Game 79 Thread: June 26 vs. Angels, 1p

A rare misstep: Matt Kemp argues after being tossed yesterday. Which means he should be extra rested for today.

Clayton Kershaw (7-3, 3.01) vs. Jered Weaver (9-4, 2.01).

What a weird time. The Dodgers, playing some of their worst baseball in years, are days away from major ownership turmoil. Everything seems uncertain, except this: The Dodgers' best pitcher is going against the Angels' best pitcher today. Who cares that the Angels are going for the series sweep? Except the Angels. They probably care.

Neeebs said...

DB: Hate is such a strong emotion. I reserve that special spite for the Giants.

*wont admit he's a closet Angels fan*

World B. Dusty said...

HATE HATE HATE

Neeebs said...

WWYS

What Would Yoda Say?

World B. Dusty said...

"Angels we do hate."

World B. Dusty said...

Good news from Joe Block:

"Mattingly said #Dodgers RHP Jonathan Broxton felt elbow stiffness playing catch yesterday. His rehab stint will be delayed."

World B. Dusty said...

Where my dawgs at?

World B. Dusty said...

Wow, Steve Lyons, it is so weeeeeeird that people from different places around the world have - get this - different accents! Whooooa!

World B. Dusty said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Spank said...

It's time for Dodger suckage brought to you by the McThieves.

World B. Dusty said...

My 10:01am comments counts as my positive comment for the thread.

World B. Dusty said...

I was at that game Vinny was just talking about where we were no hit but won the game. Also one of the most boring games I've ever been to.

Spank said...

Alohapale!

World B. Dusty said...

It's pretty sad that Broxton is the team's save leader (7) even though we haven't seen him for weeks and weeks.

Spank said...

I've got your muscle milk.

Spank said...

Eh, Boooooooo!

Spank said...

The kid's on fire

Spank said...

I'm going to take a nap.

World B. Dusty said...

This game will be over by 2:30.

World B. Dusty said...

Mr C is a big old turd!


(tried to lure C out of hiding)

World B. Dusty said...

KKKKKKK

World B. Dusty said...

GAAAaaaahhhhhh!!!!

We are just awful.

*keyboardplant*

World B. Dusty said...

Except Kershaw. He is amazing. Even with the leather.

World B. Dusty said...

Yo wake your ass up, Spank.

World B. Dusty said...

Just because it hasn't been said in awhile:

(cries)

World B. Dusty said...

I believe that the law of averages dictates that if we load enough runners up over the course of the game, we are going to score one run at some point.

World B. Dusty said...

Alas, not yet. Thought Urine's shot was gone.

Back to the drawing board. 0-0 after 6.

World B. Dusty said...

The Green Lantern ad behind home plate is just mockery.

World B. Dusty said...

Man, it's lonely in here. I'm going to have to invent an imaginary friend.

Josh S. said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

World B. Dusty said...

Angels up 1-0. That's an insurmountable lead.

World B. Dusty said...

@Josh

Ok, I won't invent an imaginary friend.

World B. Dusty said...

Can we pitch to you every day, Vernon Wells?

World B. Dusty said...

I totally forgot about badges.

World B. Dusty said...

KKKKKKKKK

World B. Dusty said...

Bottom of 7th already. What the hell am I supposed to do the rest of the waking day after the game is over?

World B. Dusty said...

Home run for Jamey Carroll right here. I'm calling it!

World B. Dusty said...

Well shit. MSBs ball made it out of the infield in the air - that counts as a HR for him, doesn't it?

World B. Dusty said...

"Dodgers about ready to put an ad in the paper to get a run" -Vinny

World B. Dusty said...

Kershaw is the most explosive offensive threat today.

World B. Dusty said...

Weak grounder from Gwynn to end the inning coming up. I'm calling it!

Spank said...

^What he said

World B. Dusty said...

I was wrong!!!!

World B. Dusty said...

