Game 21 Thread: April 28 vs. Nats, 6p

Chad Billingsley (2-1, 3.04) vs. Stephen Strasburg (2-0, 1.08).

Rev up the hype machine! Sons Dusty, Sax and yours truly and reader John G will be in the house to check out the major-league debut of the first pick of the 2010 draft, 19-year old Bryce Harper. Mr. Eyeblack, who signed a five-year, $9.9-million contract, is the most hyped prospect since, well, starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg. The 23-year-old Strasburg, the first pick of the 2009 draft, signed a four-year, $15.1 contract and has already undergone Tommy John surgery in his young career. Is he back on track for greatness? Will Harper live up to the hype? The Dodgers will find out tonight.

Kings game thread insert here.

1-1 after first period. Quick looking sharp. St. Louis came out strong. Kings came on in the last 6 mins of the first.

Lets go Kings.

Orel said...

Caught Harper in BP. Can swing the bat, a little.

Hideo Nomo said...

Where is everybody? Other than at the game.

NPUT with a pic of tonight's bobblehead.

what_difference_does_it_make said...

Watching the game at Buffalo Wild Wings.....

Hideo Nomo said...

Strasburg's on a pitch count, right? That's how we got past him last time.

Hideo Nomo said...

Just so I'm clear: We're rooting for Blue (singular) and against Blues (plural).

Spank Lapierre said...

Blacked out for the season it seems like. Fuck Dish!

Hideo Nomo said...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Harper looks like a douche. I already don't like him.

NicJ said...

Man hilarious that someone's ass will forever taint the video of Harper's first hit.

rbnlaw said...

Via TBLA: "Dave's Johnson on Bryce Harper..."

And I laughed.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Heh. You said "taint".

Hideo Nomo said...

Steiner damn near killed me on the call of the play at the plate. "He is...


















...safe!"

Hideo Nomo said...

He said ass taint.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kings win!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kings win indeed! You know you're things are going your way when Matt Greene scores the GW.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh, Dee. You're lucky the team completely banked shortstop on you this year.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What's that make, a goal for Penner in each of the Game 1s? That in and of itself calls for celebration.

Cliff Beefpile said...

^^ minus you're

Hideo Nomo said...

Untie this bitch, Matty.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Penner had a nice game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Clippard looks like Martha Plimpton from 'The Goonies'.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

A steal? Please, that's so 2011.

NicJ said...

jeeze, at this rate Guerra might be in the minors soon.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, so much for the closer situation being solved.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Javy's fucked.

Paul said...

One run again Can we trade for Manny?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Loney can homer...

Paul said...

This guy is so wild we might get some runners on.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Just don't do anything stupid, Urine.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Uribe is due for a homer.

Paul said...

Just don't be a total fuckup Urine.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think someone realized the game rode on Uribe's shoulders and that made him snap.

Spank Lapierre said...

@ Nomo 7;40pm

alrighty then

Paul said...

Good luck getting Angel Hernandez to give us a call.

Paul said...

Wow!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

YOU CAN'T SPELL URIBE WITHOUT RBI

Cliff Beefpile said...

AW SHIT!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Lezgo, Ajellis!

Paul said...

Let's go Jellis!!!

Paul said...

We don't have any speed on the bases.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit ump! Get outta the way!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

BOOOOOOOOOOO

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck you, Adam Kennedy.

Paul said...

Fuck Kennedy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

KENNEDY? FUUUUUUUUCK.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GODDAMMIT

Cliff Beefpile said...

OK, the Dodgers really need to read up on how to take out a catcher.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh man, not Dee. NOT DEE.

Neeebs * said...

Adam Kennedy sucks

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dee, please don't swing at balls at your feet. Thanks.

Paul said...

Dead meat.

DelinO said...

Mr. April's up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This game is messed up.

DelinO said...

I've got a 1000 channels, not one carrying this game

Cliff Beefpile said...

FUCK YEAH!!!!!

Paul said...

Yeah!!!! Uribe you slow ass!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Thank you baseball gods for taking it out of Dee's hands.

DelinO said...

WILD BOYS!!!!

DelinO said...

It was the fear of Dee that caused this.

Neeebs * said...

Uribe waddled down the line

Cliff Beefpile said...

*Throws an Oh Henry bar*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't even know anymore.

Paul said...

Holy shit!!!!

Orel said...

OH MY FREAKIN GOD

Paul said...

This Is becoming a National Tragedy.

Neeebs * said...

Now that's weird.

DelinO said...

Fear the Gordon

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

National Tragedy? Isn't that the new Nic Cage movie coming out this summer?

Paul said...

Gor the Nlue Tony!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

If John Lackey and Darin Erstad had a kid he'd look like this new pitcher.

DelinO said...

Look for DEE-LITE post later.

Eugenio's Streak said...

All this excitement almost woke up Penelope! So far the dodgers are 1-0 since she was born!

Paul said...

Yeah Cage tries to decode Bryce Harpers haircut

DelinO said...

Czar - Nic Cage has 23 movies coming out this summer as part of his bankruptcy recovery. And none of us will see any of them

Neeebs * said...

gor it well

Neeebs * said...

nlue rules

Spank Lapierre said...

you better get a hit motherfucker.

Spank Lapierre said...

i haven't seen Oakley's like that since the early 90's.

Cliff Beefpile said...

SHIT!

Spank Lapierre said...

Boooo! i'm outta here.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Crap. Extras.

Paul said...

No nlues. The french rat gets the out.

DelinO said...

All right... off to Golden Road bar.

Yes, it's a real place.

Cliff Beefpile said...

At least we get Kemp and 'Dre in the bottom of the 10th.

Neeebs * said...

Off to watch the Kings replay.

Paul said...

Those Oakleys are awesome. Oooooooh yeah! dig it!

Hideo Nomo said...

*waves down the street at DelinO*

Paul said...

I think that is a typo and Delino is headed to the Golden Rod bar.

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm findin it very hard to function right now.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Too many letters on Lombardozzi's jersey. Slows his bat speed way down.

Spank Lapierre said...

Where Bryce at?

DelinO said...

@ Paul
IT was a typo.
IT's actually the "ENORMOUS DONG" bar.
Next to the Blue Oyster.

Spank Lapierre said...

I can't stand up so I'm staying put.

DelinO said...

Just realized one downside of this game.... Clippard was in line for the win. And he's on my suddenly resurgent Fantasy team.

Paul said...

Big Dong Jackson opened a bar?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jamey!

Spank Lapierre said...

I'm going to add Derrick Rose to my team.

Paul said...

I really want this to end quickly.

Paul said...

I'm going to add Axl Rose to my team.

Spank Lapierre said...

FUCK YEAH MOFOS!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS SHIT UP

Cliff Beefpile said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! BISON BISHES!

Spank Lapierre said...

*faints*

Paul said...

Make that party!!!

Neeebs * said...

Now that's a spicy meatball.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dodgers win. Kings win. All is right with the world.

Neeebs * said...

Thank you, says Javy.

Spank Lapierre said...

Everyone beyond Dodger fans seem oblivious why Kemp gets the chant MVP.

Hideo Nomo said...

Best game since 4+1?

Alex said...

WE MAKE WALK OFF HOME RUN PARTY!!!

Spank Lapierre said...

Thanks Nomo.

Eugenio's Streak said...
