Game 30 Thread: May 8 vs. Giants, 7p

"Fee Fi Cy Young!"

Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 2.63 ERA) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (0-2, 3.42 ERA)

In 2011, Kershaw feasted on the Giants, going 5-0 with a paltry 1.07 ERA. In 2012, he's off to a solid, if unspectacular start and is coming off a game in Colorado where he gave up three home runs (for the first time in his career). It's the perfect time to go up against a team he usually manhandles.

Unfortunately, rotations didn't sync up to give us another matchup with perpetual Kershaw whipping boy Timmah Linceum. Instead, we get journeyman Vogelsong, in search of his first win. He won't be finding it here, if the Cy Young winner, the MVP-to-be, and the...*ahem*..."worst fans in baseball" have anything to say about it.

MS Paint masterpiece by me.

Spank Lapierre said...

Fuck the Gnats!

Orel said...

Josh Hamilton with 4 HR today. 5 HR and a double in his last 6 PA.

Hideo Nomo said...

That gives him 14, right? Now HE'S on pace with 2001 Barroid.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I got chills.

Fred's Brim said...

I feel a little sick to my stomach saying this but I was hoping Abreu would be in the lineup again

Fred's Brim said...

and the Gnats can go to hell

Fred's Brim said...

lotta Busters, Bretts and Brandons in that Gnats lineup

Fred's Brim said...

nice pickup, Juanny

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I wanna call Mellis "Ranger Factor".

Fred's Brim said...

this homeplate ump is loud

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's using your legs, Dee.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Dee!

Fred's Brim said...

am I really 2 minutes behind you, Marla?

Fred's Brim said...

hmmm

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GAHDDAMMIT

Spank Lapierre said...

fuck

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Where's Ted Lilly when u need him? This Kershaw kid is getting smacked around.

Orel said...

Hmmm. Another HR off Clayton.

Fred's Brim said...

what the hell?

Fred's Brim said...

they were booing Clayton after that home run

Fred's Brim said...

not really

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WORST FANS EVER

Spank Lapierre said...

BOOOOOOOO!!

Orel said...

Maybe Clayton really liked Frank McCourt.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, stupid

Dusty Baker said...

I was saying Booouuuuribe.

NicJ said...

Kershaw looks pretty crappy. Missing all over the place.

Fred's Brim said...

Is that a Jheri curl I see under Crawford's helmet?

Dusty Baker said...

WTF happened? Clay gave up a HR?

(at a business function w no Dodger game handy, Vinny)

Orel said...

Then a walk and a single.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like where this game is going.

Dusty Baker said...

Did Kershaw and Lilly have some sort of Freaky Friday moment or something?

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton's pitches seem to be high

Orel said...

Kershaw so far this inning: single, HR, K, BB, single.

Dusty Baker said...

Spanky seems to be high, too.

Fred's Brim said...

high on life

and some drugs

NicJ said...

I'm going to find my yearbook and draw devil horns on Brett Pill's picture.

Fred's Brim said...

that's a lotta deuces

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was a bitter pill of an inning.

(flogs self for crappy pun)

Dusty Baker said...

(flogs self for pleasure)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Double Dre!

Spank Lapierre said...

Dre double.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

46

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

I'm out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Can one get his press credentials revoked if he uses the team's wifi to make fun of the attendance every single night?

Fred's Brim said...

Flogging Dusty was the original name for the band Flogging Molly. That was until Dusty Springfield sued them. Molly Ringwald doesn't have an opinion

Spank Lapierre said...

Suck it,Celtics.

Fred's Brim said...

writers have done less to have their credentials yanked

Fred's Brim said...

and even less to have other things yanked

Spank Lapierre said...

Flogging Molly Ringwald was a hit song by the Flaming Menudos.

NicJ said...

Once the LA Times goes under they will get revoked anyways.

Fred's Brim said...

nice tag, Dre

Spank Lapierre said...

Come on Loney. hit the ball you bastard.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Loney double!

