Game 139 Thread: September 7 @ Padres, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (11-9, 3.01) vs. Mat Latos (13-5, 2.25).

COMMENTS: With the Padres and Giants fighting it out for first place, what's Dodger fan to do? Some might say you root against the interest of the Giants, even if it means the Dodgers losing. Some might say you never root against the Dodgers. Some might say they just want to watch some baseball. And some might say we will find a brighter day. That day? 2011.

Dusty Baker said...

Hitting them with three Misters right from the start.

rbnlaw said...

I have the chance to be Kemped!

Fuckng Gallagher brothers. So much talent; so much hatred for each other. Still love Oasis.

Is Torre punishing DB, or "playing the matchups?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm this season's Jim Thome, alas.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm protecting Mr C? Oh he's screwed.

Dusty Baker said...

Ken Gurnick just reported:

"Ronnie Belliard was designated for assignment and Trent Oltjen was called up from Albuquerque."

Dusty Baker said...

Did that happen last year^ or is this actual news from him?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ken Gurnick makes a brief stop in the present to let us know that Ronnie Belliard has been DFA'd to make room for the thunder down under.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait for it...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAMMIT

Dusty Baker said...

And we're off!

Theriot-4

Mr. Customer said...

2B, huh? I'm so going angry cop 'stache in that case.

rbnlaw said...

I'll be in center making it look easy, getting others to fire off gif's to defend me, and being accused of dogging it.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and WHORES!! ALL OF YOU, WHORES!!

Josh S. said...

Spanky's pitching? We'll be down 7-0 in the first after 10 straight beanballs.

Also, I'm not sure LF is right for me. My arm's so noodly, it makes Juan Pierre look like a pitching machine.

Dusty Baker said...

If Manny can play left, you can, Josh. Now get back in there!

Dusty Baker said...

That was my pitching strategy with Spanky. We take out most of their lineup and then hope we have a better chance against their bench. Genius!

Josh S. said...

I'm not sure I get the whoring thing. It's not like I'm making any money here.

I am TOTALLY slutting it up, though. For serious.

Josh S. said...

With the full might of Australia in our arsenal, THE DIVISION IS OURS.

Bon voyage, Manny Jr.

Neeebs said...

What the heck were you guys doing last night on GT? Lots of posting for a boring game.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF re your Tweet contest entry:

DAMMIT!

Mr. Customer said...

@Neeebs

You really don't want to know, my friend.

Umm...

That's a...lovely merkin you've got there.

Spanky said...

Fuck Yeah! A teacher from back in the day used to call me Dizzy Dean cause no one knew where the ball was going except me...

Straight between the eyes.

Neeebs said...

@MC: Yeah, I'm trying to 'sweeten' up my image after last night's hit.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

a couple of thoughts:

a) why am I not playing first base or third base?

b) when you call each other "whores" do you leave Meaniebreanie, Betsy, Nancy Bea, Karen and I outside of that specific name calling?

c) Neeebs, as long as I live, I won't ever forget that merkin

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I'm freaking out 'cos I'm hitting cleanup

Dusty Baker said...

You'll go 5-5 tonight, Karina. Believe!

Fred's Brim said...

Hey skip! I am good for a couple of innings tonight. I know I pitched in every game vs the Giants and you had me warm up 3 times last night, but I am ready to go! I am even working a Ming the Merciful beard

Small Sample Size said...

@ Dusty

Nice lineup

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I thought the whole point of feminism was that women would be treated equally.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

I want you to close. Dittmore has lost all confidence, his velocity is down, and all he wants to throw is his fastball.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There will apparently be a "This is My Town - Ireland" on the 17th. Irish food and a t-shirt soaked in blood and Guinness included.

Small Sample Size said...

@ Dusty

I did want to throw my name into the hat as the guy used to get the opposing manager to make a pitching change. Announce me, they bring in the righty, then tell me to get a shower. I don't need the supertar treatment.

Fred's Brim said...

Word! I see myself as a Takashi Saito-style closer. Decent stuff and all strikes. And if you need me to, I will plunk the guys Spanky hasn't injured

Dusty Baker said...

@SSS

Got it. Be ready to hit the showers. with Neeebs after I use him to get out a lefty in the 8th.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Throw at their head! Throw at their head!

Small Sample Size said...

@ Dusty

Do we HAVE to shower together? I don't really know Neebs that well and I'm sure he feels the same. I'm a team player, though. I'm willing to sacrifice to win.

Fred's Brim said...

Neeebs and SSS in the shower together?
*mind wanders*

Dusty Baker said...

We have to save on water bills, per recent memo from Frank.

