Game 60 Thread: June 9 vs. Cards, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (5-3, 3.06) vs. Adam Wainwright (8-3, 2.05).

COMMENTS: Hey look, a split with the Braves! Hey look, a series win against the Cards! Hey look, sole possession of first place! Hey look, best record in the NL! What the heck just happened? One moment the Lakers have lost home court, and the next Derek Fisher is taking down three Celtics at the Garden. One moment Andre Ethier's pinky looks like it's still busted, and the next he's 3-for-4. One moment Manny's struggling, and the next...well, he's struggling slightly less. Tonight Kershaw goes for the sweep. Think he has the guts to pull it off?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm listening to Mason and Ireland talk baseball, and I could swear my ears started bleeding. First, Mason was adamant that the Dodgers did not select Zach Lee just to avoid signing somebody. He completely ignored all reason and remained steadfast that the Dodgers believed they had a legitimate chance to sign him. Second, I just heard Ireland say the Yankees do not have a "top of the rotation starter."

These two need to stop talking about baseball. Immediately.

Hey, hey, hey!
So one game is a laugher; the other is a squeaker; what's in between?
A Leaker?
A Squawker?
Another pitchers' duel?

rbnlaw TIME! said...

@MLASF
Obviously Ireland feels that if you put Sabathia there, the rotation becomes "top-heavy."

Dusty Baker said...

We're "getting past" our opponents - yea!

Mr. Customer said...

I'm home and preping for the game by "getting past" a sixer of Paulaner

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

What is your question about pronouncing "engineer"?

Dusty Baker said...

I just "scraped by" a coupla Pyramid Hefs.

Mr. Customer said...

n + gin + EAR?

Dusty Baker said...

You had me at gin, Mr C.

Dusty Baker said...

Monster Cheerios will start on Sunday.

You know, he IS the FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

I hope you didn't have in in your ear, though.

Mr. Customer said...

Giants lose.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rox are losing 2-1.

Steve Sax said...

Finally, a chance for me to see a game! Yay!

Dusty Baker said...

Nats win!

Mr. Customer said...

Are you at the ravine, Sax?

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw has not yet had a 1-2-3 first inning this year, acc to Vin

Josh S. said...

Aaron Miles=MSB?

Dusty Baker said...

Kid K a tad shaky to begin. Keep it together kiddo.

Steve Sax said...

No, not there. But finally on the same time zone...

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw still doesn't...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No 1-2-3 first today.

Josh S. said...

Clayton Kershaw is no Sean Waltman.

Dusty Baker said...

Kershaw appears to be in another time zone.

Steve Sax said...

Here's Nutshot

Josh S. said...

To be fair, Clay had a 1-2-3 first in his last start, but Martin had that passed ball on strike three.

Dusty Baker said...

Can anyone guess the amount of times I yelled out something derisive to Holliday last night that referenced his misplay in the playoffs last year?

Steve Sax said...

Strike out # 2!

Steve Sax said...

"Another mess up in billing!"

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Thirty-seven?

Mr. Customer said...

That ad makes a lot less sense the more I think about it.

Josh S. said...

HONK HONK

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Very close!

Now guess how many stinkeyes/lectures on class I received from Mrs Dusty and MDIL during the game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I guess 42

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well, it was an ace-y walk.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Combined or individually?

I'm going with 36 (you got a pass on the first one)

Dusty Baker said...

I think Joe Torre should have run out and started arguing re the Kemp CS. Just for giggles.

(Those listening or following on GameDay: Kemp was out by about 20 seconds)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh Kemp. Kemp, Kemp, Kemp.

Mr. Customer said...

I wish we would have had a man on base for that double. OH WAIT, we did.

NicJ said...

Hey look at that we already got a run!

oh wait...

thanks kemp.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And of course Andre doubles. There's no way in hell he's ever going to contend for the triple crown again.

karina said...

Kemp scoring wasn't meant to be.

Epale, everyone!

Mr. Customer said...

Manny delivers!

Dusty Baker said...

ManRAM!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh thank goodness Manny's finally coming back.

Dusty Baker said...

Manny smacked a bish UP on that shot.

Mr. Customer said...

Hi Karina!

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, Karina!

Josh S. said...

Ace, my ass.

Steve Sax said...

Boom goes Manny!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is not a very ace-like game.

Josh S. said...

It's like our performances against Carp and Wain from the playoffs got flipped.

Mr. Customer said...

We love us the two-out madness, Vinny.

karen said...

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen

Just got in, looks like Wainwright is struggling a bit.

Dusty Baker said...

I did get a pass on the first nutshot reference, but after that got the ocular whuppin'.

It was somewhere in the high 30s or early 40s, so Mr Ca and MLASF are both very close in their guesses. I was relentless.

I was certain also to throw in the odd "Wash your hair, Timmeh!"s.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's too bad that Bill Plaschke can't see how well our pitching has done, what with his head three feet up Phil Jackson's ass.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, Karen!

Mr. Customer said...

