Game 76 Thread: June 21 @ Padres, 7p

Josh Beckett (4-4, 2.49) vs. Tyson Ross (6-6, 3.27).

The Padres are so excited to have the Dodgers in town today, the Padres' stadium giveaway this evening is a t-shirt focusing on the Dodgers (whose city of Los Angeles has a bigger font size than the Padres' logo). Look, I know the Padres' camouflage uniforms are pretty ugly, but envious green doesn't seem to be a very good color on the Padres, either.

But enough about the Mission Federal Credit Union sponsored promotions! We've got two starters with completely mediocre W-L records dueling tonight. But only one of those pitchers has a no-hitter this year, and that guy (Beckett) is 5-2 with a 2.41 ERA lifetime vs. the Padres. Meanwhile, Tyson, who is coming off walking seven batters in his last start against the Mariners, is a chicken. So will it be "Beat LA"? Or "Eat Tyson"?

Turner-Butera is fair play

Fred's Brim said...

Beckett-Turner Overdrive

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

My cousin said he was going to the game today and would get me a "Beat LA" tshirt. I thought he was talking smack as usual, but the Padres really are giving out Beat LA t's! Silly padres, what will they think of next.

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley stranded at second after a 1-out jamshot double down the right field line

Fred's Brim said...

not sure why I am back tonight after last night's shitshow

Fred's Brim said...

Booze Status: Founders Porter

karen said...

I think we need to throw at Smith and break a rib or maybe a hand.

Fred's Brim said...

Seth Smith up after a 1-out walk to Cabrera. How many homers will he hit tonight?

karen said...

I'm happy to say I fell asleep and missed last nights implosion.

Fuckheads score 3 to start the game in AZ

Fred's Brim said...

Droop guns down Cabrera at second

Fred's Brim said...

Watching Only the Lonely on TV. It has a great scene from old Comiskey

Fred's Brim said...

Heh Beckett lost count of the outs

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, you were lucky to have missed it

karen said...

FB...I caught that little walk Becks made around the back of the mound after the third out too.

Fred's Brim said...

1-2-3 in the second 2nd

Orel said...

Had to check who the Fuckheads were. Can't they just rename the team?

Fred's Brim said...

first second I mean

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel I think it's like the Redskins situation. They can call themselves that but they won't have trademark protection

Fred's Brim said...

wow Amarista whistles one to short but Hanley tracks it down and throws him out at 1st

Fred's Brim said...

Droop with the leasoff single

karen said...

Fuckheads has the official TM in my world.

Fred's Brim said...

Beckett gets a nice bunt down

Fred's Brim said...

Dee singles in Droop! 1-0 good guys

Fred's Brim said...

SpeeDee steals second and scoots to 3rd when the throw goes into center

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley with a medium fly to center, Dee beats the throw, 2-0 good guys!

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley and Dee with a warm embrace in the dugout as Puig grounds out. He looks gimpy still

karen said...

With all the Dodgers fans at PetCo this is a borderline home game.

karen said...

Now fuckheads 4 Douchebags 2.

Fred's Brim said...

Beckett strikes out the side in the 3rd

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley with a nice stop and flip to Dee to get the lead runner

Fred's Brim said...

Beckett gets around the leadoff single

Fred's Brim said...

Turner with a perfectly placed grounder to right to get us started

Fred's Brim said...

Turner swipes second on the delayed steal/wild pitch

Steve Sax said...

For all of you out-of-market folks, this is the free game of the day

Fred's Brim said...

Beckett with a worthless at bat

Fred's Brim said...

Dee draws the walk

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley with a single to drive in Turner, Dee to 3rd, 3-0 good guys!

karen said...

Hanley delivers. 3-0 Good Guys.

Orel said...

FB & Karen on the same page

Fred's Brim said...

hard smash off Beckett's shin for an infield single

Fred's Brim said...

nice play by Adrian to get the lead runner

Fred's Brim said...

Beckett gets Ross to pop up for the 3rd out

Fred's Brim said...

Matty goes down to get that ball for a single

karen said...

A collective cheer rises to the heavens from Matt Kemp Whores everywhere.

Fred's Brim said...

Matty cut down trying to steal

karen said...

