Series Thread (Games 160-162): Sept 30-Oct 2 @ Giants


Stay strong. Don't cry. *cries*

This is it, you guys. The final three games with this legendary voice bringing us the pure poetry of baseball. Last weekend was our farewell to him, this weekend is Vin's farewell to us. It is sure to be magnificent.

Beyond the emotion of Vin's final call, the actual games in this series are not entirely devoid of intrigue. The division is wrapped up, but the Dodgers still have a very slim chance to overtake the Nationals for home field advantage in the NLDS. More importantly though, they can play the role of spoiler for the Giants, knocking them out of the 2nd Wild Card spot (with some assistance from...*sigh*...the Cardinals).

Pull up a chair...

9/30, 7:15p: Rich Hill vs. Ashley Madison

10/1, 1p: Clayton Kershaw vs. TBD Ty Blach

10/2, 12p: Kenta Maeda vs. TBD (on no days rest) Matt Moore

Damn you gnomes. All it took was Vin and that freaking beautiful rainbow and I'm a crying, slobbering mess.

...and kick some evil NoCal ass.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

spank said...

Puig doubles in Night Moves. 1-0 Fuck The Gnats!

Dusty Baker said...

That redneck is already down 2-0. Don't look at the scoreboard, asshole Bum!

Dusty Baker said...

Hill is...not looking good.

spank said...

i leave for a second and the score is now tied. fucking Hill.

Dusty Baker said...

fucking Spank!

karen said...

Well shit Kike.

Dusty Baker said...

Kiké was safe by a mile but recklessly slid. Slide like three first downs past the bag. Focus, Blue. Focus.

spank said...

KeyKay done fucked up.

Dusty Baker said...

This one already smells like an old turd.

Fred's Brim said...

OK boys, get all your fuckwadery out now. This nonsense will be unacceptable after this weekend

Dusty Baker said...

You means us, or the team, FB?

spank said...

Beanball time

Dusty Baker said...

Stanford laying a big ole egg against Washington.

Dusty Baker said...

When is it NOT beanball time?

spank said...

@ Dusty

No shit and especially against the Gnats.. I'm off my GT game.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

It's still early. You can turn it around.

(hates)

Fred's Brim said...

@DB, I meant the team, we're more about the dipshittery, and we actually need more of that

spank said...

Puig's on base again. I hope he fucks with Muttgarner.

Dusty Baker said...

(looks)

Fred's Brim said...

FB way tired, may need an 11:30 pm coffee to get through this

Dusty Baker said...

Holy shit Puig! Wow.

karen said...

Just Puig'n

Fred's Brim said...

Oof, Hill slangin meatballs tonight. He's gonna be at his 60 pitches this inning

Fred's Brim said...

Maybe 1 more inning for Hill

Fred's Brim said...

Is that a naked Neeebs out on the field?

Fred's Brim said...

We're never gonna score again with this lineup

spank said...


Louis Skolnick batting for the Gnats.

Fred's Brim said...

Hehe good call Spank

Fred's Brim said...

Hill falls apart this inning

Fred's Brim said...

Can't get Belt out tonight

spank said...

Fuck off Oyster Pubes and sit the fuck down.

spank said...

I don't trust ANY of the Dodgers pitchers going into the playoffs. It's going to be interesting what they do and how I react.

Fred's Brim said...

Glad to see Chooch finding his way

spank said...

haha. Fucking horrible throw by Pagan. Awesome arm,fucktard. 2-0

spank said...

3-2

Fred's Brim said...

KIKEACCENT!

Fred's Brim said...

@spank, I am nervous about the pitching too. I am scared of Clayton's back melting into goop, Hill remembering he was trash just 2 years ago, Maeda being tired and our bullpen remembering they are Blanton and Baez and the rest.

Fred's Brim said...

Throw strikes, Brandon

And call them when they Steve thrown, blue

Fred's Brim said...

Steve? Are

Autocorrect be trippin

spank said...

Shit. McCarthy blowing balls. Sack up,holmes.

Fred's Brim said...

