Game 34 Thread: May 12 @ Phillies, 4p

MANNYWATCH: 46 GAMES

Clayton Kershaw (1-2, 4.91) vs. Chan Ho Park (0-1, 6.67).

COMMENTS:

Owner: Take this object, but beware it carries a terrible curse!
Homer: [worried] Ooooh, that's bad.
Owner: But it comes with a free Frogurt!
Homer: [relieved] That's good.
Owner: The Frogurt is also cursed.
Homer: [worried] That's bad.
Owner: But you get your choice of topping!
Homer: [relieved] That's good.
Owner: The toppings contains Potassium Benzoate.
Homer: [stares]
Owner: That's bad.

The Dodgers face Chan Ho Park today.
That's good.
But they have to face the rest of the Phillies as well.
That's bad.
Russell Martin is heating up.
That's good.
But Rafael Furcal is still slumping.
That's bad.
Although not as much as Jimmy Rollins.
That's good.
The Dodgers are 1-3 since Manny got suspended.
That's bad.
But the Phillies are barely over .500 at 15-14.
That's good.
The Giants are only four games behind the Dodgers.
That's bad.
But the other NL West teams are at least 8.5 games back.
That's good.
I don't know how to end this.
That's bad.

Erin said...

Thank god.

Nic j said...

damn, that was nice.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Holy Crap, he got Utley to strikeout.

karina said...

I hope he regains his confidence by next inning.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm out for about a half-hour. Gonna go pick up some vittles.

karina said...

Erin, by the way, you weren't off with your translation, i guess the translator were looking for rhyme.

Alireza said...

Well, at least Clayton owns Utley.

Steve Sax said...

Whew! K on Utley. Come on, Blue, get some runs back.

karina said...

That's good

karina said...

It's the middle of the order, let's have some hope.

Erin said...

That's true, Karina. My Spanish isn't good enough to consider rhyme.

Nic j said...

wow the kid with a leg single!!!

Alireza said...

Crank this one Clayton.

karina said...

We need it's the Beast at the plate, not Slappy.

Alireza said...

Minotaur with an infield hit to the best defensive 2B in baseball.

Erin said...

Nice job, Clayton! Now come on, Pierre. Beast Mode.

karina said...

Gameday here is slow and crazy.

Nic j said...

damn JP, your taking loneys job.

Alireza said...

WHY WASN'T PIERRE BUNTING?

Erin said...

Ugh.

karina said...

*the it's was grammatically incorrect. I'm sorry.

Alireza said...

You are boring me Jai-Ho.

Alireza said...

At what point does Pierre does what he is best at?

Nic j said...

raffy continues the cold streak.

karina said...

Tomorrow ESPN is broadcasting the game. The wonders of having the best record on the MLB.

rbnlaw said...

Took a nap during that last half inning and woke up to Kershaw beating out the ground ball.
My world is spinning.

Nic j said...

ESPN probably thought the Red Sox were playing.

Nic j said...

park hurt or something?

Erin said...

Who's injured?

Alireza said...

Who got hurt?

Nic j said...

park looked like he tweaked his ankle. he looks fine though.

Alireza said...

Seriously. It bugs me when the person running Gameday falls asleep at the wheel.

karina said...

Hahahahaha, Nic. But it also means Erin can watch the game on TV and the ESPN deportes announcers are very good.

Nic j said...

enough with the overhead camera!!

rbnlaw said...

Chan Ho Cy Young?

Erin said...

That's right, Karina. I can watch it. And I will. But I'll have the American ESPN broadcast, actually. That's what the hotel gives me.

Erin said...

Hey, Dodgers? Chan Ho Park is not this good. Hit the damn ball.

Alireza said...

Park threw a hell of a pitch there.

rbnlaw said...

Your Los Angeles Dodgers; making journeyman pitchers look great since 1958.

Alireza said...

2 pitch out is nice.

Alireza said...

5 pitch 2 outs is nicer.

Nic j said...

hmm, 8 pitches? wtf

Alireza said...

7 pitch inning is even nicer.

Great work Clayton.

rbnlaw said...

1-2-3: order restored?

Erin said...

A seven-pitch inning? Where the hell was this in the fourth?

Dusto Magnifico said...

manually updating gameday... ugh! to say the least!

Alireza said...

Actually, it was 7 Nic. He owes a bit of that to his defense though.

Nic j said...

dont blame me, im going by what eric collins said.

Nic j said...

room service to 1st care of ethier.

Orel said...

HOW ARE WE LOSING TO CHAN HO PARK

Nic j said...

this is pathetic.

Erin said...

Awesome.

Nic j said...

maybe they just owe him a favor.

Alireza said...

Well that inning sucked.

At least Loney hit it the other way.

rbnlaw said...

These broadcasts are killing me without Vin.

karina said...

Game isn't over...yet

Erin said...

