Game 32 Thread: May 11 vs. Rockies, 7p

Chris Capuano (4-0, 2.21) vs. Jamie Moyer (pictured above; 1-2, 4.01).

Capuano, who shares the team lead with Ted Lilly for wins, trails Lilly's rotation-leading ERA by a little less than a run. I can't believe I just wrote that last sentence. But anyway, Capster's pleasantly-surprising start has been impressive to date. He's gotten into the sixth inning in all of his starts but the first one, and he's been reasonably economical in his pitch count, staying under 110 pitches in each of his six starts this year. But Capster has never faced off against...Hans Moleman! (Actually, I have no idea if Capuano has ever faced off against Jamie Moyer--I think the answer is "no", but I don't know for sure.) Can Cap fight off the guy with the wrinkly face? I hope so.

Oh, and SoSG Alex Cora will be in attendance tonight (field level, third base side), trying to see if he can extend the SoSG attendance streak to 9-0. No pressure, AC.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The DC streak stops at 1.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hairston goes to the DL, Sellers gets the call. Free tattoos for everyone!

Hideo Nomo said...

Here you go, Marla: A DC-centric image relevant to tonight's pitching matchup.

Eugenio's Streak said...

is AJ out?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

AJ is such a crappy catcher, he needs two straight days of rest.

karina said...

epale everyone!

karina said...

btw, not tonight Cargo, ok?

in the other hand, Comedulce (Bob Abreu) go and smash'em!

NicJ said...

Clippers with the 6pm friday start? Brutal.

Hideo Nomo said...

Too late, K. You mentioned Cargo's name, which automatically switches him into God Mode.

Dusty Baker said...

Juan Rivera ruptured hamstring. Dammit.

Dusty Baker said...

MDIL claims Cap usually pitches to Treanor.

Franklin Stubbs said...

On my own damn sofa, at long last, Vinny!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Marco Scutaro is leading off for the Rockies? How did people think these guys would be better than us?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There are no bats in the Rockies' lineup besides CarGo. Even Tulo has had a pedestrian season so far.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Of course, that just means Tulo will murder us.

Dusty Baker said...

Making a gin and tonic, Vinny!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ha! I'll take that!

Hideo Nomo said...

See what I mean?

Paul said...

I think Dee should bunt.

karina said...

Nomo, it ain't so *blushes*crosses fingers*

Paul said...

See knew it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MELLIS POWER

Franklin Stubbs said...

OLD MAN ELLIS!

Paul said...

Take that old man!

karina said...

wow, listening to Vin narrating a HR!

Paul said...

I am starting to think Left field is cursed. The curse of Mannywood starring Johnny Depp.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shit, Kemp.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was a weird inning.

Paul said...

Or maybe our GM signs old left fielders.

Paul said...

Listening to Vinny on a Friday night on the radio reminds me when I had to search stations to get a good Dodgers signal back in my childhood. . A Las Vegas station always came in good at night. In the day time good ol Visalia helped me get my Dodgers fix.

Dusty Baker said...

Hell yeah, Paul.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That AB was kind of sad.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Wow, the Angels are getting spanked.

Steve Sax said...

1-0 good guys

Steve Sax said...

If Moyer were 60 years old, we'd have this game

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bunts!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is sort of embarrassing.

Orel said...

Beer & Skittles reference!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Dre!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bobby!

Steve Sax said...

Abreu breaks through!

2-0 Dodgers

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MELLIS DOIN WORK

Orel said...

Looks like the Clips are going to join the Lakers in playing a Game 7.

Dusty Baker said...

"In comes Treanor. In comes Capuano."

Don't hear that often.

Spank said...

I <3 Mellis

Spank said...

*squares around to drink booze*

Orel said...

Wow, Mellis with 3 RBIs.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dre!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Woot!

Dusty Baker said...

Dre making things happen!

Dusty Baker said...

Apodaca!

Had to be said.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck the Clippers.

Had to be said.

karina said...

*late love to Abreu "El Comedulce"*

i'm trying to get a cab :( it was supposed to be girls' night out :(

Orel said...

DreBI! 5-0 Dodgers!

karina said...

bring him in, Comedulce!

Orel said...

We want pictures, Karina!

karina said...

@Orel you'll have'em if I can make it :(

Dusty Baker said...

We wouldn't be standing you up if you were here, Karina.

karina said...

OT I love Josh Hamilton

cc Czar

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

55!

Dusty Baker said...

Can you drive 55, Marla?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

My car can only go 38

Orel said...

Another bullshit call!

Orel said...

ARI 5, SF 1, top 8

Hideo Nomo said...

Looked out on the replay. Loney didn't come off til he went by.

Paul said...

Hey I have a signle again! Hey we are winning by more!

Paul said...

Holy shit Cappuccino has been lights out again. Good for him.

Dusty Baker said...

Lot to like about this game so far.

Pastes over the things I don't like about it.

Paul said...

That was signal. Whatever autocorrect. Dutchbag.

Orel said...

Wow, Robert De Niro did a Time Warner commercial.

Paul said...

Whadya gonna do?

Paul said...

I am about to put on the Cutting Crew and get this party started.

Dusty Baker said...

I like Josh Hamilton's game.

I can't identify with his christianity or his sobriety, though.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shit!

Dusty Baker said...

