Game 68 Thread: June 19 @ Superfluous Apostrophes, 7pm

Obligatory.

Aaron Harang (5-3, 3.59) vs. Brandon "Hot Wife" McCarthy (5-3, 2.79)

Oh, is it still Interleague? Damn, I was hoping we could get out while we were still above .500. Facing McCarthy seems like as good a chance as any to keep that winning record, though, as he has missed his last two starts with nagging shoulder pain. (Of course, it could also mean he'll bounce back and throw a one-hitter.)

And did I mention he has a hot wife?


Aaron Harang (who may also have a hot wife, but Google is lacking in evidence), is looking to continue a solid June, in which he's 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA.

The Angels don't seem to want to help us out, so let's kick some A and keep ourselves on top in the West.

I still posit that both the A's and As could be considered apostrophally correct. A's may be an absurd contraction of Althetics, but it's a contraction nonetheless.

Hideo Nomo said...

That was for Dusty. The apostrophe drives him nuts, technically correct or no.

Orel said...

But does he have a hot nagging wife?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Indeed. As I enjoy pedantically celebrating it(')s existence, just to piss him off.

Orel said...

@nickcafardo: "Dodgers scouting Youk tonight at Fenway."

Hope Youk goes 0 for 6 with three errors.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's in response to the first statement, not the second, for those who are counting.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Given how Youk is playing, I like the odds.

Paul said...

Hmmmmm Red Sox leftovers? Tastes like overprice fried chicken.

Paul said...

Counting is for losers.

Paul said...

I am going to Oakland tomorrow night! Who's coming with me?!??

Franklin Stubbs said...

Giants leftovers taste like the grease trap at Norm's.

MR.F said...

I might go, Paul!

Orel said...

postgame headline: COLLETTI TRADES KEMP FOR YOUK

Ugh: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/06/la-kings-drew-doughty-investigated-for-alleged-sexual-assault.html

Orel said...

Go OKC!

Orel said...

@SteveRushin: "Does 'Let's Go Heat' sound more like 'Let's Go Eat' or am I just hungry?"

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm OK with Youk if:

-We get him relatively cheap.
-His recent poor performance is an FU to Bobby Valentine for throwing him under the bus and he'll turn it around in a new locale.

He's the Greek god of woks, you know.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I am a bit hungry, now that it's come up.

Franklin Stubbs said...

EK went with the mellow hair today.

Franklin Stubbs said...

The problem with Youkilis and Quentin is that they're both guys with injury histories. I don't quite trust Colletti's track record on guys like that.

Franklin Stubbs said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was quick.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Really?

Orel said...

Off to a great start, I see.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Harang being Harang

Orel said...

Crisp (.204 BA) doubles.
Weeks (.222 BA) walks.
Yeah.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Guys named Seth inherently give me the creeps.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Son.
Of.
A.
Hurrrrrrrr.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Nice D, Toni.

Orel said...

And it begins. 2-0 A's, one out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Crapadoodledoo.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I had hoped that the alternating interleague wins and losses would stop here.

Orel said...

Harang has thrown 7489362937483020 pitches this inning.

Fred's Brim said...

cut the shit, Aaron

Fred's Brim said...

we cannot be making ridiculous errors like that

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well. That blows.

Fred's Brim said...

40 hundred million pitches

Fred's Brim said...

this goddamn shitheel of a team shouldn't be scoring 3 runs on anybody, let alone in the first inning

Hideo Nomo said...

Harang is making Jim Tracy rethink his plan.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Let's start by getting a hit.

Paul said...

Spotted a guy who pitches great at home 3 runs. Le sigh.

Paul said...

@Mr. F


Cool! I'll be in section 114 tomorrow....I think.

Fred's Brim said...

take some pitches, you wieners

Fred's Brim said...

BORING!

Orel said...

Way to put up a fight boys!

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, stupid!

Fred's Brim said...

Zito zitoish in Anaheim

Orel said...

At least there's that.

Paul said...

