Game 25 Thread: May 2 @ Rockies, 12n

Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 1.78) vs. Drew Pomeranz (0-1, 5.40).

You thought Dinger was a menacing furball? Here comes Pomeranian, a breed of dog of the Spitz type who tends to be "defensive of [its] territory and will thus bark when [it] encounter[s] any outside noises."

Luckily for us Dodger fans, Coors Field has been a library this year, as it has only broken 40K in attendance once this season (the home opener, which wasn't a sellout). Which is probably why they've made today's promotion a special Weather and Science Day event. Yeah, that's sure to draw crowds.

And as for you, Pomeranian?

As an aside, it is truly amazing what kind of shit pops up when you google terms.

This will also serve as the new ownership press conference thread.

Guber
Patton
Magic
Walter
Kasten
Boehly

Hideo Nomo said...

Gwynn 7
Mellis 4
Kemp 8
Rivera 3
Ethier 9
Hairston 5
Sellers 6
Ajellis 2
Kershaw 1

No Loney, Uribe, or Kennedy, meaning those are our bench options. Wheeeeeee.

NicJ said...

I got five bucks that says the lovin' spoonful will be played at the presser.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

IT'S BEGINNING

Fred's Brim said...

I wish we would cut the shit with batting Rivera after Kemp when we face lefties

Prove me wrong, Juanny!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Magic hugs Newcombe, Davis, Garvey and Cey!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"If you don't mind, it doesn't matter" - Vin Scully

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Commitment, fan-friendly, definition of winning, longevity.

The words Vin Scully uses to describe Guggenheim.

Dusty Baker said...

Having those guys on the bench is slightly better than actually having them on the field, no?

NicJ said...

Hey, Tony Villar is actually in town today?

NicJ said...

Alright, wrap it up Tony.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Tony V mentions the Kings!

Dusty Baker said...

It was a hologram of Antonio. He's actually in ATL rapin another self-indulgent piece that will air on CNN this Sunday.

Dusty Baker said...

Didnt catch the beginning but where is Ned?

Jason said...

Shout out to Dusty from Magic.

Dusty Baker said...

Magic just gave me a shoutout!

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Spank Lapierre said...

I've got a boner.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Magic promises to lower the price of parking!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Stoopid work, forcing me to miss all the fun.

Steve K said...

$10 parking!

Dusty Baker said...

Parkin down to ten!!!

(cries)

NicJ said...

$10 Parking!!!!!!


SUCK IT MORENO!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

A lot of focus on improving fan experience. TJ Simers's pencil must be almost out of graphite.

Dusty Baker said...

Suck it Cargo!

(carryover from last night)

Steve K said...

Stadium changes coming...

Steve K said...

This part always makes me nervous.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The availability of the owners will be big too.

Steve K said...

Yeah, but I can't imagine Magic walking the concourse regularly...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

fanbox@ladodgers.com

Spank Lapierre said...

Beers down to $5.

Just kidding.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kasten's had a lot of time to plan improvements, I gather.

Dusty Baker said...

Sax would oppose the idea of lowering beer prices.

Spank Lapierre said...

Tim Leary!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kevin Kennedy was a Dodger?

Dusty Baker said...

EK!

Dusty Baker said...

KK came thru Dodger system and coached in it. Not sure how long he actually played as one.

Spank Lapierre said...

What's Cloris Leachman doing there?

Dusty Baker said...

Oh really?

Dusty Baker said...

The Dodgefather!

Spank Lapierre said...

Dad!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They're running out of room on that stage.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

No offense to either man, but I don't need to see Vin or Magic without a shirt on.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*streaks*

Spank Lapierre said...

There's a lot of sports history and money up on that podium.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Lunch in the dugout club? Damn, that might be the best part of this.

Steve K said...

Free lunch? I'm betting the Sons are mad that they didn't get a press invite.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Magic's getting teary.

Hideo Nomo said...

I bet we could have gotten into this thing if we tried.

Or maybe we did try, I dunno.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh - Larry King with a question

Hideo Nomo said...

Chavez Ravine, hello!

Dusty Baker said...

I was thinking the same thing Nomo. We should have just bum rushed the place.

Hideo Nomo said...

funbox@neeebsmom.com

Spank Lapierre said...

That's gold,Nomo. Gold.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, suck it, Plaschke!

Dusty Baker said...

Ok I just started crying when Matt and Clay came up on DiamondVision.

