Game 151 Thread: Sept. 23 vs. DBacks, 7p


We've secretly replaced Lucille Bluth's regular Zack Greinke with Curly Fries. Let's see if she notices.

Zack Greinke Carlos Frias (5-5, 4.27) vs. Chase Anderson (6-6, 4.52)

Jesus, what an awful week. After suffering through a four-game losing streak, Dodger fans got the news this morning that reliable stopper Zack Greinke has been scratched from tonight's start due to calf soreness. Sure, that doesn't sound all that serious, but coming on the heels of everything else that's happened, it feels like a good, solid kick to the nads. Curly Fries gets the spot start. Fun!

There will be FOUR Sons in attendance tonight (Sax, AC, Dusty, and yours truly). Second time this season we've managed to scrape that many of us together. Come say hi! We'll be the surly guys* double-fisting beers.

*Curly Fries...surly guys...there's something there, but I can't quite get to it.

Alanna talking on pregame saying she is jumping off the Magic Number bandwagon an will discuss the post season when the division is clinched. Well, it's about GD time. Sax and I were bringing up all of this talk from the so called pundits after the gnat sweep. All of the sudden they're talking about having time to play bench players and rest up the starters for the Post Season. If I remember correctly Sax and I took a WTF attitude. After all, this is the Dodgers. Nothing ain't done til it's done with this team. Now after they have lost 4 in a row and have been stuck on the 'Magic Number' of 7 for what seems like eons it seems that the people who should have been on top of this all along are finally taking notice. Manage the team for what it is Mutt...a mad dash to the finish line with time running out pretty damn fast.


On a more important note...I was so sorry to hear about Yogi's passing. One of the great personalities in our beloved game I think he was loved by all. RIP Mr. Berra and thank you for being you.

Chutley powers out the first pitch of the game...1-0 Boys...

karen said...

Goldshit goes yard on Curly's 1st pitch in 2nd...1-1

Fred's Brim said...

aaaaand the Giants are up 2-0

Fred's Brim said...

I am generally not a panicker, and I won't do that here, but for chrissakes this is baseball, it's not finished until this shit is finished. godDAMMIT FB is pissed!

Fred's Brim said...

nice bunt, Pete

Fred's Brim said...

Is there any chance Vin calls Goldschmidt "Goldsmith" as a remnant of some WW2 anti-German sentiment?

Fred's Brim said...

and me watching tonight means we'll lose again

Fred's Brim said...

Jimmy clears the pitcher with a walk

Fred's Brim said...

Frias bunting with 2 outs for some reason
and he does it poorly, a pop up to the pitcher

Orel said...

Wow, quite the opinion piece from Karen! Can't say I disagree.

Fred's Brim said...

and now Vin is talking about teams who had big leads late and blew them
if Vin is worried, I am worried

Fred's Brim said...

despite the hanger that went for a flyout, a good inning for Frias

Fred's Brim said...

Bax muff the foul pop, Bob Seger with another chance

Fred's Brim said...

and takes advantage by striking out

Fred's Brim said...

this ump has a strange strike zone

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian Ks

Orel said...

Did Vin do a nice piece on Yogi?

Fred's Brim said...

5 straight Ks for Anderson

Fred's Brim said...

why is Mart Hart in the second row?

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel I missed the first inning and a half and have been on and off mute. He was talking about Yogi striking out 12 times in the whole 1950 season, saying some guys strike out that many times during the anthem

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, Thomas? That beard isn't going to make you pitch more like Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

Frias did a nice job for 4 innings

Fred's Brim said...

at least we cleared Guerrero

karen said...

Ok...I'm baaack...I know, you guys didn't even know I was gone!!

Orel...Yes. Vin did a beautiful piece on Yogi (as only Vin can do).

Fred's Brim said...

Baez in now for the 6th

Fred's Brim said...

hi karen, I missed you

karen said...

I'm digging Yaz's new catcher's mask.

Fred's Brim said...

karen said...

Right back atcha FB!!!

Fred's Brim said...

