Game 122 Thread: Aug. 22 @ Astros, 4p

Zack Greinke (13-2, 1.58) vs. Scott Kazmir (6-8, 2.43)

Behind Greinke, who is riding an 11-start unbeaten streak, the Dodgers look to rebound from a complete shitstorm of an outing yesterday against the Astros where NO ONE* GOT A GOD DAMN HIT. Thus, we're all a little salty with a strong chance of having hangovers. And that nasty taste of a shit sandwich in our mouths. I'm anxious to wash away the bad taste with a nice IPA and another excellent Greinke outing!

Roenicke Watch: 0-3

Greinke will right the ship for us today.

QuadSevens said...

I had posted saying that Greinke would get a hit, but I forgot he's not batting today.

Orel said...

Then we might get no-hit again.

Alex Cora said...

Utley watch 0-1

Alex Cora said...

Nice dusty with the 2 pm comment. Yikes

Orel said...

Starling!

Fred's Brim said...

let's get a goddamn win tonight, fuckwads

Fred's Brim said...

FUCK

Fred's Brim said...

booze status: only in my mind

Cliff Beefpile said...

gnats lose on a walk-off. Now score some runs, dummies! I swear, if they get no-hit by the guy with the world's cheesiest moustache...

Fred's Brim said...

hey, that was almost a hit

QuadSevens said...

Two quick outs in the first.

QuadSevens said...

Turner's slump continues.

Fred's Brim said...

we're locked in

Fred's Brim said...

what are the chances Turner's trip to the DL was somehow juice related and he's not on a cycle right now so he's a little off?

Fred's Brim said...

wonderful start

Dusty Baker said...

We're supposed to GET hits, not give them up.

Fred's Brim said...

also, what are the chances the bats are protesting Bundy's benching by sucking?

Dodger conspiracy theories, I've got plenty of them

Dusty Baker said...

You been binge-watching X-Files all weekend, FB?

Dusty Baker said...

ANd turner bobbles it to allow a run when we could have had an easy out at 1B. I may be over the JT love affair. Plus he's a juicer, or so I've heard recently from someone somewhere.

Fred's Brim said...

GODDAMMIT!

I miss Uribe
what the hell is wrong with Turner?

Fred's Brim said...

he has no competition for time at third and he falls apart

Fred's Brim said...

idiots in the outfield, lucky to have caught that one

Dusty Baker said...

That god damn Eddie Gaedel guy hits a triple and JT's error gives up the first run of the game. It may be all the Strohs need today. 1-0 after one.

Dusty Baker said...

J.P. Hoornstra @jphoornstra
Justin Turner has made three errors since he recorded his last hit. #Astros lead, 1-0.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck everything.

Dusty Baker said...

Surliness factor: 8.5

karen said...

Well, we can't get 'em out at the plate...hope Yaz's arm holds up...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Good thing we got rid of Calypso/Uribear.

Dusty Baker said...

You got struck tha fuck out, Chase.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Chase Utley. AKA the trade we needed six years ago. Now, not so much.

Fred's Brim said...

hey missed that half inning, did we get a hit?

Dusty Baker said...

History fact: Grover Cleveland was president the last time we got a hit.

Dusty Baker said...

^I was even intending to answer your question, but I did, FB.

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck a dude named after a cheese

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck a dude named after a Muppet

Fred's Brim said...

I don't think the SNLA strike zone thing is real because it's never different from the ump's call. I think somebody just puts up a graphic that is close to where it was but just enough to confirm the call

Fred's Brim said...

fuck Windows 10 upgrades

Fred's Brim said...

fuck

Fred's Brim said...

getting clowned

Cliff Beefpile said...

This whole road trip is just one long, drawn-out dick punch. Fuck a pitcher who's named after an overwrought Led Zeppelin song! I'll try the FB approach, see if it works.

Dusty Baker said...

You're getting clowned by an OS upgrade? What are you, my mom?

Neeebs' mom uses Macs.

Dusty Baker said...

"This whole road trip is just one long, drawn-out dick punch."

That PGT writes itself...

Dusty Baker said...

Roll technically gets a hit but is thrown out trying to stretch it into a double.

Just cannot get something going.

karen said...

