Game 106 Thread: August 4 @ Phillies, 4p

What's the bigger story here? J-Roll? Or Wood?

Jimmy Rollins, franchise hit leader, returns to Philadelphia for the first time tonight. Alex Wood, potential starter coming off his career-worst WHIP (1.408), pitches in a Dodger uniform for the first time tonight. So which one is the bigger story? Alex? James?

Or even Alex James? Well, Girls and Boys, today's game is exciting, no matter how you slice it (not the jelly roll; the metaphorical "it" that would refer to today's game. Though I suppose someone did indeed slice said jelly roll, up above...). We're three games up on the Giants, and facing a 41-65 cellar-dwelling team might be a good way for us to put even more space between us. I'm all set for a wild ride, nonetheless. Whoo hoo!

Already?? 1 pitch...1 double?

karen said...

Vagiants up by 1 going to 2nd in hotlanta...

MR.F said...

Vagiants already winning? Modern Life is Rubbish. Oh well, given the vagiants schedule this month, maybe they can Fade Away from us in the standings. We just had runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out and couldn't score? I hope This Is the Low point of the game. Hope Jimmy can Turn It Up where he spent the Best Days of his career. I'd watch this game in my Country House, if I had one, but I guess I'll make do with the game thread to Entertain Me.

Also if a Dodger fan is driving a Volkswagon bug, does that mean he's a Beetlebum?

karen said...

Bravos have tied Vagiants 1-1 in 4th...

karen said...

C'mon Dre...get er done and Spankster with allow you to sleep soundly again tonight!!!

MR.F said...

Dre singles Howie in!

karen said...

I'm not sure if tying it is going to get you a full night sleep...You gotta score more to stay off Spanky's shit list...

MR.F said...

Rollins 2-3 so far with a double and a single.

karen said...

Hey Mr. F....So good to have you on board tonight!!!!

karen said...

Vagiantes ahead 2-1 in 6th...

Fred's Brim said...

it's going to be one of those nights, isn't it?

Fred's Brim said...

jesus Guerrero, you gotta be better at getting that double play started

karen said...

FB...Yep...the ones where I'm still awake when the sun starts coming up.

Fred's Brim said...

jesus Guerrero, you gotta be better at not striking out on 3 pitches

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, where you fret over the missed opportunities and wasted pitching performance vs a last place team? I get that

Fred's Brim said...

how did that not go out?

Fred's Brim said...

nice range, AG2

Fred's Brim said...

I think we filled up on cheesesteaks on our day off yesterday

Fred's Brim said...

this is when it all falls apart

Fred's Brim said...

WHAT IN THE HELL WAS THAT?!?!?!

Fred's Brim said...

ball slips out of Wood's hand at the start of his motion and goes towards the first base line, Choofuckerooch scores from second
Umps trying to decide if it's a balk or a wild pitch

Fred's Brim said...

they're calling it a balk somehow

Fred's Brim said...

which is good for us (temporarily)

Fred's Brim said...

and he walks him anyway
Get him out of there, Donnie
Day late and several batters short
Perralta coming in to ruin the rest of this game

spank said...

shit. i thought the game was at 7pm. i'm all whacked

Fred's Brim said...

and there it is, Franco a grand slam
Perralta can go to hell, how does he get meaningful innings

fuck
this

spank said...

looks like i fucked things up by commenting. dammit

Fred's Brim said...

@spank, I wish Perralta got the gametime wrong too

Fred's Brim said...

Wood pitched OK, Donnie let him get into a mess and Peralta backed up the toilet

Fred's Brim said...

Peralta comes off the mound gingerly
I think he tweaked his foot or ankle or something

Fred's Brim said...

But he Ks Howard so maybe it's a good thing


BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

spank said...

Muttingly being Muttingly.

karen said...

Such a big deal was made about Peralta and his experience and upside in the clubhouse for all the kids in the bullpen and all that shit. I never got it. This guy has brought nothing but grief to this team. Why in God's world does he get such positive press?

Don't get it. Don't get it. Don't get it.

Ans while I'm at it, I really hate the guy...

karen said...

^^And

Fred's Brim said...

Jimmy gets fucked by a low strike zone

Fred's Brim said...

could have used a nice single there

karen said...

Didn't look like a strike to me...

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, stupid!

karen said...

Um...Just who was Yaz throwing that to??

Fred's Brim said...

Yaz isn't very good at throwing to second, is he?

Fred's Brim said...

we are shitbags tonight

karen said...

I keep expecting a G'night from you Mr. Brim!!! This is getting painful to watch...

Fred's Brim said...

hurry up so I can go to bed

Fred's Brim said...

almost there, karen
I am considering this my punishment for feeling to good about this team

Fred's Brim said...

^ too

Fred's Brim said...

is this where Yasmani hits a homer making us curse Avilan for that shitass run he gave up in the 8th?

Fred's Brim said...

too obvious, he flies out to the track instead

Fred's Brim said...

Gnite karen

karen said...

Night FB
