Game 72 Thread: June 23 @ Angels, 4pm


"Earvin, Santana. Santana, Earvin."

Chris Capuano (8-2, 2.71) vs. Ervin Santana (4-7, 5.16)

Ugh. Last night was so depressing, we almost forgot to post today's Game Thread.

The Dodger bats finally woke up...for all of two innings before rolling over and hitting the snooze button. Meanwhile, Chad Billingsley and Jamey Wright teamed up to gift-wrap 8 runs and clinch a losing Interleague record.

Let's just get this over with. Save us, Cap!

EDIT: Hopefully, the Dodgers can win one for Roberto Baly of Vin Scully is My Homeboy. Roberto is in a bad, bad way and needs all the positive vibes he can get. We're pulling for you, Roberto!

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, lads! We got this!

(collapses from effort at optimism)

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Yeah, we got this! I'll put Loney Rivera and Uribe up against Trumbo Trout Pujols any day!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Silly Pujols.

Dusty Baker said...

Early runny goodness!

Dusty Baker said...

Loney you suck Sandusky.

Steve Sax said...

Loney, where Dodger rallies go to die

Steve Sax said...

2-0 Dodgers through 0.5 innings

Dusty Baker said...

Angels fans are shittier than Dodgers fans at judging how far a batted ball is going to travel. Assjols.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to sodomize a rally monkey.

Hideo Nomo said...

They have to get the mics off the yahoos in the crowd or I'm gonna smash my TV.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

Cap is the shit unlike Loney who is shit.

Hideo Nomo said...

Nice! We're only four innings and an unseasonable downpour away from triumph!

Steve Sax said...

Cap gets out #3 of the first. 2-0 Dodgers through one.

Hideo Nomo said...

Who's the creepy old dude in the Taco Bell prom limo commercial?

Steve Sax said...

As up 2-1 on SF in the second

Steve Sax said...

And just like that, the As cough up the lead

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers batting .226 in June, acc to Charley

Steve Sax said...

Herrera Ks for the first out of the second

Dusty Baker said...

DFA URINE NOW, god dammit. I'd rather lose, but lose without this fat shitsucking POS.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe Ks for the second out

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: would it be correct to say Uribe is weighing us down?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

It would be correct to say Urine is a fat shitsucking POS.

Hideo Nomo said...

"The third baseman Uribe is under it."

A soft serve dispenser?

Hideo Nomo said...

Wow, Dee.

Dusty Baker said...

I wish Stephen King's IT would arise from the sewer and take care of business on Urine.

Dusty Baker said...

Cocksucker. Get out of the yard already, Dre's fly ball.

Come on, baseball gods. Throw me a bone.

Hideo Nomo said...

Uh oh. Santanananana might be locked in.

karina said...

epale everyone!

gnome is in! hope it gives luck to the Dodgers and Roberto

Dusty Baker said...

I'm locked in on this Sierra Nevada Summerfest.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

SHOULDER GNOME! One of my favorite talismans in all of sports lore. Bring it!

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

My first beer in a week. Ice cold taste so fucking good on a hot motherfucker.

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

"DFA URINE NOW, god dammit. I'd rather lose, but lose without this fat shitsucking POS. "
My sentiments exactly, i'd rather lose with unproven youngsters which is why i don't hate on Dee.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

i thought Torii hunter was on leave for Sandusky reasons.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, ABrew. Yank one out.

Dusty Baker said...

I meant one out of the ballpark, as in a home run. Not as in one of the three outs in this inning.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

That was weak,Bobbo.

Dusty Baker said...

Per @MLBONFOX

Jonny Gomes just hit his 8th HR of the season to put the #Athletics up 4-2 on the #Giants, bottom of 3rd.

Dusty Baker said...

King Lames.

Hideo Nomo said...

Yep, offense is still dead. It's all up to Cappy.

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit this Dodger malaise has me listening to Katy Perry again, really loud. Make it stop!

Dusty Baker said...

45

karina said...

two outs, one out for the Dodger rally

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

Dee needs to shave them pubes off his upper lip.

Hideo Nomo said...

Sweet. I can tell from the broadcast that my seats for tomorrow's game should be in the shade.

karina said...

Uribe:three pitches, one K, his second in the game.

*cries*

Orel said...

Shouldergnome has arrived. We will win.

Orel said...

SuperCap with the diving snag!

NicJ said...

Looks like we are locked in to 2 runs for the game. Will it be enough?

Dusty Baker said...

Let's play Spotify roulette. What is the next set of songs I should listen to while I get progressively more pissed off while I watch this game?

Orel said...

So our two runs were unearned? Figures.

Dusty Baker said...

Ice Cibe's a pimp.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shouldergnome was my nickname in high school.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

shit

Orel said...

2-1 after Dee can't hold on to the hot rock.

Dusty Baker said...

Can't hate on Dee for that one. That was a laser and it was all he could do to get his glove to the area.

NicJ said...

Yeah he was playing up and it was tailing away.

Orel said...

Two on, one out for the Angels.

NicJ said...

Here we go...

Orel said...

Dee just made up for it!

karina said...

*breathes*

NicJ said...

How the hell are the Angels rallying?!?

What about the shadows!?!?

