Game 70 Thread: June 22 @ Angels, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (7-3, 2.96) vs. Ervin Santana (6-5, 3.91).

COMMENTS: Quick, somebody activate the Shpuntsignal! The Dodgers are critically low on V ENERGY, as evidenced by their four consecutive losses. Since the organization can no longer afford Vladimir Shpunt's services, it's up to us fans to channel all our positive energy for that fabled 10 to 15 percent increase in performance. Everybody concentrate now!

Josh S. said...

Here's hoping GAARP looks at his surroundings, gets confused, and thinks it's 2002.

(Though, I would settle for Kemp and Ethier thinking it's April and May of this year.)

Josh S. said...

So, I just noticed that, in a slightly shitty move, the Dodgers charged the day-of-game price for tickets in today's Twitter sale for the Yankees series, even though it's technically an advance sale.

Frandsen 3B

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 4:55p: Actually, that's totally shitty, not just slightly shitty.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Can we conquer Anaheim??????

MR.F said...

I'm incredibly tired. I've been so incredibly tired lately.

Paul said...

I always buy tickets in advance...what are gameday prices?

Hey Kemp is hitting 7th!

Fred's Brim said...

That's Neeebs saying "pure energy" in the video

Paul said...

Mr. F

The June blues? Maybe a sweep of the Anaheim Anglos will cheer you up!

Josh S. said...

Ah yes, that's what I meant: totally shitty.

Josh S. said...

@Paul: Tickets purchased on game day are generally 5-10 bucks more than the advance price.

Kyle Baker said...

Dodger offense: I want to know what you're thinking. Tell me what's on your mind!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Well, I found out today that I'll probably be busy this entire weekend, so I guess it's a good thing that I didn't shell out for one of those mini-plans.

MR.F said...

I dunno Paul. I've had a lot of trouble sleeping lately. Maybe it's catching up with me.

Paul said...

Well that is shitty. Bad Karma man.

I will be glad when this series is over. I am going and it is cool but man it came with much more stress and angst than any event should.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

THE HAEBINGER OF DOOM LIVES RT @DodgertownUSA: Charlie Haeger will start for the #Dodgers against the Angels on Thursday

Kyle Baker said...

Hang in there, Mr. F! We need ya as we come into this Lost Angels series and into the weekend.

Fred's Brim said...

Monster Import is what I will be using to get back that much-needed energy

Fred's Brim said...

of course the Rockies will sweep Boston this week

MR.F said...

Thanks for the support guys. Trying to gut through this.

Fred's Brim said...

*passes Mr F the can of Monster*

...to get you through tonight...

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASF re Chuck Haeger: any idea what the corresponding roster move will be?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@FB - Probably demoting T-Slick to Albuquerque.

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASF that'll work

Fred's Brim said...

ok it's time for a gamechanger, something that will hopefully turn the tide: a buzzcut

Paul said...

40oz to freedom so I take that walk!

karina said...

Epale, everyone!

just checking out to send good energy to the Dodgers.

I won't be around much because I'm very sick again so I really want the Dodgers to win in this sad sick day.

I think the game will be on TV (crossing fingers I get Vinny).

In the other hand, if they don't win I might fall asleep early because I'm taking 6 different medications.

karina said...

@Mr F you're gonna be allright

@Neeebs of course they'll conquer Anaheim

Fred's Brim said...

Hi karina! feel better soon! I blame the Dodgers crappy play for your health. They need to win tonight, for you

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul I hope we take a lot of walks tonight

Paul said...

Win one for Karina damn it!!

Fred's Brim said...

watching the Sox and Rockies on MLB network. the "Boston" on the Red Sox road unis aren't symmetric. The "T" is in line with the buttons leaving a "BOS" on the right side and the "ON" on the left. The B is almost to the armpit while the N is just over the left nipple

nipple

Kyle Baker said...

I hope I drink a 40oz tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

Twilight question: first they had vampires, then they added werewolves for the second movie. What's in the third movie? What's next in the progression of movie monsters? A mummy?

