Game 29 Thread: May 7 vs. Giants, 7p

Ted Lilly (3-0, 1.38) vs. Barry Zito (1-0, 1.76).

Opening day is here! That is, the home opening day of the Guggenheim Era. Now everyone can stop pretending to like Frank McCourt, and it's time for the Dodgers to start kicking ass for Magic & Co. Appropriately, the Dodgers (18-10) will be taking on the second-place Giants (14-14) for the first time this year. And, in the first of what is sure to be a series of endlessly classy moves, Magic Johnson will escort Rachel Robinson onto the Dodger Stadium field for pre-game ceremonies, and Dodger great Don Newcombe will throw out the first pitch. Beating the Giants to start this new chapter in Dodger history would be only fitting.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kenley Jansen is now the closer.

Dusty Baker said...

Jansen it is. The kid from that tiny ass country whose spelling I'm always unsure of because I only have ever typed it twice in my life.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is not the year of the closer.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Dusty

Thanks to the dessicated corpse of colonialism, you can always just go with "The Netherlands"

Orel said...

coor-a-sow

Paul said...

Who the hell is Kenley Jansen?

Paul said...

Have I mentioned the Giants suck? Well they do.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I do not much care for the cut of their jib.

Dusty Baker said...

I know that Blue Curaçao is an important ingredient in margaritas I order to celebrate particularly important Dodgers or Chelsea victories

Dusty Baker said...

Oh my god, why don't we start a blog about how much we hate the Gnats and how much thu suck!

Wait, we already did that.

Dusty Baker said...

^they

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thu sucks too.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Dusty

The citrus flavor and extraneous blue coloring are a little dissonant, but it has a cedilla, so I'll allow it.

Fred's Brim said...

and to bring it back to the Avengers, I like mixing vodka, orange juice, then blue curaçao to make what I call an Incredible Hulk

Franklin Stubbs said...

Getting smashed was never so literal!

Fred's Brim said...

HULK BLOTTO, NEED CHIPS TO COUNTERACT SWEET-ASS DRINK!

Paul said...

Zito vs Lilly. Get ready for some heat tonight boys.

Hideo Nomo said...

Epale from the former Mannywood!

Spank Lapierre said...

i need to move out of sticks.

#noTV
#noRadio

Spank Lapierre said...

Fuck The Gnats,y'all! Epale,mang!

Paul said...

Papelgone.

Fred's Brim said...

Magic was telling Matty what to do tonight

Hideo Nomo said...

Dodgers taking the field to No Sleep til Brooklyn!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Keep that Sons streak alive, DB and Nomo!

Fred's Brim said...

DB must be enjoying No Sleep Til Brooklyn pumping on the PA

Paul said...

Nice start.

Fred's Brim said...

good inning, Teodoro

Paul said...

Zito walked 7 in last start. Take some pitches boys.

Franklin Stubbs said...

"The Giants fail to score, as they do so often"

Damn, Vinny tells it like it is!

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Dee

Franklin Stubbs said...

Damn...

Fred's Brim said...

christ - that happens way too often

Franklin Stubbs said...

Dee's going to have to learn some craftiness in addition to just the pure afterburners approach

Fred's Brim said...

Dee might be the slowest fast dude ever

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with the dunker!

Paul said...

Kemp looks a little gimpy.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That CS really hurts now

Paul said...

I think Rivera owes us a homerun here.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Balls

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

46

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I have a good feeling about this.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was pretty cool.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Siddown!

Spank Lapierre said...

Woo Hoo! Vin on the radio.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

2Breu

Franklin Stubbs said...

Lovely!

Spank Lapierre said...

Double down Abreau

Fred's Brim said...

I didn't notice before but is Abreu really wearing 23?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Abreu was wearing 33 in Chicago.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Juanny, you don't have to swing at all of his pitches

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUribe.

Paul said...

Worthless piece of crap.

Fred's Brim said...

yuck

Spank Lapierre said...

Come on. don't waste the double.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least they get Lilly out of the way for the third.

Fred's Brim said...

fudge - he whacked that too

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ted's staying alive.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was no strike.

Spank Lapierre said...

oh well

Paul said...

Good AB Ted. Love how far he chokes up on that bat.

Fred's Brim said...

booolshit - he called that strike as it left Zito's hand

you better be giving that strike to Lilly, too, you punk b

Steve Sax said...

Juan Uribe must be stopped

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax, just throw him pitches

Fred's Brim said...

wack

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, that was a passed ball.

Spank Lapierre said...

dammit

Fred's Brim said...

way too many wild pitches and passed balls lately. This was a problem last year too with AJ

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That steal's on Lilly. His delivery was too damn slow.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Mellis

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

STOP BUNTING, DEE

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis double!

Spank Lapierre said...

Mellis

Franklin Stubbs said...

Old Man Ellis!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Waddup?!?!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Rancho Juaniendo

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'll take it!

Spank Lapierre said...

I'll take that run.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

#RBIMachine

Steve Sax said...

Why is Oyster Pubes playing first?

Fred's Brim said...

Should have been better but I will take it

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax because he's the best up-and-coming catcher in baseball!

Steve Sax said...

If that's the only way we can score runs here, we are in trouble. We will lose this game.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Pubey's getting the day off, Russell Martin style.

Steve Sax said...

@FB we need to bum rush him at first

Btw FB, I assume you have MLB.tv?

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC #RBIMachine, the same way an inclined plane or a pulley is also considered a machine

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax, yes I do. In past years I used it to watch games on my computer but we got a Roku a few months back and there is an MLB.TV app for it so I can watch on a real TV now

Spank Lapierre said...

nice lilly

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Do not operate heavy machinery.

Spank Lapierre said...

I hate seeing all that red inside Staples Center.