Fred's Brim said...

I hope MLB or somebody has video of this posted later

If there really is a "Don't Disparage Frank" clause in the contract, let's hope his attorneys don't consider today a breach.

Neeebs * said...

@Nomo: It's "box-o-fun." The other email gets you the inbox of some Ukrainian haberdasher who dated mom in the 70s.

Neeebs * said...

When do they announce the return of the original Cool A Coo?

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh hey, a game.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp with a two-out walk, but Rivera grounds out 5-3 to end the inning.

Scoreless through 1/2 inning.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, there's a lot of comments on this GT! Did something happen this morning?

Steve Sax said...

RIP Junior Seau

Hideo Nomo said...

At Bat audio has been really bad for me this season. Drops out a lot.

Dusty Baker said...

I was able to catch the presses but am co-chairing a call now so can't follow the game closely.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, we're in the bottom of the second with two out and none on, still scoreless.

Or, as Rick Monday likes to say, "we're in the bottom of the second with two out and none on."

Dusty Baker said...

Keep missing those bats, Clay!

Hideo Nomo said...

There goes the no-no.

Steve Sax said...

End of two, scoreless

Steve Sax said...

(Nomo is protective of his Coors Field no-hitter record)

Hideo Nomo said...

It's true.

Hey, Gameday has an interactive hat shuffle you can play during commercial breaks. Stupid, but fun.

Hideo Nomo said...

All Rick Monday-called games are scoreless.

Hideo Nomo said...

O.B. Ellis!

Steve Sax said...

Can Mellis score AJellis?

Steve Sax said...

Ellis and Ellis!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis! Ajellis!

Dusty Baker said...

Runny goodness!

Steve Sax said...

Mellis with a RBI single, socring AJellis!

Steve Sax said...

Pomegranate is scared of the Kempster

Steve Sax said...

If any of you are watching MLB.com Gameday, it's pretty obvious that "Scout" is just a computer alogrithm

It just made a comment about Kerhsaw that is exactly similar to a comment it made about Pomeranz in the first inning.

Three straight four-seam fastballs + balls --> triggers pre-generated comment

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yup. Slider in the dirt with men on board triggers a "faith in the catcher" comment.

I could do without the clutter, frankly.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Balls.

karina said...

epale everyone!

karina said...

CarGO!

:(

Franklin Stubbs said...

At least it's a solo shot. Our scheduled 2 runs per game are still in play.

Orel said...

Karina shows up, Cargo homers. Coincidence?

Hideo Nomo said...

Ugh. Cargo.

karina said...

it was a coincidence, I swear!

Dusty Baker said...

Throw at this piece of cockshit!

Franklin Stubbs said...

cockshit?

QuadSevens said...

Why isn't our power hitting shortstop Gordon playing today?

Franklin Stubbs said...

He's still drained from that mighty wallop last night.

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, at least Matt should get pitched to next inning.

Franklin Stubbs said...

God damn it!

QuadSevens said...

Yahoo is slow. Dammit indeed!

Hideo Nomo said...

Kershaw...losing? STOOPID COORS

Fred's Brim said...

Let's get some goddamn runs, you shitcockers!

Fred's Brim said...

Rivera singles after Matty Ks

QuadSevens said...

One shitcocker on, and Ethier at the plate.

Hideo Nomo said...

Shitcocked.

Dusty Baker said...

Shitcocked and loaded.

That's how I go through life.

QuadSevens said...

0 shitcockers score. Going to the bottom of the 6th.

Fred's Brim said...

Purple cockshits go down 1-2-3

Hideo Nomo said...

PLAY UNDER PROTEST.

karina said...

Herrera always kills my Aguilas, even if he's also from Maracaibo

Franklin Stubbs said...

A hit would be good.

Franklin Stubbs said...

No such luck

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

Fred's Brim said...

we shouldn't expect two RBI hits from Mehllis in one game

Hideo Nomo said...

Damn.

Fred's Brim said...

time to go home. I am done being frustrated with work and this game

Franklin Stubbs said...

Other than the 2 bombs, Kid K has been nails.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Can't expect to win games without scoring, though.

Hideo Nomo said...

8-pitch inning. KERSHAW ANGRY.

Franklin Stubbs said...

If it's going to be, it better be now. Come on, blue!

Paul said...

Four run inning right here.

Franklin Stubbs said...

You heard the man!

Paul said...