Fred's Brim said...

incredible, Jamie Moyer won his 8th game tonight

Nostradamus said...

Hey everybody!

Feel better, Karina.

Nostradamus said...

...and Mr. F.

Fred's Brim said...

what about me? I like feeling better too...

Paul said...

FB

I think SNL did a skit on a Frankenstien twilight movie. I say next should be mutant hipster dufuses with Angel Fedoras.

Fred's Brim said...

the Orioles DFAed Cla Meredith. How bad do you have to be for the Orioles to have no need for you? He was good once, wasnt he? I bet somebody picks him up

Taco Bell finishes the job vs Tampa

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul - so my level of humor is on par with SNL? I guess it's time to stop telling jokes

Rockies break through vs Sawx, 1-0 in the 5th

Steve Sax said...

karina, get well soon!

Steve Sax said...

@Fred's Brim 6:59: I love how Kevin and Bean call Twilight 2 "the talking dog movie".

Beethoven, Air Bud, Twilight 2

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I went to Burger King for lunch. I won free chicken fries by picking Team Jacob. Though I only did so due to his striking resemblance to Spero Dedes.

Fred's Brim said...

the sunshine makes the field look like an old movie, like Butch Cassidy or something

Manny loses his bat into the stands

Fred's Brim said...

Manny hit that well, just not well enough

Fred's Brim said...

anybody from here make it over to LA Rams Stadium tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

keep taking guys, I like it

Fred's Brim said...

no moving the Russ after the leadoff single. Three big flies, but they didnt carry enough

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I feel that inning could have been more, what with the two full counts.

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax - I am still waiting for the Air Bud/MVP (Most Valuable Primate) buddy cop film

Fred's Brim said...

I don't like that A on the back of the mound. Clayton should scuff an L to go with the A

Fred's Brim said...

nice play by Joyce

karen said...

Hi everyone!

Mr.F & Karina...Get well you two we need you in the foxhole

Paul said...

FB

ahhh the big A. I grew up watching the Rams. Still paying for the therapy. I haven't made the pilgramage to St. Louis. I think they might be headed my way in a few years anyways. .

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh, they were still the LA Rams even when they played in the OC.

Nostradamus said...

@fb

What, you too?

I fear the only cure for what ails you is a Dodger victory.

Fred's Brim said...

big fastball!

rbnlaw said...

karina's sick? This does not bode well.

Mr. F sick? This does not bode well.

Me sick of the Dodgers losing? Does not bode well for my family. One Shiner Bock on board.

P.S. I'm planning a pilgrimage to the home of Shiner in Shiner, TX in about 10 days.

Fred's Brim said...

@Mr C - I am fine, but my humours could definitely use a victory

rbnlaw said...

Oh, I'm also spitting distance away from that stadium formerly known as Anaheim. Loved going to Rams games there.

Angel games are a firework-filled, monkey infested, loud music blaring nightmare.

Fred's Brim said...

GAARP isnt in Fenway anymore

Fred's Brim said...

@rb - that should be a fun trip. You can visit China Grove too. Not sure what's there, but the Doobies seemed to like it

Fred's Brim said...

I think Vin's press box is too close to a luxury box. I keep hearing some clown-ass Angela fans laughing it up while Vin is talking

karen said...

Crap Matt!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty still pulling way off pitches (when he's not staring at them).

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh. Kemp still sucks.

Paul said...

@Rbn

nice! Have a Shiner black lager for me.

Paul said...

Remember when Kemp was a silver slugger?

Josh S. said...

Can Matt bat 10th?

Unknown said...

KKKershaw is 7 strikeouts away from being the MLB strikeout leader.

Josh S. said...

Clay's got it tonight. Runs would be appreciated. I'll take up a collection for some.

Fred's Brim said...

*chips in*

karen said...

Even Vinny sounds bummed about Haeger starting

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nicely done, DeWitt!

Fred's Brim said...

wow - nice stop by Joyce!

