Game 12 Thread: April 18 @ Brewers, 5p

Chris Capuano (1-0, 5.40) vs. Zack Greinke (1-1, 6.75).

Capster hasn't been the hallmark of longevity this year for the Dodgers. In his first inning, he didn't escape the fifth inning in San Diego, forcing the Dodgers into extra-inning heroics to win the game. In his second outing, Capster lasted 5 1/3 innings--two outs more than his first start--giving up 2 ER and dropping his ERA from 7.71 to 5.40. With fellow new starter Aaron Harang punching out a career high 13 last week, could Capster match his own career high with 12 Ks tonight (he beat the Indians' CC Sabathia that day)? Not if Chris can't get through the fourth inning, that's for sure; returning to Miller Park to face his former teammates, Capster better not play the klutz.

And as we know, the Dodgers have not won a single game all year outside of California.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee is pulling out all the stops to make sure that the Brewers get another win today. Not only are they starting potential free-agent-to-be Greinke; they're also offering a five-county promotion: Residents of Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha, Racine and Milwaukee Counties can purchase half-price tickets for all reserved seats except the Miller Lite Beerpen, All-Inclusive areas and the $1 Uecker Seats (subject to availability). Roll out the barrel (or I'll polka out your eyes)!

UPDATE 5:22p: Hey look, MLB.com GameDay now has "scout", which will tell you insightful things like this!

No shit, scout! (Kemp proceeded to single Ellis in to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.)

Hope to Dodgers don't lose. That would be the wurst.

Steve Sax said...

+1

Steve Sax said...

Pirates beat the Snakes 2-1

NicJ said...

Say what you will about LA having bad fans but I don't ever remember twitter blowing up with racist remarks about Kuroda when he had a bad start.

also, apparently many new yorkers think his name is Hideki Kuroda and he is Chinese.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dusty Baker has a tiny head!

Wait, what?

Spank said...

Is this game live,tape delayed or Memorex?

Spank said...

Collins and Lyons. Dagnabbit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You were expecting Phil Rizzuto?

Orel said...

Mellis triple!

Orel said...

Kemp RBI! 1-0 Dodgers!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FYFST

Steve Sax said...

UPDATED post with real-time MLB.com GameDay idiocy

Orel said...

Nice 1st by Capuano.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Remind me never to say something obvious in front of Sax.

Spank said...

I'm expecting Jerry Coleman to suck balls.

Orel said...

TGJ guns down Ramirez at 2nd!

Alex said...

SNIPER

Orel said...

Right off Ethier's glove for a double....

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's our gold glove!

Orel said...

Tie game.

Josh S. said...

Fack.

Spank said...

I hate that shit when we give up a run then get an easy out right after to end the inning.

BOOOOOO!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, Josh is back!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Both pitchers will be leading off the third.

Spank said...

This is the first time I've ever seen a Miller High Life banner ad behind home plate. Cc: rbnlaw

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Too many damn doubles.

NicJ said...

I don't know why but I just really don't like Capuano.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That wasn't so bad.

Spank said...

I call a Loney homer here.

Spank said...

heh

Hideo Nomo said...

I let my guard down for one little minute, and the undesirables sneak back in.

Hideo Nomo said...

I really need to do a post about how bad the Dodgers radio pre-game is since moving to AM570.

Spank said...

Hairston scores. (BOOO!)

2-1 Doyers.

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, we finally know the scale of the Drysdale/Wills bobblehead.

Fred's Brim said...

Did the organist really play the Gilligan's Island theme when Dee was up?

Fred's Brim said...

and epale, yall

Orel said...

Epale, FB!

Greinke double?

Fred's Brim said...

And Weeks walks

Spank said...

I didn't catch the Gilligan song. I was listening to Richard Cheese.

Spank said...

Come on Cap.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, we're winning!

Wait, what's this?

Fred's Brim said...

he's much better than Collins

Spank said...

My heart skipped a beat on that fly out.

Fred's Brim said...

Collins, the guy who asked Steve Lyons last night if a catcher uses the same grip on the baseball that a pitcher does

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Cap

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let's hope Cap can last the sixth.

Hideo Nomo said...

