STGT: March 4 SS vs. Giants, 6p

Hiroki Kuroda: 2.1 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 K in yesterday's 3-1 loss to the Reds.

Also yesterday: Lilly shakes off flu to pitch in 'B' game (Ken Gurnick, Dodgers.com)

And from "Dodgers' top picks on display vs. White Sox" by Gurnick:

After Ted Lilly's appearance in Thursday's "B" game, the Dodgers trotted out their top picks from the past three First-Year Player Drafts, including 2010 first-rounder Zach Lee.

Lee allowed one run in two-thirds of an inning with a strikeout and walk against the White Sox in his unveiling in front of most of the Dodgers' staff. He was signed at last summer's deadline at a club record (for an amateur) $5.25 million after being considered the most un-signable player in the Draft because of a scholarship to play at LSU.

Fun fact: The last time Sellers and Garland appeared together was on the Ed Sullivan Show, October 3rd, 1965.

I shit you not, this is also from that same Ed Sullivan episode:

Topo Gigio - talks with Ed, and his bear friend Bobo, about the Dodgers.

Freaky.

Orel said...

So meta!

Spank said...

FUCK THE GNATS!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

^WHAT HE SAID

karina said...

I've just decided I'm not going to create anything tonight,I'll just hate the Giants instead.

MR. F.P. Santangelo said...

DIE GIANTS DIE.

And that's not German for "the giants the"!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

^Well, not ONLY that.

Paul said...

Dodger themed "Everybody hates Chris" on Nick at Night At 11:00 pm tonight.

Never seen the show but found it when searching my direct tv app for the game tonight....couldn't find the game.

Mr. Customer said...

Navarro is not taking any measures to endear himself to me.

karina said...

I know it's early on the Spring Training BUT guys with the Dodgers uniform, it's Barry Zito on the mound.Hit'him 'till he begs for mercy!

karina said...

having said that Matt Kemp flied out at the very first pitch which really means baseball is back!

Dusty Baker said...

We're playing tonight?

[Have been out of it - work kicking my ass]

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina from 5.39pm

Create hate!

NicJ said...

seems like there are a lot more giants fans this year.

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck! Why are we losing?

karina said...

having said that Matt Kemp made a throwing error,Giants scored, which really means baseball is back!

NicJ said...

I think MR. C just came up with our battle cry for the year.

Spank said...

Where did I put my pants?

karina said...

this morning Mr C woke up sans clothes* and now Spank loses his pants,can you people keep your clothes on?

*that's what he said on facebook, at least?

karina said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Your Facebook comment re our first-world wussiness has cracked me up for over an hour now.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Strangely, your pants are in the middle of Colorado Blvd in Pasadena. I wondered what all the sirens were last night!

Dusty Baker said...

@Timmeh

Wash yer hair!!!!!

Spank said...

Mr.C lost his pants in yesterdays GT.
It is now my battle cry.

Spank said...

Karina's comment was pure gold.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker @Spank to tell the truth I've been quoting an essay an American guy wrote about Maracaibo and its people,it's hilarious and semi accurate,too.

Paul said...

Russell Martin is continuing the Spewing hype about the Yankees this year. He learned that from the Dodgers last year.

Paul said...

That really didn't make sense. Where are spanks' pants?

Paul said...

Don't blow this shit in the 4th Broxton!

Mr. Customer said...

I have pants on today. Not to worry (so far)

karina said...

lead off single!

karina said...

@Mr C night is still young!

karina said...

Bison,you'd make me SO happy if you hit and steal bases without getting caught in the process.

Mr. Customer said...

Waitaminute…

Did I just get propositioned by Karina?

karina said...

nah,Mr,but you might have another plans, it's still an early Friday night.

karina said...

skinny Panda k's

Spank said...

*walks in bewilderment wearing boxers,holding a thermos and lamp*

Orel said...

Karina, you smooth operator!

Spank said...

2-1 los putos de norte in the 5fh

Ciao,y'all

Mr. Customer said...

I was feeling mighty proud of myself for a moment.

karina said...

@Orel why am I a "smooth operator"?

Josh S. said...

Pubes homer off of Mahay, which according to Steiner is pronounced May-hey. That sounds wrong.

Josh S. said...

Has Aaron Miles been anything besides useless yet?

karina said...

useless...as Gimenez.

If Gimenez is the back up catcher/fist base,we're in trouble.

Mr. Customer said...

Definitely saw that coming.

karina said...

and my son just broke my heart with those comments...time to cut the umbilical cord?

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I'd be surprised if he displaced Ellis.

Mr. Customer said...

T-Slick?

*shudders*

karina said...

OT but this cracked me up:

@WhoWhatWear Hip belts! RT "@katierosman: Seat belts. RT @WendiAarons: Kim Kardashian says she loves to wear "waist belts." Is there another kind?""

karina said...

Darren Ford was the guy who was with Aguilas this season and went 1 for 33

*shakes head*

next time, bean him!

Paul said...

I wish Fresno Triple A team was called the Chupacabras Now that is a team I could cheer for. Minus the Giants affiliation thing.

Mr. Customer said...

Ughhhhh...

hateHateHATE

Josh S. said...

Spank had the right idea. Lates!

Paul said...

I think T. Parker was just a growth they removed from Duncan and feed it after midnight.

Paul said...

When someone types the words "Spank had the right idea" then you know we are in trouble.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This sucks, what else is on?

Oh, nothing. Dammit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is a sorry state of affairs. Our offense is hinging on Castro and Mitchell. We have officially entered suck mode.

karina said...

but it's spring training, Czar!let's have some patience!let's have faith!

;)

Paul said...

I am enjoying watching the Heat get killed even if I Should be pulling for them to beat SA.

Paul said...

Dampier has been ejected.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let the Spurs win. The Lakers know how to beat them in San Antonio.

karina said...

John Ely

1-0 0.00 ERA

7 pitches-7 strikes 0 balls

duh!it's John Ely, Gameday

#elymania

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That Gimenez guy isn't half-bad.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Um....

Hooray for productive outs?

Mr. Customer said...

If they don't get eh-u-genio a new game day pic soon, at's gonna piss me off.

Mr. Customer said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Mr. Customer said...

That blows

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That sucks

Josh S. said...

Rally got Castroted.

I'm back, I guess, but I'll never say "It's only Spring Training" again after The George Sherrill Affair.

Josh S. said...

"Eugenio Velez remains in the game as the designated hitter.

(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Seven minutes to hold my interest, Dodgers.

Josh S. said...

Javy Guerra=Efficient.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Wow, we suck.

Josh S. said...

I want him Miles away from the Dodgers.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, game recaps said Zito had quite the outing tonight, quieting his doubters.

Exxxxxxxxxcellent.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I remember last season, some writer (I want to say for Fanhouse, or maybe Keith Law) wrote a very critical article of Zito, and a commenter blasted him for it, citing Zito's ST performance.

Delusion-ville is fun. Just ask Wild Thing.

Dusty Baker said...

I like how Mr C and Marls at 8.46 and 8.47 alternately claimed that the game sucked and blew. It can't be both at the same time, lads!

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank: love the "putos de norte" name. Should it be "del"?

PDN
HOs
Gnats
Jints
SuckFrancisco

Hate them all.

Dusty Baker said...

^Marla

Spank said...

You're correct,Sir.

Mexibonics,holmes.
