Game 39 (v2.0) Thread: May 13 vs. D'backs, 7p

Yesterday's rainout.

Clayton Kershaw (4-3, 3.12) vs. Joe Saunders (0-4, 5.72).

Dodgers returning home. Our ace versus one of the losingest pitchers for the Diamondbacks, a team that just got swept by the Giants. The Dodgers with an unscheduled seven innings of rest (albeit one that included a cross-country flight). Accuscore giving the Dodgers a 66% win probability. In other words, anything could happen tonight.

Our ace vs. an 0-4 hump? %-0, Pirates. Complete game three-hitter.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry blogger denied us all an outlet for snark yesterday!

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

God bless the Cubs.

I endorse MLASC's snark.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aw, we brought Juan Castro back? Goddammit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

*slaps Spank's ass*

MR.F said...

karen said...

Hello Everyone!!

It's sooo good to have Vin back!

Orel said...

Three Stooges in the outfield.

Spank said...

Bad News Bears

karen said...

The Kid is killing worms at home plate

Spank said...

He should kill that beard.

Orel said...

Men on second & third, no out — and Kershaw gets out of it!

Spank said...

Good job getting out of that inning,kid.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm late to the table, but how the hell does Young not score from second on a double?

Dusty Baker said...

Comments are working again, Vinny!

karen said...

MSB works it again

Mr. Customer said...

By what devilry is Miles hitting .277?

Spank said...

Yay!

Paul said...

Nice ovation by the crowd of 1200 for Dre.

Orel said...

Mr. C: The second double was a blooper that dropped by the foul line between Loney & Miles, and was picked up in time to hold the runner at third.

Mr. Customer said...

That was…efficient.

Dusty Baker said...

Home Loney!

Dusty Baker said...

That is some voodoo re: Miles, isn't it, Mr. C?

Spank said...

I think Loney needs to go back to T-ball.

Neeebs said...

Dodger Fans are creative. Thousands of them came to the stadium disguised as empty seats.

karen said...

deju vu

Dusty Baker said...

I think some empty seats have migrated from Marlins' stadium. Heard the weather is better out here.

Dusty Baker said...

CARLOS MONASTE.....oh, nuts.

Spank said...

The kid manned up.

karen said...

Wow! The Kid gets out of another jam

Orel said...

Kershaw escapes again! Maybe he's just challenging himself.

Steve Sax said...

Hey party people, sorry I'm late

How did 'zona open the game with two straight doubles and still not score a run?

Dusty Baker said...

45

Steve Sax said...

Whoops, asked and answered

Dusty Baker said...

Kid K gets the bunt down.

I (heart) Sands.

Steve Sax said...

Come on Ackbar, it's not a trap

Steve Sax said...

Dusty has a heart on for Sands

Dusty Baker said...

(dry humps Sands)

Spank said...

Boooooooo!

Dusty Baker said...

Man it's good to be back commenting in this space. Fuck Blogger and the horse it rode in on. I missed you guys!

(weeps)

Now I can get back to posting my masterful insight on the game of baseball.

Spank said...

^Booooooooo!

Dusty Baker said...

Whoa! I thought Vinny was going to say "brick shithouse" there for a second.

Orel said...

Vin, on Don Baylor: "Meanwhile, the swinging coach — you can't really call him a hitting coach right now."

Dusty Baker said...

In Rod We Trust!

karen said...

In Rod we trust!!

Dusty Baker said...

Vin said "Big Rod"

karen said...

Dusty--Great minds and all!

Dusty Baker said...

I'm rarely accused of that, Karen!

Alex Cora said...

Did anyone just catch that Fox prime ticket commercial for the dodgers featuring New Medicine's Race You to the Bottom? Are they trying to tell us something?

Dusty Baker said...

Missed it, AC.

Spank said...

Barajas!

i know i'm late with that.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Die, Upton, die!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's right, Upton. You're dead.

