Game 62 Thread: June 12 vs. Angels, 7p

John Ely (3-2, 3.00) vs. Scott Kazmir (5-5, 5.40).

COMMENTS:

Now the Torre told his Dodgers

You've gotta let those big bats swing

The Angels' pitching's suspect,

And their bullpen woes do sting

With Kemp, Andre, and Manny

We've got plenty of big guns

And with James Loney's steady hits

We'll score John Ely some runs

The Scioscia won't like it

Rockin' the Kazmir

Rock the Kazmir

The Scioscia won't like it

Rockin' the Kazmir

Rock the Kazmir

Shariff don't like it.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Drop some bombs on his minarets, dammit.

Beer being had. Just need some food.

Josh S. said...

Your pops is on the telethon.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

"Bid now for a date with Steve Garvey." Sure to raise a few dollars, if only from his current wife.

MR. F said...

Maybe we can bid on him as part of Sons and Dads (S.A.D.) Reunion Project.

Paul said...

I hope the Dodgers have been workin on their game cause life is taxin. Let's get it together and see what's happenin.

NicJ said...

Very nice GT theme.

NicJ said...

its funny how most starting pitchers stone face the rest of the team before a start and Ely is out in the dugout giving out high fives and fist pounds right now.

Fred's Brim said...

I am staying away tonight. I hope that helps us

karen said...

Hi Everyone!

Good start to the game

NicJ said...

please no more two out madness.

Nvm, thx Hunter.

Paul said...

FB

I am pouring some of my Sapporo out in honor of your memory but not my Suntory that I will drink in your honor.

NicJ said...

well that was a waste of an at bat raffy.

karen said...

I just wanted to toss in my support for the S.A.D Reunion Project. Wouldn't it be like a fairy tale to reunite the Sons with Papa Steve for Father's Day?!

NicJ said...

Jmart is like a facial hair chameleon.

karina said...

I love you Sax, that's one of my all time favorite songs.

Epale, everyone!

MR. F said...

Yay. No no-hitter.

NicJ said...

They changed MLB gameday, i fear change.

karina said...

Go Bison clutch!

NicJ said...

Kazmir had to throw a lot of pitches, its a start.

MR. F said...

Back-to-back K's. Sigh.

NicJ said...

kazmir struck out the side in the first, lets see how the second goes.

NicJ said...

NicJ said...

why are we swinging at the first pitch? Kazmir's always had a problem throwing strikes.

Paul said...

Ely double right here.

Paul said...

Ewwww maybe not with that swing. 2-2. Making him pitch.

NicJ said...

haha, i love watching Ely bat.

NicJ said...

Every time Ely strikes out he walks away from the plate pissed at himself.

haha.

Paul said...

That is okay kid. It was a better AB than some of the other starters

David said...

at least Ely's pitch count is much lower than Kazmir's.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, kids. Long time no see.

Paul said...

Nice play Jaimie. He is our lucky gnome.

Hola Mr. Seee.

NicJ said...

nice play by Ely, get back in your fucking dugout, Mike.

Even if he probably is right.

NicJ said...

seriously, stop swinging at the first pitch.

NicJ said...

Kemp being a batter that chases balls out of the zone doesnt fair very well against a pitcher who doesnt throw many strikes.

NicJ said...

there are too many angel fans tonight.

Paul said...

Crap. I hate hearing Angel fans cheer.

NicJ said...

damn

NicJ said...

im surprised the angel fans are cheering without the cue of fireworks.

Mr. Customer said...

Not so happy about that, but keep it at one.

Steve Sax said...

NicJ, what did they change on Gameday?

Steve Sax said...

Padres already won with their cushy schedule helping

giants are up 5-2

NicJ said...

god dammit!

Steve Sax said...

We need to win to stay infirst

Josh S. said...

God daaaaaaaamit.

Mr. Customer said...

Aw hell.

karina said...

My deepest apologies for Rivera's, Isturiz and Abreu performances.

NicJ said...

second place is nice too.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This wouldn't be too bad if we could STOP MAKING MEDIOCRE PITCHERS LOOK LIKE CY FUCKING YOUNG.

Steve Sax said...

Goddammit, are we gonna score any against the Angels?

3-0 angels off the Rivera HR

NicJ said...

a walk and a visit from honeycutt, here comes another bomb.

Josh S. said...

It's like clockwork. Every season, the Dodgers can be rolling along and then the Angels show up and have their number.

David said...

well CRAP!!!

karen said...

Vin has mentioned twice now that the angels have won 20 of the last 27 at DS. I love you Vinny but enough is enough

NicJ said...

Kazmir is a pretty good pitcher when his control is on. Which our batters are helping out with that.

just gotta keep it reasonable and get to the pen.

