Game 63 Thread: June 8 @ Phillies, 4p

Hiroki Kuroda (5-6, 3.46) vs. Cole Hamels (7-2, 2.83).

The Dodgers couldn't overcome Cliffly, but got to Ohswalt for the win. All that stands between them and a fourth straight series win is Whole Camels. But it might be easier for a whole camel to go through the eye of the tiger than half a camel to...wait, wait? That dog is wearing a Phillies jersey and is cowering next to what appear to be a misshapen golf ball and a hollow cigar. Makes perfect sense.

I said cranky Orel, not incoherent Orel!

MR.F said...

Wotcher, everybody!

I went to a real yoga class for the first time today (previously I went to an Intro to Yoga 6-week series). I was the only dude there. It was kinda weird.

Neeebs said...

@Mr. F:

Only dude is good. But, don't fart.

MeanieBreanie said...

How's your downward dog? It's Orel's favorite move ;~))xx

Orel said...

Heyo!

MR.F said...

Yeah, I wasn't complaining...

Mr. Customer said...

Buon giorno, ragazzi! Dare we dream to take the series from the accursed Phiwwys?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I dare.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't keep up with the Scooby Doo threads.

Orel said...

Fresh news on the main page.

Jason said...

Not for nothing, but the last letter of each batter gives us Nerpessla which sounds like a fantastic vacation destination in the south Pacific.

Jason said...

Of course, that is Alssepern backwards which is probably some type of medication for hair loss.

Steve Sax said...

@Jason, OMD was very fond of the Nerpessla girls.

Steve Sax said...

Orel, where the hell did you find that Phillies dog and cigar item? Are you antiquing again?

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 3-1 on the Nats in the bottom of the eighth (in SF)

Jason said...

I hear Nerpessla fathered AC (both the Son and the electrical current).

Jason said...

I think Phillies dog/cigar/pile of crap is actually a cake.

Paul said...

On the BART heading into the belly of the beast. Think I'll find a bar with the Dodger game on?

Paul said...

Uh oh goIng to catch masses right after the Giants game. This has to be one of my cantos in the inferno.

Paul said...

Before I go underwater. Fuck the Phils!

Mr. Customer said...

Use protection, Paul!

Steve Sax said...

I just took a look at the sidebar and realized that DelinO has not seen the Dodgers score a run all year long

Paul said...

@Mr. C

Parli Italiano?

Paul said...

I am illiterate in three languages!

Mr. Customer said...

Si! Mi piace parlare molte lingue per evitare di comprensione.

Mr. Customer said...

Se si può capire, mi passa alla tedesca...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What's your problem, Grace? Making too much money?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

STOP SAYING ETHIER SHOULD GET A GOLD GLOVE, GODDAMMIT.

Jason said...

The guy sitting behind home plate is wearing a t-shirt that has been driving me nuts. I finally figured out what it means..

Mr. Customer said...

Well, his defense isn't as bad as it was last year, but it ain't world-class, that's for sure.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There's nothing I hate more than a semi-popular sitcom mimicking my favorite eatery's logo without just compensation.

Jason said...

Strange, there is nothing I hate more than a semi-popular eatery's logo mimicking my favorite sitcom without just compensation.

Fuck you, Victorino!

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, that picture with the Phiwwies jersey is an insult to the entire pug race!

Mr. Customer said...

Is is almost entirely unlike yesterday's game.

Jason said...

Hiro showing some nice D

Jason said...

Collins is obsessed with players' weight today. It is really getting creepy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

God, how I wish Andre was a gold glover.

Mr. Customer said...

I do not care for Collins.

Steve Sax said...

Blake filling in for Loney at first just fine (0-for-2)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was not good.

Steve Sax said...

89 cent dogs at wienerschnitzel

Steve Sax said...

Oh shit, I have a bad feeling about this

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Opposite end of the spectrum there, Hiro.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aim for his head, Barajas!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is not going well.

Alex said...

lets get the damn out already!

Fred's Brim said...

this is all my fault - i just tuned in for the triple

Alex said...

WHEW!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Holy shit, that was a close one.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck, that's game.

Mr. Customer said...

Balls.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aw crap, it's Mike Mac.

Fred's Brim said...

well that was weird

Fred's Brim said...

ahh Philadelphia, a city whose most famous sports hero is a fictional movie character

Fred's Brim said...

damn umps

Fred's Brim said...

