Game 60 Thread: June 9 @ Mariners, 4:15p

Clayton Kershaw (4-3, 2.55 ERA) vs. Jason Vargas (7-4, 3.64 ERA)

The Mariners' bullpen was the clown car of last night's circus. They just kept coming, but the hits never did. In the end, it was the Dodgers who got clowned. With Kershaw taking the mound, we hope to make less of a spectacle of ourselves this afternoon.

We're going to use all those hits we saved up yesterday, right, lads?

I am wandering the streets of Seattle!

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 1-0 B4

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

I was supposed to be at this game :(

Dusty Baker said...

"They just kept coming, but the hits never did."

This sums up Flaming Menudos' career arc.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

Union Rags wins the Belmont, just edging out the horse my money was on.

Jason said...

At Safeco. Haven't found Paul yet but I did snap a shot of a guy in a Garvey jersey. Hell, it could have been Garvey.

Dusty Baker said...

Dry hump Paul for me when you see him, Jason.

Jason said...

Will do, DB.

Just made it on the Jumbotron. Paul, consider that a smoke signal.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Oh goddamnit! You suck,Eric Collins.

Hideo Nomo said...

I thought we'd be spared from listening to Collins today. WTF, FOX?!

Spank Mathijsen said...

No hitter broken up.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Spank Mathijsen said...

SpeeDee flies to second base.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Dre hasn't hit a homer in a while me thinks. I could be wrong.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dre has a bat on his bat.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Dre walks.

2 on 2 out

Hideo Nomo said...

Button your jersey, asshole.

Spank Mathijsen said...

WTF is a yunker?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Three run jack for Hairston!

Hideo Nomo said...

JERRYYYYYYY!!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

Jerry Hairston says "Fuck your no-hitter."

Spank Mathijsen said...

No vale dick,Vergas.

Steve Sax said...

Conversation with my daughter:

"well, I hope the other team gets no hits tonight, so THEY can see how it feels."

You heard the girl, Clayton.

karina said...

epale everyone!

Fred's Brim said...

JHJ!

Fred's Brim said...

Saxy's daughter holds no quarter!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Plantar fasciitis. Is that an Italian peanut?

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Clayton

karina said...

Spank Mathijsen said...

man on second and third one out for the supersonics

Fred's Brim said...

finish this, Clayton

Spank Mathijsen said...

Nasty pitch Kid K.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Clayton!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Mmmm. High heat from the Kid gets him out of the inning.

Fred's Brim said...

AJ gets us going

Fred's Brim said...

Tone keeps us going

Spank Mathijsen said...

Ajellis and TGJr with back to back singles.

Fred's Brim said...

Alexis Ks

Spank Mathijsen said...

Damn.

Fred's Brim said...

sheesh - Dee GIDP

Fred's Brim said...

GIDeeP?

Orel said...

Well-hit by Dee, good DP by the Mariners.

Orel said...

Kemp talking trash about playing basketball against Magic!

Fred's Brim said...

nice inning, Clayton

Fred's Brim said...

another leadoff single

Orel said...

Surprised Ichiro didn't get to Herrera's sinking liner.

Orel said...

Giants beat the Rangers.

Orel said...

Fox is having technical issues.

Orel said...

Herrera SB!

Fred's Brim said...

Elian steals second

Orel said...

Vargas at 60 pitches. 3rd inning.

Orel said...

JHJ RBI-double! 4-0 Dodgers!

Fred's Brim said...

JHJ!!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Hairston again!

4-0 Dodgers.

Fred's Brim said...

let's go, James, keep this going

Orel said...

Karros saying Vargas should have pitched around JHJ to get to Loney. Not a lot of love between Dodger first-basemen.

Orel said...

Loney RBI-single! 5-0 Dodgers!

Fred's Brim said...

James keeps this going!

Spank Mathijsen said...

loney?

Orel said...

loney!

Fred's Brim said...

I never knew EK to be the jealous type

Spank Mathijsen said...

dumb loney.

Orel said...

Loney CS. Why the hell was he going?

Fred's Brim said...

caught stealing or pickoff?

Jason said...

A beach ball just made an appearance. It's like a home game for the Dodgers here tonight.

Orel said...

SB attempt, terrible feet-first slide. Stopped a foot before the bag.

