Game 156, 2015

Dodgers at Giants, 7:15PM PT, TV: SPNLA

With the Dodgers’ magic number stuck on two, it would relieve a lot of their fans if they won this game and dispensed with the suspense. To that end they send out odds-on Cy Young favorite Zack Greinke, who’s 18-3 with a microscopic 1.65 ERA to face Jake Peavy, who’s 7-6 with a 3.83 ERA. Greinke skipped his last start with a sore calf but pitched his usual bullpen session on Friday and is thought to be fine. Peavy has been a Dodger-killer in the past if you look at his record (14-3 with a 2.42 ERA in 28 career starts against them), but those numbers were amassed with a different team and facing different players on the Dodgers; I’m not persuaded those kinds of statistics mean much.

I’m sure the Dodgers will be just fine, because they have:

Lineup when available.

  • WBBsAs

    For those concerned about momentum (or lack thereof), enjoy this little tidbit from Eric Stephen: “That 2006 Dodgers team won their final seven games of the season, finishing with momentum coming out the wazoo, which propelled Los Angeles to … getting swept in the first round by the Mets.”

    • package206

      OK, I guess the Dodgers don’t need momentum according to you and Eric Stephen.

      • WBBsAs

        No, it’s that momentum is the “product of the mass and velocity of an object.” A thrown or batted baseball has a quantifiable momentum, but a sports team does not.

      • RBI

        Right now, what they need is a win. One. Win. Please?

        • package206

          Hey RBI, Yes ONE WIN!!!

    • Bob_Hendley

      Jon cites a study of teams between 1969-2013, which suggests that momentum does not correlate with post-season success. http://dodgers.mlblogs.com/2015/09/28/myth-and-reality-the-playoffs/ That said, would love to sweep these giants (sic)!

    • scooplew

      That was an amazingly painful three-game series, beginning in the second inning of the first game when both Kent and Drew were tagged out at home plate on the same play by ex-Dodger Paul LoDuca when both tried to score on a single by Russell Martin. He singled into a double play. Who can forget? Other ex-Dodgers on that Mets squad were Shawn Green, who killed us in the third and final game, Jose Valentin and Guillermo Mota.

    Gee Whiz, a respectable lineup for a change.

    • scooplew

      I wish we had someone else in left field tonight. Like Schebler. Here’s hoping that Grandal regains his stroke. He looks like a lost puppy for the past few weeks.

  • scooplew

    Living where Bay Area media dominates, I can tell you that their news and sports people are starting to get excited about this four-game series. One guy said if the Giants can win tonight and tomorrow — beating Greinke and Kershaw — then things would be looking a lot better for the Giants. Unfortunately, I agree with that analysis. For goodness sake, let’s just win tonight.

    • “If wishes were horses then beggars would ride.”

      Alternatively: “If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we’d all have a helluva Christmas.”

      • scooplew

        A favorite on my late father, a native of Brooklyn and a lifelong Dodgers fan. “If my grandmother had wires over her head, she’d be a trolley.” Not sure I ever completely understood that.

    • WBBsAs

      I also live in the Bay Area, but I ignore their sports media.

  • WBBsAs

    Being blacked out for the next four games, I’m not looking forward to six innings of Steiner per night.

  • RBI

    Latos to the Angels. Good luck with that, Anaheim. (Having said that, he’ll probably be lights out for them, to spite us.)

    • Only for the last week of the season. Pitching-short, they are.

    • WBBsAs

      I expect Latos and Papelbon to be Gnats gnext year. They like their attitude.

  • RBI

    My toes are powder blue. Couldn’t make it to the nail place, so I’m going with what I have. Making it work. Over to you, Dodgers!

    • WinnipegDave

      Let’s do this!

  • RBI

    Silver lining department: FO didn’t go the Papelbon route. Also, Kik’ Hernandez is back! Go Blue!!!

  • WBBsAs

    Meanwhile, in Pittsburgh, Broxton is pitching and pinch-running.

    • Uh-huh. But one of ’em is Keon Broxton, not Jonathan. This one’s a 25-year-old skinny black guy, not a bulky 30-something 300-pounder. The latter has pitched one inning so far for the Cardinals.

      • WBBsAs

        Distant cousins.

  • WBBsAs

    No Vin at all.

  • WinnipegDave

    No hard hit balls in the top of the first.