Paul Rodriguez is grossly skinny these days

Mr. Customer said...

Goddamn Rooeeze

Fred's Brim said...

stupid ump - that was the same as the first 2 pitches to Ruiz

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Mac

Mr. Customer said...

Well, if we score zero runs, we weren't gonna win anyway. So let's get on that.

Fred's Brim said...

goddamn MLB.tv shows that idiotic Norelco ad with Nick Swisher and Jonathan Paplebon after every half inning. Oh how I wish electric razors could cut jugulars.

Fred's Brim said...

go Dre go!

NOW GET HIM HOME!

Mr. Customer said...

Lefty-hitting-Dre? I'll take that.

Fred's Brim said...

Urine, you clown

Fred's Brim said...

So what you're saying, Steve, is that the throw is very important to throwing out a runner?

Mr. Customer said...

@FB

I'm surprised that a super-massive black hole of douche wasn't formed just by having them in proximity to one another.

Fred's Brim said...

GET HIM HOME, MARRRRRRCUS

Paul said...

At Mayes Oyster house enjoying a anchosteam. No one wants to see the Dodgers. Regulated to Hockey.

Fred's Brim said...

stop overswinging

Fred's Brim said...

that is terrible

I blame you most, Urine

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Blerg.

Mr. Customer said...

Son of a hur. Will somebody please be competent?!

Fred's Brim said...

Shuttup, Lyons. Matt stealing right now is not as important as Rod somehow getting a hit

Fred's Brim said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We suck.

Jason said...

Boooorajas!

Fred's Brim said...

Do your job, you assholes! One of you has to be able to hit a fly ball somewhere

Mr. Customer said...

Bottom of the order needs to go to their room and think about what they've done.

Fred's Brim said...

And then we lock the door and brick it up?

Mr. Customer said...

Do ANYTHING, dammit!

(cries)

Paul said...

I am guessing we didn't score.

Round Hendricks and tonic on me!

What kind of sf bar doesn't have Junipero.


Blerg.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm taking the cask of amontillado with me, though. It may come in handy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Le fuck.

Jason said...

@Paul

They need room for extra bottles of Chardonnay.

Fred's Brim said...

crapcrapcrap

Paul said...

I needed to take Mr. C on this busIness trip as my cconsultant.

Jason said...

I'm enjoying the police siren sound in the background of the TV feed. You know you're in Philly when...

Paul said...

Great now hearing people bragging about sell outs at PAC bell.

Find a happy place.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That siren is probably just some cops trying to get DelinO off a light pole.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

There's a very Hunter S. Thompson vibe to your proposal.

I accept!

Spank said...

Stay gold,Pony Boy. Stay gold.

Mr. Customer said...

Also...

FUCK YOU VICTORINO!

Paul said...

In my mind I have just yelled "Giants fuckin suck". But in reality I am not done with my Hendricks.

Fred's Brim said...

aww cmon let him hit

Fred's Brim said...

If you are playing for a home run, bat Bills, not Loney

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You suck, Loney.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Beardo!

Paul said...

From gameday we have a man on and James up.


*cries*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Okay, two on, two out for Andre.

Fred's Brim said...

nice, Casey!
Cmon, Dreo!

Paul said...

Come on Dre!

Paul said...

Jeter chokes!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You don't have to be a hero, Andre. Work the walk and let Matt work his magic.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

BLEERRRRRRRG

Fred's Brim said...

I love this team

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why was I so foolish as to think we could win? WHYYYYYYYYY?

Paul said...

Booooo!

Paul said...

@Mr. C

Your first mission: hang out in the tenderloin for the day and report back.

Paul said...

9th inning. The all important roster spot Thames will save us.

Fred's Brim said...

punkass ump

Fred's Brim said...

Is it possible to clone Matt Kemp? We should do that if we can. Somebody should look into that

Fred's Brim said...

What the reverse of cloning?
We should do that to Urine

Paul said...

I always laugh when Dinner is listed as a pinch hitter.

Fred's Brim said...

BORRRRRRINGGGGG!

Jason said...

Insult to injury: I got an A-Rod badge today.

DAMMIT!

Paul said...

Thames is has so much pop. Navarro had to pinch hit for him. Why? Just let him swing.

Steve Sax said...

Well, that was reasonably depressing.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.