Jesus, hold a lead you assholes

spank said...

haha. Steve ain't even close to are.

spank said...

Bean this Waldo looking mofo!

spank said...

Fuck you Skolnick

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck, McCarthy pitching like he wants to watch the playoffs from home

spank said...

I think the Dodgers only pitch good when I don't watch the games because this is crap.

spank said...

GODDAMNIT

Fred's Brim said...

He ain't fooling any of these scrubs

spank said...

Godfuckingdamnit

Fred's Brim said...

Of course

spank said...

McCarthy just sealed his playoffs fate. Not good.

spank said...

No out still.

Fred's Brim said...

Vin I love you but I can't watch any more of this

spank said...

I NEED BOOZE.

Hideo Nomo said...

Not watching the game. Was Dave asleep while McCarthy was burning the place down and handing the Gnats a playoff spot?

spank said...

That's a wrap. I'm outta here.

Hideo Nomo said...

OH FFS

spank said...

pretty much,Gnomes

spank said...

My confidence in our pitching staff for the playoffs is 0 percent.

Dusty Baker said...

Less than zero. I have reverse confidence in the pitching.

Orel said...

Kershaw gives up his first hit in the 4th. Still no score

karen said...

I HATE DIABLO PAGEN

Orel said...

Yeah, he's a fuckhead

Orel said...

I know we've already clinched but these games are, let's say, not a confidence-booster

karen said...

No, they are not. Last night was torture.

karen said...

Geez. That inning had me nervous.

karen said...

shitdamnfuck

Orel said...

Wheels falling off. 3-0 Giants and you can bet Bochy is going to get Blach at least through 8 innings

Fred's Brim said...

Yay, i love a Mattingly-style shit streak to finish the season

Fred's Brim said...

Fucking fuckass Giants, go to hell

karen said...

Well said FB.

Fred's Brim said...

I hate that we are potentially giving them even an ounce of confidence going into the playoffs

Orel said...

WELL THAT SUCKED

Fred's Brim said...

Cut the shit!

spank said...

karen said...

Agree.

karen said...

(Original Orel) quoted Vin who was quoting Dr. Seuss at dinner last night..."Don't be sad because it's over. Smile because happened".

Doing my best Vinny.

karen said...

*it

Orel said...

awww

QuadSevens said...

Circus catch to retire Utley. Still no hits for us going to th bottom of the third.

QuadSevens said...

Time to crack a beer. Maybe it will change our luck.

Fred's Brim said...

Lose for Vin!

Fred's Brim said...

Get swept for Vin!

Fred's Brim said...

Disappoint everyone at Vin's last game ever for Vin!

QuadSevens said...

I'm calling the beer lucky. Giants didn't score and we now have two guys on base.

QuadSevens said...

Yaz with the 2 out RBI and we are on the board!

QuadSevens said...

Joc flys out to deep center to end the threat.

karen said...

Huh....some class coming from frisco way.

Huh.

Orel said...

Don't get shutout for Vin!

karen said...

Really happy to see YungJoc packing his posse today..Bro Champ and Blue his new puppy.

QuadSevens said...

Bullpen getting a workout today. Everyone is getting into this game.

QuadSevens said...

The production crew throwing a curve at Vinny on his last day. He forgot that he was doing the whole game on the radio.

spank said...

FB with some major snarkage.

QuadSevens said...

5-1 Gnats going to the bottom of the 8th.

Orel said...

As SoSG Sax would say, the Dodgers are sharp as a marble right now

QuadSevens said...

Puig showed that by booting a line drive single in left.

QuadSevens said...

Joc diving awkwardly nearly takes himself off the playoff roster.

karen said...

Good night Vinny....

Orel said...

"I have said enough for a lifetime. And for the last time, I wish you all a very pleasant good afternoon." —Vin

QuadSevens said...

Great message from Vin.

Orel said...

"This is Vin Scully, wishing you a very pleasant good afternoon, wherever you may be."

Fred's Brim said...

I missed the game but i am getting choked up just reading that

Thank you, Vin
