Game 43, Padres at Mariners

DMZ · May 16, 2008 at 6:10 pm · Filed Under Game Threads 

What’s the use of holding out a work-sore hand to catch some when it turns up empty– what? Sorry, I was listening to something while thinking of Wlad. Oh, hey, lineups are out.

Are you ready for BATTLE OF THE WORST TEAMS IN BASEBALL?

Offense:
Seattle: 11/14 in the AL in batting average, 14/14 in OBP, 9/14 in SLG
San Diego: 16/16 in the NL in AVG, 16/16 in OBP, 16/16 in SLG

Pitching with some defense
Seattle: 6/14 in K/9. 10/14 in AVG allowed, 12/14 in OBP allowed, 10/14 in SLG allowed
San Diego: 9/16 in K/9. 6/16 in AVG allowed, 5/16 in OBP allowed, 7/16 in SLG allowed

Defensive efficiency:
Seattle: 28/30. SD: 18/30

I can feel the excitement.

Young versus Batista!

Now watch, just to spite me, this’ll be a thrilling, defense-dominated low-scoring duel with both pitchers going a full nine innings before Ichiro wins the game in the ninth when he singles and then steals three bases on three pitches.

Sexson’s back, yayyy– wait, uhh…

CF-L Ichiro
2B-R Lopez
3B-R Beltre
LF-L Ibanez
1B-R Sexson
DH-L Clement
C-R Johjima
RF-R Balentien
SS-R Betancourt

San Diego fields
CF-L Gerut
2B-R Iguchi
RF-L Giles
1B-L A Gonzalez
DH-B Clark
3B-R Kouzmanoff
SS-R Greene
C-B Bard (both Padres catchers are switch hitters. That doesn’t happen often)
LF-R Hairston

    well, pre-game they will be honoring the Central University softballers …. that’s sort of interesting

  2. barabuski on May 16th, 2008 6:24 pm

    How are we going to win without Cairo? He’s obviously our most clutch player.

  3. Mike G. on May 16th, 2008 6:30 pm

    When McLaren cooked up this lineup casserole he had the sense to hold the Vidro and the Cairo. It’s unimaginative but with the ingredients given this is as tasty as it gets.

  4. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 6:31 pm

    Don’t worry I’m sure we’ll see Cairo out to pinch-hit at some point…

    *sigh*

    Go M’s!!! 2 in a row would be nice…

  5. Sentinel on May 16th, 2008 6:33 pm

    Can two in a row be considered a streak? I’d like to think so.

    Hey Derek, I haven’t paid much attention to the Padres since I left San Diego last September. Wasn’t Chris Young supposed to be a stud this year?

  6. barabuski on May 16th, 2008 6:34 pm

    Cairo spurred the winning streak.

  7. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 6:35 pm

    In the would you trade game I can’t think of another team I would only take 1 player(A Gonzalez), maybe Greene for defense if he isn’t overrated in the field. I would take Bud Black in a heartbeat, if only for the reason that he is not McLaren.

  8. Mo Vaughn Is My Hero on May 16th, 2008 6:38 pm

    I think this deserves a quote from one of my favorite movies “If we win tonight, that’s two in a row. If we win tomorrow, that’s called a winning streak. It has happened before.”

  9. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 6:39 pm

    The game is on Sportsnet HD tonight here in BC WooHoo!!!
    Gotta keep the Jagerbombs to a minimum tonight cause I have to work…so…Everytime the M’s hit a home run…I’ll down one…who’s with me?

  10. DMZ on May 16th, 2008 6:40 pm

    Young a stud? Yeah, more or less, depending on your definition of stud. The distinction between “really good player” and what might have been expected of him was substantial, but pretty good’s fine.

  11. Sentinel on May 16th, 2008 6:42 pm

    This tidbit from McLaren, courtesy of Baker’s blog:

    “Now this is our type of weather,” he said. “And we had a huge game the other day. … Now we’re looking to get back to winning two out of three, two out of three, two out of three, and start gaining some momentum, and hopefully some of the other teams in our division start struggling a little bit and we start gaining on them and get even and we go from there.”

    Really? Genius stuff there, Mac. Sounds like you have it all planned out.

