Game 65 Thread: June 10 @ Rox, 5.40p

Chad Billingsley (5-4, 3.70) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (6-4, 3.19).

Wake the heck up, Dodgers. You're six games under .500 and when an opportunity like last night presents itself--with the offense scoring seven runs in a relatively rare (albeit less rare on his roadtrip) outburst, you've got to close the deal and secure the win with serious pitching. Unlike your pathetic effort last night, that is. We're over a third of the way through the season, and we need to get through June a hell of a lot closer to .500 than we are now.

So wake up, Dodgers (and try and send the Rockies' starter to an early bed. You know what they say: You snooze, Jhoulys.*

(Here's another Wake Up Call for you. I have no idea what is going on in this video, but at least there are a lot of scantily-clad women (and even a swing of a bat!).)

(*) A loooooooong stretch, even by my own lenient standards.

If you've got the Rockies down, don't give them an Jhoulys on life!

Will the Dodgers strike when Jhoulys expect it?

I might need to go to confession for that one, and I'm nowhere near Catholic.

rbnlaw said...

. . .and that video contains one of the worst songs I have ever heard.


And I've heard a lot of songs.

Steve Sax said...

Scantily-clad women, rbnlaw! Focus on those!

rbnlaw said...

But the music made my ears bleed. Once muted the sound and cleaned up the blood, I enjoyed the wimmens.

Some you win; some Jhoulys.

Jason said...

I can never say I've Chacin enough scantily clad women.

rbnlaw said...

Hiyooooooo!

I'd rather watch porn than that crap.

Kemp scratched due to tight hamstring.

World is ending soon.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Time for some thunder down under!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm referring to Oeltjen, of course.

Jason said...

Gordon - SS
Oeltjen - LF
Ethier - RF
Blake - 3B
Loney - 1B
Uribe - 2B
Navarro - C
Gwynn - CF
Billingsley - P

Seriously, with a lineup like that, why not just bat Billingsley 5th?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I say Bills gets the Silver Slugger this year. He leads all pitchers in OPS at .950.

Jason said...

I say: let Bills participate in the Home Run Derby this year.

Spank said...

Plucking my eyebrows,Vinny!

Steve Sax said...

5 through 8 in our lineup have the initials LUNG.

LUNG disease tonight, perhaps?

Steve Sax said...

Spank: what time does your date pick you up tonight?

Spank said...

Epale!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If only Ethier were batting after Loney. Then it would be a tribute to Diamond Leung.

Steve Sax said...

GOEBLUNG! (sounds Swedish)

GO EBLUNG! (still sounds Swedish)

Jason said...

Crap, there are shadows. I'll need to ignore this game for an inning or two until the Earth rotates to a proper baseball orientation.

Steve Sax said...

If Ethier batted after Loney, I might pick up a bat (and take it to Mattingly's head)

Steve Sax said...

If Woody had gone to the police, this would never have happened

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GOBLEUNG

It's a tribute to both Diamond and Will Arnett.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hooray! LAD/COL is the MLB.tv game of the day, so I get to watch it!

Spank said...

stupid

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Now I am not so happy that I can watch this game.

Spank said...

Right now. How's my hair? Later.

karen said...

Epale Everyone!!

No Matty?? I am one sad baseball chick.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh, we're screwed.

karen said...

Soon we will all be reminicsing about when we were only 6 games under .500. :(

Orel said...

3-0 Rox. Game over.

Josh S. said...

Kemp is beyond words at this point. The hell with winning or losing, I just wanna watch The Matt Kemp Show.

Josh S. said...

Wait...what?

Josh S. said...