    • WinnipegDave

      Also – no Vin?!?!

      • WBBsAs

        On the bright side, no Steiner either so far.

        • package206

          Not so bright here, Steiner is alive and well.

          • WBBsAs

            The audio is Steiner-free.

          • package206

            Thanks, I will try and find something on the computer.

          • WBBsAs

            Do you have MLBTV? You can turn down video volume and listen on a smartphone or tablet.

          • WinnipegDave

            But that’s what I have and surprised there is no Vin.

          • package206

            No, I don’t have MLBTV. I have extra innings.

          • WinnipegDave

            You have Monday then?

  • Jack Dawkins

    Being Steinered on the TV side.

    • WBBsAs

      I’m completely blacked out in Oakland.

      • Jack Dawkins

        With Hershiser, but Nomar is back in LA.

        • WBBsAs

          I hope Vin is well.

  • RBI

    By the way, my youngest grandson, Gus, 18 months, said “Dodger” for the first time today. Has to mean something, right?

    • WBBsAs

      His first word?

      • RBI

        No. He has about twenty words. Including a-vo-ca-do. Southern California kid.

      • RBI

        Are you watching? Or listening?

    • WinnipegDave

      Woot!

    • Bob_Hendley

      Probably means you have been babysitting too much.

      • RBI

        I’d love to take credit, but his. Dad is the son who comes to games with me, and the reason I switched, years ago, from Mets to Dodgers.

    • package206

      Yea, that is awesome RBI. Guess he has heard it plenty from GMA.

  • RBI

    I am so nervous. My stomach is full of butterflies.

    • WinnipegDave

      I hear ya.

      • RBI

        Good. I’m not alone.

        • WinnipegDave

          Oh – I’m at playoff level nervousness.

          • RBI

            Me, too. Even more after they just scored two.

  • RBI

    Ethier! Well hit and almost gone. Anywhere else…

    • package206

      Maybe you should have got the nails done?

      • RBI

        I did them myself! Powder blue, but blue, nonetheless.

        • package206

          Maybe you could have mixed a little black and yellow and got it more royal?

  • package206

    Alright Grandal, show me something!!

  • package206

    Get em next time Kid!

  • RISP. LOB. I see these events in my sleep.

  • JonnyTAFKAJ

    Ok…Ok…Ok…. Kind of a big game……. Just Kinda!

    🙂

    • RBI

      Jonny! Here to bring us luck!

    • package206

      Hey Jonny!! What’s shakin???

  • RBI

    Oh dear lord. Please don’t let this be happening again.

    • WinnipegDave

      Might need Heisey to rescue Zack this time.

  • package206

    Shake it off Zack!!

  • Joc, Zack, Crawford coming up.

    • RBI

      Link! I need help with my nerves!

      • And just what do you propose I do about them? 😉

      • WinnipegDave

        Breathe deep.

        • RBI

          I do need to remember my Buddhist training. Letting go, breathing, not clinging to results, etc. etc.

          • WinnipegDave

            I’m a big believer in deep breathing to reduce stress.

      • Bob_Hendley

        Other than the pleasure of beating the giants, this particular game is not very meaningful. (I am guessing that doesn’t help)

      • package206

        I hope I am not being paid back for the letter.

  • package206

    Joc, show me I’m wrong!!

    • RBI

      You mean, take the bat off your shoulder? (Sorry, he did actually hit it this time.)

  • RBI

    The grass in the outfield exploded on Byrd. Super-divots.

  • WinnipegDave

    Bad throw by the catcher on that steal by CC.

  • WinnipegDave

    A run. An actually run in SF.

    • RBI

      Last one since April, apparently. Whoa.

  • RBI

    AGon fooled pretty badly on that at bat. I suspect he’ll come back strong next one.

  • WinnipegDave

    Oh for a healthy Gonzo and Grandal.

  • JonnyTAFKAJ

    Seager……….. Giant-Killer !!!!!!
    ( We need as many of these as we can get …….. )
    🙂

    • WinnipegDave

      Can we designate Andre as well. Andre the Giant killer.

  • RBI

    DP, please.

    • WinnipegDave

      Tonight I think DP has an additional meaning: Don’t Panic!

  • Bob_Hendley

    DP it is!

    • WinnipegDave

      Strike out and caught stealing – good work Grandal!