Small Sample Size said...

@ FB

I feel like I am only a pawn in some sick and twisted game that is going on in Dusty's head! I'm glad someone else noticed!

Fred's Brim said...

is Neeebs' mom the Kim Basinger/Memo Paris of this team?

Fred's Brim said...

@SSS
Just be glad DB doesn't DFA you like Belli2

Small Sample Size said...

@FB

We are from the same hometown! Surely he wouldn't do that to a fellow Arkansan!?!?!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Great. Now we're whoring out to each other in the shower? WHEN WILL THE WHORING END?!?!?!

Small Sample Size said...

Blame the MANAGER!!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

stank-ass Giants up 3-0 early

Small Sample Size said...

Go Blue!!

Mr. Customer said...

@fb

As a wise man once said, "Fuck the Giants"

Small Sample Size said...

@ Mr C

The night is young, but that could be post of the night material.

el montanero said...

latos' pic on mlb gameday makes me hate him even more.

@DB,

i know i'm fairly new...but could i have the utility man spot on the roster? i fancy myself a 2b/ss type sparkplug in the chad fonville mold.

Mr. Customer said...

Young MC shuts down the Braves today. I fucking knew it.

karen said...

Epale Ladies and Gentlmen!!

DB...I rested my arm all day today and will be good coming out of the bullpen should you call

Paul said...

So then I said not loftnotts....lotnoffs!!!! HAHAhAHaHaHAHa!!!

Hey why the fuck I am not in this lineup of lunacy??

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What's with the lack of whoring?

Mr. Customer said...

Man, we really used all our momentum yesterday. It's a bit quiet in here.

I'm sure it's partially because Neeebs is wearing a pink falsie, but not entirely.

Paul said...

I am out cause I broke my hand on a beer glass?

karina said...

@Mr LASF don't try to cut me with that knife made of cardboard. Women should be treated equally because we're human beings. We are all equal, regardless gender, race, social status, sexual orientation, level of education, nationality, physical appearance, disabilities and age.

However, feminism went extreme and proposed women to deny our femininity and this is the shocking news: we are not equal, we have different hormonal cycles and our brains work in different ways, just to put the biological example,

Feminism pretended women to be bitter and emotionally distant Iris Gaines. Under any circumstance a woman could be Memo Paris. What if I choose to be a Memo? what if I choose to be a matriarch AND a career woman? what if I choose to be a single mother with a career?

I refused to be labeled AND I choose to live without intellectual boundaries.

karina said...

Fred's Brim, you had me with your "the Natural" reference

Spanky said...

Relax Karina, We love and respect all the ladies.

Dusty better not take me out of the game before the 9th or else I'll bean the bastard on his way to his car.

karen said...

Adrian Gonzalez is a pain in the ass

Dusty Baker said...

I was just about to say what a beautiful slider that was, but the next pitch to the next batter went to deep left and rolled around, scoring a run.

karina said...

We'll have to hit a whole lot to support you, Spanky

Dusty Baker said...

I've got your back, SSS.

Not in the shower, though.

karen said...

C'mon Spank, give those of us in the bully a chance

Dusty Baker said...

@ElMonty

If we get the lead, you're going in later as a defensive replacement for Josh. Which won't be difficult.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

I will probably need you to get two outs in the 8th. Can you do that for me? You know how I look to burn through a lot of pitchers...

*Pulls cap down, goes back to sleep*

Dusty Baker said...

*backs way the fuck up away from the feminish subplot*

karina said...

@Spanky I didn't mean to school anyone, it's just a knife made of carboard :)

Mr LASF you know you are a favorite of mine, aren't you?

MR. F said...

I didn't have to work today. Surliness -5.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

i'm such a whore :(

Paul said...

Matty your a star!!! In nobody's eyes but mine! Yeah.

NicJ said...

I think Mat Latos is a start too.

Is that not who you meant?

NicJ said...

damn you james mcdonald, why did you suck in dodger blue?!

el montanero said...

feminism makes me surly...in my PANTS!

Dusty Baker said...

^feminist

NicJ said...

*star^

karina said...

@Mr LASF for the record, I don't think you are. Cmon and give me a smile!

Neeebs said...

@Karina: Love the post.

@Everyone: Looks like I'm taking one for the team again on GT?

NicJ said...

dont blame me neeebs, i just got here.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

You retired years ago, remember? You're my surly old man bench coach.

NicJ said...

crap, almost forgot.

BEAT LA!!

Dusty Baker said...

I've said nothing untoward, Neeebs.

*hurriedly checks previous comments to make sure*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why can't Aaron disappear like his older brother, Chuck?

