Game 95 Thread: July 11 vs. Padres, 7p

Dan Haren (8-5, 4.06) vs. Jesse Hahn (4-2, 2.34).

In his last outing, Haren was all wet. Following up a 7.0 IP, one-hit wonder against Cleveland, Haren went out there July 5 at Coors Field and shit the bed, yielding 10 H and 8 ER over 5.1 IP. Haren's ERA continues to steadily rise this year, but this outing alone accelerated this rising trend by almost 0.50 runs, his biggest game-to-game increase since early April. This does not give us a lot of reassurance.

Meanwhile, Hahn's ERA is going in the opposite direction: downward. Hahn made his major league debut this year on June 3, and the Pirates shellacked him: 3.2 IP with 6 H and 4 ER, giving him an ERA of 9.82. But four consecutive winning starts later, Hahn's ERA sat at 1.95, with his last outing (7.0 IP, 3 ER in a loss to the Giants) showing a slight blip back upward. Which means Hahn has four wins in his last five starts (and no NDs across six starts). So if Haren is wet, will Hahn be super-dry tonight?

At the very least, we need to make sure this isn't a complete game from the Padres' starter. Not aiming very high, I know. But the thought of a smug Hahn solo would be too much to bear.

surprised to see SVS in instead of Dre vs the righty

Orel said...

Hahn solo? Joba be ashamed of yourself.

Fred's Brim said...

"overall soreness" for Andre, is that better or worse than "general soreness"?

karen said...

Mattingly announcing Dre 'suffering from overall soreness' which is why he's not starting.

karen said...

Are you spying on me, FB??!!

karen said...

The Kid is beardless.

Fred's Brim said...

Seth Smith will hit 3 homers tonight

Fred's Brim said...

please, Dan, keep the ball down and in the park tonight

Fred's Brim said...

oof Dee crunches his junk against the wall

Fred's Brim said...

and please, throw strikes for chrissakes

Fred's Brim said...

Carlos Quentin, "Pride of Stanford"? I'd prefer we get a confirmation from Stanford before we start calling him that

spank said...

FUCK THE PADRES

karen said...

Dodgers fans are to forgiving. Carlos Quentin should get his fat ass booed out of the stadium everytime he comes to the plate.

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe can't get the grounder up the middle, Haren in some 2-out trouble

karen said...

Spanky in da house!!

Fred's Brim said...

Haren getting squeezed

Fred's Brim said...

nice pickup by Dee to end the inning

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Matty!

karen said...

FH up 2-0 in first against 'Bags.

My Man brings in the RBI. 1-0 Good Guys.

Fred's Brim said...

AMARISTA?!? Dan Haren, fuck you!

Fred's Brim said...

UNACFUCKINGCEPTABLE

Fred's Brim said...

Stupid ass wild pitch K
FB FURIOUS

Orel said...

ugh

Franklin Stubbs said...

I flipped on the TV just as that ball was leaving the yard.
Schleprocked.

Fred's Brim said...

nice play, Dee, terrible pitching, Dan

spank said...

belated BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

I am trying hard not to complain about Haren, trying to stay positive

Fred's Brim said...

at least we cleared the pitcher

karen said...

I was taking care of my mom and missed the Amarista homerun. Here's my belated "What the fuck?"

karen said...

Vinny talking politics. That's so unlike him. It must be weighing heavy on his mind.

Orel said...

Matty works the walk after going down 0-2. Nice

karen said...

Scotty looked fooled on that K.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Dan, finish this off, keep them at 2

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Dan

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

karen said...

Chase. Fucking. Headly.

Orel said...

Headley RBI double makes it 3-1 Padres. Just trade for him already

karen said...

Haren at 96 pitches with no outs in the fifth.

Orel said...

SF 5-0 in the 5th. Goodbye, sole possession of first place

karen said...

Haren tossing up BP now.

karen said...

Mattingly pulling Haren.

Fred's Brim said...

this is sad

karen said...

Vinny saying Haren only able to get into the seventh 3 times in 19 starts.

karen said...

Perez in. Now things are really sad.

Steve Sax said...

Haren can't even get one out in the fifth.

Ned is on the phone to David Price.

Fred's Brim said...

Can AJ look at some film of Haren and figure out his problems?

Steve Sax said...

Our biggest lead of the year has been 1.5 games, so it would have been pretty damn impressive if we had picked up a full game today.

Still could happen, however.

Fred's Brim said...

what a fucking tease

karen said...

Matty breaks his bat over his knee after that K.

That's gonna leave a mark.

Fred's Brim said...

why am I still watching this?

Fred's Brim said...

fuck these dud bats, I hate it when we get into these hitting doldrums

karen said...

Vinny talking about The Babe and what a tough life he had as a youngster. 6 of his 8 siblings died young, his mom died of TB and his father was stabbed to death in front of the saloon he owned. Vinny saying that that saloon still stands about 75 yards from second base at Camden Yard. I was lucky enough to see it on a visit to Camden Yard and really felt like I saw something.

Fred's Brim said...

what a bunch of assholes

Fred's Brim said...

not you, karen, this team right now who can't hit, pitch or catch

Fred's Brim said...

Rancho Headleyendo

Fred's Brim said...

imagine how awful Headley would be for us if we traded for him

Fred's Brim said...

Jamey working to get out of this mess, one more out to get

Fred's Brim said...

and he does get the third out...

this is so sad, good night

Orel said...

We're losing 6-1? What happened?

Orel said...

Never mind, I don't want to know

karen said...

I've been sitting here watching this game and I still can't figure out how the hell we got behind the lowly ass Padres by 5 runs. When this team goes bad, they are really painful to watch.

karen said...

Boys threatening (teasing?) in the 8th. 2 on, no outs.

karen said...

RA for boys, 2 out CC AB.

karen said...

Nope. CC grounds out leaving bases juiced. Onto ninth.

karen said...

No foam parties, streaking or questionable acts with fish and/or barnyard animals tonight for SoSGers.

Maholm probably tomorrow nights starter so not much hope there either.

Steve Sax said...

We lose. Giants win. All tied up again.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!