Be smart Kemp.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Our vs. Lefty lineup is a little questionable, outside of the usual suspects, is it not?

Franklin Stubbs said...

I suppose you could say the same about the everyday lineup, too.

Paul said...

Crap.

Hideo Nomo said...

At least Juan only made one out.

Paul said...

Ru roh Rex Ruthers.

Paul said...

Nice!!! Let's go non Kempthiers!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Just a fly ball to the outfield. You can DO it!

Hideo Nomo said...

Come on Jerry, get revenge!

QuadSevens said...

Ducks on the pond!

Franklin Stubbs said...

walkies?

Paul said...

3-1. Lets go Jerry!

Franklin Stubbs said...

w00t!

Hideo Nomo said...

In play, run(s)!

Paul said...

What happened? Stupid phone.

Franklin Stubbs said...

doble! I want more!

QuadSevens said...

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!

Paul said...

Double!!! Atta boy Jerry

Steve Sax said...

we retake the lead!

Paul said...

Homerun James.

Steve Sax said...

FJL PH.

WTF

Hideo Nomo said...

STOOPID LONEY LEONARD PART SIX

Steve Sax said...

FJL K

QuadSevens said...

FJL PH K.

Steve Sax said...

That's okay, we only wanted a one-run lead anyway.

karina said...

no lead is safe there but we can do this

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was an underwhelming AB.

Paul said...

Of all the James Loneys in this town you are Jamey Loneyest.

Hideo Nomo said...

Ah well.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'll fucking take it!

Hideo Nomo said...

Starting to dislike Scutaro.

karina said...

do!

Fred's Brim said...

ballsballsballs
as soon as I tune back in, they tie it up

Hideo Nomo said...

DAMN DAMN DAMN.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Balls again.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck! closing all windows

karina said...

not now, Cargo, please

Hideo Nomo said...

*glares at Karina*

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, that should wrap things up.

NicJ said...

Die Cargo die!!

karina said...

it's my fault :(

Franklin Stubbs said...

Actually it's mine. I didn't start him for my fantasy team, so of course he goes off.

Hideo Nomo said...

Great. Now Kennedy will bat first in the 9th.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm so pissed, I'm going to go back to work!

*stomps off in a huff*

Franklin Stubbs said...

*flips the bird to Aubrey Huff*

Steve Sax said...

That's okay, we're going to come back to win.

Paul said...

I am not happy.

Hideo Nomo said...

OK, so...it's getting worse.

Paul said...

Well we are playing the cubs next. 2 out of 3 another road split.

Steve Sax said...

wait, my laggy gameday says it's only 5-3 with two out...

karina said...

Stubbs, i'd love an explanation of why you didn't start him today

Franklin Stubbs said...

Because Kid K was going to ruin his shit, obviously!

(Note: This may be why I'm not good at Fantasy Baseball)

Paul said...

Did you start Juan Rivera instead?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Thankfully, no.

Steve Sax said...

5-3 going into the ninth inning.

(new post also added, as a sidebar)

Paul said...

Think Kennedy is due for a walk.

Paul said...

Mmmmmmmm sidebar.

Paul said...

What?

Hideo Nomo said...

In play, no out!!!

Steve Sax said...

Kennedy: In play, no out

whaaaaaaat???

karina said...

HOPE PEOPLE

Steve Sax said...

tgwynn hr to tie?

Steve Sax said...

Mmmmmmmm sidecar

Steve Sax said...

come on Dodgers, extend this game and take this GT to extra pages

Paul said...

Le sigh.

Hideo Nomo said...

No DP, Mellis!

Franklin Stubbs said...

^We keep our expectations modest.

Franklin Stubbs said...

blerg.

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, that's not a DP, I guess.

Paul said...

Okay. Well Kemp gets his shot.

Steve Sax said...

no pressure, Kemp.

Paul said...

Or not. Dee on deck.

Steve Sax said...

they've gotta walk Kemp, right?

to get to Dee?

Steve Sax said...

they should have had Kemp and Gordon switch uniforms in the dugout.

no one would have noticed

Paul said...

Time for a hit Dee.

Steve Sax said...

WEAK SAUCE ROX

Hideo Nomo said...

Get ready to update that Dee post.

Steve Sax said...

(I would have done the same)

Steve Sax said...

Let's go, Dee!

Steve Sax said...

@Nomo 3:15p: So Dee won't be playing KoL this evening?