Spank Lapierre said...

He heard me. Woohoo!

NicJ said...

Belly whopper!!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy FJL!

Spank Lapierre said...

Urine with the homerun dramatics swing on a flyball.

Fred's Brim said...

If he was a Giant, that would have gone 10 rows into the pavillion

Spank Lapierre said...

Beard mode retires.

Fred's Brim said...

yuck

Fred's Brim said...

:( i'll miss you, beardo

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Clayton, we want a clean inning

Spank Lapierre said...

i hate that Calamari dude on the Nuggets.

Spank Lapierre said...

nice inning by clay

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Maybe the second inning was an anomaly.

Fred's Brim said...

i like it

Dusty Baker said...

@ Spank

Not only was Flogging Molly Ringwald a Flaming Menudos song, it was also the basis for a successful lawsuit brought against the band. Neeebs and Paul mounted a valiant defense whose logic revolved around the fact that Ringwald deserved the flogging in order to preserve social order. However, the strict constitutionalists of the Supreme Court eventually disagrees despite the, er, offerings on the side that were conveyed. Sad tale, really. And look what happened to Molly.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I like seeing Magic every time the camera pans to the on-deck circle.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd like to see Magic pinch hit for Urine.

Spank Lapierre said...

thanks for the info Dusty. i don't remeber that. i must have been high with Neeebs mom at the time.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis!

Spank Lapierre said...

Come on Kemp. hit it out so i can watch the Laker game mutt.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

A single for Kemp. Two on, one out for Dre.

Spank Lapierre said...

2 on for Dre day.

Spank Lapierre said...

BOOOOOOOO!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Your not remembering anything was also part of the defense strategy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was totally Loney's plan.

Loney Fan said...

James Loney is the man.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why can't Bobby be starting.

Fred's Brim said...

@MLASC, I think they change his colostomy bag on Tuesdays

Loney Fan said...

*James Loney is the man (on defense)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

C'mon, Juany.

Spank Lapierre said...

that inning sucked

Fred's Brim said...

blurg

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Clayton, keep throwing up the zeros. Hopefully the bats will get lucky and get you a couple of runs

Spank Lapierre said...

shoot the ball ,mofo

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis!

Fred's Brim said...

The Range Ranger goes and gets it!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Work the walk, Clayton!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I would have thought they'd go for this face when making Orel's bobblehead.

Spank Lapierre said...

BARNES!

Fred's Brim said...

Steve Sax said...

Fuck, Vogelsong now rolling

2-1 Giants through five

Steve Sax said...

Need the floodgates to open for the Dodgers so I can watch the Lake Show

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

TheriLOL

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Juany almost had that one.

Steve Sax said...

Urine smothers the ball but can't find it under his gut; one-out single for melky

Steve Sax said...

Wow, nice K by Clayton to get out of the inning

Fred's Brim said...

nice hook

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Now let's get a couple of runs, kay?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

All right, I'll settle for just one run.

Spank Lapierre said...

that was crappy

Fred's Brim said...

bo-ring

Spank Lapierre said...

goddammit lakers

Steve Sax said...

It would be nice to get a hit off of Vogelsong

Fred's Brim said...

phew - I thought Vin jinxed us there

Steve Sax said...

Rivera Loney Uribe scheduled for the seventh. Anyone guessing we go 1-2-3?

Spank Lapierre said...

BOOOOO!!

Now back to the Dodger game.

Steve Sax said...

The last two nights, Nancy B hasnt accompanied GBA. What gives? These guys need the help.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Clayton

Steve Sax said...

Evelyn Taft! Wow.

Steve Sax said...

Evelyn Taft > Carl's Jr Drive In girl

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

1-2-3 we will not be going.

Spank Lapierre said...

Here we go. Let's make some noise,y'all.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Drive in girl is Kate Upton, Sax. Do you homework.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Juanny!

Steve Sax said...

FJL, please don't GIDP

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FJL does not GIDP.

