Game 3 Thread: April 7 @ Padres, 5:35p

Chris Capuano (0-0, -.--) vs. Dustin Moseley (0-0, -.--).

The swallows are making their annual return to Chris Capuano as he makes his Dodgers debut. Here's hoping that the Dodgers will make their annual return to complete Padre domination, which has thus far been born out in the first two games of the season. At least we'll have more fans in the seats than the home team will at Petco Park.

Our boys are looking to go 3-0 to start the season for the first time since 1999. Anything less than a win will be tough to swallow.

Urine sits!

Orel said...

Over/under on number of comments before we get a Neeebs' mom reference?

Dusty Baker said...

It can't be long now, Orel.

Something she's never said.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

My daughter says who's #5, he's fat and slow. Then I tell her about #5 losing 20 lbs in the offseason. Daughter asks why do the dodgers let him on the team. I have no answer.

Orel said...

Ned Colletti, creating awkward father-daughter moments across the city.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

BTW today I DBTs bday. Lets celebrate with wins and ales!

Orel said...

Happy birthday, DBT! Your birthday present is: a two-year contract.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jonathan Broxton allows a run, but he forces a double play to close out a Kansas City 6-3 win over the Tustin Angels of Buena Park.

Neeebs * said...

Stifler's mom has nothing on mi mami!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Way to go, K.C.!

Fernie V said...

Kuroda pitching and the new shortstop booted the first groundball.

Fernie V said...

Ha, I feel for Kuroda, but they just stole a base on Martin.

Fernie V said...

Three former dodgers on the field for Yankees

Fernie V said...

Happy birthday ToothPick.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Martin is in the best shape of his life.

Hideo Nomo said...

Happy Birthday, DBT! We all chipped in and got you a new pair of softball jeans.

Dusty Baker said...

Have a great birthday, DBT!

I got you this cinnamon toothpick special for today.

Dusty Baker said...

Royals beat Angels? Sweet!

#Hater

Dusty Baker said...

Dodgers Live shaping up to be a good one, so don't sleep on it. Just starting. Live interview with Bills on now.

Paul said...

First Saturday night with the Dodgers on the TV. Life. Is. Bueno.

Dusty Baker said...

Es muy bueno, indeed.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Hideo Nomo said...

Comments back to "normal?" Sweet.

On the sofa too, Vinny. Though, a minute ago, I was under the table.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait'll we hit 201 though, Nomo.

Hideo Nomo said...

That's why I put the quotes.

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny with the Arkansas Traveler reference with. Nice!

Dusty Baker said...

^ (-with)

Dusty Baker said...

This is our SS, folks. #SkinnySwag

He's the skinny one, not me.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Knock him in, Mellis!

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey, just like they practiced!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Knock him in, Kemp!

Dusty Baker said...

Hopefully this is the scenario we'll see all season long.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RBI!

Hideo Nomo said...

Kemp knocked him in.

Dusty Baker said...

RBI goodness. That's the way to do it, lads. LADs.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's baseball the way old farts intended it to be.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, Capuano wears his socks the right way. I might end up liking him a little.

Dusty Baker said...

Where the hell is NicJ, by the way? Absent this season. Booooooo, Nic!

Fernie V said...

I like then don't like the socks

Fernie V said...

Redo:
I like the socks and then I didn't like the socks.

Hideo Nomo said...

Socks the way the old farts intended.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good first inning for Cap.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm beginning to think I'm an old fart.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"I'm beginning to think I'm an old fart."

You already look the part.

Fernie V said...

Holy shit we got ourselves a pitching staff.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I've seen Nic in the last week or so. I think it was in the "Hooray Magic" post madness.

Dusty Baker said...

I guess we had to use our AK today.

Paul said...

Uribe caught the San Diego flu per Vinny.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Never really had an issue with Capuano. Keeping him healthy is a concern, but he can throw.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least Kennedy takes more pitches than Uribe.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Pretty much everybody takes more pitches than Urine.

Dusty Baker said...

I wish Urine had caught the flu three days ago.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Paul

I don't know how you'd tell. He's up hacking most nights.

Paul said...

Neeebs wears his socks like that to Court.

Dusty Baker said...

Got eeeeeeeeeeeeemmm!

Orel said...

Why can't they broadcast Vin all nine innings?

Orel said...

On the radio, that is.

Fernie V said...

Why can't I hear vinny

Fernie V said...

Neebs mom wears those socks to bed.

Dusty Baker said...

I've always thought it was the economics of TV vs radio. TV muscle says we get VI exclusively for 9 innings at this price.

Dusty Baker said...

^Vin

Franklin Stubbs said...

Saw that coming.

Dusty Baker said...

Orlando Hudson - the Town Greeter, per Vin.

Hideo Nomo said...

This just in from the obvious department: Dee will get to 50 SB before Kemp.