Alex Cora said...

Hit n run. Sounds like a group.

Spank said...

karen said...

I wish Matty would shave.

Dusty Baker said...

Dare I say - Bison Mode!

karen said...

Bison Power!

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Better late than never.

Spank said...

That ball was sailing.

Dusty Baker said...

Urine draws a walk. Let's get something going here!

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, Loney is up.


(cries)

Spank said...

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

That ball was Christopher Cross.

Dusty Baker said...

(SOBS UNCONTROLLABLY)

Spank said...

Fuck loney

Dusty Baker said...

To radio listeners:

Foul ball hit into stands along deep first base line. Lots of Ethier t-shirts and jerseys in the crowd. Spotted: a lone Jason Schmidt t-shirt.

(laughs because it beats crying)

Spank said...

Need a tissue, DB?

Spank said...

All that for one run.

Dusty Baker said...

Uncle Charlie got him!

karen said...

Yeah, that Schmidt jersey was pretty funny.

Spank said...

The kid is kicking some booty

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Thanks, Tito.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hank White is still in baseball?

Dusty Baker said...

Imprison James Loney!


(stews)

Dusty Baker said...

Finally we're playing a team shittier and more inept at every aspect of the game than we are! Can we play you every week?

karen said...

That reminded me of my little brothers Little League team.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aaron Miles must have some serious voodoo mojo working for him.

Dusty Baker said...

Finally we're playing a team shittier and more inept at every aspect of the game than we are! Can we play you every week?

^ That's not a double post

Dusty Baker said...

@Czar

There's also some juju at play here.

Josh S. said...

Epilady, everyone!

MR.F said...

Bison Mode Lite!

Josh S. said...

Wait, I stepped out of the time stream for a minute, how did we get two more?

Dusty Baker said...

Josh! Missed you, brother. Big hug...then embarrassed step-back, shoe stare and awkward, testosterone-laced question.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Crass shittiness on the part of Dbags.

Spank said...

What the fuck are you doing out there, Dre! Dummy

Josh S. said...

Hee hee. Stephen Drew is turrible.

Dusty Baker said...

You big dummy! (drinks some Champipple)

Paul said...

He is feelin froggy!!!

Neeebs said...

Can we hold a lead? Wait. We have a closer.

Paul said...

Daddy Yankee?

Spank said...

CHENTE!!

Neeebs said...

@DB. Can you drink champipple from a nipple?

Paul said...

Okay Padilla I'm calling bullshit, you dunked your head in water.

Paul said...

New ball please...not sweaty enough.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Chente?

Paul said...

Little crazy on the follow thru Pads.

Paul said...

I knew Padilla should have chose a song from Cholos with Visors.

Neeebs said...

He should have chosen, polka con mi amor

Spank said...

Fucking Broxdilla

Paul said...

Fuck nuggets!

Neeebs said...

Remain calm. All is well these aren't the go ahead runs that you're looking for.

Spank said...

Paul's avatar is a pic of Neeebs and Paul before the operation.

Paul said...

No after the operation.

Paul said...

I believe in Frogs.

Josh S. said...

Montero has a bad case of Joker mouth.

Neeebs said...

@Spank. If you look closely, you are in the photo too.

Spank said...

Rhinoplasty

Paul said...

Are we there yet?

MR.F said...

Why must everything be difficult?!

Paul said...

Jansen. Shiiiiiiiit.

Spank said...

Slim Pickens

Paul said...

Padilla peaked on Weds.

Paul said...

The closer is dead. Long live the closer!

Spank said...

Padilla's sweat will peak in the year 2031

Spank said...

Burn baby Burn!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Whew.

Neeebs said...

We make victory.

Josh S. said...

Paul's avi Is relevant, since we used a two headed closer.

Orel said...

PGTUP!

Alex Cora said...

Meet our new closer.

Paul said...

There goes my 234 game streak of having an irrelevant avi.