Orel said...

KKKKKK

Orel said...

KKKKKKK

Spank Mathijsen said...

Musical Youth will be singing the national anthem in New Jersey.

Jason said...

Kerahaw has recorded 7 of 9 outs by strikeout tonight. Kid is dealing, he's hit 99 on the in-stadium gun.

Orel said...

Here we go, Kings!

Orel said...

Are the Dodger fans at Safeco loud, Jason?

Orel said...

DAMN CROSSBAR

Spank Mathijsen said...

Ooo goddamm. hit the post.

Steve Sax said...

I'm not watching right now. Wtf is Lones doing stealing?

Orel said...

A.J. legged out a single!

Orel said...

Devils getting a lot of SOGs.

Steve Sax said...

Jason, is that you I hear singing the harmony with "I Live Rock and Roll"?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Furious first five minutes of the hockey game.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers getting a lot of SoSGers.

Orel said...

Argh, so close.

Orel said...

Whew! Devils miss the pass right in front of Quick.

Steve Sax said...

Charley has an Ichiro mancrush. But then, who doesn't?

Fred's Brim said...

Seager works a walk, 2 on, one out

Orel said...

Kershaw follows a single with a walk.

Steve Sax said...

I need a tv out here by the grill

Fred's Brim said...

jesus c - another homer?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Shut up Devil fans. It was a clean hit.

Steve Sax said...

Shit. 5-3 LA

Fred's Brim said...

is Clayton's foot to blame for all of the homers this year?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Damn Kid. Compose yourself.

Orel said...

Yikes, Kershaw allows the 3-run jack to Olivo. 5-3 Dodgers.

Orel said...

Worried about Kershaw's foot. Every time a player insists an injury isn't bothering them, it's bothering them.

karina said...

Chile 2-Venezuela 0

Go Dodgers! go Kings!

Steve Sax said...

Red Hook IPA #2

Spank Mathijsen said...

Dang. Are the Kings playing with an extra player?

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton strikes out two more to end the inning

Steve Sax said...

Shit. 5-3 dodgers through 4

Orel said...

Devils PP.

Fred's Brim said...

Devils PP in my coke

Orel said...

Celtics-Heat starting. I need a third channel!

Orel said...

FUCK

Spank Mathijsen said...

That was dumb Quick.

karina said...

the Devils just scored...

Fred's Brim said...

Elian singles again

Orel said...

That was Quick's fault. Couldn't clear the puck from behind the net. Shit.

Orel said...

C'mon Kings, strike back!

Fred's Brim said...

Rivera pops out
Dre is due

Steve Sax said...

Dre is drained

Fred's Brim said...

with this game on stupid Fox, I can't even see any highlight videos during the game

Steve Sax said...

Ok Herrera, start running

Fred's Brim said...

Dre should be reminded that this is a contract year

Steve Sax said...

Fuck, Dre. You're hitting like Kemp's pressure is all on your shoulders or something.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Clayton, clean inning please

Steve Sax said...

Moved to the Chalone Pinot Blanc

Steve Sax said...

Kemp should be reminded this is Dre's contract year...

Steve Sax said...

Goddammit, there's a fly in my Pinot blanc. Fuck you, Alanis.

Fred's Brim said...

I like that

Fred's Brim said...

Have Jason and Paul found each other yet?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Shit. Gotta wash the vehicle and drink some booze. Hope i make it back to the GT.

Jason said...

@Orel - Yes, loud Dodger fan contingent here tonight. Plenty of lets go Dodgers chants plus - unfortunately - a few more beach balls. As Vin would say, its a mystery why anyone would think to bring a beach ball to the ballpark.

@Sax - That was my boss who is (surprisingly) sitting next to me.

Still no Paul sighting. If he reads this, remember: Elysian Fields across from the football stadium in the morning. Bring your drinking shoes.

Orel said...

So I assume there are no beach balls at Safeco when other teams are visiting? We'll know it's really bad if they start the wave.

Fred's Brim said...

AJ out on one pitch? Huh?

Orel said...

Celtics up 6 near the end of the 1st quarter.

Orel said...

Collins tells us that was only the eighth time this year A.J. has swung on the first pitch.

Fred's Brim said...

Shit, Jesus Colorado Montero hit by pitch

Jason said...

