Game 115 Thread: August 12 @ Phillies, 4p

Clayton Kershaw (10-7, 3.19) vs. Joe Blanton (4-6, 5.65).

COMMENTS: So you want me to Penn another GameThread? How about this: if the Dodgers are going to turn this season around, this seven-game road trip against the NL East's best two teams is critical. We're 1-1 so far with a chance to take the series in Philadelphia if we can just do a little more of this and a little less of that.

No extra shenanigans like the Josh S. vs. Mr. C showdown we had last GameThread. Maybe it's the wrong game. I shut down the replay.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KEMP BACK IN LINEUP TORRE STILL DUMB HAR HAR HAR XFIP

I can't stop using that. It's an addiction.

Josh S. said...

TORRE LOOKED IN KUO'S DIRECTION SO HE NO SHOULD BE IN HALL OF FAME

Josh S. said...

Unfrozen caveman bloggers.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dylan Hernandez says it's starting to rain. Lousy east coast, can't figure out what season it is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

TORRE USE BULLPEN MAN ON STRAIGHT DAYS HE STOOPID GET RID OF STOOPID MANAGER STOOPID GENERAL MANAGER

Josh S. said...

I think it may be time for a CAPSLOCK Dodger blog.

karina said...

I know what's wrong with Kemp, we've been calling him the wrong nick all the time.

A journalist interviewing CarGo found out his nickname is "Little Pony".He asked Brad Hawpe why they didn't call him "horse" and he replied "he's too young"

Young Bison, then?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So we should call Kemp a calf?

Jason said...

If Manny is Bad Calf, does that make Kemp Good Calf?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAMN YOU, FATTY FATTERSON

Mr. Customer said...

Killin' time.

karina said...

@Mr C of course, since you can't kill Loney fan...sneaky!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I HATE YOU PAT BURRELL

Greg Zakwin said...

Sax- Thanks for the video, great music.

Steve Sax said...

Burrell GS puts the Giants up by four runs. Booooooo

Meaniebreanie said...

@Jason, of course your tab is covered. I look forward to joining you and knocking back a few.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm so sick of the Giants.

karina said...

@Mr LASF I'm sick of the Giants since 1989

karina said...

In Venezuela, when someone makes a mistake or doesn't understand something explained several times, we say "no seas becerro" (don't be a calf).

Sometimes Kemp is a becerro.

Josh S. said...

"Sometimes Kemp is a becerro."

And a new nickname was born.

In fact, were I the type to change my avatar mid-GT, I would use this.

Greg Zakwin said...

karina- So this new term can apply to anyone, right?

Like Ethier and Loney with lefties and fielding, Blake with everything, Podsednik with getting on base, and Theriot with not being a complete waste.

Josh S. said...

PODSEDNIK GOT ON BASE THREE TIMES LAST NIGHT.

You're like a dog with a bone.

Spank Raving Mad said...

@ Karina

Becerro is the same as a pendejo,No.

Josh S. said...

Huh.

Podsednik gets on base.

Josh S. said...

That NEVER happens.

Greg Zakwin said...

.322 OBP with he Dodgers, it was under .300 before yesterday.

rbnlaw said...

Wait, there's a game?
Twitter mentioned none of this.

rbnlaw said...

I feel surliness in the air.

I'm looking at you Josh.

Josh S. said...

Steiner just called James Loney Andre Ethier.

That's a new one.

Josh S. said...

I'm more huffy than surly.

Josh S. said...

Woop de woop!

3-0!

Josh S. said...

IBB Ausmus? LOL

Make 'em pay, Clay.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, we're winning! How unexpected!

Josh S. said...

Monday jinxed Clay. He brought up the 1-2-3 first stat right before the hit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Steve Lyons just explained how beautiful Sweeney's swing was. After barely managing to pop it up.

Stupid Ethier/Theriot.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Note to Eric Collins: Balls that fall 20 feet short of the warning track are not "well hit."

Steve Sax said...

Sweet. On track for a 27-0 victory, extrapolating that first inning out.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Boy, that Podsednik sure is awful.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What the hell is Andre doing?

Mr. Customer said...

I like games where we score runs better.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

My hatred for the Cubs has never reached such an enormous high until right now.

Josh S. said...

It's good to know that Pods has my back in a blog slapfight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID KEMP STOP BEING STOOPID

Mr. Customer said...

Ruiz is a fat Panamanian David Eckstein.

Josh S. said...

In other news, the Kogi truck has a a hot dog named after Raul Mondesi.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

That looks so horrifying, it must be delicious.

Josh S. said...

Yeah, it LOOKS awful, but I like everything they put on it.

Neeebs said...

@MC:

I think its time to retire El Shlepo.

Steve Sax said...

Nine straight retired by blanton

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lousy Blah-nton

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw gets his first K

Mr. Customer said...

@Neeebs

Hmm. Perhaps you're right.

However, I'm currently mobile, so there are technical difficulties.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Go fuck yourself, Ruiz.