Dusty Baker said...

We have an Obvious Department? I thought we did away with that bureau in the re-org.

Orel said...

C'mon Bison!

MR.F said...

Wotcher, y'all.

MR.F said...

Bison steak!

Spank said...

there you go

Dusty Baker said...

6 RBI for Bison already!

Dusty Baker said...

I like my bison steak medium rare.

MR.F said...

ANDRE!

Spank said...

dammit! fucking dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

E with the BOOM! Don't forget about Dre in all the Kemp adoration.

Orel said...

Already 6 RBIs on the season for Kemp!

Dusty Baker said...

Let's keep this going, JLo.

Dusty Baker said...

You're conversing w Moriyama, Nomo?

Spank said...

swinging on a 3-0 count? you the man, loney.

Hideo Nomo said...

Eh, whatever. Fighting with him is so 2010.

QuadSevens said...

Just turned on the game and watched the Dodgers score 3. Good stuff!

Dusty Baker said...

Nomo, always the peacemaker.

Orel said...

Vin says Ethier has 6 RBIs on the year as well.

Spank said...

this is not good

Hideo Nomo said...

Dusty, always the cheesecutter.

MR.F said...

A.J. Ellis with power?!

Dusty Baker said...

Did AJ Ellis just hit a HR?

Spank said...

jellis!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You all thought I was a fool!

QuadSevens said...

HR!?! Well he's halfway to his total from last year.

Hideo Nomo said...

AJHR!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

His first swing was enough to catch the ire of the usually positive and unflappable MDIL. Then he took one out deep to left. Wow.

Dusty Baker said...

We still do, Marla!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Screw you, old fart!

Dusty Baker said...

Cheesecutting old fart!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Cap can cut down on the pitch count, he could have a pretty good year.

Spank said...

hedley

Franklin Stubbs said...

Can we play the Padres every night?

Hideo Nomo said...

Can we sit Uribe every night? Kennedy being awful doesn't bother me as much because he's not getting paid as much.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Balls.

MR.F said...

That didn't look like a strike, but too close to just take...

Spank said...

damn

Hideo Nomo said...

Those dudes suck. Trade 'em!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Remember the days when the Dodgers sucked at hitting with RISP, instead of just sucking at hitting in general?

Paul said...

*points and laughs at the Yankees*

rbnlaw said...

Just got back from 2 soccer games, dinner, and 2 XX ambers ($3 a pint at Super Mex in Fullerton).
The boys look good again tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

We've gotta do a conjugal Super Mex run this summer, RBN. Let's make it happen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Crapola.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's a short leash.

Really? Jamey Wright is the best man for the job? Really?

rbnlaw said...

These walks do not bode well. That and the fucking inconsistent strike zone.

rbnlaw said...

Indeed.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jaysus H, the strikezone is over there!

rbnlaw said...

This keeps up, I'm gonna need tequila.

Dusty Baker said...

MDIL: Did you notice I haven't said one good thing about the Padres today?

(responding to my criticism from yesterday that she wasn't feeling enough hateHateHATE)

rbnlaw said...

Is this what they call an implosion?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Damn, Jamey, you suck.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is not going well.

QuadSevens said...

Hey! A strike!

rbnlaw said...

Just throw a fucking strike. Why get cute?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good fucking fuck.

rbnlaw said...

What
The
Fuck?

rbnlaw said...

I blame Ned.

Dusty Baker said...

I can't remember if I've ever seen three straight runs on bases loaded walks.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sonofabitch.

QuadSevens said...

That's about as ugly an inning as I've ever seen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good thing it's the Padres, or this game would be over.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, crap. At least we're not losing yet.

Paul said...

Not a good inning in my opinion.

rbnlaw said...

Let's get better against Margaret Thatcher.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for your masterful insight, Paul. I concur with your conclusion.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jerry Hairston, OBP machine.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice piece of hitting from JHa.

NicJ said...

Way to answer back Loney.

Alex said...

What up sons! Checking in from the shit stall at the southern California percussion alliance championships in beautiful (but not really) cal state San bernardino. I see that Capuano wasn't able to make it out the 5th...

rbnlaw said...

So anyone else see this Blogger thing differently on their mobiles?

Dusty Baker said...

I was just calling you out for not being here, Nic! How we doin'?

Dusty Baker said...

You're on the can, Alex? Nice! Yeah, 5th inning was rough. Hopefully less rough than the TP in the Cal State San Bern band shitroom.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

Yeah different. As in different but much better. So better.

rbnlaw said...

Petco really is too big.

Dusty Baker said...

Hard to tell distance from the camera angles, but why weren't runners tagging on that fly from TGJ? Is my depth perception off?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

C'mon, Rivera, work the walk and let Dee drive 'em home.

NicJ said...

Not too bad DB.

