Game 72 Thread: June 18 vs Astros, 7p

Rubby De La Rosa (3-0, 3.00) vs. Wandy Rodriguez (4-3, 3.13).

Four losses in a row to start this homestand, the latest off of a simply pathetic Astros team; I can't take it. In fact, I'm getting some r&r outside the confines of SoCal this weekend, and I can't bother my zen state is weekend with such losing ways. Oh, I'm quite certain I will be sneaking looks at my iPhone all night tomorrow during dinner. But for now, I'm going to be putting myself in a state of calm, calm, calm,...

This wet fart of a season rolls on.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WE SUCK

Paul said...

At least Guapo is humping his brains out. That monkey is all heart.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh 5:07

You don't know how close to home your comment was.

@Dusty

Frankie make a boom boom?

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Let's just say it wasn't Frankie and leave it at that.

karen said...

Pulling up a chair, Vin!!

Hello Everybody!

Dusty Baker said...

Wotcherpale'sup, Karina!

Dusty Baker said...

Um, that's not Loney, Vinny. You know one easy way to tell Loney from Blake?

Dusty Baker said...

* Not making fun of Vin, just sayin'.

(Hopes he's not in trouble with Josh)

Dusty Baker said...

Rubby gets out of a minor jam. On to the good half of the 1st inning. Let's get some scores on the doors, boys!

karen said...

Yay Andre! Signs of life in the Dodger line-up!!

Dusty Baker said...

Unable to capitalize. On to the 2nd. Blake's AB was particularly atrocious. We could have sent an orange traffic cone out there to take pitches instead.

Spank said...

Here to entertain,Vinny!

Eps,Y'all.

Spank said...

Rubby and Wandy.

Dusty Baker said...

Vin keeps saying Johnson. And talking about Wallace's thighs.

Dusty Baker said...

Joe Block confirming that Urine's new walk up song is a Rihanna track. How awkward!

karen said...

Oh great. That's all we need is Rhi-Rhi gettin' all up in Matty's head again.

Spank said...

Fuck Thames!

Spank said...

That is a dick move if Urine did that. Kick his ass ,Matty!

MR.F said...

A very tired wotcher, everybody.

Spank said...

Rubby with a single.

MR.F said...

Yeah. We still suck.

karen said...

Barajas out at the plate.

Well shit.

Spank said...

Barajas couldn't score on Gordons hit but at least I got to see violence.

Josh S. said...

The throw got to the plate, I went backpacking across Europe, and when I got back, Barajas was about halfway down from third.

Dusty Baker said...

I just read _War and Peace_. Is Barajas safe yet?

karina said...

epale everyone!

they'll win tonight, thank you

sorry for not being around but my life is crazy busy now

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We Suck 1/3

Dusty Baker said...

Karina, sort that out so you can spend more time trying to cheer us up!

Mr. Customer said...

anything bad happen yet?

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C: Barajas was out at home by about 4 Titanic screenings and someone in or near the Baker household had a wet fart.

I think that's it.

Spank said...

I'd like to thank Urine for his contributions to the dodgers so far this season. You fucking,Mutt!

karina said...

@Dusty sadly, I can't do that. In fact, due to work commitments, I'll be traveling to the middle of nowhere, in the border to Colombia with no phone, let alone Internet for a month, by late July, so it's critical you'll keep your spirits high!

Dusty Baker said...

That's pretty much it.

It's weird - I'm sitting here having a cocktail and cigar on my patio, listening to the game; everywhere else for blocks and blocks around me, power is out for many residents. I guess it's a little obnoxious to have the little twinkly patio lights on, eh?

Dusty Baker said...

Keeping spirits high is my trademark, K.

Oh, wait, those kind of spirits.

Dusty Baker said...

What are you doing, Karina, running drugs?

Spank said...

Slide away from the tag,Moron!

karina said...

@Dusty 8:08 didn't know you had moved here...

hahahaha, no, filmmaking business :)

Spank said...

Karina Escobar

Dusty Baker said...

Nice one, Karina!

Dusty Baker said...

45

karina said...

bottom of the fourth for the Dodgers makes me shake my head

Dusty Baker said...

Innings 1-9 generally make me shake my head these days.

karina said...

c'mon Rubby, throw the unhittable!

Dusty Baker said...

@K

Ahh, so you're getting into porn, not drug running. Good career move.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, throw the unhittable curse.

Spank said...

Why is Rubby wearing a hula hoop?

karina said...

@Dusty 8:17 how about the entire season?

*sighs*

Spank said...

Why does Rubby suck?

Dusty Baker said...

(cries)

Paul said...

In the middle of this shitfest. I am just feeling lucky I am listening to Vinny.

Spank said...

Booooooooooo!

Oh fuck,Forgot i'm a Dodger fan.Hooray!

(cries)

karina said...

Paul is my hero for focusing not on the good, but the great

Mr. Customer said...

