NLCS Game 4 Thread: Oct. 15 vs. Cards, 5p


Ricky Nolasco (0-0, -.--) vs. Lance Lynn (1-0, 0.00)

Well, Ricky, after you lost that number, you finally get the call. You probably have a lot on your mind right now. Your first playoff game ever. It's in front of your hometown crowd. It's a pivotal Game 4. You haven't pitched since the first Bush was in office. No pressure!

The team is loose and energized. Hanley and Ethier are back in the lineup again. Let's get this one tonight and hand Greinke a 2-2 series tomorrow!

We just couldn't bear it if you lost.

It is hot here at the stadium. I wonder if there will be shadows and I wonder if they will effect the game and how....

Hideo Nomo said...

I don't like how those shadows are celebrating.

Orel said...

It's like they're showing up the daylight.

Paul said...

Tommy is wearing Padres colors. I'll take that as a big game for A Gon.

Hideo Nomo said...

Am I crazy, or does Mike Napoli's beard make Brian Wilson's look sensible?

Hideo Nomo said...

WHERE ERR'BODY AT?

Steve Sax said...

Tigers just lost 1-0. We know how that feels.

Paul said...

Some guy who claims to be a Son of Steve Garvey is next to me.

Hideo Nomo said...

Watch your ass.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is this shit on? Just checking

Hideo Nomo said...

THIS SHIT IS ONCE AGAIN IRREFUTABLY ON.

Fred's Brim said...

gotta keep pitching

Fred's Brim said...

gonna lay low again tonight

good luck, everyone

Steve Sax said...

One pitch, one out for Nolasco. Well done there.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Alright now, that's I'm talking about.

Let's get it on!!!

Steve Sax said...

I can get TV here in prison! I only had to trade 300 cigarettes for the privilege!

BJ Killeen said...

Let's give these classless bastards something to cry about

Steve Sax said...

Two pitches, two outs! Beltran fouls out

Steve Sax said...

Sorry, I lost my pitch count: 6 pitches for Nolasco in the first inning. Way to go, Ricky!

BJ Killeen said...

Everybody hits!!

Steve Sax said...

(It was two pitches per batter)

BJ Killeen said...

That's grit.

Steve Sax said...

Nice job Ricky in the second, getting Freese to chase high cheese for the third out

Steve Sax said...

@Paul 3:12p: "affect", I think

Steve Sax said...

Puig with a one-out walk. Ethier goes to second

Steve Sax said...

Puig with a one-out walk. Ethier goes to second

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Uribe, what the hell man. Spend the money to buy a good bat

Steve Sax said...

All up to you, AJellis

Steve Sax said...

Way to make him work, AJ Ellis.

I know Lance Lynn was fine to walk Ellis, to get to Nolasco, but still.

Steve Sax said...

I'm kind of surprised Mattingly didn't pull Nolasco here for a Michael Young PH

QuadSevens said...

Rancho for Nolasco.

QuadSevens said...

Didn't take the bat off his shoulder.

Paul said...

This is the NLCS right?

Steve Sax said...

Pat Sajak, searching on his iphone for mobile porn during the break

Hideo Nomo said...

Shit.

Hideo Nomo said...

Game over.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck. He's reverting to recent Ricky.

Hollandsworth said...

I had a bad feeling about this game.

Steve Sax said...

We can still do this. It's Lance fucking Lynn. Let's go, Dodgers!

Paul said...

We know we needed to score runs this game. Wake up bats!

Paul said...

How come every Cardinal fan has blonde or white hair?

Hideo Nomo said...

White people tend to have those hair colors.

Hollandsworth said...

That inning royally blew.

Hideo Nomo said...

Didn't do anything until the fourth yesterday too.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Can't watch. Trying to distract myself by watching the Kings who are laying a huge turd in Tampa Bay.

Paul said...

@Nomo

Ohhhhh. White people.... I must talk to one. Ask why they hate fun and like bunts.

Cliff Beefpile said...

10/15 is the anniversary of Gibson's homerun, and exactly one year later Wayne Gretzky became the NHL's all-time leading scorer.

spank said...

come on Puig! shove it down the Cardinals throaTS!

spank said...

FULL COUNT

QuadSevens said...

Attaboy Puig!!

Steve Sax said...

Puig gets us on the board!

Steve Sax said...

