Game 2 Thread: April 7 @ Pirates, 4p

INVISIBLE HOVERCRAFT

Clayton Kershaw (-, -.--) vs. Ross Ohlendorf (-, -.--).

Gameday

COMMENTS: Nothing like an off-day to mull over a sucky start-o'-the-season battering and watch the Giants take first place in the division. Whatever reason Joe Torre had for booting up his iPadilla on Opening Day is moot, for Clayton Kershaw, who would look like a porcupine if we could see all the hopes pinned upon him, is taking the mound.

So enjoy today's g— what's this? Another note from Sax?

DAM...mit?

koufax said...

does russ ortiz only have one pitch, or is he just trying to get everyone used to his 90 mph fastball?

Orel said...

How long will MLASF's 200 streak last?

MR. F said...

Connect Two?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stupid Giants, can't even spell their own city.

http://bit.ly/bAaC20

MR. F said...

HAHAHAHAHHA. Nice find.

koufax said...

i think it would be important to put some runs on the board here and maybe win this game

koufax said...

good to see a healthy furcal running

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Those were some bad pitches to swing at.

koufax said...

ugly

MR. F said...

Come on James. Make a LoneyFan out of all of us.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was no strike.

Orel said...

MLASF, can we post that? But only if you don't plan to use it at SCSH.

Orel said...

That's no moon.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn.

Nah, I won't use it. Got it from Ben Maller's twitter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So far Russ Ortiz is pitching (gasp) WELL

Paul said...

Hi all!

Casey's bat shatters....like my hopes.

My the force DeWitt you Blake!

Paul said...

may the force and never mind DeWitt. Jeez.

Paul said...

At least Martin's swing looks good.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Is it possible to score another run?

Steve Dittmore said...

Here in Fayetteville... Arkansas Razorbacks lead St. Louis University Billikens 24-5... in the top of the 5th. Coach has already pulled all of the starters.

Josh S. said...

Sherrill? *hides*

karen said...

I've officially broken out the chocolate

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sherrill-y you can't be serious?

Josh S. said...

Wow!

Steve Dittmore said...

For those of you who follow Dodger draft picks who did not sign, I have a feeling we will be regretting not signing Razorback 3B Zach Cox out of HS. He was Dodgers' 20th round pick in 2008. He is hitting .420 this season as a sophomore and recently had 24 game hitting streak snapped. He will be good.

Paul said...

time to make dreams happen.

Josh S. said...

*climbs back down off the chandelier*

I have a chandelier?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's see if Jamey can work a walk.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jamey double!

koufax said...

nice

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wild thang! You make my heart sing!

Mr. Customer said...

I'm telling you, it's Jamie's superior depth perception.

Paul said...

k let's play smart.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jeez, Raffy

Paul said...

okay Matty let's get this run in.

koufax said...

a fly ball for the game please

Mr. Customer said...

@Steve Dittmore

20th round? Draft and follow perhaps?

koufax said...

come on man

dodgerbobble said...

Damn

Mr. Customer said...

Shit

Paul said...

ya can't be serious!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

NO MATT NO

koufax said...

i forgot how much watching this team negatively affects my health

Dusty Baker said...

@Steve

Diamond Hogs having a good day today, eh?

Steve Dittmore said...

@Mr. C

Not sure. I think it will be pretty hard for Cox to fly under the radar. He is easily the best hitter on a team that went to the College World Series last year and is ranked No. 10 in the nation right now.

PS - WTF Kemp?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's now on Manny's shoulders.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCK

Paul said...

Fuck!!!

I am hitting the showers.

Mr. Customer said...

That's not good.

Steve Dittmore said...

@Dusty - 26-7 now in top of 6. First 12 batters reached base safely. It was 11-0 before St. Louis got an out.

PS - WTF Manny?

Dusty Baker said...

GOD DAMMIT. How can we strand a man on 3rd w no outs? How fucking hard is it to dink on into right? Good teams do this effortlessly.

Nic j said...

Man, Pitt. sure is having a nice week. First the clobber us on opening day now they might get a walk off win.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp is the only guy you can get mad at. Put the ball in play, seriously.

Nic j said...

still cant get a runner home from third with no outs.

its like nothing has changed from last year.

Dusty Baker said...

@Steve

Wow - per a friend, Hogs sent 18 men to the plate in the first inning, scoring a school record 14 runs.

Dusty Baker said...

Totally, MLASF.

Nic j said...

The clippers play right after this game? thats like 6 straight hours of sports futility for prime ticket.

Dusty Baker said...

Can a man get a friggin' drink around here? Do I have to go down the street to Jason's place?

Dusty Baker said...

Furcal! Nice. Didn't get the runner but what a throw!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

How can someone with the name Jones be so good?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Two away.

rbnlaw said...

New beer opened. Ready for extras.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Whew. Inning over. Only two games into the season and already we get extras.

rbnlaw said...

