Game 63 Thread: June 13 vs. Angels, 1p

Carlos Monasterios (3-0, 2.27) vs. Jered Weaver (5-3, 3.20).

COMMENTS: Wait a second, there's a Weaver on the mound in Dodger Stadium, but he's not wearing Dodger blue? That must mean:

Two straight losses, both with the Dodgers scoring few runs, and the Angels are poised for a sweep while we get booted out of first place. I'm depressed, disappointed, and deflated. And now I'm stuck in commercial hell, having spent the last hour looking for that frickin Jared Jeweler commercial. So tell you what; I'm sharing the misery. Enjoy this:

Horrifying.

Paul said...

Carlos Santana learned some home plate etiquette from Dunn. He was standing on home plate when Dunn was comming home on a hit. No play at the plate but Dunn knocked him over anyway.

Paul said...

Dibble. "we know we are better than that"

thank god we have Vinny.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why is it only us and the Brewers who have the competent broadcasters in baseball?

Paul said...

I didn't mind Detroit's broadcast this year.

Baby Jesus has an 89mph change up. That Is Ely's fastball. All about location and changing of speeds.

Paul said...

7 Ks after four. That sinker is dirty filthy nasty.

NSBZero said...

Barrys and cream? Sounds like the 2007 Giants all over again.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I really, really, really hate the Angels right now.

karina said...

@Mr LASF give the Monster Cheerios time to adjust

Nostradamus said...

What the hell! I can't look away for half an inning without the plane crashing into the mountain?

Nostradamus said...

Should I just not watch the bottoms of innings? Every time I look away, somebody is crossing the plate.

karina said...

Props to Fuki!

karina said...

Weaver threw 3 straight Ks after the home run

Nostradamus said...

Come on...

Nostradamus said...

DP!

rbnlaw said...

It almost looked like karina cussed.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw lol! it was dissapointment

MR.F said...

It's all Lakers karma, right? Right?

Nostradamus said...

Gah!

karina said...

I confess I like this brand new King James that is mostly successful stealing bases.

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
It reminded me of the kid in Chicago who was suspended for wearing a Fukudome jersey to school.


Meanwhile: Shit.

rbnlaw said...

Looks like a good day to go watch volleyball.

Monasterios is starting to sound like a cereal served to monks.

Nostradamus said...

FMITAP

Paul said...

Monster beat down.

karina said...

Don't leave us, Rbnlaw

Let's just have some patience, it's just the third inning

By the way, I don't curse ever unless I reach "the" boiling point. In the case the Dodgers lose three in a row against the Angels, it's just near that point.I have high levels of tolerance.

Unless they lose this game in an embarrassing fashion but again it's the third inning.

rbnlaw said...

Is the Monster Cheerio hurt?

Nostradamus said...

This does make me nervous going into the series with you-know-who.

@karina:
I may not have a choice. Daughter #2 (rbnlaw, jr.) is in a volleyball tournament, and her team made it to the knock-out round.

rbnlaw said...

Mr. C:
The BoTox? Screw those guys.

Obviously, I've only had 2 beers.

rbnlaw said...

So we face the best in the NL and draw a paltry Sunday crowd. We face a second place AL club and the place is packed?

Who are these guys? Or, as DB would say, "Who the fuck are the Los Angeles Angels?"

Nostradamus said...

@rb

Nah, I forgot the Yanks were after the away Angels series, not this one. The cincy and the sox haven't been exactly tearing up the league, either.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw the one who goes at San Anthony? today it's San Anthony de Padua day, they can't lose!

karina said...

If striking out a pitcher is like kissing a sister, what could we say if the pitcher is also your brother?

Nostradamus said...

Shite.

rbnlaw said...

Well, this game just keeps getting better.

rbnlaw said...

@karina,
She's the one. Explains why they are doing so well.

I should find a way to post the pic of daughter #3 in front of the statue of St. Anthony at the Mission Santa Ines in Solvang, CA.

Unknown said...

so what happened to Carlos that he had to be taken out with a 0-1 count?

Unknown said...

Must be awkward for Jered and Jeff to have to retire each other.

Steve Sax said...

Weaver is in for the fourth, so this isn't good...

4-1 Angels, and the sweep looks close...

Unknown said...

Jeff Weaver gets 4 outs with 5 pitches.

karina said...

I apologize for my Spanglish. It's either San Antonio or Saint Anthony, sorry.

@Rbnlaw no doubt, this is a win for them. Anyway, good luck!

Nostradamus said...

