Game 83 Thread: July 1 @ Angels, 7p

Hiroki Kuroda (5-8, 3.10) vs. Tyler Chatwood (3-3, 3.06).

It may only be the half-way point of the season, but it's the merciful end to 2011 interleague play, starting with this final series against our "rivals," the Angels. And like Groundhog Day, we've seen this matchup before. Literally, as in last weekend's 6-1 loss.

You remember that game, right? Kuroda got his typical nonexistent run support? Bing! Chatwood shut us down over seven innings of four-hit, one-run ball? Bing, again! As if there was any moment we'd like to replay from this season, the starters' first head-to-head matchup would not be it. But here it comes: A gust of wind. A dog barks. Cue the truck.

Spank won't even utter Loney's name.

Spank said...

Fernando wearing an Angel jacket! I just lost respect for that mutt.

Neeebs said...

Bolivia with a crazy goal.

Wait, this isn't the Copa thread?

Spank said...

I won't utter that fat,left handed Dodger pitcher from the 80's by name anymore either. He is "FB's avatar" now.

Marla World Peace said...

WE SUCK
...

SOON

Spank said...

My grandma can hit the ball farther than the Dodgers 1Bman.

karen said...

What the hell is up with Fernando wearing an Angel jacket? What must he have been thinking? I'm with Spanky, Fernando can kiss my ass.

Spank said...

That wasn't even close.

Orel said...

Fernando played for the Angels. I can forgive the jacket.

Orel said...

Apparently the Angels are wearing yarmulkes tonight.

Spank said...

Sounds like there are some Dodger fans in attendance.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Spank said...

FB's avatar played for two months with California before he got released. Plus he is employed by the Dodgers where he had his success. He fucked up in my book.

Marla World Peace said...

We scored again? Impossible!

Spank said...

Epale,Karina!

Steve Sax said...

Back-to-back two-out singles?! No way!

LA 2, non-LA 0 after 1.5 innings

karina said...

not only that,but the Jr is hitting like the Sr!

Spank said...

We did not give up any runs in the second inning. Unbelievable.

karina said...

Spank, can you enjoy the moment?look at your avatar

Spank said...

I am,karina. I am. Damn,look who's coming up.

karina said...

our first baseman, King James, who's hitting .275...

Marla World Peace said...

Damn you, 1B.

Marla World Peace said...

1B's OPS right now is .666.

Makes since, considering his game has gone to hell.

Spank said...

FUCK THE ANGELS!

Marla World Peace said...

Aaron Miles is a real ballplayer.

(cries)

karina said...

three runs are enough for Hiro

Spank said...

Come on,A.J! A single is all we need,mang.

Marla World Peace said...

Goodnight, my sweet baboos.

karina said...

night, Marla!

karina said...

can someone explain to me what does it mean Peace in Dusty's and Czar's avatars?

Spank said...

@ Karina

An L.A. Laker (Ron Artest) has changed his name to Metta World Peace.The guy is a nut. Marla and Dusty are paying a homage to his name.

karina said...

I'm digging this Gwynn kid tonight

karina said...

thank you Spank! can you tell me why he did that?

Spank said...

Another run!

karina said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO FOR THE BISON

karina said...

so the Bison delivers and it's 4-1...

Spank said...

@ karina

I really don't know why Artest changed it. I remember Marla mentioning the name change and next thing i knew everyone changed their names.haha

karina said...

@Spank hahahahaha! I've missed you guys a lot but work is crazy right now

Josh S. said...

Stuck in a karaoke bar. Someone want to tell me the what what on this game?

Spank said...

@ Josh

Gwynn, clutch two out hits,Gwynn.

karina said...

I think Kuroda is thinking the same as Josh, the only difference is "stuck with the Dodgers"

World B. Dusty said...

On my hotel sofa, Vinny!

World B. Dusty said...

Wotcherpe'sup!

World B. Dusty said...

Spank said...

About time we show some life against these buttheads. #more hits

Spank said...

#more hits

Steve Sax said...

Finally got my ass seated in front of my glorious tv.

Nice buntage, AJ.

Spank said...

Yo,White Chocolate!

Steve Sax said...

4-0?

Runs in every inning so far?

Kuroda must be pinching himself.

Steve Sax said...

Take a goddamn pitch next time, Dee

Steve Sax said...

Those Angels caps are pretty heinous.

Steve Sax said...

Rhymes with "anus"

Steve Sax said...

Break this game open, lil' Gwynn

World B. Dusty said...

Yo Spank!

And, hello Spanky!

Steve Sax said...

Ha ha, I get the yarmulke reference now Orel!

Those caps are bad. The Angels look like they should get a refund from their cleaners.

Steve Sax said...

Prediction: chat wood walks blake

Spank said...