Fred's Brim said...

god I can't stand Ruiz

Fred's Brim said...

and I bet he'll end up a Dodger at some point, and then suck

Fred's Brim said...

and epale, everyone

MR. F said...

I hate the Phillies so much.

Steve Sax said...

3-2 LA through 4

Steve Sax said...

Riot leadoff single!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Some action here to start the inning.

Fred's Brim said...

Costas on MLB Network: "Dre whizzes one into right"

ewww

Josh S. said...

I think we're going to need a bigger lead.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

OH WHAT THE FUCK LONEY

Fred's Brim said...

can i get in on this?

BLANTON YOU WEARING RED PANTYHOSE

Fred's Brim said...

not sure about that, but i'll take it

Steve Sax said...

No tootblan!

Fred's Brim said...

good call!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was one helluva slide

Fred's Brim said...

ok Matty, go the other way

Fred's Brim said...

that's ok Matty - you just missed it

MR. F said...

Yay. A run.

Fred's Brim said...

i need a coke. anybody going to the store?

Steve Sax said...

I can't wait to see that Theriot highlight

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax it was pretty good, but it would be better if it was DeWitt

Fred's Brim said...

christ - Joe is already calling Theriot "Ryno"

Fred's Brim said...

imagine how bad Raul Ibanez would be if he was a Dodger

Fred's Brim said...

good inning

Steve Sax said...

Muse and Silversun Pickups snippets take Charley out and in from the break

Fred's Brim said...

nice job, Clayton

Steve Sax said...

Let's score ausmus please

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That Scott Podsednik is just so friggin useless.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon "Ryno," just a single

Neeebs said...

Rancho Ethier!

Steve Sax said...

Pleeeeeease

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax I've wondered who's producing the radio shows. Whoever it is definitely makes interesting choices in music. I don't always like it, but it's always better than some canned "Dodgers Radio Bumper Music"

Fred's Brim said...

BLANTON YOU LOOK LIKE YOU JUST HAD YER WIZDOM TEEF OUT

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Dre, hit a granny so I can get a coke

and when I say granny, I mean some old drunk lady who can always be found at Chicky & Petes

Fred's Brim said...

wack

Neeebs said...

This will come back to haunt us.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID ANDRE STOP BEING STOOPID

Neeebs said...

Time to change my Avatar to counter that bad karma at bat.

Spank Raving Mad said...

Weak

Neeebs said...

Somehow I feel more...appropriate.

Josh S. said...

Did I miss my man Pods getting on again?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You did, Josh.

Neeebs said...

Kemper!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID KEMP KEEP BEING STOOPID

Neeebs said...

El Becerrrrrrrrrro.

Josh S. said...

BECERRO POWAH!!!

Neeebs said...

Mooo

MR. F said...

Wow, Kemp HR.

Fred's Brim said...

Brad Ausmus said a naughty word

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lyons giving Kemp a pass on his terrible season.

Fred's Brim said...

I give Lyons a pass on nothing

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

"Oh, well, it's not fair to the player to be compared to Willy Mays, there's only one Willy Mays."

There's also only one player who dropped his pants during the middle of a game.

Okay, okay, two. Babe Ruth also.

Fred's Brim said...

La Barba!

Fred's Brim said...

The difference there was that Babe Ruth has sex with a woman on the field when he dropped his pants. Lyons? He accidentally touched his own scrotum

Fred's Brim said...

look at the little turd, faking that limp to get a bigger cheer

Mr. Customer said...

Accidently?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's like Paul Pierce all over again.

Fred's Brim said...

make him swing, Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

damn

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

"YEAH! TWO-OUT WALK!! PHILLIES BACK IN THIS BITCH"

- nameless Philly drunk (aka Delino)

Fred's Brim said...

damn that looked good

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a total strike.

Fred's Brim said...

christ, Clayton, why are you scared of these midgets with a 4 run lead?

Fred's Brim said...

nice work overall, Clayton. I hope you are a Dodger for a long time

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

Hey, DD isn't nameless.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

TORRE USE KUO ON STRAIGHT DAYS HE STOOPID GO AWAY STOOPID MANAGER WE NO WANT YOU NO MORE

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, HLACK

Neeebs said...

I heart Kuo.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

YOU SUCK PODS GET OFF THE FUCKING TEAM ALREADY

Fred's Brim said...

JOSH!!!!!! DID YOU SEEE THAAAAT??

Josh S. said...

Pods reads this thread.

Josh S. said...

*goes to check if scottpodsednikismyhomeboy.com is available*

Fred's Brim said...

VALDEZ YOU TOO SHORT!!

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Smelly Belli

Fred's Brim said...

Barbatastic!

Mr. Customer said...

BEARD!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Woohoo! More runs!

Josh S. said...

BEARD IS BAD AT EVERYTHING

Fred's Brim said...

yes Matty!

Fred's Brim said...

even though he had no idea where that went

Josh S. said...

STOOPID KEMP CAN'T HIT FOUL BALL PROPERLY

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now that I think about it, Theriot hasn't been a total waste today. Strange.

