Game 19 Thread: April 20 vs. Braves, 7p

Jon Garland (0-1, 11.25) vs. Derek Lowe (2-2, 1.82).

Do you like sweaty men? Then you'll love tonight's game, which pits The Sweatiest Man on Earth, Lowe, against Garland, who made the Dodgers sweat in his first start by proving beyond a doubt that perhaps he maybe wasn't fully recovered from that strained oblique.

The Braves dropped an eight-spot on the Dodgers in last night's ninth, but if the Dodger bats can find their sweet spots tonight, they'll be chasing Lowe and the sweat spot on his uniform to the showers.

Sax's note: I will be there in person to document Dodger Stadium under martial law. I will not be wearing a Braves jersey. Ping us with an email, or in the GT, if you're at the game and want to say hi (cognizant that mobile phone coverage in the Stadium trails Burkina Faso).

I dunno wtf you're talking about, I get full bars in the Burks (as I like to call it).

Josh S. said...

Just ahead of The Disputed Zone.

Greg Hao said...

@josh - naw man, those south koreans make good antennas.

CDMA only tho.

Steve Sax said...

Where's that annoying verizon guy when you need him?

NicJ said...

So when is the parade?

NicJ said...

For some reason a lot of non-dodger fans are calling me saying sorry like this is bad thing.

Josh S. said...

Vin: "The back end of the bullpen got their back end handed to them."

Josh S. said...

It kinda looks like ONLY Sax, MLASC, and Mr. C are at the park.

Josh S. said...

Garland's going to be keeping the defense on its toes, I see.

Spank said...

Is everyone still recovering from the "Afternoon Delight" that they can't comment on the GT.

Spank said...

There you go.

Spank said...

Fucking shmucks could not hit for McCourt.

Spank said...

You still got paid,bitches.

Spank said...

I give Mary Hart props. She never waivered her allegiance to her team.Unlike moi.

karen said...

Nice throw, Rod

Spank said...

We are now getting the calls by the umpires.Thanks Bud!

Spank said...

The Braves are always changing something with their uniforms.

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny, I love you, but:

STOP TELLING US WHAT UGGLA MEANS IN SWEDISH!

We got it. We had it years ago. Erase that from the game notes already.

Boooooooo!

Dusty Baker said...

You're out, bish!

#PackofCards

Spank said...

Sit down Okafor. You fucking mutt.

Spank said...

D.Fish Muhfuckas

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, I forgot I was about 8 mins behind on the DVR. That comments was about Barajas throwing the runner out trying to steal second in the top of the 2nd.

Spank said...

I thought you were at the game,Dusty.

Spank said...

5-0 Dodgers and nothing out of anyone about the scoring on McCourt meets the guillotine day. WTF peeps! I'm watching the Lakers and missed the runs but I'll still give them the FUCK YEAH!

Josh S. said...

Bud Selig has provided the constipated Dodgers offense some much needed Ex-Lax.

Josh S. said...

I like how Vin says Heyward is "struggling" with 4 home runs.

Josh S. said...

Would have been nice of them to hold on to the 5-0 score for Donnie B's 50th birthday.

Spank said...

Steve Blake is back

what_difference_does_it_make said...

I came to the bowling alley by my house to watch the game and every T.V. at the bar is playing the Lake show. I asked the bartender if he could put on the Dodger game on just one of the TV's and he said that people would rather watch the Lakers. So here I am sitting where people bowl with my beer in like some isolated corner....on a totally unrelated note, a commercial for T-Mobile just came on. The 4G chick is hotness. That is all.

Spank said...

Los Doyers. Goddamn.

Josh S. said...

I dig that they're using Eric Smith in the commercials for Dodger promos.

Spank said...

Stupid pass Brown

Josh S. said...

They forgot about Dre.

Spank said...

DRE DAY!

Orel said...

ET-TEE-YEAH!

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Ethier!!!

Orel said...

Stream of consciousness from WDDIM....I like it.

Spank said...

Ethiers hair looks like Bill the Butchers.

Paul said...

Damn this place cleared out. Finally home.

Dusty Baker said...

Good stuff, WDDIM.

@Spank

Nope. Couldn't get out of work early enough to make it to the Yard.

Spank said...

Kobe is getting a long break

Spank said...

Is that a herpe on Young's face.

what_difference_does_it_make said...

@Dusty
@Orel
LOL

Paul said...

These refs stink!!

Paul said...

I am not watching the basketball game but I am sure it applies somehow.

Paul said...

Come on Jerry!!

Spank said...

That was bad ass Gasol

Spank said...

D.FISH!

Spank said...

The Dodger game is over till the bullpen comes in.That is when the fun starts.

Paul said...

Where is Mr. C sitting?

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Anywhere he wants, given how empty the place is.

Spank said...

FUCK YOU CHRIS PAUL!

Spank said...

3 more innings of not giving up a run and we bring the Selig era in with a win.

(cries)

Paul said...

I think I saw Mr. C in the Dodger dugout chatting it up.

Spank said...

I think Mr.C. is singing GBA!

Dusty Baker said...

I want our guys to start juicing. Tired of seeing balls not quite going out of the Yard.

Spank said...

I wanted that cycle. Still a Dre Day.

Dusty Baker said...

Definitely a Dre Day. Come on Jonny G, take this one home for us so we don't have to go to the pen.

Spank said...

Weak crowd. i blame Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

(cries)

(hangs head)

Paul said...

I think MLASF might have disintegrated half the crowd accidently with his heat vision.

Paul said...

Matt Gwerieieeirrrrrr warming up.

Dusty Baker said...

I think Mr C may have used the other half of the crowd as a stirrer for his comedy-sized gin and tonic.

Dusty Baker said...

Paul said rear.

Spank said...

Could be the Saxy gambit also that effected the size of the crowd. No one likes being around a square.

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Uh oh, they're makin the call....here's where the real fun begins...

Dusty Baker said...

That's a great point, Spank. Most people are probably scared off by the exorbitant beer prices that Sax has set, that tee-totaling lil bish.

Spank said...

Saxy is like the plague. Wherever he goes,the price of beer inflates.

Paul said...

This seems oddly too easy....

Paul said...

We make Non-McCourt Party!!!

Spank said...

SELIG!

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Whoooo!! Dodgers win, but like Paul said it seems a little too easy...still have some beer left so I guess I'll watch the Lake show...

Dusty Baker said...

@WDDIM

Always order another beer, then you will have the excuse that you have a little beer left.

Josh S. said...

Garland: Complete game.
McCourt: Complete waste.

Spank said...

FUCK YOU KEVIN HARLAN!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YOU SHANE VICTORINO!

NicJ said...

man, bullshit flagrant.

Orel said...

PGTUP!

Spank said...

Dumb call

Spank said...

Okafor? WTF!