How's the Phillies' bullpen this year?

Dusto Magnifico said...

gameday is currently showing that Ethier is up and there is a man on third (ethier is leading off the inning) even stranger... the man on third is Rollins.

Nic j said...

its the eric collins curse

Nic j said...

HBP

Nic j said...

claytons coming out, JMAC in.

Alireza said...

Don't pull Clayton yet.

Nic j said...

too late for that.

Alireza said...

Eric Collins is no Vin Scully.

Dusto Magnifico said...

James Loney grounds out! You dont say?

Dusto Magnifico said...

(So I'm like 30 mins behind everyone here)

Alireza said...

Can Gameday be any slower?

Erin said...

Yeah Dusto, you are pretty far behind.

Erin said...

My Gameday seems to be doing okay.

rbnlaw said...

Yay! Jimmy Mac. . .ugh.

Nic j said...

well dusto, let me tell you from 30 minutes in the future that it doesnt get much better.

karina said...

Does someone remember Feliz had 8 or 9 RBI on a 3 game series in Philadelphia? he even didn't play in all games and in one of the games, he was a substitute and he drove the winning run in...

Orel said...

It's becoming a pattern: Score one run in the first inning, get shut down for the next few.

McD with a four-pitch walk. Great.

rbnlaw said...

J. Mac, wild? No!

Nic j said...

well...

Erin said...

Unless you think a four-pitch walk to Feliz (again) is "better."

Alireza said...

J-Mac failed in his nibble attempt. He really needs to throw his change and split more.

rbnlaw said...

At least the throw to 1st wasn't wild.

Nic j said...

park is out, im not sure if thats good or bad.

karina said...

Please, J-Mac, Park should be an easy out.

Nic j said...

dobbs is PH for park

karina said...

Nic j, it's gonna be good...we need the optimism.

Dusto Magnifico said...

thanks nik

time to go home anyway.

laters. i'm leaving a little bit of hope for gameday and the dodgers when I get home.

Nic j said...

its hard to be optimistic when you are actually watching this garbage.

Erin said...

Okay. Nice job, J-Mac.

Alireza said...

When will J-Mac learn that he doesn't need to throw a first pitch fastball every time?

Nic j said...

how many runs has kemp saved this year.

karina said...

Do you think Kemp could be a runner-up for a Gold Glove?

Nic j, there's always room to improve, hence we all need to believe.

Erin said...

I guess we'll see if he's staying in to bat for himself next inning. It depends on what the two guys in front of him do, maybe.

Alireza said...

Nic - Kemp's UZR/150 is currently above 20, and that is without his arm rate being high because no one will run on him.

Alireza said...

Karina - At this point, Kemp should win a Gold Glove.

Sons of said...

C'mon let's put a...uh...turban...on Durbin!

I am no Natalie.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Dodgers just need to hit.

Alireza said...

Feliz is a defensive stud and Matty got jammed a bit.

Erin said...

Well, Kemp didn't help us.

Alireza said...

If GameSlow is any indicator, Durbin works fast.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Blake runs out of strikes.

Alireza said...

LET J-MAC HIT JOE.

Erin said...

So who will pitch the bottom of the eighth?

Erin said...

300.

Alireza said...

This is so ugly. Joe Torre has no idea how to manage a bullpen and a bench.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now it's the X-factor

Nic j said...

durbin coming out already?

XP batting.

Alireza said...

Ok Xavier, turn on something.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's get some runs.

Alireza said...

oooooh. We got a gift there on the first pitch.

Nic j said...

no help from XP

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nothing doing in the 7th. Only six more outs to go.

Alireza said...

Please Joe. Keep Ohman in for Werth.

Alireza said...

And one more thing. Please never bring Ohman in for Adrian Gonzalez again.

Nic j said...

nice jump on the ball by kemp

Alireza said...

I like Will Ohman. It is really too bad they Dodgers don't have both him and Beimel.

Alireza said...

Long delay on GD. Did Oh-Man pick Werth?

Nic j said...

nope

K's howard

Erin said...

K for Howard.

Orel said...

Nice job by Ohman to get Howard.

Alireza said...

Now just take care of J-Roll and we can try and score something. Then again, it is hard to be optimistic with Pierre and Furcal the first two outs...I mean batters.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

How does Werth steal so well?

Nic j said...

rocket boots.

Nic j said...

walk

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ohman walks Rollins.

Alireza said...

Who the hell made the call for Ohman to walk Rollins? Rollins is hitting around a buck and a half against LHP.

Alireza said...

MLSF - Werth is the more injury-prone white version of Matt Kemp. He can flat out fly.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This whole team is loaded.

Nic j said...

he almost had a wild pitch on that pitch out too.

Alireza said...

Once again, Russell Martin proves he is a premier defensive catcher.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh c'mon, not another double-steal. This is nuts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The bases are juiced.