Steve Sax said...

@FB: Roku. Now THAT is a machine.

Lills worked it back from 3-0 to get the K. Nice!

Fred's Brim said...

ok gotta hit the hay, gnite all

Steve Sax said...

Clips by 8 early in the second qtr

Steve Sax said...

FB? What? Boooooooooo

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

101

Spank Lapierre said...

Stoopid Urine

Steve Sax said...

Uribe K, what a goddamn surprise

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuuuuuuuuck.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sax isn't bitter.

Spank Lapierre said...

Charlie Steiner gave the score. Do I win a prize?

Spank Lapierre said...

Lob Shitty

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was a load of fail for Dee.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was embarrassing.

Paul said...

What the hell?

Spank Lapierre said...

We got out of that mess unscathed.

Steve Sax said...

Dee, what the fuck?!

Paul said...

Well he is fast. That is about it these days.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Beast Mode never sleeps.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Epale ya'll. Just checking in to say that the Giants SUCK!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dee Gordon = Juan Pierre Redux?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Beast Mode is not perfect.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Juan Pierre was left-handed.

Steve Sax said...

Fucking a, how many errors are we going to have tonight?

Steve Sax said...

Beast mode was just caught sleeping

Paul said...

Beautiful pitch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Not a good game for AJ behind the plate.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Le sigh.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Sheet

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck you, Giants.

Spank Lapierre said...

We got this.

(cries)

NicJ said...

Urine owes us a HR against the giants.

NicJ said...

Urine works a walk. So that means Jellis will homer on the first pitch, right?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ajellis!

Spank Lapierre said...

Woot!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Jellis!

Franklin Stubbs said...

AAAAAAY JAAAAAAY!

NicJ said...

I almost called it.

Cliff Beefpile said...

WASH YER HAIR, ZITO!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wooooooohooooo! 3-1!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Nice gift!

Spank Lapierre said...

Mo runs

Paul said...

Fuck bunts!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I like where this is going!

Paul said...

Lucky. 0 for Dee.

Cliff Beefpile said...

The Riot at second base, ladies and gentlemen.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Seriously, who wears the number 75 in baseball. Dumbass.

Cliff Beefpile said...

"Conor Gillaspie doing the best he can, but that's not much" - Vin Scully.

Paul said...

First pitch fastball right up there. Dammit. Let's get two now.

Paul said...

Bah.

Cliff Beefpile said...

And just FYI, the Phoenix Coyotes are 6 minutes away from taking game 5 and ensuring a Phoenix-LA Kings Western Conference Final.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Unstoppable

Paul said...

Coyote Season!

Steve Sax said...

Three hits and a walk for Kemp.

Wow, that is indeed beast mode.

Paul said...

Hahahaha

Spank Lapierre said...

I think the supermoon is effecting all this crappy play.

Steve Sax said...

That was quite an ill-advised throw, I must say

I'll take it.

Why is FJL entering?

Steve Sax said...

And on his birthday, James...

Paul said...

Laughing time is over. Loney up.

Steve Sax said...

...grounds to short. Happy Birthday!

Paul said...

Crying time. Urine up.

Steve Sax said...

Loney and then Urine. My god.

Paul said...

I don't see Urine at the plate anymore. He is replaced in my mind with 21 million dollars on fire.

Steve Sax said...

Arrgggggghhhhh

Steve Sax said...

Nothing kills a Dodgers hit parade like FJL and Urine

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sax isn-

Ah, fuck it.

Paul said...

Throw strikes Bloomers.

Cliff Beefpile said...

It's official, the Kings play Phoenix in the Conference Finals. They're already chanting, "Beat L.A.". How original.

Cliff Beefpile said...

FJL!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ok, that was a sweet play.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least Loney can still field.

Paul said...

Holy shit James!

Spank Lapierre said...

Birfday!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Fuckin a, great play by Loney!

Steve Sax said...

Admittedly, that was a sweet play by FJL.

We love you, James!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kings were 3-1-2 against Phoenix during the regular season.

Steve Sax said...

Sax ISN'T bitter!!!

Steve Sax said...

Let's go AJellis!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Sax - But Hank Schulman does think you're one of the worst fans in baseball.

Spank Lapierre said...

I like Theriot.

Steve Sax said...

AJellis! Let's roll these mofos this inning.

Steve Sax said...

Call to the bullpen

Sax call to the post-workout shower

Hideo Nomo said...

This is good.

Paul said...

Fuck Bunts!!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I like Loney, I just wish he didn't suck so horribly. Always had a good glove, though.

Steve Sax said...

Keystone Light isn't bitter!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Let's blow this shit right up!

Paul said...

Can I get a....?

Spank Lapierre said...

Rancho Bartendiendo

Paul said...

Kennedy on deck. Buzzkill.

Steve Sax said...

Could someone describe Pubes' error? I missed it

Cliff Beefpile said...

As it turns out...the Giants really DO suck!

It seems only fair to counter with Adam ".115" Kennedy.

Steve Sax said...

Love the guy in the blue blanket behind home plate who jumped up at the last second to give Blackley the late jitters on that 3-0 pitch. Blackley throws another ball and walks in a run.

On second goance, that guy might ave been Javy Guerra in a snuggle.

Spank Lapierre said...

Yahoo Mofos!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hells yeah!

Steve Sax said...

Even Kennedy can get a hit

Steve Sax said...

Sax call to the refrigerator for a beef

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I like runs!

Spank Lapierre said...

FUCK YEAH!!!

Steve Sax said...

Beer

Paul said...

Beat down!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Huzzah! 'Dre Day!

Steve Sax said...

Ethier with a two RBI single!

And there's no one out!,,

Spank Lapierre said...

Steve Sax said...
