Game 62 Thread: June 11 vs. Angels, 7p

Chris Capuano (8-2, 2.82) vs. Garrett Richards (1-0, 1.13)

Welcome to LOS ANGELES, Angels! Let us know if you need directions to anything as we know you are unfamiliar with LOS ANGELES. We're glad to have you here and we hope you enjoy your stay.

Last week, Richards filled in for the injured Jered Weaver and earned his first career win by going eight innings over the Mariners (4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 8 Ks). Let's hope that win was his last. Dodgers return from what most would consider a successful road trip, having gone 7-3 and swept the Phillies after getting off to a rocky start in Denver. But the visiting road team Angels have a head of steam themselves, seeming to have righted their ship after a poor start to the season. Angels now stand at three games over .500 and three games back of AL West-leading Rangers. Let's put a stop to their momentum now and send them all the way back home!

Sax's note: Mrs. Sax and I really need two more Dodgers t-shirts, so we will be there tonight! Oh yeah, and GO KINGS!!!

The Angels have started hitting. I don't think I care for that.

Orel said...

Uribe up, Castellanos down.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*checks fantasy roster*

...except Trumbo!

Orel said...

*checks fantasy roster*

What about Pujols and Trout?

Franklin Stubbs said...

I saw that coming. Let's just hope Herrera finds a way to stay in the game.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@orel

Those guys can eat an ass.

Orel said...

Correction: Those guys can eat a first-place ass.

Orel said...

$400 gets you into tonight's Kings game

Franklin Stubbs said...

a First-place ass, but an ass none the less. (He said with absolutely no implied subtext whatsoever)

Dusty Baker said...

Speaking of implied subtext, I note Sax's note about Mrs. Sax and him needing two more shirts. I'm thinking that statement was only half right and likely met with some disagreement by one of the two parties.

Franklin Stubbs said...

The very notion strains credulity, Dusty.

Franklin Stubbs said...

$7.99 gets me beers to sit on my couch and watch tonight's Kings game.

Franklin Stubbs said...

...plus tax.

Orel said...

Down to $325.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's a lot of beers.

Dusty Baker said...

Are the Kings going to get it done tonight or what? I'm extremely nervous.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Dusty

What do you think the beers are for?

Orel said...

I'll be watching the Kings game via Gamecast/Twitter tonight. I do not expect it to be quite as scintillating as the live television experience.

Orel said...

Found a live stream. Sorry, work productivity.

Dusty Baker said...

There is an NHL app for iPhone and iPad and it has a live radio feed of the game.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's about time to pull the ripcord and get the hell out of the office for me.

Orel said...

The frustration continues.

Fred's Brim said...

there we go

Orel said...

KINGS SCORE!

Franklin Stubbs said...

w00t!

Fred's Brim said...

The Staples Forum is loud

Franklin Stubbs said...

Gotta love the long-ass power play. Keep up the pressure.

Fred's Brim said...

and again! 2-0!

Orel said...

KINGS SCORE! NOT A DUPLICATE COMMENT!

Fred's Brim said...

fuck your boarding!

Franklin Stubbs said...

SHIT, I gotta get out of here to see this go down.

Fred's Brim said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fred's Brim said...

FIGHT!

Fred's Brim said...

Devils are pissed and are playing for blood

MR.F said...

"NJ R. Carter (roughing - 2 min) served by P. Sykora"

I know nothing about hockey, but I'm pleased that R. Carter got served!

Fred's Brim said...

"What a night of pain"

Fred's Brim said...

jazz bassist Ron Carter?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Becks looking particularly scruffy.

Franklin Stubbs said...

In a golden god sort of way.

Fred's Brim said...

Devils finally get one

Franklin Stubbs said...

Got one back. Damn.

Orel said...

There goes the shutout.

MR.F said...

SCORE 5 MORE TO COUNTERACT THAT! SHOW NO MERCY!@!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Vin calling that one with his heart

Fred's Brim said...

Holy shit was that a bad throw! Elian scores from second!

Spank Mathijsen said...

@ karina 6:02pm

*blushes*

Fred's Brim said...

terrible pickoff from Richards at second goes into center, Trout fumbles it and Elian never stops and beats the throw but a couple of steps

MR.F said...

Yay 2-0.

Spank Mathijsen said...

I never fumble a trout.

MR.F said...

Loney doesn't ground out! He pops out.

Fred's Brim said...

James Loneys

Fred's Brim said...

@karina: Callaspo, si o no?

Fred's Brim said...

Capuano can't handle the bunt

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim: Callaspo no

Fred's Brim said...

Dee nearly catches the soft liner.
looked like it was slicing away from him. 1st and 2nd for Richards

Orel said...

Empty net goal! 5-1 Kings! 3:45 left!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Make that 6-1!

Orel said...

Piling on! 6-1 Kings! 3:30 left!

Fred's Brim said...

heh Vin: "LA is quite a town. We have the Angels and Devils here in town. Then again, that might be every day..."

Fred's Brim said...

Cap gets Richards, 2 outs

Franklin Stubbs said...

1 minute to go!

Indeed. Congrats to the hard-core fans, and thanks for letting us come along for the ride.

karina said...

I wonder if El Montanero is running around naked

Fred's Brim said...

MR.F said...

Fred's Brim said...

AJ Ellises

karina said...

Fred's Brim said...

