Scoreboard Watching: World Series Game 3: Beards @ Shards, 4:30p

Jake Peavy (12-5, 4.17) vs. Joe Kelly (10-5, 2.69)

The next installment in the Bitter Party makes for an interesting story line. Wait, there's really only one story line:

Now is your time to avenge the Joe Kelly pitch to HanRam's ribs, Red Sox. Do it. We'll owe you one and we certainly have your back against the hated Shards.

David Ortiz checks in at first base while Mike Napoli sits based on the NL rules. Pivotal game, and it should be a great one. Sam Adams up, everyone!

This will also serve as your comments thread for UCLA at Oregon, Stanford at Oregon State, and South Carolina at Missouri Game Thread. However, no comments re: Furman vs. LSU are welcome here.

ps- Sorry for the anti-Cards vibe around here, @DiamondFischer! We still love you.

This TX Tech v Oklahoma isn't a bad game to follow, either. 24-21 Tech at end of three.

Dusty Baker said...

7-7 in UCLA game early. Come on, you Bruins! Fuck a duck!

Steve Sax said...

UCLA and Oregon tied at 7 at the end of one, but Oregon comes out and scores immediately in the second.

Steve Sax said...

I want me some pizza tonight. Who's with me?!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm in, Saxy!

Dusty Baker said...

Miss a fuckin bat already, Peavy!

Orel said...

Way to bring it, Peavy.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus fucking chrits, Peavy! You are terrible! Fuck you, fuckerer.

Dusty Baker said...

14-14 in UCLA v O game.

Dusty Baker said...

Peavy should spend more time thinking about pitching and less time worrying about that Uribe-sized chew in his mouth.

I mean the chew is the size of Uribe, not the size of a chew that Uribe would have.

Orel said...

I hate the Red Sox, but I find I'm hating the Cards even more right now.

Orel said...

What are the Clydesdales doing at the World Series? Don't they have footballs to kick?

Dusty Baker said...

Feel the hateHateHATE, Orel!

Dusty Baker said...

RIP Edna Krabappel.

BJ Killeen said...

UCLA Score update Dusty? I'm trying to get caught up on my deadlines...

Dusty Baker said...

@ BJ

14-14. Second half just started with both teams being held to three and out.

BJ Killeen said...

Thanks, D. I'm gonna try to catch the half. Would be awesome to beat O after losing to S last week.

Dusty Baker said...

Has the sniff of an upset, doesn't it, BJ?

Robs!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I can't remember the last time UCLA threw the ball downfield. Come on, Bruins!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Even knowing Tim McCarver won't be back next year doesn't make listening to him any easier.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I think my hatred of Joe Kelly has surpassed even Victorino. I'm rooting for Jake Peavy and these bearded dipshit Red Sox. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?

Dusty Baker said...

Joe Kelly has something coming to him. I want to see his pain.

Dusty Baker said...

2-1 BoSox now after some small ball. Feels slightly better.

Dusty Baker said...

Oregon up 28-14 now. DAMMIT.

Dusty Baker said...

35-14 now and this one is done.

Dusty Baker said...

Hometown a-hole David Freese. I really have no reason to dislike this guy, but I do. #Culero

Dusty Baker said...

2-2 top of the 7th.

Dusty Baker said...

SCar just upset #5 Mizzou. SEC is a bitch.

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck the Cards. They can eat a dick sandwich.

Fred's Brim said...

watching these shitbag teams, I have no idea how I would mentally manage the Dodgers being in the world series. they might commit me just to be safe

Fred's Brim said...

what the fuck

Fred's Brim said...

obstruction? that is a pile of horseshit, horsedongs and horseballs

Fred's Brim said...

it feels like this is fixed

Fred's Brim said...

Craig touched Middlebrooks' balls

Fred's Brim said...

fuck you Cards, the baseball gods will eventually get tired of you jostling their balls and will look for something else

Fred's Brim said...

FB still angry, more drunk

Orel said...

"Craig touched Middlebrooks' balls"

heh heh

Cliff Beefpile said...

That was...odd. Not that I really care all that much, but why did Saltalawatchamacallit make that throw in the first place? It's like the Red Sox are hellbent on throwing this series away.

Steve Sax said...

Replays show Middlebrooks tried to raise up his legs to trip Craig. It was the right call. Middlebrooks' move was as lame as A-Rod trying to slap the ball out of the glove.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gonna play devil's advocate for a sec. Not to argue with ya, Brother Sax, but I think Middlebrooks lifting his legs was his attempt at trying to clear the basepath. But neither player was looking at each other, so a clusterfuck ensued.

But, obstruction is obstruction, intent or not.

Steve Sax said...

Hmm, you may be right. Watching some more replays, it's hard to tell what the hell went on there. Saltamacchia probably shouldn't have made that throw, but it sounds like curious managerial decisions were made by both sides all game long (I didn't watch the full game). Oh well

Dusty Baker said...

The call - much as I hate to say - was right. There was no reason Middlebrooks had to lift his legs up in that situation. His momentum had come to a stop, so one can't say his legs came up as a result of his forward movement. He was taking some sort of risk, but the real story is how stupid Salty was to make such a high-risk throw.
