Game 24 Thread: May 1 @ Rockies, 5:30p

Dinger douses Jose Lima at Coors Field in this Jon SooHoo photo from 2004.

Ted Lilly (2-0, 0.90) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (0-2, 5.85).

Lilly was 3-0 with a 2.66 ERA in four starts against the Rockies last year, MLB.com tells us — which is great news, because the Dodgers, who went an NL-best 16-7 in April, want to get May started off right. Not to mention setting up Clayton Kershaw for a chance at a series win tomorrow. The good news is that Chacin hasn't found his rhythm yet, having made it past the fifth inning in only one of his four starts this season. Oh, and Matt Kemp (.417/.490/.893, 12 HR, 25 RBI, 280 OPS+ in April) is a monster. That should also work in our favor.

Hideo Nomo said...

Hoooo boy.

Where's Hairston?

Jason said...

AJ Ellis is playing second? Mark Ellis is catching? Magic owns the team for a few hours and all hell breaks loose!

Also, doesn't Hariston have an injured hamstring or left hand or something?

Paul said...

What does 2 Ellises, a Kennedy and a Gwynn get you?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Gekel gekel?

Fred's Brim said...

Dinger can go to hell

Dusty Baker said...

I call on the spirit of Lima to haunt Dinger for the rest of his fat muppet life.

Paul said...

Let's score more than 2 runs tonight team!

Paul said...

I just realized I could totally fit an air mattress under my office desk ala Costanza.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Scott Stewart, I forgot about that guy...

Paul said...

...but not sure if I will have room for an ice chest down there....

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Don't forget space for the alarm clock, Paul.

Steve Sax said...

Dinger.

(said like "newman")

Steve Sax said...

Matt Kemp is a monster?

Dinger is a monster, too!

Dusty Baker said...

Scrap the mattress to make room for the ice chest. My professional advice....

Paul said...

Mattress ice chest!!! Brilliant. Where is my patent Attorney?!? Get Neeebs' cousin Feeebs on the line.

rbnlaw said...

Starting at third, Adam Kennedy; the human white flag.

A wise man once said, "I've got a bad feeling about this."

(goes back under desk for nap)

Hideo Nomo said...

GAARP was at least amusing for a little while. We can't even turn the Kennedy thing into something fun. It's just sad.

Paul said...

Well maybe Kennedy will bunt a lot.

Hideo Nomo said...

Foul bunt pop-outs.

Jason said...

Adam KenneDUI?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Pride of CSUN.

Steve Sax said...

'Zona up 1-0 on the Nats in the sixth

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's an intimate crowd in Denver today.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DEE BLAST!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis hits one into the gap for a single! I think Lyons jinxed Chacin.

Dusty Baker said...

Wha-???

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kemp hits one into center! First and third with nobody out!

Steve Sax said...

2-0 Snakes in the seventh

Steve Sax said...

(Bryce Rodent Hair is 0-for-2)

Steve Sax said...

I just got on to GameDay and it says that Dee Gordon went yard.

Come on, guys. Quit fucking with me.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

ETHIER HITS A 3-RUN BOMB!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

DRE!!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Dre with a HR!!!

4-0!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

I think they'll be Chacin this pitcher.

STOOPID LONEY

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess the Dodgers just now remembered they were playing in Coors Field.

Steve Sax said...

And of course, Loney grounds out to first on the first pitch.

Orel said...

What in blazes is going on here? Dee HR???

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think Kennedy's single is more shocking than Gordon's homer.

Dusty Baker said...

I gotta agree w Marla.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice double play.

Bryan said...

Kennedy...doing well so far?

It really was all Frank's fault

Dusty Baker said...

Jhouleast.

Steve Sax said...

Special Dee Gordon First Career HR post up!

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

Dee: 1
JLo: 1
AJellis: 1
Pujols: 0

Orel said...

Rancho Rancho

Hideo Nomo said...

STOOPID LONEY TWO ELECTRIC BOOGALOO

Alex said...

"I'm here for the Dinger Dousing..."

Fucking Loney.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's a nice way to start out.

Spank Lapierre said...

I wanna party with Gretzky's daughter.

Alex said...

Free shit!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Orale, ya'll! I love it when I turn on the TV and see the Dodgers with 5-0 cushion. DeeGee went yard!?!?

karina said...

epale everyone!

I see the Dodgers bombed Maracaibo-born Chacin, great news!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Eric Young Jr. has a lot more jaw than he needs.

Love the R.E.M. photo, Karina!

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers 5, Rox 0 through three

karina said...

gameday froze :(

did Chacin get Kemp?

Steve Sax said...

MLB Gameday Scout:

"Chacin has thrown 75 pitches but has plenty left in the tank, with his fastball sitting at 90 over the past 10 pitches."

Why do I feel like I'm listening to Fox Sports' "Scooter" animated baseball thingy?