  • RBI

    Yes! Not exactly double play, but two outs with one at bat!

  • RBI

    Beautiful throw by Grandal.

  • RBI

    Turner killed that ball, but it stays in at this stadium.

    • WinnipegDave

      And they bloop one in between right and centre for their 2 runs.

      • RBI

        Baseball…

  • WinnipegDave

    DP number 2.

  • WinnipegDave

    I wouldn’t mind a 5 spot this next inning for the Dodgers. I wouldn’t complain one bit.

  • WinnipegDave

    Too many deep fly balls to the warning track for the Dodgers.

    • package206

      Whatcha got tonight Dave, Lime sherbet?

      • WinnipegDave

        Uhh… popcorn?

        • package206

          Popcorn?

          • WinnipegDave

            Ha ha – yep! But I will start eating nervous snack number 2 as soon as I figure out what I want.

  • RBI

    Joc walks! I’ll take it!

  • RBI

    Argh!!! Crawford took strike two right down the middle.

    • package206

      You know I have not heard a WooHoo in a while.

      • RBI

        There’s a reason for that, sadly.

  • WBBsAs

    I’m unable to watch this, but I get the impression Greinke is not at his sharpest.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Seems maybe a little off. The catcher has hit a couple of good pitches after Zach has fallen behind in the count. No one else has given him much trouble.

    • WinnipegDave

      Just a notch below his best. Brown hit a mistake pitch for sure and a few others have found some holes.

  • package206

    Corey was robbed!!

  • WinnipegDave

    No breaks yet tonight for LA.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Posey breaks his bat?

  • WinnipegDave

    Dodgers have the better running game tonight, but still need a few more good at bats.

  • RBI

    Another weak show by the offense.

  • WinnipegDave

    Wish it was Kiké in there for Kendrick instead of Utley.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Utley at OPS+ 118 against righties as a Dodger, so not a bad choice over a right handed batter(OPS+ 70 against righties) just coming off the DL.

      • WinnipegDave

        Right. Forgot which way Hernandez hit for a moment.

        • Bob_Hendley

          We should see his magic soon.

  • scooplew

    Nothing Grand about Grandal, again. If either he or Pederson could get going, we’d be in grand shape.

  • WinnipegDave

    Pitching changes and pinch hitters parades will start up soon I guess.

  • RBI

    Does champagne go flat after a few weeks?

  • RBI

    All three Crawford balls called on Greinke could have been called strikes. Two WERE strikes.

  • WinnipegDave

    Bats please come alive now. Please!

  • WinnipegDave

    Ok Rugs pretend you are leading off the game.

  • RBI

    Even weaker in the 8th.

  • WinnipegDave

    Need ninth inning magic.

    • RBI

      Yes, we do.

  • RBI

    I don’t know, guys. We just don’t seem to be able to manufacture runs anymore. Can’t win if you can’t score. This will also probably cost Zach the Cy Young.

    • scooplew

      Yes, it probably will go to Arrietta.

      • WinnipegDave

        Based on one bloop 2 RBI hit in tonight’s game? I don’t think it will come down to that.

        • RBI

          It’s versus one no-hitter and the recent one-hitter, plus all the wins.

          • WinnipegDave

            But Zack has 3 fewer losses

          • Bob_Hendley

            Awful close at this point. Wonder if Clayton takes votes that might otherwise have gone to Zach?

  • WBBsAs
    • WinnipegDave

      Wow. That’s surprising.

  • WinnipegDave

    Orel just made it sound like Hatcher was on the bubble to make the postseason roster. Don’t think so man. He’s in.

    • RBI

      Orel loves to bloviate.

      • WinnipegDave

        Oooh – that sounds painful!

        • RBI

          I may have made it up, actually.

        • RBI

          ˈblōvēˌāt/
          verbUSinformal
          talk at length, especially in an inflated or empty way.

    • Bob_Hendley

      His second half ERA is 1.47 in 18 innings. Better than Kenley.

  • WinnipegDave

    Come on bottom of ninth, I want to see your beautiful face tonight.

  • scooplew

    Seager has half our hits.

  • RBI

    I actually think we may have a chance with Casilla.

  • WinnipegDave

    Need two more hits this inning! Let’s do this Dodgers. #almostheiseytime

  • WinnipegDave

    Wild pitch would be awesome.

