Game 12 Thread: April 13 @ Giants, 7p

Ted Lilly (0-1, 6.00) vs. Jonathan Sanchez (0-1, 2.53).

We've read about Lilly's competitive streak, so this wubba-wubba* game would be a fine opportunity to discover if Better Off Ted can translate his intensity into Giants-beating results.

*Why yes, that is Portia de Rossi.

The Dodgers already beat Sanchez at Dodger Stadium — and really, any team that can hand Tim Lincecum a loss followed by a no-decision should be capable of taking this series.

Andre Ethier is beginning to heat up, and we know Matt Kemp will continue playing like he's in his walk year (which he isn't; he becomes a free agent in 2013). The pitch Kemp formerly couldn't resist, the slider down and away, is currently bedeviling James Loney, who figures to see (and swing at) plenty of them from the lefty Sanchez.

Also, Casey Blake is scheduled to start tonight, which should get Aaron Miles out of the lineup. Already the Beard's contributing!

It's been hard to figure out this 2011 Dodgers squad. For every two games they grind out, they go belly-up for one. There has been some true meeting of potential, and then some truly uninspired play from some uninspiring signings. A victory tonight would help tilt the balance toward the hope that this team can compete.

karen said...

How did you like yoga, Mr.F?

Josh S. said...

Nic, I see Joe Block has finally acquiesced to your point about the Dodgers and homers allowed.

Paul said...

Dodgers wouldn't have a Dodgers night also.

Orel said...

How was, Mr. F? You haven't missed anything here, that's for sure.

No Hope For Loney said...

Come on Rodney!

Paul said...

Fuck the pop ups are relentless.

Dusty Baker said...

Ok I'm out.

No Hope For Loney said...

Fucking Awesome. WOOOOHOOOO!!!!

MR.F said...

Yoga was very good. I enjoyed it. It was an intro class and not a regular class, so there were only 5 of us. It was relaxing and a little intense and meditative. ie, the kind of thing I like. I'm glad I went!

MR.F said...

Blah blah third out blah blah third base.

DUH!!!!

=(

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 8:42p, look for a post tomorrow about you...

Steve Sax said...

NPUT re: Dodgers rescinding the half-price alcohol sales for those six day games under the promotion. I really think this is the right move for the Dodgers, though I know you guys mostly disagree (and find it bizarre for a lush like me to be supporting a stance like that).

Steve Sax said...

@Mr F 9:47p Bikram I presume

No Hope For Loney said...

That was a nice strikeout.i enjoyed it very much.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul 8:25p I can't believe more readers didn't pick up on the great de Rossi conundrum

Paul said...

The lakers have scored 8 points in the fourth quarter.

No Hope For Loney said...

That was another nice strikeout

No Hope For Loney said...

@ Paul 9:54pm

How many does Bynum have?

karen said...

Here comes that weinie, Fontenot

Paul said...

@Sax

They are too busy on the Dodgers conundrum.

No Hope For Loney said...

Fontenot looks like he should be hitting the ball off a tee.

Paul said...

Wild Kuo again.

No Hope For Loney said...

Come on ,mang.

No Hope For Loney said...

LONEY TIME!!!

Josh S. said...

Blake in left has finally come to fruition.

Steve Sax said...

@paul 9:57p (sorry for the delay in this conversation, but the internet is slow here in Botswana): agreed, but this de Rossi conundrum has befuddled me for years, especially when I was in the throes of Arrested Development, watching 3-4 episodes a night.

Is she hot? Is she not?

These are the burning questions that keep me up at night.

So to speak.

Mr. Customer said...

Jesus H, can't we be allowed to punish this clown?

Steve Sax said...

three outs to freedom, my little Dodgers (literally, since it's barajas miles loney)

I am going to screw up the superstitions and go watch this half-inning

Paul said...

I do not like our chances.

MR.F said...

@Josh. S, 10:02

I'm not sure I subscribe to that tuition.

Paul said...

Shit I read Sax's post and we already have one out.

No Hope For Loney said...

LONEY LONEY LONEY LONEY LONEY

Paul said...

James hit one out please.

Paul said...

Another fuckin pop up.

This offense is dog shit.

Steve Sax said...

Jeez, Loney. Every time I think you are as awful as I can possibly imagine, you exceed expectations.

Josh S. said...

So, in the two games, Wilson faced/will face:

Paul
Carroll
Gwynn

Miles
Loney
Carroll

Not exactly a challenge for him.

No Hope For Loney said...

LONEY LONEY LONEY LONEY LONEY

Paul said...

I can only hope Wilson get wild.

Paul said...

Dead meat.

Josh S. said...

PLEASE GET TO BLAKE

Paul said...

Come on Carroll.

Steve Sax said...

if wide eyes hit sa home run here I will streak in the street

No Hope For Loney said...

Kick him!

Paul said...

Walk him.

Mr. Customer said...

Balls.

Steve Sax said...

well, the pants stay on. but a 3-5 road trip sucks donkey.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That inning worked out about as well as expected.

No Hope For Loney said...

Fiddlesticks

Josh S. said...

Hello again, .500.

WE STILL LEAD THE SEASON SERIES, BITCHES!

Paul said...

This team is looking quite classy.

*throws nerf ball in anger*.

MR.F said...

Ugh. At least I didn't watch.

Paul said...

Well Lakers are gonna win.

No Hope For Loney said...

I think I'm going to go postal again. Offline of course.

Orel said...