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, yeah, never mind. I forgot about the shower implication.

Dusty Baker said...

When goes GLEE start up again?

Meaniebreanie said...

Epale Y'all

Dusty, thanks for adding me to the lineup. I see that I am catching for the Spank man. This could really prove to be an interesting evening : )

Should I be hitting the Glenmorangie with hopes of making our bullpen more tolerable?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FOOTBALL IN LESS THAN 45 HOURS

NicJ said...

watching this team its actually quite amazing that we are even at .500, for a couple more hours at least.

Neeebs said...

@DB; I'm not only taking one for the team, apparently I'm taking one from SSS, too!

NicJ said...

stupid ESPN fantasy projections already has me losing week one.

el montanero said...

this is getting ugly. fast. stupid sandy eggo.

Neeebs said...

On Topic Post:

Latos is throwing the Don Sutton curveball in the dirt. You think we'd learn to lay off it for a change?

karina said...

In 45 hours, my butt will permanently kicked by the Professor.

karina said...

@Neeebs *blushing*thanks

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I have the second best projection, woo hoo!

MR. F said...

Neeebs, you're avatar is very distracting.

Meaniebreanie said...

@Karina -
In regard to football I am sure I will be the first one out as I don't know what I am doing.

I like what you said about not being defined or labeled. I have always lived life that way. Be careful about too much emphasis on the career. It won't keep you warm at night. This is the voice of experience talking.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

The fact that you're catching a Spanking was not entirely unintentional.

Neeebs said...

@MF:

Ya think?

MR. F said...

your*

Meaniebreanie said...

@DB - I guess I have been a naughty girl. One good spank deserves another. I do have a little resentment about being placed into a position that requires being on my knees so much. Just remember DB that karma can be a bitch!

MR. F said...

Offense!

Dusty Baker said...

ScottyPods!

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

The knees part was entirely unintentional.

Meaniebreanie said...

My boy Scotty P doubles. Come on boys let's score!

Dusty Baker said...

@MB re career won't keep you warm at night

I guess that depends on what career you choose.

cc Karina

MR. F said...

We scored!

karina said...

but he's the worst .300 hitter in the MLB!

Dusty Baker said...

That worked out well.

What is this strange, how you say it, "offense" you speak of?

Meaniebreanie said...

DB - quit while you are ahead. MB is reaching through the web to smack you upside the head.

Paul said...

@Dusty
oh in that case.... Get your head out of your ass Rbn!!!

Mr. C watch for the steal sign.

Meaniebreanie said...

It's a Loney steal!

karen said...

I love it when Raffy's in a running mood!

Meaniebreanie said...

Correction - didn't mean that Loney stole...well you all know what I mean. Dusty has me totally rattled. Can we at least tie it up?

Paul said...

@Nic

No I wasn't talking of Matt Latos but he could star as Ivan Drago in a Rocky IV remake.

el montanero said...

"whatever he hits...he destroys."

Paul said...

You know Kershaw needs......a giant tatoo on his neck.

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie you say the exact same thing as my mama, though she was the one who raise me to think in the career first. She understands I'll settle for the right kind of warmer :)

karina said...

^raised

Paul said...

"I must break you"

Dusty Baker said...

I have you rattled, MB? Uh-oh.

*makes visit to mound, careful not to walk right back onto mound*

el montanero said...

i wanna play hit and run...with tejada's face!

Dusty Baker said...

I love the phrase "upside the head." Don't hear it a lot around here, but I miss it.

Meaniebreanie said...

Dusty -
We can speak southernese to each other over moon pies and Dr. Pepper. I'll help bring back your memories. Then again it may make you grateful to be in LA.

Mr. Customer said...

@DB

No one ever gets their ears boxed properly any more either.

Paul said...

I need to listen to some Dino tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

Nic, get ready. I'm putting you in for the pitcher's spot next inning. We have to get something going. None of the sissy slap bunt shit, though, ok?

Dusty Baker said...

I love being in LA while I reminisce about not being in LA.

God damn I love me some Doctor Pepper.

cc-SSS, P Ditty

Meaniebreanie said...

DB
What are some of your favorite southern sayings?

Fred's Brim said...

it sure is a morgue in PetCo tonight

Fred's Brim said...

heh "Balsley"

Fred's Brim said...

my favorite southern saying is Bojangles

Fred's Brim said...

goddamit why do we have Theriot? I don't want to root for him next year

karina said...

In the words of Mr LASF, our Lord and Savior singled :)

Meaniebreanie said...

One of the ones I like is:

There is an ass for every saddle.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

"Fuck me runnin'!" is right up there.