Spank Lapierre said...

yup.

Steve Sax said...

Back to back singles? Surprising!

Here's Urine to hit into a triple play...

Hideo Nomo said...

Uribe triple play here.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCKING BUNT.

Spank Lapierre said...

Well fuck me.

Hideo Nomo said...

Or double play.

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy, James!

Steve Sax said...

Second worse thing.

Urine, you fucking suck donkey balls

Spank Lapierre said...

Looked like Urine was safe but who cares.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

How eloquent, Sax.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

Hideo Nomo said...

I think he actually beat the throw.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe must be stopped before he kills again.

Hideo Nomo said...

DAMMIT x2

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's up to you, Ajellis.

DodgersMO63701 said...

Is that Larry David in the front row?

Steve Sax said...

The next time anyone gets psyched about Ned, they need to remember two players

Juan Uribe
Jason Schmidt

Hideo Nomo said...

I want Ajellis and Posey to get in a scrap.

Steve Sax said...

Fucking A, Urine, you are horrible. And fat.

Hideo Nomo said...

The only one psyched about Ned is Ned.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sax isn't incensed.

Steve Sax said...

@Gnomes 9:03p: I think Uribe ate the throw.

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

Steve Sax said...

I am bitter!!!!

Steve Sax said...

FREEEEEEEEDOMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm more pissed with Donnie for putting the bunt on in the first place.

Orel said...

Did Mattingly call for Uribe to bunt?

Fred's Brim said...

Keep us within one, Clayton

Steve Sax said...

Urine's only sacrifice this year was passing on his fourth Krispy Kreme at the post-game spread

Steve Sax said...

STELLLLAAAAAAAA

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I've a feeling Juany's BIDP will find its way into the PGT.

Steve Sax said...

ARTOISSSSSSSSS

Paul said...

Bunts don't kill rallys slow ass crappy bunters do.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bad throw, Clayton.

Spank Lapierre said...

Don't do that shit Kid K. You gonna fuck up your shit up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

UJTD

Spank Lapierre said...

double play

Fred's Brim said...

Only Jeter Jeters a jump throw like that

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Clayton!

Steve Sax said...

We need the Giants to send in that Blackley guy

Paul said...

Giants are due for an error.

Steve Sax said...

Bottom 8, down by one. Here's Abreu, PH

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Stoopid bats.

Steve Sax said...

Vin is talking of Abreu in the past tense, during his AB

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bobby walks. Please don't bunt, Dee.

Spank Lapierre said...

here we go.

Spank Lapierre said...

Dre pimping a purse. Fitting.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh. Well, that shows me.

Paul said...

Fuck Bunts!!!!!!!!

Spank Lapierre said...

Hells yeah. Let's score some runs bishes

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Is Mellis going to bunt?

Spank Lapierre said...

i say yes to the Mellis bunt.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yes, yes he is.

Paul said...

Kemp is on deck....

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mellis should just fuck with them and swing.

Paul said...

If the bunts works it is up to Dre. Not sure about this.

Spank Lapierre said...

Ooooooo I almost shit my pants with that wild throw.

Orel said...

If we don't score here, we don't deserve to win.

NicJ said...

That bunt was pointless.

Walk kemp and bring in the lefty

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least there was no double play on that one.

Orel said...

Coming up...Rancho Ardiendo.

Spank Lapierre said...

Smart Mattingly.

Orel said...

Hey, I hear Ethier can't hit lefties.

Paul said...

Ellis should have defaulted.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like where this is going.

NicJ said...

Ether is going to try and jump on the first pitch.

Paul said...

Okay fuck that bunt. But get a hit Dre!!

NicJ said...

Ethier*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Stadium looks nicely filled out for a Tuesday night.

Spank Lapierre said...

Lakers playing like crappy crap.

NicJ said...

Dylan didn't think so.

Spank Lapierre said...

Let's go 'Dre!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was no strike.

Paul said...

Crap.

NicJ said...

Toast