  12. Sentinel on May 16th, 2008 6:45 pm

    Young a stud? Yeah, more or less, depending on your definition of stud. The distinction between “really good player” and what might have been expected of him was substantial, but pretty good’s fine.

    I suppose what they’ve got from him has been fair, considering the lineup they put out there each night.

  13. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 6:47 pm

    Billy Jive- I have some crazy strong bock micro brew, I will be with you! If thats not good enough I can make some soco/lime shots.

  14. Tek Jansen on May 16th, 2008 6:48 pm

    I still can’t believe that the M’s roster is constructed so as to have only have three lefty bats in the lineup. Turbo is available to PH, but his back is preventing him from playing the whole game, even at DH or 1B. It is hard to fathom that a supreme athlete like Turbo suffers from those type of physical ailments. And when I say “athlete,” I mean it in the context that competitive eaters also refer to themeselves as “athletes.”

  15. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 6:49 pm

    Sounds like McLaren had a few Jagerbombs before that interview..I always feel way smarter after a few Jagerbombs too…

  16. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 6:50 pm

    I would go with the SoCo Lime shots….bock micro brew gives you way worse hangovers….

  17. Dash on May 16th, 2008 6:52 pm

    If we played one of DMZ’s favorite games here, “Would you switch for them”, Gonzalez for Sexson is sadly about the only switch I’d make.

  18. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 6:55 pm

    BillyJive- Fair enough, I think I will change it up a little though. Every outfield assist or double play the M’s turn I will take a shot. I am hoping for fly ball unlucky Beluga Tits.

  19. jephdood on May 16th, 2008 6:58 pm

    Too bad baseball rules prevent throwing your helmet at a pitched ball instead of swinging a bat.. Richie might have better luck making contact that way.

  20. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:00 pm

    How about a Dunkelweizen?

  21. Sentinel on May 16th, 2008 7:03 pm

    I think I will change it up a little though. Every outfield assist or double play the M’s turn I will take a shot.

    I’m pretty sure it’d be more fun the other way around. How about taking a shot every time a Mariner hits into a DP?

  22. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:04 pm

    9: Billy Jive – I’m with ya too, bro — though if we all wait on the Mariner HR’s, we should still be sober enough to drive by the end of the evening.

  23. jefffrane on May 16th, 2008 7:05 pm

    If you like weissbier, you owe it to yourself to find Vitus, from Weihenstephaner. http://tinyurl.com/yn55ux

    Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

  24. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:05 pm

    21… that sounds about as dangerous as the “fourth year fifth” at my alma mater (seniors trying to drink an entire fifth of alcohol during a football game.)

  25. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:05 pm

    Well like I said I have to work tonight..I figured I was safer to go with HR’s…

  26. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:06 pm

    Sentinel- Because Richie is back in the lineup and I am not sure if my roomie will be back in time to rescue me from alcohol poisoning.

  27. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:07 pm

    How about taking a shot every time a Mariner hits into a DP?

    Gah, that could be suicidal.

  28. joser on May 16th, 2008 7:07 pm

    How about a Dunkelweizen?

    These denigrating nicknames for Willie Bloomquist have to stop.

  29. joser on May 16th, 2008 7:09 pm

    How about you take a shot each time Blowers says “no doubt about it”? (Don’t listen to the pre-game show, you’ll be dead before the first pitch).

  30. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:09 pm

    Okay kids, get ready for the Clash Of The Titans!

  31. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:13 pm

    These denigrating nicknames for Willie Bloomquist have to stop.

    Too funny!!

    Okay if WillieB or FrickenCairo hits a HR we drink triple shots!!!

  32. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:14 pm

    Show us what your made of Beluga Tits… besides blubber.

  33. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:14 pm

    Geez, that took all of 90 seconds or so for Miggy to put the game in grave jeopardy.

  34. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:14 pm

    I Hope Baek is ready to go today.

  35. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:15 pm

    Are you kidding me? 2 pitches and we are out of this game?

  36. msb on May 16th, 2008 7:15 pm

    sigh. the 2008 motto:

    The Seattle Mariners.

    Good For What Ails Ya.

  37. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:16 pm

    Speaking of triples…..
    *sigh*
    It’s gonna be a long game…

  38. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:16 pm

    That didn’t take long.