Was it the Carter Administration the last time we won a review?

Dusty Baker said...

Walter Mondale would have called him safe.

Dusty Baker said...

Then Puig gets a "hit" but is ruled an error instead.

Cliff Beefpile said...

When is a hit still an out? When the Dodgers do it. Jeez, as ridiculous as it sounds, I'm switching over to the Raider game in hopes of finding a team with a better shot at winning.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, the Raider game is on? #pictureinpicture

karen said...

I am ashamed to admit this but I'm beginning to miss the Ned Colleti regime...

Fred's Brim said...

they'll review that, foul

QuadSevens said...

Utley gets his first hit.

Fred's Brim said...

Ron Roenicke can get bent

Dusty Baker said...

Chase Utely with a triple, his first hit as a Dodger. Ron Roenicke was like, damn I forgot what I was supposed to be doing out here.

Fred's Brim said...

of course we're gonna lose a base

QuadSevens said...

Now can we bring him in?

Fred's Brim said...

the Roenicke funk sends another runner away

Dusty Baker said...

Update: Not a triple.

QuadSevens said...

Sac fly and a walk. Guerrero up now.

Dusty Baker said...

@Q7

No.

QuadSevens said...

Chased ball 4 and we get nothing. Ugh!

QuadSevens said...

@Dusty I should have guessed that.

QuadSevens said...

Love the VW commercials with the old ladies. They crack me up.

QuadSevens said...

Rollins got his double!

QuadSevens said...

Puig sacrifice and Turner drives in Rollins. We're on the board!

QuadSevens said...

AGon with a single now. As Steiner pointed out, we had 2 hits on our last two games and now have 3 in the inning.

Fred's Brim said...

just give it right back

karen said...

Okay Family...I'm sure most of you have noticed my lack of dancing naked in the moonlight this season. But I can't neglect my gift any longer. At the risk of the SWAT team being called out by my neighbors again, I am prepared to make the sacrifice. I have a very special family ritual that goes back many generations in our Big Book of Guaranteed Wins for the Home Team that nothing else seems to insure victory.

Any chants, burning of incense and virgin sacrifices will be greatly appreciated.

Fred's Brim said...

goddamit, gotta pitch better, gotta do everything better
unacceptable

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Dre

how many 3-pitch Ks have we had the past week?

Fred's Brim said...

jesus, it's like they are trying to get the ABs over as fast as they can
If they were better hitters, they would ground out on the first pitch but they can barely make contact

Fred's Brim said...

really, pinch hit Dre for Hernandez and move SVS to center?

Fred's Brim said...

@Gnomes, seeing Cincy as the next part of the road trip, does your 0-5 go to 0-8? or will we win one of those?

Dusty Baker said...

We go to the 8th. Dodgers down 3-1. Hurry up with the streaking and the chanting and shit, Karen!

Fred's Brim said...

Neshek makes us look like clowns but if he was a Dodger, he'd be Brandon League

Fred's Brim said...

Spongy out, fucked by his defense and offense

Cliff Beefpile said...

So much of what Donnie does is stupid, but you'd think just once, out of sheer dumb luck one of his dumb maneuvers would work. But nope. While you're at it, Karen, can we do some voodoo stuff and raise Walter Alston from the dead?

Fred's Brim said...

good inning from JP

Fred's Brim said...

Joc trying his best to tie it, will probably K

Fred's Brim said...

lines out sharply to center actually

Fred's Brim said...

Utz somehow beats out the double play ball

Fred's Brim said...

he probably rewrecked his ankle doing it

karen said...

No Devil for Chase...Hope still burns eternal....

Fred's Brim said...

there it is, Gnomes's sphincter only has 1 more day to go

Fred's Brim said...

wack shit

Dusty Baker said...

Altuve is the new lead Mini Sirloin Burger.

karen said...

Dre looked so bad on that swing, I support anything Spanky sees fit to do with him...I'm thinking first season of Sopranos when Christopher made grand use of the meat grinder...

Dusty Baker said...

Dre looked absolutely out of his mind in the shitty kind of way.

spank said...

i'd put Dre's head in a vice,Pesci styles. #Casino

spank said...

by the way this game was caca
