Game 157 Thread: Sept. 22 vs. Giants, 7p

Dan Haren (13-11, 4.14) vs. Jake Peavy (7-13, 3.82).

It's the final countdown! One last homestand to the 2014 season!

And this is the last series we'll have this year with the Giants. And the season series is currently tied 8-8.

If we play our cards right, we'll get a chance to celebrate clinching the division at home, in front of the Giants. All we would need to do is win two of the next three games (which would also award us the season series victory, if my math is right).

Helping our cause will be the absence of center fielder Angel Pagan, out with an inflamed nerve in the lower back, and someone who absolutely kills us when he's in the lineup. Left fielder Michael Morse is also probably out for this series with injury, but all I got were dots and dashes from him.

I also should add that I'm watching today's game from enemy territory (wearing Dodgers shirt and cap). The last Dodgers/Giants game I watched was among friends and family (other Sons).  This time, it won't be so friendly. Let's see what happens.

Good luck, Danny boy!

Apostrophe usage is incorrect in both the title and splash page of video

Steve Sax said...

Oh shit, the apostrophe police are on the case

Orel said...

If Woody had gone to the apostrophe police...

Fred's Brim said...

Good Danny?
or
Bad Danny?

Steve Sax said...

And just like that, Haren gives up a HR.

1-0 Giants.

Steve Sax said...

Fucking A. Going to my first Bitter American Ale.

Steve Sax said...

Oh wait, my brother-in-law brought out Gordon Biersch. Should I go with Czech-Style pilsner, or Festbier?

Steve Sax said...

Need a response from the masses quick

Steve Sax said...

Pablo hit on the midsection. What a shocker given that gut

Steve Sax said...

Pence flies to short, end of inning.

The fact that Blanco got a HR is without conscience

spank said...

Let's do this!

karina said...

So, Sandoval got hit because his fatness :(

(cachicamo diciéndole a Morrocoy conchúo')

épale!

QuadSevens said...

Czech-Style. I know nothing about either though.

Fred's Brim said...

jesus Dan, you don't waste any time, do you. God damn

QuadSevens said...

I hope Bad Danny settles into Good Danny from here out.

spank said...

I decided not to booze tonight due to Haren being the starter. I don't trust his pitching and refuse to waste a buzz on him.

Fred's Brim said...

good call, spank

Fred's Brim said...

I still want Dee doing pushups at home plate when he pops up

karen said...

Hmmm, Yasiel hit after Haren hit Fatass.

spank said...

Batters already getting hit. Love it.

QuadSevens said...

Make him pay AGon!

Fred's Brim said...

Peavy yapping after the HBP

spank said...

Fuck! I was all ready to run out the front door nekked.

karen said...

FB...I thought the same exact thing when Dee hit the fly ball. Shades of Willie Mays Hayes.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, thought he had that one
stupid marine layer

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, I hate being a few seconds behind

Steve Sax said...

Thanks SoSGers. I'm cashing this Czech style

spank said...

goddamn PC

Steve Sax said...

Dammit. Kemp flies out, 1-0 SF through one.

spank said...

karen said...

Please be Good Dan Haren

Please be Good Dan Haren

Please be Good Dan Haren

spank said...

Gotta admit. That was a helluva pitch by Haren to strikeout Crawford.

Fred's Brim said...

nice inning, Danny

Steve Sax said...

Lead off walk to HanRam, but CC forces him at second. One out.

karen said...

Peavy mentioned before the game that he hated the Dodgers. Was taught to being raised in San Diego.

Another reason to hate Peavy.

And San Diego.

Steve Sax said...

Ursine swings on a bad one. Giants broadcasters are orgasming over Pervy.

Steve Sax said...

Can I start calling him Jake Pervy?

spank said...

I'm sure Steiner thought that was gone.

Fred's Brim said...

that looked like 2012 Uribe

Steve Sax said...

@karen: hard to hate the padres however. I save my hate for the giants.

Fred's Brim said...

Where did AJ find his recent power?

Steve Sax said...

Candlestick park is selling its seats for $749 for a pair of seats

spank said...

I hate San Diego. Just born that way. #LadyGagMeWithASpoon

Steve Sax said...

Gotta hit Pervy here

Steve Sax said...

@FB: I was thinking the same thing re: AJ

Fred's Brim said...

nice grab, Danny

Steve Sax said...

What. The fuck.

Talk out there you idiots

spank said...

Oh Come on man

Steve Sax said...

