Game 77 Thread: June 29 @ Giants, 7p

John Ely (3-5, 3.86) vs. Matt Cain (6-6, 2.72).

COMMENTS: Which way, L.A.? Sunday's Yankees debacle felt like a turning point in the Dodgers' 2010 season — problem is, I can't tell if it's a spark plug or a white flag. (Hold on a sec while I put another quarter in the metaphor generator.) If last night's Bearded Bombadil is any indication, though, the Dodgers may still have some fight in them yet. (Great timing, too, as a visit to the Bay Area without at least a token victory would have been deflating indeed.) If the Dodgers are to take this series tonight — welcome to Elymania, San Francisco! — they'll have to do it without the services of Jonathan Broxton. And since Hong Chih-Kuo closed it out last night, whence the bullpen? Never a dull moment, people!

What?

Steve Sax said...

Sorry Mr LA SF

Josh S. said...

Fucking FIFA.

Steve Sax said...

What? Sandoval is safe? Booooooooooooo

Dusty Baker said...

@ Nic, MLASF

Just saw a Tweet that contained this:

"Doc Rivers to retire; Pierce and Allen are opting out"

Hearing anything on that?

Mr. Customer said...

How is that not a penalty!

No, wait...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Huh?

Well, Ely is not Maddux when it comes to fielding.

Paul said...

Who is FIFA?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I just heard that Pierce is opting out.

Steve Sax said...

How can they give Sandoval a hit on that? Fucking homer scorekeepers.

"Thats not very good scoring."-Vin

kemp is lucky to get that one.

Mr. Customer said...

HAHAHAHAHA!

Josh S. said...

TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW!!!!

I LOVE YOU BLOBLO!!!

Steve Sax said...

Sandoval AGAIN! I love it!

Dusty Baker said...

"The Panda is a pussycat" -Vin

Steve Sax said...

"and the panda is a pussycat" -Vin

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I feel my avatar has caused some kind of negative mojo for Pablo.

Josh S. said...

@Paul: Just me blaming FIFA for the bad call at first.

Steve Sax said...

Shit dusty, you are too fast dude!

Steve Sax said...

Which one of you is snagging tonight's animated gif from MCC?

Dusty Baker said...

Tonight's True Dialogue Episode:

Mrs Dusty: [Looks up] What happened?

Dusty: KFP got caught rounding second for the second time in two nights! Hah!

Mrs Dusty: Awwww...[like she felt bad for him]

Dusty: Don't be nice! What did I just say about being nice?

Mrs. Dusty [defensivley] I'm not being nice! I called him a fat Panda fucker earlier!

Steve Sax said...

Ok, I'm getting in a workout, I'll be back.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm already looking forward to checking out MCC if this scoreline holds.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

FIFA = Fédération Internationale de Football Association

The approximate English translation is "What, are you fucking blind?!"

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, your wife sounds as cool as Josh S' wife (whom I met @ Opening Day this year)

Dusty Baker said...

That FIFA comment can just stand at the ready for the inevitable official blunder on Friday.

Josh S. said...

He pulled Sandoval off the bag.

It must not have been a bag of Cheetos.

The Double D said...

There's no place like home
With your family around you you're never alone
When ya know that your loved
You don't need to roam
Cause there's no place like home

Time's are changing everyday
We won't get by with the same old ways
No-oooo pulling together will make it right
With help from are friends I know we can right

Cause there's no place like home
With your family around you you're never alone
When you know that your loved
You don't need to roam
Cause there ain't no place like
Better believe it
I said their no place like home
"I mean no place child" .

Mr. Customer said...

Delino got swooped.

Steve Sax said...

All right, I'm sticking around for Kemp's AB

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp...single?

Steve Sax said...

Thank you, Matt.

Build on this.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Mrs Dusty is indeed a delightful person to watch the games with. I just have to remind her to be mean sometimes.

Dusty Baker said...

MDIL rocks the house, too, for the record.

