Game 5 Thread: April 6 vs. Pirates, 6p


Because two A.J.s are never enough, here's one more.

Clayton Kershaw (1-0, 0.00) vs. A.J. Burnett (0-1, 4.76)

The ungodly Clayton Kershaw returns to the mound tonight, still leading the team in home runs. Thankfully, he has company now, as Ethier crushed one off Jonathan Sanchez (a lefty!) last night.

A.J. Burnett was an unexpected ace for the Pirates last year, but didn't fare so well in his first outing against the Cubs this season. Our A.J. and the rest of the now-Harangless Dodgers look to take him down again and take the series.

SoSG Dusty will be at the game tonight, wearing that outfit above. Find him, and he might just let you touch his ab.

Update: SoSG Orel will be there too, but he won't let you touch him. I learned that the hard way.

Dusty and a six-pack reference?

What gives?

Hideo Nomo said...

Ab.

Singular.

Hideo Nomo said...

Thanks for the linkage.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh. It's one giant ab.

Slamming a final Sam Alpine Sprig now before we head out. Looking forward to seeing (getting) Orel later!

Steve Sax said...

Giants down 6-3 in the bottom of the ninth.

All five Giants pitchers used today have ERAs north of 7.00.

Steve Sax said...

@Gnomes: no worries! Just thought I would sprinkle a link of joy in your excellent GT...

Steve Sax said...

A.J. Lee scares me.

Hideo Nomo said...

In a good way.

Steve Sax said...

Giants lose 6-3. Vogelsong gave up 5 ER over 5.1 IP (90 pitches) and now has a 8.44 ERA.

Steve Sax said...

Arizona's down 2-1 in Milwaukee, top 3

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 3:43p: I just saw Orel this afternoon. He is excited to see you this evening at the Stadium.

Orel, but no Sax tonight. Sorry Dusty

Hideo Nomo said...

Post updated to reflect Orel attendance.

Steve Sax said...

@Gnomes: a little "Orel surgery" on the GT, perhaps?

Hideo Nomo said...

Hello? (tap tap)

Cliff Beefpile said...

Whaddup, bishes.

MEllis! 1-0!

Alex said...

Crawford is f'n fast. Makes up for not running through that ball four for a caught stealing yesterday....

epale, ey!

Steve Sax said...

Strike 3 called to Kemp. He knew it.

1-0 Dodgers through 3.

Steve Sax said...

Crawford is awesome.

Alex said...

C'mon Matt! It's Burnett...

#teambison

Alex said...

Burnett looks like Randy Johnson's burnout primo...

Alex said...

Ma Dukes said McCutchen reminds her of a mini horse...

Orel said...

Pretty mellow at the yard so far.

Alex said...

I hope no one died during the blanket distribution. That is tonight right?

rbnlaw said...

Mertesacker, Mertesacker; oy, oy, oy!

Seriously, where is everyone?

Alex said...

Rest easy everybody hello kitty night is the 17th...

Speaking of kitty, who's homegirl from the wwe?

Remember Miss Elizabeth?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dre Day!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, shit. Way to go, Ellis.

Alex said...

Why AJ Ellis? You're the good AJ in this game...

C'mon Cruuuuuz!!

Oh, make him pay for that, por favor

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, piss

Alex said...

I don't care too much for Burnett

Alex said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Alex said...

C'mon Blue!

Get off yer knees, you're blowin the game...

Alex said...

Mini horse on deck...

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was ugly

Hideo Nomo said...

Kemp on the express bus to sombrero town.

Franklin Stubbs said...

At least gonzo seems to be coming around

Alex said...

Harangutan to COL?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Indeed. The desiccated corpse of Ramon Hernandez comes to LA in return, I believe.

Alex said...

Not even a bucket of balls to go along with?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Harang pitching in Colorado? They're gonna need every last one of 'em.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Alright! Now score!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Rancho Ardiendo, bishes

Franklin Stubbs said...

Piss

Franklin Stubbs said...

In all comes down to Sellers? Good god.

Alex said...

Cruz should have taken that pitch...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Burnett loos more meth-labby than ever this year

Franklin Stubbs said...

^looks

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yeah, that was unexpected.

Wicks said...

2 hitters swinging 3-1 with a pitcher with no control? blah!

Wicks said...

Rockies are going to DFA Harang BTW.

Hideo Nomo said...

Think we can convince Cruz he's still playing for Mexico?

Alex said...

Definitely more meth-labby, Stubbs

Steve Sax said...

Can someone please give Kershaw some run support, for god's sake

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw at 90 pitches.

He's due to lead off in the bottom of the seventh. I bet Mattingly expects he'll hit a HR

Cliff Beefpile said...

Good ol' Russell Martin.

Alex said...

I love it when Kershaw picks 'em off!

pay him.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Holy shit, the ball was at first before he ever realized he was picked off.

Hideo Nomo said...

You're no Kershaw, Skip.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Is that how it's actually pronounced? I trust Vinny, but I always thought Melon-con, not Melan-son. Go figure.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Papa needs some geico.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck.

Alex said...

awo(s)

Franklin Stubbs said...

What, you couldn't strike out, even?

Franklin Stubbs said...

We are effing pitiful at the plate.

Alex said...

Gotta stay faithful to Bison... But it ain't looking good right now.

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh good. We took out the only guy that's hitting.

Orel said...

Thanks to Sax for the tickets! Thanks to Dusty for the beer! I'm a lucky bastard!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Whoa, throttle back there big shifter

Steve Sax said...

Kemp, 0-for-4 with a GIDP

Alex said...

3 SO for Matty but who's counting right?

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was satisfactory

Alex said...

Kenley the Menley - Michael Scott

Cliff Beefpile said...

AGon with a nice double. Too bad he won't score. Shit, it's way too early in the season to be this bitter. Score, assholes!

Alex said...

c'mon good AJ!!

Alex said...

AJ with the walk! - true to his walk-up song!

Cruz dont make me throw something at the TV...

Alex said...

you can swing that wooden thing on your shoulders right?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Take one for the team, Sellers!

Alex said...

^

Franklin Stubbs said...

It seems like sellers is always up

BJ Killeen said...

They should make part of the infield a cemetery since so many die out there on base.

Steve Sax said...

It seems like Sellers is always going down, too

Cliff Beefpile said...

At this point, I think I'd rather get my nads waxed than watch this team try to hit.

Hideo Nomo said...

You're not good enough to get that mad, SellBlock.

Alex said...

awo

getting really tired of your shit, sellers

Wicks said...

oh no we suck again

Alex said...

ah the captain morgan commercial will make me happy

(drinks)

Franklin Stubbs said...

So, they can't continue to be this futile…

…can they?

Alex said...

good play, becks err Skip!

Franklin Stubbs said...

The strikes one seems like a bit of an adventure for League tonight

Alex said...

one more...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Uno mas!

Franklin Stubbs said...

*clenches*

Alex said...

ruh roh...

Franklin Stubbs said...

This makes me nervous

Franklin Stubbs said...

THANK THE GODS!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Just fucking enough, lads. JUST.

Cliff Beefpile said...

2 hours and 1 minute, and not a minute too soon.

BJ Killeen said...

It's a miracle..cuz we know it's not the team.

Franklin Stubbs said...

At least "I love LA" is back.

Alex said...

Feels good to hear that song but damn let's get the bats goin', fellas!

Hideo Nomo said...

I Love L.A. was only gone last night because it was the last scheduled song for the fireworks.

Alex said...

Nomo with the scoop, gracias seƱor

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!

Steve Sax said...