Epale, Karen!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And now Delino just ripped out a large portion of his chest hair.

Mr. Customer said...

Siddown, Yadier.

NicJ said...

Phuck Philly

karina said...

Josh, since you said I needed to talk to my son, he seems to be improving or am I watching him with a mother's eyes?

NicJ said...

For being the best fans on earth, St. Louis fans sure let the expletives fly when manny comes up.

Some cow behind yesterday was down talking manny all game yesterday. It was sweet justice when he had the only RBI.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'd imagine there are many holes in Delino's walls after that.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I guess one of my English teachers gave me the trauma that I can't pronounce "engineer" correctly.

However, Mr C gave me great advice.

Thanks very much!

karen said...

C'mon Matthew

karina said...

Epale, Karen!

Mr. Customer said...

OT Again?

NicJ said...

Im not liking kemp today.

NicJ said...

Well until he does something good and then i will love him.

karina said...

how about another double, Dre?

NicJ said...

damn, let him off the hook.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Andre still needs to regain his clutchness.

karen said...

Epale, Karina!

Dusty Baker said...

Stop waving, you ugly skanks behind home plate!

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I'm tempted to pull a Mrs Dusty or Mrs Dusty in law if you keep using that word ;)

karen said...

KKKKKKershaw!!

Mr. Customer said...

Nice throwing, kid!

Dusty Baker said...

What word, "engineer"? ;-)

Dusty Baker said...

Actually Mrs Dusty and MDIL were the first ones to pipe up and yell at those women for acting like foolz and waving at the camera.

NicJ said...

what the hell is chicago doing? so careless with the puck.

Mr. Customer said...

FJL en fuego.

Josh S. said...

Their ace is dropping a deuce.

Dusty Baker said...

can someone bring a brother up to speed on the hockey situation? i get that it's the finals and that it's phiwwy v blackhawks. but what is game count?

Dusty Baker said...

DeHitts just keep on coming!

karen said...

Blakey Baby!!!

Josh S. said...

DeHitt!

NicJ said...

Wainwrong!!

Mr. Customer said...

@josh

Let's hang a trey on him this inning, then!

NicJ said...

Was that it? looked like a goal to me.

NicJ said...

SUCK IT PHILLY!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a strange goal. Now back to baseball.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

3-2 hawks, playing in Phiwwy. Knotted at 3 in OT.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now the Hawks win. At least Philly lost. Sorry Delino.

Mr. Customer said...

Ahem. Amend that to "See you next year" in the time it took me to write that comment.

Josh S. said...

Ever notice that Clay us occasionally very good at running up the opposing starter's pitch count?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm sorry I missed the hockey. Couldn't fit it in. Congrats to Chicago.

Dusty Baker said...

Vin's love affair w Ryan L continues. Get a room!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I thought his love affair was with Holliday.

NicJ said...

i seriously hate ludwick.

Mr. Customer said...

Shee-it.

karen said...

oh-oh

NicJ said...

he has been the only guy doing anything in this series for the cards.

now wainwright will retire the next 12 batter in order.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fucking Ludwick.

I'm not sure how many times I've said that.

Mr. Customer said...

Let's see if we can get some of that comfortable margin back.

NicJ said...

seriously, can ludwick pull a hammy or something?

Dusty Baker said...

Sometimes it's Holliday, sometimes it's Ludwick. The way he was talking about him before the HR I thought he was going to start talking about showering with him. *shivers*

NicJ said...

well, we should get at least three innings of cards pen. im not sure if thats good or bad yet.

karen said...

@Dusty
That's a visual I could have gone all night without

Paul said...

Crazy Eight for Kershaw!!!

Rufus Wainwright up.

Paul said...

Did Vinny just say the Count of Monte Cristo was a closer?

Seems appropriate.

Mr. Customer said...

Vin always lurved him some Randy Winn, too. Back when he was good, that is.

Paul said...

Don't fuck with the James.

karina said...

King James double!

Dusty Baker said...

Sure to quash the strange McCourt hiring voodoo priest news coming out tonight is this:

"USC has been hit with a two-year post-season ban in addition to the loss of scholarships, among other penalties from the NCAA."

Dusty Baker said...

^Per ESPN

MR. F said...

FJL!

Paul said...

Blake knows that was a BS call.

NicJ said...

Kerwin Danley is one of the WORST umpires. so damn inconsistent.

NicJ said...

Im pretty sure everyone saw this coming after Carroll fled to Seattle.

Bad day for the Delino.

NicJ said...

^ USC suspension.

NicJ said...

manny giveth, manny taketh away.

Josh S. said...

Yep, he's definitely a MSB.

Paul said...

Pujols just a big bully per Vinny.

NicJ said...

nice attempt at the DP, stupid pujols didnt hit the ball hard enough.

karina said...

I'm freaking out in this Pujols at bat.

NicJ said...

totally blew holliday away.

stupid ludwick up now though.

Dusty Baker said...

What a K, Kid K.

Mr. Customer said...

Jaysus!

NicJ said...

oh shit, i just died.

