Game 82 Thread: July 3 vs Reds, 7p

The Cuban Torta — pricey but delicious — at Sunny Spot, Roy Choi's Jamaican restaurant in Venice.

Chris Capuano (9-3, 2.69) vs. Johnny Cueto (9-4, 2.26).

It's the battle of the All-Star snubbees as Chris Capuano takes on Johnny Cueto! Juan Uribe isn't starting tonight (guess that pulled pork sandwich was pretty filling), but for the Reds, Zack Cozart (not to be confused with this guy) is starting despite being diagnosed with a mild concussion after being hit on the head by Chad Billingsley last night. Oh, and Joey Votto is starting too. So that's just great.

Coffey down, Tolleson up.

@dylano: "Ethier felt something on one particular swing when hitting in the cage today. Won't take BP on the field."

Great.

Orel said...

@WSH 5, SF 0, top 4

Orel said...

FLA 11, MIL 11, top 9

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Totally worked out, that whole not putting Ethier on the DL thing.

Orel said...

Looks like he'll swap places with Mark Ellis tomorrow and could be available for the first game after the All-Star break? I hope?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The funny thing about Tolleson being "recalled" is that he never left LA in the first place, according to JP Hoornstra.

Orel said...

Probably hopped off the plane when he saw Coffey implode.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RT @JonHeymanCBS: Todd coffey likely needs tommy john elbow surgery. He was placed on the 15-day dl today by #dodgers

That's the end of Coffey Time, I guess.

Orel said...

One less reliever to trade.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, but one more reliever to trade FOR.

Orel said...

Trading starters for relievers is always such a good idea. Right, James McDonald?

Orel said...

WSH 8, SF 2, bot 5

Steve Sax said...

WAS 8, SF 2, T7

Hideo Nomo said...

Nomo here at the yard. The SoSG losing streak is going DOWN.

As is an Extreme Loaded Dog.

Orel said...

Epale, Karina! Stick around this time.

Orel said...

What exactly is on an Extreme Loaded Dog?

knapS said...

Me.

knapS said...

Or 99% of SoSG commenters.

Orel said...

I'm glad I changed my phrasing on that question.

Hideo Nomo said...

Check our Twitters.

Orel said...

That is...extremely loaded.

Orel said...

One more baserunner and the Reds will have the bases extremely loaded.

Orel said...

Capuano up to A BILLION PITCHES this inning.

Orel said...

Cap gets out of it. 23 pitches in the 1st.

karina said...

hey! the other team didn't score any runs in spite of RISP. I'll take that as improvement.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"Extreme Loaded Dog" was my nickname in high school.

Orel said...

Dee flies out on the second pitch. On the bright side he did not: (1) strike out; (2) bunt.

karina said...

so, first Reds hitter of the inning reaches first, nothing happens.

I don't mind if the the very same trend continues.

Orel said...

Cap at 30 pitches.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That place has a mighty fine happy hour.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh yeah, the game!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Chisox beating Texas 19-2. That's a pants-down spanking.

Orel said...

WSH 9, SF 3, bot 8

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like how this game is going.

Orel said...

Well, we're not losing. That in itself is a victory.

Wait.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Don't do it, Orel! Don't get lulled into a false sense of security!

Orel said...

ROJO ARDIENDO

Jason said...

Tuning in late but, with Kennedy batting 5th, this game is in the bag. Past performance guarantees future results, right?

Orel said...

It's scoreless but Cap's throwing too many pitches.

Orel said...

Correlation is causation, absolutely.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Lots of futility tonight.

Franklin Stubbs said...

By saying so, that was bound to happen. It's on me.

NicJ said...

Well, we hung in there a while tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Another loss. Blegh.

Orel said...

1-0 Reds. Game over.

Orel said...

At least the Giants lost.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Save us, Desmond Jennings!

NicJ said...

See, a normal first basemen would have hit that into the seats.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Luis Cruz: not that good.

Orel said...

How is Luis Cruz not the answer to all our problems? I don't get it.

Orel said...

I wonder how many Extreme Loaded Dog that Nomo has eaten out of frustration.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ryan Hanigan has the ugliest Gameday pic I can recall.

NicJ said...

It's amazing how many people on twitter don't understand the NBA salary cap.

Orel said...

Cueto balk followed by an Abreu RBI!

Orel said...

There's your run, Cap.

Orel said...

@OwensAndrew (LA Times intern): "As it stands now, Kemp is 2-3 with two singles, a walk and a strikeout. #Dodgers"

Orel said...

After a seven-pitch AB, it's always good to swing at the first pitch. WHY, RIVERA?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Tied? What the hell?

Dusty Baker said...

Just made sweet, sweet love to Nomo-san on the Loge Level.

He left though, and wouldn't cuddle.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jesus Colorado, I'll never get used to that windup.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Kennedy Kennedys.

Orel said...

LUIS CRUZ IS THE ANSWER TO ALL OUR PROBLEMS

Orel said...

WOT

Orel said...

Cruz steals home? I gotta see this.

Orel said...

Ah, busted squeeze. Of course. Nice something finally went our way, though.

Orel said...

This puts Elbert in line for the win? Getting ahead of myself.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Winning? What the hell?

Steve Sax said...

3-1 Dodgers here in the bottom of the eighth

I got your extreme loaded dog right here

Steve Sax said...

Van Slyke not looking good on that first pitch

Steve Sax said...

That seventh-inning was sweet

Steve Sax said...

Two and one to Van Slyke

Steve Sax said...

Van Slykie takes the walk, the first walk in the game for the Dodgers

Neeebs * said...

Went outside to fix my sprinklers and miss bottom of seventh. WTF.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, I'll be damned.

NicJ said...

Neeebs must now fix his sprinklers every night at game time.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Tony Jr looks like he's wearing Tony Sr's pants.

Steve Sax said...

Come on Kenley settle down

Steve Sax said...

What's with the asterisk, neeebs?

Franklin Stubbs said...

The Dodger's haven't had a save opportunity since Anaheim.

Steve Sax said...

Two out walk to hi-C

Steve Sax said...

Thanks, Stubb's!

Steve Sax said...

Nice strike 1 pitch there KJ

NicJ said...

Neeebs was caught using PEDs, or PEEEDs

Steve Sax said...

Nice strike 2 pitch there KJ

Alex said...

WE MAKE EXTREMELY LOADED PARTY!!!

Steve Sax said...

Boom! Dodgers win!

Half game back!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Well I did not see this result coming.

Orel said...

WE WIN

NicJ said...

won the last 2 of 3!!!


HOT Streak!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Holy shit, you guys!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ha! That one(')s for Dusty!

Steve Sax said...

Post-game thread up.