Fred's Brim said...

Julie Chacin has really handled the Sawx tonight. Huston Street was activated today so he'll probably blow it

Fred's Brim said...

Joe Beimel in with bases loaded, 2 outs, facing Papi

Fred's Brim said...

LADMSB with a hard single to center

spank said...

RALLY!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Beimel gets Papi to ground out

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hooray for GGMSB!!! (The GG stands for good guy)

Fred's Brim said...

LADMSB with the steal and advance to 3rd on the bad throw! Now get him home!

Nostradamus said...

Hey, a break!

Don't strand him!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Russ is having a good game.

Fred's Brim said...

Russ draws the walk, sets up the frustrating double play

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh, it's Andre. Automatic out.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm wrong! Hooray!!!

Nostradamus said...

Dre?

Josh S. said...

In your face, MLASF!

Fred's Brim said...

there it is!

karen said...

We score first!! We score first!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Maybe I should do that for every batter.

Ugh, it's Manny. Automatic out.

Fred's Brim said...

damn - Manny was right on that

spank said...

nice hit. now its mannys turn

Fred's Brim said...

I think there were more Angela fans at Dodger Stadium last weekend

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit, I was right.

Ugh, it's Loney. Automatic out.

Fred's Brim said...

FJL keeps it going!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woo hoo, it works (sort of)!!!

Ugh, it's GAARP. Automatic out.

Fred's Brim said...

Russ looks a lot happier tonight - i like that

MR.F said...

Free James Loney!

spank said...

hey! hey! another run.
oh! no! gaarp

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit. Apparently it does not work with aging outfielders.

spank said...

Hooray!Gaarp

Fred's Brim said...

yikes - what was he looking at/for?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like hearing Vin say "doncha know." I keep thinking of John Sterling when he says that.

Fred's Brim said...

good inning from Clay

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Casey, get it going

Fred's Brim said...

work a walk, Matty

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

BISON POWER!!!

Nostradamus said...

Kemp?

Fred's Brim said...

That'll work too! MATTY!

karen said...

It's about damn time Matty!!

Fred's Brim said...

Joyce with the double!

MR.F said...

Belated BISON!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh. It's Russ. Automatic out.

rbnlaw said...

Well, this seems to be going well.

spank said...

These Angel announcers are fucking killing me man.

Paul said...

dodgers are 11 and 0 when Kemp hits a homerun.

I just made that up but it sounds good.

Fred's Brim said...

christ - do Clayton's walks ever come with an out recorded?

rbnlaw said...

Paul, "have a nice Shiner black lager." I'll find room.

Actually, it will be my second trip to the Little Brewery in Shiner, TX.

Just got out of the spa and 3 beers on board. Time for a Dodger victory.

Shame about France and all (snicker, snicker).

rbnlaw said...

Paul, 17% of the people don't believe in statistics; everyone knows that.

(or whatever Homer tells Kent Brockman)

Unknown said...

triple play time.

Fred's Brim said...

i don't like walks

Paul said...

Ahhhhhh crap back to back walks.

Kyle Baker said...

Epale!

Work is truly the curse of the baseball-watching class.

rbnlaw said...

Ah, what the fudge?

Fred's Brim said...

howdy, Krusty
you have good timing

Fred's Brim said...

turnin two!

Paul said...

Two!!!! No soup for you!

Nostradamus said...

Lovely! One out and be done with this!

Fred's Brim said...

ok Clayton you've gotten your chance, now finish this

Unknown said...

that'll do quite nicely.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice DP.

Nostradamus said...

Escaped.

Fred's Brim said...

there we go - attaboy Clay!

spank said...

I was ready to throw my laptop at the television

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Andre's alive!!!

karen said...

@Dusty Epale!

@Paul "No soup for you"...very funny!!

spank said...

Why do they always swing at the first pitch at the wrong time

Fred's Brim said...

Dre feelin good again - i like that

Paul said...