Paul said...

"Stupid Sexy Ludwick" --Vinny.

Dusty Baker said...

I just peed in my pants a little.

karina said...

I thought Pujols could hit something, he's due.

NicJ said...

thank you heavy night time air.

Josh S. said...

I nearly crapped myself.

karen said...

The Kid got out of that by the skin of his teeth

Paul said...

That might be the best ball ever hit that didn't leave the yard.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a bit close.

NicJ said...

@Karina, Vin says that Pujols is only hitting like .150 against power pitcher, and we have plenty of power arms.

NicJ said...

maybe try swinging at least once next time, Raffy.

Paul said...

@Nic.
So you are saying Albert is reeeeeally due?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This must be the worst day of Delino's life.

NicJ said...

is it just me or do the dodgers rarely ever chase a starting pitcher. It seems like they get them in a lot of trouble with high pitch counts in the 3 or 4 inning and they still always go at least 6.

Paul said...

We are getting Ludwicked.

NicJ said...

im saying he is very due, and will cash in during the next series, against the Dbacks.

Dusty Baker said...

We def need to get better at putting the sword to pitchers when we have them down.

karina said...

@Nic J thanks for the stat. It's a relief.

Dusty Baker said...

KKKKKKKKKK

MR. F said...

7 IP, 113 pitches.

Dusty Baker said...

GBA singer isn't half bad.

At singing, I mean.

Josh S. said...

One more PA and Dre is back in the running.

NicJ said...

Very good outing by Kid K

Stupid Ludwick.

Paul said...

White People in the house holla!!!!

NicJ said...

@Dusty, at the game yesterday everyone in red was obese, white, and pushing 60.

The angry lady behind me who was riding manny all game made a comment after he was pulled for Reed as a pinch runner that manny should "run his fat ass around the bases himself"

This lady was easily two bills.

Dusty Baker said...

We're all up in they pen now.

NicJ said...

Motte the Hoople in for relief.

All the young dudes rejoice.

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, Nic. Them is some cornfed fans. That's why I got the hell out of Cardinal country when I did.

Dusty Baker said...

Will Brox be available tonight?

Mr. Customer said...

You can only hope to contain him.

NicJ said...

Albert hasnt had a very good defensive series either.

Dusty Baker said...

Long single by Loney off Pulgas' glove.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They're turning Motte into applesauce.


Thank you, I'll be here till Sunday. Try the veal.

NicJ said...

Panama!!

NicJ said...

way to run it out manny.

Dusty Baker said...

DeHitt sure has been fidgety these last two ABs. Hang in there, Joycie!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm throwing fruit at you now, Mr C.

Paul said...

Go the other way with it Russ.

Josh S. said...

Where's Eric Smith tonight? That's clearly not him on the PA.

Josh S. said...

Dammit.

Dusty Baker said...

1st and 3rd and no one out....for naught.

Come on, guys, great teams know how to do this.

Paul said...

Damn it!!! Russ you had it hit harder than that. I have to so specific with that guy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One more inning for insurance.

NicJ said...

@Josh, i was thinking the same thing but i didnt want to seem obsessive because i could tell the difference between PA announcers.

karina said...

@Nic J what do you mean with "was easily with two bills?"

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

It's not Smith. It's the house man for Kings per J Bramlett's tweet earlier tonight.

karina said...

Perfect night for King James, it's a pity he just has one run and no RBIs.

Paul said...

Back to Dumas. If the count is the closer I am guess the Musketeers were the starting pitchers. Back then I am sure they only had a four man rotation.

NicJ said...

@karina, slang for 200 pounds. Bills like 100 dollar bills.

Dusty Baker said...

That was strong, Paul. Way to come correct.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Understandable, but I'm afraid I've lost the thread of the conversation.

Unless that was for MLASF's comedy stylings.

NicJ said...

Only the Loney!!

Paul said...

Don't. Fuck. With. The. James.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nicely snagged.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

So then LaRussa=Cardinal Richelieu?

NicJ said...

broxton gets the meat of the order again, that worries me a little bit. They all saw him pitch yesterday.

Paul said...

Biiig AB here

Nice belly!!!

Let's get some runs!!

Josh S. said...

Brox-Holes 2. Coming soon.

Paul said...

Lol. Mr. C it has to be.

NicJ said...

damn ludwick was playing shallow.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

Just saw your "probably a union thing" comment on twitter. Heh.

NicJ said...

nice of the Angels to stop sucking right before we play them.

karina said...

@Nic J thanks :)

Paul said...

Come on Bison!!! Wake up and get mad.

karina said...

Whoa, Belisario!

Paul said...

Oh boy.

Josh S. said...

Dammit. Now I hope dte doesn't getthat 5th PA.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

I wish they'd show Broxton's entry.
Loved it in person.

Dusty Baker said...

I sure wish we played in the Great American Ballpark.

Dusty Baker said...

Brox's entry really is getting to be a spectacle at the Yard. It ain't Gagne, but it's pretty cool.
