spank said...

is the AJ GT strike still on going?

spank said...

@ Orel

I finally got one in. Felt like i was playing Assassin's Circle.

Orel said...

Not sure about the GT. More worried about his teammates

Orel said...

hahaha

Orel said...

Wonder if Chooch got booed during introductions?

Orel said...

Fowler leadoff single. Gonna be a long night

Orel said...

Yeah we're not making it to the World Series this year

Orel said...

1-0 Cubs after 1

Orel said...

A four-pitch walk to Montero. GREAT

Steve Sax said...

Carlos Ruiz' walk up song is Phil Collins (in the air tonight).

How old is this guy?

Steve Sax said...

I'm at the Stadium btw

Orel said...

Chooch HBP!

Orel said...

Chooch is 49 years old I believe

spank said...

2 on for Reddick. Fuck this guy

Orel said...

Giants winning of course. Fuckers

spank said...

it's tied

Orel said...

Which in itself is a victory. Except not.

Orel said...

Smallball tonight. 2-1 Dodgers

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

FYI, Rizzo Report on the radio says TBD is going Sunday. Maeda gets pushed back to Monday for extra days rest and Roberts likes how Maeda's stuff works in Coors.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Chooch looks like an older version of old Maury Wills

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Cmon JJ Reddick hit a three pointer!

Orel said...

Thanks DBT. Post updated

Orel said...

Reddick strikes out with the bases loaded to end the 3rd

Orel said...

Norris has settled down

Orel said...

Howie with the runs-scoring GIDP. 3-1 Dodgers

Orel said...

Of course Corey follows with a double

spank said...

dang. 3-1 Dodgers. who knew with Chooch.

Steve Sax said...

Reddick is very bad

Meanwhile the Cubs are threatening in the top of the fifth

Steve Sax said...

Other Phil Collins choices that Carlos Ruiz could have used as his walk up song

You can't hurry Karros
Land of Confusion


...and then he gets a base hit

Steve Sax said...

Reddick is up

Please get a XBH

Orel said...

ugh

Steve Sax said...

Reddick is wrong in the head at this stage

Steve Sax said...

This organist makes the stadium sound like a hockey game

Orel said...

We should be winning 9-2 by now. Of course this will bite us in the ass later

spank said...

Baez in. That's a wrap.

spank said...

Cubs announcer called Seager Night Moves. Motherfucker stole my Seager nickname

spank said...

Cubs dont telecast games on WGN no more. when did this happen? ABC now.

Steve Sax said...

Dieter just played the song from The Legend of Zelda

Awesome

spank said...

Blanton's a beast!

Orel said...

AGon!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

A-THE-FUCK-GONE!!!!

Orel said...

This smells like a one-run victory

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Hopefully a one run victory for the Dodgers

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

What the hell just happened?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is that Reddick on first base?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Reddick is the kiss of death

Orel said...

Reddick comes through when it doesn't count. Puig could teach him a lesson or two

Orel said...

Kenley leadoff double. Great

Orel said...

Tie game

spank said...

Gotta blame that on Chooch. Catch the fucking ball.

spank said...

Even though the ball was 200mph

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

He's no AJ Ellis

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

The curse of AJ Ellis continues

Orel said...

extras

Orel said...

Yup. 6-4 Cubs

Orel said...

This feels like the real Dodgers to me

Orel said...

No surprise here. Dodgers lose

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

Have they swept us yet?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Hope that loose coocb doesn't keep dropping Jansen's balls all year

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Orel said...

Urias has 1st & 3rd with no out. Off to a great start

Orel said...

Urias limits the damage to one run but burns 30 pitches

Orel said...

^31 pitches

Orel said...

All hail Corey! Solo HR ties it at 1

Steve Sax said...

Reddick changed his walk up song to Careless Whisper. LOVE IT

Steve Sax said...

Same result though

QuadSevens said...

I noticed that music for Reddick too. Maybe he's hoping for some good mojo with his bat.

QuadSevens said...

Joc fooled by the cambio.

Orel said...

56 pitches through 3

Orel said...

Utley RBI makes it 2-1 Dodgers. Can't wait for Kenley to blow this lead!

Orel said...

3-1 on a Turner RBI!

Orel said...

More men left on base

Steve Sax said...

It's the Cubs bat day promotion

Steve Sax said...

Pedro Baez. Not a good throw

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Braves tomohawking the Giants 3-1

Orel said...

Back to 2 up!

Steve Sax said...

Thanks to Matt Kemp of the Braves for hitting the 3-run blast for the win over SF

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Bison power!

spank said...

Dodgers win 1-0. Take two of three from the Cubbies. Dayum!

Orel said...

!!!

QuadSevens said...

Puig placed on revocable waivers. Let's see how this goes.

Fred's Brim said...

Still not sure how we went 4-2 last week. That just means we'll go 2-4 vs Jesus Colorado and SD
