IGD: Padres @ Brewers (27 Sep 07)

Game #159
time: 5:05 p.m. PT
tv: 4SD
sp: Jack Cassel (1-1, 4.00) vs Yovani Gallardo (9-4, 3.59)
pre: Padres.com, B-R.com

Is there anything you wouldn’t do to get either Prince Fielder or Ryan Braun in your lineup? On the bright side, Yovani Gallardo is Milwaukee’s only good pitcher. If the Padres can steal one Thursday night…

  1. #150: LM, first, probably except for that headline in the SD Union Trib that used it with Germano. But, other than that, you’re good.

  2. Great to see Scotty out there. I’m guessing that Brewer fans feel the same way that I feel now when Brocail goes out. Wait! I don’t think that’s a good thing.

  3. 148 … that’d be an interesting study … during games at the end of Sept (say last week or 10 days) between teams that are “1 still in the hunt” vs “1 eliminated” … does the winning % of either team change compared to the previous 152 games? It’d be fun to access to a database that could provide the answer to that question …

  4. B(l)um singles off Linebrink … just brutal … sweetly brutal …

  5. Bunting with a 4 run lead, in front of a pinch hitter with a really low likelihood of singling but a relatively decent chance at drawing a walk or getting an extra base hit? And we give away another out (even though Hardy missed the tag).

  6. Yo, Brady … whose idea was that?

  7. 155 … Ah … sorry, Brady … doesn’t sound like it was your idea … sigh …

  8. Anyone got a radar gun reading on Heat Bell?

  9. I wonder who pitches the 9th.

  10. 158 … 1-2-3, baby … atta boy, Heat!

  11. 161 – I’ll pass on that unless it’s an inside joke I dunno about

  12. 158: GameDay had him topped at 94.9 and 95. Looks like he threw several sliders or changes.

  13. ALERT … check out what’s for sale at mlb.com …


    … YIKES! Don’t worry … it’s not just the Padres … sigh …

  14. Three long outs away from ending this.

  15. Rox up 2-0 off an Atkins homer

  16. 162 … the only “inside joke” was in reference to today’s pre-IGD comment thread … seemed like KG was the topic of every post today …

  17. 164: I’ll take 3!

  18. 166: Make that 3-0 off a Hawpe homer…

  19. Make that 3-0 Rockies after a Hawpe homer.

  20. 159/161/162 … uh, Yahoo’s showin’ Heat still in? I guess that’s OK with me … just *not* what I expected! I *love* stickin’ with the hot hand!

  21. Hey,
    Anybody watching this game on TV? What did Gwynn Sr. say during Gwynn Jr.s AB there. Anything? Just curious.

  22. Also,
    171 – Bell threw only 10 pitches in the 8th, so I can see giving him another inning.

    And whatever happened to Germano and K. Cameron. They’ve been AWOL for quite a while…

  23. 165 … not so long after all … WAY COOL!!!

  24. Now, let’s get the next three games!!!!!!

    GO PADRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Sweet!

    Alright…just 3 more.

  26. Thanks LM, I missed that!

    Great win tonight, this was definitely the worst matchup of the four for us I think.

  27. 173 … dunno the answer … but I, for one, am not worried about it. I’ll bet we see Germano some time this weekend … but I’m hoping we don’t see Cameron … he’s given up runs in 4 of his last 7 outings …

  28. 170 … Loaiza only lasted 47 pitches … Dogs into pen … Morales still only given up 1 hit … DOGS! :-(

  29. Don’t know if it’s already been said, but Ben Sheets is not going to start tomorrow. Capuano instead. I hope that is good news.

    Meanwhile, I wonder if we are saving Jake to pitch on Sunday if need be, and if not, save him for Game 1.

  30. I’m outta here … going to see Dick Dale … no, really … he’s here in Corvallis, OR *tonight*!



  31. 178
    Runs in 4 out of 7 outings? I wasn’t asking about Hoffman…
    Nah, just a joke. Hoffman seems recovered from his summer swoon. I was just wondering if Cameron was injured or something. Black started trusting him there, for a minute. I still like relievers who throw hard.

  32. 181- I saw him a couple of weeks ago at the Belly Up. Prolly the seventh or eighth time I’ve seen Dale play, and he rawked every time.

  33. Brocail’s ticking time bomb finally went off. Good thing we raised the lead to 7 just before he came in.

  34. 146: Boy, am I tired of that cliche. I believe that is in the Analysis Handbook for Old-Timers and Ex-Pros.

  35. 172. Tony was dismissed from broadcasting his son’s at bat.

  36. Friar Faithful: who do we root for this weekend? Rox or D-Backs? Really, really tough to say? If Rox had lost tonight, then I would have been all for them crushing the D-Backs tomorrow. But, now I’m not so sure. What if we all cheer hard for the Rox tomorrow, they beat the D-Backs, and we end up losing tomorrow night in Milwaukee? That would be tragic. I can not seem to totally wrap my mind around this one. Maybe root hard for D-Backs tomorrow, while we get a W. Then, root like hell for Rox in the next two, while we finish off the series with two more Ws in Milwaukee to capture the NL West crown. Tough to say….

  37. 187: Have to root for the Rockies to win 2 of 3.

  38. Let’s just root for the Padres to win. Then the other stuff doesn’t matter.

  39. Phils beat Nat: Phils have mo and a 14-game winner going tonight
    Pads beat Mik: FHOL vs 5-12 guy. Won’t be easy with greg’s back
    Az @ Col ?: Tough game to call. Webb v Francis, 2 17-game winners
    Fish @ Mets ?: Perez v Kim, mets should win, but they are psyched
