Game 30 Thread: May 7 vs. Nationals, 7p

Randy Wolf (1-1, 3.93) vs. Jordan Zimmermann (2-1, 4.24).

COMMENTS: Hey everybody, anything interesting happen today? I just think it's great how we're in the middle of this historic winning streak and it feels as if nothing can go wrong. It's like, I don't know, we're in some invisible bubble that protects us from all the evil in the world. Undefeated at Dodger Stadium! There's no place like home There's no place like home There's no place like home

Orel said...

Wow, props to Casey there.

Alireza said...

Feel the power of the beard.

Nic j said...

the beard bops one in.

Orel said...

Pretty sneaky, Erin.

Erin said...

Orel, I am the master.

Dusto Magnifico said...

uh gameday is so slow!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

whew, that was way too close

Erin said...

Or mistress, I guess.

Alireza said...

Casey Blake earned at least $500,000 of his contract with that AB.

Dusto Magnifico said...

atta casey!

Erin said...

If there is anything more nerve racking that "in play, run(s)" on Gameday, I don't want to know about it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's see how well the bench can play now

Alireza said...

C'mon Mark. First homer as a Dodger.

Dusto Magnifico said...

mr baseball is up!

Alireza said...

Hell, a cue ball shot into RF would be OK too.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

this is way too tense

Erin said...

I'll take a hit. Don't walk, because that leaves it up to JP.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

do anything, just don't get out

karina said...

deuces wild!

go Loretta! (i'm watching the game and listening to Vinny, still feel down)

Alireza said...

Wouldn't it be funny if Pierre hit a homer off Beimel?

Orel said...

oh my tummy hurts

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

walk to Loretta to bring up JP.

Alireza said...

We need a patented Mark Loretta professional AB here.

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo for Pierre

Alireza said...

And we got it.

Dusto Magnifico said...

and now the rally killer is up.

Erin said...

I am developing an ulcer from a stupid game against the Nationals in the first week of May.

karina said...

Alireza, i'd call that a minor miracle.

Nic j said...

i think this is part of the reason why the dodgers didnt resign Beimel btw.

karina said...

Pierre, you can take a walk in here. We'll take it.

Alireza said...

C'mon Juan. Just dunk one of those pop fly singles into LCF.

Alireza said...

Believe it or not, Juan Pierre has zero career Grand Slams.

Steve Sax said...

here comes the Juan Pierre grand slam

Orel said...

You said it, Erin. Too early for this shit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

oh dammit

Alireza said...

A triple would work.

Orel said...

No heroes tonight.

Nic j said...

poor JP

karina said...

Slappy just broke my heart.

Steve Sax said...

Pierre grounds us out of the inning. Yep. Yay.

Alireza said...

I'm not happy.

Erin said...

"In play, out(s)" is all I need to see. Son of a bitch.

Nic j said...

its true what they say, you cant hide from the game.

karina said...

49 games to go...

Dusto Magnifico said...

i hate juan pierre. at least we dont have to see him in the 9th

Steve Sax said...

Hey, it looks like there's a movie about Wolverine! Who knew?

Erin said...

I don't know if I can make myself go to bed knowing that the top of the order will be up in the ninth.

Dusto Magnifico said...

worst player in baseball.

karina said...

Beimel got all over the place, was it too hard to draw a walk?

Alireza said...

I am betting Pierre was trying to foul that off and didn't have the bat speed or strength to pull it all the way.

Nic j said...

did you see ryan reynolds is getting a spinoff movie.

LAME!!

Nic j said...

blake replaces JP, ouch.

Alireza said...

Karina - Beimel actually threw strikes to Pierre. No excuse for him being up in that situation, but it still bears mentioning.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

this will be a long two months

Erin said...

I haven't seen Wolverine, but I don't hear good things. I'm really excited for Star Trek, though I'm not even a fan of the franchise really, and it turns out the damn thing doesn't open down here until next week.

Alireza said...

Nic - That is a good thing. Blake is a much better defensive corner OFer than Pierre.

Erin said...

I am a much better corner outfielder than Juan D'Vaughn Pierre.

Nic j said...

i meant ouch for JP thats gotta hurt the ego.

i love casey.

Steve Sax said...

nicJ, I haven't seen Wolverine yet, but you have to admit, Deadpool is a pretty sweet character.

Merc with a Mouth.

Alireza said...

Haha Nic. That was probably the first good move Torre made all game. Pierre was the last batter and you improve the defense.

Nic j said...

true, but ryan reynolds is such a douche. I might just be a little bitter about scarlet though.

Alireza said...

I suppose we will see Hanrahan in the next inning.

Alireza said...

I wish J-Mac dropped hammers like that as a starter.

Nic j said...

j mac has looked pretty great in the BP.

Orel said...

Hands off buddy, Scarlett is mine.

Alireza said...

Man. J-Mac is nasty tonight. He has a 18 MPH differential on his heater and change.

Nic j said...

you'll have to get through deadpool first orel.

Dusto Magnifico said...

j-mac does do that as a starter. but for the first inning only

Orel said...

Scarlett at SoSG

Nic j said...

the night just keeps getting better and better.

Erin said...

Excellent.

Orel said...

