Game 77 Thread: June 24 vs. Angels, 7p

Rubby De La Rosa (3-1, 4.58) vs. Dan Haren (6-5, 2.96).

Crosstown rivalry! Freeway Series! Let the fireworks begin! The fourth-place Dodgers, eight games under .500 and with a -33 RS/RA differential, take on the third-place Angels, two games under .500 and with a -12 differential. This one's gonna be a barn-burner, folks! With virtually nothing on the line — not even pride (the Dodgers are all out of that) — these two teams will be competing to see who can embarrass themselves less. It's all on the line! And by "it," I mean "nothing"! The battle for Southern California baseball mediocrity begins tonight! Be here or be somewhere else!

Fuck The Angels!

Central Valley Fan said...

I'm going on Sunday and this is the first game all season that I just don't have the tingle and excitement going through me....

Paul said...

Hey, where have you gone?
You used to be the one
That we looked up to
Seemed like nothing
Could break you down
How high was your price?
Was it worth it?
Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway
You're gone
Guess you weren't here from the start
In the end
Its all a question of heart

karen said...

Almost everytime we play the ANAHEIM Angels we lose. It's not that I'm not used to losing this year (cries) but like losing to the gnats, I find losing to Anaheim particulary painful.

Spank said...

My sentiments exactly,Karen.

Spank said...

Ready to kick some Angel ass,Vinny!

karen said...

I'm pulling up a chair, Vinny!!

Spank said...

First batter gets a hit for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the city of Orange.

Spank said...

Nice catch and tag Dee!

Spank said...

how the fuck did Abreu just steal second base? He can barely run

Spank said...

HaHa! Idiots

karen said...

Anaheim runs themselves out of that inning.:)

Josh S. said...

That may have been my favorite moment of the season.

Josh S. said...

Again with the NL West pitchers in interleague.

karen said...

Some Matty magic!!

Spank said...

Gone Matty Gone!

Yeahhh Baby!

Orel said...

That was an eventful first inning.

Orel said...

Aggressive baserunning or just bad?

karen said...

Hot damn, Dinner!

karen said...

More fun baserunning by the Angels! Ha ha you SOB's.

Orel said...

Thames double! Almost a homer!

Orel said...

Apparently Thames pulled a little-used hitting muscle.

Josh S. said...

I thought Thames was just gassed from running to a base he's never visited before.

Josh S. said...

BOOOOOOO

karen said...

Wow!!Isn't this a fun game?! Another Angel cut down on the basepaths!!

Neeebs said...

RA everyone.

Neeebs said...

Don't let this guy off the hook.

Neeebs said...

Three hits, no runs.

Fred's Brim said...

Pump it up!

Fred's Brim said...

Where is this petition and how can I sign it?

Fred's Brim said...

I think I saw Chubb Rock on Men of a Certain Age this week

Fred's Brim said...

stupid red socks

Fred's Brim said...

runrunrunrun!

Fred's Brim said...

OMSB with a double!

Bunt him over, Rubby

Fred's Brim said...

Great bunt, Rubby!

now get him home!!

Fred's Brim said...

Vin: "..getting the bunt down like a poached egg on toast"

Fred's Brim said...

Damn - Dee hits one right at Izturis and he gets OMSB at home

Spank said...

Here FB!

Fred's Brim said...

^ he, meaning Izturis

Urine pisses himself, inning over

Fred's Brim said...

Signed!!!

Fred's Brim said...

"And she is GONE!!!!!"

Fred's Brim said...

I like Uribe in the field, not at the plate

Fred's Brim said...

hows it hangin, Spank? What are you up to tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

haha Vin calling out Mickey Hatcher for dying his hair

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

2-2

Spank said...

Just drinking a beer and watching the game,FB. Not much else.

Spank said...

It looks like I can marry Dusty in New York.

karen said...

Tying run scores. Ah, shit guys...all of the sudden this game isn't so much fun.

Fred's Brim said...

I hope they legalized polygamy too!

Fred's Brim said...

hi karen!
we're OK here - we're getting hits and are gonna get some more runs

Fred's Brim said...

aww crap

i take that back

Spank said...

FUCK!

karen said...

Shit. Now the fun is really gone.

I HATE the Angels.

Spank said...

Rubby would pitch better if he'd take that damn hula hoop off his neck.

Fred's Brim said...

@karen - me too. It makes no sense that they beat us every time. It has to even out at some point

Spank said...

It would take three seasons of sweeps by the Dodgers to even out the records.

(cries)

karen said...

Hi FB! I'm going to focus on what you said...We've got more hits and runs coming our way. I still feel good vibes for the good guys.

Fred's Brim said...

Dre with a rip!

karen said...

Andre's really got the juju going against Dan Haren.

Fred's Brim said...

holy shit - Matty ripped that right into a glove

he's had 10 of those this week

Fred's Brim said...

James is still looking for a perfect beat

karen said...

Damn you, Kendrick. I'm expecting some Aubrey Huff moves from you out there, dude.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy James

you SOB Dre, just run, dammit!

Spank said...

Fuck man. That should have been a run.

Fred's Brim said...

10 goddamn hits, 2 frikkin runs

Fred's Brim said...

