Game 91 Thread: July 9 vs. Pads, 1p

Rubby De La Rosa (3-4, 4.31) vs. Aaron Harang (7-2, 3.71).

There are certain Dodger fans who will boycott today's game, but would it be too much to ask for the Dodger bats not to join them? The Dodgers are coming off back-to-back shutouts, but yesterday's Frito Latos of the team's offense almost wasted a tenacious effort by Chad Billingsley.

It would be great if the Dodgers could Harang ten off of Aaron, to turn him into a lemon Harang pie. And if they can't against the NL West's second-worst, then Ned Colletti has got to start thinking about Haranging it up.

Will you please stop Haranguing us with this constant Ned-bashing? He's simply Aaron on the side of caution.

It's going to be hot out there today, monkeys. Bring sunscreen or you may get a Harang-a-tan.

@ PPR

1 is for Beanball.

There are no other signs.

Steve Sax said...

Mr Customer, you're a little short

Josh S. said...

BENCH ME? I'LL BENCH YOU!

Paul said...

I am going with the old school Oakley sunglasses in Center.

Jason said...

I'm currently marking my territory on third.

Paul said...

Dusty leading off. Better place a keg on first....and second and third with a G and T at home.

rbnlaw said...

Damn. A guy gets distracted, and he's sent down to AAA (Memories of Kevin Malone).

I will earn my way back into the line-up, you'll see.

You'll all see!

Josh S. said...

NOOOOO BUCK AND SUCK

rbnlaw said...

@Josh. Sounds like a night I spent in Tijuana several years ago.

rbnlaw said...

Rubby gets the high strike!

Are we calling him Rub-E?

Orel said...

Main page updated with boycott pics.

rbnlaw said...

Meh. I call our boycott, "Living in OC and hating the drive in."

I also call it, "Fuck Frank and his $15 parking!" If I go to Anaheim Stadium, I can park just as close for as little as $5, and I can tailgate safely. The drawback is, of course, having to stomach an Angel game.

Josh S. said...

The amount of disgust in Buck's voice when he listed Dioner's BA made him sound like one of us.

Josh S. said...

Seriously, how can you tell people are boycotting? It looks like most games this season.

rbnlaw said...

I was going to say the same thing, Josh.
Saturday day games are sparsely populated unless it's a marquee match up.

The Pods never draw. . .not even in SD.

And I tire of McStupid's haranguing the franchise.

#deadhorsebeaten

Paul said...

I predicted after scoring 6 runs on Thurday we would score 5 this whole series. That might be enough to sweep.

Josh S. said...

This Heath Bell bullshit has to stop.

DelinO said...

Hey all - trying to get Delino II to nap. Apparently Dodger Stadium needs bobbleheads EVERY game to get people there. I think Jason Grabowski's overdue

DelinO said...

Dollar dodger dog day?
Why am I not there?

Jason said...

I'm stuck with Braves - Phillies here. Boooo!

Josh S. said...

Bobbleheads that shoot fireworks=full season sellout.

Josh S. said...

Yes, the NL East standings are particularly relevant to this game.

Mr. Customer said...

Frankly, the NL West standings aren't all that relevant to this game, either.

Steve Sax said...

Fireworks that shoot unwanted Mattingly bobbleheads: sellout number two

Steve Sax said...

Vince Coleman Fireworks Night: missed opportunity for that Mets series

Steve Sax said...

Let's go, Rubster

Steve Sax said...

Down goes Harang to end the fifth-inning threat!

0-0, mid 5

Josh S. said...

Hey everyone, Aaron Harang is throwing a NO-HITTER. Tell your friends!

Josh S. said...

What a pussy. Finish your no-hitter!

Mr. Customer said...

sweet jeebus, the offense is even more impotent than normal.

Josh S. said...

Kemp don't need no hits to be awesome.

Steve Sax said...

Loney IBB? What the?

Steve Sax said...

Now would be a good time for another triple.

Josh S. said...

DIE, ONER!

Mr. Customer said...

That was utterly predictable.

Steve Sax said...

DIONER you suck

But at least I can take joy in the fact that Joe Buck is caught in the hell of having to call this horrific game.

Mr. Customer said...

Might I suggest "Die, Owner!" as an alternative.

Ya know, 'cause it's topical.

Paul said...

We still don't have a fuckin hit.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Ironic: "Turn Me Loose" in background of radio broadcast at the end of the ^ 7...
Loverboy >>> ABC

Paul said...

Buck sounds like I feel.

Steve Sax said...

Joe Buck is delivering this game with the enthusiasm of a corpse.

Ha, ha!

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Rally? What's this?

Paul said...

I feel like a zombie fan right now.

*eats hand with beer in it*

Mr. Customer said...

There is a very real possibility that we could get no-hit and still win.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Great bunt, that.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm a fan of zombies.

Paul said...

Hey Fookie get a hit again.

Steve Sax said...

Andre, show us some all-star love here

Josh S. said...

Time to cut the shit, Dre.

Paul said...

Zombies are the best. This team is the walking dead.

Steve Sax said...

1-1 to Ethier

Steve Sax said...

2-1 to Ethier

Steve Sax said...

