Game 57 Thread: June 1 vs. Rox, 7p

Managers get the unsexiest bobbleheads, don't you think?

Jon Garland (1-4, 4.31) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (0-5, 5.86).

What's more surprising: Ubaldo Jimenez's Ubad start in 2011, or that the Dodgers were 3-1 against him in 2010? And what's wrong with Ubaldo this year? Diminished velocity is the symptom, but the cause isn't clear. What is clear is that the Dodgers are going for the sweep of the Rockies — which would make it their first sweep of the season. Are you kidding me? It's been a long two months.

I wonder if they'll have a 'stache variant.

I'm at the game tonight, if anyone wants to say hi.

Josh S. said...

^ Or rather, I will be there. I'm not there yet.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

maybe the stash will be like a Mr. Potato head and just kinda clip on.

QuadSevens said...

Let's hope the bobblehead curse doesn't rear it's head in the form of an unintentional double visit to the mound tonight.

Steve Sax said...

Brox was always said to hsve diminished velocity.

Jason Schmidt, right before we signed him, as well.

Hmm.

Mr. Customer said...

I don't know about you guys, but my own velocity is tapering off, as well.

Maybe I should mix in a salad or two.

Mr. Customer said...

We should have taken note when Schmidt brought his rotator cuff to his physical in a freezer bag.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr C returns!

Dusty Baker said...

Headed over to the Ravine now. Josh I think we're just a few sections apart.

Mr. Customer said...

I am, sadly, not headed to the ravine, or shenanigans would surely be afoot.

Mr. Customer said...

Speaking of which, I need to go the fuck home. Back in a flash, boys and girls.

Steve Sax said...

Have a good time, Dusty and Josh S!

Send us a picture! And send us a picture of the bobblehead!

Dusty Baker said...

I'll ty to snap a photo of the rare Kemp-Loney dry hump, Sax.

Spank said...

On the bowl,Vinny!

Jason said...

Completing the cycle from the racing game, I'm now on the bus home. The guy sitting across from me is drinking a can of Steel Reserve hidden in his man purse through a straw.

Mr. Customer said...

Sweet baby jeesus, they opened a BevMo a block and a half from my place. This is temptation greater than one man should be forced to bear.

Dusty Baker said...

Humping bears! Humping bears!

Oh, wait, that's not what you meant, Mr C.

Dusty Baker said...

At the Yard, Vinny!

Mr. Customer said...

No, that's exactly what I meant.

Spank said...

I would give half my liver for a man purse.

Spank said...

Epale,peeps!

Alex Cora said...

Up on the top deck with mamma Cora. Not a lot o people here. Kinda sad.

MR.F said...

@AC: It just means McCourt will be out of here sooner!

Mr. Customer said...

Top deck's alright. People leave you in peace up there.

Mr. Customer said...

What's shakin', Spank?

Alex Cora said...

So sparse that I an actually post on the AT&T 3G network. Wonder how long that will last.

NicJ said...

It is so empty here, my cell service isn't even being affected.

MR.F said...

Wotcher, everybody!

MR.F said...

Wotcher, everybody!

NicJ said...

Great minds subscribe to crappy cell service alike.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Orel, it's never too late to have your first in everything :)

Spank said...

I get a Garland badge if he dry humps Toto while singing "Over the Rainbow".

Steve Sax said...

AC: watch out for smoke and get the hell out of there quick with your mom if you see any smoke

Steve Sax said...

Garland escapes the first

A "well-rested" Furcal grounds out to short on the second pitch

Steve Sax said...

Snakes tied with the Fish, bottom 9 for AZ

Dodgers go super-quick in the first

Spank said...

Kemp with the mega FAIL.

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff triple for Wigginton. That's not good.

NicJ said...

Ubaldo hasn't had a scoreless outing yet this year.

I wonder what is going to happen tonight?

Spank said...

Furcal
Blake
Ethier
Kemp
Gibbons
1B
Barajas
Carroll
Garland

karina said...

I'm getting Vinny on tv, that's good.

My bro is rehearsing with his band next room, that's bad.

just texted him to drop it :(

Spank said...