Erin said...

It's nice to see us give up two double steals in the same game.

Alireza said...

Man. The pitchers are really hurting Russell's CS rate.

Nic j said...

bye bye ohman. hello belli.

Orel said...

RA for Belisario? Game over.

Alireza said...

Haven't seen Bellysario in a while.

rbnlaw said...

We look dead out there. No passion.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Here comes Belly in a tight situation. If anything, this clinches the whole "Torre plays favorites with pitchers" idea.

Nic j said...

thats embarrasing

rbnlaw said...

Well, there's the dagger.

Neeebs said...

That was embarassing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is insane. How the hell does Werth steal home!?

Nic j said...

way to fall alseep at the plate russ.

Alireza said...

Oh wow. How did Werth do that?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That does it. Game over. Just more chances to hear "1-4 without Manny"

Nic j said...

russ didnt check the man at third.

Alireza said...

5 runs on 5 hits is not healthy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Belly falls behind Ruiz.

Nic j said...

MLSF, the whole record without manny is stupid. If you take the best offensive player off of any team it will suffer. Im sick of that.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Pedro Feliz has walked four times. FOUR TIMES! This is not how you win a ballgame.

Alireza said...

Please don't walk the back up catcher who is hitting under the Mendoza line.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I know that. I'm just saying that ESPN, Fox Sports, Yahoo, that's all they will talk about, and I'm sick of it.

Alireza said...

Whew

Nic j said...

yeah i got you i wasnt arguing with you. im tired of it to. But hey at least it gets us on espn.

Orel said...

This is all Courtney Mortimer's fault.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

She spends too much time playing the obo.

Orel said...

Werth has stolen for the cycle.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is over. Madson is like Mota in 03, only no roids.

Orel said...

Of course, the fifth run ensures we will lose by one.

Alireza said...

I question whether Raffy has the bat speed to hit Madson's fastball anymore.

Nic j said...

this kinda reminds me of the scene in angels in the outfield where all of the ballplayers are asking the kid if the angels were around, waiting for the magic to happen.

Was Manny our angel?

Alireza said...

Raffy really isn't himself. That ball is deposited pre-back injury.

Nic j said...

i also have a fantasy where JP slips on a ball and injures his shoulder, only to have it heal with the tendons too tight. Giving him a super arm like in rookie of the year.

Alireza said...

The one promising note is that Lidge has been absolutely awful this year.

Nic j said...

or maybe McCourt will die and leave the team to his grandson, like in little big league.

Alireza said...

Keep fighting O-Dog

Nic j said...

nice at bat for the o dog

Alireza said...

Now THAT was a professional at bat.

Nic j said...

terrible at bat for andre

Alireza said...

Dre should have had that one.

Alireza said...

Madson threw 89 down the middle with no BRK or pFX. Andre should have sent that into orbit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Matt Stairs is still haunting us.

Nic j said...

maybe the dodgers could find that manny is actually innocent but the evidence is guarded by a huge dog in a blind mans house.

Nic j said...

man, got a gift on that out at first.

Alireza said...

Wow. Nice play. It is tough to double up Victorino.

Nic j said...

victorino was totally safe, bad call. ill take it though.

Orel said...

Keep going with the movie references, Nic!

Nic j said...

i dont think the movie reference rally is working orel.

Alireza said...

A double into the gap or a solo shot to jump start things would be nice Russ. I would take a walk too.

Nic j said...

maybe the catcher thinks lidge is to cocky so he will start tipping his pitches.

Nic j said...

K

Alireza said...

Damn Lidge's slider is good.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney's worked a full count.

Nic j said...

finally, i think loney just realized he was playing on the road.

Alireza said...

Rally Caps on!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney keeps the rally alive.

Nic j said...

crap, im blanking on movie references.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp's finished. Lidge's slider will get him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp pops up.

Alireza said...

Well, it wasn't a K.

Lets go Casey.

Orel said...

Tying run is at the plate.

Nic j said...

the baron of beard coming up with the single.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loretta needs to go deep.

Nic j said...

Get back loretta!!

Alireza said...

BTW, I am really not optimistic about this game now, because even if Blake homers, the next 2 guys up will be Loretta (presumably) and Pierre, who both have no power.

Orel said...

Showing bunt. That makes sense.

Alireza said...

Why the hell would he try to bunt with 2 outs?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loretta comes through!

Orel said...

Bloop single by Loretta makes it interesting. 5-3 Phillies....

Orel said...

Duckfart!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We could have used that in the LCS

Alireza said...

Bases Loaded for the LF. Oh wait, the LF is Juan Pierre.

Matt said...

This team fucking sucks without Manny. I don't have the slightest faith in any of these hitters. All of them -- ALL -- look completely lost against these retread Phillies pitchers. I am sorry, but this is a 10 game below .500 team without Manny
