Game 26 Thread: April 30 vs. Rockies, 7p


We see you too, ladies.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-1, 3.41) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (2-2, 2.86)

Hanley's back! (Well, technically, he was back last night, but let's not speak about that abomination again.) Not a moment too soon, as the Dodger offense continues to sputter along. On the other hand, "hovering around .500 by the time Hanley gets back" is probably what most expected, and that's where we are. Props to Hanley for keeping his promise to the fans and making it back for his bobblehead night, but let's hope he didn't rush things too much.


Oh, and as if we haven't ridden the Psy thing far enough, there's also this:

Should be a fun night!

UPDATE from Sax: AC and I will be at tonight's game, separately. Let's go, Hanley!

MR.F said...

Boobs AND topical relevance. Should be good.

Orel said...

One comes up, another goes down:

Eric Stephen ‏@truebluela 52m

Carl Crawford scratched with right hamstring tightness http://sbn.to/15Ye4Pg

Hideo Nomo said...

A.J. has botulism.

Orel said...

AGon has beriberi.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe has a huge fucking gut

karen said...

Hi Everyone...OK I know I haven't been paying as much attention as usaul so far but what happened to Eric Karros on Think Blue TV?

Alex Cora said...

He's on the DL (hanta virus) along with all the other dodgers.

Dusty Baker said...

Mitch Poole is out, too, suffering from inverted penis.

Hideo Nomo said...

Luis Cruz has the golbloots, but no one noticed.

BJ Killeen said...

You guys crack me up.

BJ Killeen said...

Bye Josh. Exiled. Think about what you did last nigh while on the bus trip to NM.

Erin said...

I thought maybe I could bring some good mojo when I returned from my self-imposed exile. If I truly believed in superstition, I'd probably leave again.

Erin said...

That was probably my fault, because I commented.

BJ Killeen said...

Jackie Robinson called. He doesn't want to be a Dodger any more.

Orel said...

Damn. Down in the 1st again.

Orel said...

Consecutive singles! C'mon, Matty.

Orel said...

In play, run(s)!

Orel said...

Tres singles!

Dusty Baker said...

Runny goodness!

Erin said...

Correct me if I'm wrong: This is the first time in franchise history the Dodgers have had the lead in a game, right?

Dusty Baker said...

I see you, Hanley!

BJ Killeen said...

No comment till the 5th.

Dusty Baker said...

@Erin

Yeah, I can't remember another time. I think we were close once.

Spank said...

we have the lead! we have the lead! omg! omg! omg! omg! omg! omg!

*runs out the door nekked holding a catfish*

Orel said...

Aw yeah, it's urine time!

Hideo Nomo said...

First Dodger lead since 1988, per Elias Bullshit Sports.

Erin said...

Attempted sac bunt leads to a double play...exactly as they planned, I'm sure.

Dusty Baker said...

Cargo with a terrible throw; Urine scores on a Hairston single.

cc: karina

Dusty Baker said...

De la Rosa 0-13 in starts against the Dodgers? Did I just hear that correctly?

Dusty Baker said...

Hairston in! 4-1 Dodgers, dare I say.

Dusty Baker said...

Suck it, last night's game!

Orel said...

It's an onslaught of singles! 4-1 Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp'd.

Oh well, solid inning. Back on track.

Dusty Baker said...

Ryu is just rockin it tonight. Those curveballs are just wicked.

Erin said...

Vin really appreciated that last big curve.

Orel said...

It's amazing what a team can do without Ted Lilly.

Dusty Baker said...

HomeRun for HanRam on his bobblehead night!!!!

Erin said...

Don't call it a comeback.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH!

Hope Sax and AC are pouring beer all over their seat mates.

Dusty Baker said...

We're going to win this one 12-2 tonight.

MR.F said...

Home run!!!

Dusty Baker said...

45

Paul said...

That was awesome Handley!

Hideo Nomo said...

SWOON

Erin said...

I'm expecting a Kuo-style bat flip here.

Erin said...

(Because I expect them from all pitchers; not because this one also happens to be Asian)

Dusty Baker said...

Come to think of it, I don't remember what Kershaw did with his bat after his Opening Day HR. I was too busy high-fiving and crying.

Dusty Baker said...

And a RyuBI!

BJ Killeen said...

Snakes and gnats 0-0 in the 7th

MR.F said...

BALLER AT-BAT FROM RYU.

Erin said...

Will I take an RBI single? Yes, I will.

Did he flip the bat?

Paul said...

Scoreboard malfunction again.

Orel said...

Love it. We needed this.

Paul said...

Laborious D.

Dusty Baker said...

De la Rosa, are you Lilly in disguise?