  39. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:16 pm

    Wasn’t Wlad supposed to be a decently good fielder? He looks as slow as Raul out there.

  40. Jay R. on May 16th, 2008 7:16 pm

    F*cking clownshoes.

  41. Mike Snow on May 16th, 2008 7:16 pm

    That was fast.

  42. Mike G. on May 16th, 2008 7:16 pm

    Does Miguel know this isn’t a throw day and an actual live game?

  43. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:16 pm

    Derek needs to update his “buzz before the game” post.

  44. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:17 pm

    Holy crap, I didn’t know Tony Clark was still alive.

  45. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:19 pm

    Good For What Ails Ya.

    Or, what ales ya!

  46. fargomsfan on May 16th, 2008 7:19 pm

    I picked the wrong day to quit drinking…

  47. msb on May 16th, 2008 7:20 pm

    somehow I don’t think that by the end of this series the Padres will still hold the ‘worst offense in baseball’ honor.

  48. juneau_fan on May 16th, 2008 7:21 pm

    You think we have troubles with Vidro as the best DH this team could find?

    I was listening to a Padres/Giants game, Tony Clark* came off the bench, got a hit, and was pinch run for by…Greg Maddux.

    *What I love about NL games is discovering that all those players you thought were out of the game years ago are actually moldering on benches.

  49. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:21 pm

    *sigh* the game is essentially over and my pizza hasn’t even come yet.

  50. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 7:21 pm

    Awesome. I’m glad we are well on our to our ’4 or 5′ six game winning streaks. Good work gents.

  51. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:24 pm

    Bean Ball Batista.

  52. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:24 pm

    And now Niehaus is getting frustrated.

  53. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 7:24 pm

    ‘For Crying out loud, Batista is all over the place’ – Niehaus.

  54. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:24 pm

    Watching the Mariners is like watching a rerun. You watch it and get a little enjoyment but you know whats going to happen and it is overall just a waste of time.

    The 2008 Seattle Mariners- Like watching TV at 3am.

  55. hawgdriver on May 16th, 2008 7:25 pm

    There has been talk of fractiousness in the clubhouse. Is that just a symptom of a losing organization, or are there serious “chemistry” issues? It can’t be that hard to decipher, right? Besides Washburn and Kenji, what the hell is going on here? It seems like there is some real apathy.

    LOL–”for cryin’ out loud”

  56. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:25 pm

    Batista, give up a home run so we can go do something else.

  57. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:26 pm

    Wow..stellar pitching so far…
    I hear the M’s were watching Freddy Garcia pitch…wonder if he’ll be anything close to his old self

  58. Mike G. on May 16th, 2008 7:28 pm

    So Young should be all stiff now. I love it when a plan comes together.

  59. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:28 pm

    OKay how many times in the past few games has the opposing team scored three runs against the Mariners? This seems to happen EVERY game?? Am I wrong here?

  60. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:28 pm

    48: That’s kinda interesting. When he was managing the Tigers years ago, Sparky Anderson used to do the same thing every once in a while with Jack Morris — probably ’cause Jack ran better than a lot of the guys on that team did back then.

  61. jefffrane on May 16th, 2008 7:28 pm

    Maybe one of those college softball players can pitch.

  62. joser on May 16th, 2008 7:28 pm

    Like watching TV at 3am.

    Isn’t that about the time that guy with the John Waters pencil mustache gets on and promotes his colonic that is supposed to cleanse the “toxins” from your intestinal tract?

    Yeah, this is like that.

  63. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:28 pm

    Baek has pitched or warmed up like 10 games in a row. Shouldn’t he get a rest or bring up Dickey to help him?

  64. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:30 pm

    The 2008 Seattle Mariners- Like watching TV at 3am.

    Actually, infomercials or Poker After Dark are both more exciting than this team has been lately.

  65. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:30 pm

    Dammit they aren’t showing the game yet because the MINOR LEAGUE HOCKEY game went into overtime….
    Maybe it’s a sign…

  66. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 7:30 pm

    Is it possible for fans to file some sort of suit against ownership for pain inflicted?

    I will be glad to show them how much the season tickets have cost me.

  67. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:30 pm

    Garcia may be a good signing if you can get him cheap enough. Plus he’d be great at the Fungo party.

