Game 149 Thread: Sept 15 vs. Giants, 1p

Edinson Volquez (9-11, 5.99) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (3-5, 5.82).

We've had some fun. Yes, we've had our ups and downs. Been down that rocky road, but here we are, still around.

Yes, we're Stuck...on Fore, our magic number in the NL West. Last night's truck-runs-us-over-then-stops-reverses-and-drives-over-us-again evening wasn't pleasant. Can Volquez win the battle of the stratospheric ERAs, and salvage a series split over the last-place, mathematically-eliminated Giants?

We've had our doubts, we never took them seriously. And we've had our ins and outs, but that's the way it's supposed to be.

That said, clinching the divisional title so we can start resting everyone (save Matt Kemp, who is scheduled to play the last ten games) wouldn't be such a bad idea, either.

This will go well.

Puig has left hip tightness, explaining why he's out today. Mattingly toying w our emotions, saying it could be a day and it could be two weeks.

(cries)

Gordon in leadoff.

Yeah, I remember how bad 2012 went. Let's relive that experience against the Giants!

Dusty Baker said...

Why can't we just do some sort of Carne Asada Sunday-related contest and let the winner play SS instead of DG?

Mellis doubles. AGon and Uribe strand him.

Mr. Pence? Fred's Brim has a pee cup for you.

SD up 4-0 on Atlanta, 9th

Hunter Pence homering is great. SF needs to sign him to a Rowand-like deal now.

Steve Sax said...

Not good, Nick Buss

Dbacks up 1-0. Atlanta lost.

That was a hard pill to swallow

Hot garbage. Taking the first two in AZ is the only thing that will make me feel better.

Time for Slivovitz!

Any more injuries and they're gonna have to start calling up SoSG softball team players.

Dusty Baker said...

What's up with these pansy-ass weather delays in NFL? Back in my day, they never stopped the damn game for inclimate weather.

Dusty Baker said...

Inclement, Apple, inclement!

spank said...

When did Jeannie Buss get called up?

Dusty Baker said...

Great shot of Mariano Rivera writing a note on the wall in the visitor's bullpen at Fenway Park. It said:

"Last to wear #42. Thanks for everything."

Thank you, Mariano, for your class and for honoring Jackie's legacy the way you have.