Wife had a baby so I haven't been able to come around as much.

How is everyone else doing?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit.

rbnlaw said...

This strike zone seems shifty.

Dusty Baker said...

Congratulations on the new addition, Nic! Well done!

Seems like everyone is fine. At least, until the fifth inning we were.

Dusty Baker said...

Stubbs seems a little shifty, too.

Dusty Baker said...

MacDougal really made me nervous and not enjoy that inning. I need pleasant entertainment, people.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MacDougal pitches a relatively clean inning.

Relatively.

rbnlaw said...

Stubbs is very shifty, which should make him a better softball player.

Guess what? Another walk in this game. Let's go Blue !

rbnlaw said...

I'm running low on beer. That makes me shiftless, I think.

rbnlaw said...

Mellis. Out new GIDP hero.

rbnlaw said...

Vin called Gordon, Hudson. Hmmm.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's a ballbuster.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck your fucking spring stats!

rbnlaw said...

Matt Fucking Kemp. Making them pay.

QuadSevens said...

That's a headsup play!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Andre's getting the pass to get to Loney.

Let's see how that goes.

rbnlaw said...

Time for Jim to make them pay.

Dusty Baker said...

Scared of Ethier! That's what I thought!


Now who do we have? Loney. Now they're not so scared.

rbnlaw said...

New season; same Loney.

Dusty Baker said...

!EM CKUF

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why?

rbnlaw said...

I think my daughter was recruited by CKUF. We turned them down.

Dusty Baker said...

Cause me so horny....for some runs.

NicJ said...

I'm convinced the only reason Loney is on the team is because they have a surplus of Loney kids batting practice jerseys they need to cycle through.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm willing to take those BP jerseys off their hands and send him on his merry way.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MacDougal and Guerrier are not perfect, but why couldn't they relieve Cap, instead of the NRI guy?

Dusty Baker said...

Right-o, Marla.

Dusty Baker said...

Annnnnd.....here comes 0-7 Urine.

rbnlaw said...

Did Vin just say Ray Jay Ellis? If so, that's a great name for him.

Alex Cora said...

Shit urine up. Think he hits into a DP?

Alex Cora said...

Well at least it wasn't a DP

NicJ said...

Strikeout is an improvement from a DP.

I guess.

rbnlaw said...

Uribe strikes out.



Shocking. Bring back Eugenio.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

(cries)

rbnlaw said...

Punchless as shit right now. Probably for some time to come as well.

Dusty Baker said...

Aaaaaannnnd there goes Urine.

Someone put him out of my misery.

Dusty Baker said...

177 comments. Starting to wonder what's going to happen at 200.

NicJ said...

Everyone was making such a big deal about the last Lakers/Clippers last game being for the pacific division. It wouldn't surprise me if the clips still win it. Lakers still have to play the spurs three times.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, didn't we have a five-run lead? Fuck!

Dusty Baker said...

Totally agree, Nic. I think more than anything that was a head to head, pride kind of game but over the stretch of the season, Clippers will probably finish better. Esp if Kobe has a shin issue and Bynum can't stay in a game.

Dusty Baker said...

That was so 6:40pm, Sax.

rbnlaw said...

Whoa. When did the NBA lockout end?

rbnlaw said...

Steve Lyons makes bold predictions.

#dumbass

Alex Cora said...

Screw it put loney or Rivera at third. How about selllers Anything but urine. Trade him for some bubble gum.

rbnlaw said...

Petco makes no sense.


Much like me.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Loney plays third, he'll give up more runs with his glove than Uribe gives up with his bat.

Alex Cora said...

How come urine was included in the dodger sale? Who the heck negotiated a deal that INCLUDED urine.

Alex Cora said...

I don't care if a lefty can't play third. It is so painful to watch urine.

(cries)

Alex Cora said...

I don't care if a lefty can't play third. It is so painful to watch urine.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

I agree, AC. We need to just find a way to fill in without Urine. However that looks. This guy is just not going to work, and his shittiness could get contagious. He has absolutely no plan or strategy when he gets to the plate. Unless his plan or strategy is to swing at everything and strike out.

Alex Cora said...

How about Mattingly at third?

Dusty Baker said...

See, Urine's shittiness wore off on Kemp in that last AB.

Steve Sax said...

I don't know if Urine is contagious, Dusty. I thought Urine was sterile.

Steve Sax said...

This would be a bad game to lose

rbnlaw said...

Fucking shifty shittiness from Urine.
Thank gawd the pitching is solid.

rbnlaw said...

Even Vin doesn't know who's playing third for us.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good thing Chad went into the ninth last night, or the bullpen would be fried.

Steve Sax said...

Who will get his first hit of the season first

Loney

Or Urine

Alex Cora said...

Sorry for the rant. Got a little worked up there.

(steps back from ledge)

Deep breaths...