OK LETS GET SOME GODDAMN RUNS!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

wow we are awful

Fred's Brim said...

damnation
was that our look at the game?

Hideo Nomo said...

We aren't losing, but it sure as fuck feels like we're losing.

HI GUYS!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Goldschmidt is from Delaware? Is Delino now a fan?

Fred's Brim said...

HI GNOMES!

We aren't losing? Are you sure?

Fred's Brim said...

Baez hits 100 to get Goldschmidt, Avilan coming in

karen said...

Corey Seager has become quite the heartthrob in my house. My daughter, whom may I add was born in the middle of the 1981 World Series (yes such an exciting time lying flat on my back in the hospital after an emergency c-section trying to cheer on my team and sounding like a bunch of cats were fighting...great drugs though) and I'm positive she was switched at birth and I came home with someone else's kid cause no freaking way could I give birth to someone who doesn't love baseball and now all of the sudden, Corey's up in the Bigs and I've been instructed to let her know when he's up so she can run out of her room to look at him.

Fred's Brim said...

GODDAMMIT I hate these bullpen games. You know one (or many) of these assholes are going to fail. The chances of everyone being perfect (which they have to be the way we are hitting) is so slim

Fred's Brim said...

hehe good stuff, Karen, whatever it takes to make them fans. Can she get him to hit a homer next time?

Fred's Brim said...

a baserunner?

Fred's Brim said...

CC up to hit for SVS
Carl apparently has a sore shoulder?
Is the whole goddamn team hurt?

karen said...

FB...So far my nekked moonlight dancing this season has been what I guess we should call not a very inspiring sight for our team (the fact that I'm in my 50's could possibly have something to do with that) but the daughter is 33 and beautiful...so maybe it's time to pass the torch and see what kind of mojo she can give Corey!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Peralta nearly makes a great catch

Fred's Brim said...

@karen haha gotta find the magic somewhere! Spank's thong can't hold out much longer

Fred's Brim said...

wow
we
stink

Fred's Brim said...

Joc trying to win tonight's and last night's game with 1 swing

Fred's Brim said...

sad

karen said...

Dodgers with only 1 hit?? And that was Chutley's 1st pitch homer in the 1st inning? Am I missing something here????

Fred's Brim said...

shadows? marine layer? sucking?

Fred's Brim said...

The Dodgers have already send Kenley to Colorado for the next series

Fred's Brim said...

Hatcher in

yaayyyy

karen said...

FB...What they need is a Slump Buster a la Mark Graces description of the sure fire way to break a slump. Have you heard that story???

Fred's Brim said...

Mart moved forward a row, that has to be a good sign, right?

Fred's Brim said...

@karen I definitely know that term. The whole team needs one/many

karen said...

Oh Yeah!!! Jroll with the bunt single...

Fred's Brim said...

David Hernandez was really good once, not sure what happened to him.
But I am sure he'll do just fine tonight

Rollins with a nice drag bunt single

Fred's Brim said...

Torreyes?

Whyyyyyyyy?

Fred's Brim said...

Torreyes donnies Rollins over to second

Steve Sax said...

Torreyes? Or torreyno?

Successful sac bunt.

Should note that Torreyes autocorrects to "tormented"

Steve Sax said...

Chase! 2-1.

Fred's Brim said...

UTZ!

Fred's Brim said...

Whole Team

karen said...

FB...I heard Mark Grace explain that on the Jim Rome show years ago and it was one of the funniest, irreverent things I had ever heard! I don't know how I didn't wreck my car I was laughing so hard!

Fred's Brim said...

Mark Grace is an ass but that was a good story

Fred's Brim said...

COREY! Karen's daughter is dancing!

Fred's Brim said...

Stay away from Conte, Corey, he'll wreck your hamstring

karen said...

I MISSED COREY'S HOMER!!! Had to take the devil puppy out to potty...

Fred's Brim said...

Dre Ks for the 4th time, Spank is laughing somewhere

Fred's Brim said...

devil puppy has no respect for dreamboat rookies

karen said...