Steve Sax said...

@Karina: yes, Kemp Kd

Bench him!

karina said...

Thank you, my dearest Sax :)

@Cliff it's one of my favorite R.E.M. pictures *blushes* by this time my avatar should be a gnome but i don't wanna change it due to the Dodgers' hot start

Steve Sax said...

5-0 through four innings

Steve Sax said...

Oh, I miss REM.

Steve Sax said...

I remember how meaningful Losing My Religion was for me, listening to that sadness in Stipe's voice.

Steve Sax said...

Updated more of the Dee Gordon First HR post.

karina said...

@Sax great minds think alike :_(

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff double from the Gwynnster!

Kennedy can't GIDP!

karina said...

lead off double!

Steve Sax said...

(or at least, it would be a lot harder to do so)

Steve K said...

As of right now, Ted Lilly has pitched 24 innings on the season, which is enough to qualify his pitching stats.

Ladies and gentlemen, Ted Lilly currently leads all of baseball with his 0.75 ERA.

karina said...

"Kennedy flies out softly "

most of us knew that

Hideo Nomo said...

STOOPID LONEY THREE THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK

Cliff Beefpile said...

Jelly!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Stupid Loney 4: A New Hope?

Steve K said...

It's always a good sign when your leadoff bats 4 times in the first 5 innings!

Alex said...

Ajellis HR: 2
Puljas HR: 0

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ellis?!

I can't step away from a game like this for a moment, it seems.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ajellis is jellin'.

Steve Sax said...

AJELLIS!!!

karina said...

@Stubbs if it's gonna be that way, you should get distracted from Dodgers games more often

Steve Sax said...

Hey MLB.com GameDay scout:

Chacin had NOTHING left in the tank.

Sax

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Seems everyone can hit Chacin except Loney

Steve Sax said...

Gordon (.211 BA) is still batting worse than FJL (.222).

Steve Sax said...

Dee OPS: .489
FJL OPS: .674

Steve Sax said...

Some interesting things as you watch the mlb.com highlights:

Dee's HR:
--He doesn't smile until he gets to the dugout, which is pretty cool given it's his first career HR

--Eric Collins' call says Dee's shot was "almost an upper decker!" All I can think about is someone dropping off the kids in the toilet tank.

Ethier's HR:
--to right center, right over the head of a Dodger coach seated on a bench who literally doesn't even flinch or look like he gives a shit

--the Rox outfielders knew it was gone from the start

AJEllis' HR:
--the robust guy who caught the HR on the fly proceeds to drop the ball out of his glove and has to chase it down the aisle

Steve Sax said...

one out, two on for the Lilster

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I like games like this.

karina said...

now a lead off HR comes

Steve Sax said...

Lilly out of a jam!

Steve Sax said...

Arizona beats the Nats 5-1; Bryce Harper hitless

Hideo Nomo said...

I have SL4 cued up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Andre gave that one a charge.

karina said...

next time, i guess :(

Dusty Baker said...

What's the difference between Neeebs' mom and Chacin?

Everybody hits Neeebs' mom.

Hideo Nomo said...

STOOPID LONEY FOUR CITIZENS ON PATROL

Hideo Nomo said...

He gets it because no one was on base.

Steve Sax said...

James Loney singles, yet the Dodgers can't score him.

still 7-0 in the middle of the sixth

Steve Sax said...

gotta go, guys. see you on the other side

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dirk Squarejaw, a.k.a. Eric Young Jr., with the leadoff single.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Meh.

Steve K said...

There goes the ERA lead.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck you, Cargo. Dickbag.

karina said...

Had to be Cargo, because he's awesome

Fred's Brim said...

Collins, shut your stupid mouth

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hopefully what Coors Field giveth with one hand, it taketh not away with the other...

karina said...

hey, he's not a dickbag, he's awesome!

Fred's Brim said...

TGJr!

Spank Lapierre said...

Sessions
Bean
Ebanks
Gasol
Bynum

Fred's Brim said...

@Stubbs I agree - I am never not nervous at Coors

Fred's Brim said...

Kennedy walks?

Fred's Brim said...

that's not good - Falsone talking to Ted

Spank Lapierre said...

the Nuggets are colder than Dusty's prom date.

Fred's Brim said...

stupid wave - I blame Dinger

Spank Lapierre said...

KICK ASS!

Franklin Stubbs said...

If I could blame Kennedy for that DP, I would.

Fred's Brim said...

Ted's done - i don't like that

Fred's Brim said...

Collins, you can do better!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hope Teddy's okay. I don't think the Dodgers can bring Eovaldi for a few more days.

Fred's Brim said...

did Collins just say that Rivera struck out?

Fred's Brim said...

grr I don't like this

Fred's Brim said...

Denver has less tattoos than Dusty's prom date

Fred's Brim said...

