STGT: @ Angels, 7p

James Loney and Manny Ramirez greet old friend Guillermo Mota.


Donnie and Preston Baseball.

From Dodgers.com:

The Dodgers will travel down the 5 Freeway to Anaheim to play the Angels in an exhibition game at Angel Stadium on Friday at 7:05 p.m. PT. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw will make his final Spring Training tuneup before he's scheduled to start in the second game of the regular season against the Pirates on Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Loney Fan said...

On our way to the stadium! Go dodgers!

Josh S. said...

Oh man, that Manny/Mota (heh) pic could lead to some incriminating Photoshops.

Neeebs said...

Why is Andre not playing?

Josh S. said...

There is no Dodger broadcast on TV, correct? I seem to be only getting the Angel broadcast on My13.

Dusty Baker said...

Nope, it's the My13 broadcast. Actually looking forward to hearing Victor Rojas. Aside from his Angeldom, I really liked him as a baseball commentator when eh was on MLB Network.

Santana=Amish?

Dusty Baker said...

Furcal w leadoff double. He's not running very well is he?

Dusty Baker said...

JMart, hitting for power already!

Orel said...

Free preview on MLB.tv is broke.

Dusty Baker said...

Gotta get more runs out of that favorable situation, guys.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice first out, KKKKKKershaw!

Dusty Baker said...

Abreu looks like he trained with...me...during the offseason.

#fatass

Dusty Baker said...

Half to Tokyo on hand to watch Matsui.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, this game thread tastes almost like the real thing!

Nic j said...

Santana gets pounded by Johnson

Dusty Baker said...

Reed Johnson going yard!

Mr. Customer said...

Santana seems to be right back where he left off last year.

Dusty Baker said...

Santana seems a long way from that big Grammy-winning comeback album.

Mr. Customer said...

That was useful

Sauerkraut said...

Great double play. Now, if only the beard would return.

Nic j said...

That's fucking aggrivating as hell.

Dusty Baker said...

Kershaw looks CONFIDENT. He's thrown a curve on two out pitches that I noted, resulting in a K on both.

Nic j said...

Kershaw starting to waiver a bit.

Man it would have been nice to cash some of those runners we had in.

dodgerbobble said...

Stay composed Clayton.

Mr. Customer said...

Nice recovery.

Dusty Baker said...

GA stickin it to his old mates!

Mr. Customer said...

Stranded lead off doubles leave me...unfulfilled.

Nic j said...

Are they broadcasting from the fountain? What's all that noise?

Nic j said...

The highlight video of reeds homer is titled "johnsons solo Jack" on MLB at bat. HA!

Dusty Baker said...

Niiiice, Nic!

Dusty Baker said...

"Deep enough to score Johnson" <-what I told my prom date

Josh S. said...

Joe is getting the most out of his Johnson.

Oh, and if we return Monasterios to the Phillies, I will punch a kitten in the face.

Mr. Customer said...

Thank the gods he's not going to be an everyday starter.

Loney Fan said...

Just had to warn a group of nine year olds that they are allowed to scream anything but Dodgers suck.

Dusty Baker said...

See that fat fuck wearing the Angels onesie? #TOOL

Not the guy wearing the Dodgers onesie, though. He's cool.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice DP!

Sorry, I was watching some porn.

Nice double play, Carroll, et al!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Velocity's still a bit off (by Broxton standards), but he seems to be getting into rhythm.

Josh S. said...

Russell hit ball?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Martin hit a single, but not a home run. Clearly his power is gone. Bring in Ausmus.

Josh S. said...

Stupid.com?

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Followed up by a shot up the middle, natch.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least the Angels broadcasters are showing us a little respect by not handing Colorado the division right now.

Mr. Customer said...

Closser's got a bit of the concerned/constipated Jeff Kent face on him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It is not Miller Time.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dammit. Miller the Tattooed Lady, you suck.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd have to rewind the Tivo, but I'd swear I saw a lone African-American Angels supporter in the crowd.

Dusty Baker said...

Miller, can you read this eyechart:

AAA

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn good thing Miller the Tattooed Lady is not going to be on the big league roster.

Nic j said...

I know it's preseason, but in tired of this bullshit.

Nic j said...

DB. The black dude was probably Tony Reagins. Haha

Mr. Customer said...

Please keep in mind that the bus to Albuquerque is idling in the parking lot, Mr. Miller.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I like Scioscia's face. He's probably thinking, "Why the hell is everyone so excited?"

Dusty Baker said...

Nice aggressive throw (and on target) Johnson!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hah.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Announcer: Now batting, Hanley...
Crowd: YAAAAHHAHAHA
Announcer: Statia
Crowd: Fuck

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's why you've been stuck in the minors, Hu. Bastard.

Nic j said...

Hu must feel like a bigger dick than Greg Oden.

Mr. Customer said...

If I don't hate losing the the damn Angels, I'll be dipped in shit.

dodgerbobble said...

Wonderful ending.

At least the Lakers are taking care of business.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I haven't seen so many white people cheering for a black guy since the DNC.

Mr. Customer said...

Dodgers lose, but MLASF for the win.

I call that a wash.

Josh S. said...

The Dodgers won this game. The Isotopes lost it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nice, Josh.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well, losses are starting to piss me off, so it must mean the season's close to starting. I'll see you all tomorrow afternoon.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm headed to bed. Anyone else waking up early for the ManU v CHelsea match?

*ducks*

dodgerbobble said...

Dusty - Yeah, I've got the alarm set for 4:30. Unfortunately, I won't get to see the entire match.

Neeebs said...

(Who) will never be a major leaguer!

Mr. Customer said...

@neeebs

I'll take Taiwanese middle infielders for 600, Alex.

Neeebs said...

Ding ding ding

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

Yup. I need a pick-me-up after that Benfica match, and a throttling of them red devils is just the thing.

Dusty Baker said...

"throttling of them red devils is just the thing."

Whooo the fuck are Man United?

Steve Sax said...

Hu makes Blake DeWitt's awful defense vs the Indians even more concerning.

It's only spring training, though. Keep your Chin-Lung up!

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

I've always found it funny that we stole the Brit's drinking song for our national anthem, and they stole our abolition hymn as a football taunt.

I hope your boys come through, because I need to work up a good froth to prepare for City this week.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Mr. C-

Ironic, ain't it? I believe that's why the State Department calls it a Special Relationship.

I won't make any comment about a certain historically famous football club stealing a fine enough Johnny Cash song and making it a Kop End staple. ;-)

Mr. Customer said...

*furtively*

Wouldn't know anything 'bout that...

Mr. Customer said...

I wouldn't call it a throttling, but it will do.

Mr. Customer said...

Also, looking at the fixtures, I'm realizing the Reds don't even face off against City again this season, which would be embarrassing, but for the fact that we're not playing any clubs at the top of the table except 1 last gasp v Chelsea in May.

Dusty Baker said...

For the record:

Who the fuck are Man United,
Who the fuck are Man United,
Who the fuck are Man United,
And the Blues go marching on!
