Game 74 Thread: June 26 vs. Yank-Mes, 4p

Hiroki Kuroda (6-5, 3.06) vs. A.J. Burnett (6-6, 4.83).

COMMENTS: It's starting to feel like Groundhog Day with the Dodgers and interleague play, as we carry our 3-10 record into what is thankfully the first of our final two interleague games of the year. Remember, we were in first place on June 11, when we started our second tour of interleague duty, and then dropped back to second as the Angels swept us. We got a respite against Cincinnati while the 28 other teams dueled interleague-style, which got us back to first place. And since then, our next seven interleague games have yielded one dismal win, dropping us back to fourth place in the division. It seems like the AL brings out the worst in the Dodgers--offensive impotence (like last night's game, where we were shutout for the last eight innings), baserunning blunders (in Wednesday's and Thursday's Angels games), and absences from Matt Kemp and Russell Martin (whose 0-fers last night have them batting .257 and .245, respectively).

Someone has got to tell the Dodgers that "interleague" does not mean "exhibition". These games count, and if Erin's transcontinental return to Dodger Stadium (see comments from last night's GameThread) isn't enough to inspire you, we'll have to resort to more destructive means, like punching holes in walls (not that we haven't already tried that (repeatedly)). Until then, I feel like I'm watching the same disastrous day over and over again. Someone run me a bath while I hold this toaster.

Fred's Brim said...

When is Reggie going to try to kill the queen?

MR. F said...

I'm confused. I just want the inning to end.

Josh S. said...

Will this game end before tomorrow's starts?

Josh S. said...

INNING OVER!

Fred's Brim said...

thank funk that's over

karina said...

Almost 3 hours, right?

karen said...

NOW BILLY CRYSTAL????

MR. F said...

Fox is stupid.

Josh S. said...

2 questions:

-When does FOX's baseball contract expire?

-Can't we spread out some of this Yankee dick sucking across the rest of the 30 Yankees games FOX is going to show this year?

Fred's Brim said...

but Josh, there are just so many dicks involved with the Yankees

Dusty Baker said...

Jeter Jeter he's our leader
He's the one who s....

@DB

...ucks a peter?

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, HC

Dusty Baker said...

I'm a peaceful man. Trying not to get into it w Yankmea fans. They are trying my patience.

To paraphrase an old Arsenal chant, LFP do your job!

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly FB

Fred's Brim said...

lets beat on this bum

Dusty Baker said...

Speak English or some approximation of it u dimestore Jamaica queens skank skank sitting by me. Your tramp stamp makes a perfect target for my Nike!

Dusty Baker said...

Lots of Rwd Sox fans here pulling for Dodgers and taunting Yankees fans. Bless them.

Fred's Brim said...

if she's really from Jamaica, Queens, I would stay away from her. If she's from Long Island (with the tramp stamp being her ID card), commence to stomping. Watch out for the french-tipped fake nails though

Fred's Brim said...

HCK back out - always dangerous

Fred's Brim said...

and Buck is trying to jinx him

Fred's Brim said...

McCarver doing his best to jinx him as well

Fred's Brim said...

again, nice camerawork, Fox

Fred's Brim said...

and Fox with the unnecessary cut in to the Chi-Chi game

Fred's Brim said...

haha nice throw, HCK!
you left your purse behind the mound

Fred's Brim said...

man I love it when he's got it working

karen said...

YAY Karina's son!!

karina said...

My son's lead off single!

Fred's Brim said...

Russ starts things off with a well-hit single

now DeWitt gets him over with a good bunt

Fred's Brim said...

cripes

Fred's Brim said...

and he pops it up

Raffy up to get the job done

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Raffy!!

Steve Sax said...

Big cheer from the farmers market on Furcal's RBI!

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Matty, get him home

Fred's Brim said...

yes!! Matty ripped that one!

Fred's Brim said...

ha he was nowhere near that!

Steve Sax said...

Kemp has struck out 8 of his last 11ABs...but gets the RBI! 9-4!

MR. F said...

What? Matt Kemp got a hit?

rbnlaw said...

Hey, I'm drunk. . .almost.

Fred's Brim said...

he sure did - had a nice swing on it too

Fred's Brim said...

good inning

who's coming in for the 8th?

Josh S. said...

PILE ON!

Chan Ho looks like Asian Jeter now. It's freaking me out.