Rancho Beardiendo!

karina said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO FOR LA BARBA

Steve Sax said...

(I guess not if Casey keeps swinging like that)

World B. Dusty said...

Representin from Least Coast tonight. Tomorrow: Nats double header.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, Spank, Karina: hello!

Spank said...

He was SAFE!!

Spank said...

Hello Dusty and Saxy!

Steve Sax said...

I hate those racist metro pcs commercials

Steve Sax said...

Hey Dusty, that's right, you're in the DC for the long weekend. Enjoy!

Steve Sax said...

Giants barely won tonight

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, give me some iPad game suggestions, please

Spank said...

Hank Conger is tripping me out.

karina said...

@Dusty watching a doubleheader at the stadium is heaven in life, enjoy your time!

Spank said...

Chadwood went limp.

Spank said...

I didn't even realize Miles is 3-3.

Steve Sax said...

I have never been to a doubleheader.

Steve Sax said...

Bad swing Trentster

Spank said...

Boooooooo!

Steve Sax said...

Hey, Paul Blart is now Doctor Doolittle!

World B. Dusty said...

Have the iPad propped up against a chair. Mrs Dusty and her sis and I are watching the game on said iPad and enjoying vinny's call. Midnight least coast time but we're hanging in there.

Steve Sax said...

Ah shit, hope Torii is okay.

Steve Sax said...

Lots of Dodger fans there tonight

Steve Sax said...

DelinO and I look like we'll be in the house on July 5.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers 4-0 through six

Spank said...

I could be wrong but I think we've had someone on base every inning so far.

World B. Dusty said...

@ Karina

Double headers are god's little gift to life. If you ever needed a reason to screw around watching grown men trying to swing a piece of wood at a small white round object, this is your chance.

Steve Sax said...

Ah, the dueling "Let's Go, _______" chant

Nice slide AJ given Gordon's weak comebacker

Steve Sax said...

That waterfall looks like it barely has any water in it.

Steve Sax said...

Steal that base, Dee

Steve Sax said...

Even wi the pitchout, Conger's throw is so bad Dee makes it eeeeeeeeasily

Steve Sax said...

Knock him in, Gwynnster

Steve Sax said...

Second walk to Gwynn, and he's also 3-for-3 on the day

Steve Sax said...

Real smart to try and get Gwynn at first, Conger. Now Gordon takes third

Spank said...

Gordon steals third on a pickoff attempt to first.

Steve Sax said...

Knock him in, Beard

Steve Sax said...

Gordon!!!! Nice play!

Spank said...

Exciting!

Angels tag fail.

Steve Sax said...

Ooh, on that replay it looked like they got Gwynn on the tag.

Steve Sax said...

Gwynn's jersey definitely moves on that tag. I think Gwynn should be out.

Steve Sax said...

But I'll take it.

Spank said...

Payback for that force out that looked like Gwynn was safe.

Steve Sax said...

True that, Spank

Steve Sax said...

100

Steve Sax said...

Wow, that would have been a double for sure if it had stayed fair

Mr. Customer said...

Gotta love the double steal.

Steve Sax said...

I just flipped over to the Angels' broadcast, and there were like 20 seconds of silence from the announcers.

Vin is so awesome. No dead space.

Steve Sax said...

Oh Andre, that breaking ball was yours...

Spank said...

Damn,that was a ball Dre.

Steve Sax said...

Hire is definitely tiring

Steve Sax said...

Whoomp, there it is

7 shutout innings for Hiro. nice!

Spank said...

4-4 4 Miles.

Spank said...

Here we go. Live or Die with the bullpen.

Steve Sax said...

MacDougal trying to make sure Kuroda doesn't get the win

Spank said...

Aww Shit. we are going to die. Fucking mcDougal.

Steve Sax said...

Double p,ay ball please

Steve Sax said...

Lucky out, so men at the corners with two out for Wells

I'm still not feeling good.

Steve Sax said...

MacD scares me

Spank said...

*holds breath*

Steve Sax said...

I see dead relievers

Steve Sax said...

MacD is so fucking wild

Steve Sax said...

MacD thinks Wells is nine feet tall

Steve Sax said...

Luckily, Wells sucks.

5-0 LA through eight

Steve Sax said...

Those King Kong aging commercials are a little disturbing

Spank said...

We got out of that mess with no damage. 3 more outs.

Steve Sax said...

Nice to see a Chevy Traverse raining commercial. In LA in July.

Spank said...

How about one dollar beers?!

Steve Sax said...

What? Empty seats at Angels Stadium?

LA Angels fans leave early

Spank said...

Please god,No McDougal.

(cries)

Spank said...

Thank You!

Spank said...

Nice Fucking Play Dee Gordon!

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

Spank said...
