Game 13 Thread: April 19 @ Brewers, 10a

Aaron Harang (0-1, 5.91) vs. Randy Wolf (0-1, 10.61).

Breakfast baseball! The Dodgers are hoping Harang, who struck out nine straight in his last start, can do that, say, three times in a row today. The welcoming arms of Minute Maid Park await this weekend, but it sure would be sweet as waffles if we could squeeze out a win and avoid the sweep before getting there.

Old friend Randy Wolf stands between saving a little face and the official end of the Dodgers' hot start. Let's see if he still has any love left for the Blue.

I am pissed this morning.
Not at the team but in the fact that we've lost two even though we are playing well. Sorry Randy, I like you but somebody's got to pay for the last two nights

Dusty Baker said...

I'm feeling the hateHateHATE!!!! today.

Wicks said...

I've got MLB At-Bat on my phone today. That means work with Dodgers radio...good-bye production!

Dusty Baker said...

Production? Production?

Wicks said...

Wolf is on the mound and SOSG doesn't have a Star Wars related post?

Dusty Baker said...

@Wicks

It's refreshing, isn't it?

Dusty Baker said...

Oooof...bad swing on that last pitch that K's Kemp. He chased a bad ball.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp K to end the first.

I have a really, really, really bad feeling about this

Steve Sax said...

@Wicks: that's kind of a Star Wars-themed comment for you

Fred's Brim said...

Saxy needs beer

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Big M, little organ

Wicks said...

Good work Hans...I mean Sax!

Wicks said...

Quick question. Why is the media so soft on Braun? He is a cheat who got off on the biggest technicality of all technicalities and it's only a technicality if you think the collector did something shady to the sample and it has been proven that he didn't...

#BraunSux

QuadSevens said...

Harang looks like he is stoned in his yahoo profile picture.

NicJ said...

I think even if he had been suspended it would have been a little worse but no way near the uproar steroids used to cause. Personally I've become apathetic to the whole thing.

Steve Sax said...

fourth error for deeee gordon.

reminding me of jose offerman days, dee

MR.F said...

Yay! Aaron Harang avoided dialing up the Corey Hotline.

Steve Sax said...

@Wicks: 10:25p: I agree, the Braun thing just kind of disappeared, like that former Sandusky case DA

MR.F said...

Yeah Braun sucks!!!!

MR.F said...

I mean, I agree with Wicks.

Fred's Brim said...

@Q7 and Andre kind of looks like Rod Barajas

Dusty Baker said...

re: Braun and steroids

I get a sense that sports writers and commentators are a) tired of the issue and b) think it's been played out already as a news story. You're right - so many were sympathetic to Braun. How can you be sympathetic? It's not like he wasn't guilty; rather, he was let off on a technicality.

MR.F said...

DRE DAY

Dusty Baker said...

We got some men on and now JLo is up to bring them i......(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

but Dusty, he's so handsome!

Fred's Brim said...

why is Loney in the starting lineup today?

Wicks said...

Thanks for your roids thoughts all. I agree, I don't think anyone cares anymore. Let's just legalize it and see if Kemp can hit 100 HRs. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Go Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

Treanor with a sac fly. 1-0 Blue Guys.

MR.F said...

Matt May with the RBI!

Wicks said...

That might be the best AB all year for Treanor.

Fred's Brim said...

Matt Treanor has exceeded my expectations for him for the season

Dusty Baker said...

I like how Treanor has an RBI before he has a base hit.

Dusty Baker said...

How clever...when Brewers get a guy on, the house gets the crowd going with snippets of the song encouraging folks to "...get it started in here." Ingenious!

Fred's Brim said...

time for some of them strikeouts, Double-A

Fred's Brim said...

"ev-ree-bod-e clap yo handz"

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

MR.F said...

Damn you Randy Wolf!

Fred's Brim said...

strand him, AA

Steve Sax said...

fuck, we had the lead for about 10 milliseconds

Wicks said...

The season is over :(

Alex said...

At least Harang got out of it, barley. Now don't let it happen again...EVER.

Dusty Baker said...

I have a feeling every inning is going to be like this.

We may have seen the best of Harang already during last outing.

Dusty Baker said...

Gotta get Dee on base more.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Alex said...

Wolf on the mound and Treanor in the game and no Star Wars references OR pics of Mrs. Treanor in the GT?

we're fucked.

Spank said...

tied,yo.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RUN(S)

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Dre, untie this shit

Dusty Baker said...

@Alex

We have to save something for the PGT, right?

Hopefully it will be cartoon porn of a Jawa hooking up with Mrs. Treanor.

Spank said...

up a run,yo.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MOAR RUN(S)

Dusty Baker said...

Is it Singles Day or what?

Fred's Brim said...

UNGA BUNGA!

Spank said...

I hate that guy. #Hairston

Spank said...

