Game 63 Thread: June 12 vs. Angels, 7p


Aaron Harang (5-3, 3.95 ERA) vs. Jerome Williams (6-3, 4.02 ERA)

It's Opposing Manager Bobblehead Night! (The first of two this season, actually.) I wonder what kind of bad juju can come about from thousands of mini-Scioscias lurking about the stadium. He looks pretty good in Blue, though. Better than this, anyway. That one looks like it isn't blocking any plates, if you know what I mean.

Speaking of eating, the Dodgers are still hungry for a home win, after losing five straight. Last night, they got a heaping helping of Trout instead.

Let's hope Williams is serving meatballs tonight.

Not going to be able to make it out tonight. Boo unused tickets on a bobblehead night!

Eugenio's Streak said...

Mrs Eugenio will be there, I had to work :-(

Eugenio's Streak said...

To explain how awesome Mrs Eugenio is: Last night, I was randomly handed two sneak tix to the movie Rock of Ages. She wants to see this, I showed her the tix, she looked at me and said, we can go Friday, Stanly Cup and Freeway series tonight....

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty and MDIL were the same way last night. They were singularly focused on hockey and baseball.

Jason said...

Fragíle? It must be French!

MR.F said...

The F in Mr. F stands for fragile.

MR.F said...

Dre Deal is official!

Eugenio's Streak said...

I thought Mr. F stood for Mentally Retarded Female...

I miss Arrested Development

MR.F said...

It can stand for more than one thing!!

Alex said...

I'll be at the yard tonight loge-ing it up!

Let's get a dub-yuh!

Dusty Baker said...

It absolutely does not stand for Fan R. Man.

Orel said...

I hear fan.r.man hangs with will.i.am.

Dusty Baker said...

Hearing that the Stanley Cup will be in the Yard tomorrow night!

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Dusty

AWESOME! Perhaps the ultimate highlight of an already fantastic day today? Hearing Vinny call into ESPN while Bob Miller was being interviewed to congratulate him on the Cup win. Turns out, Clark Griswold was right, you actually can be so happy as to be whistling "Zippity Doo Dah" out of your asshole.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Danny fucking Kaye!

Hideo Nomo said...

Oooh. Nomo will be in the yard too.

Or maybe I am the Stanley Cup.

Hideo Nomo said...

Tomorrow, I mean.

karina said...

if Mauer and Morneau are the M&M boys, Ethier and Kemp should have a nickname, like the Beauty and the Beast, something!

*i know i suck at giving names*

Spank Mathijsen said...

Rizolli and Isles?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Franklin and Stubbs

Spank Mathijsen said...

Hurting Crew. Because they are either kicking ass or injured.

karina said...

that's a great one, Spank!

epale everyone!

Spank Mathijsen said...

SpeeDee with the leadoff single,yo.

Spank Mathijsen said...

SpeeDee with the leadoff stolen base,yo.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Ajellis with the leadoff strikeout,yo.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Ok karina. Rizolli and Isles it is.

Spank Mathijsen said...

That sucked. Dee on second with no out and we can't get him home.

#BOOOOOOOO!

Orel said...

Gonna be a long night. This enormous trout will devour us all.

Spank Mathijsen said...

For a second straight year I won't be watching one second of the NBA Finals.

#FuckLeBron

Hideo Nomo said...

Has Spank ever run naked while holding Mike Trout?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Watch your language,Nomo. This is a family friendly site.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Mike Trout. Tim Salmon. I think the Angels have more of an infatuation with fish than I do.

MR.F said...

Fish is for sport only, not eating. Fish meat is practically a vegetable.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Kennedy sucks

Spank Mathijsen said...

Dee Gordon, SS
A.J. Ellis, C
Andre Ethier, RF
Juan Rivera, 1B
Bobby Abreu, LF
Adam Kennedy, 2B
Juan Uribe, 3B
Tony Gwynn Jr., CF
Aaron Harang, P

Spank Mathijsen said...

Rainbow Trout made an out.

Dusty Baker said...

Right on, Harang! You've got these guys just where you want them: bases loaded and you're sucking.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus fucking christ AK. You make Uribe look smooth.

Orel said...

Adam Kennedy: always an Angel

Spank Mathijsen said...

40...oz!

Spank Mathijsen said...

We got a run and i don't know how.

Spank Mathijsen said...

AK just killed the inning

NicJ said...

Kennedy was a bad choice.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Sit your fucking ass down,Pulgas!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

46

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

The Heatles are so getting swept

Dusty Baker said...

I feel some misplaced hate coming on. When is Pulgas up next?

Spank Mathijsen said...

Take a flea dip,Pulgas!

Steve Sax said...

Angels threatening in the sixth

Steve Sax said...

