Game 28 Thread: May 3 @ Giants, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (3-2, 1.73) vs Barry Zito (3-1, 3.29).

The Dodgers haven't seen the Giants since the Opening Series at Dodger Stadium, when Clayton Kershaw homered and threw a majestic shutout, before the Giants snuck out of town with lucky victories in games 2 and 3.

Barry Zito has gone seven innings in each of his three home starts. He's still annoying. The Dodgers missed Zito in that Opening Series, but he's 9-10 lifetime against the Dodgers with a 3.71 ERA. Kershaw is 9-4 lifetime against the Giants with a 1.28 ERA, the lowest ERA against any NL team.

I don't care for the Giants much.

Kershaw not technically on roster yet. Ellis not going on DL. No announcements on Crawford or Lily.

Dusty Baker said...

I want this one bad, bishes.

Hideo Nomo said...

Lilly to DL.

Hideo Nomo said...

I guess rotation is Kershaw, Magill, Ryu, Beckett, then...Capuano?

Dusty Baker said...

No, I think "...then Spanky."

Steve Sax said...

Schumaker is making a case for the fifth slot

Steve Sax said...

This is a hot weekend

Dusty Baker said...

It is one hot muther chucker up in dis bish!

(drinks)

Dusty Baker said...

Still no Crawdaddy?

MR.F said...

Shaikin reports that Crawford can pinch-hit if needed.

Dusty Baker said...

Can Kemp hit if needed?

MR.F said...

I'll have to defer to the "expertise" of Mark McGwire on that one.

Dusty Baker said...

Who was that toad on the pre-game with Steve Lyons?

Paul said...

If it is going to be this kind of lineup I am going to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes.

Paul said...

We are all with you Clayton. A heavy heart for our main man tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

RIP MCA

Dusty Baker said...

This one is for you and your pops, Kid K!

Dusty Baker said...

Metallica night at ATT Park?

FUCK THOSE PUTOS! Money grubbing, Napster-killing, pansy haircut now having, tennis court building, shitbags!

karen said...

I love Clay...and hate Hate HATE the orange and black bastards from hell.

Hideo Nomo said...

A-Gon scratched. Dodgers recall James Loney.

Paul said...

Exactly DB on all your posts.

Hideo Nomo said...

But not fondly.

#Dodgers scratch Adrian Gonzalez on a night they're already running short of healthy hitters: http://lat.ms/15bL9Yd

Dusty Baker said...

This is going to get ugly.

By this, I mean me.

MR.F said...

What-the-pho about A-Gon?

Dusty Baker said...

Some pho sounds good right now.

Dusty Baker said...

UGLY UGLY UGLY uniforms! Can't handle it. Dusty grumpy.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dusty and I are crossing streams on Twitter.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nomo

And rockin it, if I do say.

#PassesTheMic

Dusty Baker said...

Joe West is plate ump. This won't end well.

For the buffet.

Dusty Baker said...

Wow, times is hard in NY. Beaten at home - shut out - by A's.

Dusty Baker said...

Well that was some blue balls.

Dusty Baker said...

Can't tell the difference between James Hetfield and Kung Fat Panda.

Hideo Nomo said...

SLOW CATCHER IS SLOW

Dusty Baker said...

I GUESS he had to wait to see if the ball was going to be caught....but still.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck a Clipper. Bandwagon-ass bitches.

Dusty Baker said...

SLOW CATCHER IS SLOW

Dusty Baker said...

Thrown out by White Loney.

Dusty Baker said...

"A fistful of deuces" -Vin

Dusty Baker said...

Then we dropped a deuce on this inning.

Dusty Baker said...

"I ate the bones?!?"


(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

45

Hideo Nomo said...

LOL White Loney. Proud of that one.

Kinda looked like A.J.'s foot got in there, but whatevs.

Spank said...

FUCK THE GNATS!!

FUCK LARS!

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Who do you hate more, Lars or Gnats?

Dusty Baker said...

@Gnomes

I thought the same thing re AJEllis at the plate, but then again I'm biased.

Dusty Baker said...

I'mma say it again: Kemp just looks like he has no idea how to approach any AB. He just stands up there and takes good pitches and swings at bad ones, then sulks back to the dugout. Something is up.

Dusty Baker said...

UJTD

Hideo Nomo said...

His shoulder has gotta be a lot weaker than he's letting on. But is it hurting?

Orel said...

Kemp Ks on three pitches from Zito?

Dusty Baker said...

I think it's his mental state and plate approach more than the shoulder.

Orel said...

Eric Stephen ‏@truebluela 47s

RT @CSNBaggs: Hanley Ramirez's hand is bothering him. He's wincing and shaking it.

Dusty Baker said...

8 in a row retired by Kid, but only first K.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fucking double plays.

Orel said...

Puntoriffic!

Erin said...

Keyshaw has a lot on his mind tonight. Is it possible the rest of the guys could step up so he doesn't have to carry this team, too?

Dusty Baker said...

The Kershaw legend grows...

Spank said...

Clippers blow....as usual.

Spank said...

Good question,Dusty. I'll say my hatred for the Gnats runs deeper than my hatred for Lars.Still there is a lot of hateHateHATE for both to share.

BJ Killeen said...

I'm back home. I hear Cedars Sinai is renaming the hospital after the Dodgers.

Spank said...

Zit head is out of the game.

Dusty Baker said...

Wheels coming off that Clipper bandwagon really fast.

Dusty Baker said...