Cap gives one up. 5-1

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like Cap will finish at seven innings.

Dusty Baker said...

Pulgas 0-3 tonight, hitting a cool .194.

Paul said...

Tad Hamilton is the better bunter.

Dusty Baker said...

This pass the mic GBA is kinda weird.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd love to win a date with Tad Hamilton.

Dusty Baker said...

The Clippers lost.

HA-ha!

Dusty Baker said...

Dre Day bishes!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Andre Motherfucking Ethier, ladies and gentlemen!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Andre really wants a big contract.

NicJ said...

Beast mode never sleeps.

Looks a little tired though.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp does look like he's moving better in the outfield, though, and it's a cool night.

NicJ said...

Andre uses dip? That's new isn't it?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess that's where the smokey flavor in his swing comes from.

Steve Sax said...

SF lost to the Snakes, 5-1. As of this second, they are 5.5 GB the Dodgers; 'Zona is 6.0 GB.

karina said...

everyone wants to win a date with Tad Hamilton, Dusty :)

NicJ said...

Imagine how good the Dodgers would be if they didn't have the worst fans in baseball.

CC: Hank Schulman

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Tad Hamilton gave me syphilis.

Dusty Baker said...

We need to start throwing at Colvin. This asshole needs a lesson.

NicJ said...

We Javy problem.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Javy can't pitch the 8th!

Hideo Nomo said...

Javy still kind of Javyish.

Dusty Baker said...

Was Dre dipping? Didn't notice. I know he's always gone through about 45 sacks of sunflower seeds per game. Are you sure he didn't just have a mouthful of those? Though that would be weird.

Dusty Baker said...

That's why he's pitching the 8th.

NicJ said...

Nah looks liked dip to me. I've noticed this year he switched from pumpkin to sunflower seeds though.

Can you imagine life before HD television.

NicJ said...

FUCK YOUR MOTHER CARGO!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

But hey, Elbert to the rescue!

Never thought I'd say that, either.

Surly factor: 7.5

Hideo Nomo said...

SUCK.
IT.
CARGO.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn straight, Nic. I'm going to quote you on that.

Steve Sax said...

Bryce Harper goes 0-for-5 in the Nationals' win tonight, lashes out in the dugout with a tantrum, and the bat comes back to hit him and gash him below the eye. He'll need stitches.

How will he paint the eye black now?

Dusty Baker said...

Cargo boom when I rig it with plastique.

karina said...

I said earlier "not tonight" :)

Dusty Baker said...

Are you serious, Sax? Wow.

I was listening to the whole game (CIN broadcast) and they never mentioned it but probably didn't have the view for what went down.

Pretty shitty given the fact that Nats totally dominated the game and got a solid win to keep pace.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, we're still winning!

Dusty Baker said...

URINE!!!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Uribe? Uribe.

NicJ said...

Figures he hits one out when the game is already over.

karina said...

I'll take that! awesome!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kevin Kennedy thinks Uribe is a great RBI guy.

NicJ said...

Coffey is for closers.

Steve Sax said...

And even Loney gets a single. Multi-hit game for Loney!

Steve Sax said...

7-1 Dodgers, B8

Hideo Nomo said...

I like to think I had something to do with Urine finally getting one. (See Twitter.)

Paul said...

Did I hear MVP chants after that Urine homerun?

Steve Sax said...

@NicJ, i love me the Mamet

Hideo Nomo said...

Prediction: Coffey will need help getting out of the 9th.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul. No, after Urine's HR, they were chanting "extra cheese"

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Wow, Urine and Loney putting up offense? What's going on around here?

Steve Sax said...

Gordon HR right here, to get ahead of Pujols again

Steve Sax said...

If dee gordon were a little faster, he'd have made that

karina said...

that's genius Nomo "uribenacci"

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Woody had gone to the police, Sax would have been arrested and I wouldn't have to deal with his constant hypotheticals.

NicJ said...

Predictions: Coffey will need help getting out of the bullpen gate.

Steve Sax said...

Bustin out the Asahi beer and edamame

karina said...

I'm more afraid of Helton than I am afraid of Cargo

Steve Sax said...

@NicJ 9:39p: on second thought, you may have had an extra "c" in that last word there

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think Helton is older than Moyer. #MarkGraceTime

karina said...

here comes the gidp

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's a nice snag

Steve Sax said...

Nice catch andre

Hideo Nomo said...

Hurry this up, guys. I have tickets to see Avengers again.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck Gnomes, save some seats for me

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Don't do it, Nomo, it's a trick!

Paul said...

Damn you.

karina said...

why can't it be easy?

Steve Sax said...

Coffey sure does take up a lot of space on this roster.

Steve Sax said...

It would be nice to have a couple of arms in the pen.

Steve Sax said...

I miss seeing Dan the Del Taco guy

NicJ said...

Dotel might be available.

Paul said...

We make party!!! Not you Belly.

Steve Sax said...

Dan!

Steve Sax said...

Dotel. That's rich.

So is Dotel.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Big Crapuccino does it again

Steve Sax said...

We winnnnnnnnn

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We win!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Capuano now 5-0 despite big Crapuccino trying to give the game away.

NicJ said...

At least he wasn't a walkiatto.


Amirite?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Good win fellas

Dusty Baker said...

PGT up!

NicJ said...

Needs more Van Slyke.