On second thought maybe I'll just stay on the other side of the bay and drink for two days.

Fred's Brim said...

christ

Fred's Brim said...

unacfuckingceptable

Fred's Brim said...

make these fartknockers swing! They can barely put the bat on the ball!

Fred's Brim said...

Harang is averaging 32 pitches an inning. I hope Jamey Wright is ready to go a few innings tonight

Franklin Stubbs said...

Take a pitch, dumbass!

Fred's Brim said...

FB not happy

Fred's Brim said...

cripes - McCarthy is getting squeezed and we still can't work a walk

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hey, no more no-hitter, at least!

Fred's Brim said...

a hit?

Fred's Brim said...

"0-1 bunt groundout"

grrr

Alex said...

at least we won(')t get no-hit...

Fred's Brim said...

way to take a pitch, Dee

Fred's Brim said...

Dee seems to only take pitches late in games

MR.F said...

I get home and we're already down by 3?!?!?

Hideo Nomo said...

There's my one-hitter prediction, woot!

I mean, shit!

Alex said...

pull up a seat mrf...

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

Fred's Brim said...

Alex said...

What(')s so fuckin(')g funny Chadley?

Orel said...

Aaron Harang is, how do you say, ineffectual.

Alex said...

Harrang drinking game:

Harrang walks, we drink...

Alex said...

8:11 EDIT: What(')s so f(')n funny Chadley?

Seriously though, nobody should be smilin(') right now...

Hideo Nomo said...

YAY I'M WRONG!!!

karina said...

epale everyone!

Harang, get a 1-2-3 fast, this game needs to be turned around.

Alex said...

Epale, Karina

if only we should be so lucky...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fucking fuck, let's get the pen already.

Hideo Nomo said...

My nephew made the astute observation that Harang stinks in his former home parks. We'll see how he does if he pitches in Cincy.

Fred's Brim said...

sweet jesus, Aaron
bury this one in the backyard and never speak of it again

Orel said...

Looks like LeBron is on his way....

Fred's Brim said...

@Nomo - I am guessing 3 runs vs Cincy would be getting off easy

Fred's Brim said...

AJ''s been striking out a little bit more than usual

Fred's Brim said...

Kennedy''s been walking a little bit more than usual

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe, you asshole, take a pitch

Fred's Brim said...

Tony got two pitches into that at bat. It's a start

Fred's Brim said...

We are losing to a team of Uribe's and Kennedy's

Hideo Nomo said...

KILL THE VUVUZELA.

Hideo Nomo said...

Strong "Let's go Dodgers" chant, though.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Who came up with the plan of "We're going to one of the most extreme pitcher's parks in the major leagues, so we might as well slash away!"

Fred's Brim said...

"gotta be aggressive at the plate..."

Hideo Nomo said...

^ Peter Guber

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fer fuck's sake!

Fred's Brim said...

"these guys are due to really start hitting, we better not pitch to them"

Fred's Brim said...

Elbert will fix things

Fred's Brim said...

I need to go to bed so we can win this. Gnite all

Paul said...

Come on James.

Paul said...

Let's sign some Red Sox!!

Paul said...

8 in a row and only 81 pitches heading into the 8th.

Paul said...

Jesus Colorado can we get rid of Uribe!!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Nope, that wasn't it.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, we are horrible tonight.

Paul said...

We have someone on base!!!!

Paul said...

James Loney can tie it!!! Well theoretically.

Orel said...

Here's our look at the game: top 9, two on, one out for Loney.

Paul said...

Fuckin bullshit. I am so sick of Loney and Urine. Trades please!!!

NicJ said...

It's amazing how many balls off Loney's bat look like liners up the middle but are actually grounders to the SS.

Orel said...

Aaugh, bullshit.

Orel said...

Nomo, the gauntlet is thrown. @truebluela: "Dodgers Fail McCarthy Trial, Burned By Former Red http://sbn.to/Ms2vTx"

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCK. I had something similar.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck it, I'm too tired to rewrite. PGT up!
