Game 51 Thread: May 31 vs. D'backs, 6p

Chad Billingsley (6-2, 3.63) vs. Rodrigo Lopez (2-3, 4.57).

COMMENTS: Does anyone actually read these things? Let's find out. The Dodgers return from their six-parsec intergalactic Kessel Run, having dropped two of three to the Jupiter Cubs but taking two of three from the Venusian Rockies. Although pitcher Vicente Padilla was alleged to have had a run-in with Eccentrica Gallumbits, the Triple-Breasted Whore of Eroticon Six, no files were charged. Meanwhile, Chad Billingsley prepared for today's start by pitching a simulated game of Blernsball, striking out Turanga Leela a record 16 times. And Manny Ramirez fulfilled a lifelong dream by auditioning for and getting a role in the next Predator movie. Multipass!

UPDATE: Today's hats, via @DodgertownUSA:

Fred's Brim said...

shite

rbnlaw TIME! said...

fuck.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

karina snaked us for 200.

Mr. Customer said...

Dammit Manny!

We're letting Lopez get to far into this game.

Fred's Brim said...

@Josh - just tell yourself you thought it was David Eckstein's face

NicJ said...

doesnt look like we are going to get to see very much of the AZ bullpen tonight.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Oh, and Manny couldn't get it done.

It's up to Jamey Carroll to save us.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Let's just pretend the first two innings didn't happen.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Maybe Torre really wants Chad to get win #7.

Mr. Customer said...

Mutts rolling over for SD

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Memorial Day, July 4th, 9/11. All good days for GBA.

Every day? No.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw I didn't mean it!, i'm late because my brother and his friends are rehearsing and they brought a couple of friends of mine so i was socializing.

Orel said...

@rbn "Orel, tell him what he's won."

The frustration of watching Chad settle down after giving up three HRs in the first two innings!

Fred's Brim said...

crap

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We'll never see the bullpen.

Fred's Brim said...

i meant "crap" for Loney's lineout, but it applies to my prize as well

karina said...

It'd be appropriate if the Dodgers have a walkoff win on the night Dre returns.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck you ump! pick a strike zone and stick with it!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Someone needs to tell Martin just what we're trying to do here.

Fred's Brim said...

this is when we usually give them some stupid runs. lets not do that tonight

karen said...

@Karina--Especially if Dre hits it!

karina said...

@Mr LASF like not swinging to the very first pitch when he's struggled with the pitcher the whole game.

Tough love with him tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

CHAD'S PASSED 110 PITCHES. WHAT THE HELL?!?!

karina said...

and Tron is warming in the bullpen...

NicJ said...

I hope the az bullpen is really bad. We might only get one inning of it.

NicJ said...

A nice six innings by Chad. I'm ignoring the first two.

karina said...

@Nic J quality start, then?

NicJ said...

WORK THE FUCKING COUNT!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

How much longer until DeWitt loses his starting job?

rbnlaw TIME! said...

The line on Bills: two shitty innings followed by six innings of shutdown pitching. 4 earned runs, millions of frustrated fans.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Justin Upton can kiss my ass.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No chance of an Andre walk-off.

Mr. Customer said...

Pitiful.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Holly freaking hell, we actually have something.

Paul said...

Lopez? Really?

Fookie on. I sense a Bison bomb.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Why does every middling pitcher pick the game vs. the Dodgers to make their Cy Young bid?
Lopez is horrible at best.

Mr. Customer said...

Be the man here, Matt.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Furcal is not 100% with the wheels.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'll take a go-ahead homer. I'm not picky.

Paul said...

Double!!!

Dre Dre Dre.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

A 2 out double should score a run from first, yes?

Well, the table is set for some guy named Andy.

Paul said...

Fuck this umps zone.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Damn right it was no swing.

NicJ said...



Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'LL FUCKING TAKE IT

Mr. Customer said...

DRE!!!

rbnlaw TIME! said...

I knew this was the D-bags we were playing!!
2 run error.

Paul said...

He can't be beat!!!

NicJ said...

Posted my comment a little early.

Yay!!

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Good teams get the breaks.

Sometimes the Dodgers do too.

karen said...

I love Kelly Johnson!!

NicJ said...

finish him off, manny!!

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Qualls in the pen ready to come in and blow this fucker open.

karina said...

New game...'till Manny convinces us of any other way

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hinch will ride Lopez to Canada before he lets the 'pen in.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

The Mets really suck.

Paul said...

Let's. get Bills the win!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least we absolve Chad of a lost.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

0-0.

Paul said...

What Bullet by Andre way for Kelly to put his body on the line to get in front of it.

NicJ said...

Broxton in? Torre knows AZ's bullpen is terrible too.

Dusty Baker said...

Suuuuuure....talking to yourself again, FB.

Paul said...

