Game 67 Thread: June 12 @ Rockies, 12n

There are no more in the back, Ubaldo!

Rubby De La Rosa (2-0, 1.80) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (1-6, 4.73).

This should be a pitching adventure. Rubby, fresh off his walkalicious start in Philly, has never pitched in the thin air of Denver. Ubaldo, whose sole victory this season came against...wait for it...the Dodgers, struggles in said thin air. He has a 7.67 ERA and a WHIP of 1.832 at Coors this year. The Dodgers and Rockies have combined for 45 runs over the first three games of this series. Expect more balls to fly as the Dodgers look to salvage the split.

I have a feeling I'm going to be hitting the Rubby alcohol during this one.

Paul said...

Your all clear Dodgers! Let's split this trip and head home for 12 games!

Maybe it is the coffee talkin but I am feelin a 10-2 homestand.

Paul said...

And two home off days during this next stand. Time to get right and get Frank out.

Dusty Baker said...

It's gotta be the coffee, Paul.

Steve Sax said...

Just called Orel and woke him up just so i could understand the GT picture.

Ohhhhh.

Steve Sax said...

We are all up and at 'em!

Let's hope the Dodgers are too!

Paul said...

@Dusty.

Well this is the gourmet shit.

Paul said...

No freeze dried taster's choice in this casa.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

I replaced your gourmet shit with Taster's Choice!

Steve Sax said...

I'm drinking coffee from Harrod's that I smuggled back ony last trip to London. Highbrow fare this morning!

Dusty Baker said...

Does one have to smuggle coffee from London? I didn't know there were any restrictions. Unless there's something else in the coffee.

Dusty Baker said...

Rushing to get grilling supplies before the game, Vinny!

Josh S. said...

Dusty Baker said...

Been waiting all morning for this:

Dusty Baker said...

Making Mini Sirloin Burgers today in honor of the tremendous effort put forth by our tiny team yesterday. Mrs Dusty found some tiny buns to use.

Dusty Baker said...

Where is everyone? (cries)

Josh S. said...

I'm over here.

Dusty Baker said...

Rubby my magic lamp and wishing for more strikes from De La Rosa.

Dusty Baker said...

(Waves at Josh)

Josh S. said...

Well, that frees up my afternoon.

Dusty Baker said...

Is BP over yet so we can get this game started?

Dusty Baker said...

I was just thinking the same thing. Now I can fiddle around with the grill, water the tomatoes, press the mini patties, etc. And not be too terribly bothered with missing anything in the game.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck I was posting in the wrong thread.

Loney and Urine single with one out, but... (preparing)

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: have fun pressing the mini-patties

Steve Sax said...

Shit,you can't turn a DP fast enough to catch Barajas? You suck, Rox

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Actually I'm going to have my sous chefs work on that aspect. I'm going to do the manly stuff like lighting the fire andnchopping shit.

Josh S. said...

Rubby?

Josh S. said...

LONEY!!!!

(But don't think I didn't notice you swung at the first pitch.)

Josh S. said...

If James Loney hits a grand slam and no one sees it, did it happen?

Josh S. said...

Holy shit, dudes.

Josh S. said...

Rubby better be up to pitching a complete game.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

go Dodgers!go King James!

karina said...

I can't stay but I wanna say they'll win this game :)

ps didn't habg around here because we had a 26-hour power outage :(

Josh S. said...

99.6 MPH!!!

Josh S. said...

Joe Block said 100. I'll round up too.

karina said...

Bison HR!Barajas dealing! go Blue! :)

Josh S. said...

Dusty's gonna have to move up to wet-humping Kemp.

Jason said...

@Josh 1:23

Rounding up is the American way. I'm pretty sure it is in the Constitution.

Jason said...

Oh, and afternoon everyone! I'm not the only one that was up drinking all night, right?

karina said...

^green with envy

Jason said...

Things I'm enjoying about this telecast:

* Kershaw wearing those ridiculous flip-up shades in the dugout
* Vin's ongoing man-crush on Carlos Gonzalez
* The fact that I can't fathom the size of Matt Kemp's next contract. 8 years, 1 bajillion dollars?

Jason said...

Rex Brothers? Does he double as an auto repair and tow garage?

Jason said...

45

Where did everyone go?

*sniffs self*

Josh S. said...

Back. Had to go out for a bit.

Steiner and Monday went into detail they normally save for Mike Stanton's musculature when they described Rubby's finger injury.

Josh S. said...

Midget Militia!

Jason said...

Welcome back, Josh. I was about to add "not having to listen to Rick and Charlie talk about Rubby's finger" to my list of things I like about today's telecast, but I just lost the mobile MLB.tv feed.


DAMMIT!

Steve Sax said...