45

Josh S. said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

World B. Dusty said...

My god was I wrong.

Spank said...

I'd like to think it was my reappearance That made this run possible.Your welcome.

World B. Dusty said...

I'd like to think it was my derogatory comment about Gwynn.

Josh S. said...

I like to think it's that Vernon Wells sucks ass.

World B. Dusty said...

I was just thinking last night about how awful Wells is as I saw his 3-run HR rocket into orbit before my eyes.

World B. Dusty said...

KKKKKKKKKK

Spank said...

Why can't Loney pull a hamstring or sprain an ankle,break a bone? Or whatever?

World B. Dusty said...

Why can't that have happened before that last play where Loney let the ball get away.

Spank said...

FUCK YOU LONEY!

World B. Dusty said...

Vinny with the zoology lesson.

World B. Dusty said...

KKKKKKKKKKK

Though I didn't think Abreu went around for that last strike.

Spank said...

We did not give up a run in the inning after we scored a run. Unbelievable.

World B. Dusty said...

Put Kid K out there one more inning. He can break his record (13).

Josh S. said...

Loney's not going to homer here, is he?

Josh S. said...

Loney just swung at a pitch that was so low, it got singed by the Earth's core.

Spank said...

Loney's playing golf.

#horribleswing

Josh S. said...

HEY DUDE I SAID YOU SUCK, DIDN'T YOU HEAR ME?!!

Spank said...

Crap!

World B. Dusty said...

I told ya.

Fred's Brim said...

Spank said...

There's your Corona,Dusty.

Josh S. said...

Son of a fucking nutcracker. I hate this game!

World B. Dusty said...

Come on, Dinner. One swing.

Fred's Brim said...

World B. Dusty said...

Gordon steals 2nd!

Spank said...

The fucker just flies through the the TV screen.

World B. Dusty said...

I used to have a girlfriend named Dee, Fred's Brim, making your last comment rather funny to me.

World B. Dusty said...

Home run for Jamey Carroll right here. I'm calling it!

World B. Dusty said...

Huge pasta order for Scioscia coming up! I'm calling it.

Spank said...

We gotta score now.If we don't,I'm going postal up in dis bish!

Josh S. said...

This game is giving me the vapors.

World B. Dusty said...

AWFUL SWING, Miles.

Josh S. said...

WHAT ARE YOU SWINGING AT HALF PINT?

Spank said...

Why is Miles swinging at that pitch? Fucking idiot.

World B. Dusty said...

Kid In Play IN THERE!!!!!!

Spank said...

Scioscia needs an oxygen tank at home plate.

World B. Dusty said...

Was he safe or not?

I mean, I'll take it.

World B. Dusty said...

Get Scioscia a pizza, stat!

Spank said...

The ball was there on time but the catcher never tagged SpeeDee.

World B. Dusty said...

That's what I thought, Spanky.

Spank said...

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!

Josh S. said...

FUCK YEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHH

World B. Dusty said...

Ah, the requisite Kemp dry humping Gwynn.

Spank said...

Dry humpimg time!

Fred's Brim said...

yahoo!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Tony Jr sounds like Tony Sr

World B. Dusty said...

My god did I need this win.

World B. Dusty said...

I will be sad, however, if we don't make it over the 100 count in this GT. Come on, people, represent!

Fred's Brim said...

me too, DB.
It's nice to know good things can happen every once in a while

Fred's Brim said...

100? I think we can do that...

World B. Dusty said...

I love reading the Twitters when we win even though we've been playing poorly. Lots of people out there stick it out through thick and thin.

Spank said...

I'm crying tears of joy like a Kitchen Nightmare makeover.

Fred's Brim said...

I can't believe Florida is playing home games in Seattle just so U2 can set up for a show. That's bitch

World B. Dusty said...

That's hilarious, Spank.

World B. Dusty said...

Still on the sofa, Vinny!

PGTUP!