Orel said...

Dodger defense on display!

Hideo Nomo said...

ELIAN!!!

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

goddamnit. i nearly had a heart attack.

NicJ said...

Ooh, that was pretty damn close.

karina said...

with this soft little league the Dodgers have these days, I freak out when any opposing team hitter reaches first base.

Orel said...

Deeple!

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

holy shit. fuck yeah Dee!

NicJ said...

Dee gordon hits it to the statue of Mark Trumbo in left field!!!

3 DEE

karina said...

YAY! Geico!

Orel said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the new and creative ways the Dodgers will fail to score Dee....

Orel said...

Never mind!

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

holy shit. we scored.

Dusty Baker said...

Run(s) in!!!

Orel said...

When was Andre's last HR?

Dusty Baker said...

That granny a few weeks ago.

Dusty Baker said...

^ That was the last time Spanky hooked up.

Hideo Nomo said...

LOLOLOL

Orel said...

That was the most un-Andre single ever. But I'll take it!

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

this is our inning. we need to score big time.

Orel said...

Neeebs' granny?

Dusty Baker said...

ABrew looked like shit on that AB. Swinging at shit.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

Comodulce comocaca.

NicJ said...

never really realize just how many ex-angels play on the dodgers until you play them in Anaheim.

Orel said...

Of course. Of course.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

NicJ said...

That was unsurprising.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet shitsucking jesus crust, how hard is it to life a ball to RF and get a run in?

Dusty Baker said...

^lift

Steve Sax said...

3-1 and Gordon has been involved with both rallies.

Swinging, by the way

Orel said...

And right away we work on giving it back.

Steve Sax said...

4-2 A'''''''s in the bottom of the fifth

Orel said...

Go a'S!

Dusty Baker said...

(cries at sight of multiple, misplaced apostrophes)

Orel said...

Go Athletic's!

NicJ said...

I hate watching Angels games because Scott Boras is always hanging out behind home plate.

Dusty Baker said...

DP up in dis bish!

Orel said...

An eye for an eye, a DP for a DP!

NicJ said...

Dee should of run that ball from second to first.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

I thought that was Colletti sitting behind home plate.

NicJ said...

"An eye for an eye, a DP for a DP!"

I just rented that movie last night.

Dusty Baker said...

Still the man, Nic.

Dusty Baker said...

So you think you can hit?

NicJ said...

Why do the Angels have uniformed police in the dugouts?

Orel said...

Herrera has buntitis.

NicJ said...

Lot of Dodger fans in the crowd.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

safe you blind motherfucking ump!

NicJ said...

Not surprising, CB Bucker is a pretty bad ump.

Dusty Baker said...

I would put a hex on Urine but clearly someone was already way ahead of me.

Orel said...

Middle of the 7th. Santana at 103 pitches, Cap at 83.

NicJ said...

It's amazing how SF fans still want him back.

Hideo Nomo said...

STOOPID AYS

Dusty Baker said...

6-4 hated ones.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

SULU!

Hideo Nomo said...

“@SteveLyons12: Uribe continues to do absolutely nothing. How much longer?”

NicJ said...

Hopefully Cap can make it through this inning. Guys are starting to make hard contact.

NicJ said...

Did Lyons really tweet that?

wow, akward bus ride home.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

The Angels have the most players with fucked up names than any other team.

NicJ said...

Well i guess Lyons would know about guys making a career out of doing absolutely nothing.


(Oh snap)

Orel said...

Is Mattingly pushing his luck keeping Cap in there?

Orel said...

And right on cue.

NicJ said...

Hmmm.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

i think Cap has one good out left.

Orel said...

And Cap stays in!

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

All i know about the Angels is their stadium announcer saying......
"Center Fielder, Daaarrreeennn Erstaad!" Yay! "woooooo"
I remember my uncle taking us to a game when they had their ugly uniforms and they lost to the Twins 9-1

NicJ said...

Well, i guess Hester would be the guy you chance it with.

Orel said...

whew

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

There it is.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

Is Cap going back out for the eighth?

Orel said...

Santana with 10 Ks.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

Plug nose is pitching.

Orel said...

Giants now leading 8-4.

Orel said...

Two out, Trout at third.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

Dope nose gets out of the inning unscathed.

Orel said...

Into the ninth. Some Geico would be welcome.

Orel said...

Watching these weak swings, I'm shocked we scored three tonight.

Orel said...

Do your thing, Kenley.

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

sit down mofo and stop smiling.

Orel said...

One more out!

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

2 down bishes

Hideo Nomo said...

Get Mouser!

Spank Morales-Mangonzales said...

Finally. We make party!

Hideo Nomo said...

WE MAKE MUHFUGGIN PARTY.

karina said...

gnome magic!

Dusty Baker said...

We make party with gnomes!

Hideo Nomo said...

That's right, I am magic.

Oh, you meant the shoulder gnome.

Hideo Nomo said...

I am, however, going down there tomorrow to finish this shit in person.

Dusty Baker said...

I am obviously glad we won, but it was shaky enough that it didn't seem like a complete victory. Felt like kissing my sister.

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

Is it possible to get a DUI on a bicycle?

Dusty Baker said...

KYSPGT up!