NPUT with a screencap of the bobblehead commercial.

Hideo Nomo said...

Y WE NO CAN KNOCK OUT STARTERZ?

Spank said...

NOOOOOOOO!

NicJ said...

Maybe that's why I don't like him.

Fred's Brim said...

damndamndamn

Spank said...

Ramirez fucking killed that ball.

Paul said...

Close game headed into the late innings on the road. I gotta bad feeling about this.

Hideo Nomo said...

Poopie.

Fred's Brim said...

that pitch was pretty low too

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Cap is allergic to the sixth.

Fred's Brim said...

that chinstrap makes his face look really weird

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That could have been better, but it could have been worse.

Now let's get six runs.

Alex said...

^

60

Paul said...

How do Dre and Kemp knock in 6 runs in one inning if they bat back to back? Gotta be a way.

Spank said...

i call a homerun here for Loney.

It's gotta work someday.

NicJ said...

No local coverage for the kings game tonight?


BOO!!

Fred's Brim said...

maybe ubragg can figure that out

Hideo Nomo said...

Isn't Greinke at like 200 pitches?

Spank said...

Loney you suck.

Alex said...

maybe take a pitch?

Fred's Brim said...

Loney is definitely sitting tomorrow

Steve Sax said...

Loney at .176 BA. At this rate, he'll never get to Mendoza

Fred's Brim said...

I think Ned thought he signed Scott Hairston

Fred's Brim said...

heh good one, Saxy

Fred's Brim said...

is it me or is it really quiet there in Milwaukee?

Fred's Brim said...

good walk, TGJr

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

TGJ walks to set up AJE.

Spank said...

That was close..not

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GAH DAMN YOU TGJ

Fred's Brim said...

no way

Fred's Brim said...

sadly, Donnie won't stop running them. I bet he thinks it will all average out and we'll start being safe soon

Spank said...

URINE!

Fred's Brim said...

nice catch, not-Scott

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

A *ahem* quality start for Cap. Two runs in six innings.

Hideo Nomo said...

Lindbloooooom.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Josh Lindblom wants you to know that he's better than Jamey Wright.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I wonder why F-Rod never caught on?

Spank said...

Wasn't he K-Rod back in the day? seriously I totally forgot about the fucker (FRod).

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dee's on base.

Fred's Brim said...

fix yo sleeve, Krod!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yes, walk Mellis to get to Kemp. You know you want to.

Spank said...

Kemp Time!

Steve Sax said...

Come on, dammit

let's go DODGERS

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sax's use of capitalization will surely motivate the team.

Steve Sax said...

RIP Dick Clark

Spank said...

that looked outside ump

Steve Sax said...

Remind me not to use caps in front of Mr LA SC (sorry; mr la sc)

Steve Sax said...

DAMMIT

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Le sigh.

Spank said...

FUCK

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

Paul said...

Fuck.

Paul said...

Fuck.

Paul said...

Look like it will be up to Loney next inning.

Hahahahahaha...cries.

Paul said...

Yeah they can hit.

Paul said...

That is a sad sad MVP chant.

Steve Sax said...

Lindblom has Carlos Gomez 1-2 and lets him single to leadoff the eighth.

Not liking this

Orel said...

Ajellis with the gun!

Alex said...

troll?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Can we get some runs please?

Steve Sax said...

On to the ninth! See you on the other side, i have to go

Alex said...

later sax

Orel said...

D'Artagnan on the mound! I mean John Axford.

Paul said...

Axford looks like a member of the Flaming Menudos in 1978.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'll be standing in for Sax for the rest of the way.

Alex said...

Loney, you suck.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

KINGS!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, Joe Biden's in Phoenix.

Fred's Brim said...

I think Axford was an extra on Justified

Orel said...

ONJ!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I wouldn't buy a cell phone from Axeford, or Collins, especially not Lyons

Orel said...

Hoping for extras.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

hope the Dodgers win, this has been a crappy day

Fred's Brim said...

karina! just in time!

Orel said...

Epale, Karina! You're our good-luck charm!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

KENLEY JANSEN PITCHING NINTH HE SUCK HAR HAR HAR WHO DODGER CLOSER AGAIN?

