Game 158 Thread: Sept. 23 vs. Giants, 7p


Zack Greinke (15-8, 2.76) vs. Ashley Madison (18-9, 2.91)

In Ashley Madison's last start against the Dodgers, the Giants scored nine runs, and the Dodgers zero. In Zack Greinke's last start against the Giants, the Dodgers scored seventeen runs, and the Giants zero. With the two facing each other tonight, you figure something's gotta give.

The Dodgers have to win both of the next two games to clinch the West without help from another team. They're not going to get it done with Dee, Puig, AGon, and Kemp putting up oh-fers. They're not going to get it done with sloppy defense*. And they're definitely not going to get it done by leaving Kevin Correia out there Diane on the mound. If any of that happens again, this series won't mean Jack.

*Except for that Puig throw. OH LAWD, THAT PUIG THROW. Let's watch it again!

I was feeling pretty cocky going into last nights game. Tonight I'm feeling quite humble.

Gnomes...Thanks for the replay on Yasiel's throw. I guess we had one highlight.

Orel said...

MKW's CELEBRATE

spank said...

THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT MOTHERFUCKERS

Cliff Beefpile said...

Muthafuckin' Bison! Eat a dick, madbum!

spank said...

IM GOING TO FUCK JOHN KRUK IN THE EAR

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow, MLB.TV is way behind the ESPN broadccast. Totally worth it to hear Vin instead of the ESPNers.

karina said...

├ępale everyone!

how's this wonderful thing where they try to move runners, pleasant, isn't it?

Hideo Nomo said...

I LIKE THIS. THIS IS GOOD.

karen said...

FUCK I fell asleep and just woke up and missed Matty's homer. MKWs very definitely celebrating!!

spank said...

ID RATHER LISTEN TO BIEBER THAN LISTEN TO THESE ESPN MONKEYS ANYMORE

(LISTENS TO BIEBER)

Fred's Brim said...

interesting start!

Paul said...

Bieber and Neeebs sound a lot alike when they sing.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Somebody get Bumdipshit a tissue or an antihistamine or something.

Steve Sax said...

Spank, you gotta turn down the volume on your internets

Cliff Beefpile said...

I always thought Neeebs was from the Yoko Ono school of singing.

karen said...

Vinny with the great story about Alvin Dark trying to take out Jackie.

spank said...

NEEEBS=MARTHA WASH

Paul said...

ESPN vs Giants station. These are not good options.

spank said...

OH FUCK. DAMN.

spank said...

SAMUEL JACKSON TOOK OVER MY INTERWEBS

Fred's Brim said...

YES THEY DESERVE TO DIE AND I HOPE THEY BURN IN HELL

spank said...

ITS NICE OF ESPN TO THROW OUT A HELPING HAND TO CURT SCHILLING.

(ROLLS EYES)

spank said...

ITS NICE OF JOHN KRUK TO POINT OUT THE NEGATIVES OF THE DODGERS AND NOT THE POSITIVES.

(FUCKS KRUK IN THE EAR)

karen said...

I used to like Kruk. These days, not so much.

spank said...

FUCK

karen said...

FUCKFUCKFUCK

and on 0 and 2.

spank said...

I HATE BIEBER

karina said...

these games will be suffering :(

karen said...

Zack not impressing me yet.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, Greinke, come on.

Paul said...

That really sucked.

Paul said...

Van Slyke looked like he was on roller skates.

spank said...

I'VE SUFFERED ENOUGH. I NEED TRANQUILITY


SERENITY NOW!

karen said...

Spank...I'm having visions of Frank Costanza dancing around in my head.

Fred's Brim said...

what in the hell is going on here? I walk away for a couple of minutes and this?

Fred's Brim said...

I blame Mart Hart. Where did she go?

karen said...

No more walking away FB. You're in for the duration. We need your mojo!

spank said...

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE COSTANZA. GEORGE THAT IS

Paul said...

Mart Hart the Flaming Menudos washboard player?

spank said...

MARY HART IS FRONT ROW,ME THINKS

Paul said...

Need to be patient against this big turd. Make him throw strikes!!

karen said...