  • RBI

    Wild pitch, please…

    • WinnipegDave

      Wow we are locked in tonight!

      • RBI

        Nervous stomachs and all.

  • RBI

    Nice bunt!

  • WBBsAs

    I don’t like the idea of giving up an out with a bunt.

    • RBI

      But we really needed to score here.

      • WBBsAs

        Bunting reduces the odds of scoring.

        • RBI

          Ah, okay.

          • WBBsAs

            Possibly kept Dodgers from scoring more.

          • RBI

            Mattingly doing what he does. A mystery most of the time.

        • RBI

          Anyway, either way, Turner bunted it perfectly.

  • RBI

    Tie game!!!!

    • WinnipegDave

      No loss for Zack.

  • RBI

    Might be a momentum changer. We’ll see!

  • WinnipegDave

    Glad to tie but woulda, coulda, shoulda been more.

    • RBI

      Yes. See WBB below.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Bochy will to have bull pen game with infield playing back rather than risk giving up lead. (he is a fox)

  • RBI

    Nicasio, you need to shine here.

    • scooplew

      Why not Jansen???

      • WBBsAs

        Because it’s not a “save situation.”

        • RBI

          Mattingly makes me nuts with his rigid decisions. Bochy is much more flexible.

  • WBBsAs

    Right, Don, you don’t want to waste Kenley here.

    • Bob_Hendley

      He is managing as if there is a tomorrow. Bochy, not so much. (winner’s dividend)

  • scooplew

    Utley’s sure looked like a hit. They had him positioned perfectly.

  • WBBsAs

    This is when Mattingly’s at his worst. You want your best reliever in this situation.

    • Bob_Hendley

      He only has to win one of four. May be better opportunities to use Kenley.

      • WBBsAs

        Kenley hasn’t pitched in four days now.

        • Bob_Hendley

          Then he should probably use him.

    • RBI

      So frustrating! Top of the line-up! We need KJ!

  • WBBsAs

    I understand Kenley’s not even warming up.

    • WinnipegDave

      Avalon and Garcia.

    • RBI

      I heard he was.

    • RBI

      How do you feel about the intentional walk. I hate them, myself.

      • WBBsAs

        In this case sorta OK, though I don’t trust Nicasio very far.

  • RBI

    Mattingly out-maneuvered yet again by Bochy.

    • Bob_Hendley

      How is that?

      • RBI

        Oh, I wa’s thinking the way Bochy played the outfield on Utley, and thinking we were about to blow it. Don’t mind me. Really, I’m nerve-posting. I’ll stop.

        • Bob_Hendley

          Bochy usually out manages just about everybody. Donnie not special. This is do or die tonight for Bochy. Donnie has more chances.

  • WinnipegDave

    DP please

    • WinnipegDave

      Or not.

    • RBI

      Should have been, but ball was bobbled.

  • RBI

    I can barely watch.

    • WinnipegDave

      Good thing it’s not our season on the line.

      • RBI

        I know. My poor husband.

  • RBI

    Breathe, RBI, breathe!

    • WinnipegDave

      Long deep breathes!

  • WBBsAs

    I just watched the Ethier replay on Gameday, and can’t believe how bad Steiner is. First he says it’s a base hit, then that Tomlinson knocked down a ball that he fielded cleanly.

  • RBI

    I just turned my ’88 championship t-shirt inside out.

  • WBBsAs

    I’d like to go to bed and watch a relaxing Swedish murder mystery.

    • RBI

      My favorite thing to do.

      • WBBsAs

        A Martin Beck or Johan Falk would work.

        • RBI

          Love Beck.

    • WinnipegDave

      What’s good in that genre?

      • WBBsAs

        Henning Mankell’s Wallander (the Swedish version is better, but Kenneth also did some in English).

  • WinnipegDave

    Heisey time!

  • RBI

    Bad at bat, Ruggiano.

  • WinnipegDave

    Ah Rugs!

    • RBI

      Hernandez!

  • Bob_Hendley

    Banana Boy!

  • WinnipegDave

    Kiké!!!

  • RBI

    JRoll is due an RBI!

  • RBI

    Maybe a WP first?

  • RBI

    No no no! Not a pop-up!

    • WinnipegDave

      Rollins (now) and Utley are bugging me tonight.