Dusty Baker said...

Homiez in my section getting restless. Si se puede is the chant. Some pinstripes ain't getting out of here safely.

Fred's Brim said...

Weave in? hmmm

Fred's Brim said...

somewhere Eric Collins is counting down the outs

Fred's Brim said...

screw you, Eric Collins

Fred's Brim said...

@DB, are you and MDIL ready to roll on those Yankee clowns?

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Jeffy

Dusty Baker said...

Fred's Brim said...

uhoh a Breezy sighting

Fred's Brim said...

@DB: like a vacuum

Fred's Brim said...

dammit, make these bums swing
you don't want to turn the lineup over

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, we're winning!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ugh. Sherrill. How I loathe him.

Steve Sax said...

Giants lost.

Padres won.

Rox just went down 4-0 after a Matsui grand salami in the first inning.

karina said...

Fasten your seats belts, it's a bumpy road.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

How old is that Taco Bell commercial again? I swear I saw it two years ago, at least.

karina said...

On Tv they call Brox fat "now here comes Jonathan Broxton and all his humanity"

I reached a conclusion: I hate my FOX announcers.

there... I said it.

Fred's Brim said...

Big John Studd!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Really, Buck? Broxton is big? I had no clue! You really enlighten the broadcast, Joe. Really. You are a fantastic play-by-play man. Give yourself a pat on the back.

Fred's Brim said...

keep going inside on him, JB

Fred's Brim said...

holy nasty pitch!

rbnlaw said...

Why???

Steve Sax said...

Jeter jeter jeter jeter jeter

STRIKES OUT

take that, Fox

MR. F said...

Suck it Buck.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Derek Jeter is fallible, just like us!

Steve Sax said...

Bacon lovers rejoice!

Josh S. said...

A two-year old commercial? That's a turrible idea. How Taco Bell gon' make money on that?

rbnlaw said...

OK, closer to drunk.

Meanwhile, Dodgers closer to win!

Boo!Ghana.

karina said...

Is it a requisite to be obnoxious to call games at Fox?

Fred's Brim said...

in that Taco Smell ad, is that the girl from Super Bad?

rbnlaw said...

Jeter did not strike out. He merely chose not to hit the ball for a 5 run home run.

karen said...

@Karina

Welcome to the dark side!

MR. F said...

@karina, yes.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This just in: McCarver would like to bring the "Dem Bums" moniker back.

Steve Sax said...

Chan Ho Park, still with the heart of a butterfly

McCarver lamenting the change of the nickname "dem Bums", 55 years later

Josh S. said...

Do we have a Final Countdown Guy?

Steve Sax said...

Sorry, not quite that long.

Steve Sax said...

Here's FJL

rbnlaw said...

James Loney: Man of the match.

Oh, wait. . .

Fred's Brim said...

i want a Dodger Dog

Steve Sax said...

Wow, they're actually letting Nancy B play

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Joe Buck is shocked that there are fans who came early and will leave late.

Fred's Brim said...

and there's the "early exit" jab opportunity, but Buck doesn't follow through

rbnlaw said...

FB,
I BBQ'd a bunch of brats. Not the same, but oh, so good.

I had 2. Daughter # 3 had 2. Nephew had 2.

It was a good day.

rbnlaw said...

Because Yank-ee fans never leave early. Right. Everyone wants to get a jump on the muggings at Yankee Stadium Station.

Fred's Brim said...

Will Dre or FJL get a day off tomorrow with Pettitte going?

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, rb! I want a brat now too!

Steve Sax said...

Someone wake up the Lakers hat-wearing, red jacketed Asian guy behind home plate. He's about to fall over to his left.

MR. F said...

Fuck Buck.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No, Buck, I really want to hear you talk about Lady Gaga! That's the only reason why I watched this broadcast to begin with!

Fred's Brim said...

dammitall how many times will you talk about Strasburg?

rbnlaw said...

Has anyone told McCarver to shut the fuck up yet????

Oh, that's right.

Steve Sax said...

Next week, Joe Buck lives his man-crush on Strasburg.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Look on the bright side, the odds of one of them fainting due to high exposures of Strasburg are very high next week.

Steve Sax said...

This USPS - Toy Story promo makes me uncomfortable.

rbnlaw said...

FB,
I can send you one, but you live in the city that never sleeps. I'm sure you can get one that's fresher, but not made with Dodger love.

karina said...