Paul said...

Is that a bear hitting?

Paul said...

Bear flys out. Come Janley Kanson!

Fred's Brim said...

Eric Collins, do shut up!

Paul said...

I mean Junley Kansen!

Hideo Nomo said...

FREE BASEBALL

Paul said...

Nice job heir to the closer throne.

NicJ said...

Kings did a pretty good job withstanding that barrage.

Fred's Brim said...

please win this before we have to pitch Jamey Wright

Paul said...

I remember back when I only had faith we could score if Manny was due up. Insert Kemp and Dre now.

Spank said...

i don't know what's worse? The Dodgers losing in the ninth or extra innings with Collins and Lyons.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'll gladly trade a Dodger loss for a Kings win.

Paul said...

We can hit this guy. Oh wait Kennedy is up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kameron Loe? Isn't he from the Valley?

Fred's Brim said...

Nearly Dead Kennedy will get us going

Hideo Nomo said...

Kennedy just looks so defeated.

Paul said...

That felt like a Holiday in Cambodia.

Hideo Nomo said...

Is Kennedy wearing an old Broxton jersey?

Paul said...

What a shot! I'll take it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ajellis gets on base without a walk!

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, AJ!
Cmon, Juan!

Paul said...

I'm annoyed

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit, Rivera.

Spank said...

great

Fred's Brim said...

that's not very good

Fred's Brim said...

gotta make it to the 11th so Matty can bat again

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This feels like a loss. Or maybe gas.

Yep, it's the gas.

NicJ said...

Nothing like blowing your pen for a loss in extras.

Oh, and to top it off it's an early start tomorrow.

Hideo Nomo said...

Collins did not explain that double switch very well.

Orel said...

Luke Roy has been killing us.

Fred's Brim said...

Collins did not explain that EVERYTHING very well.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

OH THANK GOD JUST WHAT I WANTED ADAM KENNEDY TO STAY IN THE GAME

Franklin Stubbs said...

No walkies, dammit!

Paul said...

Lead off walk. We are in trouble.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is a loss.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

(cries)

Hideo Nomo said...

The pinch runner is in to run? You don't say, Lyons.

Orel said...

Thanks, Cesar!

Paul said...

Ha ha bunt. What a fool.

Fred's Brim said...

but but but this is the new Matt Guerrier, the one who was trying so hard to impress last year after he got his big contract and this year he'll be better because he isn't or something

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

LOLBunts.

Spank said...

Back in my day,pitchers would pitch twenty innings in a game,drink a keg of beer after, then start the second game of a double header the next day.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is what, Collins' fourth season? He still sounds out of place to me.

Spank said...

oh fuck

Hideo Nomo said...

Yep. Loss.

Orel said...

And Ajellis just about throws away the game.

Fred's Brim said...

but what kind of beer?

what_difference_does_it_make said...

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

(sobs)

NicJ said...

Has anyone pointed out yet that Kennedy has more buttons on his uniform unbuttoned than buttoned?

Spank said...

Burgermeister

Franklin Stubbs said...

Damn it all!

Paul said...

I want seven infielders!!!!

Paul said...

Fuck stay away from the mound Donny!

karina said...

more optimism, gents! (though i suspect my hameday is way behind)

NicJ said...

Capuano threw this game away when he gave up a mammoth HR to a guy hitting sub-Loney.

Spank said...

Empty net time.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There's no way this can possibly fail.

Fred's Brim said...

Roenicke is a wiener

Paul said...

Huh?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fucking Kottaras.

Spank said...

BOOOOOO!!!

Paul said...

Collins shit his pants.

Paul said...

Walk him.

NicJ said...

*

Paul said...

K now just get the double play. It is sooooo easy.

Franklin Stubbs said...

How could this possibly go wrong?

Fred's Brim said...

why do you walk Weeks if you don't care if he steals 2nd? to load the bases to set up an actual double play?

Spank said...

I'm about to shit my pants. For reals. hurry up dammit!

Spank said...

HE WAS OUT!

Paul said...

What the fuck?

NicJ said...

Kings give up a goal and dodgers lose.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's how.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DAMMIT FUCK SHIT BALLS
