Game 30 Thread: May 8 vs. Rockies, 7p

Charlie Haeger (0-3, 6.56) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (1-0, 0.00).

(Click on each logo to bring up their respective doohickeys.)

COMMENTS: Someday Jhoulys Chacin will face Jhonny Peralta and my head will jhust explode. Jhoulys is actually pronounced "Yo-lease," which is what your landlord yells when you're trying to recover your security deposit. But Jhoulys also looks like Julie, which of course brings to mind everybody's favorite cruise director:

Which leads us to:

Which led me to search for the scene in "Airplane!" where Ted Striker, during a jailbreak, passes the guy singing the "Love Boat" theme. Turns out that's actually in "Airplane II," so enjoy this:

And who plays Roger Murdock in "Airplane!"? That's right, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Which leads us to: Lakers @ Jazz, 5p PT on ABC. Go Purple & Gold!

So Manny's back, eh?

I hope Manny brought Kemps bat with him.

Go Lakers!

NicJ said...

Ugh, Crawford and Bavetta are reffing the Lakers game? this could get ugly.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Moronic Utah crowd, not even paying attention to Miles stepping out of bounds.

NicJ said...

zero ball movement so far.

NicJ said...

even pau is taking long jumpers.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They're just acting like the paint is made of molten lava.

Dusty Baker said...

We're jsut letting 'em see a little light before we close the door.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Are they just afraid of close-range shots? What is it about jumpers that they like?

NicJ said...

eh, could be worse.

I felt we were gonna lose this game coming in though.

NicJ said...

utah is clogging the paint, a little ball movement would counter that.

NicJ said...

AK47 already looks gassed.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm getting sick of hearing about Kirilenko.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to kick Kirilenko's mother out of my waterbed if I have to hear about him from the commentators one more time.

NicJ said...

AK47 is so Jeter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The opposing point guard is tearing apart our defense. That's new.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF (re ur Tweet)

Yeah their "white out" is laaa-HAY-ame. These [color] outs are cheap-ass gimmicks to teams who are pretenders.

Or did they just mean it would mostly be white people in the crowd?

This is what I love about this place.
Back from the quick trip to the border.
Gambling: check
Drinking: check
Debauchery: check.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It seems that Tirico and Brown are gushing over each Jazz player who enters the game. Not much love for any Lakers.

NicJ said...

Yeah, well the longer the series goes the more money the network makes.

Plus, liking the lakers was soooooo last season.

Dusty Baker said...

Sounds like you hit the hat trick, RB!

Which order were those in?

Dusty Baker said...

You'd think that Jeter played for the Jazz the way they're being talked about.

NicJ said...

the lakers are horrible from three, but the team is on fire with a foot on the line. thats like four already.

NicJ said...

Remember when Vujacic had the ability to get hot like korver is now? that was a fun two months.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They just can't find the open shooter when they need to.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Selling Clipper season tickets during a Laker playoff game is not Donnie Sterling's greatest decision.

NicJ said...

they gush over the jazz, and call fish a flopper. nice.

NicJ said...

Dwill never gets called for carrying the ball.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fish just needs to hit his freebies.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One guy in the stands was flipping off Fish, I believe, during that "Lakers suck" chant. Those classy Mormons.

NicJ said...

Thats actually an upgrade from two years ago when they would point at him and cover one eye with a hand and boo.

THATS just plain evil.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

For a bunch of people who abstain from caffeine and alcohol, they sure are some energetic pricks.

NicJ said...

they should take away your magic underwear for this bullshit

Josh S. said...

I will be blissfully unaware of tonight's game, since I'll be in a theater watching that documentary on domestic gender equality, "Men Iron Too".

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RT @ArashMarkazi: You know you're not in the best environment when fans finish their taunts with, "boy!"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Josh - Reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode "To Iron Man."

NicJ said...

yikes.

NicJ said...

Artest on fire!! two in a row, that counts.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RT @mcten: A fan just yelled, "Do you want coffee with your donuts, Phil?!" What does that even mean?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Is there some kind of baseball game tonight?

NicJ said...

"Is there some kind of baseball game tonight?"

no the yankees/sox game is already over. that is the only thing that matters.

NicJ said...

im tired of milsap already.

NicJ said...

Damn! i wish that Brown three would have went down.

Lookin better than i thought.

karen said...

Typical Charlie Haeger

NicJ said...

Korver is going Dragic on the lakers.

NicJ said...

Poor charlie.

Mr. Customer said...

I shouldn't switch over to the Dodgers right now, should I?

NicJ said...

well that dodger game ended rather quickly.

NicJ said...

Aww, i feel bad for the guy.

karen said...

Haeger out with no outs in the first

NicJ said...

i think im more mad at the fact that Ortiz is going to come out and pitch moderately well and that will buy him another 6 weeks on the team.

NicJ said...

lamar you dummy

NicJ said...

man when it rains it pours.

NicJ said...

dont worry everyone, all we have to do is beat Ubaldo tomorrow to get the series win.

That should be easy, right?

Dusty Baker said...

Got stuck in line paying for groceries for dinner. Was wondeirng how I could cook steak on the patio and still watch Dodgers (I'm not Jamie Carroll). Now I see that problem has worked itself out.

Frank, you got people out to the Yard on a Saturday night for THIS PRODUCT? Shame.

A Delino said...

TWO IN A ROW!!!!!!!

Rob said...

OHAI. I CAN HAZ BASERUNNERZ?

Mr. Customer said...

Lakers with absolutely no ball movement.