3-1 to Ethier

Steve Sax said...

3-2 to Ethier, Andre taking that last pitch

Mr. Customer said...

*sulks*

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

uhm

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Andre

You're giving the Padres a NO-HITTER!

Paul said...

Crap I wanted a four run one hit inning.

Josh S. said...

HATE. THIS.

Horst said...

Seriously,Shoot me.

Please.

Steve Sax said...

All zeroes in the fox broadcast booth too

Paul said...

This goes back to the philosophical question if a No-hitter is thrown and no one is there to see it, is it really a no hitter?

Marla World Peace said...

Joe Buck sounds like shit.

I mean, more so than usual.

DelinO said...

Dodgers - zero hits.
Delino II - zero nap.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

What is the actual ass-in-seat attendance for this crap?

DelinO said...

Joe Buck's finest moment was when Artie Lange went on his show and tore him to shreds.

Paul said...

Well if the Dodgers hit a homerun off Taco Bell that would be fun.

Paul said...

Or when he was introduced to Barry Bonds.

Josh S. said...

Why the fuck would you need a 3D phone?

Marla World Peace said...

The only game I can recall with just one hit was Koufax's perfecto.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

It's Hero Time... to quote Henry Rollins.

Josh S. said...

Speaking of 3D, at a sneak preview of Harry Potter 7 Pt. 2 this morning, we could choose 2D or 3D. Those of us that chose 2D were treated like second class citizens, forced to stand in the sun until all the 3D patrons were seated.

rbnlaw said...

Thanks, Matt!

Marla World Peace said...

My favorite wizard is Shazam.

Josh S. said...

Kemp strikes out on 3 pitches?

rbnlaw said...

Really, you'd think he'd layoff one of those sliders.

Paul said...

That was old school Kemp.

Marla World Peace said...

I did not enjoy that K.

Josh S. said...

Loney walk off.

Book it.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Impatient and swinging away...

DelinO said...

Never see 3D unless it was filmed in 3D. I'd rather stand out in the blazing sun than see crappy 3D.

Without spoiling it, how was the movie?

Is Voldemort really Harry Potter's dad?

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Voldemort is a Yankee.

rbnlaw said...

Wouldn't it be funny if Loney won it here?

DelinO said...

Usually the team with one hit doesn't have the most. sigh. a single tear.

Marla World Peace said...

I've only seen Avatar in 3D. I figure that's as good as it's going to get, so why bother.

Paul said...

I just had a frighting thought a 12 inning no hit loss.

rbnlaw said...

Thanks, James!

Orel said...

Save us, Obi Juan Uribe, you're our only hope.

rbnlaw said...

Don't get me started on this guy.

DelinO said...

Transformers 3 was awful. But the 3D looked great.

Apparently, Michael Bay's never met a woman outside of a high end brothel.

Orel said...

AWWW YEAHHHHH

Marla World Peace said...

Obviously.

DelinO said...

OH MY!!!!!!!

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

omg! Uribe is my favorite!...

rbnlaw said...

No no-no!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DelinO said...

Urinetown

Mr. Customer said...

THANK THE GODS!

Steve Sax said...

Mets and Padres, still the only teams without no-hitters!

Paul said...

A hit!!!!!!

Paul said...

Dinner time.

Mr. Customer said...

I think the casting call for Transformers 3 actually WAS outside of a high-end brothel.

DelinO said...

Just a bit outside

Marla World Peace said...

@DelinO, Mr. C - Stop disparaging high-end brothels.

DelinO said...

Or inside

DelinO said...

I'm not. It's where my parents met :-)

rbnlaw said...

Dinner?

Marla World Peace said...

Obviously.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

OMG

DelinO said...

LIKELY HEROES

Paul said...

Your stache is disturbing Gregerson.

rbnlaw said...

No shit?

Pick the 2 most unlikely heroes.

Mr. Customer said...

Speechless.

Paul said...

Dinner time!!!!

rbnlaw said...

McStupid sounds disgusted. Good.
Fuck that guy.

. . .and Buck. You're both getting paid too much to watch a game and talk.

Fuckers.

Marla World Peace said...

I think we have finally met a team in a sadder state than us.

Paul said...

We make Party!!!

Marla World Peace said...

Either fans need to protest every home game or we need to play the Padres every day.

rbnlaw said...

Hooray for finally beating a team we should beat!
#twins?

Marla World Peace said...

Brian Wilson only wants to fight cancer because it mocked his hand gestures.

Josh S. said...

Does Dioner now have the team lead in walk-offs?

@DelinO: The movie was GREAT. Turns out Voldemort's Harry's SON. Didn't see that coming.

Horst said...

Well fuck me. We Won!

Josh S. said...

Buck called Kemp's tackle "weak form." Yes, because you really want to knock the shit out of your teammate (even if it is Dioner).

Idiot.

rbnlaw said...

Congrats to Derek "seriously, Minka Kelly? WOW!" Jeter for out-hitting the Dodgers and Padres combined today.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Buck needs to stfu, grab a dictionary, and look up "nepotism".

He really critiqued Kemp? What a tool.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Hey, this is out first 3 game win streak ain't it?

Steve Sax said...

THREE IN A ROW, BABY
