Game 88 Thread: July 6 vs. Mets, 7p

Hiroki Kuroda (6-9, 2.90) vs. Jon Niese (7-7, 3.72).

I remember partying in a Dodgers suite last night, hanging out with other passionate Dodgers fans, and watching the Dodgers fail to score all game long. But I don't remember much else; it's all a blur. And of course, Kuroda's turn comes up next, all but ensuring his start will reprise another night of offensive futility, wasting what will likely be another great outing (Kuroda sported a 2.12 ERA in June, but didn't earn a single win). Maybe the after-effects of Dodgers Blogger Night 2011 will have worn off by game time, and the Dodgers will find a way to score tonight. But that still doesn't explain my missing tooth.

Mr. Customer said...

Damnation, we need a pitcher with an last name starting with R. This team would be totally appropriate to roll with a "fuck lever" lineup.

MR.F said...

Rosa, Rubby de la.

Isn't that how it works?

Mr. Customer said...

Too bad interleague play passed us by before Trayvon could get called up.

Jason said...

Then we need a catcher with a last name starting with I since "fuck liver" is a totally appropriate lineup for this group to watch. Is Chris Iannetta available?

MR.F said...

We need a set of players whose last name initials can form the words "FUCK FRANK."

rbnlaw said...

We just need a set of players before Kemp and Ethier split when they're free agents.

Luckily, the Dodgers locked up Kershaw and Bills.

And thanks to Mr. C for posting a line-up. One was not posted last night.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and if anyone can get me the information Vin was announcing last night about discounted tickets for tomorrow's game, I'd appreciate it.

StubHub has been weird lately.

Jason said...

It would require going all the way down to rookie ball, but:

Furcal
Uribe
Carroll
Kemp
Franco
Robinson
Akins
Navarro
Kershaw

Horst said...

So this is what it has come to. What a damn shame.

Jason said...

@rbnlaw

Was it the ASG2011 promo code? That was the $5/22/27 sale.

Steve Sax said...

@Jason 5:36p: that's f'ing brilliant

Orel said...

The Dodgers announced today a 48-hour $5 sale on Reserve Level tickets to this Thursday’s game (7:10 p.m. vs. NYM) featuring Andre Ethier Throwback Bobbleheads presented by San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino.

Teammates Kemp, who will start in center field for the National League, and Kershaw have already been selected to the NL All-Star Team and in celebration, the Dodgers are offering $22 Loge Level, $22 All-You-Can-Eat Right Field Pavilion and $27 Field Level seats for Thursday’s bobblehead night.

Dodger fans can partake in the 48-hour sale by visiting dodgers.com/ethier.

rbnlaw said...

Thanks Orel! The Dodger site is well known for hiding what you really want.

rbnlaw said...

And thanks Jason! I thought you typed "SOSG2011" promo.

I had to chuckle at that one.

World B. Dusty said...

At the Yard, Vinny!

Marla World Peace said...

WE SUCK

Jason said...

The SoSG2011 promo gets you one beer at full price.

Josh S. said...

Hrmgrmnnmrm, Vinny.

Marla World Peace said...

I don't know if anyone's mentioned this yet (I've been a tad busy), but this is a great read from KAJ.

Horst said...

Drinking leftover 4th of July booze,Vinny!

Horst said...

Epale!

Why do I get the feeling this is going to be a lonely thread?

World B. Dusty said...

Mmmmmmm.....leftover patriotic booze

World B. Dusty said...

I'll post as long as I get 3g here at the Yard.

World B. Dusty said...

Dud we really get someone tinier, with less power, who weighs less than than Juan Pierre, to play LF?

Horst said...

If I was in the L.A. area I would score the $22 All You Can Eat tickets and personally eat the concessions out of business.

Horst said...

Good play,1B. Can't wait till you do that for Baltimore.

Horst said...

Would you call that play by Hiro a "stab with the glove"?

Horst said...

(cries)

World B. Dusty said...

3 great defensive plays in a row...I'm feeling a little woozy now.

Steve Sax said...

Just cast a shitload of more votes for Andre. 17 HOURS, PEOPLE!

(Is there a limit to the number of votes? I could have sworn that was much more than 50.)

Steve Sax said...

just finished my recap of last night's blogger night, it goes up at 6a tomorrow.

gotta hop peoples

World B. Dusty said...

True Story:

Right field scoreboard just read: Dodgers Welcome Alcohol Beverage Control

Did Sax put them up to that?

Just overheard (swear to god):

Who was Fernando?

Horst said...

If I had a Darth Vader outfit I would wear it every day. I would love walking into the bank with it on.

Paul said...

Seriously I am still stunned I can get into the Ravine on a promotion night less than the cheapest minor league ticket in my town.


Parking at the stadium costs more than the tickets. That is Frank's dream come true.

Horst said...

Go Grizzlies!

(cries)

Horst said...

PGT Up!

