Game 153 Thread: Sept. 18 @ Cubs, 5p

"Changing your pillowcase helps prevent acne."

Zack Greinke (15-8, 2.64) vs. Tsuyoshi Wada (4-3, 3.34).

Two-faced? These Dodgers? They're 40-35 at home and 46-31 on the road. They score 17 runs one day, then give up 16 another day. With the exception of the consistently good (Kershaw and AGon) and consistently bad (Perez), the team is riddled (Riddlered?) with schizo performers: Good/Bad Haren. Developing/Immature Puig. Injured/Healthy Kemp. Terrible/Serviceable League. Hence, we have no idea which Dodgers team will show up today in Chicago, even with the Giants winning with sphincter-tightening regularity. Roll those dice!

Orel said...

Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick 39s

Greinke has 54 pitches through 2 IP.

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe works the walk. It looked like he was up there just to get the walk

karen said...

Alright, alright. 54 pitches.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, AJ jobbed on a high-and-inside strike two (should have walked), then GIDP

karen said...

AJ hits into the DP.

Wada hasn't allowed a hit.

Fred's Brim said...

Greinke doing a lot of talking with the ump

spank said...

@ Orel 5:09pm - "Dee...."

Fred's Brim said...

this ump's strikes are all over the place

spank said...

@ Orel 5:09pm - "Dee...."

Fred's Brim said...

spank said...

it's official. this Belkin wireless adapter modem USB contraption nonsense is a piece of shit.

Fred's Brim said...

lucky bastard

karen said...

Good throw by Matty to throw Valbuena out at second.

Atta boy Matty!!

karen said...

Wada pitching a no hitter.

Wada pitching a no hitter.

Wada pitching a no hitter.

Fred's Brim said...

72 pitches through 3. He'll be lucky to get through the 5th

spank said...

Tainted Wada.

Fred's Brim said...

DEE STOP BUNTI...SAFE!

karen said...

Suck that Wada!!

spank said...

Make it a double,bish. Best steal that base.

Fred's Brim said...

dammit, Dee!

spank said...

well that's a shame

Fred's Brim said...

that was sad

Fred's Brim said...

of course Puig singles after that

spank said...

and of course Puig gets a single on the next pitch after the pickoff.

spank said...

1-0 Dodgers. oh wait. FUCK!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian with a single, Puig races over to third

Fred's Brim said...

@spank are you watching on WGN?

spank said...

Come on Matty!!

spank said...

@ FB

No. Online streamimg. First time i'm hearing Nomar. Not liking.

Fred's Brim said...

awful strike out, fuck me running

Fred's Brim said...

@spank yeah I hear ya, I have them on mute. Charlie is hard to listen to as well

spank said...

would have liked to hear the ball causing Matty's bat to snap,not the ground.

Fred's Brim said...

goddamn stupid K, just get the guy home

karen said...

Crap.

Fred's Brim said...

so sad

spank said...

Wada you mean you couldn't score in that inning?!!

Fred's Brim said...

GODDAMMIT we can fucking do this, just fucking do it for chrissakes!

spank said...

Fucking hell

karen said...

This is like getting beat by a bunch of high schoolers. C'mon Boys!

Fred's Brim said...

this is painful. can't something good happen?

spank said...

sack up,Greinke

spank said...

shut the fuck up Nomar

Fred's Brim said...

OK 2 outs. Get the pitcher or I quit

spank said...

Come on ya bums. Score some runs

karen said...

OH NO!!

spank said...

damn. that sucked.

Fred's Brim said...

jesus fucking christ
first we get jobbed on a low strike again, then when something good happens it ends up being terrible
we've pissed off the baseball gods something terrible. I blame Mattingly and his challenge when we were up 13 on the Giants

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, AJ, way to get him home

spank said...

we may need to sacrifice a Son to right the ship.

spank said...

dammit. busy typing. missed the seeing the run.

spank said...

2-1. we got one back. Don't allow any more runs to score,Greinke you fucking mutt.

Fred's Brim said...

last inning for Zach? make it a good one, kid

Fred's Brim said...

@spank you have your mutts on this team over the years. Who is the muttiest mutt?

Fred's Brim said...

Wada done for the night

Fred's Brim said...

jesus Dee, make that play!

spank said...

nervous time

Fred's Brim said...

this goddamn ump

karen said...

I hope we're not witnessing the beginning of the death spiral of 2014.

karen said...

C'mom guys! Focus and win this bitch!!

spank said...

bleh

Orel said...

Death Spiral 2014™, brought to you by Farmer John

Fred's Brim said...

if we can't win with our best pitchers pitching, then what?

karen said...

Orel...I hate saying that but this is getting really disturbing.

spank said...

almost shit my pants

karen said...

FB...Not only with our best pitchers but our best pitchers against a shitty team.

Orel said...

Giants fans have to be feeling pretty great right about now

spank said...

wait. maybe i did.

Fred's Brim said...

so that should do it for Zach's elbow, right?

spank said...

let's all calm down and look on the bright side





(cries)

Orel said...

Another soul-crushing inning

Steve Sax said...

Wada the hell is going on here

spank said...

your mutt question stumped me,FB. but one name has been lingering. Ethier. I think he's the muttiest of all the mutts because he did not reach the potential i envisioned. combine. that with his shitty attitude that to this day he still has (he had a shitty assed looking face while Greinke was running the bases on his homer the other day)therefor i will now crown Dre Day as King of the mutts. Jeff Kent is second. He was a real fucking mutt and a Gnat.

spank said...

Score this time for fucks sake

karen said...

The bastards. They're giving me hope.

Orel said...

Here's our daily look at the game

karen said...

Woo fucking hoo! We got a run!!

spank said...

YOU FUCKING MUTT!!

4-3

karen said...

DreMutt makes it 4-3. Dare we dream??

karen said...

TIED!!!

Orel said...

#sliverofhope

karen said...

NOW WE CAN HOPE!!

spank said...

TIED

karen said...

LEAD!! 5-4!!

spank said...

DUDE!

spank said...

DUDE!

spank said...

YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

karen said...

Life is beautiful again

Steve Sax said...

Fuck YEAH! 6-4

Orel said...

AW C'MON ADRIAN

Steve Sax said...

Way to get out of the jam, Baez

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Sonaofabitch!

spank said...

Cubs being Cubs

spank said...

win

Orel said...

WIN

karen said...

God help me, I have hope.

Fred's Brim said...

@spank thanks for your Mutts breakdown. I think my king of the mutts is JD Drew. That guy drove me crazy.

QuadSevens said...

I felt all the highs and lows of this game just by reading the GT. Well done.

Fred's Brim said...

@spank I can't believe I forgot him, but I was watching a thing about the 4+1 game and was reminded that Brad Penny is a first-ballot Hall of Mutts inductee for me