Paul said...

We need to score some freakin runs!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

In other news, I really dislike the Angels broadcasters. First, Rojas shouted "OH NOOOO" after that blown call on the Aybar bunt. Then they started talking about the homer hankies, and attributed the Dodgers' use of them to Matt Holliday's nut shot.

NicJ said...

maybe we will lose the home series and win the away series in anaheim like last year.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

I may have said this before, but it bears repeating:

The Angels can kiss my azz!

Paul said...

God we can't find the grass.

Josh S. said...

Why the hell isn't Manny playing again?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, why isn't Manny playing? I missed that part.

NicJ said...

nice long at bat by casey.

Paul said...

I think Casey may need to shave and start a new beard. This one has gone stale.

NicJ said...

he doesnt hit kazmir at all.

but then again neither does the rest of the team apparently.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

One hit in four innings. At least we had something against Pineiro yesterday, even if we squandered it.

NicJ said...

This inter league month is going to make or break our season.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's games like these that make me pissed we're playing AL teams who played more than 162 games last year.

NicJ said...

fuck, well maybe we can salvage a win tomorrow.

Mr. Customer said...

Le sigh

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Clearly our ability to kick Western division ass ends in the NL.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

What
the
fuck?

David said...

Eh, I guess we couldn't rely on Ely to pitch like an All-Star all year.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Anyone else need another beer? I'm buying while I'm up.

NicJ said...

im still waiting on the padres to hit a 2-8 skid.

NicJ said...

so either we leave Ely in and let him give up a HR or we can bring tron in to do it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Manny better play tomorrow, and he better hit well, 'cause if he doesn't, we'll be taking a trip to the glue factory. And he won't get to come.

karen said...

With the exception of the gnats and the mutts this is the team that I hate to lose to the most. On second thought lets not forget the phils

This is a pissy way to spend a Saturday night

NicJ said...

maybe this is just filling up the Karma tank for a nice lakers win tomorrow.

NicJ said...

thank you, umpire.

Mr. Customer said...

@rbn

Put it on my tab.

karen said...

Our sweet little MSB!!!

Mr. Customer said...

@karen

I'd say I hate losing to the Angels more than any but the Giants, and we play lots of games against them to vindicate ourselves.

In other news, the roamin' gnome delivers!

Paul said...

Hey a double!!

Hey Ronnie! I forgot you were on the team.

Paul said...

Is it just me or is Vinny using more crazy stats lately?

Dusty Baker said...

I'll take one of those beers.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

DB,
I anticipated your request in honour of England's tie that ended in a tie.

Paul said...

Come on guys.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Really starting to dislike the Angels right about now.

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff double for Carroll in the fifth, and we aren't going to score him.... Even down 4-0

NicJ said...

at least we are having long at bats.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Angels suck, Angels suck!

Paul said...

Okay two on.

Russ is due for a big hit and he has had a good swing tonight.

Mr. Customer said...

Vast improvement, boys!

Paul said...

Yes yes yes. I lika da swing.

karen said...

Karina--You must be so proud!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FINALLY!

David said...

YEAH MARTIN!!!

More runs, please.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey Dusty,

Welcome back from the trenches.

karina said...

My son's the best!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, Andre, you need to regain your clutchness.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

'Bout fucking time.

karina said...

@karen that's for sure!

NicJ said...

andre just has luck.

Mr. Customer said...

Lets have a little two-out madness off out own, Matty.

karina said...

Pretty please, Bison. Just for the kick?

Paul said...

Kemp needs to get the eye the bison back.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Up to the Bison.

Db, Your beer is getting warm.

NicJ said...

kemp, you suck.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn, Kemp.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

The struggle continues.

Mr. Customer said...

I'll take the runs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least we have forced the Angels' hand. They will have to use the bullpen soon. Then we strike.

Paul said...

Matt needs to go back to the 8th spot.

David said...

Our offense usually sucks when Ethier, Kemp and Manny are slumping all at the same effing time.

Paul said...

Troncoso works more than a kid in a Chinese sweat shop.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Really, why is Tron pitching? Let Weaver get some innings, seriously.

karina said...

@Paul that was funny, but cruel

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Let's pick on the bully.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There are two Francisco Rodriguezes?

Paul said...

Line drives aren't ffindinf spots.

Rodriguez whas up primo?

karina said...

That Francisco Rodriguez was called from Triple A on May 26th, according to the guys on tv who don't let me to listen to Vinny.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Abreu is a middling OF. They should be hitting it all over right field.

BTW, the Angels can kiss my ass.

DB, I drank your milkshake.

NicJ said...

we are just getting schooled tonight.

Paul said...

What the hell did I type now?

Line drives are not finding spots.