I also like the whole construct of saying "I tell you what" at the end of a sentence. the first time my wife heard my stepfather say that, she replied, "What?" I had to explain that it was like a period at the end of a sentence but signifying particular emphasis, not a question to the listener.

Fred's Brim said...

is that a baseball stitch on Latos' arm?

karina said...

For the record, the southern accent makes me melt.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn Spanky throw at their eyes!

Meaniebreanie said...

DB
"I tell you what" is right there along with "I'm fixin to"

Fred's Brim said...

yikes

Fred's Brim said...

how is it that our starting pitching is the most dependable part of this team?

Dusty Baker said...

I've filtered most of these sayings and forms of speech, but I refuse to drop the "I'm fixin' to" construct. It means more than just the fact that a person will soon do something - it means the shit is going down right away.

Fred's Brim said...

positively dependable I mean. Our bullpen sucking and batters blowing are much more consistent than anything else on this team

Fred's Brim said...

ooh will John Lindsay hit next inning?

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

No. He'll strike out.

Fred's Brim said...

no he's the dead former mayor of New York

Meaniebreanie said...

@Karina
I logged in to ESPN. What did you do to access our projections?

Paul said...

For the record the Jersey accent makes me melt.

Spanky said...

MB is on the receiving end of a Spanky fastball. But can she handle the Screw..Ball?

Josh S. said...

What? Carroll for Barajas? Huh?

Dusty Baker said...

For the record, I do not melt.

Meaniebreanie said...

For the record the English, Aussie, Kiwi, and South African accents make me melt : )

Fred's Brim said...

fucking Rick Fucking Fox is on TV at the US Open

rbnlaw said...

Am I being criticized for my lack of focus on the basepaths and questionable defense again?

Where my pitches at?

Josh S. said...

Oh, it worked! Torre is god!

Meaniebreanie said...

Spanky - Bring it on! This girl can handle anything you throw at her. Now don't give me any more talk,just deliver.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


Wait a minute...

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!

Na'viiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Neeebs said...

Monkey Sighting.

rbnlaw said...

And have MB and Spanky exchanged numbers yet?

The tension is palpable.

Josh S. said...

Why do I even get excited about September call-ups?

Spanky said...

MB, Just watch out for the backdoor slider...It's a doozy.

Steve Sax said...

Ackbar with a leadoff double!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Baltimore accents make me melt.

Fred's Brim said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Gomer Pyle

Josh S. said...

DAMN YOU DORFONGOLFIA!

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie I'm doing like 3 things at the same time and I can't find the predictions.

I completely forgot English accent (I dig the Irsih, but I have to pay extra attention, I might not understand much)

Josh S. said...

Baseless accusation: Taco Bell is a cokehead.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Phil Coke is a tacohead.

Meaniebreanie said...

Spank - I will have my guard up. No one slips one in on MB.

RB - all in the spirit of fun.

rbnlaw said...

Naked women with accents make me melt.

*ducks rolling pin*

Steve Sax said...

This is going to be another sad 2010 Dodger moment

Dusty Baker said...

We all pay extra attention to the Irish so that we might have a chance of understanding them.

rbnlaw said...

MB,
I ain't complaining.

I hate Taco Bell. The franchiser and the fatass.

Mr. Customer said...

@MB, Karina

Click the "Scoreboard" tab on the league page. It shows the remaining games and projected point totals (for what they're worth).

NicJ said...

Taco + Coke = Delicious

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

In the game, or in the GT?

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie I found it! click on schedule, then you go to preview, it turns out I have an slightly advantage over the Professor.

Meaniebreanie said...

I'm currently half naked with a southern accent. Does that count?

Spanky said...

Hey Sax..Lighten up Buddy!

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

I'm sorry, what?

NicJ said...

BEAT LA!!

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

Yes, that definitely counts.

Meaniebreanie said...

Thx to Mr. C and Karina. This girl needs all the help she can get.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bud Black plays to win.

rbnlaw said...

@MB:
HI-YOOOOOOOOOOO!

NicJ said...

got to find a way to squeeze 3 more points out of my fantasy team.

Dusty Baker said...

All 8,354 people at PetCo are in their feet!

NicJ said...

lucky for bud black the dodgers play to lose.

rbnlaw said...

The Riot swung at the same pitch.

karina said...

Go King James or Mr LASF!

rbnlaw said...

I hope none of them get stubbed in the rabs.

NicJ said...

why doesnt loney just lay down a bunt?

they are playing him way back.

rbnlaw said...

Loney, for the love.

Meaniebreanie said...

You can always tell how exciting the game is by our tangents on the thread.