A collective cry of "Why God?" rises to the heavens from Matt Kemp Whores everywhere.

Fred's Brim said...

Beckett gets throug the 6th despite the 2-out walk

Orel said...

When's the last time Kemp tried to steal a base?

Orel said...

5-4 Fuckheads

karen said...

Fuckheads 5, Douchebags 4.

Fred's Brim said...

oh man, I can't stay awake, gonna pack it in.
Get us a win, yall!

karen said...

Night, FB!!

Orel said...

It would be huge if Beckett could get through seven. He's at 92 pitches with one out.

Orel said...

Good job, Beckett! Now watch Donnie bring him out for the eighth.

karen said...

Its really funny. My mom keeps asking why we aren't talking more on the blog and I keep explaining to her about the TWC debacle, but for some reason she remembers that FB is in Brooklyn and keeps asking "Is the boy in Brooklyn still awake?"

karen said...

Dee doing his job making Torres nervous.

Paul said...

What is up with Torres hat?

karen said...

What is up with Torres' cap? Either its our TV or dude has goiters growing on his dome.

Dusty Baker said...

What a stupid fucking cap their pitcher has on. It is one of the new one that has protection built in, but it makes him look like a penis head.

Paul said...

Vinny just mentioned it.

Paul said...

Elmer Fudd night?

Dusty Baker said...

I come all the way to (near RBN land) to watch the game, and I have to watch this penis head Elmer Fudd pitcher?

Paul said...

I at least hope that is protection and not some stupid Pharell trend.

karen said...

Wow, it is such a joy to watch Dee run. AGon singles him in. 4-0 for the Good.

karen said...

I stand by my goiter comment.

Dusty Baker said...

I love Karen's mom calling us out on the GT participation.

Paul said...

Maybe it's his cell phone.

karen said...

White Flag Maholm in.

karen said...

Like I said, the white flags a wavin'.

Orel said...

We got bitchslapped by Karen's mom! Time to step it up!

Orel said...

Maholm allows a run, it becomes a save situation, and you-know-who comes in

Orel said...

I thought Dusty was being a bit harsh. I was wrong. Torres' cap

Orel said...

FH 6, DB 4, top 8

karen said...

Orel...Love the score update^

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers up 4-1

SF up 6-4

Both games in the eighth

Steve Sax said...

League is letting this get away

Paul said...

Fuck!!!

Paul said...

It is not Padres fans Vinny. That is their speakers.

karen said...

Beckett pitched his heart tonight and the bullpen comes in like a bunch of fucking arsonists with their gas cans.

Hideo Nomo said...

I want one of those hats. IDGAF.

karen said...

Kenley warming up.
Karen getting chills down her spine.

Orel said...

All that two-out scoring by the Padres. I don't know why I've forgotten they always play us tough

Steve Sax said...

how did we get out of the eighth?

Steve Sax said...

well, that was quick. On to B9

Dusty Baker said...

@ Sax

Barely.

Paul said...

One down.

Orel said...

ONE OUT, BABY

Dusty Baker said...

One down. MDIL says Kenley doesn't look mean enough these days.

Paul said...

Remember when Jansen didn't walk anyone and threw 97 mph? Good times.

Paul said...

Fuck.

Orel said...

Nothing is ever easy with Kenley

karen said...

Carlos Quentin on deck. I hate that mother fucking bastard.

Paul said...

Strike this fuckhead out. Then hit him.

Orel said...

In play, out(s)!

Paul said...

One more.

Paul said...

God that is a room service fastball.

Paul said...

Throw something dirty Jansen

karen said...

SATURDAY NIGHT FOAM PARTY!!

Paul said...

Dirty dirty. Make that party.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Jansen gets the save. Sounded like a lot of LA Dodgers fans there!

Steve Sax said...

karen has really picked up the cursing the last two nights. Let's keep this (relatively) clean, kids

karen said...

Fuckheads up 6-4 in bot of 9th.

Orel said...

Uh, Dusty and I have been kind of encouraging her

karen said...

Sorry Sax! Right on cue there I give the fuckhead update =(

Orel said...

Man on second for the Douchebags against the Fuckheads OOPS

Orel said...

Two on against Romo! One out

Orel said...

Orel said...

Hideo Nomo said...