I hate that guy Part II. #Loney

Paul said...

Can i recycle?

There are more singles here than at a Star Wars convention.

Thanks folks enjoy the all you can eat buffet.

Paul said...

I don't trust us holding this lead for an inning much less the game.

Alex said...

@Dusty

hell, I'll take Mrs. Treanor wrapped up in dead tauntaun if it comes with a W for us...

Fred's Brim said...

"Give me some of the yellow, and don't get cheap on me"

Alex said...

^ Cousin Eddie!

Paul said...

Judging by gameday Harang is aiming for the sweet part of their bats.

Dusty Baker said...

What a wallop from Treanor!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

B'wah?

Fred's Brim said...

what the fuck just happened? Not sure I believe what I am reading

Wicks said...

Treanor should hit behind Kemp this weekend...

Fred's Brim said...

get him home, double A!

MR.F said...

Matt May exceeds expectations! He's truly acing his OWLs!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy!

Fred's Brim said...

was it a squeeze?

MR.F said...

Harangutan gets him home!

Alex said...

Mellis, you're our only hope...

Dusty Baker said...

As much as I love NL far more than AL, this is the part that drives me crazy. AL teams know how to GET A GOD DAMN MAN ON THIRD IN TO SCORE when there are no outs. Jesus fucking christ, guys.

Fred's Brim said...

goddamn yahoo and our hitters

Hideo Nomo said...

Just got out of a training. What the butt is happening?

Fred's Brim said...

unacceptable:
- not scoring when you have a guy on third and no outs
- walking the opposing pitcher

QuadSevens said...

I'm confused, did Treanor score or not in the 4th? Yahoo says he did in big green writing in the play-by-play, but shows a 0 in the top of the 4th for us.

Dusty Baker said...

Treanor did not score.

QuadSevens said...

Stupid Yahoo!

MR.F said...

NOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

nice inning

Dusty Baker said...

Stupid hitters behind Treanor!

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp #7!

Alex said...

KEMvP!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty you magnificent beast!

Wicks said...

Kemp > The Cheat

Hideo Nomo said...

Kemp? I haven't even gotten my At Bat app running yet.

Fred's Brim said...

when was the last time Matty pulled a homer?

Dusty Baker said...

Matt hits base balls good.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nomo

How is that At Bat 2010 treating you these days?

MR.F said...

BISONNNNNNNNNNNNN

Hideo Nomo said...

2010?

QuadSevens said...

#BMDC which wall the ball flies over.

Dusty Baker said...

You just seemed like you were way behind Nomo so figured you were still app-lagging.

Hideo Nomo said...

I think the audio still lags, but I'm not following on Gameday, so I can't be sure.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work!

MR.F said...

No technicality can save Braun from that strikeout.

Dusty Baker said...

YOU FUCKING SUCKBLOW, LONEY!

Bench this fool.

Dusty Baker said...

Braun has looked bad on a couple of ABs today.

And I, for one, like it.

Fred's Brim said...

balls - going into 90 minutes of meetings. Get us some more runs!

Alex said...

Wright up and throwing...

Dusty Baker said...

Who is this ugly-ass Kameron Loe goon?

Dusty Baker said...

ps- I hate him already.

Paul said...

Just saw the location of the pitch Matty hit out. If I was a pitcher I would just walk him from now on.

Steve Sax said...

4-3 at the stretch

Dusty Baker said...

4-3 at the time for me to go take a leak finally.

Dusty Baker said...

Surly factor: +7

MR.F said...

Braun strikes out again!

Steve Sax said...

Loney didn't GIDP!!!!

Spank said...

Paying attention to the third base coach is a lost art.

Spank said...

Fucking awesome.

MR.F said...

James Loney doubled, as in, not GIDP'd?

Steve Sax said...

Fuck, that was a bad squeeze

Spank said...

Great inning.

Steve Sax said...

That at bat was a Treanor-wreck

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

I just scared my elderly neighbor by yelling some really uncouth profanities with only the screen door between us as she worked out in the courtyard.

Surly factor: +8

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, Karina!

Alex said...

déjà vu...

Spank said...

nice fucking play hairston. wow

Alex said...

damn we needed that play!

who's due?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm due, Alex.I'm definitely due.

Alex said...

a wabbit's loose...

Spank said...

Dee was out. mofo never touched nthe base.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dee needs to go in spikes first next time.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gut check time again.

(sighs)

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow. Nice play by both Hairston and Loney.

Alex said...

someone remind Javy that sleeved blankets are for closers...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow. OK.

Spank said...

One mas out remaining to salvage this series

Cliff Beefpile said...

Atta boy, Guerra! Belated party!

Spank said...

That's your closer peeps.

Hideo Nomo said...

WELCOME BACK GOOD JAVY!

Alex said...

save face!

Dusty Baker said...

PGT up!