      • RBI

        I know. All this talk about how they know aboutvstepping it up.

        • WinnipegDave

          More like popping it up.

  • RBI

    Corey time. Against Romo. It could happen.

    • WBBsAs

      No, it’s Loogy López.

      • RBI

        Oh. Phooey.

      • RBI

        Still, Seager’s hitting over .300 against lefties.

  • WinnipegDave

    2 hard swings.

    • RBI

      Rats.

  • WinnipegDave

    Next time Corey!

    • Bob_Hendley

      Yeah, see you in the 13th!

      • WinnipegDave

        You tired at all yet Bob?

        • Bob_Hendley

          In DF tonight, so gained an hour.

          • WinnipegDave

            Nice – so we are in the same zone.

  • RBI

    Advantage, Gnats again.

  • WBBsAs

    Hard to trust Nicacio for more than an inning.

    • RBI

      Did you post that before or after the walk? Prescient?

  • RBI

    Lead off walks are never good, and a terrible idea this late.

    • WinnipegDave

      Except when the Giant pitcher did it in the top of the 10th it didn’t cost them.

  • RBI

    Orel talking about what a great game this is, and how both sets of fans are enjoying it. What is he on? I wanted a Dodgers blow-out.

    • WinnipegDave

      Yeah but Orel played for SF for a while so…

      • RBI

        Ahhh. I forgot that.

  • RBI

    I love Kik’e’s energy. Glad he’s back. One more out, guys.

  • RBI

    Parker is dangerous.

    • WinnipegDave

      Are your spidey senses tingling?

      • RBI

        Tee hee!

  • RBI

    I will say, we are playing a lot harder than at Coors field. If we win tonight, we will have earned it.

  • WinnipegDave

    On to the 11th!

  • WinnipegDave

    Schebler up.

    • WinnipegDave

      And Schebler on!

  • RBI

    Schebler!

  • RBI

    We get the first guy on again.

  • WinnipegDave

    Andre could do some damage.

  • RBI

    Utley’s turn to really prove his mettle now.

  • WinnipegDave

    Come on Utley – prove me so wrong right here.

    • RBI

      Worst possible outcome. But he hit it hard, at least.

      • Bob_Hendley

        Less hard and it’s not a DP.

        • RBI

          I know. I know. Really frustrated by Utley tonight.

  • RBI

    Okay, rally hat on as well. Alone. In my kitchen. I look like a crazy person.

    • WinnipegDave

      Says you. Sounds normal to me.

      • RBI

        Also grasping a lucky penny I just found in my sweaty left palm.

        • WinnipegDave

          Still ok!

  • WinnipegDave

    So predictably disappointing.

    • RBI

      Utley has not impressed tonight.

  • Arggh! DP!

  • RBI

    Not feeling so hopeful.

  • RBI

    Baez sweating. So am I.

  • RBI

    Why put a fast ball pitcher in for these guys?

  • Oh man. Posey. It had to be Posey.

  • WinnipegDave

    DP time.

  • WinnipegDave

    Push and shove tonight.

  • RBI

    Yes! Good for you, Howell!

  • Good coverage at 1B by Howell too.

  • If I’d stayed watching after they tied it in the ninth maybe they’d have won earlier.

  • WinnipegDave

    Alright – hang on to your luck penny everybody and hope the Dodgers break through in the 12th.

  • Who’s the Dodgers’ emergency catcher? Oh, wait, Barnes is up with them.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Kenley.

  • RBI

    Killed by AT&T. He crushed that. A great great at bat by AJ.

  • RBI

    Hit it out, Hernandez.

  • Hit it out, Jimmie!

  • WinnipegDave

    JRoll do something good.

  • Foo.

  • RBI

    Okay. Rule violations have commenced on that play at first.

    • WinnipegDave

      I give JR credit to try it. So close to working.

      • RBI

        I know. Took an amazing play by the pitcher.

  • Jack Dawkins

    Tough night to be the official scorer. Will need a second pencil.

    • WinnipegDave

      And 2nd scorecard.

  • WinnipegDave

    3 outs to go before Bob’s call for the 13th comes into life.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Oh that we make it.

  • I hate extra-inning away games on the road.

    • RBI

      Me, too. Every bottom inning is so tense.

  • Have they had the leadoff guy on in every extra inning? Seems like it.