Steve Sax said...

DelinoFail on that one... +1 my fellow Son.

Looks like you're running suicides after the game.

The Double D said...

You think he is thinking about the official SoSG Free Loney t-shirt?

Josh S. said...

Let's see if they're dumb and challenge Loney again.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

PH for DeWitt. Belly2 hits with the bases loaded.

Dusty Baker said...

DeWitt benched. Come on, Belly2!

Mr. Customer said...

Having met both Mrs. D and MDIL as I non-partisan (ok, somewhat partisan) observer, I can confirm their high marks in coolness.

Josh S. said...

DeWitt is quietly failing while Kemp gets all the attention.

Let's see what he does here.

And...it's Caroll...no Belliard.

Paul said...

Naw Fifa is that crazy bartender chick I met at the virgin sturgeon in Sacto a few years ago.

Futbol Federation.....That was in Episode I right?

The Double D said...

Why does Molina look like he belongs in Rollerball

The Double D said...

@ MR. C - I blame blogger. The comment number on the main page says one thing, on the article another.

I'll now gun for 227, with an over/under of 2.

The Double D said...

Back to Back
Belly to Belly

Mr. Customer said...

Oh, piss off with the Beat LA already.

Dusty Baker said...

Available for any futbol watching on Friday, Mr C?

Paul said...

Beat LA down 3 with the bases loaded. Nice.

Crap Bellio.

Dusty Baker said...

Johnson is up.

Steve Sax said...

Well, that was a wealth of missed opportunity.

Josh S. said...

If we weren't already up 4-1, I'd be REALLY pissed.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That sucked ass.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn, we have to do better than that with so many RISPs and so few outs.

karina said...

I don't know what you mean with this Johnson jokes, didn't get Paul's comment either.

What am I missing?

Paul said...

The seperatist will never win. Don't they know they are a pawn?

I hear Spain won. Yeah!

karina said...

Ely put himself together after the shaky start...I guess, thoughts?

Josh S. said...

Isn't Ely at like 200 pitches?

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

It's on. Lucky B's?

Paul said...

Which one Karina?

Most of mine don't make sense if you are sober.

Paul said...

Which one Karina?

Most of mine don't make sense if you are sober.

Dusty Baker said...

Who volunteers to explain Johnson to Karina?

Paul said...

Ely realized it was the Giants. Let them try and hit it. I wished I had a better guess but I can't watch the game tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And they turn two!

karina said...

By the way, I've seen the first Twilight movie over and over and I love it. It's a guilty pleasure.

I don't know anything else about the series.

How many cool points have I just lost?

Dusty Baker said...

@ Mr C

Lucky B's works for me if you're cool wit it.

Josh S. said...

UP JUMPED THE DEVIL!!

karina said...

@Dusty Baker is something a lady might blush on?

MR. F said...

whooo. posting from phone company park

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nobody explain how the Johnson works.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

-17

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

You're probably better off regarding the Johnson comments. It's a somewhat impolite slang term. As for Paul, we usually don't know what he's saying either, but we indulge him. (which one did you mean?)

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Yes, I suppose a lady may blush on Johnson.

Mr. Customer said...

@db

So let it be done.

Josh S. said...

Dammit.

I want that Really Big Chicken Sandwich combo.

Paul said...

Remember when the Giants pitching coach was Dick Pole? Man good times.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

LOL @ Josh S avatar!!! Butch Kuo-siddey and the Kershaw Kid

karina said...

@Paul @Mr C the Johnson on the 2nd hole/spot comment very early in the thread.

Dusty Baker said...

We really need to bench Johnson so this won't happen again.

Josh S. said...

@HLACK

Pon-Cho Kuo.

karina said...

Speaking of vampires, Josh is right, Ely is a vampire. A very bad one, like Dracula or Lestat.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Raffy's feeling hot-hot-hot.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Have you looked at what times the matches are on? (Meaning, are they different during this next round or the same.) I haven't had a glance.