Coming, you guys are idiots

Fred's Brim said...

you clowns

Steve Sax said...

Goddammit it's now 2-0 because we are fucking idiots

spank said...

Da Bums are driving me to drink water.

Fred's Brim said...

boooo!

Fred's Brim said...

heh well said Vin

Pride of Dong said...

Field 14, in handicap, using my injury to get better seats! FTW!

Steve Sax said...

Nice pitch on Oyster Pubes to get the inning-ending k

Steve Sax said...

@pride of dong: you had better not be so injured as to not play MPQ

(In all seriousness, get well soon)

Fred's Brim said...

1-9 with the Sox? Sandbagging, perhaps?

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

2 fly balls for Dee tonight

Fred's Brim said...

woah, was that a blowup doll in the crowd just before they cut to commercial?

spank said...

Glad to see Mary Hart behind home plate and not Meathead this time.


Steve Sax said...

Even AGon is a mess defensively tonight. What the hell.

Steve Sax said...

We are playing like meatheads so far

Fred's Brim said...

Did we catch a case of Cubbiness in Chicago?

spank said...

Puig almost lost that one. I think the team needs spectacles before they make huge ones out of themselves.

Fred's Brim said...

holy crow that was ripped, amazed Puig got that

Fred's Brim said...

hehheh, good one, Spank

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hey, who ordered this shit?

Steve Sax said...

Peavy is killing us

spank said...

Man. Fuck this guy. Hit the mofo.

Fred's Brim said...

jeez, Peavy's found some kind of magic in SF

spank said...

Finally got that mutt out.

Fred's Brim said...

good inning, Danny

Fred's Brim said...

Is Dusty at the yard busy not drinking Montejos?

Steve Sax said...

Crawford! Boom

karen said...

CC BABY!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

THANK THE GODS!

Fred's Brim said...

CC!!!

spank said...

Crawdude!

spank said...

Crawdude!

Fred's Brim said...

damn, he cronked that, just foul

karina said...

SAFEEEEE!

Steve Sax said...

Uribe jazzhands too early

But gets a double anyway!

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe with the bloop double!

Steve Sax said...

AJ Ellis even gets a hit!

Steve Sax said...

Gordon with a sac fly, that shouldn't have been deep enough, but the Dominguez air mails one to Fresno. Tie game!!!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Dee? Nice work, Uribe with the hustle

Fred's Brim said...

OK new ballgame

Cliff Beefpile said...

SIDDOWN, Poser!

Greg said...

Cha-CHING!

Fred's Brim said...

Nice inning, Danny

spank said...

Tied score now? nice.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Fuck Pence and his capris.

Fred's Brim said...

damn, if he misses that, Hanley scores

Steve Sax said...

Come on Dee, make that throw

karina said...

100

Fred's Brim said...

jesus Dee
tighten it us, you dicks!

spank said...

nice snap throw there AJ. Agone may have missed the tag

Steve Sax said...

Dude he is Totally out a totally on that throw. What the fuck?!

spank said...

missed him

Steve Sax said...

The dude's helmet cocks from the tag. Damn he is OUT

Steve Sax said...

Fucking highway robbery mlb conspiracy bullshit

spank said...

fucking AGone should have said he missed the runner instead of wasting the review. dumbshit

Steve Sax said...

Haren sacks up and gets a key K anyway. Way to go danny

spank said...

@ Saxy

Left field camera angle shows Gonzo missed the helmet big time.

Steve Sax said...

@spank, he was out my man

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Danny! He was pumped, too! Never seen him show that kind of emotion

Hideo Nomo said...

Danny going 7+ ain't gonna do shit to save the bullpen of this goes to extras.

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh, and hey guys.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

DRE time!

spank said...

Haven't had a Dre Day for a while. Come on you mutt.

spank said...

Weak

Fred's Brim said...

at least Dee lined out this time. Not sure why Roger didn't run at some point. Waste of an AJ

Fred's Brim said...

I am terrified of the current edition of JP Howell. I think he's either overused or lost his rhythm, or both

karen said...

JP throwing some purdy pitches.

Fred's Brim said...

well said, Gnomes, RE extras

Fred's Brim said...

nice stab, JP

Steve Sax said...

Wilson coming in to face Posey with a man on?

It's over.

karen said...

Mattingly pulling JP. After that disaster on Saturday, I thought he looked much better. Now BWil coming in and that makes me nervous.

