Game 40 Thread: May 14 vs. D'backs, 4p

Chad Billingsley (2-2, 3.91) vs. Josh Collmenter (1-0, 1.29).

Hi, it's the PNC Park Duck again, back after being obliterated by the Great Blogger Friday the 13th Crash. Since my masterful insight from Thursday's Game Thread is gone, I thought I'd pop in and pop off about another pitcher I've never heard of. Josh Collmenter? MLB.com (ducks can use MLB.com!) says this is his first career start after seven relief appearances. Hmmm, a handful of middle relief innings...give him a start...makes sense to me. MLB.com also says Collmenter has a "funky over-the-top delivery." Kind of like William Shatner! Heyo! Still quackin' myself up!

WIL SHATNER IS NOT LOGICAL

Steve Sax said...

Pads were losing in Colorado, but came back and it's tied at 7 in the ninth

Steve Sax said...

Giants still suck

Paul said...

Getting the Giants game. Not fun.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Spank said...

Aloha!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What happened to Mary Hart's behind-the-backstop seat?

Josh S. said...

I think she owns that whole little section.

Spank said...

That was fucking awesone Sillz. Let's see that again.

Spank said...

^Billz

Josh S. said...

Well, we suck again.

Spank said...

^awesome

Spank said...

^fuck it

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I thought the first thing Donnie went over in spring was backing up plays.

Josh S. said...

Is Collmenter a rookie? He looks 40.

Josh S. said...

Not fair. Dbags get their own announcer.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

He's 25? Are you kidding me? He has more hair on his face than Tevye.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm referring to Collmenter, of course.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to punch the first guy who said "He's that good" in the face.

Josh S. said...

The LFP is a ghost town.

Josh S. said...

I love how Fox goes out of their way to hire the worst voices in the business.

Spank said...

Thomas Lasorda.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What? You say Tim McCarver's not the best voice available? Balderdash. Next thing you'll be telling me is that Kevin Millar is not a strong analyst.

Spank said...

I want to go to a Dodger game and hold up a URINE sign whenever Uribe comes up.

Dusty Baker said...

As if these commentators have any idea whether ManU or Barcelona arengoing to win the Champions League?

Dusty Baker said...

28th consecutive single for JLo. Pathetic. I don't even have any tears left.

Dusty Baker said...

We trust in Rod - come on, man...hit it to the ghost town that is LFP.

Josh S. said...

I want to punch the balls of whoever thought a Kevin Millar/Chris Rose talk show would be good television.

Josh S. said...

Or even just television.

Dusty Baker said...

Just analyzed the latest data available. Have determined that we .1suck/54%.lame.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Those frosted tips are like the icing on a cake made of dirt and shit.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, Czar, that was a good one.

Dusty Baker said...

If you round up we're playing .500 ball.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Uribe's really a slick fielder, all things considered.

Dusty Baker said...

Johnson strikes out a lot.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Remember when Johnson and Ethier were battling for the most home runs in the league? Me neither.

Josh S. said...

It's time, Jerry. It's time.

Josh S. said...

Goddammit, Jerry.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Josh S. said...

Can Bills play first between starts?

Dusty Baker said...

Will someone bring me some beer? I'll pay you handsomely.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

How handsomely? Alec Baldwin handsome or Jon Hamm handsome?

Dusty Baker said...

Unfortunately more like Hugh Grant.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh, Hugh Grant handsome? Not worth it.

Dusty Baker said...

Equivalent to a six pack of pony Miller Lites, no?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That or a pint of Coors Light.

Dusty Baker said...

Take that Coors Light shit back, man.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Dodgers: Making rookies look like Cy Young since 2010

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I stand by what I said.

Dusty Baker said...

(cries)

Spank said...

They need to bring the fences in everytime Loney comes up.

Josh S. said...

LONEY POWER (outage)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's probably the closest Loney's been to a homer since that one he hit in Coors at the beginning of the year.

Spank said...

D-Bags have only one hit and we're still losing. Hooray,Dodgers!

MR.F said...

Can't we score?!

Spank said...

haven't had a Dre day in a while.

Spank said...

This has to be the worst offensive Dodger team since the late 1980's.

Spank said...

DAMMIT!

MR.F said...

Wow.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to dry hump a spotted calf now. This is some putrid shit. Embarrassing - on national tv no doubt.

Josh S. said...

WE ONE-HIT THEM.

AND LOST.

BRAIN...BROKEN.

Dusty Baker said...

Remote control also broken. This one was hard to frigging swallow.

(that's what barry zito said)

rbnlaw said...

What time does the game start?

rbnlaw said...

and I got the 69th comment. . .just sayin.

Steve Sax said...

Post-game thread up, sorry for the delay