What's the name of that amusement park?

MR. F said...

Fuck McCarver.

Steve Sax said...

Let's go Brox

MR. F said...

Ugh. Another non-Dodger related emotional roller coaster ride. Sorry everybody.

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
The Santa Monica Pier. I grew up around there when there was a true "penny arcade."

karina said...

@karen thanks! :)

Steve Sax said...

That shore is a big gold chain around this Yankees hitter

Fred's Brim said...

@rb I think it's worth repeating

rbnlaw said...

Does anyone else's audio sound like it's in a cave?

Steve Sax said...

Pena K

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I remember the Pier having a big carousel. It really was amazing. I hope it's still there. I haven't been in forever.

rbnlaw said...

That was a wicked googly.

Fred's Brim said...

thanks rb! Know that I would probably eat it if it got here

Steve Sax said...

Joe Buck is definitely reclining easy up therein the booth

Fred's Brim said...

Has Buck been tanning? Is he trying out for Jersey Shore?

rbnlaw said...

MLASF,
Carousel is still there and so is one of the arcades.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

McCarver says this game is over. The only positive thing he's said about the Dodgers since the broadcast started.

rbnlaw said...

K fucking A-fraud.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good to know, rbn. Good to know.

karina said...

Thanks, Rbnlaw.

Is still working?

Ox, it'd be awesome of you K A-Rod.

rbnlaw said...

Buck is dating Sloopy, or whatever her name is.

Fred's Brim said...

goddamn ump - that was a strike

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Buck snuck in a Manny joke. It just won't end with these putzes, will it?

Fred's Brim said...

that's your walk, ump

MR. F said...

Fuck all of them.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rivera would have gotten some of those for strikes.

rbnlaw said...

Fucking incompetent umpire.

rbnlaw said...

Robinson Caruso up.

Fred's Brim said...

wow what a stop from Raffy!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RAFFY FTW LITERALLY!!!

rbnlaw said...

. . .and down.

Fred's Brim said...

there's no way Jamey Carroll even gets to that. Luckily he was playing 2nd

rbnlaw said...

Something tells me that the rest of you do not have ATT U-Verse.


. . .and FUCK THE YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!

MR. F said...

Fuck fox and fuck the Yankees.

Fred's Brim said...

good win, everybody

lets get the series tomorrow

Josh S. said...

Woooo! Now we're guaranteed 6 more wins against some of the NL's best!

karina said...

The best 4 hours this week!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Didn't FOX own the Dodgers at one point?

Mr. Customer said...

Nice win ladies and gents. Sorry to miss the GT, but I heard the game from the road. Dare we hope for a series win tomorrow?

Mr. Customer said...

@rbn/karina from 7:54

That's my neighborhood!

rbnlaw said...

Hah! Now we own Fox!

rbnlaw said...

Mr. C:
My mom was a 1948 grad of SaMoHi.

Mr. Customer said...

@rbn

Go Vikes, then!

Dusty Baker said...

I was minding my own biz, taking some post-game pics, and yankmes fan (and his young son no doubt!) started hassling me. I stared him down. He flipped me off. He was nearly a dead ringer for Joba Chamberlain, so despite Mrs Dusty's protests I said shut the fuck up, Joba. He kept eyin me and I didn't backbdown. Just kept saying STFU Joba! some homiez around me moved I'm and had my back. They joined in with "Joba fatass" chants and dude split quickly.

Back to tranquilo Dusty. I didn't start it.

Headed home now.

MR. F said...

Good work Dusty.

Mr. Customer said...

Why would anybody start shit in someone elses house? (I am aware this question is rhetorical with some Yanks fans.)

Dusty Baker said...

It's beyond me why someone would do that just out of a sense of self preservation. But, people are idiots as history has shown.

MR. F said...

And the whole setting a poor example in front of your kid thing, too...

Dusty Baker said...

True true mr F. sad state of affairs these days.

rbnlaw said...

Rox lose. We gain.

rbnlaw said...

Mr. C: Yes, go Vikes.
DB,
FUCK THE YANKKEES

Dusty Baker said...

Bridegrooms up in dis bish!!!!!

Celebrating at my local MEX cantina.

Si se Yankees suck!

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, you rock. Way to hold ground!

Oh yeah, HFYPGT up.

See you tomorrow at the Stadium.
