Game 75 Thread: June 21 vs. Tigers, 7p

Brad Penny, Max Scherzer.

Chad Billingsley (5-6, 4.65) vs. Max Scherzer (9-2, 4.32).

Ah, interleague baseball. The only chance the Dodgers get to face such AL pitchers as...former Dodger Brad Penny? Former D'back Max Scherzer? Scherzer has faced the Dodgers six times in his career, including four starts, going 1-2 with a 3.14 ERA. He's also tied for the MLB lead with nine wins, so he's used to a lot of run support. Hear that, Chad? Don't be a wild thing tonight.

I approve of no longer having to tolerate Joel Meyers. Otherwise, that's a bummer.

Wild Thing, I think I love you.

NicJ said...

Im hoping this is a one year fix for the lakers broadcasting team until the TW channel starts.

Neither of the new guys are PxP guys.

Its a real bummer to lose Spero.

Josh S. said...

That sucks. Spero has such a great sports voice.

John Ireland? Yeesh.

Steve Sax said...

Since when did GameDay (on the computer or ipad) do nighttime graphics for the baseball diamonds? That's new.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I heard John Ireland on the PxP a couple of times last season.

It was...strange.

Neeebs said...

Bills showed some nice stuff. But too many pitches.

karen said...

Wotcher Everybody!

Twins 8 - Giants 0...It's going to be a good night, y'all!!

Neeebs said...

Bills throws a sharp second inning.

Neeebs said...

Mini rally.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MSTI is doing backflips right now.

Mr. Customer said...

All hail A.J.!

Neeebs said...

Mini Ball

Neeebs said...

Rancho for Bills.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aw, dammit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aw nuts.

Neeebs said...

Big fat zero

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Don Kelly sounds like the name of a ballplayer from the 50s.

Neeebs said...

Trouble. Let's see what Bills is made of.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Balls.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Eh, could've been worse.

Neeebs said...

Got out of it cheap enough. 30 pitches later.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Chad's working his rotund ass off, that's for sure.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Well, I suppose it would be man on second with one out no matter what; whether Loney or Miles is the better runner I can't say.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Where the hell is everyone?

Mr. Customer said...

Present.

Neeebs said...

Channel your inner Tony, tony

karina said...

karina said...

Urine singles! I'll take it! go Blue!

Orel said...

Epale, Karina!

Orel said...

The on-field microphones are hot tonight. Every base hit sounds like a rifle shot.

Fred's Brim said...

What's up with Uribe coming to bat with a Rihanna song?

Fred's Brim said...

and epale, everyone!

Fred's Brim said...

DRE!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hooray for Andre!

Orel said...

Andre!

Neeebs said...

We party with Dre.

Mr. Customer said...

Dre is back?

Fred's Brim said...

That was a bomb. I don't remember the last time I saw one of those

karen said...

That HR was a thing of beauty, Dre!!

Orel said...

FB, according to Tony Jackson, he's doing it as a gag (with Kemp's permission).

Fred's Brim said...

ahh ok. Is that blonde goatee a gag too?

Fred's Brim said...

Matty's making really good contact

Josh S. said...

Checking in from the floor of my kid's room, as I try to get him to sleep.

Woooo, Dre!!!

karen said...

A late Epale! to Sistah and FB!!

Josh S. said...

@FB: No, but it makes me gag.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey! A baseball just landed on my patio and bounced around in my tomato patch. WTF?

#Ethier

Wotcherpale'sup, everybody!

Fred's Brim said...

Bills not making things easy

Fred's Brim said...

Cabrera still battling a hangover tonight?

karina said...

I wanna make clear that positive vibes go a long way!

who's gonna replace me as the resident optimistic?

Orel said...

Replace you? Are you going somewhere?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

No one.

Orel said...

Hola, Dusty!

Dusty Baker said...

Hola, Orel. Sorry I'm late. Hope I'm not in trouble.

karina said...

hmmmmm, I got Alex Avila on my fantasy team...

Dusty Baker said...

Feel the hateHateHATE, Karina!

karina said...

@Orel I'm currently working at a feature film and I'll be going to La Guajira aka middle of nowhere for a month and I'll have lots of shootings at night, too

Orel said...

Drop and give us fifty, Dusty.

Orel said...

Have a great shoot, Karina! We'll miss you. By the time you wrap the Dodgers might have a new owner.

Orel said...

No QS for Chad!

karina said...

hahahaha, I'd love so, Orel

Dusty Baker said...

Uhhh...I can do the dropping part. The fifty? Hmmm...how do I hold my wine glass while doing pushups?

Dusty Baker said...

Karina, you're not doing pornos, are you?

Josh S. said...

Mike Macdougal inherits three runners.

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

Fred's Brim said...

oh lord - please no

i don't want this

Orel said...

McDP!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

UJTD

Josh S. said...

Huh. Nothing, apparently.

Fred's Brim said...

I that that post keeps me out of the running for resident optimist

karen said...

UJTD!! Too bad, Tigers! Ha ha ha

Orel said...

