks one through so there are men at the corners

Give me a DP here

Steve Sax said...

Here's Votto, 2-for-2 today

Hideo Nomo said...

Zack fading?

Hideo Nomo said...

Sweatpants or sleeping bags, they still look like leggings on him.

Hideo Nomo said...

Offense appears to be done for the day, so gotta keep pitching.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, it's 3-3

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

My friend has 2 tix for the cult at the Wiltern tonight. $50 each. Me & mrs DBT will be there. If interested shoot me email rbj0407 @ gmail.

Hideo Nomo said...

Barf barf barf. This feels like a walk-off loss.

Steve Sax said...

Why was Hairston tossed?

Steve Sax said...

DBT sells sanctuary! Or at least, tickets.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit

Steve Sax said...

4-3 loss in the tenth. Boo.

Hideo Nomo said...

I hate being right.

Hideo Nomo said...

For those in dire need of PGTs, please understand our lack of desire to relive this shit.

Fred's Brim said...

Blah

Steve Sax said...

Arizona wins 2-1. Magic number holds at 11.

Hideo Nomo said...

Magic number has felt a little tragic lately.

Steve Sax said...

PGTs will go up tomorrow morning. I've got my Bloody Mary mix ready.