Sax in the Stadium tomorrow

Orel said...

Thunder win!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Fucking stupid ass play dumb fucks. Now bases are loaded.

Spank Mathijsen said...

More dumb shit.

FUCK!

*kicks in tv screen*

Spank Mathijsen said...

Goddamnit!

NicJ said...

Fuck Kennedy!!! Throw to first!!! It's a pitcher running!!!

Steve Sax said...

What the fuck, Dee

Orel said...

Way to bring it, defense!

Steve Sax said...

Harang rattled

Fred's Brim said...

unacfuckingceptable

Dusty Baker said...

Throw it to fucking first, blue!

I don't put that one on Dee.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Why is Kennedy playing again?

Fred's Brim said...

who should we blame? Kennedy or Uribe?

Dusty Baker said...

I blame global warming.

Fred's Brim said...

Hairston should dispose of Kennedy somehow

Orel said...

The Mighty Trout has struck out!

Fred's Brim said...

big whiffah, no hittah

and no defense

Dusty Baker said...

I want to gut AK like a fucking trout.

Cook him up with a little butter and lemon.

Fred's Brim said...

Harang looks tired of this shit

Fred's Brim said...

@Dusty and then feed him to the cats

Fred's Brim said...

Nice job, Dee

Fred's Brim said...

Dee if you get thrown out, I am going to bed

Fred's Brim said...

AJ, be AJ, even though you are batting second

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

Dusty Baker said...

COme on, Dre. Earn it!

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, AJ, give Mattingly a reason to keep you in the second spot

Dusty Baker said...

I hateHateHATE this little fucking shitheel fish mouth ass bitch.

Except for fantasy baseball purposes.

Fred's Brim said...

of course

Fred's Brim said...

Is Trout from Venezuela? That would explain a lot

Fred's Brim said...

sorry karina, but Venezuelan players seem to kill us

they also help us (Bobby) but not as much as they kill us

Fred's Brim said...

I can't wait for Matty to get back

Fred's Brim said...

Looks like the Eric Karros bobblehead can be reused for the Shawn Green bobblehead, just switch the batting stance

Dusty Baker said...

Get this tiny little minnow out.

Dusty Baker said...

The EK bobble should be more like a Chia and grow a huge mane of hair.

Fred's Brim said...

CALL THAT, BLUE!

Dusty Baker said...

Right on, $85mil man!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

DRE!

Fred's Brim said...

Harang through 7 with only 2 stupid runs

Dusty Baker said...

Hurry dis shit up already!

Steve Sax said...

Why

God

America

Sooooooooo

Slow

Steve Sax said...

Nancy Bea just fell asleep on the keyboard

Fred's Brim said...

de

Dusty Baker said...

I want to gut that GBM lady like a trout and feed her to the cats.

Fred's Brim said...

stupid errors

Fred's Brim said...

(still mad)

Fred's Brim said...

the cats are getting plump

Fred's Brim said...

I assume Spank has a pack of cats running after him constantly

Fred's Brim said...

Call him Riff Raff

Dusty Baker said...

There are indeed a bunch of fat pussies running around here.

Fred's Brim said...

nice try, Kennedy
get DFAed, jerk

Fred's Brim said...

jesus C, Uribe

Paul said...

Uuuuuusuck.

Fred's Brim said...

Paul, have you recovered from Seattle?

Fred's Brim said...

YES Elian/Wright replace Kennedy

Paul said...

My liver is still floating in alcohol. This game is making me want to keep it that way.

Fred's Brim said...

pickle that!

Fred's Brim said...

there is some crazy movement on Wright's pitches

Paul said...

I am just glad I didn't have to see Uribe try to hit. I did get to see twenty five Juan Rivera infield pop ups.

Dusty Baker said...

55,279

Suck it, Dylan Hernandez!

Fred's Brim said...

Kennedy looks like Paul's liver

Fred's Brim said...

Dylan will tweet tonight's attendance on Thursday

Paul said...

Just need to play the Angels every game at home to get that attendance up.

Fred's Brim said...

Good inning, Jamey
Nice play, Juan

Paul said...

@FB

My liver is insulted. It will drink it off.

Dusty Baker said...

Dylan will tweet a link to someone else's reporting on the attendance. On Thursday.

Fred's Brim said...

take your time, Tone

Fred's Brim said...

Let's get this fake-ass Livan Hernandez tub of goo

Fred's Brim said...

take three pitches, Elian

Paul said...

Why don't you do what you do when you did what you did to us Jerome?

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Elian
No double plays, Dee

Dusty Baker said...

This is small ball. Very, very small ball. I haven't seen a swing in five minutes.

Fred's Brim said...

Dee needs some bunting practice

Fred's Brim said...

if you are going to try to bunt, do it right

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, why can't we hit against the Angels?