Neeebs took off a piece of clothing for every goal scored

Fred's Brim said...

He started the game in just his boxers

Spank Mathijsen said...

You took the words right out of my mouth,Stubbsy. Congrats to the hardcore Kings fans. Too bad I'm a Quebec fan. Nordique4lyfe,yo!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Spank Mathijsen said...

My comments are disappearing!

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

DO NOT CENSOR SPANK!!!

Spank Mathijsen said...

WTF?!!

Orel said...

MAIN PAGE UPDATED!

Fred's Brim said...

Cap makes him work anyway

Spank Mathijsen said...

Right now Neeebs and Beefpile are dry humping each other.

Fred's Brim said...

TonyNotChris!

Fred's Brim said...

Capuano might be the leanest dude in the majors

Fred's Brim said...

Jerry with the shift gets Pujols

Fred's Brim said...

Vin with some nice words for Bob Miller

karina said...

James Loney is hitting better than Pujols, who would have thought it?

Fred's Brim said...

Trumbo with a chopper that somehow gets through

Fred's Brim said...

@karina - you!

Fred's Brim said...

Capuano not interested in pitching to Howard

Fred's Brim said...

Capuano not interested in throwing strikes

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Cap, finish this!

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

MR.F said...

D'oh, another walk =/

Fred's Brim said...

Cap gets the close force to second

Fred's Brim said...

phew

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hope the bullpen is limber. Cap is walking the tightrope.

Fred's Brim said...

Dee with the double!

Fred's Brim said...

stupid bunts and fake bunts

Fred's Brim said...

Dee tags his way to third!

Fred's Brim said...

Herrera hit it well but right at Trout

Fred's Brim said...

take your time, Dre

Fred's Brim said...

ugh - that was no good, Dre

Franklin Stubbs said...

I want that run, dammit!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Nope.

Fred's Brim said...

shit - a WO

Fred's Brim said...

I didn't like that

Fred's Brim said...

OK SOSGers and SOSGettes, I need bed. Enjoy the fish swinging and cup ringing! Let's cap it with a Dodger win!

MR.F said...

Another walk!!! =/

Franklin Stubbs said...

That pick-off looms large.

Steve Sax said...

Glove on the damn ball Herrera

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ellis Ellises again.

Orel said...

Hmmm, another AWO.

Orel said...

Eric Smith tweets: "In lineup announcement and first at-bat I brilliantly referred to @MarkTrumbo as Mike. #genius"

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, fer fuck's sake.

Orel said...

Wow, really? Bobby hits Dee for the third out?

Orel said...

Cap out, 'blom in.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Balls

Orel said...

Dammit, tie game. Why does nothing ever go right for Los Angeles teams?

Steve Sax said...

Dammit

Franklin Stubbs said...

No championships in the last hour = failure

Orel said...

Okay, Mike Trout, you can stop helping me beat Stubbs now.

Steve Sax said...

I still don't understand why DeeGordon wasn't watching where that ball was hit

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yes, Mike Trout. Please stop that.

Franklin Stubbs said...

AJ is terrible at making outs.

MR.F said...

Okay, back from my shower. Come on guys!

Franklin Stubbs said...

When's the due date, Mr. F?

Orel said...

Like I said, Stubbs is on fire!

Hideo Nomo said...

Eh, he was safe.

Hideo Nomo said...

Nothing has changed re: Pujols and the Dodgers. He's still wearing red and we still see him six times a year. (Maybe even more next year.)

Franklin Stubbs said...

Utjd!

Orel said...

Angels give a DP back!

Orel said...

@JonHeymanCBS: "sources: Andre Ethier & Dodgers are close to completing contract extension. deal is $85M over 5 years. http://tinyurl.com/7km4awf"

Franklin Stubbs said...

@orel

I'm storing up karma for the upcoming PCS. I suspect it to be "a bitch", as the kids say.

MR.F said...

I hate due dates, Franklin!!!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

Heyman can be kind of an idjit, but he's usually spot on when it comes to deals.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's why you use protection.

Orel said...

(arm falls off)

Spank Mathijsen said...

I guess i should be happy that The Dish will let me watch the last three innings of the game.

#bastards

Spank Mathijsen said...

I guess i should be happy that Blogger ain't censoring me anymore.

#assholes

Franklin Stubbs said...

I need another win today. Because I am a greedy, greedy bastard.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Epale!

Franklin Stubbs said...

I support Spank's god-given right to tear shit up in here.

Franklin Stubbs said...

These close games with Anaheim make me twitchy.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ok. I don't want to play a full 9th, so go out there and get it.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That windup is one of the balkiest non-balk deliveries I've ever seen.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Chuy!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Earn your money,Dre!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Alright Dre, you streaky mofo. I want runs!

Orel said...

IDJ rewards the Dodgers for not sending him down to the minors by opening the eighth with a single.

Spank Mathijsen said...

You know your fantasy team sucks when Loney is leading your team in hits with one.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Piss.

Spank Mathijsen said...

That was not good,Dre.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Goddamn that was ugly.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Thank you Dish Network for blacking the rest of the game out.

Shit.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Well goddamn,I gots the Angel feed now. Seriously I can't handle all this emotion.

DelinO said...

Have no fear DelinO is here

DelinO said...

I still smell of Victory. Go Kings!

DelinO said...

Don't F with DeJesus