  68. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:31 pm

    I’m so ready for a Fungo party at this point…

  69. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:31 pm

    Speaking of great college softball players, I wonder if we can activate Angie Mentink to the roster?!

  70. joser on May 16th, 2008 7:32 pm

    what the hell is going on here?

    What’s going on here is that this team isn’t very good. It’s a badly-assembled collection of mostly mediocre, mostly overpaid parts. Last year they got lucky and played above their true talent level. This year they’re playing a bit below it. But mostly, it’s just a bad team, and we’re getting about what you should expect from that.

  71. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:32 pm

    I’m willing to bet that 90% of the people there only went for the Putz bobblehead.

    The other 10% scored cheap tickets and couldn’t pass them up.

  72. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:32 pm

    Bloomquist in a FSN/Mariners promo? Oy.

  73. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:33 pm

    65: That isn’t the CHL Memorial Cup Finals by any chance, is it?

  74. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:34 pm

    Did the M’s even bat? That was an all-too-fast half-inning.

  75. joser on May 16th, 2008 7:34 pm

    Is Angie Mentink a LH hitter?

    Is it possible for fans to file some sort of suit against ownership for pain inflicted?

    If that was possible the Cubs would’ve been bankrupted fifty years ago. And neither Florida team would still be in existence. And actually, the M’s would not have made it out of the 80s.

  76. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:34 pm

    Yup…The Rangers just won…so they should switch over to the M’s game…

  77. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:35 pm

    “He is more of a contact guy” Not exactly Blowers, his K/9 is above 8 for his career. But I am really happy you know he holds the ball lightly, cause that is what we need to know.

  78. barabuski on May 16th, 2008 7:35 pm

    it’s so hard for me to watch batista, honestly he just throws meatballs and looks sweaty

  79. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:36 pm

    Did the M’s even bat?

    Uh, barely.

  80. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:36 pm

    Woooooo! Go Padres!

  81. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:37 pm

    Gee they switched the game over just in time for that????

    *cringe*

  82. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:37 pm

    No Batista, you’re not throwing batting practice. This game actually counts.

  83. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:37 pm

    Oh, lord…when Iguchi goes yard on ya, you know this game is hopeless!

  84. joser on May 16th, 2008 7:38 pm

    Be careful what you wish for…

  85. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 7:38 pm

    70 – I think classic description, well put

    71 – I think your numbers are rightttt on the money.

  86. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:39 pm

    The M’s don’t deserve my alcohol consumption.

  87. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:39 pm

    Are we now officially free to root for our Hated Rivals for the rest of this game?

  88. shortbus on May 16th, 2008 7:40 pm

    I don’t think we’ve seen the Mariners all season hit like the Padres have so far. Every hit goes for extra bases, everything hit hard. Batista’s making these guys look like the ’27 Yankees.

  89. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:40 pm

    Miguel Batista = Gut Teams Alibi

  90. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 7:41 pm

    Somehow we are making an offense that is close / if not as bad as ours look good.

  91. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:41 pm

    87 -

    And she said –
    “Tell me are you a Christian child?”
    And I said “Ma’am I am tonight”

    Yes.

  92. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:41 pm

    Ah, the comeback begins…Woo-Hoo!

  93. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:43 pm

    91: I’ll betcha half the fans who went to the game tonight wish they were “Walking In Memphis” instead.

  94. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 7:44 pm

    93 – indeed. Or riding in a Silver Thunderbird.

    As an aside, he’s playing at Zoo Tunes this year.

  95. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 7:44 pm

    Sexson really has a way with the bat.

  96. Benne on May 16th, 2008 7:46 pm

    Raul? Really? I don’t know what to believe anymore.

  97. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:47 pm

    OMG…RAUUUUL the speed demon?!

    Quick, check outside for locusts!

  98. Mike G. on May 16th, 2008 7:47 pm

    Speaking of softball, I wish it was like coaches pitch and Miguel could pitch to the M’s and Young to the Padres.

  99. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:47 pm

    Jeff Clement can not recognize a changeup. It is sad because I love his swing.

  100. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:48 pm

    KENJIIIIII!!!!!

    WOO HOOO!!!

    Raise your drinks fellas!!!

  101. hawgdriver on May 16th, 2008 7:48 pm

    “Kenji will be fine.”