QuadSevens said...

Throw strikes Beard!

spank said...

i don't trust Wilson against the Gnats. I don't trust any Gnats period.

Steve Sax said...

Wilson walks Oyster Pubes, what a fuckin' surprise

QuadSevens said...

Pubes walks. Fat Panda up.

Steve Sax said...

Mattingly, if we lose this game, this is totally on you

spank said...

Let's load the bases. Fuck it. Why not?.

Fred's Brim said...

why is Wilson still in? Mattingly said he didn't like Wilson facing lefties with power

karen said...

Out of it.

Phew.

spank said...

(faints)

Fred's Brim said...

PHEW!

Steve Sax said...

HanRam saves Mattingly's bacon

Greg said...

That out was earned by AJEllis.

Greg said...

RomoGnome.

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh, you could see that K coming a mile away

spank said...

Meh. Stop reminding me about Romo,Vin.

Steve Sax said...

AGon rides it but not enough.

Two out

karen said...

Crap. I saw that one with my heart and thought it would go out.

Steve Sax said...

Come on, Kempy

Steve Sax said...

@karen: Charley still thinks AGon's ball was out

karen said...

Going to nine. All tied up.

spank said...

Weak

Fred's Brim said...

quiet

Fred's Brim said...

Kenley in a non-save situation
this should be good

Fred's Brim said...

nice start

Fred's Brim said...

Jansen with 23 pitches yesterday. This is gonna get ugly

karen said...

Kenley in for the hold? Do we want to do that?

Fred's Brim said...

dammit ump, you didn't call that pitch to Pence

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, there won't be a save situation from now on so you may as well use him

Steve Sax said...

i have a horribly bad feeling about this

Steve Sax said...

wow, Kenley with a K there

karen said...

Yes Kenley!

spank said...

whiff

Fred's Brim said...

Belt strikes out on ball 3

Steve Sax said...

Kenley gets a pop out to 2B. Two out

spank said...

Come on Jobu. Don't fail me now.

karen said...

FB...You're right.

Steve Sax said...

And, Crawford gets the expected, unexpected, hit. Giants at the corners, two out.

spank said...

Fuck

Steve Sax said...

this has disaster written all over it

Fred's Brim said...

jesus our gloves are terrible tonight

karen said...

We need to sacrifice a chicken for Jobu.

Steve Sax said...

honeycutt out there to remind kenley that this is kind of an important situation here

QuadSevens said...

And now you can unclench!

karina said...

after this, I think we have a shot here

spank said...

Goddamn. Whew.

karen said...

GOT HIM!!

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy, Kenley - way to battle

karen said...

Sistah Girl...Don't you have an anniversary coming up this weekend?

Greg said...

Oh man. Come on.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Please sir, may I have a walk-off?

karina said...

ok, hopefully we'll get Magallanes level Machí

karen said...

C'mon HanRam. Shut this baby down!

karina said...

@karen sistah, yes! Stubbs has planned something and I don't think we'll be around this weekend so we need the Dodgers to snatch the division before Friday

Franklin Stubbs said...

Lots of warning-track action tonight

karen said...

Happy 1st Anniversary You Two!!!

Fred's Brim said...

fuck the marine layer!

spank said...

I like that Vin doesn't give me false hopes of home runs especially during nervous times.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's Steiner's job

karen said...

Keep us out of extras Juan!!

Steve Sax said...

Everyone is swinging for the frickin fences

spank said...

All i gots is a can of Campbells to sacrifice. That'll have to suffice.

Steve Sax said...

Fucking A. Extras.

Fred's Brim said...

dammit, you could see that coming a mile away

Fred's Brim said...

oh bullpen, I don't think I can take any more of you

karen said...

Spanky...If its chicken then do it!

QuadSevens said...

We suck in extras. We need to change that.

spank said...

Fucking hell. I swear i would have strangled Elbert had the runner been safe

Fred's Brim said...

wake up, Scotty

QuadSevens said...

Elbert wins the race to first for out number 1.

Fred's Brim said...

our defense is going to cost us once more in this game

spank said...

Will do,Karen. Will do.

karen said...

No Dee! No, no, no!!!

spank said...

Gotta make those plays this time of year.

Steve Sax said...

Criminy, Dee, HOLD ON TO THE FRICKIN' BALL

Franklin Stubbs said...

League?

Oh, joy.

spank said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
!

Fred's Brim said...

for chrissakes, Dee, cut the shit!