Josh S. said...

Ah, Romo...Dodger fan and giver-upper of the two-run Manny jack back in April.

Josh S. said...

DB: Still 7 and 11:30.

Dusty Baker said...

I would expect Buster to be feeling hot-hot-hot.

Dusty Baker said...

Is he still dating Jessica Simpson?

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Yeah...not entirely unrelated to the Jenna Jameson comment from last GT. That's about as far as I'm willing to go in a thread comment.

Dusty Baker said...

If they had a text-in poll for consistently shittiest facial hair, Karina's son would win hands down.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Blegh.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

Like a Tawainese Cowboy

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Same times for the quarters.

7/11:30

Josh S. said...

I'll take missed opportunities to blow the game open over missed opportunities to take the lead or even score at all.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

6-3 Rockies, top 9...

Paul said...

@Karina.
I thought Reed was better in the second spot of the lineup. Putting him in the 8 hole well that doesn't make sense.

karina said...

@Mr C I'm afraid of that Jenna Jameson comment.

This Johnson conversation could have happened with my friends. The difference is they would have explained the more graphic way possible while I'm blushing.

I'm really grateful you haven't said anything.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

Troncoso setting up for Breezy? Oh me oh my.

Paul said...

Ted Lilly headed to the Dodgers.

Did I wishful type again?

karina said...

Thanks Paul.

@Dusty Baker it's ironic my son is fond to sport odd facial hair when I'm so fond of stubble and well groomed beard.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Boy that was a nice catch.

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe these two fantastic catches will reinvigorate Kemp. I believe in you man!

Josh S. said...

Kemp is essentially flipping off Torre with his glove work.

Mr. Customer said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Josh S. said...

I find it VERY hard to believe there are 40 games Tron didn't appear in.

Paul said...

Kemp catch it? Damn I hate local games.

Dusty Baker said...

Torre won't see it though because his finger in buried in his glove. But it's there.

Dusty Baker said...

Excellent catch, in fact, Paul. He again didn't get a good jump but caught up with it and gloved it.

Josh S. said...

Fetal position: ENGAGE!

NicJ said...

Ugh, Torre over managing again.

Mr. Customer said...

Oh, Breezy, just don't completely screw us over. That is all I ask.

Paul said...

40 games of freedom is the only chance he had to feel good because his arm feels bad.

Dusty Baker said...

Why is Torre doing this? No he'll have to have FlatB get 4 outs.

The Double D said...

Calling all ill-fitting hats

NicJ said...

first pitch wasnt a HR so it was better than i expected.

Mr. Customer said...

Wha?!

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

fo' shizzle my brizzle?

The Double D said...

Ming - "Klytus, I'm bored. What play thing do you have for me"

Dusty Baker said...

That was GREAT stuff from FB!

Josh S. said...

First strikeout for Breezy since May 17, according to an MSTi article from earlier today.

NicJ said...

Seems like Breezy gets in trouble when he throws his fastball.

The Double D said...

Huff and Puff

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sherrill looked great during that AB. Hopefully he's got his act together now.

Paul said...

Screw this Torre bring out the gimp!!

karina said...

Does anyone want insurance?

Dusty Baker said...

The Gimp is sleeping.

NicJ said...

3 run lead against the giants is equal to a 6 run lead against a normal team.

With that being said we could still blow that.

Dusty Baker said...

2 hits for Kemp. 2 great catches. All off the bench.

NicJ said...

Seems like Kemp has responded.

Josh S. said...

He just burrelly missed it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp is 2-for-4? I did not see that coming.

Dusty Baker said...

This is all on you now, Nic.

Paul said...

Well I guess Honeycutt is gonna have to wake him up.

NicJ said...

Miller to close. Former giant = giant killer.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

From MCC -

"STOOPID GAME

BE LESS STOOPID"

I swear, I think it's really a covert MENSA chapter.

NicJ said...