NicJ said...

this place is degenerating into MCC

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK!!!

LOLZ

Mr. Customer said...

At least Dre is unfazed.

NicJ said...

LAMAR!!

NicJ said...

Korver killing the lakers.

NicJ said...

damn, that might be the ballgame.

NicJ said...

defense please.

Dusty Baker said...

D FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISH!!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

I can almost overlook Fish's defense after that 3.

NicJ said...

hit the freebies please.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C re Fish

Everyone has their role to play.

NicJ said...

fisher really does turn it on in the playoffs.

NicJ said...

someone please stay glued to korver.

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

Fish is equal parts dagger and doormat, so I suppose it's a wash.

Dusty Baker said...

Fish is the SOUL of this team. A god damned ROCK.

[Disclosure: I grew up just up the road from him.]

NicJ said...

im calling it, Ethier wins it tonight with back to back grandslams.

Mr. Customer said...

Yuck.

NicJ said...

NOOOOOOOOO

Dusty Baker said...

HOW WAS THAT NOT A FOUL???? Fish was HELD! Jesus fucking christ how blatant could that be? What the fuck was the ref looking at?

NicJ said...

4.4 seconds of D please.

Mr. Customer said...

That was totally a foul, but let's not panic yet.

Mr. Customer said...

escape!

NicJ said...

OOHHHHHHHHHHHH SHIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTT

it rolled off the rim!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Does this make it feel better (re MLB Network radio)?

"#Padres SP Jon Garland is on now talking about his 7 inning, 2 hit performance leading them to victory"

No, I didn't think it would.

Dusty Baker said...

Nic said "4.4 seconds of D please."

Sounds like my junior prom night.

NicJ said...

Hayoooooo!

Mr. Customer said...

Schrödinger's Box Score:

The phenomenon of not wanting to change the channel to find out how poorly your team is doing, hoping that by not observing the events, they have not actually occurred.

NicJ said...

The laker win cancels out the dodger assassination. for today at least.

NicJ said...

maybe the rockies will use up all their runs tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

We have far fewer runs scored than our opponents do. That's not good.

Mr. Customer said...

Aw, shit.

I had to look, and it ain't pretty. I assume responsibility for this debacle.

Mr. Customer said...

This place got real dead real quick.

Dusty Baker said...

#BlameMrCustomer

Dusty Baker said...

Is this what it feels like when doves cry?

NicJ said...

Has anyone else noticed that Dewitt is slowly becoming a decent second basemen? He has made some pretty good plays lately.

Dusty Baker said...

I have maintained staggering levels of sobriety today. That is going to change in short order. Headed to the grill to lay down some steak. Tell me if I miss anything.

@MrC,RB

I bought some royal pints of London Pride for tomorrow. I'll either be celebrating or made the fool, and I'm sure I'll hear it from you guys if the latter occurs.

Go Chelsea!

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

I'll be pulling for your lads by default, for sure.

David said...

Is Ramon Ortiz credited for a start in this situation, since he came into the game with 0 outs recorded?

A Delino said...

At least we've got Betty White tonight

Dusty Baker said...

"...BAH-ba Fett..." -Vinny

Via Mrs Dusty

Dusty Baker said...

I think we broke out the pink bats early.

David said...

Dangit, no easy RBI situation for Ethier.

David said...

Monasterios!

David said...

The way this is going, the Dodgers clubhouse will be eating lentil soup tonight while Ethier gets steak.

David said...

That inning was a fail.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers won and....


Lakers won!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't see the Dodgers sticking with Haeger. They've given him plenty of opportunities and he's taken a shit on each one. This isn't like Ely or Paul, where they fill in admirably and are given the bum's rush. Haeger just has sucked something awful.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This place got empty fast.

NicJ said...

Yeah, that's a shame. I really liked Charlie.

Will the god damn angels just win or lose already! I want to watch the lakers post game
show!!

David said...

I'm still here, but there's not really much to say. Anderson struck out, ho hum.

NicJ said...

I'm thinking torre is pretty glad he put a hold on contract extension talks till after the season right about now.

karina said...

Epale, everyone!

For the sweet love of Jesus, the guy from Maracaibo pitched a shutout against the Dodgers. Shame on you, LA Dodgers.

I'd wish i'd have had more than one margarita.

NicJ said...

Sit your ass down tulo. You're up by 8 runs, stop your bitchin'

karina said...

@David that lentil soup comment is funny, since it's a pretty popular dish in Venezuela. I'm afraid the Dodgers will get nueve arepas (slang for shutout)

NicJ said...

All that's stands between me and a lakers postgame show is a Brian Fuentes save. This could be a long night.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So who do we add with two slots open? Ely probably makes a return appearance. But who else? Do the Dodgers call someone else up, or do they go outside the organization? There's just no way Haeger can stay in the rotation.

NicJ said...

Jansen!!

Steve Sax said...

This doesn't look so good, guys.

Why is Haeger up and Ely down, again?

David said...

Whoa, I didn't realize how low Nick Green's career BA was.

NicJ said...

Looking at who we are going up against tomorrow we may be looking at 18 innings of no runs.

Dusty Baker said...

I...am....still here...Barely alive. On life support. Can't take it.

BUT

Hey, Simers and Plaschke, look! Manny is still there, not showering, rooting on others, not playing hearts on the clubhouse. But oh, wait, that doesn't fit your narrative.

NicJ said...

How long does a freakin early may angels post game show need to be!?! Where the hell is the lakers PG show.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Lakers won. What more do you need, bro? ;-)
