All-Star Game Thread: NL @ AL, 5p

This time, it counts.

Starting pitchers: R.A. Dickey Matt Cain (9-3, 2.62) vs. Justin Verlander (9-5, 2.58).

Not to be Oscar the Grouch about this, but aside from seeing Clayton Kershaw get in the game to pitch, I am not very interested in watching this year's All-Star Game. Although it would be cool to see Oyster Pubes meet a Pete Rose-like play at the plate.

As seen on Twitter:

"Sounds like LaRussa's plan is Cain-Gio-Stras-Dickey-Hamels..."

So, Dodger fans can just fuck off, I guess.

Hideo Nomo said...

Wait, what am I talking about? This is LaRussa! That's probably just the first inning.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Let's just rip the band-aid and get this over with.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There are only two catchers on the NL roster? Good lord.

Hideo Nomo said...

My two least favorite ones, too!

Hideo Nomo said...

Kershaw says he's pitching an inning "in the middle of the game." I'll believe it when I see it.

(LaRussa installs PS3 in NL dugout, fires up MLB 12 The Show, hands Kershaw a controller)

Over/under on shots of BBQ food shown by FOX during pre-game: 11.5.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'll take the under.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't know why, but I am so sick of Mike Trout.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Mike Trout = Team I loathe experiencing good fortune. That is all.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fatty looked gassed after running from the dugout.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ryan Braun with a double to score Melky. NL takes a 1-0 lead.

knapS said...

Spank takes the lead too.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nasty change-up catches Votto looking.

Hideo Nomo said...

Verlander doesn't know that it counts.

Also, Larry's "speech" was lame.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Um...yay?

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck. Fat Sandwich, ASG MVP.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Et tu, Jeter?

knapS said...

Holy mackerel! 5-0 NL already?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm at work reading this thread but not actually following the game. This thread is far more entertaining!

Dusty Baker said...

I mean more entertaining than the game itself. But also more entertaining than work.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Michael Young is not an All Star this year?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

From reading the line on AtBat it looks like Giants hitters are supplying all the offense. What did fat panda hit double triple?

Steve Sax said...

@Fat Panda is more associated with double doubles

Hideo Nomo said...

The Harper Shrug!

Hideo Nomo said...

I blame Oyster Pubes for Kersh's rough inning.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Go back to college, Harper!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Go back to college, Harper!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bullshit!

knapS said...

Larry's speech made me stop watching the game all together. I hate that fake shit.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Wade Miley alert! Get crackin', Nomo!