    • RBI

      Almost. But so did we.

  • Arrrrgh!

    • RBI

      Don’t see this working. Maybe the Gnats will have left it all on the field tonight. And we’ll get to close this out on Bumgarner. Grasping at straws here.

  • RBI

    Oh well. This is it.

  • RBI

    Really bad pitch.

  • WBBsAs

    Great to see Kenley get another night off, Don.

    • RBI

      Well, if we go down in flames, he’ll be gone.

    • RBI

      Has he EVER brought Kenley in early?

      • WBBsAs

        He might have done once, but he’d rather let him have several days off and then come in rusty.

        • RBI

          So true.

  • WinnipegDave

    Walk Brown!

  • RBI

    Poor Liberatore. I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes.

    • WBBsAs

      Steiner says it’s “Lipitor.”

      • RBI

        I need it for my blood pressure tonight.

  • WBBsAs

    Refusal to use your best reliever is managerial malpractice.

  • WinnipegDave

    So many ways for SF to score. Very few options for the Dodgers.

  • Drat, blast and foo.

  • RBI

    That’s it. Again. I do not understand why Mattingly wouldn’t bring in Kenley.

    • Bob_Hendley

      He was saving him for if and when we got the lead.

      • WBBsAs

        You can’t get the lead if you don’t get it to the 13th.

    • Never had a lead. It’s agin’ all the unwritten rules to bring your closer in lessen’ you got a lead.

      • RBI

        Makes absolutely no sense to me to not use him in this game.

        • Bob_Hendley

          If Donnie was going to play it that way, he would have been used back in the 10th in any event.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Well, makes for another exciting game tomorrow at least with the two big lefties going.

  • RBI

    Okay. Good night. We played hard.

  • Ordinarily we’d say Liberatore did his job, getting a lazy popup to left field, but not with the winning run at third.

  • WinnipegDave

    We will get them tomorrow. Or today actually.

  • Was Adrian pulled because of injury?

    • Bob_Hendley

      Pinch runner for speed (would have been winning run)

      • Okay. I was worried about his injury recurring.

      • RBI

        Probably better for his back, anyway.

  • WinnipegDave

    The line up better have Howie and Kiké in it next game.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Sure to see them against the southpaw.

  • WBBsAs
    • RBI

      Grant Brisbee is the best thing about the Gnats, by far!

      • WBBsAs

        He’s at his best when they lose, though.

        • RBI

          I know. Hilarious.

  • From ESPN:

    The Dodgers have lost eight of their last 10 games and dropped a game in
    the standings each of the past three days. They still lead the Giants
    by five with just six to play, but they have three more games left in
    this series and they have scored just two runs in their past 38 innings
    at AT&T Park.

    • RBI

      I don’t think my anxiety has been misplaced, despite what some have said here. We really need to score some runs tomorrow.

      • Against Bumgarner. No problem, mate, it’ll be easy.

        • RBI

          I wish we had a number three pitcher I trusted.

      • Bob_Hendley

        I would be anxious if we had to do much more than win one game here or take two out of three from the Pads.

        • RBI

          “Win” being the operative word…

        • RBI

          I really hope you are right, though.

          • Bob_Hendley

            I am right about what we have to do, the latter against the Pads only if the giants win out.

  • WBBsAs

    It was a maddening game. That said, I’m pretty certain that, with six games remaining, the Gnats would much rather be in the position the Dodgers are.

  • WBBsAs

    Even before we see today’s lineup, it’s worth noting this (from Dustin Nosler).

  • Audit

    Back on line, and that will require more explanation… My internet has been slowing down the last couple of weeks so I called in Friday. Saturday a repairman spent about an hour on it and it was back up to speed. Four hours later it went out completely. Called but couldn’t get repairman till Tuesday afternoon. Saturday afternoon to Monday afternoon, no internet at all. Monday afternoon I started to get limited internet, it would pull up some small sites, on others it would say “No Internet Service”. This morning it came back up to full speed. The repair guy will think I’m nuts…
    So I didn’t know what happened on Saturday and Sunday. (I don’t have the patience to sit through hours of idiot talk and meaningless film clips, not counting hundreds of commercials and promos just to get a game score. TV, except for games and old Westerns, is useless) Anyway, I got to watch last nights game and the quest continues another day…