@david

I dunno. I've alway taken a certain amount of glee in a victory over my siblings. Can't say what in would be like if I got paid millions to do it, though.

rbnlaw said...

Off to Artesia and Gahr HS, whose mascot should've been the pirates.

Get it? The Gahr Pirates?

anyone? Bueller?

Steve Sax said...

I hate losing to the Angels.

Steve Sax said...

We are down 5-1

padres tied 2-2, giants up 4-1

Unknown said...

I hate being swept by the Angels.

Josh S. said...

Man, WTF Mike? There's no way in hell Matsui should have been allowed to score on that. Why even argue? It's stuff like that that makes me start to forget his contributions as a Dodger and loathe him as a manager.

Nostradamus said...

What sax said...

Josh S. said...

These losses feel totally flukey to me. We looked way better than this against the Cards.

Nostradamus said...

@josh

Agreed. The offense does seems especially helpless right now.

Josh S. said...

If Thursday's off day made us awful, maybe tomorrow's will flip the switch back to good.

Steve Sax said...

Nice K on Matsui, Hunchy!

Steve Sax said...

Is that man singing GBA, or is it his guitar?

Nostradamus said...

We're alive!

Nostradamus said...

MOAR!

Nostradamus said...

Keep it going.

Josh S. said...

I had the TV muted. What was UnShaggy whining about?

Nostradamus said...

Two in a row? Unpossible.

Josh S. said...

GA's secret: Only hit against the Angels.

Nostradamus said...

@Josh

I think he wanted an extra strike in that AB against Manny.

Nostradamus said...

Crap, I was hoping for two out madness. I'm still holding out hope.

Nostradamus said...

Fuck that.

Unknown said...

well shit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I really hate the Angels right now.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There should be enough Laker karma for a blowout at least.

Paul said...

James makes it a game!!!!

Josh S. said...

RIIIIIIISE!!!!

Paul said...

Come on Belly.

Paul said...

Crap shit fuck.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Time for the other beard.

Nostradamus said...

Base hit, Johnson. That's all I ask.

Paul said...

Come on don't do this again.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit.

Josh S. said...

NARG GAFARGLE PLOTZ!

Nostradamus said...

Shee-it. That 8th inning HR really means something now, doesn't it?

Josh S. said...

When was the last time Belliard did something meaningful?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why must we give up extraneous runs that end up biting us in the ass?

Josh S. said...

Hee hee hee.

Nostradamus said...

It we somehow pull this off, I'll really enjoy that.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

No way Fuentes has another good outing in him.

Nostradamus said...

Make him pay for that.

Josh S. said...

Hungry Hungry Bison.

Nostradamus said...

Krep.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Goddamn, Kemp, get it together.

Nostradamus said...

Don't you dare sacrifice here, Raffy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GOD FUCKING DAMMIT

Josh S. said...

HELL FUCK SHIT ASS BITCH DAMN CONGA LINE!

NicJ said...

Well maybe that means the lakers will win

Josh S. said...

I would have preferred the sacrifice, in retrospect.

Fred's Brim said...

what the fuck?
god i hate this

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hope we go into OC and fucking pants those bastards in front of everyone.

Josh S. said...

Note to self: Don't go anywhere near KLAA tomorrow, or you'll smash your car radio.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh my god, Roger Lodge is going to go apeshit after this.

Fred's Brim said...

What are the standings now? Are we in last place again? It feels like we are in last place

Nostradamus said...

Coincidently, apeshit is the first thing that comes to mind when you mention Roger Lodge.

Nostradamus said...

Amazingly, still only 1 back, but we need to get this thing back in sync.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

So is this the Lakers thread?

NicJ said...

Celtics bricking practice shots, for whatever thats worth.

karen said...

@MLASF I was wondering the same thing about a Laker Thread. I guess this is it until we hear different

NicJ said...

ive seen this before.

NicJ said...

shots not falling but we are getting boards.

Nostradamus said...

Piece had all day on that 3.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We need more points in the paint.

karen said...

Big fat baby in...here comes the drool

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There's a Laker thread up now.

NicJ said...

lakers either forcing passes where they cant go or playing one on one.

Fred's Brim said...

i am glad we get a day off tomorrow. The bad part is that we have to go to Cincinnati where our pitching struggled so mightily back in the first month

the Angels have Milwaukee coming in. Dollars to donuts says the Brewers take 2 of 3

Fred's Brim said...

wow I just had a deja vu, and a deja vu of a deja vu