  102. jefffrane on May 16th, 2008 7:48 pm

    Pretty funny. Gameday says “Raul Ibanez steals 2nd base.” Ha ha. No, seriously. What happened?

  103. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:48 pm

    KENJI!

    Well, there’s that first J-bomb for tonight…

  104. Mike G. on May 16th, 2008 7:49 pm

    Curse you Kenji! You selfishly killed the rally with your homerun!

  105. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:50 pm

    Ya know, I was being facetious about that comeback…or so I thought!

  106. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:51 pm

    What the hell is going on???

    WOO HOO!!! Lovin’ it!!!

  107. Tom in Edmonds on May 16th, 2008 7:52 pm

    OMG, A two out Rally !!!

    Can the Ichi keep it alive?

  108. Mike G. on May 16th, 2008 7:52 pm

    scott19- this lineup FEASTS on your sarcasm. Except for Vidro, we’ve established where he feasts.

  109. hawgdriver on May 16th, 2008 7:52 pm

    So is Miguel Descartes the Dominican poet done? Will we be blessed with the chance to win?

  110. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 7:56 pm

    108: Hey Mike, I never thought about it, but the Old Country Buffet could probably get Turbo to do some commercial spots for them. :)

  111. Jay R. on May 16th, 2008 7:57 pm

    If Adrian could lay off sliders low and away he would win a batting title.

  112. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 7:58 pm

    111…and I wouldn’t yell at the TV so much…

  113. HamNasty on May 16th, 2008 7:59 pm

    111… and I wouldn’t be dead inside…

  114. crazyray7391 on May 16th, 2008 8:03 pm

    What was that thing keeping score? And why did we have to see it?

  115. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 8:06 pm

    Pretty much any other left fielder would have gotten that.

  116. Benne on May 16th, 2008 8:07 pm

    Mel Stottlemyre is crying right now.

  117. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 8:08 pm

    114 Why is that guy pitching? And why do we have to see it?

  118. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 8:08 pm

    Maybe we can sign Tanyon Sturtze.

  119. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 8:09 pm

    Stottlemyer: “Bring out the gimp”

  120. msb on May 16th, 2008 8:10 pm

    There has been talk of fractiousness in the clubhouse.

    there has?

    Besides Washburn and Kenji, what the hell is going on here?

    well, as apparently Kenji & Washburn have a fishing trip planned, I am assuming not much, aside from them occasionally not being on the same page about what to throw when …

  121. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 8:11 pm

    At this point, I think the gimp would be a better pitcher.

  122. zzyzx on May 16th, 2008 8:12 pm

    oh ok, bobbleheads. I was wondering why there were so many people today. I was scared people were buying into the rivalry.

  123. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:13 pm

    I think Ichiro could probably pitch better than our #4 and #5 guys, and I’m not kidding.

  124. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 8:14 pm

    122: Plus, it’s finally, uh, WARM outside for a change.

  125. Benne on May 16th, 2008 8:14 pm

    Why Raul, you are quite frisky on the basepaths today.

  126. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:15 pm

    Ichiro quote from 2007

    “Once I turn 40,” he says, “I can become a pitcher. I’m kind of serious about it. But I’ll have to learn to throw a knuckleball. Right now, I could be a ‘normal’ pitcher,” who can top out at 95 mph with a fastball.

  127. zzyzx on May 16th, 2008 8:16 pm

    124 – True, but M’s/Pads is still a pretty hard sell.

    I was wondering why FSN seems to think that they need to show fans doing random crap at the game, more than well……the game itself. You may have answered that though. I don’t want to see him pitching any more either

  129. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 8:18 pm

    In the O’s-Nats game tonight, a guy by the name of Sherrill got his 16th save of the year so far.

    Wow…sure glad we didn’t need a guy like that around.

  130. msb on May 16th, 2008 8:18 pm

    wonder what it would be like to have an inning where they catch up to or surge on past the opposing team …

  131. crazyray7391 on May 16th, 2008 8:19 pm

    jspektor,

    Be careful who you say that around, you don’t want the “angry little beaver” coming after you.

  132. Mike G. on May 16th, 2008 8:19 pm

    zzyzx- Are you kidding?! The Fryers make my blood boil! They’re so south and we’re so…north. Ooooh I hate ‘em so much!