Jesus Montero's walk up music: Jesus Walks. Taking cues from A.J.?

Orel said...

Love that the Nats are owning Boston.

Fred's Brim said...

Mike Breen talking about the Celtics' Greg Stiemsma's case of plantar fasciitis and how he can't practice or even do shootarounds because it hurts so badly.

Jason said...

That HBP sounded nasty in person. I'm 40 feet from home plate and it sounded like the bone cracked.

Fred's Brim said...

i wonder how bad Clayton's case really is

Orel said...

LeBron huge block on Rondo!

Fred's Brim said...

Cs up 4 over the Heats after 1

Orel said...

Clayton pickoff!

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton picks off Montero!

Orel said...

...followed by a walk.

Fred's Brim said...

but Clayton loses Seager

Jason said...

@Orel - I've never seen a beach ball here in the 3 years I've been coming to games.

The wave is guaranteed to happen. Seattle people are perversely proud that the wave was "invented" at a University of Washington football game. Personally, I think that is grounds for UW to lose their status as a university.

Fred's Brim said...

and Olivo pops out to end the inning
Clayton up to 102 pitches

Cliff Beefpile said...

Coming over for a bit of a distraction...this evening is gonna be one long, constant anxiety attack for me.

Fred's Brim said...

Stay strong (and drunk), Cliffy!

Fred's Brim said...

Alexis with a hit

Fred's Brim said...

Wondering if he goes down when Uribe comes back

Orel said...

KINGS SCORE!

karina said...

Kings tie the game!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck yeah Kings!!!

Orel said...

OH SO CLOSE!

Fred's Brim said...

GIDeeP x 2. Not sure what's going on here

Fred's Brim said...

that's our third today

Orel said...

Jonathan Quick is so good he has to score for the other team.

Orel said...

SHIT Devils score again.

Jason said...

Just ran into a guy wearing am Eric Dickerson LA Rams jersey. Hard core travelers here tonight.

Orel said...

Shot deflects off Voynov into the net. Hockey karma rebalancing itself?

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton Ks his 12th on his 117th pitch

Orel said...

Kings PP! Take advantage!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck no Kings!!!!!

Orel said...

FUCK! Brodeur blocks a point-blank shot from Williams!

Orel said...

1:00 left on the PP.

Jason said...

Wave just started. Damn you, Orel.

Orel said...

Stoll's tennis shot called off.

Orel said...

Kings attacking the goal. One of these has got to land.

Orel said...

You're welcome, Jason!

Dusty Baker said...

Sports overload.

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

Elian Ks after getting up 3-0

Orel said...

Back in Seattle, we sure could use some Geico.

Orel said...

Celtics up by 11. Great.

Fred's Brim said...

Rivera with a single, DreH up

Orel said...

Get out of there, Wedge!

Orel said...

How much will L.A. be gripping if the Kings lose tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

Dre pops out

Fred's Brim said...

pitcher 4 for the Mariners

Fred's Brim said...

JHJ!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Jerry doubles and Rivera scores from first

Fred's Brim said...

keep us going, James

Steve Sax said...

6-3 yeah

Fred's Brim said...

Loney draws 2 intentional balls, 1st and 2nd, 2 outs, AJ up to hopefully keep this going

Fred's Brim said...

Cs up 7 at the half

Steve Sax said...

Let's go AJ

Fred's Brim said...

AJ strikes out on three pitches

Steve Sax said...

Collins just called him "A Jellis"!
He's must read SoSG!

Jason said...

Belli in

karina said...

@Dusty sports overload? today I've watched 4 different sports, 5 games and a classificatory race for the GP tomorrow

Orel said...

Another Kings PP!

Fred's Brim said...

two games at intermission, Dodgers game to get 20 minutes of consecutive attention

Fred's Brim said...

Crap - Belli walks Carp

Fred's Brim said...

Belli K's Montero on three pitches

Fred's Brim said...

Smoak flies out. Nice work, Belli

Orel said...

"I may have retired from the game, but not from mumbling." —Shaq

Orel said...

@dodgerfan_net: "Mike Carp's uncle is sitting behind me. He's wearing Dodger gear and getting a ton of crap from the SEA fans."

Fred's Brim said...

Tone leads off with a single