It wasn't meant to be tonight. 11-7 Nats.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't take this anymore. I'm out.

Nic j said...

this has got to be killing the confidence of the kids.

Alireza said...

Damn it. We had a chance.

Nic j said...

theres no crying in baseball, buck up guys.

Orel said...

Would have been foul if Loney doesn't touch it, right?

Nic j said...

it sure would have orel

Erin said...

Yeah, I'm out, too. Shutting down the computer, but maybe I'll check on my phone just to see how we respond in the bottom of the ninth.

Dusto Magnifico said...

anemia is setting in... offsense cant hit, pitchers cant pitch... im covering my eyes.

Nic j said...

so how 'bout them lakers, huh?

karina said...

Let's see the bright side of the things: if the streak is over, it;s better to lose it with the Nats than with the Giants.

Besides, it ain't over 'till it's over

Alireza said...

Good eye by Zimmerman.

Nic j said...

that was a bright spot

Orel said...

We're dropping like flies!

Dusto Magnifico said...

if dukes gets a hit, then all 8 of their starters would have gotten a multi hit game.

Nic j said...

Karina, im with you. anything is better than losing to the hated ones.

karina said...

That was a sweet defensive play.

Orel said...

Just your usual K-1-4-1 DP.

Dusto Magnifico said...

im just assuming dukes will get up this inning.

karina said...

It's going to be better tomorrow, right?

Alireza said...

CRAZY PLAY.

Nic j said...

that it karina!!

(the sun will come out, tomorrow, tomorrow)

Alireza said...

I kind of hope Dukes has a multi-hit game now. It means the Dodgers got into extras.

Nic j said...

everybody!!!

Alireza said...

Orel - K-2-4-2 ;-)

Nic j said...

come on we scored 6 in the 1st we can do it again!!

Orel said...

Thanks, Alireza. I'm so bad at that.

Nic j said...

hey orel you should put a countdown timer up.

49 games left.

Dusto Magnifico said...

im convinced i can get a hit off of Kip Wells.

Orel said...

Really—if you're lurking? Stop lurking.

Dusto Magnifico said...

atta boy huddy!

Alireza said...

Dusto - Normally I am too. He is throwing serious heat out of the BP though.

Anyone else remember that Martin is a fastball hitter ;-)

Orel said...

Wonder if I can find a widget for that, Nic.

Orel said...

O-Dog won't go down without a fight!

Alireza said...

O-Dog hustles.

karina said...

So, Vin says "one for four", i see King James at the plate and i only can think is Juan Pierre. I need to overcome this frustration.

Dusto Magnifico said...

"groundout to second" comes to bat.

Orel said...

A HR means...we're still losing!

Dusto Magnifico said...

scratch that.

karina said...

That's King James moving the runner to third.

Orel said...

bloopity bloop

karina said...

Orel, that's my son!

Orel said...

A chance to tie it up. That's all you can ask for in a situation like this.

Alireza said...

IN PLAY, RUN(S)

Dusto Magnifico said...

oh billy. billy billy billy....

Alireza said...

Matt Kemp + Fastball = Happy day.

Dusto Magnifico said...

in play, run(s)...

drooling?

karina said...

"A Hr here means...new game"

just sayin'

Alireza said...

Can we officially declare the slump of Russell Nathan Jeanson Coltrane Martin over?

Nic j said...

come onnnnnnnn cassseeeeeyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!

karina said...

Still in the game, they can do it!

Alireza said...

BISON!

Orel said...

Unbelievable. Kemp hits a dribbler and Zimmerman pulls Johnson off the bag. 11-9 Nats.

Orel said...

I hear ya, Karina!

Nic j said...

casey needs a HR for the cycle, just saying

Orel said...

SHIT

Nic j said...

damn

Alireza said...

This is thrilling

Nic j said...

hey, at least we went down fighting.

Alireza said...

Well damn it.

Dusto Magnifico said...

f u casey!

worst signing EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

karina said...

We can't say they didn't put a good fight.

Dusto Magnifico said...

that was my bill plascxhke imitation

Orel said...

True, Nic.

Nic j said...

dust, thats a little dramatic.

remember andruw?

JP?

Brown?

Orel said...

At least we didn't lose on a Broxton BS.

Nic j said...

oh ok, haha, i was actually gonna call you that.

Orel said...

Dusto is cursing with his heart!

karina said...

J.D. Drew?

Orel said...

Too late for that kind of talk!

Nic j said...

good one karina.

and you can blame drew for the JP signing.

karina said...

That's the part that makes me to hate him with all my guts, because of him, we have to keep Pierre.

Nic j said...

you can blame boras on that a little too.

karina said...

Of course, but Boras redeemed with Manny.

Nic j said...

manny well...

haha jk i still love manny.

Orel said...

Post-Game Thread is up, for you insomniacs.

karina said...

he's going to be largely missed, but i'm crossing fingers he can get away of this sooner.

karina said...

no 600?

Dusto Magnifico said...

yeah... still bitter about a loss to the Nats...

Dusto Magnifico said...

easy to blame Torre on this one.

Dusto Magnifico said...

"free xavier paul"

Orel said...

"Chasing 600," Karina?