What is up with Broxton and low average power guys.

Dusty Baker said...

Zach Greinke has a fucking tiny-ass little head.

Paul said...

Is Gibby freezing?

David said...

aaaargh.

Dusty Baker said...

That was NASTY by Broxton. I'm calling him Ms Jackson.

David said...

As much as Broxton seems to never have 1-2-3 innings, he still hardly ever gives up runs.

NicJ said...

@David, he has a flair for the dramatic.

Mr. Customer said...

Ok, let's do this without giving them another shot.

Josh S. said...

That was fucking beastly.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker +1 for the Janet Jackson reference

NicJ said...

hey, Bills didnt walk anyone. i just noticed. thats what happens when you pound the strikezone.

karina said...

You are due, King James

David said...

It's walk-off time.

Paul said...

Oh the lead off walk.

NicJ said...

Loney walks.

Beard time.

Dusty Baker said...

Real conversation in Baker household:

Mrs Dusty in Law: I like when they're smiling in their [TV broadcast stats/ID] picture.

DB: I don't.

MDIL: Why?

DB: Because Bills [we had just seen him on the screen] is a pitcher, and he needs to look mean.

MDIL: How?

DB: He needs to be missing an ear and have a hare-lip.

David said...

King James walks courtesy of the crappiest pen in the majors.

NicJ said...

Ive always thought bills needs a beard or something.

Dusty Baker said...

Thx, Karina.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We still have 15 minutes before we draw the ire of Joe West. Hurry it up and win, boys.

Paul said...

Man that was outside Casey but the ump might have rang you up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

In Beard We Trust!

NicJ said...

no DP's please.

David said...

It's pathetic that Vasquez is actually one of their better relievers.

Paul said...

Two on!

One more hit and we might make party!!! (depending on where and how hard it is hit)

NicJ said...

damn you loney!!

pay attention next time!!

David said...

btw, Dusty, that conversation was hilarious.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Something tells me Blogger is broken.

Loney, you suck.

Paul said...

What the fuck?!?

NicJ said...

James is no king

Dusty Baker said...

WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING LONEY?

WS winning teams don't do this shit.

#AAA

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

To the emergency thread!

Duhduhdaduhduhhhhhhh

Mr. Customer said...

WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT!

NicJ said...

there goes the possibility of a sacrifice, thanks loney.

Dusty Baker said...

Loney kept us out of a DP, I suppose.

Paul said...

James if you have a bad idea at least commit to it.

NicJ said...

wild pitch please.

Dusty Baker said...

It's been awhile since I've whined about how many times our batters take first pitch strikes. Blake just looked at a meatball down the middle to start the AB 0-1. We start in a hole every fucking at bat.

MR. F said...

Yay!

NicJ said...

OH SHIT A WALK OFF BALK!!!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Walkoff balk!

David said...

Gameday's confusing the crud out of me. How did Blake go from 1st to 3rd on a groundout?

Dusty Baker said...

"Look out boys for broken legs!" -Vinny

NicJ said...

quick break GAARP's leg!!

Paul said...

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

De Blah is clutch after all.

karina said...

Do you remember last season when DeWitt was DeClutch?

David said...

LMAO, what a way to end the game

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like another imperfect day! I love LA!

Mr. Customer said...

Uh, that I have never seen before...

NicJ said...

The sheer force of the beard caused a balk.

Dusty Baker said...

Can someone please say "I'll take it!" ?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Dusty - I did.

Mr. Customer said...

What, was he drawn off the mound by it's lushness.

David said...

What was the last time in MLB history that a game ended on a balk!? Wow.

Steve Sax said...

Ugly, but we'll take it

karina said...

I should remember this when someone comes up and tells me it's not necessary to watch every game. Of course not, all games are different.

NicJ said...

Oh shut up lyons.

Paul said...

I don't remeber De Clutch last year. Unless you mean in AAA. I do remeber that Clutch hitting in 08. Hopefully just a phase for the young Jedi.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

My thread didn't show your I'll take it, but I think Blogger is fugged up. so thx.

NicJ said...

a gift victory lyons? like we werent going to win in extras anyways.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DeWitt has 4 runs-batted-in last season.

karina said...

Sorry, Paul, I was mistaken.

Dusty Baker said...

Lyons is saying no balk. STFU, you lame ass. I'd rather have silence than your call of the game, you Larry Bird lite looking turd breath. I've got something for your armpit.

Orel said...

WTFjusthappenedGTUP!

Paul said...

No worries Karina.

We all want to call him De Clutch. :)

NicJ said...

AZsnakepit is hilarious right now.

Its even funnier because they dont allow them to use the word "fuck"

Dusty Baker said...

@ Nic

How the fuck can you comment in a fucking comment thread during a game without using the word "fuck"?

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Well, that was fun.
