Game 14 Thread: April 15 @ Giants, 7p

Josh Beckett (0-0, 9.00) vs. Tim Lincecum (0-1, 9.90).

The Dodgers playing on the road on Jackie Robinson Day? Heresy. There will likely be a lot of runs scored on this Jackie Robinson Day by the first-place Dodgers and second-place (by a game) Giants, as former World Series MVP Beckett and former two-time Cy Young winner Lincecum square off in the Battle of the Has-Beens. Another nod to the past, perhaps?

FUCK THE GNATS!

HateHateHate!

karen said...

My HATE is flowing freely!! FUCK the gnats!!

Neeebs (The Original) said...

What channel can I watch the game?

Wait...what?

Orel said...

Looks like the hate train left the station early today.

Orel said...

Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick 3m

Paco Rodriguea is not heading out to the field for stretching, apparently he will be optioned to make room for Brian Wilson.

Hideo Nomo said...

I think we can do without Paco Rodriguea, as long as they didn't send down Paco Rodriguez.

Dusty Baker said...

DfuckingFA League already. We need Paco.

Hideo Nomo said...

ITFDB

It's titties for Dusty Baker.

karen said...

I have to admit I got teary eyed listening to Vin and Jon Miller announcing the lineups saying each player and that they were wearing number 42.

Thank you Jackie Robinson.

karen said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention how much I LOVE to HATE Tim Lincecum.

Orel said...

Uribe!

Hideo Nomo said...

Waiting for the caterpillar on Timmah's face to become a butterfly.

Hideo Nomo said...

URBIE!!!

Orel said...

Beckett plunks Morse in the elbow.

Orel said...

Beckett pickoff error allows Morse to third? What the hell?

spank said...

the new Apple II ain't worth a shit.

spank said...

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

I would have loved to have seen that DP to get us out of the inning just now.

spank said...

Puig's in the hole. Tha's what gameday say's anyways.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig hitting .231 these days. Feels like he's hitting somewhat better.

BJ Killeen said...

Gypped today. Was going to Tigers/Indians game but the damn snow killed it. And I had my Dodgers warm cap to wear. Wanted to represent the Dodgers on JR day. Boo

Orel said...

Uribe Ks swinging with the bases loaded. FedEx up.

Orel said...

Ugh.

Dusty Baker said...

FedEx sucksEx. We gotta get a decent catcher (back) or in a trade. Can't do this really light hitting white guy, not pitch sequencing well, slow as shit solution all season for a team projected to go to WS.

Not abandoning AJEllis by any stretch but we need a real succession plan. Go get Kurt Suzuki or someone like that.

Orel said...

Now Giants with RA.

QuadSevens said...

And we escape!

Orel said...

Beckett wriggles off the hook!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck you, Journey. Ours was the real Escape.

Hideo Nomo said...

Beckett is a Carnival Cruise. Sure, it starts out smoothly enough, but then there's no power and shit EVERYWHERE.

Dusty Baker said...

42 minutes between Beckett pitches tonight in honor of Jackie.

Orel said...

Beckett in another jam. Men on 1st & 2nd with two out in the fifth inning.

Dusty Baker said...

Norovirus time!

Orel said...

Walks Sandoval. Bases sacked for O. Pubes.

Orel said...

I thought the Giants had offense this year.

spank said...

great top of the inning guys.

Orel said...

Dodgers go down easily in the sixth.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to picture that Ethier AB like if Lamar Latrell from Revenge of the Nerds was swinging at the ball.

Dusty Baker said...

This infield defense is shakier than Spanky on a Monday after a three-day weekend.

Dusty Baker said...

This one's on you, HanRam.

Orel said...

And Withrow shits the bed, with an assist from Hanley's error. Tie game.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOO

spank said...

Neighbors looks like a great flick. not really.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Highly recommend black-guy-wearing-a-fat- suit-dressing-up-as-an-older-woman part VIII. Can't miss it!

Dusty Baker said...

Took me forever to figure out what that "C" line is in GameDay's box score layout this season. Man I feel stupid.

More than usual, even.

spank said...

score some runs goddamnit!

Orel said...

Painful inning for Withrow. And yet we were lucky the Giants only scored one.

spank said...

i'm still tripping on moundball. it's like one of us is coming up with these names for gameday.

Orel said...

Wait! What is "C"? Crappy play?

Orel said...

Can't stop Juan.

spank said...

goddamn Urine!!

Dusty Baker said...

I still can't believe I find myself saying "Fuck yeah, Uribe!!!" several times a night, consistently.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

No, there's only one spot for the "C" notation. We would need a lot more space if it were "Crappy play".

Dusty Baker said...

I am going to state the obvious:

The Angels' bullpen is poor.

Orel said...

Thank you, Mochi!

Dusty Baker said...

I'd love some green tea mochi right now.

Hideo Nomo said...

Mochi looks like he enjoys a lot of his namesake dessert.

Hideo Nomo said...

