Post-Game 77 Thread: Deja Vu

DODGERS 4, GIANTS 2

It was deja vu all over again for the Dodgers tonight. We beat the Giants, 4-2. We pick up a game on the Padres. We saw Matt Kemp benched to start the game (though he entered in the first when Manny Ramirez left the game after pulling a hamstring roudning second base; Ramirez is day-to-day (aren't we all)). We watched Pablo Sandoval get tagged out foolishly on the basepaths again to end a Giants rally. We watched Buster Posey enter the game for the Giants in the ninth as a pinch-hitter, and record an out in an ineffective at bat. Speaking of ineffective, we watched Jonathan Broxton sit in the bullpen unused, as our threadbare bullpen eked out a victory.

We can't expect John Ely to go seven innings each start (5 H, 1 ER, 5 Ks and 3 BB in the win), so we had better find some middle relievers, stat. I mean, we can't expect all of this to repeat itself again. Can we?

I think we have a lucky Johnson on our hands.

Paul said...

Hey Dusty you found Bizarro Paul!

NicJ said...

It appears our Johnson has shriveled up a bit, Six K's in the past two days.

One pump chump?

Be ok, Manny.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm convinced there's a bizarro every one of us over there. I just can't parse the god damn threads well enough to recognize these individuals.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker do you think it's a chance there's a bizarro Karina at McC? my optimism would be labeled as spam.

Dusty Baker said...

Nope, you're one of a kind, Karina.

Neeebs said...

Yeah, I bet the bizzaro Neeebs spells it with only two ees, and is married to a Columbian.

Paul said...

Wouldn't a bizarro Karina be a Giants fan from Sweeden, who is negative all the time, unkind and not very smart?

We might be able to find one....at least 3 out of the 4.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm sticking w this admittedly out of date avatar since we've gotten two wins v Gnats with it in play.

Paul said...

Bizarro Mr. C loves Smashing Pumpkins.

Dusty Baker said...

Bizarro MLASF is a sheetrock layer.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh. My. God.

"I'LL TAKE IT"

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

Actually, I'm pretty sure Billy Corgan is bizarro-me.

Paul said...

I will be undercover in "the city" for a few weeks after tonight...wish me luck.

Bizarro Dusty, likes super watered down beers with ice, long walks on the Anaheim beaches and Timmah's hair.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bizarro Dusty thinks Coors' cold-activated bottles are a fresh and duly-needed concept.

Paul said...

Billy could create a song about that, dubbed over his voice crying and laughing in the background, with drums made of his old sweaters while he recites his old poetry to all you ungrateful bastards.

Dusty Baker said...

HAH! With the Coors engineering. Nice one.

Paul said...

Wait I thought Neeebs was the bizarro Sbeeen?

Dusty Baker said...

It's bizarro that I'm still awake. Soooo...I'm out.

Remember, kids: Zack Greinke has a tiny head.

Dusty Baker said...

ps- Happy Birthday (6/30) to Mrs Dusty and MDIL!

Steve Sax said...

Your wife and mother have the same birthdays, Dusty? Weird coincidence.

But happy birthday as well, from the Sons!

Steve Sax said...

Matt Cain is now 0-8 against the Dodgers in 14 career starts.

Wow.

Josh S. said...

Cain is unabel to beat us.

Paul said...

I wish GA would blow up on a coach.

I hope Kemp keeps his mouth shut, his nose clean and plays great ball the rest of the year.

Now about that bionic pinky for Andre.....

Fred's Brim said...

I missed the last two games. Can anybody confirm that Sandoval's baserunning gaffes were again caused by that feral slice of cake that tripped him up last year?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

MDIL = Mrs Dusty in Law = my sister in law

She has the same bday as Mrs Dusty given that they are twins.

Steve Sax said...

oh, sister in law. whoops.

i guess the twins thing would generate the same birthday (most of the time). well done.

Orlando Zepeda said...

i was sitting in what you might call the civilized section near the Giants dugout, and somehow the hooligans made it down there. The second they started using obscenities to dodger fans (myself included) the ushers booted them out. If they did this to Dodger Stadium's LF pavilion, there'd be no one left to watch the game.