@ karina

Does your brothers band suck that bad? :)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dodgers back to being crappy.

karina said...

directv sucks, I lost the signal, what happened?

@Spank actually, I'm the biggest fan of whatever my bro plays, but I don't get Vinny much so when I can listen to him, I treasure it

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck, I forgot I was Schleprock.

Steve Sax said...

Jeez, does Garland know he's pitching today? What the fuck?

karina said...

it had to be Dodgers-killer Helton

Spank said...

I think I killed Neeebs winning mojo.

Orel said...

@Karina "Orel, it's never too late to have your first in everything :)"

I like where this is going.

Steve Sax said...

Pictures of the Mattingly bobblehead, via DelinO, posted!

Spank said...

Okay,It's Mr.C's fault.

Mr. Customer said...

I'll wear it.

DelinO said...

Delino is watching

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Spank said...

Seriously,Do people really go to Dodger games just to get a bobblehead?

Mr. Customer said...

Numbers don't lie. People like free shit.

Spank said...

We need runs

karina said...

@Orel *blushes* it's true!

Orel said...

Ah, I made Karina *blush*. My day is complete!

Spank said...

As do I,Mr.Customer.As do I.

Spank said...

This is the second time Prime Ticket muted Montel's commercial

karina said...

*blushes more*

Orel said...

Woo hoo!

Dusty Baker said...

Josh S and Dusty up in dis bish!

We were just having a conversation that involved Dodger pain, and I actually paused and made an air (cries) sign to convey the proper feeling for the moment.

This is your fault, Fanerman!

Orel said...

The Dodgers: good for what ails Ubaldo.

Dusty Baker said...

I can't believe there are more SoSG knuckleheads in tha heezy tonight and you didn't let us know.

cc: AC, NicJ, DelinO, AC's mom

Josh S. said...

I have my Lindbloomers on!

Okay, Lindblom, let's see what you can do.

Josh S. said...

I'm taking my Lindbloomers off now.

Dusty Baker said...

Josh and I will have a Bloomin onion at Outback after the game.

karina said...

AWESOME King James!

Spank said...

Nice play,1B man!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Huh.

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 7-5 in the 11th

Orel said...

Pretty slick, J-Lo!

Mr. Customer said...

Son of a hurr

Steve Sax said...

one pitch, one out from Loney

Steve Sax said...

3-0 Rox through seven.

What happened to the Dodgers' offense?

Spank said...

@ Ackbar

That's a shame.

Steve Sax said...

well, this isn't good for mr. elbert.

Orel said...

They used up all of June's runs yesterday.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'll admit it: I'm watching Modern Family right now.

Josh S. said...

Josh!
Dusty!
Nic!
Delino!
AC!

By our powers combined, we are CAPTAIN SCHLEPROCK!

Steve Sax said...

Shootin' down the walls of Fowler, bang bang

I am the Guerrier

Steve Sax said...

I suppose we still have a chance, with six outs left and down by three.

(cries)

"Dodgers looking for some late inning magic,..." --Charley Steiner

NO SHIT SHERLOCK

Steve Sax said...

"Jimenez, by far his best performance of the season" -Charley Steiner

NO SHIT SHERLOCK

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers retired on five pitches in the seventh inning

Jimenez retires Barajas on one pitch.

WHERE IS THE PATIENCE

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"Steve Sax, growing irritated with my expressing the obvious" - Charley Steiner

NO SHIT, SHERLOCK

karina said...

Sax. my dear, why are you so grumpy? it's not like it's the first time a pitcher with a mediocre season dominates us.

Spank said...

I look at it this way....shit forgot what i was going to say.

Steve Sax said...

Rick Monday just gave us the great insight that the Dodgers, down by three and with a runner on second, will need to get another person on base here in the bottom of the ninth.

Thank you, Rick.

Steve Sax said...

karina, I'm not grumpy.

Okay, I'm not THAT grumpy.

I need another (full-price) beer.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, balls.

karina said...

well, at least I got to listen to Vinny.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That sucked.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.

Steve Sax said...

At least some of you got bobbleheads!