Tron, takin care o bidness.

Dusty Baker said...

Cusquena -check.

Nic j said...

Do we really need a clippers preview?

Heres your preview. "Clippers suck, they gave up on the season a long time ago"

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

That usually only works if you play for Atlanta.

rbnlaw said...

My kid is actually at the Clipper game. Of course, she didn't pay anything.

rbnlaw said...

Scabby in for the Bucs.

Steve Dittmore said...

Anyone else watching the Pirates TV feed? Why do the announcers insist on reminding us this is the first night game of the year? Doesn't that seem irrelevant?

Hogs now up 30-7, bases loaded, bottom of 6. Hope those kids make it to class tomorrow morning.

Dusty Baker said...

@Prof Dittmore

Which class?

rbnlaw said...

Time for Loney's breakout.

Steve Sax said...

Show me something, Loney!

Steve Sax said...

Coaxes the leadoff walk!

Nic j said...

"Time for Loney's breakout."

technically with a .000 BA for the season a walk is a breakout.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Joyce!

The Delino said...

Hi Everybody!

Nic j said...

Well, that sucks.

rbnlaw said...

Good point, Nic.

Now a fucking basehit would be nice.

rbnlaw said...

Was Loney trying to steal a sign?

Steve Sax said...

We cannot hit with RISP

The Delino said...

The curse of the Compton Colons (aka my fantasy team)

Furcal-Loney-Blake
0 for 11

aka ZERO POINT ZERO

rbnlaw said...

"There picking up this year right where they left off."
-Steve Lyons, aka Mr. Brightside

Nic j said...

You think in spring training they would have gone over what "productive out" means.

Nic j said...

Were going to need three more walks if we want to win.

Steve Sax said...

Now any base is an out.

Quit it with the split screen! No one cares about the Clips/Blazers!

Nic j said...

praying for two straight balks

Steve Dittmore said...

@Dusty - I have the starting pitcher from tonight in class. He was pulled after a couple of innings, probably so he could pitch Sunday. So, he should be showered and home by now :). Game over by slaughter rule, 32-8 Hogs win.

dodgerbobble said...

No more Clippers split screens!

rbnlaw said...

Walks ain't gonna get it done.

rbnlaw said...

Raffy, WTF?

The Delino said...

LONEY GONZALEZ!

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

rbnlaw said...

I guess this is one way to get people to watch the Clippers.

rbnlaw said...

Approaching 300

Steve Dittmore said...

2

Number of Dodgers to hit the ball out of the infield since the fifth inning (Martin line out & Carroll double)

rbnlaw said...

Warm up tosses are more interesting.

Steve Sax said...

What the fuck DeWitt

rbnlaw said...

O-Dog woulda had him.

The Delino said...

Who's more ignored by their own home city? The Clippers or the PirateS?

rbnlaw said...

. . .and I had 300. E-rbn.

Dusty Baker said...

@Dittmore

Will you give him grief about pitch location tomorrow?

The Delino said...

The Mini Delino went to bed without a fight. The Mrs. Delino just brought me a beer. The Dog Delino brought me a toy. All is well.

Paul said...

If I wanted to watch the Clippers I would put miself in the crazy home.

Steve Sax said...

Now watch the Pirates show what to do with a leadoff man on first, successfully sacrificed to second.

I'm gonna puke.

rbnlaw said...

@Delino:
Who are the Clippers again?

Dusty Baker said...

1) I love how most of the people sitting behind home plate are Dodger fans.

2) FUCK THE CLIPPER GAME.

3) See #2 above.

The Delino said...

Milledge = Punk = Schmuck

The Delino said...

I think they'e the team that played the Globetrotters

Nic j said...

ump wants to go home, starting to squeeze.

Steve Sax said...

This is really deflating.

Fred's Brim said...

balls

can you release a guy during the game?

Dusty Baker said...

Shussshh it, Churchie!

The Delino said...

Just saw - Russ Ortiz putting up another gem. Maybe there's a 16th minute of fame

Nic j said...

Oh good, church can kill us again.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Who'd have thought Ramon would end up being the worse of the Ortizes.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Shit, it's Church.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BRING IN MONASTERIOS

Steve Sax said...

Let's cut over to the Clipper game to show a timeout huddle. Great call!

Steve Dittmore said...

Here's a theory, tied to the divorce.

The more games the Pirates win early in the season, the more fan interest exhibited. The more fan interest, the more ticket sales. The more ticket sales, the more local revenue for the Pirates. The more more local revenue, the less the Dodgers have to pay in revenue sharing at the end of the season, around the time the trial is concluding.

rbnlaw said...

Stay off the fucking Clipper game already.

Steve Sax said...

I have had it with Ortiz

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why did the Dodgers get saddled with the crappy of the two FOX Sports networks? Angels get Lakers and Kings, we get Clips and Ducks.

Steve Sax said...

Torre is waving but may as well have a white flag

dodgerbobble said...