Dusty: balance it on the back of your neck, of course.

Wait, are we talking pushups or porn?

Fred's Brim said...

I like Miles' curls. Was he ever in Air Supply?

Spank said...

@ karina 8:54pm

moi!

Ciao

Steve Sax said...

that Cabrera GIDP was sweet.

karina said...

@Dusty nope! actually, it's illegal to produce porno in this country, you can buy and distribute it, but not produce it.

@Spank promise it!

Steve Sax said...

on the other hand, that tony gwynn k with the bat on his shoulder was pathetic

Fred's Brim said...

What the hell are they playing for Oeltjen? Some kind of terrible Australian house music?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"it's illegal to produce porno in this country"

As opposed to the Valley, where it's strongly encouraged.

Steve Sax said...

@FB 9:10p: I know Miles has had a good run in the last 50 or so games, but let's not get lost in love here.

Orel said...

So that's why Venezuelan porn is so elusive.

Fred's Brim said...

go go go!!!

Orel said...

TrentBI!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Trent!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thunder down under!

Orel said...

Now THAT'S a knife.

Steve Sax said...

nice RBI Trent but stay on yer feet next time

Josh S. said...

Aussie Aussie Aussie!
Oy Oy Oy!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RDeeI!

Josh S. said...

Offense?

karina said...

Oeltjen: Aguilas pride representing!

Fred's Brim said...

You have a 5-run cushion, here, Matty

karina said...

@Orel it exists...

Josh S. said...

Farging iceholes. Keep this lead, dummies.

Dusty Baker said...

When I read Karina's explanation, I thought about Pulp Fiction:

Yeah, it breaks down like this: it's legal to buy it, it's legal to own it and, if you're the proprietor of a porn shop, it's legal to sell it. It's legal to carry it, which doesn't really matter 'cause -- get a load of this -- if the cops stop you, it's illegal for them to search you. Searching you is a right that the cops in Venezuela don't have.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

UJTD II

Fred's Brim said...

The devil is jumpy tonight!

Dusty Baker said...

(jumps up)

Dusty Baker said...

Barajas is going to make it home before this girl finishes GBA.

Fred's Brim said...

Did they shoot the cover for Roxy Music's Country Life album in front of those trees in the Dodger bullpen?

karina said...

@Dusty that was lovely (and funny)

Fred's Brim said...

Why are all the fans leaving now? Do they stay for GBA or TMOTTBG and then split? Why not stay and watch Dre and Matty one more time?

Fred's Brim said...

Good call, Dusty - I was watching that on IFC earlier tonight. It's been probably 15 years since I've seen it

Fred's Brim said...

Did Dre come up a little lame after running out that ball?

Fred's Brim said...

Matty sneaks up further and further on the plate

Fred's Brim said...

Somebody's gonna buzz his tower at some point

Fred's Brim said...

Loney with "Looking for the Perfect Beat"!

Fred's Brim said...

Tigers broadcast is showing Ned Coletti playing Angry Birds on his phone

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with his 19th stolen base

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

One away from 20/20.

Fred's Brim said...

Oh Aaron, you're every woman in the world to me

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

And there's the 20/20.

Fred's Brim said...

and Matty gets #20

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Welcome, Phil!

karina said...

MVP!MVP!MVP!

Fred's Brim said...

ahhh Wolfman!!!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Do they have illegal, underground, cartoon bear porn where you live?

Fred's Brim said...

Here's a Spectcled Bear, walking onto the set

Fred's Brim said...

HCK!

Fred's Brim said...

I didn't realize he was back

Dusty Baker said...

Jee-gaaack! What the hell is that thing, FB?

I'm freaked out by that.

Fred's Brim said...

93/94 on the fastball, still not where he was, but the result looked good. Plus he had that post-pitch hop back

Fred's Brim said...

a naked bear!

Fred's Brim said...

a south american bear, to boot!

karina said...

my eyes are closing...I'll see Kuo doing a great job and I'll have to leave you...

Good Night lovelies!

Fred's Brim said...

Nice inning for HCK - he looked pretty good. I hope he felt good too

karen said...

Good for you, HCK!!

Fred's Brim said...

gnite karina. I will excuse myself as well.

Orel said...

Sleep tight, Karina & FB.

Josh S. said...

Kuo mama!

Dusty Baker said...

Later, Karina!

(cries)

Spank said...

@ Karina

I promise!

*crosses fingers behind back*

Steve Sax said...

"and how do you like that? Hawksworth strikes out the side."

Dusty Baker said...

(makes party with a cartoon bear)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't know how to feel just now.

Dusty Baker said...

I feel slightly drunk right now.

Jason said...

Tuned in in time to catch the 9th. Three things:

1. I didn't realize the game was being played in Miami. I think they would have filled more seats by not playing in front of Marlin fans.

2. I also did not realize that Kershaw taught himself to pitch right handed and stole Hawksworth's jersey. But, I like it.

3. I *am* currently making party.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!
