Game 61 Thread: June 10 vs. Padres, 7p

MANNYWATCH: 19 GAMES
DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 19-12

Andre go boom.

Clayton Kershaw (3-4, 4.26) vs. Kevin Correia (2-4, 5.13).

COMMENTS: CK vs. KC. The Dodgers aim for a season-high 21 games over .500 tonight after last night's pleasantly refreshing display of power. For the Pads, the 28-year-old Correia continues to be statistically pretty much the same slightly below-average pitcher he was with the Giants. Meanwhile, the Dodgers' 21-year-old Kershaw looks to develop his ability to pitch deeper into games. He's 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA lifetime against San Diego.

Jeff Weaver = antidote to Kevin Eisenreichmanof.

Nic j said...

we got the wave and a beachball in one shot there.

Alireza said...

The ump's selective eyesight has returned.

rbnlaw said...

I miss those days when Mike Brito used to sit behind the plate with the radar and send hand signals up to the announcers telling them the speed.

Now we have the farking wave.

Nic j said...

got him! nice throw by russ

Nic j said...

and he did it over adrian.

rbnlaw said...

NAILED!

rbnlaw said...

Nic,
You mean Edgar.

Nic j said...

and gonzo goes down swinging at junk,

now lets get some runs!

Nic j said...

haha, i should have know by the right handed batter.

Nic j said...

i just thought adrian lost a lot of weight in between innings.

rbnlaw said...

Weaver's made one mistake. Hopefully he can go to the 7th and hand it off. He's really earned his keep in a couple of tough long relief situations.

Josh S. said...

Ah, good. Second page. Should be easier to follow the thread on my iPod now.

Nic j said...

kemp pops weaver out of the game.

Nic j said...

the hoff's up.

rbnlaw said...

Of course, Torre calls him back. Well, Wade has looked better.

I still can't believe Hoffmann come up to Ghost Riders in the Sky.

Doesn't exactly "scream pump me up!"

Nic j said...

11 down in a row, it seems like alot of pitchers are getting gem performances off of us.

rbnlaw said...

C'mon, 2 out nightmare.

Roberto said...

I don't know... Well I'm sure many of you will disagree with me but I didn't like it when Torre removed Kershaw out of the game with a 2-0 count.... Yes I understand that Kershaw sucked today. He was terrible! I know. But...why not let him get out of that jam? And if you were going to remove him, why didn't you do it before he tossed those two balls?

Just my opinion...

Nic j said...

damn, 12 in a row.

Josh S. said...

"I still can't believe Hoffmann come up to Ghost Riders in the Sky."

If he came out to the old Country Bear Jamboree version, that would be awesome.

rbnlaw said...

This is how you work a count

Josh S. said...

BEAST MODE DEACTIVATED

rbnlaw said...

Josh S,
So true.
Hoff sort of looks like the big bear who sang the "puddles of blood" song.

Alireza said...

I like bringing Wade back slowly as a middle inning trouble shooter.

Josh S. said...

I'm getting tired of holding my breath when Furcal fields a ball.

Alireza said...

Wade is getting his nasty back. I like it.

Orel said...

I hear you, Roberto, but Kershaw had every chance to get himself out of those jams. He didn't even come close.

Orel said...

Weak grounders from the Padres. This is more like it.

Nic j said...

wade looked good.

Alireza said...

Orel - Kershaw really had little control over those jams. The ump wouldn't call anything less than a heater down the pipe a strike.

Alireza said...

Another Kershaw ball. Is David Stern running MLB now?

Orel said...

The strike zone was a big factor. But a pitcher has to learn to adjust.

Alireza said...

Orel - It is hard to adjust to that zone and not get hammered something awful.

Alireza said...

Cory Wade...Cory Wade...Cory Wade

Orel said...

True, very true.

Nic j said...

finally the SD pen is warming up. were getting nowhere with Correia

Nic j said...

nice outing by wade

rbnlaw said...

For the record, I do not like the the mini buffalo ranch chicken sandwich commercial.
Of course, there's no where to go but down from the MSB heights.

Nic j said...

just couldn't quite reach all those notes. Nice attempt though

Steve Sax said...

Okay. I'm back. Same score from when I left.

One of the better GBAs I've heard sung. 8 of 10, imho.

Nic j said...

yes!! bullpen time.

rbnlaw said...

DVR finally caught up. Took a while to get the kids to bed and lunches made.

Neeebs said...

RBN: For the record, mini neeebs has been singing the Mini Sirloin Chix burger song all nite.

Also, I'm informed that Chile just qualified for the World Cup with a win over Bolivia today.

Now let's get some runs.

Orel said...

"just couldn't quite reach all those notes. Nice attempt though"

Very charitable of you.

rbnlaw said...

Time for Beard Power

Nic j said...

YES!! the work on the pen already starts.

Neeebs said...

Now that's a good start.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BEARD MODE

Orel said...

Beardly!

Nic j said...

haha, orel. Thumbs down for you?

Josh S. said...

HIRSUTE MODE

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's Jasper Beardly to you.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's a paddlin'

rbnlaw said...

Nice work, Chile.

rbnlaw said...

I love this Burke character.
Bring him home, Russ

Nic j said...

walk our worries away.

rbnlaw said...

Tying run aboard. Forkal to bunt?

Neeebs said...

So I've been told, Chile has a great coach. What the hell does a coach do in soccer?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

As long as it's not an out.

