STGT: @ Cleveland, 7p

"Dear Ronald: Where were you? We waited and waited but finally decided that..."

From Dodgers.com:

The Dodgers play a night game at Goodyear against Cleveland, with Chad Billingsley getting the start. Jonathan Broxton and Jeff Weaver also are scheduled to pitch, but George Sherrill has been scratched to continue working on his mechanics in bullpen sessions. Position players that start this game will not make the final trip to Tucson, Ariz., on Tuesday and a game with Colorado. Hiroki Kuroda will pitch in a Minor League game at Camelback Ranch-Glendale on Monday, with Russell Martin catching.

Belli, we hardly know ye.

Dusty Baker said...

Flat Breezy needing to work on his mechanics is troubling. As good as he was for us last year after the trade, he has stank in Spring Training. Now we hear he's working on mechanics? Not good...

MR. F said...

I thought Belisario just got here?

Josh S. said...

I heard a great piece on Spring Training on All Things Considered on the way home. It had soundbites from Tommy, Larry Bowa, and Non-Beard Mode.

It's on the main page of NPR.org if that link doesn't work.

Headline on MLB.com:

Feast on the AL East tonight on MLB.tv

Because I don't get enough of that on ESPN?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

1-0 Tribe after two and a half.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Holy shit, Chad had a three-pitch second inning.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Andre smacks a two-run bomb. 2-1 Dodgers after three and a half.

Josh S. said...

Easy Dre, don't use 'em all up before the season starts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bills doesn't have the K's but his control looks excellent. In four innings, only eight balls.

Small Sample Size said...

7 more than John Kruk

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oooh, suh-nap!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Raffy hits sac fly, scores Ausmus, but Closser out at the plate. 3-1 Dodgers.

Josh S. said...

Was it a Closse play at the plate?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Okay, seriously, is Gameday messed up? Bills only has 31 pitches through five innings. Something's outta whack.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Masterson has 38! 38! Either everyone wants to hit the mattress early or Gameday has a serious glitch.

Dusty Baker said...

Watching Dbags v Pods. Pods telecast. They just ran a promo for an Eckstein bobblehead. I thought, "ACTUAL SIZE!"

Dusty Baker said...

BTW Pods just smackin' the shit out of Dbags. Dbags look like Little Leaguers.

Mr. Customer said...

Ok, it's time for the season to start already.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Less than one week, less than one week, less than one week...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It took nearly two and a half hours, but Steiner and Monday finally broke down into giggles.

Dusty Baker said...

I expected you to say "It took nearly two and a half hours, but Steiner and Monday finally broke down and gave the score."

Mr. Customer said...

Oy, what a bunch of hyenas.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Apparently, we're winning 8-1. Very, very interesting.

But stupid.

Dusty Baker said...

Can someone update GameDay to reflect the actual, current score?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So Obama will throw out the first pitch for the Nats. (insert snarky one-liner here)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

"Standing around and lolly-gagging"

Our heir-apparent to Vin, ladies and gentlemen.

Dusty Baker said...

"I rammed through health care reform but that's nothing compared with turning around the Nats."

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't wait for Gameday to return to normal. I hate SP Gameday.

rbnlaw said...

@Mr. F:
Note, I said, "know ye," not "knew ye."

I need the season opener, STAT!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I give props to the people cheering for a Cleveland leadoff double while trailing 11-2. Though most of them sound like girls who think a four-seamer is how you describe thin quilts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Helloooo, Newman.

Dusty Baker said...

Newman and Costanza hitting back to back!