Troncoso, you suck

9-5 Dodgers

Jason said...

At least Vin gets an extra moment with his man-crush.

Dusty Baker said...

Pinche CarGo. I've had enough of his shit. Kneecap this bitch.

Josh S. said...

Tron de-rezzing before our eyes.

Dusty Baker said...

I like the "Josh 1:23" - like it's scripture. Which, if Josh says it, I pretty much consider it scripture.

Josh S. said...

This is the most annoying series of the year BY FAR.

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit, Troncoso, you fucking suck donkey dicks. Get the fuck off my team already. You lose!

karina said...

<3 CarGo!

karina said...

there it goes Tron's scoreless innings streak

Dusty Baker said...

I'm glad there are fewer than 3 CarGos.

Josh S. said...

GAAAAAHHH MACDOUGAL DAMMIT I HATE YOUUUUUU.

Dusty Baker said...

We should draft this guy:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110611/ap_on_re_as/as_philippines_shortest_man_2

Jason said...

And with that bit of sucky pitching, I'm off to see Super 8.

Josh S. said...

OK, I hate you a little less now.

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

I prefer the sucky pitching over schmaltzy Spielberg crap.

Fred's Brim said...

Oh Tronny - I like you but I am done with you. You haven't been good in a couple of years and I wonder if that small window of success wasn't just smoke and mirrors. That slow, flat fastball isn't fooling anybody anymore, even me

Josh S. said...

Oh, Betancourt. This asshole takes an hour between pitches.

Josh S. said...

Did I spy Broxton in the pen? I wasn't sure if he was traveling with the team.

Josh S. said...

Imagine if someone taught Uribe how to swing.

Josh S. said...

Urine did something!

Dusty Baker said...

How can you miss Broxton?!?

Heh, yeah, he was there. I thought he was rehabbing somewhere else, too.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB 9:01am I once saw a bum in the subway enjoying a rubbing alcohol, Hawaiian Punch cocktail. I was impressed.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Was it Johnny Ryall?

Fred's Brim said...

@Jason 1:54pm you have been on quite a run lately!

Fred's Brim said...

I knew a 1-2-3 inning wasn't possible

Fred's Brim said...

@DB it's very possible

Dusty Baker said...

So Plaschke wrote an article about how easy it is to like the Heat?

My god, I loathe this man.

Dusty Baker said...

Ok, Brox, shut 'em down.

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

May as well start now: Fuck you, Dinger!

Fred's Brim said...

Ok, Hawx, shut 'em down.

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

whew

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, kid, one more...

Dusty Baker said...

Double whew.

Dusty Baker said...

Throw at Dinger!

Throw at that little girl getting Dinger's autograph, too!

Fred's Brim said...

Colorado needs to check the settings on the humidifier. I think the janitor bumped the dial when he was cleaning the other day

Fred's Brim said...

Is that Dinger or Dingerette? The bedazzled crown is a little disturbing

Dusty Baker said...

I've got an idea: Let's not give their power hitters anything meaty that they can hit out of the park. Just sayin'.

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty in Law tells me that there is only one Dinger, no Dingerette.

But, if you have to ask...

Dusty Baker said...

I don't want a fuckin Chris Denorfia badge.

Fred's Brim said...

Elbert-time. What's the over-under on walks? 2-2.5?

Josh S. said...

You know what would be nice right about now?

A fucking closer.

Fred's Brim said...

OK good - I can bag on Dinger without being sexist

Fred's Brim said...

0-2 - get him the fuck out! Losing him is now unacceptable

Dusty Baker said...

@Fb - I there was a Dingeretee, you could still bag on her without being sexist. You just couldn't call her toots and ask her to do your dishes and shit.

Fred's Brim said...

wow!

Dusty Baker said...

TRIPLE WHEW.

Fred's Brim said...

I'll take it! Now let's get out of there before they make us play another inning

Dusty Baker said...

Cincy, Rox, Phiwwy road trip: 5-5

Not awful, folks.

Fred's Brim said...

Not bad at all. Get our pitchers back to the friendly, expansive confines, keep hitting going, at least a little

Dusty Baker said...

Rubby my head trying to figure out how we got out of these last two games with wins.

Paul said...

10-2 homestand or mine name isn't Guadalupe.


Make party!

Josh S. said...

Hey Dusty, remember when I said back at the Ravine that the only thing good about this upcoming road trip was that it was at three hitter friendly parks?

61 runs scored, and about a bazillion hits.

Paul said...

Pay Kemp now!! Give him one of your fuckin houses frank.

Clear the liens first.

Dusty Baker said...

What Josh just said is absolutely true. We air cc'd Karina for that to count as a positive comment.

Spank said...

Booooooooo! Oh Shit! We Won!