^fewer

sorry

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Josh, keep it clean

Dusty Baker said...

My prom date had nuggets?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Coors Field giveth, and Coors Field also giveth to the other guys.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

More of Steve Lyons's patented "homers are bad" logic.

Paul said...

We better get this dude out. Fuck. Cargo up.

Cliff Beefpile said...

fuck this joke of a ballpark.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Here we go...

Paul said...

Linbloom has turned into a pumpkin.

Paul said...

This can only go well.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Josh should have prayed a little bit harder today.

karina said...

gameday is very slow tonight, what did Cargo do?

Spank Lapierre said...

A nice fastball to Cargos head would be nice right about now.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"what did Cargo do?"

He was born.

Paul said...

Well at least if the Rockies score 7 all their fans will get IBS.

Fred's Brim said...

@karina, nothing yet. They are bringing in Elbert to give up the tying home run

NicJ said...

Humidor!!

Paul said...

5 fastballs.

karina said...

hey, optimism here!

though given what I've seen Cargo doing at the Luis Aparicio, a rough hitters' park, it's very worrying.

Paul said...

Nice.

Spank Lapierre said...

Ollie North looks a lot like Dubya.

Fred's Brim said...

there we go

Hideo Nomo said...

Donnie's gonna develop some wicked heartburn. There was a reason Tommy endorsed Rolaids.

Paul said...

Do you know Tyler Colvin?

Paul said...

remember those multi hit games by Dee? I don't.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis shows bunt!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis hits single!

Mellis almost gets tagged out!

Mellis is safe!

Paul said...

Four hits for Ellis!! We can't let this one get away.

Paul said...

That last swing was retro Kemp.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Blerg, fielder's choice. At least Kemp can try for steal #3.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Matt Reynolds looks like he's as old as Moyer.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to killKillKILL Cargo!

@Karina - I hate him!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Well that sucked.

Dusty Baker said...

Lakers up 36-34.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Harumph.

Spank Lapierre said...

laker game getting feisty. i predict chingasos in the 3rd quarter.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Shut up, Collins. Have you never seen a game in Colorado?! 7-0 is nothing.

Paul said...

Nice catch Tony.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I feel like this is setting up a crappy Guerra BS.

Paul said...

Come on Henry Jackson! Two more out.

Paul said...

Give em hell Donnie!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dee's throw was a little high, but Loney snags it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GAAAAH

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Giambi? He's still around?

Paul said...

Blown Set up?

Paul said...

I am having Matt Stairs PTSD.

Spank Lapierre said...

i bet Marv Albert still wears those garters under his clothes during broadcast.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow. He's 41 already. How time flies.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Dodgers pen. Don't go all Angels pen on us.

Paul said...

This shit is on? Oh the shift.

Spank Lapierre said...

They haven't buried Giambi yet?

Dusty Baker said...

Why is Jansen throwing a cutter almost every single pitch?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

K!

Alex said...

Nice Jensen.

Paul said...

I lika da strikeout!!!

Dusty Baker said...

You lika da strikeout?

Spank Lapierre said...

That strikeout looked great on Gameday.

Paul said...

Jesus Colorado really wants those Tacos

Alex said...

Spank's Chigaso Level Alert: High

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Andre starts the inning with a single.

Paul said...

Yes da strikeout is good.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus Colorado is hungry after a long day at work and then being at the ballpark.

Paul said...

Jesus Colorado is also the name of Flaming Menudos most controversial guitarist.

Dusty Baker said...

Bunt pop for Loney. Jesus Colorado this guy stinks. He just plain stinks. We have to make a move at this point.

NicJ said...

We need a real first basemen, Magic.

Hideo Nomo said...

STOOPID LONEY FIVE THE DREAM CHILD

Dusty Baker said...

Controversial in the sense that he couldn't actually play the guitar, or any other musical instrument. Yet, the job was his - for a time.

Paul said...

I felt a thousand bloggers heads explode on that Loney bunt.

NicJ said...

Well at least we have Guerra warming. He will close the game in a quick and efficient fashion.

(cries)

karina said...

they can win...

meanwhile, I'm watching Sandoval hitting his 5th HR

Dusty Baker said...

Are you just trying to kill us softly, karina? We're fragile here.

Spank Lapierre said...

All them pitches for a strikeout.

Paul said...

All you had to do was introduce him an the crowd went nuts. Just walked around pointing at the crowd but didn't do much besides that. He was a self proclaimed political guitarist

NicJ said...

Why can't Adam Kennedy be more like John F. Kennedy, dead.

Spank Lapierre said...

Can we get one more run before sure blow comes in?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was no strike.

Alex said...

Kennedy once again proving that nothing good comes from Riverside...

Dusty Baker said...

Sure blow? Good. I knew that Peruvian connection would come through.

Dusty Baker said...