Karina

it was kind of cruel but you can either laugh or cry about those things. I choose to laugh at least until the bottom of the ninth then I might be crying.

Paul said...

Oh sure keep Tron out there.

karina said...

@Paul there's no crying in baseball!

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Did someone say get pissed on a Saturday night?

I am.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Who's this guy pitching for the Dodgers right now?
He ain't half bad.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Scott Procter called. He wants his shtick back.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, on the positive side, I was able to properly finish the crossword while mildly buzzed. At least we have that.

Mr. Customer said...

Lead off walk, now make him pay.

Paul said...

Nice Gnomey.

GA up.

Mr. Customer said...

Oh, it's GA.

Stay out of the DP then.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Make your old team pay, GA.

No, seriously, have them foot the bill for your incompetence.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Mr. C:
I have many cross words when I'm buzzed. Like, "Farking GAARP?"

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Well, I'll be dipped.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

waaaAAAAAAAAHHHHH????

Mr. Customer said...

RISP.
None out.
Don't F up.

Paul said...

Two on and no outs!!

GA gets a hit. Let's not waste it.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Good job, Raffy.

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck, Raffy.

karina said...

That bunt belong to the Hall of Fame of embarrasing bunts

Paul said...

Fuckin shit you are the fuckin leadoff hitter. Oh but you have that long ass homerun swing down.

Where is my drink.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Seriously, asking For Call to bunt? Fuck me.

karina said...

On top of things, the announcer (whom I dislike a lot) said bottom of the 7th, Los Angeles vs Los Angeles.

It's Anaheim and you get paid for saying those things?

Mr. Customer said...

Hows about we have some patience with the wild as hell pitcher.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now's a perfect time for Andre's clutchness to return.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Rancho Ethierdondo.

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo! Dre up!

Paul said...

Rancho Andritito.

karen said...

Hit it where they ain't Andre

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Those guys are company men. I long for Steiner, even.

Paul said...

Jeff Kent jr on first.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Or is it Rancho Andredando?

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Get the fuck out.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

God fucking dammit.

Mr. Customer said...

Shit. All you Kemp...

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Thank you, Dre.

NicJ said...

well, kemps up now.

Gee, i wonder whats gonna happen.

NicJ said...

FUCK KEMP WHAT THE HELL!

Paul said...

Fuck you Kemp.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Fuck me in the armpit.

Josh S. said...

VETO CLUTCH.

Mr. Customer said...

*punches hole in MLASF's wall*

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Wonder if the AZsnakepit reads our comments and envies our "fucks?"

NicJ said...

i remember when i used to look forward to kemps At bats.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What the hell happened to Andre's clutchness? Is it like some kind of Achille's pinky or something? Seriously, that's fucking bush league.

Paul said...

I am way too frusterated for a Saturday night in June. I need to calm down and pace myself.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I bet Andre is going postal in the dugout right now.

Mr. Customer said...

@rbn

Fuck is a Dutch immigrant. They don't even let them in to Arizona without proper ID.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

This could be the June of our discontent.

NicJ said...

I cant really blame andre at the moment, he has had some terrible luck lately. Im sure his hand is still affecting him though. Kemps another story, he is sub mendoza in june.

Paul said...

I wish we had Mendoza to pinch hit.

Mr. Customer said...

If it were only one if the three outfielders slumping, I'd be a little less concerned.

Belly1 bringing it, though.

NicJ said...

we should change it to sub-anderson.

karina said...

If I wasn't doing this important thing I'm doing, I'd wash my face and teeth and try to get some decent sleep.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So we have James, Casey, and Reed batting in the eighth. Fun.

Paul said...

Dodgers 1 for 13 with RISP. Sad. But I won't stop believin.

karina said...

King James is not slumping.

Btw, annoying guy on tv, it's LOU-NI not "Loony"

karina said...

@Paul way to talk!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Karina - Maybe he's just loony for Loney!


Oh wait, he's an Angels broadcaster. No, he's just a moron.

Paul said...

This middle lineup is ofuuuur.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Everyone but Carroll and Martin are 0fer.

Mr. Customer said...

Ugh

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Knowing Fuentes, he'll strike out the side.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Why are we showing Rodney so much respect?

Paul said...

Vinny having fun with the relief pitcher's craziness

rbnlaw TIME! said...

And we go down like the Euro.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Only 6.5 hrs to the next WC match.

Mr. Customer said...

And interleague play started out so well...

karina said...

@Mr LASF I'm not getting the Angels broadcast, I'm watching the game over the venezuelan sports channel.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Something tells me Boston would take Manny back right about now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

My bad.

rbnlaw TIME! said...

200

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

200

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAMMIT

rbnlaw TIME! said...

Got it