Madison Bumturd. I like it.

Paul said...

We need a good at bat here Hanley.

Fred's Brim said...

it'd be nice to get a few more runs

Fred's Brim said...

MART IS BACK

spank said...

THE BOOZE HAS NULLIFIED THE HD.

Paul said...

That wasn't good....

karen said...

Vinny, being the class act that he is, is playing the worlds smallest violin for Diablo Pagan. Me on the other hand, having no class at all says ha ha Diablo! No soup for you fucker!!

spank said...

MART HART IS CURRENTLY ON THE ROAD WITH JED AND JIMBO'S "MARRY YOUR COUSIN" REUNION TOUR.

karen said...

The Zackster is making MKW nervous. We are going to need a lot more runs the way he's looking.

QuadSevens said...

Bumturd hits Puig and hits a home run. So when do we drill him in the ribs?

spank said...

NASTY CURVE FOR THE STRIKEOUT RIGHT THERE BY THE ZACKSTER

karen said...

I missed Puig getting hit. Did it look like there was intent?

QuadSevens said...

He got hit in the foot. Could have been. Not sure if Bumturd said something to make Puig mad, but he popped up and was pissed.

karen said...

SVS may be safe there.

karen said...

SHIT

Cliff Beefpile said...

That was awfully close...too close for them to reverse it probably.

In other news, GO CUBBIES!

Paul said...

We needed a gift single like that.

Paul said...

Come on AJ at least raise his pitch count up.

spank said...

NASA'S MARS MAVEN PROBE WOULD HAVE HAD BETTER VIDEO FOR THAT REPLAY THAN THE MLB'S. HORRID.

Fred's Brim said...

IsonGarner has settled in. I hope we can sneak another run or two

Steve Sax said...

Nice 10-pitch AB by Ellis, but unfortunately results in an out

Paul said...

Well at least it was a 10 pitch at bat.

Fred's Brim said...

It's good to see AJ making solid contact again the last few games

Cliff Beefpile said...

I'm about to make solid contact with some booze right now. Mmmm scotchy scotch.

spank said...

SVS!!!

YOWSA

Cliff Beefpile said...

Amish Bill Murray with the diving catch in left!

Fred's Brim said...

wow great catch, SVS!

Fred's Brim said...

good inning, Zack

Cliff Beefpile said...

C'mon, Puig!

spank said...

AH FUCK.

Fred's Brim said...

FB nervous again

Steve Sax said...

3-2 through five. Not feeling good about this

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's never easy, is it?

spank said...

KRUK AND SCHILLING ARE THE WORST. STRAIGHT THE FUCK UP.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Zack

Paul said...

For the love of Lasorda get some Geico now boys!

Fred's Brim said...

@Stubbsy 9:00pm I loved Vin's line from last night: "Of course, if the Dodgers did something easily, it wouldn't be the Dodgers."

You don't usually hear commentary like that from Vin

Paul said...

That was Ball four damn it.

Fred's Brim said...

dangit, Matty Ks on ball 4

Paul said...

Please get a hit Hanley.

Paul said...

Throwing all high fastballs. Until that breaking ball. Not sure how Hanley stayed alive.

Franklin Stubbs said...

If anyone would know, it's Vinny.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Is it me or have we not heard much from HanRam lately?

Paul said...

Fuck. This is gonna not end good.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

damn, that cutter thing gets Hanley too

Fred's Brim said...

slider I guess, kinda looks like what Clayton throws

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

are we done scoring runs?

spank said...

NICE GREINKE. PENCE HAD NO CLUE ON THAT STRIKEOUT

Fred's Brim said...

@DBT sure feels like it. I hope we can scratch another one somehow

spank said...

GREINKE'S OVERHAND CURVE REMINDS ME OF GAGNE'S.

Fred's Brim said...

great job, Zack!

Fred's Brim said...

He's over 100 pitches now

Fred's Brim said...

oh man our bullpen is giving me hives. Will Donnie go with Baez in the 8th?

spank said...

BEST LEAVE GREINKE IN. HE CAN GO ONE MORE INNING.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

no more runs... hope our pitchin can hold them

Orel said...