  133. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:19 pm

    i despise rally fries.

  134. crazyray7391 on May 16th, 2008 8:20 pm

    133

    I’ll drink to that.

  135. Jay R. on May 16th, 2008 8:20 pm

    129- Your team has to have a lead in order to earn a save. He would be wasted here.

    well, it’s not like there are a lot of games to save ’round these parts …

  137. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 8:23 pm

    128: Although at least we don’t have Bert Blyleven circling everybody’s head with a tracer like the Twins do.

  138. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 8:23 pm

    135/136: True.

  139. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:27 pm

    Yuni swings at every pitch thrown in a ten mile radius of his bat. Doesn’t matter the situation.

  140. jlc on May 16th, 2008 8:32 pm

    Bard’s so bad, Raul stole a base. I expect at least one from Ichiro whenever he gets on base.

  141. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:40 pm

    AB certainly has some good leather…

  142. ndrfx on May 16th, 2008 8:40 pm

    Adrian Beltre with the circus catch, haha. Nice!!

  143. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 8:40 pm

    139: Vladdy Guerrero does the same thing.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if Yuni made that kind of contact?

  144. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:43 pm

    143 -

    Indeed, a nice thought.

  145. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 8:45 pm

    …I am chilling the Jagermeister…

  146. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:46 pm

    yeah – j- bombs all night tonight. no doubt. at least the city will be poppin off tonight

  147. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 8:46 pm

    LOL..I should drink one for that anyways…

  148. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 8:47 pm

    I almost would rather watch on ‘Two Girls One Cup’ … on repeat.

  149. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 8:49 pm

    (coming back after break)

    How can Batista still be pitching?

  150. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 8:52 pm

    149 because McLaren is managing

  151. jlc on May 16th, 2008 8:58 pm

    Does Yuni have a new look with the socks, or did he change when I was listening to games on the radio?

  152. crazyray7391 on May 16th, 2008 9:01 pm

    You know, we’re at a critical point in the game and FSN decides that now is the best time to give out rally fries? It just makes me sick. We want to see the game, not people begging for food.

  153. jspektor on May 16th, 2008 9:08 pm

    152 – couldn’t agree with you more

    149 – It is time for me to go out and get hammered. J-bombs for the jive tribe.

  154. hawgdriver on May 16th, 2008 9:10 pm

    120: Replace fractiousness with ‘attitude problems’, I suspect that remedies any misconstuction. Poor diction on my part.

    Seriously, a fishing trip? Is my sarcasmdar tango uniform, or is Jarrod seriously going to inspect Kenji’s tackle?

  155. BillyJive on May 16th, 2008 9:13 pm

    We may have been hosed on that one…
    jagerbombs for everyone!!!

  156. scott19 on May 16th, 2008 9:16 pm

    Yep…think it’s time to go watch the rest of this at the bar.

  157. ndrfx on May 16th, 2008 9:35 pm

    Holy cow some defense…or bad base running, either way, benefit much!

  158. juneau_fan on May 16th, 2008 9:45 pm

    Does Yuni have a new look with the socks, or did he change when I was listening to games on the radio?

    Balentien and he switched to the socks somewhere in the Texas series. Last game? And they won, so of course he’ll stick with them.

    I always thought he was going to trip over those long pants anyway.

  159. Benne on May 16th, 2008 9:48 pm

    The Wave should be banned.

  160. planB on May 16th, 2008 10:04 pm

    Um Kenji sort of didn’t catch that?

  161. fetish on May 16th, 2008 10:10 pm

    Whai… wha?

    Shouldn’t you burn your best pinch-runner for the TYING or GO-HEAD runner?

  162. jlc on May 16th, 2008 10:10 pm

    Juneau-thanks. I’m a big fan of the socks look, and not a fan of the pants three inches too long.

  163. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 10:13 pm

    Well, only four walks given up tonight!

  164. jlc on May 16th, 2008 10:15 pm

    Jesus, how many times can you say it could have been worse? I think I’m already done with that phrase, and it’s only May. I had my hopes pinned on beating Texas and San Diego. Maybe tomorrow…. At least we’ll have the better pitchers the next two days.