*drvies over to the Czar's old place to punch holes in the walls*

Spank said...

Rubbish

Spank said...

Fucking Awesome!!

karina said...

@Mr C why don't make holes in your own walls? I don't think there's enough space in the Czar's house

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho Futiliendo

Dusty Baker said...

WE SUCK/BLOW!!!!

Paul said...

Wow. I have no words.

Spank said...

No Comment

karina said...

*saying as a mantra: it ain't over 'till it's over*

*fetal position*

Dusty Baker said...

Can they have Vinny start commenting on OTHER baseball games being played so we can enjoy him but not have to partake in this shitfest?

karina said...

rancho ardiendo, again?

*cries*

Paul said...

I'd rather have Vinny read my bills right now.

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny could read a Michelle Bachmann speech and I'd still like it.

MR.F said...

This is rather painful.

karina said...

WILD PITCH?

why do I feel like yelling at Mattingly and Honeycutt?

WHY?

karina said...

who got injured?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Neither Mattingly nor Honeycutt threw that pitch.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Pack of Tarjetas hurt.

karen said...

This team keeps coming up with new ways to stink.

Paul said...

Honeycutt has been the pitching coach for too long.

Time to sign Driefort as Pitching Coach.

karina said...

@Dusty

a) that's right but they should have done something with Rubby earlier.

b)I hope it's not related to making him to run beyond his means :(

Mr. Customer said...

christ on a cracker, make it stop.

Fernie V said...

If we were playing softball we would of been making fun of the way Barajas got her.

Fernie V said...

He needs some vagisil and he will be good for tomorrow.

Josh S. said...

So...

How many games over 100 will we lose this season?

Fernie V said...

I am always worried that blake and barajas are going ro get hurt with a swing.

Fernie V said...

How did those mexicans get those seats.

Fernie V said...

I'll take 8 under 100 for 25 bucks.

Steve Sax said...

Were down 5-0? Mother fucker...

Mr. Customer said...

Moment of zen, Sax. Moment od zen.

Dusty Baker said...

When Vinny said "Let's get back to this one" I yelled at the TV "NO!" I don't want to get back to this one. Just keep telling old stories."

Mr. Customer said...

^of

Dusty Baker said...

You may need to switch over to the Diamond Sutra to get through this one, Sax.

Fernie V said...

@sax

U ever fix problem with iPhone closing before loading sosg.

Fernie V said...

I am in Texas and the fox cruel I making fun of the a-list celebrities avoiding Dodger games.

Spank said...

I sprained my left nuthing else on the tube.

Dusty Baker said...

@FV

The only very manual workaround I've found is to hit stop (X) before it fully loads. So let it load about 85% of the way then stop the page load.

Mr. Customer said...

@fernie

it's a safari thing. the ipad and iphone users among us found that iChromy works ok for SoSG.

Fernie V said...

Thanks fellas

karina said...

welcome back, KJ

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Is there an iChromy (or as Sax calls it, Aye Homie) for iPhone?

Spank said...

If iPhone has auto correct,Why does it not help Fernie wif his spelling?

Spank said...

100

karen said...

Show us some magic Matty!

Fernie V said...

I think kemp hit his bison

karina said...

epale sister!

Mr. Customer said...

@db

honestly, i assumed it was cross-platform. i'm not iphone literate.

(stupid fat fingers)

Josh S. said...

Turned off the game a while ago. How did Rod get hurt? The play at the plate?

karina said...

so Barajas left the game with a hurt ankle

*cries*

Fernie V said...

It doesn't work when u need it.

Spank said...

Even moi would have swung at that,Matty. WTF!

Spank said...

You see,Matty? Urine swung at it.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Just researched it. Only for iPad. Like this app but among other things, there's no delete history functionality. Ahem.

That said, I only use iChromy for SoSG. Like that, Sons? I have an entire app just so I can read your site.

Spank said...

Still waiting for Barajas to score,Vinny!

Paul said...

Well I made a very nice Dinner for my dad and we reminisced how the first game he took me to was one of the last for Cey Russell Lopes and Garvey.

Then we tried to avoid this game.

Dusty Baker said...

Philosophical question:

Why can I order a pizza, or Chinese food, but not a burrito? Wouldn't someone make a mint with a carryout burrito business?

Mr. Customer said...

i also use it only for SoSG.

Dusty Baker said...

Sax, you guys need to co-brand with iChromy.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet mother of god we suck. That said, I've still devoted my entire Saturday evening to watching the game whilst sitting her on the sofa (Vinny) wearing one of my favorite Dodger tees.

(sighs)

Mr. Customer said...

despte the suck. i'm still invested in it. i can't let it go just because we're goddamn terrible.

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, Mr C.

Spank said...

I just have nothing better to do.

karen said...

I look forward to these games everyday and about the fifth inning I start to wonder what the hell is wrong with me.

MR.F said...

