Post-Game 79 Thread: Spotting the Snakes One

DIAMONDBACKS 12, DODGERS 5

Hiroki Kuroda gives up 8 H and 6 ER in 1.2 IP, and it was all downhill from there. It's not like the Dodgers didn't have chances; James Loney ended 3-for-5 with 2 RBI (but killed any potential rally in the ninth with two on), and Blake DeWitt picked a tough night to add 3 RBI of his own. But with Jeff Weaver and Justin Miller each allowing another 3 ER, maybe it was better just conceding this game and hoping for better tomorrow.

Oh, and Garret Anderson got a hit, raising his average to .183. Whoop de frickin doo.

Boo-urns.

GAAAAARP.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RT @dylanohernandez: Manny Ramirez headed to the disabled list; Dodgers recalling Xavier Paul.

Josh S. said...

Good. Then XPaul can hit GAARP with a pipe wrench and then they can recall Jamie Hoffmann.

(You can never have too many Jamie(ey)s.)

Vin calling out Anderson was awesome.

On the brightside, I was drinking Shiner Black Lager and the new Smokehaus beer.

Dee-lightful.

Oh, and GAARP blows. Hear that?
It's retirement calling. Answer the damn phone.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and has anyone mentioned the hats?

I blame the hats.

Neeebs said...

What did Vin say about GAAARP?

Mr. Customer said...

The hats were pretty awful.

The Double D said...

In garret's defense, I had an old PS2 game where he was like a .400 hitter.

@Neeebs

In a nutshell he said that the
Dodgers were going to have to make a decision soon about GAARP because he was unproductive

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, Manny IS going to the DL? I thought he wasn't. I guess he wasn't, then he was. Or is.

Oh my. I need to get in the game.

Dusty Baker said...

@DD

I had a GameBoy baseball game that David Segui was really good on. However, I don't want him on my team now.

Dusty Baker said...

It strikes me that MLB Network is going through some severe cutbacks in programming. There used to be a lot more original content. Now it's just old shows replayed repeatedly.

Similarly, did anyone catch the LA Times reference to how Dodgers have cut back their Friday Fireworks from 13 (or something; can't remember specifically) to two? Lame. With the money saved, can't you go get us some pitching, Frank?

NicJ said...

I actually noticed the fireworks cut back and didnt really mind it. Fireworks always seem to me like something a small market team does to boost attendance. (Angels)

I still want my HD scoreboard.

RT @DodgertownUSA Manny to DL and Schlichting recalled. In addition, Troncoso optioned to AAA and Xavier Paul recalled for tonight's game

Steve Sax said...

Troncoso optioned; karina's prediction about outlawing slavery comes true

Mr. Customer said...

I didn't know Tron Tron had any options left!
