Game 107 Thread: July 31 vs. D'backs, 1p

Not pictured: giant can of peanut brittle.

Rubby De La Rosa (4-4, 3.49) vs. Joe Saunders (7-8, 3.63).

The Dodgers are 12-12 in July, so today is their big chance to secure their first winning month of the season. Will they meet this meaningless milestone, or will they fritter away a chance at a modicum of respectability? Last time the Dodgers faced Saunders (all of two weeks ago), they came away with a rare win. But Clayton Kershaw started that game. Today De La Rosa is charged with the responsibility of holding the Snakes under however many RBIs Matt Kemp decides to drive in.

Something very special/funny is happening to the Angels right now.

I'm trying to sit through it but the homer angel broadcasting teams whining is making it difficult.

NicJ said...

Nvm, it's over.

Although when im old I can tell my my grandkids I heard Victor Rojas great call "No more no-no for you!! Haha!!"

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jayson Stark saying Dodgers part of 3-team deal that sends Erik Bedard from Seattle to Boston.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We're getting Federowicz

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUCK WE TRADED TRAYVON DAMMIT

Spank said...

DEE FUCKING GORDON!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

These better be some fucking awesome minor leaguers because this fucking sucks.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MAH HEAD ASPLODE

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Second most-disappointing three-way ever.

Josh S. said...

Did I miss something, or is Taco staying put?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Taco stays in Whale's Vagina.

NicJ said...

Well I guess that means we are definately resigning dre and kemp.


(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

JERRY SANDS IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION

(cries)

@NicJ: I didn't think Angels broadcasting could get worse once they got rid of Rex Hudler, and yet they've somehow managed to suck even more.

el montanero said...

Shit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate the Dodgers.

Paul said...

Really? Even when we suck we are trading away good prospects?!?

Paul said...

Crap by the time the Topes get my woods they will be as depressing as the Dodgers.

Neeebs said...

Did you hear that Trayvon has a chronic bad shoulder that will likely impede his development? Neither did I.

*cries*

Josh S. said...

MLBTR: "Overall, Dodgers' involvement is a bit of a head-scratcher..."

That's our Ned!
Wah-wah-wah-waaaaaaahhhhh.

NicJ said...

It's getting really hard to feel anything positive about this organization.

el montanero said...

Just think, we also have another hellish postseason to look forward to...likely featuring most of the same a-hole teams, and their fans, as last year. *slits wrists*

Paul said...

So NOW Ned loves catchers....

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's like Ned was watching Navarro and Barajas and it suddenly dawned on him: "Shit, these catcher guys are actually important."

Neeebs said...

More like, "shit, these catchers suck. I better do something before I get fired."

NicJ said...

It's a race to see who fires Ned first, McCourt or the new owner.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This cheered me up a bit.

Josh S. said...

I'm OK with these chuckleheads beating us if means they're going to go on a tear and overtake the Gnats.

It probably doesn't, though.

Josh S. said...

CGI APES IN THE STADIUM!

Josh S. said...

EugeniOHMYFUCKINGGODYOUSUCK.

Josh S. said...

Spank needs a 1-2-3 sixth to win.

Josh S. said...

Vin has a real hard time with Cowgill's name.

Josh S. said...

Spank now needs a DP to win.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mr. C wins!

Josh S. said...

BOOOOOOOOOO.

Josh S. said...

^ That was for Navarro, not Mr. C.

Josh S. said...

GOOD THING WE HAVE CATCHING DEPTH NOW HAR HAR HAR XFIP

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I wonder if DePodesta would be willing to return if there's a new owner...

NicJ said...

At this point I would welcome Brad Pitt playing the role of Billy Beane as the new GM.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At this point I'll take Jonah Hill as fake-DePo.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If I get a Kuo badge, I will give everyone in Fantasy Football a free baseball card.

Josh S. said...

Oh spit, I have to get ready for the draft, don't I?

Josh S. said...

Kuo must go.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Still a chance to get that badge!

NicJ said...

I'm just letting the auto draft pick for me.

Josh S. said...

Oh good, the Raffy bobblehead wasn't traded.

Mr. Customer said...

I am the streaking weiner?

Mr. Customer said...

I'm not even surprised by the trade news. Baffled, but not surprised.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, that's that.

Josh S. said...

Is anyone else's feed freaking out? Vin turned into a Dalek!

Dusty Baker said...

Missed most of the game, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

So we traded Trayvon Robinson for some widgets, and we traded Raffy for a minor league outfielder?

*scratches head*

*scratches balls*

Spank said...

Did I win? Dammit!

Fernie V said...

Second worst three-way what was the first, MLASC

Steve Sax said...

post-game thread up

sorry this was late, I was busy

Steve Sax said...

@Fernie V (9:33p): Mr. LA SC thought (s)he was a girl, at the time.