Orel said...

The Curse of Correia is being lifted! Two on, no out!

Orel said...

"haha, orel. Thumbs down for you?"

Didn't hear much. Didn't like what I heard.

rbnlaw said...

Neebs,
He fills out the line up card and looks very concerned during the match

Nic j said...

are you kidding me?!

rbnlaw said...

ugh.

Nic j said...

knock one out Mattie.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time for Kemp to shine.

Orel said...

Crappy ump.

Neeebs said...

Rbn: That's what I thought.

rbnlaw said...

Patience young Bison, patience.

rbnlaw said...

What did I say? This guy's all over the zone.

Nic j said...

gotta get the runners in kemp, i have lost faith in loretta.

Orel said...

Lay off the slider, Matty!

rbnlaw said...

Big pitch coming.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Important pitch here.

Nic j said...

what a way to ruin an inning.

rbnlaw said...

Nice hit and run.

Orel said...

oof

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit.

Josh S. said...

Um...that's the opposite of what I wanted.

Neeebs said...

That was our opportunity.

Steve Sax said...

Bearded leadoff 2b!

55 follows with a walk!

And we waste it all!

Nic j said...

well, one more inning before we get to see heath bell and his odd mechanics.

fanerman said...

Not a good idea Joe!!

rbnlaw said...

Are there Padre blogs that follow the games? Just wondering.

rbnlaw said...

Wrong Gonzalez to throw at.

Nic j said...

do the padres have any fans left?

Nic j said...

nice, DP.

Some runs would be nice now.

rbnlaw said...

GIDP!

Steve Sax said...

Orel, you're the numbers guy. How would we be on this homestand depending on our outcome tonight?

Nice DP raffy.

Nic j said...

dont stop believing!

Nic j said...

do it Dewitt!

Nic j said...

alright lead off walk, lets get it going.

rbnlaw said...

BDW with the walk. Time for Beast Mode!

Orel said...

"Orel, you're the numbers guy. How would we be on this homestand depending on our outcome tonight?"

6-3 with a win, 5-4 with a loss.

rbnlaw said...

Go with the pitch, Slappy.

rbnlaw said...

Stayin' Alive

Orel said...

Shin music!

Nic j said...

pierre should of hung in there, that was a free base

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

300

rbnlaw said...

299

Nic j said...

fights off all those pitches for a soft fly to left.

rbnlaw said...

Crap. Nice pull MLASF.

Orel said...

298?

Nic j said...

damn, maybe he can get a HR with someone on.

Dusto Magnifico said...

Juan Pierre is a waste!!!

rbnlaw said...

Anemic.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Time to unleash the O-Dog.

Josh S. said...

Come on, Dre!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Or not.

Nic j said...

I'm Ron Burgundy?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I love scotch, scotchy scotch scotch.

Nic j said...

wow, that hurt.

Steve Sax said...

Now would be a nice time for another Ethier HR. Pretend it's the ninth, andre!

Nic j said...

at least its one game closer to manny.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well that was a total loss.

rbnlaw said...

Padres' staff: Unhittable?

Dusto Magnifico said...

man on second and no outs and we cant get the run in!

ridiculous.

Josh S. said...

Ugh. Hopefully we can rough up Heath Bell. We owe him one (and haven't seen him since opening week, right?).

rbnlaw said...

"And they called it Sant Iago, which in German means whale's vagina."

rbnlaw said...

Time for ice cream.

Nic j said...

taco's warming up in the padres pen

Josh S. said...

I like him where he is, but lately I've been wishing Tron could be a starter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Tron is this year's Joe Beimal.

I say that because he hasn't given up a homer all season.

And I say that because the inning is over and any ironic turn of events is now impossible.

rbnlaw said...

I just wonder if there's something wrong with Kershaw. I mean besides the obvious.

Orel said...

C'mon Dodgers, mess up my Post-Game Thread!

Dusto Magnifico said...

its been a rough June for most of the club

Pierre - 263 (coming back)
Hudson - 138
Loney - 250
Blake - 240
Martin - 130
Furcal - 250

andre and Kemp are the only dudes doing anything worth a hoot. Kemp is the only guy that hasn't had a bad week yet.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bell given up two runs in an inning only once this season, May 30th against the Rockies.

Nic j said...

kershaw's only 21, i think alot of people see his potential and want him to be at his Max. He will come around.

rbnlaw said...

Ring the Bell.

Josh S. said...

What's with that little "me me me" finger dance Bell does?

Orel said...

"And I say that because the inning is over and any ironic turn of events is now impossible."

Tron's arm just fell off!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's not ironic.

Nic j said...

there you go dear.

Orel said...

Loney keeps hope alive!

rbnlaw said...

Nic,
Agree. Didn't see his mechanics tonight, so I'm not sure why he was so wild. Hopefully no injury.

Orel said...

"That's not ironic."

Darn you and your literary precision.

Nic j said...

what if tron would have hurt his arm slipping on joe beimels old robe. that would be kind of ironic.

rbnlaw said...

Bell does that same "lean in and let the arm hang" thing Brox does.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well that killed it. I'm calling it.

Orel said...

That was expected.

rbnlaw said...

GIDP? ugh

Nic j said...

Thats the game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's the ballgame.

Nic j said...

russ caps off a worthless night.

SF won tonight also.

Orel said...

I believe Bell leads the league, if not the majors, with his 18 saves.

Orel said...
