Game 58 Thread: June 3 @ Reds, 4p

Hiroki Kuroda (5-5, 3.50) vs. Bronson Arroyo (3-5. 5.74).

The Dodgers might have gotten shut out on Wednesday, but now they're kicking off their 10-game road trip facing the mullet man himself, Mr. Arroyo. And I predict that Bronson Caves. (Holy WKRP, Batman!)

Goddamn Arroyo - I don't care if karina thinks he's cute. He's been a pain in our ass for several years now and needs a whuppin.

Brian Sabean too.

Mr. Customer said...

Brian Sabean is a l'il bitch.

Steve Sax said...

Yah, I've been debating whether to post on Sabean and his over-zealous defense of Pubes. It was a clean play, unlike when your pitcher took a bat to the head of our catcher. STFU, Sabean.

I do feel bad for Pubes. But I think Sabean's belly-aching is misguided and pathetic.

Dusty Baker said...

Has nothing to do with Pubes. We're all sorry about the injury. But it has everything to do with Sabean and his inappropriate and unsportsmanlike comments and attitude. Should not be tolerated.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I dislike both Bronson Arroyo and Brian Sabean, but for today, my wrath will be directed towards the former, because he got a vote in the Cy Young for doing nothing.

Fuck you, Bronson.

Dusty Baker said...

Allegedly JGar is headed to DL with a shoulder issue, opening a space for Rubby in the starting rotation.

Mr. Customer said...

Intriguing...

Josh S. said...

Oh hey, there's a game today, too? This day is pretty dope.

Neeebs said...

^I haven't had pretty dope since that Mexican red hair back in 78.

Mr. Customer said...

Where the fuck did everyone go?

Josh S. said...

^ Including Raffy.

Jason said...

Just landed in Cincinnati. What did I miss?

Oh, the actual game. DAMMIT!

Mr. Customer said...

Raffy's hurt again? I'm shocked, I tell you!

(lloro)

MR.F said...

WHAT THE WHAT, MATTHEW?@@

Mr. Customer said...

Ah yes, baserunning hubris. I remember you well.

Mr. Customer said...

In other news. Fuck this work noise. It's commute time.

Josh S. said...

We're winning? Why doesn't it feel like it?

Dusty Baker said...

This offensive juggernaut cannot be stopped!

Dusty Baker said...

And it is offensive.

karina said...

epale everyone!

I'm with one eye on Gameday, I'm getting dolled up to go out tonight.

go Dodgers!

karina said...

@Fred's Brim the more I live the more I understand you can't control what you like ;)

Dusty Baker said...

Knock 'em dead, Karina!

Josh S. said...

*sad trombone*

Spank said...

Boooooooooooooo!

Dusty Baker said...

The moment I tuned in, we started sucking.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like this team.

Dusty Baker said...

Josh, hope you're enjoying your birthday. Everyone who hasn't already, wish our man Josh well on his special day!

Spank said...

@ Dusty

Same here. It's like we got backward mojo.

Dusty Baker said...

That's called "juju," Spank. It's some dark, anti-magic.

Spank said...

I forgot about that one Dusty.My brain must have farted while commenting.

Steve Sax said...

So Bronson went six and held us to five hits and one ER. I suppose he didn't cave, after all.

Steve Sax said...

five more outs for the good guys, down by one

Steve Sax said...

andre double, IBB to Kempy... who to PH?

Steve Sax said...

it's all up to Rod Barajas, batting .216

Steve Sax said...

(make that .215)

Barajas is sitting in favor of Dioner, who is batting .200. And is 0-for-3 today.

Steve Sax said...

Barajas, ahead in the count, takes his 2-0 pitch and...flies out.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

That was such a poor AB from Rod. God dammit, 2 men on only down by one...you can't pop up weakly like that on a 2-0 pitch. God dammit.

Jason said...

I finally get to a bar and Aaron fucking Miles is sent up?

DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

(doesn't make party)

Dusty Baker said...

Have a couple of low-alcohol vodka drinks and you'll feel somewhat better, jason.

Jason said...

No longer in Utah, Dusty. From here out, it is full strength Ohio (or northern Kentucky) alcohol for me.

Jason said...

I am strangely annoyed that the Reds' post game host refers to Arroyo as B.

He also looks like the bastard son of John Gotti and Wee Man.

Dusty Baker said...

Angels vs. Yankmes

Discuss.

Paul said...

Dodgers solved their closer problem. Eliminate save opportunities all together!

Steve Sax said...

P G T up.