I say fuck these guys. We need to beat them to a pulp. I say let's get over this AL losing crap. I say I want a six game winning streak no a 9 game steak. How improbable would that be?

I am saying a lot but really would be incredibly happy winning 6 out of 9.

Kyle Baker said...

I'm a little behind on tha TEE-vo but it sounds like I'll take it.

Wish I had that 40z though. Preferably Colt 45 or OE.

MDIL just contributed: " there are too many white guys on the Angels"

Fred's Brim said...

good eye, FJL
of course that sets up the double play

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Rox beat Sox.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I have a feeling that wasted leadoff double will come back to bite us in the ass.

Paul said...

40oz of Old E! Good times. Watch out for those 64 oz.

Man the Beard is broken.

Fred's Brim said...

did Clayton breeze through the 5th?

Fred's Brim said...

that was an OK AB for Matty

Kyle Baker said...

Was someone disrespecting Air Bud earlier in the thread?

RIP Air Bud you were a good boy.

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton, you SOB, nor more walks!

Kyle Baker said...

Blake needs to shave the beard then regrow it to coincide with a triumphant revival in batting form.

Fred's Brim said...

lordy

karen said...

Kid K getting loose with the walks

Fred's Brim said...

that's fine, make them swing Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

no homers for Abreu please

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

YOU'VE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME

Fred's Brim said...

son
of
a
bitch

Fred's Brim said...

i can't stand that MFer

karen said...

Oh shit Clay!

Unknown said...

FACK.

spank said...

shit

Fred's Brim said...

we still got this, but it's just less fun now

stupid walks

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate the AL.

NicJ said...

it seems like we are giving up a lot of three run homers this year.

Nostradamus said...

Sigh...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Boy that French team sure did suck something awful.

Unknown said...

Clayton's ERA hit a season low tonight.

Too bad it didn't last.

Paul said...

Great now I am going to get texts from God about the Dodgers interleague problems.

Fred's Brim said...

get into one, Manny

NicJ said...

Im counting any win against an AL team as a bonus.
Set the bar low and its not so frustrating.

Fred's Brim said...

dammit

NicJ said...

Trademark shitty inning at the plate after a shaky one on the mound.

Steve Sax said...

Turns out I was posting in the puzzle solution thread for the first three innings. Nice.

You can find my rapier wit over there, if you missed it.

Steve Sax said...

The 12% of you who texted that GAARP has contributed more than Carroll or Reed Johnson should be shot, drawn, and quartered.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh no, Honey's going out to the mound.

NicJ said...

being forced to watch the Dodgers play the AL is punishment enough.

rbnlaw said...

May the Angels burn in hell for besmirching my beloved Ramones.

rbnlaw said...

. . .and I'm out of Shiner. This does not bode well.

rbnlaw said...

Then Clay breaks the 12-6 on Napoleon.

Fred's Brim said...

wonderful

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh. Damn balks. I bet Lyons thinks that was a balk.

NicJ said...

balk, awesome.

this night started off so well.

Steve Sax said...

they called a balk on that? booooo

rbnlaw said...

Oh for the love of fuck.

Steve Sax said...

WAY TO GO MARTIN!!!

NicJ said...

thank you russell martin.

rbnlaw said...

SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, a pickoff!

Steve Sax said...

And that would have scored Rivera...

rbnlaw said...

Talk about timely.

Nostradamus said...

Daaamn, that was close.

Steve Sax said...

Okay Kershaw, keep it together

Steve Sax said...

200

Kyle Baker said...

Dodgers, will you pull your head out of your ass and start hitting the god damned ball to where the opposing players are not waiting to catch the ball before it hits the ground first?

That's my one wish.

Oh, and a 64oz of OE. I guess that's my other wish.

Steve Sax said...

Yahoo!

rbnlaw said...

Have I mentioned that I really dislike the Anglos?
WTF with these guys?

Steve Sax said...

KERSHAW

KEEP IT TOGETHER

YOU CAN DO THIS

Fred's Brim said...

shite

nice line by Vin