I'm still watching. Sigh.

karina said...

guys and gals, this is just a bad streak that have lasted the entire season so far, they'll improve at any time now.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

We can only get better. We can't get worse.

That's my pos statement for the day.

Paul said...

I am only watching cause I support Taiwan tourism.

Dusty Baker said...

I just finally saw that Jansen was called back up and Lindblom optioned. Hopefully he's seen enough bus rides and cheap hotels to be motivated to pitch well enough to stay up.

Spank said...

I would say the bad streak has lasted two seasons. But I still have positive thoughts...for next season.

Neeebs said...

Three Tecates down and I check the score. WTF is up now! Do we need paper bags over our heads now? Que terrible.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Feel the mimosa!!!

karen said...

Karina--I just love you and your good, positive thoughts!!:)

Dusty Baker said...

You're going to need more Tecate, Neeebs.

Spank said...

I may become a tecato(heroin hype)by the end of this season.

Fernie V said...

A burger place used to deliver over here, good idea dusty. What kind of burrito u craving

karina said...

@karen *blushes*love you too sista! you should join us at Facebook...

Spank said...

This is a woeful display.

That is my educated comment of the day.

Fernie V said...

Ah shit, I walked the dog and now we are down 7-0.

Josh S. said...

9 hits?

Dusty Baker said...

@FV

Carne asada, rice, cheese, light sour cream, hot as shit salsa.

Fernie V said...

Not throwing in the towel, but I am turning off my notifications on my phone for Dodger updates. I feel like rocky watching the Russian beating a good friend of mine.

Josh S. said...

Sweet hit, Dre.

#thelittlethings

Josh S. said...

DIE, URINE, DIE

karina said...

yay! lead-off single! go Dre!

Spank said...

And of course Urine done ficks shit up.

Spank said...

^Fucks

Dusty Baker said...

(cries like a schoolgirl)

Spank said...

FUCK!

karina said...

and just like that, my joy dissipated...

Fernie V said...

@ dusty

Ordering me one but add some guacamole.

Dusty Baker said...

And just like that, my gin and tonic dissipated.

Instapoll:

Next drink choice:

Gin and tonic
Red wine
Bourbon
Manhattan
Scotch
All of the above

Josh S. said...

This team is like 80% dead weight.

Dusty Baker said...

@FV

Exactly. I accidentally left off the most important ingredient.

Paul said...

Wow Switchfoot is still making crappy music?

karen said...

My mom and I have thought for some time now that Urine is still secretly on gnats payroll.

@Karina 9:36--I really don't go on Facebook very much but I'm there at Karen Morton if anyone wants to Friend me.

Spank said...

@ DB

Yes

Josh S. said...

Why even warm up Elbert?

Fernie V said...

Fuck we suck

Dusty Baker said...

Why even warm up leftover pizza?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Which one? There are multiple instances of that name.

Spank said...

I'll drink to that loss

Steve Sax said...

7-0? Fuck this shit

Dusty Baker said...

I'll drink to that pre-game warmup, the game itself, and the embarrassing loss.

karen said...

Dusty--In my picture I am sitting down, am blonde and wearing a gray hoodie with gray Levis. Let me know if that helps.

Spank said...

You done messed up karen.You're going to a dark,dark place.

Mr. Customer said...

abyssmal.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

That was my guess! :-)

karina said...

the good part is the Jints lost

*cries*

Dusty Baker said...

All is not lost! Great news, Karina!

Also, Return of the King is on.

Spank said...

I have a feeling the familia is getting larger.

karina said...

^Degrassi:The Next Generation, season 8 is on ;)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WE SUCK

Neeebs said...

Number 4 down. We still sucking?

Dusty Baker said...

Doesn't it take about 15 Tecates to catch a buzz, Neeebs?

Step it up, bro!

Fernie V said...

Tecate dollar night at cubbys on Wednesday.

Fernie V said...

Ichromy worked just a little slow

Dusty Baker said...

You up on the iPad tip, Fernie?

karina said...

good night boys and girls, tomorrow will be better for sure...

Neeebs said...

I'm pissing it faster than I can buzz it.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

(cries)

Neeebs said...

But these crazy South Americans are drinking Piscolas. I can't handle that tonight.

Spank said...

The cuervo gold,the fine colombian.

Dusty Baker said...

Now you're talkin, Spank.

Dusty Baker said...

I can drink more wine and stay soberer than all the heathen Hindoos in Asia! YEEE HAW! Gut Blowout! I am a Moray Eel, I am a Komodo Dragon, I am the Killer Whale bereft of its pup! I have a triple backbone, I was sired by the Wolf Man, give me all your Slack!

Spank said...

Return of the King is still on. As for Barajas, The Hobbit will be on DVD by the time he gets to home plate.

Spank said...

Old Foo- Exhausted

Spank said...

I may have said something but I think I forgot. Oh,I remember now. The Dodgers reek of animal waste from the Puppy Palace.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 9:16p: my wife and I agree, a takeout burrito place would be brilliant.