What do you guys think? Final score 3-2?

Fred's Brim said...

AJ Ks
IsonGarner over 100 pitches and batting second in the 8th
Zack was on deck behind AJ. Maybe he'll be coming back out.
I don't like the idea of leaving him in.
I don't like the idea of taking him out.

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel goddamit I sure hope so

Fred's Brim said...

Howell and Wilson readying in case Greinke needs help

Fred's Brim said...

IsonGarner still in

spank said...

CLASSIC OLD SCHOOL. FUCK YEAH. GOTTA LEAVE THE STARTERS IN TO PITCH.

Paul said...

Come on Zack.

Orel said...

C'mon Greinke. Let's go Zack to Kenley

spank said...

THROW HIM A FASTBALL

spank said...

BANG

Paul said...

Sit down you big turd.

Orel said...

"I think the last pitcher that swung that hard was Babe Ruth." —Vin, on Bumgarner's swinging K

spank said...

(FAINTS)

Paul said...

That was scary

Fred's Brim said...

oh sweet jesus
keep it in the park please

Paul said...

Bear down Zack.

Orel said...

117 pitches for ZG

spank said...

BLANCO THINKS HE'S WADE BOGGS ALREADY,ARGUING AND SHIT.

Paul said...

Way to gut that out!

Fred's Brim said...

great fucking job, Zack!

Orel said...

Whoops 118

Fred's Brim said...

now drown that elbow in a fucking glacier of ice

Paul said...

Mr. Waaaaaade Boggs didn't get it done.

Steve Sax said...

Hell of an outing for Zack tonight. Wow.

3-2 LA, mid-8

Fred's Brim said...

who the hell do we have to pitch the 9th? Kenley's had somewhere around 40 pitches the last 2 nights. Let's get 7 insurance runs so we don't have to worry about it

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Darwin Barney is our best PH? fuck me

Paul said...

Dammit! So close

Orel said...

Molly Knight getting flak on Twitter. First time for everything

spank said...

CHARLES ALMOST JUMPED OUT OF HIS GRAVE ON THAT ONE.

Paul said...

Another homerun please.

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul We have got the great Wade Boggs' pants!

Orel said...

GIMLI!

Paul said...

Justin Fuckin Turner!!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

BOOM!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

YEAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!! Fuck you, Bumbarner!

Steve Sax said...

holy shit, Justin fucking Turner ladies and gentlemen!

spank said...

WTF? FUCK YEAH!

Fred's Brim said...

FUCK YES JAAAAAYTEEEEEEEE

Steve Sax said...

Wow, this is an incredible Turner performance against Ashley. I can't believe it.

Paul said...

That felt good.

Fred's Brim said...

seriously though, who's pitching the 9th? Barney?

spank said...

MART HART

Paul said...

Hey Puig what the hell

Cliff Beefpile said...

Puig swinging at shit two feet out of the strike zone.

Fred's Brim said...

Vin kind of half predicting we blow this lead

Orel said...

Adrian still doing the first-pitch swinging thing, huh

Paul said...

Show me the way to go home. I'm tired and I wanna go to bed. I had a little drink about an hour ago and it went right to my head.

Fred's Brim said...

Kenley coming in? This is no good. You're gonna kill him, Donnie

Paul said...

Bring in the gimp!

Fred's Brim said...

FB extra nervous

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Kenley, you can do this

Cliff Beefpile said...

No confirmation yet that Mart Hart was knofed in the robs during a dust-up in right field pavilion in the 7th inning.

Paul said...

That last pitch didn't make me feel great.

spank said...

KENLEY OVERTHROWING. RELAX MOFO.

spank said...

NICE PLAY DEE!

OH WAIT..

Paul said...

Nice play Barney!!

Fred's Brim said...

Fucking hell, nice snag by Barney. Turner and probably Dee (especially last night's Dee) don't make that play

Paul said...

Fuck. Double play please please please.

spank said...

KEEP CALM Y'ALL. KENLEY'S GOT THIS.


(PRAYS)

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy Kenley!