I'm gonna have a heart attack and it's only the second game of the season.

rbnlaw said...

Walks ain't gonna get it d. . .oh wait, it's Ortiz.

If ramon had done this in ST, we wouldn't be worrying right now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh we're screwed.

Dusty Baker said...

The split screen showing Dodgers situation and Clippers game - picture of shite.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCK THE FUCKING CLIPPERS

Steve Sax said...

High pressure game for us and it's against the Pirates in game 2. What does this portend?

The Delino said...

I just turned the game on - this split screen is freaking me out

Steve Sax said...

Pirates look destined to win on a walkoff walk

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least we don't have to listen to the Clippers' guys...

Wait, wouldn't that be an improvement?

The Delino said...

Sax - I'm one hit away from calling everyone I know from Pittsburgh and yelling at them. You've seen me do it before.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Poor Clipper Darrell.

rbnlaw said...

Fuck me.

The Delino said...

See... Milledge=schmuck

dodgerbobble said...

AAAAHHHH!!!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We're gonna get fucking swept.

Fred's Brim said...

why am I already tired of this?

Mr. Customer said...

Fuckitall

Steve Sax said...

Ramon Ortiz, you suck.

dodgerbobble said...

DAMn.

Steve Sax said...

The Collins curse continues!

rbnlaw said...

There is no fucking way that the pundits are right.

A pox upon thee, Frank McCourt!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's already two games in and we look like fucking schmucks.

The Delino said...

Maybe we'll see them again the playoffs... in 2045

Spanky said...

Well that was a shame

Steve Sax said...

Delino, make sure you call our friend's high school prom date. What is she up to these days?

I need a primani sandwich.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bring up the GDMFSPOSPGT

Josh S. said...

My Prime Ticket froze and I missed the walkoff.

Best thing that happened all night.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think the best thing right now is to hope the Pirates do well. It's like when the Patriots lost to the Dolphins after Miami's really bad season. Everyone was saying, "Holy crap, that's pathetic, you guys lost to the Dolphins, you guys really suck balls." Then the Dolphins went to the postseason.

Krusty Baker said...

McCourts...I'm lookin' at you.

They're the easy scapegoat, but jeus shit, how are we supposed to go through the season with old washed up men pitching and no real proven ace?

PISSED.OFF.

Changing my screen name until we win.

Steve Dittmore said...

I added up some stats going back to last year's 4-game series in late September at Pittsburgh. In those six games (4 in 2009 and 2 in 2010), LAD is...

11-54 RISP (.204)
45 LOB

Yuk.

Ned's Rim said...

I'm changing my name too

Mr. Royally Pissed at the Dodgers Right Now said...

I am jumping on the bandwagon and changing my name too.

Krusty Baker said...

At least we didn't give up 2 HRs in two games to JJ Hardy. #Angels

Buck Nekkid said...

I have also changed my name. . .and will remain unclothed until the Dudgers win.

Giants 3-0
Dodgers 0-2
No English teams left in the Champion's League.

My world is upside down, and my beer is empty.

Buck Nekkid said...

I think we need the Blue Babes, STAT.

SIC (OF FUCKING LOSING) J said...

I too am changing my name.

Buck Nekkid said...

Now I kind of hope we don't win for a while. The names are great.

Krusty Baker said...

@Buck

I know...I had mixed feelings today - like to see MU lose but no ENG clubs left in EU is a downer.

Krusty Baker said...

Sux and Oral- You guys following suit?

Josh S(ituational hitting!) said...

Jumping on the name change bandwagon.

Buck Nekkid said...

@KB (got to get used to the new handles)
I know how you feel; and to get knocked out by Bayern? Barca is one thing, but Bayern?

Fucking Messi is a soccer god.

Mr. Royally Pissed at the Dodgers Right Now said...

Boy we get sour after two losses.

Buck Nekkid said...

So, how's that Clipper game going?

Buzz Killington said...

Hey guys cheer up!

Krusty Baker said...

Cheer up, indeed: At least we're not wearing Snuggies or hideously- coloured argyle hats like some other semi-local baseball teams I know.

Mr. Curseword said...

@Buck

I'm all-in for Ze Germans. I hate both Barca and Inter, and I'm sure as hell not pulling for a Ligue 1 side.

Buzz Killington said...

I for one believe this Dodgers team is a spirited bunch with an Owner who is quite the ladies man.

very well good game chaps jolly jolly good show.

Krusty Baker said...

Just reading "Ligue 1" makes me giggle.

See what you did, McCourts? You got us talking about European football. I hope you're happy.

Messi is a football god. He could have probably gotten a sac fly for the go ahead run for us late in the game, even.

Mr. Curseword said...

Oh, and fully in agreement that Messi is ridiculous.

Krusty, out. Let's fuck up the Pie Rats tomorrow and get out of town with what is left with our dignity, some hooch, and as few STDs as possible.