Paul said...

When the Topes come to town next month I'll at least get to watch a more exciting team.

Horst said...

We tied?!

World B. Dusty said...

They just advertised Fernando bobble night tix for $5 - reserve level. Can you imagine them having to seriously discount this night?

@Delino

Please come escort out all your trashy Mets fans friends. They are more than just mildly annoying.

karina said...

epale everyone!

have fun there, Dusty!

karina said...

I just got a Bumgarner badge and feel lots dirty :(

Horst said...

@ Dusty

My kind of prices.

Horst said...

Hooray! 2-1 not Dodgers

DelinO said...

Howdy Dusty... I am not my brothers' keepers, alas. We're all sort of like the Mole Men, living underground since Game 7 of the NLCS.

Horst said...

PGT Up! Again.

DelinO said...

Afraid of the light. Nervous of being above ground and over .500

DelinO said...

I'm on double kid duty tonight. Toy Story 2 on for the 60th time. MY two favorite teams on Gameday. My only thrill - a possible badge. (Though the Dog just walked over to kiss the baby - that was kind of cute beyond words)

Paul said...

Furcal with a lead off walk! You won't see that for another 76 years.

DelinO said...

Ah Mets pitching - never content to have a lead

DelinO said...

Pheh

Horst said...

Kemp up with 2 on and no out.

DelinO said...

Damn - there were badges all over this game and I was too late to get any of them

DelinO said...

Oh no... "THE CHICKEN MAN!"

Horst said...

Thank you,1B,for that tap out.

karina said...

this is a very close game, go Blue!

Fernie V said...

What's up with Kuroda, out already.
Just when I was going to give Donny some props a lead off single.

DelinO said...

Yes.... I relinquished control of the TV

DelinO said...

I mean, he relinquished control.
I watch baseballs now.
I happys

DelinO said...

Cliff Clavin fact... Turner's like the king of HBP.

DelinO said...

And apparently the king of swinging at utter shit

DelinO said...

I had a chance at $20 VIP Field level behind home plate seats... but they disappaeared from my grasp

DelinO said...

Ming the Merciless: Execute their hitting coach

Horst said...

Goddamn I hate fucking Ned.

Josh S. said...

Go back to Bikini Bottom, Niese!

Fernie V said...

I blame Ned as well, paying deferred payments, that Fucken Giant has just screwed us with his signings.

Fernie V said...

Just read about Jon Garland, that Stan Conte can't keep anyone healthy. Another butt pirate from the north.

Fernie V said...

Not that there is anything wrong with it.

Josh S. said...

If looks could kill, Velez would be splattered across left field.

DelinO said...

i like the tron theme rip off in the coors light ad

DelinO said...

k rod is one step above a position player closing out a blowout. a one run lead with him is like being tied with any other pitcher

Horst said...

There is your All-Star Right fielder.

DelinO said...

31,000 my ass

DelinO said...

f
nice one, kemp

karina said...

That's right Delino and that's how I feel there's a walk off coming up

Horst said...

THERE IS YOUR ALL-STAR CENTER FIELDER!

Josh S. said...

10 PRINT WE SUCK
20 GO TO 10

DelinO said...

there's your red headed stepchild!

Horst said...

There goes my hopes and dreams

Mr. Customer said...

Ye gods, we are a pitiful baseball team.

DelinO said...

I was talking about K Rod with the blog boys last night. The Angels really turned his arm into dust.

DelinO said...

3.32 ERA does not a closer make

World B. Dusty said...

Epale, Karina!

Yes, I'm having fun here even though we're losing and we suck. Still True Blue.

(obligatory cry)

Josh S. said...

How in the blue fuck is K-Rod only 29?

DelinO said...

oh my. hard to make kemp look silly

Josh S. said...

Nice timing, fatass.

Paul said...

I knew Urine would get meaningless hit. Get Dinner up!

DelinO said...

Close this thing out. I've got garbage to take out

Paul said...

Velez!!

DelinO said...

how come mattingly is not praying like my four bobbleheads?

Horst said...

I have to admit,1Bman never let's me down.

Josh S. said...

Portrait of an SoSG Commenter.

Paul said...

Never swing again Velez. You will screw things up

Josh S. said...

WHERE IS MY DINNER?!

Paul said...

You fucker! What did I say!

Mr. Customer said...

Balls.

Horst said...

We got a Gnat on base and a Gnat batting. Wearing Dodger blue.

DelinO said...

good night room.
good night spoon.
good night cow jumping over the moon.

Josh S. said...

So, did Ned think he could switch out Dee for Velez and hope the casual fan wouldn't notice?

Paul said...

I can't wait till we get Pat Burrell next year!

Horst said...

Oh well,it could have been worse. I could have been out having fun.

(cries)

Fernie V said...

What would of happen if we had kept Deposta and Collins?

Steve Sax said...

post-game thread up

Steve Sax said...
