Game 153 Thread: Sept. 19 @ D'backs, 12:30p

"After we win today, I want a nice orderly celebration just like this."

Ricky Nolasco (13-10, 3.35) vs. Wade Miley (10-10, 3.70).

Magic number's still at two. At least Nolasco should be rested after getting shelled — nay, bazookaed — in his last start, in which he threw 50 pitches in giving up seven runs to the Giants over 1 1/3 innings.

So it's either a win and a happy flight to San Diego, or start the regulars against the Padres and hope the Rockies give the Snakes a hard time. I say we go for the win.

So I see Hanley is getting one less day of rest.

Good.

Fuck the Dbags.

spank said...

just win for fucks sake.

Steve Sax said...

Miley Cyrus had two outs but walked SVS, and then gets AJellis to fly out.

Remember when AJ Ellis wasn't an out machine?

Steve Sax said...

Roof is closed as it's 102 degrees outside

Cliff Beefpile said...

Why is Gonzalez out? Stop dicking with the line-up, Donnie! Why waste an opportunity to do in one game would otherwise take two!?!? FUCK! It's too early in the day to be this pissed at shitty managerial decisions.

Steve Sax said...

Hanley GRAND SLAM!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...


HanMUTHAFUCKINRam! BOOM!

Steve Sax said...

whoops, got too excited there. I forgot Puig was forced out at Second.

3-0 Dodgers. BOOM

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Not quite a Grand Slam.

Puig never made it to second base

Steve Sax said...

Kemp with a base hit

Lets go Dodgers

Cliff Beefpile said...

3-0, Sax...Puig got caught in no man's land there on Hairston's single. It was a weird bloop single.

Steve Sax said...

Neeebs finds a legal technicality in my argument.

He's right.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

We do or die in post-season as Hanley goes.

He elevates everyone's game when he is on.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

I caught the MLB teaser preview video of Puig's confusion.

He was five feet from first base when the ball dropped.

With his speed, he could have gone 1/3 away from the bag, as pitcher would have had to cover first base.

Oh well. He still needs to work on his head.

Cliff Beefpile said...

What's with these new mittens the players are wearing?

Steve Sax said...

3-0 Dodgers, mid-3

Steve Sax said...

@Cliff: it's cold in Phoenix in September, especially when the roof is closed

Paul said...

*streaks under his suit*

Neeebs (The Original) said...

So if the Dodgers win today, it's no longer, Tonight, tonight, tonight. Rather, it's Afternoon Delight?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Throw at Goldschmidt's head!

Cliff Beefpile said...

My skyrockets are in flight, I'll tell ya that much. I don't know what that means, but it sounds euphemistic.

Paul said...

Wait we are winning?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, I was just gonna say maybe the Dodgers luck was changing, since Goldschmidt's double couldn't bring in both runs. Clearly, we're fucked...again.

Paul said...

Oh wait nevemind fuck.

Paul said...

Well these are the mighty diamondbacks.

Steve Sax said...

Goddammit we are losing 4-3

Steve Sax said...

Wade Miley with a two-out double. It's now 6-3. Criminy Nolasco, what the fuck

Paul said...

This is embarrassing.

Cliff Beefpile said...

So when do you start knocking guys down exactly?

Steve Sax said...

Snakes have batted around

Cliff Beefpile said...

Those are some defeated-looking faces in the dugout.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well that was a little slice of hell.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

I cant listen anymore. I'm checking out.

Steve Sax said...

AJellis gets his first hit of the series, a double

Steve Sax said...

AJ is now 1-for-10 in the series

Paul said...

Checkout but you can never leave.

Fred's Brim said...

how are we such dogshit right now?
were we always this bad but they had us fooled?

Fred's Brim said...

this is making me really upset

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, if they're gonna do anything in the playoffs they're gonna have to close teams out...and this had better not be an indicator of how that's gonna go.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That's more like it. Should have been a fast ball though, Nolasco.

BJ Killeen said...

Can't watch. In a meeting. But on the verge of tears.

Paul said...

So this team has gone from being on pace to be the worst Dodger team to one of the best teams of all time and back to a team who can't beat anyone. Strange. This might be the season that breaks me into all sorts of angry. It feels like 10 years ago that I was at spring training.

Paul said...

Nice at bat Van Sizzle!

Paul said...

Drive the ball AJ.

Paul said...

3-1. Come on AJ.

Paul said...

Got something cooking. Don't fuck it up with a cute bunt.

Paul said...

Jerry has been awful this year. Hope he walks.

spank said...

just win for fucks sake.

Paul said...

Fuckin Hanley came to play.

Paul said...

Angry swing. I love it.

spank said...

I heart HanRam

BJ Killeen said...

Oh my, oh my. I want to scream but can't!!!!!!!!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

They made their comeback while I was watching my fantasy football show...going back to that for good luck.

Paul said...

Start Tony Banks!

spank said...

Tony Banks?

Tonight Tonight Tonight oh ohhhhhh

Paul said...

Well.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I don't know about Banks, but I've got Cleveland Gary in my flex spot.

Paul said...

I heart Flipper Anderson.

spank said...

I'll trade Michael Vick for Greg Bell.

Paul said...

To the 8th! Hey Dodgers, to quote Zack De La Rocha...Wake up!!!!!

QuadSevens said...

Ellis going deep! Holy smokes!

Paul said...

Nice.

QuadSevens said...

Dusty Baker said...

Somewhere over the continental US, Vinny!

Paul said...

Here we go.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Everybody got their party hats on?

Paul said...

2009 feels like a lifetime ago. Come on boys.

Dusty Baker said...

Hanley hurting that much? Radio said he really hoofed it down the line.

Dusty Baker said...

Of course Steiner also called Hanley's hit a 595 foot home run to Glendale, (CA).

Paul said...

Fuck yeah.

Hanley is running fast. It is after he stops where he doesn't look right.

Steve Sax said...

One out.

Paul said...

Come on!

Steve Sax said...

@paul: then Hanley should just run through Wallace's signs each time

Dusty Baker said...

Got it. Thx Paul.

Damn Jim Joyce. Ump plot to keep us from winning or what?

Steve Sax said...

Ump goes ouch

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...