BJ Killeen said...

Dodgers word for the season: consistent. constantly adhering to the same principles, course, form, etc.: a consistent opponent.

Dusty Baker said...

Pain on the Kings side of things. Quick gives up a SHG in an incredibly bumbling play in OT. Jesus christ, man. Buzzkill.

Dusty Baker said...

@Erin

Can't believe you haven't pointe out that deuces are wild. 2 in the 1st, 2 in the 2nd, and 2 in the 3rd!

Erin said...

I'm sorry! I'm working while trying to watch the game and stay in this thread. I didn't notice how many we've scored each inning.

Erin said...

Seven Ks for Ryu through 3.2 innings. Not too shabby.

Erin said...

Make that eight through four.

Dusty Baker said...

No prob, Erin. I had your back.

BJ Killeen said...

Psy followers are a bunch of lemmings. He's an anti American hack whose 15 minutes of fame are over. Go away.

MR.F said...

@BJ Killeen:
Push out the jive, bring in the love.

Erin said...

This is how the season is going for the Dodgers: Kemp just fouled that ball off his leg, causing Hanley to need another thumb surgery.

BJ Killeen said...

Who are these people, and what did you do with our Dodgers?

Dusty Baker said...

My god A-Gon is slow. I think Hanley could have hit that one out and A-Gon would have had to stop at third.

BJ Killeen said...

Sorry mr f. Anti psy

Orel said...

I hope Crawford isn't out long. Would love to see our maximum firepower.

Dusty Baker said...

"Hello Hanley. Uh-huh. We see you!" - Vinnie

BJ Killeen said...

Kershaw's dad died? How sad.

Dusty Baker said...

Do we know how he died yet?

Also, Ned's mother passed away.

BJ Killeen said...

His dad can't have been that old.

Dusty Baker said...

Snakes up 1-0 on Hated Ones.

Dusty Baker said...

(feels hate)

BJ Killeen said...

No news in dad's death.

Dusty Baker said...

"It's up there. It is down there." -Vin re Ryu's curveball to K his 10th batter.

Erin said...

10 Ks through five innings. That's an average of "deuces wild" per inning.

Dusty Baker said...

Did you just do math, Erin? Whoa!

Erin said...

I've got moves you've never seen.

Dusty Baker said...

Awful AB from Urine. He had better cuts on the previous IBB.

Dusty Baker said...

Kung Fat Panda just homered in the ninth to give Gnats 2-1 lead over Snakes.

Dusty Baker said...

11 down for Ryu.

Just wow.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dang. Phone about to die.

BJ Killeen said...

Panda. Ugh

Steve Sax said...

This game is great.

Dusty Baker said...

KKKKKKKKKKKK

Orel said...

KKKKKKKKKKKK

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Erin said...

This is exactly the kind of game we needed after last night.

If I may point out again: still averaging "deuces wild" in Ks per inning.

Dusty Baker said...

You're 2 legit to quit, Erin.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Wow Ryu is really trying to impress that Psy fella

Dusty Baker said...

I was wondering what all the crowd commotion and cheering was bt innings. Apparently they showed the basketball score reflecting the Clippers losing, and everyone was cheering. HAH!

Right on, Lakers/Dodger fans!

Erin said...

Apparently Ryu is done for the night.

Paul said...

Lets drop another deuce.

Paul said...

Great play!

Dusty Baker said...

Apparently Mrs Dusty is done for the night, too. #Lightweight

Paul said...

Tough luck for AGon that was a rocket.

Paul said...

Uribe with the moves.

Paul said...

Come on Belly!

Dusty Baker said...

I want six more runs.

Dusty Baker said...

^For the Dodgers, to be clear.

Paul said...

I hope Handley didn't rush back too soon. Still seems like that hand is bothering him.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

How could you tell? I must have missed it.

Paul said...

I have to watch the Colorado feed. He was flexing the thumb a bit as he walked of the field.

Dusty Baker said...

Interesting. KCAL didn't catch that.

Dusty Baker said...

Kenley stays in to go for the save.

Still want my other six Dodger runs though.

Dusty Baker said...

This clean cut Ethier look keeps throwing me off.

Paul said...

We make thank god April is over party!!

Erin said...

Good game.

Dusty Baker said...

Goodbye, April. Don't let the door hit you on the ass.

Alex Cora said...

Did Ted Lilly strain his neck looking back at all those long balls he gave up?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@Cora he sure as hell didn't strain it from watching the infield work the ball around the horn after K's!

Hideo Nomo said...

OPPANPGT up!

Steve Sax said...

Hooray, Kentucky sports radio. I'm just saying.
