Game 36 Thread: May 12 vs. Marlins, 1p

Not the best Mother's Day image, but we'll take it.

Chris Capuano vs. (0-2, 10.38!) vs. Tom Koehler (0-0, 3.18).

Happy Mama's Day! The Dodgers' winning streak currently stands at one, and only Toilet Boy Koehler stands in the way of their first series win since 1961. Koehler is the Marlins' jack of all pitching trades, relieving there and starting here, his first of the season.

"You almost feel it was champagne time," said Don Mattingly after last night's win. Who knows, Donnie, a win today and your team might just scribble on your nuts!

Nothing new or worse on Gonzalez neck injury, Mattingly: "We're just trying to get on the other side of this thing" with day off. #Dodgers

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!*


*Though you didn't ask today.

Dusty Baker said...

Going to be a hot one out there today, kids. Remember to drink plenty of liquids.

I won't forget.

Orel said...

Way to be a role model, Dusty!

Dusty Baker said...

(makes over-sized gin and tonic)

BJ Killeen said...

Driving down right now from Pismo Beach. Listening on MLB through the Bluetooth. In the immortal word of Dennis Rodman, "do me a solid," Dodgers.

Neeebs said...

Infield:Punto Gordon Schumaker Van Slyke.

Ain't it obvious why we suck?

Dusty Baker said...

Crapuano is going to waste his 4 good pitches on the day by throwing over to first so much.

Dusty Baker said...

Got something going here in the first. Two on and nobody out. And barely a zephyr, according to Vin.

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

D Line here. sitting in the car with a sleing two year old (yes, one of my own). parking in the G section, which unless your name is sax is a rare privelidge. except 50% of the cars took two spots, forcing us to park on the fringes of the G like fing commoners. please note: if you are one of those offending a-holes who took up two spots, your door handle might be covered in D-Line DNA.

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

enjoying the 570am broadcast. still in car. still with sleeping kid.

Dusty Baker said...

Weak popup by Kemp followed by too-agressive baserunning by Crawford and we're at two outs.

Dusty Baker said...

Weak grounder by Dre and we're out of the inning.

#WeakSauce

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

the marlins lineup now resembles a straight to video "major league" prequel

Dusty Baker said...

@DD

What does our lineup resemble?

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

"Larry Lawrence of Lawrenceville"

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

major league 1. (we still have some hope. and dee gordon is our willie mays hays)

Dusty Baker said...

Dude, Where's My Infield?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Happy Mother's Day, you mofos!

Dusty Baker said...

1-0 lead thanks to a SVS HR to center. Up pne day and he has already equaled Kemp's HR tally. As has of course Dee Gordon and Clayton Kershaw.

Dusty Baker said...

RIght back atcha, Cliffy!

Dusty Baker said...

Get us started, Crawdaddy!

Dusty Baker said...

Or don't.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp w a single. Dre up next with two outs.

Two-out rally time?

Dusty Baker said...

I had no idea the Bulls had a coach named Tom Thibideau.

Dusty Baker said...

@me at 2:05p

No. No it was not time.

Orel said...

You should hear Thibodeau speak, Dusty. Very definition of gravel-voiced.

Dusty Baker said...

Nats and Braves coming up, then Cards and Angels.

Scheduling gods were angry.

Dusty Baker said...

Way too early to be doing the wave, Dodger Stadium goers.

Dusty Baker said...

SVS! Nice pick to save the run.

Dusty Baker said...

First and third with one out. Punto sac scores Skip to make it 2-0.

Dusty Baker said...

"Happy Mother's Day to you, wherever you may be." - Vin

I'm not a mother, but I'm a mofo. And I'm on the sofa, for the record, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Shit almost forgot about the golf.

Like everyone forgot about this GT.

Orel said...

I guess everyone's out being good...Sons (and daughters!).

Dusty Baker said...

Tiger goes in the drink at 14.

Dusty Baker said...

As good as Ethier was yesterday at the plate, he is opposite of that today.

Dusty Baker said...

Right on, Sergio! Suck it, Tiger.

Orel said...

Dusty Baker said...

Justin Parmiggiano-Ruggiano goes yard to cut the Dodger lead to 2-1.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice catch, SVS- Special VIctims Unit!

BJ Killeen said...

Need more runs. Not happy yet.

Dusty Baker said...

Indeed, BJ. Too close for comfort. Especially w our "bullpen."

Double bogey, TIger! Hahaha.

Dusty Baker said...

Hope Crown Vic is okay.

Dusty Baker said...

2-1 Dodgers as we go to top of 7th. #SqueakyBumTIme

ps- FManU!

Orel said...

SBT? Already?

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

With our pitching "staff."

Orel said...

You mean the relief corpse?

Dusty Baker said...

I mean Bellisario.

Dusty Baker said...

Caps off to Cap today. Nice game.

Orel said...

Geico, please!

Orel said...

Crawdaddy RBI-single off Mike Dunn Dunn DUNNNNN

Dusty Baker said...

There's your Geico, brother.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey what happened to DD? Did he ever make it in, or is he still sleeping with a two-year-old?

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, E. Close one eye and pretend it's a righty pitching to you.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho ardiendo, for the record.

cc: Karina, wherever you are.

Dusty Baker said...

7 different commenters (4 Sons) and 63 comments? Come on, people!

"So Pierre even needed a relay on a ball hit to shallow left." -Vin

Dusty Baker said...

Hi, cardboard-tray-turned-into-a-hat, guy in the crowd. #DoucheMode

Dusty Baker said...

Let's see, ballgame during the day, early summer, temperature expected to be in the near 100s....naw, I don't need to bring a cap.

Dusty Baker said...

MVP of the game SVS has a flare to right to score a run making it 5-1 Blue men.

Dusty Baker said...

Two on, two out. Kenley still in. Makes the third out and we go to the 8th.

BJ Killeen said...

Getting happier. But I'm greedy. Need a few more. Almost home to watch the final innings.

Dusty Baker said...

Vin was pretty surly bagging on Juan PIerre's noodle arm. The heat must be making Vin a little salty.

Dusty Baker said...

We're almost there, BJ!

I mean we almost have a win, not that we're almost at your house.

Dusty Baker said...

Splashdown X2 for Sergio.

Dusty Baker said...

Sittdown bitch! Right on, KJ. We go to the bottom 8th.

Dusty Baker said...

Some good golf going on here at the finish.

Dusty Baker said...

League warming up.

Me, I'm staying hydrated.

Dusty Baker said...

League of his own in to close this thing out. 5-1 Dodgers. One away.

Dusty Baker said...

We're really riding this satanic boobs streak!

Dusty Baker said...

Two down.

(I think) we got this.

Dusty Baker said...

Men on second and third w two out. League does not exude confidence.

Dusty Baker said...

Two runs in. 5-3 Dodgers and we still have a game, to paraphrase Vin.

Dusty Baker said...

Do we seriously plan on a playoffs run with League as closer? I've watched a lot of baseball, and I'm pretty sure this is a recipe for disaster.

Dusty Baker said...

Tiger culero

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for taking us through it, Vinny!

Orel said...

See ya in the 8th, League.

Dusty Baker said...

^SVS

BJ Killeen said...

I'm late here. But happy

MR.F said...

Winning streak! SVS!

Must exile League!