Great, HanRam tries for third stupidly and hurts himself. What have we done to anger the gods?

Erin said...

What the hell, Ramirez?

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Erin said...

What a fucking moron.

Spank said...

I blame David Stern

karen said...

What kind of low life, shit for brains and black souls cheer when a player is hurt.

Oh yeah, were in frisco.

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

BJ Killeen said...

We are scraping the bottom of the barrel If Cruz is up

Dusty Baker said...

I feel like we need to blow up the Steve Bartman baseball or something to break the bad curse we have on us.

BJ Killeen said...

Is there a difference now between Dee and Cruz? Not any more.

Spank said...

goddamnit @Cruz and the Grizzlies

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho Kershawiendo!

Spank said...

kill the ball,kid k!

Erin said...

I truly believe the 3-0 pitch is called a strike more often than it would be if that pitch came at any other point in the count. Think about how many times a borderline call at 3-0 suddenly makes the count 3-1. It's like the ump feels bad for the pitcher or something. I'm not saying that just happened; it's just something I think about a lot.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm almost out of snark at this point.

Spank said...

Matt Barnes is mad.Go punch out your wife,asshole.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

All star infield?

Erin said...

At 8:43 I wrote "Keyshaw." You should have shamed me out of this thread.

Erin said...

Don't worry, Dusty. Scully's not.

"That is not exactly the 1927 Yankees," Scully says of our lineup.

Spank said...

Right now is the only time i like hearing the Beat LA chant. #Clippers

Dusty Baker said...

This feels like we're losing 162-2 in the 79th inning.

Spank said...

no mo no no

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Bull crap

Spank said...

damn

Dusty Baker said...

Oyster Pubes nailed at the plate!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Tatonka!!!! What a throw!

Spank said...

Clippers lose! All is well in my basketball world.

Dusty Baker said...

Wonder if people will trash Chris Paul for getting thrown out in the same way they trashed Dwight Howard?

Dusty Baker said...

Dodgers saying officially it's a hammy for HanRam.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

This is one bad luck injury prone team

Dusty Baker said...

(cries)


cc: Mr F

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

What's wrong with AGon? I tuned in late

Dusty Baker said...

9 hits, 6 walks...and one run. Vin says "that's not good."

Dusty Baker said...

@DBT

Apparently he collided with an ump in the last game and now has a neck issue.

I mean, really?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

WTF? Seriously? Unbelievable

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

AJ is not immune to the RISP virus

Dusty Baker said...

We've left more men standing around than a CalTrans project tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

1-1 after seven.

Erin said...

I hate that Kershaw is doing this on the road. The stadium would be going crazy for him at home tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

We need Kershaw's bat in there even though he's at around 100 pitches.

Dusty Baker said...

Whoa, Neeebs!

Neeebs said...

I can't comment on my kindle with this stupid autocorrect

Dusty Baker said...

Cruz has to be sent down. He just can't do it. Bring up Puig or whomever at this point.

Even if he doesn't play infield.

We have to turn this Noffense around somehow.

Dusty Baker said...

Crawdaddy on deck to bat for Kid K.

Spank said...

Colors on THIS channel,holmes.

Spank said...

Can we send down Skip too?

Neeebs said...

Why is Crawford on the bench tonight?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@dusty Cruz sucks! Send his ass down

Hideo Nomo said...

Dusty, problem is Cruz can't be sent down. Only DFAed, and can refuse minors assignment.

Not like I'd be crying in my Stone if he became a free agent.

Orel said...

Finally getting to watch this on TV. What'd I miss?

Orel said...

Did Vin just say Sergio Nomo?

Orel said...

We are so incredibly bad.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah I know that about Cruz. You know what I'm saying. Get rid of that useless 2012 has been.

Hideo Nomo said...

SHIT SANDWICHES! GET YER SHIT SANDWICHES HERE!!!

Spank said...

well shit. looks like we will never get a clutch hit.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Been suffering from a particularly nasty stomach flu these last few days. My doctor says it's not been directly caused by the Dodgers shitty play, but I'm not ruling it out.

Dusty Baker said...

And get yer Poo-a-Poos, too!

Steve Sax said...

We have ten hits. They have three. We have the same number of runs. What up

Orel said...

At least Cruz can still bring it with the glove.

Orel said...

Uh, I retract that last statement.

Hideo Nomo said...

SHOOT HIM INTO SPACE

Dusty Baker said...

This won't end well, will it?

Dusty Baker said...

Seriously? Grown-ass men wearing panda hats?

Cliff Beefpile said...

I figured this team would be mediocre defensively, but they've been fucking awful so far.

Orel said...

Kenley going right at Sandoval. Fouls off a 94-mph fastball.

Dusty Baker said...

Sit down you fucking fat piece of fuckin shit!

Dusty Baker said...

"The boy from Brawley" = Sergio Romo

What do you have to say about that, Spanky?

Orel said...

Punto caught looking on a dubious call. Shows some fire — glad to see someone cares.

Spank said...

FUCK ROMO IN BOTH EARS!

Orel said...

Full count to Matty....

Orel said...

Kemp singles. It's not a K.

Orel said...

Oh good, Sellers at bat. This is what a $250 million payroll gets you?

Orel said...

Giants set up for a walk-off. Great.

Orel said...

Yup. Good night.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck this gutless team.

Steve Sax said...

11 hits and you can't get more than one run?

GET A GODDAMN HITTING COACH

Dusty Baker said...

SSPGT UP!