Fred's Brim said...

Jamey keeps it going

boos taking flight

Fred's Brim said...

lets hold a 7 run lead!

Fred's Brim said...

keep it down, Belli1

Fred's Brim said...

that's ok, keep throwing strikes

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You stink, Belly. Lay off the sauce.

Fred's Brim said...

Belli looks like he lost weight in his time off

Paul said...

Hey what did I miss?

Fred's Brim said...

another high one

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jeez Belly, you're really not that good anymore.

Paul said...

Did the Dodgers pick up Latin All Star Negro Modelo?

Fred's Brim said...

Rusty Jones!

Josh S. said...

HOOK. BRING IT.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JOE NO PULL CRAPPY PITCHER HE DUMB HAR HAR HAR XFIP

"another high one"

are you talking about, a pitch, my attempted kill shot on you, or just me in general?

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh

quit fucking aroun

Josh S. said...

I'm sure he saw someone on third.

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul haha just the pitch, but if the shoe fits... :)

Fred's Brim said...

@Josh: a pink elephant?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

He hasn't gotten a single. fucking. out.

karina said...

In time before the game ends.

Go Belisario! por los clavos de Cristo!

Josh S. said...

STOP PROVING YOUR DETRACTORS RIGHT

MR. F said...

I hate the Phillies.

karina said...

@Soank becerro is not as pejorative as pendejo (I don't know what your background is,are you venezuelan like me?)

Josh S. said...

Belly flop.

MR. F said...

Oh Ronald. Please don't turn to alcohol after tonight's game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Screw it. Use Broxton for two innings. The fuck do I care. His arm can fall off tomorrow. I WANT TO WIN THIS DAMN GAME, DO WHATEVER IT TAKES.

Meaniebreanie said...

Tuned in just in time to see Belli blow. Despite the runs we still have a good lead. **Crossing fingers hoping we hold it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BLAKE YOU USELESS BASTARD GET OFF THE FIELD YOU SUCK

Fred's Brim said...

Tom Verducci is doing the color with Costas on MLB Network. And he he's actually alright. I don't know if he's done it before, but he seems pretty comfortable behind the mic

MR. F said...

My surliness is pretty high as is. I should stop paying attention to this game...

Fred's Brim said...

all of these goddamn singles up the middle

Fred's Brim said...

i don't like this

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That wasn't a bad pitch, Valdez just got enough of it to send it up the middle.

OH GOD NO NOT SHERRILL I WANT TO WIN THIS GAME NOT SHERRILL NOT SHERRILL PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY NO SHERRILL NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Paul said...

Fuck fuck fuck. I hate the Phillies.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why is Sherrill facing a guy batting .323 against lefties?

Eric said...

I'm amazed Torre left Belli in after the futility and then the unfathomable balk, then gives Jansen one hit and pulls him. I wonder if Torre is just calling in this season, he's not really explainable either.

Josh S. said...

It had to be this matchup, didn't it?

FML

Meaniebreanie said...

This is one UGLY inning!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WHEW!!!!

karina said...

I can't get mad at Rollins.Sherrill, I wanna say the foul language I never use directed at you, in English and Spanish

rbnlaw said...

Dear Dodger Organization,

GIVE RONALD FUCKING BELISARIO THE AX!!!!

Surly factor +4

Josh S. said...

Sherrill got Ibanez out. Curse broken?

rbnlaw said...

ZZ Top with another hit.
Such a sharp dressed man.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw "calmate pa' que goceis" (relax so you enjoy yourself)

Paul said...

Nice hit Jay!

NicJ said...

its insane how the bullpen just cant get outs here.

NicJ said...

and right on cue the offense comes up lame the very next inning. We rarely ever answer back after a big inning.

karina said...

I just realized tomorrow we get the Braves bullpen.

Watching White Sox-Twins, even if my beloved Sox are losing, I can't feel sad or surly.

rbnlaw said...

Or for the love of (insert saint or savior here). Have to use Brox in a game that should never have been close.

RONALD BELISARIO: YOU ARE MY FOE!!
(unless you're buying)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Surly factor: 2

A win will likely make it -1.

MR. F said...

Karina: What is the infinitive for "goceis" and what conjugation is that?

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
My beer is right here.

Surly factor down to +3.
Nervous factor up to +6

NicJ said...

i think i hate the phillies more than the giants.

karina said...

@Rbnlaw I'll have to try another saint.Clearly, St. Anthony is not a Dodgers fan

rbnlaw said...

Just throw, Big Man. Just throw.

rbnlaw said...

Just throw, Big Man. Just throw.

NicJ said...

please get the lead off guy.

NicJ said...

thats not what i meant.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What the hell is in the bullpen gatorade dispenser?

rbnlaw said...

@karina:
Go with St. Jude. Patron saint of hopeless causes.

NicJ said...

maybe this is why torre only uses 3 guys in the bullpen.

rbnlaw said...

5 pitches; 5 balls.

BRING ON ATLANTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