Dre scores? DRE SCORES!

karen said...

King James with his second hit. Somewhere Karina is smiling.

Spank said...

Gotta a run back.

Spank said...

My last comment is jacked up.

karen said...

What the hell was Mathis thinking going to first??

Fred's Brim said...

gotta run back to the liquor store?

Spank said...

@ karen

Johnny Mathis?

Spank said...

Here we go. Let's give up some more runs.

Fred's Brim said...

so stupid
goddamn angels

Spank said...

At least it was only a solo homerun? !

Spank said...

Why the fuck is Rubby still pitching

NicJ said...

It is a little disheartening how our top prospects come up and suck ass.

karen said...

I know we usually reserve our HATE vibes for the hated gnats but maybe it's time to unleash our collective killKillKILL vibes out on these assholes from Anaheim.

Fred's Brim said...

@karen: they can go straight to hell

Fred's Brim said...

It would be nice if we could get Casey going in July and trade him at the deadline

Fred's Brim said...

Dee should do pushups for every popup he hits

Fred's Brim said...

DO SOMETHING, URINE!

Spank said...

Vinny calling out Urine. I love it!

Fred's Brim said...

Nice hustle, Casey

NOW GET A HIT, YOU WORTHLESS PUDDLE!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Of course not

Vin is calling him out

Spank said...

I'm digging your hate,Karen.

Die,Angels!

dieDieDIE

Josh S. said...

Epale again, y'all. This game could be going better.

Fred's Brim said...

Mac the Nail in our Coffin

Fred's Brim said...

Yo Josh!

Fred's Brim said...

That "50" emblem on the side of the Angels hats is dumb. It looks like mid-week giveaway item. I bet there is a Hess logo on the back of it

Fred's Brim said...

Mac with a nice inning!

Which means Mattingly will leave him in for the 8th and he will give up 2 more runs

Josh S. said...

@Nic 9:11

Yeah, but they all got called up ahead of schedule and were essentially asked to carry the team in various ways.

karen said...

Howdy, Josh! Join us in our powerful HATE juju!

hateHateHATE the Anaheim Angels

Fred's Brim said...

Turkeys don't make great tattoo artists...

tasty, and I don't mean the burger

Spank said...

100!

Fred's Brim said...

Padres whooping the Braves 11-2

Spank said...

Goddamn Kowie

Fred's Brim said...

dammitalltohell

Fuck you, Howie, stupid-name-having-mofo

Spank said...

I hate this part of the game where it looks bleak until the ninth inning when we get the bases loaded and Dinner comes up and flies out.

Fred's Brim said...

HCK - I really hope he's well again

Fred's Brim said...

Shoulda caught that

Spank said...

You suck HCK if can't strike this fuck out with the dumb last name.

Fred's Brim said...

Oh sweet jesus
I can't stand this team

MR.F said...

Well, that was embarrassing.

Spank said...

Well fuck me. SHIT!

Orel said...

How are we losing this game?

Josh S. said...

Welp, time to watch Burn Notice on the ol' DVR.

Orel said...

Siddown!

NicJ said...

Sands hit two HR's today in AAA. Maybe he gets called back up for Thames.

Robinson is tearing it up too.

karen said...

How is it that the Angels beat up on us so often? I guess the fact that they are not a very immpressive team speaks volumns to just how sucky we are.

(gets teary eyed at the thought)

Spank said...

It's fucking embarassing that they still play DSB in the middle of the eighth. How about some Van Halen or something L.A.

Marla World Peace said...

WE SUCK.

Marla World Peace said...

God I hate this team.

NicJ said...

I wonder when Colletti's job starts to come into question.

probably one of the first orders of business once new ownership is brought in.

Marla World Peace said...

Hurry up and lose, you jerks.

Fred's Brim said...

Take note, assholes. That's how you get a run in. It doesn't have to look pretty, a bases clearing double or whatever. Just get the guy home from third with less than two outs

Paul said...

Hey, where have you gone?
You used to be the one
That we looked up to
Seemed like nothing
Could break you down
How high was your price?
Was it worth it?
Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway
You're gone
Guess you weren't here from the start
In the end
Its all a question of heart

Josh S. said...

If this somehow comes down to Dinner as the winning run again, I'm going to break something.

Marla World Peace said...

Magic Johnson thinks we should just blow this team up. Literally.

Magic has been very bitter lately.

Fred's Brim said...

that was fun

Fred's Brim said...

gnite all
go to hell, Angels

Josh S. said...

They hurried up and lost.

karen said...

How appropriate that Urine make the last out.

Marla World Peace said...

Hey, I got a Dan Haren badge.

karen said...

Goodnight, FB!!

Spank said...

I would have nothing to do with these charities knowing that the dough is going to the McThieves.

Orel said...

PGT up.

karen said...

Spanky--I thought the same thing earlier in the game...I wonder if Frank dips into the Think Cure funds to support his lifestyle. To bad that he and his theiving ways are associated with such a good cause.

Spank said...

@ Karen

It has to be crossing everyone's mind. I saw the Think Cure logo on the field and the first thing I thought was Frank and Jamie all greedy, having a hell off a time with the cash. Even if they did not touch the Think Cure money,it makes you think,maybe they did.