HA! totally guessed it.

Josh S. said...

I can't make closer jokes about Justin Miller!

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

Justin Miller? Really? This should be... educational?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Miller the Tattooed Lady has a lot of pressure on him right now. I think he will respond well.

NicJ said...

Miller will be fine.

What could possibly go wrong?

karina said...

Nice avatar, Mr LASF.

I don't understand people over MCC. I'm really scared of that place.

But all resumes to: how can anyone be a Giants fan?

NicJ said...

thanks for the vote of confidence, VIn.

Dusty Baker said...

Miller is wearing Billy Dee Williams' number. He'll be fine.

Dusty Baker said...

Works every time.

Dusty Baker said...

Like I said.

Mr. Customer said...

*le sigh*

Josh S. said...

Welp...

NicJ said...

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG!?!?!?!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Blegh.

Get Weaver going.

Dusty Baker said...

Josh, how's that bubble city coming along?

NicJ said...

We're cool. just get three outs.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

ffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!

karina said...

@Mr LASF are you willing to teach courses on how to punch walls?

Josh S. said...

Fuck productivity, DB. My ass has been glued to the couch the whole game.

Dusty Baker said...

Everybody be cool.

NicJ said...

there's one.

Mr. Customer said...

Ok, hopefully that sequence does not repeat, but I'll take an out.

NicJ said...

Be cool honey bunny.

Dusty Baker said...

Josh! My man in Glendale.

Paul said...

Stay on target.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, MTL.

NicJ said...

So posey has to catch if this goes extras?

Mr. Customer said...

Like Fonzie?

NicJ said...

nobody say finish him.

Mr. Customer said...

Good...

NicJ said...

theres two.

Kemp with two hands on the pop up!!

Dusty Baker said...

Breaking news from "Roll Call":

Democrats Beat GOP With Late Rally in Congressional Baseball Game
June 29, 2010, 10:42 P.M.
A late rally propelled Democrats past Republicans 13-5 at Tuesday’s 49th Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Is it just me, or does MTL look like Paul Shaffer for some reason?

Steve Sax said...

You know, there are times I really wish we had a closer.

Mr. Customer said...

Monday sez "That was a must throw a strike pitch, 3 and 2".

Presented without further comment.

Josh S. said...

They play a riff from Jordin Sparks' "Tattoo" after every out.

(Does that song have riffs?)

Paul said...

Come on!

NicJ said...

just leave him in Joe.

Steve Sax said...

This is one of those times.

NicJ said...

GOD DAMN JOE WITH THE OVER MANAGING.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Joe's sick of MTL. He still misses Kevin Eubanks.

NicJ said...

Belisario in.

What could possibly go wrong?

Steve Sax said...

Will Posey atone for his late whiff last night?

Mr. Customer said...

That was abrupt.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RAFFY FTW LITERALLY

Steve Sax said...

Nope.

Dodgers win!

Josh S. said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

BUSTED.

NicJ said...

See i told you, just bring in Belisario.

Torre is a genius.

Dusty Baker said...

I love tabbed browsing. #McCoveyChronicles

NicJ said...

BONSTER!!

Paul said...

Ummmmmm Lets switch Loney and Kemp while we are at it.

Dusty Baker said...

Matt Cain 0-8 v Dodgers....me encanta.

Paul said...

Hey we won!!! 20 second delay and all.

NicJ said...

Belli with the one pitch save!

karina said...

Loving this! and screw* productivity because I'm getting tomorrow's game on TV.

*sorry for the foul language

Dusty Baker said...

That was mostly satisfying.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm saving my obligatory post for the PGT.

karina said...

why mostly, Dusty Baker?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Manny inury

Dusty Baker said...

First McC news trickling in:

"Wipeout on ABC
Love that show…"

Anyone stupid enough to like the Gnats seems a perfect candidate to watch this tripe.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.

Sorry it's so short, but I gotta go get in line for the new Twilight movie. See ya'.