DAMMIT?

spank said...

let's do this,mangs!

Dusty Baker said...

I think that was more of a co-sack type situation, Nomo, like when two people get half a sack.

Dusty Baker said...

Snakes got pounded by Mutts 9-0.

Dusty Baker said...

Turner gives us the lead!!!

spank said...

that's right

Dusty Baker said...

Redeem yourself, Hanley.

Mother of shit, just leave a pitcher in for awhile, Bochy. I want to re-watch Game of Thrones already and it's getting late.

spank said...

that's a shame.

Orel said...

2-1 us. Need nine more outs.

Dusty Baker said...

I need nine more beers.

Actually I haven't had a single beer. have no idea what I was thinking.

spank said...

no beers??

(cries)

spank said...

Bean this piece of shit!

Hideo Nomo said...

I had Firestone 805. Sadly, not 805 Firestones.

spank said...

yasueil triple!

Orel said...

Puig's triple wasted. I'm sure that won't come back and bite us in the ass.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Update. I'm blind here.

Orel said...

Our bullpen is overrated.

BJ Killeen said...

Give Juan more money.

Orel said...

Wow, UJTD!

spank said...

here i is

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Did we get insurance runs yet?

spank said...

matty single. no insurance run(s) yet neeebster

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

spank said...

no insurance runs.

spank said...

butt clenching time

Hideo Nomo said...

One away!

Orel said...

When's the last time Kenley had a 1-2-3 inning?

Dusty Baker said...

Either UTJD or we have to face Kung Fat.

QuadSevens said...

Well shit!

Dusty Baker said...

When's the last time we had 100 comments?


(cries)

Where the hell is Mr F?

Neeebs (The Original) said...

And the experts say not to worry about KJ

spank said...

goddamnitsonofabitch

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Gonna lose this game.

QuadSevens said...

96 mph heat to K Fat Panda.

QuadSevens said...

IBB to Oyster Pubes to get to Pence now.

Dusty Baker said...

We're going to hate the end of this game, aren't we?

QuadSevens said...

0-2 to Pence. Still possible DB.

Hideo Nomo said...

I've kinda hated all of this game, tbh.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

^ *nods*

QuadSevens said...

Extra innings.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Sure would be nice to be watching this game.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

There's your 100 DB

Hideo Nomo said...

Fucking hell, Puig. None of that ice cream cone shit.

Orel said...

What the fuck happened?

QuadSevens said...

If you were watching this game you'd hate the Corky's Pest Control commercial as much as I do.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Is everyone watching the game except me?

Hideo Nomo said...

Puig nearly bobbled the catch.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

Nope, I can't see a thing.

QuadSevens said...

I'm watching. But I'll be heading to bed soon.

Dusty Baker said...

That Corky's Pest Control ad may be in the top three shittiest ones I've ever heard.

QuadSevens said...

Hanley fouls off a bunch then fouls out. One down.

QuadSevens said...

AGon hits a weak liner to second. Two down.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

So when I go to DS is Tommy' s restaurant worth the hype? I'm a Rodger dog kind of guy.

Dusty Baker said...

Even crappier is that I find out what happens by reading the posts about 15 seconds before my audio feed catches up.

Just not a good way to consume sports, no offense to you fine commenters.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs re Tommy's

Take it for what it is. It's fast food in a baseball stadium; it's not Spago. That said, it's decent and a good alternative from the other more routine fare.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Got it.
Now do we run Puig here?

Orel said...

Wow. This team.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Jaime Wright. Oh boy.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Where did Saxy disappear to?

Neeebs (The Original) said...

And Karina is MIA too.

Orel said...

Fuck.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

I smell walk off

Hideo Nomo said...

I hate this stupid sport.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

I blame Jansen

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah, it's weird. I know Jansen is better than that, but he kinda hasn't been. A lotta weird lucky hits, but still...

Orel said...

I smell shrimp.

Orel said...

HOW ARE WE STILL ALIVE

Neeebs (The Original) said...

That was our lucky break.

Can we string some hits here?

Neeebs (The Original) said...

And I'm getting sleepy.

Orel said...

OK, major props to Jamey Wright for wriggling off that hook. No idea how he did it. SINCE I CAN'T WATCH THE FUCKING GAME

Orel said...

donthitintoaDPdonthitintoaDPdonthitintoaDPFUCK

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Would have been nice to have gotten that bunt down TFed

Neeebs (The Original) said...

I'm calling it a night.

Orel said...

Really? Wright again?

Orel said...

Sweet dreeems!

Orel said...

At least he got an out before allowing the first hit.

Orel said...

UJTMFD!

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm in this to the end.

Orel said...

Chone Time

Orel said...

I'm in this until I pass out.

Orel said...

Hanley double!

Orel said...

IBB AGon...

Hideo Nomo said...

(Ch)one out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Weird Baseball.

Orel said...

shit

Orel said...

Well fuck that.

BJ Killeen said...

I truly hate that guy.

Orel said...

PGTUP. I don't even know why