Paul said...

Throw the ball Jerome!

Steve Sax said...

Dee, do not hit it to the guys in red

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Elian - go in Mark Ellis style!

Spank Mathijsen said...

That was a weak argument,Skoschia

Dusty Baker said...

Sets up a great situation whereby the crowd can boo Scioscia for arguing with the call on the night he is honored with a bobble head.

Steve Sax said...

Now would be a nice time to celebrate that new contract, Dre

Spank Mathijsen said...

We need a Dre Day. Come on you fucker. Earn your snaps.

Dusty Baker said...

Here comes the Butcher of Anaheim.

Paul said...

I have a good feeling about this.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Suck it up Dre!

Dusty Baker said...

DRE DAY!

Paul said...

Nice!!!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Yes

Steve Sax said...

Great signing, Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

Ned just unpuckered a little bit.

So did I.

Orel said...

Dre!

Dusty Baker said...

SHE IS GONE!!!!

Steve Sax said...

@Spank 9:41p: I totally agree. Mike was so not Lincoln-Douglass there

Paul said...

Holy Hell!!!

Spank Mathijsen said...

Woo Hoo!!!!

You motherfucker!!!

Steve Sax said...

Finally!!!

Dusty Baker said...

BAMSUCKA!

Steve Sax said...

Rivera knew as soon as it left the bat

Orel said...

JUAN!

Steve Sax said...

That was pretty huge.

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

lol, i'm watching the Angel broadcast for some reason.....these guys are boring as hell but not as annoying as Lyons and Collins.

Think it's time to put up my Dodger flag in front of my house, there's a guy across the street who has the Patriots and Angels logos on his truck :P

Dusty Baker said...

@DKG

I think it's time to shit in that guy's truckbed.

Spank Mathijsen said...

That was ,should I dare say it,Amazing.

Steve Sax said...

Is AT&T Uverse really using Gloria Estefan in its ads?

I can think of 1,2,3,4 reasons why that is so stupid

Dusty Baker said...

Give us a cry, Jerome!

Steve Sax said...

@DKotG: make sure there's not a "insured by Smith and Wesson" bumper sticker on that truck

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

lol sometimes he parks it in front of our house

These Angel guys still whining about the blown call at 2B

Steve Sax said...

Callasp-O

"a glove full of empty", as Vin put it

Dusty Baker said...

Great night for Dre to hit his 500th RBI.

Steve Sax said...

Abreu out by two zip codes. Is Loney coaching him?

Steve Sax said...

Is Sharon Tay wearing pants?

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

The Twins beat the Philthies

Steve Sax said...

5-2 going to the ninth, but I don't feel safe

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey guys, what's going on?

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 4-2, T8

Steve Sax said...

Gnomes!

Dusty Baker said...

You're one not being around here tonight mofo, Nomo. What gives?

Steve Sax said...

Glub glub glub (Trout)

Hideo Nomo said...

Had to run errands. The exciting life of a Son.

Fred's Brim said...

Just catching up: that eighth was awesome!

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Kenley, make it a clean one

Hideo Nomo said...

BWAHAHAHA.

Dusty Baker said...

I haven't seen the Dodger Blue to angel red ratio this skewed toward Blue at a game in a long time.

Spank Mathijsen said...

Fuck Pulgas! Strike this mofo out!

Fred's Brim said...

woop! two down

Hideo Nomo said...

Seems like Pooholes always comes up in the ninth when we face him.

Dusty Baker said...

We make LOS ANGELES party!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

GWYNNED

Steve Sax said...

Ballgame!

5-2 Dodgers, F

Spank Mathijsen said...

Party Time!

Hideo Nomo said...

3-2 in interleague!

Fred's Brim said...

CRAM IT, ALBERT!

Fred's Brim said...

that was great
Nice pitching by Harang. Kennedy owes him a beer or three

Dusty Baker said...

Kennedy owes us all for making us watch the wee small hours of his career.

Fred's Brim said...

Was it just MLB.tv or did Vin's call of Rivera's homerun cut in and out on regular TV too?

Hideo Nomo said...

It's cutting out on At Bat too. Didn't see it live.

Steve Sax said...

The fact that we made Harang pitch with both Kennedy and Uribe in the lineup was just cruel.

Fred's Brim said...

rewatching the 8th. I bet Dre has a pad on his right foot tomorrow

Spank Mathijsen said...

I was watching on MLBtv also but it sounded good here.

Dusty Baker said...

Sounded good here. He pointed out that she was gone.

Fred's Brim said...

OK enough basking for me, time for bed
Gnite fellas!

MR.F said...

Ahh, I was busy eating dinner, but WHOO SUCK IT ANGELS!

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

Turkey and apple cider party time

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!