Great AB by Puig there btw

spank said...

let's go Urine!

Steve Sax said...

Juan, you're batting .143. Let's try to be a little more patient out there, shall we?

spank said...

yes

Steve Sax said...

AJ! Nicely done dude

3-2

spank said...

Too much celebrating there,Puig. No hand clapping allowed in baseball.

Steve Sax said...

what the fuck, skip

spank said...

leadoff hitter on. more runs please

spank said...

where the fuck is everybody? this is the playoffs! i thought we would be more excited.

spank said...

fucking Mehllis.

spank said...

Swing you fucker!

spank said...

Well that was a waste.

Paul said...

I'm nervous.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I can't watch, my blood pressure can't take it.

spank said...

DOUBLE PLAY!

Paul said...

Fuckers! Lets do this!!!

spank said...

jesus christ fuck!

Cliff Beefpile said...

FUCK! Right when I turn it on a GIDP by Uribe. OK, I'm staying away. Nice take-out slide by Puig though.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Who the hell is Shane Robinson?

Hollandsworth said...

For fuck's sake.

BJ Killeen said...

I guess SVS has a communicable disease

Hollandsworth said...

Unbelievable.

Hollandsworth said...

Unbelievable.

spank said...

pinche punto

BJ Killeen said...

Crap time 5

Steve Sax said...

Just came back from solitary confinement. We're still out-hitting them but we are not leading...again

Nice two outs by Marmol there

QuadSevens said...

That Punto blunder allowed me to learn what TOOTBLAN stands for.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe is batting .125.

Ethier: .167.

This is not good, guys

Paul said...

Just got word my son pooped his pants. I can't confirm or deny if Dusty has.

spank said...

*craps*

Steve Sax said...

Shit, this is not looking good guys

Paul said...

I don't think beer is even helping.

Cliff Beefpile said...

2-run lead...worst lead in sports.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Gotta keep drinking

Cliff Beefpile said...

Damn it, I hate Marmol.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Getting sick of seeing Matheny's ugly mug.

Paul said...

Cheering for Marmol. It's like Ned is feeding me Krispy Kreme for dinner and I have to like it.

spank said...

Holy shit! There's an African-American on the Cardinals!

Hideo Nomo said...

I can watch 2008 and 2009 NLCS clips any time. Why the need to reenact them?

Steve Sax said...

Okay boys, Marmol (and the ump) stepped up for you here. It's up to you.

spank said...

Last three outs. Gotta do something here.

Paul said...

Ready for some fun?

spank said...

Roh oh

Steve Sax said...

we needed that, Andre.

Let's go, Blue

QuadSevens said...

Ethier with a single!

spank said...

I want to see Ethier walk to home plate after a Puig homer.

spank said...

My man Walter White!

spank said...

FUCKSHITGODDAMN

QuadSevens said...

Yuck.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Damn no Mickey Mouse celebrations tonight

Hollandsworth said...

We're done.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck it. 1.75 runs per game is not gonna get it done.

Cliff Beefpile said...

3-11 in the last three trips to the LCS. Fuck this shit.

Hideo Nomo said...

Too pissed to write a PGT.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.

Rookie For Now said...

Why does this somehow feel worse than Nolasco's painful outing against the Giants?

Also, "Hello gentlemen". I'm new here.

Paul said...

I'm sad.

Dusty Baker said...

Hi Rookie for Now - good to hear from you.

My Nolasco feelings went from "Hell yeah!" to "Shit, go to the pen Donnie" in fairly rapid order. Don't know what happened after the second. Guess guys picked up on his "deception."

Rookie For Now said...

I'm still sour on Nolasco's juicy opportunity in the batter's box. I know on paper you're not supposed to expect much from your pitcher in those situations, but dammit man, swing your feckin' bat...

Rookie For Now said...

Thanks for the warm welcome, Dusty. Been a lurker for a couple seasons. Wanted to jump in and say "hi" for a while.

I'll come up with a better screen name when I think of one.

Dusty Baker said...

Rookie for Now is actually a good one, because over time it becomes more ironic!

Yeah I agree re Tabasco at bat. He's the only guy I was yelling at to swing for the fences tonight.

Unless it's a really bad, almost physically impossible pitch, the ball isn't going to hit itself off your bat when it's on your shoulder, Ricky.
