Game 162 Thread: Sept. 28 vs. Rockies, 1p

Zack Greinke (16-8, 2.74) vs. Christian Bergman (3-4, 5.29)

Didn't we just beat this asshole?

Well, ladies, gentlemen, and Delino, today is it: the last day of the regular season [(cries) cc: Mr. F]. Which means Greinke is only scheduled to go 4-5 innings max, ailing players like HanRam and Dee will have the day off, and you will see a lot of people you had forgotten about -- or tried to forget about -- and/or can't spell their name, playing out the game given that it is as devoid of meaning as an Adam Sandler movie.

However, there will be some levity on the day; as tradition dictates, players take on the roles of managers and coaches which is always good for some snark in this space. Juan Uribe will manage and Kershaw will be the pitching coach. Rumor has it that Ryu will be the bullpen coach if they can work out the language barrier. Fun times.

SoSG Nomo will make a rare appearance at the Yard, so hunt him down and buy him adult beverages. Team Killeen will be there as well in some bourgeois seats. SoSG Dusty is a late scratch but will be tracking the game nonetheless.

There's also some meaningful ball being played around the league so be sure to follow that, too.  Let's get this meaningless win and the series sweep to end the regular season on a winning note to carry the mojo through to the playoffs, which begin Friday, October 3.

karen said...

HAPPY ANNIVESARY SISTAH AND STUBBS!!

Orel said...

Jordan Zimmermann no-hitter!

Orel said...

karen said...

Great catch in left to get the no-no for Zimmerman.

karen said...

Boys getting the hated Cards in NLDS.

spank said...

Epale and good morning,sons,daughters,bishes and whores.

karen said...

Hanley wearing Eli's number 29 as todays bench coach.

karen said...

Hola Spank!!!

karen said...

Matty hits number 25. 2-0 Blue.

MKW is happy!!

Steve Sax said...

Pirates lose, so they play the WC game at home, hosting SF. Strangely Pitttsburgh threw Cole today so I am not sure who they will pitch in the WC game.

Orel said...

I think Vin just called Culberson "Culby"

Dusty Baker said...

2-1 bottom of third. Get the feeling we can break this open before we put in our shitty relievers.

Steve Sax said...

Highlight in the A's @ TEX game of fans, on fan appreciation day, winning a Beltre signed baseball. "I want to thank the rangers for not losing 100 games", says the older gentleman on camera. "We paid a lot of money for these seats, and we got it back with this ball!" says his son.

Sarcasm and entrepreneurial spirit, together!

karen said...

5-1 Blue on Agon's blast.

You called it, DB!!

Fred's Brim said...

eFBeezy finally in the heezy

Fred's Brim said...

just in time to see Adrian's homer and Matty get taken out of the game after the bloop single

Fred's Brim said...

Karen mentioned Hanley wearing Eli's 29, Uribe is wearing Lasorda's #2. Any other number exchanges?

Dusty Baker said...

FB!

Dusty Baker said...

Those are the ones I've seen, FB. Keeping my eyes out for more.

Fred's Brim said...

Is Pedersen wearing glaucoma glasses?

karen said...

FB...I think Uribe originally had on Mattingly's jersey then switched to Lasorda's.

karen said...

In his pregame interview Mattingly said he'd like to see Kid K have to go out to the mound and try and calm Zack down.

spank said...

Had to put the game on to see these glaucoma glasses.

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, that would be great, just have Clayton go out there and shoot the shit until the ump comes out to break it up

Fred's Brim said...

Is this our last chance to listen to Vin? Will he be doing home radio during the playoffs?

Fred's Brim said...

Man, Beckett's no hitter seems so long ago

Orel said...

Great question, FB. Dodgers will probably put out a press release with all that info once game times have been announced

Fred's Brim said...

Greinke with a double

Fred's Brim said...

MART HART DUNDEE

Fred's Brim said...

Please take Yasiel after this AB

Fred's Brim said...

I am half hoping Uribe will make Yasiel play some other positions. It'd be funny to see him play SS

spank said...

That's not a hat. This is a hat.

karen said...

Did anyone else see Zack's hair when he took off his helmet? I swear dude doesn't sweat.

Orel said...

Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick 19s

Bernadina in, Puig out.

spank said...

Suddenly the Dodger telecast online has become a rave.

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe should go out now to take out Greinke, just to mess with him

Fred's Brim said...

Great job and season, Zach

spank said...

Pedersen uses eye black. can't remember the last dodger to use that

Fred's Brim said...

OK now take out CC and AJ please

karen said...

AJ out. Droop in.

Dusty Baker said...

Mfranklin Stubbs?

spank said...

Moops

stream keeps cutting out so so am i. Later gators.

Fred's Brim said...

Seeya, Spank! Enjoy your Sunday

Steve Sax said...

6-1 so far?

Mattingly might not have a job soon

karen said...

See ya in the Post Season Spank!

Steve Sax said...

Strangely, Lasorda's jersey fits Uribe a little snug

Fred's Brim said...

Roger Bernadina?!?

Dusty Baker said...

Are you back in friendly territory, Sax?

Dusty Baker said...

Yes, Roger Bernadina!

9-1

Steve Sax said...

Still in enemy territory, Dusty

Greg said...

I'm sitting next to someone who apparently paid for half of my seat too.

Fred's Brim said...

Did Baez pitch himself off the postseason roster with is 2/3 of an inning?

Fred's Brim said...

Butera needs one of those megamind helmets

Fred's Brim said...

or Gazoo

Fred's Brim said...

and I missed it, was it Uribe who came out to bring in Coulombe?

Fred's Brim said...

Rogearvin with a 4 RBI day!
I hope that doesn't give Donnie any ideas

Fred's Brim said...

Coulombe ain't gonna be playing past today, that's for sure. Not sure why he's still in there to be honest

Fred's Brim said...

Kenley in to close out a great regular season and get in some game action before a few off days

Fred's Brim said...

100Ks for the season for Kenley

Fred's Brim said...

101! Good guys win 10-5!

Cliff Beefpile said...

See you all for the playoffs!

spank said...

69!

Dusty Baker said...

Playoffs? Playoffs?

Hideo Nomo said...

Home from the yard. GREAT final game. I missed the rally since I was in line to have my kid run the bases, but at least I got to set foot on the hallowed field.

Didn't win shit for Fan Appreciation Day.

Fred's Brim said...

I appreciate you, Gnomes

Hideo Nomo said...

Aw, thanks, man!

spank said...

Fred's Brim said...
